We see another way the Lord advanced His work: through revival and revelation. The Lord worked through Ezra to further establish the Scriptural foundation that would secure the church for ages to come. We consider: 

  • First, the revival the Lord brought through Ezra’s ministry. 
  • Second, how the Lord advanced His revelation through Ezra. 

We are challenged to examine our own lives: we mustn’t sit back and think there’s nothing we can do to revive the nations. Like Ezra, we must let our horror over what’s going on in the world drive us to our knees in prayer to ask the Lord for revival.
