A Tear-stained Bible

“… all the people wept as they heard the words of the Law.” (Nehemiah 8:9b)


“We are not told when the people began weeping; we are simply told that they were. At some point during the sermon they began to weep and could not control themselves. … perhaps God is giving you the ministry of tears. Remember, the revival that began in one heart full of tearful brokenness (Neh. 1:4) had now spread to the people for whom he wept. Maybe the brokenness in your heart is the precursor to the brokenness and blessing God longs to send to a wider circle of His people.” (Revival in the Rubble, p.171)

So Much Rests Upon “if” …


“If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it. And if at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, and it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will relent of the good that I had intended to do to it.” (Jeremiah 18:7-10)
