All Christians need periods of revival throughout their lives. Christian growth never ends! The problem for many is that they don’t know where to begin with God to insure a well-rounded growth and foundation of Jesus Christ to live the Word successfully. I recently read The Spirit Of Revival by Pastor Ewang Nelson Mfortaw. One of the most amazing benefits of the book is how deep it goes into the Word with such simplicity that even new Christians can easily benefit from its teachings immediately. I used it to better explain the empowerment we have in Christ to help a fellow Christian attain victory over a difficult situation he was facing. It was exciting to see the Word come alive for him as his anxiety was replaced with peace.
Pastor Nelson clearly shows his readers how to study the Word, meditate upon the scriptures and act upon them to live salvation to the fullest by faith and in liberty! Reading his book is like taking an exciting journey through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, while at the same time, receiving deliverance from the religious, man-made doctrines that keep Christians in bondage rather than faith. We learn that by living through Christ, we have authority in His name to do all things. If you’re unsure about your authority in Christ, the teachings given will guide you into a position of strength in spirit, soul, mind and body to live your destiny. You’ll no longer wonder if your life has purpose because you’ll learn how to take your place in the Body of Christ.
For those who can’t find joy or happiness, I loved the “eye opening” teachings that reveal great success and victory by learning how to abide in Christ for others. We’re shown with scripture that a clear path to lasting joy, peace and happiness is realized when the Christian becomes obedient to the Word for others by faith in God rather than by performing good deeds to please Him. This important lesson leads the reader to a deep understanding of God’s character with a beautiful message of His compassion and love for His children throughout the chapters.
Many times, people look at God as vengeful, eager to punish those who make mistakes with trials and tribulations. But Pastor Nelson proves that God takes joy in our learning the message of our trials to promote us and further bless us. He takes away the confusion of God’s intent toward man by showing that when we suffer or experience trials and learn from them, we fully possess the glory in us rather than experiencing lengthy suffering from complaining as the Israelites did. Thus, The Spirit Of Revival is a book of great wisdom and knowledge that leads the reader to revival while it refreshes the soul with beautiful psalms, prayers and poems.
This is a book that brings peace to the believer and rest from the tiring fight against Satanic forces attacking us to sin and live in misery. Christians all have the same opportunity to rest in Christ rather than fighting Satan who has come to steal, kill and destroy. We are free to enjoy the abundant life given us by Christ and free of sin because all who are reborn in Christ are a new creation in Him. For anyone who desires to live the reality of liberty in Christ, I highly recommend The Spirit of Revival by Ewang Nelson Mfortaw. Prepare to be immersed into the truth of God’s Word with actions and signs following. You’re going to realize Biblical truths that many never learn in their lifetime and which will prepare you for new Biblical revelations in Pastor Nelson's future publications, so keep this book close at hand! Use it for Bible reference, a Bible guide for living and a book of prophecy.
