Reprinted Article from August 1955Praying for Revival Fires
The supreme motive of our churches and our fellowships MUST be to win souls to Jesus Christ by exalting His Name. We contend for the faith so more souls can be saved and God glorified. We beseech along the lines of separation and consecration so we can win more souls to Christ. OUR CHIEF AIM AND AMBITION IS TO REACH THE LOST!
“How long is it”, asked an old Mohammedan woman in Bengal, “since Jesus died for sinful people? Look at me! I am old, I have prayed, given alms, gone to the holy shrines, become as dust from fasting, and all this is useless. Where have YOU been all this time?”
From the white streets of Casablanca, “Why”, cried the Moor to a Bible-seller, “have YOU not run everywhere with this Book? Why do so many of my people not know of the Jesus whom it proclaims? Why have YOU hoarded it to YOURSELVES? Shame on YOU”. To be revived is to witness.
Keep having REVIVALS until YOU have REVIVAL!!!

FRUSTRATIONS OF AN EVANGELIST
Now I know that when you look at my title for this article, you might automatically think I will be addressing small offerings or poor planning on the pastors part with regard to praying, or lodging, or meals, it is not my subject for this particular article.
First of all, many assume that we are always in meetings and don’t call on us for help. I recently had a dear pastor say to me, “I wanted to have you in last month, but felt you would be too busy to come to my small work.” Listen, Brethren, I desire to be used anywhere the Lord will open the door; so don’t assume we are always in meetings.
The second frustration that I, and other brethren, have is the coldness we feel when we slip into a church service while we are on the road. It is not our intention to be bums for Christ and beg for meetings. It is our desire to obey God’s Word that states we are “not to for forsake the assembling of ourselves together.” When I was a Pastor, I considered it an honor to have brethren visit me when they could, as it was a compliment to our ministry. So, Brother Pastor, don’t flinch when we walk through your door. We are there to worship with God’s people, and we pray you will accept us in like you do any other visitor. If you just acknowledge our presence, you don’t even have to invite us to lead in silent prayer. I must admit, however, if other visitors are treated with the coldness my wife and I have experienced, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did not come back. Please, when one of your brothers in the work of the ministry shows up on your doorstep, don’t flinch and act like he’s infringing on your territory. Just treat him like you would want to be treated if you showed up in a strange town, desiring to obey God’s command to not forsake the assembling of yourselves.
There! I’ve said it, and I feel much better. I love the Brethren and enjoy having fellowship with those of like faith.
Banyas lies on the ancient trade route from Acre to Damascus, standing on the S. slope of Mount Hermon and possibly occupying the site of the Biblical Baal-gad (Joshua 13:5). The grotto above the source of the Jordan was dedicated to the God Pan (Paneion) by the Greeks, who called the neighboring town Paneas. Antiochus the Great fought several battles here. Herod built a temple in honour of Augustus, and his son Philippus made the town the capital of his tetrarchy, calling it Caesarea Philippi. In the New Testament, Jesus and his disciples visited the area of Caesarea-Philippi. This is where it is said that Peter confessed that “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:13-28. Agrippa II, who first destroyed the town and then rebuilt it, called it Caesarea-Neronian, in honour of the Emperor Nero. Caesarea-Neronias fell to the province of Syria after Agrippa’s death. When Septimus Severus effected the partition of that province in c. AD 200, Caesarea Neronias was included in Syrophoenicia. In the 4C it became a bishop’s seat. It was fought over by the Arabs and Christians during the Crusades, and was captured by al-Mu’assam. Jews lived in the town in the Middle Ages and they knew it as Dan.
This is one of the three great sources of the Jordan, and has been dedicated to local deities since ancient times. A cultic niche flanked by pilasters and Greek dedicatory inscriptions is to be found beside the entrance, which leads to grottoes hewn from the rock. Statues of Pan formerly stood here. Parts of a Herodian building have been uncovered to the North.
The waters come out of the mouth of a cave forming the head waters of the Jordan River. The water comes from a spring that is feed from the melting snow of Mount Hermon. There is a small water fall on the trail and you can see fig trees that are eight to 12 inches across and the base, standing approximately 20-25 feet tall.
Ceasarea-Philippi was a place of reality as well as a place of answers for Peter. We all have a Ceasarea-Philippi in our lives. The question is: Have we faced reality as to who Christ really is? And have we gotten the right answer?
