It is one of the ways of God. Periodically in history He opens the windows of heaven and comes down with His manifest presence. We call these moments “revival” as it affects the church and “spiritual awakening” as it impacts people without Christ.
Spiritual results happen at an accelerated pace with stunning results. These outpourings bring a course correction to nations and most importantly, they glorify God. Nationwide movements usually happen at the worst times in a culture, when the church realizes their only hope is God and lift a united cry of desperation.
The nation of Israel holds a unique place in God’s history. In Ezekiel 36, we hear from God about what He is going to do to restore Israel after a season of judgment for their rebellion. God tells them He is about to come and fulfill His covenant to them. Not because of their goodness, but His righteousness. This is God's work for God's glory. Fourteen times in Ezekiel 36:23-38, in 16 verses He says, "I will."
Although Israel is unique, we should pray for God to do these kinds of things in our day in our nation!
I WILL …VINDICATE.
VS. 23 “I will vindicate the holiness of My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord,” declares the Lord God, “when I prove Myself holy among you in their sight.
I WILL … RETURN YOU.
VS. 24 “For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land.
I WILL … CLEANSE YOU.
VS. 25 “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.
I WILL …TRANSFORM YOU.
VS. 26 “Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
I WILL … PUT MY SPIRIT IN YOU SO YOU'RE ABLE TO OBEY.
VS. 27 “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances.
I WILL … BE YOUR GOD.
VS. 28 “You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God.
I WILL … SAVE YOU FROM UNCLEANNESS.
VS. 29 “Moreover, I will save you from all your uncleanness; and I will call for the grain and multiply it, and I will not bring a famine on you.
I WILL … PROSPER THE LAND.
I WILL … REBUILD THE CITIES.
I WILL … INCREASE YOUR MEN.
Father, we long for Your manifest presence in our nation, our cities, our homes, our churches, and our lives. I pray that You would “rend the heavens and come down” and bring a mighty, nationwide revival in the church and spiritual awakening among those without You. And, I ask that all you have done in the past, you will do in our land and our world today and that You would be seen as the great God that You are.

There are thousands, perhaps millions of people who believe they are Christians who will never enter heaven. This is not my evaluation, but the clear teaching of Christ Himself.
Christ spoke of false prophets who "come to you in sheep clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves" (Matt 7:15). It is not the outward clothing, but the inward heart that indicates a true believer.
What is the only way to know the difference between a professing believer and a real believer?

Of all the things Jesus could have addressed in the Sermon on the Mount, it's fascinating that He spends a good bit of time addressing worry. In fact, He commands us not to be worried: "Do not be worried about your life."
We are champion worriers. God knows that worry is so counterproductive. Not only is it useless, but it ties us up, destroys our faith, is a poor witness to those who are watching, and dishonors God. So, to help us He gives His true followers multiple reasons why worry is so useless.
