Reclaiming the Land: God's Formula for Revival
In Reclaiming the Land, Pastor Rusty Kuhn has clearly outlined Godâ€™s formula for revival that God has given in II Chronicles 7:14. Reclaiming the Land unfolds the biblical principle that if you plan and promote your agenda, bestowing glory and honor upon yourself rather than Jesus, the hand of Godâ€™s blessings will not fall. However, as demonstrated in this book through the principles of Godâ€™s Word, if we choose to pursue Godâ€™s way for His glory, His promise will be kept: â€śThen I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.â€ť
For the past several years, God has given me the burden to write this study. He has given me a burden for seeing revival in our land and in our time, which is the purpose of this study. Not a week of meetings that soon is forgotten or isolated movements that soon fade, but a mighty moving of Godâ€™s powerful hand that spreads throughout the land capturing the glory of His splendor.
Through my studies, I am fully convinced that God desires to move mightily upon the land. Jesus said in Mathew 5:15, â€śLet your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.â€ť God wants His glory to be seen. So what is the problem you might ask? We are. We have become so obsessed with â€śusâ€ť that we have not allowed God to be seen through us. We glory in the works and wisdom of man rather than standing in awe of the greatness of God. Godâ€™s heart is that His glory is seen by the world through us. However, we must get â€śusâ€ť out of the way.
Volumes of books could be written about the problems our churches are facing. Even the most spiritually blind can see them. However, this is not the purpose of this study.
This study is about seeking the solution. In this study we will take a close look at II Chronicles 7:14 along with its biblical context.
