Weekly Watch Focus: Revival in China

FRIDAY, Dec 5, 2014, In this Christmas Season, we celebrate the rapid spread of Christianity in China. In an article this November, the secular magazine, Economist, recognized that at this present rate of swift growth there will be 250 million committed Christian believers in China. Despite the Communist party’s consistent persecution over the last half-century, Christianity has steadily spread. It is getting harder for the Communist government to control this revival which is even spreading within its own party ranks. Many in the intelligentsia discern the roots of Western strength are its Christian foundations. They are recognizing that Christian believers make some of the most conscientious, helpful citizens. Let us praise God for the revival of Christianity in China. Pray for the 1,000s of house churches and their pastors.  We pray for those who still undergo persecution. May the Holy Spirit continue to sweep through every corner of China. We bless the Church in China this Christmas.

Is. 60:1,2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”

Acts 2:18, “And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.”

2 Cor. 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
