Glory: Revival’s Destination
I’m reading a book highly recommended by Jeremy Riddle of the Anaheim Vineyard.
I have a suspicion this book is helping me ‘get’ a key to revival.
‘GLORY: Experiencing the Atmosphere of Heaven’ by Ruth Ward Heflin.
The mid-70’s Charismatic renewal was the ‘flow of the River’ Ruth was a part of, and the style of her writings could definitely make some modern ‘movement readers’… wonder what’s happening. In those days, our (Charismatic) community worship and life-style was all about ‘going after God’s Glory’.
We were all learning a whole new direction to live towards, and like any new adventure, a lot of baby steps.
God’s Glory is revival’s destination, and Ruth helps unpack some of the ways that works in a ramp-up to revival.
I just love her simple road-map in the front of the book:
“Praise… until the spirit of worship comes.
Worship… until the Glory comes.
Stand in the Glory!”Ruth Ward Heflin
The idea of ‘sewing into Heaven’, based on Hosea 2:21-23 is kinda cool.
