The Day Revival Died (Luke 15:20-32)Pastor Justin Pratt, October 22, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Our church is coming out of a wonderful week of Revival in which we saw 13 saved and countless other hearts changed and lives touched by the preaching. Our parking lots were completely full and overflowing. There were no empty seats in the building. But even though the meetings ended Wednesday, what can we do to keep the fire of being extinguished? You better believe that the Devil is going to try and throw bucket upon bucket of water on our revival flame.
So what happens when revival dies? What are the contributing factors? This morning we examine the house of the prodigal son to see what happened on The Day Revival Died.
There were two sons in that house, and all it took was the attitude of the older brother to essentially kill the spirit within the house that day.
Are you going to be the one that Satan uses to kill the spirit of revival in your home? Learn what kills the revival and how to guard yourself against it!

20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. 21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. 22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: 24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. 25Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing. 26And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. 27And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. 28And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. 29And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: 30But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. 31And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. 32It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
