Let's Rise Up and Build
The book of Ezra, chapter 1 verse 7 says, "King Cyrus also brought out the articles of the house of the Lord, which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from Jerusalem and put in the temple of his gods."
After being in captivity in Babylon for 70 years, one would have thought that God's people had lost everything. But in truth, all was not lost. It may seem, in our day, like much has been lost in the church but nothing of God is ever lost-contrary to what the enemy would have us to believe. Words of knowledge, giftings of the Spirit, prophecy, healings, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit are not lost but only being stored away. There are times and seasons when God says, "Bring out again everything that's been taken captive, and give it back to my people."
The question today is who wants to rebuild and see captivity taken captive one more time in this generation? Let's rise. Let's build.
It's time to pray.
