Sunday Evening Evangelistic Message #62

Many people in the Bible have given up a basic human function, eating, in order to engage in a practice called fasting. We know from Scripture that Moses fasted, Elijah fasted, Paul fasted, and Jesus fasted. The children of Israel were commanded to fast on certain days, and the kings and leaders of Israel called the nation to fast and pray during times of repentance or times of great need for the nation.

We find that our nation is in a time of great need right now. Never before have we seen an immorality such as homosexuality endorsed and supported by our president. Abortion is still legal in our country. The financial crisis is getting worse. Families are breaking up. And with the continuing crisis in the Middle East and what seems like the break down of the Eurozone, the world seems like it is teetering on the brink of collapse.

At the beginning of last week, the Lord led me to call for a 165-day period of fasting and prayer for our nation leading up to Election Day. In light of that, I want to share with you a brief message based on Isaiah 58:1-12 in which God talks about the fasting practices of the nation of Israel. I believe this message will provide some insight into how we should approach any time of fasting in our lives
