"REVIVAL OR RUIN?"
Part II
2 Chronicles 7:14, 21-22
November 15, 1922
INTRODUCTION:
One wrong choice usually leads to another one.
Are you on the road to revival in your life? If you have
not exited onto the road of Humility which leads to Prayer,

departed."
* In this passage you see the possibility of both
and history records that God's people
experienced both.
T.S.:
In the last two verses of this chapter we read about
the road to ruin. Last week I asked you, "Are you
on the road to Revival?" If you are not, then you
are on the road of ruin. This morning permit me
to ask you:
I. ARE YOU ON THE ROAD TO RUIN? (vs. 21-22)
T.plsin: (v. 21)
Notice the past tense, "was exalted,' and will
walk by "astonished" meaning they will be appalled
at the desolation and destruction. They will ask the
question, "Why has the Lord done thus to this la ...
