Genesis 1:11-14 11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day. 14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Luke 4:17-22 17And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.

70But before a just God can pour out His judgment upon a people, He has to make a way of escape for everyone who desires to receive it. This is your day of visitation. You might not want to believe it because a uneducated minister said it. But don’t pay no attention to the messenger. Pay attention to the Message you’re hearing. Now, let us pray.

61Our Heavenly Father, that’s the desire of every heart tonight, here. Oh, look at them, Lord. Maybe fifteen, twenty-five people raised their hand. They want to receive you just now.
O great Spirit that started out back in the early age, lived in the—the men, Who lived in the hearts of Your prophets. And down through the age You come and vindicated Yourself. How we can see David climbing that mountain, looking back over Jerusalem, rejected by his own. And he wept as he went up the mount. And just a few hundred years after that, we see the Son of David rejected, setting on that same mountain saying, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how oft would I have hovered you as a hen would her chicks, but you would not. If you’d have only knowed your day of visitation.”
And dear Father, tonight in my heart, I feel the Holy Spirit crying out: “Oh, America, America, how oft would the Holy Spirit have give you a real outpouring of a revival. How He would have gathered you and held you in safety. But I believe you didn’t understand the day of your visitation. You scorned the prophets. You’ve called them fanatics. You’ve put them in jail. You . . . Oh, how oft would He have took you.”
And tonight, Lord, to the individual, Thou seldom deals with a nation, but You do, with individuals. And tonight, hands has went up and wants to embrace You, Lord. I pray that the Holy Spirit will show those people that You love them. Embrace them into Your Bosom just now. And when this service is over, Father, I pray that they’ll go out of here the happiest people that there is in Chicago. Grant it, Father
