Hundreds Turn to God During West Virginia Revival

A spiritual revival has been sweeping through southern West Virginia where hundreds have reportedly turned to the Lord and been saved.
 
CBN News reports that the revival began as a three-day event at a local church, featuring Tennessee evangelist Matt Hartley. However, the revival continued after the three days were up, and has been going on for three weeks.
 
"This is not man-made, charismatic, hyper spiritual," Hartley told CBN News. "This is the presence of God that is overwhelming us, that is being released upon hungry people that are tired of just stagnant Christianity and ‘safe’ church. They want Jesus more than anything else. That's why they're here.”
 
Hartley also spoke at the local high school in Williamson, WV where hundreds of students turned to God.
 
"Four-hundred to 450 students got saved at Mingo Central from Matt Hartley coming in and speaking at a voluntary prayer club," Katie Endicott, with the Mingo Central High Prayer Club, told CBN News.
 
The revival has spread like wildfire, from school to school and church to church. Some are calling it the biggest revival ever to have taken place in the history of southern West Virginia.
 
One woman reported that her husband, who she has been praying for for years, came to faith through the revival.
 
In addition, a local student said that because of the revival, “We're starting to have prayer circles at school and we're reading and having Bible studies at school.”
 
Hartley believes that the revival will reach beyond West Virginia and has the potential to spread around the world.
 
"I believe God has preserved this state for the end-time awakening that's coming to America," he said. “I believe that this is the beginning of where it happens and it's going to spread as a wild-fire throughout the nations of this world, that Jesus is going to be exalted.”
 
"And the more Jesus is exalted the more the river of God is going to flow -- and we have not seen anything yet to what God is releasing," he concluded.

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Character

Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
