I’ve sat on this for a day or so, but it is laying heavy on my heart.
The LORD is encouraging me to release it now!
It is a serious burden that’s been on me for a while, and The LORD has now released it to me to post.
I was discussing the present prophetic world with an old friend — a Revivalist himself — with in depth, first hand experience of revival.
We were discussing that it seems that a lot of the prophetic had been taking a divergent path from Scriptures.
Prophets are more concerned with talking about the world system, and very much less about things more edifying and correcting to The Church.
I answered saying that I think many are prophesying against the world system, if for no other reason than it is an easy target.
However, the revelations coming from the world system are increasingly needed — because so many Christians still have their heads buried deeply in the sand, because they just don’t want to hear how corrupt so much of the world is today.
Revival is prophesied, but the necessity of preparation is ignored.
Calls for repentance are still deeply unpopular, as are calls for a “solemn assembly” in order to lead to The Church to Repentance — most people just prefer to enjoy political bashing as a light relief from all the gloom and doom the media is putting out.
And Yes, prophets too are afflicted by fear of what men say just as much as the average pew warmer! It’s not exactly ear-tickling — but it’s taking the focus off our own sin by pointing out others sin.
I’ve asked this before, but I’m prompted by The Holy Spirit to ask again — is there only a little — or no interest at all — in calling Intercessors and Prophets together, wherever we are located, for what Joel 1:14 calls A Sacred (or Solemn) Assembly for the purpose of Repentance before God, and for Him to “forgive our sin and heal our land”, or put another way, “water our dry land”?
The need is greater than ever before!
Just a suggestion, a serious one, for some of us to pray about.
Should we, can we, call a Sacred or Solemn Assembly, in line with Joel 1:14, to Repent and cry out for god to heal our land? — as outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
I’m serious, please answer in similar vein.
