Understanding the Threefold Calling and Ministry of an Authentic Revivalist.
The ministry of the apostle and the prophet and the evangelist are Divinely connected, when it comes to the ministry and calling of the revivalist.
The revivalist is called as an apostolic missionary. A trailblazer. He is sent to break open new virgin territory. He is sent to pioneer God’s new seasons of Revelation into the virgin heart of the church.
For this apostolic task he is equipped with the extraordinary working of God’s Power. He operates Hand in hand with God as The LORD Supernaturally intervenes in every Heavenly ordained meeting to speak, work and manifest His Presence and Power in the most profound and unusual way
As he goes forth on this apostolic mission, the prophetic Anointing of the voice of The LORD is upon him, sounding forth and announcing new Spiritual dimensions in Revelation that needs to be established in the virgin territory of the heart of the church.
Once this prophetic sound is released, announcing the new dimension of God, pointing the way forward, the Fire of God burns in his bones with the passion of an all consuming desire for God’s people to enter into that which The LORD is calling them to presently come to know and experience.
The burning passion of the heart of the evangelist is Ignited in blazing Fire and becomes the trailblazing ministry in operation, as The LORD compassionately calls His people to turn from their stagnation and from dead religious worship, to come and to drink deeply from the brooks where His River has been opened to flow.
These three ministries in simultaneous operation form the unique ministry gift that is known as “revival” in its authenticity.
A revivalist is a prophet called on an apostolic journey to minister from the burning heart of an evangelist to bring God’s people from stale religion into the Living experience of knowing Him in the expression of His Life, Power and the Reality of His Living Person, and for His Life and the new Spiritual dimension in Revelation of Him to be birthed within them.
Prophets sent as apostolic pioneers, open a new oasis in the Spirit for God’s people. When they do – they cry and travail for everyone to “freely come and drink without money and without cost!”
