When I first wrote this, it was before it’s time.
The LORD brought it back today, so the time is right for this Word.
I asked God one day — if we have a role, a ministry, as prophets of revival, please show me something different.
This is what I got.
Revival from Heavens Perspective
I seem to be in a Vision today — I’m high above the earth, higher than a normal passenger plane.
I can see land below me. I see the sea at the coast. We swoop down for a closer look and I can see an angry sea crashing upon the coastline.
In some places the sea just bounces off, having no effect, but in other places I see the land being eroded by the relentless waves pounding the shore.
We move up higher and move inland a way. I see clouds gathering, swirling around — in several places. There seems to be like a Fire in the centre and it seems to be growing.
Again we draw closer and I see there’s smoke in the swirling clouds and that pinpoint of Fire is actually a wildfire inferno!
It spread rapidly. The clouds follow it dumping rain on it — but to no real effect as the Fire keeps spreading and growing.
Eventually, two, or three such Fires draw close enough together to join and make a bigger Fire. I can’t see through the cloud, smoke, and Fires.
I see plumes of white smoke curling up through the whole conflagration seemingly disappearing as they hit the upper atmosphere.
Then, quite suddenly, I hear a shofar sound, long and clear — startlingly close by me! I see many angels appear round about me, and they’re plunging into the cloud, smoke, and flames.
I hear a voice close by — “This is the war that is Revival in the heavenlies!”
The voice continued, “The storm at the coast is the war for your territory. The clouds are the enemy’s possession, sent to wash away any signs of Revival.
The smoke and flames come from the Revival itself, where My Holy Spirit pours oil on the spark that starts Revival.”
Then the voice continued, “In answer to your question — the white smoke is the prayers of the intercessors as they held on tight to revival and called for help in making it first stay, then spread.”
“My son, you are watching revival from My Perspective, but I have a task for you too!
The reason I AM showing you this is that I want you to ignite the spark that starts it all off.
I want you to spark revival in individuals, in groups, in Churches, in towns and villages.
I want you to help Me bring revival once again to My People and to the lost around you!”
“But LORD!” I protested.
He stopped me — “You’re not on your own. There will be many like you bringing My Words of Encouragement to My People!”
He told me that it’s started in many places and will start in many other places soon.
Let me ask you all, who will commit to being a spark of revival to one, or two, or many people around about you?
Don’t tell me — tell The LORD!
But don’t volunteer unless you mean every word. It’s time to get very serious about Kingdom business, especially Revival!
This Word echoes through time for today. It is for such a time as this.
You and I are here for such a time as this. The Holy Spirit is waiting for us to step into our destiny at precisely this time.
Just do it! \0/
Children and The Coming Revival!
“As a Child!” — Another Word about children in the coming Revival!
For over ten years The LORD has kept the phrase “As a child!” in the forefront of my thinking.
I’ve seen the younger generation — from 5-25 — leading the armies of The LORD in this season that is almost upon us.
Then, today, I commented to someone thus — “It’s something The LORD is laying on my heart. This coming move is going to be “led” by kids, youngsters, and it’s going to be simple, not complex deeply profound theology, but simple – “as a child” springs to mind.”
Oh, how this resonated in my spirit, and The LORD, in His infinite mercy and wisdom, began to unpack this comment a little bit.
“This coming move is going to be led by kids, youngsters.
I’ve said it before — and I’ll probably say it many times again — this young generation will lead the way in the coming Revival.
My older generation may have the experience and anointing to lead you all into the presence of The LORD, you might usher in the Glory of God — but it’s the youngsters who will get you all into the presence of other youngsters.
It’s the youngsters who will win the ‘lost generation’ who have never been confronted by Jesus Christ. Through them, they will reach the families.
Through the families, they will reach the neighbours, then the street, the town, and The Nations!”
“It’s going to be simple“ — Children talk to other children in children’s language!
When we try to talk like children, we come across very condescending and totally out of touch. Kids keep it simple, in language all kids understand.
They rarely use big words and when they come to things they don’t understand, they ask questions! It’s almost that simple.
“Not complex deeply profound theology, but simple “ — Children understand remarkably profound topics probably better than we realise.
They communicate these things simply, without the theological hang ups which we adults argue on a semantic level. Kids grasp the basics of faith and salvation very much more easily than adults.
Because of this, they don’t have preconceived ideas or expectations, and they definitely don’t have vivid memories of rebuttals and hurts, as we old ones do!
“”As a child” springs to mind” — If we do not start coming to or approaching The LORD ‘as a child’, then we will debate and argue ourselves, and those we seek to reach, out of our and their destination.
I really do believe this with all my heart.
We approach and present salvation with our intellect rather than with our heart. We need to present salvation with our hearts — as a child!
When God calls us to come ‘as a child’, He really does mean AS A CHILD.
So, next time you come behind The Ceil, come seeking Daddy! He’ll tell you all you need to know!
