I have understood that revival does not begin the way many think.
And not everyone needs a revival. Some need to just ascend to a higher place in God and not necessarily to be brought back to life.
To revive is to bring something back to life, to bring something back to a former state of life, and not all Christians need that.
Many are not asleep, many are powerfully seeing the miracles others are expecting to see when they are revived.
The Revival I see, is something that begins with the Christian, but it goes on to affect the unbeliever.
The unbeliever never had life, so how can he be returned to life? What he needs is vivification.
The word of God clearly explains to us what revival is all about;
“Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth,” Hosea 6:1-3.
They are three things mentioned in the above scriptures worthy of notice,
First, a returning unto to God for healing and binding up.
This is a place where strongholds are broken, relationships restored, hearts healed. This is revival.
When things that held us bound are broken, our hurts healed and we return to a high state of vigor in God we are revived.
Secondly, there is a raising us up to live in His sight.
This is spiritual ascendancy. Here the Daystar rises in our hearts. We move up to Kingdom thinking.
We begin to walk in the realities of The Kingdom. Here Jesus, the Daystar, is dwelling richly in our hearts. Here we are dwelling with God. We live with God in that secret place.
Thirdly, there is following on to know God where his manifestation is as certain as the morning.
This is the part that affects the unbeliever. Here from our relationship with God things begin to happen.
The Power of God invades our meetings, homes, gatherings, to do a new work with unbelievers and to start the process again with sleeping Christians.
Revival has already begun with others, some are in the third phase already waiting for the rain. In some it will soon begin and some do not even need it but just a going up higher in the knowledge of God.
May the mercies of God help us to return to God at this time in truth and receive all the blessings tied to revival.
May The LORD make bright clouds and give us showers to as many green grasses that are expecting the rain.
May The LORD Increase the Knowledge of many of us that are praying to ascend higher in the things of God. Amen
In an encounter, I saw someone give The LORD three fishes and he put these fishes in an earthen pond. The next day the pond became an entire town full of fishes.
Coming out The Holy Ghost led me to;
“And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her,” Zechariah 2:4-5.
“A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time,” Isaiah 60:22.
Then The LORD said, “This is the day of the superabundance, I AM exceeding your petitions, I AM exceeding your imaginations.
I AM doing a work you will see and your heart will fear. It is season I AM glorifying myself in Zion like never before.
In this season, I AM making thousands of little ones, nations of small ones. I AM totally breaking the boundaries of your habitations. Your store houses will not have room for all My Blessings.
You will dwell safely without fear, because My Fire surrounds you and My Glory is in your midst a protection.”
Blessings in Christ,
