MESSAGE OF HOPE: REVIVAL TAKES PLACE IN THE DARKEST OF TIMES
We are being faced with many social injustices in our nation. The Church is under the weight of political pressures that we have never had to face before in America. Our hearts are longing for purity and the fear of the Lord to return to America and the American Church. If I could encourage you with a message of hope it is this: throughout the Church’s history, we often see that revival takes place at the darkest of times.
We consistently see that God has preserved a remnant; not one man, woman, or ministry, but an anointed remnant that God will raise up for the purpose of “redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16).
The Church was birthed on the day of Pentecost through the sound of a mighty rushing wind, when God filled the 120 disciples! Many of us have experienced salvation, and we each share a heritage of Christianity that we trace back to that day. The 120 began to declare and demonstrate the power of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.
I believe those who prepare themselves in purity and prepare themselves in the secret place will be the ones who usher in the next wave. It’s never been God’s desire for us to wait upon an awakening. It should never be taught that we are waiting for revival or awakening to see Kingdom power and authority manifested! (Photo via Pixabay)
This is the hour in which we must raise the banner of the Gospel high! We must be reminded that there is a world that is asking the questions, “Is God real? Did Jesus really rise from the dead?” The Gospel hasn’t changed. It is the power of God that brings others to repentance and salvation. It is the same Gospel that heals and delivers; the very same Gospel that demonstrates the power of Christ’s resurrection.
A Great Shaking
God is raising up a remnant, a company of prophets, even in the midst of a great shaking!
The Word of God tells us that everything that can be shaken, will be shaken (Hebrews 12:27). Let us be reminded in these times of shaking that we are part of a Kingdom which cannot be moved (Hebrews 12:28).
I heard the Lord say to me recently, “Those that survive the shaking will be a voice for a generation!”
One Sound in a Generation
When the Bible mentions the prophets of old, it says that their sound went into the earth and into the ends of the world. I’m entirely convinced that the problems we are facing in our nation will not be won in the flesh, but in the Spirit! As the Word of God says, “…Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit…!“ (Zechariah 4:6). It is the hour where we must begin to hear from Heaven and release a new sound! (Photo via Pixabay)
I want to encourage leaders, pastors, prophets, apostles, intercessors: there is a generation that needs to hear your sound and the message that God has placed in your heart!
