Amid great suffering and other issues, Native American communities have been experiencing powerful revival.

God is Moving

Yet, in the midst of the suffering, Stands-Over-Bull and her husband Russell say God is on the move.

“We can feel and sense the rumblings of revival, and when I say revival I mean people’s hearts turning back to God,” she shared.

“We’ve been having healing revivals over the online church. God’s been healing people through social media. People are giving their hearts to the Lord,” explained Russell Stands-Over-Bull….

Deep Revival Roots

Russell said the Pentecostal roots of revival run deep in his family and the Crow Nation. His mother, Sharon Stands-Over-Bull, is also a pastor and Crow elder. She recalled how in 1906, her grandmother attended the Azusa Street Revival in California.

“While they were there, they were privileged to receive the Holy Spirit, and they came back to the Crow Reservation, proclaiming that God is Lord over the Crow Reservation,” Sharon told CBN News.

“Whole communities were touched by the fire of the Holy Spirit, and the Crows eventually became known throughout Indian Country as the center for Pentecost,” explained Russell. “This was the capital for Pentecost, and still is considered that by many neighboring tribes.”

‘Jesus Christ is Lord’

Leaders of the Crow Tribe have even put up a sign which boldly proclaims that “Jesus Christ is Lord on the Crow Nation”. It also has a Scripture that reads, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.” — Psalm 33:12 KJV

In addition, the southeast Montana tribe passed a 2013 legislative resolution “to honor God for his great blessings upon the Crow Tribe and to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord of the Crow Indian Reservation.” They also fly the flag of Israel next to the sign….

Sustaining Revival

Russell Stands-Over-Bull said the goal now is teaching his church to “sustain revival” through fasting and prayer.

“So when we host the Presence of God, Heaven comes down, and there’s no sickness in Heaven. There’s no poverty in Heaven. There’s no lack in Heaven,” he explained. “So when we invite the kingdom of God, that’s how we sustain revival, and that’s our quest is to keep this revival fire going.”

This encourages me so very much. Our son-in-law has recently come to understand much about the Holy Spirit, but he still wonders if miracles are meant for today. I’m so thankful this will help him realize we here in America are going to need to witness the moving of the Holy Spirit, just as those in far countries are witnessing. Praise God He never changes!!!

Father God, in Jesus mighty name I pray for each and every Native American nation. Prayers for Your healings upon wounded hearts from injustices of the past. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 My heart is seeking a mighty outpouring of Your Great Salvation upon the Apache, Hopi and Navajo nations. In Your Steadfast Love may revival breakthrough with rejoicing and peace and new beginnings all to Your Praise and Glory Lord.
