REVIVAL

The Gospel Message NOTE: World events, family issues, friend’s deaths, and moving twice (one state to another), has kept me away from the computer, to which I profusely apologize. Please don’t give up on me. Like everyone else, its been a rough year.

Part One: One step at a time
I do not operate in the prophet’s office, but I believe that every believer prophesies in part [1]. I feel very strongly in my recent thoughts, which I will share below. My mind wants to say, “Thus saith the Lord.” I believe it be prudent not to invoke the name of the Lord. Has it been God who whispered in my spirit, or has it been my thoughts of frustration because of the events happening in the world today and knowing what’s coming? My quandary is, “Am I obeying God, or am I disobeying God?” The Lord frowns heavily on those who speak for Him when He hasn’t spoken. This is a definite no-no [2].

Therefore, until God promotes me to the office of prophet, I will be content to pursue the blessing of my present office, writing for the Lord. Thank you, Jesus. Given 1 Corinthians 13:9, I will leave things in God’s hands to do as He will and for judgement. I will leave the interpretation to you, my readers. Does this speak to your spirit, as being from God, or am I, in fact, disobeying God by NOT signing God’s name to my insights? I’d be interested in your thoughts.
My Thoughts

For the last four years plus, my thoughts have inundated my spirit with the passion for souls. I knew the signs of the times and have shouted same for many years. Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 16:3 and again in Luke 12:56. However, I am not alone. I am keenly aware that many, if not all believers, know that we are in the last days of human government. It is exciting that today, Bible prophecy is happening before our very eyes. I am also excited that Jesus Christ redeemed my soul. I want others to have the peace and eternal life like I do, and it hurts when folks spit in God’s eye and reject Him. I cannot fathom people rejecting love, let alone salvation and eternal life. The spitting hurts because the Spirit of God indwells me, and by extension, the spitting hurts me.

America has already experienced two shakings (judgements) and will experience greater shakings unless she repents. A period of grace is always available after a shaking to give people the chance to repent. If they do not repent, the period of grace ends and there will be more shaking, worse than the last and at a greater pace. The only hope for America and the world is revival. Is there biblical precedent for this?

There is a 19-year mystery in the Bible that holds true today [3]. Nebuchadnezzer invaded the Southern Kingdom (Jerusalem) in 605BC. The greater shakings came in 586BC, giving them a 19-year span of grace in hopes of repentance. America’s first shaking was 9/11, when a group of foreign nationals invaded America with our own planes. Add 19-years to 2011, and you get 2020. 2020 has been a year of greater shaking. COVID, Voter fraud, relentless and futile Democrat attacks against our president, and much more. America, as a whole, still refuses to repent.

We need to be praying for revival as King Solomon did at his coronation [4]. The verb translated pray in God’s promise [5], also means intervene, interpose, to arbitrate.

v14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. [2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV]

A very familiar verse, indeed, but many folks take it out of context and do not reveal the entire story. Context is everything to the Word of God. The verse before gives us some context. There are some definite parallels between God’s promise to Solomon and the things of today.

The two operative words are “If” and “then.” God requires four things before His promise: 1) Humble ourselves 2) pray 3) seek His face, and 4) turn from our wicked ways (REPENT). Then, and only then, will He heal our land. So, if you want to help save America, get on your knees and fulfill God’s requirements. The ball is in your (our) court.
While everyone who cares about America and its people should literally be on their knees, this day belongs to the intercessors. There needs to be a hunger for God. The KJV says to pray without ceasing, and the NLT says, to never stop praying. Because of free will, God will do nothing until we ask (pray) [6].

There is only one rule about revival? There is no revival without repentance. God goes to and fro looking for the one who has a committed heart toward Jesus [7]. It is going to take prayer, a committed heart, and a hunger for Jesus and for the things of God. I choose to be one of the ones. My exhortation to you? DO NOT take this lightly. Get on your knees. Are you with me?
______________________
[1] 1 Corinthians 13:9
[2] Deuteronomy 13:1-5; James 3:1. I am not the only one who believes that God has told us everything in His Word. So, make sure what you’re hearing aligns with God’s Word. God WILL NOT REVEAL something to you, contrary to His Word (Psalms 89:34; Psalms 138:2). It was a capital offense in the Old Testament and makes for a stricter judgement on Judgement Day in the New Testament.
[3] Jonathan Cahn’s books, The Harbinger and The Harbinger II explains this quite nicely, so I won’t belabor it here in this blog. I highly recommend these books. Plus the Paradigm and the Oracle.
[4] James 5:16
[5] 2 Chronicles 7:14
[6] 1 Thessalonians 5:17
[7] 2 Chronicles 16:9
