I hear a lot of talk and discussion and prophecy about revival. I have seen two revivals in my life.
I grew up in a church that had he presence of the voice of healing revival because my grand parents were of that generation. I remember when they attended one of my meetings in the 90s and they told me that it was like the early years accept the crowds were bigger.
I do believe that there is a revival happening right now. 5 years ago when God asked me to relaunch the church with a new name, he obviously knew that I was going to get sick at the same time. When you look at my home page and read my statement, that's what revival is looking like.
This revival doesn't have the face of great preachers and famous ministers. When I honestly look at the church today it appears more splintered than anything else. The mega church is declining from its tremendous run up. Your more traditional Church is struggling for membership and suffering from attrition. To hope for something to change we have to look at what we believe God would be interested in.
Many of us have been led to believe that God will bless us because we attach his name to something. Or because we have a motive to please him. That only goes so far. I cant make God bless me or my church or my ministry. I have gone to my root beliefs in my approach to this current revival. The result is that I am no so much interested in a mass move as I am in the personal relationship we have through The Holy Spirit.
Jesus said these signs shall follow those that believe. Heal the sick, cast out devils, raise the dead, Preach the Gospel. Basically Miracles signs and wonders. We have always had our heroes of the Faith. Men and Women who became hungry for more and gained an anointing above their peers. In the past century we have put these people on stages and watched them perform. Until many of them became casualties of their character flaws. The gift of God can be greater than the character of the person gifted.
Following the logic of what Jesus said about the believer, I believe the revival is the spirit filled Christian doing the book of Acts on a daily basis.
Too many of us believe that revival comes through the organized church, and the authority structure he has put in place. That is only true if the fellowship is led by the Holy Spirit.
Many church's are going to close and church fellowships lose following, waiting for some magic moment. We really are arrogant enough to believe God will eventually grace us with increase because our beliefs are right.
Right now this revival is beginning all across America. Christians activated by their hunger for more of God and at times frustrated by empty promises from the church, are laying hands on the sick and they are getting well. They are prophesying and allowing the gifts of the Holy Spirit to flow through them. On their jobs, in their homes, among their friends.
All of us that God has placed in authority have an opportunity to step back from doing all the ministry and do what we were always suppose to do. Mature the saint for the work of the ministry.
We cannot be jealous, or threatened. We must encourage and train as much as possible the new revivalist. Annette and I want to help all of those who will allow us, to step into this fresh flow.
The no name revival.
