What Will Revival Look Like?

I just thought I would write down some of my thoughts here. Because we have just stepped into a new time threshold and now it’s God’s time to move I was thinking about what this next move of God will look like:

Something that kept coming into my mind was that God is going to use those that society says will never be used and are useless. When I heard this I was instantly excited in my spirit because I know so many people who have been told by society that they are not worth a penny. I know God holds their worth and they are more precious than diamonds. I was trying to picture it in my mind. I saw people from all tribes and tongues. I saw worship in church in many different languages. I was reminded of a time at New Wine when some Masai warriors worshipped on the stage. Oh my goodness one of the best moments in my life. Another moment was when I was at International Gateway camp in Hong Kong and each nation did a song and dance on stage on a different night. There was wonderful worship, complete strangers holding hands and singing. Most of all was the forgiveness. At one point a Japanese girl got onto the stage followed by her group with tears streaming down their cheeks and begged for forgiveness from the Chinese. A couple of Chinese jumped up and ran to the stage followed by about 50 (all of them there) and they gave the Japanese group hugs which lasted a very long time. It was an emotional but joyful time. I will always remember that. That I think is how church will be. Nobody will be in need and people will never feel alone. People who have been abused, even those who have attacked others (but repented), many former Muslims (especially those who hated Christians most-I am reminded of Paul here), and those who currently belong to some certain politically correct movements who hate, hate, hate and who at this current time you would look at them and think “how on earth will God use someone like that to bring his kingdom on Earth?” will all not only be a part of this next movement but they will be leaders and many yes will be persecuted but God’s power will be shown through them because, “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little”. (Luke 7:47 KJV). I am so excited. So don’t listen to the gloom and doom because it’s time for God to have some room!!:)

 

God bless you all and may the Host of Heaven and the Holy Spirit be with you 🙂

Worship as a lifestyle

 

Jeremiah 35 was given to me. This is a chapter I had never read before but I believe is relevant to us today. It tells the story of how Jeremiah was instructed to go and speak to the Racabites.

They were a group of very simple living people who lived above the sinful lifestyle of the cities. They were nomads. They did not even settle down to one spot when they were in the city. They were constantly on the move. They were people of very high morals.  Their lifestyle depicts the fact that all believers are strangers in this land. This is not our home. We are headed for our home in heaven. They were not materialistic people and we can learn from this. Their religious convictions were similar to the Israelites but the difference was that they lived more holy lives than the Israelites.

These Rechabites were rewarded for living a holy life by obeying the commandments of Jonadab. God never overlooks even one person who is living upright before Him. They had made a stand, and had not backslidden . God respects this type of loyalty and faithfulness. I believe this applies to us. We are not called to be just ‘christians’. With so many people using the word and with so many different meanings perhaps it has little relevance to us now. People often think of the Israelites but not much mention is given to the Racabites who lived a very holy life, a life set apart and although they lived among and were related to the Israelites God used them to show the Israelites that if you want to follow God you have to set yourself apart. There have been many movements that we can learn from like this and again in the 16th century the movement of the ‘Quakers’ was founded , a movement that pushed away from ‘mainstream Christianity’ (whatever that means) to search for truth and the roots of faith and God’s face.

I wanted to share this with you that when you set yourself apart God can do mighty things so don’t go with the flow and follow the crowd. God bless you.
