Recipe For Revival

 

“Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out:” Prov 26:20

 

Romans 12:1-2

 

 With every fire, there is one requirement necessary to keep it burning. All fire must have a source of fuel. Without wood or some sort of consumable fuel source, all fires will even burn themselves out.

If your lacking the fire of God in your life-it is only because you haven't placed any wood on the altar of your life. Stop asking God for fresh fire without putting the wood of your life on the altar. It's insulting to Him. Respect His Glory! The Holy Spirit will not waste His fire for a quick fizzle that you aren't willing to fuel with your life. Your life is the wood!

Paul writes in Romans Chapter 12, that we are to present ourselves as a living sacrifice upon the altar of God. A life that is holy and acceptable before The King of Glory- is a life that is sold-out. It’s this kind of life that the Apostle tells us, “Is our reasonable service”.

In other words…living sanctified and holy. Living sold-out for Jesus, ‘is the least we could do’.

True revival doesn’t start in a series of scheduled church services. True revival starts within our hearts. It’s right there deep in the furnace of our soul that we determine to have the fire of God kindled in every area of our lives.

Today, as you consider this devotion- may you take inventory of your own life. My you make this your prayer:

“Father in the name of Jesus- I surrender every area of my life today to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. I submit my ambitions, my desires, my life, my family, my job, my finances, my thoughts, my words and my deeds before you. May everything in me bow to you Lord Jesus and may my life be holy and acceptable before you this day. May you set me on fire with the Holy Ghost and fill me with your Mighty Spirit. Lord make me a conduit of revival today. Make me a carrier of your glory in Jesus name Amen.”

The Reward of God

 

After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. (‭Genesis‬ ‭15‬:‭1)

If the reward for seeking God was a million dollars and a Bentley-I could venture to guess the world would knock themselves over to get to God. 

However the reward for seeking God is not things or physical blessing. It is not even healing or answer to prayer.  

The reward for seeking after God is Jehovah Himself! 

The LORD declared to Abraham -I AM your exceeding great reward! 

Stop seeking God's hand and start seeking His face.  

He is not just your provider He is your provision! He is not just healer-He is healing! He is not just savior-He is salvation! 

In the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy! 

When you learn to seek Him, you will find that the reward for seeking God is more of God. 

When you get to that place of seeking Him and being satisfied only with God and God alone- It's there that you find yourself abiding in Him and He in you. It's when that happens as Jesus said "When we abide in Him and He in us"-it's then and only then that he promised we could asked anything in His name He would do it. 

Quit seeking an anointing and start seeking the Anointer! Quit seeking miracles and start seeking the miracle worker- Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God- The King of Glory! 

I'm not satisfied with stories and testimonies  of what God has done, I am only satisfied with the God of those testimonies.  

Abraham was blessed because He sought God and God became His reward!

The Malachi Connection

 

 **The Malachi Season**

"So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.” 

“So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in. Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,”

John 20:4-6 

It was here that upon hearing news of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, both Peter and John frantically raced to see for themselves. 

However there is another story within the story. 

It was John the younger of the two that outraced Peter to the tomb. But upon reaching the tomb he became paralyzed-unsure what to do, so he just stood there. 

As Peter arrived to the entrance of the tomb he promptly stepped inside.

You see it was John typifying the younger generation that out ran the older but when he encountered the shock of the empty tomb he quickly froze.  

It was then that Peter with the experience that only age and relationship can foster said "come on-let's go inside..."

You see we are entering a season when there must be a divine partnering of the younger generation with the older generation.  

Any church that consists of only the older generation may have years of experience and knowledge but they will lack the necessary stamina to advance the kingdom.  

Likewise any church that consists of only the younger generation will thrive  on stamina but falter without the depth of solid doctrine, experience and wisdom.  

It is time that the older embrace the younger and the younger embrace the older.  

It's time to understand that these two generations may not look the same, they may not talk the same but they are called to a partnership of battle. 

It's time that the 'old Saints' stop discounting and begin to teach this younger generation how to tarry, how to fast, how to cast out Devils, how to pray through. 

It is time that the older generation stop rejecting this generation of the millennium and understand that they are called to mentor them. 

For if true revival is going to sweep the land, it will require the strength of the youth to carry the flame. And it will necessitate that the two work together. 

We need the wisdom of the older generation to partner with the unbridled strength of this young generation and take enemy held territory! 

It's time like Malachi declares:

“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Malachi 4:6

The Coming Awakening

 

The Coming Awakening

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. (Isaiah 60:2-3 KJV)

While I am grieved at the recent decision to legislate perversion and homosexual marriage, I rest assured that God will have the final word.

The Lord spoke to me not long ago when He declared "I will not be outmatched.."

We are on the brink of a third great awakening in this nation. This coming awakening is going to prophetically shake this nation and it will radically alter the culture of society. 

In order for light to shine the brightest there must be darkness.

The remnant church now has a choice. 

They can wallow in misery and bemoan the recent Supreme Court ruling or they can occupy the Kingdom with power. 

We can lie down or we can rise up infused and infected with Holy Ghost power and impose the Kingdom of Christ. 

Understand that this ruling has set some things in motion spiritually. 

This is how the wheat and the chaff will be identified.

Who will stand boldly and who will cower in a corner. 

Often the greatest moves of God were birthed in the delivery room of persecution. 

While the world your bible declares will be cloaked in darkness and deep darkness the people. The Lord Himself is about to arise upon His church and His glory shall be seem upon thee. 

The tangible manifest presence of God shall soon rest upon the remnant  fire baptized church and the glory of The Lord shall be seen upon his church in power. 

There is a revival coming the likes of which shall make the book of acts look like a Sunday school picnic at the local Presbyterian church. 

There is about to be a move of God that will cause this nation to take notice. Creative miracles and signs and wonders shall follow this church. There will be deliverance at an untold level from demon power. 

The very gates of hell shall not prevail against this outpouring. 

This awakening will completely rattle the darkness and multitudes will surrender in repentance. 

As the prophet Isaiah declares "that the Gentiles shall come to thy light and Kings to the brightness of thy rising." This move of God will usher in even those who previously had no covenant relationship or knowledge of God and it will also rock those in positions of authority. 

Jesus is not coming back for a church with less than what He left.

Remnant Arise

 

But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. (‭Romans‬ ‭11‬:‭4-5‬ KJV)

Everywhere we turn it seems that we are being assailed on all sides. Godlessness, perversion, sickness, death and disease are encroaching from all angles. 

What used to be right is now wrong. What was once considered perverse  is now an alternative lifestyle. Men have become lovers of themselves as they worship at the altar of selfish desire. 

It was just this past Christmas season  that Hasboro reported sales of Ouija boards to be up 300%. Islam is spreading like cancer and secular humanism is rising like flood waters. 

If those things were not enough-like dominos,pulpits all across America seem to be falling for a powerless message of compromise. One after the other, so called mega church Pastors are coming out of the closet and espousing doctrines of Devils in an attempt to manipulate doctor big bucks sitting on the front row. 

As the church goes so goes the nation-As the pulpit goes so goes the pew. 

There however is still hope! 

God is speaking prophetically now- That even though darkness is covering the earth and gross darkness the people, the glory of the Lord is about to be poured out on the earth in a mighty awakening. 

The hot will get hotter and the cold will get colder but it is Harvest time!

It may appear that Jezebel's prophets are numerous in the land-BUT GOD still has a remnant who have not bowed the knee to Baal! 

It's time to cry loud and spare not. It's time to square our shoulders, point our finger under the nose of the devil and declare "Thus saith the Lord" 


Power From Another World

“I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost; Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell.”  William Booth

 

Society stumbles struggling for a solution to ease its pain. With every stick of a drug addicts needle, with every trick turned by a prostitute, with every callous act of anger, with every slap of an abusive husband, with every extra dollar earned to purchase happiness. Society searches for a solution to calm its screaming conscience. Yet a permanent fix evades them.

Meanwhile the Church has been rocked to sleep in the lap of Delilah. For too long they have believed the liberal theologians that claim the God of the Bible has long ago retired himself with the death of the last Apostle. For too long have Christians lived with sickness racking their bodies, and addictions plaguing their lives. Supposedly 'born again' believers are flooding the divorce courts rending families in two.

Where is this God of the Bible you ask? Where have Paul's handkerchiefs and aprons gone.. Where has Peter's shadow gone.. Where have the 3,000 conversions in one day gone.. Where has holiness in the church gone..

In the midst of these dark times I have news for you my friend;  God still has a remnant of people. God has a people who long for a return to Pentecostal Power in the church. They long for the presence of the Holy Spirit in their Church services once again. Their heart cries out for a intimate relationship with their Redeemer.

What the Church needs is not ecumenical reform, its not another program or another seeker friendly function. What the Church needs is an old fashioned down pour of Holy Ghost power. What they need is the power of the Holy Ghost to baptize them in fire.

Jesus declared in  Acts 1:8 "And ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me.."

He said they would receive 'Power' after that the Holy Ghost has come upon them.. I'm not talking about some little just getting by power. I'm not talking about some little goose bump experience. I'm talking about 'POWER' that will wreck your life, wreck your city, wreck your home and wreck your world.

Power over devils.. Power over depravity.. Power over diseases..

I'm talking about a blind eye opening power. Wheel chair emptying power... Miracle working power.  I'm talking about power to live in holiness.. I'm talking about the Holy Ghost of God coming to dwell and take up residence inside you. I'm talking about the same God who walked on the water.. The same Jesus who set the Gadarene free.. The same God who spoke to the waters and said come this far and no farther. The same God who raised Lazarus from the dead. This same God who parted the Red Sea wants to make us His habitation through His Spirit living and dwelling in us.

Jesus said His disciples would receive power to be His witnesses. The Greek word for witnesses in this place of scripture is the word 'Martus'. This is the same word we get the English word martyr from.

Jesus declares the disciples would receive power to be witnesses. This word 'witnesses' means 'One who is a spectator of something' That word means to give evidence of the resurrection of Jesus.

What Jesus told them was that they would receive power to give 'evidence' of His resurrection. I'm talking about resurrection power! That same Spirit that raised up Christ from the dead wants to dwell in you.

God has ordained the fire baptized church of Jesus Christ to be the answer for a destitute world. I have come today to announce to the world that I have the cure to what ails America! Announcing that there is healing for your body... There is deliverance from the snare of drug addiction.. There is a cure for the ravaging disease of AIDS... There is a cure for cancer, And that cure is the power of the Holy Ghost!

God designed His church to be the hospital for a dying world. It's time to stop outsourcing what Jesus commanded us to cast out, what Jesus commanded us to heal.

God longs for His church to cry out for a fresh outpouring of this Holy Ghost power. He longs for a people who will take this power into their workplaces, into the hospitals, into the markets, into the devils back yard and announce with Resurrection Power... JESUS LIVES!!

This experience with God called the Baptism in the Holy Ghost is intended for all believers. God wants to set you on fire for Him..

Right now where ever you are, throw up your hands and declare.."Father..In the Name of Jesus Christ baptize me fresh with the Holy Ghost. Fill me with your mighty Spirit and set me on fire. Saturate me with power to give evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Make me a firebrand of revival!!"

 

 

Becoming a Troublemaker

1 Kings 18:1

“And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the Lord came to Elijah in the third year, saying; Go shew thyself unto Ahab; and  I will send rain upon the earth.”

The scriptures record that Ahab and his wife Jezebel which ruled over Israel in these days did more to provoke the Lord to anger than all the kings previously. What a charge!

The wickedness of Ahab was so great in fact that he allowed his wife to murder and hunt down the prophets of God in a systematic attempt to wipe out the worship of Jehovah throughout the land. This demonically inspired tandem had established and spread the worship of Baal and Ashtoreth across Israel. Sexual perversion and the worship of demon power had replaced the worship of Jehovah.

God had finally had enough and smote the land with a grievous famine and drought where for 3 years it had not rained upon the land. It was then that the word of the Lord came to the prophet Elijah and declared ‘Go show thyself to Ahab; and I will send rain upon the land’ God was finally about to have an old fashioned showdown with the powers of darkness. He said to Elijah that the time to hide from the enemies of God were .  This man of God was commanded to march into the midst of this demon possessed king and announce ‘Thus saith the Lord..’ 

 

“And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?” 1 Kings 18:17

Is this not like the world!  When the fire baptized Holy Ghost filled believer arrives on the scene often the world cries out that we are the ones who are troubling the world. What used to be perversion is now an acceptable lifestyle. What used to be wrong is now right. What used to be done in secret is now brazenly performed as a public spectacle. What used to be called sin is now called personal preference.  The world is busy running out of their closets and the church high tailing it into their closets. 

The time to hide is over! It’s time to be a trouble maker to the works of darkness! 

God is calling the remnant of His church who has not bowed the knee to Baal; the blood washed church of the Lord Jesus Christ who refuses to accept the works of darkness to arise with boldness and Holy Ghost power.

It’s time to confront the forces of wickedness and like Elijah; settle this once and for all. God is about to answer by fire and pour out His glory on the earth.

 The Lord spoke to me some time ago and declared to my spirit that “I will not be outmatched says the Lord”

When it seems that the dark can’t get any darker and satanic power seems to pervade society; God is about arise and His enemies will be scattered!

 This outpouring of the Holy Spirit is going to announce the dominion of the Son of God in one last move of glory before the return of The Lord Jesus Christ!

Signs, wonders, miracles and Holy Ghost power are here! Many will see the power of Jesus Christ and repent.  Just as the fame of Jesus spread through Syria and Galilee and throngs flocked to Him so shall His fame spread throughout the world in this last move of God and many will be saved.  How long will you halt between two opinions?

Faith-The Key to God's Abundance

Heb 11:1,2,6

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report."

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."

 

God will never create a life for you that makes Him unnecessary in your life. Faith exists in the NOW. The scripture here states that faith is the basis of those things hoped for. It is the literal vehicle from which you can access the tangibility of that you have hoped for.

It is important to understand however that many have hope but lack faith. While it is possible to have hope without faith, it is impossible to have faith without hope. Hope without faith is simply presumption. Faith operates on a promise.

There are many who travel to Las Vegas with misplaced hope that they will strike it rich or that they will win big. Hope without true faith is empty. This is why the scripture says that faith is the true substance (tangibility) of that which we hope for.

Faith is simply confidence. It is confidence that God's track record is faithful and that He will perform His word. Once you realize that it is impossible for God to lie you will realize that it is impossible for Him to not perform His word on your behalf. (Heb 6:18), (Num 23:19)

The bible declares that faith is the evidence of things not seen. What does this mean? It means that just because you cant see it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. Rather faith manifests those things into the physical realm that already exist in the world of the spiritual.

Faith is standing on the promises of God and declaring that those things hoped for are manifested because they already exist.  Heb 11:3 "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."

Faith implies that we rely on the track record of God himself. We are confident that no matter what we may see with our natural eyes we now see with the eyes of our spirit. We know with assurance that God will perform His word regardless of what the circumstances of life say.

Faith demands a level of expectancy. The battle of your faith is always won or lost in the arena of your expectancy. What are you expecting God to do for you?

Hebrews 11:6- Demands that without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God.

Why?  Because those who come to Him must do 2 things:

1. You must believe that He is. They must believe that He is God and rules with all power and authority. After all He is the Creator of heaven and earth, He is The Lord Almighty and nothing is impossible for Him. He is the Great- I AM that I AM. The Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End.

2. You must believe and understand that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. There is nothing wrong with expecting God to move on your behalf. He is a rewarder! Many often errantly say "I don't expect anything from God" Well no wonder they don't ever get a miracle! You must expect God to move!

Grab ahold of the word of God and begin to believe for your miracle. Your breakthrough is on the way!

Be healed in your body; Be set free in your mind; The bondage of oppression is broken; Be prosperous and be blessed in the name of Jesus!

The atmosphere of expectancy is the breeding ground for your miracle.

 

 

 

Violence of Action

Matthew 11:12 “The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force”

 

It is time to impose Christ’s Kingdom in the earth, not with sword or military might, but with the irresistible and irrefutable power of the Holy Ghost. It’s time for the church to quit sitting around waiting to be invited!

To do so would be to act as if this world belonged to Satan and his kingdom. It does not! This world belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ! He redeemed all humanity from the curse of the law and translated us from the dominion of Satan to the dominion of the Son of God.  Rev 11:15 “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ!”

God birthed his church to carry His glory. The fire baptized and Holy Ghost filled church of the Lord Jesus Christ is commanded to reach down and rescue a dying and depraved world. It is a church full of remnant  believers who have not bowed the knee to baal, but are full of the life and power of God.

What this nation needs is not political reform, it’s not economic reform, it’s not social reform! What this world needs, what our nation needs, what our city needs, what our church needs, what our homes need, is the power of the Holy Ghost! Power over sickness, power over sin, power over Satan! Power over demons, depravity and disease! 

The power of the resurrected Christ is world shaking! It is what empowered a group of 120 people to turn their known world upside down. It is what caused Peter to preach his first message and over 2000 people repented and bowed the knee the Jesus Christ. It is what anointed Peter’s shadow and Paul’s handkerchiefs. The early church didn’t need charisma magazine or a Hollywood themed mega ministry. They didn’t have playboy’s in the pulpit, they had prophets! They had the Power of the Holy Ghost and the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

They didn’t have cappuccino machines in their churches, they had altars! They didn’t have secular humanism or a self-help gospel; they preached the cross and the delivering power of the blood of Jesus Christ!

We are living in the last days before the return of the Lord and God is not about to be outmatched! There is a revival coming and the likes of which have not been seen on this earth! God is going to pour out His power and glory on the earth one last time. Hospitals will be emptied, wheelchairs emptied, the dead raised and the captives set free!

God is pouring His glory out on His church now! He is not sending revival so that we can have some superficial goose bump experience and leave the house of God the same way we came in.

God wants to change us! He wants to infuse us with His presence!

Because where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. This anointing is life changing! It will not leave you the same way you were when you came in contact with it. This anointing destroys yokes and removes burdens! It breaks the bands of wickedness!

We are commanded to take this anointing and the message of the Anointed One to the world!

1 John 3:8 “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil”  

It is the job of the church to carry the delivering power of Jesus Christ to hurting and helpless humanity. Proclaiming...you don’t have to be under the power of bondage any longer! Jesus saves, Jesus heals, and Jesus delivers. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!

This world does not belong to the devil. Jesus Christ defeated Him with the power of His cross. The devil is a squatter and must be thrown out. It's time to evict the devil from out lives, from our homes, from our churches, from our communities, and from our cities!

Isaiah 60:1,2  “Arise, shine: for thy light is com, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For behold the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people: BUT the LORD shall arise upon thee and His glory shall be seen upon thee”

Are you ready for the tangible and manifest glory of God? It is His desire to pour Himself out upon you and baptize you in power. Let your prayer be "Come Holy Spirit and baptize me fresh in your presence. I need you! More of you Lord Jesus and less of me!"
