We have entered into a season that is propelling The Church forward into the deep.
The religious demonic strange fire that once occupied many religious Churches and kept The Church in cycles of defeat will literally become the stepping stones of overcoming deliverance with prevailing prayer, and we shall see it happen with our own eyes.
The LORD is coming back soon for a Church without spot, wrinkle, or any blemish and there is A Corporate Move of God worldwide that is quickening many.
Many prayers continue to echo in heaven that have not been forgotten!
You Have Not Been Forgotten!
There are many outside the gate, who have thought they have walked away from God because they left religious intuitions.
These children had an authentic conversion experience — but thought because they left the denomination or organization through hurt, disillusionment or were rejected — thought that God must have rejected them.
The LORD is actively pursuing the backslider and wooing them again with the same loving kindness they experienced in the beginning!
This is truly a season of new beginnings with many.
The Chief Shepherd of our souls seeks and saves those who are lost! Out of these souls who were considered outcast, rejects, and non-conformist due to false prophets, religious error, doctrines of devils, and religious rejection were responsible for the deep wounds on their souls.
These precious ones were driven to self-medicate their wounds with the cares of this life, the things of this world and, the pleasure of sin for a season.
Also due to rejection, they assumed there was no hope and they gave in and settled into whatever form of self-medicating bondage they chose and just gave in.
The place inside the wounded soul irrationally, has been squeezed out of all of the pleasures of sin for a season and what’s left has been exhausted of all the content within.
They are no longer fulfilled by their choices. They live life in limbo with no direction and end up hitting dead ends wherever they go.
All that is left is total abandonment to the misery of choices made long ago. They go from one thing to another seeking fulfillment in that emptiness that only God can fill.
However, in this season of propelling us forward, first God is sending a Divine Wake Up Call! God is sending Revival!
Revival is not some three or five-day meetings! Revival is a divine sound or alarm from Heaven to wake up The Church!
Did you know that in the parable of the wise and foolish virgins that they ALL fell asleep? And at the midnight cry the announcement came that our bridegroom is coming. (Matthew 25:5)
Well Church, we are at that time and it is time to get ready and remain ready!
Revival is not good inspired meetings that begin with a boom and end up having empty results with no lasting change.
True Revival brings lasting change! Judgment must first begin with The House of God!
God is sounding His Trumpet to wake up The Church! We are The Temple of God and we must hear the sound to awaken and be ready for The Holy Spirit to convict us, judge ourselves, and repent of everything that has separated us from His Presence! We must return to our first love!
The Prophetic Anointing in particular, is crying out all over the world to wake up and repent and get right with God!
God sends conviction of sin that brings true Repentance, that causes a radical change in our direction and alignment with God’s Will — which is His Word!
We must wake up and repent so that truly times of refreshing come from the presence of The LORD.
“So repent [change your inner self — your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God — seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of The LORD [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day.” Acts 3:19 AMP.
In the story of The Prodigal Son, he came to the end of his circumstances. He was as low as low could go. He used up all his inheritance and ended up dwelling with pigs.
Then suddenly he experienced an epiphany! He came to the end of himself and woke up (revived) and suddenly concluded that he remembered his father house! In his mind he thought he could return to be a servant in his father’s house. The son did not realize who he was!
This was a broken, humiliated, son; a man who did not know who he was! But he had a limited understanding of who he was in his father’s house and he decided to make the journey as he exhausted all his resources living a sin-filled life.
And from afar off, his father saw him and ran to meet him and embraced him and kissed him, even though he smelled of swine.
The son, in his brokenness, repented and told the father that he wasn’t worthy to be called his son. And the most beautiful thing happened that even in his condition, the smell and sin, the father never accused him!
The father told the servants to quickly bring him the best robe with sandals for his feet. The father covered his outward condition, (he clothed him with righteousness) and then gave him a signet ring of authority over his whole house!
The beauty of the father reveals to us God’s Lovingkindness, Mercy, and Restoration by clothing him fully signifying that the son is enveloped by The Father and giving him all Authority in Heaven and on earth.
And it didn’t stop there. The father commanded a celebration of the return of his son as He celebrates and welcomes us back into the fold!
“I will greatly rejoice in The LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10 KJV.
Revival is here and it is a divine set up strategy by God!
There will be many who shall return to the Author and Finisher of our faith! He is shaking us while we are in the fire of our own choices — and God is getting us to the root of the matter, so that what was our history, is forever changed.
There are many family spearheads who have been chosen to break through the generational curses, and commanding the devil, “The buck stops here! You will not go any further in our bloodlines in Jesus’ Name!’
This herald of the trumpet to wake up and revive is truly upon us, beloved of God, and it will cause many back-sliders to come home to The Father, Who has patiently waited for such a time as this!
There is nothing else to turn back to! Keep your hand on the plow and remain ready, for we look not on what was, we look forward to what is!
“But when he [finally] came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired men have more than enough food, while I am dying here of hunger! I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; [just] treat me like one of your hired men.” So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his servants, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe [for the guest of honor] and put it on him; and give him a ring for his hand, and sandals for his feet. And bring the fattened calf and slaughter it, and let us [invite everyone and] feast and celebrate; for this son of mine was [as good as] dead and is alive again; he was lost and has been found.’ So, they began to celebrate.” Luke 15:17-24 AMP.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
