There is so much going on around us in our news, and world. Chaos, fear, and uncertainty are at the forefront of our news stations. To some or even many all hopes of a shift in this generation looks hopeless. The statistics and just the simple view of our nation and world look as if we are in trouble. But I believe with every ounce of my being that all hope is not lost. I believe that in the midst of great darkness God’s Glory is about to be poured out and is being poured out on this generation. Revival is coming.
Revival: Hope In Jesus
I want to encourage you that in the midst of all that’s going on around us. That God is ready to partner with his Church to release his Glory in these last days. We are given a promise in several places of scripture that we would see an outpouring of the spirit and glory in the last days.
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
(Joel 2:28 NIV)
Believe His Word
This promise was not just for the church of Acts. But is a prophecy to the last day church as well. Each generation must believe God for His fire and Glory to shake their generation. Each generation must through much prayer and fasting birth a move of the spirit in their cities and regions. We know that this happened in the book of Acts as 120 prayed and believed for the promise of the father in the upper room. I believe with everything in my spirit that the only hope for our nation is the Glory of God covering a generation. Like it did in the Healing Revival, The Latter Reign movement as well as the Jesus People movement.
I firmly believe that the presence of God returning to the Church in an unusual way is the key to shifting the destiny of a generation. One that is walking away from God and leaving the Church as well as a nation. But the question is what can the remnant do to position ourselves in the center of God’s will? I believe the secret is of course praying and fasting for revival in our cities like never before.
“Announce a time of fasting; call the people together for a solemn meeting. Bring the leaders and all the people of the land into the Temple of the LORD your God, and cry out to him there.”
(Joel 1:14 NLT)
A Perfect Time For Revival
Coming off this lockdown, I believe American is ripe for an encounter with God’s Glory. But we must get hungry again despite what we see in our nation. However, we must not allow the racial division, the political division, and everything else going on in our lives and nation to deter us because the harvest must be brought in.
This generation needs to encounter the God of the generations of old. They need to encounter the God of miracles, signs, and wonders as did our forefathers. I am believing that in this hour of great crisis that fasting, prayer and the demonstration of God’s power is the remedy.
This verse above in Joel gives us the prophetic prescription to see such outpouring and we must not stop until we see God shake this generation. Finally, I have made this the core of my ministry assignment.
Turning Back To God
The Joel 2 Generation picked up the mandate to believe for the Glory of God to invade this generation. After just leaving a Lou Engle Event in Kentucky a man that is a father in the faith to me. I want to invite a new generation to believe with me for a revival of God’s Glory in our generation. Let’s pick up the mantle and see a generation turn back to God.
“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”
In conclusion, this is the promise of God for the end-time Church: that He covers the earth in with His Glory. All we must do is contend for these beautiful promises in prayer and fasting. Let’s believe that the answer is not in the White House but the answer is the revived Church house. Yes, I pray and fast for righteousness in every aspect of government. But my hope is in the God that answers by fire.
