26+40 Days, What is Revival?

26 days till the X roads.

Lets start out with what revival is not.  It is not some sign some guy puts up in front of his building for two weeks.  It is not something believers do to feel good about themselves because they just heard a TED talk like speaker.  If you want to know what the revival we are being called to looks like, open up your Bible to Acts Chapter 2.  You really need to read all of it because its all important.  For the sake of brevity on this post a small part will be inserted here:

Acts 2

17‘In the last days,’ God says,

‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy.

Your young men will see visions,

and your old men will dream dreams.

18In those days I will pour out my Spirit

even on my servants—men and women alike—

and they will prophesy.

19And I will cause wonders in the heavens above

and signs on the earth below—

blood and fire and clouds of smoke.

20The sun will become dark,

and the moon will turn blood red

before that great and glorious day of the LORD arrives.

21But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD

will be saved.’c

There is alot more so please go to Acts 2 and read it all.

The Lord God is speaking clearly about this and He is accompanying the message with power.

1 Cor 4:20

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.

The "X" over America is more than just an X.  It is multifaceted and multilayered like many things the Lord God does.  It is an X of finality over some things (like the business as usual apathy and complacecy of the past).  But it is also a crossroads of change.  Change is coming, whether we like it or not, want it or not-its coming.  We who believe will be instrumental in that change-one way or the other.  We have been warned, and we get to choose.  Enough is enough.  The Lord God has waited patiently for untold years while people played religious games in their buildings while simultaneously giving Him the cold shoulder.  The net result is the darkness we see all around us.  

Darkness can only exist where there is an absence of light.  Now that we have seen how bad things can get (like food prices for example) with satanic psychopaths running our country, one would hope that at a minimum believers would snap out of their slumber.  There is something we can do about the narcissistic psychopaths and that is threefold:  repent, revive, stand in righteousness (right standing with God-ongoing).  That recipe is not a new one, it is ancient but it is time to apply it again.

The Spirit of the Lord God is speaking as clearly as this servant has ever heard Him right now about these things.  This is no joke and no false alarm-its all 100% seriously real.  The solution going forward is not showing up to some building on some day of the week to "do our duty."  The solution starts with us down on our knees, with hearts and hands lifted up to the Almighty in repentance, revival and righteousness.  This is about a 1:1 relationship between you and Him.  Once we get that right, we can start fixing our gatherings together but we must put first things first.

Today is the day of salvation and the day of the Lord's favor:

2 Cor 6:2

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

Let us commit to do what we need to do.  Glory to God

The Lord our God is exceedingly great.

Glory to God

grace and peace
