Move of God – Revival

I realize that our reflections on the Book of Proverbs have been put on hold for a bit, but I’m going to continue to put it on hold at least through one more posting. Then I’m going to leave these three postings on the blog’s main page for some time before I pick back up with Proverbs, because I believe God is moving, that these last three postings tied together, and are crucial to a work that God is doing.

Revival – The Move of God

Let me state first off that I understand what we define as a generation of people, so let’s not get too technical about that. I also know how Jesus referred to a generation or generations of people, and it was different than the box that we have put generations in today. For the purpose of this posting when I refer to a generation I will be referring to a group of people who were able to be born and reach the age of approximately 21 to 25 years old during a specific time in history.

We are beginning in this country, America, to see a revival that though instigated by God began to really spark first among young people. It is beginning to spread and will addresses the challenges that the generations below me face. Now understand, we all as Christian people face these challenges in our society today, but there is always kind of a core age group of people that begin to be sparked by God and it is those people and their leaders, which are usually older than them, who seem to be at the center of the birthing of another Revival or Move of God.

This is not an exact science, but it is a relatively consistent pattern. We see some degree of a Move of God approximately every 20 to 25 years. That is long enough for someone to be born and to grow to adulthood. I personally believe that is very spiritually significant and very much a part of God’s plan.

Side note:

I use a capital M and a capital R when I refer to a Move of God or Revival in a specific way. The reason that I do that is because a true Move of God, a true Revival of God’s people, is a manifestation of Jesus himself in the form of The Holy Spirit, one part of The Trinity. So that Move, that Revival, is a manifestation of God himself among us. Now people try to make that very weird but it’s not, it’s not weird at all, for when the Gifts and The Things of God are manifest it is him showing His Presence.

The last major Move of God was taking place in 1998, exactly 25 years ago. Now it extended in time as Moves and Revivals do, but it’s core, when the leaders, of which I was one, across the country, when those leaders had really received the Message from God regarding what he was doing during that Move and beyond. I state “and beyond” because I believe the Moves of God do connect, and at times overlap, for God’s very specific purposes and I believe this is one of those times. The reason being, when God really began to speak in 1998 to multiple leaders across the country, who did not know each other but later would come to know each other, he spoke what he wanted the church congregations, that he would ultimately end up blessing, to be and how they were to function during and at times extending past the lifetime of the people that he spoke this to, again of which I am one, and I am still very much alive obviously.

I believe this Move of God and the last Move of God are very much connected, as God is using the current generation to bring to completion (in many different ways) what God used us in 1998 to begin, promote, and strive for in the Glory of the advancement of the Kingdom of God. Get ready people because this generation, just like in our generation, will not qualify themselves for religiosity, THE POWER OF GOD ON THEM WILL BE THEIR QUALIFICATIONS.

During the past 25 years as I have watched various congregations receive that Message about how God wanted congregations to function, the things he wanted from the Body of Christ, I have seen them be blessed in abundance, grow and flourish incredibly. I have also seen those that refuse or refused to receive that Message, those congregations have dwindled and dwindled, they constantly struggle for money, they struggle to make a difference in a society and among the Body of Christ but they really don’t make a significant difference, and that is because they want to do things their way and they don’t want to listen to the Message that came so many years ago from God. Just as God stated, and the religious leaders out there refused to accept, God has broken the back of denominationalism and he continues to break it, ultimately it will be destroyed for there is only One Church, One Body of Christ. We see the manifestation of that breaking in this generation where God is moving and revival is beginning to take place, they want no part of denominationalism, they want to go to non-denominational congregations. You find so many denominations, which I will not name, rebranding themselves, taking out of the names of their churches or congregations that identifying name that connects them to a particular denomination. They are trying to appear non-denominational, but they are actually still associated with the specific denomination. Trying to hide your connection to denominationalism is not severing yourself from denominationalism, so these types of congregations continue to struggle.

There were so many things that God spoke about in the late 1990’s regarding where he wanted the Body of Christ to go that there is no way to go into them all in this posting, however, UNITY among the Body of Christ was absolutely crucial to the Christian community’s ability to continue to have an impact on their society. We have not yet reached that type of Unity and our influence in our society over the last 25 years has dropped to where it is almost nothing. I think that speaks for itself.

President Jimmy Carter

Let us keep President Jimmy Carter in our prayers as he prepares for his journey to be with his Savior, Jesus. There are some people, some men in the world, who are just so good at the center of who they are they are actually too good to lead our country, to do the things necessary. There are so many things that President Carter did for this country that people have no idea about, because while all of the critics were talking negatively about him, he and those people around him kept quiet about all of his accomplishments. He kept quiet as he negotiated the release of the Iran hostages that would take place under Reagan’s reign, but was actually Jimmy Carter’s doing. Part of the conditions for their release was that it could not take place until after President Reagan had taken office, yet, in his last few days of his presidency this is what President Carter was insuring would take place. How many of you actually knew that – Carter did the work, Regan was left with the credit.

President Carter taught Sunday School at his home Church for decades and decades and decades. I was blessed to get to attend his Sunday School Class one Sunday with my husband. I was doubly blessed to be able to speak with him and talk with him and his wife afterward. President Carter was at that time, and I assume still is, a huge fan of women in the ministry. I was a woman in the ministry, and here was a man in excess of a half century older than I, able to understand what God had called me to do when I was still struggling with men of my own age that found it very difficult to accept. That is what wisdom, godly wisdom, looks like.

I pray that President Carter’s transition to his new home with Jesus is a peaceful one. I say transition because Paul indicated that Christians don’t actually die, we pass from this life to the next life, and then our bodies cease to work. That is very different in my view from dying. When President Carter passes from this life to the next, he will be more alive than he has ever been in the 98, I believe it is 98, years that he has been here on this Earth.

God bless you, President Carter. Thank you for everything that you did for this country and for people around the world.

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers, and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
