Asking the Lord

Last night we had a revival meetings as we were praying I was asking the Lord what does revival look like this is what I heard “revival is when everyone in the body of Christ does their part as we listen to the Holy Spirit in our lives families homes our fellowships our work our schools”
The Holy Spirit will lead us as he did in the early church much of the early church didn’t have the New Testament to look at all they had was the Holy Spirit to lead them how much more do we need the Holy Spirit to lead us today we have the word of God which helps to guide us and the Holy Spirit to lead us into our Book of acts for today. My prayer is that we would all be filled with the Holy Spirit and every day as we are going into a World of hurting and dying people and we would agree with God Jesus is the answer.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.”
Ephesians 1:3-10 NIV

Prophetic Acts:

Hearing God’s Voice and acting

In the Bible and in the world today we can see God’s supernatural power come to the natural through prophetic acts.  What is a prophetic act?  In the Bible, a prophet was someone who heard from God and spoke to the people what God has said.  A prophetic act is hearing from God and acting on what God has said.  Have you ever heard about Joshua winning the battle of Jericho or Namen washing himself in the Jordan River.  They heard and in faith they acted.  This is how the super comes to the natural, if we would all just do what we hear God speaking to us, we would see his power come.  What do you think Jesus birth was about?  The Holy Spirit spoke to Mary and she agreed with God and the birth of Christ came.  Have you ever thought that God spoke to you and then when you heard it you thought that it doesn’t make any sense, so you didn’t do it.  I can tell you what happened, nothing.  The next time you think God is speaking to you just do it and watch what happens, he might say you need to pray for that person or you need to encourage that person or you need to call someone or you need to write a letter and encourage them, just do it and see what happens.  God wants to use you to reach others so be faithful and let him.  Now let me pray for you, Father I pray that we would not lean on our own understanding but in all our ways we would acknowledge you and give you your rightful place.  Lord we thank you for your presence and for your desire to touch and reach people.  Father now use us in Jesus name.  Amen

Why I started using anointing oil.  The first time I ever used anointing oil was in the nation of Mongolia, a friend of mine and I traveled to Mongolia in 1990, at that time the country was still closed to ministry.  God spoke to us about anointing the government square in the downtown of the capital.  The Lord told us go and anoint all four corners of the government square and then go to the center of the square and make a declaration to invite the Lord into this nation and that one day we would preach the gospel from this spot.  Within six months we were standing in that very spot declaring Jesus Christ is Lord and ministering to the people there.  At the time we went, early 1990, there were only two known believers in the nation and within the next five trips we baptized the first 36 believers and then got to see Christ build his church in that nation.  Now there are between 50,000 and 70,000 believers in the nation and the church is strong.  All Glory to God.
