Aligning With the Holy Spirit for Revival
The Lord talks to me a good deal about His perspective concerning the Church. He is our Father and a good father will tell His children they can't do something any more that is going to be harmful to them or others. In some cases, a father will have to step in and stop his child/children because of the danger. That is what our Heavenly Father is about to do with the Church and her leaders.
The Holy Spirit proclaims that leaders must hear and obey His voice and follow His leading or they will be judged and removed from their leadership positions. For far too long leaders in the Church have made decisions without His counsel and have spurned His leadership, grieving the Spirit of Christ. This is the sin of presumption, which is nothing short of outright rebellion. The Lord repeated this proclamation over the city of Atlanta three times, demonstrating that He has determined to bring judgment quickly to those that will not repent.
Now is the time to repent for leading Churches without honoring and obeying the voice of the Lord’s Spirit. “Woe to those who stand against Me in the day of My wrath!”, says the Lord.
By the Spirit, I saw the symbol of the Georgia peach over Atlanta. Then the Lord showed me massive, rotten peaches full of decay and death in different areas of the city.
I then saw the Lord kneeling weeping over the city. I asked Him, “Why are you weeping?” He said, “There is no fresh bread for the people in the city.” Fresh bread is revelation from the Holy Spirit. Instead, leaders have relied on what they think they should preach. They preach each other’s sermons and/or preach out of books. They are simply regurgitating what someone else said, rather than waiting upon the Spirit of God to reveal His word to their hearts and thereby provide Fresh Bread and Living Water to the flock of Jesus Christ. Anything else will not satisfy the flock, causing it to become emaciated as they attempt to graze in burned out pasture.
I saw the Lord lifting hands in prayer to the Father. He was praying in tongues. I was then given the interpretation that He was crying out for various areas in the city to be established as places of revival.
The Lord also revealed two scenarios. One where leaders were gathered around a table looking to one another for answers to various issues or problems. The other was where Jesus sat at the head of the table and everyone was looking to Him to speak and provide revelation as to how to go forward. The Lord wants His leaders to wait on Him for revelation as to how to move forward and what action to take.
I then saw a pastor asking someone who was not called by the Spirit to fill a position in the Church. The result is worldliness filling the Church allowing the enemy to fill the void. Only those called to take positions as leaders in the Church are permitted to minister to the Lord and in His House. The Holy Spirit intends to purge His Church by removing the wisdom of the world within His ranks.
The Lord demands that any person who has a position in His House who was invited by a pastor or another leader, rather than called by His Spirit, to resign immediately. If they don’t, the Lord will confront them. The Church of Jesus Christ is to be led by those chosen by the Spirit, not by man out of a desperation to fill a position.
There are some who gather to worship false light. They love their teachers of false light. The Lord intends to close these gatherings. They are not to be called “churches”. He loves people too much to allow them to be deceived by these teachers.
The time has come to be intentional and repent from our sin of operating the House of the Lord Jesus Christ like a corporation in the wisdom of the world. We must have revelation by the Spirit to walk in the days ahead. The Spirit proclaims, “Dangerous and perilous times are ahead! Stay in My Glory!” How do we stay in His Glory? By listening to His voice, receiving His revelation and obeying. This is Biblical faith; this is Biblical Christianity!
During Christmas, many of us enjoy opening gifts that have been given to us. We can't wait to see what someone has given to us. It would be unfortunate for us to stare at the presents under the tree, enjoying the wrapping paper and ribbon and stop there. Those that prepared the gifts for us would be disheartened of we didn't open their presents.
The question the Holy Spirit is asking everyone currently in a position of leadership in His Church is, "Did I place you in the position you hold, or did man place you there? If I did not call you to that position, then you must surrender your role or I will remove you."
I suggest that every leader carefully evaluate what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to His Church. The Lord is inspecting those in leadership positions.
