We have to finish what He started because He has gone to His Father. The Holy Spirit now dwells in us and makes us alive unto Christ Jesus so we can do so. We need to assume our rightful position of authority and do what He did!
We are to be like the tribe of Issachar - understanding the times and knowing what to do in response. The global pandemic can be the Church's doom or the Church's greatest opportunity. We get to decide which!
“God claims the world as his.
Everything and everyone belongs to him!
He’s the one who pushed back oceans
to let the dry ground appear,
planting firm foundations for the earth.
Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord?
And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place?
Those who are clean—whose works and ways are pure,
whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth,
those who never deceive, whose words are sure.
They will receive the Lord’s blessing
and righteousness given by the Savior-God.
They will stand before God,
for they seek the pleasure of God’s face, the God of Jacob.
So wake up, you living gateways!
Lift up your heads, you ageless doors of destiny!
Welcome the King of Glory,
for he is about to come through you.
You ask, 'Who is this Glory-King?'
The Lord, armed and ready for battle,
the Mighty One, invincible in every way!
So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice!
Fling wide, you ageless doors of destiny!
Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.
You ask, 'Who is this King of Glory?'
He is the Lord of Victory, armed and ready for battle,
the Mighty One, the invincible commander of heaven’s hosts!
Yes, he is the King of Glory!”(TPT).
"Philip spoke up, 'Lord, show us the Father, and that will be all that we need!'
"Jesus replied, 'Philip, I’ve been with you all this time and you still don’t know who I am? How could you ask me to show you the Father, for anyone who has looked at me has seen the Father. Don’t you believe that the Father is living in me and that I am living in the Father? Even my words are not my own but come from my Father, for he lives in me and performs his miracles of power through me. Believe that I live as one with my Father and that my Father lives as one with me—or at least, believe because of the mighty miracles I have done.
“'I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!'” (TPT).
A revival can happen in an individual heart, family, church, city. The difference between revival and awakening is that an awakening falls at least on an entire community and every person instantly receives a God consciousness. We’ve seen both in America.
The Church must finish what Jesus started, because He has gone to His Father. The Holy Spirit now dwells in us and makes us alive unto Christ Jesus so we can do so. We need to assume our rightful position of authority and do what He did!
Could it be that what we are experiencing with the Wuhan virus is prelude to a great awakening in this nation? It could, if the Church is faithful in these ways:
Rediscover the Bible for yourself
Revive Bible doctrine
Reintroduce Holy Ghost conviction and repentance
Remove your idols
Restrain the false doctrine
Restore God in government
Return God to our educational system
Reassemble the people of God
Reactivate biblical praise and worship
Release financial abundance
These conditions are necessary for revival and awakening in America:
The High Priest must be in His office.
A true apostolic and prophetic voice must proclaim the Word of the Lord.
Political leaders must embrace the morality of the King - they must do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
Pray over these things, and watch God move in your life!
