God, Revival, and You
Rev. Cliff Burdette
As this Millennium is coming to an end, and a New Millennium is to start, God is increasingly stirring up the Body of Christ for revival.Revival has to start in the Body first.
"The Spirit of the LORD
is upon me,
because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent me to heal the broken hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,\and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD."Lk.4:18;19 (Isa.61:1;2)
God will" Console those who Mourn in Zion, To give them Beauty for ashes, The Oil of Joy for mourning, The garment of Praise for the spirit of Heaviness; that they may be called Trees of Righteousness, the planting of the LORD, THAT HE MAY BE GLORIFIED. " Isa 61:3
The church is not preparing
herself for Revival, But God Himself will prepare her.
What started in Pensacola Fla at Brownsville Assembly of God, is what God wants in EVERY church, the world over.
God has to bring us back to our First Love(Rev. 2:4).He is letting us know that Jesus is our Jubilee, The acceptable Year of the LORD, (Lk.4:19) Or if you will, Our perpetual party with divine favor!
Once the Body realizes Jesus is our Jubilee, then God will be able through us, to rebuild the ruins, raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. Isa.61:4
Yes, there will be hard times according to Matt.24:5-12. But according to Ps.34:19, "God will deliver them out of them all".
Once Revival starts in
the church, then it will begin to pour out into the streets.(Acts 2)
Then we will do what Jesus said in Luke 4:18..' Because He has anointed us" Marked us out, smeared us to preach the gospel. But He has also targeted us with the anointing to receive blessings from the Lord..(Lev.25:8-28) Living and working down here as we would in heaven.
God confirming The Word through the accompanying signs, and the Lord working with us. Mark 16:20.
Are you ready?
Raise up the standard, the Word of God, and call upon the Lord, Repent, humble ourselves under God's hand and turn from our sins, and God will heal our land.
We must worship our Lord
and praise Him for His mighty deeds, that the glory may fall.
2Chron 7:1-3 to fulfill this task that's at hand, so that the rapture may come so we can receive our rewards in Heaven.
