Today I have been watching last year’s commissioning service of our June Gathering” Arizona Prophetic Remnant Arise!” It is always good to review, as we move forward, the mandate of the Lord for the past year. If you were with us, you will remember the prevailing message for us was the one of walking in true humility before the Lord and His people. We had a specially made mantle created from burlap–the Humility Mantle. Many of you went through the mantling tunnel with heart’s burning for revival and the move of God to be manifested through you by humble obedience to His will and way for your lives. This humility carries great authority!
Just this week, we have been hearing the Lord remind us to prepare for the great wave of His Glory that is coming, the Wave of Compassion. From His Wave of Compassion will flow the signs, wonders, and miracles that we have all longed to see break forth. He is reminding us to yield to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He is speaking to us over things in our lives that need to change–areas where we need to repent, and places where He desires to conform us more and more into the image of Jesus. We are being challenged to walk in the Spirit and grow the fruit of the Spirit in our lives so that we can be known as His. Particularly, we feel that He highlighted the fruit of gentleness to us. The Psalmist declared: “Your gentleness makes me great.” (Psalm 18:35) and Peter declared, “But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense to everyone who asks to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” (I Pet. 3:15)
The meaning of gentleness from the Greek is “mildness of disposition, meekness, and humility”. It is the opposite of self-assertiveness and self-interest. It stems from ones trust in God’s goodness and control over every situation. It means to wholly rely on God rather than our own strength to defend ourselves against injustice.
Last Sunday at our church, the Lord moved in such a mighty way! He had awakened me that morning with 2 questions that He has asked me before. This meant to me that He must have felt it was time to remind me, because I know He already knows the answers to those questions. He asked me, “Do you have time for revival?”, and “Are you willing to let Me rearrange Your schedule?” I melted before Him. I said, “Lord, I don’t feel like a revivalist!” And He so gently replied, “You are one, so act like one.” Then I said, “What does a revivalist look like?” This was what He said:
A revivalist is someone who is consumed, who has gone up in smoke! They live under My cloud of glory. They are continually traveling with Me.
They are unoffendable because they know beyond a doubt that they are Mine and that they have a mandate.
They are so full of My Word that they become My Word walking for all men to read and see.
They have no personal opinion, ambition or agenda.
They live and move and have their being in pleasing Me and pursuing My heart’s desire.
They are not a perfect people, but a passionate people who are growing up to be like their Beloved.
They are a holy, uncompromised people who are willing to be inconvenienced by My presence.
They bless and they do not curse. They have no time to be critical or judgmental because they have the eyes of Heaven.
Basically, Honey Bunch, they are ruined and undone. If you will stay in this state of undoneness, I will put you back together again!
Women of Revival
As you look at the Lord’s description of a revivalist, we pray you are stirred in your heart like I was to answer the Lord’s questions with a resounding “YES!” The Lord is calling all of us to usher in the greatest move of God in history! We may have to change up our priorities and rearrange our lives, but His gentleness will make us great! He loves to use the unlikely and the undone ones to demonstrate His power!
We are excited about our 2 upcoming revival gatherings, “Women of Revival: Stake Your Claim” with Pastor Brenda Kilpatrick and LaNora Morin and “Arizona Revival Remnant: Avalanche of Glory” with Apostle Bob Beckett, Apostle Chuck Pierce, Pastor John Kilpatrick, and Pastor Sergio Scataglini. Would you help us out in our planning by registering now? We do have limited space.
We are looking forward to hosting you–His revivalists! May this be a time that you enter into your true identity and may every decree that has been set against you be overturned! May your supply for this next season be released in full! May your joy overflow! As you celebrate His resurrection, may you come alive!
May the fire on the altar never go out!
For His Glory, always,
Jody and LaNora
