I have been hearing many people talk lately about how excited they are about revivals and calling themselves revivalists. What is revival? The dictionary describes it as an improvement in the condition or strength of something, an instance of something becoming popular, active or important again, an awakening in a church or community of interest in and care for matters relating to personal religion. The truth is that revival is impossible until people make a conscious effort to get delivered from the demons tormenting their minds and thoughts through forgiving people who have hurt them in their past and repenting for their pride and sin.
I have heard from thousands of people since 2015 when I began my ministry how they felt so much more godly, peaceful, more joyful, humble and sexually pure and clean after they had gone through inner healing and deliverance. They no longer heard the tens of thousands of demonic thoughts that they used to have and thus their behavior changed to aligning more with the fruit of the spirit. They got along with their spouse and children. They often received healing in their bodies. They heard from the Lord in their minds instead of demons. They had transformed from their old person attending church struggling with behaviors of the flesh to now living a life aligned with Christ on a daily basis. It’s really hard to get revived and excited when you are living a fake Christian life in the flesh yet easy to be revived when you have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness and self-control.
Galatians 5:16-26 NKJV
Walking in the Spirit
16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
I am seeing the demand for deliverance explode before my eyes. We are seeing more people who have been satanic ritually abused come to our BREAKTHROUGH events and getting deliverance, freedom and healing of their emotions and pains in their bodies as they said that their pastors and churches are not equipped to know what to do to help them.
We have to get many pastors, leaders, teachers, prophets, apostles, evangelists, intercessors and their spouses in the church delivered from their soul wounds and demons in order to prepare the way for revivals to actually occur. Since the church is sick and impure and does not know how to get people pure and spotless – it is imperative that deliverance occur to help people become like Christ and then truly help others who are lost to come to Christ and then get delivered from their demons.
The church has been preaching that just by asking Jesus into our hearts that we are saved and good to go and you can’t be touched by demons. Unfortunately there are way more people who attend church who are listening to demons then are delivered and freed. For the body of Christ to become the bride of Christ (the true Remnant) they need to forgive everyone who ever hurt them, repent for their pride and sin and then walk it out in the freedom of Christ.
Matthew 7:15-23 NKJV
You Will Know Them by Their Fruits
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
When people get delivered they are so excited and personally revived that they cannot hold it in anymore. They want to tell everyone the good news of what Jesus did for them. So many have told me after they have been delivered that now they know what it feels like to be a real Christian and not a fake. They were told they were saved before but looking back they knew that they were not real and that their fruit stunk and now they feel truly saved as their fruit lines up with the Spirit and not their flesh.
Jeremiah 17:10 NKJV
10 I, the Lord, search the heart,
I test the mind,
Even to give every man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his doings.
If you don’t have good fruit you will not be able to see revival. So forgive everyone who has ever hurt you (hurting people hurt people) and repent for your own pride and sin. Then you will be personally revived and can start a church and community revival!
The entire time people are crying out for God to send a revival He is waiting for us to consecrate ourselves to His standards through forgiveness, humility and repentance of sin. When this happens then we will see huge revivals as our hearts will be aligned with His and the same sin that grieves Him will grieve us.
