God‘s Message to You: “You Are the Revival”
The men of God are coming to West Angeles, and they have a mighty word from God for you! God wants you to know that He wants to take you places – higher than you’ve ever been before – but first, you must recommit to His will. Below, Bishop Dwight Pate prophesies the vision of a new day for the church: a new day which starts with you.
GOD IN YOU
In this hour, there’s a stirring…because “religion” is not working. But what does revival look like? It looks just like you.
There’s a price to be paid to let God take you over. Your patience is gone: now God’s going to show up; He is about to hijack your desires. God gave you a prayer language to build up your inner man. God will create an environment where He, with your permission, takes over your fleshly desires to mature you; to choose His desire, Amen, for your life.
Sovereign grace is when God releases imagination onto you; visions and dreams are the languages of the Holy Spirit. God’s children are the only ones with the right to predict the future. The gifts are real. The manifestation of the Holy Spirit is real. And the same Holy Spirit that was in Peter and Paul is in you.
GOD IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Everything God does has a purpose. Even Jesus learned obedience by the things He suffered. God did not allow slavery to happen in order to create slave camps in the south or the factories in the north. He has used all the things that have happened in inner-city America: all of the Jim Crow Laws, all of the foolishness, all of the lies and promises of the political machine; disappointment after disappointment…
“50 years ago, the voting rights act; the civil rights bill. 50 years later, inner-city America is in worse shape now than any slave master has ever done to us. And we did it to ourselves.
But God is saying, ‘I let these things happen because there’s no victory in the flesh.” And He is about to hijack your desires for His purpose because even the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s plans!
GOD IN YOUR CHURCH
When are we going to learn that our answer is not in a worn-out political machine? The answer is where Bishop Mason and Bishop Seymour found it: in the church.
Study church history. Every time there was a move of God where God took over cities and over nations, men had nothing to do with it. America’s going to have one last move: and the church is about to rise up above all these worn-out political machines. Your church is going to take her rightful place: bigger than a Democrat bigger than a Republican, bigger than an independent.
Heavenly Father, loose the Spirit of your wonders upon this church! Lord, give us the revival of Azuza! Give us the revival of William J. Seymour! Give us the revival of C.H. Mason! From NY to San Diego, walk up and down the nations of the earth. I bind sin! I bind death! I bind wickedness! I rebuke doubt, fear, and unbelief and I command a hunger for God’s will deep into the soul of your people. Lord, release joy upon your church! Bless us today with a new spirit of liberty!
