we pray abundant blessing over all of you and your families as we enter into this sacred covenant time of rest. During this day of preparation, this is a rehearsal for the great Sabbath rest the millennial reign.
I am going to address a very strong Delusion among the Christian Community and that has to do with Revival.
As I watch these dime store Preachers selling their books and prophecies spewing out that there is going to be great revival in America….
It is so plain to see how far and how deep the sleep of the North American church really is!!!!
Some of you are thinking that many of these posts coming from me lately are a little bit harsh.
I am merely speaking the truth as the Holy Spirit Ruach HaQuodesh reveals to me.
Ninety-eight percent of Christians have no clue what actual Revival is.
This is because they don’t have a grasp of Godly Sorrow….they are in fact only experiencing worldly sorrow.
The fact that all I see are political and ideological postings on most of their walls here on Facebook, concerning things that are not in their control…. having no clue as to the fact that Hashem is in control of everything and all of this is to serve a purpose.
The watered-down gospel over these last 50 years has come to a culmination of self-centered, self-fulfilling, ….
Fully ” me centered ” Believers
Not “Godly centered ” Followers.
It is time for all of you to wake up!
enjoy your teaching
” Pharoah said to them, ‘Adonai certainly will be with you if I ever let you go with your children! It’s clear that you are up to no good. Nothing doing! Just the men among you may go and worship Adonai.
That’s what you want, isn’t it? ‘
And they were driven out of Pharaohs presence. ”
Sh’mot / Exodus 10:10-11 CJB
After the Plague of locusts, Pharoah tried to bargain with Hashem, allowing only the men to go into the desert to worship; then again after 3 days of Darkness, he agreed to allow the women and children to go as well, but not their flocks and herds which they needed for worship.
Pharoah had reached a point of partially conceding; even admitting to sinning against Adonai, but there was no real change in his heart.
Pharaoh’s response to Hashem was merely a compromise to get himself and Egypt out of the turmoil and devastation they were in.
He did not recognize the G-d of Israel, but in fact, claimed himself to be divine.
Very often the requests that Hashem receives from people are not to align themselves with Him, but mainly for Him to get them out of a fix.
” Abba, if You will only do this for me, I promise…….,” and we negotiate, bargain and compromise, but Hashem will not compromise.
In some cases, it may seem like He compromised…. as in the case of Avraham and Sodom and Gomorrah…… but remember he teaches us through our choices.
Though He understand it is our fears and sorrows that drive us to Him, He is not concerned with our situations alone, but our lives as a whole.
There are those who claim the tragic events of 9/11 brought about a spiritual Revival.
The immediate aftermath was, of course, fear, grief and Sorrow. People were flocking to churches and attendance rose in the United States from 41 to 47%, an increase of 15% in just one month.
By early November, church attendance had dropped back to 42% and sunk even further still after 2 months.
On May 26th 1940, with WWII nine months into siege, King George the VI called for National Day of Prayer.
Entire churches, the length and breadth of Britain were packed. The Nation’s back was against the wall, but when the war was over, church attendance went rapidly into steep decline, just two to three percent of the population. Lol
These are NOT spiritual Revivals!
This is Fear and Sorrow!
True Revival is…. True Repentance.
The Bible distinguishes between godly sorrow and worldly sorrow.
In 2nd Corinthians 7 Verse 10 Rav Saul/ Paul writes; ” Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to Salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. ”
Worldly sorrow is sorrow for one’s self!
Example is, being caught in an overwhelming situation that you do not know what to do.
Godly sorrow is one that brings a change of mind and heart that acknowledges our sin, recognizes our need for G-d, and is expressed in our willingness to submit to Him.
A great example of the difference between the two is looking at the prodigal son and his brother.
Both were handed over to their heart desires and how they wanted to run their life.
One felt ashamed of himself for how he took his father for granted.
The other felt sorry for himself for what he felt he was owed.
Worldly sorrow may be wonderful if it leads to godly sorrow, because in godly sorrow we can be sure Hashem YHVH Himself will step right into the depth of our pain and hardships.
And this my friends, is the true purpose of the great tribulation throughout the entire world, to bring the world to godly sorrow and true repentance, so that none shall perish!
Heavenly Father, I repent of my sin and acknowledge my need of You.
Please step into my life Adonai, ?, and be my strength.
Thank You Adonai Amein
