At the end of March, I was invited to minister at a three day revival meeting in the city. I taught on “What is Revival?” and then asked the obvious question, “Who wants revival?” Of course, everyone screamed, “Yes!!!” Suddenly, the Holy Spirit gave me the same question to ask another way. I let them know that I was about to ask the same exact question using different words. “Who wants Jesus at the cost of losing everything else? Everything!” The room was totally silent. No one dared to respond. These were business men and women. They understood the question, and needed time to think. The room continued to be silent. But, during a time of intercession from the pulpit, the Holy Spirit moved and wooed their hearts for Christ. Yes!!! They volunteered to have Jesus at the cost of losing everything else, if that was what Jesus required of them. This is what true revival is about. I pray that they will remain true to their confession.
During a time of prophetic ministry after the message, the presence of the Lord came to release people into their destiny. Tiffany was there to help pray and prophesy over people, as well as two other pastors. Many wonderful things occurred, but one individual touched my heart. A young Christian man came up for prayer. He told me that after listening to the message he wanted to live seriously for Jesus. I asked him if he was married because the Holy Spirit told me that he had a woman living with him, but he wasn’t married to her. This was the Lord’s mercy, and He was giving the young man an opportunity to give Him his all. First, the man agreed that he wasn’t married, and then he denied it in front of the church for all to hear. I asked him a few times, but he kept denying it. Several days later he met me in the city. He confessed the truth that he never married the woman he lives with. He wanted to tell me all the sinful things he was doing, but I didn’t want to hear. It wasn’t necessary. Right then, we prayed together. He repented of all the things he was doing, and prayed for Jesus to help him live for Him with all his heart. This is a part of revival. The young man could have stayed in his sins, but instead, he chose to get his heart right with Jesus! Our God is awesome!
