Facebook :Two studies on Revival by Chris Welch
Revival: Your choice Church
You can covenant together , or one individual over a longer period....and literally invoke the rain of God over a locality.
This was practiced in England and the UK in roughly 50 year intervals from the 1600s. !850 was quite a big outbreak, then groups met together in Wales over 50 years and this time was a huge national one, the last big one in the UK.
Elijah also believed for a "big event" and after 3 years got it. There was drought,and then at his prayer surrounded by priests of Baal, the fire of God fell followed by rain.
"The Big Event" way of working is mirrored by Jesus and the first big catch of fish.
Like Wales....like Elijah freaking out....like the disciples with the breaking nets, no coordination or unity, everyone after their own agenda....the nets broke and fish escaped.
Now in Wales, the attitude and hardness of heart after the revival in the 20th Century led to a state worse than the first.
SO CHURCH....YOU CHOOSE!
You want the blistering revival.....OK you shall have it.
The earth was given to the sons of men.
We decide (God has stated) what happens here.
OR CHURCH !!!!
DO we actually build the KIngdom ??
which in Nehemiah's day and for our Jesus MOVE too...has been to completely rebuild the 12 Jerusalem walls and gates.
Or for Jesus, it meant building 12 LIVES over 3 and half years to form the LIVING PILLARS of this new thing on earth called REDEEMED COMMUNITY.....something that the Jesus Move tapped into in prototype form
All we knew was the Holy Spirit
The New Covenant
Breaking bread round each other's houses
Sharing Jesus continually
finding real disciplers with Jesus heart (see psalm 84) and not "BUILD THE BIGGEST STONE BUILDING ON EARTH" agenda folk like David Yongghi Cho to his initial shame. (Nearly threw himself out of a window)
Having all the walls in place in the Spirit
Having all the Pillars in place....real thirdlevellers
CREATES A VESSEL OF CONTINUOUS REVIVAL AND EVER CHANGING WINESKIN....
and unlike Wales....when the only guy there who knew how to run meetings in the Melchizedek order face down, was blown out in exhaustion....
and the "wonderful" teachers of the Law came in like in Galatians and killed the whole national revival stone dead.
"What the Revival lacked was teaching"
NO...WHAT THE REVIVAL LACKED WAS MANY MORE THIRDLEVELLERS.
Listen thirdlevellers teach in the Spirit....prophesy in the Spirit...by connecting with the Melchizedek Order they get administrative directions straight from Jesus Christ.....
But you don't get thirdlevellers without a whole load of Psalm 110 Volunteering......and Psalm 24 SEEKING the face of God for Himself and not "Big WORKS" and "BIG EXPLOSIONS"
God Does Do the Big Stuff....but like the second FISH CATCH...this time it is in context.
The 12 disciples are broken individuals, being made whole in Christ. They cooordinate....they all help land the amazing fish haul.
IS ANYBODY STARTING TO CATCH WHAT JESUS IS SAYING THROUGH ME HERE?
YOU CAN HAVE EITHER SYSTEM.....BUT ONE HAS PEOPLE WALKING IN THEN WALKING STRAIGHT OUT THE BACK DOOR....
AND THE OTHER IS A LIVING VERSION COMING OUT OF JESUS CONSCIOUSNESS....OF WHAT CHARISMATIC CHURCHES HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING BY THEIR OWN FLASH EFFORTS TO ACHIEVE FOR NEARLY 50 YEARS.
It's easier if we believe what Jesus actually says, and let Him build everything!!!!! It's like He knows what He is doing or something!!!!
