The Idol of Revival
Recently God spoke this to me that the statue in the book of Daniel is a picture of the modern Church
Chapter 2:31-35 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image.
This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before
thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head
was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly
and his thighs of brass, His legs of iron, his feet part
of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone
was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet
that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then
was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken
to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing
floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that
smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole
The Gold are those who sought for the revival
in the first place they paid the price laying between the porch
and altar to turn the heart of God to his people. These developed
a deep abiding personal relationship with God through fellowship
with Him and in this process they discovered deep sin and iniquity
not only in themselves but in the Ekklesia church at large. These
fell into deep repentance and confessed all that came up for themselves
and the Church and over time these men and women were changed
moving from a realm of selfish desire to a greater vision of Christ
Himself and the Ekklesia. A vision that included a love for God
Himself as opposed to loving God for the things He can give and
then discovering this same love, for those who were created in
the image and likeness of God.
And this had far reaching effects in these people and the
people they reached out to, for these people had fallen into the
sanctification process. So that when God rewarded them with an outpouring
they were the best prepared to receive of it and make use of it.
Then the next group that comes to revival is
the silver. They are also hungry for God. They knew the value
of an outpouring, they are more than likely to have a solid life
of prayer and spend a lot of time studying the word of God so
why are they any different? I see by the spirit that those in
this group are those that in times past received some level of
sanctification but when you take what God did 5, 10, 20 years
ago and wrap it in a handkerchief and hide in the ground (essentially
putting it in a burial cloth and leaving it for dead) that does
while some may believe that they are keeping that which is precious
safe, they are not, and it does not improve with age, or keep
well in isolation. Instead it becomes stale, no longer having
that freshness about it. And over time things creep in unawares.
Another feature of this group is that these are usually as those
who are not as far along in the process, because of that they
have given up less of themselves -- and God finds fault in that.
It call also be said of these people that they are those who no
not or lon longer have the ability to reach crucial mass in themselves
some would call them spiritual hitchhikers that join themselves
to someone elses revival. But they are called silver; and therefore
precious unto the Lord, but markedly less than the gold.
So then the question needs to be asked who then
owns revival God or men? Contrary to popular belief God is also
not in the habit using marksmanship techniques to hit only those
who are the most worthy (The gold and the silver.)
Numbers 11:16-29 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto
me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be
the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them
unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there
with thee. And I will come down
and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which
is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the
burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone. And say thou unto the people,
Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, -- And the LORD said unto
Moses, Is the LORD'S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether
my word shall come to pass unto thee or not. And Moses went out,
and told the people the words o f the LORD, and gathered the seventy
men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the
tabernacle. And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake
unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it
unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit
rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. But there
remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad,
and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them;
and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto
the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp. And there ran a
young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy
in the camp. And Joshua the son
of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and
said, My lord Moses, forbid them. And Moses said unto him, Enviest
thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets,
and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
Incidentally God has spoken to me that is Pentecost
in Acts 2:4.
And we are given the purpose of Pentecost as
well -- And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will
take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them;
and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou
bear it not thyself alone.
Paul speak of us being Intercessors with Christ
without the falling of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit being imparted
directly from Christ to us we can not Bear the burden of the
People with Thee and He must needs bear it alone.
This is not the same as what has been bandied
about as intercessory prayer but it does have some relation with
it because those utterings and groanings are from the self-same
spirit. And without this outpouring of the same spirit that was
in Christ you are can not be a partaker,
So one day Moses calls in 70 elders of Israel
to be anointed with the same Spirit of prophecy that had come
upon him. And so God shoots from on high and they start prophesying.
Moments later a young Israelite runs to Mosses and tells him something
awful is happening outside the camp two UNAUTHORIZED men without
the ORDINATION OF MEN were prophesying And the young man demands
of Moses: Go make them stop right this instant. Mosses only smiled and responded: Would to
God that all of Gods people were prophets.
Would to God that all men were able to hear and
utter the word that proceedeth from the mouth of the Father.
Let me ask you does scripture say that these
seventy elders were able to pass on this gift from on high to
others? No. Does
scripture declare that their off spring became The School of
the Prophets? No. Likewise also the Apostles and Prophets of the
New Testament were not able to pass on their office to others.
All these were called to be unique vessels unto the Lord
and bottle that God filled with the same spirit that was upon
Christ were non-transferable and non-refillable.
We are all called to be unique vessels unto
God but the truth is since the 1970s with the expolssion of Christin
book stores tapes and videos we have coveted other peoples ministries
and mantles and attempted to read books on how to obtain gifts
and ministries and have further sinned against God by discipling
ourselves after other men and women and ministries thereby not
going through Christ THE DOOR and he regards all that do such
as thieves and robbers and shall in nowise let any of them inherit
their true spiritual riches.
Back to our Idol of revival with every diminishing
level of revival we see a decrease rather than an increase in
more than one way.
First each group has been subsequently devalued
moving from being vessels of honor
To vessels of dishonor moving from gold, to silver,
to brass, to iron, etc.
Secondly each Group of revivalists while they
claim to be moving higher than their predecessors are actually
moving lower and lower as they become more earthly than heavenly.
This has much to do with the inner corruption of these people
and the seeking of God and calling on God not for He Himself,
Not to be able to walk with Him but to receive from him his benefits.
These are spiritual hirelings that work only for God for personal
So we come in the idol to the feet of clay. Adam
was formed of common earth or clay and God breathed into him the
breath of life. The clay or the common earth has little or no
value, it is not some exotic blend of special clay that men compass
land and sea to possess. It is not weighed out by the ounce
when clay is sought most people can dig some up in their back
yard. or lets say it another way the clay speak of the way of
So this revival in it lowest stages is borne
about by the flesh. Fleshly deeds, the doctrines of men, the
traditions of men. The corrupt mammon of the people of the flesh
we are told push this revival not the spirit of God. Things
are done for self-gratification to be seen of men, followers with
wanton eyes filled with lust etc. You get the picture. And God
really despises this type of so called revival he abhors it
God soul hates this.
Now the pieces in this idol of themselves are
only pieces. But when this beast
put together by each successive generation it become and Idol
exalting itself up to the heavens.
And because men filled with adultery and idolatry
, I am speaking of Christian men and women who worship anything
that they see with their eyes --
their pastors, teachers, and ministries, living or dead.
God even Christ Is a jealous God and shall have no other Gods
before him so even in the case of Church revival it has become
a corruption idol and God in his fury will take a rod of Iron and destroys it. Grind it to powder and let it all blow way
like chaff in the wind.
And what is that is to be destroyed? The Gold
the silver the brass the iron, God will spare none of it Paul said forgetting those thing which were behind I press.
In revival we laud all those things that were
Christ said If I bear witness of my self it is
Christ said I can not accept the witness of John
because it is from men.
Chrsit said he needed greater witness than that
of John he needed the witness of the Father .
In revival we laud or bear witness of ourself
and the acts that have happened either through us or what we have
read , or heard.
In revival we have increasingly made use other
mens ministries and words to bare witness of ourselves
I challenge you to look in pauls writings and
see where he speaks of his casting out devils blinding people
or having strips of cloth taken from his body to heal others
I challenge to you find this in the writings
of Peter and John were they lay out some pedigree to show their
authenticity or to build faith in believers
I challenge you to find in scripture where Christ
preached the healing and testimonies of people to build people
None of this is the foundation of Jesus Christ.
And therefore according to Paul all this shall be burned up and
is not count towards anything and all those that are brought in
under such corrupt means shall be burned up as well.
Christian men speak of revival,
they call for revival, they adore and worship revival, and for
the last three centuries the church that has been built on foundation
of revival upon revival
The Church with its historic revivals the teachings
and doctrines of these revivals and the teacher preachers and
ministries of the revivals of last few centuries have all become
an idol unto itself and all that would behold it.
God spoke to me early last summer and said he
will no longer revive this old corpse, no matter how people cry
and beg. God is looking for full restoration or nothing..
I fear that as it was spoken in the book of Daniel
the Lord in our day is poised with a rod of steel to smash this
idol that Christianity has become -- and that God shall grind
it to powder and let it be blown away in the four winds.
Where in this hour
are the watchman upon the walls crying out an alarm of the coming
judgments of God that are going to fall upon the Clesia?
For all those who walk
in darkness, those whos eyes are filled with envy, those who
are filled with all manner covetousness for the things of this
world, you have already received your reward. For those who have
chosen earthly and natural riches over the rewards of serving
God with a pure devotion and a selfless heart you have already
receive all that you will get, and now eternal darkness now waits
for you with outstretched arms.
the Lord God whom we serve is a jealous God and will destroy every
idol erected by men even those idols that have been erected in
his name. He will tear down your temples and tabernacles and places
of worship that have exalted men denominations and ministries.
He will take away the wealth and riches in which you trusted,
the Christian radio networks and Christian television networks
removed, the Evangelistic juggernauts
that compass the earth
shall cease. And all that has been created with the knowledge
of good and evil in the name of the Lord shall be brought to naught
and in that day it shall be known that the Gospel was to be sent
forth not by might nor by power but by my Spirit saith the Lord.
also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles,
and some of them they shall slay and persecute: That the
blood of all the prophets, which was
shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this
generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood
of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple:
verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
I will tell you that
the blood on the hands of the Pharisees and the priests of the
Jews was transferred to the hands of the Clesia and the blood
of all that the Clesia has slain in the name of the Lord and the
blood of those who have been lost will be required of the Clesia.
Corinthians 4:4-5 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that
judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time,
until the Lord come, who both will
bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest
the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man
have praise of God.
