Word of the Month- August
There are certain agents that when mixed together properly can cause a chemical reaction, even explosions. I believe the same can be said about different spiritual callings and gifts. When these are mixed together and unified can cause powerful releases of the Spirit.
Revival rides on the wings of unity and we can easily see through the Word of God that when we unify certain elements of the Spirit it will cause a powerful release of revival on the world. Unity is the anointing that carries the full blessing of the Father and causes Him to command and pronounce a stamp of approval on what we are doing for Him (Psalms 133).
I believe that it is one of the most over-looked principles of revival and Kingdom building. Without unity it is nearly impossible to sustain a lasting move of God and uphold an open heaven. God is speaking a very clear word in this season about banding together in order to see the greater works of His Kingdom. The day of the one man show is over! Unity is the core foundation for functioning on a greater dimension of Kingdom power and authority. The Bible says that one can put a thousand to flight, but two can put ten thousand. If that is the case, what kind of results can an army produce? I believe that we are about to see.
Rhe Joel's army that has been prophesied about for many years is arising (Joel 2)! In this hour God is raising up different apostolic teams all over the earth that will function as one in order to see their region and nation shaken with revival. What many will come to understand is that we need every part of the body and no part is greater than another. We need all the gifts in the body to operate properly. There is no force on the earth like the corporate anointing and as these teams come together for heavens greater purpose all the previous moves of God will pail in comparison to what will be release in this hour.
There is a radical shift of thinking coming to the body of Christ. Old mindsets are falling away to make room for fresh strategy and insight from heaven. The old way of doing things will just not cut it in this hour. If we truly want to posses the land, we have to engage it with radical boldness and passion. Power demonstrations are a must if we want to see real conversions on the streets. I have seen with my own eyes good intending Christians attempt to witness with tracts and although they may have one hundred people repeat a script that they wrote up, rarely is there a powerful and lasting impact on the person they spoke with.
Let me ask you a question. What good is it if I get a hundred people to repeat a script if I don't take the time to disciple? It has to become more then just numbers for us if we want revival. Numbers are not to be compared with multiplication. We should be multiplying ourselves a hundred times over. This only comes through true discipleship. Discipleship is an important key to kingdom building. That is why there is a real emphasis on training and equipping schools of the supernatural.
God is grooming and fine tuning His church at this hour to handle the influx of souls that is coming in from the harvest. Get yourself ready! Preparation time is never wasted time. Paul told Timothy to study to show himself approved unto God a workman that rightly divides the word of truth. God is searching for those that he can approve in this hour. Are you one?
Blessings in Christ,
