image First- TONIGHT, Monday, November 2nd at 8pm Eastern (just over two hours from now)  I’ll be live on blogtalkradio.com along with several other Revival Church ministers, revivalists and hungry people from all over the nation and around the world. 

We’ll be praying, declaring and releasing fire into Detroit at 8pm sharp, and will then move into discussion on the topic of strategic revival.

You can participate by:

Also, a NEW teaching from yesterday’s service will be uploaded to www.detroitrevivalchurch.com/teaching SOON!  It’s part two of Six Enemies of Fulfilled Destiny.

A WHATEVER CHURCH

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a bit raw, incredibly desperate.  I am craving a revival and move of God in our region- and I’m certain that church as usual isn’t the appropriate structure. 

There are over 19,000 cities in America, and none of them are experiencing revival.  Something’s wrong.

There are hundreds of thousands of churches in America, and few are experiencing revival.  Something is very wrong.

We can’t continue with the same structure, the same model of ministry.

Last night was an unusual night at Revival Church.  Prayer started as it always does at 5pm.  Then, at 6pm, when we were to launch into worship, our worship leader was having an encounter with the Lord.  Several people were around her, praying, warring, interceding.  Banners were being waved over her as she contended under a veil.  It was powerful.

I leaned over to a friend and said, “Do you think it’s time to give the announcements and take the offering?”  He laughed.

Yet, in many churches, the activity of the Holy Spirit would be stopped to ensure everything remained on schedule.

Well after the normal 6pm starting time, our worship leader shared about her encounter, about how fire was all over her hands.  She remembered an encounter she had of going to heaven a year ago, and that the trembling is intense in her yet again.

I want that kind of person leading worship at Revival Church!  I’m losing interest in all of the ‘supposed to’s’ of church planting.  I am raw, and I want a raw move of the Holy Spirit.

I want a place where people tremble as they walk through the door.

Last night someone was praying and declaring on the microphone and she collapsed under the glory of God.  She was still there as I started to preach.

A strong prophetic atmosphere kept increasing throughout the night, and several were impacted by revelation from God at the altar. 

After it was all done, someone said, “Revival Church is a ‘whatever’ church.  Whatever God wants to do at any time during the service just happens.”

I like that.  I think we need a lot of “Whatever Churches” in our nation.
