God is moving powerfully through many different streams—which one is the right one for you?

imageIn the last month Revival Church has hosted guest ministers from a variety of streams—Bethel, TheCall, The Bay of the Holy Spirit and others.

I absolutely love dipping into a variety of different streams within the body of Christ!

Watch this new XPmedia video where I talk about this important topic. Which stream is best for you?

THE BAY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Out of all the streams, I’d say that the revival movement through John Kilpatrick and Nathan Morris is the closest to my own DNA. I come alive in these meetings like nowhere else! The call to the cross, to repentance, to a sobering and urgent yet deeply freeing revelation of the severity of the situation on the Earth grips this revivalist deeply.

But, their DNA only matches a fairly small percentage of my own. God has done MUCH in me personally that is unique. This is the way it should be!

I met someone once who lead a house of prayer (IHOP model) in another state. He said that literally 100% of their ministry is modeled precisely after IHOP. There is no departure whatsoever.

I grieved just a little bit. How can we launch into a ministry without God revealing to us his specific mission for us? How can we robotically copy another? Yes, we can glean key principles from a movement, but we must not forsake our personal mission.

And, oh yeah, another stream is represented at Revival Church THIS SUNDAY as Corey Robinson will be with us!

I’m both awakened and deeply grieved in my spirit.

capture-000000309I can barely type. I’m trembling as the Holy Spirit is raging within me. My God. The cross must be central in our churches again. The Gospel must be preached like in the days of old again.

This weekend marked what I consider the most critical corporate gathering for the church of Detroit this year.

Watch the video of Nathan Morris preaching “Candy Cane Christianity” here: http://bayrevival.org/media_archive_sub.php?id=205

The Bay of the Holy Spirit with Pastor John Kilpatrick and Evangelist Nathan Morris visited Detroit Thursday and Friday, and those unparalleled national leaders of revival carried their responsibility for Detroit on their shoulders.

The call for deep repentance and a return to the cross is the message of the hour for Detroit. I'm truly troubled, but it's an appropriate troubling. It's time for religious systems to be confronted. The ENTIRE church of Detroit should have been at these meetings!!!

When the nation's premier revivalist, a father of revival, calls a meeting, the church must respond. I was SO GRIEVED that just a few hundred people from the Detroit region were there out of over 1450! The rest were people from other regions and nations who paid the price to travel from far away to respond to the call to gather!

The message Nathan delivered on Thursday is unlike anything we hear in churches today—but was common in the great revivals of history.

Let me say this very clearly: It is a rare thing indeed for someone to escape the fires of Hell—and a tragically large number of church goers will be shocked to find themselves there one day. It’s horrifically common.

The great revivalist Leonard Ravenhill said:

I read of the revivals of the past, great sweeping revivals where thousands of men were swept into the Kingdom of God. 
I read about Charles G. Finney winning his thousands and his hundreds of thousands of souls to Christ. 
Then I picked up a book and read the messages of Charles G. Finney and the message of Jonathan Edwards on 'Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,' 
and I said, 'No wonder men trembled; no wonder they fell in the altars and cried out in repentance and sobbed their way to the throne of grace!'
Luke 12:5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
The fear of the Lord must return!

The Terror of Hell Box Shot 2011 175x283 ResourcesThere's a lack of brokenness and repentance in the church today… we are blind to the depravity that sin creates. People have actually made arguments against deep, troubling brokenness, mourning and travail! Gut wrenching repentance and surrender at the cross must return to the church!

There's a disturbing movement away from sin/Hell consciousness… some believe that we only focus on God and ignore the trauma of sin and what the enemy has done.

Hell is referred to over three hundred times in the New Testament. It’s referred to rarely today.

THE MIRACLE IN MODESTO

A low budget, terribly acted but extremely anointed traveling production called Heaven’s Gates/Hell’s Flames resulted in one of the greatest sudden moves of God in modern American history.

The production simple depicts people who suddenly die and then are either welcomed into Heaven or forcibly dragged by demons to Hell.

Over 81,000 people came to the production in Modesto, California over 28 days with 33,000 documented salvations.

Pastor Glen Berteau: Somebody said, "I hear you've got scare tactics." No, that's reality tactics. I said, "That's the reality of it all." The reality is that there is a Hell, just like there's a Heaven. And good people if they don't know Jesus, they're going to go there.

imagem10.28

I’d recommend watching another low budget but riveting film called m10.28. I can barely get through the scene I’ll post here. In fact, the experience I wrote about in my book The Terror of Hell is terrifyingly similar to what you see happening at the 4:50 mark… through the 5:30 mark. I experienced being dragged toward Hell and then suddenly waking up in overwhelming fear with a message of awakening and repentance nearly destroying me it was so severe.

Hell is real. Most go there. Here’s the video link: http://youtu.be/VllhuffKyJA

AWAKENING

It’s time to wake up church. No more politics. No more apathy. No more games. Wake up!

Detroit! No more embarrassing turnouts! No more excuses! No more unnecessary busyness that keeps us away from the mission! No more!

It’s time to gather! It’s time to repent! It’s time to consecrate ourselves for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among us!

FALSE GRACE MESSAGE

Beware of the false doctrine of hyper grace that minimizes repentance, judgment and Hell and results in an abdication of the responsibility of the Believer. No form of grace removes the believer's responsibility to repent for his sin. This doctrine is responsible for many in the church being lulled into false security. I am convinced that many go to Hell because of this doctrine. I know The Terror of Hell message must become more of a focus of our ministry.

Bay of the Holy Spirit Thursday & Friday THEN Chuck Maher from Bethel is at Revival Church Sunday!

image

I consider The Bay of the Holy Spirit event with John Kilpatrick and Nathan Morris to be the premier event of the year for Detroit.

For a city that’s primed for revival, can you even imagine not diving into a twice lit fire? First God moved through John Kilpatrick at Brownsville and THEN he did it again at the Bay of the Holy Spirit!

This weekend is a rare and special gift of God from God and I can’t wait to encounter God the way I did last year! Come on!

Last year the anointing was like liquid. It’s the only way I can describe it!

Chuck Maher from Bethel Church in Redding

imageThen, Sunday at Revival Church, Chuck Maher will be with us!

Here’s some info… spread the word!

Chuck was born in Saint John, NB, Canada and is a graduate of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA. He came into the kingdom in 1994 and shortly after was powerfully touched by the Toronto Outpouring. As a result, his preaching, teaching and prophetic gifts were birthed out of intimacy with God. From September, 2010-May, 2011 Chuck traveled with Steve Backlund (Igniting Hope Ministries), helping to bring a prophetic message of hope to the body of Christ. Chuck currently lives in Redding where he serves Global Legacy (Bethel’s Apostolic Relational Network). He also spends much of his time traveling, calling forth the prophetic destiny of people, cities and nations.
