Promo video: Bullhorn Conference in Poplar Bluff, Missouri

Join me in Poplar Bluff, Missouri for the BULLHORN CONFERENCE on July 10th and 11th!

Lower Third Poplar Bluff Schedule small

Discover how to hear God’s voice and contend for revival as you release powerful prophetic messages into the nations!

The last time I was in Poplar Bluff I released a prophetic word. This is a key area and this is a key season:

JOHN BURTON 5-09-2015

I FEEL THE LORD SAYING THIS LOCATION WILL BE A BULLHORN FOR THE NATIONS. THIS IS A VERY CLEAR WORD OF THE LORD THAT I’M HAVING RIGHT NOW. A BULLHORN FOR THE NATIONS THERE WILL BE MESSAGES COME OUT OF THIS PLACE THAT OTHER REGIONS HAVE REJECTED. AND DO NOT PRESUME YOUR VOICE TO BE QUITE.

DO NOT PRESUME YOUR VOICE TO BE INSIGNIFICENT. OBEY MY WORD AND SPEAK THE WORD OF THE LORD. AND WHEN THAT PURE WORD COMES OUT OF YOU I WILL SHOUT IT TO THE NATIONS FOR YOU.

I FEEL SUCH A WEIGHTY SOBRIETY ABOUT THIS. I FEEL GOD IS WAITING FOR A VOICE THAT WILL SAY THE THINGS THAT WILL GET THEM KICKED OUT OF MOST CHURCHES, THAT WILL SAY THE THINGS THAT WILL CAUSE THEIR FINANCES TO COME TO A STAND STILL- SAY THE THINGS THAT WILL CAUSE THEM TO BE MOCKED AND PERSECUTED. HE IS LOOKING FOR A PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT TRYING TO SURVIVE ON THIS EARTH AND PAY BILLS AND BUILD A REPUTATION. HE’S LOOKING FOR A PEOPLE THAT WILL DIE THAT WILL BE HUMBLE WHO WILL SURRENDER ALL, WHO WILL OPEN THEIR MOUTHS AND SHOCK THE NATIONS WHO WILL DELIVER PEOPLE FROM SURE TORMENT IN HELL.

I HEAR THE LORD SAYING THAT BEFORE REVIVAL BREAKS OUT THERE IS GOING TO BE A GREAT CALIBRATION TO THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD THAT HAS BEEN HIDDEN UNDER A BUSHEL. NOW IS THE TIME TO SHOUT THE MESSAGE TO SHINE THE LIGHT THAT WILL BLIND THE EYES OF SO MANY THAT ARE NOT WILLING TO SEE. THERE WILL BE RESPONSE BY A READY REMNANT AND A HUNGRY PEOPLE WHO WILL FINALLY MEET JESUS THAT THEY’VE ONLY YEARNED FOR.

LOCATION: Conference Center, 727 Ridge Avenue, Poplar Bluff MO

TIME/DATE: Friday, July 10th 7pm, Saturday, July 11th 1pm & 6pm

A church that’s a challenge to run with | Revival Church’s unapologetic mission

imageThis testimony from a 16 year old about the hardcore challenge of Revival Church totally rocked me—and it will you too.

Amy Smith and her 16 year old daughter were having a discussion about the intense environment at Revival Church. The discussion was revealing and quite powerful:

Amy: It seems to be quite the challenge to run with Revival Church. Why do you think that is?

Abby: Because there is accountability through the preaching and teaching. Stuff gets called out and you can't hide. There are no excuses. At other churches it might be easy to act or think everything is fine and you can slip and it seems normal because others are doing that too. It seems lukewarm.

At Revival, it's more than just being taught basics, you feel like you're in training. It's like you're being built up, not just filled in.

Amy: Why do you like Revival?

Abby: It's straightforward and there's nothing fake about it. I can respect someone who is straightforward and tells the honest truth for your own good no matter how hard or risky it is than someone who sugar coats it just so you can follow them.

Long ago I made a promise that I would never tone down the activity of the Holy Spirit out of respect of those less hungry.

I often am celebrated for taking that stand as most people presume I’m simply in favor of more freedom during the services. I am, but that’s barely the tip of the iceberg.

When the Holy Spirit moves, a culture of brokenness, conviction, submission, training and fear of the Lord is also the result.

After 24 years of ministry, I’m absolutely confident that my wife and I have the skills to grow a church of at least 200-300—if we toned down the message, the call and the expectations. I’d have a healthy salary and a stable life. There would be no need to develop additional income streams. We’d be beloved by many! However, my stomach turns when I think about that option. It scares me a little that it’s available to me!

I have never had even the slightest passion to lead a ministry that affirmed the lukewarm, game players or those with their own agenda. That may seem harsh, but the truth is that the end is near and the mission is extreme. Only those who are willing to die in the battle are going to crucify their flesh, lay their own desires down and run toward the enemy.

Of course, even the most immature, weak and struggling are welcomed in if they are ready for boot camp and the resulting war! It’s the hungry, rejected and broken that will be leading the charge!

I want to challenge pastors to grab hold of the vision God has given you and call everybody up much higher into it. When the call reaches the point where comfort is violated, many will probably bolt for the exits but those who remain are more precious than you can imagine.

It’s that remnant army that will turn the world upside down. Abby Smith sure seems to be developing as a general in that army.

Burning ones in Detroit : A school of fire : $200 discount

theLab is a school of the Holy Spirit that’s raising up burning ones for Detroit and the nations of the Earth.

There are a few key strategies for releasing revival in the city of Detroit that we are deeply involved in—and you are invited to run with us at theLab.

Everybody involved with theLab is stunned at the grace and miraculous power that has landed here. The spirit of revival is truly visiting us and we are inviting Detroit and the nations to burn with us.

imageHost theLab Team in your church

Invite our team to facilitate a powerful school of burning in your church. We are available to travel domestically or internationally and hold weekend, seven day or one month long sessions. We will prophetically impart the fire and life of God into those who register for the school. We’ll train in revival, prayer and city impact and look forward to investing deeply into everybody!

imagetheLab Prayer Events

Pray Magazine interviewed me about prayer-fueled city strategies and I made a simple yet powerful point:

It’s impossible to hate or compete with other pastors if you are praying blessing and the life of Jesus into their lives.

This is the Friday night strategy. I’ve heard much about the struggles within the landscape of the church in Detroit. The fastest road that I’ve discovered to legitimate unity between pastors and churches is prayer. As we call pastors to host us, and then travel with us each Friday, we are developing key relationships and breaking through division.

We are calling together 1000 people to pray with us and the pastors of Detroit every Friday night from 10pm to midnight. Check out the schedule and location of the next prayer event at our newly redesigned site: www.revivallab.com. The favor of God is on this prayer movement as doors of churches across the region are opening to a growing team of prayer warriors!

theLab Staff : Cool confirmation : You are invited to apply

We are developing our launch team, and YOU are invited!

In this message:

  • Amazing confirmation
  • The Vision
  • The Requirements
  • The Plan

At noon prayer yesterday we prayed for two specific things:

  1. That there would be a rapid response to the call
  2. That people would respond from other nations

image

When I got home from prayer, Amy handed me a letter (snail mail!) from The Netherlands. He wrote, in broken English,

“I have heard about the teachings of Rev. John Burton… I desire to receive more information… I desire to come in contact with them who walks in the way that Rev. John Burton have teach. I don’t have email possibility. Thank you very much in advance.”

Amazing! No internet, no email yet God use him to send a confirmation from the other side of the world!

Then, later that day, I received a message from someone in Australia asking how they can participate.

That’s rapid, and that’s international!

The Revival Church staff is leading the charge in the development of theLab staff, and others have already come on board with us. It’s still very much in development, but here’s some of what’s being prayed and thought through:

THE VISION

The vision is really what it has been since we’ve arrived in Detroit. To gather together burning revivalists, intercessors and prophetic messengers who will carry the fire of the Holy Spirit to Detroit and the cities of the Earth.

We are very aggressively calling together 1000 intercessors to gather every Friday night in prayer, and theLab staff will be leading them.

Additionally, theLab will be developing a monthly large scale event where we’ll bring in anointed men and women of God to infuse life into this region.

THE REQUIREMENTS

In order to join theLab staff, there is a mandatory level of participation (you basically have to be extremely available and ensure theLab is your primary ministry focus several times a week).

  • Arrive by 9:45pm every Friday night for theLab prayer event and be ready to impart into the church leaders and others through prayer and the transfer of our key values of intercession, prophecy, intimacy and deliverance.
  • Attend every noon prayer meeting. The only excusable absence is for those who have to work during the noon hour. Those that have a job MUST still attend at least one noon prayer event. The noon prayer meetings are critical as we debrief, listen to God for further strategy and pray together.
  • Attend Revival Church’s evening service (when we move to Sunday mornings, people who are on theLab staff who attend other churches will attend their own morning church service, but they will be required to attend the Revival Church evening service(s)). This service is the primary briefing for the week and it’s a time of deep prayer, corporate worship and impartation.
  • Attend weekly training sessions. This has yet to be developed, but we plan on developing a ‘school of the Holy Spirit’ where we will train people in the core values of theLab so they can, in turn, impart them into others.
  • Travel locally together when I’m ministering in another church or when theLab is serving in a particular function. The team will join with me as instruments of fire as we infuse churches and conferences. An example is the upcoming Fire in February conference where theLab has been asked to provide the intercession coverage for each of the event’s services. (be sure to register at www.awakeningnet.us)
  • Traveling with me outside of the region (more than 2 hours away) will be optional, but is still encouraged.
  • Participating in other ministries is allowed, but theLab must be your primary commitment. If there is a conflict between ministry schedules, it’s required that you fulfill your commitment to theLab.
  • You will have the opportunity to serve in a variety of ministry functions at theLab. Administrators, teachers, singers, worshipers and others will be needed to run the ministry.

Keep in mind as you evaluate whether you can participate or not—these are minimum requirements, and are not optional.

THE PLAN

  • We’re in the development stage right now, and we need as many people to jump on board during the pre-launch as possible. You will help pioneer and form this new ministry of revival!
  • We are considering 4 or 6 month semesters/trimesters.
  • The pre-launch starts immediately. Simply show up at the next prayer meeting and/or send me an email at john@revivallab.com.
  • We’ll be training in the prophetic, intimacy, intercession, reformation in the church and other key focuses.
  • theLab staff will be giving leadership to the 1000 intercessors who will be giving leadership to the entire region.
  • This is open to anybody who is a deeply committed Christian, and who will be honorable in their commitment to the team and the mission at theLab.
  • For those moving from other states or nations, you will be fully responsible to secure housing, transportation and the necessary finances to live in Detroit.
  • **SPECIAL: those who join us in pre-launch any time in February will be exempt from any tuition that we may implement at launch time—for life! (this does not include costs for conferences, materials, etc.)
