The contention of this book is simple: The extreme manifest presence of God is the biblical norm for New Testament believers. We label it many ways: revival, an outpouring, renewal, and certainly different moves of God have distinct flavors to them. However, regardless of the descriptive term we attach to it, we simply are not experiencing it. As we investigate a simple and powerful formula for revival, we will find ourselves deeply provoked and advancing with extreme momentum toward the goal of a city-wide outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

20 Elements of Revival- I just finished reading 20 Elements of Revival. Everyone should read this book! I wish I had the cash for a case of this book. Seriously! I keep thinking of more people who NEED a copy of it! It’s very, very, very rare for me to feel this way about a book other than the Bible. -Kathi

Just finished reading the two books you gave me…and I am buzzing in the Holy Spirit! My wife and I had an hour conversation about the depth of their implications. You have nailed it my friend. I have met few people who have put all this together….and I am in awe and grateful. I want all our leadership team to especially read 20 Elements of Revival. -Tim

In light of everything that’s happening in the world right now with ISIS and the advance of terrorism, I’d like you to read what I consider to be one of the most important prophetic warnings I’ve ever received:

As I sat up high at Comerica Park last night watching a Tiger’s game, I saw a mural on a building that God revealed to me when I first visited Detroit.

I had a dream, and afterwards I visited Detroit to minister, and then saw the mural of jumping whales which was a key part of the dream.

It’s a warning dream, and Detroit must respond in repentance and intercession—as must the nation. Here’s the picture I took last night at the game and also the dream. (This is taken from the chapter in my book The Coming Church titled Their Freedom is Your Mission.)

A Troubling End-Time Dream

    Here is a clear example of a sharp, prophetic message. Will we respond to the call or casually watch from the sidelines?

    It would be nice if all of our dreams, visions and communication from God had the feel of running and dancing through a field of daisies, but it’s more important that we receive accurate data than imaginary, feel good stories.
    This dream was anything but candy canes and ice cream. To date, other than my encounter with Hell in the early 1990s, I’ve never received such an urgent and troubling dream of God.

    The first scene in my dream represented a typical American day. I was in my basement in a really comfortable leather recliner, sitting in front of a large television. I was excitedly watching my favorite NFL team, the Chicago Bears, play in a nationally televised evening game. I was thoroughly entertained and was settling in for a great night of football.

    The scene then suddenly changed. I found myself in the captain’s seat of the largest commercial airplane I’d even seen. In fact, this jet was capable of holding over 1000 people. Everybody in the airplane was excited and ready for the journey—and they were all blood-bought Christians. They represented an end-time remnant being prepared by God for the days ahead.

Fresh prophetic message: I’d like to strongly encourage you to head out to Revival Church tonight…

If you are local, join us at Revival Church OR if not, stream LIVE tonight at!


I will be bringing a sudden prophetic message that God deposited into my spirit last night.

I’ll discuss two spiritual giants who were wildly successful in their missions—but who were both disqualified because of their hearts and emotions.

I believe you will be set free from struggles that have locked you down as God brings this piece of revelation to life for you!

Revival Church is located at 26091 Sherwood, Warren, MI 48091.

Prayer begins at 6pm (join us!) and the service at 7pm!


A major emphasis and focus of our ministry is to reach the nations with the message of revival.

Even locally, everything is setup to minister in a primary way to those who are listening and watching to our various events online. This ministry in Detroit is focused on the cities and nations of the Earth!

PLEASE head over to TONIGHT at 7pm and listen to our worship, intercession and this key teaching! The event is intentionally fast paced and broken up into two teaching segments, with worship and decrees before and after! It will rock you!

See you tonight!

Halloween: Warfare prayer tonight and a teaching you can download now

Fiery warfare prayer, worship and celebration TONIGHT at the Detroit Prayer Furnace at 7pm!

imageI dusted off an old teaching of mine form 2005 titled, Halloween: The Invitation, and you can listen to it here: 

In that teaching I deal with some very dark realities that are connected to this holiday—realities that we all must understand.

Tonight, we will be gathering together—moms and dads, kids and anybody who is ready to exalt Jesus Christ!

It starts at 7pm. The Detroit Prayer Furnace is located at 26091 Sherwood, Warren, MI 48091.







Tonight at Revival Church: A Very Important and Burning Message on the State of our Nation

imageExpect extreme visitation from the Burning One & a message that will rock us to our core TONIGHT.

I am absolutely on fire right now—burning with a message for the church and our nation.

I’m expecting the unexpected and a suddenly from Heaven tonight as we cry out for God to move in America.


Much more than a night of prayer and intercession (though that would be sufficient!), I will be releasing a very important message that every one of you will be impacted by.

If you are within 100 miles of Detroit, I implore you to cancel your plans tonight and head on out to Revival Church. Come early if you can—we will be in the WAR ROOM at 6pm in fervent intercession.

imageIf you can’t make it, you can LISTEN LIVE beginning at 7pm EDT here:

You will discover your simple yet profound opportunity to shift the direction of our nation.

What better time to begin a new series on Prophetic Messengers than today—a time when an attack on Syria is impending, and the enemy is raging.

Revival Church is located at 26091 Sherwood, Warren, MI 48091.

Opening Night at Revival Church tomorrow, Saturday, July 13th at 7pm!

Experience an atmosphere of intimacy, intercession and passionate teaching in our new prayer-fueled setting in Warren!

image Tomorrow is a special night and YOU are invited to celebrate with us!

Revival Church is serious about seeing prayer returned to first place in the church—and in the main church service.

Tomorrow night you will experience a fiery atmosphere of intimate prayer and passionate decrees just before I bring a message on our eternal perspective. We can be intimate with Jesus FOREVER—starting NOW!


The coffee will be ready at 6pm, and you can enjoy it with friends, or you can bring it into the Prep Room for fiery pre-service prayer!

Revival Church is located at 26091 Sherwood, Warren, MI 48091.


We are adding three BRAND NEW prayer and teaching nights to the calendar!

■ Mondays Night Teaching on Historic Revivals • 7-9pm • Beginning July 15th
just what did it take for revival to break out through some of history’s most remarkable leaders?

■ Tuesday Night Teaching on Intimacy & The Tabernacle • 7-9pm • Beginning July 16th
This 13-week class will transform your life!

On Tuesday nights we will peer into God’s incredible passion to commune with His own people as seen through the design and structure of the Tabernacle. Each detail in the cloth, the furniture, the spices, the offerings and priests of the Tabernacle foreshadow what was to come in Jesus Christ.  Get a copy of, “Seeing Christ in the Tabernacle” by Ervin Hershberger for $4.99 on Amazon Kindle and read  the first chapter, “Ark of the Covenant” as we explore these amazing images of Jesus Christ.

■ Wednesday Night Bible Study • 7-9pm • Beginning July 17th
“I have written to you, young men (and women), Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
And you have overcome the wicked one.”   – 1Jn 2.14b

As I prayed for God’s direction for the Wednesday night Bible study, I heard one simple 1-syllable word in my spirit…”strong”.  It’s so easy for many of us to hear a good word or a good teaching and we receive it with great emotion.  And it’s great to receive the truth of God’s Word with joy.  The truths regarding His unending love and mercy and even His redemptive judgments are great liberators that set our hearts free and on fire.

But when the circumstances and storms of life come and challenge what we believe, the truth of God’s Word needs to be rooted and grounded deep in our hearts.  It is only when we understand His Word and His promises in the context of His will and divine purposes that we can effectively stand on them, and stand on them, and persevere, and see His Kingdom established in our lives.  It’s when His Word is rooted deep in our gut that we’re able to pray and decree and legislate from our God given authority and status as His sons and daughters.

This is what we’re called to do. We’re called to take a city.

On Wednesday nights, we’re going to go deep.  We’re really going to take our time and allow the truth of God’s Word to germinate and take root and get deep into our hearts.  Then, when we pray, we will ask for what we desire, and it will be done for us, Jn 15.7.

I’m really excited about studying the Book of Ephesians.  And the more I study, the more excited I get.  Did you know that the Book of Ephesians is considered to be a NT parallel to the Book of Joshua of the OT?  Joshua led the children of Israel into their Promised Land and Ephesians is all about entering and walking in our inheritance in Christ.  Did you know that Ephesians is considered the “crown jewel” or capstone of Paul’s theology?  Did you know that while Romans was used to spark the Reformation, Ephesians and its central theme of unity in the Body of Christ will be used by God to bring unity to His True Bride before the return of the Lord?

But while the truths in Ephesians have many applications to our church corporately and the regional church we are called to serve, the power and the strength and the might that they convey to the human spirit on a personal level are simply life-changing.

I hope you will join me for a season of strength and “body-building” as we uncover, assimilate and apply the powerful redemptive truths of the Book of Ephesians.

So, you are tired of church as usual? OK! Get ready!

You will have a unique opportunity to connect with a small group of Believers who are passionate about large scale revival—and who are devoted to learning how to pray, discovering intimacy with God, encountering the Holy Spirit and preparing for ministry.

We can’t wait to get started on July 13th! (In the mean time, we are still meeting on Sundays in our current location. See you this week!)
