A Confused Notion of Revival

Our mistake is that we want God to send revival on our terms. We want to get the power of God into our hands, to call it to us that it may work for us in promoting and furthering our kind of Christianity. We want still to be in charge, guiding the chariot through the religious sky in the direction we want it to go, shouting “Glory to God,” it is true, but modestly accepting a share of the glory for ourselves in a nice inoffensive sort of way. We are calling on God to send fire on our altars, completely ignoring the fact that they are our altars and not God’s. And like the prophets of Baal we are working ourselves into a frenzy as if we could by violence command the arm of the Almighty. 

The whole error results from a confused notion of revival and a failure to recognize the moral laws that underlie the kingdom of God. God never moves whimsically; His ways are never impulsive or erratic. He never sends judgment unless there has been a violation of His laws, nor does He send blessing apart from obedience to those laws. So precise are His movements both in justice and in mercy that an intelligent observer, aware of the circumstances, could predict with complete accuracy any visitation of judgment or grace God might send to a nation, a church or an individual.

A Prison Inmate Before Facing the Death Penalty Asked for a Pen and Paper. This is What He Wrote

A prison inmate on a death row was asked his last wish before he could be electrocuted in the electric chair, he asked for a pen and paper then wrote:

“Dear mum, If the law was fair today you would be here seated next to me waiting to be electrocuted in the electric chair, but since the law is blind I have been convicted for the crimes we committed together. Mum remember how it started, do you remember when I was 3 years old when I stole my brothers sweets? you didn’t correct me, remember very well when I was five the day I stole my neighbours’ toys and hid it at home you said nothing, mum remember when I was 12 when I hid my cousin’s ball in the garage when he had come to play with us at home and you said that you did see it yet you saw it. Do you remember the day I was expelled from school at 15 years? Dad wanted to punish me but you refused and that very day you had a bitter argument with dad about this because you where defending me , you said I was still young you said the teachers where wrong to say that I was not attending class. You defended me, you said I was right yet you knew I was wrong. Mum remember very well, you saw me steal our neighbours’ bicycle when I was 17 but you didn’t report I sold it but you were silent mum. You loved me so much yes you loved me but you you didn’t correct me, instead you spoilt me. That is how it started and it graduated slowly until today when I will be electrocuted for bank robbery and murder. I was very young I just needed your guidance mum, by the time you will be reading this I will be gone.

Yours truly, your loving son.”

To all parents out there, the Bible says. Proverbs 13:24 (NIV): “Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.

Mysteries of Trump & the Church (By Nita Johnson)

Below I am going to list several different experiences I received from the Lord to help us understand what He is doing and where He is going. To perhaps clarify this means of communication and see it from a Biblical perspective, let me begin by rehearsing an experience given to Abraham of Old Covenant renowned:

In Gen. 15:7-21, we see that God gives Abraham (Abram at this time) instruction on a particular type of worship of Himself with which He wanted Abraham to engage. (Please take a minute and read the passage.)

When Abraham complied with the Lord’s instruction we see an unexpected series of events unfold:

First: The Spirit of the Lord did not respond immediately as expected which necessitated Abraham to arise and fend off the birds of prey. Later that night, the Lord God sent a sign and a warning of preparation, followed by a promise.

In Gen. 15:12-17 we see that a horror of great darkness came upon Abraham and as the sun, set a smoking furnace and a burning lamp passed between the sacrificial animals. The Lord spoke to Abraham prophetically in conjunction with the vision. He told him that after his passing, his descendants would go into a strange land where they would be enslaved and endure much suffering. Then God would bring them out with great abundance. This period would last for 400 years.

The “smoking furnace” represented Egypt’s tyranny and the resulting slavery that would be pressed upon Abraham’s descendants. The “burning lamp” was the promise that God Himself would provide the sacrifice and initiate the needful deliverance thereby sending light to the impoverished Jewish Nation. At that moment Abraham was the happy recipient of the New Covenant and what would have to transpire for his offspring to become those who would “bless those who blessed them”. They would in fact be the bearer of the Light of the world in the Messiah, and so it has been!

God still speaks in this way wherein He foretells things that He will do to bring forth great good to the people of the earth who are willing to receive it. The time of preparation may be difficult at best, but in the end, we will have beauty for ashes.

Please consider the following experiences in light of what I just shared:

The first section of events I will share will help you understand how the Lord dealt with me regarding Donald Trump, our duly-elected President.

2012 was the first time I shared regarding the Cyrus Mantel that God was about to send our way to enable mankind to accomplish a much-needed work in the earth.

When it looked as though Mr. Trump was going to run for office, I felt that he would be a principal bearer of this Mantel. However, as it turned out, he was simply testing the waters and felt it was not yet time. (I delivered the message in Portland, OR.) It was uncertain as to whether Mr. Trump would enter the 2012 race, and as such, I chose not to mention his name as being an important part of that company of people who would bear that important Mantel.

Just prior to delivering the message, I was experiencing something very unusual: for perhaps two weeks, I felt as though I was living in the time compendium of King Cyrus. I was not experiencing the whole of his reign but, the interaction of the prophetic with the secular world as it occurred in the days of Cyrus. I was totally encompassed by THAT reality. It was as though I was on the inside of the palace, looking out at the then present world, not visa-versa.

Again, I did not refer to the key person as Mr. Trump except to one confidant, as that hope seemed to be all but lost in 2012. How could I forget that I served the God Who calls those things that are not as though they were!?! I do not know! I mean is that not the nature of my whole calling as a prophet?

Moving on to 2015: This is a brief memorandum of another experience that immediately followed. When Ben Carson decided to run in that election, I thought I had missed it in terms of Mr. Trump, and that Mr. Carson would be God’s Cyrus. So, I went with Ben until the Lord spoke to me otherwise through a vision informing me that Trump was His Cyrus. He assured me that he would not drop out but finish the course and win, fulfilling all the Lord called him to do! Therefore, I am now unmoved by all that man does in attempt to destroy God’s plan through President Trump.

I also prophesied in 2012 and again in 2015 that the Cyrus Mantel (Is 44:21-28, Is 45, Ezra 1) would be like a blanket, covering many people God has chosen for this hour to help Him bring forth His full purposes. They would rise in the Church as well as in the secular world, all with a moral perspective on what needs to happen and their role in the process. The days of my Cyrus indoctrination has laid the groundwork for the way I see things even today. When I look at POTUS I don’t see the President of the United States so much as I see Cyrus bringing down the mountains to raise up the valleys to prepare the way of the Lord!

This month, October of 2018 I received several other visions. However, in the midst of the visions listed below, I was in an experience which seemed to put me into sort of a timeless tunnel such as I have only experienced a few other times in my Christian walk. By this means the Lord gave me total recall of the things He began showing me back in 2012.

#1 The first was remarkable: On my wall appeared a vision, it began with an eagle of light. Then under the eagle appeared a line of light shooting almost straight up. There was but a small bend in this light causing it to rise at the 1:00 hour. Behind this scene the numbers 2019 appeared and began to move across the screen from left to right. Following the numbers, these words appeared: look at what I will do in….as the words came to a standstill, the whole line read: look at what I will do in 2019!

#2 The vision of the eagle of light that appeared on my wall disappeared and suddenly I saw yet another vision of an eagle of light which also appeared on my wall. This eagle of light was turned toward a ball of light and was soaring through the heavens toward that ball. The line I saw in the previous vision (#1) had changed. This time instead of ascending, it was in a position of descending but only at the top which, by now, was turned toward the ball. So, in the two visions (#1 and #3) it was difficult to determine whether the line was following the eagle or directing it. Nevertheless, it was inextricably connected with the movement of the eagle of light soaring in full and glorious flight.

The eagle looked so strong and noble that he was almost frightening. It seemed that nothing could overcome him. His eyes were steadfastly set on the ball of light and could not be distracted! While he was glorious he was also fearless, majestic, and carried in His bosom the ability to provoke justice on God’s enemies. He was clothed in the 7 Spirits of God—the Son of righteousness with justice in His loins. (Is 11: 1-5)

2019 shall be the year God’s righteousness begins to be revealed in stunning splendor. The world will look on in awe and wonder for many who do not want to bow their knee will find that the Scripture cannot be put aside, Psalms 2 has been stamped on the heads of the people. When the angel of the Lord shall see it, the wrath of the One seated upon the throne at the Father’s right hand, shall declare it and His Word shall stand fast. Those who have mourned over the evil shall be blessed. Those who have mocked His holy name shall mourn.

For in this the Scripture Matt 21:44 shall be fulfilled that says: Whoever this Rock falls upon shall be crushed to powder. All people everywhere fear the Lord for He is coming to bless His people and pour out His indignation upon the wicked who refuse to repent.

#3 Next Experience: I saw an eagle on fire with the glory of God. He was covered with flames of living fire. His eyes were filled with God’s holy fire. Seeing Him fly down toward me from a mount covered with flames of fire I was aghast in amazement. He was the largest and most glorious Eagle I have ever seen. I knew He was the Eagle Who is our God and King. Somehow, I knew He was the image of the revival of fire soon to grace the world.

The words: “Holy, Holy, Holy is my King, Holy is the Lord God Almighty! My heart is exalted in my great and terrible King!” rang out and tears filled my eyes as I found myself riveted on the Majesty of the One Who was headed toward me from that fiery Mountain! Finally, He came to light in front of a most glorious bride adorned in a most lovely wedding gown covered with precious stones which are the works of the saints.

I understood that this Eagle was the Bridegroom here to join with His bride for the purpose of bringing glory to the Father. The Eagle then became a handsome Prince and immediately they became one. All honor, all glory be unto to You Who was, and is, and is to come! The Church will laud Him, the world will fear Him, the Angels will extol the One Who gave Himself for the World.

He is coming! For the bride and the Spirit say: Come Lord Jesus, Come!

In His Love,
