I wrote this just little over a year ago, I believe it to be just as revelant today as it was then, God is still calling his mighty men and women of valor to the frount lines.
God is the one who draws those willing vessels whom are his to himself and the Holy Spirit is the one who convicts of sin - these men and women have heard and felt the convicting Power of the Holy Spirit and can see the sin all around them - and begin to be convicted and repent and pray and cry out to God - Change me Lord - remove from me all that seperates me from you and they have a sense of just how undone and and lukewarm they truely are and begin a journey, thus allowing God to change them and a journey of personal revival within their very being - they can no longer casually look at sin or compromise in any way nor compromise the word of Go- in fact they begin to hate sin and only want true unity with Christ and to live for Him to be a true disciple for Christ and they begin to have a hunger to see the lost saved.
This personal revival brings within the heart - to seek out become equally yoked with hungry men and women who also are crying out for change and revival within themselves and otheers in the body of Christ, and the revival that stems from this is all a miracle and the grace of God as He changes the hearts of willing man back to Himself.
He will not force man to change - but those who are truely His and hate sin and want change - He will engage within their lives and they are witnesses who go throughout the eart a mighty army - mighty men of Valor -also known as the rement - where Christ is the Chief Commander.
Whenever sin abounds and as much of the church sleeps - God will engage this Rement and raise up leaders commissioned and empowered to go forth and do battle - He will raise up a few prophets - who will cry - REPENT - Watchmen on the wall - understanding the enemies tactics Intercessors and people of prayer who know how to battle in the spirit and on their knees - these are all signs of revival on the rise.
These last days warriors will fight what I believe to be the greatest spiritual battles this earth has ever known in the near future - and will walk against great persecution - some put in prison and and some will die for their testimony of Christ.
To be a revivalist today is not for one to build themselves up to be seen or for personal gain or to become ones favorite man of God in this day and hour! to be ran after by many from conference to conference - from church to church - NO! - it will not be a popular nor safe thing to do in this sinful secular world of today and as never before they will be hated by the apostate church - called a cult - called to Radical - Deceived - Rebellious - sin in exposed - Jealously and hatred towards these saints is alresdy flurishing among many in the church - and words spoken against what God himself is putting in place - Yet it really doesn\'t matter for they hear their shephards voice and are lead of the Holy Spirit and have begun to count the cost. They are becoming God\'s workmanship.
Any and all who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ are being - CALLED RIGHT NOW!\" - for many are called - but few are chosen! - and yet in revival - the few bring in the many - for it is souls that are at the root of tis revival to reach as many for Christ as will surrender to the gospel - repent and be saved - For the prodical to come back -and for whole groups of people to be changed and for these saints to be grounded in Christ to survive the coming darkness that is coming upon this earth and to be that witness and light in the darkness.
Some will hear the heart of the Lord in what has been said here and begin to seek Him and cry out \" Lord Change Me - Remove from me - All -the darkness - all the sin that seperates me from You - send your cleansing fire - for I am found - naked - wretched and spiritually poor - Purify my heart and give me clean hands and strengthen me with your Holy Spirit and draw me close to you Lord - perfecting in me what you have started - for it is no longer I who live - but it is you who lives within me and you are the Lord of the Army - the Lord of Hosts - recruit me Lord and teach me your ways - Use me Lord for these Last days as I run this race to the finish in victory for the prize set before me.
One - today does not go into revival worrying how long it will last - but I can tell you - the days are evil - and time is short - and according to the Revelations of Jesus Christ - these revival warriors will last up to the return of Christ - many dying for their testimony and joining others under the alter of Christ. These are of a different breed - These are the witnesses who are by His side day and night - called to sacrifice - called to the harvest - called to expell the darkness.
No there is no glamor in being a revivalist - or prophet - or watchman on the wall - in these days of evil upon the whole earth - but our rewards are souls and are eternal and not of this earth and are all for the glory of God.
I pray you hear the call and count the cost and be willing to join this last days Revivalist - slaves of Jesus Christ for the gospel - ready to do battle for the very reason Christ came - SOULS -
