“WHAT IS THE MEANING OF A TRUE AND A REAL END-TIME REVIVAL?”
A precious daughter of The LORD from the nation of Indonesia has written to me to ask a very very critical question that I believe and know the Holy Spirit put in her heart. This particular question she has asked is very very important in relation to the point in time we are living at in the history of mankind on the earth.
Because of the magnitude and the critical nature of the question she has asked, I have decided to share it across since I know it will be of benefit to very many people across the globe.
For purposes of confidentiality, I will call her Sister Y.
The message of Sister Y
Dear brother Kevin,
Greetings to you in the love of YESHUA!
Lately I’ve heard people talking about ‘revival’ taking place in their meetings/gatherings.
Here is a question I just want to ask you: Would you like to describe to me the real/true meaning of ‘revival’? Thank you very much!
Shalom and blessings to you,
The Response By Kevin Mirasi To The Question Raised By Sister Y:
Amen sister Y
I greet you in the mighty name of The LORD Jesus Christ.
What a powerful question you have asked. How beautiful you have put it: “Would you like to describe to me the real/true meaning of ‘revival’”
So The LORD will help us here to understand what exactly a true and a real revival mean.
The times we are living in at the moment is known as the end-times. So the true and real revivals at this point in time insinuate what is known as The End-Time Revival.
So as we dissect what entails a true and a real end-time revival, there are some very key Parameters that denote a True and A Real End-Time Revival and these are as follows:
1-A true and a real End-Time revival is controlled and directed by the move of The LORD through the Holy Spirit i.e. The Holy Spirit takes charge of a true and a real revival.
This Holy Spirit-inspired revival began on the day of Pentecost as stated in the book of Acts 2:1-18 below:
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?” Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.” Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy”.
2-A true and a real End-time revival is all about The LORD Jesus Christ. This is because a true and a real End-time revival is about Repentance for forgiveness of sins. The one who forgives sins of those who have Repented of their sins is the one who died on the cross of Calvary so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. Him who was sent to the world to save the world is The LORD Jesus Christ. When He was starting His ministry, He immediately mentioned what exactly He had come to the world to proclaim, and This is very very clearly stated in the book of Mathew 4:17 “From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
3-A True and a Real End-Time Revival is for the glory and honour of The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit.
So humility and absolute Righteousness and Holiness is the full hallmark of a true and real End-time Revival, the name of The LORD is glorified, honored and revered in a true and a real End-time revival. The men (and women) of God that are used in such End-time revivals are mightily used by the LORD so long as they embrace humility, righteousness and Holiness. So a true and a real End-time revival is all about the kingdom of God Almighty and not the kingdom of men. It is all about exalting the name of The LORD. So for the servants of The LORD to achieve the status of vessels of honour in the sight of The LORD in a true and a real End-time revival, the servants of the LORD must maintain humility so that they exalt the name of the LORD and not their names.
4-A True and a real end-time revival require a complete surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. And so prayer and fasting before the true and a real end-time revival so as to empty oneself so that the temple of the LORD is filled with the power of the Holy Spirit is very very essential as it leads to separation from the world. This brings about absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ.
5-A true and a real End-time revival is all about entrance into the kingdom of God Almighty i.e. it is all about: "how do I enter into the kingdom of God in Heaven?"
So it’s all about the covering of the precious blood of The LORD Jesus Christ for cleansing and sanctification followed by the baptism of The Holy Spirit so as to be rapture ready.
It is all about preparing the way for the coming of the messiah to rapture His bride. So it is about harvesting of souls for the kingdom of God.
In this real and true End-time revival the truth about the end-times are preached as revealed by the LORD in the Holy Bible.
6-A True and a real end-time revival is about seeking the LORD in truth and in spirit. This is through praise and worship of The LORD in reverence, honour, truth and spirit.
7-When all the above parameters are adhered to, then the Holy Spirit manifest Himself through healings, cleansing, purification and sanctification.
A true and real end-time revival is about being set free from the bondage of the devil, evil spirits, generational curses and the world itself. So miracles are manifested by the LORD through the massive and mighty move of The Holy Spirit.
(a) We are currently living in the period of The End-times and the LORD is pouring His Holy spirit as He promised in the book of Joel 2:28-29“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.”
So the LORD is using very many avenues to conduct this true and real End-time revival e.g. via facebook; you-tube; websites; open air crusades & revival meetings; Holy Spirit filled churches; home fellowships and other forms of ministries etc.
(b) Now that we have a true and a real end-time revival then we also have a false revival whose hallmark is the preaching of prosperity gospel to build kingdom of men instead of building the Kingdom of God. They even have fake miracles in these false revivals. In these fake revivals instead of consulting The LORD God almighty, they engage in witchcraft.
So discernment is very very essential at this point in time as discussed above so that the truth is known because as Timothy stated in the book of 2nd Timothy 4:3-5 “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.”
PREPARE THE WAY IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS AND FULL SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are lord and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
