Revival Witness

Watch the full teaching here March 4, 2018 // This is part eight of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. As part of the spread of revival, we need a double-barreled testimony: our personal experience and the Holy Spirit’s witness. The Spirit’s witness amplifies our words so they will be heard. The testimony of the Holy Spirit through us comes by our receiving of the gifts of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self control. These gifts are given as part of a new life. Other signs of revival include spiritual intoxication, visual manifestations like tongues of fire, shaking, loss of body strength, laughter, sighting of angels, and aud

Revival Humility

Watch the full teaching here February 25, 2018 // This is part seven of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. Our pride usually is what prevents the next wave of revival from happening. Pride is a destructive sin. We must lose the illusion that our activities will win the day. We cannot obtain revival through human effort; we have to let God be in total control. Our job in a revival is to humble ourselves and simply be subject to God’s power. Pride claims all-surpassing power for itself to do with as it pleases, and this kills revival.

Revival Love

Watch the full teaching here February 18, 2018 // This is part six of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. God expresses His love towards us in many different ways, and it is felt in a unique way during a revival. The overpowering affection of God surging through us toward the Son is almost unbearable – John Wesley called this God’s Perfect Love. Ask for God’s perfect love. You already know God’s great love for you in Christ; now, expect God’s fiery love for Christ in you! When this type of love happens in a revival, it is a glorious distraction and disrupts our lives. A group of people feeling this fiery love and passing it on to others is essential for a revival to take place. R

Revival Glory

Watch the full teaching here February 11, 2018 // This is part five of a twelve-part teaching series on revival. Glory is the forceful manifestation of God’s presence. The glory available to us is much more powerful than what Moses encountered on Mount Sinai because it is this glory that comes with revival. This revival glory is a peek of the coming age of a new heaven and a new earth. Not seeing, or not wanting to see, the signs of the coming age blocks revival. In revival glory, we are living “into” the coming age. The Spirit living inside us comes at a price: people around us won’t always understand. Living in God’s glory can cost us acceptance, and at times, our reputation. We wil
