Again the word of the Lord came to me saying thus says the Lord the God of Israel like these good figs so will I acknowledge those who are carried away captive from Judah whom I have sent out of this place for their own good into the land of the Chaldeans for I will set my eyes on them for good now I'll bring them back to this land I will build them and not pull them down I will plant them and not pluck them up then I will give them the heart to know me that I am the Lord they shall be my people and I will be their God for they shall return to me with their whole heart. Jeremiah 24:4-7
The message about the prodigal son Luke 15 first Corinthians 15 verses 50 and 58 Proverbs 22 verse 6 Sewing and reaping 1 Corinthians 3:6-9 goes in correlation with 1st Corinthians 15 verses 50 and 58
In 1 Corinthians 15 verse 58, it says therefore my beloved brother and be steadfast immovable always abounding in the work of the Lord knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
In 1 Corinthians 3:6-9 that says who then is Paul or 5:29 who then is Paul and who is Apollos but ministers to whom you believe does the lord gave to each one I planted Apollos watered but God gave the increase so that neither he who plants is anything nor he who waters but God who gives the increase now he who plants and he who waters are one and each one will receive his only water according to his own labor that ties in the first Corinthians 15 verse 58.
The heart of God is saying don't let your labors make you feel like you're doing it all in vain for you are doing a watering and a planting I'm giving the increase.
God is moving and drawing his bride to Him and Matthew 22:1-14 Luke 14:15-24 talk about the wedding feast there are those who were invited to the wedding feast for the King's son and they chose to make excuses and go a separate route so the king had them all banished and you know until then he said to send people out into the highways and byways and draw my people in to allow the strangers to come into the wedding feast allow anybody and everybody whoever wanted to come in to come in.
Revival is coming it's already here he's drawing his people back he's changing hearts and minds he's in a business of your restoration and reconciliation and Malachi chapter 4 verse 6
During times of great turmoil disaster, God uses this time to bring people to Him.
In Luke 13:2 through 5 it says in Jesus answer and said to them do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered such things I tell you no but unless you repent you will all likewise perish are those 18 on whom the talons alone fell and killed them do you think that they were worse centers than all other men who'd walked in Jerusalem I tell you no but unless you repent you all likewise perish.
The heart of God is saying that he's using times like this to draw people back to Him!
The revival that I'm seeing is one where God is doing it everyday Deliverance change being broken marriage is being restored relationship with the family with children with loved ones being restored and reconciled God is having a revival right now as we speak see when we see these things and others that we don't like it's not being judgmental it's the Holy Spirit revealing things in us that we need to change.
Kind of like what Jesus did with Mary Magdalene when they brought her to him to find out if she deserved to be stoned or not and that he stooped down and drew a line and wrote in The Sand and then each one of them turned and dropped their stones and walked away cuz they found that they each had some kind of sin in their lives.
In a twinkling of an eye which means people will be quickened the armor Lord is not too short that he cannot save Jeremiah 31:16-17, the holy spirit is moving through the Earth moving in people's lives.
God wants to receive the glory for revival God does not want to share his glory God does not want to share his power with anybody else it's for him through him and in him, he wants to be able to bring people to him through his what he's doing.
1 Peter 4:17 God is shaken up his people he's calling for his people to turn from their ways to be ready to repent to look to Him.
