HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
This is a great day for me and I am speaking on your behalf. Those who joined in this season of fasting and prayer will have many rewards. You prayed and made your requests before the Lord and you are waiting for the Holy Spirit to descend with your answer. I am here to inform you that the answer is here already. Only believe for all things are possible.
Over these past 21 days of Prayer and Fasting, we have set aside some things in order to fill our lives with something better. It is impossible to spend time seeking the Lord, asking Him to send revival, and something does not happen, because God is faithful, and His Word promises that He responds to the prayers of His people.
The prophet Joel records a promise of what was to come for God’s people:
“And it shall come to pass afterwards, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. Even on the male and female servants in those days, I will pour out my Spirit. And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth.” Joel 2:28-30
He goes on to say in verse 32, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
The book of Acts records what happened in the upper room as people were fervently calling on God. In Acts 2, Peter addresses a crowd and quotes the prophetic words of Joel declaring its fulfilment as the Spirit was being poured out on people.
This powerful promise from Scripture is available to every believer today. How encouraging to know that the God of the universe wants to use us in such a dynamic way! His desire is to speak through us so that His presence might be displayed to those around us.
Notice this happens as the Spirit is poured out. One of the most powerful prayers we can pray is for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our lives, in our cities, in our nation, and throughout the world. God’s desire is always to answer that prayer, but it begins with His people crying out for more!
Charles Finney says this about revival:
“A revival may be expected when Christians have a spirit of prayer for a revival. That is when they pray as if their hearts were set upon it when Christians have the spirit of prayer for a revival when they go about groaning out their heart’s desire. When they have real travail of soul.”
Finney says a revival may be expected as we desperately call on God. As we have committed ourselves to prayer and fasting these past 21 days, God has moved and is moving and responding to our prayers, and we can believe with all of our hearts that revival is upon us!
This is what I want for the Mystical Order and the Spiritual Baptist Faith. I want you to pray and wait for the Lord to descend as in the days when Daniel prayed and waited for that hour on the twenty-first day for the answer to his prayer.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit 30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
