Week 5: Receive Jesus’ Kingdom: REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION of Your Territory
By Mrs Roma Waterman, Melbourne, Victoria
Spheres of Influence: Creative Arts
Intention: Unity and REVIVAL will overtake every denomination. No one will be left behind!
Biblical Promise: Amos 9:13 – “The days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the reaper will be overtaken by the plouwman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from all the hills.”
Receive God’s Promises: An extract from Word at: http://partnersinprayer.org.au/four-seasons-in-one-season/
“This new season in the kingdom is going to be all four seasons in one season. You won’t be able to pinpoint what I am doing because it’s going to keep changing direction.”
I believe the Lord is doing this to capture the whole flow of church and people. Not just one stream, denomination or style but every person who turns their ear to him. We use the word REVIVAL a lot and this will truly be a season that is history making. Unlike some REVIVALS in the past, it will not impact one people group – it will transform many. Every flavour and church expression will be captured by God. He will not leave anyone behind. He loves his church – the whole church and He desires that all are impacted by His presence.
Four Seasons in One Season:
1. Inter-Racial. An acceptance of other races including our land owners will thrive in this season as lovers of God stand together for the greater pursuit of loving Jesus. Long standing grievances will fade as our experience of who Jesus is will be so overwhelming that who is wrong or right just won’t matter anymore.
2. Inter Denominational. Whole congregations no matter what denomination will see and experience healings, signs and wonders. The whole church will rejoice in these testimonies!
3. Generational. Raising up the next generation doesn’t mean previous generations need to retire! There’s a wrong belief that reaching a certain age means you’re no longer needed. This is a lie designed to create an orphan spirit. If the enemy can take out mothers and fathers the next generation will not have legacy and identity. This will be a season of standing side by side, embracing each other’s ministries – young and old.
4. Relational. It’s family time! There will be an embracing aside from ministry endeavours. Church will no longer be about services and events. It will be about meals and holidays together, experiencing the highs and lows because we love each other.
Pray for REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION:
Lord, we commit our vision for our nation to your vision for our nation! We lay down personal ideals to attach ourselves to the great plan you have for The Great South Land of the Holy Spirit.
