A few days ago, I was praying with a friend when all of a sudden I saw this huge antique fire starter blowing bursts of wind into a flame. I simply heard over and over, “I am fanning the flames of revival. I am fanning the flames of revival. REVIVAL is upon us. (An antique fire starter was being used to fan the flames because God was bringing us back to the ways of old and blowing from ancient wells).
The fire of the Holy Spirit is renewing an awareness of the Kingdom within us as believers and igniting a passion to release the Kingdom of heaven on earth like never before. All creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God during this time when the enemy is doing everything possible to steal, kill and destroy. Believers have an opportunity to be a source of peace and comfort while lifting up the name of Jesus who came to give all of us abundant life. John 10:10
"For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that[a] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time". Romans 8:19-22
The painting above on the left is called “Flames of Revival”. It depicts what I was seeing during the prayer where I heard over and over "I'm fanning the flames of revival". The painting on the right is called “Under His Wings” and represents God’s constant love and sovereign protection over us in this time, a Psalm 91 reference. I'm sharing these paintings and these words as an encouragement that no matter what it looks like, God is not caught off guard. As we press into Him during this time when fear and uncertainty are high around the globe, we will encounter Him in deeper ways and He truly is fanning the flames of revival in every nation. My heart and prayers are with those suffering and those who have lost loved ones in recent days. May God comfort your hearts and hide you under the shadow of His wings.
