Prophetic Word: Advance—Revival Fires Are Intensifying
The word the Lord is speaking for the month of April is “Advance.” He is saying advance because revival fires are intensifying and it is time to press in to the heavens—just as a military unit would advance on the battlefield, we must advance in the spirit.
This, however, is not a battle. This has already been decided and is already on the move, but in order to stay in cadence with the rhythm of heaven, we must advance with the Spirit of God.
I have been tapping into (feeling) the atmosphere of the Heaven frequently this month. The month began with extreme excitement and dancing in the heavenlies. It was as if all of Heaven was celebrating a new season that has shifted onto the Earth. The energy flowing from God in this season is life giving and celebratory. It is refreshing and revitalizing.
Encounter with the Revival Fire
On the night of April 5th, as I lay down to sleep, there was a song playing on repeat in my spirit. I had not listened to this song for several weeks, so it’s not like I had heard it on the radio earlier in the day for it to be caught in my head. This was a song resounding from my inner being, from the Holy Spirit. The song was Jake Hamilton’s “The Anthem” (I will leave a link at the bottom of this message for you to listen to it, but finish reading first). The lyrics that I kept hearing repeat were these:
Wake up child
It’s your time to shine
You were born for such a time as this …”
I could not shake it, so after about a half hour of this, I rolled over, grabbed my phone and pulled it up on a music app and listened to it—over and over again. As I listened, and sang along I was suddenly caught up in a flow of the glory that, had I not already been laying down, would have knocked me backward.
I could sense that God was trying to get a message to me, so I started pressing in and that’s when I felt it—the revival fire and the glory train. I could feel the rumble, I could sense the heat, I could feel the fire in my belly burning with such intensity it was propelling forward movement—advancing with great momentum.
I have no other way to describe it other than to say that in the center of my belly was the sensation and energy of a raging inferno…burning for revival on Earth. I immediately knew what it was that I was feeling, because I have felt it before during intense encounters with God. It was the fire in the belly of the glory train that is bringing revival to the Earth. This is a revival unlike any we have ever experienced before, it’s not going to be containable and it is without question unstoppable.
Periodically since September 2016, God has given me momentary glimpses into the heavenly realms and allowed me to actually feel the intensity of revival fires as they burn. These have all been very significant moments that have been carved into my DNA.
This night—on April 5th was the most intense I have felt it to date … so much so that it almost felt as if I was going to “explode” internally, my face was burning, my heart was racing, my hands were extended and I was nearly doubled over from the momentum of this fire in the Spirit.
Those who follow me on my public Facebook page may remember this, but the next morning, while it had subsided substantially, I was still feeling the residual effects of it—and shared this post with my friends there.
“Today Heaven is resounding with celebration! There is so much activity and excitement that it is like a full throttle locomotive with a raging fire burning in its belly!! Revival has been released on the Earth and those who are ready to burn with a passion for harvest are being ignited! I feel the fires of revival and I hear the sound of celebration!! Oh my … it’s uncontainable, this one can not be stopped nor can it be quenched!!! Receive the fire!!! Fire Fire Fire!! Bam bam bam! Fire fire fire fire!! Yes, God!!!”
For several days after this experience, I felt the residual effects of this “fire” and had several other prophetic messages from God to confirm this.
Wake Up—The Time is Now!
On the next morning, the building, where I live in Houston, was “testing” the fire alarm system. It’s a new construction and part of the building is still under construction, so this was just a routine part of the inspections process for them. No big deal.
At 9 am (9 being the number of birthing) I was suddenly awakened by the blaring sound of the fire alarm.
When I realized what was happening, I remembered the email from the week prior letting us know this would be happening. But, God used this routine fire alarm test to speak to me. As soon as I was tuned in to the spirit again, I heard the Holy Spirit say this:
“It is time for my church to awaken to the fires of revival. This is not a drill, this is the real deal, awaken, awaken, for the fires are burning in the heavens and they are coming to purge, to cleanse, to restore, and make fertile the ground for a ripe harvest. There has been a birthing in the heavens and it is here, it is now! The fires are coming to advance my kingdom and push forward (advance) my agenda. No longer will the agenda of man be useful in my kingdom, this is a time for my purpose to be complete. Awaken and prepare for the time is NOW!”
This sent me into a time of prayer which allowed me to once again tap into the celebration happening in the heavenly realms, and connected me to the momentum of the advancing of the fire of God as it move across the Earth.
It was as if God was confirming to me the experience I had the night prior—conveying to me the seriousness and intensity of what is happening in the spiritual realm right now.
Remember, the lyrics to the song from the night before? “Wake up child … YOU were born for such a time as this!”
The Best Revival—Ever!
The next day, April 6th, I received another prophetic confirmation.
I had a business lunch meeting across town, and I was running a little late, traffic was backed up and I realized in the middle of the freeway that I needed to get gas! Not a good position to be in when dealing with heavy “lunch traffic” in Houston! So I prepared to exit the freeway, praying I could make up the time lost after I got my gas. As I approached the red light at the end of the ramp, I looked up at the van in front of me … the words on the back of the van said “A-1 Fire.”
I literally started laughing and thanking God for yet another confirmation of what He is doing right now. See God speaks to us all the time through natural signs and circumstances, we just have to learn how to listen to His voice and discern how He is speaking to us.
God confirmed once again that these fires are present and are set for “top notch excellence.” From this “A-1 Fire” I felt God was saying this fire is the best, it is not like the other revival fires that have burned in the past—it is the “top quality, best of the best.”
This season of revival that is upon us is going to be way better and way different than anything we have ever seen in the past.
Advance in April
April is a month for ADVANCING the kingdom, a month to move into position and prepare for the revival fires that are already here. Hear me, the revival angel is already on Earth, the fires are already burning, and the glory train is already on the move. They are already burning, God just needs us to tap into them and let them do the work that He wants them to do in us, in the church and in the Earth.
The purpose of these fires is not solely for our refreshing and revival experience, although it will and does bring that. The purpose is to bring God’s love and power to the people who have not received it yet. The purpose is for love based evangelism to show people the way to the Father, this is not a season for judging, it is a season for loving people and showing them the heart of God.
It is time to ADVANCE in April.
The intensity with which the fire of the God is burning in the spiritual atmosphere continues to increase at an unprecedented rate. Something really big is about to happen globally to usher in an amazing harvest of people for God’s kingdom family.
If you want to be part of this, then let’s take a moment to activate it right now with a prayer. Only pray this prayer if you really mean it and really want to be part of what God is releasing in the Earth.
Prayer of Activation
Father God we come to you and we stand in faith declaring “Yes.” Yes, to revival, and yes to the fire of the spirit of revival burning in the heavens. Yes, to stepping in for a time of purging, revealing, and healing so we can be properly equipped and prepared to handle what you are calling us to do in this season. Father make us instruments of revival to be used by your Holy Spirit to show people the LOVE of God. Forgive us for those times we have judged others or not presented your heart of unconditional love and acceptance to them. Open our hearts and prepare the way for us to move into a season of reaping, a season of bringing in the harvest with the love, compassion, grace, and mercy of the Father. Thank you God for sending revival, thank you for the fire! We receive revival fires into our lives right now. Bring us into alignment with YOUR purposes, bring us into alignment with your agenda. Give us strategies from heaven to flow in proper timing and to stay tuned in to the rhythm of heaven. In Jesus’ Name!
