Prophetic Word: The Lord Says, ‘I Am Taking My Church From Survival to Revival’

by | Mar 23, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

We are living in a history-making hour on the earth. It is a time of great contending and yet a time of birthing revival, awakening and reformation!

I heard the Lord say He is taking His church out of survival into revival. Isaiah 60:1-3 promises us that in times of great darkness in the earth, God will cause His glory to shine upon His people, initiating the greatest harvest the earth has ever seen. Revival is at hand!

Yet, in Isaiah 37:3b (NKJV), Hezekiah declared, “for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.” This prophecy was given to King Hezekiah, a righteous king who was a reformer of a nation, turning Judah back to God. He was faithful to the Lord, yet his city, Jerusalem, had become besieged by the king of Assyria, Sennacherib, and was faced with certain destruction if God didn’t intervene (much like the situation we face in America today).

Sennacherib was one of the cruelest conquerors in history, leaving terror in his wake of destruction. It is about him that Isaiah wrote, as a prophetic word of encouragement, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises up against you in judgment You shall condemn” (Isa. 54:17a).

The ‘Rabshakeh’ Assignment

In my book, Declarations for Breakthrough, I relate a dream I had in which a spiritual assignment was sent against a godly leader and reformer. The enemy’s name was Rabshakeh, and he was coming to spread poison on the back of the leader and then take a rod and beat his back, driving the poison in until this reformer broke.

The back represents the place of a man’s strength. The back was where Jesus was beaten so that we could receive our healing. In the dream, the enemy wanted to beat him down, afflict him with poison and destroy him. But before Rabshakeh could complete his mission of destruction, we alerted the authorities, who captured him. They then led us out and put the enemy’s rod in our hands to beat his back instead!

What does this dream have to do with the story of the besiegement of Jerusalem? It turns out that Rabshakeh was also the name of the emissary of Sennacherib, his mouthpiece, sent to demoralize God’s people with his words, trying to get them to give up, lay down their weapons and surrender the city. He tried to convince Hezekiah and his leaders that God had forsaken them and would not save them.

Rabshakeh’s name means “chief prince” and represents a demonic assignment against believers, leaders and even nations today. He was the voice of Sennacherib, or if you will, the voice of the devil. He sought to get into the minds of God’s people, tried to define the narrative, beating them down by relentlessly filling the atmosphere with lies. Rabshakeh’s voice filled the air with accusations against who God is, against the leaders and about the impossibility of their situation. He was spreading poison through the sound of his voice and trying to get in their heads so that they would be worn down and give up.

Don’t let the enemy get in your head! There is a relentless demonic voice that tries to talk believers out of their divine assignments. The voice of the enemy will try to convince you that all your prayers and decrees have been for nothing, and that in the end, God will not do what He said. The voice of the enemy will try to wear you down with accusations, intimidations and frustrations so that all your strength to birth revival and fulfill your calling is exhausted. Rather than being a nation changer, you seek only to survive.

Is it possible to be pregnant with revival and not have the strength to bring it forth? Is it possible to be pregnant with your miracle answer and for it be aborted or stillborn because you give up or get so distracted with problems that you lose your focus or your faith in God? Is it possible to no longer have strength to stand for the destiny of your nation because of the mental exhaustion of contending?

The Decade of Peh

You see, we are living in the Hebraic year 5782. 80 is the Hebrew word “Peh,” which means “mouth, speech or sound.” It represents the voice. During this decade, the battle is over which voice is controlling the narrative, so it is imperative we listen for the voice of God. Psalm 29:4a declares, “The voice of the Lord is powerful.” His voice always brings victory! We must also be aware of what our own voices are saying. Are our words aligning with God’s voice? Likewise, we need to be alert to the enemy’s voice and his bombarding negativity, hopelessness and fear.

Every day we are assaulted by an antichrist barrage of words. The goal of cancel culture is to get believers, prayer warriors and reformers to back down, break down and surrender. The battle over the voice is fueling the battle for our nation. In this tipping-point moment in history, God’s ekklesia must unite to stand against this demonic attack to see righteousness and justice once again established in our land by releasing our voice and God’s decree against all the lies of the enemy.
