The North Georgia revival has entered its fifth year with 30,000 people having been immersed in baptismal waters. “God has never asked us to grow His church…that’s something we shoulder and wear because that’s just the culture,” says Christ Fellowship Pastor Todd Smith.

Smith says pastors nationwide have given themselves to growing the Western church, but what they need to be doing is giving themselves to God in prayer. Smith believes a resurgence is coming back into the church, and pastors and leaders are emphasizing prayer again.

“If preaching could have thrust us into the next Great Awakening it would have happened decades ago,” Smith says in an interview with Charisma News that every significant move of God has started with prayer.

Now, he’s praying for the revival of the pulpit.

“Repentance is part of the currency for revival,” Smith says. “Once there is true repentance in the church, there will be a revival where men and women preach the uncompromising truth even if it’s uncomfortable. Pastors in America need to raise the standard and call God’s people to purity and holiness instead of being swayed by the culture.”

Christ Fellowship has dedicated their church to prayer, holding seven prayer meetings a week. Now they are seeing miraculous creative miracles happening in the baptismal waters. A woman whose body was riddled with cancer was baptized and completely healed. A few weeks later, she went to the doctors for a CT scan check up and they called her back in because they thought the machine was broken. Turns out, God had completely wiped the cancer from her body.

A woman’s leg grew out half an inch, a girl who was born without peripheral vision was completely healed, psoriasis healed in the waters, self-inflicted cut scars healed, blind eyes and deaf ears are opening. All happening in the baptismal waters. Watch the interview with Pastor Todd to hear in depth what God is doing in their church.

This is the greatest hour for the body of Christ to be alive. As pastors in the Western church move away from pleasing the congregation, to making room for the Holy Spirit to move, revival is inevitable. God is seeking hearts throughout the earth that are loyal to Him.

Second Chronicles 7:14 says, “If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

The church needs to humble themselves before the Lord, truly repent of their sins and remove all of the high places where they have allowed idol worship in the form of pleasing man and adapting to the culture.

Smith believes prophetically that God is going to start raising up those in the shadows to be used mightily in the next, and final, move of God in the Earth.
