Get Ready to Serve

by | Sep 16, 2008 | Evangelism

earth-horizonSomething powerful is on the horizon. The Lord is equipping His church for the
greatest outpouring the world has ever seen. We must do everything possible to
prepare our hearts and to train others for this soul-saving revival. We also
must be willing to be used by the Lord in new, unfamiliar ways.

A fresh evangelistic anointing is about to rest upon true believers. Fear
will give way to Holy Ghost-boldness as the Spirit of God directs His people
into uncharted spiritual territory. The thirsty masses are about to be handed an
unsolicited cup of cool water that will change them for eternity.

In an interview with a major news organization I was asked if the
evangelical church should be responsible for solving the world’s starvation and
disease epidemic. Though I don’t believe the answer lies solely with the church
(it’s a little more complex than that), I do believe that we are mandated to
feed, clothe and help the poor. If we don’t, then according to the Word of God,
our religion is lifeless.

However, we can’t ignore those who are starving for fresh bread and fresh
water from heaven. Their deep hunger pains can only be satisfied as we offer
more of God’s presence, power and prophetic insight.

We can do this by allowing the Lord to show up in our church services and
home groups without restraint and by showing the hungry and thirsty multitudes
that God wants to meet their needs. He can save, He can heal, He can deliver—and
we can prove it.

The world is craving a touch from the Creator. We must provide the atmosphere
and the opportunity for miracles to take place.

I believe God is going to empower us by sending a new wave of revelation as a
foundation for operating in the prophetic. The Lord is going to take the
anointing we enjoy inside the sanctuary to those who need it most—outside in the
marketplace! Our cup is running over and we’re about to offer it to strangers.

In the months and years ahead God’s people are going to become acutely aware
of the spiritually malnourished around them. He will reveal to us the depth of
their cravings as if we were watching a documentary on starvation.

The spiritually sensitive are going to experience revelation knowledge of
those who are dying of spiritual malnutrition and disease. Vivid images of their
desperate plight will be dropped into our spirits. This will take place in
schools, shopping malls, the local grocery store—anywhere we find the
spiritually destitute.

Without warning, the Lord will use His obedient followers to delve into the
very core of the lives of strangers. Hidden secrets will be revealed to the
believer, and out of a heart of compassion, he or she will share them with the
lost to prove that Jesus Christ is alive. These words will be so direct and
precise that conversions will take place.

My favorite prophetic words have always been those that are given outside the
church walls. These are the divine appointments that reach into the lives of
people who often know nothing of biblical principles and doctrine. All they know
is that some brave heart just read their mail.

Such precious, God-ordained meetings will become more commonplace in the days
to come. God wants our words, anointed of the Holy Ghost, to penetrate their
darkness of doubt and fear. These words, fitly spoken, will literally shock the
unbeliever into reality.

Ask God, this year, to give you words in season for the unconverted. That
cup of cold water and taste of fresh bread could be the beginning of the end of
spiritual world hunger.
