Many recognize we are not where we were, but we are not yet where we are going. Other realize, we know what has been, but are unsure of what is coming. Some are pointing to another wave of salvations, some are pointing to another visitation, and some are not sure what to call it. But everyone that has eyes to see and ears to hear know something of the likes we have never seen before is about to happen in the body of Christ on earth. Names like harvest, revival, outpouring, reformation, awakening, and even revolution have all been thrown around, but no clear picture of what is coming has taken hold in the most amplified voices in our nation and the Christian world. People with platforms, pulpits and places to proclaim the message, are not saying, yet, what God is speaking to the ground troops. People who do not have platforms other than Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo or Soundcloud are saying what God is doing, but their voice is yet to be amplified on a large scale, but God is about to turn up the volume on these people’s voices, for they are speaking the same thing, for they are hearing the same voice, for they all have the same head over the church, Jesus the Christ.
These men and women are not seeking to be seen or heard, they are seeking to be faithful. They have allowed the fire of His presence to purify their character, they have learned to walk in His ways, they have sought the face of a man, not the applause of people or the wealth of another. They are the ones who made it through the narrow gate that leads to life, they are the ones who are living in childlike dependence and they are hearing the mysteries of the kingdom, for they have been mining the depths of God’s heart and soaring into the throne room of God’s courts. These people have used their patio as their platform, their prayer closet as their war room, their car as their sanctuary, and they have learned how to commune with the King of kings. They are without title, without system, without the trappings of religion, they are free to sing a little louder, pray a little longer, and linger like a lover. They have learned what it means to become one with Him in spirit and in truth. These are the coming ones who will preach the gospel of the kingdom.
God is about to unlock the third fold of His threefold message of the kingdom. It is nothing new to God, nor to history, but it will be new to our generation. It will build on the past and lead us into the future. It is not a competing message, it is a completing message. I will complete the gospel of the kingdom message, it will mature the body of Christ, it will cause us to exponentially increase in the prosperity of our soul (3 John 2). Are you ready for more of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven?
In the 1500’s Martin Luther led a Salvation Reformation. He preached that we are saved by faith, not by works. It was a reformation that changed the way we view salvation. In the 1900’s we had a Visitation Reformation led by William Seymour. God restored the Holy Spirit’s power and operation in the lives of believers. It was a powerful addition to the salvation reformation. Now, we are on the verge of another reformation, a Habitation Reformation. A habitation reformation is going to reveal to us that we are called to be ONE with Christ, according to John 14, 15, 16 this is the desire of Jesus Christ, that we would be One as He and His Father are One. The habitation reformation is going to bring us into oneness with Christ. This will be adding to the salvation reformation and the visitation reformation, not replacing it.
What the Lord showed me is that the salvation reformation was like Passover, everyone must come through the blood shed on the cross to be saved; next he revealed to me that the visitation reformation was like Pentecost, everyone is to be filled with the Holy Spirit, operating in power and speaking in tongues; and the Lord said, the habitation reformation will be like Tabernacles, everyone is invited into oneness, but just like salvation and visitation, not everyone will want to engage in it. This habitation reformation, will complete the cycle of the feasts of the Lord and make us complete as the body of Christ. Remember, Ephesians 4 says, we were given 5-fold leaders to train us, equip us and deploy us, so we may be mature and complete lacking nothing. The habitation reformation voices are about to arise in the earth and we will see a habitation reformation like nothing we have seen before in our generation. There is about to be people who literally have become one with Christ in character, power, authority and joy. We are on the verge of a habitation reformation!
While in prayer this morning, the Lord and I were discussing a holy visitation. What sparked this conversation was a friend of mine in Hutchinson, KS said on Facebook, “Is anyone else done with all this rain?” It was an innocent question, but Johnny Enlow in his blog about the Kentucky Derby and how God is speaking to us prophetically through that race said, the odds of Country House winning was 65-1 and the number 65 is significant. Johnny, then said we should read all of Psalm 65. Well, I did, and what I read in there was “You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you provide their grain, for so you have prepared it. You water its ridges abundantly, you settle its furrows; you make it soft with showers, you bless its growth. You crown the year with Your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance. They drop on the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered with grain; they shout for joy, they also sing.” Therefore, I was thanking God for all the rain that has been falling, for the rain is God visiting the earth with abundance.
The idea of a holy visitation language is not new, for Rita Springer wrote a song called Holy Visitation, but the wording that God used with me in prayer that was new, is a Fire Convocation. He said to me, WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A HOLY VISITATION AND A FIRE CONVOCATION. A holy visitation sounded like God coming down as the Holy One of Israel, as the God of heaven yet again touching earth. We as believers long for a holy visitation, it sounds like revivals we have either heard of in the past or been involved in. But when God added the words Fire Convocation, I knew we were entering into some new territory. To start, I had to brush up on what a convocation was and it is a large formal gathering in either the academic or ecclesiastical realms. In this month of graduations, that play on words is brilliant, but that is our God.
What else is brilliant, is that we are in the shadow of Passover on our way to Pentecost on the Biblical calendar. I am not predicting a date, but I do think we are in the right season for what God is calling a holy visitation and a fire convocation. For Passover was a holy visitation as the spotless lamb of God was crucified for the sins of the world. The blood of Jesus alone makes us holy, so a holy visitation sounds like people that have yet to get a revelation that Jesus Christ is Lord, may have their eyes opened as this holy visitation manifests on earth. Then with Pentecost only 32 days away as of this writing, we are set for a fire convocation. If you remember, the apostles, Mary, the mother of Jesus, the other women and Jesus brother’s were all in the upper room (Acts 1:13-14), were in prayer and supplication. They did not know a fire convocation was going to happen like that, but they were obeying the last command Jesus gave them, which was to stay in Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father (Acts 1:4). They obeyed and they stayed!
Ladies and gentlemen, we are on the verge of a holy visitation and a fire convocation. This is what the Lord told me, but I like to listen for the echo, from others who are hearing the same thing and today, May 8, 2019, Mario Marillo put out a blog titled “On The Verge”. You can’t make this stuff up. Mario says, “I feel something stirring that man cannot stop. I believe we are on the verge of the explosion of divine miracles.” Sounds like a holy visitation and a fire convocation to me, what about you? I believe it is high time we pray and supplicate before God for a holy visitation and a fire convocation. Our nations, our families, our friends, our finances, our fellowships, need this more than we know, but God who initiates this idea says, WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A HOLY VISITATION AND A FIRE CONVOCATION!
