This is the Rest . . .
For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. Isaiah 28:11-12 (KJV)
Everywhere the Wind of the Spirit of Life [Rom. 8:2; Rev. 11:11] is blowing fresh new vitality into the Church of the living God. Reports come from near and far of the sweeping changes that are taking place over the whole globe. Wherever there are believers that are hungry and thirsty for the things of God there is a fresh breath stirring earthen vessels to renewed life!
The Spirit of Truth [John 14:17; John 15:26; John 16:13] is stripping away the scales of deception that have been held in place by tradition, and lack of teaching. He is sending His anointed ones to proclaim and teach revelation truth so that the Body of Christ might have the vision of God.
Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish. Proverbs 29:18 (AMP)
Pentecostal outpouring is flowing into every denominational group, shattering decades old strongholds and releasing the army of God to move in the things of the Spirit of Holiness and Resurrection [Joh. 11:25; Rom. 1:4; 8:11].
“Olde tyme” Revival is hitting planet earth!
This is the Refreshing . . .
This army speaks with other tongues! They have entered the rest and refreshing of moving in the power of God instead of the power of man. They have been equipped for the campaign at hand by the Holy Ghost! The weapons of their warfare are not carnal but are mighty! [2 Cor. 10:4]
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)
Jesus commanded His followers to be filled with power from on high before they went into the world to minister [Acts 1:2; Acts 1:4-5; Acts 1:8]. They were not going to be ordinary people any longer. Their task was going to require supernatural ability. God had chosen them to demonstrate the resurrected Christ just as He has chosen you and me in these last days.
These people have no fear in them for they have received the Spirit of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. [2 Tim. 1:7]
Believers, Spirit baptized believers, have the manifestation of the Presence of the Spirit of the Lord accompanying them.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
