KATHY—The Awakening and Revival in motion will not be known for emphasis on preaching “heaven or hell, turn or burn”. Actually, neither heaven nor hell is a life-giving daily focus, and we are not looking for an awakening based on golden streets or fear of hell. (Neither luxury nor fear is a healthy motivation for relationship, nor the path to abundant Life.) Awareness of God and participation as a son or daughter that demonstrates His Kingdom on earth (as Jesus did) is the Awakening we need because that’s an awakening that will ignite Revival based in RELATIONSHIP!
WHAT we need more than better politicians is an awakening move of God. WHERE we need that move of God is in the Church. WHY we need that move of God (perhaps it might better be labeled a reforming move of God) is because, having lost sight of our purpose in the earth, the Church is bemoaning and reacting rather than decreeing and acting. HOW the move will come is determined by the resistance from those He is attempting to move upon, i.e., the types of circumstances in which they will be willing to hear from God. There are numerous creative circumstances in the Bible that were allowed to develop to awaken purpose in those who eventually became Sunday School story heroes. But then, their goal was not to get to heaven. It was to stop the giants and the systems that dared defy the Lord of Hosts. WHEN God moves, we must be ready to yield to a paradigm that allows His government to reform us before we inadequately try transforming a nation. (1Pe.4:17 “judgment begins in the house of God”) After not preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom (the rule of God, not just a get-out-of-hell-free message; Matt.4:23; 9:35; 24:14) and Kingdom culture for 200 years, we are crying out in our nation for a political figure to legislate morality to produce a culture that doesn’t destroy itself and shed innocent blood. (Matt.5-6 is Kingdom culture)
As the people of God assemble today, may they hear and experience the powerful Word of God that propels them forward and may they go into the coming week stronger than the week before.
”The righteous shall move onward and forward; those with pure hearts shall become stronger and stronger.” (Job 17:9, Living Bible)

This is the day the Lord has made so… I will rejoice and be glad that the Holy Spirit enables me to edify others in it! 1Thess.5:11 says “So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it.” It is possible to turn someone’s day completely around. It is even possible to turn someone’s life completely around with just a few encouraging words inspired by the Holy Spirit. Edify means “to restore by building, to rebuild, repair, establish, to promote growth in Christian wisdom, affection, grace, virtue, holiness, blessedness.” We are praying you discover daily that you are edifying others so they may realize their value in helping others. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)
When God restores something that generations have lost, He must put emphasis on it. In this century we have seen an emphasis on Bible teaching, healing, faith, prophesying and joy. Each time God has restored one of these truths and highlighted it the teacher and the teaching have been rejected and even vehemently opposed by many. God must emphasize and spotlight each of these things because they have fallen into such neglect. Entire generations have become ignorant of them so that they must be jump-started. You cannot start a run-down battery with a typical 10 amp battery charger. You must put a 250 amp charger on it if you want the car to start right then and be useful then rather than many hours later.
