Revival College Sa

  1. 1. Revival College SA <ul><li>Embracing Communities, Appropriating Revival </li></ul>
  2. 3. &quot; If you have no wish to bring others to heaven, you are not going there yourself .” C.H. Spurgeon
  3. 4. Regarding Revival <ul><li>Every country in the Western World has had a revival every 50 years. </li></ul><ul><li>America has almost missed it… </li></ul><ul><li>Will South Africa be on time? </li></ul>
  4. 5. Signs of the Times <ul><li>Corruption is rife; within government AND in the Church. </li></ul><ul><li>Disregard for and little value placed on life. </li></ul><ul><li>2008; 80 000 babies murdered through abortion. </li></ul><ul><li>Young people are dying everyday – attack on their calling & purpose. </li></ul><ul><li>Rise of forefather and idle worship. </li></ul><ul><li>People rather go to Sangomas than to the Church. </li></ul><ul><li>Recession. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Glimpses of Hope <ul><li>Well known potato farmer and Evangelist, Angus Buchan, filled stadiums to capacity in 2008. </li></ul><ul><li>Young people are becoming more and more aware of God; black and white is becoming clear as grey areas disappear. </li></ul><ul><li>Angus’ Mighty Men conference ’09 draws 200 000. </li></ul><ul><li>Sbu Ndebele, transport MEC gives back a R1.1m MERC he received as gift for work done – government responds by re-evaluating ethics. </li></ul>
  6. 7. Prophetic Words <ul><li>“ From Cape Town to Johannesburg I am calling forth dread champions of </li></ul><ul><li>faith,” says the Lord. “ I am going to sweep through this land with fire from </li></ul><ul><li>heaven and the destiny of this nation shall come forth refined in holy fire . </li></ul><ul><li>I am re-establishing my rule and reign in South Africa and I will pour out </li></ul><ul><li>healings, signs and wonders even as I call multitudes into My kingdom. I am </li></ul><ul><li>going to pour out my miracle working love and power and destroy the </li></ul><ul><li>yokes of drug addiction, alcoholism, violence and prostitution ,” says the </li></ul><ul><li>Lord. “The children of South Africa have not been forgotten by their Heavenly </li></ul><ul><li>Father. For many have cried out for deliverance on behalf of the children and I </li></ul><ul><li>am coming with My presence and My holy fire to touch lips, to sanctify </li></ul><ul><li>hearts and to commission a new generation - an apostolic company of </li></ul><ul><li>believers in South Africa. The market place and the church based ministries </li></ul><ul><li>must learn to work together, so that the fullness of My resource and blessing </li></ul><ul><li>can be release into the nations.” “South Africa, I have loved you with an </li></ul><ul><li>everlasting love and I call you forth to be a nation who will pray, a nation </li></ul><ul><li>who will evangelise and a nation who will work out the Great </li></ul><ul><li>Commission in fear and trembling before Me for I am a Holy God and a God </li></ul><ul><li>of Holy Love.” Catherine Brown </li></ul>
  7. 8. Prophetic Words <ul><li>Upon returning to the US, I was taken in the Spirit over South Africa </li></ul><ul><li>and saw God healing divisions and bringing unity . A heavenly </li></ul><ul><li>counsel is being formed of ministers from Africa and around the world </li></ul><ul><li>who will bring blessings and turn back curses. This healing has already started within the Church and will spread like a wildfire to heal and restore racism, the economy, and government. The Lord is saying, “ Everything that is happening right now is by My design. Do not be discouraged or listen to the negative reports ” Doug Addison </li></ul>
  8. 9. Prophetic Words <ul><li>“… as they meet and pray their colours and differences fade away - the oil of </li></ul><ul><li>the Holy Spirit beginning to flow from the platform - the oil flowing out to the </li></ul><ul><li>people that are gathering in the stadium - the people in the stadium are being </li></ul><ul><li>saved – healed - demons being cast out - the dead coming back to life - the </li></ul><ul><li>lord working as the ministers come together to pray - as they meet as one </li></ul><ul><li>body …” Dave Howe 30.9.98, Living Waters fellowship, Margate. </li></ul><ul><li>Wellspring Prophetic Ministries, England. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Prophetic Words <ul><li>The season for the training of the 'army of the Lord'. </li></ul><ul><li>The Moses/Joshua company of servants to raise up and train the Lord's army. </li></ul><ul><li>These trainees must be transformed from slaves to soldiers and matured from children to sons . These to be trained and equipped to conquer and possess a new land according to a decentralized model (no king or head quarters). Unless they are trained in a decentralized model they will not be able to conquer and possess the whole territory that the Lord intends for them to have. </li></ul><ul><li>The Lord to pour out His rain of love to nurture, refresh, heal and strengthen the children. </li></ul><ul><li>The Lord to pour out His fire to equip and empower His sons for the time of battle . </li></ul><ul><li>The Lord begins to visit His people to revive them and call them to a deeper walk with Him. </li></ul><ul><li>Revival spreads to many, many places through ordinary people . </li></ul><ul><li>Starting trumpet calls: NIRSA April 2008, Might Men gathering April 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Johan Boot, 1994 </li></ul>
  10. 11. Prophetic Words <ul><li>“ God will move in a mighty way in South Africa, in the Body of Christ. And no one will </li></ul><ul><li>stop Him! …Each person who has left South Africa will return, bringing back seven </li></ul><ul><li>others. The Holy Spirit showed me that a lot of believers from your nation in the </li></ul><ul><li>rest of the world will return : The Holy Spirit will speak to believers: “Go to your </li></ul><ul><li>nation. Your nation is not Austria, your nation is not the UK, your nation is not </li></ul><ul><li>Germany. Your nation is South Africa.“ …An army of believers will return to SA… a </li></ul><ul><li>vision was of a Cross: The Lord is putting this Cross in the land of South Africa. The </li></ul><ul><li>Cross is put in a strong way in South Africa. No-one can move it. It is like deep in </li></ul><ul><li>the earth of SA. It is towering over Africa . …Your land is going to walk in signs and </li></ul><ul><li>wonders, word of wisdom and knowledge, prophecy, inner healing, physical healing. And </li></ul><ul><li>through those signs, the natives will come to Jesus! They need healing and He is going </li></ul><ul><li>to heal them. God will move among the natives, they will destroy their idols and </li></ul><ul><li>they will come to Jesus. The Lord is faithful. South Africa is a land of the WARRIORS. </li></ul><ul><li>When SA walks in signs and wonders it will not only be for the glory of Africa, but for all </li></ul><ul><li>the nations of the whole world.” DANIEL (A MESSIANIC JEW) - APRIL 2008, </li></ul><ul><li>JERUSALEM </li></ul>
  11. 12. Why can we expect a revival? <ul><li>Charles Finney taught: </li></ul><ul><li>God’s providence points to revival of His will </li></ul><ul><li>Conspiring of events open the way for Revival </li></ul><ul><li>Manifestations point to outpouring of H.S. </li></ul><ul><li>Wickedness – grief, humility & distress in Christians </li></ul><ul><li>Driven to prayer, breaking down – resistance, sorrow & tender hearts </li></ul><ul><li>Revival follows outrageous wickedness </li></ul>
  12. 13. &quot; God always visits his people when they reach the point of desperation .” Stephen Olford
  13. 14. What happens in Revival? <ul><li>Pat Robertson (700 Club) teaches: </li></ul><ul><li>Glory from Heaven invades the human condition </li></ul><ul><li>In God’s Light the allure of the World, pleasures & possessions loses its hold </li></ul><ul><li>Hearts are satisfied with the Presence of God. </li></ul><ul><li>Drawing closer to God; sin – distasteful, loathsome </li></ul><ul><li>God refines & purifies His people. </li></ul><ul><li>G. places His Love & Compassion for Lost in hearts </li></ul><ul><li>It begins among God's people & permeates into society </li></ul>
  14. 15. Questions we need to ask! <ul><li>What will happen if revival comes? </li></ul><ul><li>Will we be prepared? </li></ul><ul><li>What will it take to get revival in South Africa? </li></ul><ul><li>What will Revival look like? </li></ul>
  15. 16. Why a Revival College? <ul><li>God wants to revive His people. </li></ul><ul><li>Important to teach “consciousness” of God. </li></ul><ul><li>Personal Revival is the first step to a National Revival. </li></ul><ul><li>Prayer precedes any great move of God; therefore: </li></ul><ul><li>Our hearts need to be softened </li></ul><ul><li>Lives broken for the lost and needy </li></ul><ul><li>Become disciplined in seeking God . </li></ul><ul><li>Revival is NOT taught in Bible Colleges… </li></ul>
  16. 17. Harvesters are few <ul><li>You need ask NO permission from anyone to do what God called you to do! </li></ul><ul><li>Prophet Kobus, Marc Bredencamp, Ray McCauley.. </li></ul><ul><li>Not enough of these leaders (in offices) to handle what God is about to do in this country </li></ul><ul><li>NOR enough servants in their Churches </li></ul>
