The Power Of God Fell In A Tiny Town, At A Tiny Church, In A Tiny Room With 6 People!

I’ve been on a Holy Spirit adventure! The Spirit of God has literally been transforming my life. Many are talking of “the coming Northwest Revival” that will hit the Portland/Vancouver area. I’m here to tell you, it’s happening now! You don’t have to wait for the prophesied event. Jesus will meet you NOW. The supernatural has been happening in my life! Yes, all the crazy stuff that unfortunately a lot of Christians don’t believe in and fight against!!! The vivid tangible presence of God that makes you feel like the Glory Cloud just fell in your bedroom or Church. Yes, stuff like that! Unspeakable JOY! And so MUCH more!

But even better… a surrendered, changed life, living in obedience to Jesus and walking in holiness while being totally aware of his love and acceptance of you. To me that’s REAL REVIVAL. It begins with repentance and surrender to Him.

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.” -Acts 3:19

It’s in that place of surrender where all the good stuff happens. The message that God has given me to share is that just as it was true in my life that I needed fresh surrender, repentance and turning back to the Lord, many in the church are in desperate need and don’t even see it! Once your eyes are opened by the Spirit of God you will see it, believe me! By acting on what God shows you and moving toward Him in a surrendered life you will be entering into the experience of REVIVAL. It may come as a slow build or it may come suddenly. For me, it came as mini breakthroughs over a period of time culminating in a SUDDEN EXPLOSIVE EXPERIENCE of the life and presence of God! Trust me, you want this!

All that to say, ever since this happened in my life I’ve been on a great spiritual adventure. I’ve been asking God to providentially order my steps and He keeps doing exactly that, causing me to wind up in unexpected places where awesome things are happening!

Well, Tuesday morning at 10 AM was one of those times. I ended up in a tiny town, at a tiny church, in a tiny room with 6 people (including myself). I’d never been there before, I went because God told me to go. I found out there was going to be a prayer meeting and I felt God telling me to be there. It was just a few people in an old messy room and it sure didn’t look like much. I walked in, sat down, closed my eyes AND THE POWER OF GOD FELL. There was no warm up, no hype, no need to stir anything up- GOD CAME DOWN.

“When You did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence.” -Isaiah 64:3

That’s what it was like! Immediately in the manifest presence of God! We went on for 2 1/2 hours in prayer and it seemed like a couple minutes! It was a violent sort of thing, a peaceful calm, and glourious light all wrapped up in one. It was heaven on earth. That’s what we want, right? HEAVEN ON EARTH. His will being done down here. His power and presence DOWN HERE WHERE WE LIVE, not just in heaven! And that’s what was happening. Not just for 2 1/2 hours, but the entire day afterwards until I laid my head on my pillow! The glory of God fell and it remained on me the entire day! I’m just giving the overview, the details are even better! God showed Himself and answered prayer. I took note of the faces of those in that room. They were different leaving than arriving! They glowed like the face of Moses AFTER HE’D BEEN IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD and they looked like different people!

“And the people of Israel would see the radiant glow of his face. So he would put the veil over his face until he returned to speak with the LORD.” -Exodus 34:35

In a tiny town, at a tiny church, in a tiny room with 6 people GOD SHOWED UP! Never forget Jesus was born in a barn. God’s trying to tell us something there. He didn’t put Jesus up at the 5 star “Hotel Bethlehem”!

“And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” -Luke 2:7

So Jesus is out there in this barn. It’s not much! It’s cold and smelly. And the SON OF GOD showed up there! Okay, that’s the first place He showed up when He came to this earth. Do you see that? He comes out of the womb into this world and that poor stinking barn is the FIRST PLACE HE SHOWS UP. Don’t ever forget that. Jesus is NOT like us. He shows up in places we personally don’t like to be in, and often times it is in those very places where THE GLORY IS REVEALED!

“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”-Luke 2:13

What a sight it must have been! Glory to God!
