Dear Friend,

Did you know that when God invades the earth, He startles the nations? This is the heart of revival. Past revivals show us waves of repentance and miracles that turn hearts to God en masse, but the days and years leading up to it often don’t reveal that a wild move of God is coming. Look around you right now. The world has seen so much plague and pestilence in the last few years that we may sound like a broken record when we say Revival is Coming; yet, the Bible confirms that even pestilence is an affirmative sign of revival.

Revival: When God Walks In. Image of worshippers before an appearance of the Lion and the Lamb

“God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden. Before Him went pestilence, and fever followed at His feet.

  Habakkuk 3:3-5

When the prophet, Habakkuk, had this vision, things were dire for Israel. However, the prophet who understood the times knew God had only permitted the pestilence and would use it for His purpose. Dear Christian, learn from this. Our wait for revival is not a passive one. It is a time for three things: Intimacy, Empowerment, and Exploits.

Intimacy

Like Habakkuk, it is time to take a position. “Who is on the Lord’s side?” is not a rhetorical question. It is a call to intimacy because intimacy is the standpoint from which you will understand what God is trying to do. Intimacy is the place of open eyes and adjustment. It is where we take the right position and align ourselves critically with the Lord. The opposite is distance, and the result of that is seen in Proverbs 29:18: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he.” My prayer for you today is that God will give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that you may know Him better (Ephesians 1:17).

Empowerment

In Mark 3:14, the Bible shows us that Jesus called the disciples to Himself and then He’d send them out to preach. This order is important—the first call is to intimacy with Jesus before we are sent out. When the disciples gathered in the Upper Room in prayer, they became empowered, receiving courage and boldness to declare the Good News. As we fellowship with and minister to the Lord, empowerment comes from the Holy Spirit because “those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32)”. Today, God is saying to you, “Have I not told you? Be strong and courageous (Joshua 1:9).”

Exploits

Stand firm because after intimacy and empowerment will come exploits, just as it was when the Upper Room was invaded by God. When Jesus was about to leave the earth, He told His disciples not to be afraid of wars, plagues, and pestilence because the end will not come until the gospel of the Kingdom has been preached to all nations (Matthew 24:4-14). Brethren, God is preparing us and building an army that He will use in these critical times to preach the gospel to all nations and do exploits that draw people to Him. 

Dear friend, it is time to position yourself in intimacy so you can be empowered for exploits. God is about to invade the earth, and all eyes will see it.

Shalom,

Watch When God Walks In.

    God bless you sir.
    I pray for more grace in jesus name..
    Sir how can one build an effective intimacy with God?

    • The Eagle says:

      Cultivate a relationship with Him by reading His Word daily to hear from Him. Spend time in prayer speaking to God and also patiently waiting to hear from Him. The Bible says in all your ways, acknowledge Him—it’s a piece of simple but effective advice. Even as you go about day, speak to God as you would a friend and listen for His voice.

  • Iyanuoluwa says:

    When I read this in the midnight (US timing), I felt, God, thank you for making your Son a horn to blow this alarm at a time like this, preserve him.

    And to imagine that the later hours of the day will want to have the Devil publize the glory of God through his (the devil) failed attempt is just enough for me to say “God, her I am” for the invasion of your revival.
    Thank you Minister Dunsin

    We are his sheep and we hear his voice
    The lord had me speak to a group of women on the 1st of Sept. on building intimacy with the holy spirit inorder to be empowered for the kingdom task ahead because an Army is Rising.
    I totally agree with you my brother the season is upon us to be intimate with the holy spirit, receive empowement not for show but for kingdom service to rescue men from hell into the kingdom of our Lord.
    We will shake this world for God.
    All men shall come to the knowledge of Christ….

  • Dean Nawa says:

    You’re a huge blessing to me sir

  • Parvenu Japan says:

    Thank you for sharing this admonition, sir.

    My greatest desire has been to love God and show others how to do the same. It’s been tough because I haven’t been able to build that effective relationship with the Holy Spirit. I find myself rushing through prayer and studying the word, but spending more time on other things like chores, social media, and my days start and end without anything solid with God.

    I don’t have a community to talk to, or people I can confidently approach to teach me how to develop my relationship with God… I’ve been the one trying to work it out through sermons I’ve been taught in church, or listened to through my phone. I don’t want my growth hot today, and cold tomorrow…

    How can I build consistency and discipline?

    • The Eagle says:

      Since you’ve already identified that you rush. Be deliberate about slowing down and staying with Him. Good community is also important, and I pray God nests you in the right place
