Awakening is when a mans soul arises to a new found revelation, truth awakens his mind, the Spirit awakens his zeal, new fire arises in his life just as the sun arises in the morning haze. A new day begins. This new beginning is when he encounters the REVELATION of the God/man Jesus the Christ.
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. (Acts 9:1-7).
Awakening is not having a great meeting, Awakening is not your church having great meetings, awakening is not folks being slain in the spirit, although all these things be great, awakening is A REVELATION OF JESUS himself first!
Your New day does not start with clocks and calendars but with REVELATION and TRUTH A new dawn arises in your heart when you seek TRUTH in person, because thats what Jesus is Truth in person. When TRUTH becomes known, Jesus visits you!
3 REVELATIONS TO EXPERIENCE your AWAKENING
1.The REVELATION OF JESUS
Jesus came to Saul. He said “Lord” he knew him only as “Lord” he wasn’t Saul’s Lord bit he knew about The Lord, The Lord God. He did not know him personally because he had no revelation of his name. He said who are you LORD, then the LORD said I AM JESUS. from that moment on Sauls life took on REVELATION. Revelation of Mission, Revelation of Jesus, Revelation of the gospel. Saul knew the power of TRANSFORMATION. he taught,
2.The REVELATION of MISSION
Isaiah too saw the LORD. “For mine yes have seen the Lord of hosts…Also I heard a voice saying of the LORD saying whom shall send and who will for us.Then said I Lord send me” (Isaiah 1:6-8). Isaiah like Paul saw Jesus, Jesus appeared to them the result A revelation of their lives mission. Pastor here is the key to folks being active in global missions. First Divine ENCOUNTER with Jesus then a divine sending Forth in his name as a witness of his appearance. We must meet Jesus. search him in the scriptures read what Isaiah said about the One true God and his name. revelation with comments JESUS will appear to you and you’ll have knowledge of your mission and your live will be changed.
3.The REVELATION of the GOSPEL
Why do folks preach an easy believism asking Jesus into their heart gospel when there is no evidence of any one saved on the bible basking Jesus into their heart. The answer they have not met Jesus.
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead (EPH 1:15-20)
God open my eyes that…. I may know…. the hope of my calling
God open mine eyes that…. I may Know… the glory, which is mine inheritance
God open mine eyes that…. I may know… the exceeding greatness of your power..to me, us who believe
God open mine eyes that… I may know… This power that raised you from the dead, this gospel of the death burial and resurrection this true gospel that has power, which must live in me.
There in no other gospel read 1 Cor 15:1… Pauls gospel, the death burial and resurrection of Jesus is the gospel that became MY GOSPEL.. (Rom 2:16 Ro 16;26) Paul preached a resurrection according to “my gospel” “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to “my gospel” (2 Tim 2:8).
Pauls mission was to make All men see.. This gospel.. That which was the gospel of Jesus (John 3:5) had become his! His gospel. DIVINE OWNERSHIP. Is it yours.. too? No wonder Paul was fanatical about his mission..
“If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward…to make all men “see” what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ” – Ephesian 3:2-9
When man makes the gospel of Jesus his gospel then the mission of Jesus became his mission!
PRAY: JESUS, If you would visit me through your word I shall Know YOU and You’re exceeding power (which is his gospel). (Ro 1:16). This is a DIVINE KEY. The Power we need today is HIS GOSPEL. the gospel the apostles preached. “God I want what you have, you gospel must be my gospel!” There is no power in todays easy believsm asking Jesus into your heart say a prayer after me gospel.
The exceeding power is in Paul’s gospel the death burial and resurrection gospel. When man gets this gospel he too experiences what Jesus experienced and what Peter experienced and what Paul experienced a death burial and resurrection to thats why we are WITNESSES.. You can say “it happened to me. I am a witness of the death burial and resurrection of Jesus because it happened to me and in me!”
Lord I don’t want fake power. I want it like Peter and Paul had it. If I see YOU then I shall be like you. God open mine understanding today of your name so I can preach your name to the gentiles like Paul. GIVE ME A REVELATION OF YOUR NAME JESUS. So I can have Paul’s mission, Pauls revelation and Pauls passion.
