Revival

The sweaty preacher 
shouts to the church,
“Revival is what 
we need at first,
When the Spirit comes
all will be well,
So we can all 
come out of our shell.

We need to pray harder 
to ‘send the rain’
To put out the fire 
and all the world’s pain,
‘Revival’ ! ‘revival’ !
Is what we need”,
While the Lord’s sheep
Graze chicken feed.

But the Lord’s revival
Is not what they think
It’s not a revival of
Pentecostal spirit,
Understand covenant
As shown in the bible
Then you will grasp
The Lord’s revival.

It’s all about Israel
And their unbelief,
that their hedges were broken 
By Gentile beasts,
And the cry to restore
By those of belief:
Those of the remnant
Who didn’t bow their knee.

But the God of covenant 
Answered their prayer,
In a different way
Most don’t seem aware,
Now all are welcome
Through Jesus’s blood,
The revival arrived
By the Kingdom of God.

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth! Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, Stir up Your strength, And come and save us! Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry Against the prayer of Your people? You have fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in great measure. You have made us a strife to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves. Restore us, O God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! You have brought a vine out of Egypt; You have cast out the nations, and planted it. You prepared room for it, And caused it to take deep root, And it filled the land. The hills were covered with its shadow, And the mighty cedars with its boughs. She sent out her boughs to the Sea, And her branches to the River. Why have You broken down her hedges, So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit? The boar out of the woods uproots it, And the wild beast of the field devours it. Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts; Look down from heaven and see, And visit this vine And the vineyard which Your right hand has planted, And the branch that You made strong for Yourself. It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself. Then we will not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name. Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! (‭Psalms‬ ‭80‬:‭1-19‬ NKJV) [written by Asaph]

As He says also in Hosea: “I will call them My people, who were not My people, And her beloved, who was not beloved.” “And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ There they shall be called sons of the living God.” Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, The remnant will be saved. For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness, Because the LORD will make a short work upon the earth.” (‭Romans‬ ‭9‬:‭25-28‬ NKJV)

For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, (‭Romans‬ ‭11‬:‭16-17‬ NKJV)

And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. (‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭16‬ NKJV)

for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (‭Romans‬ ‭14‬:‭17‬ NKJV)

Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” (‭Luke‬ ‭17‬:‭20-21‬ NKJV)
