I have waited and waited and waited some more…

Updated: 4 days ago

A friend and co-worker sent this to me more than a year ago. I believed then that it was "of the Lord", but somehow wasn't sure what to do with it. Perhaps it wasn't the right time.

Just now I sensed for a number of reasons that it was right time to release this.

Please read, weigh, share.

"Do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22

To the Church – the Body of Christ:

You have cried and cried out to me, pleading for revival: “We need revival, look at our land we need revival – Oh Lord send revival - why have we waited so long? Send revival now…”

And the Lord says, “I am waiting for you, my beloved one. I am waiting for you! Open your eyes and your heart and feel my heart – and see and feel what I see and feel.

“Do you not perceive it? Your land is desecrated by the shed blood of my little ones, each one I made in my image. But you have stood by in silence and allowed yourselves to be deceived by the enemy, who always seeks to kill and destroy.

“Open your eyes, open your hearts – I am waiting for you to turn to me in true repentance.

“While your land is desecrated by this shed blood, it is also desecrated by your indifference, your apathy, your hardness of heart for the pinnacle of my creation - my little ones, my passion!

“How can I send revival, when there is no repentance for this horrendous destruction of life in your land? Instead, I am met with your silence and your agreement with the enemy – you side with the world, the flesh and the devil.

“Do you think I don’t see? I see into your hearts; I see your compromise; I see your pride; I see your fear.

“Don’t you know who I am?

“I am the Lord who grieves over you, who sees the poverty of your spirits, who longs for you to turn to me in repentance, to receive my Spirit of power to overcome all the schemes of the enemy – so that you stand as my sons and daughters, that you stand in the place of your inheritance: shining forth to those in darkness and declaring my truth, my grace, my love, my righteousness and justice with my forgiveness through my only begotten son, Jesus, to those caught in satan’s snare.

“Yet I have my remnant: those who have heard my cry and they now cry out to you.

“Oh my beloved I am waiting for you, I am waiting for you. I long to send revival, the refreshing rains of my Spirit upon you. My heart longs for you.

“How much longer do I have to wait?”
