Although the retreat is over, Holy Spirit keeps burning my spirit with a conviction: He will continue all the divine things He has planted in the participants until Indonesia is full of His glory.
Philippians 1:6 (NASB) For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
1. The Spirit of Prayer will keep burning and spreading
Indeed, the dimension of fervent prayer (Jam 5:16) is not something ordinary for current churches to do. But that’s what God revealed to us; prayers full of spirit intensity, enthusiasm, and passion which are able to influence the spiritual atmosphere. That’s the kind of prayer that Holy Spirit is teaching to us.
I believe, the amount of victorious testimonies will increase from God’s people who practice this pattern of fervent prayer. Together with it, God will start to bring churches to manifest this fervent prayer in their daily spiritual activities.
2. Many churches will mutate into a RADAR church
These are the characteristics of a healthy church:
-Rooted to the truth : the majority of its people are rooted in God’s word
-Enthusiastic: having enthusiasm in living life as a believer
-Dynamic: experiencing the dynamics of the Spirit
-Aggressive in realizing the agenda of the Kingdom of Heaven, and
-Responsive: always responsive to the work of the Word and Spirit that is taking place
I believe the time will come when all churches will have RADAR members as the majority (or even all) of their congregation.
3. Believers will become more and more all-out in pursuing after God’s reality and the fulfillment of His plans
I believe, the heart which loves God so much will move the people to become willing to die, to believe Him even when it doesn’t make sense, and willing to let go of everything for him. And the enemy could never distract or quench this heart anymore! In turn, this nature will spread to even more people.
Church will give birth to people who function as motors and pillars of the movement over this nation. God will bring believers to function as the salt and light of this world. Once again, God’s church will capture what is in His heart for Indonesia, and even nations.
4. Believers will keep being conditioned to grow in the power of grace, so God could position them as influential, renown and respected people over their community, city, and even nation
In the 80s, God poured out the spirit of movement and revival. But everyone in the movement was ‘dragged inside’ the church for internal activities, leading to the pause of the movement. During the retreat, however, God pressed the play button once more.
In the past, Spirit outpouring is always tied with healing the sick and casting out demons. But the Spirit outpouring now will bring believers to be transformed and re-configured. Holy Spirit will bring them to manifest Christ in their daily life.
God will activate the power of grace. Whatever the believers couldn’t do, God will train them to be skillful and able. God will bring them up to be influential, renown and respected, so they could guide this nation to live in the ways of truth and obedience!
It’s time for the spirit of revival to burn across the nation! #iLoveGod
