We need a Dunamis Revival! Just like the Day of Pentecost, we need a supernatural outpouring of the Holy Spirit, where the ‘dunamis’ of God which is the power of God is poured out upon all flesh (Acts 2:17-18). When the power of God is manifested, lives are transformed, marriages are healed, the lost are drawn into relationship with God, disciples are made and people are sent on mission.
This is the answer for the present condition of our nation and the decline of the Church. When this revival sweeps over the land, there will be not stopping it as millions of lives are touched by the power of God and begin to flood to discipleship groups, being trained and equipped to be used by God through power evangelism to share His love with all people aroung the world.
Where does the Dunamis Revival begin?
It simply begins in your place of prayer. It starts with you and God. Have you recently felt the calling, the stirring back to your First Love and the place of prayer, rest and meditation? That is the call to the time of preparation for the revival.
It starts through your daily conversation with Him where He shares the secrets and treasures with you from Scripture. It begins when you have yielded and surrendered yourself to Him, and He is molding you into a person He can use for the days ahead.
The place of prayer is where you get to know Him, the lover of your soul. You are so enraptured by His presence that you don’t want to leave. It is here that He speaks to you, showing you His plans. John 16:13 says, ”But when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own authority. But He will speak whatever He hears, and He will tell you things that are to come.”
Most importantly, as the wonderful Holy Spirit talks to you, “He will glorify Me, for He will take what is mine and declare it to you.” As you encounter the Spirit of God in the secret place of intimacy, He will glorify Jesus, and you will be transformed in His presence.
It is exciting! You’re on an adventure. As your relationship with Him grows He starts showing you His plans, and how you are part of it. And the Lord is looking for people who seek Him, as 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord move about on all the earth to strengthen the heart that is completely toward Him.”
As your encounters with Him continue, when your heart is yearning for more of Him, the heavens will open for you. His tangible presence will be with you throughout the course of your day. And you are in fellowship with His Spirit everywhere you go.
You will hunger and thirst for righteousness. You will be hungry for His presence and can’t wait to spend more time with Him. People around you will know something is different and begin to ask you questions. Some may even weep around you as the presence of God is felt by them through you. And you will share God’s love, what He is doing in you, and miracles will breakout where you are and where He sends you.
The Dunamis Revival begins with all of us who are hungry for God. It begins with you and me. If He is calling you to return to Him, to return to the place of prayer, you will not regret it. It is the place for the preparation of what is soon to come. And you will be part of the Dunamis Revival if you seek the face of God now. Start today in the place of prayer.
