A Sin Searing Revival

 

We need a sin searing revival

To sweep across our land

A revival that will pierce the hearts

Cause brothers and sisters to band

 

“Sin searing revival”

Come forth now and do not stop

Until our enemies be destroyed

From the bottom to the top

 

Out with all this evil unbelief

The fighting and the stench

It’s time to get real church

The enemy of mankind to lynch

 

I’m praying for a sin searing revival

To sweep across our land

Will you join with me

As we unite in prayer and stand

 

Together in prayer we’ll praise

And thank our Father God

That He not only hears our prayer

But listens and He nods

Saying to His counsel

Do you hear My people’s prayer

Answers coming swiftly

Like Fire from The Masters Chair

 

Jesus is our High Priest

He listens as we pray

So we shall not be silent

Offering heaven words to obey

 

Pray and praise and call again

He is signing prayer requests

God is hearkening to our words

Offers freedom to all who are oppressed

 

Heaven moves when we pray

Our words have power and meaning

We cannot sit and wonder

Which direction God is leaning

 

Jesus said pray and believe

Ask without reserve

Because when we pray

We know that He has heard

 

When heaven hears we know we have

The petitions as we await the arrival * 1John 5:14-15

Because heaven is calling out to us

Now church, it is our time to usher in “sin searing revival!”

A new beginning starts by dying.

In early Morning Prayer, last year I ask God for a sincere revival to hit our hearts and land. As I was praying He interrupted me, and interjected in my spirit; He BOLDLY said, “NO! What you need is a sin searing revival. Yes that is what we need.

And I thought that is exactly what we need. Oh God send us a sin searing revival.

 

When He does this, I realize how changing our confession, and the words, changes every part of what we are asking The Lord for. Then we are indeed praying according to His will. Listening to His heart cuts through the chase. I still pray and desire a sin searing revival.

What does sincere mean? Who decides what is sincere? How do we measure a person’s sincerity? What is the difference between genuine sincerity and an outward appearance of sincerity, with an attempt to deceive?

Sincerity does have a measurement and is seen by others if it is genuine. True sincerity is seen in our actions or should we say by the changing of our actions, brought on by a change of perception in our mind. The word repentance comes from the Greek word metanoia.

According to New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology Zondervan

The Greek word metanoia is not a compound word of meta and noia. Meta means “with or among” but noia is not a Greek word. The Greek word for mind is nous. The two compound words comprising metanoia are meta, “after or with,” and noeo, “to perceive with the mind.” Thus metanoia literally means “after perception with the mind.”

We return after we understand or Teshuvah through seeking understanding of God and ask what does it mean?

Realizing God has a plan and a purpose that we do not perceive and interpret correctly, is the time to die to our overrated thinking system, and confess we do not understand.

Jesus describes perception while teaching his disciples in Matthew 13:13-15

“Therefore I speak to them in parables because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled which says: ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.” For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing and their eyes they have closed. Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.

 

All new beginnings start with dying. As fall changes come we are again reminded that repentance is a beautiful time. Before casting off the leaves a tree pulls the nutrients from the leaf and stores the nutrients in the heart or root system.

Isn’t that what we should do? Take an accounting of the previous year. Take the good stuff we’ve learned, like nutrients into our soul as lessons learned before letting it go. Every circumstance, even the harshest ones, has something good with it. The worst experience can teach us priceless lessons. Like what we do not want, while the sweetest lessons leave us hungering for more.

Is this what Romans 8:28 means? “Now we know that for those who love God all things are working together for good-for those, I mean, whom with deliberate purpose He has called.”

All things, what are all things? Would they include the good and the bad, the bitter and the sweet, the challenging and the easy, the wanted and the unwanted? I believe the answer is yes.

So as we take words and our confession during The Ten Days of Awe I pray we repent and ask God to send us a sincere and genuine SIN SEARING revival. revive us

Hosea 14:2 NLT Bring your confessions, and return to the LORD. Say to him, “Forgive all our sins and graciously receive us, so that we may offer You our praises.

  1. Personally
  2. Within families
  3. Neighborhoods
  4. Cities
  5. Counties
  6. States
  7. And our Nation

Then we will see genuine change. These are perilous times but God has called us to meet with Him during His High Holy Seasons and Mo’edim. He is calling the congregation to appear before Him.

 

Don’t miss your appointment. Teshuvah is my favorite time of the year.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
