Welcome to Teshuvah, Tishri 2 Day 31 of 40 Days of Teshuvah
Thank you Lord
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.
- Within families
- 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
