1. A continuing after interruption; a renewal.
2. A restoration to use, acceptance, activity,
or vigor; a revival.
2 Cor 5:19-20 AMP It was God [personally
present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the
world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor).
20 So we are Christ's ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ's personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.
Rev 22:2 AMP Through the middle of the broadway of the city; also, on either side of the river was the tree of life with its Twelve varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing and the restoration of the nations. [Gen 2:9.]
“ My love for you is more than you can imagine. You have no idea how much I love you and care for you, even though you feel so alone sometimes in this world. Remember that your HOME is not here in this world but in the next.
Remember that there is nothing that can separate you from My love and kindness.
Take the way less traveled and come with ME and dine with Me on a feast of bread and new wine. I have so much to show you, and I’m releaseing gracelets of increase of divine revelation so that you will finally see more clearly the POWER of My love and all that I did for you. You will understand more fully all it is that you are , and all that I AM to you.
Humanism has seen it’s day. There is and will be a resurgency of TRUTH in the inner man of mankind. What was so lauded will no longer be applauded !
What seemed good in the eyes of many will now take the lower step to what I reveal through My friends. I have many servants, but I don’t have that many friends. Friends take time for you, to listen to what you have to say.
Friends spend time with you when no one else will. Friends overlook a lot of things, and continue to love you even when you’re annoying, or they think you have done the wrong thing. Friends take time with you, and I am sorely lacking those who will take time to listen and rest in My arms of love.
There are so many distractions to this world, and soon those “distractions” and the perils of tyrants and terrorists will take more of your time, so I’m once again admonishing you to prepare your hearts for CHANGE and to come away with ME and talk to ME, and get MY perspective on things. Don’t delay to back off from BUSYNESS ! What will it matter in the day you stand before ME how well you kept your house ? What will it matter in that day if you have not fed the poor, clothed the naked, or taken in the homeless, and helped others ? Many things have become just about YOU. But I want you to be concerned for the others I put before you. Will you take time for them ? Will you take one person who is strange to you, and just love that one ? The reason they may seem strange is that they are so rejected.
Will you lay down your life for at least ONE other ? If every Christian did that, it would exponentially grow till the whole world was saved. If each person would befriend ONE STRANGER, imagine what could happen ? One by one pour yourself into people and it will be A LOT accomplished ! I stopped for the one. For the Samaritan woman at the well, for the woman caught in adultery, for Zaccheus the taxcollector and thief. Will you make an impact on ONE? Will you pour yourself out on ONE ? Many will get much more if they will just be faithful with the few I’ve given you.
Everyone wants a “big ministry”. But I just want you to learn to LOVE, even when people are hard to love. Will you not abandon the one ? I realize some will refuse your love. That’s ok, and that is their problem, and you are not responsible for those who refuse it. But just REACH OUT ! DO SOMETHING to bless one other person. Lay down all selfish ambition and be willing to do the hidden things that matter. Are you willing to pray all night for one person ? Are you willing to fast a week for someone to be delivered ? Have you ever laid yourself down for the one, doing all you could do to help them with breaking the chains on them ? Will you EXTEND yourself for one friend ? Will you do it for a family member ? That son that is prodigal – will you fast for him for a week ? Will you speak scriptures over him, so that he can get free ? Will you let go of that which is not eternally important to take hold of what is eternally important ?
For I AM going to bring forth a RESURGENCY of power and transformation that this world has not seen in thousands of years ! I am REVITALIZING and REFRESHING and I am going to astound the critics and skeptics with startling changes that will make them shake in their boots ! They will bow down and know that I have loved you ! REACH OUT and I will REACH DOWN!
RE-ESTABLISH the ancient foundations and there will be a RESURGENCY of My power as you have not seen before ! WALK IN LOVE and you will walk in power ! Love that is not just words, but actions will get My attention.
Acts 1:6-9 AMP
6 So when they were assembled, they asked Him, Lord, is this the time when You will reestablish the kingdom and restore it to Israel?
7 He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority and personal power.
8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.
9 And when He had said this, even as they were looking [at Him], He was caught up, and a cloud received and carried Him away out of their sight.
