Intercessory Prayers for Revival


Intercessory prayers
In the 47th chapter of the prophetic book of Ezekiel, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to the Healing Waters and Trees. Let us meditate on verses 1 to 12. There was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east; it was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar (vs.1). The people of God in the body of Christ, the Church have been interceding for revivals. Their prayers with tears flow like water from the temple. The water proceeds from the right side of the temple. This means that the intercessory prayers are in accordance with the will of God. It emanates from the altar of the temple. When the people of God sacrifice their comfort and time to spend time at the feet of God, their prayer emanates from the altar of God. The people of God should come to the House of God and sacrifice their time for intercessory prayers.

Towards the east

The water flows towards the east. Biblically speaking, the east and the west directions are very significant from the point of view of distance (Ps.103: 2). Isaiah says that the Lord would bring the descendants of Israel from the east, and would gather them from the west. (Is.43: 5). Prophetically speaking, the spiritual Israel, the Church, will give birth to a large number of children who would be from the east, and would gather the people of God together from the west. The western nations, who are mostly evangelicals, would be gathered together in the body of Christ and the eastern nations, who are mostly non-evangelicals, would become the descendants of the spiritual Israel. The water from the temple flows towards the east. Since the west has already been watered, the water has to flow towards the east.

Three types of prayer life

The man in the vision of Ezekiel brings Ezekiel to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side (Vs.2). . The prophet is shown as a sign. The man goes out to the east with the line in his hand and measures one thousand cubits, and brings Ezekiel through the waters; the water comes up to his ankles (Vs.3). Firstly, the prayer of the people of God flows like water reaching up to the ankles of the prophet. Secondly, the prayer of the people of God flows like water reaching up to the waist of the prophet. Thirdly, the prayer of the people of God flows like a river that the prophet could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed (Vs.5).
The standard of measurement at one thousand cubits remains the same on all such three experiences of prayer. The Lord has already set the target of one thousand cubits at the initial stage of the ankle deep experience itself. The measurement of one thousand cubits is achieved only at the final stage of the swimming experience of the people of God in their prayer life. One has to reach the prayer stage of the ankle deep experience, then the second prayer stage of the waist deep experience and finally the last prayer stage of the swimming experience. The final stage of intercessory prayer is the travailing prayer – a prayer until the child is born.

Three types of praying Christians

Most of the Christians are merely content with their initial experience of the ankle deep prayer life. They pray for their own needs, for their own churches or pastors and at times for others.
Quite a number of Christians, apart from praying for their own needs, also intercede regularly for others or for their pastors/ministers. They are not like those people who just sing hymns in the churches, say a few prayers, hear sermons, participate in the Holy Communion and then leave their churches on Sundays. But, they also intercede for others. They have thus experienced the waist-deep prayer life.
A very few Christians, who fall under the third category, pray for revivals in the churches and travail in their prayers until “the descendants of the east” are born. These people of God pray day and night and do not give rest to God. They come, lie all night in sackcloth. These very people of God are not mere believers but are priests “who minister before the altar”. They organize or participate in all-night prayer meetings and pray for revivals unceasingly. They humble themselves before God and wear “sack cloth”. They fall before God in their secret chambers and plead God to send revivals to the churches of the world. Their prayers are aggressive so as to move the Hand of God. They plead before God to spare their nation from His wrath. (Joel 13:13-14). The intercessory prayers of this category of Christians cause “a river” which cannot be crossed.


Very many trees

The prophet finds “very many trees” on one side and the other of this river (Vs.7). Due to their intercessory prayers for revival of our churches, “many trees” will spring up. We will see a large number of mighty ministries if we join the third category of prayer warriors. Many apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral and teaching ministries will spring up on the bank of this very river. The river of blessings will flow towards the eastern region. It will go down into the valley of darkness and will set free the captives of the devil (Vs.8).

The Great Sea

The river of the intercessory prayers for revival finally reaches the Great Sea, which means the source of the power of God, and its waters are healed (Vs.8), with the result that God pours out His Spirit on all nations. Our self-centered prayers like “Bless me…my family…my pastor” will never reach the Great Sea of God. God accepts the intercessory prayers being made for the other afflicted people, for the missionaries in the distant nations, for the other members of the body of Christ throughout the world. Such prayers which flow like a river and which bring about revivals in the churches and great blessings in the world are perfect (or healed) and pleasing in the sight of God.
A very great multitude of fish

Why cannot we cause a river to be sprung due to our intercessory prayers? Wherever these waters go, there will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes (Vs.9).
These days, we find our Christian missionaries through their nets catch a few fishes, and that too, after paying a heavy price through their personal lives. If this river goes to their mission fields, there will be a very great multitude of fish; people with incurable diseases “will be healed”; “everybody”, be it a Hindu, a Sikh, a Buddhist, a Jew, a Muslim or a nominal Christian will find eternal life in Christ and “will live”.



Fishermen

Fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many (Vs.10). The fish, which these fishermen will catch in their nets, will be the same as that of the fish of the Great Sea. When the river flows towards the east, the ministers of God will travel from one end of the world to the other end of the world or from the west to the east and bring multitudes to the Kingdom of God.
The fish of the Great Sea means those saints of God who entered glory and are now of the Heaven, the Great Sea of God whence the power of God is released. The new disciples of Christ (whom the fishermen will catch) will share the same glory of the old disciples of Christ who have entered glory. Dear child of God, you can share the same glory in the Heaven of the early Apostles like Peter, Paul, John, etc.

Swamps and marshes

Verse 11 says, “But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt”. The swamps and marshes are tracts of wet, spongy lands. In our midst, there are people like swamps and marshes who are already wet, having once received the power of God. They have received salvation and other spiritual experiences from the Great Sea. Now they do not want any further flow of the river into their lives. They are content with their wet lands and do not want the river to flow into their lands. They have been taught their church doctrines and do not want to move in the direction where the Spirit of God moves. They do not have a vision about the universal body of Christ and about the revival of their churches. They would not get healed in the new move of the Holy Spirit. They try to fetter the Holy Spirit with their church doctrines. However, the Lord will not forsake them but will give over them to salt. The Lord will chasten them through His judgment because He loves them (Pro.3:11-12).

Fruit bearing trees

When the river flows in the wilderness of this world, all kinds of trees will be grown (Vs.12). The wilderness will turn into rivers. There will be all kinds of ministers of God who will bring forth fruits, which can be “used for food”. People of this world will experience greater miracles and greater healings than they experience today. The leaves of these trees will not wither. These ministers will continue to perform their power-filled ministries constantly and will never let up on their work. Their fruit will not fail. The blessings, which flow from their ministries, will be stable. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary of God. They will be like the fruit-bearing trees, which bear fruit every month. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.
The Holy Spirit now exhorts us to pray for revivals in our churches and in our nations. Our prayers should be travailing, continuing and aggressive until the revival breaks out. Will you please take heed to the voice of the Spirit and obey Him today?

WORD OF GOD

Knowing the word of God
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. In the Word of God are hid all the treasures of Wisdom and knowledge. The knowledge of the truth makes wise. It makes wise unto salvation, unto liberty, unto freedom and unto enthronement.
So, God is the source of wisdom and His Word, the divine Wisdom bank. Until you have access to God via His Word, you cannot have access to divine Wisdom.
What is WISDOM?
It is receiving what God says and applying it to your life. According to Matthew 7:24-27, the rain will descend, the wind will blow and the storm will come, of financial disaster, stress, health challenges etc. yet the building will stand! Why ? because the wisdom will lay a strong foundation.
Your Bible is extremely precious and indispensable if you really desire your relationship with God to grow and increase in depth and intimacy.
Pam Farrel, in her book woman of influence, declares that, “Each woman can build her relationship with God by hearing, reading, studying, memorizing and obeying God’s word. Within its pages you will find everything you need for a life of hope and meaning.”
Every Christian has a desperate need for a personal and intimate knowledge of His pure Word.
Kay Arthur says that God gives us a lifetime, which is how long it will take, to mine the treasures of His Word.
How precious is your Bible to you? It is my prayer that by the end of this book you will not only have a better understanding of your Bible, but will have experienced a more intimate relationship with God.
Finding your joy in the Word
Psalm 1:1-3; “Blessed is the man who’s delight is in the Law of the Lord. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruits in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.”
In Psalm 1 we are given a beautiful description of what a person looks like when God’s Word is a joy and delight to him; the kind of person who spends time in the Word. Such a person is like a tree that grows beside streams of water.

The Bible says in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God; the Word was the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation, because in Him all things were created in heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or lordships, or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and unto Him. And the Word became flesh and TABERNACLED (Dwell) among us full of grace and reality.
When you at the Word of God in the book of first John chapter 1:1-4 “ That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched ; this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Jesus- Christ. Our write this to make our joy complete”.
Here we are not only talking about the written word, but we are talking concerning the living word of God, who is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the man who died on the cross so that we may be saved, and remember Apostle Paul is telling us concerning this man that He came to reconcile the world to Himself; I just want to let you know that when you understand this principle of living according to the word of God and apply it in your life things will work for you.
Tell me about the greats in the Kingdom of God, I will show people who understood the principle of the power of God, one thing you should understand is that every time you read the bible there is a new thing which takes place; this is what we called the Rhema or Revelation; and what is Rhema or Revelation? The Revelation is the now word of God or the word which become!
Remember the word of God is the Wisdom of God, why! Remember the wisdom is the application of the knowledge acquired.
Isaiah 55:11 “ …so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it”.
The word of Lord was a technical expression for the prophetic revelation; in this we see that the word represent the command, God has given us the power to command and the thing takes place or to call the things which are invisible to become visible in Jesus name!
It is the word of God that makes you a commander of the supernatural. Therefore no accomplishment is authentic, no miracle, healing, deliverance, etc are genuine, until its has the foundation upon the Word of God. Jesus is the Word which was from the beginning, not only that, but He became the revelation of God the Father in the flesh thus why when you mention the name Jesus the devil is shaking.
People do you know that the word is not this letters; but the real Word of God is the Revelation which the spirit of God will give you out of what you are reading or meditating.
The Word of God is not the letters again; but the Understanding; the Conviction; and Knowledge of what you reading.
John 12:24-26. “ I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life”.
God is all about your death so that His success can be realized through you! This is why the church is having such little impact-there are too many believers who have not yet died to their old nature so that Christ can live fully through them. When believers come to the end of themselves they will lose their lives to Him and live through the power of the Holy Spirit and begin to see the reality of a living gospel that impacts lives, workplaces, cities and nations.
This is the way the Word of God can work in your life, thus why I pray that God will you time to spend in His presence meditating upon His Word.
People who were writing this Bible was are using the Ink to writ and the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
When you confess the book of John 1:14; you are confessing the INDWELLING OF EMMANUEL IN YOUR LIFE.
THE IMPACT OF THE WORD OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE.
Proverbs 4:20-23 “ … My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body. Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”
Psalm 107:20 “…He sent forth his Word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave”.
John 1:14 “…The Word became flesh and made His Dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”.
The word of God has a great impact in the life of a Christian; when the word of God find a place in the heart of a child of God, many things are going to take place.
John 1:1 “in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”.
