I don't want to praise the message that was sent out 'higher than I ought'. Because I've already made that error once.
God was telling me 2 days before 'something powerful is going to happen, something that you wont be exspecting'.
And that was truly fulfilled.
It's been a while since I spoke a message from God. I told them what A Revolutionary was, examples of people (MLK, Rosa Parks, Gandhi, Jesus, Peter, Paul), and the outcome.
The message was simple. 'Ordinary people, doing things that they thought that should be normal; then causing it to actually become normal'.
But also, they needed to persist, because PERSUCUTION IS GOING TO COME. Your going against the stream, so it's going to be a rough battle at first but you MUST continue. Keep your eyes on the prize.
Example: The 'cookie man', some of you might be saying 'who is the cookie man', but I'm speaking about the person who actually dunk the chocolate chip cookie into the milk, no1 knows his name, i bet people thought he was crazy. but now, EVERYONE does it, without thinking about it.
Normal! (This was fed by the title of Finney's idea of revival "It's not a miracle to have a Revival, but normal" (paraphrase))
One brother said "Josh, your message was straight prophetic, God has been dealing with my heart about being a Revolutionary throughout the entire summer."
I've met with that guy like 6 times with the past month, I NEVER KNEW THAT!! Praise God!
He also said "I haven't felt like this in a while".
I think we all left, spiritually charged to do something.
Something is turning. (In the spiritual realm, like it's time that we begin 'destroying the works of the devil')
3 student leaders showed up, also a youth pastor. and me. 5 people and the Holy Spirit. Beautiful. I wasn't the only one who spoke but opened it up to others. Blessings from heaven!
I can't put it in words, but I felt as if, 'its soon time, to give them the command to "Go, charge, take YOUR SCHOOL back for Christ"'.
Oh! How that was like 10 times my exspectations!
**On the natural side, it was the FIRST of many future meetings. we started an hour late, but still ended on time :-P God is good.**
Please keep me in prayer because of fustration with time. Oh How I wish I could be in two places at once! (I can, but i have no faith for it :-? )
Over all, God showed up, powerfully. Each had a different talent, but God ministered to each of us. It blows my mind how "I" can speak to them. Urban community, black/hip-hop/rap, and I get to speak. Ha! God is truly full of Grace.
