I was speaking to an elder about my opinion that it SEEMS to me that the good time we have in Gods Presence on Friday nights at the Revival Meetings is directly linked to the hard time I have during the week.
I laughed, he laughed and then he pointed out that (on the Day of Atonement) the priest sacrifices a bull for his own sins and a goat for the congregation.
Lev 16:14-15 Moreover, he shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the [a]mercy seat on the east side; also in front of the [b]mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times. 15 “Then he shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering which is for the people.
In fact he pointed out that the leader sacrifices THREE bulls for himself and just one goat for the people.
That really struck me. Its certainly what I am experiencing. We spend 7 hours together in our Revival Meeting, but I spend far more time than that in prayer and declaration during the week.
Im passing that on to you. If you lead a Revival Meeting your sacrifice (of prayer, declarations of scripture, faith, loosing and binding) during the week will be far greater than the sacrifice of the group at the meeting.
In our group we are blessed that people are seeing their own role and their own destiny in this and they are making their own sacrifices during the week.
It shouldn’t be all about the leader… BUT… throughout the bible God always appointed a leader (Adam, Peter, Abram, Paul, John, King David). But if many people step up and share the burden then the breakthrough will come far quicker.
In time the people in this group will take what is (going to happen) to their communities and it is important that this understanding of multiplication is built into our DNA… our culture.
You build things into the culture/DNA by verbally repeating it, regularly, but not annoyingly. You also build it in by letting people see you do it.
For example if you honour other people for their input, they will also honour other people when it comes time for them to take the good news to their community.
