How I Was Called to Revival (Part 3 of 3)

When God calls you to do something my advice to you is DO IT!

 

Soon after the Lord asked me to pray over the ‘wells’, I had a phone call from my brother to say that his business was in trouble and could I come and help him. I am/was an accountant, and I worked for my brother three days a week for some years. When I asked the Lord what He wanted of me, I gave up working for my brother, to give the Lord space for Him to use me. Because I loved my brother, I went back to work for him for a short time, but at the end of my time with him I did not return to the work God had given me to do. I do not remember any particular reason why I ignored God’s instructions, but the fact is I did.

It was about four years later that I got a phone call from one of our leading intercessors, who knew what God had asked me to do, asking me where the ‘wells’ were in the nation. I suppose the Lord had told her to contact me, to give me a kick up the… Well it worked. As soon as I heard her question, I was filled with remorse and from that second I have been trying to complete the task God has given me.

To be honest, I am fed up doing the research. However, had I obeyed God in the first place, the research would all be over by now!

The next stage in my journey was to find out what God wanted me to do. In 2001 He told me to fast for 40 days and then I had a dream where the Lord told me that I would soon find out what my ministry was to be. A couple of weeks later I went to the US for an Intercessors’ conference and while there the Lord spoke to me about six times (I guess He knew that I needed to be sure that it was Him speaking), in different ways, that He wanted me to pray over the Spiritual Wells of the UK.

The only place of significance I really knew in the UK was Whitby. I knew that we had a chance at the Synod of 664 to become a born again nation, but instead we became a Catholic vassal of Rome. I ignored the fact that Whitby was a stronghold and not a well and went up there to pray over it. On the way back I asked the Lord where else I should go to, but soon realised that I had to do research to find this out. My job was to research our Christian history to discover where God had poured out in the past, and to pray open the Wells of Revival.

So why am I posting stuff about ‘revival’? I suppose my journey towards revival began soon after I became a Christian, twenty-five years ago. I had a love of history and I was soon being stirred up through reading the biographies of some of our great Christian heroes; such as Wesley, Whitefield, Wilberfoce, John Newton, Booth etc. The first biographies I read were by John Pollock.

My next landmark was Toronto in 1994. I knew that there was something missing in my faith and as soon as I came across the supernatural I knew that was what had been missing. Even though my church closed down its ‘Toronto’ meetings, I knew I needed to continue, so I went to many conferences abroad and on several mission trips; wanting more of God, wanting to see revival.
