"Your Fiery Trials Are Equipping You for Revival"
Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN

From the Desk of Steve Shultz:

Steve Shultz     I don't think any of us like going through trials, especially really fiery ones! Yet the Bible tells us we can rejoice:

     1 Peter 4:12-13, "Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy."

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†I want you to read through this excellent article from Jo Ellen Stevens on this subject...know this‚ÄĒGod IS equipping you through it all! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Your Fiery Trials Are Equipping You for Revival"
Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN

     Upon arising the other morning, the Lord spoke to me and said, "There is a Credence Clearwater Revival just ahead and is happening now!" He then told me to look these words up and share what He is about to do!

     CREDENCE: Credence means truthfulness, or believability.

     There is a revival of truthfulness coming to America and the world. It is going to be made apparent the difference between the truth tellers and those who only speak from their own hearts. God is going to separate the real from the fake and is doing this in the earth right now!

     There is a great uncovering of the lies that we have been told and some of the truths that we have held dear in our country. He is going to shake all that can be shaken so that which remains will be the unadulterated truth of God's Word, and He is about to show forth who His true prophets are. All institutions are now being shaken so that new foundations will be laid and they will be laid in the truth of God's Word!

     CLEAR WATER: 1: Water made clear or translucent by filtering. 2: Free from pollution or cloudiness.

     God is in the process of clearing the water that is about to flow through His people! He is taking care of business right now, and cleaning us out for such a time as this so that He can have a clean channel to flow through in the days ahead. If you have been going through a lot recently, maybe He has been cleansing things from your heart and mind so that you can be that pure channel of His love and grace to a dying world.

     REVIVAL: Comeback to life; reawaken; a return of strength or importance; restoration to former vigor, activity, or efficiency, after a period of languor, depression, or suspension; quickening; renewal: as, the revival of hope; the revival of one's spirits by good news.

     There is a revival that is about to happen with those who have walked in truth and sought truth and acted in truth. There is about to be a re-establishment of God's truth that will affect the whole world! God is resuscitating the remnant in the Church from what they have been through in this shaking that is going on, and there is an awakening that is coming to the Body of Christ in an even higher dimension. This, in turn, will awaken the world to God's ways and to the His truth, which is the only answer to their problems.

The Hill of the Lord

     Psalm 24:3-6 says, "Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face. Selah."

     These people who have been been cleansed and washed and have allowed the process to happen in their lives; those who are walking in the truth of God's Word, who have pure hearts and clean hands, will ascend unto the hill of the Lord in these days!

A Shaking is Going On

     God spoke to me and said that this "Credence Clearwater Revival" will begin from those who have survived great shakings in their own life.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Isaiah 4:3-6 (NKJV), "And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy‚ÄĒeveryone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, then the Lord will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain."

     There is a shaking going on and it is because He is preparing us for the hill or mountain of the Lord. In Psalm 24:3, the word "hill" means promotion. God is not trying to kill us in the test that we have been through in these shakings, but He has been all about promoting us! Tests bring promotion as they cleanse us, making us ready to be the vessels for the clear, pure water of His Word to flow through.

Going Through a Fiery Trial? Rejoice!

     1 Peter 4:12-13, "Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy."

     Yes, the key to going through these trials is to understand that He is bringing you to a place like Joseph. God took him out of the prison and trials that tried him for years, and finally brought him up to be second in command to Pharaoh. God was all this time getting things out of him so that He would be able to use him during the famine to save even those who put him in bondage!

     Yes, He has been preparing you in the shaking and fiery trials, so that we can be that city set on a hill for such a time as this. So go through this, rejoice in this...He is taking you to this place. He is bringing you to the promotion of the Lord, for such a time as this!

Arise, Shine!
