On December 21, 2020, my dad had a dream that he shared with me. I immediately knew it was a word from God about this next year.
This dream gives us a message that the revival we are looking for is not in the big arena gatherings, but rather, revival will be discovered in the small house groups. This is what Heaven is doing. I have been prophesying this for over a year now since I began to hear it from God. This dream is straight from Heaven and will encourage you for what's ahead.
Dream from My Dad, Rick Vincent, on 12/21/20:
In the dream, my dad was in a large meeting arena along with my husband, Munday. Many people were sitting but not waiting for a service or event. They were just sitting and talking in small groups.
Munday was with him, but busy with other things. He had a briefcase and some other things and he was going around talking to groups individually.
Suddenly, my dad rose up, shouted, "Hallelujah!" and encouraged people saying, "Let's praise Him!" He was then quoting Scriptures in exaltation, like, "In him was life, and that life was the light of men" (John 1:4), and, "Jesus is the way, the truth and the life" (see John 14:6).
Then my dad began to have trouble speaking and went to ask Munday to pray for him. He said a short prayer and did not hesitate. It was something he just did with total, confident authority. (Photo via Unsplash)
After this, my dad could speak again and went on speaking out loud, walking around exclaiming to all! Everyone listened.
My dad continued talking to people before leaving to catch up to Munday as Munday was leaving the arena and heading toward an exit, to get something to eat. He caught him in the stairway outside the exit that was leaving the arena, and they left together.
The arena represents a big event happening, yet there was no big event. There were only small, individual gatherings all over the arena. The symbolism is that the big event IS the small gatherings. Revival will actually be found in the small group gatherings, and not in the way we may think. This is what I have been prophesying since last year, before everything changed and churches were closed...that many would choose to meet in smaller groups.
Some of you may remember my word published by the Elijah List (May 30, 2020) called, "The Time of the Terrace Church Has Come." Weeks after releasing that word, it began to happen. And now we are continuing with that word of meeting outside the Church walls and meeting in small groups and homes. Munday, my husband, does this now, meeting with small Bible study groups we have begun in our city. He oversees the small groups and often checks on them and meets with them.
In the dream, the briefcase represents going to work, the work of the Gospel. Munday visiting each group tells us that he will also show leadership how to do this, like an apostle. Munday has and will lead others in the dynamics and details of how to start up a small group in their local community.
In the dream, the praise and proclamation coming forth is the sound that will erupt from Earth and Heaven, as this fire catches and spreads throughout the whole world. The Scriptures proclaimed in the dream were focused solely on Jesus. So, too, shall these groups focus on the Son of God and praise Him, lifting Him up for all to see. They will have a message of the simple Gospel. It's time to praise and proclaim the simple Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified!
My dad losing his voice represents those who have lost their voice in this season, or those who never had a voice, who will be given one in the new wineskin of the "small group" era. A small setting allows every person to not only give what they have, but receive as well. This is how God meant it to be...not one left behind...everyone feeling valued and seen by others...people leaving the group meeting feeling truly fed. The lack of this is why we have seen so many hurt and leaving the Church. They have had a need to be needed, but were often never given the chance. I want to see this change. (Photo via Flickr)
You Are Revival!
It's time to exit the arena of the "only big meetings matter" mentality. I love them, and we should continue to gather together in praise and worship, but without the small mentoring gatherings, people are unfulfilled. There are so many broken people out there that do need us. We are more than just big meetings; we are the light of the world! It's time to shine that light together! The Church must walk in unity like never before.
Saints, it's time to shift our idea of church and revival. We must enter into the Kingdom mindset with every community activated to take their city. It's time to come together with local Believers and have real fellowship and love of the brethren, being there for one another and those who are broken and poor in our cities. It's time to lay down our lives for the one who laid down His. Revival is here, friend, and YOU ARE IT!
I want us to rise to the occasion that Heaven is extending to us right now, to go into the harvest fields and compel them to come in; find the lost pearls and invite them to gather with you and some friends. Minister to each other, pray for one another, and let the healing begin.
This contagious house fire movement will spread faster than the wind can blow if we will all play our part and stop for the one broken soul who needs Jesus.
I accept this challenge. Will you join with me, friend?
