As we prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord, we need to understand some principles for end-time revival.
Revival First Starts with Prayer
“If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now Mine eyes shall be open, and Mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-15, KJV)
Angels respond to the prayers of the Ekklesia, the Church of God that has governmental authority from God on the earth. When we pray, Heaven moves and angels of fire are dispatched from the throne room of God. The angels receive the prayers of the people and help to distribute the answers from Heaven back to the earth in the form of fire. These, I believe, are seraphim at work.
Revival comes when the fire of God comes to purify His people, who are ready to live as God has always desired them to live. He comes to bring purity and holiness to the earth. He comes to clean it up. We first cry out in repentance and humility asking God to deal with us.
“When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all God’s people, on the golden altar in front of the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.” (Revelation 8:1-5)
“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the Gospel of God? And, ‘If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?’ So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.” (1 Peter 4:16-19)
We must be willing to let God deal with us. Purity, holiness, and righteousness are character traits of God, and the seraphim and cherubim carry these attributes from His throne to purify His world as He sees fit. In all miracles and healings there is an element of fire that comes forth through His Word. The angels are present when these things happen. Where He is, angels are. They reside with Him. They carry His fire, glory, love, justice, peace, protection, provision, restoration, purification, holiness, and righteousness. They are an extension of Him.
