Matt SorgerOn Saturday, March 6, during a time of worship, the Lord spoke to my heart. I was caught up in His presence when the voice of God spoke these three things to me:
  1. Church gatherings are about to experience a fresh wind of God's Spirit as whole meetings will be caught up in His manifest presence.
  2. Mantles are soon to be released over the church, empowering people to do extraordinary things for the kingdom of God. Those who have been in a place of hiding and preparation are about to come forth in power.
  3. The voice of the Lord will be heard not only from the pulpit, through anointed preaching and teaching, but also from the pews. A fresh anointing for the corporate prophetic utterance is about to be revived. God's voice will be heard through His people.

As I pondered these three revelations, the Lord began to speak to my heart about a shift that is coming in our mindsets concerning revival. God is transitioning the church from a "revival culture" to a "resurrection power culture."

A culture is a set of beliefs, values, practices, mindsets, actions, and behaviors practiced and esteemed by a group of people. Culture marks and characterizes your way of life. But before you can understand the difference between revival culture and resurrection power culture, you need to be aware of the spiritual season we are entering.

Prophetically, God is bringing His people into the time of the "Third Day." I want to explain to you what this means and how it will impact your life in this next season.

Hosea the prophet talks about the process of transitioning from the First to the Second to the Third Day and what each day signifies. Hosea's prophecy can apply on multiple levels, as prophecy often does. It can apply to your personal journey in God as well as to the corporate journey and process of God's people.

Hosea 6:1-2 says, "Come and let us return to the Lord, for He has torn so that He may heal us; He has stricken so that He may bind us up. After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life); on the third day He will raise us up that we may live before Him" [Is. 26:19; Ezek. 37:1-10] (The Amplified Bible).

DAY ONE

"Come and let us return to the Lord."

The first day is marked by a turning to the Lord. It is all about rending our hearts and fully repenting of everything that grieves God's heart in our lives.

Acts 3:19 declares, "So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord."

To repent means to "change your mind and purpose." It means to change your way of thinking and what motivates you. Repentance causes us to turn around and walk in the exact opposite direction of our sin, back toward God.

This complete turning toward God causes all our sins to be cleansed and removed and releases a fresh wind of God's presence in our lives. His refreshing then brings restoration from the effects of sin. True repentance brings not only a change of mind and motive but also a change in behavior. Repentance brings true inner change that produces outward transformation.

DAY TWO

"After two days He will revive us (quicken us, give us life)"

Day Two is marked by revival. Revival means "to quicken and give life," to bring something that is dead or dying back to life again. Revival is for the church. Revival brings an awakening to the hearts of God's people. Revival causes us to be filled with the fresh life of God. It stirs us from spiritual complacency and apathy and ignites a zeal in our hearts for the things of God. It creates a passion in us for intimacy with God and for the things that move His heart, such as the lost.
