"Lord, if you're the same God today, then why is the church not walking in the power, in the anointing that was displayed in Acts, that Jesus died to give us?"
Dr. Kristi Lemley asked God this simple question with no idea where His answer would lead, she tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. Today, she serves as a presbyter within the Assemblies of God and hosts her own podcast, Living in the Light, in addition to writing and speaking.
"I'm passionate about helping people walk out their purpose with the passion and fire of God," she says. And that passion grew out of nothing less than personal revival.
"Revival is God's best for us," she says. "If we're not living in revival, if you look at it, it's like somebody who is dead ... you have to put those heart shocks on them, that defibrillator, to bring them back. That's not God's best for us. And so I had the Lord just begin in my own heart.
"When I experienced revival—the presence of the Lord is so powerful and amazing," she says. "And there's a spiritual awakening, and things in the Spirit just increase when you're in revival. Yes, miracles, signs and wonders are great, but there's also a deeper knowledge and love of the Word and sharing who Jesus is with others—because that's part of our purpose."
