Revivalists: Don’t Kill the Bride

I had a very stirring prophetic dream last night on April 16th, 2014 that I would like to share with the bride of Christ. 



In the dream, I walked up to a large river where thousands of revivalists had waded out into the center of the current. There was visible fire from heaven that swirled over them and these revivalists were beckoning the masses on the shores to come to them and be baptized. 

Suddenly, the heavens opened up above and the voice of the Father spoke and said, 

“My revivalists, you MUST NOT baptize my followers in the same river that I baptized you in, or you WILL KILL my people!”

As the Father spoke these words,  bodies from the bottom of the riverbed began to surface and  float down stream. Terror fell upon the revivalists and the voice of the Father spoke again and said,

“These are the corpses of my people from past revivals who were baptized in the same river that I baptized my revivalists in.”

As the corpses floated down the river, the masses fled and I began to call to these thousands of revivalists and say, “Let us reason together brothers. Come and let us be taught by the Holy Spirit.”

A gathering took place on the shore as all the revivalists exited the river. They sat down in a large circle and I began to teach them. I said, “The Holy Spirit has two words for us this evening. The first is from John 21 and the second is from Ephesians 5.”

I opened up my  bible and read, 

“So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.”  He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep. (John 21:15-17)

I looked up after reading this passage of Scripture and many of the revivalists began to weep. A spirit of wailing began to fall upon them. I have a hard time even describing it. Many started to cry out to the Father and say, “I’m so sorry Father for beating your people with my words rather than feeding your people with your words. In my zealousness, I now realize that I do not carry your heart for your sheep.”

I stood up again and read the next passage of Scripture as instructed by the Holy Spirit from Ephesians 5:28-30. I read, 

“So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself;  for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,  because we are members of His body.”

Right as I finished reading this passage of Scripture, several of the revivalists stood up in a fit of rage and said, “Jesus cherishes His bride? Have you seen her? She’s a whore!” Many of the others stood in agreement and cheered. 

As I watched all these revivalists cheer at this man’s statement, I began to tremble and shake. I cried out to the Father and said, “Baptize them with the love that you have for your Bride so that they will never be and minister the same again.” 

At the sound of my voice, a thick cloud descended upon us and the glory of the Lord came like I’ve never experienced before. As the Father began to baptize these revivalists with His love for His bride, they began to become undone. Many of them became like little children. The Father was specifically baptizing many of them with His grace and mercy and He kept saying, “As I have done for you, so do for my people.”

As the Father specifically ministered to one revivalist, a screen came down from the heaven and it was playing a recording of  this man’s past. The Father said to Him, “As patient as I was with you for all those years, will you not be patient with my people son?”

When all the revivalists had been baptized in the Father’s love for His bride, they were visibly unrecognizable. They had been given a completely different spirit. As they left the meeting, I began to follow them around the United States on their travels to revival meetings. 

Each one of them would get before large crowds of people and start weeping. They began to declare the Father’s Heart for His bride and to their great amazement, the masses began to repent and turn to the Lord. I read a newspaper article in the dream at that moment where the headline read, ” The Father’s Heart Wins Again” and it was an article by a revivalist talking about his journey and need to stop being angry at the bride and learn how to love them. He said, ” I’ve seen more conversions as I’ve preached the Father’s Heart for His bride than I ever did beating people up over their sin.” I cried as I read this article. Then I awoke. 

I want to issue a trumpet call in this nation to every man or woman that has been given and will be given a platform to speak to the people of God. There is a warning and a blessing being released through this prophetic dream. The warning is to be very careful about what river you decide to baptize people in. There has been a slaughtering taking place in this nation at revival meetings because so many ministers are ministering without the Father’s Heart. We must understand that it is NOT ENOUGH to carry the word of the Lord! The word of the Lord must be released with the Father’s Heart or it will produce condemnation rather than freedom. May this word bring deep conviction and exuberant hope to those that are calling upon the name of the Lord in this hour. 

Let the kingdom come and the Father’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus Name.
