1. Underground Revival
By Ron McGatlin
Revival As Never Before Seen
A deep rumbling which may become the greatest revival ever has begun DEEP below the surface of natural life in the Spirit realm. This underground revival is taking place deep in the hearts of kingdom believers that have left the confines of natural life to enter the supernatural realms of Spirit God. The Spirit realm in which the pure holy LOVE of God consumes, cleanses and makes new the sons and daughters of God into the image and likeness of God to reign as the Body and Bride of Christ upon the earth.
The term “revival” must take on a fresh new meaning to reflect this fresh deeper LOVE life that is so powerful that it dissolves everything that is not of God. Literally evil and all it has built is dissolved in the fire of the glory of the pure holy love of God. Revivals of the past have been said by some to be shallow and therefore short lived. The underground-revival may be mostly unseen. Yet the results of it will indeed be earth shaking and world changing.
Deep in the Spirit, intimate marriage-like love connections are being formed that make us one with God in Christ Jesus. All mixture is washed away by the overwhelming experience of love joining us together as one with God and with one another.
That which manmade religion sought to accomplish but could never do is being done in the deep underground revival. The kingdom life of God in Christ is now coming forth from beneath the surface in the depths of the Spirit. God is creating underground a valiant army of many sons and daughters with pure hearts equipped with the supernatural love, power and wisdom of the Spirit of Christ Jesus abiding within them.
The pure love and union with God is forming His people into oneness with Christ Jesus. “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.” Romans 12:5. The many mature sons and daughters of God in Christ Jesus are becoming one Spirit and members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. (Ephesians 5:30-32). God has been waiting for this pure holy seed of the kingdom to be formed to replenish the earth with the reality of the ways and rule of heaven on earth.
The great shaking and the fire of God on the earth that destroys all that is not of God had to wait for the existence of the pure holy sons and daughters of God that are now being formed outside the camp of religion in a deep intimate relationship with God. God has been preparing a people to lift up a standard and carry the seed of the kingdom into the entire world. Without this core of pure humble holy men and women, God would not bring the cleansing fire and shaking to prepare the earth for the re seeding of the world with the kingdom of heaven. (Isaiah Chapter 2)
God is not willing that any should perish. All that will come to Him shall be saved. Those made righteous by the blood of Christ Jesus will be saved. The greatest season of people coming to the real love and power of God that the world has ever known is just ahead of us. Multitudes are coming by the Spirit. They are not coming to join a church or any religious organization. They are coming forth to become one with Christ Jesus in the kingdom of heaven on earth.
There is absolutely nothing religious about any of this time of great harvest. Many will come from the East and the West to the Spirit Mountain of the glory of God arising from the ashes of the past to the glory of God. (Isaiah chapter 2). The Spirit of God and holy angels moving upon the people will bring instant transformation of many into pure holy people of God filled with the love and life of God. The loss of the old world and all that was in it will not even be a thought in the minds of the multitudes who were dead and now live to praise God in perfect peace and harmony on earth as it is in heaven.
Hidden by the Spirit of God from the fallen world yet in plain sight, the mostly unseen revival will not have the showy worldly programing demonstrated in recent past revivals. Nor will it have the strong emotional appeals to miss hell fire and go to heaven of the earlier revivals. These and other historical moves of God were awesome and did the early preparation work of turning a portion of the world from natural mindedness to Spirit life in and with God.
The faith of God in Christ abiding in His people of this age will release the ultimate power of God from heaven on earth. The cloud and fire of the glory of God is beyond natural imagination. The underground rumblings will become a mighty roar of power beyond description. There will be no need for any worldly antics or programs to draw or coheres people. The world changing power of the love and glory of God will be so gloriously overpowering in such an awe filled presence of the majesty of God that no man can stand. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear. Every knee shall bow. Some will curse God and cry out for the mountains to fall upon them to cover them from the presence of God.
All who will turn to God with their whole hearts will be saved to abide in God and replenish the earth with the love, righteousness, peace and joy of the Lord and so shall we ever be with the Lord. The greatest harvest of all time is without any persuasive works of man. Evangelism is simply informing and directing desperate people toward Jesus in this harvest time underground revival.
Perfect peace does not come from a serene environment and circumstances. Perfect peace only comes in becoming one with God of all creation, the all-knowing, all-seeing, and all-powerful God of all. In God through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit perfect love fills us with all life and all power which provides perfect peace and ultimate joy at all times completely apart from any evil circumstances or events in this world. All things are possible and love is unending, it never runs out.
In this current season, the people of the world, including many Christians, have slipped away from God and His ways so far that anyone filled with the life of God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit appears to be crazy or deranged to them. At the same time the people have grown to have great tolerance for the ways of evil darkness.
True Spirit of God reality may appear as insanity to the natural thinking secular minded people of the world and as heresy to the religious minded pharisaical teachers. However, to the powers of darkness it is a totally destructive force that produces debilitating fear of annihilation. Yet, to the sons and daughters of God it is serene peace, consuming love and unlimited power to do the will of God.
Marvelous Spirit reality is seen as madness to the worldly and tyrannous to the devil, but it is a sound mind to the sons of God. A sound mind comes from God. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
The deep underground rumbling is the kingdom of God and His way coming forth transforming the world to as it is in heaven. Thank You Jesus!
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32.
2. How To Remove The Scariness From 'The Day Of Reckoning'
By JD King
When brought into the life of the Kingdom of God, men and women are positioned for incredible realities. What stands before them is a whole new realm of existence. Its beauty and glory are unfathomable.
However, as this incredible freedom is being discharged, a corresponding response is necessitated. Actions must be made in light of this astounding revelation. Each of us has been invited into a magnificent interchange.
The sons and daughters of the Most High need to fill their imagination with the endless possibilities of the Father. We cannot live or even think like we did in the past. As God's designs are intentionally embraced, environments and cultures are utterly transformed.
When believers immerse themselves in the declarations of God, it reorders things. As we intentionally speak what God speaks, we’re freed from wicked entanglements. When we prophetically affirm our righteous destiny, sin envelopes us no more.
There is an astounding biblical passage that speaks to all of this. It firmly declares, “Reckon yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11).
The term "reckon" is utilized in the field of accounting. It is often used to describe the process of calculations, the settling of accounts, and even determinations made according to a 'fixed basis.' Many of the dynamics that take place in the financial realm also transpire in the spiritual.
In this 'day of reckoning,' God is calling us to advance as if the debt is already paid. We are to proceed as if the ugliness and unrest in the world have no claim on our lives. We reckon ourselves dead to sin and full of the glory of Jesus.
The secret to victory all comes down to the reckoning.

3. Getting to Know Holy Spirit
By Nathan Hall
Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit of God presents Himself in different ways. It's not the same for each individual. I would say that it is a part of the beauty of the Lord. There is an individuality to the Spirit. I told Him that I needed my own personal experiences with Him. I needed to feel Him for myself.
To this point, I had never knowingly felt the Holy Spirit. I have had a general knowing about things, like what is right in certain situations. I have even known things that He wants. But I have never before had a true one on one experience with Him in which I was aware of His presence in me.
Tonight I sat in my bedroom. And I was thinking that I am going to have that experience with Him. I know He is inside me. I have heard His voice from time to time for the better part of six years. But, I knew there was more to be had. The moment I sat down and got quiet, there He was, His voice, which I crave. This was the dialogue that I had with Him…
Holy Spirit: Do you feel that? (I knew He was talking about Himself)
Me: No, I don't.
Holy Spirit: Where are you focusing?
Me: All around me, I'm trying to feel you around me.
Holy Spirit: Well stop, feel inside, and feel deep. Do you feel that? That calmness, that peaceful and gentle feeling?
Me: Yes I do.
Holy Spirit: Well there I am. That's how I present in you.
Matthew 7:7 NIV
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
Of course that is how I would come to recognize Him. I asked, and then there He was. It was something I already had, and I just didn't know what it was. We conversed for a little while longer. I asked Him some questions, questions about other people, how they feel Him. I expressed that when other people talked about feeling him, my mind went to a physical touch, like on the skin, like what you would have with another person. He went on to say that He presents himself differently with each person. He said there are others who feel Him in a very similar way to the way I feel Him, the way I recognize Him. But of course others are different in how they experience Him.
Then I saw a vision. There was darkness all around, it was night time. The Holy Spirit was there. He was in a cave like enclosure, which was a representation of my heart. He was crouched down over a fire, blowing on it, but containing it in His hands at the same time He was growing and strengthening the fire. Then He said these words to me, “I am tending to this fire, making sure it is good and strong before I release it.”
Then He went on to say that He was doing this in the hearts of a lot of people. He showed me a picture of Him tending to a whole bunch of tiny flames, and then He showed me what will happen when He stands up and pulls His hands away. They will all explode into one raging fire. He is bringing the Body of Christ back to life.
Now I want to highlight a few things. The last writing I wrote, I talked about how I was so worried about where I was spiritually. So inside I had been running around like a crazy person, thinking, I'm going to miss it, and my life isn't going to amount to anything. And not a week after the Lord tells me just to be His son, BOOM, movement. That's all it takes. Get the eyes off the self, and suddenly, He can move, because He is free.
The Lord, Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit has been moving a lot in my life regarding the works of the enemy. I recognize now all my fears and doubts about missing this and that, came from the enemy. And now I am learning to speak against those lies.
1 Peter 5:8-9 NIV
“8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NIV
“4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
Be aware of the lies that come from every direction in your life. The Holy Spirit is in you, if you have received Christ Jesus as your personal savior and Lord. He is always there. So don't think for a second that He isn't. Don't think for a second that your life won't amount to anything. Don't think for a second that you aren't loved, or fall into the trap of thinking, why would God love me. And don't think for a second that you are a sinner. Jesus died on the cross so that we would be dead to sin.
1 Corinthians 3:16 NIV
“Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
1 Peter 2:24 NIV
"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; "by his wounds you have been healed."
We are children of God. Nothing can take that away from us. So remember, whatever thoughts cross your mind, you are a loved child of God.
