I have been hearing the Lord say that California is going to once again be a birthing place for revival. It will be similar to the Jesus People Movement of the 1970s, which was the last known salvation- and healing-based revival in North America.
This is not just for California! What is about to happen will impact the entire world like it has in the past!
The Jesus People Movement in the 1970s was geared toward the rainbow people—those who had a rebellious (negative and judgmental) attitude toward the establishment (government and authority). The Lord got ahold of that group of rebellious hippies and used them to ignite a revival that has forever changed the Church.
God wants to use a new rainbow people. These are the people of many colors and backgrounds who, like the hippies of the 1970s, were rejected and considered unclean by the Church.
The spirit of negativity is ruling our airways once again. The Internet is fueling negativity, causing disagreements and creating an attitude that expects the worst. As I have been giving this message for a number of years, many Christians may not fully identify or realize that they might be negative.
“Negativity is a tendency to be downbeat, disagreeable, and skeptical. It’s a pessimistic attitude that always expects the worst.” Vocabulary.com
So what is wrong with being disagreeable or negative? There are spiritual principles involved that can cause our behavior as believers to open or close the heavens based on our heart attitudes, words and behavior.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Galatians 6:7 NIV
The spiritual principle of sowing and reaping can work for us or against us. If we continually sow grumbling and complaining, we can reap a closed heaven.
This means that our grumbling can cause our prayers to go unanswered. Even worse, according to the apostle Paul, it can cause our lights to become dim in a world that needs the light and love of Jesus.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky. Philippians 2:14–15 NIV
God is calling us to a 40-day fast for the revival that is about to start in California. As California awakens, the revival will spread all around the world.
“Call My people to a 40-day fast from negative talk and negative thoughts and have them replace them with joy and love!”
The Lord was clear: this fast does not need to be the way we have fasted before. It is a celebration of what is coming and it will open the heavens over us, our cities and the revival that is bursting forth in California.
Will you be a part of this? From March 1 through April 9, Lou Engle (with The Call), Keith Ferrante and I are calling for this special 40-Day Negativity Fast to open the heavens for revival! Watch our webinar replay here for FREE!
God recently brought the 3 of together for the first time—because of a dream (which you’ll hear about at the beginning of the webinar) and we’re so excited about this new thing God is doing!
