Jody and LanoraDear Revival Carriers,

We just had an amazing weekend with Shake the Nations andEvangelist Nathan Morris! The fire on the altars of our hearts is burning even brighter with an increased passion for the presence of God to invade our region. Nathan came as an evangelist to us but he was certainly used as a prophet to declare the word of the Lord. The greatest miracle of all was that a huge number of people gave their hearts to the Lord! The harvest fields are white and it is time to reap! Praise reports are coming in from people saying their lives are changed forever.

If our lives are truly changed forever, then we will see the transformation in our state that has been prophesied take place with greater momentum. One of the things that pierced our hearts to the core was that Nathan said he felt such a spirit of apathy in this region that it made him sick to his stomach. As we further discussed this after the meeting, he shared that when a region has allowed the counterfeit supernatural realm to dominate, then a spectator mentality begins to settle in and the well of the miraculous can be stopped up.

This was not meant to discourage us but should stir us to rise and shine like neverbefore! Some of the things that we have allowed to distract us and to take our attention will have to be set aside for the greater purpose of His glory being revealed. Too many times we find ourselves majoring on the minors and making mountains out of mole hills. We must have the eyes of the Dove. Keeping a single focus on the King will cause our hearts to burn with His desire rather than our own agendas.

We must daily examine our hearts and let the Holy Spirit reveal anything that would deter the move of God in our lives. It is a time that God is showing us our true colors as well as those of others. When He shows us ours, we must repent and ask for His wisdom and ways. When He shows us others, we must pray and not say! In other words, let us watch over our own hearts and refuse to move into a judgmental, critical spirit of our brothers and sisters. We find it much easier to give grace to ourselves than to others. The love of God calls us to lay down our lives for the brethren, not to take their lives into our own hands. This is what it means for us to move in true holiness and the fear of the Lord.
Joseph had a coat of many colors that represented his place of favor with his father. His brothers’ jealousy was fueled by Joseph’s immaturity and pride when he shared his dream with them. The true colors of Joseph and his brothers were revealed through the gift of the coat of many colors. Sometimes our favor and gifts can be a snare to us and to those around us if we are not growing up into mature relationship with our Father. We can find ourselves postured in pride, when the favor and gifts were really given to us to simply represent Him. Or, we may find ourselves jealous of someone else’s favor and gifting and never move into what God ordained for our portion and inheritance.
The good news is that in spite of the human weaknesses, God executed His plan for an entire nation through Joseph and his brothers. It is a beautiful picture of God’s heart
of redemption, restoration, and provision. This shows us that when God shows us the true colors of our character and nature, we have the opportunity to exchange our garmentsof self-promotion for His of love and the heart of a servant.

As we are moving into the holiday season, let us guard over the fire on our altars and not allow our focus on the move of God to dim in the midst of many activities and functions. Sometimes the good things we are doing can crowd in on our devotion and worship if we do not guard against it.Proverbs 16:2 says, “People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines the motives.” Our prayer is that as He reveals our motives this month, that we will be quick to align to His heart!


FountainGate is heading to Israel from October 16th-30th on another prayer journey. Please pray for us that we will have opportunities to share Jesus and shine His light everywhere we go.
