Revival Through Unity

I was away at a conference a couple of weeks ago that was themed on the Father's Heart. The speakers were Mark Stibbe founder of 'The Father's House Trust' and Heidi Baker founder of 'Iris Ministries'. When I was standing under an open heaven of intimacy with my Heavenly Father there was a great release of God's mercy. I saw His children in need of being bought back into the arms of their loving Daddy God and I was wrecked. Tears and more tears. Since the beautiful garden of Eden, Satan has been making orphans, he is the ultimate orphan-maker. He made orphans out of Adam and Eve and he has been in that profession of stealing, lying and destroying ever since. It's time it stopped. Both spiritual orphans that need their Heavenly Father and orphans on earth that have no parents.

A way that this could be overcome is for spiritual mothers and fathers to rise up in the church.
God speaks in Malachi 4:6 that God will 'turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers.' Through God speaking to me through the book 'Jesus Culture - Living A Life That Transforms The World' by Banning Liebscher and in other ways, God has revealed His heart to me that He wants revival to come through the generations aligning themselves. Blessings fall in abundance with the power of God's ordered alignment. In Exodus 17, there is the story where Joshua was sent with some other men by Moses to fight against the Amalekites. While Joshua and the rest of the army fought courageously and skilfully, Moses was holding up the rod of God overlooking the battle. Even though Joshua and the army were well-trained, they began to loose the battle as soon as Moses' arms weakened and the rod lowered but once again they became victorious when Aaron and Hur assisted Moses in holding up the Rod of God. The victory could not have been won without each generation. Moses and Joshua were dependent on one another and in correct alignment. There was a submission to authority and there was an honouring of the elder.

There is a generation gap in the church that is quenching the Holy Spirit and stopping revival. Banning Liebscher describes two reasons for this. The first reason is that there is a spirit of independence in the generations. The younger generation has the mind-set that they can do things without the older generation and that the older generation do not understand them. Pride oozes out. Now when God was rising up this passion in me to see the generations align, it was only right that He showed me the garden of my heart which actually had the weeds of independence in it that were choking life from allowing me to see God's greatness through alignment. The seeds of independence were sown in my childhood where once the Lord set me free from the enemy using fear against me, he caught me in another way where I felt that because I had relied so much on my parents in that fearful time I had to prove myself. So once God revealed this to me, we dealt with it  together with lots of Holy Spirit weed killer. It has produced a lot joyful freedom as I re-aligned myself with my parents and He is teaching me to honour them fully.

The next reason is that the church has believed the lie that Satan has been telling them about how revival is going to come. The lie has seem to spread like wildfire that revival is only coming through the younger generation. Eck-errr! Revival is coming when the generations unite. So come on spiritual mothers and fathers! rise up! There are no lesser sons or daughters of the King. God can use anyone! You just have to position yourself to cling to the Father. Allow Him to love on you and then let that love pour out on others, on your spiritual sons and/or daughters. Who are you investing in? and who is investing in you?


  1. That is a very timely post especially nowadays when the young generations are not really interested in knowing GOd. They trust more of themselves and we as God's followers must stand up and be active and be a living witness . God help us!

  2. What a great post! We all need each other so much; God wants us unified! I actually have fought the word of revival coming through the young a bit in my mind. I am in my mid thirties and felt on fire for God. I knew He was reviving my life! If God can use a donkey, I think He can start revival in anyone of any age. Unity is a key! Again, great word!

  3. Hi Daisy,
    This is exactly what is happening in my church. The older are stubbornly holding on and the younger and arrogant and prideful. My husband and I and a few others that are in the middle are seriously trying to bridge the gap and have ALL become one in Christ.

    Thanks for sharing,

  4. Oh my goodness! Heidi Baker. What an awesome woman of God! I have never seen her in person, but have seen her through video. You were truly blessed. I and a prayer partner pray for our church for revival. I too am on FIRE! I believe that the young people play an important part, but will not be the sole ushering in revival. Unity. Wooooooo! Thanks for sharing. Blessings.

  5. We are the body of Christ. All parts are necessary and none is more important than another. It is only when we all (old, young and everyone in between) recognise our parts within the body and unite with all of the other parts, that we will be in a position to fully welcome in the Kingdom of God in the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Great post Daisy!

  6. Hello Daisy - thanks for your recent comment on my blog.
    I hope all your teaching plans are working out well for you - it is a really fulfilling career!
    blessings xx

  7. "No lesser sons and daughters of the King." What a beautiful statement. I hope I can help bridge the gap between the older and younger. I agree that it will take unity to bring revival. And believe God wants to send us revival and I yearn for it!

  8. Yes...I agree. We must all work together for the Gory of God, to have revival and bring others in.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. It is nice to meet you as well.
