Haiti Missions, November.

I will be heading back to Haiti for ministry in November. Islamists are making inroads there, we must stand strong with believers there for a mighty break through of GOD’s Spirit. We will be helping to rebuild at least one church, any donation, large or small is much appreciated and tax-deductible in the USA. Send a check to REVIVE , 1105 Belt Line Road, Collinsville, IL 62234 or give safely and securely online at . Be sure to designate your gift for MISSION HAITI. GOD bless you!

Shake Those Negative Feelings: Here’s How.

EXCELLENT and so very helpful, this is right on!


Sad person holding face with hands

One of the most common phrases I hear from clients is this: “well, that’s just how I feel, and I can’t help it.” As a therapist, my first response is to validate the client’s feeling; that really is how the person is feeling, whether it’s rational or not. My second response is to challenge the rationality of the belief that feelings cannot be changed; they can.

Unless a person is suffering from a diagnosable mental illness, most people have the ability to change their feelings. If you don’t know how, we will learn in this article:

But let’s first get a few things out of the way:

Our culture has perpetuated a lot of different myths about feelings. For instance, if you’re a guy reading this article, you’ve probably already had a negative reaction to the word “feelings.” Well congratulations my friend, you’ve just experienced the consequences of one of…

A House of Prayer

REVIVE is a House of Prayer

Jesus said, “My House will be called a House of Prayer for all Nations.”

We are believing, praying, expecting, prophesying and working toward revival. It is in our name, it is our DNA, it is our focus, passion and heart-beat. But we must continually be reminded that revival does not begin in the pulpit, it does not begin in the tuning of instruments at band rehearsal, it does not begin in our planning and strategy sessions.

Revival only and always begins in two prayer meetings. The first is your private prayer time, just you and the LORD. The second is the corporate prayer meeting, the Body of CHRIST seeking GOD together.

These two prayer meetings are the two wings of consecrated faith that the Dove of the Spirit will fly on. Without both, we are just spinning our wheels in empty human effort, trying to keep a machine of ministry running without the lubricating Oil of Holy Spirit.

A moment in prayer is never wasted, Heaven waits for those who will take GOD at His Word. All things are possible to those who believe. See you at Prayer Meeting!

Ready for WW3?

“I have been a serious student of Eschatology (end-times prophecy) and of Christian history since I was 13 years of age. In the thousands of books in my personal library there are hundreds on this topic. I have read the Bible cover-to-cover many times. I can assure you that there is no justification anywhere in scripture for the idea that Armageddon must be called WW3, or that WW3 will be Armageddon.
Let me remind you that many people thought WW1 was the final epic battle.
Then, others thought the end of WW2 would welcome Christ back to earth.
Let’s look even further back in history; the necessary, defensive Crusades brought many to thoughts of the end of the age.
The same with the Bubonic Plague.
Now, there is another school of thought that proposes the next world-wide war must be the final battle, Armageddon, thus attached to Christ’s Return.
There is no justification for this kind of date-setting.
I do believe in the imminent return of Christ.
I do believe there are many, many signs that we are nearing the end.
In fact, next week at the church I pastor, I am beginning a new series on the “Signs of the Times”
However, I must caution you not to assume everything that is happening in our world is a necessary part of prophecy that must be fulfilled. To put it bluntly, that is rubbish.
Our world may soon be faced with the inevitable task of destroying the IS.
Can you imagine a scenario where Iran is allowed to finish the nuclear weapons they are working on, and then Iran is swallowed up in the IS?
That is not such a far-fetched wild scenario.
It is a distinct possibility.
We cannot allow that to happen for any reason, and certainly not because of some mis-guided eschatology.
We must fight this IS spirit of antichrist with the same tenacity we fought the Nazi-jihadists in WW2. Study your history. Hitler worked closely with islamic-jihdists in his quest to annihilate the Jews.
I pray the IS is stopped before all out int’l war. (My son the soldier has seen enough combat). I pray my grandson does not have to fight this war. I am praying for the Return of Christ. And I am praying for leadership in America who will rise to the challenge of this day and prevent WW3 in this generation.
We could stop this now, just like the world should have stopped Hitler. You know what did not work with Hitler? Compromise, appeasement and negotiation.
It will not work today with these be-heading, crucifying, raping, allah-worshippers. America, this is a wake-up call.
If you don’t want WW3 in the next 4-5 years, we must act now.”

Prophecy Moment! Casting out racism in the church!

Jesus’ Prophetic Prayer for Unity
That simply MUST include all RACES and all COLORS!
John 17:20-23
“I do not pray for these alone but also for those who will believe in Me through their word. That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that you have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”

There is no white church, black church, Latino church or any other color church, there is only JESUS’ Church!
He is a jealous GOD and He wants His church back!
Day of Pentecost, who was in the crowd? People from every nation on the earth including the nations of Africa! Egypt and Libya were mentioned specifically.
I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh!
We will gather in Heaven with folks from every tribe, tongue people and nation.
You know which church should be the most ethnically diverse body on the planet? The Pentecostal, Spirit-Filled church and specifically the Assemblies of GOD. We were birthed out of the Azusa St. revival in Los Angeles, which was led by a humble man, blind in one eye, a black preacher named William Seymour!

Let me speak to those joining us by video… I don’t care if your church is in the middle of the whitest state, and you have not seen a black person in your town for 20 years, the next time you are looking for a pastor, you had better consider a Latino or Black Pastor. If you CANNOT, than you are not a church, you are a racist club, you are not Spirit-Filled and you are certainly not Pentecostal…

You know why there are great pockets of racial tension in America today? Do you want to know why it may get worse? It is NOT politics. We have elected a black President, TWICE! The problem is NOT judicial… We have a black Attorney General! I will tell you the problem.
It is our fault, it is the church’s fault!
Where on earth did we ever get the hellish idea that there could be such a thing as a white church, or a black church, or any other color church?
What happens when a white person goes to a white church and does not have a close black or Latino Christian friend.? And the reverse? How can we pretend we are HIS church if we are determined to be a one-color church?

The GLORY, the REVIVAL will fall, when we once and for all fix this horrendous blight on the American church!

I am calling today prophetically for JESUS prayer to be answered! BY US! We can answer Jesus Prayer!! We will be ONE!! As for REVIVE, we are going to reflect the Glory of Heaven on this earth! Your Kingdom come, your will be done at REVIVE, just like it is in Heaven!! Pastor Myles Holmes

Hollywood on Marriage…once in a while they get it right…

Marriage wisdom from a Hollywood producer?
As reported in this morning’s USA Today,
“Friends say to me a lot, ‘Oh, monogamy is not natural.’
And I always say, “Well, neither are toilets, but when you don’t use them, things get very messy.’ ” (Aug. 21 USA TODAY)
Now there is a mountain of truth!
By the way, monogamy is not natural, it is SUPERnatural, and it is not monotony either, it can be MARVELOUSLY MIRACULOUS AND FUN!
