seniorlead johnburtonWelcome to our experiment in revival!
Thank YOU for participating in the min-istry of Revival Church. We are fully de-voted to stirring up prayer, prophecy and the pursuit of revival.
God is moving on the Earth, yet we must not allow ourselves to presume that freedom will arrive without our radi-cal participation. At the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. you will find etched into the wall:
F R E E D O M I S N O T F R E E
As we align ourselves well, pray continually, dive deep into an intimate encounter with Jesus and listen to His every word, God will raise up a rem-nant. Revival will burn.
If this concept captures your heart, please let me know. We want to do ev-erything we can to help you connect well with the Revival Church family.
May God bless you powerfully!

Why does it take an outpouring to reintroduce the church to the power of God? Why are movements like Lakeland, Brownsville and Toronto special and rare? Why is it so difficult, in most cities in America, to find a church on fire?
When the Holy Spirit is operating in free-dom in our churches, there will be little need for a jolt from Heaven to get us nor-malized. But, until then, we must cry out for a lightning strike of revival in our cit-ies. We need to apply the paddles to the heart of the church and shock it back to life.
God moved in remarkable power last night at The International House of Prayer East Detroit last night. Heres one testimony:
John,IveNEVERexperiencedwhathappenedtomelastnight.Itsexplainable but incomprehendableIf it hadnt happened tome Icouldntunderstand it in its fullness!!!Thatwhite hotfireWhenyousaid..ImnottalkingaboutyourweaknessesImtalkingaboutANNOINTINGthatFIREhitmychest likeonlysomethingIveseeninamovie..likeacomethittingearthistheonlywaytodescribeit..thatshowit feltand lasted forwhat seemed like foreverburninmeGod!!NowIknowwhatyouwere talkingaboutwhenyourshoulderwasonfireinthatcave!!!
The prevailing theme thats being communicated this week during this con-ference is that encounters like this one are actually to be very normal, quite average in the church!
We are in the midst of a national crisis- a national church that has a form of godliness but denies the power. Its a Sadducee spirit that radically minimizes or discounts all together the supernatural, resurrection power of Jesus. Its common to hear about the resurrection reality in our pulpits, but rarely see resurrection power.
Bring on the paddles.
WHY are OUTPOURINGS and REVIVALS
considered to be SPECIAL and RARE?
By John Burton
The contention of this book is simple - THE EXTREME MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD IS THE BIBLICAL NORM for a New Testament believer. We label it many ways - revival, an outpouring, renewal - and certainly different moves of God have distinct flavors to them. However, regardless of the descriptive term we attach to it, we simply are not experiencing it. Just as we dont attempt to start driving a car in fifth gear, we should understand that the pursuit of revival must begin at the appropriate place. As we move through the gears, we will find ourselves picking up speed and momentum toward the goal of a city-wide outpouring of the Holy Spirit!
I just finished reading 20 Elements of Revival. Everyone should read this book! I wish I had the cash for a case of this book. Seriously! I keep thinking of more people who NEED a copy of it! Its very, very, very rare for me to feel this way about a book other than the Bible.-Kathi Sharpe

This painting is a modern interpretation of Ezekiels dry bones. A friend of mine asked me to paint him an interpretation of these verses. He was a small group leader and had a caring, gentle leadership style. Most paintings of this story show Ezekiel out in the open proclaiming to the field of dry bones in an impersonal way. I wanted to show that sometimes God will heal the dry bones as we care individually and personally for those God brings into our lives. It might not be all stage and glamour. 6th is a reference to Sixth Street in Austin, TX. The skeletons walk the streets. The Open bar sign also speaks of the harvest being ripe and hearts being open for the Word, prophetic evangelism. There is a tiny warfare scene in the clouds.

This image is one He recently gave me during my private time with Him. I saw Him painting my hands and I asked Him, what are you doing? I am painting your hands with my love and grace for my purposes--in you. I asked if I could look at them and see the colors and he said, it doesnt mat-ter, I have painted them with my Glory As He was painting them, they got very warm and stayed that way the whole day.
