This Is A Time Of Transition

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

As some of you already know, my wife & I have moved from the So. Texas area to a higher elevation in Central Texas. Approximately 9 months ago, the Lord instructed us to put our house up for sale & to begin packing to move “higher”. After 2 different sales & failed escrows, our house finally sold & escrow closed on January 8th of this year. Shortly after this, with the help of several of our dear family, we moved to the Kerrville area & began to “settle in” over the past 3 months. The entire process has been a time of preparation to bring us to where we are today…He has brought us to a higher place. This speaks both physically & spiritually. The past 9 months have not been easy, but the Lord has brought us through His will for our lives & we are now walking out His next steps for our lives & ministry ahead.

Early this morning as I was praying, the Lord began to speak to me a word for His people about this time. He said just as my wife & I have gone through a time of preparation & change over the past 9 months, He said that this is a time of transition for many of His people…He desires for us to move out of where we have been & to arise to a higher place. Please prayerfully receive His word for this hour:

“My children, be encouraged…for this is a time to rejoice. Be strengthened…for this is a time to stand. Let faith arise…for this is a time to walk into your destiny. For this is the time for you to see yourselves, as you have never seen yourselves before. For change is coming to My people…change that will take you out of your complacency…change that will catapult you to higher heights & deeper depths in Me. For I am preparing My people for what is yet ahead & many of you have already seen changes come. Some of you are in the middle of change now as it unfolds before you. I love you, My children…it is important that you position yourself so you will be able to walk out My plan for your lives.

This is a time for My people to let go of the way things have been & begin to see newness of life…a newness that comes from Me. For many of you have been in the same place for a very long time & many of you have prayed for change to come. Some of you have even begun to wonder if things will ever change in your life. Today I declare to you, that as you will begin to arise in your faith, you will begin to find the substance of things you have hoped for & begin to see the evidence of things unseen…for faith will bring you to your place that I have long desired you to be. Now is the time to trust Me, as you have never trusted Me before…begin to call upon Me for what I have put into your hearts to receive.

Let go of how things have been & begin to see yourselves with eyes of faith. Shake off the complacency that has taken hold of you & allow Me to take you to a higher realm…begin to acquiesce with Me in this hour & watch what I will do. Let that which has fallen to the wayside be taken up again…let Me breathe on it…let Me bring life back to it…for if it has come from Me, I will surely cause it to prosper. I know that it is easy to think that nothing will ever happen for you, but you have to understand things as I see them…for things do not happen according to a carnal understanding…things happen in My timing…things happen in due season…if you faint not…so begin to believe & watch what I will do.

Understand that I am not speaking about presumption or foolish whims…I am speaking about things that I have put within your hearts. If you will honestly look within you, you will be able to discern what is of Me & what is flesh & folly. I speak of that which will move you into My Kingdom…I speak of that which will bring you closer unto Me…I speak of that which I have ordained for this hour, to prepare you for the time ahead. I speak of preparation & change…for this is what will be needed to make you ready for the time that is coming. This is a time of transition for My people…it is important that you know this for yourselves & position yourselves in your place, so that change can come.

For as the changes come, you will find yourselves in position to be impacted by Me in a greater measure…for My Kingdom will come, My will; will be done in you, as it is in Heaven. That is why it is important that you get your eyes off of what you want & begin to get your eyes on what I want for you…for some of you do not know the difference & because of this, changes have come that were not of Me. Some of you have learned this over time…some of you will learn this in the months ahead. The important thing is to learn obedience through the things you suffer…for as long as you will learn from these things, you can eventually be found in your proper place, at a later date…so be sensitive to Me.

Always remember My word in Is 55:11-12…for as My word goes forth out of My mouth, it will not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please & it shall prosper in the thing that I sent it & you will go out with joy & be led forth in peace. Remember…My joy & My peace are imperative for the days ahead…you will greatly need these to stay positioned in the place where I will take you. For in the time ahead, you will see much blessing, but you will also see times of adversity. You need to remember this, so the enemy of your souls does not trick you into becoming shipwrecked because things do not go the way that feel they should go…for this will happen to many down the road.

As many of you have felt “stuck” for a very long time…even now will many become free. Freedom will come so you can accomplish My will for your lives. The reason some of you have been stuck for so long is because you have been unwilling to see things My way & walk out the will I desire for your lives. Some of you may say that this is not true, but this is because you have only seen things in a limited understanding. But, as you will now move along with Me, I will bring the change that needs to come…just be open, willing & obedient to walk out what I lay before you. The hardest part will be to break free from things remaining the same…but as you will persevere in Me, My freedom will soon be realized.

The time of transition has come…be open to what I will bring before you. The time of transition has come…be willing to walk it out. The time of transition has come…be obedient to what I desire for you to do. Let My joy & peace carry you forward in newness of life. Walk out things that are of sound doctrine…do not be misled by ideas or mindsets that do not line up with My word. For a snare has been raised up to deceive My people, so that they would make presumptuous decisions & go in directions that are not of Me. Rest in Me to lead you & take you where you need to go…trust Me to make a way where there seems to be no way. Walk with Me in these & you will not be disappointed, says the Lord”.

We are truly living in exciting times! May the Lord impact you greatly, as you walk out His will for your lives in the days ahead!

In His great love & mercy,
Pastor Mark
