(Ryan Lestrange) I was recently preaching in Texas when The Lord spoke to me and said: “It is time for another wave of Asuza revival!” I was almost stunned when I heard this. He prompted me to begin to research some of the primary components of that move. There are many observations that apply but I want to focus on one particular: the humility and surrender of the primary voice of that revival: William J. Seymour. He was an unlikely candidate to lead the sweeping move of God for many reasons yet God chose Him! I love how God picks the underdog and raises them up.
William Seymour was determined that God would get the glory. There were amazing miracles including a man with a missing arm receiving a brand new arm during a sweeping move of glory! Seymour was so determined to keep the focus on God that he would often put his head inside of the box that was his pulpit so that men were not looking at him. Imagine how foolish it looked: praying, speaking with his head in the pulpit! He took the low road so that Jesus could be lifted up.
I sense in my spirit: That The Father is looking for another generation of Seymours who will not take the glory for themselves but serve in humility!!!! If God poured that type of power out on most men today they would attempt to package and market it. Perhaps our own pride and ambition are roadblocks to revival in this hour. Perhaps we need a baptism in humility and glory! I sense deep in my heart that The Father is seeking people who will yield to Him on uncommon levels. He wants to visit nations and release glory. We must allow our own hearts to be refined and bathed in humility.
Phil. 2:3 (AMP)- Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].
