How do you explain it? The young lady who was instantly healed of severe mental illness and later confirmed by her counselor, a guy doing baptisms his foot is miraculously healed, the doctor who said he experienced a real outpouring of God's love, the one set free from a lifetime addiction, many who were "set on fire" and felt a radical shift in their hearts.
You can't explain it to the human mind. But everyone who encountered the goodness of God on the night of the revival knows that God was present and that His goodness was tangible. It was real! REVIVAL IS REAL!
The best part about miracles is they were not the focus. It wasn't about a person, a message or some sort of human platform. IT WAS GOD POURING OUT HIS GOODNESS THROUGH BAPTISM. God was in the water. The water was the point of contact that God used to cleanse, heal, deliver and set people free.
Todd Smith the pastor who leads the North Georgia Revival told his story. He testifies that it started with a simple vision of him seeing fire on the water of an empty baptismal tank at his church in Dawsonville, GA. He believes the Lord told him that people would come to be baptized in the fire on the water. To date, there have been over 8,000 baptisms in about 16 months. Every Sunday night people pour into Dawsonville from all over the world to encounter God's touch in the water. Nobody can explain it.
Pastor Todd Smith recently brought the revival to Peachtree City. He preached a powerful message. The summary was that God called his church to create a HABITATION FOR REVIVAL not a one-time visitation. There are 3 things that a church must do to become a habitation for the Lord:
1. Seek only the Face of God, not His hand (don't make your wants your focus)
2. Learn to Host the Glory of God, be careful what you entertain, or what entertains you
3. God wants to press out everything that blocks His flow in your life (i.e. unforgiveness, bitterness, idolatry)
I believe the Lord wants to create a habitation in Peachtree City and the southern region of Atlanta. I am calling on everyone who wants to stand with me. I appeal to you. We must activate the steps necessary to create a habitation.
We are gathering on a regular basis to pray. If you want to know where and when we are praying please respond to this email and I will notify you.
Plus Pastor Todd Smith and the north Georgia Revival Team is returning September 7 on a Saturday night. Please pray with us for the outpouring to continue.
