Authentic racial unity and brotherly love will be a hallmark of sustainable revival. There have been many initiatives to facilitate unity in the church, between races, and between cultures. They have accomplished a little but only God can change the hearts of men so there is genuine unity. That transformational breakthrough will occur, not by men’s efforts but, supernaturally once an atmosphere of revival has occurred. In that atmosphere, we are able to break through the barriers and see the kind of racial, denomination and cultural reconciliation that we know is in God’s heart.To facilitate unity, we, first and foremost, are crying out for God to break through and manifest His presence even more, then all the things that we are trying to fix will come.
To facilitate unity, we, first and foremost, are crying out for God to break through and manifest His presence even more, then all the things that we are trying to fix will come. If Jesus is living His life in a city, not one person can tolerate or excuse racism or prejudice at any level. Those who have given their hearts and lives to Jesus, all covered by His blood, will see only Jesus in each other and come to the forefront as one. We will come together in love and begin working together in ways that are tangible. It will be visible to the world and they will say with conviction “Look how different they are and how they love each other. Only the one true God of the earth could bring them together”. Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35).”This revival cannot be the transformational vessel it is meant to be without all races and all denominations.
We believe we are in the midst of the beginnings of a sustainable, ever-increasing revival in the church the likes of which the world has never seen. This revival cannot be the transformational vessel it is meant to be without all races and all denominations. So as this revival emerges, as God manifests His presence more and more, we want to be intentional about making opportunities for people to come together in authentic unity.
