Thomas Gibson – Revival


1998 03 01.1

For this is the will, says the Lord, for My people, that they be not defined by the ways of the world, not defined by the ways of the flesh, and not defined by the ways that this earth thinks.

There is coming a time when the needs in this world will not be met by the ways of the world. There are coming bad times.

But those who put their faith in Me, those who put their trust in Me, those who walk after My ways, says the Lord, they will have their needs met; no, not by worldly ways, but by My ways, for I am all powerful, able to do all things. And those who walk with Me will always be with Me, and I will provide in every way for them, no matter what the cause, or what the situation, I will provide, says the Lord.

Do not be disheartened by what happens in this earth in the coming years. Do not be disheartened. There are coming rough times. So be it. Let it be. It must be. It cannot be taken away.

Do not pray against it, but pray for it. For it is in these rough times there shall come a great revival far beyond anything you can imagine, there shall come a great revival. And though satan will fight it with everything he has, it will not be stopped, it will not be held back, for I will have a great revival in this earth, says the Lord. And it will take judgment and the wrath of God to wake people up and bring it to pass.

So let it be. Trust in the King of Kings, not in the world of worlds. For only the King has the answer; and the world has only its own ways, which will fall and fail.

There is this, says the Lord, that you understand that you can't walk with one foot in the world, and one foot with Me. You must choose which path to walk on. You must choose which path to walk on. You must not be turned aside after the ways of the world. You must choose the ways of God. You must make a final decision. Go with Me, says the Lord, or go with the world.

Too long My people have tried to play with the world, I will not allow it any more, says the Lord. I WILL NOT ALLOW IT. IT MUST STOP. IT MUST STOP. IT MUST STOP.

Great are the times to come in the spiritual realm. Many a prophet has wished he could live in this time. Yet My people are scared of this time. Why are they scared? I said I will take care of you. I am good for My word, says the Lord. I am good. I will not be disheartened by your attitude against Me. I stand fast on My promise. I will make everything work toward your end—and I mean toward your end. Every need you have will be met. But the lust you have for new cars and new houses—I will not meet that, says the Lord, it is not of Me.

When all this here comes, remember it has been prophesied to My prophets. Prophets upon prophets have desired to see it because the power of the Lord will flow so strongly.

So set aside the things of the earth. Stand fast in the things of God, and know that never, never, never will the earth be shaken like its going to be shaken. Never will the earth be shaken like its going to be shaken. Never will the earth be shaken like its going to be shaken. Never will the earth be shaken like its going to be shaken.

Hear Me, says the Lord, the end is near. The end is near. But it is not as close as you think, but it is coming, says the Lord. And never again will I bring judgment like I will bring on this earth. But it will come, a little at a time, then more, then more, then more, till it finally finishes with My return, says the Lord.

So stand fast in My word and know that the Lord is on your side, and I am with you even unto the ends of the earth.


1998 03 02.1

For I am, says the Lord, a servant to those who will serve Me. I will serve them as they serve Me. I seek to serve My people. I desire their best.

When I ask them to give up the things of the flesh, I do not do so because I am against them. I do so because it is their best interests to give up the things of the flesh, to turn to the things of the Spirit, to turn to the things of power that rise above the things of this earth.

It is in their best interest to lose interest in the things of this earth which will not protect them, and to rise unto those things of God which will bring them through the coming trials, and tribulations, and persecutions, and troubles, that I shall bring upon this earth.

Yes, I shall bring them, says the Lord. For I desire to let satan run to and fro through the earth to do these things, because My children have fallen prey to devil's very clever ways.

They have sought the things of the earth. My children have sought the things of the earth. They have forgotten the things of God, and have sought the things of the earth.

But when they have to rely on the Kingdom of God, on the Spirit of the Lord, and the protection of the Most High; then and only then, will they give up the things of the earth and turn to the things of God.

And I will raise up a church, and I will raise up a people, and I will raise up a voice in this earth that shall reign powerfully strong in My word.

For you see, there are those who will stand only for Jesus when the times are good, but their hearts are corrupted with the things of the earth.

But those that stand for the things of God when times are bad, their hearts are pure before Me. Because they do not care about the earth, and the things of the earth. They care about the things of heaven. They'll stand and declare My Name no matter what! Then I will be with, I will empower, and I will use them to bring about a massive strong word of the Lord, and a move of God in this age, says the Lord.


1998 10 18.1

This is the word of the Lord. That there be a remnant of My people in this hour that will stand and know the will of God. That this judgment and wrath that comes will bring about a great revival, will bring about a great repentance among My people that will turn them from the fleshly desires unto that of the Spirit, that they will seek the things of the Living God, not the things of this earth. And its that that I intend to bring about.

I'll bring these revivals up, here and there, as people with a heart cry for repentance go to prayer for this nation and this world which has sought the things of the earth and not the things of God.

And as they seek more of a repentance among God's people and among the world, I will bring it to pass. For it is this that brings true revival: a prayer from the heart to do anything that is necessary to serve the Lord, and to bring a revival to the nations.

That's how revival begins. It begins from the heart of My people who will serve Me above all things.


1998 10 24.2

For I am your God, and I am the One who decides what will be and what will not, says the Lord God.

Do not be disheartened by judgments, coming wrath, and wrath that already is. Rather look forward to the times of the Spirit. For I am bringing a new revival to this land, this land of North America.

I am bringing a revival, says the Lord. There will be a strong revival, but not like revivals that you have known in the past. This revival shall occur NOT in the hierarchy of the churches, but rather it shall occur in the streets, it shall occur in the lowly places, and it shall occur wherever people gather.

For I will bring you a revival that will affect the young people. I will bring you a revival that will affect all of the things that go on on the street. You will not be able to walk down the streets of some cities without knowing that there is revival in the land, it will be so obvious.

You will not be able to look at this and say, this is something that has gone on in the past, for it will be something new and different, and it shall be completely different, and completely different, and completely different.

For this revival that comes shall be a strong revival. There will be more miracles and more moves of God, more of the hand of God than you have ever seen in your life before. This shall come in the very near future.

Woe be tied to those who fight against this. For this is not something that is going to occur in the hierarchy of the churches. It will not occur there. It will not occur there. For it will occur in the streets. It will occur in the schools. And it will occur in the workplace.

And many of the church shall fight against this revival. For they shall see it not as a revival, but as a turning against the ordinances of the church.

No, says the Lord, it is a turning against the things of man, the things that man have designed!! AND I SHALL SHAKE THE CHURCH FROM ITS VERY FOUNDATION, and those things built on man shall fall, and those things built on Me, says the Lord Jesus, shall stand.

Hear, and hear, and hear, and hear the Word of the Lord. This is the hour and this is the time! Revival is coming! And it shall not be like anything you have ever known before. It shall be like something that is right out of the book of Acts. GO READ THAT BOOK!! And read it all!

Understand that revivals in those days were not some calm little thing occurring in some little corner of the city that people hardly ever heard of!! You went out in the streets and asked them what was going on: THEY KNEW!!

Some of the so-called revivals of the land: you would go out into the churches, and you ask them and they'll know; but you go out into the streets, and THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT!!! For it hasn't even touched them!!

This revival shall touch all!!

And while many shall fight against it, there will be many that go with it, and then stand and serve the Lord.

But people will know about it! This will not occur in a corner! This will occur openly! It will shake the entire nations, and it will shake cities, and it will shake towns.

And it will turn people against each other. For satan shall fight this with everything he has. But I say, says the Lord, I am the victor, I am the victor.

You shall see revival like you have never seen revival before. This is a time of revival. This is the time to bring yourself to the Spirit of the Living God and commit yourself to do whatever I am doing.

For the churches are not the major of this revival—not the churches as you know them. The churches as you know them are the hierarchy of man, BUT THIS SHALL BE THE POWER OF THE LIVING GOD!! And it will shake many. It will shake many. And a few in the church shall begin to turn, but most will not turn to Me in this revival. They will be in love with their hierarchy, their buildings, their order, and their ways.

But read the Book of Acts, and know that this is the revival that shall come. Thousands shall come at a single day to the knowledge of the Lord.  And it shall shake cities. It shall create uproars.

People will stand up for the Lord, and satan shall not be at ease! For he shall fight this. And it shall create uproars. It shall not sit well with many people. But it shall sit well with Me, for great is the coming revival.

But beware in these days of revival. Beware in these days of revival. There is a coming revival that shall never, never be foreseen by man. This day of revival is almost at hand. This day of revival shall soon be.

Now I am laying the foundations of that revival even in this hour. The judgments of God must come first. The many that preach: revival, revival, revival, and oh, things will be different—but I tell you judgment must come first. For until people are brought down from the lusts of the world by the judgments of God revival cannot be! For their hearts are to the things of this earth.

So note the judgments that shall come. It shall pave the way for a great revival that shall usher in millions of souls into the Kingdom of God. This is My will, says the Lord. This is My will. Never doubt it! The things of God shall never be the same. And churches that shall lean to the understanding of the Lord, shall be shook and revived! And those that lean to the understanding of man shall be stale, and I shall bring them down, and I shall judge them, and I shall bring wrath upon them.

For in this day and age those that are of Me, says the Lord, shall stand, and those that are not, shall fall!!

Hear the word, and know this word, beware that you do not stand against your brothers in this time. For many shall go ahead and fight, brother against brother, christian against christian, AND IT IS NOT MY WILL!!

For those that fight against their own brothers in Christ—I shall mark them for wrath! You want to know who is going to be true in this revival, and who isn't? Look to those who do not fight against their own brothers.

There shall be a division in the church in this time. And in this division you will be able to see those who walk with Me, and those who do not. Those who walk with Me will not fight against their own brothers. But rather they'll stand up and just preach the Word. They'll stand up and they'll just love the Word. They'll walk in the Word, and the power of God shall be upon them, says the Lord God of all!!


1999 09 06.1

There is a renewal of the strength of the Spirit in the people of God. This renewal shall come in only a single way. It shall come by the reverence, fear, dedication to the Father from My people, says the Lord.

When this comes, it comes one way: by the reverence, fear, dedication of My people to My word and My will, not to religious organizations, not to their particular church of which they like, but to Me says the Lord.

When they do this, My power shall flow through them. For until they do this, My power cannot flow through them, and it is held back in the earth. For great revival has always come by one method. By the method of dedication, fear, and service to the Most High God—hours on their knees, hours in the prayer, hours, hours, hours seeking God.

This will always bring revival. No, not a false revival that is so common in this earth, but one of power and strength, where healings, miracles, and great signs and wonders are not only the norm, but are the expected thing every single day.

This is what I desire. And when I find people that committed—that nothing on this earth is important, but the serving of the Father in Heaven—then shall come revival like never before.


2000 07 11.1

For I have many of My people, that hear My voice and obey My voice, hearing Me now and realizing that there is coming a time of correction for the church.

My people who are called by My Name are hearing Me, says the Lord, that there is coming a time of correction within the church and within My body where I will stand and teach that My people must humbly obey the Spirit of the Lord.

For so long My people have turned their back with pride, with joy of this world, with lust of the flesh; and not with obedience in the Spirit, says the Lord.

Now is the time when I will begin to call out My people from the time in the organizational churches to the true church that will listen and obey Me in all things. This church shall realize that there is coming a time, and now is, when all of the Lord's people will humbly obey and submit to the will of God.

These, My people, will be out on the street witnessing for Me and doing My will. This is the time of great revival, just at the beginning of this revival, just at the beginning of the laying down of the foundation of this revival!


2000 10 02.1

I am building up a ministry full of My ministers who are totally dedicated unto My work, who seek not the works of man, nor the glory of man; but humbly seek to do the will of God as I have, and am, revealing to them.

Go forth, now, into the world and preach the gospel. Stand up and declare the word of God. Do not hold back. The time to bring in the end-time harvest is here: the harvest of souls saved from eternal hell and brought into the Kingdom of God.

This is the time to go forth. Stand and know that I am ready to bring forth the great harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God.

Believe and know that this is not done because of some great commandment. This is done because the times are coming when things will be hard and not easy. When they come you will understand that these are really close to the end-times, really close to the return of the Lord. And yet there is still some time in years to bring in the harvest of souls.


And when it is done there will be a great harvest and I will rejoice, says the Lord. For My people will have learned to obey the Word, and to trust their Lord, and not to trust the arm of the flesh.


2000 12 17.1

For thus saith the Lord. I am now bring My people to a realization that there is, at this time, a great harvest being prepared. A harvest of souls for the kingdom of God. As the prophecies of judgment and revival go out, realize that their prophesying is a reality that is to bring about the revival. As people hear of the prophecies of judgment they will scoff and laugh, but as they begin to occur, they will seek the truth, and some will come into a knowledge of the truth and turn to serve the Lord God.


2001 02 07.1

For thus saith the Lord, hear the power of God in your life.

Those who thirst for righteousness, who hunger for the things of God: they shall receive the power of the Lord.

Those who spend their time in the things of the world, receive the things of the world, the blessings of the world. And when the world’s blessings come to an end, their blessings come to an end.

Make no mistake! I do not reward those of My people who spend no time with Me, or very little time. Those who spend time with Me in prayer, and in fasting, and in studying the Word––they are the ones that will stand up and receive great miracles and great glory in the last days. And these are the last days.

You are about to see My hand upon this earth in a greater way than ever before. In 3 specific ways you will see it:

1. You will see the judgments of God roll out: one at a time, and severely.

2. You will see the miracles of God come forth upon His people as He

delivers them, protects them, and guides them through this time, and

3. You’ll see a revival come forth from this. You’ll see a revival like never

before, saith the Lord!


2001 02 07.2

The following things will occur during the years known as “the war years.”

Thus says the Lord, coming is the Russian invasion throughout Canada and most of the U. S. You will see a significant invasion of foreign forces. During this time the United States will be brought to its knees.

It is after this time that you will see great persecution against My people, and against My church. But it is also after this time you shall see the greatest revival ever to come, rise up. Before that time you shall see revival. You shall say it is great!. Indeed, it shall be great. But the revival to come after will be much stronger, and much strengthened, says the Lord.


2001 03 28.3

There are days coming, says the Lord, when My church, My true church, called by My Name, shall raise up in such power and such glory that they shall be greater than the book of Acts church. These days are fast approaching, but much must be done.

For My church seeks after one wave and then they’re blown to some other doctrine, and then a different doctrine, and this is not of Me.

But My church must humble themselves and seek the things of the Word of God. And as I purify them, and burn sin out of their life, they shall become that church of great power and glory. So says the Lord.


2001 04 05.2

With my eyes closed in prayer I can see a street of a city with many people on it. I am aware that these people are walking in their busy lives straight to hell.

Thus says the Lord, these people are headed to hell. They are headed into destruction. My people, called by My Name, locked in various churches of various orders, have not reached out to bring these people to a knowledge of the salvation of God.

But now, today, I am beginning to bring people out, and indeed I have been bringing people out, to bring them into the streets, in the highways and byways, to preach the Word and to reach out and touch these and let them know there is an answer, there is a way of life which they are called to walk unto, and which they are not walking toward, but rather they are walking toward destruction. And I shall bring these people out and they shall be a witness and many shall come to the Lord.

Stand in faith and know that this time may be harrowing when you see the divisions of the church between the righteous and the unrighteous. But it is nevertheless going to bring about a great revival. This revival will come in the unity as the people of the church come into the street and start witnessing like never before, saith the Lord.


2001 05 05.1

I am God. I am the One who will, and is now, bring revival to those who have served Me in their heart. Those who have made a pretense of service will not walk, at this time, in this revival. They may walk in it at a later time with repentance.

This is my will: that all those who will willing serve Me walk in all of the revival that is to come. It will be a time of renewal of My people, a time of revival of their souls, a time of renewal of their health, a time of revival for all those around.


2001 06 17.1

For as I raise up My church, My true one church, says the Lord, united in love, united in Spirit, united in action, united in obedience to the Spirit of God––for as I raise up this church, which I am doing in this day, there shall come a great revival, there shall come a great revival.

For the fractured church of Jesus Christ, which seeks its own divisions cannot bring revival. But a church that is not named by man, but is simply The Church, it can bring revival, and a great revival it shall bring. Throughout the land wherever you are this revival shall come.

But until I burn out divisions, bring unity, and a humble obedience to the Spirit of God, the church cannot lead this revival. For the church itself is in need of reviving. And when I revive it, it shall go forth and a great return to the Lord Jesus Christ shall come. But it will take judgment, chastening, burning sin out, to get the church back where it ought to be. This is occurring now, and shall be occurring for some months and yes, even years.


2004 04 23.1

There are many who walk in pride in the church thinking that they are someone important who will be used in the coming revival. But no! I will use the humble ones who are not part of the great organized man-made church. For the man-made man organized church will not partake of what is to come. For what is to come must come through the unhindered move of the Holy Spirit. Anything else would taint the move of God. So says the Lord God.
