I’m reposting this important article from five years ago.
9/23/12 Dream given to Jeff Fenske
Last night, I saw in a dream the leaders of a church wondering what to do, having run out of ideas.
They were all looking at the rectangular box on their digital calendar for the month of May, which had suddenly become all white, empty.
What they had planned on doing had fallen apart, and they were out loud wondering what to do, instead.
I said, “why don’t we start the revival?”
And the dream ended.

To me, this dream represents the current state of the church.
What follows are portions of two long prophecies I got for a pastor, 15 years apart. This first prophecy is from 1991.
God wanted revival to happen decades ago, but the pastors in America chose to do programs instead of doing what the Holy Spirit was trying to tell them to do. We could have saved America, had we only obeyed then. Now, I believe God has said it is too late, but we can still get ‘ONE’ happening, so we can be safe in Christ and united through the difficult times ahead.
But there is no other way, My son. No other program will accomplish this, no other strategy, no other means than by My Word, by My Spirit, by the living Word, the rhema of independence from guilt, the liberating manna in the desert, from where it sprouts shoots that grow into plants, becoming big trees, blossoming all around. But first the root must be planted in soil, the soil of My Words and My love. You know it well. You’ve read it often—about the vine and the branches, the tree and the stalk from which plenty comes.
There is only one way. Abide in Me, and rest assured there is no other way by which life comes. No programs will accomplish this. You will find them bare in the long run—wasted.
Go slow, and get to know Me. Cut back from all these things. Strive not ahead without Me leading—safely behind the Father, safely enduring to the end—safely. In safety there is rest. Safety comes first by seeking Me first above all else….

From the prophecy I got in 2004 for this same pastor. I just capitalized the ONEs now:
Obey, and fruit will come. It’s that simple. … Away from Me there is no life. Forgive and you will be free. … Embrace those who obey, and let’s be ONE, unified, ONE Spirit, ONE way, ONE direction—all going separate directions all at once with Me choreographing each one’s part until it all becomes a whole body that prays hard and is ONE. You will see it. Will you let it happen or stand in the way by your programs that divide? Strength in numbers. …
I am your friend. You can count on that, but I will oppose you if you take these sheep for a ride. Know that I care and will give you great things. Build for yourself a home where you can be ONE. This is what I want, not you in charge of the destiny of others. Let Me lead, and you will be sorry that it took this much time for you to get the picture. That’s okay, but many have been hurt in the process. Shake the demons off your feet and go the higher direction, where life reigns.
The process of getting right with your brother:
Will you not go to them and tell them the truth: your ineptness, not realizing their hurt? They will understand, but give it to them straight. Don’t expect them to obey and love you without you repenting. You do what you can do, not them. It’s not up to them. Treat them with kindness and you will see life, fruit will remain from the greatest two commandments being fully implemented to an extent you’ve never seen. You will see this in your midst, and it will be grand. So full of love your heart will be. Watch the Asbury tape, again, from the beginning. See what can happen. See it as you repent. Watch it before your eyes. Something greater, that can last will come your direction. I promise, if you do what is right. For you are holding back this move. You, first, then others will follow. Give it time. Don’t expect this tomorrow, for people have to catch up, but they will. Others will obey so rapidly as sands of the seashore waking up and smelling the roses that life came and will envelope your soul. Let it sweep you off your feet, and obey. Love will happen….
First, do things first. Tell others you are sorry that you’ve dissed them, that you led them astray, that you took them down a path of disobedience. This dead-end street has a beginning. Show them the way to go by starting at the top, the basics, the greatest two. That’s what they need to hear. That’s what should be draped before their eyes. Let them hang down from the walls.
From the floor, build at ground zero: love fully even as I have loved. Let Me be the example, and set your sights high. You have vision. Let it rip your life where it must, and then go from there. Hurts will cease. Get rid of the demons. Set your sights high, on eternity, your reward if you obey. Many others will follow and learn the way of life at this institution, a place of prayer. It’s okay to falter at first, but you’ve had so much time and prayers. …
Let it be different and new life will come. You will be so glad, happy, relaxed, unified. My Word will happen. Let it give you life. Obey all of it, not just what comes out of your mouth, that what you’ve swallowed hard. Don’t ignore what is written, those passages that warn others to obey, including you. …
Thank you, My son. I will love you, forever, and we will be ONE. Life in the Son is the way to go. Do it now, and you’ll never regret this decision to obey. Give to Me, your pride, and I will hold you up, higher than most, a shining example of mercy. Let’s go and be right for a change: ONE—unified—ONE heart, ONE body. Disobey, never, and I will give you life. …
Thank you, my friend. Let’s go. Now relax and obey. Rewards will come if you let them. Cease striving, and walk the way of men, never. There is a better way, and I will lead you into disaster, never. You can trust Me. See that you obey, and walk righteously. And never again look back. Set your sights high, and you will see mercy. Lots of love will come from your bones, not hate. Be not afraid. Cease striving, away from Me, and I will give you hope to overcome, a way that is better. Rest in me, and transgress, never. Fruit will remain if you obey. Set your sights high, not in Proverbs. A flow from above will accomplish much, not works on earth from below, the dark side. That is where you remain, in the world, their way of thinking.
Leave all these programs aside, and seek a different way, one that is better. Strive no more, and relax, knowing that I am in charge. Don’t fight Me. Rely on your own intelligence cannot bring about change. …
I love you so much. Please, give Me the upper hand and life will come—not the other way around, where life will cease, as it is now: dead — dead services. Come out from among them and be separate, all those churches that disobey. Let them run for cover when the real thing happens. Don’t fear retaliation. This time it will be different. There will be a prayer base, and it will be established in love. You need not fear that this move will stop, unless people leave Me.
I will obey. I am steadfast. I am under authority, where you belong. I always did the right thing, constantly forgiving, under authority, not out on My own — safety— safely out of harms way, no matter how it looked from the outside. I was hidden. I walked the walk. Will you do the same, following in My footsteps, or will you argue that yours is a better way? …
My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.
Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
The Achan Factor — Because of one man’s disobedience the entire nation of Israel had to deal with the “Achan factor” among them before they could come under the umbrella of Almighty God’s blessings once again!
Asbury Revival, 1970: “‘Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?’ … Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘Dr. Kinlaw, I’m free!’”
The Didache (70-100 AD): Reconciliation was required to attend early church meetings! “How upside-down the ‘church’ is today.”
Benny Hester: “When God Ran” — God will RUN when we come back to Him!

If we build it He will come:
