A case of my first book made it to India. Praise God. First of many. That is a huge breakthrough let me tell you. God did a work there to let this through.
Someone posted that Jesus didn't say to follow Christians He said to follow Him. That is partly true and I will tell you why. Even though we don't worship man, we need someone to look up to, to learn from. Jesus said to make disciples, that means there must be people that teach others. Teaching them, they are following the person teaching, (not worshiping them just following) as they are following Jesus. If that person is really following Jesus than you must following the person that is ahead of you correct? Paul said in
1 Corinthians 11:1King James Version (KJV) 11 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
A person that claims to be in ministry and doesn't have some kind of person they look up to for guidance and help is a wild stallion that only causes harm to others and the cause they are trying to help. They get angry easily and lash out in a rage. They don't listen to the ones that are over them because it's about them and what they want. They can also be called a lone wolf. They are for others as long as they get what they want. If you are truly following Jesus you are behind the ones that are ahead of you never forget that. You don't worship people, you only Jesus but you listen to the ones that He sets in leadership if you are truly following Him. If you don't, than maybe you aren't following the Jesus of the bible but the Jesus of your own creation. If you don't learn from others and have people that teach you, you often end up being a cult leader and false prophet. Do you want to do God's plan or your own?
God has had me focusing lately on getting us at RHC ready for the harvest. I really feel the need to have classes to teach us how to reap the harvest. That involves the basics and the deep things of God also. I am praying about the idea of starting an online supernatural school of ministry to train others for the harvest having different instructors teaching different things. That will help the International congregation to be ready for the harvest. God has already guided me on how to get it up so the technical side of it is done, all I would have to do is set that up. I am unclear if I should step out and do that or not now. I do know we have trained now on Sunday Night's in the service. For awhile we will not be recording the Sunday Night Services so we can train for the harvest. So we can have a safe training environment for everyone and so everyone feels at ease. Cameras tend to make people feel uneasy and I do understand that. Not having to set that up will give me time in the week to record recordings for everyone else and to have a live online service on our TV Network and to be able to take live call-ins via the phone. I will give you a time for that later.We are an international church and finding the way to do both the local and international congregation is hard. I feel God has led me this way for a while to train everyone as much as possible. Many people around the world have emailed me wanting me to start a RHC in their nation and for now there is no money or staff to do that. However we might be able to stream a live online service to those areas. They can meet in their place of meeting and I can preach to them that way. God has put that on my heart and we are already sending bibles to areas around the world. We are also starting back up the bible outreach here locally too. I am excited at what God is doing. I will keep you informed about everything. Email me if you are interested in the online supernatural school and please come out Sunday Night's. That was prophesied over me and the house awhile back and maybe this is the start of that fulfillment. We do not ordain people at this time the training would just be certificates. Ordaining people involves them going through SOZO to get delivered and to make sure they are clear of all demonic issues and free of mental issues. We don't have the staff at this time to do that. If we ordain we want to make sure things are OK in their life before we back their ministry.
Praise God, the bibles we sent to Liberia Africa was received. We sent 11 bibles to them and they where greatly appreciated. Praise God for that. We are reaching the world for Jesus. We will be sending more bibles to the world as time goes on.
Below is the pictures of the bibles and the people who got them.
Upgrades we are working on
We are currently working on some great upgrades at Revival is Here. We ordered more phones to expand the prayer-line and church phone system to make it better to reach the world. The improved phones will greatly help us reach people and has been in the works for a while now. God finally provided the phones to do it.
We are working on getting a new video software program to record the services and stream them. It will add nice graphics to the video recording and record at a better quality. It will save time also so this is a much-needed upgrade. It's expensive so hang in there until we get it. This software will work in the future also when we add more cameras. Along those lines we are working on getting a dedicated internet connect in the meeting room so we can stream the live services much better.
I am also working on the website updating the information and adding easier to read elements to it. There are currently a few more pages to update so hang in there. In the future we might make a Revival is Here Network website to network people around the world that would like to be part of Revival is Here. It will be interactive.
Everyone pray with us as we work on those upgrades.
New Upgrades We have Finished.
We noticed some noise in the audio of the services and knowing we need to do God's work the best as possible we decided to invest into removing that noise. Noise can cause a huge hindrance in people getting what God wants out of the recording. We bought several expensive power conditioners to take out that noise along with expensive shielded cables. To make sure the audio is crisp and clear for everyone listening.
I added a new social share button at the bottom of some pages and posts to make it easier to share things on the website. It will make it much easier for people who likes to share what God is doing.
A new donation system is now live that allows you to view your online donation history on the church website. When donating online you will be required to create an account on the church website. That will allow you to log in 24/7 to view your history. We have increases security on the online donation system also for your security. All by staying on the church website. Note the credit card isn't stored on the church website. For more into on that please go to the following link.
The following bible verses comes to mind thinking of the new upgrades. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Mark 11:23 NKJV
14 For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea. Hab 2:14 NKJV
Tomorrow night's service is going to be amazing. God is still on me from last Sunday. Revival is Here Church has entered into a higher level of God and His Glory. I feel it all over me even now. I can't wait to experience God even stronger at church tomorrow. Folks, you need to be there and experience God. He is really doing something powerful at Revival is Here Church. I am telling you God is really moving at RHC. If you are in driving distance you need to get in your car and come. If you have to take a Plane to get here it will be worth it. Don't miss out. If you have a church, you and your church come. Take it back with you to your church. Come catch what God is doing and take it everywhere you go. I have been taking it everywhere I go all week this week. I am not saying this because I am the Senior Pastor, I am telling you this because God is moving. I have never felt God so strong in a service like I did this past Sunday Night. Wow, You need to be here and get a touch. We currently meet at the Comfort Suites on E Crystal Drive in La Grange KY. Come out and experience what He is doing. Don't miss it. Come dance in the Revival. Senior Pastor, Pastor Chan Smith.
Here is a powerful endorsement for Revival is Here Church and Pastor Chan. Pastor Paul Woods, Associate Pastor at Evangel World Prayer Center in Louisville KY brings Evangel's and his endorsement and kind words. Watch and be blessed.
