From: "REVIVAL List" <prophetic@...>
Date: Sat, 03 May 2008 10:30:31 +1200
NOTE from A. STROM (2006):  I too have sensed the strong 
possibility that there may occur "two Revivals" almost together - 
one true and the other counterfeit. So I was very interested to hear 
the below vision.

-by Patrick Ersig.

Here is the account of a vision from God that I received regarding 
true and counterfeit revival. This vision occurred on March 4th 2006.


Everything was black and I saw one person walking at a semi-brisk 
pace. Not fast walking, but a slight cadence above normal pace. 
Walking with purpose. This person was walking straight and sure - 
upright and strong - solemn and serious, like a revolutionary  - a 
warrior - a light to darkness. I then saw a couple more people and 
then others in the distance and they were bright and shining 
against the blackness that was all around. They all walked the 
same way - solemn and serious and the Lord spoke and said, 
"These are my remnant who are walking in holiness, righteousness, 
obedience, brokenness and utter submission to MY WILL - watch 
what I am doing Patrick." Then I saw the individuals begin to unite 
in small groups of two to three at first and then more came and the 
groups grew to five and even ten and the light intensified greatly. It 
was beautiful like a sunset over the mountains or a sunrise on the 
ocean, a rose in full bloom. What I saw next made me burst into 
tears and sobs to the point that I couldn't continue to describe what 
I was seeing. My wife keep saying "What?!, what is it? What to do 
you see?!" After a few  minutes a was able to control the weeping 
to explain what I saw happening. As the Lord was drawing together 
His remnant into these small groups the power God came down - 
like in the book of Acts - the lame were walking, the blind were 
seeing, the deaf were hearing, (literally and figuratively) and 
persecution fuelled the fire! This end time HOLY and RIGHTEOUS 
remnant of serious and solemn warriors and revolutionaries walked 
in the deep darkness of America and her backslidden lukewarm 
churches with apostolic glory and power not seen since the book 
of Acts - to proclaim the true Gospel of Jesus Christ - repentance 
and holiness and freedom from sin! 

The Lord spoke and said, "This is the revival that I am bringing 
about and it starts with the individuals who have been called out to 
personal revival and are walking straight and sure - upright and 
strong - solemn and serious, like revolutionaries, warriors, lights to 
darkness. My remnant is walking in holiness, righteousness, 
obedience, brokenness and utter submission to MY WILL and I am 
drawing them together."

Then the vision switched.

Now I saw what looked like a dimly lit movie or a video shot with 
poor lighting. I saw clips of people dancing and shaking. I saw 
people falling down, shouting, jumping, and singing. There were 
huge multitudes rather then the few and many, many were coming 
in large groups that filled large auditoriums and stadiums instead 
of small groups of individuals being drawn together. Even some of 
the lights that were in the first part of the vision were drawn to this 
part of the vision. I saw dancing and clapping, shaking, shouting, 
strong and powerful emotionalism and sensationalism.  Soulish 
and fleshy spirits claimed to be the Holy Spirit. Great miracles 
abounded - signs and wonders. People proclaimed, "This is the 
revival we have been waiting and praying for!! -This is the revival we 
have heard prophesied!!! - This is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit
- a great move of God!" But the Lord spoke and said, "Patrick this 
is not from me - this is from Satan - it is a counterfeit!! And many 
will be fooled and tricked by this clever deception from the enemy!"

Then the vision switched again.

Now I saw both visions side by side - split screen, so to speak. 
They both grew in intensity at an equal rate - as the true would 
grow in power, the false would grow in numbers and as the true 
would grow in numbers, the false would grow in false signs and 
wonders. The Lord spoke and said, "This is not a vision of the
future, but this has already begun and will grow as the days pass. 
I am doing this now and the enemy is coming against it at this very moment."


The Lord is bringing about an end times revival of which the like we 
have never seen and it begins with you. The Lord is calling you to 
be separate, to holiness and righteousness unto the Lord and to 
walk in obedience and utter submission to His will. Be free from sin, 
be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect, be dead to flesh and 
alive IN Christ. Walk sober and solemn and serious before the Lord 
with a reverent and holy fear of God. If you are looking and waiting 
for some big corporate outpouring of emotionalism and signs and 
wonders you are going to miss the coming revival. The revival starts 
with you! Seek the Lord and press into Him closer everyday. Allow 
the Blood and Grace of Jesus to break the bonds of your flesh and 
produce Holy and Righteous living in your life. Ask the Lord to show 
you what it is in your life that is keeping you from that which is
perfect - no matter how small or how painful; ask the Lord to expose 
everything that is keeping you from being closer to Him and bring 
Glory to Him and His kingdom and deeply renounce all that He shows you. 

Live your life as a living sacrifice - a living drink offering poured out 
before the Lord for His glory and honor. There are many things that 
are cultural, societal and religious that keep us separated from God 
and walking in His Spirit. Pray for God to bring these things to light 
and put them to death no matter how hard it may be. If you don't 
realize that the revival the Lord is doing begins with you individually, 
then you are going to miss it! The Lord is calling you today, repent 
for your lukewarmness and your lackadaisical attitude toward sin in 
your own life and those who are perishing and plunging into hell all 
around you everyday! The Lord is calling you today to allow the 
Blood of Jesus and the grace of God to produce holiness and rivers 
of righteousness in your life that you maybe salt to a decaying 
world and light to the darkness that prevails. What will you do? The 
Lord is calling you right now to make up your mind to love Him with 
all your heart, mind, soul and strength, take up your cross, die to 
self and follow HIM - forsaking ALL and seeking after Him with all
that you are and have. Come out and be separate in holy, righteous 
obedience unto God!

WARNIG - DO NOT be fooled by these sensual, emotional 
counterfeits that are and will be popping up, that these people and 
churches call "revival". IT IS A TRICK FROM THE ENEMY! When 
you hear that "revival" has broken out in the next town or the next 
state or even in your own city - please remember this warning. 
There will be much singing and dancing and shouting and many 
things will sound as though they are true. There will be great surges 
of emotion that will cause people to fall down and jump and shout, 
cry and weep but this is not from God. Many will be crying out in 
joy, "Peace, peace".   But God's Servants will have discernment 
above and beyond any gift, and a willingness to die than lie -
despite the increase of signs and wonders from all of the 
counterfeit moves around them in the 'churches'. If the "revival" you 
are in is not serious and reverent, holy and righteous, and the Love 
and reverent fear toward God are not the only things you see, then 
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, and warn everyone you know. These spirits 
are strong and extremely powerful - get out of the building and don't 
be fooled by the signs and wonders. Please, I am begging you to 
remember this, for I know that there will be many who are fooled 
and even (if possible) drawn away from the real to the counterfeit, 
but I also know that there will be some who read this warning and 
remember it and are spared. The true revival army will look like 
small bands of revolutionaries or Special Forces with an end
times mission to complete and Satan's counterfeit will resemble a 
band of wild Indians or tribal warriors dancing shouting battle cries. 

The true revival army will attack the enemy at its stronghold, sin - 
their mission will be the souls of men through the power of the Holy 
Spirit - they will be concerned with setting people free from the 
bondage of sin through the message of the cross and will watch 
strongholds of sin topple. Satan's counterfeit will go after places
and methods of sin - they will try to legislate morality and get laws 
changed, which results in forced morality and no salvations. God's 
army will seek to save that which is lost in the streets and alleys - 
Satan's army will try to change the laws to prevent sin but result 
in the salvation of no one. "Whosoever loves his life shall lose it.  
Whosoever loses his life for MY sake, shall find it."

Satan you are on notice! God is preparing a revival army that is 
going to tear down the strongholds of your kingdom and Jesus is 
preparing a bride for Himself that is spotless and pure! 

God is calling to make a decision right now - what will you do?!
