“And they overcame him (Satan, the Devil, the accuser of the brethren) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11 KJV


In recently returning from the North Georgia Revival at Christ Fellowship Church in Dawsonville, Georgia, I want to share what totally wrecked me. It wasn’t the miracle of cancers being healed, nor blind eyes being opened, nor deaf ears being opened, nor dyslexia being cured, nor the crippled being made whole, nor the salvations, nor the deliverance from self-mutilation, nor that they have had 80 services and baptized 9,000+ people. What has totally wrecked me is that the stronghold of offense over the area has been broken and you have several churches working together in unity to host the presence of Holy Spirit with excellence and integrity. That all of these different pastors truly love each other sincerely, and honor each other by preferring one another above their own selves. That the Pastors, Evangelists, Worship Teams, and Ministry Teams all celebrate each other instead of just tolerate, and share the responsibility of hosting the world (literally from all cross the globe) so they may have an encounter with the One True God. The Senior Pastor of the host church has only preached eight of the eighty services. When another Pastor comes to preach, his worship team has the opportunity to lead worship and his staff baptize the guests, and clean, and serve, and love like I have never seen. The other day the Senior Pastor’s wife, who oversees their global bible school, was seen with rubber gloves on cleaning the bathrooms because of the necessity, and that without complaining. I saw Pastors truly worship during worship service, I saw them on the same level as the congregation loving, reaching out and going out of their way to engage with people through conversation, hugs, and encouragement. They are all at service early and are there to engage with humanity, not waiting until 10 minutes into worship to come out into the service so their anointing won’t be tainted. The service is preceded by intercessory prayer by the whole body and not just a few select intercessors (though a smaller group of intercessors are an essential part, and were praying in a prayer room in unity with those of us in the sanctuary). I truly see the prayer of Jesus in John 17:20-23 being answered in this place. Until we learn how to love each other, honor one another and serve one another in the church family, the world will never be won to Christ. I personally have had to repent, give Jesus my hurts that were inflicted by my brothers and sisters in Christ, by my own hardheadedness, and by my own flesh and blood family. He instantly healed me in those baptismal waters, and as a result of being healed, I have humbled myself, come to the conclusion that I have been wrong, and went to reconcile with some of my brothers and sisters in Christ and asked for forgiveness and extended forgiveness (I’m not done yet). I had to repent of pride, false humility, a lack of trust that God could do what He says He can do, and a critical spirit that all are fellow strongholds to a spirit of offense. I have not shared this to promote myself as any better than any one else, but to bring the BIG PINK ELEPHANT, (the spirit of division that everyone knows exists but won’t humble ourselves so that The Lord can cast it down) in our Hopkins County Church Community to light. (Additionally, if I have offended you please call me and I will come apologize and ask for your forgiveness (270-399-0771) Until we lay down our personal agendas, our building of our own little kingdoms, our competitive spirit, our allowing the accuser of brethren to use our mouth to curse the body of Christ through gossip, un-prayed prayer requests, slander, false accusations, character assassination and flat out lies, we will never see this community (common-unity) changed to and for the glory of God. I believe that Hopkins County and Western Kentucky are poised for another great awakening, but not until we, the body of Christ get healed and become whole. If my people (us, the body of Christ) who are called by my name (us Christians) will humble themselves (admit that we have missed it) and pray (call out to the Only One who can change us and the world we live in that is in dire need of JESUS) and seek my face ( His presence and not His presents) and turn from their wicked ways (repentance since judgement must start at the house of God), THEN I (God) will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin (not the heathens’s sin, OURS) and will heal their land (revival in the body of Christ then awakening across America). The spirit of humility and unity that was preceded by repentance and reconciliation through simple, radical obedience in the body of Christ is the foundation that is hosting His presence in Georgia. Let’s pay the price to have the same in our community, will you? If enough of us will say “YES”, we have the opportunity to host the Senior Pastor, Todd Smith, of this revival to come to Madisonville to share with us the raw reality of what it cost to see what they are seeing and how it is blowing across the world. While we were at the revival last week, Dan Wallace had a dream that totally wrecked him and made me wonder. When we got to the church that morning at 7:00 which was an hour before they opened, Pastor Todd Smith pulled up and came over to talk to us since we were sitting on the tailgate of my truck hanging out. When Dan shared the dream with him, the countenance of his face changed and he stated that the dream was interesting and that we would talk later as he had to get ready for the leadership conference that we were there to attend. When he opened up the conference that morning, Todd shared how he, as a leader, almost killed the revival in its early, baby stage. When he shared how God spoke to him through a dream (which aligned with Dan Wallace’s dream), we knew that God was up to something. Later that evening Dan and I agreed that Todd needed to come to our community to share what it cost to host His presence. When I approached him to discuss the two dreams, and what we thought God might be up to, and the possibility of him coming to Hopkins County, he agreed that he just might be an agent of reconciliation to be used by the Lord to bring regional revival to our community. He immediately pulled up his calendar and gave me the only date he had available in September, which was Wednesday, the 25th. I know that this is a church service night, but revival comes with a cost. Are we willing to lay down our life so that others may live in our community? If so, please share this post, talk to other Pastors and leaders, message me, text me, also call me if you have ought against me, or if I have offended you so I can come meet with you face-to-face, and make it right. We will be sharing the two dreams at this meeting. The details are listed below, please say “YES”! In His love, and for His glory only, Tod Hill
