The Ministry [Life] of Reverence:
On May 17, 2020 I was in my mom's room and then I felt fire all over my body. An angel actually position my body but I did not get it. Eventually, I knew there was a message for me and I left the room (the heat was almost unbearable). I opened up my bible and to make a long story short, I asked the Holy Spirit what he wanted me to read, he said Malachi 3, and then 2, and then he said the following:

Note: When I speak about revival, it's because the Lord is speaking to me about revival, it doesn't mean that he wants you to focus on that. I've been refined, and revived already. He wants the body to focus on redemption. Please seek the Lord to find out what he wants you to should focus on. When I was in my trials & tribulations, I did not focus on revival, I focused on redemption because I knew that is what God was after.Give God what he wants, then restoration is on the way. Revival is for the lowly in spirit and contrite in heart. Some of yawl still have a prideful hearts which is why God allow trials and tribulations that lead us to needing to be revived in the first place. 

"For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. I will not accuse them forever, nor will I always be angry, for then they would faint away because of me— the very people I have created. "-Isaiah 57:15-16

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek,for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." -Matthew 5:4-6
    What else does the bible say about reverence?
    • Psalm 25:1-22 To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your loving kindnesses, For they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness’ sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. 10 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name’s sake, O Lord, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses! Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins. Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred. Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!
    • Isaiah 66:1-2 "Thus says the Lord: “Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest?
