The Lakeland Revival - 'Battle Royal...'

Hi guys,

I haven't written about this at all. And tonight, I was inspired to finally crack open the vault a bit.

It's wild - we've been here over a year now. July 3 was one year.


The 'Lakeland' Revival started not too long after we got down here. Well, I guess it's only been going for a couple months now.

The funny thing is - people from Oregon are asking us about this thing. That means - it's SO big, that it's spread across the U.S. In fact, people from all over the world are actually flying here (to Lakeland) to be a part of this revival. A person, whom I just won an ebay item from, included a note about it in her shipment to me. WOW!

The part that cracks me up is - we've never even gone to the thing. Why does it start, right here in Lakeland, after we arrive? It's odd. It makes no sense. I'm not claiming any part of it, not at all. It has nothing, at all, to do with me or us - it's just strange that it would happen here.

I don't know which side of the camp you sit on, as far as this revival goes - if you're thinking it's the next 'Big Thing' from God, then you'll definitely want to take a look at some of these thoughts:

Hopefully, just maybe, it'll make you think about the situation a little bit.

Whatever happened to long-term service and daily walking with God?

Does it take a "Revival" to peel us away from our TV's and focus on God?
Prayer? What's that? Oh, that's what we do before eating if we remember.
Fasting? That's when we get home late for dinner. :P

Have fun with your revival thing.

On a side note, after reading the comments on the site that you posted, maybe you should move out of "lighting-range" of that place.

I had not heard of the stuff down there, but have seen the guy's name before. Some scarry stuff if they are claiming to be prophets and such. There are 2 tests of a True Profit if I remember correctly: 1) do they teach in-line with the Word of God. 2) Can you kill them.

The Mormons have been claiming crazy stuff for years, and much of it never panned out.
