Back in the Spring, God spoke to me that the revival of Mike Tyson would be prophetic. That caught me off guard. Tyson has never been a godly man. Nevertheless, God speaks and moves in mysterious ways so I didn’t dare discount what God was saying.

Only a few people responded to my simple prophecy concerning this. I didn’t even understand it myself. I just knew God was using Tyson to speak to me. So, I followed the story line concerning Tyson’s announcement that he was going to return to the ring and fight again.

When the time came, I paid for and watched the match in late November.

The fight was entertaining but…I didn’t come away with anything.

The days following the fight, I pondered on it and leaned in with my ear to the Lord, hoping to hear something more. I was still unsure, other than a motivational, feel-good, comeback tale.

Then, unexpectedly, late in the night—last night—the Spirit of the Lord came on me. I experienced a vision. It was like God replayed part of the pay-per-view event, wanting me to watch with fresh eyes.

I saw the locker room door open. I saw Tyson emerge into the hallway. Then, I saw his T-shirt. One word on the front of his shirt:

As I watched Tyson walk toward the ring, in my vision, the Lord highlighted what was written on his shirt.

Now, after time spent in the Spirit, after a prophetic vision, after hearing from God, after faithfully stewarding the initial word, after time in prayer and listening…this is the prophecy I feel God has given me:

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

A major revival happened in the 90’s known as Brownsville. Coincidentally, Tyson’s fall and decline began in the 90’s. Now, Tyson is back. And although, his T-shirt didn’t really have anything to do with the Brownsville revival from the 90’s, God had already told me this was going to be prophetic. Hence, it wasn’t just Tyson emerging from that locker room. It was revival. It was prophetic that revival is about to break out. The spirit of revival that moved during the 90’s at that Brownsville church is about to walk down the aisle…AGAIN.

Also of note, Tyson’s shirt was black. Tyson is black. Tyson has always wore black. Black shorts and black shoes. Accordingly, I sense that this wave of Revival will be especially strong within the black church.

James 4:6
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

William Seymour in 1870

But, revival is always available for the humble, repentant, hungry hearts that are willing to…go after it.

Matthew 6:33
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
