“A season of Samsons arising! I AM pouring out The Spirit of Power on your children!”
“Then Samson called to The LORD, saying, “O LORD God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, o God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the philistines for my two eyes!” Judges 16:28.
As I was preparing to speak last weekend, I was feeling very weak and incapable of doing what God called me to do.
On a night of wrestling with The LORD for what He wanted to pour out to the people, and feeling as if I was literally so weak I could not stand, The LORD began to speak to me that this was the whole point of me being there.
He said, “This is a season that My People will understand that in their weakness, I AM made strong!
This is a season, when like Samson, as I AM showing them their weakness, that My Grace will be sufficient for them and then when they stand to do what I’ve called them to.
They will understand that it is not themselves who will accomplish the greatest feats that the world has ever seen — but it is I who do these things in them!
Then and only then, will I get all the Glory for what is about to happen all over the world!”
“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 NKJV.
“Not by might nor power — but by My Spirit!”
In this season that we have been through Covid, through a fraudulent election, through a time of unbelief, untruth and persecution from the enemy and even now are still going through, God has been drawing us to draw on His Strength.
There are many things that The Church is going to face in the days ahead, and our Faith must not be in our own strengths, our own power, or our own programs and props and even including what we have relied on in past seasons.
Everything we have relied upon in past seasons, like Samson relied upon his strength that he received from being a Nazarite, and like our strengths we have from certain disciplines that we think has carried us in past seasons, is being shattered!
Our Papa God is bringing us into a place in this season when we will totally be dependent upon His Might and Power.
“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of The LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says The LORD of hosts.”” Zechariah 4:6 NKJV.
God’s Spirit will bring Power to a new generation of leaders
I came up in The Church in the early 80’s as ‘The Jesus Movement‘ was ending and I was blessed to have a pastor at that time who was a strong spirit-filled man of God who was unashamed of the power of The Holy Spirit.
His wife taught a little Bible study group I was in, and there I discovered my gifts and calling. This Church allowed us to move in our gifts and I learned there, that truly that His Power and Might was all I really had and was truly what I was born to walk in.
I have never been the same. But I have watched over the past 40 years, as even many Charismatic Churches have other denominations that have replaced the power of The Holy Spirit and His Gifts with programs and ‘seeker friendly’ services in exchange for the true Power of The Holy Spirit.
This has left many young and old alike in a place of going to Church on a weekly basis, going home starving for something to fill their hungry souls — including me.
God is about to change all of that!
God is now speaking to many of The Generals of The Faith and seasoned veterans in His Kingdom to bring a new generation back to the raw power of The Holy Spirit!
Saints of God and leaders, we must go back to preaching and teaching about The Power of The Holy Spirit!
Kingdoms are falling right now, including the kingdoms we’ve built with our own plans and seeker-friendly schemes.
They are not working folks! If they had, the whole world would be saved by now!
There are many whom I have called, who have fallen away, because they did not see The Power of God demonstrated!
“For My People have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me, The Fountain of Living Waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” Jeremiah 2:13.
There are young men and women out there now who were raised up in many Churches where they have not ever seen The Power of God demonstrated, or have felt what we felt and experienced in the 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s, and many have turned to drugs and eastern philosophies to fill a void.
Many have become a part of evil movements, because they want the comrardery that they have with these groups, and they feel powerful with them. Some even feel a sense of purpose in believing in things like communism, and socialism.
The Church has left a void in them and that void is a hunger for truth and a hunger for the real Power of God!
Therefore… they have gone after false God’s and those who promise power — but never deliver.
But God is in the process of changing all of that!
“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of The Spirit and of Power.” 1 Corinthians 2:4.
Many of you have prayed faithfully over a promise that God spoke over your children and your children’s children.
Many have done all they can do in the natural to get them to return from the messes that they have gotten themselves into by their own doings it seemed, but God is about to show up in their lives and fulfill that deep hunger in them as he begins to pour out his spirit on a battle weary, impoverished Church and truly on all flesh!
“But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel; and it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:and on My Servants and on My Handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my spirit; and they shall prophesy:” Joel 2:16-18.
Yes — this is that!
God promised this in Joel 2, and again in The Book of Acts.
He is going to do it again in these times we are living in!
It has already begun in many spots in the Nation and Nations! Men like Mario Murrillo and Sean Feucht are seeing The Spirit poured out in many places that have been suppressing The Church, and now God has placed a deep hunger in those that are fed up!
Your Children and Grandchildren have been grinding at the mill of lifestyles that have taken them away from The Will of God — some for many years — and you thought that they would never return to fulfill their destinies, but you kept on praying for the promise that was spoken over them!
And now, even though they have been in prisons of their own making, God is going to begin to show them where their Real Power lies and what they were born to do, “for such a time as this!”
God is going to find them in their prisons of doing the same thing over and over and tell them that, He has a Plan for them!!
Then they will begin to say, “But I have no power over the things that have kept me in this prison!” And that is when God said that He will use those who have tasted of The Power and Anointing of The Spirit in the 70’s, 80’s and so forth, to let them know that this is the way to overcoming Power and Anointing for the huge tasks that God has for them in the midst of this present darkness!
I will draw them in their weakness and in their prisons
“Yes!” says The LORD, “I AM going to draw them to Me, and in their weakness, like Samson, I AM going to give them strength to overcome the giants that are in the land, and then the greatest display of My Power and Might will be done through your children and your children’s children!
So shout the Victory you who have prayed and toiled and have believed My Word for your sons and daughters will bring in your harvest.
You have died a million deaths to see this day — and it is upon you, you elders of the land!
Be strong and hold on, for this is upon you!
Soon you will see the greatest feats done by the least of these the world has ever seen!”
“But thus saith The LORD, even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.” Isaiah 49:25.
