We are praying for people all over the world who are suffering right now.
The earthquake in Mexico, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, fires in the western United States … and across the Earth, there is a sense of anxiety about terrorism and violence.
People are asking me if there is a prophetic message in it all. My answer is that this is not judgment, but the birthing pains of a coming revival that is going to be the biggest move of God in history. It is upon us now and is already starting.
The enemy wants you to look at the storm and not God.
Let me encourage you though: Jesus spoke of this very season we are in. People have been expecting the Second Coming of Christ, but that cannot happen without the Billion Soul Harvest happening first. Let me show you in the Bible.
“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains,” Matthew 24:6–8 NIV.
These words spoken by Jesus are a direct reference to what is happening in the world right now. We are seeing catastrophic events of biblical proportions. This is a time to be encouraged!
“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come,” Matthew 24:12–14 NIV.
A key phrase here is “the love of most will grow cold.”
The end of the world is not necessarily going to happen the way we might think. Revival and the glory of the Lord is first returning to the Earth.
What is important right now is that you are not in fear and you do not let your love grow cold. Keep the faith and trust God during this time.
On Christmas Day 2016, I heard God say to me that something new was being conceived in the spirit. It is now September, 9 months later, and the baby that represents this new move of God is going to be birthed.
September is also the time of the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement and God is releasing something new in this season. It is not the Second Coming of Christ in the way we might think.
Yes, Jesus is coming again, but first it is in a revival.
We are praying that God will open the heavens and release the floods of His Holy Spirit and the fire of His presence upon us all! We are praying for the victims of all the recent tragedies and for repayment of all their losses.
