There is an urgency about the days we’re living in.
It’s an urgency in our hearts, put there by The Father, prompted by The Son, and unctioned by The Holy Spirit!
It’s an urgency prompted by God that no-one should perish — but all may come to a knowledge and intimate relationship with Jesus.
We refer to that as our desire for refreshing, renewing, and revival. It has happened before. In the mid-1700’s under Jonathan Edwards.
In the early 1800’s under many great preachers like Charles G Finney who was one of the leaders.
It’s coming again right now — no Leaders, at least not in the Evan Robert’s or William Seymour mould — but Holy Spirit inspired and led all around the world.
We call it The Third Great Awakening!
The first under Edwards, the second under Finney et al, and, despite Wikipedia assigning the third to Wales and Azusa Street, it is generally prophesied that we are only now, in 2024, entering the third Great Awakening.
In my spirit, I see huge changes coming to The Church!
It will cease to be in the traditional building. Rather, it will be as in Acts, house to house and building to building — as in schools, community centres, even civic halls and hotel meeting room, as well as large venue or stadium events.
No longer will certain people be eschewed, frowned upon, discouraged from coming at all, or at best, seated at the back out of sight of most people.
Addicts, unemployed, homeless, down-and-outs — all will be welcomed, loved, fed and provisioned as needed.
Counselling and much other help will be available to all, including 24-hour help/support lines.
Things will be very different.
I’ve witnessed a man, in the recent past, homeless and alcoholic, life in ruins, weep outside a traditional church, too frightened to enter because, and I quote, “I don’t know what goes on in there!”
How The LORD must have wept to hear that.
Never again — it must never happen again!
The world is about to go into a period of Great Awakening like never before. People are about to discover the truth about politics and the worlds leaders — even though many will refuse to believe a word of it!
People are also about to discover that, not only is there a God, and His Son Jesus Christ, but they are about to have that God, His power and His love, demonstrated as per 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 — verse 4 in particular.
“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
This isn’t pie-in-the-sky daydreaming!
This isn’t wishful thinking!
There is redemption in God’s Word.
This is the plan and promise of The LORD God Almighty FOR HIS CHURCH, as given to many of His servants, the prophets, including me!
This is the confirmation and answer to millions of prayers offered up from all around the world. The bowls of heaven are about to be poured out!
This is Gods Word in action!
This, for want of a better word, is REVIVAL!
Awakening is coming NOW! For the next two years or so, The LORD’s Reset will manifest and we shall see great and wonderful changes.
Yes there will also be persecution, but yes, there is also Goshen for His people, redemption and salvation.
If ever there was a ‘thus saith The LORD’, this is one. ALL GLORY TO GOD!
