It’s All Warming Up!
3 Words in 1
The LORD brought this to me today as a Word for today, although it was first released a while back.
A friend sent me pictures of the sunrise at his house this morning — it was stunningly beautiful.
As I marveled at the beauty of it all, I heard The LORD say quietly, “If you think this is good, just wait until you see The Son rise over this land!”
The LORD continued, “The time is very close when I will show Myself to My People, that they may repent.
Repent their doubting, repent their rebellion, repent their lukewarmness, repent their apathy, repent their compromise, repent their immorality, repent their lack of humility, and repent their lack of love for their brothers and sisters!
When this happens, The Son will indeed arise and walk your land. He will heal, He will restore, He will Water the dry ground that you have allowed it to become.
He will repossess the land. The brightness of His riding shall attract the sinner from afar and there shall be great rejoicing as the sinner repents too and joins the throng of anointed saints.
He is about to visit you, by My Holy Spirit, and awaken the land.
A second Puritan Awakening will arise!
The mantles of Edwards, Wesley, Whitefield, Moody, Booth, Seymour, Woodworth-Etter, Mcpherson, Campbell, Graham, Bonnke and others will all be manifest among the generation I AM raising for this moment.
The shaking I have warned about through My Prophets is about to reach a crescendo and many a house of cards will topple.
Does not My Word say that, “Judgement shall begin in The House of God”?
So it shall begin very soon!
Call the sinners inside The Church to repentance first, before you call those outside. The Son shall arise upon all of mankind — but upon My People first!” says The LORD Jehovah!
“Sonrise is coming just as surely as sunrise. His appearance shall be stunning and shall cast fear among those who have abused My trust!” says The LORD.
“But, He comes to save, to restore, to heal, and to bring hope!”
This Word was brought back to mind this morning.
At first, I’d forgotten all about it. In fact, although I’d remembered the tag line I’d forgotten that I’d written it up. Here it is then from April 2010.
The LORD reminded me this morning of a Word I heard the other day. He said, “I AM taking the Candlestick away from the big Churches and the big ministries, and I AM giving it back to the little Churches – the little people.”
The LORD also said to me today that there is coming a day when He will ask us, “What did you do with The Light I gave to you?”
Serious words. Serious question.
The Word of God says this in Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
How many Churches do you know, where they have every social and service activity under the sun?
They have ladies groups, men’s groups, seniors groups, youth groups, and children’s groups. They have mum and toddler club, lunch club, after school club, wives club, singles club and so on.
They have Bible Studies, evening and day time Prayer Meetings, Sunday Schools, weekday fellowships – the list is almost endless.
Who are these activities for?
I believe that one of the great deceptions and diversions that Satan has made is to turn the Church into a kind of social glee club.
I believe he has so turned us towards world thinking and busyness that we have forgotten to keep doing the Fathers business
We seem to spend so much time on our “Christian Activities” for the people already inside The Church who we have forgotten to do those things in The Great Commission, for those outside The Church.
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”” Mark 16:15-18 (NIV)
The Candlestick is The Gospel — it is all about Jesus, who said He is The Light of The World.
The LORD is taking that Candlestick away from the big Ministries, the big Churches, those who are so busy with their own and the enemies own activities on behalf of their own people that they have forgotten to put their light up high for all outside The Church to see.
Let me re-quote what The LORD said: “I AM taking the Candlestick away from the big Churches and the big Ministries — and I AM giving it back to the little Churches — the little people.”
He also said to me that there is coming a day when He will ask us, “What did you do with The Light I gave to you?”
He showed me that we are “little Church”, and we are “little people.”
The Candlestick is the light of His Gospel. It’s our job to make sure our light shines and when it does, unsaved people will be drawn to it like moths round a light bulb.
They will want to know what it is we have — but they don’t have.
What will we say when people ask?
We may only have the one chance and we must simply take it.
Okay then — what or how will you answer when He says to you,
“What did you do with The Light I gave to you?”

It’s All Warming Up!
It’s ‘waiting time’!
Has anyone else noticed the rise in spiritual temperatures of late?
The presence of The Holy Spirit in our meetings is becoming more obvious, more marked, and much more noticeable.
Small or large, meetings are becoming more ‘intense’ with His Presence.
Reading Kenneth Hagin’s book today, “Plans, Purposes, and Pursuits”, he remembers ‘believers meetings’ over 80 years ago when believers — men women and little children — sat still and silent for two hours or more waiting in the presence of The LORD.
This doesn’t happen today, does it?
Certainly, the closest we’ve experienced this was at a big meeting in Hull a few years ago when everything ‘froze’ for over 20 minutes. Nobody moved, no-one made a sound, even children were silent.
Those who were seated remained seated, while those standing remained standing. Not a word! We couldn’t move. We just looked at each other in awe and wonder. It was an amazing, anointed moment.
We need to start experiencing such moments again. We need, as believers, to gather in His Presence, expecting to wait on The LORD for a while — waiting for Him to lead us into the next phase of the meeting.
The results in Papa Hagin’s meetings were amazing and, although many are prophesying ‘something different to what’s gone before!’
I believe God is waiting for us to wait on Him before He’ll move very far.
I believe God wants us to ‘do it again’ — so that He can release The Holy Spirit to bring Revival.
I don’t think this is for everyone, but I do believe that some fellowships are more ready for this than others, and will see astonishing results when they do start waiting on The LORD.
It really is time to wait on The LORD!

Chris Bennett came to salvation in 1962 but didn’t begin ministry until 2007 — a late-comer! Now mandated by The LORD to prophesy and open old wells of revival in the U.K., but especially in Wales. He has also operated Healing Rooms, and worked with deliverance teams, all with his wife, Linda. Happily now doing whatever The LORD asks of them! Founder, with wife Linda, of their ministry The Upper Room Encounter.
When you relayed the Holy Spirit anointing you all in that congregation, I felt it, I could imagine it so well…thank you for sharing, we do need more moments like that and we shall have them.
I look forward to the magnificent Sonrise
