The following are excerpts from Chapter 2 of my new book, Prophetic Forecast, Volume 3.
If you study the history of revival, you will find that many of the revivalists we hold in high esteem from the past actually suffered a great deal of rejection from the established Church of that day.
This is common, and even Jesus was rejected by the majority of people, especially religious leaders and even His hometown. We can expect some degree of rejection for carrying the message of Jesus.
Heavenly Encounter: The Stones Others Rejected
This is from my heavenly journal, an encounter I had on May 3, 2017. In this encounter, the LORD was speaking to everyone, [including you] not just to me…
Most of the spiritual encounters I have involve the LORD directing me to a place in the Bible. As I read it I begin to have visions, and they are quite real and detailed.
Though I am not physically there, I sometimes can smell, taste and feel things as if they were real. On this day, the LORD directed me to Psalm 118.
“The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes,” Psalm 118:22-23 NKJV.
[Beginning of Encounter]
… The Lord said, “You (referring to all of us) are the cornerstone that the builders from previous generations have rejected.
This is the new Great Revival of the outcasts that many people have been rejecting for many years.” … I could now see there was a very large stone that had the words written on it, The Great Revival.
The Lord said, “The stone the builders rejected has become the stone that many of my people have rejected.
But you have cried out for it day after day and gave your life even in the face of death. When you began to cry out for this, Satan sent all that he had to try to stop you and your generation.
But you did not give up crying out day and night for this revival to come. You did not back down, though the attacks against you were sometimes beyond what you could bear.”
The Great Revival Stone
We began to worship the Lord and give thanks for all that He had done for us. Then the Lord invited us to stand on the stone marked The Great Revival. It was a very large, smooth, rectangular shaped platform.
I could suddenly see those who are still in darkness, but whose names have been prepared for the Lamb’s Book of Life.
These are the ones who were rejected over the last few decades. This is the Billion Soul Revival and the Ezekiel 34 lost sheep. I could hear them crying out, “O Lord, save us!”
I wept bitterly and said, “Lord, don’t hold back any longer. Send Your workers into the harvest field and open up the gate for salvation, that these people may enter.”
A New Gate Opened
Then I saw a golden gate open that had been previously shut. This was the Psalm 118 Gate of the Righteous that led to salvation. From this gate, the workers of the harvest and the gathering angels began to pour in.
I could see the workers begin to assemble. These were the ones who have been called to be part of this new move of God.
One angel standing there said more words from Psalm 118: “This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. And this is the stone other builders rejected but it is now becoming the chief corner stone…”
We all knew that the gate that opened was the gate for which those who had been rejected by many Christians could now come in to salvation… Preparations were now underway, and I knew that we would start to see things happen quickly.
[End of Encounter]
What Are You Waiting For?
God is opening a new spiritual gate for those who have been waiting to be released into their destiny.
This is a time to call out to the Lord and ask Him to open opportunities for you.
Possibly, you have felt held back or rejected, or even forgotten by the LORD. This is the time for you to come into agreement with the LORD’s plans.
Get ready to move forward, as things are going to start happening quickly!
