This past three to four years, I have been in a deep spiritual battle over the topic of Revival in The United Kingdom, but Revival in Wales in particular.
In September of 2019, we were about to sign on the dotted line and take rented accommodation in central Wales.
Suddenly, we both had the same message from The LORD — “Do not move to Welshpool!!”
This was the third or fourth time The LORD had spoken to us both simultaneously over an important moment in our lives.
A week later I was in hospital, shortly to be diagnosed with myeloma, a blood cancer. The testimony of my healing is still remarkable, but is, in the context of this article, irrelevant!
We thought Wales, as far as our ministry was concerned, was a dead duck. God had different plans!
Through Dreams and Visions, and through the Words of two other prophets, we discovered that The LORD had, and still has, work for us in Wales.
We are to uncap certain old Wells of Revival and more. Then, the Word of The LORD came to me one day, quite recently, when I heard in my spirit, these Words: “Yours isn’t about what’s happening now — it’s about what’s coming.
It’s about Holiness, Repentance, Intercession, releasing the river, uncapping wells, preparing the way for, and bringing — Revival!”
I was having a conversation with a friend in Wales about how hard the Welsh Church has become with regards to Revival.
He commented very wisely to me that, “It needs to be someone who isn’t steeped in the past Welsh heritage to speak into this land. The water (in many of those old wells) is stagnated due to pride. This new move is coming out of humble hearts and is being spoken out by humble hearts.”
I responded, “This can only be a good thing. Over the last 20+ years I’ve discovered, sadly, that the centuries-old distrust of anything English ,is still alive and well.
I’ve been told that — because I’m not First Nation (Welsh) — I have no authority in Wales.
I’ve been told that I’m not a Guardian of Revival in Wales — they are. And here’s me thinking that God had that job LOL.
Anyone — other than an Englishman — is accepted quicker! It’s sad. Having said that, The LORD has called me as a well digger and Revival facilitator to Wales, including the reopening of some old wells — not all, only some.
That I’m English and a prophet, marks me in Wales, even though many ordinary Christians accept me, much of the leadership is wary.
So, foreign nationals coming in will be accepted far quicker than me. No, I’m not bitter or angry — more puzzled as to why The LORD picked me?
I’m glad He did as I’ve always had a God-given love for Wales and her people. We’re just waiting on God to show us what to do, where to do it, and when. We’re ready.”
With that, The LORD gave me this fresh revelation and a Word for Wales.
“Wales, Wales, land that I love even more than you do, there is a spirit of pride, a spirit of rebellion, and a nationalistic spirit that I AM about to break from you in order to allow My Holy Spirit to bring Revival back to Wales once again.
I AM bringing My Holy Spirit to Wales DESPITE you, DESPITE your rebellion and your resistance, for your future and for coming generations.
You are NOT the Guardians of Revival as some of you claim — I AM!” says The LORD.
“In your fervency to ‘protect Revival’, or at least its memory, you have allowed your individual and yes, your national pride to overlook so much that is sinful in My Sight.
I have identified the centres of witchcraft throughout Wales, and I have identified certain witches and warlocks whom you, the Church in Wales, because of your inattention to My business, you have allowed them to usurp much power, and you have allowed them the freedom to possess the land on behalf of their master, Satan!
I AM appointing, anointing, and revealing to My servants, the prophets and intercessors, where to tear down their foul temples, to repossess the land, and to facilitate Revival among you wherever you will receive it.
Wales, it is time for repentance.
I have given authority to those whom I The LORD, have chosen, to take back that which the enemy has stolen.
I have given the anointing and authority to those I have chosen, not necessarily those whom you choose, who will help you to realise your long-cherished dream of Revival returning to the green and pleasant land of Wales!
I will bring Holy Spirit Revival back to Wales DESPITE your resistance, for the sake of your children — and they shall play a significant role in Revival DESPITE all you prejudices and antipathy!
Revival IS MINE!” says The LORD,
“WALES IS MINE TOO!”
