I received this word 2 years ago.
Since then things have changed — changed considerably.
Please read the original first, then read my update of what The LORD is saying about The Open Door today, August 2021.
The Open Door
Original from August 2019.
My wife recently used a picture of a Gateway which, as I looked at it, a Warrior Angel stood in the centre of it.
Then a friend sent us this picture of another Gateway, and again, the same Warrior Angel appeared in the centre of it!
I asked The LORD what was I seeing.
“This is the ‘Door to Revival’.”
“So, why the Angel?”
“You’re not yet ready to enter this place.”
“Too many people still want it on their terms. They want to limit My Spirit. They want to control things. They’re scared of offending. Scared of upsetting the tithers — of interrupting the finances — of losing them.
They still haven’t grasped My Provision, My Timing, My Agenda. They haven’t believed My promises.”
“Revival IS COMING!” He said, “But only to those prepared for it! Only to those who have, and will continue, to pay the price.”
“In fact,” The LORD continued, “the coming Revival will define My Remnant Army, who, like Gideon’s few before them, will take every place they walk upon!”
I remembered the verse given to us a couple of months ago, Genesis 13:17, “Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.” and Joshua 1-3, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you.”
“Yes”, says The LORD, “those whom I appoint and use to steward Revival, shall reap a vast Harvest and will receive their reward from Me, but those who seek and have Revival only on their terms, shall receive all the reward they shall ever get from men.”
“So how long will your Angel stay in the Gateway, LORD”
“Until I tell him to stand aside and allow you through!” said The LORD. “Get yourselves ready! and in a very short while I will send My Spirit with the revival you seek.
Then you will see My Glory. Then you will see Signs, Wonders, and the Miracles you seek.
Then you will reap the promised Harvest,” says our God.
Now hear the Word of The LORD in 2021.
The Open Door — August 2021
The LORD took me back to the same Open Door that He’d shown to me two years ago.
As before, a Warrior Angel stood in the centre of it. Now, however, the Warrior Angel stood aside as I approached, as if ushering me through the Door to whatever lay behind it.
As I got closer, I saw Fire — fiercely burning Fire — almost a furnace, in fact.
As I looked closer, I could see that it wasn’t real fire however. Rather it was the impression of fire.
I was seeing it spiritually rather than literally. It was the Fire of Revival — Holy Spirit Fire.
The Angel spoke to me. “This is indeed Revival Fire, the same Fire that you saw from a distance the other day.”
(See my Facebook post here — or see the extract below.)
“This is now the open Door to Revival, ready and waiting for you to step through. The LORD‘s Fire of Revival is burning fiercely and awaits you to join Him in the sacred work of stewarding His Revival — one such as has never been seen before.
The Word of God tells the parable of the King’s supper in Luke 14:15-24, this is become reality in this Revival.
Verse 21 is your key verse in this Scripture:
“…. Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.” This revival will call and bring in many who would not previously have even looked at The Church!”
With this, the Angel disappeared and I heard the familiar gentle voice of The LORD say, “Call My People to Revival.
The fields are white unto Harvest but the labourers are few. I AM seeking those who are willing, and I will use them all mightily for My Kingdom.”
So I leave you with this today — Come, whoever is willing, and The LORD will use you in the great harvest.
Come, The LORD calls you, and whom He calls, He equips — so don’t worry what you can do for Him because He will be with you and He will enable you to do things beyond anything you can imagine.
“15 Now when one of those who sat at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, “Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!”
16 Then He said to him, “A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, 17 and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready.’ 18 But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused.’ 19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused.’ 20 Still another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ 21 So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.’ 22 And the servant said, ‘Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.’ 23 Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste my supper.’ ”” Luke 14:15-24
” Away From Me, I Never Knew You
Not for those with no stomach for hard to digest truth.
I spent a long time with The LORD today and I humbly submit these Words of serious warning to The Church at large. This doesn’t apply to all, but it certainly does apply to many. Revelation 3:16 and Matthew 7:22-23 are the relevant scriptures.
The conversation I had with The LORD was somewhat terse, but this is the gist of what was said…..
So, for now, the great lock up has gone. We are more free to meet together, to worship, than we have been for a long time. Yet what does The Church do — it turns straight back to the same old same old with never a thought of anything else.
When is The Church in Britain going to wake up?
If this past eighteen months hasn’t woken us up, then it seems that nothing will! We are on the cusp of the greatest revival ever known or even imagined, yet the vast majority of churches have turned right back to the ‘community social club’ that they’ve always been.
Uninspired by Holy Spirit, indeed rarely even trying to acknowledge Him, everything is back to ‘normal’. Rarely preaching much that is relevant to preparing the flock for the coming revival, or end times, or return.
Even more rarely welcoming an evangelist, or a healing ministry; and definitely not welcoming a prophet or deliverance ministry — after all any of these might give people ideas way above their current level of understanding.
The gifts of the Spirit are eschewed and put down the moment they start to show themselves. Indeed, in many denominations, these gifts are deemed ‘demonic’ and firmly repelled.
The Church keeps the flock on milk and never feeds them meat. Exceptions are very rare.
So, I asked The LORD, almost despairingly, about this. “This is a spirit of stubbornness and disobedience — rebellion by any other name.” He said, “My Church is in rebellion!
Until My Church realises its true condition, and repents, there can be no change.
Much of My Church is lukewarm, worse the that — tepid and getting colder, and I will vomit them out of My Mouth!
They shall have no place in Revival, no place at the Marriage Supper of The Lamb, and I will say to many of them, ‘away from Me you evil doers — I never knew you!’”
You, watchman, warn them, for their very souls are in danger! I don’t want to lose any of them, but I will hold the leaders responsible for not leading the flock, and I will hold many others responsible for their complete lack of discernment.
Unless they repent soon, it will be too late and I will pass them by — they shall not have any part in Revival, and they shall even say that ‘this Revival is not of God but of the devil!’”
I felt The LORD’s sadness and His heavy heart as He spoke these words. He finished by repeating Words I’ve heard many times before in a different context. “Tell them, and keep telling them until they heed My Warning and repent!”
This I do now!
Having finished this Word, The LORD then gave me a P.S. I heard The LORD say to me, “Watchman, lift up your eyes to the horizon. What do you see?”
“I see Fire all across the horizon, LORD!”
“Exactly! It is the Fire of Revival and it’s headed your way! Prepare My People!” ”
