Awake Church — Division is Coming
A lady pointed me to this passage of scripture today.
“Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, against the Man who is My Companion,” says The LORD of hosts.
“Strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; then I will turn My Hand against the little ones. And it shall come to pass in all the land,” says The LORD, “that two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, but one -third shall be left in it: I will bring the one -third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My Name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My People’; and each one will say, ‘The LORD is my God.’ ” Zechariah 13:7-9.
I gasped as I read it.
Is this not a Word for the Church today?
In a season of so much division and disunity, The LORD spoke to me as I read these verses that this surely is a Prophetic Word for the Remnant Church in these times.
With so much of the Church close to, or in, an apostate state, The LORD has long planned to divide wheat from tares to separate out His Remnant who will lead the coming revival.
‘One third’ here implies to me a greater number than many have anticipated will form The Remnant.
We talk about Gideon’s 300, yet this confirms, for me, that there is a remnant in ALL branches of the Church, and that there is coming an identifiable ‘Unity of the Spirit’ of all the present denominations.
All who are baptised in The Holy Spirit and are truly Spirit filled, no matter their denomination, and who are willing to be so, will be in this Remnant!
There is a growing hunger for this baptism and many from those denominations that eschew Holy Spirit baptism shall receive it and shall be part of The Remnant.
This Remnant shall be a fiery Army of new and old apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers.
This Remnant shall walk in the full Authority that Jesus gave us, and Signs, Wonders, and Miracles shall be every day events that will draw the unsaved to The Cross of Salvation.
Awake Church, get ready, for this is nigh your doorstep this day, and it’s ALL for God’s Glory.

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!
