The LORD broke into my thoughts just as I was reading about God’s Generals.
“It’s good to be reminded of the mighty men and women of yesteryear — but where are these giants of Faith today?
Where is there a Lake, a McPherson, a Seymour?
Where is the passion of Wilkerson, the anointing and presence of Wigglesworth, or the miracles of Branham or Allen?
Where is the convicting preaching of Bonnke, Booth, Wesley, or Edwards?”
He paused while I considered my response. It came, meekly, “I don’t know LORD, but you do.”
“The time is coming when My people will need an Anointing such as those of yesteryear carried.
The time is coming — indeed it is here now — when I will anoint new young warriors who will stand My Church on her head!
They will shock, they will upset, they will arouse the spirit of those who hear them.
Most of all they will snatch souls from the enemy.
Such will be their anointing, such will be My presence with them, that they will see the miraculous in their ministry.
Yet they will remain humble, for I AM also raising older, wiser Mentors for them to keep them grounded!” says The LORD.
“I AM raising a young generation of Generals, guided by an older generation of Mentors who will be effective in Revival; who will become the soul winners of this generation.
I AM raising many of these young men and women for they have the fitness and the stamina to sustain the battle.
Their Mentors shall be their Aaron and Hur to uphold them, to encourage them, and to teach them.”
I asked, “Will it only be youngsters LORD, or is there an anointing for older folk too?”
I heard The LORD chuckle.
“No!” He replied — He knows my own heart, “There is plenty of this Anointing to go round.
I will use older folk too — those with energy and a willingness.
But mostly I will anoint younger people — even the very young, teenagers, even pre-teens — but these will be only few.
You will know those who carry My Anointing by My Presence, by their love of Me and by the signs and wonders that accompany them.
They will also carry a wisdom and understanding beyond their years, and they will not chase fame nor fortune.
Humility will be their hallmark!”
The LORD closed with this, “I will lay My Spirit upon whom I will lay it.
Many will claim it but only few will receive it.
This is for the coming move of My Spirit, and for Revival.”
New Generals are coming with power, with signs and wonders, and with Revival!
