An odd thing to hear, isn’t it? Yet there it was again, “You have waited long enough!”
Pentecost is just around the corner, and in my minds eye I saw the upper room in Jerusalem, crowded with people, probably something over 200 of them — 120 men plus women and a few children.
It turned into an open Vision.
I saw groups talking, one or two groups praying. There was a hum of conversation, voices, occasional laughter, a social scene but a more serious one.
Suddenly a different sound began rising — like a wind blowing. People began to quieten as the sound of wind rose steadily.
As the people became silent, looking up to see where the sound was coming from. It grew and grew, filling the air with the sounds of rushing wind, until it sounded more like a full scale storm.
Outside the building, passers by could hear it too and were stopped, staring open mouthed at the building where all this commotion was apparently happening.
Suddenly, amid all the wind noise, tongues of fire appeared. People in the room gasped, some cried out in alarm, but no one panicked.
A quiet still peace descended as the flames separated and seemed to settle on every person present, man woman or child.
Then a moments lull, almost silence, followed by joyous cries and seeming pandemonium as everyone started speaking out loud in strange new languages — unknown to any of the speakers.
Outside the building, many people could hear the shouts and cries from upstairs and an amazing thing started to happen. Each one could hear someone inside the upper room speaking in his or her own language!
Pentecost had arrived — and the world was forever changed by The Holy Spirit’s very public arrival.
THAT’S when I heard The LORD say, “You have waited long enough!
I AM sending My Holy Spirit in greater power than you’ve ever even dreamed or imagined.
I have spoken to you before about a second Pentecost — not like the original but an outpouring nevertheless that you will marvel at.
It will knock you off your feet and you will only be able to prostrate yourselves before Me and cry out for Mercy!
Miracles will just spontaneously begin to happen and men will count themselves cursed who do not experience some of My Power on that day!”
I could do nothing but Praise Him and give Him Glory as I experienced this new open Vision. Now I wait in eager anticipation to experience it again in real time!
I know Pentecost this year is just a week away and I’m approaching the day with faith and hope overflowing!
I’m a bit of a wreck right now! But all Glory to God!
\0/ Thank You LORD!
I testify to all of this and I pass it on to you all in humility, fear, and trembling with excitement
