Tomorrow we will resume the meetings that have come to be known as The Santa Rosa Fire. We are sobered by the fact that we must pursue this act of God with total abandon . Yes, our plans for this summer have been interrupted, but many of Satan’s plans for Northern California have been devastated.
Everything within me tells me that I am facing the greatest manifestation of God that I have ever seen. I am being warned to be prepared for power and glory to invade the next 4 meetings beyond anything this ministry has ever known.
Just consider these facts:
Gifts of the Holy Spirit have called out conditions in bodies with greater depth and force than ever before. The Holy Spirit said “there is a man with hepatitis C, diabetes and kidney disease, tell him he is being healed.” Days later that man returned beaming with health and glorifying God for his miracle.
A precious woman sat in agony with a host of diseases. Again, the Holy Spirit spoke about 14 ailments in her body. She was stunned. Mechelle and another lady laid hands on her and she testified that power surged through her body.
Last night, a man came hobbling in on a walker ravaged by terminal bone cancer. The Holy Fell on him and he took off around the building!
-Several churches are rallying together like an army. This is not token unity but a heartfelt oneness that permeates the hearts of men and women of God. God has altered the spirits of leaders here. They do not care about recognition or even church growth. It is their conviction that the city must be blessed, and the cry of hurting souls must take president over private ambition. Offers of help keep coming in with no strings attached. Indeed there is a supernatural cooperation at work here!
-Reinforcements are coming from other parts of America: People are flying in from Florida just to partake of the Fire of God! Teams will be dispersing through the city to give loving witness to the power of the Gospel. Roger Webb, a precious man of God from Ignited Church in Lakeland Florida flew out to be a part of the Fire. He was electrified and is returning for 4 more days to hit the streets and bring in the harvest.
Reports of yet more miracles continue to pour in. It seems that not an hour goes by without a testimony of someone being born again or healed. One of the most wonderful results has been the restoration of backsliders. You see, Santa Rose experienced a great spiritual wound that left many believers scattered. Now God is tenderly gathering them in and restoring their destinies.
People have been set to prayer: Matthew Henry said, “when God wants a revival, He sets His people to prayer.” A vast number of intercessors are bearing this revival up before the throne. Through the blog at our website nearly 25,000 people have read about the revival and vast numbers are praying for this to flare up and touch all of the West Coast!
The stage is set for the greatest week in the history of this ministry. Only God knows how many souls will be saved or what manner of miracles we will see in the next few days. What will happen when the intensifying cry for revival in the hearts of these people collides with the aggressive love of God? Only Jesus knows but one thing is certain, it will transcend anything we have seen before.
It is now or never. While we all rejoice at the breakthrough, we are all very conscious of the solemn ramifications of this moment. We know that Santa Rosa is only one of many places in America that is experiencing this same kind of intervention.
The most chilling question that I have asked God is why now? It is because America is at stake and revival is no longer a wispy solution but imperative to our survival. This is why we are all in. This is why we must surrender to this ongoing miracle in Santa Rosa and see it through!
