Try to read this blog in a quiet place because I really want what I have to say today to sink into your spirit. It is common and often overblown to hear the term revival on Facebook. It is easy to trumpet some event in its infant stage as revival. There is also a widespread tendency to hype something into being a revival just to gather the curious. I solemnly assure you that this report is none of the above.
God has hit Yuba City. This enclave north of Sacramento California is already in the throes of a new kind of visitation. When drug addicts knock on the door of the church asking to be saved, when people are saved and healed in parking lots of department stores, when people effortlessly worship for hours and time seems to stand still, when youth take control of a church and bring their parents to Christ, when limbs find instant life and cancer vanishes, when a crowd is transformed from a congregation into a seething, boiling army of compassion and outreach, you no longer have the luxury of calling it a good meeting or a momentary thrill.
This one blindsided me! I don’t even have pictures for you yet. I am glad that I do not have pictures because that tends to immediately categorize this as a cliché media event. This has a significance that cannot be ignored and must not be stereo typed. I really want to impress upon you my motivation in writing to you. I want you to be encouraged by what is happening and at the same time I want to protect the purity and innocence of this new fire in Yuba City.
Jim and Christine Carpenter lead The Bridge Church in Yuba City. After sudden growth they were forced to convert an industrial granary into a mighty center of the Glory of God. In ten days they transformed this industrial building into an outreach wonder.
They invited me knowing full well that I no longer do multi-night meetings that have a predetermined end and are not open to extending. They share my passion for mighty events that deeply alter a community. I can tell you for a fact that this time the fire broke out before I got here! I walked into the GLORY.
There is a greater significance to this than we know because Yuba City now becomes a part of a ring of fire over Northern California that we have faithfully reported to you.
A quick look at my schedule shows the explosive nature of these outbreaks over Northern California. Tonight I will speak at the Bridge as the fire continues at 7PM. Tomorrow Saturday February 23rd at 5PM we begin our first Living Proof Rally at the ARC in Martinez. Tuesday February 26th I am in Manteca for the 209 REVIVAL. Then I return to Yuba City for the continuation of this amazing outpouring. On top of all of this, we will return to Santa Rosa on Good Friday March 29th in the Friedman Event Center.
If you are coming to the Bridge tonight get there early. Be sure to bring those who do not know Christ or need healing. Be prepared for an unfiltered collision with the Glory and power of God. This is one of those occasions where words cannot do justice you simply have to be there.
Stay tuned for more from Yuba City!
7 PM tonight at The Bridge of Yuba City
