Friday night June 12, 2015. The temperature at 7 PM is 106 degrees and we are in a tent. I thought that the scorching heat would kill out attendance. Instead, it becomes the biggest night, with the greatest harvest.
The city that leads California in so many categories of misery saw a great light. Living Proof is just the name of an outreach until God jumps in and makes it reality.
What healings happened that night? You name it. Cancer, diabetes, emphysema, and a host of life threatening diseases have vanished before the mighty hand of God.
Churches cancelled services to join together at the tent. They rounded up those who needed Christ or a healing miracle.
They converged on the tent at the Fairgrounds. Yuba City Mayor John Dukes opened with a mighty prayer and introduced me to the crowd. A mayor and an evangelist standing together to bring life to a city—think of that!
The harvest in Yuba City was a resounding slap in the face to experts who say American Youth want nothing to do with Christianity.
So much power radiated the Fairgrounds that for weeks lost souls and addicts came to the grounds hoping the tent was still there. We had to send workers there to harvest souls who were still coming.
Today we begin the next phase of the miracle in Yuba City. Many of you know we are in the midst of a tour of California. We said, “No more apologetic meetings. No more nights where we get together and hope that something happens. The stage is set. Prayers have bombarded heaven. There are boots on the ground and fire in hearts. There is no confusion in our goal: Win the lost and heal the sick.
We have already seen historic results in San Jose and Manteca. Today we hit Yuba City for 3 days.
Every revival has an ignition point. In Yuba City, it is The Bridge of Yuba City, led by Jim and Kristine Carpenter, and Church of Glad Tidings, led by Dave and Cheryl Bryan. It takes every last drop of faith to keep a church strong in the Yuba City/Marysville area. They did not get involved because it was convenient or even practical. It was a sacrifice based on a passion for God to heal our land. I want to thank them for their amazing act of love.
Pastor Jim Carpenter said this about the impact of Living Proof in Yuba City: “There is a dramatic shift in the atmosphere of our region. Sleepy churches have been jolted by the signs and wonders; the streets feel the change; people who were walking by the tent to go get their drugs were instead pulled inside by the unseen hand of God and delivered. This community will never be the same.”
Tonight we will go to greater and unknown heights of the Glory of God! Tonight and all three nights, Chris Burns will ignite worship and set the stage for signs and wonders.
Why you should come if you are a Christian who yearns for revival in Northern California. The impact of these nights does not end with just healing miracles. An army of love and light is forming from many churches in the area who are seeking an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is our deepest wish and expectation that the power of these nights will flow out to the entire Northern California area.
It all adds up to a simple conclusion: These are nights you do not want to miss.
