Oral Roberts heard the voice of God in a vision speak to the American Lukewarm church. God said, “THERE IS A WASTING OF MY POWER, THERE IS A FAILURE TO GRASP THE END TIME. AND THE CHURCH, THEY ARE COMING TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY MORNING MOSTLY FOR THEMSELVES. AND THE PREACHERS, FOR THE MOST PART, ARE NOT REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
“THEY’RE CONCERNED ABOUT THE LITTLE GROUP THAT IS THERE, AND THEY SING THEIR SONGS AND THEY GET UP AND PREACH. WHEN 9-11 STRUCK, THERE WAS A FEAR THAT CAME INTO THE HEARTS, EVEN OF MY PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH AND OF THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. AND MILLIONS THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY OR TWO RUSHED TO GO TO CHURCH.”
When those planes of the terrorists struck the Twin Towers in New York City and they gradually came tumbling down, it was something bigger than people had ever seen, but it’s nothing in comparison to what’s going to happen in the second coming of my Son.” And so he said, “My church was not prepared to deal with that, and people came to church and then nothing much happened and they dropped back and many of them went back to their bars…”
“BUT THE PREACHERS WERE NOT PREPARED, AND MOST OF THEM DIDN’T EVEN PREACH ON IT AND DIDN’T EVEN TALK ABOUT IT BEING THE SIGN OF SOMETHING THAT’S COMING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TIMES BIGGER.”
NOW, THERE’S GOT TO BE PREACHING WITH FIRE IN THE BELLY!
THERE’S GOT TO BE AN ANOINTING OF THE HOLY GHOST. MY CHURCH HAS TO WAKE UP BECAUSE WHAT I’M REVEALING IN THIS SIGN THAT “EVERY” EYE IS GOING TO, “EVERY” EAR IS GOING TO HEAR. THEY’LL SEE THIS THING. THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT IT’S A WAKE CALL ABOUT THE SECOND COMING OF MY SON!
David Wilkerson saw a coming storm of persecution and violence. He saw devastation in New York with fire and massive death and rampant immorality. Few believed him because at that time, unemployment was less than 5% and because Disney had just taken over the seedy areas of Times Square area and made it family oriented. All of his words have come to pass.
In 1998 David Wilkerson solemnly warned the compromised American Church and instructed those with a heart for God to get out and seek God’s comfort and protection from what was coming to America.
David Wilkerson: “The majority of churchgoers today soundly reject all prophetic warnings of a coming storm. Indeed, the American church today is the most blatant “feel good” church in all of history. But, like Israel, we’re only experiencing the calm before the storm!
Likewise today, Christians by the multiple thousands are casting off the yoke of Christ, tossing aside all limits and restrictions. This attitude is prevalent in many of the books and magazines you find in Christian bookstores. It’s almost as if our leaders are saying, “Relax! God isn’t hard. He’s our Daddy, we’re all his kids, and we’re meant to have a good time. Don’t let anyone disturb your fun!”
However, he also said God gives advance warning and provides protection.
“Moreover, God is faithful to speak in times of prosperity, just before the fury of his judgment strikes. While the storm clouds are still gathering, he raises up prophetic voices all over the land. And, according to scripture, whenever a sinful nation was prosperous and at peace, God told his prophets to warn that the good times soon would end: “…the Lord hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity…” (Zechariah 7:7).
Beloved, if we’re going to face the coming storm, then we need to be prepared so nothing disturbs our spirit. And the only way to do that is to spend time in the father’s presence, beholding his face. We have to be shut in with him – on our knees – until we’re thoroughly persuaded he’s at our right hand!
God is clearly telling us, “Don’t be moved or agitated by anything you see. Keep your eyes focused on me – and you’ll retain your joy!” And according to David, Jesus testified, “…thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance” (Acts 2:28).
We always have to keep in mind, God’s only purpose in lovingly calling us back to himself is to protect us in such times of storm. Yet often in biblical history, when he gave these warnings, the people refused to listen: “He sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the Lord; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear” (2 Chronicles 24:19).
Almost always, God’s people grew weary of these warnings. This was especially true if a prophet cried out about a coming storm over a period of years, but the society only continued to be prosperous and at peace. Over time, the people simply switched off the prophet’s voice. They simply didn’t want to hear it anymore.”
Steve Hill saw vision of a coming storm that had the potential to destroy millions of Christians because of false teaching running rampant through the church. “The Lord began to speak. I trembled. The fresh, new snow represented the false teaching that is steadily falling on the ears of the body of Christ. It has been, and is, a heavy snowfall. The skiers represented believers and non-believers, trusting the resort for a safe and memorable experience. As Christians, we have been warned to be sober and vigilant (1 Peter 5:8). However, the present, awe-inspiring teachings have lulled many into a deeper sleep.
The layers upon layers of snow have been steadily covering the solid traditional truth of Christ. The truth is that foolish teaching in these days will become so fashionable even the most dedicated believer could become deceived (Matt. 24:24). It’s happening before our eyes. One spiritual leader said the other day: “You guys are old-fashioned ‘holiness,’ we are modern day ‘grace.’ You live in bondage while we can do anything we want.”
Pastors and teachers worldwide have succumbed to heretical teachings including universal reconciliation, deification of man, challenging the validity of the Word of God including His judgments, and even lifting any boundaries, claiming His amazing grace is actually “amazing freedom.” You are free to live according to your own desires. Sound familiar? “They had no king and did what was right in their own eyes” (Judges 17:6). These popular self-proclaimed ministers of the gospel are covering the “slopes” and will be held accountable for the spiritual death of millions.
Kenneth Hagin: “I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned, and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.
America’s Last Call
The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read, “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”
Then, in larger print it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say, “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the Church in these last days, and the Church will do greater things than even the Early Church did. It will have greater power, signs, and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.”
Smith Wigglesworth: “We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.
This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.
There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.
Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people that have been asking great things from God for a long time would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, who has such knowledge of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He only Who could say “Hitherto you have asked nothing.”
Oral Roberts was warning us about people who go to church only for themselves and of preachers who care nothing about reaching the world for Christ. How can we deny that this is true? We have reached the point where so many Christians are unteachable and Pastors are oblivious to the great commission.
David Wilkerson was trying to teach us that as God’s remnant in a storm of deception, violence and persecution we can be safe; we can even thrive.
Steve Hill placed a great deal of emphasis on the massive amount of false teaching that would rob the church of her preparation, blind her to the right choices she should make, and leave her vulnerable so that she alongside of the world is destroyed. But he also provided the hope that repentance and true submission to God would provide a shelter from the storm.
Kenneth Hagin was warning us that America had a final call. I believe we are at that call right now. He saw buildings burning and cities inundated by the judgment of God. However he also offered great hope that the people of God would even do greater things than the apostles did in the book of Acts.
Now listen with all of your heart, with all of your might and with zero distractions. This storm will damage every compromised carnal Christian. Jesus was calling the foolish man who built his house on the sand someone who had heard the words of Christ but would not do them. That is the key right now. All of these warnings are for Christians.
So what do you do to be prepared for this storm? What steps do we take to obey the words of warning that come to us first from the Bible and then from the prophets of God? Distilling the common threads that run through these four men’s prophecies I found these steps:
1. Stop following preachers that are weakening you, using you, and denying the coming storm.
Get out of the churches that look like nightclubs. Get away from the seductive teaching that denies hell, the blood of Christ, the inerrancy of the Bible and the urgency of the great commission. Don’t follow their teaching. For heaven’s sake do not give them any money. Do not fellowship with believers who condone drunkenness or immorality. This compromised Christianity is precisely the house built on the sand that the storm will destroy.
2. Press into God. The common thread that runs through the messages of these 4 prophets is a call to intimacy with God, and that the result of that intimacy would be a special grace and power to live through anything in the last days.
Each one of them referenced a secret place in God that was available to us that would create a force field of peace and joy and boldness that would serve to deflect every lie, every threat, and every attack.
Every one of them spoke of a level of power that would be revealed to the last breed of Christian on the earth. They describe a time of great extremes where wickedness and righteousness would ripen together.
Those who choose to press into God will embody a faith that cannot be shaken by any threat or headline. They will have a presence of God continually on their life. Not just some of the time but all of the time. Disasters will go around them and regardless of how cataclysmic the events of the world become they will be conveyed safely into the kingdom of God.
3. Enter the era of the extravagant asking. Wigglesworth’s reference to extravagant asking is a key to the final revival in the history of the world. He quoted Jesus who said “hitherto you have asked nothing, ask what you will and my father will give it to you that your joy may be full.” All of the prophets hold out a hope for America. They are trying to sober us up so that we can ask God to spare our nation. We do not have to have the fires, riots and the judgment that is well deserved.
We can ask and receive resources beyond anything we’ve ever seen before. We can preach with devastating conviction, conviction that can pierce the most heinous sins of our time. We can ask and receive signs and wonders that exceed what the apostles saw. We can watch God fill the coffers of anointed ministries beyond anything we can imagine or have ever seen before.
Finally: Truly God’s word is this, “I set before you life and death.” You can walk away from this message and continue the denial that pervades the church but I promise you this storm is coming. You can choose life, not just any life but the greatest life that God has offered any generation.
A massive number of Christians are experiencing a strange miracle. And we are discovering that this was predicted in detail.
The Holy Spirit is separating them. He has selected them for special grace and power to accomplish mighty acts at the edge of history. They will be uniquely equipped to face the sophisticated evil of our time. But it all begins by making peace with the Holy Spirit and restoring His rightful place.
Take a close look at the book of Acts and you will see the disarming down-to-Earth way that they related to the Holy Spirit. While they revered Him deeply, they had a sense of His nearness and His involvement in their day to day operation. They behaved as if He was close by and they could almost see Him. Most of all, they anticipated His instructions.
Acts 13:2 “As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. 4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.”
Millions are now hearing the same call: SEPARATE TO ME! The Holy Spirit told David Wilkerson about this coming separation and how pockets of prophetic people would huddle together across our nation. He said, “God-hungry people are saying among themselves, “This is not it. There is something more. The bigness and the sensationalism of it all has left us empty and dry. We want more. More than entertainment. More than big, showy buildings. More than a shallow celebrity gospel. We want deeper values. We want to see Jesus. We want spotless robes of righteousness. We want to go back to doing things in total dependence on God.”
Many of these people were chased out of churches that were once fiery Spirit-filled churches but went to a new format to attract outsiders. They feel punished for wanting a move of God.
They are fed up with the world system—especially when they see it operating in the church. They can’t stomach the glitzy entertainment centers anymore. They believe we have no time to play games. They are frustrated that church is catering to the lukewarm members.
They are done with ego-centric preachers with grandiose, expensive and carnal visions that having nothing to do with soul winning or revival. They accuse them of being distracted—even derailed from their first love. Disciples are abandoning “attraction” churches—something revolutionary is happening inside them. God is starting a fresh movement.
David Wilkerson explained more of what he saw coming: “God is revealing to all praying people that a glorious new work of the Spirit is about to break forth. God is going to shake everything that can be shaken. He will tear down the old political, backslidden, ecclesiastical system. He will disown the formal, super-church structure. He will chase out of His presence all who are engaging in self-promoting ministries.”
The praying people he mentions will force changes. They are a new breed for a new need. They are frustrated, hungry and their numbers are growing fast. They are coalescing around certain truths: fasting, repentance, and holy surrender to Christ.
Smith Wigglesworth saw this separation coming way back in 1927. He predicted the same group of people that David Wilkerson described: “All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.”
Both men believed that this gathering unto the Holy Spirit would begin after a great falling away.
Wigglesworth said, “We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.”
I know that the moment these two men predicted is upon us. Everyday I receive another account of frustrated saints suddenly driven to hours of prayer. Many are fasting. A vast number are about to find each other in a true outbreak of holy fire.Millions of believers across America feel they are being separated to the Holy Spirit for some amazing yet unknown reason. Wilkerson talked about a “work” within us. Wigglesworth talked about “pressing in.” The image is clear…the Holy Spirit is stirring souls across the nation. They are done with the overuse of big screens, skinny jeans, and fog machines.
They are being pulled away from fleshly things even as a spirit of prayer is overtaking them. They are surrendering to a special work of the Holy Spirit. A fresh work of the Holy Spirit has begun! The impact will soon be widespread.
Satan is flooding the world with evil while Christians have grown passive. Believers are ignorant of what God expects them to do to stand against the torrent of wickedness. But there are those who are sick of waiting and sick of the evil. They know there is something bigger and wider than they have ever known. They also know something else…
They know that:
-Shallow, flattering teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas. It’s fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency. Taking a stand becomes a distant fantasy.
-Satan has sold the church fool’s gold. Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity.
-Faith has grown flabby. Too many don’t know our weapons. They don’t know our authority. They don’t know our marching orders. They don’t know what to say to this generation. Most of all, they know must believers are ignorant about what is right around the corner, if we don’t see revival.
Peter recognized when government crossed the line. Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!”
29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
They are coming after your freedom. They will force feed your children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny. I am calling you out for special power in this hour.
If you are finally ready, then do these things:
1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit. You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire. The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power. To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation. You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.
2. You must flow in signs and wonders. Our culture is beyond words. They must see proof of the power of God. God means for you to provide that proof. The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly. (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e
3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind. God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil. Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”
He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness. He doesn’t care about your age or your education. He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose. They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it. Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined. God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him. You are not going to pray like before. E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”
What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common? Every one of them involves a leap out of dead church life. They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation. They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.
These are the ugliest days in America. They are designed to trap the child of God with anger, depression, despair and exhaustion. Satan wants to destroy your sleep. He is fiercely pursuing your peace. He even wants to use your love for God against you.
We have entered a season in American life that is the worst that Christians have ever known. There are forces crashing against our spirit that are unheard of by prior generations.Satan wants you angry, depressed and exhausted. He wants it for a different reason that you know. He is using fake news, political correctness, and the insane behavior of people around you to crush your spirit.
It is ironic, but it is the core of God’s people—the remnant who hold to their convictions who are under the greatest attack. They are encountering withering lies of the devil and attacks that seem to come from every direction.
They are suffering from isolation: Since they are not at home in the compromised church they feel isolated and even punished for dropping out of the shallowness.
They are also under attack at their jobs where their stand against immoral living makes them a target of outright hostility and false accusations of being judgmental or hateful.
They are the special target of Satan for a reason that is hidden. They are marked by evil to be attacked more viciously than the lukewarm believer.
A verse I’ve read for decades just woke me up to the reason for the attack on you. It explains that Satan feverishly labors to crush the spirit of those God has chosen. Jesus said, “”Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. -Luke 21:34
In this message, I will show you three things to do that will make you able to conquer all you feelings and emotions. You are here for a big reason. Satan wants you trapped so that you miss the day of His power. The harvest you were promised—the revival you have yearned for—the outpouring you have expected. But God has more than provided for this attack.
Lucifer knows your role and wants you trapped by emotions and yes addictions! It is shocking to many on fire Christians that Satan would use their broken spirit to try to trap them in drugs and alcohol. They are shocked to be reeling under this temptation after years of fiery dedication to Christ.
It’s a trap! The devil wants you out of commission on the day of His power…but now, we will rip the mask off this attack and we will defuse the bomb that is threatening your emotions. It is time for a special last day’s miracle in your spirit!
It is time for supernatural emotions! The three things I will ask you to do are tied to one single victorious and defiant declaration…
This declaration will–if you let it ignite in your soul–not only save your life but give you power you never imagined. It will make all of the difference in the world to your health physically and mentally. There is one declaration that will pave the way for you to conquer anything that the future holds.
What is the declaration—roaring out of our spirit—that would give us the upper hand over all of the insanity of this time?
THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES.
You are declaring that you are happening to the end times when you do these things:
1. Become catalytic. A catalyst is any substance that changes what is around it without itself being changed or consumed. The hellish events of today cannot change you or consume you.
Now look at God. He gives special grace for these last days. Grace is not just favor. It is not just forgiveness. It is the combined power of the resurrection and the righteousness of Jesus Himself.
We hear Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out exploits.” We hear that verse quoted quite often but we may be failing to see the real good news in that promise and its direct bearing on what you are going through right now.
Because you know God you are protected from the corruption of this time. Because you know God you will be stronger than these times. Because you know God you will not merely survive these times, you will exploit them.
2.Declare God’s power over your physical health. He will restore your energy, He will oversee your immune system. He will guard your heart so that your resistance to disease will be awesome. Obamacare cannot begin to match the benefits of what Christ offers you now.
Psalm 103: 1 “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Isaiah 40: 31 “But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
James 5:14 “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”
You do not have to dread long lines at an emergency room when you claim Christ as your doctor and the guardian of your health!
3. Let supernatural emotions remove your fear of bad news, headlines and threats.
It is time for the people who quote, “Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world, to also confess “greater is He who is in me than what is happening in the world.”
Psalm 112:7-8 “He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”
God wants to give us supernatural emotions. Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
God wants you to walk in the knowledge of His supernatural protection. John 17:15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
What shall we say to these terrible, evil, stressful things? We shall say: THE END TIMES ARE NOT HAPPENING TO ME. I AM HAPPENING TO THE END TIMES!
Is this an arrogant boast or worse a delusional boast? Absolutely not. You must take your position in the heavenlies. When the anointed of God take their proper stand in the heavenlies, the circumstances of the last days must bend to their destiny…and their emotions to the joy of the Lord.
I told the Lord I wanted to reach America. I immediately felt this in my spirit, “Then you must reach California.”
Five years ago, while preaching in Stockton, I had a vivid dream—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep. I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great central valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”
I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I can’t fathom. Especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.
At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church, and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda.
How far gone are California leftists? At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the nation state—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state.
Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions for leftist atheists.
Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?
California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests help for a gay lifestyle.
Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big never mind. Never mind that California is dead last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. Never mind that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. Never mind that innocent people are murdered by illegals they protect from being arrested.
California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. The are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.
What can we possibly do about all this? What we do is put our natural mind aside and obey God! What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California.
That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, when God said, “If you want to reach America, you must reach California.”
Here and now, I am announcing to you Living Proof California. Living Proof will follow the route I saw in my dream. We will set up our tent in key cities starting in the north and working our way south along Highway 99.
If you live in or near the cities of Paradise, Marysville, Sacramento, Modesto, Turlock, Los Banos, Fresno, and Bakersfield listen carefully: the tent is coming to a site near you.
It all begins in March in Marysville and will continue south like a mighty river of healing and salvation. Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.”
I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now. Pray for favor to finalize our permits on the very best sites. Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we will be investing massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.
The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat. I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this.
Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord Behold their threats and grant to your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.”
California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved. No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle on the horizon. Click the link below if you want to be a part of Living Proof California! Details coming soon!
It is clear that a new breed of weapon is about to emerge. They are the wounded healers. Who are these people? Well, they do not have every hair in place or a clean record. They are not the sanitized, prissy version of the Body of Christ. They have messed up and then gotten back up. Trampled and left for dead, God restored them! They have no image to protect or ego to wound. They are the most dangerous people that Satan will ever face!
They gained all new appetites in the furnace of affliction. They do not need the glory and they eschew titles and awards. Their unswerving passion is to show compassion and take prisoners of love. You cannot get them to fight over doctrine because they have been to the Cross. They know the Blood that bought and then brought them back to life.
They are like Peter at Pentecost. Only a soul handed another chance after denying the Lord three times will understand the inner fire of a wounded healer. Who could write such a dangerous song as Amazing Grace but John Newton whose plaque says “Once an infidel and libertine A servant of slaves in Africa, Was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Saviour JESUS CHRIST, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the Gospel which he had long laboured to destroy.
You cannot find such zeal in religious do-gooders who never brave beyond ivied halls of respectability. You will not find this flame in the bleachers where the cold souls sit and keep score but will never take the field.
Wounded healers do not boast of clean uniforms and of battles evaded, but of scars and gates of hell invaded. They have no preaching pedigree but a song that sets the captive free.
We all know of the verse in Daniel 11:32 that says,” Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. “ What we tend to overlook is the verse that comes later that speaks of the wounded healers. Daniel 11:35 says,” And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.”
This is a word for you my friend! Your attack is not to destroy you but to refine you! Your rejection and your abandonment are not meant for shame but for purity. It does not matter how your garments appear to Pharisees when they are white before God.
The most incredible news is this… though religious voices have disqualified you; your destiny is yet for an appointed time! The door that God holds open stays open!
Now let us look at another aspect of the Wounded Healer. They are able to reach the masses that the regular church cannot. Therefore, they are the perfect weapon for this moment in the end of all things. If only these special ops believers could see who they are and lose their need for the approval of cookie cutter Christians then they will become God’s tractor beam for lost souls.
Getting rid of the fear of man was the principal prize that so many of you gained in adversity. So many of you wrote to me about the horrific events of your life and in the face of everything else, it became so real, how much God meant everything and the approval of your judges meant nothing. Truly, you shouted, “If God is for us, who can be against us!”
Many wrote of the life of power that rose out of the ashes of despair. They felt equipped to do more than ever. They felt useful and lethal!! AMEN!! This has to be the purest meaning of 2 Corinthians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
Look around you and you will see how a new generation of leader is coming to the fore. They do not wait for committee approval. They rent a school auditorium in a bad area and just start preaching. They preach raw sermons with an open heart and crowds come from everywhere.
Their front line ministry is unlisted in the who’s who of the council of Churches but Jesus feels just fine showing up every time they meet! Look again and see others who carry “unlicensed weapons”. They open their homes to youth. They send out food, clothes and love in the most unconventional ways imaginable all with the smile of God.
Wounded healers may not wear denominational labels. They do not schmooze in the right rooms but they carry the fight to where it matters the most. They operate under direct orders of the King of Kings!
When you see one you will know them. They will not judge you and no matter how far gone you feel they will see you through the lens of the Holy Spirit. They will see you as you will look after your miracle has come. You will feel welcome in their presence and you will look priceless in their eyes. They do not view the sinner as a commodity but as kidnapped royalty.
Someone told me that a certain section of the church would never listen to me again. I did the math, subtracted that group, and found that there were still another 240 million souls in the United States alone. I fully intend to go after every one.
What about you? What will you do with your adversity, pain and shame? All I can do is tell you what I did. At the lowest point of my life, God was waiting for me to make a choice. My choice is to minister wherever the door opens and preach from now on as if each message is my last.
Deciding to go on when you feel nothing but agony is the greatest victory that you will ever win. Not caring who gets the credit will rip the lid off your limits.
What are you and I waiting for? We have loved ones to snatch back! We have miracles to unleash on lost souls. There is a whole world out there that has never even heard of church fights or legalistic regulations.
When Elijah told the widow to go and get as many containers as she could and God would fill them with oil, she realized that the condition of the cans, bottle, pails, or pots was not important. God put oil in all of them. Wounded healers are not perfect containers, they are simply full of oil and that is all that truly matters.
God knows what he is doing. Saul of Tarsus was the wounded healer of all of the twelve disciples. He felt unworthy to be a disciple and said so in no uncertain terms. Yet, he attributed his surpassing labor for Christ to a sense that he was a broken vessel.
Jesus showed another power of the wounded healer in Luke 7:44- 47 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
Therefore, to all you wounded healers I say you will not get credit from the religious peanut gallery so you will have to be content with accomplishing more than any of them will for Christ and loving the Lord more than they can ever imagine.
