Brace Yourself for the Santa Rosa Fire!

Brace yourself for the Santa Rosa fire!

Today is Saturday June 16, 2012 and I feel like one of those animals in the zoo howling the night before a massive earthquake.  Something deep within me is telling me that Santa Rosa will be one of the greatest, if not the greatest outpouring of God for souls and miracles we have ever seen.

I am making this bold declaration from 45 years of experience.  A weatherman can look at a satellite image and see what is coming.  They can measure wind speed and barometric pressure.  They can see massive lines of clouds and an angry cold front.  They know when something big is coming.  All the elements of  a supernatural perfect storm are here.

Let me list them for you.

1.  A holy fear is warning me to be ready.  I do not feel a danger of hyping this event but of missing a great visitation. I feel the warning of Jesus: Luke 19: 43 “For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

We can and should know with awakening is about to happen. Why else would Jesus rebuke with tears a city that should have known?  In such a time as this, it is not arrogance to warn that a move of God is imminent.  Detecting impending awakening is not only possible is our solemn duty.

2. The people are suddenly willing and excited.   Psalm 110:3 “Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power.”   2 Chronicles 29: 36 “Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced at what God had brought about for his people, because it was done so quickly.”

Pastor Larry and Jan King have called the people to prayer and the excitement came effortlessly.  All at once, believers in the Santa Rosa area have dispensed with self-centered church and are praying, serving and reaching out!

3. California is in the grip of darkness, bankruptcy and despair.  Unemployment is much higher here than the liberal power structure will admit in a reelection year.  Drug use is also at its highest rate along with crime and suicide.  Secular humanism and atheism poison the people.  The moral vacuum is worse than ever.  It is in precisely these conditions that God intervenes. Psalm 119:126  “It is time for You to act, O Lord, For they have regarded Your law as void.”

4. Prophetic words are now being fulfilled.  Hundreds have already been saved all over Northern California.  Fires burn in Redding, Yuba City, Manteca, Martinez, Salinas, Clearlake and many other places.  A ring of fire seems to be forming around San Francisco.

Once again, I am haunted by the shocking prediction of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that came from of all people, Bob Dylan!  This is it…every atom of my being tells me so!  Look out, the Santa Rosa Fire is ignited and it will be unstoppable.

Here we go again. The Spirit of God falls on Santa Rosa

 

The Bible speaks of “the day of vengeance of our God.”  Pentecost Sunday in Santa Rosa was a day that God seemed to be having vengeance on the powers of darkness in Santa Rosa!  You better sit down because here we go again!  A mighty outpouring of God has come to Santa Rosa.   God began to heal cancer and every other disease with a vengeance.  Power was so deeply present that fear came on my soul.  Heaven was trouncing the earth! 

Here we go again.  The Spirit of God falls mightily in Santa Rosa.  Just when the devil thought that Clearlake was a fluke we have another explosion of miracles in a Northern California church.  We went  to Living Word Family Church for two services yesterday.  Now we are faced with the fact that another undeniable outpouring has started. 

Pastors Larry and Janice King , along with intercessors in their congregation at Living Word Family Church have been storming heaven for 7 years for awakening.  God chose of all days, Pentecost Sunday to answer their prayer!

From the jump it was obvious that the audience was filled with expectancy.  A capacity crowd filled the sanctuary on what was also Memorial day weekend, notorious for wreaking havoc on church attendance.  From the looks on the people’s faces it would not matter if we were trying to have a meeting on Christmas morning.  They were hungry, they were on fire…they were ready.

All day long miracles took place.  I am not sure that I have ever seen so many people healed so quickly and so totally.  The Holy Spirit drove me to a woman  I asked her to stand.  The next thing I know, the Holy Spirit says, “there are so many things wrong in this woman’s body that you must speak quickly to get to all of them.”  As I mentioned each disease she would say, “yes.” I was amazed that the word coming forth mentioned a disease for virtually every part of her body and every vital organ in her body.  The whole audience observed in stunned amazement as Jesus reconstructed her.  Moments before, walking without pain and agonizing restrictions would have been out of the question.  Now it was all gone, she could walk, bend, breathe, twist and then she rocked the house by running!

When the meeting seemed to be ending, a woman stood and interrupted the crowd.  “I am not leaving until you pray for my niece!” She yelled.  God told me in the calmest voice, “it’s okay, pray for her, she has brain cancer.”  A power surge hit the whole building and no one could deny it.  It was indeed brain cancer and now all possibility of doubt left the building. 

We tried again to end the meeting but God was not through yet!  My heart and mind were so dominated by Christ that I felt I had lost all personal opinion on anything.  By the Spirit, I asked a man in the back to stand.  I told him that he was concerned for the little girl seated near him.  It was his granddaughter who looked about 4 years old.  Then I told him that God wanted to heal him first.  Once again, a list of conditions poured forth by the mercy of God.  Back, neck, arms, legs, heart, lungs all come under the focus of Jesus.  We found out later that this man was in a motorcycle crash that sent him off of a cliff.  Now all of the pain, the damage from the wreck, plus the heart condition was swallowed up in a surge of power. 

I said, “now pick up your granddaughter,” the power began to flow through her little body.  There was not a dry eye in the house as this grandfather wrapped his arms around  his granddaughter suffering with severe rheumatoid arthritis. Healing virtue radiated from both of them. 

This report barely scratches the surface of what happened last night including the souls that were saved.  We are now seeking God for the next step in what we know will be a massive outreach of souls in Santa Rosa…again, stay tuned many more amazing reports are coming soon!

This is an astounding healing and it is the forerunner to something big.

 This is an astounding healing and it is the forerunner to something big.  It is time for fresh openness.  It is time to make room for signs and wonders.

Her name is Tee.  Her story is towering proof of the power of God.  She and her husband came to the meeting in Clearlake in total desperation.  She was just told she would die in 6 months.  A car wreck devastated her spine.  Her doctor said that her vertebrae were telescoping down is 5 places. she had advanced diabetes, heart disease, and to top it all off she had a dead liver.  Her condition was so weakened that the doctors said even a liver transplant would not save her.

Today at 5PM at Dream House there will be living proof that Jesus heals.  We are expecting hopeless cases to be healed!  We are also imploring people from everywhere to come to the Dream House to hear the most amazing story of healing ever.

Anyone who was present in First Assembly Clearlake will tell you that the power that they felt as she was being healed will linger in their memory for the rest of their life.

Back at her doctor’s office, the tests  verified what she already knew.  Blood sugar normal, spine restored, heart healthy, but what flabbergasted the doctor was that the X-ray showed a new liver!

You can see and hear her today for yourself.  Come if at all possible.  Bring someone you love who needs to be saved or healed.

I am writing this the night before our rally.  I already know that God will do life altering things.  This fact alone has led to some deep soul-searching. Let me share some of the things that this woman’s healing has done for me.

The healings God is doing in many ministries in many places prove that God has launched a major assault on demons and that He is already giving America and other nations another chance.  What is most exciting is that I believe that this time, unlike former times, leaders are embracing this chance!

In the revival in Clearlake Pastor Steve Snyder said something profound and urgent.  He said, “above all, I want to be open to Jesus.”  Simple words that echo in my spirit.  Miracles can be wasted, and a supernatural epoch of time can be missed.

Openness, we need it more than we can imagine!  We preachers must turn off our critical and doubting ways, and embrace the moving of the Holy Spirit in whatever form He chooses it to take.

Here are the features of openness I saw in the people in Clearlake: They arranged their lives around the meetings. They brought others to the meetings. They lost track of time in the meetings. They listened as if they were the only one in the room. It convicts me when I think of how these people went beyond the zeal of most ministers.  Miracles are inevitable when people do these things.

We have another desperate need besides openness.  We need to make room for the moving of the Holy Spirit.  Expectation is nothing if it is not matched with action. We must have an intentional place reserved for the power of God to manifest itself in our meetings.  This is even more urgent since we have entered a time of revival.  Our obedience now will mean that God will overflow our church walls and bring a long delayed message of hope to our nation.

It is quite possible that a mighty revival may ignite at Dream House that will touch the West Coast but I also know that God can use anyone who is open and makes room.  I do not care where it starts so long as it does start.  Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ!

Tee will Share Her testimony, Pastor Eddie and Mando Gonzales will minister in worship, and I will bring a message of Signs and Wonders at Dream House.  1015 Estudillo St. Martinez CA 94553.  Call us at 925 300 3007. We start at 5PM.

 

Jesus moves to Clearlake

When Jesus moved to Clearlake (title to be explained later) (We are also including a correction and retraction.)

There are many meetings going on right now all over the American church world that are bigger, richer, and certainly more famous than these meetings at First Assembly in Clearlake.  But I promise you that none can exhaust words of description like this one.  This meeting is sweet, innocent and yet raw and heart-wrenching. It is gentle and yet rages with power.  It is so simple that a child can understand it yet it is so profound that it would leave the wisest sage searching for answers.

I have no illusions about myself.  These meetings have nothing to do with me or any righteousness that I possess. I am not William Branham.  But William Branham would weep in these meetings.  Not just because of the signs and wonders but because of the direct blast of God’s compassion on hurting people. 

Nothing says this better than the woman who wore no shoes in church because they hurt.  She told the audience that since her leg had grown out to be the same length as the other that one the shoe with the higher heel was painful.   So why didn’t she just get new shoes?  That is the paradox of this area.  An economy that has been decimated is being visited by God!  I know this crowd, she’ll end up with several pairs of new shoes, because they give till it hurts or rather till it stops hurting!

  • (Here is an important correction and retraction.  I want to apologize to someone in ministry in the Clearlake area.  In an earlier post right here we described a wonderful healing.  It is still a glorious testimony that deserves to get wide spread exposure as a mighty example of God’s power to heal terminal illness.  Sadly, a portion of the testimony got mixed up with another miracle that included a deliverance from drug addiction. )
  • The problem is that the person who was healed is in ministry and never was a drug addict.  Unbelievably, some in the Clearlake area have actually begun to attack this person and I find that horrible because we caused this misunderstanding and disgusting that anyone would do such a thing to a minister of the Gospel.  For my part, I apologize for the muddling of this wonderful testimony and assure everyone that we will be even more zealous to uncover the details of any miracle that is reported to us.)

Then there is the atmosphere of these meetings.  The best way I can explain this is by another testimony.  Pastor Steve Snyder was called away and couldn’t return until midway through the meeting.  When he returned and got out of his car to walk back in, he could feel the glory as he approached the building .  When he walked in the light of God’s glory that filled the house was in stunning contrast to the outside world.

God has given me a parallel to this miracle by the lake.  When Jesus began his ministry he went to his home town and they promptly rejected him.  Then he went to a remote place by a lake that held no promise of fame but he did it as the word tells us, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:   “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles:  The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death  Light has dawned.”-Matthew 4:14-16.

Roaming the streets of Clearlake late at night is not safe but Mechelle and I did not know it.  What we saw was heart breaking and horrifying.  We saw the walking dead.  Drugged up families walking aimlessly in the night.  Indeed God was bringing the light to the people who sat in darkness.

Matthew Henry described the residents of Zebulun this way, “Now, concerning the inhabitants of these places, observe,  they were in the region and shadow of death; which denotes not only great darkness, as the grave is a land of darkness, but great danger. A man that is desperately sick, and not likely to recover, is in the valley of the shadow of death, though not quite dead; so the poor people were on the borders of damnation, though not yet damned-dead in law. And, which is worst of all, they were sitting in this condition. Sitting in a continuing posture; where we sit, we mean to stay; they were in the dark, and likely to be so, despairing to find the way out.”   But there is something more amazing about the paralell between Clearlake and the land of Zebulun… more tomorrow.
