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.
