I am hearing a lot about “transition.”
The last 3 years flashed before our eyes. It seems like 2020 was yesterday and we skipped 21 and 22.
We entered 2023 in full transition mode. Have you noticed that change is now a way of life?
Change is happening so fast we cannot recognize the changes. We are not just evolving from change to change but morphing from one change to another.
The learning curve is now a fastball. It’s moving so fast that what you learned yesterday is irrelevant. There is no time to remember the old, but to reach forward to that which is ahead.
Let’s jump to the spiritual. God is using the world’s pace to prepare us for His next move.
However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. (I Corinthians 15:46, ESV)
The Holy Spirit is increasing the teaching moments and is preparing the church to become the bride without spot and blemish.
Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. (Revelation 19:7-8, NKJV)
The bride is making herself ready. We will begin to see revival meetings marked by repentance and water baptism. God will continue to show up on college campuses, cafeterias, schools, churches, and coffee shops.
Worship will explode, and the Holy Spirit will invade our place and space.
God will also invade all kinds of churches with worship takeovers. Worship services will extend Sunday services and evening services will extend into the morning hours. Evangelism will show up in retail stores and restaurants.
Public prayer and healing will manifest in a variety of public spheres. Believers will be laying hands on the sick, prophesying and flowing in spiritual gifts in cities all across the nations. If you don’t know, this is already happening.
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. (Acts 2:17, NKJV)
City officials will try to stop what God is doing but will fail.
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. But so that it spreads no further among the people, let us severely threaten them, that from now on they speak to no man in this name.” So, they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. (Acts 4:13-18, NKJV)
Citizens will embrace the spiritual surge and fuel God’s fire into a blue flame. The fire of God will spread from the south into the north, once it passes the Mason-Dixon line, it will split east and west simultaneously.
Hubs of revival will birth in Atlanta Georgia, Austin Texas, Nashville Tennessee, Orlando Florida, Shreveport LA, Dallas Texas, Little Rock, Arkansas, Los Angeles California, Branson Missouri, Indianapolis Indiana, Phoenix Arizona, Utah, and South Carolina.
The revival momentum will be so strong that the resistance will seem mute and minimal.
Cities and communities will be transformed in a matter of months. Some churches will refuse to acknowledge this as God. They will miss their visitation and remain stale and stagnant. Other churches will be renewed, changed, and transition into a new wineskin.
Pray for your pastor and your church
Many pastors have learned how to lead a good church service but are challenged to allow the Holy Spirit to move. Many pastors will harden their hearts.
Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me, as in the day of trial in the wilderness, where your fathers tried Me by testing Me, and saw My works for forty years. (Hebrews 3:7-11, NKJV)
There are tons of pastors who do not have the faith to allow the Holy Spirit to orchestrate a meeting. This fear will become a primary obstacle to revival sweeping across our nation.
It is sobering to think that some will miss the next move of God.
