The driving force behind the Awakening that has started in many places and is spreading is not the big name preachers, megachurches and various movements. They have had their place and been used by the Lord.
But now I see in the spirit smaller churches and gatherings all over the world, not limited by denomination or movement, experiencing a unity of the faith. That unity is among ordinary but strong believers who are stirring up the fire and growing in maturity and understanding of grace through faith not just for salvation but everyday life. These are believers knowing who they are in Christ, with the gift of His righteousness, who are stepping out in the power of the Holy Spirit. They are exercising five-fold ministry without the titles, according to their giftings, to advance the Kingdom and bring in the harvest.
Many will dream dreams, experience visions, speak breakthrough prayers, heal the sick, prophesy God’s heart and hold the enemy at bey with the light of Christ in the authority and power of the spirit. And, it won’t be a particular movement, but spirit-filled churches and groups who are spiritually on the same page.
The Charismatic renewal of the previous generation saw an outpouring of the Holy Spirit even in denominational churches. It was a powerful move of God that ended up getting sidelined. But out of it, a multiplicity of movements and churches believing in God’s grace through faith, not works, and the power of the Holy Spirit, were birthed and are growing everywhere.
I hear the Lord saying the time is ripe for restoration of Holy Spirit renewal. It will bring resurgence of the message of God’s love and grace in Jesus received by faith, and the authority and power of the believer to work miracles, even raise the dead, and bring transformation to cultures and societies, as the bride makes herself ready.
Arise from sleep and start living out of, or resume or enhance the new life you have received.
I sense the Lord saying: “The time is at hand. Stay strong in My Word, and pray in the Spirit, live in My presence, walk by faith, draw on the resources that I have placed within you, both the fruit and the gifts of the Spirit, and I will use you in glorious ways in building the end-times Body of Christ.”
