Pastor’s Blog 4.24.20
Will we see a third great awakening come out of this worldwide pandemic? I have read many prophesies that say it is going to happen. The one that really has my attention is the one from David Wilkerson. It was even on an ad on fox news this morning! I followed Wilkerson as a prophetic voice until he died, reading and listening to his thundering messages to the church to “repent”. I probably would give greater heed to what he prophesied than most so called prophetic voices today.
“I see a plague coming on the world, and the bars, churches and government will shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayer less believers into radical prayer and into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from the man of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”
– David Wilkerson in 1986
Revival begins in the pulpit not the pew!
Will Pastors actually begin to preach “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand”, or continue the man-pleasing of the past 20 years? The pulpit has to be awakened to awaken the pew! Congregations are mirrors of their leaders! I have heard some rumblings from a few Pastors who are waking up and I pray the Holy Spirit stirs the heart’s of the shepherds so the scales fall from their eyes and they begin to see the truth again.
I think it will be a couple more months until we even begin to realize the full effect this pandemic has on this present world. We are sailing in un-chartered waters for sure and we have experienced a sharp birth pang of the end times. Please join with me in praying for a pulpit awakening that will lead to a pew awakening that will lead to a world awakening!
We are trying to get a handle on how and when we will gather again. Our Governor is being very vague right now but we are close! We have received many reports about new people who have been watching online saying they are coming when we start meeting again and that is exciting. If you have seen people you know “peeking in” stay in touch with them, and encourage them to come when the doors open again!
We are all believing for revival, and remember it begins with us!
2 O LORD, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.
6:1 Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.
2 After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight.
3 Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
