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!

 

Hab 3:2

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.

NKJV

 

Hos 6:1-3

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.

NKJV

Crazy times we are experiencing right? How quickly the stability of this life can change for sure. We truly cannot trust in anything but God for our real security, can we? I, like yourselves, am being overloaded daily with various opinions and conspiracy theories about what is happening in our world right now. So who do you believe?  Who is telling the truth? We may never know for sure, but what we do know is nothing has changed with God and He is telling us the truth!

 

Psalm 25:5

5 Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.

NKJV

 

There is a lot of waiting going on right now and while we wait for this pandemic to pass we need to focus on what matters most; truth! God’s truth, not the latest whistleblowers’ word, but the word of God! Almost daily I see the reports of contradictions to what we are being told by the government, and I understand the frustration of trying to figure out just who is telling the truth. I listen and ponder, but I refuse to allow it to consume me and waste too much time trying to discern who is right.

 

In this age of information anyone with a connection to the internet can “become an expert” on the world’s affairs, or a theologian, or a medical expert or a science expert. So what is the truth and who do we believe?

 

John 17:17-19

17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 

18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 

 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. 

NKJV

 

I will continue to preach the word and focus on the word and believe the word and I hope you will too! Let’s see what the word says about things like what are happening right now.

Here is what we declared this past Sunday morning:

 

Matthew 10:27-31

27 Jesus Teaches the Fear of God “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 

28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 

31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 

NKJV

 

So, I would say do not fear a virus that can kill the body, but fear God who can destroy body and soul in hell! I would say lets get and keep our hearts right before Him!

 

Luke 12:22-34

22 Do Not Worry Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. 

23 Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. 

 

24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? 

25 And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 

26 If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? 

27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 

28 If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? 

29 “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. 

30 For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. 

31 But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. 

32 “Do not fear , little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 

33 Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches nor moth destroys. 

34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 

NKJV

 

Over and over more than 360 times we are told not to fear, this means we can do something about fear, we can stand against it with the power of God, His word, and His Spirit!

Have a blessed week and stay in “the truth”!

Fear or faith, how does the Church respond to crisis?

For 37 years I have preached that we are in the end of days and that great calamity is coming on the Earth. For 37 years I have defied the spirit of the age and preached the opposite of what it stands for. I believe in the power of God and I believe that God is real among us when we worship. I believe that our worship and gathering should continue when it’s convenient or inconvenient, welcome or unwelcome, under threat of harm or not. I know many do not hold this position and that is between them and their Savior.

If our gatherings are not important, then why are believers all over the world meeting under threat of death or imprisonment from their Governments? I will submit to some controls, but not indefinite suspension of corporate worship of our God and our gathering together to praise Him. You have watched online before and Thank God for it, but it is not the same and we know that. We will continue our corporate worship at this time for all who, like myself, are compelled to gather in worship to our God.

This is a decision each must make and we will keep you posted if anything changes. Many leaders as myself have taken this stand and many have chosen to suspend gathering during this time.

This is the time to proclaim “By Jesus stripes we are healed!” I wake up declaring disease must die when it touches my body, and just as Paul shook off the serpent when it fastened to his hand, we stand and shake off any plague that attacks our body. Some will argue, “that’s not real or practical, we should use wisdom”. I believe it is wise to honor God with repentance and worship of Him! If I stop laying hands on the sick because I am afraid of getting their sickness, why am I calling myself a believer in God’s power to heal?

Mark 16 “They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover…”

I remember a couple years ago Pastor Brian Adams went to a leper colony and the local pastors of that country were afraid to go in with him. After he demonstrated faith instead of fear, a church was established there where fear had ruled!

Psalm 103:1-5
103:1 Praise for the LORD’s Mercies A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
NKJV

I turned 61 today and I am declaring the healing power of God over my body when I feel like it and when I don’t. My youth is being renewed and I will finish my race with the strength of the Lord.

Isaiah 53:3-6
3 He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.
4 Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. [Matt 8:17.]
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all. [1 Peter 2:24,25.]
