I gave this word concerning the West Coast Rumble for over a three-year period of time in multiple locations. I wrote it up on my personal ministry e-blasts and it was then partially picked up both by Charisma and the Elijah List.
I always stated that I saw it beginning in San Diego, and then going to seaports up and down the entire West Coast. It started with one dream around four years ago. Later I had other dreams and expanded the word some, so as to include Tijuana, Mexico, because that was what I saw. When it goes there, it will go more into a Crusade-type mode.
After it would begin to land in San Diego, I saw it going up and down the entire West Coast and up as far (not limited to) Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I heard, “Do not call the West Coast the Left Coast, but there will be such a move of My Spirit that it will be the Righteous Coast.”
I repeatedly saw that Jerame Nelson would be given a spearheading assignment concerning this movement of signs and wonders where healing and miracles will eventually become easy. I saw many leaders being anointed for such a time as this.
I saw Che Ahn of HIM releasing a “Father’s Blessing” to this activity, and this has happened at the San Diego meetings. Che is one of the “Fathers” to give a blessing to this historic period of time. This deals with the generations coming together. The Lord gave me a dream in January 2016 to: “Keep your eyes on your sons and your daughters.” Yes, it is happening! It is generational, and it is cross-cultural, and it includes both men and women.
Yes, it is happening. I saw other people and leaders being anointed to lead in different locations. Eventually, there will be so many different pockets and centers opening up that it will be impossible to track it all. It will not be like the past when there was primarily one location where the nation or the world came to—Toronto, Kansas City, Pensacola, Charlotte, Redding, etc. There would be so many hubs opening up and so many new things happening, that this movement will not be one ministry centered, not one city or region centered, not one apostolic center highlighted, or one leader centered. But it all begins with someone and somewhere.
I later pondered on the next location where the possibility of the finger of God would be coming down. The Holy Spirit instructed me that this would be somewhat more like the charismatic movement. On the West Coast, it somewhat had its birthing in Southern California and then went to Seattle, Washington with Dennis and Rita Bennett.
I felt the Lord was going to honor the legacy of the charismatic movement and one of the cities where there could be a sustained presence was Seattle. And thus it has begun at the Seattle Revival Center and possibly other locations with different emphasis and manifestations.
AzusaNow, Past Moves and the Sons and Daughters!
TheCall AzusaNow led by Lou Engle on April 9, is a big part of this entire word also. I gave separate words both privately and publicly to Lou Engle over a two-to three-year period that he was being given the stewardship of his second greatest assignment in his life—TheCall Azusa. These are separate but interlocking words.
TheCall Azusa will act as a “rocket booster” to the entire movement. It brings together the streams of the prophetic and prayer with the power (supernatural culture) with evangelism. The merging of these two great streams will create combustion or a convergence where this rocket shoots forth apostolic and prophetic evangelists, not just to the West Coast but globally. It is another booster to the movement that shoots forth signs and wonders evangelists globally.
So I bless what is happening with “sons and daughters” of the faith in multiple locations. I bless Jerame and Miranda Nelson and Joshua and Janet Mills and the leaders in San Diego. I bless the leaders in Seattle and Charlie Shamp and Munday Martin and their wives and so many others. We are grateful for the impact of the Revival Alliance and the amazing sustained supernatural culture with the generational inheritance with the Johnsons at Bethel Church in Redding, California. Oh my … what a legacy!
We are grateful for the Jesus People Movement and the remnants that remain. We are thankful for the evangelical sphere and the birthing of Billy Graham’s statesman anointing so many years ago. We are thankful for Frank Bartleman and William J. Seymour and the Pentecostal global fire.
We are grateful to the Lord for the Latter Rain Movement and the heritage of Violet Kiteley and the manifested presence of God at Shiloh. Oh how grateful we are for the mighty Signs and Wonders of the 1920s and beyond! Such with Aimee Semple McPherson and the gifting, power, grace, and the artistic culture of Angelus Temple and yes, so many other places! The lasting impact of the Faith Movement. It goes on and on! Yes, it is HISTORY! It is HIS STORY!
Thank the Lord for the pioneers such as Jack Hayford, Dick Mills, Dick Iverson and so many others! Oh thank You, God, for raising up Chuck Smith and Lonnie Frisbee, and then the impact of the global Third Wave Movement with John Wimber, Peter Wagner and hundreds of others!
I could keep going on and on! All the intercessors! All the pastors! All the older saints who have held their place before the Lord! All the revivalists. All those who have gone on to glory peering in with great interest for such a time as this. Oh, but this is about Jesus! Not a center! Not a place! Not a ministry! Not one church! This is about “the Lamb of God” receiving the rewards of His suffering.
Let’s Rumble Together!
I saw that there would be a time when it would seem that the Lord stepped down out of heaven, and did a new dance step. It would be called the “rumba.” And everywhere the Lord’s foot came down, the Earth would shake, and it would create a church quake. The Lord and His people would rumble together.
So keep on coming, Holy Spirit! We want more, Lord! We want You to be magnified! We therefore, pray to the Lord of the Harvest, that He thrust forth laborers into the field!
