Prophetic Vision: People Will Move and Act Like Jesus

by | Oct 1, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

In 2013, I saw a vision of a wave coming out of San Diego. Suddenly, a tsunami overtook it and covered the nation. On top of this tsunami were young people who were actually riding this incredible wave.

Instead of riding on surfboards, they were riding on a phrase. The phrase was “Wipeout.” Immediately, by the Spirit, I knew what it stood for: “My sons will walk in power and the enemy will be overcome because they will be untethered from terrestrial (earthly as compared to heavenly) restraints.”

Jesus People Movement: People Moving and Acting Like Jesus

I realized this vision was pointing to the young people that were used during the Jesus People Movement in the 1960s-70s. There is a coming tsunami that will change the landscape of our nation, and some of the characteristics of this tsunami will be related to the Jesus People Movement.

As I continued to drink from the well of understanding of this vision and what it means to embrace union with the crucified Christ, I began to see into something. Presently, being formed in hidden places of darkness, there is a “people” who resemble and carry certain qualities of the Jesus People Movement. However, I see the Spirit of the Lord more accurately putting the emphasis on describing it as “People Moving and Acting Like Jesus.” The book of Acts is a great example of this as it came from a people who moved in the ways of Jesus.

“[A]nd asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to THE WAY, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem” (Acts 9:2, ESV, author’s emphasis)

A People Who Have Embraced the Cross-Shaped Life

These “Jesus People” are being awakened to the revelation of the cross-shaped life. Jesus, in His last breath, “exhaled” His life from the cross and they have “inhaled” the power of His life (this is in visionary language). They have come into a realization that the power of His resurrection is to embrace the fellowship of His suffering (Phil. 3:10-11).

They are awakening to the reality that Christ’s death has made His Church sacred, holy and set apart. They are in the world but not of this world, just like Jesus, because they are learning to move like Him (John 17:14). They are catching the truth that His Church is meant to be the embodiment and answer to “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” (see Matthew 6:9-13).

This truth is not understood just from the perspective of the Lion of Judah, but from the Lamb that has been slain who is worthy to open the scrolls. They have come to manifest the power of the Lion through union with the suffering of the Lamb. It is a “people” who have been empowered to move like Christ as a Suffering Servant (see Isaiah 53) so “death works in them, so life can work in others” through the revelation of His Body always carrying the death of the Lord Jesus (see 2 Corinthians 4:10-12).

Moving as Jesus the Lion and the Lamb

It is the foundation of a crucified life that releases the government of Heaven. God’s people are being reformed as former foundations are being uprooted, torn down, replanted and rebuilt. Over this group of people I keep seeing and hearing these words from Revelation 5:4-6:

“Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; and one of the elders said to me, ‘Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.’ And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.” (Photo via Unsplash)

As I saw the breath exhaled by Jesus on the Cross and these Jesus People inhaling His life, I saw this part of the Scriptures magnified: “…[H]aving seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth” (Revelation 5:6).

In the midst of darkness there is a Jesus People army being formed to move as Jesus moved, embracing a humility and submission to the Father that will manifest a level of glory, corporately, which cannot be contained in anything built by man’s hands. {eoa}
