What an Angel Told Pastor Chris Reed About the Coming End-Times Revival

by | May 4, 2021 | Blogs, The Strang Report

As the social and spiritual climate in our nation gets worse and worse, talk of an end-times revival, even a third Great Awakening, is on the rise. Many young leaders are now declaring the approach of a coming revival, among them a 36-year-old Indiana pastor named Chris Reed, who had a supernatural encounter with an angel whose words agree with this prophetic perspective.

Reed’s encounter took place in what he calls “the libraries of heaven” with an angel he says was named “The Fear of the Lord.” In this encounter, Reed felt a holy reverence and awe as he was drawn to a bookcase labeled “The Supernatural” and to a specific book there titled “The Seven Spirits of God.”

On the front cover were the words “The Spirit of the Lord.” Each page, he told me, was thick and white, like a book within itself. The first page was titled “The Spirit of Wisdom”; the next “The Spirit of Living Understanding or Revelation”; the third, “The Spirit of Counsel”; the fourth, “The Spirit of Might” and the sixth, “The Spirit of Knowledge.” These correspond to the description of the seven Spirits of God listed in Isaiah 11:2.

Reed turned the book over, and the back cover read, “The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord.” He glanced up and then down to see that the back cover had been torn off, and all the pages in the book fell out. He was left holding the front cover, which also read, “The Spirit of the Lord.”

The angel with him in this library said, “Do you understand what you’re seeing? What you are seeing is the result of when the fear of the Lord is missing in the church. You lose the spirit of counsel and might. You lose the spirit of wisdom in everyday situations, knowing how to apply knowledge and wisdom. You lose the spirit of revelation, so people operate out of intellect and head knowledge.”

Finally, he said, “When you lose the fear of the Lord, all you’re left with is an atmosphere.” Reed instantly thought of the many church services he had been in where he didn’t see the spirit of might in the form of miracles or the spirit of knowledge in words of knowledge or revelation, but people still said, “We feel the Spirit of the Lord. We feel the presence of the Lord.”

“There’s got to be more than just an atmosphere and a feeling that the Spirit brings,” Reed says. “We’ve got to have the full, complete Spirit of God at work, or all we’re left with is an atmosphere.”

The full work of the Spirit comes when the fear of the Lord is present, he says. That means a reverential awe and a hatred of all kinds of sin, according to Proverbs 8:13, which says, “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; pride and arrogance and the evil way and the perverse mouth I hate.”

“Holiness, godliness, returns to the church when there is a sovereign outpouring of the spirit of the fear of the Lord,” Reed says. But it doesn’t end there. Reed drew my attention to Acts 5:11, where Ananias and Sapphira lied about their giving and died. The result was that “great fear came on the entire church and all who heard these things.” This immediately led to the return of signs and wonders at an unprecedented level, a supernatural unity, a heightened respect of the church by the world, exponential growth and harvest of souls, angelic activity and the healing of the sick in unprecedented ways. All these results are found in Acts 5, after the fear of the Lord returned to the early church.

“So much is tied to a restoration of the fear of the Lord,” Reed told me. “There is a complete, sevenfold, perfected element of the Spirit of God at work in the church again. That’s what we want.”
