What the Spirit Is Saying

by | Oct 31, 2007 | Prophetic Insight

There is a new holiness movement coming to the church.

One of the things I look for to confirm that I am hearing the voice of God is “prophetic consensus.” This means that there are other prophetic voices hearing something similar.

We find a biblical example in Acts 13:1-2: “Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them'” (NKJV). The church leaders in Antioch agreed about what the Holy Spirit was saying.

When God speaks there is always prophetic consensus. For this reason a group of respected prophets, convened by Peter Wagner, meets annually to receive the word of the Lord for the year and hear what the Holy Spirit is saying to the church. Here are a few of the tested words I have compiled from both that group and other prophetic voices that relate to the current season:

»God is bringing things “full circle” in our lives. Things that were lost will be restored, dreams that have died will live, and loose ends from the past will be resolved.
»The body of Christ is gaining new levels of authority. Visible manifestations of the presence and glory of God will be poured out in society, and the power of God is going to spill out from the church to the nations.

»We will soon hear more frequently of angelic visitations, even from little children.

»There is a new holiness movement coming to the church. Sin is going to be exposed on an unprecedented scale. God is going to reveal the sin that is not dealt with.

»God will raise up anointed people in society to influence our culture and the media.

»We are in the beginning of another Jesus People movement that will result in thousands of souls being swept into the kingdom of God.There is a new generation of revivalists rising up who preach with the same fervor as Leonard Ravenhill and William and Catherine Booth.

»Many people will become reformers like William Wilberforce, who ended slavery in Great Britain. Pro-life movements will spring up on every continent to address abortion.

»Europe, China and India will experience powerful visitations of God. Europe is going to experience a reformation greater than what occurred in Martin Luther’s day. Germany will have a special anointing for this reformation.

»University campuses will be set ablaze by God’s power. The ministry of the Holy Spirit will touch fraternities and sororities. This movement will touch Ivy League schools, and there will be major spiritual shakings in schools of divinity. Oxford University in England will experience a powerful movement of evangelism also.

»2008 will be a year of entering new gates. God will thrust those who prepare into positions of power and favor, but those who refuse to humble themselves and repent will fall as quickly as they climbed the scale of success.

»Christian business leaders will invest in value-based filmmaking, driving major motion picture companies to remove immorality from their productions. Young filmmakers will be “supernovas” for God. They will rise seemingly out of nowhere to places of great influence.

»There is tremendous pressure on those God has specially anointed for societal transformation. They must not allow discouragement to take root in their souls. They will receive a fresh wind and momentum to reform their cities and nations.

This is an exciting hour. Stand up and offer yourself to God so that He can use you in this new movement of the Holy Spirit that is sweeping the earth. Satan is angry, but we will have victory over him as we realize the battle is truly the Lord’s.
