In March of 2020, I sat on a beach in Santa Cruz, California, with several pastors and released a vision the Lord had given me. Revival was coming, and it was coming soon. The short description of this detailed vision was that God was about to pour out upon the people the fire stored up in heaven. I believe we are in that coming season now.
Who is going to lead this revival? Who will steward this fiery flow? The hidden ones! Those who are crying out, not for a platform but for a promise, the promise of His presence. The ones who didn’t have an expectation of carrying this fire in this outpouring are going to release a third Great Awakening.
These are the hidden ones, those who currently are nameless and faceless. Only as I wrote this article did I become familiar with a vision Paul Cain released in February 1989 about the same nameless and faceless generation. They’re here, and the time is now.
I recently sat down with one of the hidden ones on my podcast, DNA of a Dangerous Church. Jessi Green started Saturate OC, the revivals along the shoreline of California. She ignited these revivals just over three months after I gave this word about an upcoming revival outpouring.
We discussed not only how these revivals began but the keys to releasing new revival and walking in continued sustained generational revival.
In this season, we saw revival break out not only in physical locations, but we are witnessing a new era, a new kingdom that we, as the church, are plundering the digital kingdom. Digital revival, digital equipping, healing, prophesying and more are taking place. In the same month of March, I began going live and praying for people. Since then, more than 1,000 said yes to Jesus; over 1,000 testified to healing; and thousands had their lives shifted into destiny from prophetic words. The god of the air thought he closed and silenced the church, and he returned home from his raids only to find the children of God had taken over the airwaves!
God used these new tools to bypass the old corrupt system. He will not let His voices in the wilderness be silenced, even though the enemy attempts to censor and silence these digital platforms now.
If the Lord called you to ministry, then now is the season for you to rise up and chase after the Lord. Now is the time to run toward His calling. You don’t need an audience; you need obedience. God is equipping you for this season.
I am committed to equipping the saints in this season, to prophesy, pray for healing and share the gospel everywhere they go. We are not waiting on revival; revival is here!
In this season, these hidden ones will need the generals to step into the roles of fathering, raising them up and speaking into their lives.
