1. God used Paul Cain to prophesy this;
"Paul has had several specific burdens and prophetic expectations for the Body of Christ today and in the days to come. He has had reoccurring visions concerning the end times, which he believes are rapidly approaching. About 30 years ago the Lord gave Paul a vision that has occurred to Paul more than a few times and still reoccurs to this day. It is a vision of the last days when sports stadiums all over the United States are filled with thousands of people. In this vision, people are being healed and miracles are happening to thousands in the name of Jesus Christ. People are turning to the Lord in droves and the whole nation is in revival. It seemed the whole earth was turning to Christ. Television news reporters are broadcasting stories of resurrections and miracle healings. None of the secular reporters could get near the men on the platform. They did not know who the men were.
Paul described them as "almost faceless men." He hears a TV anchorman saying, "There are no sporting events to report tonight because all the stadiums, ball parks and arenas are being used for large revival meetings and are filled with people crying, ''Jesus is Lord, Jesus is Lord."In these visions, Paul saw these men minister for three days and nights without food, water or change of clothing. Supernatural strength enabled them to continue for these long periods. In the vision, Paul is standing at the crossroads of life and sees a billboard that says, "Joel's army now in training." People are being trained to walk in obedience to Jesus. They have learned patience and endurance, have the power of God and having done all, they know how to stand against the enemy. "They will have the mind of Christ," Paul said. "They will partake of the heavenly calling and be a new breed, God's dread champions."
Those ministries will be filled with such passion for Jesus and the power of the Spirit that the host of darkness will dread their impact. Paul said in the midst of the Laodicean church age of lethargy and apathy, that God was preparing in hiddenness an army to pull down enemy strongholds, and go forth in the power of God and have pure and undefiled religion."He's going to do this with a people who have stripped themselves and separated themselves from the world, the flesh and the devil," Paul said. "They will realize the end time is here and that things are in a mess and things at the end time are different. Just as it required total sacrifice on the part of the disciples to begin this thing, it will require an equal commitment from us to complete the task in the end times.Joe's mighty army, as described in Joel Chapter 2 is the army of God - not a wicked army, as some have thought. They are the ones with 'feet of iron not mixed with clay', with the wisdom of God alone, not imitators of other men of God. Some of the superstars of the Church will fall. The Lord will have an army of holy anointed vessels to usher in His kingdom so that no one man can take credit for it. It will be to the glory of God alone."
2. Rob Rufus made a connection clear between Hong Kong and the Florida Revival that I had already figured but is just awesome to consider in his sermon today (I just LOVE being able to hear Rob preach the same day!).
"I have waited for what has broken out in Florida! How many of you have not heard what is going on in Florida? One of the greatest revivals in the earth - a historical revival - started literally almost to the day (or within days) when your pastor (he is Rob Rufus!) stood in this pulpit to this congregation and said; "A Global Flood is Coming to the Planet" and it will touch the whole planet and there will be a flood of miracles, signs and wonders like the earth has never seen before. How many of you remember that? Within that time the Florida Outpouring broke out!
They went from a 700 seater church to a few thousand seater then to a 10,000 auditorium and now they are in a massive stadium! If you go on God TV or on your computer then you can watch this revival take place. It has got all the ingrediants of the last 100 years of revivals all concentrated into one. You won't see play-play stuff, you won't see a lot of shouting and hype and pretense. What you will see is CNN reporting, media have come, people getting out of wheelchairs in front of your eyes in the United States of America! Not in Africa or a Third World country - but in a sophisticated nation where there are seldom miracles! They mainly take place in China, India, South America and in Africa.
Miracles are happening in a Western country - they are seeing blind eyes opening and deaf ears opening! Not a few - I am talking about hundreds and hundreds of miracles every single day! CNN reporting! Journalists coming in! Todd Bentley preaching through the TV and it is going to 240 nations of the earth! It is being communicated through the media! Hundreds of millions around the earth are hearing it! Todd Bentley looks in and says Keith Richards (the Rolling Stones star) is watching this now (knowing by the world of knowledge) and you are in bondage to drugs. Keith Richards reported to a high level Hollywood reporter that is exactly what happened! He was sitting watching God TV and Todd Bentley said; "You are watching this now!".
Paul Cain - one of the leading prophets from the 1950's and 60's who survived that - fell into some stuff recently but God has brought him out and God is restoring the prophets, he said; "The day is coming when there will be such miracles that stadiums won't be able to fit the people in". Paul Cain is going to be there to watch what he prophesied 20 years ago coming to pass.
I prophesied this! Along with a lot of prophets around the world - it's just that mine was on the button - within days! Remember when I prophesied a "Wave of Glory is Coming"? I said this is not a new season because seasons come and go. This is a new climate - a new atmosphere - a new dimension that will keep increasing until the return of Jesus comes! This is what Christians have been praying for, for literally centuries! Now it is coming into manifestation and the prophets are saying it is contageous, it's tangible, it's transferrable, people have already taken it to dozens of cities around the United States and it is breaking out and they are having weeks of meetings!
Note this particularly - I found it hard to keep seated as I type!
It is breaking out in the United Kingdom and the prophets are saying it is going to break out in England! Where are we going? I have already written to Graham Marsh where we are going - where there are masses of people already registering for our Empowerment Conference where we are the main speakers. I wrote to him yesterday and said; "I hear in my spirit that the great Eastbourne Outpouring is coming to England! Get ready - tell the people we will see mighty signs and wonders!".
Prophecy is being fulfilled! These are such thrilling, thrilling days we are living in and I cannot believe what each day will hold. What will God do next?! I don't know but I cannot wait to see! Let's not make the mistake of our fore-fathers. Let's never ever quench the Spirit - let's allow God to be God! Let's see the lost coming running because finally Church is being what it should be! Revival is here! The manifest Presence of God has fallen! God is taking back His Church!
