In 2017, Before many were saying anything about a Third Great Awakening the Holy Spirit began speaking to me concerning future ministry of Revival that was to come. I have to admit that I thought He was dealing with me alone concerning things in my ministry, possibly because of the way in which He spoke to me. In recent days as I have heard many prophets speak of coming revival, I have to wonder if it was not something greater and maybe even worldwide but definitely, I believe nationwide.
Let me give a short background to the vision. At 19 I dedicated my life to Christ in Angelus Temple in Los Angeles, California. Someone I met invited me to sing in a choir, knowing of my love of music being a musician, a choir for Kathryn Kuhlman, the lady evangelist who was coming to the Shrine Auditorium monthly for miracle services. I did not have a clue who she was but only what he told me. I auditioned for the choir and joined and my first experience to see miracles was sitting in the choir on the platform behind Miss Kuhlman. It was quite an experience to say the least. I did not realize at that time that God was calling me to be an evangelist.
Fast forward. Ministering starting in Bible College, I began to see God move in miraculous ways. This was the beginning of the Charismatic Movement and Jesus Movement. Ministering in churches over the years of many denominations from Pentecostal and everything in between to Catholic churches, I saw miracles that awed me. I remember one such meeting in the One Twenty Fellowship, a ministry in Escondido, California run by Merlin Carothers, a known author in the movement. The presence of God from the beginning of the service was like the building was filled with electricity in the atmosphere. There were not only healings, but the move of God was so powerful I felt like a bystander. I could have sat down and watched God move. People in that service said that they had never seen a move of God like it in those weekly services. It burned a picture in my memory that I have never forgotten and that was almost 50 years ago.
Onto the vision. I was driving south on I-17 in Phoenix thinking about a move of God and back to when I heard Kathryn say that when the healings were taking place that it was like rays of golden sunlight on the individuals as she was “calling out” healings by the Word of Knowledge. All of a sudden while driving God gave me a vision. I cannot explain except that I saw this and also the freeway at the same time. Now almost four years later I can see the vision as it was given to me. It was burned in my memory. I was standing on the platform of a large auditorium with a balcony. The place was packed. I then saw the Glory of God come upon the whole auditorium, upon every person like golden rain falling on the everyone in the auditorium. I truly believe that God was showing me as He has shown others that we are on the verge of experiencing a great move of the Spirit, possibly the Latter Rain the book of Joel talks about. Many in the 1940’s called that the Latter Rain Movement, but many men and women of God are being shown that this is to be a great worldwide outpouring. I believe it. Let us pray and believe God to do what He has said and shown that just might be the last great move of the Spirit before the coming of the Lord. It was prophesied by a prophet over me years ago that this would be bigger than even I could imagine and three in three separate times and places prophesied to me the same thing, a great move of God. It IS Coming!!! Get ready!
