Double Portion Release


 

Yesterday, 2-21-18, was a monumental day for the world. Billy Graham, one of the greatest generals of the faith who has faithfully stewarded the call of God on his life in preaching the Gospel to over 215 million people, passed into glory and joined the great cloud of witnesses in Heaven. From the moment I awoke, there was a strong drawing in my heart and spirit to recommit my ‘yes’ and obedience to the Lord, even before I knew of his passing. All day this cry oozed out of my being, unable to be shut up, like the fire Jeremiah describes in Jeremiah 20:9. Throughout the entire day, I felt such a powerful move of the Holy Spirit and a massive shifting taking place in the spirit realm. The entirety of it was overwhelming. 

 

There have been numerous prophetic words come forth over the years that the greatest harvest in history will come forth and many have said that this release would occur after the passing of Billy Graham. Today, 2-22-18, is truly a historic shifting day for the future of humanity. It is no coincidence that he left this earth on 2-21 and today, a new dawn, is 2-22. 

 

I was taken up into a vision in the night last night of the releasing of Billy Graham’s mantle upon this generation. There were lightnings and thunderings, the ground shook at the power being released. All of creation was responding to what was taking place. I awoke with such awe and wonder at what this means for the Church and for the world, as well as a strong stirring in my Spirit to take hold of it and run with it. 

 

Over the past few years the Lord has been giving me words that the greatest revival the world has yet to see is coming soon and that it is important to make myself ready. Today I believe the Lord is saying that this day begins the day of redemption for America. The releasing of a double portion of Billy Graham’s mantle and of the keys of the house of David are coming upon a generation of ‘YES’ men and women (Isaiah 22:22). They are ones who are wild, crazy, and untamed. No borders or boundary lines can contain their zeal, fervor, and Message. This move of the Spirit is not for the faint of heart, comfortable and complacent cookie-cutters. There will be no structure or molds you can fit it into. 

The ushering in of the greatest harvest of souls is beginning to come on the wings of the wind. Every unwilling soul will be cast aside and dealt with so that nothing on earth and in hell can stop what is coming. Fire from Heaven is coming forth in power even now. 

 

Isaiah‬ ‭32:1-20

Look, a righteous king is coming! And honest princes will rule under him. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land. Then everyone who has eyes will be able to see the truth, and everyone who has ears will be able to hear it. Even the hotheads will be full of sense and understanding. Those who stammer will speak out plainly. In that day ungodly fools will not be heroes. Scoundrels will not be respected. For fools speak foolishness and make evil plans. They practice ungodliness and spread false teachings about the Lord. They deprive the hungry of food and give no water to the thirsty. The smooth tricks of scoundrels are evil. They plot crooked schemes. They lie to convict the poor, even when the cause of the poor is just. But generous people plan to do what is generous, and they stand firm in their generosity. Listen, you women who lie around in ease. Listen to me, you who are so smug. In a short time—just a little more than a year— you careless ones will suddenly begin to care. For your fruit crops will fail, and the harvest will never take place. Tremble, you women of ease; throw off your complacency. Strip off your pretty clothes, and put on burlap to show your grief. Beat your breasts in sorrow for your bountiful farms and your fruitful grapevines. For your land will be overgrown with thorns and briers. Your joyful homes and happy towns will be gone. The palace and the city will be deserted, and busy towns will be empty. Wild donkeys will frolic and flocks will graze in the empty forts and watchtowers until at last the Spirit is poured out on us from Heaven. Then the wilderness will become a fertile field, and the fertile field will yield bountiful crops.Justice will rule in the wilderness and righteousness in the fertile field. And this righteousness will bring peace. Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in safety, quietly at home. They will be at rest. Even if the forest should be destroyed and the city torn down, the Lord will greatly bless His people. Wherever they plant seed, bountiful crops will spring up. Their cattle and donkeys will graze freely.”

 

The Lord is saying, “Who will go for us? Whom shall we send?” Every fiber of my being is screaming out, “YES, LORD!!! I WILL GO! SEND ME!!!” I will love You with my YES and with my obedience, Jesus. May my simple obedience change history. 

 

Where are those that will stand up and say YES with me? Where are those that will give it all away to GO to the ends of the earth for the Man Who is worthy of everything we have to give? The man Who is worthy to receive the reward of His suffering? May every nation, every soul come to You, Jesus, because of the simple obedience of Your sons and daughters, oh God.

The Importance of the One

As our time in Norway draws closer and closer to an end, God has been speaking to me more and more about the importance of the One.  When we set out on this faith journey a month and a half ago, I thought it would look remarkably different than it has.  The majority of our time so far has been encouraging and strengthening individuals in an intimate setting.  We have been so privileged to encourage and build up Kjetil, his roommate Simon, his parents, and another couple that is a part of a small house church here.  Besides this, just sharing with the people we meet at different gatherings and settings seems to be how God is using us.

I have been feeling a little discouraged on and off that we have not had opportunities to speak to any churches or ministries so far.  In discussing this with my wife, she unleashed some powerful revelation and wisdom upon me, that I knew, but needed to be reminded of at that moment.  When we are ministering, encouraging, and strengthening individuals, this is building the church.  Each person is a vital and integral part of the church and every effort we make to strengthen and encourage them is making a difference in the church and the Kingdom of God is being built up.

My wife’s wise words reminded me of some ponderings of the past.  One of the first things I think of is a quote that was said to the famous D.L. Moody by a very little known friend of his.  Henry Varley, during conversation in a park, said to D.L. Moody, “The world has yet to see what God will do with and for and through and in and by the man who is fully consecrated to Him.”  After dwelling on this word for a short time, Moody’s response was, “I will try my utmost to be that man.”  Moody went on to be one of the most influential preachers in the U.S. and U.K. of his time.  This one man was changed by one comment, and millions of people were saved because of it.

What would happen in our time, if our attitude was the same? What if two or ten or 1,000 people stood up and said that we will be fully consecrated and obedient to the Lord to the best of our abilities?  Looking on all the revivals, movements, and godly happenings of the past, they can all be traced back to one man’s decision to follow the Lord completely.  Any organization, company, or business has one man that they say founded this company.  This man of vision, perseverance, and hard work gathered people around him to make the dream come true.  Loren Cunnigham and YWAM, Reinhard Bonnke and African Crusades, Billy Graham and U.S. Crusades, Bill Johnson and Bethel, Mike Bickle and IHOP, Lou Engle and The Call, Heidi Baker and Iris Ministries, Sean Feucht and The Burn 24-7, Stephen Evans and the Central American Crusades, Jack Hayford and The Church on the Way… these are just some of the well known people of our time who decided to be completely consecrated and  obedient to the Lord.  Each of these people in their own way have made a difference.  This does not even say anything about the people of the past who stood up no matter what the price to them in order that Jesus’ name would be glorified in and through them.

My challenge to you is that you would think about this statement, “The world has yet to see what God will do with YOU, for YOU, through YOU, in YOU, and by YOU if YOU are fully consecrated to Him!”  The world needs what you, completely consecrated and obedient to God, have to offer.  Really think about this and what your decision will be.  If you do not choose to be this kind of man like Moody did, you are choosing to fade into the oblivion of cultural Christians and not become what God has created you to become, one who turns the world upside down (Acts 17:6).  You are created for greatness!!!  Whether you become great or not depends upon your decision whether to be completely consecrated and obedient!!!

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!  “With everything that I am and have, I will be that man!!!”
