Revival and Reformation—I Am Sending a Tsunami of My Presence!

Big ocean wave breaking the shore

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. | Habakkuk 2:14

Recently, as I was in a posture of prayer, I clearly heard the word “tsunami.” Shortly after, I felt the Lord lead me to look up the word’s definition. As I researched some more, this is the definition I found, according to Oxford Dictionaries:

tsunami (NOUN)

  • A long, high sea wave caused by an earthquake or other disturbance.
  • An arrival or occurrence of something in overwhelming quantities or amounts.

I began to hear the Lord saying to me, “You have seen the trickle, now get ready for Me to open up the floodgates and release unto you a tsunami of My blessings that you will not even have room to contain!”

“…see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the Lord Almighty. “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the Lord Almighty (Malachi 3:10-13).

“I will send revival to your land and cause the very river of My Presence to flow in the most dry and parched places (Isaiah 41:18). For truly, if My people—who I have called by name—will humble themselves and pray, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).”

I sense the Lord saying, “Revival and reformation is coming to America, starting in the White House and flowing down from there, going forth into the highways and byways. It will be an unconstrained tsunami of My Presence, and the glory of this revival will be greater than even that of the former days (In reference to Haggai 2:9). Pray for your President and for those in authority over you, for the king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; I guide it wherever I please.‘ (Proverbs 21:1).” 

“I Will Pour out My Spirit on All Flesh”

“I will visit your schools, for I will be brought back into the education system. I will cause revival to break out among the youth in this hour. Surely, I am moving greatly upon your children and those of the younger generations. They shall dream dreams, they shall prophesy, and they shall arise with great boldness and tongues of fire. I will cause little children to speak My words, and the conviction of the Lord will fall and pierce even the hardest of hearts. Truly, unless you come with the faith of a child, you cannot enter into My Kingdom (Matthew 18:3).

“It is written, ‘From the mouth of infants and nursing babes [the Lord has] established strength’ (Psalm 8:2). Listen, as their words shall confound the wise and pierce the hearts of those who would seem to be the most educated. For I, the Lord, have chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and I have chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong (1 Corinthians 1:27).

“I am also calling my generals to arise: the very ones who have been trained in the backside of the desert. They have been refined and prepared, and now they are coming forth as pure gold. They are My fearless warriors, and they have been trained and equipped for battle. My generals will arise, wielding their swords of truth and causing much damage to the kingdom of darkness. They will not retreat nor back down in the face of adversity, nor will they fail to speak My words of truth.”

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed (1 Peter 1:6-7).

The Intercessory Bride

In this hour, the Lord is stirring a holy hunger in His Bride. He is awakening the Bride from her place of complacency, and she will arise and go forth, recovering all of the spoils. 

I hear Him saying, “Wake up, wake up, O Sleeper! Arise, so that Christ may shine on you (Ephesians 5:14).” We have truly entered into a new season, and we can no longer do things the way that we have always done them. It says in Luke that to whom much is given, much will be required (Luke 12:48). As the Lord is bringing massive increase and promotion to those whom have been faithful, even more will be required of them. He will enable you to steward well the increase that He is about to release upon you. Surely, you will be one who is able to help finance the Kingdom!

The Lord is wooing His Bride into a place of prayer and intercession. We need to be as the wise virgins, constantly having oil in our lamps…unlike the foolish virgins, who were unprepared for the coming of the Bridegroom, and were lulled to sleep (In reference to Matthew 25:1-13).

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16).

A Holy Spirit Wildfire

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder (Isaiah 9:2-3).

The Lord is saying today, “Revival and reformation is happening now, and it will spread like wildfire, even going forth into the nations. For I have heard the cry of My burning ones who have said, ‘Here I am, Lord. Send me!’ I will cause them to arise and shine with great boldness, and I will fill their mouths with My words (Psalm 81:10). Their words will not fall to the ground, but they will go forth and accomplish the purpose for which I have sent it.”

Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
 See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn” (Isaiah 60:1-3).

You Have Shifted into Your New Season

“For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.” | Isaiah 62:1-3

There is much angelic movement and heavenly activity that is happening behind the scenes. Truly your season has shifted, and you have entered into the new. I believe that the Lord would say to you today, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland (Isaiah 43:19). Do not look back; now is the time to move forward!”

You have stayed the course and have refused to give up on the promises He has given you, even in the face of onslaught. The Lord of Hosts is honoring your faithfulness and endurance. As it is written in the Book of Psalms, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me” (Psalm 138:7).

“Rejoice!” Again, I say, “Rejoice!” Praise the Lord for all He has brought you through, and all that He will continue to do. Even now, the Lord is parting your red seas: those very things that have stood between you and your promise. Take heart, for you will cross over with great ease and possess the land!

30011591092_9665c8deea_o.jpg

I believe that the Lord is networking you with like-minded people who have the tools that you need to carry out the God-given vision burning within you. All that has previously been held back from you—that which has seemed impossible—will now come bursting forth with little to no effort on your part. Simply stand still, and see the deliverance of your God (Exodus 14:13).

Today I prophecy that there will be no more delay. You are coming out of your tight and confined place and into a wide, spacious place of victory. The very promises that you have been and contending for and have held onto for many years are going to manifest NOW! Your season has radically shifted, and explosive breakthrough is going to manifest. Truly, “you will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours” (Psalm 128:2). The Lord is going to give you double recompense and restoration where you had once experienced tremendous loss and heartache. Indeed, He is calling you by a new name. 

No longer will they call you Deserted,
or name your land Desolate.
But you will be called Hephzibah,
and your land Beulah;
for the Lord will take delight in you,
and your land will be married (Isaiah 62:4).

Red field

Again I tell you, you have shifted into your new season, and tremendous breakthrough is happening now. Get ready, get ready, get ready! For you will stand in awe of all that God is releasing upon you. 

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people . . .” (Amos 9:13 MSG). 

Help Is on the Way

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;  the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. | Psalm 121

As you look to the Lord, He will make a way for you where there would seem to be no way. He, alone, is your present help in time of need. Difficult situations will bow their knee to the Name of Jesus, as you continue to keep your eyes on Him!

The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective (James 5:16). Your prayers are making a difference in the Kingdom, as I see prayer bowls tipping in heaven! I speak a renewal of strength to weary hearts, and I release the joy of the Lord over you today. I release faith to look beyond what you currently see in the natural. Circumstances are coming into divine alignment, and the Lord is making your crooked places straight. He is going to do what only He can do for you, for our God is a good and faithful Father to His children.

He reached down from on high and took hold of me;
    he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy,
    from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster,
    but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place;
    he rescued me because he delighted in me (Psalm 18:16-19).

 

A Season of Victory

28295834543_864f79acc3

You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured on me. My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes. | Psalm 92:10-11

The Lord is exalting those who have remained humble and have stayed faithful to their calling, even in the times of extreme adversity and testing. Many have been in hiding, and the Lord is about ready to bring those very people to the front lines. The Lord’s favor, promotion, and pleasure will be evident in your life, as you enter into a new season of victory in Christ! Like Joseph, you have been betrayed, thrown into a pit, and have encountered much adversity. Nevertheless, God is using it all for your good, and  you are about ready to see and amazing turn around!

Your character has been developed, as you’ve allowed the Lord to have His way in your life. You have continued to trust Him, even when things didn’t make sense and you could not see how the final picture would play out. Today, the Lord is honoring your faithfulness! He is so very pleased with you and your obedience to His calling on your life.

“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted” (Matthew 23:12).

Get ready for an incredible season of favor, promotion, and increase. God is getting ready to turn everything around, and you will be in awe of the radical demonstration  of the Lord’s love and goodness in your life! “He will give [you] a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:3, NLT). Even your enemies to be at peace with you, because your ways have been pleasing to the Father.

Your season has shifted; prepare to enter into your season of victory!

The Power of Our Decree

“You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you” | Job 22:28

The Lord has recently been impressing on me the power decreeing, and how important it is for us to line up our thoughts and our words with His. Yesterday, as I was praying for my family and asking the Lord to bring in extra provisions, I heard Him say to me, “It is time to open up your mouth and decree.” It is written in Proverbs that, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit” (Proverbs 18:21). I truly believe that the Lord is desiring to bring the Bride of Christ into the awareness of the authority that we have in Him. Today, I believe that the Lord would say, “You do not have to beg and grovel for something that I have already made available to you, for all of My promises in Jesus Christ are yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20). See yourself as you are: seated in heavenly places with Me, lacking nothing. Now, open your mouth and decree a thing, and it will be established for you!

I am inviting you to step out in faith, as you open your mouth and decree this prophetic declaration out loud. Truly the Lord’s word will not return void, but it will accomplish the purpose for which it was sent (Isaiah 55:11).


I am a well cared for and highly favored child of the Most High. Everything that I have need for has already been provided for me by my Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. By faith, I receive everything that I am in need of. I decree and declare that I lack nothing, for no good thing will the Lord withhold from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).

I declare that my roots go down deep, and that I have no fear—even in what would appear to be a season of drought (Jeremiah 17:8). The angel of the Lord encamps around me, and I shall fear no evil (Proverbs 34:7). Finances and resources are flowing into my hands! Wealth and riches are in my house, and I open my hands to help the needy (Proverbs 31:20). I am blessed, so that I can be a blessing in return.  

I am the lender, and not the borrower. I am the head, and not the tail; I am above, and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:12-13). I am seated in heavenly places with Jesus Christ, and I have been called to rule and reign with Him (Ephesians 2:6). For all that Jesus has, He has freely made available to me.

I rebuke the devourer in the mighty Name of My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the Word says that he comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). By faith, I wield my sword, and I take back all that is rightfully mine. The Word of God says that when the thief is caught, he must repay seven fold.

Even now, the Lord is making a way for me where there would seem to be no way (Isaiah 43:16-19). The backbone of lack and poverty has been broken, and I decree that I have more than enough in Jesus Christ! All of my needs are met, in Jesus’ Name.

I thank you in advance, Lord, for the fulfillment of Your promises in my life. Blessed be Your wonderful Name.

Calling Forth the Bride

Let him lead me to the banquet hall,
and let his banner over me be love. | Song of Songs 2:4

Recently, while in worship, the Lord gave me a picture of Jesus and I dancing together. Jesus was overjoyed, and I was overwhelmed by His great love and adoration for me. Then, the picture suddenly changed, and we went from dancing together to standing on a shore. Together, hand and hand, we began to walk out into the deep waters. I saw joy in Jesus’ eyes, even as we left the shore. Though I did not know where He was leading me, I was completely unafraid; I knew that my Savior was by my side, holding my hand. It was then that I knew what the Lord was showing me: It is more safe to be in the deep waters with Jesus than to remain on the shore—confined to our comfort zone—without Him.

The Lord is Calling Forth His Bride to a Greater Season of Intimacy

As I have been pondering on what the Lord has shown me, I sense that He is not only speaking to me through these pictures, but to the Bride of Christ in her completeness.

I hear the Lord saying, “My Bride, I am calling you forth to arise from your slumber and enter into a time of intimacy with your Bridegroom. Let go of the distractions that so easily entangle you, and come away with Me.”

 “Arise, my darling,
    my beautiful one, come with me.
 See! The winter is past;
    the rains are over and gone.
 Flowers appear on the earth;
    the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
    is heard in our land.
The fig tree forms its early fruit;
    the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
    my beautiful one, come with me” (Song of Songs 2:10-13).

Just as I could feel Jesus’ absolute pleasure over me as we were dancing together, I believe that the Lord wants to reveal to His Bride that same pleasure that He has for her. I believe that the Lord is showing me the heart of love that He extends towards His Bride. Song of Songs 4:7 says, “You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.” This verse so clearly illustrates how your Bridegroom—Jesus Christ—sees you. You have no spot or blemish in His eyes, and He says that you are altogether lovely. Wow! How He is ravished by us! Even in our weakness, this is how the Lord sees us.

I believe that the Lord is wanting His Bride to come into the full revelation of the depth of His great love for her. As it says in Zephaniah 3:17, in His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. Do you realize that the God who created the universe sings over you? He is the One who designed the mountains and crafted the seas, and He is the same Lord who was, who is, and who is to come. 

And this same God delights in you.

What an amazing and intimate love that your Bridegroom has for you, His Beloved. Regardless of the season of circumstances that you are facing, His love for you is fierce, steady, unchanging.

I sense that the Lord is awakening weary hearts back to life. Those who have been hard pressed on every side, listen closely: the King is singing His love song over you. His beautiful love is healing hearts, awakening them once again. As we spend time in the secret place, cultivating our intimacy with our Bridegroom, we will truly discover that He, alone, is all that we need.

Walking out into the Deep

It is in the place of abiding in intimacy with the Lord that He will reveal His strategies for breakthrough in our lives. As we take time to be with Him and align our will with His, our God will show us the answers and solutions.

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).

The Bride of Christ will receive deeper revelation, as He will release the very blueprints of heaven into your spirit. The Lord will show you the steps that you need to take in order to walk into the greatness that He has prepared for you. Just as I had pictured Jesus and I walking into the deep waters without fear, I sense that we as the Bride are about to walk out into the deep unknown with Him. In this season of transition and change, Jesus is beckoning us to leave our comfort zones and, hand in hand, walk out in faith with Him.

The Lord continues to remind me, “Where I lead is the safest and best place to be.” Even as Abraham was told by the Lord to leave what was comfortable and familiar and go to the land that the Lord would reveal to Him, we as the Bride are being called to trust in the guidance of our Bridegroom. Do not fear, for Christ will be faithful, as you obey Him and follow where He leads you.

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he made his home in the promised land-like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise (Hebrews 11:8-11).

There are exciting adventures and surprises in store, as you continue to follow the Lord’s leading! “‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’—the things God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Awakening to the Fullness of Our Identity

The Lord is rooting out His Bride’s deep fears and insecurities: the very things that have been strongholds in people’s live. Indeed, He is ridding her of any entanglements that have been holding her back. Jesus Christ is jealous for His Bride, and He is bringing her into a new-found place of freedom that she has not previously known or experienced before! Hindrances are being removed, and grave clothes are coming off. Look and see! The beautifully adorned Bride of Christ is arising and coming forth victoriously!

I believe that the Lord is saying,

“For far too long, the enemy has kept My Bride living beneath her true potential. But now, she will arise and come forth as the beautiful, overcoming, fearless warrior that I have designed her to be. My Bride is the head, and not the tail; she is above, and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13).”

“It is Time to Unsheathe Your Sword!”

He made my mouth like a sharpened sword,
    in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me into a polished arrow
    and concealed me in his quiver (Isaiah 49:2)

“My Bride, it is time to arise and unsheathe your sword! You will rise from the very circumstances where the enemy had sought to keep you trapped in defeat. Now, you will come forth, wielding your sword of victory. My Bride is not defeated; she is an overcomer, and I have given her the spirit of a warrior. She will slay giants, and she will take back the ruins of former generations (Isaiah 61:4).

“My Beloved, I am giving you all the spoils; I will give you riches and treasures stored in secret places (Isaiah 45:3). You shall fling wide the ancient doors that have been previously closed off. You will set the captives free, and bind up the brokenhearted (Isaiah 61:1).

“The enemy has tried to plague My Bride with fear and insecurity, in hopes of slowing her down. But do not fear, because he knows that when My Bride comes into the reality of who she in Me, she will be fearless and unstoppable! Even now, her praise will torment the enemy.

“I am now calling forth the Bride of Christ! I am awakening her to the fullness of her identity in Me. She is My radiant, overcoming, warrior-Bride, and she will be a force to be reckoned with.”

I see the glorious Bride of Christ, beautifully arrayed in all of her splendor. She will be found coming up out of the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved (Song of Songs 8:5).

Your wilderness season has not been in vain; it has prepared you for the victory you shall now walk in. It is time to eat the fruits of your harvest!

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you” (Isaiah 60:1).

I Am Your Provider

And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. | Matthew 6:28-33

My Beloved, I desire to show you how well I can take care of you and how I long to provide for your every need. I am a good and generous Father; if you, My precious child, ask for bread, I will not give you a stone (Matthew 7:9). Know that My eye is on the sparrow; how much more am I watching over you? For I know your request before a word is even formed on your tongue, and I am intimately acquainted with your ways.

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrow (Matthew 10:29-31).

I am the God of abundance. Is there anything two difficult for me? I, alone, am your source; I own the cattle on a thousand hills, and My supply will never run dry. Take heart, for I am lovingly watching over you, providing for your every need.

My child, do not fear during these times of transition, nor put your security in anything other than Me. While people and circumstances may change, I am the God who changes not (Malachi 3:6). Ask big of Me, for I am ready and willing to help you in your time of need. Let Me reveal Myself to you as Jehovah Jireh: the God who provides.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1).

Fear not, for fear has to do with punishment, but My perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18). My peace will be your portion, as you look to Me and continue to trust in My goodness. Do not worry about the future; I have already gone ahead of you and have prepared the way for you. Even as Ruth received My favor (as I led Boaz to instruct his workers to provide for her physical needs), I will also cause My favor and goodness to manifest in your life. Indeed, I will open up My provision for you in such a way that you will not have to strive to attain it. Continue to make Me your heart’s highest delight and your number one priority. Seek first My Kingdom above all else, and all these other things that you are in need of shall be added unto you, as well (Matthew 6:33).

This is a time to cease from your striving and enter into My rest. Know and have confident assurance that your Father has everything under control. Nothing escapes My notice. I am meeting all of your needs (both big and small, alike), as I am working all things together for your good (Romans 8:28). Continue to look to Me; put your trust in the Lord! I am your provider, and I am faithful.
