Ears to Hear

Many senior prophets on the international stage are hearing the same message as the one from Andrew that I have posted under his title “Fire kills viruses:” This time of lockdown is a time of preparation; the season of unleavened bread between Passover and Pentecost. It is a time for us to get rid of the “leaven” – the unwanted clutter, whether it is emotional, physical or spiritual – in our lives. We know that the devil only comes to kill, steal or destroy; and the death and destruction caused by coronavirus is obviously in his territory. But God always has a higher purpose in what He permits the enemy to do, and His purpose is to bring a revival on Earth that will bring many souls into His Kingdom.

Just as the Israelites in Egypt put the blood of a lamb on their lintels and stayed in their houses so that the plague would pass them over, we believe in the power of the blood of Jesus to keep us safe from this coronavirus plague. This year the festival of Passover actually coincided with Easter. Last August God spoke to one of the senior prophets that I mentioned, Chuck Pierce, and said “In 2020 Passover will be Passover for my people.” This has happened: we are staying in our houses until the plague has passed over. But when we come out, God wants us to “Go out.” Pentecost is coming, and, like the apostles, we need to go out in the power of His Spirit. Because if we don’t, it won’t just be the plague that passes us over, but it will be Pentecost as well; and the coming great revival will be something that happens in other churches, other cities.

About 30 years ago, David Wilkerson (author of The Cross and the Switchblade) prophesied that there would be a plague that would go round the world, and that would be followed by a third great awakening. There are many who believe, and I am one, that “This is That which was spoken of by the prophet” (as in the words of Peter at the first Pentecost). If we don’t truly know the power, the person, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit in our own lives, now is the time to come before the Lord Jesus and ask Him to introduce you to the Comforter.

“Who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
