We are living in an hour where we have seen so many great and mighty men and women of power go home to be with the Lord. That has left us with a great need in the body of Christ and for a lost and dying world! I believe with all my heart that the Lord is raising up a new generation to raise the banner of the gospel high, to draw in a great harvest! There has been much said about a new breed and a new move of God! I wanted to share some prophetic insight on what this emerging new breed will look like and this next move of God that we are entering into.
Many of the revivalists of the first and second great awakenings were circuit riders, such as John Wesley, George Whitfield, Charles Finney, etc. The Lord has been speaking to me about the coming circuit riders; the Lord told me that he is raising up prophets of Glory, those that would move in kingdom power and authority. They will be those that not only move out of gifting, but those that would minister out of the manifest glory of God! The desire of this generation is to be mantled with the very presence and glory of God as Enoch was! What we are seeing is a merging of generations just like Joshua and Caleb, those that will come together to take territory for the kingdom of God! God is building a new wineskin through the older and younger; these generations are coming together in unity to see His kingdom come and His will be done!
This company of prophets, these circus riders that the lord is equipping in this hour, will be those that God uses to birth a movement and release something fresh and something new!
"Don't Miss the Wave"
I truly feel that we are on the verge of seeing a fresh wind from heaven! It almost reminds me of how a surfer catches a wave; they are observing, anticipating the right wave, ready to take off! I want to compare this next move to a mighty wave. It will be great and it will be mighty! Every wave that God releases is different and unique. Even as every generation has their own move or wave! If we are looking for the same wave to come, we will not be prepared nor ready for what is released and like a wave, in just moments, it can pass us by! Am I saying to wait for revival or awakening to come before we act? Absolutely not. Our mandate remains the same: to enforce God's kingdom on the earth and see transformation! Our focus remains on the harvest and the purpose of the great commission. Yet, there are times of refreshing that come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:20).
There are revivals and movements of the Spirit that God breathes on, even for just a season, to revive and awaken us for the purpose of harvest! Many years ago, I released a word on the Elijah List about a great awakening in America, where I saw stadiums filled with thousands of people! There was a great corporate anointing, and signs, wonders and miracles happened out of the atmosphere! God will use many in this next move; it will not just be one man or one woman, but God will use many. I feel in this hour that God is preparing these circuit riders to be used by His Glory! I want to compare these coming prophets to Moses, Elijah and Elisha they where high-ranking prophets. They will bring restoration to the utterance gifts, power gifts and the Lord's manifest presence in greater measure than we have seen even in past moves! God is looking and recruiting this next breed for a great awakening to take place in America just as the first and second great awakening! God is sending forth those who will have an ear to the ground, those that learn to hear His voice in secret and declare what they hear publicly with great power! Those whose voices have been found in the cave, not on the platform! Those who not only know how to minister upon platforms, but know how to minister to the Lord! Our prayer should be, "Lord raise us up, and prepare us for the harvest!"
