An Awakening is Coming

The buzzword that I've been hearing in Christian circles in recent time is “Awakening.” It seems to me that something is about to shift in the atmosphere, thus ushering in a new move of God. In his article “Seven Components of a Great Life this Year and Some Celebrities will Prophesy” posted on the Elijah List, Brian Simmons stated that an awakening is coming.

He disclosed that recently he had a dream-encounter where he saw stadiums filled with prophets speaking with such power and confirmation that fireworks actually exploded in the meetings!” “It was like Fourth of July and New Year's Eve times 10!” he remarked.

He believes that “God is prophetically speaking to His people telling them to arise, awake, and accept the light of a new day!” This move of God he said “will make the wicked tremble and the truth-seekers humble. God will begin something powerful this year that will open doors of evangelism with signs and wonders.”

So what is it saying to us mainstream Christians who have become so accustomed to the mundane way of life? It may be that God is about ready to do a new thing in our day. Such as a great Worldwide Youth Awakening where youth evangelists, under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, will preach to thousands in packed-out churches and arenas, resulting in thousands being saved, healed and delivered.

But we shouldn't be surprise because that’s like God; He has done it before, and He will do it again. His ways are not our ways, and He'll do whatever it takes to establish His purpose in the world.

People allover the world is searching for God, and the time is right for an outpouring of His manifold presence in the earth. This video "Awakening" shows how hungry people are for the true meaning and purpose of life.

This is a powerful video that demonstrates people’s hunger for God. There isn’t one single person that I know who doesn’t believe that something monumental is happening. Everywhere you go people are searching for that spiritual high! Some are search for it in drugs, while others seek for it in reveling or meditation. But regardless of what they have tried, deep down in their innermost being they know that there's more to life than what they have.

Obviously, as you have seen, God is the answer to what they're seeking. He's the answer to all our problems. The question is will we invite Him to be Lord of our lives? You see, when God formed man from the dust of the ground, He created us as worshipping beings to bring glory to Him. Outside of that life is meaningless, empty and hopeless.

God is going through the earth searching for hearts that are broken and desperate for Him. He's looking for someone who will give Him their all; yes, He wants it all. I believe that He's looking for men like Gideon, Mighty man of Valor (Jud. 6:12), that He can use to bring about a new wave of revival which is long overdue; not men who are overtaken with pride believing that they are all that, and a bag of chips.

Here's the amazing part of what Brian Simmons saw. He observed that the prophets were:
  • Not the prophets that are already accepted and known for startling accuracy with their declarations.
  • Television stars and movie stars that had come to Christ.
  • Actually prophesying with such power that the stadium was shaking!
However, there’s a great joy coming even as there’s great distress in the nations. Shouldn’t the Church above all others, demonstrate a calm, a peace, even a JOY that the world has never tasted? Jesus said, "My Peace I leave with you" (John 14:27); In Nehemiah 8:10 we're told "the Joy of the Lord is your strength," and the Apostle Paul writing to the church at Philippi encourages the believers "My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Phil. 4:19). There is no need that God cannot meet.

In conclusion, according to Brian Simmons God wants this year to be the best year we’ll ever have! We may ask how could it be with economic distress, waywardness among many, discouragement rampant and depression? Well here is his message, an “Apostolic word for what’s coming!” which he is encouraging us not to spend a day in disappointment.
