Soldiers HEALED, Word and the Spirit, Pin Point Accurate Words of Knowledge, Azusa NOW on 110th Anniversary Azusa Street Revival Part 5
It is encouraging to see God moving upon an entire generation and hear the harmony of voices crying out for God to pour out His Spirit upon His Church and over the entire Earth. That is exactly what took place at Azusa Now at the Los Angeles Coliseum, when people from all over the world gathered to commemorate the 110thanniversary of the Azusa Street Revival.
As people were worshiping and praising the Lord, God was healing people. It is beautiful when anyone gets healed. What makes this moment even more special, is that it was those who defend our freedom, that were healed. Three men shared their testimonies. After each of them suffered injuries from Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) affecting their hearing, they all experienced severe hearing loss. One man expressed his hearing, because of the blast, this way; “I have such bad crackling that I have to go to the very back of the church when I worship because it’s like a broken speaker. I have to muffle my ear to worship.” But God gave him a new ear. “I’m here and I’m completely healed!” Three men ended up sharing their testimonies as to how the Lord healed them from similar injuries.
It was the Holy Spirit that touched these men, and it was the Holy Spirit that was moving all across the crowds throughout the entire day. As a man that God has used mightily throughout the Body of Christ, Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With A Mission, shared profound wisdom that was characteristic during the powerful outpouring of the Azusa Street Revival. Quoting Smith Wigglesworth, Cunningham stated, “Whenever the Word comes together with the Spirit, we will have the greatest spiritual awakening the world has ever known.” He continues to share this important truth, “That’s where the power is released. When the Word and the Spirit come together.” It is vital that we read our Bibles and we must also yield to the leading and presence of The Holy Spirit.
Cunningham also spoke about the coming spiritual wave of this next move of God and the calling that God has placed upon people 30 years old and younger.
“On that wave that is growing, growing, growing, it is going to be the wave that, those that are 30 and below, you’re going to get to ride the wave, the biggest spiritual wave that has ever taken place in all of history and the rest of us are going to pull you up with jet skis to the top. And, when you’re riding the wave, I’ll tell you what’s going to happen. There’s the foam that comes over the top, after a while. Keep riding it, because there are people that haven’t heard yet. And we’re gonna keep riding it until every person on Earth has the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord.”
ISN’T THIS EXCITING?!! What a powerful declaration and imagery of what God is doing throughout the Earth! This encouraging word that was delivered was definitely seized as the entire audience responded to the Lord, entering into covenant with the Lord. Ruth 4:7 states, “(Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to become final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method of legalizing transactions in Israel.)” The very words of Cunningham are an invitation into what the Lord is doing. It is a divine interruption into the plans that we may be planning. Will we continue on our plans or give our lives to the plans of the Lord? Shoes could be seen, lifted high into the air, all across the coliseum, as thousands responded to this divine interruption.
This is such an orchestration of Heaven carried out by the Holy Spirit. Todd White, who boldly follows the Lord in his life and is followed by many powerful signs and wonders released the mantle of evangelism over an entire generation. White boldly declares these words,
“In the name of Jesus, I thank you that they would be conduits for the Holy Spirit to flow through…that everywhere we go, signs and wonders would flow through our hands; that words of knowledge would flow through your lives right now. I thank you that grassroots evangelism, that normal everyday life, everywhere we go, everywhere we walk, every shopping store we enter, every drugstore we enter. DO YOU WANT THIS??!! DO YOU WANT THIS??!! NOW IS THE TIME!!”
This is so powerful not only to witness but to also be a part of. There is no baby Holy Spirit. There is no teenage Holy Spirit. There is only one Holy Spirit. You can have as much of God as you want in your life.
The Gifts of the Spirit continued to flow as God’s presence increased throughout the Coliseum. So many are absent to the truth that God loves them and has a plan for their life. This simple thought wondering if God knows about them, or any detail of their life, is a question that many may have considered. God not only cares about us but knows us DEEPLY and intimately. God will speak to us about those around us, or those that we may encounter throughout our day, and guide us to tell others that God loves them.
As Shawn Bolz started to speak to the crowd, he began to share a few particular things that the Lord had revealed to him, words of knowledge. He prophetically begins to call these things out, “Is there a Kenny, or a Kenneth Ray and a Trisha Lou who came together?” Much to everyone’s surprise, a couple, standing in the crowd, excitingly begins to wave their hands. “Tell me if these names mean anything to you, David, Esther, John, Sarah. Does that make sense?”Turns out they are Kenny and Trisha’s children. Bolz continues, “God is sending you guys back to Oregon. Does this make sense?” The hands continue to wave confirming his words, but the confirmations don’t stop. Not only does Bolz, continue to share encouraging prophetic words for this couple regarding what the Lord is doing in their lives, but Bolz also shares words of knowledge to another couple in the crowd. It is prophecy, such as this, that demonstrates how much Jesus Christ loves each and every one of us. “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” God not only knows the detailed intricacies of our lives, but He does this because He wants us to know Him. Don’t let this wave pass you by. Watch the full events unfold, hear more of these exciting words, more of the prophetic words of knowledge, and so much more.
