"And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness." --Acts 4:31
This watchword will require some back story. Leading up to March of 2014, I received an urgent warning from the Lord about an impending earthquake in California. This was something I prayed about with close friends, but kept private. Others were receiving similar warnings. That year, I believe the Lord turned what would have been a "big event" into a small event through prayer: a 4.4 magnitude earthquake did come on St. Patrick's day of that year, followed by a 5.1 magnitude earthquake on March 28, 2014.
I also had a strange prophetic experience in March of 2014, which I believe may apply to this month. As I was in my kitchen, washing the dishes, I was earnestly praying for the West Coast in response to the words the Lord had given at that time. I was suddenly filled with holy boldness and declared,
"Don't let the enemy decide when this earthquake happen. Don't even let the angels decided. Let your holy people decide, as they gather in holy counsel."
As soon as I said, "...let your holy people decide," I heard a sound outside of my window that sounded like crystal shattering and an explosion. At the moment this sound erupted, all the power went out in the house for two minutes. My dog began barking at the place where the sound came from. My boys ran to me and asked what had happened. What happened is that I tapped into something on the Father's heart, and power was released as a result. There was no natural explanation for the power outage or the strange explosive sound.
The reason I share this story is because when this happened, I also saw something which I believe may apply to this month. In March of 2014, I saw this great earthquake held back and split up into smaller ones. However, I also saw a great cloud of glory positioned over the Pacific Ocean, signifiying a wave of unprecedented glory, signs, wonders, and a harvest of souls which would have to wait until the saints gathered in holy assembly to decide that it was time. When I saw this cloud, I realized that the earthquake was delayed...but so was the cloud of glory and harvest that will accompany it. When I saw this, I felt that the Father was longing to bring the shaking and the glory I saw unfolding, but He is waiting for us to agree with Him. I am posting these words now because I believe these things are now at the door.
I want to be clear in prophesying that a major seismic event is coming to the West Coast very soon. I would not be suprised if this is even timed with the Azusa Now event, although the exact timing is not clear to me. The Acts 4 earthquake happened when those who experienced Pentecost the first time gathered again in holy consecration to call forth a second wave of glory and harvest. When they did, a "glory quake" shook the whole place where they assembled in holy counsel. Likewise, the purpose of this "glory quake" is to announce the greater glory. Its purpose is not to bring death and destruction, but to serve as a demarcation line between the "early house" and the "latter house" of Haggai 2. The prophet Haggai wrote:
"And my Spirit remains among you. Do not fear.’ 6 “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.7 I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty.8 ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LordAlmighty.9 ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”--Haggai 2:5-9, NIV
The first thing this "glory quake" will do is shake down the walls man has built. The "former house" of denominational walls and religious culture cannot hold the greater glory. The walls that man has built to keep the Spirit of the Lord out of the church and to separate different streams in the Body are about to be shaken to the ground. When this seismic event occurs, it will shake off ungodly prohibitions and restrictions that man has set in place to limit how, when, and where God can move. This second wave of Pentecost will flood even more places than the movement that began in 1906 or the charismatic renewal--it will release a wave of glory and harvest that will transform the Body of Christ as we know it and begin to flood through major cities, bringing glory, harvest, and awakening.
I believe that now is the time for us to let the glory came in such a manner that the "whole region" is shaken. This will not bring death and destruction, but the inauguration of the greater glory, harvest, and unity that we have longed for.
Get ready for a massive move of God, beginning on the West Coast.
