We have been blessed with a couple of memorable visits by Charles Shamp, who engages his listeners with warm, long eye-contact thereby speaking one-to-one. It was fascinating for me because every time we locked eyeballs what he said was directly relevant to what had been on my mind – but much more, each time it enabled me to gain fresh insights into those things! Over the years I’ve encountered many anointed teachers but this Holy Spirit gifting is rare.
Last Friday, Steve Shulz introduced a prophetic word Charles has received for the UK as follows:
It is true that many great revivals have had their genesis in the British Isles. I’ve been to several hotspots myself, including the place of the 1904 Welsh revival in Wales, and on the Isle of Lewis off the Coast of Scotland.
Being from the USA, it’s easy for us to see revivals only from our own viewpoint on our own land. But when we go out and about to visit famous birthplaces of God’s revivals, our hearts and minds are changed to see that God SO LOVED THE ENTIRE EARTH that He gave His Son JESUS.
Lord, send revival and awakening to Great Britain… And send it to our own lands as well!! Be encouraged and blessed by this word! Enjoy!
Here’s the full text, as published by Steve at Elijah List and notice that, once again, a ‘major shift’ is spoken of:
Prophetic Word for the UK: God’s Glory Will Be On Display This Spring
Church History in the UK
When we study the history of revival in the earth over the past several centuries, we can almost single handily point to the United Kingdom as a major hot spot and catalyst for what the Holy Spirit was doing at that time. Almost every major shift of reformation or revival started on these Island nations.
Whether we are discussing the First and Second Great Awakenings, or go further back and discuss the mystics and catholic miracle workers that walked the shores of England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales – God has always seemed to release the fresh movement of the Holy Spirit on these Islands that has gone on to affect the entire earth.
My love for Church history and the moves of the Spirit caused me to recognize that what took place within these nations directly affected America and the move of the Spirit in my nation.
Although we are an ocean away, we are connected in the realm of the Spirit, and as the song of Heaven would arise over the UK, it would carry all the way to the shores of America and revival would begin to come forth in these United States.
Over the past several years as I have been traveling into the UK to minister, my greatest hope and prayer has been that God would once again ignite these Islands with the wild fire of Heaven. From the moment that I first stepped into a meeting in the nation of Wales back in 2010, I could feel something fresh was being birthed in the Spirit, something organic, something that would turn the world upside down!
Intercession and Weeping
Several weeks ago as I was ministering in a series of meetings in England, with my good friend Munday Martin, God began to show up in the most powerful way, both within the nightly meetings as well as during the street outreach in the afternoon time.
There were nights where during our preaching, young people would come in off of the streets and walk to the front asking, “What must we do to be saved?” With no alter call or invitation for people to accept Jesus, they were coming to the alter to be born again. The harvest was just that ripe!
On Friday, February 21, as the team gathered for a time of fellowship, the Spirit of intercession came unexpectedly into our friend’s home. This was just hours before we were to travel into Lowestoft, the place of the English revival that took place in 1921. It was a revival that went for eighteen months that saw many people come to Christ. A Spirit of intercession came on the team and we all began to pray with fervency.
During that time I found myself on the floor weeping with such a heavy burden from the Lord for the UK. Just as spontaneous as the intercession, so too was a word of the Lord over England. What I have discovered is that what is often released as a mystery in the form of intercession and tongues (if we are faithful to wait upon the Lord), will be revealed as “revelation in prophecy” to show us the future plan of God in a nation so that we will be ready when it comes.
This was the word that came forth:
“The wilderness and winter season in England is coming to an end and the people would sing with great joy as it comes. This barren land will once again celebrate and flowers will burst forth in spring, bursting into blossom like a symphony of song and color. God’s glory will be on display this spring.
“Those who have been weary will be strengthened in their knees. Those who were lame will leap with joy. Those who have been fearful will revive with courage. This is a season and time to take heart. God is coming in a fresh way.
“The people will say, ‘God is here, right here, on His way to put things right in our nation. Yes He has come! He will save us!’ The blind eyes will be opened, deaf ears will hear once again. Those who felt they had no voice will break into a song that Heaven has come!“
The Lord spoke to me that a major shift in the Spirit would come in the spring and wells that were capped over would be opened once again. I felt The Lord speak to me that there are springs of water that will burst out in the Springtime and fresh streams will flow.
It will spring up in the Spring! Watch for it! They will find natural springs in the Spring and this will be a sign of what God is doing in the Spirit. People are going to drink of natural springs and it will be a sign of a new prophetic movement in the nation.
God is changing the waters from bitter to drinkable. New prophetic voices will come forth this year that will cause the axe head to float. There will be signs and wonders and prophets that will move with the government of God. They will decree a thing and it will be established!
But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed. And the man of God said, “Where fell it?” And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim. Therefore said he, “Take it up to thee”. And he put out his hand, and took it. (2 Kings 6:5-7)
Overall, I believe that this word is for all of the United Kingdom and God will use England as a catalyst for revival that will spring into Scotland, Ireland, and Wales and eventually will touch the world. What was left unfulfilled in previous generations will be fulfilled in this one.
There will be voices that will come from the wilderness. Men and women, that up until this point no one had even known their names, will come with the word of the Lord and an axe will be in their hand to lay at the root of the religious tree. They will cut off the old system. The old religious roots that made the waters so bitter will go and there will be new trees planted in their stead.
These will be trees of righteousness. These will be trees for the healing of the nations. These will be trees for an awakening that will touch the nations!
I am greatly encouraged by what the Lord has shown me and I know we are on the verge of a fresh great awakening that will begin in England and the United Kingdom. Remember friends to take heart in this spring season. Heaven is at hand!
