Over the past year there’s been a strong, strident sound around during worship times. Is it simply the rhythm to contemporary praise songs?
A Saturday Summer evening last year, in a woodsman’s shack hidden in the woods by Lasham airfield, 26 people met for Spirit-led praise and inspiration. In between the bars of music I could imagine an enormous steam train slowly move off and gather momentum. Pumping engine, slip-stream and many wagons’ wheels clangity-clank non-stop over unending rails for mile upon mile, as across a vast open prairie. On and on and on, and we can feel the increasing strength of the holy wind…
Again, I catch the sound in Autumn during Bishop Hamon and Dr Stone’s meeting at Windsor. But now it can be distinctly sensed as from a massed troop of the heavenly host cantering in the sky towards the gross darkness around that town.
Then they charge! The invisible steed’s hooves make a soundless yet distinct thunder that resonates and rumbles on and on and on – demonic strongholds get thoroughly dispersed.
Then on Resurrection Sunday the sound was loud and clear, but this time a vocalist motoring on his acoustic guitar picks up on the subtle rhythm to steer worship and burst out singing, “Wave upon wave”. The four drummers’ percussive beats on skins and cymbals mirror and match a pounding of unseen galloping hooves – but Henni on drum kit at one side, and a close group of three playing djembes on the other side of the worship leader, were unable to hear one another!
Yet to the congregation, their rhythm was wonderfully synchronised by the Holy Spirit. ‘Twas an awesome time before and in the Presence of the Lord of Lords.
So, when our minister circulated the following prophetic word to older members I noted its above picture and reference to what I’d already heard. Also, what itinerant prophetic minister Nellie Balandowich brings below was not news to me because early retirement was really time for me to be ‘re-fired up’!!
Here’s the word she offers, which I heartily endorse:
A GREAT RESURGENCE IN THE GENERATION OF THOSE BORN BEFORE 1960s
When I woke up on the morning April 6, 2014, the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me, and I heard Him say the generation that was born before the 1960s is arising…many in that generation who have been asleep or lulled are now awakening to new dreams, visions, and invitations from the Spirit of God!
“This generation has been lulled into mediocrity, and I am breathing My ruach breath on them and bringing them back to life. When the world tells them they are to wind down, ha! I laugh, because I am sending a sound, a frequency, that is awakening them to dreams being born.
“I am awakening a knowledge and a persistence to forge forward and to think further than their natural mind has taken them. There is a knowing being released that with Me all things are possible! This generation is arising to understand and delight in the fear of the Lord and walk in the knowledge and counsel of My Spirit. There is a renewal coming to a generation that thought they were forgotten.
“I say rise up, oh sleeper. Rise up to a new day for you – a new fervency, a new direction. I will restore, and I will refresh, and I will anoint you to dream again; and to not only dream but to live out those dreams. I am the One who empowers you, and I will teach you the way to go and how to get there. It is not the time to give up. It is not the time to say it is over, for I tell you it is just beginning.
“Hear the sound of horse hooves. They are coming your way. There is a gathering of a generation that thought it was over, and I am calling you to RISE UP! I am unleashing a renewing of youth, and strength, and purpose, and intent for all who are willing to say, ‘YES.’
“Your greatest hour is ahead, and together we are going to partner to bring forth My Bride. All parts of the Body are required. The world has said ‘Retire, wind down’; others said, ‘You’ve lived your life,’ or, ‘You cannot offer anything,’ but I say ‘NO!’
“You are to awaken to Kingdom purposes and protocol. I am birthing something new in you, and I will not allow a generation to fall asleep, for you were born for such a time as this! For such a time as this you will come forth and you will awaken, and the glory of the latter house will be much greater than the glory of the former house!
“Can you hear the sound? The awakening of a supernatural generation has begun,” says the Spirit of God! “It is the sound of RESURGENCE, supernatural resurgence. It has been released! I am calling forth a generation to finish well!”
