Thank you to the Lord and Yinka Oyekan for this published by UK Prophetic Words:
This morning Father whispered in my ear,
“If believers want to stand before kings on earth they must learn to kneel before the Lamb of Heaven.
“My desire is that everyone should get a chance to kneel before Me. So, tell My sons and daughters to ‘be strong, deny the self and proclaim the good news’. They killed My son because of it and those who love Me share in His sufferings.”
My mind turned to the images of the preceding night where he showed me a fire he was sending into his church. A glorious fire pointing to divine majesty, and our absolute dependence on him alone for true light. An envisioning fire, fuelling the passions and hearts of those who have truly seen him, for how can you serve anything else once you have been illuminated by him? A holy fire, demanding repentant hearts. An insistent fire, demanding obedience to The Father; a hungry fire, feeding our devotion.
In Europe, I saw countless churches coming alive with fresh evangelistic zeal and Germany ablaze with a fresh fire. I saw Sweden, Switzerland, and some other countries of Europe filled with it, like a mighty wave, then following south, and back into Africa and the Middle East.
In the UK I saw that it will release a wave of new songs and hope. In the Southwest it will be a soothing fire bringing a wave of unity and healing into communities and a fresh sense of identity. In the East I saw thousands bending the knee to Christ. And I saw London, Edinburgh and Cardiff glowing with it.
Father’s love is fuelling a fresh wave of the Spirit. For the Lord will build his church and no pressure from the forces of darkness will prevail against it.
