Some of my first readers may recall my reports of a miraculous healing of a wheelchair-bound young lady at a conference with evangelist Nathan Morris at Revive Church in Hull, plus its leader Jarrod Cooper’s follow-up report on healings. A vision he had in that year of 2012, as well as in 1996, are included in this blog’s Library. With a kind appreciation for this blog, Jarrod now writes:
Daniel 2: 21 states that God “changes times and seasons” while Acts 17:26 says God “determines pre-appointed times”. Amos 3:7 says “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets”.
As I’ve poured over prophetic words from around the world in recent times I have indeed found a recurring theme that a new era, a new age, a new Church chapter is emerging.
* In November 2008 Chuck Pierce spoke of a vision: ‘I saw a new move of God coming in England…The Spirit of the Lord says to the people of England: “This is your season for your light to come forth at night. You will shine in the midst of the night”; and in 2012 he prophesied again, “I’ve been here many, many times and you can sense something beginning to change. You’re entering a new day, a new era – a new Kingdom era.”
In November 2012 Dr Sharon Stone prophesied in the wake of hurricane Sandy, “the Lord kept saying that this hurricane and these winds are ‘a punctuation’ – not just in the US but a punctuation in the world…These are re-arranging winds and they’re changing the course of nations.… Hidden winds of change have been developing on the inside of My people and they are now blowing change into the world.”
In January 2013, as we neared the 2017 celebration of 500 years of Reformation, the prophesies intensified. Cindy Jacobs stating, “…we are entering a new era. Things cannot be done in the same way they have in the past season. The new era – a ‘But now’ season…” Again Dr. Sharon Stone, proven prophetic figure based in Windsor, Great Britain stated “We are in a season unlike anything I’ve ever lived in before, one where His glory is more readily available to us than at any time I’ve ever seen. And we’re seeing more of His glory being poured out, we’re hearing of more encounters with the Presence of the Lord.”
In the United States Rev John Kilpatrick, most renowned for a move of revival in the 1990’s stated, “the Lord said, “Tell My people I have brought about a season change”, while Stephen Herzig, from Christ Of The Nations in September 2013 prophesied. “This is a time of ‘new beginnings. What ‘was’ is no more. What ‘will be’ needs new foundations”, signalling that a preparation time for a new era was underway.
Speaking over the little revivalist nation of Wales (my home country!) Chuck Pierce prophesied in September 2013, “I say to you I am bringing a new quickening of power across Wales. Get ready, for a quickening power that will cause the birth of heaven to come down into the atmosphere of this nation, is now being released…I say three generations will now arise in this land and see Me move in a new way. I say to you, I want to begin new and fresh…An angelic host have been waiting, and many have come, but now they stand positioned in the land, ready to say who will go with Me into this season ahead.”
The message of a new season seems to have been washing like waves on our shores, well known prophetic figure Clifford Hill more tentatively mentioning “The Lord has been speaking to me for some time about a ‘new season’ and a ‘new message’. I’ve been growing in excitement but I’ve not dared to say anything to anyone in case it’s just been my imagination…”
In 2014 Charles Shamp said under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, “There’s coming to this country signs and wonders that this country’s never seen before. We’re birthing something that has never been in this country…This nation has seen mighty moves of revival but the LATTER movement of the glory of God THAT IS COMING NOW over this nation is going to trump everything you’ve ever seen in the UK. It’s NOT going to look like the old thing – it’s SOMETHING COMPLETELY BRAND NEW and what it’s going to do is literally even to shake ground in this country…”.
Again in 2014 Heidi Baker spoke of a great change emerging out of the United Kingdom, “There’s going to be a movement of unity in the UK that’s going to shake the world,” says the Lord. I hear the prophetic word of the Lord – “it’s another wave of revival He’s promised – This move of God is different than you’ve ever seen before…because no one’s going to point to one mighty evangelist – There’s going to be a move of unity within the Body of Christ…another historical move of God… you are going to come together for the prize…“I will give you souls!”.
Finally, Veronika West, in April 2016 prophesied a “sudden supernatural shift happening in the realms of the Spirit in this hour. GET READY for there is an emerging army of mighty warriors coming forth from a firestorm of glory, WATCH!!! FOR THE MANIFESTATION OF GREATER SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES!”
DAYS OF WONDER
Over and over again the prophets are speaking of a changing season, a new era, a greater day and the dawning of a new age. In January 2013 the UK Prophetic Council released a word concluding that we are “moving into a historic season to be known as ‘Days of Wonder’ “.
This particular phrase is dear to my heart, as in 1996 God gave me a vision of revival, calling it the “Days of Wonder”. I had been flying from London on a flight that appeared to be stopping at every African village en-route to Johannesburg. Sleeping through the night I was wakened by a startling vision of the glory of God. I lay terrified for several minutes, then slipped back into sleep. On arrival in South Africa the visions continued for several nights. Whilst ministering in South Africa God began to move at a level I had seldom seen before. People were healed, saved, drug addicts overwhelmed by the power of God. There were sightings of angels, visions of the future, and whole congregations were taken up into wondrous meetings with God. Backsliders came back to Christ, the oppressed were delivered, the unsaved fell down, overcome by God’s presence and got up saved! It was amazing.
All these prophetic words, accompanied by inspiring teaching, historical context and a fresh sense of what God is doing in the earth is in my new book “500: Is a New Era of glory dawning on the earth?” For the book’s full details click here.
