The coming great world revival from Jerusalem
70 years have now ended since Israel became a nation on 5/14/48. The 71st year officially began on May 9, 2019. God has told us in Ezekiel 36:24, 27 that He would first bring His Jewish people back to their land of Israel, and that then He would pour out His Spirit on them. Is this the time for the major move of God’s Holy Spirit in Israel? God repeats events in patterns.
After 70 years of exile in Babylonian, God said, “I am returning to Jerusalem with Mercy, My House shall be built in it…” Zechariah 1:16 Today God’s true House are His saved Body of believers in Yeshua. Is 2019 the year God has chosen to begin the coming Revival and Great Harvest of souls? ‘You will arise and have Mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time has come.’ Psalm 102:13
The Welsh Revival, with the outpouring of God’s Spirit, began only after the prayers and fasting of Evan Roberts and a few others.
The Azusa Street Revival also began only after the prayers and fasting of William Seymour and other people. In the same manner, the coming Great Revival in Jerusalem will need the prayers and fasting of many believers. Yeshua’s last words before ascending to Heaven in Acts 1:4, 5, 8 ‘… He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 1:5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. 1:8 But you shall receive Power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, & to the end of the earth.”
The current 300 Messianic Congregations and Churches in Israel are not prepared for the coming great move of God’s Holy Spirit and for the Revival and Great Harvest of souls that is coming soon to Jerusalem and to Israel. God is now giving His Israeli Messianic and Church Body a little more time to prepare.
Many home groups and small groups must be set up and operating.
Have our titles: apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, gifts of healings, gifts of helps, miracles, our work assignments as the One New Man, given to us by our Lord and Savior Yeshua, for the building up Messiah’s Body in love, blinded us and become snares for us to miss our greater callings and God’s best rewards: servanthood, discipleship, being an overcomer, a friend of God, a son of God, and being Messiah’s Bride. In the spirit of every Jewish and Gentile believer is the shed Jewish blood of Yeshua, and this Jewish blood is what made us One New Man! Hebrews 9:14 Yeshua is calling us to be just as He was, One who serves. Therefore we are to be His servants, and servants to each other. Have we missed Yeshua’s command, to just love one another as Messiah Yeshua has loved us? Are we preferring others above ourself? Romans 12:10 Are we really submitting ourself to each other? Ephesians 5:21-33 And do we truly love one another, or are we pretending this love with many, and just doing lip service?
Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good & how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 133:3 It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing, Life forevermore! a Psalm of David
God is calling us into a much higher standard, Oneness and love with each other, which our Great High Priest Yeshua prayed over us in John 17:21-23, just before He gave His life for ours, that the world may know His Father had sent Yeshua His Son to be Savior of the world. This Oneness is the only real behavior that God will work in each one of us through His Blood.
Why do we continue to pray the Aaronic Benediction, when we are not in the Aaronic priesthood, and when Yeshua has given us His Great High Priestly blessing, John 17’s Melchi Zedek prayer to pray over each other?
The future location for Great Revival and Great Harvest of souls.
The Great Revival by God’s Holy Spirit will soon begin in Jerusalem and spread throughout Israel and then out to the nations, bringing in the last Great World Revival and Great Harvest of souls. Ezekiel 39:29 It’s location was prophesied in Jeremiah 31:
Jeremiah 31:40 “And the whole Valley of the dead bodies and of the ashes, (the ben Hinnom Valley) and all the fields as far as the Brook Kidron, to the corner of the Horse Gate toward the east, shall be Holy to the LORD. It shall not be plucked up or thrown down anymore forever.” This is close to Jerusalem’s Jaffa Gate.
In June of 1999 I was given two visions of this Great Outpouring.
On Wednesday June 16th, 1999, while I was high in worship at Mount Zion Fellowship (then Ruth Heflin’s ministry) located in north Jerusalem in the Arab neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, and God suddenly showed me two quick visions in rapid succession, the second vision came only moments apart from the first. I saw a great outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit falling on many people who were gathered together in the ben Hinnom Valley and in the hills surrounding this Valley near the Old City of Jerusalem. The general location for this great Outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit is the area just below Jerusalem’s Mount Zion Hotel near Jaffa Gate!
In both visions I could see many people with their hands raised up in the air to receive the blessing of God’s Spirit falling on them from Heaven. Because these two visions came simultaneously, and so rapidly, I knew that this was not coming from my own mind, or from my own imagination, but that both of these visions were really coming from God. It was like I was looking at these two visions out through God’s eyes, at what He saw coming. I never thought about the Hinnom Valley before, in any way whatsoever.
The first vision was shown to me from a position of about 40 feet in the air above Mount Zion hotel, and just to its left or north of the hotel. In the second vision, given to me only moments after the first vision, I was shown this same scene, and again from about the same height in the air, but now from a very different location. It was shown to me from about 200 yards to the south east, also looking out over the ben Hinnom Valley.
When will this Great Revival come? I believe it may come this year, after the coming Gog Magog War. Amazingly, never before in world history have all the nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39 are now aligned together, perhaps just waiting for War to happen against Israel. This alignment has never happened before in world history. These Ezekiel 38-39 enemy nations desperately need the spoils Israel now has, especially the vast oil and vast gas reserves which have only in recent years been discovered in Israel [Watch JD Farag, Middle East Prophesy Update, 1/6/ 2019]
God alone has allowed this alignment, according to His Word.
What might catalyst this Gog Magog Ezekiel 38 War to begin? The Iranian Government is extremely angry with Israel. For many Sunni Arab nations, especially Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Oman and other Arab nations have been negotiating with Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, regarding both forming a Palestinian State on Israeli soil & also joining with them against Iran. Iran has been shamed and disgraced before many of their Arab neighbors. And Iran has vowed repeated to destroy Israel and the United States.
God alone is the One who decides when this War will begin!
In Jeremiah 49:34-38, the LORD says that He will break the bow of Elam (Iran), and also send the sword against Elam.
Prime Minister Netanyahu had sent jets to do this in 2014, and was stopped. Will he soon attempt this again, and succeed?
[Arutz Sheva 7 Israel National News, January 3, 2015, by Mark Langfan … ‘Obama Threatened to Shoot Down I.A.F. Iran Strike’ The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an had cited Kawaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2014, by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. Following Obama’s threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.]
2 Thessalonians 2:2: not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled … as though the Day of Christ had come. 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition … 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 2:8 And then the lawless one (anti Christ) will be revealed …
Many associate this Scripture with pre bridal tribulation rapture.
Here’s another explanation. What if the Restrainer, the Holy Spirit was specifically working thru President Donald Trump, using him as a restrainer in the Middle East for Israel and Iran, and a restrainer in the United States. Did Trump’s declaration on May 31, 2019 for U. S. ‘gay rights’ cause him to loose his restraining position?
In the Gog Magog War, the United States is never mentioned.
If a military War, such as the Ezekiel 38, 39 Gog Magog War happens suddenly, Scriptures also show that no other nation will be there to help Israel. God alone will bring Israel to Himself by sovereignly winning this War and saving His Israeli Jewish people, and also the Israeli Arabs. This will show the Israeli Jews that their God has always been there for them, and that He has never left them. So are things about to change drastically, and very soon, with a major War here in Israel, and trouble in the United States?
I believe so, but only time will tell. Perhaps we will know the answer soon, and before the next Israeli election of Sept 17, 2019.
Remember, P. M. Netanyahu is still in full Governmental power.
If the Ezekiel 38–39 Gog Magog War comes suddenly to Israel, then the immediate new focus at the end of this War will shift from Islam to the Orthodox religious Jews, who will then quickly have come into great political power, and will be putting up their house on Mount Zion hill. For God will have sovereignly destroyed from heaven both Russia’s and also all of the Islamic armies. The whole world, especially the Muslims, will witness Allah being defeated by the God of Israel. Many Arab Christian Congregatons in Israel who are now mainly into replacement theology, will have seen the God of Israel save His Israeli Jewish people and also save them, and their attitudes towards Israel will drastically change. Also the Muslim agendas will no longer carry the strong political power in Israel. Multitudes of Muslims will quickly leave Allah and Islam and come to Jesus, the God of the Christians. The Muslim harvest of souls in Israel coming to Jesus will be tremendous overnight.
If Israel first takes out the Iran’s nuclear facilities, then because of many war covenant pacts between Russia and Iran, any attack on Iran would cause this war, and be the hooks in the jaws of Gog (Ezekiel 38:4) which God would use as the catalyst to bring about this Bible prophesied Ezekiel 38-39 War, especially in God’s perfect will and also in God’s perfect timing.
Why is Iran, the first nation mentioned coming with Gog in this Gog Magog War, but coming just as foot soldiers? Ezekiel 38:5
If Iran still had nuclear power they would have annihilated Israel. Is this because Israel may have launched the pre-emptive strikes, and had suddenly taken out all of Iran’s nuclear power facilities?
Ezekiel 38:2 “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 38:3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 38:4 I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords. 38:5 Persia (first nation mentioned), Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet;” ’ ”
Are nuclear weapons used in this War? Perhaps Isaiah 17:1, Damascus being a ruinous heap could be a nuclear explosion?
How do we know that the War will not be the Psalm 83 War? Because some of the Arab nations mentioned in Psalm 83, and especially Saudi Arabia, are now in relations with Israel, and encouraging Israel to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities.
But other nations listed in Psalm 83 may join Russia and Iran in this Ezekiel 38-39 War. For Ezekiel 38:6 says that many people will also be coming with those Ezekiel 38 nations mentioned.
Isaiah 17:4 says after this War Israel will grow lean. Isaiah 17:7 says in that Day a man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel. Also Ezekiel 39:9 tells us that after this Ezekiel 38 – 39 War there will be seven years of burning weapons, possibly for fuel. Could that begin the time of Daniel’s 70th Week, the last 7 years before Lord Yeshua returns to earth and sets up His Millennial Kingdom?
When the God of Israel sovereignly wins this coming War, then unsaved secular Israeli Jews, in gratitude to God for saving their lives, will do something, I believe, which they have never done before, they will give their support to the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews, who will very quickly gain great political power in Israel. With this newly gained political power the Israeli religious Jews will then strongly persecute those Jews in the Messianic Congregations and Christian Chuches in Israel whom they think believe in other gods, and specifically in our Lord Yeshua.
The real sad fact is that it is they, the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews who have left the Word of God of the Tanakh, and have fully followed their non biblical Oral Law. Thus they cannot see, or perhaps even refuse to see Yeshua as their Messiah and Savior, found in over 200 places in the Hebrew Holy Scriptures.
It clearly says that at the end of this Ezekiel 38-39 War, in Ezekiel 39:25-28 and 39:29, that two major events will then happen. First the Jewish people will return to Israel. For the great world Aliyah will be taking place. Jews will suddenly be fleeing from both the terrible persecutions that will be coming against them, especially in America, but also from God’s Judgments which will have begun in America. They will flee without any identity papers; for they had not prepared to suddenly leave the United States and come to Israel. For the hunters will have been released against the over 6 million Jewish people. (Jeremiah 16:16)
With persecutions coming to Israel from Israeli Orthodox Jews, who know where all the 300 or more Messianic Congregations and Churches are located in the land, this will change the structure of the Messianic Congregations and Church Body in Israel, creating overnight many more home groups and small groups.
I believe we may soon see the following scenario, which will cause the great Outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit of Love, bringing God’s Greatest World Revival, with the salvation of multitudes of souls, with great signs, wonders, and miracles. This mighty move of God’s Love will begin from Jerusalem over the ben Hinnom Valley and perhaps also in other places in Israel, such as in the Galilee. This move may last a few years, going out world wide.
Yeshua commanded us to love one another as He has loved us. (John 13:44) Will God use the Israeli Jewish Orthodox religious persecutions to help force His Messianic Body in the land into this divine Oneness with each other He prophesied in John 17:21-23, by the Power of His Blood with the Holy Spirit within our spirit?
The soon to be appointed Sanhedrin’s Aaronic priesthood will then be functioning in their Temple and be offering animal sacrifices on Mt Moriah (Mount Zion) hill. However they do not know who really are the sons of Zadok, the only Aaronic priests that God said He would allow to offer animal sacrifices in His Temple. See Ezekiel 43:18, 19 and Ezekiel 44:15, 16
This Zadokite blood was part of Yeshua’s own Blood Sacrifice! All this being said … remember that harvest time is always Now! “For now is the Day of Salvation!”
Yes, the Great Jerusalem and Israeli Harvest is coming soon, but we should also remember the Words of Yeshua …
John 4:35 “Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!’ ”
“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord (Yeshua) shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the remnant whom the LORD calls.” Joel 2:32 (and Romans 10:13)
