The nations of the earth are being shaken like never before. This can only mean one thing: Revival is imminent.
If you are reading these words right now, that means you are an eyewitness to one of the most dramatic and historic seasons for the Church. While much of what is happening around the world may seem unpredictable, God has a bulletproof plan that is currently unfolding in astonishing ways.
“…Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine — these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.”1 Corinthians 2:9 TPT
In 2022 we have now entered the third year of extreme shaking that has come with the global pandemic. This is the second major shaking in modern history, along with World War II, that has impacted virtually every nation on earth.
We are facing not only the COVID crisis but the economic meltdown—with soaring gas prices, supply chain shortages, and even truckers going on strike because of the vaccine mandate. Mixed with today’s cancel culture and the radical Left agenda, it seems like we are being assaulted on all sides.
But let me give you the good news. The prophet Haggai, around 500 years before Christ, prophesied about the very things we are living through today. In Haggai 2:7, the Word of God tells of a global shaking as well as a global revival. The Lord says he will shake all nations and then he will fill his house with glory.
When God says, “I will shake all the nations,” it is not hyperbole. He means all of them! This incredible statement is a prophetic signpost for our day, as it comes before a twofold promise: The Lord will fill his house with glory (Haggai 2:7) and the latter glory will supersede the former (Haggai 2:9).
The Word of God also reveals that the greatest darkness precedes the greatest light of revival. Isaiah 60:1-3 TPT declares:
“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of his glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day.”Isaiah 60:1-3 TPT
In this historic season we now find ourselves in, even as darkness tries to overcome the nations of the earth, the Lord is calling us to arise and be radiant because his glory is rising upon his people.
I strongly sense that the year 2022 is a significant year for the Church in America and around the globe. Many prophetic voices have been saying we are in a time of Isaiah 22:22, where God wants to open doors that no man can shut and close doors that no man can open.
“I will place upon his shoulders the key to the treasures of David’s palace. He will open doors that no one can shut, and he will shut doors that no one can open.”Isaiah 22:22 TPT
As in the spirit, so I believe this year will be consequential in the natural. In light of the Dobbs v. Jackson case being weighed by the U.S. Supreme Court, we could potentially see the overturning of Roe v. Wade this June, even as the decision currently hangs in the balance.
In the meantime, we need to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the Church—especially as we witness the escalating Russia-Ukraine crisis and its impact not only on Eastern Europe but on the globe. In the United States, it is also a critical season leading up to the midterm elections in November. I feel this may be the most important election season that we face. If we see Roe v. Wade overturned, the issue of abortion will then go to the states’ jurisdiction, and it is crucial that we elect pro-life politicians who are running on the local and state level.
“The one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying now to the churches.”Revelation 3:22 TPT
“Lovers of God have been given eyes to see and ears to hear from God.”Proverbs 20:12 TPT
At this crossroads for our nations, I want to invite you to a significant gathering coming up soon: Global Summit 2022, April 20-23 in Pasadena, CA. I will be joined by keynote speakers including major prophets like Cindy Jacobs, political commentator Lance Wallnau, renowned evangelist Mario Murillo, worship leader Sean Feucht and many other speakers. The theme of the conference is “Turning Our Nation Back to God”—for such a time as this.
“And now you must repent and turn back to God so that your sins will be removed, and so that times of refreshing will stream from the Lord’s presence. And he will send you Jesus, the Messiah, the appointed one.”Acts 3:19-20 TPT
We are believing God for revival and reformation to take place among the nations of the earth, and our prayer is that this conference will be used as a catalyst to further God’s Kingdom in this historic hour. Join me as we turn our nations back to God in 2022!
