I saw the cripples get up and walk, and I was humbled. I saw the blind receive their sight, and I was amazed. I heard the mute speak, and the deaf hear (in fact an entire village school for the deaf had their ears opened by the mighty Holy Spirit) and I was stunned. I witnessed a myriad of HIV AIDS cases healed that were certified by several medical doctors and the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) based in Atlanta. They held PCR test results in hand (the ultimate gold standard) and tomes of government documentation. Drama of biblical proportions unfolded before my very eyes when a leper was cleansed, and I was completely undone. (Updated free DVD’s of the LORD’s miracles here.)
But where were the rest of the American pastors at this global revival of Joel 2:28? There were three million people in attendance at Kakamega (Kenya) and the pastors attending represented every continent. In fact, the church from the island of Malta dwarfed the U.S. church. Is it because the healings were free of charge; paid for by the blood of the mighty Lamb of God? Has the American church become drunk with pride (James 4:6, Proverbs 29:23) in its materialistic pursuit at the pulpit that they have grown numb to sin, and dumb in spirit?
The answer is simple: As powerful as the miracles were and as amazing as the healings were nothing was more obvious than the resplendent Holiness of the LORD and His Righteousness (Heb 12:14).
The message for the United States church is clear and urgent: Run now, prepare for the coming of the Messiah! Trade in the Versace’s and Armani’s for sackcloth and ashes. It is time to repent. It is time to present before the King of Kings for Jesus is certainly at the door, and time is evaporating. We have unimpeachable testimony that the words of the LORD’s prophets are now fulfilled in real time. In fact, the LORD has sent us ‘Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the LORD,’ (Malachi 4:5).
Now we know that there are no modern Christians in heaven for there is no modern God in heaven. It is time to walk in holiness and spend the currency of righteousness. Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever!
Prepare the way for the coming of the Messiah!
