We’ve read about the Joel 2:28 Revival in the Bible not really understanding how it would develop, where it would ignite, and what language it would express and manifest. Would it be English the global language of business, or some obscure language hidden from the masses? But now that we see millions of end time saints that continue to gather and Celebrate the Blood of the Lamb at the End Time Revival Meetings of the LORD to hear what the LORD is saying to the Church at this hour, we have an answer. After all, these are the people reaping the fruit of repentance and receiving the treasures, and miracles from the storehouse of Heaven, which is something the church in the USA needs to turn aside and to view…through the lens of the Bible. Before Joel 2:28 we find Joel 2:17!
Nakuru Revival, Prophet Owuor, January 2015
In Nakuru, Kenya, on January 1, 2015 I had the opportunity to witness the location, the launching pad of the global revival, and actually hear this language. As the LORD reached out and healed the wounds of His people where the cripples walked, the blind received sight, cancer and HIV/AIDS healed (counting over eighty medically documented cases from prior revival meetings, yes, do turn aside and look) a clear pattern developed. Time and space restrict all of the details, nevertheless, one flashing neon sign was hard to miss: a blind man from the Maasai that received his sight from the LORD stood among the throng to testify. For context, the Maasai are semi-nomadic east African people that live in temporary mud huts, and travel all day by foot often without shoes, and wear bright red clothing as a tribal uniform. They possess no written language either, although some have an understanding of Swahili and English the common languages in Kenya.
However, just as the LORD would have it, this man had little comprehension of English or Swahili, thus a Maasai interpreter was required (had to scramble to find one too) to translate before millions and the global TV audience. The glorious conversation grew in rapid ping pong fashion from the Maasai to his wife, to the interpreter and finally to the Mighty Prophet, Dr. David Owuor, (Mal 3:1, Mal 4:5) and the global TV audience, and then all the way back down the line again: first in smooth legato, then excited staccato, and then in total ebullient volleys in the most astonishing communication exchange I have ever witnessed. This was the ancient game of telephone on steroids, yet everything was clear. We could stop here and many would know the language of this revival.
1 Corinthians 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
It is important to step back for a moment and see the big picture with broad brush strokes. Here is a blind man, with no money, no transportation, no language skills, and no shoes that traveled a great distance with a family in tow (remember he is blind) and he fully expects to receive from the LORD when by all USA standards he has received nothing in life. Not only that, but he would likely stand on the outer edge of a massive assembly of millions and still be noticed by God? The answer is not only did he receive the blessings, miracles, and healings of the LORD he reaped in abundance. One need not be a theologian to understand that the language of the Mighty Holy Spirit directed this humble, sightless man.
John 4:23–24 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24″God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Just as Jesus the Messiah healed those that were most desperate and viewed by society and the fallen church as unenviable rejects, (see Mary Magdalen, Pool of Siloam, and the lepers to name just a few) so it is today. The Holy One of Israel calls out from the throne in Revelation 6:6 directly to the oil and wine church, and now we know the language and what truly defines this Mighty Joel 2:28 End Time Revival of the LORD. It is the same language and voice that speaks expressly, Prepare the way for the Coming of the Messiah!
