We are discussing here I moved to a serious U.S. city in June 2000 to assume the position as Headmaster for an interdenominational Christian highschool. the varsity was new but had severe problems. before my arrival, an educator had been arrested for a significant crime. Upon my arrival, the incident had become front-page news within the city. to mention the smallest amount , i used to be shocked at the magnitude of the matter and therefore the work that needed to be done. I became angry with God and questioned His direction.
Around 2 am, I got up to take a seat on the couch and pout. In spite of my upset state, anger and disgust, the Presence of the Lord settled within the front room . God didn’t even concentrate to or address my complaint. Instead, His presence was so strong that I physically trembled. He spoke these words, “Old Wells, Fallen Mantles, and New Fountains.” He instructed me to urge my Bible. By that point , I too had put aside my complaint. His Presence was so great that I didn’t know if I could survive it.
I too had put aside my complaint
I opened my Bible to Isaiah 35: 3-7: “The eyes of the blind shall be opened, and therefore the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and therefore the tongue of the dumb shall sing, for within the WILDERNESS SHALL WATER escape and streams within the desert. and therefore, therefore, the PARCHED GROUND SHALL BECOME A POOL and the thirsty land SPRINGS OF WATER.”
Next followed Isaiah 41:17 – 18, “When the poor and needy seek water, and
there is none, and their tongues fail for thirst, I the Lord will hear
them, I the God of Israel won’t forsake them. i will be able to open rivers in
high places, and fountains within the midst of valleys: I will be able to make the
wilderness a pool of water, and therefore the land springs of water.”
Now it shall SPRING [BURST] FORTH . Shall ye not know it?” Next came Isaiah 43:19 – 20 which declared, “I will make rivers within the desert…I will give waters within the wilderness, and rivers within the desert to offer drink to my people…”Awakening
The Lord was moving so quickly through the scriptures that I could hardly continue . His presence was incredibly strong. I felt like i used to be floating. Leaving Isaiah, the Lord took me to Joel 2:23: “He will cause to return down for you the rain, the previous RAIN and therefore the LATTER RAIN within the FIRST MONTH.” Then Joel 2:28 was given which states: “It shall come to pass afterwards that i will be able to POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH. Your sons and daughters shall PROPHESY, YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS and your YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS.”
The Lord revealed the meaning of this vision
The Early Church experienced the fullness of God. that they had the fullness, the gifts and revelation of the Holy Ghost . They were filled with boldness, power and anointing. God turned the planet the wrong way up through them. The dead were raised, the blind received sight, the possessed were let loose , the sick healed and therefore the Gospel was preached to the poor. The anger of Hell was violently aroused. The more the devil persecuted and killed them, the more they multiplied and spread. So Satan changed his tactics. By 300 AD Roman Emperor Constantine made Christianity the official religion of the Empire. What Satan couldn’t do through persecution, he accomplished through promotion, position, power, prestige, acceptance and prosperity. They SOLD OUT! The Church backslid and shortly all humanity fell into the brutality of the Middle Ages Awakening.
The Coming Great Awakening
Luther restored ‘the just shall live by faith’. Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards and therefore the First Great Awakening restored repentance, inward holiness and “Christ in you.” The Second Great Awakening with Barton Stone at Cane Ridge within the West and Francis Asbury within the East brought restoration in society through evangelism, missions, and great social renewal like abolition, child labor laws, and suffrage movement. The Third Great Awakening of 1857 restored the facility of prayer. Azusa Street Outpouring of 1905 restored the infilling and gifts of the Holy Ghost. The Lord stated that He was getting to reopen all of the “old wells” of revival so as to revive TOTAL truth to His church awakening.
Fallen mantles of ministry and anointing that rested upon the good men and ladies of God of old would be picked up and placed on godly men and ladies today to end what was started way back. they’re the “Isaacs” which will revisit the old wells of revival and reopen them. The mantles of ministry didn’t die nor were they buried with Asbury, Wesley, Stone, Amanda Berry Smith et al. . they need only been “on hold” until a generation would change state that would relate to them and pick them up Awakening.
