The Revival Mantle (part 3)
In Tuesday’s post, I shared the first of two connected dreams received by Gina Gholston. The first dream occurred in July, 2021, and ended with the phrase: “To Be Continued.” In a moment, I will share the second dream.
The setting in the first dream was Wales. Evan Roberts, one of the leaders of the Welsh revival, was handing our generation the mantle he and others had carried in that great outpouring. During the dream, it grew into a much larger mantle in order to produce broader results. In the end, those who received it were transported by Holy Spirit back to America. If you have not read the dream, I strongly recommend that you pause and look at Tuesday‘s post. It will encourage you and give context. Describing the second dream, Gina says:
“On May 21, 2022, I dreamed that Pastors Paul and Kim Owens (pastors in Arizona; they were also with Gina in the first dream), a couple of other people (whose identities I can’t recall), my assistant, Darlene, and I were at Fields of the Wood near Murphy, NC. This is the location where we ‘landed’ at the end of the Revival Mantle Dream I had on July 5, 2021.
“We were sitting near the gift shop, all facing outward, toward the parking area and the pond located there. We had come to this place on a prayer assignment, and were now sitting, reflecting on the day. We were also praying, ‘Lord, what do we do now?’ As we prayed this, a car pulled up in the parking lot and parked close to where we were sitting. A few young people exited the car and went scurrying off to the gift shop. The passenger door opened and an elderly lady got out of the car. We could see that she was very emaciated, skin and bones. She was very weak, frail and could barely walk on her own. I ran over to help her.
“She said, ‘Thank you, honey.’
“I replied to her, ‘Come and sit with us.’
“I led her up to where we were sitting. She was dressed in very nice clothes with a long-sleeved, jacket-type shirt, and I saw that she had on very thick wool socks with no shoes. This was unusual since it was very hot that day. I asked if she was cold.
“She said, almost in tears, ‘O, yes, I am really cold. I just can’t seem to get warm.’
“I responded, ‘Well, we have this mantle, and if you’ll sit down here, I’ll cover you up. It’s very heavy, so we can’t put much of it on you - there’s no way you could hold up under the entire weight of it. But we can wrap you up in the corner of it.’
“Kim and Darlene helped me take part of the mantle and wrap it around the lady. As soon as we did, she said, ‘Wow! What is this?’
“Then the three of us looked at one another as a revelation hit us, ‘It’s the mantle of REVIV-AL!’ [revive all]
“I said to the lady, ‘This is the mantle of revival, and it revives.’
“She said, ‘I feel it! I feel it!’
“We watched as, right before our eyes, strength and life came into this lady. Her body filled out and was completely restored. She began smiling and glowing with peace and joy. We sat with her, rejoicing over her miracle. After a while she left, and we all sat there looking at one another in amazement, wondering, ‘What just happened?’ We were shocked!
“Then the Lord spoke - AUDIBLY! We all heard His voice. ‘I gave you the mantle, now I’m going to show you what to do with it. It’s not just to be worn and talked about because of its beauty. There is purpose for this mantle, and there is purpose for My placing of it on you. You must learn how to use it for My purposes. This is My answer to your question, “What do we do now?” You must learn how to use the mantle.’
“Suddenly, people began coming to us, telling us of various problems, health issues, or other situations they were dealing with. We would listen, then sit them down at the table and wrap them in the mantle.
“One young couple was weeping due to severe marital problems. We wrapped them in the corner of the mantle and they were both healed, delivered of emotional issues, and their marriage was restored.
“Another man came on crutches. He had undergone knee surgery and something had gone wrong, permanently damaging his knee. We wrapped him in the mantle and, instantly, he was healed.
“Some who came were not believers. They had witnessed what was happening, approached us, and asked what was going on. We would tell them about Jesus and His power to heal, deliver, and save. Then we would wrap them in the mantle, and they would be gloriously saved and instantly baptized in the Holy Ghost. We could literally see a physical transformation as the joy of the Lord would overtake their entire countenance.
“Over and over people came. We only used the corner of the mantle to cover them because we knew the full weight of it would be too great for them. Yet, there was so much power in just the corner of it that everyone who came, supernaturally received what they had need of. They all rejoiced and gave glory to God.
“Throughout the dream, God kept speaking to us audibly, saying, ‘This is the mantle of REVIV-AL. It’s purpose is to revive, to make alive again, to bring change. It is not for looks or show, and it’s not for the exaltation of those who wear it. There’s a purpose in My putting the mantle on you, and now I’m going to teach you how to use it for My purpose.’
“We were all so happy. We kept rejoicing, looking at each other in complete amazement and excitement for all we were witnessing. And we knew the fruit of the mantle was only beginning. (End of dream.)
“When I woke from this dream, I was literally sobbing! It was so real - it felt as if I had literally been there. I was just wrecked by the presence of God as I realized this was the continuation of last July’s dream. God is going to teach us how to use the mantle to reveal His power and make Him known.”
What we see as delay is sometimes God preparing us for what is coming. It is a season of training, instruction, and preparation. He has been preparing His Ekklesia for this great revival. We will release His authority, yes, but also His love and mercy.
Prepare! Wrap yourself in His presence so He can wrap you in His mantle - the mantle of revival. This is coming!
Pray with me:
Father, thank You for Your great love and compassion. You sent Christ, our Messiah, because You loved the world so much (John 3:16). Jesus came to destroy the works of darkness (1 John 3:8), and we are called to enforce His victory, in His name (Mark 16:15-20; Matthew 16:18-19). We know You are mantling us now for another phase of this. As we draw near to You, You will draw near to us, and You are bringing a big mantle with You. Wrap us in it! Clothe us with Yourself!
And Lord, we continue to pray for peace and healing to those who have recently suffered such incredible loss, be it Uvalde, Buffalo, those in other nations such as Ukraine, Afghanistan, Syria, and elsewhere. Comfort them. But most of all send a sweeping revival to save their eternal spirits.
We thank You for Your promise that America shall be saved. We know this revival will be the catalyst for that to occur. We also know, however, that evil leaders must be removed, and lovers of righteousness and truth replace them. We ask for this to take place in government, education, media, and every strata of society. And we ask all of these things in the name of Yeshua, amen.
We decree that our God, who is love, is coming to love the hurting and judge evil.
One more thing:
Before ending today’s post, I’d like to also share another fruit of this great Welsh Revival. As a young man, the great leader and intercessor, Rees Howells, was greatly impacted by the outpouring. In 1924, Rees established The Bible College of Wales in Swansea. In its now-famous prayer room (The Blue Room), many believe that his and the students’ prayers actually helped to win World War II. However, after Howells’ death, the Bible College fell into disrepair and eventually closed.
A pastor whose life had been remarkedly touched by the teachings of Rees Howells, along with his congregation in Singapore (Pastor Tuck Yang and Cornerstone Community Church), raised the funds to rebuild and reopen The Bible College of Wales. Now, once again, they host students from around the world to study the Word and drink from the wells of revival and prayer (for a three-month term). Their purpose is “to train and equip those who have a call to ministry in the church, marketplace, or in cross-cultural missions.” I have visited and taught in this amazing school. The BCW recently graduated their 13th class, and are slated to begin another in the Fall of 2022. If interested, you can find out more about The Bible College of Wales here.
