Fire!


This past weekend I was in California with our friends, Jim and Andrea Lafferty, and intercessors from around the state. God hasn’t given up on California. I was there in part to fulfill some of what Holy Spirit has shown me in recent dreams, one of which I’ll share in a moment.


After a powerful service in Costa Mesa, I went to Azusa Street Sunday morning to immerse myself in what Holy Spirit poured out there in 1906, which launched a new era of Kingdom activity on earth. I honored what He did and those through whom He did it, asked Him to immerse me in the abiding power and glory, and soaked in the anointing of that amazing spiritual well. It was special, and it was an effort to release “the synergy of the ages.”


Here is a portion of the dream I was fulfilling, given to Gina Gholston in March 2021:


“In a dream, I first saw a runner positioned in starting blocks, and then he began to run. His “starting line” was on Interstate 40 at the North Carolina and Tennessee border.


“The runner was moving at a supernatural pace. He was running across America going west on Interstate 40. He was running so fast that his feet were on fire, and he was leaving a trail of fire behind him—and the fire never went out.


“He ran to the end of I-40. Once he reached California, he made a left turn and moved down into the city of Los Angeles. There, at a specific location, he turned around. It was then that I could see the runner was Dutch Sheets. He had the number 8 pinned on his chest.” [Dutch’s comment: 8 is the number representing new beginnings in scripture.]


“The ‘specific’ location Dutch had reached was the site of the Azusa Street Revival. At this place, there was a ‘geyser’ of both fire and water shooting from the ground up into the air. (This reminded me of the Red River Meeting House Dream.)


“Dutch literally stepped into the geyser, became saturated with the water, and was also carrying the fire all over him when he emerged.


“When he came out of the geyser, Dutch bent over slightly, cupped his hands on either side of his mouth, and with all of his strength shouted one word very long and loudly: ‘FIRE!’ He was declaring this over the nation.


“Instantly, the sound Dutch released was amplified and was rolling out in wave after wave of power that traveled all across the U.S. - all fifty states. (I didn’t see this in all of the states, but I knew it was happening!)


“Dutch then made his way back to Interstate 40 and began to run back toward the east. I could see the fire was still burning where he had previously run on the westbound side of I-40. His feet were still burning, and he was again leaving a trail of fire behind him. He was now also leaving a trail of the water he had become saturated with at the Azusa Street location…”


I will share the remainder of the dream when I fulfill it. And I WILL do so!


The fires of revival have already begun to burn in America. Though small - they are just beginning - they are nonetheless beginning. In another recent dream, Holy Spirit said the revival would begin with prayer, then ignite leaders, spread to the nations, and become an unprecedented outpouring of Holy Spirit that included conversions, miracles, deliverances, and social transformation. All the earth will burn with this cleansing, reviving fire. Holy Spirit has clearly shown this is a synergistic convergence of past revivals now being released into the earth: Wales, the Hebrides, First Great Awakening, Haystack, Tennent, Red River, Fulton Street, Cane Ridge, Second Great Awakening, Azusa Street, and the Charismatic Movement. They are all being bundled into one great outpouring.


FIRE is coming!


“Think differently!” John the Baptist said in Matthew 3:3 (literal translation). “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” He said this because Jesus was walking on earth, here to redeem the planet from sin, the fall, and its resulting curses. Though we’re in a different phase of the plan, it’s the same redemptive process. Christ intends to release great redemption. We must think differently. Think revival. Think miracles. Think fire.


Yes, demonic leaders and governments are trying to stop this, powers of darkness are frantically trying to resist it. But Christ WILL win. Calvary guarantees victory and will not be reversed. Another manifestation of its victory is in process.


Get ready for fire! Go on the offense, prepare for harvest and breakthrough. Don’t be distracted by anything satan does or says. Don’t be intimidated by ungodly leaders - Psalm 2 is their decreed destiny. Let’s decree it together now.


Why are the nations restless and the peoples plotting in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let’s tear their shackles apart and throw their ropes away from us!” He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury, saying, “But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.” “I will announce the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, today I have fathered You. Ask it of Me, and I will certainly give the nations as Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, you shall shatter them like earthenware.’” Now then, you kings, use insight; Let yourselves be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, that He not be angry and you perish on the way, for His wrath may be kindled quickly. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him! (Psalm 2 NASB)


Pray with me:


Father, thank You for Christ’s victory. Thank You for Holy Spirit who is now working to manifest it in the earth. You are our victorious God! You are able to do what You said! You are never late, never outmaneuvered, and never overpowered.


We now partner with You. We say what You say. As Your Ekklesia we use the keys of authority You gave us and enforce Your victory. We declare now that revival is beginning. The harvest You have spoken of is in process. You are passionate about this and You will not be stopped.


You told us to ask for the rain of harvest when it is time for it (Zechariah 10:1). We are asking. Do it! Pour it out! Bare Your mighty arm and release Your great power. And we will partner with You, Almighty Savior.


Our decree:


We decree that the end has already been declared: Jesus wins!
