The Sound of Redemption
Holy Spirit is aligning the nations and the spiritual realm, preparing them for His coming outpouring. Last week I read a post from Dr. Scott Reese which spoke of this. Scott used an allegory in which the earth had a spine encircling it. The spine had misalignment and diseased places, causing pain and suffering. In his vision, God was healing and realigning the spine, much like a chiropractor would do for a person.
I also read a post from my brother, Tim Sheets, in which he said a fresh Pentecostal outpouring of Holy Spirit has begun, assisted by a multitude of angels. He also spoke of the rumbling sound this was releasing in the spiritual realm.
Elijah spoke of hearing with his spiritual ears in I Kings 18:41: “I hear the sound of an abundance of rain.” When he said this, there was not yet any natural sound from a storm or rain. Elijah was hearing prophetically. Prior to this, the prophet had heard from God that He was sending rain (verse 1). He now sensed and discerned spiritually that this was imminent. Likewise, prophets today are hearing a sound, the sound of spiritual rain. Just before receiving Tim’s word, another prophet and friend of ours, Gina Gholston, sent me a dream and word which was also about ‘hearing’ this sound of revival. Though Gina received the dream in January, she spoke about it on June 5, Pentecost Sunday. An amazing confirmation was received during the message. I believe that Scott’s, Tim’s and Gina’s words are all related. Here is her account of the dream and what occurred as she shared it:
“On January 11, 2022, I had a dream in which I was sitting next to a campfire with a minister known for his masterful teaching on the subject of sound. He is also a renowned revival historian. As we sat together next to the fire, he held a long stick and was using it to stir the embers around the edge of the fire. While doing so he said, ‘In days ahead there is coming a redemptive sound that that will provoke a redemptive movement.’
“As the dream continued, we conversed about a few other things, then he said again, ‘There is a redemptive sound coming that will provoke a redemptive movement. It’s NOT a LIGHT thing! It is weighty, and will come forcefully. Hell has tried to stop it, but they won’t! They can’t!’
“He then gave a demonstration. Standing, he picked up a fairly large rock, lifted it high above his head, and dropped it right into the middle of the fire. As you can imagine, embers and sparks flew everywhere. He then stated emphatically, ‘That is what this redemptive movement will be like once the sound is released. It will come hard and fast, and it WILL cause a response. There will be an instant breaking loose - a redemption. The Lord is going to redeem the church, and He is going to redeem the nation!’
“On Pentecost Sunday, I shared this dream in a message I was preaching. The central theme of my message was that God has come to reignite the church with Pentecostal fire, so that our lives and message will be presented with a ‘demonstration of the Spirit and power,’ and the world will see and know that He is God (see 1 Corinthians 2:4). Just as I was about to conclude the message, there was a sudden, unexplainable ‘power surge’ that went through the building, causing a very loud ‘BOOM.’ It felt as though it shook the entire church! Though it happened suddenly and was extremely loud, it didn’t startle most of us! Instead, several people in the congregation immediately began to weep. It felt as though the presence of the Lord had just sat down on us! We instantly knew God had demonstrated to us that He has ‘dropped the rock’ and is now releasing the sound that will provoke an unstoppable redemptive movement!
“According to Webster’s Dictionary, the word redeem means ‘to get or win back; to renew;’ renew means ‘to bring back to or put back into a former or original state.’ I believe we are now in a time when Jesus is reclaiming His Church. The Lord once said through a minister, ‘I made the church the way I wanted it. Now I want the church the way I made it.’ Make no mistake about it, the true church that Christ birthed is not intended to be a weak entity sitting in hiding, hoping to hold on until He returns. He formed us to be a glorious Church, filled with and operating in the power of His Spirit. We are called to be filled with His fire and clothed in His glory. The church must be marked and known by the demonstration of His awesome might! That was His intention from the very beginning. He is now bringing the church back into alignment with His original intentions. Out from that church will emerge carriers of the fire. He will work through them to initiate the awakening revival that brings our nation and the nations back into alignment with His original intent!
“This moment in history demands the revealing of the true church, and that revelation has begun. America has a strong revival heritage that has burned through many generations, and that fiery torch has now been passed to us. We must allow the fire to burn in us, no matter the cost. The Lord is reigniting His church with the fire of His glory. She will shine with undeniable signs, wonders, and miracles as Christ stretches forth His hand through us, making Himself known. The redemptive movement has started, and hell cannot stop it!”
When multiple prophets begin hearing similar messages we must pay heed. Numbers of them are hearing that a great shaking has begun on the earth; but they have also been hearing that this will be accompanied by a great, worldwide revival. Do not be alarmed by the shaking – it is spoken of in scripture and must occur (see Hebrews 12:25-29). The agendas of evil governments, systems and institutions must be dealt with; this is occurring. In our nation, not only is the ineptitude of anti-American, anti-God forces being exposed, but it is being done in a way that also reveals their hypocrisy and lunacy. Continue to pray for this exposure to occur, as well as the great spiritual awakening. It’s coming.
Pray with me:
Father, though it seems to some that America and the Church have fallen so low there is no hope of redemption, we know You still reign. Your eternal plan of the ages has not changed. You’ve not altered the purposes and intentions You breathed and prophesied into the church or our nation. You are now calling both back into alignment with Your original plans.
Though darkness has covered the earth and gross darkness has shrouded many people, You have released a redemptive sound that is stirring and awakening the body of Christ. Out of the ashes we are rising to shine with the unavoidable light of Your transforming glory. You have clothed us with Your righteousness and filled us with Your Spirit. We are now emerging with the wisdom to utilize the weapons of our warfare. These weapons are not carnal, but mighty through You, our God, to pull down every stronghold and break the powers of hell attempting to stop this redemptive movement. We will work with Holy Spirit as He guides us according to Your great wisdom. We will stand under the weight of Your glory, and those who sit in darkness will see it and be drawn to Your great light. They’ll be changed by the redeeming power of salvation through Your Son, Jesus! And in His name and authority, we pray, amen.
The Lord is reigniting His church with the fire of His glory, and we will shine with undeniable signs, wonders, and miracles as He stretches forth His hand through us to make Himself known. The redemptive movement has started, and hell cannot stop it!
