Revivals and Outpourings : Toronto , Pensecola , Lakeland , Dudley , what now? Firestorm for the UK , and the world!

September 19, 2008

1) Revivals and outpourings : what is to come? 2) See video of one recent miracle healing taking place in Dudley town centre.

1) There is a firestorm coming to the UK, and there is revival. Smith Wigglesworth prophecied in 1947 that when The Word and The Spirit operate together in the church there will be revival. This marriage between Word and Spirit is happening increasingly now. Jean Darnall prophecied in 1967 about fires burning in different parts of the UK. We have been seeing this already in 2008, but it is increasing, and I believe will continue to do so. Ultimately though, God will bring global revival. The prophecy attributed to Smith Wigglesworth concludes: “The outpouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to mainland Europe, and from there, will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth.”

I believe that The Lord has impressed upon me that all that He has poured out at Toronto, Pensecola and Lakeland are for now, and not only that but there is new wine! It is too easy to compartmentalise what God does, and leave other moves of The Spirit behind as being “irrelevant to today” but let me throw something out for due consideration. Hosea 6 verse 3 says “He will come to us like the rain, like the latter rain and the former rain to the earth.” While it is right to pray for latter rain, we shouldn’t neglect the former rain as well. Of course God emphasises different aspects of who He is and what He wants to do in each move of His Spirit, but why do we neglect important things with each fresh wave? Was there a point that the church reached full maturity in the revelation of The Father’s love? Was there a moment that the church didn’t need any more refining fire to bring holiness and purity? I believe that we constantly need to draw on all aspects of the outpouring of God’s Spirit so we deepen our relationship with The Lord, receive refining so we walk with high integrity, while taking out the prophetic healing anointing fire and glory for souls because as every minute passes, sadly many still die without Jesus Christ but it doesn’t have to be like that. We simply need more of Him, and less of us! We need hearts surrendered wholly to Him and His sovereign purposes.

Romans 8 verse 19 says “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.” God is maturing the church so that what the world will see will be a body of believers filled with His His love, His righteousness, His purity, and His miracle working presence and power. It is no longer just about the big names, the high profile ministers, but God is calling ALL Christians to live set aside lives to His glory, filled with His love for people, and operate in the prophetic, and signs wonders and miracles! Just imagine an army of believers accessing the revelatory realms of Heaven, hearing God’s voice clearly, having angelic visitations and third Heaven experiences, and ministering under an open Heaven. In uncertain economic times we need to contend too for the wealth transfer to the body of Christ too. (Proverbs 13 verse 22).

I believe that this fulness will usher in the culmination of this dispensation, the end time revival that will not only bring a harvest of souls into The Kingdom, but an unspotted intimate bride ready to take her place at the marriage supper of The Lamb. This really is an exciting time to be alive as a believer if we choose run with what He has given us to use for His glory! You may have seen the recent broadcasts of The Firestorm gathering on God TV, part of The Dudley outpouring at my church Revival Fires, lead by Trevor and Sharon Baker. As God’s glory has touched meetings with many miracles of healing such as eyesight, tinnitus, arthritis and serious conditions through the power of God, I love the fact that this move of The Spirit has an emphasis on The Father’s love, intimate worship, the lordship of Jesus Christ, the presence and power of The Holy Spirit, the refiner’s fire for holiness, the glory of God, and the transferable healing anointing to share the gospel with the lost, the fulness of God that we all need.

2) I’ve just edited the video of one of the miracle healings that took place recently on the streets here in Dudley caught live from start to finish! If you haven’t seen the initial version, this shows how God can break in to our world with His love, compassion, and awesome power, and use regular people like you and me to accomplish his purposes. He wants to build a secure foundation in our hearts though, so we are not just clanging cymbals operating powerfully in the gifts of The Spirit but buckling when the vicissitudes of life come. I believe we can look confidently toward the future and believe that God will pour His greater glory presence upon us. Also, the body of Christ will rise up and take her place dispelling darkness, loving people, and demonstrating The Spirit’s power for evangelism. We will see a worldwide harvest of souls as The Lord convicts non-believers to give their lives fully to Jesus Christ. As they discover the reality of who He is this will happen, and He’s looking to you and me to make His name and His glory known!

This will be more than a sovereign visitation in churches, but entire towns, cities, regions and even nations will be transformed by the glory of God. Does that seem too good to be true? No, but worship and intercessory prayer will continue to be essential keys. We need to remember that we “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6 : 12) In this move of The Spirit I believe that some people will get convicted of sin as they did in the Welsh revival when people flocked to churches without an invitation, but we ourselves must also take out the full gospel so that people see that Jesus Christ is real! We’ve been doing this recently in Dudley, giving many people an opportunity to encounter the living God, and His love for them. For example, we met one young woman who we had never met before who told us she was not a believer, and not from a Christian background. See this, and let’s get excited that nothing is impossible for God as you see this young woman healed of long term arthritis in Dudley town centre through the love and power of Jesus Christ:

Lakeland and Dudley outpouring : meetings continue as God’s glory touches lives

September 4, 2008

Many people are asking about whether God is still moving in Lakeland, Dudley, and elsewhere around the world. The answer is unequivocally yes. While people are still hungry it is apparent that the ark of His presence will continue to touch people physically and spiritually. Incidences of gold and precious jewels turning up in meetings as signs and wonders are occuring to accompany the healing miracles and salvations. What is clear at the moment is that there is an emphasis on refining fire and holiness as the cloud of God’s glory increases. There are biblical examples of this. I want to recommend an article I found on the internet posted on August 17th by Donna Diorio posted at Francis Frangipane’s website entitled “Where Do We Go From Here? To Greater Measures of the Glory” at http://www.frangipane.org The article is both sobering and inspiring.

Live webcasts of the Lakeland and Dudley meetings continue with details of speakers and upcoming conferences available too at the respective websites of Revival Fires and Ignited Churches. Go to http://www.ignitedchurch.com and http://www.revivalfires.org.uk for more details. It comes down to this, there are no limits to how much of God people can continue to experience and enjoy, but it is vital not to focus on the ministers with all their earthly and fleshly limitations, but on The Lord. It is Him alone that can truly transform us.

Dudley miracle outpouring hits Hindu family in Dudley town centre!

June 11, 2008

Yesterday, June 10th I went out onto the streets of Dudley with my wife Sasha and one of the students on the school of the supernatural here in Revival Fires Church Dudley our home church.We saw a small group of people we assumed to be a family the youngest of which was a girl who was barely able to walk, and using a crutch. I asked her and her mother if she would like prayer. They said that although they were of the Hindu faith they were open to us praying. As we prayed, she felt the heat and tingling of God’s power touch her ankle. The pain left her, and she was able to freely walk, even run! As a result of the demonstration of The Spirit’s power, she gave her life to Jesus! See this wonderful testimony:


To God be all the glory for another instant miracle healing on the streets of Dudley. Not only that but we prayed for one of their friends, a Hindu man and God took away his arthritic pain, and we are in faith that he is healed of arthritis. He accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. The girl’s sister also received physical healing as my wife prayed for her for a personal female condition. A group of muslim young men saw that these people had clearly been miraculously touched by God, and it opened their hearts to the reality of Jesus Christ. We had limited time, but I was able to have a meaningful conversation with one of them.
June 10th was Day 45 of the Dudley outpouring, and the fires of revival that touched Lakeland Florida in early April are here in Dudley, and the UK is surely on the brink of stepping into a glorious revival!

Miracles near Lakeland Florida with footage!

April 27, 2008

Today is the last day of Todd Bentley’s revival meetings in Auberndale, in the Lakeland area of Florida USA. Tomorrow he moves to the 9000 seater Lakeland Convention Center. I went to the Auberndale Florida Walmart today and ministered to people. I prayed for a man who had asthma and a heart condition. He told me he had had visions of him walking near a castle and a river, perhaps heavenly places! His condition made him weak though. When I prayed for him he told me he felt the power of God, a warmth touched his upper body, and said his breathing had improved.

I prayed for a man who had been in a motorcycle accident the day before with a twisted ankle, finding it very difficult to walk and in much pain. Jesus healed his pain, and he asked me to pray for his wife who had back pain. She thought the pain related to the sciatic nerve. I prayed for her, the power of God touched her, and the pain left her body! They shared their testimonies, and you can see them in the video footage below. It is wonderful to minister in an atmosphere of an open Heaven!

My time in Lakeland Florida for the revival!

April 27, 2008

I am currently in Florida near Lakeland for the glorious revival here with evangelist and revivalist Todd Bentley. I want to get deeper with God, and take back more fires of revival to Dudley, the UK, and beyond. It has been wonderful so far. The meetings have been in Auburndale Life Church because Ignited Church Lakeland could not seat the thousands that are showing up. The miracles are getting more glorious here, we’re talking about radical creative miracles like kidneys being created, metal dissolving, eardrums being created by God to heal deafness, and so much more.

As you know if you regularly read my blog I’ve documented miracles that have happened on the streets of Dudley since January 2008, but I’m believing for much greater when I get back. It is all about The Lord Jesus Christ, and his ministry here in these days.

Yesterday night the fire fell, there was glory in the house! Rory Alec, co-founder of The God Channel was there, as was Sid Roth of the wonderful It’s Supernatural programme. It was announced that the revival meetings will now be in the 9000 seater Lakeland Convention Center to accommodate the thousands who are coming from America and the world.

I will never be the same again after this time in Florida. I am falling more in love with Jesus, and The Father is imparting more of His love into my heart which I need for myself, and also to give away to those I minister to. Each night Todd is laying hands on everyone in the meetings, literally thousands, imparting various anointings, and tonight he will be individually praying for all people who are sick. These are exciting times we are in. I am believing that The Lord is sending revival to Dudley and the UK, and we will see more glorious supernatural manifestations of His love and miracle working power. All the glory to Him!
