The last few days I keep seeing the words awaken and wake up. I seen a bumper sticker that read “the world is awakening”, and I have been doing research on a new book, and I turned to a scripture in Judges 5: 12 that read “wake up, Deborah, wake up, wake up, and sing a song! I then get a prophetic word in my email box that says it time to awaken.
I have heard over the years about “The Great Awakening” that is going to take place, and I have heard it said that it’s starting, and they conclude it’s for many souls to be saved for the kingdom, and obviously that is the mission and heartbeat of Christ. However, I feel pressed to say, don’t box in the great awakening the Lord is going to do by placing it into one category. Those talking about this awakening should know that this entails more than any of us could imagine.
I had watched a movie back in 1991 called “Awakenings” it stars Robin Williams and Robert De Niro. In a nut shell, the movie depicted mental patients suffering from “Encephalitis Lethargic” Also known as “sleepy sickness”. These patients were treated with a medication and were awakened after decades of catatonic state, awakened into newness, but after sometime the drugs failed and they went back into the “sleepy sickness”.
I felt deeply to write and say this awakening is going to awaken people from catatonic states in many ways and levels, and unlike the movie where the drug fails, and they fall back into the sleepy sickness, this great awakening will be of a spiritual flow.
The Lord will shine his light and awaken situations outside the church and inside the church to make visible, the grey areas that need to be dealt with to bring wholeness. These issues are marriage, finances, health, hidden sin and most of salvation. I do believe we will witness it at government levels too. When those have been awaken from the catatonic issue they will be set free.
That is why it says, “Wake up, O sleeper! Arise from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.” Ephesians 5:14
The Churches will get a face lift as it awakens from the sleepy state. The Ahab pulpits will crumble, as the saints awaken from years of strongholds that have kept believers tied to churches that are not equipping and building the saints.
It will be like a “New Frontier Movement”, it might be a small multitude or a large multitude, but their open visibility will frontier to bring a catalytic outcome.
And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11
Be open to the Lord; don’t box this awakening in, pray that many will come to Christ, and experience bondage’s broken, for they can live awakened.
