The Word And The Spirit
I had a dream 07/26/2014 where I was suspended, actually tied to, between 2 buildings. The buildings, in my dream, we’re moving further and further apart. Being that I was tied to them meant that I would be literally torn limb from limb if they continued moving further and further apart. I was trying to get them to come together so that one, I wouldn’t be torn apart and two, the bonds that were pulling me so tightly would now be loosed and I would be free to move about.
The buildings in my dream represent the Word and the Spirit. There are 2 camps it seems as was represented by the 2 buildings in my dream. There are those that embrace the Word but reject any move of the Spirit, some going as far as calling any manifestation of the Spirit demonic. Then there are others who embrace the Spirit but have no real grounding in the Word. We seem to forget that the word says, “in Hosea 4:6 , My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. ..” . If we are to see a move of God the 2 buildings, both coincidentally built by human hands, need to be as one. I leave you with a prophetic word spoken by Smith Wigglesworth.
THE GREAT REVIVAL
“During the next few decades there will be two distinct moves of the Holy Spirit across the Church in Great Britain. The first move will affect every church that is open to receive it and will be characterised by a restoration of the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The second move of the Holy Spirit will result in people leaving historic churches and planting new churches.
In the duration of each of these moves, the people who are involved will say, ‘This is the great revival.’ But the Lord says, ‘No, neither is this the great revival, but both are steps towards it.’
When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidenced in the churches something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the Word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit. When the Word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest movement of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed, the world, has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and the Welsh revivals of former years. The outpouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to the mainland of Europe, and from there, will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth.”
— Smith Wigglesworth, 1947
I do not believe that this move will be confined to Great Britain, although it begins there.
