I am convinced the Lord is trying to break through to His people as never before.
As Scripture predicts, the devil has come down with great wrath, knowing his time is short (see Revelation 12:12). And right now God’s people need a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit, a supernatural touch even greater than the one at Pentecost.
Think of it: Jesus’ followers at Pentecost didn’t have to fear nuclear weapons. They didn’t face gay marriages in mainstream society. They didn’t tremble as the entire world economy teetered on the brink of collapse. It is clear we need Holy Ghost power to face these last days — it’s that simple.
Indeed, the cry that’s called for today was heard in Isaiah’s day:
“O that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence . . . to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! . . . For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:1, 2–4).
Where did this cry come from? It was uttered by a prophet grieving over the lethargy of God’s people, a man who clearly knew what was needed: a supernatural visitation from the Lord. Isaiah was saying, “Lord, we can’t go on as we have, with the same dead religious routine. We need a touch from You such as we have never known.”
