Azusa Street Revival (William Seymour)

As the wind blows in the natural in the Great State of New Mexico let it be seen as a sudden prophetic parallel that the Windy City of Heaven is in our Midst! God let the WINDS OF CHANGE BLOW IN OUR STATE!!!! We are overwhelmed by the possibility that REVIVAL WILL SWEEP THIS GREAT STATE! Jesus, we pray it in, preach it in, and we prophesy it in! Father the let the Fire of the Holy Ghost begin falling on every Church that will allow the Holy Spirit to move freely!!!! Allow your faith to be stirred this morning as we continue to become GREAT STUDENTS OF REVIVAL!! There was a great outpouring called Azuza St. Revival On April 9, 1906 to 1915 there was a mighty outpouring of the Holy Ghost!! Let me give you some background history! At almost precisely 5:12 a.m., local time, on April 18, 1906, an earthquake foreshock rudely awakened San Francisco Bay Area residents and it was followed by a massive earthquake about 20 to 25 seconds later, with its epicentre near San Francisco. Violent shockwaves punctuated the strong shaking which lasted some 45 to 60 seconds. The earthquake was felt from southern Oregon to south of Los Angeles (Azusa St.) and inland as far as 70 kilometres into central Nevada. It was the most destructive earthquake in North American history. A devastating fire, fed by ruptured gas lines, completed what the earthquake, later estimated as 8.3 on the Richter scale, failed to destroy in its 90 deadly seconds. Some 700 people lay dead among the decimated 514 city blocks. At the time angry men and women, predictably, blamed God. Indeed, within hours a gospel tract, was printed and widely circulated in the area, calling the tragedy a judgment and a warning from the God some were cursing!In Romans 8:19-21 the apostle Paul declares that ‘The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. This earthquake hit 9 days after God begin to pour out his SPIRIT on AZUSA STREET! I dont have time to reveal all that God has shown me about Earthquakes in the last days! But the Lord showed me in 2010 that a major earthquake is going to shake America! What Intrigued me as I read history was that there was an earthquake in connection with a move of Gods Spirit! There is 33 instances in the Bible where God uses an earthquake to get mans attention! The lord spoke to my heart one morning is that the earth will begin to quake in America as a sudden sign that I the Lord am pouring out my Spirit across America!! The Next Great move of My Spirit in America will be marked by an Earthquake! This earthquake marked the beginning of Pentecost of the pentecostal church in America! William Seymour arrived in Los Angeles on February 22nd, 1906 and proceeded to hold meetings at a small store front church Santa Fe Street. He was invited to have bible study and prayer meetings in this house on Bonnie Brae st, Seymour called for 10 days of Fasting and prayer and on April 9 the Power of God begin to fall! God begin pouring out his spirit so intensely people started getting baptized in the Holy spirit one right after the other! The doors and windows were open and “they shouted three days and nights. It was Easter season. The people came from everywhere. By the next morning there was no way of getting near the house. As people came in they would fall under God’s power; and the whole city was stirred. They shouted until the foundation of the house gave way, but no one was hurt! A Suitible place was found on soon found and rented at 312, Azusa Street, and the mission was begun. The first secular news reports of the revival appeared, on April 18, 1906 – on the very day of the San Fransisco earthquake. The Los Angeles Daily Times sent a reporter to an evening service on April 17, and he filed reports that were highly critical of the meetings as well as of the people who attended them. The Power of God was so strong that creative miracles broke out At AZUSA STREET! Ears that did not exist grew back! Arms that did not exist that had been lost on the job by a big machine had been ripped off! And in two seconds God constructed a brand new arm and when hands grew back the fingers down to new fingernails begin to grow! When they prayed in the Spirit a literal fire would come out of the roof of the building and then their was a fire about 50 feet away from it that would come down and mingle with it! People would literally call the fire department because the building looked like it was burning! God poured out his spirit until they were having church 7 days a week around the clock! This Outpouring of the Holy Ghost birthed the pentecostal movement in America! Out of this came the church of God of cleveland, the Assemblies of God and other fellowships! In 1909 william Seymor and Charles Parham hundreds of miles apart said in about 100 years Gods visible shekinah Glory would return to the earth and it would be the greatest Revival the World has ever seen! But This revival would be everywhere! In 1939 Smith Wigglesworth who had 14-16 accounts of Raising the Dead prophesied to man named Lester Summeral about your Generation! After that, after the third wave,” he started sobbing. “I see the last day revival that’s going to usher in the precious fruit of the earth. It will be the greatest revival this world has ever seen! It’s going to be a wave of the gifts of the Spirit. The ministry gifts will be flowing on this planet earth. I see hospitals being emptied out, and they will bring the sick to churches where they allow the Holy Ghost to move.” We must contend for Revival! God is going to pour out his spirit in america until overthrows every plan and strategy of the Devil as He unites His Church! I BELIEVE A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE IS COMING TO AMERICA AS A SIGN OF GOD SHAKING THE EARTH!! Little did I know as the lord showed me this History confirms that in 1905 William Seymour prophesied a coming earthquake in America! INTERESTING!!! GOD IS PREPARING OUR NATION FOR REVIVAL!! I was driving Home from Florida in February and the Lord said to me son Go To Azusa I have something for you! I was puzzled by such odd request wondering what I would do when I got there but knowing I was supposed to Go this year! I began to research and the Call Azusa Now will be going on which is 15 hour prayer meeting on the 110 Anniversary of the Azusa St Revival on April 9 120,000 believers will be crying out for revival! I knew immediatly I was supposed to be there! CRY OUT FOR REVIVAL!! It is coming!!!!
