“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’” Genesis 1:28 (NKJV)

There was a great move of God in the 1960’s called the Jesus Revolution. Jesus revealed Himself to the counter culture of the day. Significant numbers of salvations, of deliverance, and of miracles marked that season. But interestingly enough, though millions were brought into the kingdom, it did not impact our culture, our nation. We actually came out of those years worse than before as a nation. While the church evangelized the hippies, the demonically inspired counter, discipled our nation. Humanism and doctrines of demons were spewed into the schools. We had revival, but without transformation, reformation, the results had no lasting impact.

We are stepping into another season of revival, but this one is going to be different. Not only will there be a 1 billion soul harvest, there will be reformation and transformation through the discipling of nations (Matthew 28:18-20). This next move of God will release heaven on earth as we were commanded to pray (Matthew 6:9-10).

This doesn’t mean darkness will cease. That won’t happen until Satan is cast in the pit for 1000 years. And I’m not talking about “dominion-ism” where the Church rules and reigns with Christ on the earth. Though we have be given authority to take dominion of the earth, people still have a freewill to choose who and what to believe in! We’re talking an intense conflict between kingdoms, between light and darkness, between good and evil. We’re talking spiritual violence (Matthew 11:12) and great advancement of the Kingdom of God! We’re talk shockingly dark things being exposed, and great miracles causing the world that is under a demonic slumber to awaken!

There are prophetic words about 100,000 folks from LGBTQ movement coming to Christ. And this group will be instrumental in impacting the whole movement. They will become powerful evangelists! There is a sense that prodigals will be some of the first fruit as God begins calling them back, and releasing them into the world as leaders in this great harvest. Yes, there will be a 1 billion soul harvest, but understand this, there will still be darkness. There will still be people and nations that reject Christ and cling to evil.

Isaiah warned us of this day saying darkness, even gross thick darkness will cover the earth and grip the peoples, but God’s glory will shine through it (Isaiah 60:1-2). This darkness will be the backdrop of the greatest movement of God this world has ever seen.

Ask God to prepare you for what He is about to do (in fact He is already doing it). Pray for the LGBTQ in Athens, even for the so called “woke” ones, to have a revelation of who Jesus is and a grace to come to Him. Pray for the prodigals in Athens to be awakened and come to their senses and to come home! Ask Him to prepare your church to be a disciple making center, to welcome back the prodigals and embrace those from the LGBTQ movement. Ask Him to expose any and every place where you have allowed darkness, deception in your life. Invite Him now to increase His light and glory within you, so that you would shine brightly in our dark world.
