The Anointing of AA Allen: A Prophetic Word for Today


One of the things I cherish most in my office is an old wooden folding chair. It's not just any old-fashioned wooden folding chair; rather, it is one of the actual chairs that sat under the great "Miracle Tent" of A.A. Allen. If only this chair could speak.

Perhaps it would tell of the glory of God that filled each meeting. Perhaps it would testify of the mighty signs and wonders wrought by the power of the Holy Ghost when, on a nightly basis, tens of thousands would pack themselves under the canvas of that old tent. It could tell of blind eyes that came open with regularity. How each night wheelchairs and hospital beds would be emptied as the sick were healed en masse. It could tell of the multiplied thousands that it witnessed come to Jesus Christ.

That chair sits in my office as an ancient "marker."

It reminds me that the very glory of God that filled those great gospel tents during that great "Voice of Healing" era pales in comparison to that which we are on the threshold of today.

Recently, as I was seeking the Lord, I heard Him remind me "that no true anointing ever leaves the earth, rather it must be picked up by a generation willing to walk in it."

Everything we have faced in the recent months of our nation has pointed to this.

Never before have we as a nation been more in need of revival.

Never before has wickedness seemingly pervaded society in the manner apparent today.

Never before has the body of Christ been more in need of true Pentecostal power.

We have traded prophets for life coaches, and the result has been disastrous.

Nevertheless, I am full of hope. Like the prophet Isaiah declared in Isaiah 60, that when deep darkness was upon the people it would be then that the glory of the Lord would be poured out. I believe prophetically we have stepped into that season. What the enemy meant for evil, God is going to use to set the stage for the greatest outpouring of His mighty Spirit since Acts 2.

There is a divine re-digging of the ancient well of the miracle-working power of God. There is a fresh anointing being released upon a remnant who are ready to embrace it, to those who are willing to answer the Nazirite call and be a conduit of the power of God in the earth.

What the Spirit of the Lord did during that great "Voice of Healing" outpouring is being released again in the earth.

Except this time, God has saved the best for last!
