During a regular Sunday night service at his church in February 2015, Pastor James Levesque received an intense but very real vision from the Lord. It was one, Levesque says, that changed his life and ministry forever.
"In this service, worship was so intense and I saw the Lord standing in front of me, and He said that He was going to ignite the fires of awakening again," Levesque told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. "And He said this time, it's not going to go out. It's going to burn in this nation. The Lord kept saying to me, 'My fire is going to burn in the streets and it will not go out.'
"We experienced miracles that night. A guy that was supposed to get his legs amputated got healed. I mean, we saw very powerful moves of God. After the service, I was in my office praying and we heard an explosion. A transformer blew in our city, and that hadn't happened in many, many years. The word I got was transformation. There was fire burning in our city streets that night. That night, the Lord gave me 13 principles on how you and I can walk in our own personal revival as we're about to step into the greatest awakening the world has ever seen."
One of those principles, Levesque says, is especially pertinent today considering the cultural upheaval and the recent outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
"One of those principles I wrote about is about boldness and courage," Levesque says. "If there is ever a day that you and I need to have boldness and courage, it's today. Here's how I define that. Boldness is a place where you do not feel fear. You step out in the Word of the Lord and do exactly what the Bible said we are supposed to do. Ladies and gentlemen, we're going to lay hands on the sick and see them recover. We're going to speak in tongues, we're going to boldly declare the Word of the Lord. And we're going to believe all that we've been given, all power over sickness and disease."
