Pastor and prophetic minister Ben Lim serves internationally but has a home base, Open Heavens World, overseeing three church plants in Southern California. In view of the current headlines, he says, he has a message for his fellow believers: "It's not all doom and gloom."
Instead, Lim tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network, "The Lord told me, Dr. Greene, that the most essential anointings are being released in this generation. And I feel like of course with the lockdowns and the fear of COVID, all of these things going on right now, the most essential anointings are thriving."
Lim says he believes that California, instead of sliding off into the ocean or worse, is seeing a true move of God. "We're seeing a spirit of awakening, and the churches are growing, churches are thriving—just a real hunger for God," he says.
Lim ties this to a sermon series called The Great Exodus that God has him sharing with his church. "We're talking about how God is raising up a Moses generation, after 40 years of failure, after running away and hiding for 40 years, now returning to the place of shame and guilt, and how God is going to raise up a generation to deliver people out of Egypt.
"And so I believe that's where we are today in America and the nations, where God wants to raise up ministers of deliverance to deliver people, set the captives free from bondage, from principalities," Lim says. "And I believe we're going to see a great exodus where people are exiting old lifestyles, patterns, habits. And we're going to see people ... get the plunder of Egypt as well, because God put the Israelites in Egypt for a purpose, which is to plunder seven times full."
Lim says the Exodus story offers hope that God "will raise up failure. And He will raise up people who made mistakes ... God will still raise them up to deliver a generation from addictions and from worldliness and carnality, and that it's not too late for you. So we must have hope in these times, because He'll do it."
