Bob Jones was a crusty, eccentric prophet. Well before he passed away on Valentine's Day 2014, Bob gave a prophetic word sharing three signs that would take place before the arrival of a Billion-Soul Harvest.
Back in 1983 in Kansas City, he prophesied:
- that in America a "morning-after pill" would be invented,
- that America would legalize same-sex marriage (which was unthinkable at the time), and
- that a watch would be invented that the laborers working in the rice paddies in China could wear and listen to worship music.
Right now we are in a prophetically unprecedented season, as the second and third signs in Bob's prophecy took place just last year—most notably with the advent of the Apple Watch.
In this historic season, it's perfectly clear to me that we are in a time of global harvest.
A SEASON OF HARVEST
You know the saying, 'Four months between planting and harvest.' But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest" (John 4:35, NLT).
Just look at Asia as an example and you'll find that the gospel is exploding all around the world.
According to a recent article in Christianity Today, there are an estimated 106 million believers in China today (that's more than in the United States!). In Indonesia—the largest Muslim nation in the world—40% are now born-again Christ followers.
I have also been hearing about revival breaking out in Iraq and how Iraqi Christians are immigrating to the U.S. to escape the intense persecution in their homeland. The Holy Spirit is moving powerfully in the Middle East!
And this is just the beginning.
Prayer, Revival and Harvest
What does a Billion-Soul Harvest look like? I believe it begins with prayer.
Just two months from now, on April 9 the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will become ground zero for a massive gathering of unified prayer, love and miracles: TheCall Azusa.
I want to encourage you to join in this "upper room" of 120,000 to help usher in a world-shaking revival and harvest, just as the waves of the Azusa Street Revival impacted millions of people starting exactly 110 years ago to the date.
Smith Wigglesworth prophesied that 110 years after the outpouring of Azusa Street there would come another great revival—greater than Azusa Street. That is why we are digging the wells of revival at Azusa Street. We are praying for a visitation of God unlike any other.
