We believe that we are in the beginning stages of the third great awakening in America! In February of this year, world renowned evangelist Reinhard Bonnke declared at Gospel Fest in Florida that “All of America will be saved!” When Bonnke made this bold declaration in Africa over a decade ago, he proceeded to see more than 55 million Africans come to Jesus between the years of 2000-2009 alone.
We, at the Washington House of Prayer, agree with Bonnke that the harvest is ripe in America and the move of God is eminent (Matthew 9:37). God has been speaking to our community about the first great outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost in the Book of Acts, which led to “3,000 being added to their number in one day”. We believe this same thing is possible in D.C. following Pentecost of 2013!
In March of this year, one of our intercessors woke up in travail in the middle of the night at exactly 2:38 am. As we processed that encounter with the Holy Spirit we were lead to Acts 2:38, “Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’”
We are now contending for ACTS 2:38 to become reality!
It was also brought to our attention that it has been 238 years since Paul Revere sounded the alarm calling the revolutionary army into battle. As the prayer movement has a lit a flame in “the tower” before the Lord, God is commissioning a new breed of riders, like Paul Revere, to spread out across the nation sounding the alarm that we must reach the lost. We believe that it is time for a new army of revolutionaries to rise up carrying the message of true hope and true change with lasting results.
