Ever Wondered How Andrew Wommack Ended Up in England?

0

This is how, in Andrew’s own words:

(Yes, this is another blog post in light of Dave Duell’s imminent visit to Dagenham!)

In September of 1989, I was holding a tent meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was the night that hurricane Hugo hit. The tent was flapping in the breeze, and we needed to drop and tie it off. But just before the service ended, Pastor Dean Mellon gave me a prophecy that changed my life and ministry.

 

He said, “you have a nation of the world on your heart, and you know exactly which nation I’m speaking of”. In less than a month, you will meet a man who will be a porter, a door opener to the whole nation.

I knew exactly which nation the Lord was speaking of, and I knew in my heart that the Lord was about to bring my dreams and vision concerning the U.K. and Europe to pass. I’ve had the U.K. on my heart ever since I took a trip to Europe in 1968. While in London, I spent hours walking the streets, praying for the people and believing God that someday I would get the opportunity to minister to them.

 

However, it’s not wise to just take a prophecy and run with it. If it was really the Lord speaking to me through this man, then it would come to pass without my help. Two weeks later at our U.S. Ministers’ Conference in Buena Vista, Colorado, I noticed that Will Graham from Rugeley, England was listed as an attendee. I figured Will was the man the Lord had spoken about, but I didn’t say a thing to anyone.

 

In the very first session, my good friend, Dave Duell, was ministering and calling people forward for prayer. He called Will to the front and said. “Will, God has made you a porter, a door opener to all of the U.K.” BINGO! That was it. This had to be the man the Lord had spoken to me about in Charlotte.

 

I told Will about that prophecy I received in Charlotte and asked him what he thought. He said his church had received a special offering to send him to the conference to get Dave and me and bring us to England. Praise the Lord! A few months later we opened our first international office in Coventry, England, and its been going strong ever since.

 

We have distributed hundreds of thousands of tapes and CDs through our European office and have thousands of people on our mailing list. We minister in many churches and hold two conventions in the U.K. each year. The Gospel Truth television program is broadcast daily in the U.K. on the God Channel International, which also reaches all of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The open doors to the U.K. and Europe were a supernatural opportunity that came directly from the Lord. We are committed to walking through every door the Lord opens for us and minster the nearly too-good-to-be-true news of God’s love to hungry people throughout Europe.

Prophecy by Kenneth Copeland (2008)

“Pay Attention to Me…My system is stronger than ever.”

Don’t pay attention to or make any plans based on what the media says

or what the politicians say. Stand on My Word in John 16. Pay attention to Me.

I [the Holy Spirit] will obey verses 13-15. I will show you things to come. I will

lead you through troubled times. I already have THE plan for you, and it’s very

good. Follow it. It will not only get you through, it will place you in a very high

place—a rich place—a strong place of victory.

You will have to discipline yourself and be diligent to listen to Me. All the

other voices will have a plan, a word, an idea for your future and security.

Don’t listen to Babylon’s system. It has fallen apart. My system is stronger than

ever. My kingdom is flourishing, and THE BLESSING is the place to be.

Keep your eyes on My Word. Listen to it. It will guide you and I will

perform it. Love Me. Love My people as I have loved you. Walk in it. Love never

fails, and neither does My plan.

Be very cautious to stay completely clean from covetousness. First

Timothy 6:10 must live in the forefront of your thinking. If you will do these

things and continue therein, you will come into your wealthy place. A place

lifted up. A place in Me already planned and prepared for you now. Here. Not

heaven—not yet. But it will seem like heaven right in the midst of all the

trouble, and you’ll be able to reach out to untold numbers of suffering people

with the Good News of the gospel.

I’m coming very soon. Sooner than you think. Keep your eyes on Me and

you’ll get the job done.

The Lord Has an Army: The Church Will Not Grow Weaker and Weaker… (Kenneth Hagin Prophecy)

4

The following prophecy was given by Kenneth E. Hagin on February 17, 1975:

 

And knew ye this, that the Lord has an army. Yea, He is preparing His own. No! The

church will not grow weaker and weaker and weaker and lie down and expire.

But she shall grow stronger and stronger and stronger for a fresh visitation of heaven is at hand. Yea, a new revelation of truth shall burst forth in all of its glory unto those who are called by His Name.

And they shall realize that in their grasp, in their hand all the while, was that mighty Name that is above every name. And they, with that Name upon their lips and with faith in their hearts, will speak forth unto the enemy and say, “Thus far shall ye go and no further.” And he shall desist in his maneuvers, and stop in his operations.

And the hand of the enemy shall be stayed. And the harvest that is to be reaped shall be reaped. For the harvest is plenteous, and the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest.

And so men, yea, if you please. Some would call them a “NEW BREED,” shall rise up and go forth. They shall not be afraid of the devil. They shall have no fear of men but with boldness shall they speak and shall challenge the very strongholds of the devil.

And there shall be a great shaking. But those who are settled in upon the Rock of Ages, shall stand and shout above the storm. And see above the darkness the might of God breaking on the horizon of time and they shall be reflectors of that Light that shall shine forth into the darkness.

And the blinded eyes of Satan’s kin shall be opened by men. Men inspired by God,

equipped by the Spirit, called by the Lord. Set in the Body of Christ to shine, to testify, to preach, to minister.

And so like a giant that Body shall rise, shall shake off those things which would hinder and break asunder the bonds of tradition and religion that has them bound.

And go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy. And the Blind to see both spiritually and physically. And there shall sound throughout the land the cry and the hue of “Hosanna to the Lord! Hallelujah! Great is His Name and greatly to be praised.”

And the last soul shall have been won. And the last spirit shall have been saved. And that Body shall have been completed. And then the cry shall come forth, “Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet Him.”

And in the ages to come, eons upon eons, that Body of believers shall show forth His glory and majesty forever and forever.

Three Waves – The Second Wave, a Wave of Financial Integrity

0

As the people cast out demons, healed the sick and had the most phenomenally accurate words of knowledge and words of wisdom, two things happened

Firstly, there was a backlash of persecution from cessationist Christians.  Not from the world, not really – much more from Christians who denied the Scriptures and the power of God.  This persecution took the form of exclusion from meetings, people were forced to stand down from leadership positions.  Some pastors were removed from their churches, other pastors virtually expelled their entire churches for speaking in tongues and laying hands on the sick and seeing them healed.  This caused a few people to back off and stop their new life of faith and miracles and joy.  However, far more people were galvanised by this and it caused them to dig into the Word to understand the Biblical basis for seeing miracles and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  It caused them to spend much more time with the Holy Spirit as their comforter and friend, and the wave of miracles grew more intense.
In the places where the persecution was strongest, often involving creative miracles of limbs re-growing and organs being restored.

The second thing that happened is that some people who had been involved in the most religious, non-charismatic churches realized that the grace and power of the Holy Spirit was free and completely by the grace of the Lord Jesus.  At the same time, many of the people moving in the gifts were very young Christians, some only being Christians for a few weeks or even days.

Some of these people started – or continued – in some of the vilest sins.  Some of these started to be exposed and revealed.  It threatened to derail the revival spreading through London and at this stage had started to affect churches in the home counties and in some areas in north England, Wales, France and eastern Europe.

Just at this time, several Christian ministers started to preach on purity and integrity in a powerful way.  Thousands flocked to hear sermons on holiness and purity throughout London.  People started to learn how to think on what is right, how to form pure and wise relationships and how to be honest in all their dealings.  It was a beautiful move and it dovetailed into the healing wave that had just past.  People started to learn how to live their life on the Word, not just on their gifting or anointing.  A small group went into an excess and said they could live how they like and started swapping partners, but this group stopped almost as soon as it started.

I have referred to this wave as a wave of financial integrity because that is how I saw it.  All the things I described above happened in my vision, but the crest of the wave was this: churches started to deal with money in an open and honest way.  I saw Christian leaders weeping before their churches because they had operated the church finances as an extension of their own bank accounts.  I saw elders apologize for manipulating people into giving to their causes.  Some people were repenting of making up causes to raise offerings and this was revealed.

Now, I know for a fact that there is excesses like this inside the charismatic church, but what surprised me when I saw this happen was that it was as much the traditional churches that had leaders repenting and making restitution as the charismatic churches.  Several pastors had raised money for an orphanage that did not even exist, and they were getting right with God and returning double the money to everyone who had given.

It was wonderful to watch.  And as it happened, as people – especially leaders – were honest, were owning up – there was a new level of trust across the body of Christ.  A Pentecostal minister would admit his folly, and instead of shooting him down, the local Anglican church would love him and reach out to him and restore him.  The Baptists were praying for the Assemblies of God, and the URC were praying for the Elim, and this opened up a number of joint meetings which led to many people being saved, healed and delivered.

The irony was that when this was dealt with, people actually became more generous with their money.  People who had never given more than a token amount to the church were giving 30-40% of their income into offerings for their churches.  Money was being distributed to the poor in London like never before.  A number of churches were getting together in different localities and buying buildings to use as shelters for the homeless and as soup kitchens, and places where people could be cared for and supported.  In many areas, one church was organising the whole project but would be amazed when other churches in the area would just send huge offerings with no strings attached.

As this wave started to subside – and I don’t mean that the integrity had ended, any more than the healings and miracles had ceased at this stage, but rather that this as a focus was ending – there were so many Christians who were fellowshipping with people they never thought they would fellowship with.
This is when the third wave I saw hit.

Three Waves – The First Wave, a Wave of the Gifts and Power of the Holy Spirit

1

Two weeks ago, while I was praying for the future of Tree of Life Church, I saw three waves of the glory of the Lord flow across London.  It was not an open vision but it was as clear as any vision I have ever seen from the Lord.  This vision was not exclusively for Tree of Life Church at all, but for all Christians across London.

The first wave was a wave of the gifts and power ministries of the Holy Spirit.  I saw churches that were Pentecostal in theology but not in practise suddenly explode in their services with messages in tongues, interpretations, words of knowledge for healing, words of wisdom that lead to marriages being restored and people being released into prosperity and abundance.

I saw churches that have had great sermons, great truths suddenly have great manifestations that caught everyone by joyous surprise.

I saw Christians who had been opposed to the gifts of the Holy Spirit standing in the streets of London sharing prophetic words with complete strangers.  People were weeping and repenting and coming to faith in the street – the power of the Holy Spirit was leading people to be witnesses, as taught in Acts.  I saw backsliders suddenly get excited about their faith again.  I saw healing crusades with thousands in attendance, people being healed of cancer, people getting out of wheelchairs, I saw deaf ears open and blind eyes open.

I saw healing being like a dinner bell calling people from all walks of life in London to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus said himself that Him healing the sick shows that He has the power to forgive sin.  And I see Him healing people and people realizing that He is the Lord over sin and sickness.

I see Muslims, Hindus, atheists, people from every creed and belief system becoming Christians as they see the healing power of the Lord.  I saw children being healed, I saw the Lord healing people.

What was most beautiful about this all is that this move of the Spirit was not focused around one pastor or one evangelist.  Every Christian, including day-old Christians, were laying hands on the sick and seeing them healed.  Every Christian was speaking words of faith and seeing those words materialize in the physical realm.  Every Christian was excited about the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit.  Five fold ministers were doing their real calling: the works of the believer and equipping the saints.

I know not every Christian will flow with the Holy Spirit, but when I saw this vision it was as if every Christian was.  Christians that no-one would have expected to step out in faith were jumping out of the boats of religion and walking out on the waters of the Spirit-led life.

Some churches were struggling to adapt to the power of the Lord and some Christians would step out in faith and then fall back to safe and routine as they started to grow in maturity.

As people started to realize the gifts were no substitute for maturity, and started to ask the Lord for an increase in wisdom and revelation, the second wave hit.

I will outline that in the second post, but I will end this post with this: there is coming to the church of the Lord Jesus Christ in London, England a move of the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit.  The Word of God says desire spiritual gifts – and I encourage everyone reading this to ask the Lord right now for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to operate fully in their life and in the life of every Christian in London and across the world.

This is such an exciting time to be a Christian, such a wonderful time to be alive.  Praise His name for ever!

Kenneth Hagin Prophetic Word (1980)

You are right on the verge, right on the verge of the greatest move and manifestation of the Spirit of God that this world has ever seen.

You’re right on the edge of it; and like on standing on the creek bank about to jump in. And if you’ll give the more earnest heed unto the things which you have heard, not only those things that you’ve heard about faith and those things that you’ve heard about healing, but also those things which you have heard about the Holy Spirit, and the things that you’ve heard about angels, and the things that you’ve heard about Divine Visitation, (for remember that it was prophesied of Joel of old that in the last days, saith the Lord, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams, and upon My hand maidens will I pour out My Spirit, and they will prophecy), so not only will it be that the young men will prophecy, but the young women will prophecy, and the anointing and the out-flow of the Spirit of God shall be great and amazing in those days — for there shall be a visitation of angels.

Be not afraid, but yet take heed even in these areas, for Satan himself has at times come as an angel of light. But examine things in the light of the scriptures and walk in the light of the Word of God. And sometimes the angel will give you direction, and even in your finances, and the direction that would save you life, as in the case of the shipwreck of Paul, and direction concerning ministry, as the salvation of Cornelius and his household, and Philip as the angel spoke to him to go down to Gaza and the Ethiopian was converted. And so in these days there shall come a mighty manifestation of the Spirit, and the work that God intended should be done in these last days shall be accomplished. For the time is short and things must be speeded up.

And you’ll learn much faster spiritual things then those of yesteryear. And you’ll develop much faster and it’ll be said of some they just virtually matured overnight. And they shall go forth to speak in the name of the Lord, because they understood the principle of faith.

They’ll understand the principles of the Kingdom. And they’ll understand the laws of God. And they’ll operate and minister in that area. And nothing will be hid from them. And though there are some who stand here now and have operated in a measure in those areas in times passed, and because they’ve let these things slip, they themselves in ministry and in life have slipped. And they shall be restored.

Yea, they shall even be restored this night. And the manifestation shall come and the glory of the Lord shall rest upon it and rest upon thee. And His glory shall be seen round about and the cloud of God will come and fill the house. And, yea, it will seem as though the whole building is filled with smoke, because you see, the glory of God shall be in manifestation. And great, great shall be the noise thereof and praise and adoration that shall go up from His people. And it shall be noised abroad. And men from afar shall here it. And men from afar shall here of it. And men from afar shall come to behold it. For the Lord shall be in manifestation in those days in all ways that He ever manifested Himself, both in the Old Covenant and in the New Covenant, plus the multiplying of the Spirit in the power of God of these days.

For men, as men grow more wicked and more wicked, and as Satan, because he knows his time is short, and, all of his cohorts and evil spirits go about as never before to devour, so the power of God, the glory of God, shall be increased and shall be multiplied. And it will flow like a mighty river, flow like a mighty river. Yea, the Spirit of God will flow like a mighty river.

And many, not only hundreds, not only thousands, but millions will be swept into the flow of that river, and shall flow forth in praised and glory. For the glory, for the glory of the Lord is in manifestation. The glory of the Lord will be seen of the face of the saints. The glory of God shall shine forth until men will walk in a place of business and people will fall on their knees and cry out to God though be said nothing. And women will walk into a place of business and people will fall and their knees and cry out to God though she opened not her mouth . For the glory of God will shine through. Yea, the glory of God will shine through.

Yea, the glory of God will shine through. For the manifestation of His power, and the manifestation of His glory, is reserved until this hour! And if it could be told, if it could be told in a way that you could see it, even with the eyes of your spirit, if it could be displayed at this moment before you in a tangible form that you could see with your physical eye, it would be very difficult for you to believe that which shall shortly come to pass. It would be very difficult for you to accept it.

But as you walk with the Lord, as you prepare your heart, as you feed upon His word, as you listen to what the Spirit of God says, your heart shall be prepared, and your mind will be changed until you will flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies through the air. And you’ll flow in the super natural as naturally as a fish will swim in the water. And you’ll flow in the supernatural as naturally as you breathe the very air. You’ll not be conscious of your faith.

You’ll not be conscious of what’s going on around you. But rather, you’ll be conscious of the flow of the Spirit God. And He will manifest Himself. And He will accomplish that which He desires. For you see, these are the last days, and this is the end time. And what is done must be done quickly. And it will be done. And the hearts of many will be cause to rejoice. So rejoice. Rejoice. Be glad and praise the Lord and prepare your hearts. And let Him prepare you for that which He has prepared for you.

And so walk in it. You shall walk in it. And you shall run. And you shall fly, literally, spiritually speaking. And you shall enjoy the fullness of that which is provided for you.
