For a few weeks now I keep hearing the words, “This summer will be remembered as a ‘Summer of Miracles.'”
I continually see the months of May through August as a swell in the spirit that births a time in history where great miracles are seen throughout the Earth. This “swell” will be like the miracle of birthing new life and will be marked by unprecedented miracles that occur in impossible circumstance.
This summer’s miracles will establish a “new norm” (normal) in the Church where miracles are no longer rare but frequent and widespread. Miracles will flow through children’s prayers, the prayers of unknown Saints and through those that God has raised up to stand before the masses.
Nations Will Shift and Be Brought Forth
These miracles will come upon nations that have been thought of as a “lost cause”. Get ready to see a move of God come upon the darkest places. We will see that the Saints in those nations who have been hidden and held captive will suddenly be like when Joseph was set free. Their prayers, their faithfulness in dark captivity and their worship will suddenly break through the darkness and light will come causing the darkness to be broken.
Isaiah 66:8 will be seen.
“Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children.”
The faithful remnant in nations that have been known to persecute Christians will emerge suddenly from captivity into freedom. They will worship freely and with great joy. They will be anointed to set the captives free.
This is not only for nations that have been under an oppressive government but it is for nations that have been considered “free” and yet darkness has gained a foothold.
Canada will experience a “tsunami” that will be like the water breaking before a birthing. It will shift the spiritual landscape and break down dividing walls. As they have stood to see other nations birthed, now they will see the birthing of God’s purposes on their own soil. The spiritual ice will melt in the Great North. The light of the Son will come upon the Inuits, the French, the English and the First People of the land and unity will emerge – one family formed to establish God’s purposes. God’s chosen remnant in Canada will also reach across the border, into the womb of the United States, and be a midwife for the birthing of what the Lord has planted in North America as a continent. The walls of division between the two nations will crumble.
Watch the nations that the enemy has attacked with acts of terrorism because the enemy has marked them for a great move of God.
Nations such as France, England, Germany, the US, Sweden, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Turkey, Egypt, Pakistan and Syria will experience a great move of God. They have all been chosen by God to strike terror in the enemy’s camp. What the enemy meant for harm God will turn for the profit and good of these nations. These will be like the days of Joseph and the mercy of God will triumph over judgement.
“But Joseph replied, ‘Don’t be afraid of me. Am I God, that I can punish you? You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. No, don’t be afraid. I will continue to take care of you and your children.’ So he reassured them by speaking kindly to them.” Genesis 50:19-21
The Fear of the Lord is Key
Many in the Body of Christ have suffered greatly over the past few years. The pressures have been great but these pressures have produced a refiner’s fire that has purified hearts, motives, beliefs and character.
A shift has taken place that has caused God’s people to move from the fear of man into the fear of the Lord. This shift is the key to this move of God that is swelling even now. The water will break to bring forth the birthing of seeing the sovereignty of God displayed throughout the nations.
The strength of man has not brought this forth but rather the humbling of man so that in great human weakness (humility) the strength of God will be made manifest.
“So He said to me, ‘This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.” Zechariah 4:6
I hear the words, “Grace, grace…” being shouted over the Church,
“But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.'” 2 Corinthians 12:9
The birthing of God’s purposes and promises begin with a breaking of the water. I see the dates May 24 – August 24 as a time for this Summer of Miracles and the swell of this water washing over people and nations. It is like a great bowl or basin of water is about to tip and pour down. Deep has called out to deep and it has filled this heavenly basin (bowl).
“Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls; all Your breakers and Your waves have rolled over me.” Psalm 42:7
This pouring out of water will not only cause a great move of God but it will also serve as a washing of His current-day disciples’ feet.
“So He got up from the table, took off His robe, wrapped a towel around His waist, and poured water into a basin. Then He began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel He had around Him.” John 13:4-5
Watch for and expect a Summer of Miracles to come upon the Church!
