Revival Broke Out Near Historic Cane Ridge, KY on Pentecost Sunday 2018

Rick Curry is leading the meetings

I was just at Cane Ridge, Kentucky to visit the site of the 1801 Cane Ridge Revival meeting where 20,000 people came for three days and the Holy Spirit fell upon them so mightily that reports of it spread across the country and fanned the Second Great Awakening into a brush-fire that swept millions into the Kingdom!

While there, I spoke with Rick Curry about his revival meetings.  This is surely a sign–along with the other multi-week revivals going on in other places right now–that God is waking His Church to get ready for the BIG WAVE of revival–a Third Great Awakening across America that will also sweep the planet and hopefully bring in a billion souls or more!

Here is Rick Curry’s article in Charisma.

There has been prevailing intercession and profound prophetic utterance released in a myriad of settings as the current generation becomes increasingly desperate for revival. One consistent cry has been for the ancient wells of revival and awakening in the land to be opened once again and for the nation to encounter the manifest glory of God in the power of a pervasive move of God. Are ancient wells opening? Are you sounds of the early stages of awakening being heard in the land?

Since having the dream most commonly referred to as the “Appeal to Heaven Dream,” we have traveled the old trails of awakening and significant revivals in the nation. We have, like a multitude of others, cried out for God to come and heal the land. We have partnered with many ministries to visit once again the old paths of America’s early revivals in the wilderness. We traveled along the El Camino Real from the Southern border near El Paso, Texas all the way through New Mexico into the most northern portions of the state.

We were given a dream about visiting all of the original eight capital cities of the nation, and we sought to fulfill the word of the Lord concerning that. We have journeyed along the old Wilderness Trail, following the path of the Pioneers through the Cumberland Pass into Kentucky and the western front of the young expanding nation. However, recently we have experienced an unusual outpouring of the Spirit in what has now become a 16-week revival in Kentucky. This revival began just a few miles from the old Cane Ridge Meeting House in Bourbon County, Kentucky in an old church that was last remodeled in the 1850s.

Stoically sitting alongside a country road in Bourbon County, Kentucky is the Mt. Carmel Christian Church. Mt. Carmel began in 1818 when one of five men denounced from the pulpit of the Old Stoner Mouth Presbyterian Church for attending the Cane Ridge revival held a camp meeting on his farm. We came to Bourbon County to celebrate the 200th anniversary with this congregation on Pentecost Sunday and to speak at a regional gathering to be held at River of Life Ministries in Paris, Kentucky. We have been in revival ever since.

During the evening service at Mt. Carmel, as worship filled the old sanctuary, we heard a remarkable sound that seemed to reverberate throughout the entire sanctuary. I glanced up to look at Jennifer, and it was obvious that she and the minister sitting next to her had also heard the sound. It sounded as if every person in the sanctuary started simultaneously stomping their feet on the old wooden floors. I felt quickened in my spirit that it was the sound of the Lord coming upon the land. It sounded like many horses thundering upon the land.

The worship that night was a single psalmist worshiping on an upright piano, leading the congregation into wonderful adoration of the King of glory. She was wholly attentive to hosting the presence of the Lord in worship and inviting us to go a journey with her. We went.

The altars were filled with people at the conclusion of the service. The people had lined all the way up the aisles of the church for prayer to the doors at the back of the sanctuary. People were crying and laughing hysterically at the same time. You could see people lying on the floor or gathering in their pews to pray with one another.

The sound of jubilant breakthrough was resonating from the hearts of the people in that service, and it was as though we all knew revival was being birthed. A revival on old Kentucky soil that had witnessed a move of God at Cane Ridge, just a few miles away, was about to erupt again with the manifest glory of God.

During revival services over the last 15 weeks, we have seen pastors and leaders repenting, weeping and laughing in an outpouring of refreshing. We have seen people saved, delivered and many returning to the Lord surrendering their yielding hearts.

We have seen many miracles and hearings that are really stunning in this stage of the revival. There have been at least two documented cases of healing of cancer along with many other miracles and dramatic healing. In addition to pastors and people coming from all over Kentucky, we have also had ministers visit the revival from numerous states including Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Oklahoma and New Jersey, to name a few. We now enter into week No. 16 with no end in sight.

Kentucky leaders are creating synergy and releasing strategy for Kentucky’s awakening. The Lord is summoning leaders to come together in humility, honor and the heart of the Father for a generational move of God all across the nation.

Are you ready to take your place?”

Invitation to Watch Livestream of Turnaround Prayer Conference

At a home in Chesapeake: Feb 22-24

Hi Prayer Warriors!

We are entering a crucial time in the history of our Nation. A time for America to continue to spiral downward or rise up in the power and righteousness of Our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ! Intercession in the Holy Spirit is the pathway to revival!

Because of this call of the Lord to intercede like never before, we are opening our home this weekend starting on Thursday evening at 7PM and ending on Saturday afternoon in order to LIVESTREAM the Conference from D.C.

We’ll be listening and praying along with the prophetic prayer warriors gathered at the Trump Hotel. It will be a time of crying out to the Lord for Breakthroughs in America, the Supreme Court, the Administration, etc. Prepare yourselves to be used mightily as we pray with one voice to Heaven and push back the enemy! Together we will see victories this year!

Below is a message from Dutch Sheets and also Conference times listings!

Dear Friends,
Convene: to come together or assemble, usually for a public
purpose; to summon to appear, as before a judicial officer
As we gather on 2/22—some in Washington, D.C., others via Livestream—we are not gathering for a typical conference. As the above definition states, we have been “summoned to appear before a judicial officer”— the Supreme Judge of the universe, the Ancient Of Days, the Most High God. He has summoned us as His ekklesia, the expression of His Kingdom government on earth, to gather before Him.

We know that Christ is the “Head” of this ekklesia, the Church. In both Hebrew (rosh) and Greek (kephale), the concept of a head refers not only to a physical head, but to “the highest in rank or authority; the one to whom others are subordinate.”

Christ is the highest ranking ruler “in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18), and has delegated that authority to His ekklesia, in order to enforce His kingdom rule on planet earth through her. In His model prayer, He told us to COMMAND His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).

For more information on prayer points to be covered at the Turnaround Conference, go to

See you this weekend. It will be history in the making! Praise God!

Thursday@ 7PM.
Friday starting@ 9AM, 2PM, & 7PM.
Saturday@ 9AM and
1 PM.

Blessings in Yeshua!

Worship & Marriage Ministry by Terry & Barbi Franklin: Oct 11-12

Free Worship Concert, Pastor's Meeting and Marriage Seminar Preview

A Treasure Hampton Roads Needs to Discover!

We are honored to have Terry & Barbi Frankin of Nashville, TN. visit Hampton Roads for the third time in four months.  The Franklins lead worshippers into heavenly places and have a beautiful marriage ministry–both of which have blessed thousands across the world for 25 years.  I met them at the home of our friends, Pastor Peter & Margaret McLewin, over dinner.  The Franklin’s had just lead another worship session at Peter’s church, Ingleside Church in Norfolk that weekend.

After dinner, Teri & Barbi led us in worship that was really heavenly. Barbi also sings prophetic songs over people as she plays the violin.  So refreshing! They also shared about how they have built a beautiful marriage after decades of godly prayer together. Click here for a video Terri wrote and sings that really speaks to me as a husband.

I was deeply touched by all of that and I sensed that these two have the kind of seasoned, wise and holy hearts that could help many in Hampton Roads, especially our Christian leaders. We pastors and ministry workers need this kind of ministry. They know lots of ministers, even many famous ones. They knew the agonies and the ecstasies of ministry first hand–especially how to have a strong marriage in ministry.

The McLewins and I heartily recommend the Franklin’s to the Body of Christ in Hampton Roads.  The videos online do not do them justice.

This Oct 11-12, on Wednesday evening and twice on Thursday, they will be ministering to us.  They will lead a service of just worship on Wednesday Oct. 11 at Ingleside Church at  925 Ingleside Rd, Norfolk, VA 23502 starting at 7 PM.  Free and open to the public!

Pastors can meet them at 10:30 on Thursday morning to learn more about their marriage ministry.  Click here to see many details about that. This meeting will be at the IHOP restaurant in Kempsville at 1316 Fordham Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23464.  That night at 7 PM, Terri & Barbi will lead a shorter time of ministry and give us a preview of what their marriage seminars look like. This meeting place will be announced at the morning meeting. Contact me at this email if you wish to be notified of that location.

Here is more detailed information about the Franklin’s. You will be surprised at the breadth and depth of their ministry!

Terry & Barbi Franklin are singers, songwriters, and speakers that have ministered full- time for over 32 years as a duo, focusing on their theme: “Inspiring Love in the Home & Revival in the Church.” Through Family Worship Events and Marriage Retreats nation-wide, as well as in 39 countries worldwide, they are touching countless marriages and families with the hope and love of Jesus.

Terry & Barbi possess a burning desire to see God bring Revival and Awakening to the church… starting inside our homes… and spreading to the whole Family of God and ultimately to unbelievers. Their sons, Tyler and Travis, ministered with them until their later college years, and now they are both married. As skilled singers, along with Terry’s abilities at the keyboard and Barbi’s talent on violin, they lead listeners into a worship experience that touches many hearts through their harmonies and heart-felt message.

Giving all the glory to God for His blessings and favor, they have founded a mission’s organization called Heart for the World, Inc, (now called Love Sings) which focuses on evangelism as well as bringing encouragement to marriages and families world-wide. Through marriage retreats, evangelistic festivals, and worship gatherings around the globe, the Franklins have seen many thousands of souls saved, churches planted, and lives changed by their message of hope, redemption, and restoration.

Through the years, they have worked with many well-known Christian leaders and artists such as Billy Graham, Jim Cymbala and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Focus on the Family, Coach Bill McCartney and Promise Keepers, Adrian Rogers, Jack Hayford, Steve & Annie Chapman, Bill & Gloria Gaither, David Jeremiah, Kay Arthur, Gary Smalley, Judge Roy Moore, Josh McDowell, Don Wildmon and The American Family Association, and many others. ( Empahsis mine)

As songwriters, they have had noteworthy success. Artists across a wide range, from The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir to Carrie Underwood have recorded their songs. They have won numerous Dove Awards and award nominations but more important to them are the changed lives and healed marriages and families they have seen through the years as God has used them.

Lot’s of Youtube videos of their music ministry here.   I looked at a few. Honestly–these videos do not communicate the power of their worship ministry now. They are at a new level of ministry now from what I have seen.

Come and see:

Praise Is Not an Option!

We have to--even in the worst of times. Remember Job?

This is from my son’s wife, Abigail. She leads intercessors in her church and knows a lot about how to deal with suffering. 
 Job praised the Lord..anyway!

In the past few months I have seen, heard, and experienced some really tough times.  

People have lost jobs and there has been financial struggles.  I have seen hearts broken from divorce and broken relationships.  People have died.  People are sick.  There are those with agonizing chronic illnesses.  I met someone who was homeless and was pleading with the Lord for a safe place to call home.  There is anger and strife; depression and anxiety.  There is despair, heartache, pain, and loss.  There are many disappointments and many tears shed.  And then the Lord reminded me of Job.

According to God, Job was the finest man in all the earth.  A man of integrity and prosperity.  A man that feared the Lord and stayed away from evil.  Do you know anyone like that?  God loved Job so much that even Satan couldn’t get to him because of the wall of protection around him, his home, and his property.

 Job was a wealthy man owning thousands of animals and many servants.  He was a family man.  He loved his children so much and held God in such high reverence that he would purify his children by offering burnt sacrifices to the Lord.  He was a well known man.  So well known, that Satan himself had his eye on him.  Now, I know we know how the story goes.  Satan petitions the Lord to test him.  God agrees.  

In his first test, there were four big blows and all at the same time.  Animals were stolen, farmhands killed, fire burned his sheep and all his shepherds, camels were stolen and more servants killed, and last but not least, all his children died.  Can you imagine?  And that was just the first test.  All of this news coming to you at one time, one messenger after another delivering heart wrenching news.  

Do you know what Job did?  He worshiped!  He fell to the ground and worshiped.  He lost everything he owned and everything he cherished.  In his deep pain, grief, and disappointment he fell to the ground and worshiped his God.  Job 1:21, “…The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away.  Praise the name of the Lord!”  His response to all that news was “Praise the name of Lord.”  

Let us be encouraged this month to worship and praise our precious Lord in all the heartache, suffering, and grief.  Job’s response was not at all what the Accuser, Satan, was expecting or anticipating.  Job’s act of worship and praise was a threat to the enemy.  Graham Cooke in his book, “Qualities of a Spiritual Warrior”, states, “Praise is not an option.  It is an absolute necessity, like air and water.  Your revelation of God must result in a praise proclamation against the enemy.”  

Attention Intercessors: You are warriors!  We must worship and praise even in all the tragedies.  It only takes a few to set the example for others.  It may not bring the dead back to life, heal you instantly, or put money in your bank account.  But it will change the atmosphere.  It will glorify God, advance His purposes for his kingdom, and it will kill the enemy.  It takes practice. Will you join me as God teaches us how to praise and worship in the midst of a dying and corrupt world?  We must first learn it for ourselves so that we may demonstrate it to others.

 The next time you receive some devastating news, as Job’s friends put it, “his suffering was too great for words” kind of news.  And whether it affects you directly or someone you are praying with, let us fall to the ground in holy worship and praise the name of the Lord.  

It’s not going to be easy, but as God encourages us and teaches us we can say as Job did in 23:10, “But he knows where I am going.  And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold.”          

You are oh so treasured and like Job, some of the finest men and women I know.
