Christians from all over the world gathered in California at the Los Angeles Coliseum for the 110th anniversary of the Azusa Street Revival that took place in 1906. What God is doing now is a precursor to many of the prophetic words of a coming outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is such an exciting encounter not only to witness what God is doing but also to be part of the generation when it is happening.
The last time such a monumental event occurred in the Los Angeles Coliseum was during the Billy Graham Crusades in 1963. During this crusade, from August 15th to September 8th, a total of 920,927 gathered during the events. If these events are not exciting, take into consideration the prophetic word Lou Engle, founder of The Call, shared during the Azusa Now event. “The proclamation of the Gospel, signs, and wonders, and stadiums will be filled, and Billy Graham’s Mantle is coming on the nation.”
A close friend of Lou’s, Rabbi Jason Sobel, a Messianic Believer, which means a Jew who has received Jesus as The Messiah, had a significant dream. In this dream, the man received a phone call from four Ruth’s: Ruth Prince, Derrick Prince’s wife who loved Israel, Ruth Graham, Billy Graham’s wife, Ruth Heflin who is a friend of Israel, and Ruth from Ruth and Boaz as described in the Book of Ruth in the Bible. The Bible shares that anyone that is not a Jew is considered a Gentile. When Jew and Gentile unite together, it is significant!
Lou shares the significance of this dream and what it means. “I knew the dream meant that there was coming a call when the Gentile Ruth’s would begin to unite together all across the globe and begin to declare ‘Your people will be my people,’ we’re in that moment right now!” Rabbi Sobel continues to describe the significance of the moment. “I believe that we are in a John 21 moment where the Lord is about to tell us to cast the net and this is the greatest catch the world has ever seen. IT IS ABOUT TO COME NOW! They (disciples) were fishing all night and caught nothing and Messiah said throw the net on the right side of the boat. Why on the right side? Because that is the side of love, that is the side of unity, that is the side of relationship. And until we join that, the great catch won’t come.”
As the book of Ruth describes, Ruth was a destitute, homeless and hungry Gentile Moabite woman. But when she met Boaz, all of that changed. Rabbi Sobel expresses, “When she entered into covenant relationship with a Jewish man, Boaz, and when they came together in covenant relationship, she didn’t just get the gleanings of the field she got the full inheritance.” The significance of the four Ruth’s in the prophetic dream that Rabbi Sobel received shows a powerful perspective on the genealogy of Jesus. Rabbi Sobel continues, “There are four women in the genealogy of Yeshua Jesus, they are all Gentiles. Why? Because, The Kingdom of God, The Messianic King, and The Kingdom cannot be birthed unless Jew and Gentile birth it together. When we do, we see the Kingdom of God come on Earth as it is in Heaven. That’s why the Enemy has historically tried to divide Jew and Gentile because he knows that when you unite in the Messiah, we become an unstoppable force for global change and transformation. It’s time to heal the original schism in the Church. The first division was between Jew and Gentile. When we heal that schism, when we repair that division we will see the great catch of John 21…there will be a worldwide outpouring of the Holy Spirit!”
As Rabbi Sobel continues to declare these truths, “First in English, then with my Arab brother here, in Arabic, because friends, ISAAC AND ISHMAEL ARE COMING BACK TOGETHER! THE FAMILY IS BEING HEALED! WE ARE ONE IN MESSIAH!” As the scripture verse of Ruth 1:16 is projected onto the many screens on the stage, tens of thousands of believers cry out the words of Ruth 1:16 in unison, “DO NOT PLEAD WITH ME TO ABANDON YOU, TO TURN BACK FROM FOLLOWING YOU. FOR WHERE YOU GO, I WILL GO, AND WHERE YOU STAY, I WILL STAY. YOUR PEOPLE WILL BE MY PEOPLE, AND YOUR GOD WILL BE MY GOD.” When Ruth made this declaration, she was making a sacrificial covenant as Lou shared and we can choose to do the same!
Be encouraged to see the Church come together and join in with the declaration. As one draws closer to the Lord it is important to be built up as a disciple of Jesus, so you can keep going no matter what you face. You can do that through Emmaus Road which is a discipleship journey, and it will teach you how to walk as Jesus did. You can start today, and this will also equip you to lead others on the same discipleship journey! It is important for us to be ready for the harvest of souls that are coming into the Kingdom of God! Also, you must make a decision for Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior to be a part of this and you can do that today if you haven’t already! We made this same decision and shared our testimonies at Meet My Father. Read those stories and don’t wait another moment to make Jesus the Lord of your life. We want to hear from you if you made this decision! Welcome to the family! You can write to us at [email protected]. Greg shared in this segment.
