When my husband showed me Cindy Jacob’s recent prophetic word posted March 15th on Charisma News, I was stunned because I had seen a similar vision and shared it the same day on opentheword.org. For those who don’t know Cindy, she heads Generals International and many consider her a strong prophetic voice in Charismatic circles.
In her article, Cindy wrote about a vision she recently received:
“As I was praying, I saw a vision of a huge wave, and the Lord spoke to me that there is a momentum gathering of the power of the Holy Spirit. A wave gathers power and goes towards the shore, and I see that there’s going to be many, many people working together. There’s going to be many groups working together.”
What I saw was very similar. It involved a large wave rising up and Jesus riding on the crest of the wave with outstretched arms and He was ready to fall on the church.
What was interesting in Cindy Jacob’s vision is that she saw that many groups would be working together in this new wave.
This caught my attention, because I received my vision as a group of us were praying for an event called Ask for Rain. This involved several church and ministry groups in our city and province coming together for two days of worship and prayer.
A couple of days later, I had two more visions or dreams. During the night I was unable to sleep and I kept hearing the words “heaven touching earth.” It was echoing in my heart and mind throughout the night and was keeping me awake. Finally, I fell asleep and the next morning when I awoke and put my feet on the floor I heard the words again “heaven touching earth.”
That day, I received a second vision. I saw people standing on the shoreline and others walking to it as this huge breaker wave crashed over them. The impression was that people needed to put themselves in position to be engulfed by this wave in order to be touched by heaven. I also got the impression that this next wave of the Holy Spirit may be different than what we have seen in the past.
I’m not going to be adamant that these things I have been experiencing are from God, but if God is the source, it may indicate that the next wave of God is building.
