We have entered apostolic times and stand on the cutting-edge of the restoration of the apostolic reforming (diorthosis) Church.
What an exciting time to be alive. The Spirit of God gave me a prophetic decree regarding a prelude to the greatest awaking the Church as ever seen, the Roar of Zion. The Lion of Judah is about to roar out of Zion and awaken the mighty men.
This is a prophetic decree that the Spirit of God gave me regarding a prelude to the greatest awaking the Church as ever seen, the roar of Zion.
“The restored apostolic Church will usher in the last great revival. This great revival will be carried on the wings of the roar of Zion. This great roar of Zion is the forerunner to the most prominent outpouring of the Holy Spirit since the book of Acts. It will be the bench-mark to the greatest awakening toward God and will eclipse anything that we have ever seen in Church history.”
Some would ask, “What is the roar of Zion that will usher in this last great revival?” The roar of Zion is that great collective voice, the sound of many waters -- unity in prayer, praise, purpose and faith. “Many waters” is a metaphor of the citizens of Zion. It is the working together of all five ministry ascension gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers that equip ever believer to do what God has called them to do (Ephesians 4:11). Scripture declares, “The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of His people, and the strength of the children of Israel” (Joel 3:16). This roar of Zion will be birthed in apostolic reforming churches and uttered out of the spirit of apostolic believers. Get ready for the mighty roar of Zion. It will surely change your life.
NEW APOSTOLIC SOUNDS FOR A NEW DAY
We are beginning to hear, see and experience outbreaks of this roar of Zion heard in the sound of prayer in churches throughout the nations. One of the greatest indications of the restoration of the new apostolic reforming Church is the sound of prayer and praise when you enter their presence. This new sound of apostolic prayer is distinct. What is it? It’s the roar of Zion. They have lifted up their voice, not only in an increasing level of sound, but in the fervor of apostolic and spiritual authority.
Strong prayer and praise is an indication of the presence of apostolic grace, strength and authority. What you are hearing is strength in prayer and fervency in praise. This type of spiritual climate results in a spiritual liberty that the Spirit of God loves to flow in. You will also experience a spiritual militant aggression that is high level in effectiveness. The Word declares that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16). How much more so for fervent believers, the forerunners and carriers of revival and reformation?
The Word says that God will present to Himself a glorious Church (Ephesians 5:27). Can there be a glorious Church without prayer? Can there be a glorious Church without strength, praise and liberty? The answer is no.
THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER
The foundational element missing in many churches today will be ushered in by this great roar of Zion, the spirit of prayer, praise and liberty. This will be one of the main earmarks of the new apostolic prophetic church that will finally free God’s people from religious bondage and mobilize them into their ministries. As apostolic grace increases, prayer will also increase.
Prayer is the dominate thing that Jesus said would identify His house. He declared, “My house shall be called the house of prayer” (Matthew 21:13). The great revivalist Charles Finney speaking about prayer said, “The Spirit in the hearts of saints is preeminently a spirit of prayer and, of course, to restrain prayer always quenches the Spirit.”
Thousands of people pray ever day, yet the spirit of prayer is the one thing that is missing. Why is the spirit of prayer missing? Because one must hunger and thirst after it. Only hunger can be satisfied. Strong apostolic prayer won’t come to you, you have to pursue it. The Bible declares, “Then shall you call upon me and you shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:12-13).
Spiritual liberty must be fought for with diligent fervor (Galatians 5:1). It is the spirit of prayer that will marshal in the new reforming songs that have been prophesied. These songs:
- Have a different sound.
- Are filled with Spirit-life.
- Carry His presence.
- Prepare the way for greater spiritual capacity.
- Activate believers to move forward in faith.
It is another realm beloved and from these new songs will come a high level of apostolic strength in the people (John 14:2). The result will be the roar of Zion coming out of the new apostolic Church that will sweep the earth with God’s glory. This roar of Zion will lift up the name of Jesus as the Most High, Ruler of heaven and earth. This spirit of prayer and praise will equip, release and help manifest the sons of God. Are you ready to discover the new apostolic revolution?
Here are some things that will start you on your journey entering the new apostolic revolution. First, the Bible declares “Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing” (Psalm 92:13-14).
Find a good Spirit-filled Bible believing church that has a visible grace. Avoid dead lifeless religious churches at all cost. Listen for that roar of Zion in the prayer and praises of the people. Remember that you are not only going to church to worship the Lord but to be equipped to do what He has called you to do (Ephesians 4:12). Look for those that believe in the activation of spiritual authority through the ministry of the laying on of hands and impartation (Romans 1:11).
Second, start working on your prayer life. Remember that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous maketh much spiritual power available. Make time daily to commune with the Lord but don’t forget about the importance of corporate prayer. Apostolic churches are governing churches and governing churches have corporate prayer meetings. That’s when believers get together and pray for specific things. Get involved in these corporate prayer meetings by participating in each one.
Finally, don’t forget that God has not called you to be ordinary. In fact, you are called to be a revolutionary agent of change. Let that roar of Zion come up in you.
