In the midst of absolute, worldwide insanity with the setting up of the New World Order by world leaders, Noahide Laws, the Abraham Accord, a new prime minister in Israel (https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/netanyahu-out-israel-prime-minister/2021/06/13/eaac2738-c9e8-11eb-8708-64991f2acf28_story.html), wars and rumors of wars, plandemics, impending food shortages, famine, and economic upheaval caused by storms, locusts, and man; attacks on Israel from outside and within (from Gaza to vaccine intimidation: “‘We Won’t Force Vaccine; But Here’s What We Will Do’,”
https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/292039?fbclid=IwAR3RzrUrsMEIknUXnMLZHJFUWknTJriu_2pk7U9REOk4yJA1jGil-Cn6zL0 ); to increased persecution of Christians in nation after nation including Canada https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2021/02/22/persecution-pastor-imprisoned-in-canada/, the possibility of mandatory vaccinations https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/watchman-on-the-wall/, https://www.foxnews.com/us/more-than-170-houston-hospital-workers-suspended-over-refusing-vaccine), and the feeling that the 4 horses of Revelation are in the starting gate of the Tribulation https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/the-4-horses/, while all of this is unfolding and the world races headlong toward the cliff of Jacob’s Trouble and the Great Tribulation of Revelation, the Holy Spirit is still moving! Though it may not seem like it in your area, I want to encourage you with the undeniable fact that God is at work among His people — after all, isn’t He at work in you?
In the book of Acts we recount that as the Holy Spirit was being poured out and people were being saved day by day, persecution also rose more dramatically. While signs and wonders were everywhere present, so too was persecution. As the Spirit empowered the believers, the enemy arose against them like a flood. But, the more the enemy attacked, the more Christianity grew. The more persecution increased, the more lives were impacted by the incredible, power-packed message of the Gospel. The greater the pressure, the greater the salvations. Even so, against all odds, the Holy Spirit was poured out on all flesh and the Gospel spread in a steady blaze around the world.
What about now? What about today?
Acts 2 states, “17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved… “38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (emphasis mine)
Peter said that the Holy Spirit would be poured out in the last days, and that that day of Pentecost of Acts 2 marked the beginning of the last days. If that was the beginning, can we not infer that we are still in the last days and are closer to the end of them than Peter was? Furthermore, the promise is said to be for Peter’s day, for the generation after him, and even those who were “afar off” meaning, all generations that would come after them. That includes us.
What is God saying today?
“There is a sound of an abundance of rain that is coming. This is the move of God that I have promised you that would girdle the entirety of the world; it is touching my people. It is touching my people in Africa. It is touching my people in China. It is touching my people in Australia, South America; this is the move of God that I have promised you. Get ready! Get ready! It’s now. Now is the time. This is the move that will girdle the entirety of the world. And I am coming. And this is why I promised you. And it shall come to pass.” (prophetic utterance at Jimmy Swaggart’s church Family Worship Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, November 22, 2020 — https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/for-your-edification/)
“I’m gonna breathe on the embers again, and I will ignite this fire in your spirit saith the Lord. I am moving on my people says God. Humble yourself and look to Me, for I am well-able; I am able to do it. Oh the promise of the Father, the promise of the Spirit, it was given to you at a great price. I am going to baptize scores, says the Lord. You are going to see My work. All I can see is a hand of a man; the cloud, I can see it coming. It’s going to rain; it’s beginning to rain; it’s raining says the Lord. And you will see the great thing that I can do, says God.” (On May 16, 2021 yet another word from the Lord came forth as an encouragement to His people at Family Worship Center, that the rain is coming, the outpouring is coming, and is even here now worldwide — https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/for-your-edification/)
Then today, June 13, 2021, God spoke to His people yet again with a world of prophecy and encouragement saying,
“There is a wave of glory, says the Lord, that’s coming upon my people for the last time before the trumpet sounds. And I am going to heal many, says God. And I am even going to raise some, even those who are feeble and cannot walk. I am going to open the eyes of the blind. I am going to open the deaf ears. I am going to heal those in the hospital rooms, and I am going into the psychiatric floors, and I am going to [?]. I am even going to save those who have deeply sinned, says the Lord. Satan may come in but like a flood I will lift up a mighty standard against him. Hold on, says the Lord, for I am going forth with great and mighty power because of what I did at Calvary. It is your foundation. Hold fast, says the Lord, the trumpet is about to sound.” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/for-your-edification/
Thus, the Holy Spirit is still being poured out right now on His people around the world — in house after house, nation after nation, prison cell after prison cell, in bedrooms, in woods, in airplanes, caves, and ship cabins from sea to shining sea. This is the move of God. This is the outpouring. There is not another one coming. This is that. After all, He promised to do so in both Joel 2 and Acts 1-2. What He promised in Joel 2 He began to fulfill in Acts 2, and He is still fulfilling it to this day. We are still in the last days, and truly are in the last of the Last Days. IT IS NOT OVER!!! And below are videos to prove this refreshing fact.
And so, I pray, dear Christian reader, that you will not be discouraged. There are those who are standing up. There are those who are not backing down. There are those who are unashamed of the Gospel. There are those preaching on street corners, in arenas, in fields, at work, over the phone; there are those being saved, delivered, set free, baptized in water and being empowered by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is moving and has not stopped; the videos below prove this. I pray they lift your spirit, encourage your heart, edify you through and through, and even fill you with fullness of joy. May you be filled afresh with the Holy Spirit as you watch.
Let us be emboldened. Let us not back down. Let us stand together for Christ without fear of anything, and I mean anything! Let us not be weighted down by anything (Hebrews 12), for we are not alone in this fight! Quit coddling pet sins. Quit giving lame excuses. Quit holding onto to even the good things of this world. Quit thinking about getting away and your next vacation. Quit worrying about the vaccine. Quit focusing on your job. Quit desiring normal — stale, stagnant, lukewarm normal. And let us not hold ourselves back because of any emotional baggage or physical infirmity or financial matter, no matter what it is! Don’t limit God by your limitations! Is He not the One who made you and placed you in the very situation you find yourself now?
That’s right. Your situation is not out of God’s control. You think that the devil can do whatever he wants to whenever he wants to do so? Wrong. Our God still reigns. In John 11 we read, “1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.” (emphasis mine) And also in John 9 we read, “1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.” (emphasis mine)
In both of these stories, the situation in which the blind man and Lazarus, Mary and Martha found themselves was exactly where God wanted them to be at the exact time He wanted them to be there. Jesus delayed going to Lazarus. I’ll say that again. Jesus DELAYED. Someone was born blind and lived into adulthood blind and became a beggar. Why? For God’s glory. In the case of Lazarus, the delay lasted four days. In the case of the blind man the delay lasted from his birth into adulthood.
Why does God delay? That He might be glorified. Let us not forget what the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12, “9 And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
One other thing important to note here along with God’s glory and His strength in our weakness, there is something that really makes God mad. More often than not, God is slow to anger and abounding in loving kindness (Psalm 103:8). No matter what He is faced with, God is exceedingly patient. Though the earth was filled with violence and nearly all animals and humans had been contaminated genetically, God did immediately send the flood. Though the land of Canaan was filled with evil, He did not immediately wipe them out, but allowed for 400+ years before doing so. But, when we come to Exodus 4 we see what really makes God mad. “10 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses…” (emphasis mine)
Let’s not make God mad by listing our weaknesses and all of our reasons why we can’t do something that He wants us to do. “I’m too old.” “I’m too young.” “I haven’t been to Seminary.” “I have too many bills.” “I have an illness.” “I don’t know that language.” “I have children.” “I don’t know the Bible well enough.” Why not choose to just believe that we truly can do all things in Christ who strengthens us? (Philippians 4:13) After all, the empowering of the Holy Spirit is not by our might nor by our power. It’s not by us nor about us. It’s all about Him. It’s all about God fulfilling His promise. It’s all about God getting ALL of the glory.
As God’s Spirit is moving all around the world, let’s not miss it for the world or because we are too preoccupied with work or too worried about any number of things or too busy with nothing that will count for eternity or too fearful of all that seems out of control. It’s time to quit smelling like the dirt of earth, quit wallowing in the muck and mire, quit messing with stuff, and hoping in the things of this life. It is time to start smelling like the incense of heaven, walking in the Spirit, redeeming the time for the days are evil, lifting up our heads for our redemption is drawing near. Let’s not miss what God is doing and is about to do for any reason large or small. Let’s set our minds on things above, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2). Today is the day. Jesus is coming SOON!! Let’s do this!!!!
If you’ve not yet been empowered by the Holy Spirit, may this day be your day as you seek the Father for His promise that is for all who are far off– and those “far off” includes me and you and this entire generation. The promise is for you. The promise is for now. Why wait any longer?
If you’ve not been freshly filled by the Spirit, if you have been bogged down in this life for a while (Luke 21:34-36), if you have even lost the joy of your salvation (Psalm 51:52), I pray today that you are filled afresh with the Holy Spirit and fire (Acts 13:52; Ephesians 5:18 — In Greek “to be filled” means to be “continuously filled”), and that the joy of your salvation is restored to you and a right spirit renewed within you (Psalm 51:12).
Blessing to you all this Pentecost and BEYOND!!

The Moving of the Holy Spirit In Israel
Even so, the Gospel is being preached at the present time in the streets of Israel by Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat and the ministry team of Messiah of Israel Ministries. As bombs are bursting in air overhead and threats to the lives of Israelis are immanent in the streets, Zev and his team continue to aid the hurting financially as well as spiritually, and many are being saved as never before (videos below). Pastor Zev has been boldly preaching an undiluted message for many years from the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem to the streets of Tel Aviv in spite of intense, Rabbinic opposition.
“Rockets pounding Israel, Urgent Prayer!” May 15, 2021, https://myemail.constantcontact.com/Israel-Under-Fire–Urgent-Prayer-.html?soid=1109486046015&aid=IkMbZ2NwRsA In spite of ongoing, relentless rocket fire attacks from outside and heated, frightening attacks from enemies within, and fear overwhelming the people like a tidal wave, Pastor Zev Porat and the Messiah of Israel Ministries team continue to reach out to the hurting and desperate by handing out $250 food vouchers and the Gospel. The Holy Spirit is still moving and speaking through the new converts who have been waiting for an opportunity to share the Gospel and the peace of God through Jesus to their now petrified family and friends. Please, pray for them as they boldly proclaim the truth during this horrific time of growing darkness and impending death.

Bree Keyton of Worshipping Warriors Fellowship
“Bree ministers in power evangelism, with an apostolic/prophetic call, brandishing a sword of steel while exercising the sword of the Spirit. More than a million have been saved, delivered and received physical and emotional healing by the awesome power of God through her ministry. She leads dynamic prayer walk teams, and has a special call to break strongholds over cities, and nations. She leads rescue missions in jungles, travels the world teaching her college courses, and holding conferences and crusades.” Quote from her website: https://www.worshippingwarriorsfellowship.com/index.html
Keyna and Tanzania
Wayne and Denise Dery Sr. of The Plant International
“Wayne and Denise are founders of the plant international missions ministry. They plant and build churches in remote areas of Africa where there is little or no gospel message.This successful missions ministry is now building a church ever 30 days and planting a new work ever 60 days on the border of Kenya and Tanzania with the Massai people. Their passion is to win the lost and they truly live the verse, “Unto the uttermost.”
Wayne testifies that “God spoke so clearly to me. He said, “Wayne I want you to plant and build churches in places like this, where they don’t know me. “ God started in my heart that day The Plant International! Two months later we resigned our church and began the process of living God’s dream for our lives.The vision is to plant and build churches in areas where there is little or no gospel message. We are currently planting and building churches in Kenya Africa in the deep bush with the Maasai Tribes. God has blessed us so much. We now have an 11 acre compound in the bush of Majimoto Kenya. We have seen many churches built and miracles abound.” Quotes taken from their website: https://www.theplantintl.org/
Evangelist Daniel Chand
Evangelist Daniel Chand of Walking Like Jesus ministries, “…travels the nations preaching and equipping the Saints for the work of the ministry. Prior to accepting Jesus, Daniel was an amateur boxer. Living a life of violence & negativity, later resulted in his arrest and facing an 8-year imprisonment. Whilst Daniel was on bail, he was in a dark place and through his desperation he was told about Jesus. The love of God broke into Daniel’s life and this led to his powerful conversion. Not long after his salvation, Daniel would find people to pray for on the streets just as Jesus did. He began to see the sick healed and people surrendering their lives to Jesus in shopping centres, churches and even in hospitals. Daniel went on to graduate from the Reinhard Bonnke School of Evangelism. It was from this point ‘Walking Like Jesus’ was birthed and Daniel was catapulted into the ministry at the age of 21.” (quote from his youtube channel)
Street Evangelist Pastor Sherwood
Pastor Sherwood, age 71, was roughly arrested after complaints against him for preaching from Genesis 1 on God creating a man and a woman.
Three pastors —Coates, Pawlowski, and Stephens (Canada)– have been arrested for daring to allow their churches to meet together as commanded by God in Scripture https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2021/02/22/persecution-pastor-imprisoned-in-canada/. And there are still other Canadian pastors being locked out of their own churches, such as Pastor Hildebrandt and Pastor Reaume, and still others have been recently, heavily fined along with their church members, such as Pastor Reaume. But, they are undaunted and filled with fresh zeal to press on and proclaim. And while others around the world are facing dire persecution, arrest, imprisonment and even death, (https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/worldwide-persecution/ and https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/persecution/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcCHInA6UMg) the Holy Spirit is still moving, still being poured out, and the Gospel is still being preached boldly and unashamedly.
Worldwide Evangelism, Signs and Wonders
Andres Bisonni has been holding meetings large and small, far and wide, in nation after nation wherein he preaches the Gospel with signs and wonders following as the Holy Spirit is poured out upon the listeners in attendance (videos below). Though the lockdowns have slowed to a standstill his ability to travel, they have not slowed the move of the Spirit. According to information beneath one of his youtube videos he states, “We are also amazed at how the Lord is using these videos on social media to reach millions of lives all over the world with the gospel. We have been able to reach more lives during this pandemic than ever before! This past month alone we reached over a million people on Facebook with the message of Jesus!”
Phillip Blair and Torch of Christ Ministries
Preacher Phillip Blair of Torch of Christ Ministries takes the Gospel around the world via street preaching, prophetical calls to repentance, prayer, and evangelistic meetings. Even during the lockdowns, he traveled as he and his team were able (videos below) declaring the truth to all who will listen.
The United States
Evangelist Mario Murillo, author of Fresh Fire, is leading the way in tent revival after tent revival in California against all odds, in spite of restrictions, and waging war against demonic principalities and powers.
Sean Feucht of Hold the Line and Let Us Worship
Holy Light Ministries does not agree 100% with all ministers represented by the videos above. As with all ministries there are differences of opinion.
For example: The denomination of Pastor Henry Hildebrandt has had a questionable history, questionable past leadership, and all of them dress like they live in another century, but he and his congregation are suffering persecution gracefully and patiently, and he appears to have a sound soteriology — that salvation is through Jesus Christ alone.
Phillip Blair appears to believe that women’s heads need to be covered (because women who are speaking always have their heads covered in his videos), and has an unconventional mode of evangelism for at times he wears sackcloth like the Old Testament prophets and much of the time calls out on a megaphone through the streets, but his heart seems to be about reaching the lost with the Gospel of repentance and salvation through Jesus Christ alone.
Both Sean Feucht and Mario Murillo’s heart appear to be the Gospel, and their signs and wonders appear to be genuinely of the Holy Spirit. However, both are in league with members of the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation). The NAR is a nefarious group whose leaders quote the Bible well, but in the end they do not do what they just said. Furthermore, the NAR attribute ALL signs and wonders to God, forgetting that there are lying signs and wonders too. They teach discernment, but then do not practice it at all. They allow for demonic manifestations (including Kundalini) and say that they are of the Holy Spirit. They also have many prophets and what is called the school of the prophets, but those prophets are never 100% accurate — and in Bill Johnson’s Bethel School of Ministry in order to graduate, one cannot be 100% right, but must be wrong at least 3x. Inaccuracy is dismissed by the group as being normal, for no one can be right all of the time. However, Scripture tells us that if one is prophesying, it is via the Holy Spirit. Thus, no error is possible because the Holy Spirit is never wrong, for He leads us into all truth not error.
Holy Light Ministries does not condone nor endorse the NAR nor the school of the prophets nor all dreamers of dreams. However, neither does Holy Light believe in Cessationism (that signs and wonders have ceased when the Apostles died). Rather, Holy Light believes that both demonic entities and the Holy Spirit are active today through signs, wonders, dreams, visions, and prophetic utterances, and true, Biblically based discernment must be utilized in order to avoid being deceived.
