A Breakout at
An extraordinary move of God has
broken out at our facilities at Heritage. We have experienced many great
visitations of God in the past, but in some ways this one is more powerful and
seems to be more enduring than anything we have known before.
breakout began when something like a whirlwind came into the Bible class of our
K-12 school. Hearing the noise, students came running from other classes. Then
students from our School of Ministry and our staff joined in. Hours later, when
parents came to pick up their children, they ended up on the floor, with nearly
two hundred people remaining until after 1:00 a.m.
The next night the
number more than doubled, and the following night it doubled again. We had
purposefully not promoted this, simply because we did not know how long it would
last, but news of it is beginning to draw people from all over, and it does seem
that what is happening will continue and even increase in intensity. Significant
miracles and genuine deliverances are taking place. People are being radically
impacted and changed. Some of our students who were of the most concern to us
are leaders of the breakout. Their fellow students, teachers, and parents are in
awe at the transformations, knowing that years of preaching and teaching did not
accomplish what seems to have been done with one touch from God.
people of all ages are being touched, this breakout began with high school
students, and the youth seem to have the primary anointing. We have therefore
resolved to give oversight and direction as needed, but let the youth lead. When
they do, the Holy Spirit seems to come in waves which have been so strong that
even our leadership team has been gripped by fear at times. People who have been
in some of the most powerful recent revivals have all said this is as strong or
stronger than anything they have ever experienced.
We are not calling
this a revival yet, and we do not know how long it will last. For over fifty
years it has been prophesied that a revival will come to Charlotte that will
touch the ends of the earth. Over the last twelve years we have experienced what
we believe to be a pattern of spiritual birth pangs or contractions that will
eventually give birth to a major revival. As we get closer to a birth, the more
intense and frequent the contractions become, and what we have experienced has
followed that pattern. If what we are experiencing now is not the beginning of
the expected revival, then it is the most intense spiritual contraction we have
yet had by far and certainly indicates that the revival itself is very close. If
this turns out to be just a contraction, the revival is obviously going to be
something far beyond our previous expectations.
At the very least, we are
experiencing a significant breakthrough, and we intend to continue with nightly
meetings for as long as the Spirit is moving. We will be giving regular updates
as Special Bulletins on our website. If you are planning to come, we
suggest you come early because the facilities are starting to fill up. To
