Revive, Rebuild, Restore: America the Beautiful
We have all heard the stories that through the preaching and anointing of Charles Finney in upstate New York, factories were shut down by the power and glory of God. Some have longed for these days to return. The Lord spoke to me that in this generation the glory and presence of God will be so strong upon many prophetic gatherings, that as my people declare the Word of the Lord over regions in America, factories will reopen and dying manufacturing industries will revive and come to life again.This will cause many in the world to be in shock and awe. Those who had forecasted that all factories and the manufacturing had left America forever will shake in fear as it comes to life again through the prophetic decree. I see the fear of the Lord returning in the nation and many will shake as America rises from the ruins and waste. I see God will revive, rebuild, restore what many have called the wasteland of America. I saw this come in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this past weekend!
"And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own word: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it." Isaiah 58:11-14
Recently while ministering in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania the Lord revealed to me His intention to bless the nation. I was shown a river that will flow out of the city and the state of Pennsylvania. In the natural we know that there are three rivers in Pittsburgh, but in prayer I began to see a fourth river flowing, it was supernatural. The Lord called it; Revelation 22, a river to bring healing to American in a double portion!
"And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was therethe tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." Revelation 22:1-2
The Lord spoke to me that this river once flowed in the days of Kathryn Kuhlman. The nation saw this river flow when she held her great healing campaigns in the city of Pittsburgh. Thousands of people flocked to the river for healing and the city thrived spiritually during that time. I saw this supernatural river touch the city in a different way as well; in the natural during that time much of steel industry was blessed in the state of Pennsylvania and prosperity flowed from the state to the nation, but in 1976 Sister Kuhlman went to be with the Lord and in her death the anointing greatly wained in the region and the river ceased to flow as it once did. Just as the healing river began to dry up so to did the steel industry and many lost their jobs as a result, finances became tight and the people suffered.
On Saturday March 11th, as I was preaching I saw the healing river rise again in the city, I could hear the sound, could see it bursting forth. I heard the Lord say that the healing river will once again flow from this city and this state to heal America, but this time it will double. I saw miracles and wonders flowing out of Pittsburgh and the state of Pennsylvania, this will be one of many cities to come in America.
I heard the Lord say as the sign that the river has returned I will revive the steel industry of Pennsylvania. He spoke to me that He would use the state of Pennsylvania as a sign to America of what He will do in many manufacturing cities across the nation. He told me He would revive the steel industry to rebuild the nation once again to show the world His power to restore, revive and rebuild not only cities and nations, but His very people! Pennsylvania would be a sign of the river of healing flowing through America. I saw Pennsylvania steel flowing like a river across America and men and woman going to work once again. I saw bridges rebuilt, buildings restored, factories revived across the country all through Pennsylvania steel companies. I saw other manufacturing jobs return and other cities rebuilt, restored, and revived. Another city and state I saw touched as well was Detroit, Michigan and the automobile industry. It came to life once again and I saw automobiles flowing across our roads like a river. So many American factories and manufacturers came back to life. The Lord spoke to me and said son, this is a time for America to be revived, rebuilt, restored and it will start with Pennsylvania and the steel industry.
