"A Coming Tsunami Of Answered Prayer"
As I prayed about the coming of the year 2015, I saw an image of approaching waves. I saw wave after wave approaching our shoreline and crashing upon our nation. While many people are expecting waves of terrorism and disease to arrive, the Lord said:
"I want you to look for the other waves. Look for the waves I am sending. This is where your focus needs to be. The waves I am sending will overcome these lesser waves of fear and death and wash over your nation with the fruit of My presence."
As I heard these words, I knew that long awaited promises were about to be fulfilled.
Many unforeseen things are approaching the nations of the world at this time. Without hope, fear and panic can direct our response to what is coming. It is our choice where we will focus our attention in this unique moment of human history.
When I saw the image of waves, I saw a powerful tsunami approaching the West Coast of the United States. This was not a natural tsunami, but a tsunami of answered prayers. When this tsunami struck our coastline it broke upon our nation with supernatural power. (Photo via Wikimedia)
Waves Of God's Presence To Our Nation
The same day God that revealed the image of the tsunami, I attended a worship service at Living Waters Church in Medford, Oregon. A song from Bethel Music, "You Make Me Brave", was being played by the worship team.
The presence of God was felt in the sanctuary in a very powerful way. My wife, Jan, asked me, "Did you feel what was going on in worship today?" I did sense something unusual. All day long one part of that song continued to replay in my heart. I kept hearing the lyrics:
"As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us
You are not against us
Champion of Heaven
You made a way for all to enter in."
These approaching waves of God's manifest presence are working their way toward our nation because it is His heart to overwhelm us with His love. At some point in a previous season prayer was released that came into agreement with God's heart.
In the deep waters of the spiritual realm, the faith generated by these prayers has displaced fear and unbelief. Like a natural tsunami, this displacement has created the shift needed to birth a series of spiritual tsunamis that have been running silently in the deep waters of the spirit world toward our nation.
Natural tsunamis can travel at airliner speeds across the full span of an ocean. They remain virtually undetected as they travel through the depths of an ocean to finally meet the rising undersea geography of a continent releasing their power upon impact with the shallow coastline.
His Waves Release Destiny
In the next few weeks leading up to 2015, I feel these waves of answered prayer will arrive on our shores mounting up in a powerful demonstration of God's presence upon our nation. In a natural tsunami scenario you would run away in order to survive. When this spiritual tsunami arrives you will want to run toward it and dive headlong into its wave.
Waves of darkness and gloom have been forecast in great detail and some of these events could actually arrive on our shores, but God wants our attention to be focused on a different scenario. This is a time to stand on the shores of our culture and look with hope for what God is bringing our way. (Photo via pixabay)
Waves of terror, disease and fear do not carry our destiny. Only God's presence carries our destiny – this is where we are to focus our attention. When each of us discovers the depth of God's love for us and from that love, our individual God-birthed destiny, that discovery will begin to change the destiny of our cities and our nation. The waves of 2015 are coming to release that destiny.

"A Generation of Glory Carriers Ministering Out Of the Cloud of Glory"
Intro from Munday Martin:
Jesse Shamp is a next-generation leader God is raising up with a ravenous desire for world evangelism. I have been in close relationship with Jesse Shamp and his family since 2000. Jesse has traveled around the Globe with me on missions and ministry trips, and for years I have watched and been inspired by his lifestyle of prayer and dedication to seeing the lost saved. I am truly amazed at the character, spiritual maturity, love for the Word, servant-hearted nature, and child-like joy in Jesse.
Jesse will be sent out to the nations as a harvester of souls and is seeing miracles, signs, wonders, and decisions for Christ manifest in his ministry. It is my delight to commend to you the life, words, and ministry of my friend, Jesse Shamp who will, with many sons he will raise up, help bring the Church and world into the next Great Awakening on the earth.

A Dream: The Glory Cloud
The Lord gave me a dream of an awakening that will take place in America. In this dream, I was standing in a stadium in America that was filled with thousands of people. The glory of the Lord was extremely intense and electric. I watched as a man walked out onto the platform and began to preach the Gospel. There was a golden cloud surrounding him, and as he began to preach, many were healed in a moment's time. These people were healed out of the glory and the goodness of God. The Bible says that it is the goodness of God that leads a man to repentance (Romans 2:4).
I believe that God is going to reap a mighty harvest of souls in America through miracles, signs, and wonders. God will be releasing many who will not just minister out of the anointing of laying hands on the sick, but God will be raising up those that will minister out of the glory of God.
Isaiah the Prophet once asked the question: Who are these that fly like a cloud? I believe that Isaiah was prophesying something for our day and time.
I believe that he was seeing a generation of glory carriers, those that would minister out of the cloud of glory. There is great revelation of God's glory being released now and it will continue to increase. (Photo via pixabay)
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and the glory shall be seen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1-2
The glory of the Lord is going to be seen in the Church and the world will see it, and be drawn to the presence and power of the Lord. Many of us are experiencing some of the glory now, but we haven't seen anything like what God is getting ready to release!
...And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. And behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with the palsy and they sought means to bring him in, and lay him before Him. Luke 5:17-18 KJV
As Jesus was ministering, the power of the Lord was present to heal. He said to the man, "I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home." Jesus did not have to lay hands on the man for him to be healed, but the man was healed out of the atmosphere of the Glory. I believe this is what will take place in America. The power of the Lord will be present to heal.
God is doing a new thing! He will be using many to speak in stadiums as the glory of God is poured out on America. God will not limit Himself to using one man, but He will use many. There will not be any one person that can take credit for what God will do and release.
I continued to dream that night about stadiums in America filled with thousands of people, hungry for the love and power of Jesus. God is ready to stretch out His hand over America for yet another awakening and a great harvest.
