I went to bed Thursday morning around 2:30 AM and slept great for maybe an hour, but then I woke up and was wide awake. I was very tired, but somehow knew I was not going back to sleep because I felt an unusual tension, like something was not right, but I did not know what.
As I laid in bed wondering about it, I knew there was something different about this. It was not like the fears and anxieties I was used to battling for many years. I learned how to give them to God and allow Him to remove them from me, so I did what I always do when feeling pressed, I turned on anointed music and started seeking God, but this time it did not go away, even though I persevered, praying in the spirit for quite some time. Then I remembered the breakthrough revelation God gave me last month when He said, “This is not about you. What you are going through now is not about you. You are going through it for someone else.”
Then I understood I was feeling the effects of God birthing something new, a new revelation, a new word from heaven. I started getting excited about it, eager to know what it was, but I did not get any answers, so I kept pressing into God. I don’t know how long that went on, but I saw daylight coming through my window before finally drifting off to sleep.
Even before I started praying, the answer had already been sent in the form of an email. On the other side of the world at 1:55 AM my time, which was about a half hour before I went to sleep the first time, Pastor Daniel Nalliah from Catch the Fire Ministries in Hallam, Australia, a suburb of Melbourne, sent an email to Z3er Richard Braidich. Richard then forwarded it to me at 8:12 AM, which was not long after I fell asleep the second time.
When I woke up, I saw Richard’s email with just one short sentence, “This is the most exciting news of our lifetimes!”
That looked interesting, so I started reading the forwarded email from Pastor Daniel and was amazed because he described exactly what had just happened to me. He wrote:
“On 12th May 2017 from 2 AM to 5.15 AM, I had an amazing encounter with the Lord. It started off when I woke up at 2 AM and was very restless and could not sleep. I tried to sleep, but ended up praying in tongues for almost one hour. While praying, I had a real sense that there was a word coming from God, but it was blocked by the principalities and powers of darkness in high places. So, I continued to press on in prayer.
Around 4 AM, I received the word. ‘My Son, the time for the word spoken by Smith Wigglesworth to come to fulfilment is at hand. I want my church to prepare in the next three years for a mighty outpouring of My presence, which will start a national reformation starting 2020 – 2030 of LOVE and Holy Spirt FIRE. This Revival Fire will turn the nations back to me and cause national reformation throughout the whole world in many nations.’”
I believe the Holy Spirit orchestrated these events because not only did Pastor Daniel’s first paragraph perfectly describe what I had just experienced, but I received his email even before I woke up and it was sent before I had even prayed. So, I believe it was a confirmation, letting me know the word he shared in his second paragraph was truly from God. I also believe the tension I felt was spiritual birth pangs as the Holy Spirit was interceding through me (and many others) to give birth to this great move of God (Romans 8:26-27).
Pastor Daniel’s word also confirms the significance of the year 2020, which is a story I have been tracking for over a year and have already collected prophetic insights from over twenty people. I hope to share my findings soon in an upcoming podcast.
Although we are now at the beginning of this mighty outpouring, the story started nearly one hundred years ago. Perhaps the best place to start is in 2008 when 92-year-old Norm Armstrong was Senior Pastor at Four Square Gospel Church, an AOG church in Sydney, Australia. He invited Pastor Daniel Nalliah to hold meetings at his church as a guest speaker, but when Pastor Norm began introducing Pastor Daniel to his congregation, Pastor Norm suddenly came under a great anointing of the Holy Spirit and was prompted to share the following story.
“My father was a Salvation Army officer who sold insurance policies for a living. One of his customers was an elderly lady who would all ways tell him, ‘Son you need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit’. One day the lady got him through the Holy Spirit, he was baptized in the Holy Spirit and started speaking in tongues. This resulted in him having to leave the Salvation Army. Then my father went on to start a Pentecostal gathering at our home. Our home was possibly one of the first places in Australia in the early 1900’s where the Holy Spirit was free to move.
“I was only a very young boy when my Dad told me one day that a man called Smith Wigglesworth was coming to minister in our home, and that he was a mighty man of God. We were all very excited. The day came, and our house was packed out with people. I wanted to get a good look at him and the only place was the toilet seat, so I went in there to watch him preach.
Suddenly, Smith stopped preaching and told me (Pastor Norm) to come out of the toilet. Then he laid hands on me and started prophesying over me.” He said, “Australia you have been chosen by God for a great move of the Holy Spirit. This move of God will be the greatest move of God ever known in mankind’s history and will start towards the end of the 20th century and move into the 21st century. This move of God will start a great revival in Australia, spread throughout the whole world and usher in the second coming of Jesus. This will be the final revival before the coming of the Lord.
God will raise up a man in Australia who will lead this move of God under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This man will bow down to no one other than God. He will have tremendous favor in the nation of Australia.
My son, my (Smith Wigglesworth) eyes will not see this man, but you (Pastor Norm Armstrong) will meet this man before you go to be with the Lord. Now I will lay hands on you and pass on the mantle of God for this great mission. When you see this man, place your hands on him and prepare him for this mission and pass on this mantle.”
Then Pastor Norm turned and looked at Pastor Daniel and said, “You are that man I have been waiting for so many years, come here.”
Pastor Daniel stated, “I was so excited to hear the Word of the Lord from Smith Wigglesworth as I was so longing to meet someone who could confirm it. I was absolutely shocked when Pastor Norm called me out. I fell on my knees and started sobbing and crying in the presence of God as the presence of God was so amazing at that moment.”
Then Pastor Norm laid hands on Pastor Daniel and passed on the mantle as instructed by Smith Wigglesworth. He then lifted his hands up to heaven and said, “I am now ready to come home.”
Pastor Norm went home to be with the Lord in November 2011 at age 95.
In 2011, Pastor Daniel shared this story on his website with this statement:
“From that day onwards we have seen an amazing wave of healings and miracles in our ministry. It was so good to be back at the church where I received this great prophetic word from a true soldier in the army of God. The Lord has asked me to make some major changes in our ministry in preparation for this move of God in the next three years. I am sensing that there is going to be a mighty shaking and people are going to be crying out for God. At this time, the church will be their only answer.”
Pastor Daniel shared how the Lord asked him to make some major changes in preparation for this move of God in the next three years. I believe that is wise advice for everyone. God has revealed what is coming and when, so now it is up to us to use our remaining time wisely.
Some people interpret preparation as stocking up on food, water, and ammunition, but even more important than those things is preparing our spirit. When trouble comes, nothing will be more valuable than knowing how to be led by the Holy Spirit, how to recognize His voice and trust His leading. That is not something we learn overnight. It requires daily training through encounters with God and studying His word.
God has promised if we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, then He will see to it that all of the other things we need will be added to us. (Matthew 6:33)
Not only was Pastor Daniel told the great outpouring begins in 2020, but he sensed there will be a catalyst event, a mighty shaking, which will cause many people to cry out to God. Today, multitudes all over the world are trusting in their government to meet their needs, but I believe God is going to help them realize He is their source, which means a whole lot of shaking is coming. Then many will cry out to Him as their only hope. Then the mighty outpouring of His presence will come, starting in Australia and spreading to the whole world. Glory to God!
