  • A CRY is RISING by David Wilkerson

    by David Wilkerson

    God wants to break through to his people. As Scripture predicts,
    the devil has come down with great wrath, knowing his time is short.
    Right now, Godīs people need a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit;
    a supernatural touch even greater than the one at Pentecost. The
    cry that is called for today was heard in Isaiahīs day: "Oh, that
    You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! ... For
    since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived
    by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, who acts
    for the one who waits for Him" (Isaiah 64:1, 4).

    On the Day of Pentecost, the 120 disciples gathered in the Upper
    Room. They had come together as one body for one purpose: the
    hope of seeing Jesusī promise fulfilled: "Behold, I send the Promise
    of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you
    are endued with power from on high" (Luke 24:49). Their cry was
    the same as in Isaiahīs day: "Lord, rend the heavens and come
    down. Let all opposition, human and demonic, melt at your
    presence, so the lost may be saved." And we know what happened!
    The Holy Spirit fell, with visible fire appearing on the disciplesī
    heads. They emerged from that room forever changed and
    thousands of lives were transformed as a result.

    Consider what God was doing in that moment. All around the
    world there was great darkness, yet Godīs focus was on 120
    humble, praying saints gathered in a small, rented room. And
    now, today, God is preparing a people who have stirred themselves
    to lay hold of him. In small churches and gatherings all over the
    world, a cry is rising and it is getting more intense: "God, tear
    open the heavens and come down. Send your Holy Spirit fire and
    manifest your presence."

    The only thing those 120 disciples in the Upper Room had to
    hold onto was a promise from Jesus that he would come. And
    he did come, with power unseen in all of history. Likewise today,
    all we have to hold onto is a promise from our Lord. He pledged
    to all who would follow him, "I appoint unto you a kingdom" (Luke 22:29).

    Right now, the Lord is hearing his peopleīs cry, all over the world.
    As the Spirit falls and stirs our hearts, let this be our cry also:
    "Behold, Jesus is coming. Let us go out to meet him!"
