“The Lord said the Shekinah is returning to the church [William Seymour, 1909: Next Revival Will Come in About 100 Years — It’s Due!]. It will return to the church — the same shekinah presence that was in Azusa Street will come in a greater measure in a hundred years time. In 2009, 2010, the Lord will restore the shekinah glory to the church. …
I believe we’re at the beginning of the beginning of the return of that open-heaven reality that the church in the book of Acts lived under.
I tell you, you came, tonight, and said, ‘Wow, I was expecting the wine all night,’ and we went into repentance.
Let me tell you about the church in the book of Acts. It said: everyone was scared of joining them. It said the fear of God was on the community, and no one dared join them. But they were highly esteemed.
Why did no one dare join them? Because if you went into their presence and you weren’t in a right spirit, you would get carried out dead because no flesh can glory in His sight.
Ananias and Sapphira walk in. They hide part of the truth and they’re carried out dead, because there was such a presence of the Lord. The Holy Spirit will not be manipulated, and the Lord is coming.
Beloved, they got carried out dead, but at the same time, Peter’s shadow was healing the sick. Unusual miracles were worked by Peter and Paul in the book of Acts, as there was an open-heaven reality over the church.

In my opinion:
At Asbury, they got right with each other so then the Shekinah could come: Asbury Revival, 1970: “Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?” But God couldn’t stay in His glory because their salvation doctrine was a broken cistern that couldn’t hold Water. And this is why current day awakenings/revivals haven’t fully blossomed and remained.
First, we must get our salvation doctrine right, Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way, so we can get and keep our lives right; then the Shekinah can come — and stay.
If we build it He will come: “Let Us Be ONE” (A Prophecy)
The Azusa Street Revival (1906-15): The biggest move of miracles in the history of America — The fire of God’s glory on the roof! “Even the fingernails grew back!” In 1909, Seymour prophesied the next revival will come in about 100 years! We’re due!!!
Tommy Welchel on William Seymour and Charles Parham’s 100-Year Prophecy: On the same day in 1909, hundreds of miles apart, they both prophesied God’s visible shekina glory would return to earth after 100 years, but this time everywhere!
The Welsh Revival of 1904-05 by J. Edwin Orr: A Countrywide Asbury-like REVIVAL! The 4 Points: #1 Confess any known sin, and put any wrong done to man right again. #2 Put away any doubtful habit. #3 Obey the Spirit promptly. #4 Confess your faith publicly.
Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!
Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!
‘Let Us Be ONE’ Prophecy Continues 10/8/08: “It’s TOO LATE to REVERSE what’s been done for MY MEN have been REJECTED … Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL … FREEeeeeeeeeeeeee———DOM at last … Your HEART will SWELL with LOVE and it will be EASY to REMAIN In Me when others are On The BOAT With You”
