'The Great Awakening' Elaine Tavolacci
The Lord showed me two things this week about a great awakening that is about to be released in the earth. As I was reading the Song of Solomon the Holy Spirit began to reveal several things to me. He said: “There is a sleeping bride that is about to be awakened”. He showed me an analogy from the fairy tale which was titled “Sleeping Beauty”. The story was about a princess named Aurora. The name Aurora means “dawn” She was cursed to sleep for one hundred years by an evil fairy and then later was awakened by a handsome prince. The bride of Christ has been lulled to sleep and is about to be awakened. There are many battle weary believers who are about to be revived.
Jesus told a parable about ten virgins. Five of them were wise and kept oil in their lamps and the other five were foolish because they didn't continually refill their lamps with fresh oil each time it ran out. They were wearied from waiting for their bridegroom to come. Oil speaks as a metaphor of the Holy Spirit. Many of you are getting tired of waiting because you don't sense God moving in your lives. Some of you even feel as if the glory has departed (Ichabod) from your life. Jesus wants you to know that He did not leave you and He wants to release His fresh oil back into your life once again.
This is a time of acceleration and the bride of Christ must rise up and shake off the lethargy. Every opposition that arises and every challenge that you are facing is an opportunity for you to come to a higher ground. As seasons are shifting and there are changes coming into the world, it is now the time for the body to awaken and walk in the calling and authority that Jesus has entrusted to them. The shifting and the shaking that is happening in the natural realm is going to catapult you into the reality of who Jesus really is if you stand your ground. It is time for the lukewarm church to come out of their slumber and receive the fresh oil of the Holy Spirit.
The second thing that the Holy Spirit showed me were race horses at a starting gate ready to run in a race. They were not just average horses but they were thoroughbred horses that were equipped and groomed to run with speed and endurance. They were tenacious, strong, built up and trained to respond to basic stop and go instructions. They were fit with the correct bridle and bit in their mouth and disciplined to follow their masters’ commands
These are the prophets that the Lord is raising up as forerunners to release His word across the nations. Just as Elijah outran Ahab's chariots, they will run with the word that the Lord put in their mouth and confront the agenda of the enemy. They will show others how to be fed supernaturally in the times of famine and trust God for their provision just as Elijah did when he was fed by ravens. They will have the wisdom of Jesus as they are faced with challenges. They know their authority and will call down fire from heaven when confronted with the prophets of Baal. The Lord is raising them up as generals to lead the troops and equip their fellow soldiers. He is calling them to the front lines as brave and determined men and women who does not fear what lies ahead .
He is raising up prophets who will release His word with clarity and precision. He will give them the words to speak to take back their land. They will take a stand against unrighteousness, sin, and injustice, and they will be steadfast in their convictions. Some will walk in the anointing as ministers of old. Their voice carries authoritative words and as they decree a thing it shall be established. Just as Elijah passed his mantle to Elisha, there will be prophets who will receive a double portion anointing to be used in a mighty way in the great awakening that is to come.
"Fear not" says the Lord.
Matthew 25: 1-8 (TPT)
“At the time my coming draws near, heaven’s kingdom realm can be compared to ten maidens who took their oil lamps and went outside to meet the bridegroom and his bride.Five of them were foolish and ill-prepared, for they took no extra oil for their lamps. Five of them were wise and sensible, for they took flasks of olive oil with their lamps. When the bridegroom didn’t come when they expected, they all grew drowsy and fell asleep. Then suddenly, in the middle of the night, they were awakened by the shout ‘Get up! The bridegroom is here! Come out and have an encounter with him!’ So all the girls got up and trimmed their lamps.But the foolish ones were running out of oil, so they said to the five wise ones, ‘Share your oil with us, because our lamps are going out!’
'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
