004 - The Gulliver Prophecy
THE BRIEFING 004 - THE GULLIVER PROPHECY
Believe the prophets and you will succeed. 2 Chronicles 20:20
Last Spring In the days following Azusa Now, the Lord apprehended our team with an unexpected series of prophetic dreams and words. Confirmation after confirmation made it clear that we were to take Azusa Now eastward with multiple gatherings focused on awakening the Church and the budding promise of unprecedented revival.
With the fresh bread of new revelation came a resounding directive from the past. It happened like the prophet described in Isaiah 30:21 '"Your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”' Surprisingly, we heard the familiar and beloved “voice” of Bob Jones come alive to us once again in the message of his Gulliver Prophecy.
The Gulliver Prophecy - In 2005, while at a conference in Ohio, Bob had a vision of a great man who, in the past, had fallen asleep. He was lying on his back half-covered in dirt and his name was Gulliver. Little people from a place of little input had tied him down, but he was beginning to wake up. As Gulliver (a depiction of the corporate Body of Christ in the nation) began to rise, Bob saw that his head was in Cleveland, his heart was in Columbus, his reproductive organs were in Cincinnati, his left hand was in Philadelphia, and his right hand in Indianapolis. Bob watched the cords that were tying him down begin to snap off like rubber bands. He could see that his left foot was in Charlotte and his right foot was in Nashville and when this Revival Man finally stood and broke off all restraints, he planted both feet in Atlanta. Bob said, “God means to take Ohio, and then move through the other cities.” He was shown that when it came to Atlanta, the whole South would be swept up in revival.
Around the same time that God was gripping us at TheCall with Bob’s Gulliver vision, Bob’s widow Bonnie was visited by an angel and told to bring this word back to the Body of Christ once again. We were all deeply impressed that the time had come for Bob’s Revival Man to arise and that we must take seriously the cities and progression that God had shown. After meeting with several leaders in Ohio and finding a resounding faith among them, Azusa Now Cleveland was set for July 22-23 in Quicken Loans Arena.
Bob Jones once told us that there are the eagles that fly into the sun and receive revelation, but if you don’t have the wild geese “honkers” flying in V-formation in the second heavens, breaking through the principalities and powers, then the revelation of the eagle will not be manifested on the earth. Then, with a clear prophetic directive, Bob declared, “TheCall tribe is the honkers! You must breakthrough in prayer so that the prophetic visions of the eagles come to pass.” He acknowledged that there are prophetic purposes that were still hanging in the air waiting for intercessory honkers to bring them down. We understand that the Gulliver Prophecy is one of them. Therefore, in this window of time, we are calling men and women throughout Ohio and America to begin to intercede and decree the release of this prophetic promise. It is our conviction that we’ve come to a flashpoint moment for awakening and this moment must be seized!
TheCall leadership team has been in Ohio fasting and praying for this purpose throughout the month of June. On the evening of July 4th we pass the baton to hundreds, and perhaps thousands, throughout the region and the nation for 17 days of fasting and prayer leading up to July 22nd.
Pray for a great “cleaving” together in Cleveland (originally spelled Cleaveland) across lines of race, age and gender, that we might be in one place and once accord for an Acts 2 outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Pray Matthew 17 for 17 days - contending for deliverance in this region that is leading the nation in opioid deaths and addictions.
But this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting. Mt 17:21
Pray for the head to arise in Cleveland and for the corporate Body to function in the governmental authority that is ours in Christ.
Pray in the Spirit - The scriptures are clear that praying in the Spirit is of great benefit to us and we would do well to practice it often. We’ve also been shown in recent dreams that this spiritual weapon is a powerful asset in our current battle against powers and principalities. We urge you to pray in the Spirit often throughout these 17 days as we loose this corporate Gulliver from the bonds that have held him down.
It’s time to cross over into a new day of healing and awakening.
Let’s believe the prophets and succeed!
