As Birds Fly, As Fish Swim
Prophecy by Kenneth E. Hagin, 1980: You are right on the verge, right on the verge of the greatest move and manifestation of the Spirit of God that this world has ever seen. You’re right on the edge of it and like standing on the creek bank about to jump it.
And if you’ll give the more earnest heed unto the things which you have heard, not only those things you’ve heard about faith and those things you have heard about healing, but those things you have heard about the Holy Spirit. And the things you’ve heard about Angels. And the things you’ve heard about Divine Visitation. For remember what was prophesied of Joel of old “that in the last days, saith the Lord, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams, and upon My hand maidens will I pour out My Spirit, and they will prophesy.” So not only will it be that the young men will prophesy, but the young women will prophesy, and the anointing and the outflow of the Spirit of God shall great and amazing in those days.
For there shall be a visitation of angels. Be not afraid. But take ye heed even in those areas, for Satan himself has at times come as an angel of light. But examine things in the light of the Scriptures and walk in the Light of the Word of God. And sometimes the angel will give you direction, and even in your finances, and the direction that would save your life as in the case of the shipwreck of Paul. And direction concerning ministry as the salvation of Cornelius and his household, and Phillip as the angel spoke to him to go down to Gaza and the Ethiopian was converted.
And so in these days there shall come a mighty manifestation of the Spirit; and the work that God intended should be done in these last days shall be accomplished, for the time is short and things must be speeded up.
And you’ll learn much faster spiritual things than those of yesteryear. And you’ll develop much faster, and it’ll be said of some they just virtually matured overnight. And they shall go forth to speak in the Name of the Lord, because they understood the principle of faith. They’ll understand the principles of the Kingdom. And they’ll understand the laws of God. And they’ll operate and minister in that area. And nothing will be hidden from them.
(And though there are some who stand here now and have operated in a measure in those areas in times past, and because they’ve let these things slip, they themselves in ministry and in life have slipped. And they shall be restored. Yes they shall even be restored this night.)
And the manifestation shall come and the Glory of the Lord shall rest upon it and rest upon thee. And His Glory shall be seen round about. And the Cloud will come and fill this house. And, yea, it will seem as though the whole building is filled with smoke, because, you see, the Glory of the Lord will be in manifestation.
And great, great will be the noise thereof and praise and adoration will go up from His people. And it shall be noised abroad. And men from afar shall hear of it. And men from afar shall come to behold it.
For the Lord shall be in manifestation in those days in all ways that He ever manifested Himself, both in the Old Covenant and in the New Covenant, plus the multiplying of the Spirit in the power of God in these days.
For men, as men grow more wicked and more wicked, and as Satan, because he knows his time is short, and all of his cohorts and evil spiritsgo about as never before to devour, so the Power of God, the Glory of God, shall be increased and shall be multiplied. And it shall flow like a mighty river, flow like a mighty river. Yea, the Spirit of God will flow like a mighty river.
And many, not only hundreds, not only thousands, but millions will be swept into the flow of that river, and they shall flow forth in praise and Glory. For the Glory, for the Glory of the Lord is in manifestation. The Glory of the Lord will be seen on the faces of the saints. The Glory of the Lord shall shine forth until men will walk in a place of business and people will fall on their knees and cry out to God though he said nothing. And women will walk into a place of business and people will fall on their knees and cry out to God though she opened not her mouth. For the Glory of the Lord will shine through. Yea the Glory of the Lord will shine through.
For the manifestation of His power, and the manifestation of His Glory is reserved until this hour! And if it could be told in a way that you could see it, even with the eyes of your spirit, if it could be displayed at this moment before you in a tangible form that you could see with your physical eye, it would be very difficult for you to believe that which shall shortly come to pass. It would be very difficult for you to accept it.
But as you walk with Lord, as you prepare your heart, as you feed upon His Word, as you listen to what the Spirit of God says, Your heart shall be prepared and your mind will be changed until you flow in the supernatural as naturally as a bird flies through the air. And you’ll flow in the supernatural as naturally as a fish will swim in the water. And you’ll flow in the supernatural naturally as you breathe the very air.
And you’ll not be conscious of what’s going on around you, but rather you’ll be conscious of the flow of the Spirit of God. And He will manifest Himself. And He will accomplish that which He desires. For you see, these are the last days, and this is the end time. And what is done must be done quickly. And it will be done. And the hearts of many will be caused to rejoice. So Rejoice! Rejoice! Be glad and praise the Lord and prepare your hearts and let Him prepare you for that which He has prepared for you.
And so walk in it. You shall walk in it. And you shall run. And you shall fly, literally spiritually speaking. And you shall enjoy the fullness of that which is provided for you.
