Kenneth E. Hagin – April 28, 1983
In this move, in this move, in this move that is about to come, and even you’re in the edge of it right now. It will not be altogether something new that you’ve never seen. It’ll be a combination of everything you’ve seen put together and then, plus a little bit more.
In this move of God that is just about to spring upon you, there will be a manifestation of casting out demons that you haven’t seen yet. Now some have drawn back from casting out demons. And the Spirit of God said, “I began a move along that line a few years ago and men aborted the move, they mixed some of their own thinking in on it and they tried to control it, and do it according to pattern. And according to this way that we think it ought to be done.” But you haven’t seen anything yet of what you’re going to see in dealing with demons. For demons are let loose upon the earth, they’re going about as never before. Because they know their time is short!
And so in this multiplication, this advance of demon activity there will be the activity of the Holy Ghost. Demons that have harassed men, demons that have held ministries in check will leave.
And you have not seen yet what you will see in the area of dealing with demons, casting out demons; exercising authority over demons, and we’re about to step into it. Like you’d step through a door into another room.
And secondly, saith the Spirit of God, “You have not seen the revival of divine healing that you’re about to see.”
Oh yes you saw those that I raised up. You’ve seen men and women, mightily used of My Spirit. I sent them forth as a pilot program to try to train you. But many just looked at them and lifted them up, and some of them were lifted up in pride and the anointing left them. And some became money minded and lost the anointing.
But there will arise a group in this day that’s a brand-new breed. They’ll not be greedy of filthy lucre. They’ll not be wanting to attract attention unto themselves. They would care less whether God uses me. They’d rather God would use you. And God will not just use ministers, He’ll use laymen.
And there’ll be a revival of divine healing such as you have not seen in your lifetime, or read about, or heard about, saith the Lord! And a revival of the supernatural, not only the supernatural in casting out devils. Not only the supernatural in healing the sick. Not only the supernatural in speaking with other tongues. But the supernatural in the realm of the seen realm.
Men will see the glory of God, a cloud will hang over certain congregations, even the church building for days at a time. And everybody that passes by, sinner and saint alike will say, “Well what in the world is that? I’ve never seen anything like that.”
And there will be in other places, the fire of the Spirit…Oh yes, in the spirit realm some of us have seen it. In the spirit realm we’ve been conscious of the fire of God. But the fire will actually come into manifestation. And there’ll be people, sinners as well as saints, that will see fire all over the heads of the people.
There’ll be people driving down the street, or down the highway and they’ll see fire on top of the buildings. And they’ll come and say, “What does all this mean?”
But you see the Lord will use signs of His presence to bring people in the last days, into the fullness of His Spirit, and into full salvation.
And signs, signs! What kinds of signs?
Miraculous things in the realm of the Spirit! And then they’ll be manifested in the realm of the physical. And the glory of God will fall. And the power of God will be in manifestation. And men will —and women too will even be transported like Philip was and found in another place. And great! GREAT! GREAT! Shall be the reward thereof.
For the Lord God is the same God today as He was yesterday. His power has not diminished. And His Name is still the same. Today He can make the iron axe-head to float. Today He can divide the river just for two men to cross over on the other side. Today He can feed five thousand with a little boy’s lunch. He is the Miracle Working God.
Brag on Him! Lift Him up! Draw attention unto Him! Tell about how great He is. Get up in faith and tell what great things He’s going to do. And He’ll move and keep His Word with you! And many shall be astonished.
But the greatest miracle of all is that there’ll be so many fish caught in the net that the nets can’t hold them. There won’t be church houses enough to hold the people. Amen, Amen. For the purpose of it all is that you may be fishers of men. Hallelujah! Quit fishing, hallelujah, quit fishing in your bathtub. There’s not any fish in your own bathtub. Go out where the fishes are and throw out the net. Not the hook—the NET! And pull it in. Hallelujah. And bring them in.
And the glory of the Lord shall shine. And the end time shall come. And you’ll stand in the place, yes many of you that stand here including myself, will stand in the place of ministry that you’ve not stood in before. And will stand in the place that’s been ordained for you from the foundation of the earth! Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
And if it were to be — if it could…if it could… if it could be told you. If we were able to tell you in human language that which will transpire in some of your lives, and some of our lives who are here just now. Your mind would not be able to comprehend it. As you say, speaking in the human vernacular, it would almost blow your mind. But you’ll see it! You’ll rejoice in it! You’ll be glad of it! It’s just out there a little ways in front of you. Be faithful, be joyous, and rejoice in the Lord always. And He’ll bring it to pass.
Many shall go and tell the story, and His great glory show. The power of God in manifestation shall be the gifts of the Spirit, the manifestation of His Spirit. Into full potential shall come the ministry gifts, the apostle and prophet, the evangelist, and pastor and teacher too. Shall flow as one, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…one body, in one spirit, hallelujah, shall go forth to conquer and to do His deeds. And great shall be the reward thereof.
Thank Him! Glory to God. Now let me give you a further word of wisdom and advice.
Being conscious of a mighty move in your spirit, wanting and desiring to do the will of God, but don’t try to do it yourself. Just learn to relax and to flow with the Spirit. Don’t try to figure out in your head, “What does He want me to do?” Just learn to relax and flow with the Spirit. It’ll take care of itself; you don’t have to worry.
“I just wonder, I know there’s something, I know there is something He wants me to do.” Fine, just keep on praying. And just flow with the Spirit. You’ll not come into the full potential of what God has for you tomorrow. You’ll not come into the full potential of what God has for you next week. You’ll not come into the full potential of what God has for you next month. Some will not even come into the full potential of what God has for you next year. Some will not for quite a period of time. But, as you’re faithful, and as you’re trained, and as you learn to yield, you’ll move eventually into that place, hallelujah, that He had for you all along.
Glory to God. Glory to God. You see moving into that place of ministry or whatever it is, whether it’s full time ministry, or pulpit ministry, or personal ministry, or whatever your place is in the Body of Christ—moving into that place is fueled by prayer, fired by the Spirit and ignited with His glory. Hallelujah to Jesus. Glory to God. I said, “Glory to God.” Glory to God. Hallelujah, praise God.
But you see if there’s no fuel there, there’s nothing to ignite. Notice the Spirit said [I never thought of that, it came out of the inside of me] “Fueled by prayer, fired by the Spirit, ignited with His glory.” You have to stop and analyze that, there’s a difference between firing, igniting — yes.
You see it’s like the furnace, you see? There’s a pilot light there that fires the thing. And then, when the whole thing has become ignited then the heat flows out. Ha, ha, ha, can you see what He’s saying? Fueled by prayer, fired by the Spirit, ignited with His glory. Hallelujah. I never thought of that. I mean it just flowed up out of my spirit. But you see, if there’s no fuel there, there’s nothing to fire. If there’s no fuel, there’s nothing to fire. Fueled by prayer. Hallelujah!
