While I was at the Rose Bowl, worshiping God with the thousands of other Christians, God suddenly said to me, “Be careful that you give no opinion as to what happens on this day, because I will show you that there is much going on that you will not see until later.” I knew that God had chosen 11/11/11 as a date to significantly impact the body of Christ. I was personally seeing its effects ricocheting through the church I pastor, the business I own, and the relationships that God has been developing in my life.
The next week God prompted me to go to Ukiah and visit Pastor Cal Thompson’s church in northern California. It had been a long time since I’d visited a congregation outside my own, so I felt the event was going to be significant. When my family arrived at our hotel, we had an instant sign from God that we were at the right place at the right time. (Three years earlier my son, Sunny, had received a personal a sign from God and it’s impact was very heavy upon Sandy and I.)
At the hotel, God gave me a most unusual prophecy for a young minister from Cairo, Egypt, the land of pyramids. The Lord suddenly spoke to me and said, “He came from a cave, like Elijah did after he ministered to Israel. When Egypt enters into outer space, this young man will enter into the fullness of his ministry.” The Lord then said, “I will confirm my word with four rainbows and a comet.”
As I shared the word with the young minister, I was afraid I’d really missed it because the word was so unusual. Afterwards he shared with me that his father was a minister at the Potter’s House in Cairo, that was actually a church inside a cave that is able to seat over 50,000 people! I realized that this was something very important from God, though I wasn’t exactly sure which word the Lord was going to confirm. Was it the one about Egypt, Ukiah, or what He was doing in California? I saw it was going to take time for all of this to be fulfilled.
Sunday morning I arrived back in San Francisco and went to the 7/11 next to our church to get a cup of coffee. The worker behind the counter suddenly pointed outside and said, “Look pastor! There is a rainbow over the church!” I thought, “Pretty cool the timing.” Two hours later a random group of young people reported that they saw a rainbow over a mountain behind the church. We ran outside to look and, sure enough, there was a second beautiful rainbow. This scenario continued as two more rainbows were spotted over San Francisco that same day.
To top it all off, Chris Rossetti’s wife, Darla, had a dream that night where she saw a rainbow that was drawn in the sky by a beam of light, almost like a comet. I believed these were confirming signs from God, but then it all came to a head on Tuesday morning at 4:00 a.m. I was sent an email video from the cave church in Cairo, where seventy-one thousand Christians were shown praying for Americans to have revival. The prayer on the video is ten minutes long. The Lord then told me to pray in tongues along with these Egyptian Christians for at least 30 minutes, and the release of their faith would rise up in my spirit and would give me the strength to conquer the forces of darkness that are coming against America.
In the wee hours of the morning I turned on the Egyptian video and began praying in the Spirit with them. My spirit began uniting with those wonderful Egyptian Christians, who are boldly living for God in the face of such overwhelming oppression coming at them from the evil forces throughout in their country. Suddenly, their strong faith shot through my spirit and I felt a grain of mustard-seed faith, the kind that can literally move mountains growing in me. What an incredible testimony to what God is doing with the line that He has drawn in the sand! I have included the video below. Watch it, pray in the Spirit, and feel faith in your heart begin to grow.
