Re-Digging the Wells of Revival- by Dutch Sheets

Re-Digging the Wells of Revival: Dutch Sheets’ Visits to Cane Ridge and Wales

welsh-revival-1898The Welsh Revival in 1898 (Sermonindex.com)

Scripture makes it clear that the Lord accomplishes His purposes on the earth not through one man or movement, but through the labors and legacy of many across multiple generations (Heb. 11:39-12:2). Working through a divine timeline that extends beyond a single lifetime, the Lord desires that we honor and build upon the foundations laid by those who have gone before us.

In Genesis 26, we are told that when Isaac dug water wells, he didn’t get to start with his own. Isaac recognized his hereditary right and responsibility to re-dig and restore the ancient wells of his father Abraham, which the Philistines stopped up after he died.

It was after re-digging his father’s wells that that the Lord appeared to Isaac and pronounced over him the same blessing previously spoken over Abraham. Not long after that, the Lord allowed Isaac’s servants to unearth his very own well.

I have spent more than a decade of my life teaching about the synergy of the ages; exhorting believers that in order for us to move forward in fulfilling God’s purposes for our generation, we must reach back to remember, honor and add to what He has done through previous generations. Through a recent sequence of events, however, the Lord once again invited me to tap into some historic wells of revival in order to release a fresh river of His glory to flow into our generation.

cane-ridge-revivalA few months ago, I was invited to minister at a small log cabin-style church in Kentucky, which happens to be the site of the historic Cane Ridge Revival of the late 1800s. During that powerful move of the Holy Spirit, tens of thousands of people came by wagon to the hillsides of Kentucky, hungry to hear the preaching of the Word and bask in the glory of God for days at a time. At these camp meetings, it was common to see dozens of ministers preaching simultaneously across the countryside, while multitudes were strewn along the ground, being moved upon by the extremely weighty presence of God. This revival swept through the southern states and beyond, helping to birth the Second Great Awakening! I found it most interesting that the Lord set up my itinerary in such a way that from Cane Ridge, He sent me to Wales—another extremely significant site of revival history!

Moving From Well to Well evanrobertsportrait

The nation of Wales is the place where revivalist Evan Roberts was baptized in the fire of God and commissioned by the Lord as a leader in the world-reaching Welsh Revival of the early 1900s. So many people were radically saved in that spiritual outpouring, that the nation of Wales experienced societal transformation. Judges had no cases to try, and law enforcement officials had no crime to deal with, so they formed traveling evangelistic singing groups!evan-roberts-in-his-60s

The presence of God was so strong among the common people that pubs closed down, sporting events were cancelled, thousands of depressed and drunken miners came to Jesus, and hundreds left everything behind to give their lives on the foreign mission field. It is believed that since the 1900s, there has never been a revival in world history that cannot trace its roots back to the nation-shaking Welsh Revival.

rees-howles-bible-college Wales was also home to Rees Howells, another significant contributor to revival history. His life of intercession, chronicled in the biography, Rees Howells Intercessor, has greatly influenced many people and movements of prayer, myself included. After being powerfully swept into the Welsh Revival, this former miner-turned-missionary devoted the rest of his life to serving the purposes of God for his generation—in the place of prayer.

howellsIn 1924 Howells founded The Bible College of Wales to train others in what the Lord had taught him. That place soon became a house of prayer for all nations, with students and staff joining Howells in fighting world battles on their knees. What transpired on that small campus unquestionably affected the course of world history, and has left a legacy of prayer that the Lord is inviting us to lay hold of today.

Fighting the Battles of the Kingdom 

Howells’ intercessors prayed all through World War II, engaging in the spiritual warfare necessary to take down the demonic powers encroaching upon the governments of nations through the dictatorial leadership mussolinihitlerof men like Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. They also prayed fervently through the 1948 U.N.-mandated vote on Israel’s status as a nation. Even after Howells’ passing, their ardent intercession continued under the leadership of his son, Samuel. They prayed through the Cuban missile crises, the Cold War between the U.S. and the USSR, and also helped pray in the signs and wonders movement of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Their story could be likened to Moses’ hilltop intercession affecting Joshua’s frontline battle. Scripture states that as long as Moses held up the staff of God in his hand, Joshua and Israel prevailed, but when Moses let his hands down, the enemy prevailed. Through this prophetic act of intercession—lifting up the rod, which represented the authority and power of God—the Lord faithfully responded by releasing victory on the battlefield (Ex. 17:8-16.) Likewise, Howells and his intercessors continually “held up” spiritual authority in the heavenly realms while soldiers experienced miraculous breakthroughs, enabling them to execute victory on the battlefield.

Die vernichtende Rede des Führers über Roosevelt. Am Donnerstag nachmittag hielt der Führer vor den Männern des Deutschen Reichtags die grosse und mit fieberhafter Spannung erwartete Rede zu dem von dem Kriegshetzer Roosevelt heraufbeschworenen Krieg im Pazifik. Auf der Regierungsbank (von rechts nach links) sieht man den Führer, neben ihm Reichsaussenminister v. Ribbentrop, Grossadmiral Reader, Generalfeldmarschall v. Brauchitsch, Generalfeldmarschall Keitel und die Reichsminister Dr. Frick und Dr. Goebbels. In der zweiten Reihe (von rechts): Die Reichsminister Graf Schwerin-Krosigk, Funk, Darré, Rust, Kerrl, Dr. Frank, Dr. Dorpmüller, Dr. Seyss-Inquart und Dr. Todt. Dahinter (von rechts): Reichsminister Rosenberg und die Staatsminister Dr. Meissner und Dr. Popitz. AV 65979During WWII in particular, God would give Howells prophetic insight concerning what was going to happen next and where they needed to strategically focus their intercession. After class each day, these devoted intercessors would contend in travailing prayer for hours and hours on end, sometimes praying through the night. They were determined to match in the spirit realm, the level of intensity and self-sacrifice experienced by heads of nations and soldiers on the frontlines of battle.

Impassioned about fulfilling their godly calling, Howells said, “If I am not called up to fight, and I know another way to help them and I don’t do it, I ought to be killed instead of them. They are facing death … for you and me. If they suffer more than we suffer for them, it will be our lifelong shame.” Howells and his students gave their lives to fighting the battles spiritually as if they were called to the frontlines of the war. With each new assignment, these hidden intercessors prevailed in their prayers, and the world marveled and breathed heavy sighs of relief at such dramatic turnarounds.

Re-Digging a Well

Despite the rich revival history at The Bible College of Wales, this spiritual well had fallen into disrepair. After the death of Howells’ son, Samuel, the directors of the school found it too costly to maintain the campus and keep the school running. For decades, the property went further into decay and was about to be sold to a developer for housing.

The Lord, however, had other plans and saw to it that this spiritual well was preserved and unstopped. He moved upon the heart of a pastor from Singapore, who not only caught God’s vision for restoring that place but also was willing to pay the price to make it happen. This pastor raised $10 million to purchase and restore the historic Bible College of Wales so that people from around the world could drink from this well of revival once again!

As a student of revival history, a teacher on intercession, and one called to awaken this nation to the purposes of God through prayer, it has always been a great desire of my heart to visit Wales and drink from its spiritual wells. Right after my time of ministry at Cane Ridge, I had the great honor of not only visiting the Bible College of Wales, but also serving as a key participant in the rededication ceremony for this historic well of revival.

During our stay at the Bible College, Ceci and I were assigned to the room of Rees’ son, Samuel Howells. bcofwalesviewThis room sits directly above the prayer room where decades of nation-changing prophetic intercession took place—what a privilege! Among the gathering of key leaders from around the world, I was also extended the honor of rededicating Howells’ Ebenezer stone of remembrance (1 Sam. 7:12).

Similar to what the prophet Samuel did to commemorate Israel’s victory against their enemies, Howells set up a huge stone as a continual reminder of the Lord’s providence and provision. Inscribed on one side of its marble top is the phrase, “Faith Is Substance.” On the other side, the words, “Jehovah Jireh.” When, as part of the rededication ceremony, this remembrance stone was relocated to the center of the campus and anointing oil was poured upon it, we could sense the glory of the Lord.

In that very holy moment, God met with me in a powerful way. I was overcome with the Lord’s kindness at 2015-dutch-sheets-at-wales-bible-collegegathering us all to this place to drink from this historic well. In that moment, I pledged to help carry on Howells’ legacy of prayer and recommitted my life to raising up a movement of prayer to take out the giants of our day and usher in a Third Great Awakening.

The rededication ceremony at the Bible College was not the only special appointment the Lord had planned for me. The same Singaporean leaders that restored Howells’ campus also purchased the little church in Wales where revivalist rees-howles-faithEvan Roberts met with God.

During the renovation process for converting that church into a house of prayer, the original Bible used by Evan Roberts during the Welsh Revival was found sitting under decades of dust on the pulpit of the church! I marveled at this find. You can see the Bible and the remembrance stone among the pictures below.

Paying the Price

I am so grateful for the Singaporeans who accepted the Lord’s invitation to take on the extremely costly and painstaking restoration of this well of revival history. But the investment required for releasing God’s river of revival into the nations of the earth doesn’t end with restored facilities.

God desires to raise up Roberts-like revivalists and bands of Howells-like intercessors through which He can release a greater awakening and shift the course of nations today. This will require a high level of commitment. These men were so powerfully used of God because they complied with the great extremes God required of them. This is a principle repeatedly seen in Scripture.

As I prayer walked the grounds of the Bible College of Wales, while I communed with the Lord in the church where Evan Roberts met with God, and even now, I hear Holy Spirit asking, “Who will pay the price in this generation?” God used Howells and his intercessors to contend against and defeat the demonic powers and principalities trying to take over the world.

Today, the goliaths of Islam, communism, human trafficking, abortion and the sexual rights agenda are standing at our door. Never has there been more at stake. We need the same warrior spirit of Howells’ era to arise in us—both in the place of prayer and in being a prophetic voice. No doubt, God has a plan. He always does something great in the face of the impossible!

I believe the Lord allowed for the restoration of these spiritual wells in Wales because He is releasing a spirit of contending prayer and revival into the nations of the earth once again. I believe we will see a new momentum of intercession—appealing to heaven and fighting kingdom battles on our knees, until the greatest Great Awakening the world has ever seen occurs.

You are a part of this! There is a spiritual inheritance available to you. Young people, especially, it is your time to arise! The Lord is anointing you to overthrow the Goliaths of our day and contend for the destinies of nations. The Lord is searching for those who will say, “I will pay the price.” For those who invest their lives in these costly battles of intercession, He will show Himself strong! (See 2 Chronicles 16:9.)

The Real Story about Syria, Trump, Clinton and how it links to the Bible.

It has become clear in the last few years that the western media is controlled and owned by globalist leaders who have a hidden agenda.

The truth about what is really happening in Syria and the world is opposite to what we hear on the nightly news. Sadly we are all subject to well crafted propaganda designed to promote the agenda of the ruling class.

Is that conspiracy theory?  After doing extensive research on the global financial system and the philosophies of many of the leading economic and political institutions in the world since the 2008 GFC- I have come to realize that the TRUTH has been hidden on purpose.

These three video’s will give you a little glimpse of what is happening. Maybe when the Snowdon feature film is released we will learn a little more? Read more on these issues at this website. Alan

Serious Financial Correction?

I am hearing that there could be another serious financial correction coming before during October 2016.

Harry Dent in his Sept 2015 book called “What to do when the Bubble Pops” has some concerning and informative research.  Plus many Youtube stories and now more main stream outlets are saying there is a serious correction or worse coming soon .  It does concern me that so many are now using alarming news reports and headlines in order to try to sell their newsletters/books and seminars.

There some important facts and trends appearing – these are the facts:

  1. According to Harry Dent the world is facing some serious ageing demographics (Baby Boomers) that will cause major downturns in many industries – and this is one major reason causing the economic concerns globally.Alan Greenspan
  2. Alan Greenspan has recently come out sounding a warning about the ageing baby boomer trend and that Governments especially in the US are not focusing on the issue, which according to Greenspan – if its not addressed will cause serious economic problems.
  3. APRA – Australia financial regulator has released a report sounding a warning that Australian Banks are at serious risk because of the high private debt levels in average families who have mortgages. The private debt levels are higher than back in 2008, so if another GFC hits jobs then there will be a quick and significant level of mortgage defaults that might bring down a few major banks.
  4. The China stock market is currently down 42% from its past highs, and the Chinese slow down has already been hurting Australian Industry and could have more serious effects in Australia – especially if China continues to slow. Dent believes China will have a major ongoing downward corrections because of all the Malinvestment.Ron Paul
  5. Retired US Congressman Ron Paul – is warning the world that the US Government is getting ready to confiscate large portions of it’s citizens assets, in particular the 7 Tillion Dollars of private super/retirement funds in order to prop up the Government and the Banking system.
  6. China and other BRIC’s countries have been buying up large amounts of gold with the possible plan to establish a new reserve currency – The Chinese Yuan Renminbi will be added to the United Nations/IMF- SDR (Special Drawing Rights) currency on October 1st 2016.
  7. All G20 nations are committed to giving their banking system the ability to legally “Bail in” or recapitalize the failing banks with the savings of their depositors.
  8. The counties that need close attention right now are bond markets in Spain and Italy as they are the next canary in the mine.

 

The Rich get Richer according to Oxfam. If we have another GFC2 will “Bail in” laws tip the world into civil revolt?

Oxfam UK released a report in Jan 2016 about what has been happening in the world economy as it relates to financial inequality. I am not a socialist but when you wealthy Wall streethear that “62 people own as much as the poorest half of the world’s population” and 1% of the world’s population owns more 99% of the worlds wealth you realize we have a real problem!

Is it any wonder that Donald Trump is getting so much support from the common man. It’s because the average wage earner and small business owner is waking up that the system is rigged and that a very small % of wealthy elite – eg 62 people are getting control of the world and the peoples governments in every nation.

When this happened in France in 1789 the people revolted in the French Revolution. Now it looks like its a global phenomenon.

When not one top banking executive has been jailed because of all the corruption exposed during the 2007-8 GFC  – it is now obvious that not only are the big banks do big to fail they are now do big to prosecute!

If there is another GFC the Banks now have legal authority to take depositors money (Bail in) to recapitalize their balance sheets.

Its time we move away from what seems a like a Death Economy towards a Life economy. A Preferred Economy that is gives back hope of a better future for all.

Does a Prime Minister Pray?

Alfred Deakin was Australia’s 2nd Prime Minister who was also the nation’s founding father! Australian’s know very little about the man who served his nation so faithfully, with such dedication and humility that even his political enemies loved and admired him.

He established the Australian High Court; he was the founder of the Navy and pioneered many of Australia’s foundations. He worked tirelessly towards seeing the unification of thAlfred Deakin websitee Australian colonies into a great federation and made Australia one nation. In the first Federal government he was Attorney General and Edmund Barton’s right hand man. Serving as Prime Minister for 3 terms, his Government passed more than 17 critical pieces of legislation and provided important national stability in a very chaotic unstable period.

He was one of the world’s greatest orators of his time, extremely literate; he read 100 books (in English and French) every year for much of his life. Few people understood where his incredible energy, humility and character came from, but the secret was his prayer life.

He wrote down 400 prayers in a small private journal and within these pages are words of profound insight, humility and desire to know the will of God and a desire to be filled with Gods spirit so he could be empowered to serve his nation.

He saw Heaven and heard Gods voice speak to him. Deakin was coming home late one night from Parliament, to his house in South Yarra that was one block from Melbourne botanical gardens – it was just after he lost the election in April 1910 and he was feeling jaded and his nerves were on edge. It was then he heard a voice saying to him, in a pleasant, cheerful and a colloquial tone “Finish your job and turn in” Deakin said ” as if it had come by telegram or cable from afar, but from a living sender much better informed, of far wider outlook and deeper insight and higher authority than my own reflections supply”

Concerning events in Russia

The Russian Ruble has dropped by 50% to the US Dollar

This drop is mainly due to International Sanctions and the Oil price dropping from $107US to $52US in last 6 months. This is now starting to cause serious hardship inside Russia and the ramifications for 2015 are troubling. Certainly it will cause significant inflation and this is one reason why the Russian central bank has raised interest rates to 17% overnight.

About $100 Billion dollars have already left the country during 2014 seeking safer waters which has caused the central bank to tighten capital controls on the flow of money.

Devaluations of this size can cause runaway hyperinflation which is when local owners of Rubles buy up any fixed assets and trade-able goods before their paper money looses more value. This increases the velocity of money ( the speed the paper money changes hands) which further increases the price of goods. This is what happened in Germany leading up to the 2WW.

There are some concerning similarities to what happened leading up to the WW1 and WW2 when you consider the super powers arguing over Ukraine, 100 years from the conflict in the Balkans that started the First World War. Then consider that Japan went to war when the US put an oil embargo on Japan because of Japans expansionist actions in 1930’s.

Oil is again in the center of the issue and again embargo’s are being used to try and coerce Russia to back down over Ukraine.

There has even been some suggestion that the US administration wants a regime change in Russia and this explains Washington’s actions and rhetoric. It is clear that both the Russian President Putin and US President Obama don’t like each other and especially when Putin out maneuvered Obama in Syria. Could it be that Obama is playing a very risking game of Russian roulette?

The question is – why is the West so upset over Ukraine when Russia has such a long history in that region and share a border with the country. It is only natural that Russia will want to secure its borders and would not want NATO living so close. It is interesting to note that the current Kiev Government was supposedly setup by western powers, after deposing a pro Russian elected Ukrainian Government.

Lets be praying that sound heads prevail during these times as we maybe in store for some rocky oceans in the coming years.

Jihadists to Christians in Syrian city: convert to Islam, pay up or be killed

Syria, March 04, 2014: A Jihadist group in control of the northern Syrian city of Raqqa has given Christians a devastating ultimatum: convert to Islam, pay the jizya tax and abide by a list of restrictions, or else risk being killed.

In a statement posted online, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) said it would give Christians protection if they paid the tax and agreed to its conditions, adding:

“If they reject, they are subject to being legitimate targets, and nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword.”
