The reality of two governments on earth, one national and one spiritual has opened my eyes to see things I could not see. When the national government on earth is calling for a great awakening it is for the people of the nation to realize how they have been taken advantage of by their leaders or a system of control that has oppressed them. When people wake up to this reality they cast off the evil regime that has been over them. We see it in Brazil, we see it Iran, we see in various nations around the world. This is a national great awakening and aligns with what Psalm 13:3-4 says, “Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; Enlighten my eyes, Lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.”
The national awakening is taking place, people are “waking up” to truths that were once hidden from them and when they wake up they are passionate about taking back their country. We need national awakenings, but this is not the final awakening we need, this is the national awakening we need. For if we sleep the sleep of death, the enemy is rejoicing over us and thinking he has prevailed over us as a nation. But God is awakening people nationally to truth that is setting nations free. We need this awakening, but we can’t stop at the national awakening, for there is another awakening we need as well.
Paul prays for the church in Ephesus and says, “I pray, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.” (Ephesians 1:17-21).
We need a spiritual awakening as well, it is not enough to wake up nationally, we must wake up spiritually so we can know hope, glory and power that is in Christ. The spiritual great awakening is happening simultaneously with the national great awakening, that is why this is such a powerful move of God. It has started, but has not crested yet, but when it does, the whole world is going to be awakened both nationally and spiritually. Once awake the choice will be ours to stay awake or go back to the sleep of death. I see the majority of people staying awake and those who do will help build the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven, for once you are awake to the hope, glory and power of God, to the revelation of Jesus Christ, you don’t want to go back to sleep, for you see the harvest in front of you and you want to work! It’s a two fold great wakening, national and spiritual. Thank you Lord!!!
