"The Tenderness of God's Love is Bringing Spiritual Springtime"

I know many in the Protestant and non-Catholic world viewed recent scandals in the Catholic Church as a consequence of God's wrath. Indeed, the judgment of God certainly did expose perverse and deeply entrenched sin among certain leaders in the Catholic Church. While this exposing of sin is not yet over, the Holy Spirit has also been speaking to me about a special visitation that is about to fall upon many in the Catholic Church.

As I have known the Lord, His judgment upon what is sinful is linked to the release of mercy upon the righteous. Even in my personal life, when the Lord judged areas that were wrong in me, He hemmed me in so He could release me spiritually. I can say like the Psalmist, "We went through fire and through water; yet Thou didst bring us out into a place of abundance" (Ps 66:12). When I consider the dealings of God in my life, I can sincerely say, "It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I may learn Thy statutes" (Ps 119:71).

On a larger scale, the Lord exposes, judges and destroys the work of the enemy so He can reveal awesome wonders of His grace among the righteous. Indeed, Christ came to do two basic things: "To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God" (Isa 61:2). The outcome of divine vengeance is "comfort [to] all who mourn . . . giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting" (vs. 2, 3).

Spiritual Springtime

Thus, what was a clear expression of God's anger toward certain Catholic priests was, at the same time, an act of mercy toward those oppressed by the sin of those in leadership. Additionally, those sincere Catholic leaders who have truly loved God are about to receive a visitation of mercy. This outpouring will bring healing and a unique sweetness of spirit among those Catholics who truly love the Lord. Indeed, the tenderness of God's love will bring a new spiritual beginning for many. Those who felt helpless and afflicted by sin in the church are about to enter a spiritual springtime.

"For He has brought low those who dwell on high, the unassailable city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He casts it to the dust. The foot will trample it, the feet of the afflicted, the steps of the helpless . . . Indeed, while following the way of Thy judgments, O Lord, we have waited for Thee eagerly; Thy name, even Thy memory, is the desire of our souls.

"At night my soul longs for Thee, indeed, my spirit within me seeks Thee diligently; for when the earth experiences Thy judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness" (see Isa 26:5-9).


Such has been the cry of a growing minority in the Catholic Church. God has heard and He is drawing near.


The Signature of This Revival: A Deep Love For Jesus

I do not think this move of God will fall upon the entire Catholic community; in my view, it will be limited to local churches in various cities. But where people are praying for healing, it will come. And it will be a true outpouring from the Holy Spirit that will touch thousands of congregations. Catholics will not cease being Catholic in a denominational sense, but the Lord will look past the doctrinal concerns many Protestant Christians have with Catholicism and, as the Spirit of God always does, He will see and respond to the cry of human hearts.

The centerpiece of this revival will not be signs or wonders; although there will be genuine miracles. Instead, the preeminent characteristic of this visitation will be a deep overflow of love for Jesus. God will raise up many among the Catholics whose lives will truly manifest the maturity and substance of Jesus Christ.

Many of these revived Catholic churches will be instrumental in reaching the poor and forgotten in the inner cities. Additionally, anointed Catholic priests will be accepted into many citywide church events that, in the past, were deemed off limits to both sides of the Christian divide. A new sense of unity, born of love for Jesus, will spread, even revitalizing churches that have no organic connection with the Catholic community.

Intercede For a Great Outpouring

I believe it is time to accept Christ's passion for all of His sheep, and to begin a focused prayer advance for the Holy Spirit to touch Catholics around the world. Surely this move of God will ignite Catholics from many nations. Yet, the Lord emphasized to me that this visitation would touch the Catholic Church in America in a unique way. As the passions of God are restored to His people, the Holy Spirit will use many fervent Catholics to change this nation. The impact will spread around the world.

As always, our call is to pray. Let us seek God, and join with those in Catholicism who are praying for a great, sweeping outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Let us also war against the sense of betrayal and confusion that seeks to imprison many Catholics, especially warring against discouragement in those in leadership positions.

The Lord said that if we would intercede for a spiritual springtime to fall and refresh Catholics, He would include us in it when it comes.

Prayer and Mercy

The Bible tells us that every word should be confirmed by two or three witnesses, and it should be presented publicly and to let the others judge. I know that many sincere Christians believe that God has shut the door on Catholicism. By way of reminder, the above witness is about prayer, not doctrine; it's about the mercies of God, not theology. Yet, we would like to hear your comments. Write us at comments@frangipane.org and tell us your thoughts, some of which we will post on a web page for others to read. We will not post your email address nor your full name.

A great shaking is occurring in the church and unscriptural divisions are all crumbling like houses of clay in an earthquake; God is rumbling through Christianity! What remains will be our devotion to Christ.
