BUT...as you read through Todd's word...you'll notice that with all that has already happened in past revivals in history, we've seen nothing yet!
Now that is something to press into and look forward to. Be encouraged as Todd shares four aspects that he says will happen in this upcoming revival. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"And the inhabitant shall not say I am sick." (Isa. 33:24)
I believe that this verse is speaking of a time in the Church where there will be no sickness or disease just like when Israel came up out of Egypt in Ps. 105:37 and none were feeble. Think about it...more than three million people! Kathryn Kuhlman prophesied in her day that there would be a day in the Church where the Church would say I am not sick. Many others have prophesied a great healing revival including John G. Lake. Through his ministry, it was reported that Spokane was the healthiest city where over 100,000 healings and miracles were documented.
God has shown me many things into the coming healing revival in Canada and the North American Church. I want to share with you today four aspects of what I believe will happen in this revival.
In the beginning in the garden of Eden, there was no sin, sickness, disease or death. When sin entered the world, then came sickness, disease and death. Sin opens the door for sickness and disease. Much sickness today is rooted in control, bitterness, envy, jealousy and unforgiveness in a person's life.
Two things that I see happening are—as people who are in bondage to sickness and disease repent of their willful sin, they will be healed. I've also seen that as the Church repents of its corruption and worldly ways, healing would take place supernaturally without the laying on of hands. As repentance and the revival of righteousness sweeps through the Church, so will healings and miracles.
2. Saints Revival
God is going to do away with a clergy/layman "mentality" and raise up the saints in great works of His power. Not just the leaders, the anointed man, pastor or evangelist, but the saints will begin to preach the Gospel and heal the sick.
Acts 6:1-7 reports that the Apostles called out seven men full of good reputation and the Holy Spirit. They laid their hands on them then verse 7 reports the number of the disciples increased greatly. We all know about Stephen full of faith and power doing signs, but who were the rest (vs. 5)?
We never hear of them again or their works of power. I believe they flowed in an anointing just like Stephen. God is going to use the Church deacons, business men, cashiers and housewives, including children, to work His great power. "Nobodies" as it were; people we don't know just like those chosen by the apostles...people like Stephen.
3. Childrens Ministry
I have seen a great move of healings and miracles by the hands of children. I had a vision of an 8-year-old boy with a Bible in his hand, preaching with fire and boldness to thousands. Through the Word of the Lord, he preached and the sick were recovering in there seats. I see children being used by the spoken Word and faith to grow limbs, and I see them working creative miracles.
Jesus said in Matt. 19:14, "Let the little children come to Me, do not forbid them, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven." We know that the Kingdom isn't in Word only, but in power, and Jesus driving out spirits by the Spirit of God said that the Kingdom is upon you. Children are going to move in the power of the Kingdom driving out spirits, healing the sick, because the Kingdom is theirs.
4. Last Day Anointing
I have seen a glimpse of the anointing that will be on the last day Church. We think the book of Acts was glorious, but the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former. We are going out with a bigger bang than we came in. Rev. 11:1-6 describes the two witnesses moving in great power like Elijah and Moses. I believe that this is not two people, but the end time Church operating in the spirit and power of Elijah and Moses.
In the Midst of the Seven Lampstands
Rev 11:4 says the two witnesses are the two lampstands. Where was Jesus standing in Rev. 1...but in the midst of the seven lampstands which were the Church. Luke 1 prophesies John the baptist in the spirit and power of Elijah at the first coming of Jesus. Some even thought he was Elijah. In Matt. 17 on the mount of transfiguration, the Father used Moses and Elijah as a sign of the law and the prophets—to show that Jesus was who He said he was.
I believe as we near the second coming, God will again confirm the Church as His voice by bringing the spirit and power of Moses and Elijah upon His army. I have seen the army of God moving in creative anointing through the spoken word, just like at the word of Elijah the heavens were opened (1 Kings 17:1).
Power Over Natural Elements
Joshua spoke and the sun stood still. Moses turned water to blood. I see the Church having the same power over the natural elements, even as Jesus had the winds and the sea obey him. This also will happen to us, and we will move into a wonder ministry fulfilling the rest of Joel 2.
Speaking to Limbs
Through the Church, God will show wonders in the heavens and the earth. We will speak to limbs like Jesus did when He said stretch forth your hand and it will happen. The wonders we will do will be like in the day of Elijah and Moses—to stop the world from its busyness to see the glory of God. I don't just see healings and miracles, but signs and wonders of great proportion stopping the busyness of life as the glory cloud literally comes down upon the Church like with Moses.
At the end of Rev. 11:6, concerning the two witnesses, says that they could do their signs as often as they desired...that's power. Pray it in. Let's believe God to confirm His Word and trust us with the last day anointing we'll need for last day harvest. The God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses, our forefathers, will once again begin to show up in the Church like He visited in Old Testament times when He visited His people. Think about it!
