Many think that California is beyond saving and have spoken against it in many ways...but I appreciate words like this from prophetic voices that say the opposite and speak encouraging words of what God IS going to do in the midst of darkness seen over regions.
If you live in California or have been interceding for its full destiny to come forth...you will want to read this word by Westley, and please pass it on to those you know who will be encouraged by this word for California. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

In the beginning of October, the Lord brought me into several encounters and visions concerning California. As I meditated on these, the Lord brought them all together for me into a 3-part prophetic word: "Closing the Curtain, the Firestorms, and the Wave of the Future."
Part 1: Closing the Curtain
In the spirit, I saw a curtain that went from the heavens to the ground and stretched from the northern most point of California to the southern most point of California. None of the bordering states could see into California as if the curtain was some type of "privacy curtain" protecting California. I knew that it was not just the bordering states that were unable to see California, but all of the states. California was now hidden from the rest of America.
When I asked the Lord what is happening He said, "California is changing." In these words were various understandings. The first was like the curtain you use in a fitting room. California was changing its clothing and the curtain was hiding its nakedness, much like Adam and Eve in Genesis 3. Rather than exposing California, the Lord is hiding California from being scorned, embarrassed or judged for its nakedness.
Another understanding was that this heavenly curtain was a cocoon which California was being put inside of, as it goes through a transformation or metamorphosis. Many people emphasize the darkness they see in California. But like the woman in Song of Solomon when she refers to herself as being "dark yet lovely"—her beloved responds to her with all the beauty he sees in her and never once acknowledged her "darkness". God is seeing the beauty in California just like this! Out of this cocoon will come a beautiful Monarch butterfly!
Sub-contextually California was being separated from the rest of the states. This separation embodied the Hosea 2:14 verse: "But once she has nothing, I'll be able to get through to her. I'll entice her and lead her out into the wilderness where we can be alone, and I'll speak right to her heart and try to win her back" (The Voice Translation). God is not done with California. He has not given up on her.
Part 2: The Firestorms
What I saw in this next part of the vision was not literal, but spiritual. I was brought behind the curtain where I could see all of California from an aerial view. From within there was a sense of calm. The curtain had a majestic nature about it that caused it to appear more like a waterfall cascading from the heavens instead of one, giant piece of cloth. It had a shine to it that was tangible. The only way I could describe it would be to say it looked like oil with gold flakes inside of it. It was the glory of God.
From San Diego to the most northern parts, I saw spiritual fires burning. These were not wild or uncontrollable fires by any means, but very much controlled. As I got closer to the fires, I saw that they were not fires at all, but actual homes. I asked the Lord why these homes looked like fires from above, to which He replied, "This is the firestorm I am sending to California. There will be groups of 'burning ones' that will gather in homes all across California and I will consume them because I am a consuming fire. These burning homes will shine bright and men will come to them in darkness for refuge."
"For He is like a fierce fire that consumes everything." (Hebrews 12:29, The Voice Translation)
From what the Lord was saying, I understood He was explaining that as the times in California become more challenging for those of Christian faith, there will be places of sanctuary and presence. These homes will be marked as such. This is similar to times past when Christianity was outlawed and sailors changed the design of their anchors by adding a crossbar, creating a cross out of the anchor. This was a symbol of hope to those who looked for a light in the midst of troubling times. These houses of fire will also be that sign of hope.
Part 3: The Wave of the Future
While participating on a Facebook broadcast with a friend, I went into a vision. Off the shores of Orange County, California I saw a large wave begin to form. It was quickly growing massive momentum as it approached the beach. This wave was of epic proportion. Though I don't surf, I imagined it to be a surfer's dream, something that would be heard about in bonfire stories but never seen. When the wave came crashing down on the beach, people walked out of the wave.
For no other imaginable reason other than the Lord, this made me think of the baptisms that would take place during the Jesus People Movement with Lonnie Frisbee. I heard the Lord say, "These are My new 'Jesus People.' They will carry an anointing similar to Lonnie, they are your modern-day hippies. Your Millennials are My Jesus People."
Much of the Church, especially prior to Lonnie Frisbee, looked at the hippie culture as a band of misfits and rebels. Likewise, the Church is baffled by this Millennial generation, but God has a plan for them. God is choosing this generation to breathe on and they will be His Jesus People.
"For I know the plans I have for you," says the Eternal, "plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope— never forget that." (Jeremiah 29:11) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
