Anthony Medina: "I Am Calling for a New Society of Burning Hearts"


Anthony Medina
Jan 8, 2023

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve Shultz"Are you burning?" This is a question the Lord repeatedly asked Anthony Medina last year.

God wants us to burn for Him more and more...and this also means boldly standing against the persecution we are facing in our nation.

Just read this word of the Lord through Anthony:

"I am calling for a new society of burning hearts. This one will not be relegated to a university, but it will be spread across the land. These are groups of people who have not bowed to the pressure of ridicule or the threats of persecution. They have fixed their eyes on the Son, earnestly sought the Spirit, and allowed the Father to love them to deep wholeness. These societies will stand up in the face of mounting external pressure to bring transformation to cities and nations..."

Steve ShultzThis is how we will see transformation in our communities...standing and burning together for the Lord.

Read the rest of Anthony's word to find out about the burning societies God is calling us to be. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"I Am Calling for a New Society of Burning Hearts"

Anthony Medina, Cedar Hill, TX


"Then God said, 'Behold, I am going to make a covenant. Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the LORD, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.'" (Exodus 34:10 NASB)

Are You Burning?

On June 28, 2022, as I walked into the Trinity Church for our weekly Tuesday night prayer meeting, I heard the Lord repeatedly ask me, "Are you burning?"

I know where that phrase came from originally. It was from a society of burning hearts called the "Holy Club," founded in Oxford, England in the early 1700s. They were given the name by fellow students who mocked their devotion to the Lord. I had learned somewhere that they would greet each other at every meeting by looking one another in the eyes and asking this question: "ARE YOU BURNING?" Men like John and Charles Wesley, John Gambold, George Whitefield and others were part of this small group of burning ones.

During the whole prayer meeting, I was on my face with an intense burning in my chest. I could both see and hear the words "Are you burning?" as I literally lay there burning. Toward the end of the meeting, Holy Spirit began to say:

"I am calling for a new society of burning hearts. This one will not be relegated to a university, but it will be spread across the land. These are groups of people who have not bowed to the pressure of ridicule or the threats of persecution. They have fixed their eyes on the Son, earnestly sought the Spirit, and allowed the Father to love them to deep wholeness. These societies will stand up in the face of mounting external pressure to bring transformation to cities and nations. The burning hearts society of old included the least likely, but I made them burn and used them to birth defining moments and movements. I desire burning hearts 2.0."

Burning Hearts 2.0

He continued by showing me that the burning hearts 2.0 societies will be marked by a few things:

Family: They will live as a family, relate as a family, and love as a family. They will not see or use each other as commodities, but will love and honor as family does. Look for strong individuals suddenly coming together to form family collectives of burning hearts.

Diversity: These new societies of burning hearts will be gender, age, denomination/stream, and race diverse. They will not be relegated to "one kind" of people but will be "multi-groups" that will move in multiplied power because of their inclusivity.

Wisdom: I saw two angels standing in front of me. One had the word "Righteousness" written on its chest and the other had "Justice." They both held the string of a plumb line. The weight of the plumb line had the word "Words" written on it, and the line of the plumb line was fastened to the word "Wisdom."

When I asked the Lord what I was seeing, He told me that these burning hearts would realign things with words full of righteousness and justice, but they would be grounded in the wisdom of Heaven. He said, "These groups will move in great wisdom because of where they will go and what they will be called to do. They'll walk in power, but wisdom will bring them through doors I open that power can't."

How Do You Build These Societies?

He then asked me a question: "How do you build these societies?" I did not know the answer, so I simply asked Him the same question. His responded by showing me these keys:

1. You get honest. I saw that these men and women were honest with each other, but most importantly with the Lord. No more hiding discord, resentment, or disagreements. This collective of burning hearts will only thrive if honesty with the Lord and one another is paramount.

"[F]or we intend to do what is right and we are totally open both to the Lord's inspection and to man's." (2 Corinthians 8:21 TPT)

2. You get desperate. Forget the external circumstances and place great desperation in the One whose eyes burn like fire. What captures your gaze most? These members of the collective have dealt with their idols and lesser lovers, fixing their gaze on Jesus fully. (Photo via Unsplash)

"And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God." (Revelation 7:11 ESV)

3. You have to be willing. One must always be willing to do the hard thing, be obedient on command, and say yes when it hurts. This collective of men and women are willing to do for the Lord what many will not, even to the point of death.

"For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." (Philippians 2:13)
