The Great Awakening Has Already Begun!?

Excerpt from “It Has Already Begun” by Andrew Wommack

I recently shared that the Lord spoke to me on March 5 during the worship service at The Encounter in Oklahoma City, where Lance Wallnau and I were speaking.

I was praising the Lord as I beheld the young people who were standing so strong in the Lord and preaching the true Gospel. I was encouraged about the future. 

Then the Lord spoke to me and said, “Some of the young people in this service will one day be telling the young people of their day about what it was like to be a part of the Third Great Awakening.”

I said, “You mean we are going to have a Third Great Awakening?”  

The Lord very clearly replied, “No, it’s not coming. It has already begun.” 

Wow! This overwhelmed me!  

The previous two Great Awakenings provided the motivation for the American Revolution and the end of slavery. It’s yet to be seen what this move of God will do, but I believe it will turn the tide of socialism and the “woke” culture and all the demonic assaults on this nation.

I’m excited and expectant that righteousness will once again exalt this nation (Prov. 14:34).  

I’ve been praying and laboring toward that my whole life. I’ve seen thousands changed by the power of God’s Word, but the evidence of ungodliness is all around us and seemingly getting worse. I’ve said for years that America is at a tipping point and could go in either direction. 

Second Chronicles 7:14 promises that the Lord would hear our prayers, forgive our sins, and heal our land, but that is only if His people would humble themselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways.

That’s a conditional promise and only the Lord knows if these conditions have been met.  

Therefore, I haven’t had any certainty that this nation will survive the onslaught of liberalism and immorality, which seems at an all-time high. I’ve even had many Christians tell me this is a sign of the end times and a fulfillment of Scripture; we need to just resign ourselves to America being a post-Christian nation.  I have always rejected that mentality.

Even if this is the end, I believe it is my Christian duty to oppose the devil on every front! He will not have my cooperation or silence.

So, I’ve been laboring on, doing what the Lord leads me to do. On an individual basis, I’m seeing more lives changed than ever before, and that encourages me. But on a national level, we seem to be going in the wrong direction. 

Then the Lord came to me saying, “No, the Third Great Awakening isn’t coming. It has already begun.” 

This has given me a certainty that I didn’t have before and encouraged me to increase my efforts, knowing that my labor is not in vain in the Lord! (1 Cor. 15:58)
