recent visit to the U.S.,
the Lord prompted me to begin memorizing Ephesians 2. I was struck by verses
2-3 that describes how we used to follow the ways of this world and live
gratifying the desires of our flesh. Before we were made alive with Christ we
lived like this, but now, by the grace of God through faith that is no longer
who we are.
With the rise of
hipster culture, there has been an increasing trend Ephesians 2:1-3As for you, you were dead in your
transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when
you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air,
the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the
cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we
were by nature deserving of wrath.
With the rise of hipster culture, there has been an increasing
trend toward healthy eating. Raw,
organic, and non-GMO foods are becoming more and more desired among a younger
generation that just seems to want to eat clean.
believe this outward trend is a prophetic sign of an inward cry from a
generation that is desperate for real, raw Christianity. A generation who have developed a
distaste for religion that has been diluted by the culture of the world.
of being content with a form of godliness that denies the actual power of God,
the Holy Spirit is releasing a hunger in peoples hearts to see the real power
of God manifested.
a craving that is growing in the hearts of Believers for holiness, not based on
old legalistic ideas, but on an awakening to the power of what the Cross has
actually done for them. Having been born again, faith is rising that we have

birthing a new breed. A breed of Believers who read the Word of God with a
faith that confirms their identity as co-heirs with Christ, and who hunger to
walk out that identity in practical and powerful ways.
this return to the raw, unfiltered message of the Gospel, accompanied by a
repentance from everything that has taken away from the simplicity of knowing
Christ and Him Crucified, there is a new level of glory being released.
who embrace the power that comes from clean, undefiled lives and who choose to
daily reckon themselves dead to sin, taking on the identity of the Pure One,
Jesus, are about to see the raw message of the power of the Cross and
resurrection confirmed with unprecedented signs, wonders and miracles.
knowledge, prophecy and creative miracles that cause the world to take notice
are going to give these preachers of righteousness new platforms to proclaim
the message of salvation. The Lord showed me a vision as I wrote this of nets

groaning, waiting for Believers to manifest Christ. They want to know the real
Jesus who transforms lives.

greatness of the power of God that He wants to manifest through them.
