Get Ready For Suddenly

A few years ago the Lord spoke to me and said: “Son GET READY FOR SUDDENLY.” The suddenly of God seems to be something we are hearing quite a bit about these days. Prophetically God is speaking through many vessels about His suddenlies.


“And even as things are changing all around you, you will notice that it will just seem like a snap of a finger, and things will suddenly change… And lo and behold you won’t know where it came from or how it came, but all of a sudden, YOU’RE GOING TO BE IN YOUR DESTINY! For this year suddenly happens to you! And all of a sudden you’re going to realize that YOUR DESTINY HAS COME UPON YOU.” Prophesied By Michael Fram


“This is the year that leaders who have opposed Me are going to suddenly die.” Prophesied By Cindy Jacobs


“Things that now look impossible and unchangeable will suddenly turn around.” Prophesied By Kenneth Copeland


There are even new revelations coming to me from familiar Scriptures that God has been showing me regarding suddenly:


“Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold He is coming, says the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:1 NASB


“I declared the former things long ago and they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted and they came to pass. Isaiah 48:3 NASB


Acts 3:21 refers to the time we are currently living in. A period called: “The Restoration Of All Things”. This is the time just before the Lord’s return. That is why we are seeing the strong emphasis by the Spirit of God that we are seeing on the Apostolic and Prophetic offices that we are seeing in our day. But they are not the only things being restored to ‘The Church’. The Suddenlies of God are also being restored.


There are 3 occurrences in the Book of Acts where it says that God moved Suddenly. If we look at these 3 occurrences I believe there are some conclusions we can draw about what happens when God moves Suddenly.


“And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2 NASB


“And it came about that as he journeyed, he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.” Acts 9:3 NASB


“And suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains were unfastened.” Acts 16:26 NASB


Here are the 3 common things we see as we examine these 3 occasions where God moved Suddenly:


  1. When God Moved Suddenly It Was Surprising.
  2. When God Moved Suddenly It Was Supernatural.
  3. When God Moved Suddenly It Was Sovereign.


  • In all 3 occasions…they were Surprised.
    • The word for Suddenly in the Greek in all 3 texts, besides suddenly also means: Unexpected or Unaware.
    • In all 3 texts they were not expecting what occurred to occur.
    • A great Modern Day example would be the cessationist theologian, Dr. Jack Deere, who taught the cessation doctrine at Dallas Theological Seminary until as he wrote in his book he was: “Surprised By The Power Of the Spirit”.
  • In all 3 occasions…God moved Supernaturally.
    • On the Day of Pentecost: Rushing Mighty Wind, Cloven Tongues of Fire, First Manifestation of Tongues.
    • Paul on the road to Damascus: Light from Heaven, Voice from Heaven, No one else was blind but Paul.
    • The Philippian Jail: The Earthquake, Everyone’s chains fall off, Nobody tries to escape.
  • In all 3 occasions…God moved Sovereignly.
    • It seems that this is a lost doctrine by many in our day.
    • God’s supreme rule and authority in Heaven, on earth, and in hell, to do what He wants, when He wants, to whomever He wants, because He is God.
    • On the Day of Pentecost: God moved when he wanted to, not when they wanted Him to. They had already waited in the upper room for ten days.
    • Paul on the road to Damascus: God alone decided to manifest Himself to Paul. Paul had nothing to do with it.
    • The Philippian Jail: God being pleased by Paul and Silas’ sacrifice of praise moved sovereignly.


If God moved Suddenly in the Book of Acts, we should expect Him to move Suddenly in our day as well. Get ready for God: to SURPRISE you, by moving SUPERNATURALLY, in His SOVEREIGNTY once again, with greater magnitude than before…GET READY FOR SUDDENLY!


The Next Phase Of The Apostolic Restoration

Recently while Apostle Jim Becton was up visiting NJ for my Apostolic Commissioning, we were discussing where the Apostolic Restoration has been, and where it is going. Such great progress has been made since the Mid to Late 90’s to now in what many have called “The New Apostolic Reformation”. God has mightily used men like C. Peter Wagner, David Cannistraci, Jonas Clark, Bill Hamon, Hector Torres, John Eckhardt, Che Ahn and others.


The focus of this move of restoration was the restoration of the function, title and importance of the Office of the Apostle. The fact that it, like all of the other four Ascension Gift Ministries; were given UNTIL…Ephesians chapter 4. It focused largely on the fact that the Apostle was part of the Foundation of the Church (along with the Prophet) (Ephesians 2:20); and if the foundation be destroyed…what hope is there for the people of God (Psalm 11:3).


The final focus has been the understanding from 1 Corinthians 12:28 where the Greek uses the word PROTON for the English word First, where it says that God hath set in the church first Apostles. This word Proton carries several meanings including: First in time or place in any succession of things or people, and First in rank, influence or honor. Chief. Principal. This is where the Restoration of the Apostolic has been and where we have come to where most have a general understanding and acceptance.


It is important for us to understand that revelation and knowledge are progressive in nature…we don’t get it all at once. The Bible is clear line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little. But where is it going now? That as they say is the $64,000.00 question! This is where I believe we are currently on the cutting edge of what God is doing next in this Apostolic Restoration.


We are now progressing beyond the Revelation of the Apostolic that really began in the 90’s and shifting or evolving naturally supernaturally (or organically) into the Father/Son order. We have begun to grasp and get an understanding that the Previous Restoration of the Gift/Office of the Apostle has been missing this extremely important and key component. Many all over the Body of Christ are beginning to have Malachi 4: 5 & 6 come alive within them knowing that the hearts of the Fathers MUST be turned towards the Sons…so in turn the hearts of the Sons can be turned in response back to the Fathers.


In the previous generation there has been a great emphasis on building and establishing “My Ministry” with little or no thought for the Next Generation that is up and coming. Thank God this is changing in our day. There is a two-fold thrust of this New Apostolic Paradigm that is currently being revealed.


The first thrust of this New Apostolic Paradigm of the Father/Son Order is Vertical. This is up and down. This is where Fathers speak into the lives of Sons. This is a multi-generational lineage that is meant to be perpetuated. All through the Old Testament we see: Abraham, Isaac & Jacob. In Stephen’s defense in the Book of Acts he states about the covenant of circumcision that God gave it to Abraham, who gave it to Isaac, who gave it to Jacob, who gave it to the 12 Patriarchs; which shows four generations. When Paul was writing to his Son Timothy he said, commit thou to faithful men, who in turn will be able to teach others also. So this is also four generations; Paul, Timothy, Those Timothy taught and those that they could teach also.


This is the vertical thrust of the Father/Son order. From Father to Son, From Father to Son, From Father to Son. In this there is always a middle generation like Isaac or Timothy who are the middle generation who are both Sons to their Fathers, and Fathers to those Sons that they are pouring into. The heartbeat now becomes: I must pour into the next generation! I must teach them what I have learned! I must help them avoid some of the blunders and mistakes I have made. The greatest expression of the heart of a Father that I have ever heard is: “Son, my ceiling is your floor!” In other words…you will start where I end because you have the benefit of my experience.


The second thrust of this New Apostolic Paradigm of the Father/Son Order is horizontal. This is across. There was some thought of this in the previous Restoration Move some were referred to as Horizontal Apostles…meaning they didn’t have a Network under them, but had the ability to gather folks together. They are equipped with a gathering anointing. This thought is carried to another level in this current move.


It is not just an anointing to gather folks together, but this is a gathering together of Spiritual Fathers whose heart it is to pour into the next generation. In this Horizontal Thrust of this Apostolic Restoration it is about gathering Fathers Nationally and Regionally. As Fathers become aligned, iron will sharpen iron and the thrust will get stronger. The end result of this Horizontal alignment will be many Sons coming to glory!



A Very Confirming Word For Apostles In This Season.

The Flaming Herald

“There was a man sent from God, whose name was John” (Jn. 1:6).

Like an ambassador representing the heavenly government and the order of the kingdom, John the Baptist was a man sent by God. No man withstood him for when he stood to preach in the wilderness he had a letter of authorization to be there. The letter represented authorization from the Lord. No man could challenge his right to be there in that nation at that set time. This is so with every man’s commission.

“Separate unto Me Saul and Barnabas for the work whereunto I have called them” (Acts 13:2).

“So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit…” (Acts 13:4)

Saul and Barnabas were separated for a specific work and sent out by the Holy Spirit. A true separation does not bring division. A separation done under the direction and authority of the Lord brings multiplied blessing to the…
