Awaken announces the coming of Jesus Christ and deals with our journey together in preparing the way for His return. Host Blake Lorenz met Jesus 40 years ago and has been on one fantastic voyage with Jesus ever since. In each new episode, we will explore the wonders of Jesus’ teachings on His return, and how we can live a life of hope and love and joy as we apply the principles He has given us for this special season. Awaken is arising from our sleep, empowered by the Holy Spirit to go out every day to be the person God created us to be in the context of His mission to redeem and restore the world to His glory.
THE ONE NEW MAN OF JESUS
Today, God is uniting the Jews and Gentiles into one new man for the coming of the Messiah. I interviewed my good friend, Jonathan Feldstein who lives with his family in the Judean Hills. We discuss what it is like to live in Israel, what God is doing with Jews and Christians as we prepare for the coming of the Messiah...
What unites us and what are our biggest obstacles in us coming together...We engage in his calling of God and how we have come together in our faith as we fulfill God's calling on our lives. You will enjoy this lively dialogue between us as we discuss the world situation from two different perspectives, yet as one.
SMALL BEGINNINGS CAN BRING GLOBAL IMPACT
God loves humble beginnings as opposed to the world’s way of fame and fortune and attention. God is using small gatherings throughout Cuba and around the world to prepare the nations of the earth for the return of Jesus.
Jesus started with 12, grew to 120 on Pentecost, then spread His salvation through house meetings and small synagogues. Now over 2 billion people claim to follow Jesus.
The Holy Fire in Cuba tells the story of small beginnings that will shake the nations before Jesus returns. Are you called to be an end time messenger of this Holy Fire?
JESUS AND THE BREAKING OF THE CURSE OF BABEL
I had waited three years to preach this message in Cuba. The curse of Babel is expressing itself in the most evil and ugly of ways in the nations today bringing division, strife, hate, hatred and civil unrest within the nations.
God has shown us how to break this curse of Babel in the nations. I believe this should be done in every church and in every nation before Jesus returns. It can make the difference between being a sheep nation or a goat nation. Hear what we did in Cuba as I have done in other nations including the USA.
EXPERIENCING THE WEIGHT OF GOD’S GLORY
This is a personal experience I had in Las Tunas on Saturday morning. The weight of God’s glory fell upon me and kept crushing the inner division of my life out of me. It was a time of intimacy and cleansing of my inner being to restore God’s oneness within me.
I have seen this happen several times in my 40 years of ministry. In Zambia at the close of one of our crusades, the glory of God fell upon the entire church. All of us suddenly found ourselves lying on the floor of the church weeping and wailing before God for over 30 minutes. When we arose to our feet puddles of tears of glory were evident throughout the sanctuary.
THE HOLY FIRE OF JESUS SPREADS IN CUBA
The woman in the wheelchair crippled with arthritis began to prophesy as I had laid hands on her to be baptized in the Spirit. She said this Holy Fire would spread throughout Cuba. Before I left I was told it had spread to 28 churches in the Las Tunas District. We are contending with God that this will cover the entire island of Cuba.
We are believing God will take the lid off of every believer and church and city in Cuba. For all of the people to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. God is doing it. Listen to this story!
JESUS’S END TIME ANOINTING
In Luke 4 we are told Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit, led by the Spirit, empowered by the Spirit and anointed by the Spirit. If He needed all of that, how much more do we need?
Jesus has sent an end time anointing to prepare the way for his return. I first heard and received this anointing through Jack Hayford back in 1992. I have helped spread this anointing for thirty years now. I have seen thousands come into this mighty anointing.
On Sunday night in Las Tunas Jesus poured out this anointing upon His people. This anointing is for you!
