“The Great Return and the Third Great Awakening!”
by Jon and Jolene Hamill
May 27, 2010
This Third Great Awakening is a Great Return, where multitudes will disengage from Jezebel’s table and return to the Table of the Lord.
For a decade, I (Jon) have been sharing prophetically about an “11-11” awakening that manifests the dream in God’s heart for our land. My Pilgrim forefathers cut covenant with the Lord on 11-11, 1620, consecrating the land and its government to “the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”
Jolene and I recently returned from the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, where Holy Spirit fell in a move of awakening on 11-11-09. God is confirming covenant. What a delight to experience the beginnings of a move of God I believe will progressively envelop our land! Just as Jesus prophesied of Lazarus in John 11:11, I believe He is now speaking to our nation: “America our friend has fallen asleep. But I go that I may awaken him from slumber!”
Fireball Confirms Awakening
A wild thing happened after the final evening we attended the IHOP student awakening. News reports showed videos of a gigantic fireball which shot across the skies of Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana. For Jolene and me, God was using very personal language to confirm that this awakening was indeed now at hand.
On November 10, 2005, the Elijah List posted a word of ours called Covenantal Awakening. In this word five years ago, we described a fireball over our home city of Frederick, Maryland, that confirmed a prophetic word on an emerging season of revival! We wrote: “In mid-October, Kim Clement prophesied there would be an ‘unusual occurrence’ on October 31, which would be followed by a four year season of harvest and the greatest move of the Spirit our nation has ever seen… Just after 9:00 p.m., while we were worshipping and praying, we experienced an ‘unusual occurrence.’ A few of the intercessors saw a huge fireball passing through the skies of Frederick! Television news reported that the fireball was actually a meteor, seen from Philadelphia to south of Washington DC…”
Bigger Than Finney
In this word, we also recounted a dream Jolene had about the significance of the coming move. We wrote: “Jolene woke up from a dream this morning repeating the words: ‘Bigger than Finney, bigger than Finney.’ Charles Finney was the primary catalyst of America’s Second Great Awakening. Perhaps the Lord is saying that what’s now at hand is even bigger than the Second Great Awakening, which Finney himself described as the greatest outpouring since the Book of Acts.”
I believe we have indeed crossed the threshold and are now in the beginning of this move. Prophetic statesman James Goll confirmed this in a prophetic encounter over Purim. James began to move his head from side to side as if he were reading a scroll. He then began to declare, “The Third Great Awakening has begun! The Third Great Awakening has begun! The Third Great Awakening has begun!”
I believe that God is giving clarity about this emerging awakening now so we can position ourselves to fully receive His move. As important as it is to understand the timing of this work, we must also understand God’s intent through it.
In September 2009, the Holy Spirit spoke to us very clearly about this coming awakening. He said, “This Third Great Awakening is a GREAT RETURN, where multitudes will disengage from Jezebel’s table and return to the Table of the Lord.”
