Tomorrow is a "hinge" for history. (MonicaVolpin)

Prophet Cindy Jacobs is on the ground in Germany to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. She took some time to talk with Charisma News about what is going on both in country and the spiritual realm.

What is happening on the ground right now?

It's very exciting. There's great anticipation. This word "Reformation" is on people's lips. You know, to some of the people actually that aren't Lutheran, they may not catch the significance in some of the cities, but the church people, you know like the young evangelists ... they are just on fire for to see their nations reformed.

I say the two words people are saying are "revival" and "reformation." We need to have revival. And we also need to make sure our societies are reformed. I think that what has started here is going to go around the world this time not as a reformation of the church but a reformation of our nations. It's so very exciting to see these young people, they're out on the streets, witnessing. This one No Limits group, they have been going out by the hundreds, teenagers going out into the streets and seeing incredible miracles. Fifteen-year-olds are praying for blind people, and their eyes are opening. Just really outstanding miracles. This is very encouraging here in Germany, and it's going to be a groundswell we believe will happen.

I had prophesied when I was here in Berlin in 2007 that some things were coming, I said, "You need to pray right now because terrorism that will try to come to Germany, Islamification of Germany, the economy will shake." And of course at that time, there weren't the Syrian refugees, many people from Iran that have come here and other places. Nor had the 2008 economic crisis struck, so they really take that word seriously, many of the leaders, and they did pray, and what's exciting is now the economy of Germany is very, very strong. And the churches are really ministering to the refugees that came from the Middle East, different parts of the Middle East, and they're seeing quite a number of salvations and baptisms, and we know that God is really doing great things.

We hear some reports that refugees are only "converting" to be granted asylum. Is that really the case?

We asked about that today, and what they say is that in order to receive that status, they have to go through three months of discipleship. Even if they think they're coming just to get a status, after three months of being taught of the Lord, they know for sure they're saved.

What is the significance of the number 500?

I believe after all that time that it is like a hallmark, it's like the Lord saying He is ready to bring a massive awakening worldwide. Many times in history are just times of celebration, but I've talked to many, many leaders and prophetic voices, as well, around the globe, and their consensus is it's the hinge of history. There's a real consensus that even as Martin Luther putting the thesis on the door was not uncommon just for theological debate, but it literally was a shot heard around the world, much to Luther's surprise and persecution. But now God is going to use many many to raise up, to change whole governmental structures, and that many, many will be touched in our societies. We're excited about that, because it must be done. We're called to make disciples of nations, and we haven't done a very good job of that.

How are the Protestant Church and Catholic Church reuniting after 500 years?

We know there has been some movement towards that, where I believe, I don't know when it happened, but I had heard that the pope apologized for what happened with Luther, to the Lutherans. ... I was talking to somebody about that today. I believe that we're in a John 17 movement, and in fact, as I was talking to a lot of leaders today here in Berlin, there's all these Christian leaders who are just coming around this great event, coming up tomorrow.

I believe we're going to see the greatest move of working together for world evangelization we have ever seen to date. There's a great awakening of nations that will impact not only America, but many many nations. It's a harvest of the Lord. It's pretty remarkable what we're saying. And also in the Middle East, we're seeing that, but I believe that Germany as a team is going to bring great change to the church and German oaks are going to be set on fire. They call themselves the German oaks, they're going to be set on fire for the Lord in a great way, and in many ways impact the whole earth just like Luther did. [And lead the world] back to the Word of God, back to the biblical worldview, and it's going to shake young and old.

What spiritual battles are happening in Germany between secularists and believers?

We know that it seems like Sharia laws are getting more and more accepted and the pluralism even here in Germany, it's said that Islam is just the same as any other denomination, which we know is not true. And the people are greatly concerned about that.

I can really see in many ways, I'm not saying people that believe that are the antichrist, but it is a spirit of antichrist that's trying to come across the earth. ... There's going to be great persecution for us who say that Jesus is the only way. And of course we're seeing that in America as well, but I believe that the Bible says every knee shall bow. And I believe that we have just begun to see the awakening, the revival.

We've all read about revival, we've seen some awakening, we've seen some historical moves of God. I've been privileged to be part of it in different nations, but nothing like what we're getting ready to see. I believe the greatest generation of young people are rising up that are going to be on fire for the Lord.

There's been a movement here called the Holy Revolutionaries, and they just have gone out to the streets and prayed and prayerwalking. We see some things that are greatly disturbing in Europe, but in the middle of that, there's many reformers rising up. There's all these reformation movements happening.

What are you sensing in your spirit about this event?

I will say that we can expect to see, whether it's visible or not, exactly this Great Awakening. I believe that tomorrow, as I said earlier, is a hinge, tomorrow is a time where people are going to start rising up in their governments. There are going to be surprise elections around the world, where people are going to get into office, even what we've seen in the U.S., where leaders are going to rise, and they're going to start making incredible godly decisions, and those who don't are going to be shifted out of office.

It's going to be a time of great clashing. It's going to be a time of great governmental shaking. There's still more shaking to take place. I know we've had some terrible things happen, which I am not happy about, but we're going to see more and more, from things shaking, nation rising up against nation. But the end result of this, even though Satan is bringing many of these things, God will work it for good.

I mean, I believe, for instance, that God is hardening the heart of Kim Jong Un so that he won't be able to stay in office anymore. I believe God is hardening his heart just like Pharaoh; He hardened Pharaoh's heart. That man, that dictator is going to come down, and God has a plan, and He's not going to let him just stay in office. Somehow, He's going to bring him down.

I remember when God gave me a prophecy that Saddam Hussein would not only be taken out of office, the cup of judgment was full for him, but he would be brought before a war crimes tribunal, and he would be executed. I pray he's saved, I mean we want Kim Jong Un to be saved, but it happened. Kim Jong Un is not going to be able to stay. It's his time for God to judge him, and he will be pulled down. It's a great time of shaking, and tomorrow is a demarcation day for that.

... Expect a great acceleration of the gospel, a great shaking, even in 2018, great contrast, light and dark, we're going to see it. We will protest against the enemy in a great way in 2018. The Lord told me that there is going to be a movement that is going to happen where prodigals start coming home. We're going to see the power of the Holy Spirit pour out. We've just seen a trickle of miracles, but we're getting ready to see what we have just dreamed.

I have a vision of God's hand on the switch in heaven, of this great move of God, and tomorrow's going to be one of those where he pulls the switch, and we're going to start seeing here and there and all over the U.S. and different places as well, in our schools, we're going to start seeing a mighty, mighty flowing of the power of God in unusual places. It's a time of clashing of kingdoms, but it's a time of great, great victory and awakening.

    • FOR THE CHURCH IN YORUBALAND
      The word of the Lord came to me expressly on the 16th July 2000 saying:


      "Except the church in Yoruba land returns back to its first love of Missions and Evangelism, the fate of Liberia and Sierra Leone will befall Yoruba land, beginning from Abeokuta".

    • Are You Ready for the Storm?
      A storm is coming. The torrential rains shall fall. The waters shall rise. The floods shall sweep away all wood, hay and stubble. The violent winds will blow away all that was built irresponsibly. (Alois_Wonaschuetz)

      A storm is coming. The torrential rains shall fall. The waters shall rise. The floods shall sweep away all wood, hay and stubble. The violent winds will blow away all that was built irresponsibly.

      Are you building your house on the rock or on the sand?

      "Whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded a rock. And every one who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them will be likened to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it fell. And its fall was great " (Matt. 7:24-27).

      "What sayings of Mine" is Jesus specifically referring to in these passages? Reading in context, Jesus began a lengthy teaching from Matthew 5-7 and the central theme of it seems to be the character of the heart of man—from the Beatitudes, to loving our enemies, to having the right motives in giving, praying and fasting. Then He goes on to teach them about the Father's care for them and not worrying but seeking first the kingdom of God. Finally, Jesus comes to the end of that teaching and speaks about hypocrisy and righteous judgment and reverting back to heart matters followed by a warning of false prophets and those who call Him Lord but don't do His will. This entire teaching is traditionally known as the Sermon on the Mount, and it ends with the parable of the wise and foolish builders.

      This was one of Jesus' first and most foundational teachings. It set the tone for His public ministry. As ministers that is important for us to know. We must emphasize what Jesus emphasized. These sayings prepared the people and His disciples for what was to come. Herein we find the standard of Jesus' life and ministry for all He did and taught. The heart must be right or nothing else will be right. If the heart is not right people won't do what He says. We must build our lives on Jesus' words, especially these first words of the first lengthy sermon He preached.

      Storms Test the Strength of the Foundation

      Jesus was the Master Builder. When it comes to building people, He is our primary example and pattern. The apostle Paul refers to God's people as God's field and God's building (1 Cor. 3:9), and he calls all ministers his fellow laborers who plant and water the field, and who are to build on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

      The image of the people as a building under construction is very interesting because it highlights the responsibility of ministers to be faithful in how they build. Ministers are like building contractors who are only permitted to build on the prescribed foundation (see 1 Cor. 3:12-15). There are both wise builders and foolish builders (Matt. 7:24-27). To build on the foundation a building of durable material (gold, silver and precious stones) means not only to teach sound doctrine but even more importantly, to be a godly example and live a sanctified life of fidelity to the truth, thus helping to mature the saints. Ministers and especially pastors/shepherds, because they live with the people, teach more by their life example perhaps than anything else.

      On the other hand, to build with perishable material (wood, hay, and stubble) is to provide inadequate or unsound teaching or to compromise the truth by living a lifestyle that contradicts or falls short of modeling it. It is the quality of every builder's work and not the quantity, as seems to be much of the focus today, that shall be tested by fire, for which every builder shall give account to the Lord.

      In Jesus' parable (Matt. 7:24-27) He uses a storm, signifying the pressures, hardships and trials of life, as well as the persecutions we will suffer for the gospel, as a measuring gauge for how solid our foundation is. And what is our foundation based upon? Jesus taught us that it is based upon doing His sayings. Obedience is the issue. ""Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven" (Matt. 7:21). Obedience, not lip service, is what God requires.

      Have you ever thought about what gives us the strength and fuel to obey God? Why are some people obedient and some are not? Why are some doers of the Word and some are not? Why do some people stay faithful to God and remain true while others do not? Why do some start this Christian race but never finish? What is it that causes us to endure to the end (Matt. 24:13)?

      It is the fear of the Lord. Obedience to the Lord is not only proof of your love for Him (John 14:21), but also of your fear of Him. There's been an emphasis on love, although we've fallen short of the full counsel of God in that area, too, but there has not been nearly as much of an emphasis on the fear of the Lord. It takes both of them to produce a strong constitution in your Christian life. Notice in the following two different translations how the love of obedience in Jesus was rooted in the fear of the Lord. They are identical. Or a better way to say it would be that the manifestation of the fear of the Lord is obedience to His Word and His sayings/commandments.

      "His delight is in the fear of the Lord" (Isa. 11:3a, NKJV).

      "He will delight in obeying the Lord" (Isa. 11:3a, NLT).

      I love this verse of Scripture. It feeds and fuels the fear of the Lord in me and the delight to obey Him. This is our sure foundation. Since our obedience is the manifestation of the fear of the Lord in our lives, and since that is the difference between building your house on the rock or on the sand, we then could say that the fear of the Lord is what builds a strong foundation for our houses, which represent our lives. The fear of the Lord produces durable materials in our lives that will strengthen us to stand even in the midst of the storms. Can you see that?

      A house is built by wisdom, and the fear of the Lord is the beginning or the foundation of wisdom/knowledge. Once again, a house represents our lives, homes, families.

      "Through [skillful and godly] wisdom a house [a life, a home, a family] is built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation]" (Prov. 24:3, AMP).

      "Wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord" (Prov. 1:7a, CEB).

      "Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge" (Prov. 1:7a, NLT).

      If we build our lives and homes on the true wisdom and knowledge of God that comes from the foundation of the fear of the Lord, we need not fear the storm, because we will stand.

      Paul's Great Desire

      One of the apostle Paul's greatest burdens was this very thing: that the people He ministered to would stand firm in their faith and remain obedient to God even in the midst of the troubles and persecutions of his day. Other New Testament writers shared the same burden.

      Paul's great desire was that the people he taught would not falter under pressure, lest his work be useless or his labor be in vain. Notice his great concern for the Thessalonian saints (1 Thess. 3:1-9). He had warned them of the troubles that would soon come. In his farewell speech to the Ephesian elders, he warned them of the same troubles (Acts 20:25-31). To the Galatians and the Hebrews he did the same, warning them not to turn back to the Law. He was preparing them for the storm and the persecution they would receive from preaching the cross and paying the price to follow Jesus. Warnings are such a large part of the Scriptural admonition that Paul and the other New Testament writers gave to the churches. Today there is a glaring absence of these warnings in our preaching.

      Here are just some I found in the New Testament: Matthew 7:15, 10:17, 24:4-5, 24:11-13, 24:24; Mark 12:38-40; Luke 12:1, 15; Acts 20:29-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10:12, 11:3; Galatians 6:7; Ephesians 5:6, Philippians 3:2, 18; Colossians 1:28, 2:8; 1 Timothy 4:16; Hebrews 2:1-3, 4:1; 2 Peter 1:10, 3:17.

      Fellow minister and preacher, how well are you preparing yourself and your people for the storm? Are you teaching them the whole counsel of God or catering to itching ears? Are you including the warnings in your preaching? Are you preaching on only the goodness and mercy of God, or do you also preach on His severity, wrath and judgments? Are you only preaching on the love of God, or do you place emphasis on His holiness too? Do you ever preach on sin and repentance? Are your concepts of the love of God and the grace of God accurate and in accordance with Scripture?

      If not, then you may be guilty of the blood of men: "Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I did not keep from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. .... Therefore watch, remembering that for three years night and day I did not cease to warn everyone with tears" (Acts 20:26-27, 31).

      Make sure you are preparing yourselves and those whom God has entrusted to you for the storm. Oh, how much stronger our churches would be if we included these things in our preaching and teaching and living them out before the people!

    • Message from NCEF to all Christians in Nigeria

      It is now clear that if Christians do not organize to actively participate in Governance, the instrument of the State shall be used to progressively decimate the Church until Christianity is eventually “eradicated in all its forms and ramifications” in Nigeria. To avoid this calamity from coming to pass, the NCEF advises all Christians as follows:

    • Tell My Church and the Nation to Repent: They Are Not Sincere

      For the Nigerian Church this message is very timely and approriate. Considering the situation we are facing,  what God requires of the Nigerian Chuch to avert disaster is REPENTANCE AND UNITY of the Church.

      Urgency and sincerity are two words  rolling around in my spirit as I write this. With yet another historic event—the senseless killing of now 59 people in Las Vegas—we are being warned as a nation.

    • Why You Need to Embrace the Lost Art of Saying "No"

       

      I descended to a whole new low in my parenting a little while ago. In a moment of paternal virtue, I offered an expedition to a local pottery painting shop to my elementary-aged daughter, For a brief moment, I was indeed “Super Dad!” And then came my spectacular fall from grace.
