Sometimes it feels like we are sitting in front row seats for the awesome things God is doing right now…it also seems all of creation is expressing the birth pains of something phenominal that’s about to take place.
Holly Watson’s most recent word shares some great insight into what we can expect in the days ahead. She shares:
“It’s time to emerge!” I heard Holy Spirit shout this phrase into my spirit as we crossed over into a new season. Immediately I thought of Lazarus, as Jesus called Lazarus out of the grave, despite the unbelief of others. By all appearance’s sake, Lazarus didn’t have much hope of coming back to life; at least that was until the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit moved through Jesus and broke down the walls of man-made assumptions.
“Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth!’ And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, ‘Loose him, and let him go.'” (John 11:43-44)
Lazarus was a sign and a wonder to those who doubted in the sovereignty of God. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus back to life, the power of God was on display for all to see. Lazarus was a living example of how God caused a turnaround in the bleakest of situations. The name Lazarus means “Whom God helps” or “the assistance of God.” The story of Lazarus is a perfect example of a 12th hour miracle, sparking faith in the unbelieving!
“I am making a way where there seems no way, and I am calling My Church to emerge into a new place of power and glory.“
“Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion.”(Isaiah 8:18)
All the Signs Are There—Pay Attention!
If you live on the West Coast or have watched any of the media outlets lately, you have probably seen the reports about the migration of butterflies moving up the coastline from the deserts of Mexico. Over the past several weeks, it’s been quite a phenomenon to observe as Holy Spirit speaks through the signs and wonders of nature. No matter what your opinion is of California, the hand of God has definitely been on display through the movement of these Painted Lady butterflies.
“This shall be the sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that He has promised.” (Isaiah 38:7)
I was driving in my car recently when I heard Holy Spirit say, “All the signs are there. Pay attention!” A few events foreshadowed this prophetic message from the Lord, as I had been tracking with Holy Spirit through the manifestation of the signs of God working miraculously in our midst. Not only had Holy Spirit populated old prophetic words in my inbox dating back to the year 2015, but the Lord had been speaking to me about a revival angel who would be awakening the earth through the signs and sounds of harvest.
“And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from Heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.”(Matthew 28:2-3)
In Strong’s Dictionary the word “sign” is the Hebrew word ōth. All throughout Scripture from Genesis to Revelation we read of examples where God used signs as evidence to demonstrate His movements upon the earth. Signs are a flag, a beacon of light, a prophetic marker, a signal and a banner. They are supernatural tokens of the miraculous appearance of God, orchestrating events to awaken man to His sovereignty and wonder-working power.
In Deuteronomy 6:22, Scripture says that God showed signs and wonders great and grievous before our eyes. In Luke 21:25-28, we read that the evidence of signs appearing on the earth will signal the coming of the Son of Man, at the end of the age. The appearance of signs led the Israelites through the wilderness through a cloud by day and a fire by night. God spoke to Moses on the backside of the desert through a burning bush, shifting Moses and the Israelites into a new era, by a sign appearing in an unexpected and out-of-the-ordinary place. In Judges 6:36-40, when Gideon laid his fleece before God, God responded to Gideon by giving him a sign as an answer to his prayer.
Jesus showed many signs and wonders to awaken unbelievers to who He was. Holy Spirit performed signs through the hands of the apostles as they were sent as “Fishers of Men,” fulfilling the Great Commission.
There’s no doubt that the physical manifestation of miraculous signs is a part of the DNA of God! Scripture exhorts us not to seek after signs (Matthew 12:39). However, the appearance of signs confirms, affirms and leads us into the heart and will of the Father, while His Spirit makes Himself known through the evidence of signs. (Photo via Unsplash)
“And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.” (1 Samuel 10:7)
The Billion Soul Harvest
As the West Coast has become a witness to the sight of these beautiful butterflies soaring up the coastline, “the billion soul harvest” prophecy by Bob Jones has definitely resonated in many of our hearts. It’s not uncommon for this beautiful breed of butterfly to make its way north during the spring of each year. However, this year, 1 billion butterflies are forecasted to migrate to their new home in the Northwest, after having sojourned through the state of California.
According to news reports, the emergence of this beautiful breed of butterfly is due to the elevated levels of precipitation accumulating on the West Coast after 7 years of prolonged drought. The outpouring of rain saturating the dry and barren soil, has created prime conditions for harvesting a billion butterflies. What makes this story even more intriguing, is that these 1 billion butterflies migrated from the backside of the wilderness, only to find an abundance of wealth in an out-of-the-ordinary place, and unexpected land! God chose the sign of these butterflies and the conditions in which they originated from to send a message to the Church, that the billion soul harvest has begun!
I hear the Spirit of the Lord say, “Now is the time for My Church to arise and shine for her light has come. Where barrenness and a depletion of life have inflicted a rebellious and lost generation, a harvest of new souls are emerging for such a time as this. I AM moving in new ways and in new power in the most unexpected places in the land.
“I am making a way where there seems to be no way, and I am calling My Church to emerge into a new place of power and glory. The phrase ‘cast your net on the other side’ is My meter for pulling in an unusual harvest of souls. A mass amount of ‘refugees’ (including the homeless, the outcasts, the prodigals, a lawless generation, and illegal aliens) will come to know My name and the power of resurrection life. I am birthing a new move of My Spirit through unexpected sources. I am choosing undercover vessels to make My name well known and famous. I am no respecter of persons,” says the Spirit of the Lord. “And I am giving new life to those who surrender to My call.”
“There’s no doubt that the physical manifestation of miraculous signs is a part of the DNA of God!“
“They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest, He blessed them, and their number greatly increased…” (Psalm 107:37-38)
The Mantle of Paul Cain
On February 12, my husband and I were sitting at our dining room table when a “suddenly” came upon us. I had been in a time of preparation for a local service through prayer and fasting, when a mantle dropped from Heaven and rested upon my shoulders. As I felt the effects of what was transpiring in the spiritual realm; Holy Spirit then took me into a vision where I saw mantles being distributed to the saints of God, in specific and strategic regions. I hadn’t expected the placement of this mantle to feel so weighty. However, I realized soon enough that the call upon this mantle was for a bold, radical and outrageous generation. It wasn’t until a few days later that I discovered the well-know prophet, Paul Cain, had gone on to glory. This happened during the exact time my husband and I had this supernatural encounter with the Lord.
“Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into Heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried out, ‘My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and its horsemen!’….Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him…” (2 Kings 2:11-12, 14)
Paul Cain was known as a “Latter Rain Prophet” who prophesied the end-time stadium revivals. I’ve never met Paul Cain in person, and before this encounter with the new mantles I had very little knowledge about the man or his ministry. However, I believe this too is a sign from the Lord that a new generation of prophetic evangelists are being commissioned and mantled afresh with a double portion of anointing and power. I believe a new impartation for stadium revivals are being awakened at this hour to touch a generation with a radical move of the Spirit.
A changing of the guard has occurred! A sweeping move of God is prepared to blaze through the land as the Church makes her mark on the world! An on-fire remnant of not only Millennials, but end-time, chosen generals of the faith are merging streams to host a move of God in shocking and startling ways. “Unpredictable” is the word I keep hearing! When the right streams align at the right kairos moment in time, Heaven touching Earth will bring mighty demonstrations of God’s glory!
“For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake Heaven and Earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts.” (Haggai 2:6-7)
The Revival Angel
A few weeks ago the Lord showed me a revival angel being released upon the earth. When I saw this revival angel, the West Coast was highlighted as a place where the resurrection power of God would occur. I saw a great shaking in the spiritual realm for the state of California, as the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles was an epicenter for the Spirit of the Lord to move through with miracles, signs and wonders like never before.
I saw the appearance of this revival angel as a prophetic marker of how the Father is desiring to move across the land.

Even though deep darkness covers the face of the earth, and the evidence of the earth groaning with birth pains is on the heart of every Believer, the Spirit of the Lord is sending signs to His people of an end-time emergence of the billion soul harvest.
This is the Church’s greatest hour! God is calling an Esther generation to arise and be a voice while accomplishing great Kingdom exploits. The Spirit of the Lord says, “All the signs are there. Pay attention. It’s time to emerge!”
“Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!”
