Easter morning I heard the words “He is back,” and my response was “who”. Immediately I heard the words “the Hopewell Angel.“
My mind went to a prophecy and drawing from 1983 of the angels of the Hopewell Churches standing next to Jesus on either side. The ones immediately next to Jesus were more pronounced and each additional angel beside it was fading, as if they were churches yet to come. But this was not the last time I heard these words; at the following pastors’ meeting, while worshipping, I heard not only the words “he is back” but that He was “the Hopewell Angel of Revival.”
Hopewell Elverson had experienced revival in the 70s and 80s, and out of the revival came a birthing of the Hopewell Network, which continues to expand here in the United States and internationally.
Since Hopewell, Elverson had experienced revival, the longing to see revival again has always been in our hearts. In 1988 the longing turned to a promise through the scripture in Haggai 2:6-9: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty. ‘The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the Lord Almighty.”
Now, here again the Lord was giving us a word that the Hopewell Angel was back and by faith preparing us for what is promised in Haggai that “the glory of this present house will be greater than the former house.”
We have the opportunity to participate in another great move of God that will not only affect our Network but the world. Let’s join with the Holy Spirit and Christians around the world to pray for revival. Your prayers can change the world!
