Jeremiah 1:9b-10 I have put my words in your mouth! I have set you over the nations and over kingdoms, your job is to pull up and tear down, take apart and demolish, and then start over, building and planting.
Thinking back, it was a chilly November day in 1999 in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN while watching Christian television that I first saw the prince of modern-day preachers for the very first time! There was a great surge of the Holy Ghost during the replay of the 1997 Pastors’ and Church Leaders’ conference. Revival was in full flow in the sanctuary, a Baptist preacher had been dramatically filled with the Holy Spirit at World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio. There was a fresh flow with signs and wonders following.
Only being 22 years old, I never would have thought the Sumrall Tabernacle – THE HARV – would need to be remodeled from the royal purple carpet and traditional old-school wooden pews. Oh, and that beautiful wood platform built upon the Jerusalem stone, what a site it was! What a privilege it has been to sit under the Pastoral ministry of Rod Parsley for over 20 years! But what a sight it is coming together 23 years later!
I am reminded of Jeremiah 1 now! There is a remodeling happening in the Church, not just physically but also spiritually. What you see happening in the natural realm has already happened in the spiritual realm. What an opportunity to be part of a prophetic and NOW apostolic anointing coming out of Columbus, O-H-I-O!

**This is a fresh anointing, where a now Word will pour out into new wineskins (Matthew 9:16-17, Ezekiel 11:19-20, Malachi 4:6a & 2 Corinthians 5:17). There will be a fresh Word in this new day, this new season, and it will build and plant the hearts of the next generation firmly in the Word of God! Embrace this new season as the Church prepares for the final wave, this final wave will be a tidal wave of the anointing that will set the captive free. AND the 3rd phase is the greatest phase – cause it is Legacy Phase!!!**
Always be ready because God wants to do a new thing in you…
Matthew 9:16-17 16 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the garment, and a worse tear is made. 17 Neither is new wine put into old wineskins. If it is, the skins burst and the wine is spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.”
Ezekiel 11:19-20 19 And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, 20 that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
Malachi 4:6a 6 And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers,
2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
