On December 31, 2009, the Holy Spirit spoke through me and said: "I'm going to shake the earth. You will begin to see earthquakes—I am going to shake everything that can be shaken. Look where the earthquakes are hitting because God is going to release a wind of Pentecost in those places."
Since that time we have seen an increase in earthquake activity on a large scale. Haiti experienced horrible devastation during a recent quake. But afterward, the president called for three days of fasting and prayer for the nation. This was a miracle in a country that had formerly been dedicated to voodoo.
With only five days’ notice, Christian leaders were able to gather about 1,000,000 people for a prayer meeting. On that day, the winds of Pentecost did indeed blow. Three thousand people were saved—among them 101 voodoo priests. It seems the back of the strongman of the occult was broken in that land, and I believe a new Haiti will arise.
Chile also took a hit from a high-magnitude earthquake. And I was amazed to awaken one morning and find that a tsunami had rolled over an island called Robinson Crusoe. The night before the shaking, my husband, Mike, and I had done something that was unusual for us, considering our busy schedule. We had stayed home and watched a movie—about Robinson Crusoe!
The Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me exactly where the tsunami had taken place. It had swept toward the Hawaiian Islands, where I had prophesied in the Aloha Bowl in 1992 that Hawaii would be the first Christian state. Because of an early warning about the tsunami, many prayed, and the tsunami did not sweep the islands. Other places, such as Japan, did have strong waves and strange-colored seas.
Two Scripture passages that prophetic voices have been proclaiming for some time are Haggai 2:7 and Hebrews 12:26-29. Each of these passages speaks about shaking. Hab. 2:14 tells us what the results of the shaking will be: “The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (NKJV).
There is no doubt that God is speaking through nature. The earthquakes also tell us that the earth is “groaning” for the manifestation of the sons of God (see Rom. 8:19).
God is about to be the God of creation in ways we cannot imagine. These things come to wake us up.
One of the prophecies I have been giving is to “look for the earthquakes in unusual places” because these would be places of visitations of His glory.
Baja, California, recently experienced a 7.2-magnitude earthquake. Many people there have been praying over our borders with Mexico. Prophetically, I say to the drug lords on the border: “Beware! Turn, or the spirit of San la Muerte will turn on you and exact payment. I, says the Lord, am going to deal with the cartels and those who would shake their fists in My face. The shaking has begun, and it will increase.”
Another place that has experienced shaking recently is Los Angeles. Jaeson Ma (jaesonma.com), my son in the Lord, noted that a 4.4-magnitude earthquake hit at 4:04 a.m. on March 16. Tremors related to the quake hit northern California with a magnitude of 4.1 at 4:01 a.m.
God gave Jaeson Psalm 4:4: “Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.”
After the earthquake on March 16, Jaeson wrote in his prayer letter, “It just so happens [that] this year Easter lands on 4/4. God is warning us—waking us and urging us to wash ourselves clean of all sin and unrighteousness to prepare for a great glory that is about to be revealed in our land, but it will not come without impending shaking and possible judgment.”
He went on to share that he had spoken about this in a prayer gathering in Hollywood for people in the arts and entertainment industry. Jaeson touched on the significance of 4-4. One leader pointed out how important “4s” are in music. Music is often notated in 4/4, 4/8 or 4/32 time signatures. He felt that the “4s” that are rocking the city of Los Angeles are significant.
Another earthquake rocked Los Angeles on Easter— 4/4. I encourage you to look to the areas where all these earthquakes were felt and ask God to shake the things that need to be shaken to reveal His glory. It is time for His glory to be revealed so all can see it!
As I prayed about these signs the Holy Spirit spoke to me once again and said, “Winds of Pentecost.” I immediately thought about what I had prophesied at the memorial service for Freda Lindsay, the former president of Christ for the Nations Bible Institute in Dallas: “The winds of Pentecost are blowing, and they are going to take the seeds that she has sown and blow them across the face of the earth. There are mantles falling if you want them.”
On April 5, the Lord said to me: “Cindy, Pentecost. Check out the dates for this year’s Pentecost and call my people to cry out on that date.”
Pentecost this year is May 23, and it will be somewhat unusual because the eastern and western traditions will be converging, with the celebrations being held on the same date. This does happen, but rarely. In addition, the last Global Day of Prayer event (these prayer meetings have been going on for 10 years and this is the last one), will be held on Pentecost Sunday in Capetown, South Africa.
God wants His winds of Pentecost to blow at Pentecost. The Lord says: “I want My people to pray in a new Pentecost that will sweep the face of the earth, for I am coming with divine visitation that will touch heaven and earth. Many will be swept into the kingdom of God, and My glory will pour out with signs and wonders both in heaven and [on] the earth!”
In the Russian Orthodox tradition, the night of Pentecost calls for a special “kneeling prayer” service in which everyone makes a full prostration, touching their foreheads to the floor. We may not be called to a similar demonstration, but let’s all participate in a day of fasting and prayer as the Holy Spirit has directed so that a Pentecost of wind, fire, and glory will break out across the earth in unusual ways.
