Forerunners Desperately Needed in This Hour

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

I’m sure you have seen your share of infomercials. An enthusiastic salesperson advertises a product and keeps saying but there’s more. They add an additional product and then say but there’s more. They keep doing this until the end of the ad.

2020 reminds me of an infomercial. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, one more thing comes out of nowhere.

Right when the Covid-19 pandemic seemed to calm down, protests, riots, and anarchy broke out in cities across America. Buildings were set on fire. Police were defunded. Chaz or Chop or whatever the name is now was formed within Seattle.

To top it off, in a clear violation of the constitution, the Supreme Court reinterpreted the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sex now includes sexual orientation and gender identification. This will have profound implications on religious freedom in America in the months and years ahead.

The Church’s Finest Hour

If I keep writing about the turmoil taking place in America, we will all be depressed. So, I will talk about some good news.

Speaking about the end times, Isaiah said, “For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you” (Isa. 60:2).

As I already shared, deep darkness is increasing. But so is God’s glory. Before the Lord returns, God will pour out His glory upon the end-time church. Even though circumstances are challenging, the church’s finest hour has arrived.

Do you want to be an instrumental part of this end-time move of God’s Spirit? If so, let me share what I believe is part of God’s solution to the increasing darkness.

A Global Team of Forerunners

The Lord has put a dream in my heart. This dream is part of His solution to combat the rising tide of darkness.

My dream is to train and equip a global team of forerunners.

For over twenty years, Luke 1:16-17 has defined my life calling. Speaking of John the Baptist, it states, “And he will turn many of the sons of Israel back to the Lord their God. It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS BACK TO THE CHILDREN, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous, so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

John the Baptist was a forerunner. His ministry alerted and prepared people for Jesus’ imminent appearing. He was anointed to turn Israel away from self-serving pursuits back to the Lord. John made many people ready for the Messiah’s first coming. In our day, before the Lord’s return, God is raising up end-time forerunners. Like John, these will make people ready for Christ’s second coming.

Last December, the Lord spoke to me very clearly. He commissioned me to birth forerunners who will operate in the spirit and power of Elijah. These messengers, master builders, and intercessors will help turn people back to Christ and make them ready for His return.

Forerunner School

To fulfill this commission, we are starting Forerunner School in September. Forerunner School will equip you to:

  • Experience deep intimacy with Jesus;
  • Live by the power of Christ’s indwelling life;
  • Understand the necessity of forerunners who will prepare the bride of Christ;
  • Understand God’s eternal purpose that drives everything that He does;
  • Overcome dead religion, false doctrines, worldly compromise, and lukewarm love;
  • Become a faithful witness of truth in a compromising world;
  • Courageously declare the prophetic times in which we live;
  • Intercede for the fullness of God’s eternal plan and purpose.

Never before has there been such an urgent need for devoted messengers who will make a people ready for the Lord. These messengers will help prepare the bride for Jesus Christ—a bride who will be pure, conformed into His image, and passionately in love with Him.

My Dream

This Forerunner School is the culmination of a two-decade-plus dream that has been stirring in my heart.

My dream is to raise up a company of forerunners, forerunner missionaries who will go to the nations, and a network of forerunner mission bases in America and other nations.

My dream is to equip thousands of believers with the forerunner message (described in the bullet list above) and to see them sent throughout America and the nations.

My dream is to train forerunners who will equip the body of Christ around the world to make themselves ready, to overcome darkness and compromise, to stand strong in difficult times, to be a faithful witness of the truth, and to be a voice in the turbulent times ahead.

My dream is to help establish forerunner mission bases built upon the forerunner message. These mission bases will become a house of prayer for the nations, they will train others in the forerunner message, and they will send out missionaries to other cities and nations.

For my dream to become a reality, training is required. That is why we are staring the Forerunner School. We want to train and prepare forerunners with the needed message to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Forerunner School is a twelve class, eighteen-month program involving self-study and group connection. We were originally going to charge a fee, but after the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to offer it for free. The first cycle begins September 1st, 2020.

I want to personally invite you to join us in this exciting and much needed program. You can check out the school and register online at

If your heart is to become an end-time forerunner—functioning as a messenger, master builder, or intercessor—you will not regret investing your time and energy into this program. I am looking forward to seeing you in September.
