History belongs to the intercessors, who believe the future into being... By means of our intercessions we veritably cast fire upon the earth and trumpet the future into being.   - Walter Wink


When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all God’s people, on the golden altar in front of the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake. Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.  Revelation 8:1-6


I’d like to revisit the dream that Chris Berglund had last week. In the dream he saw four generals stationed in the four corners of the nation: one in California, one in Florida, one in New England and another in the Northwest. The generals were each blowing a trumpet and, as they did, an angel named Awake was released across America. It was clear that we had to have the trumpets blown - almost like a bugle call - to release this mighty angel.


Friends, this dream was given to me by the same man that initially dreamed of my Bartleman calling. For 34 years he’s been a prophetic voice to me. I think God is shouting, “It’s time to trumpet: ‘Awake. Awake. Awake!’ The 3rd Great Awakening is at hand.”


Prophecy precedes the great breakthroughs. The whirlwind of God has gone forth and it’s time to jump into that chariot and lay hold of the mantles of the giants of the past! Frank Bartleman said, “Heroes will arise from the dust of obscure and despised circumstances, whose names will be emblazoned on heaven’s eternal page of fame.”


Men and women, let us throw propriety away. It is time to haggle with heaven. It’s time to storm the gates of hell until the blinding light of dawn breaks out on California’s crystal coast. Once again she’ll sing the songs she sang in the days of her youth. There will be dancing in the streets and shouting, “Salvation belongs to our God!”



God, if ever I have been a trumpet to your lips, may I be so now! I eagerly desire for myself and for all of your prophetic priesthood, that we would sound forth the very vibrations from your throne. ARISE oh angel of Awakening! We release you to wake up the sleeping giant in America! Wake up the Church of California! We declare, ‘The 3rd Great Awakening is at hand!’”
