A Prophecy Attributed to Smith Wigglesworth in 1947
“During the next few decades there will be two distinct moves of the Holy Spirit across the church in Great Britain. The first move will affect every church that is open to receive it and will be characterized by a restoration of the baptism and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
“The second move of the Holy Spirit will result in people leaving historic churches and planting new churches.
“In the duration of each of these moves, the people who are involved will say, ‘This is a great revival.’ But the Lord says, ‘No, neither is this the great revival but both are steps towards it.’
“When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidence in the churches of something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the “Word” and those with an emphasis on the “Spirit.” WHEN THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT COME TOGETHER, there will be the biggest move of the Holy Spirit that the nation, and indeed, the world has ever seen.
It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and Welsh revivals of former years. The outpouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to mainland Europe and from there will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth.”
Smith Wigglesworth speaking to Lester Sumrall:
Wigglesworth cried saying, “I probably won’t see you again now. My job is almost finished.”
As he continued to pray, he cried “I see it, I see it!”
Brother Sumrall asked, “What do you see, what do you see?
He said, “I see a healing revival coming right after World War II. It’ll be so easy to get people healed. I see it! I see it! I won’t be here for it, but you will be.” And there was a healing revival right after the war.
He continued to prophesy, “I see another one. I see people of all different denominations being filled with the Holy Ghost.” That was the Charismatic Revival. God raised up people during that era, like the Full Gospel Businessmen.
Then Brother Wigglesworth continued, “I see another move of God. I see auditoriums full of people, coming with notebooks. There will be a wave of teaching on faith and healing.” We did experience that wave he saw, and we call it the Word of Faith movement.
Then he prophesied, “After that, after the third wave,” he started sobbing. “I see the last day revival that’s going to usher in the precious fruit of the earth. It will be the greatest revival this world has ever seen! It’s going to be a wave of the gifts of the Spirit. The ministry gifts will be flowing on this planet earth. I see hospitals being emptied out, and they will bring the sick to the churches where they allow the Holy Ghost to move.”
This Last Move of God will not be a two or three Year Revival it will be a Millennium Revival. Smith Wigglesworth was in the UK when he gave this Word. He saw what God was going to do in Europe and it would begin in the UK (England) and spread throughout Europe.
However, what Smith Wigglesworth did not see was that this Revival will not begin in the UK it will begin in America beginning in the City of San Francisco and eventually it will spread throughout the World. San Francisco will become one of God’s Crown Jewels.
It will begin in the City of San Francisco and move from San Francisco to China (Shanghai), Russia, Cairo Egypt and Jerusalem in Israel before it finds its way to Europe. There is going to be a Major Revival in Russia.
