The Third Great Awakening: Turning America Back to God August 24, 2021 | Andrew Wommack Andrew Wommack is president of the Truth & Liberty Coalition. He and other influential Christian leaders formed the Truth & Liberty Coalition to make a difference in culture by speaking about moral issues and dealing with current events.God has done something really special. He spoke to me on March 5, 2021, and told me some things that have changed my perspective dramatically.This is a deal changer. And since He spoke these things to me, I want to share them with you.An Encounter with GodI was in Oklahoma City at a meeting called The Encounter. My niece and nephew put on the event along with some other Charis Bible College graduates.I was so pleased to see my niece and nephew hosting this event where there were about 700 people. They were just starting in ministry and were already close to where I’ve arrived after more than 50 years in ministry. I was so excited to see people coming, the things that were happening, and the maturity they were operating in.On Friday, March 5, we were worshiping and the power of the Lord was present. We were singing a song about how the goodness of God “keeps running after me.” I was praising God and thanking Him for the encouragement of seeing the younger generation come along, take up the banner, and preach the Gospel.I was really excited and praising God. As I was worshiping, the Lord spoke to me. He said, “There are some people in this auditorium who, in the future, will be telling the young people of their generation about what it was like to live during the Third Great Awakening in America.”Speaking in Historical TermsNow, “Great Awakening” is a term I normally wouldn’t use! I might have used the terms “revival,” “move of God,” “a new wave,” or something like that. To me, a Great Awakening goes back to the early years of America.The First Great Awakening was back in the 1700s and is what occasioned this nation coming into being. The Second Great Awakening was in the 1800s and led to the end of slavery.It was clear to me that this wasn’t my own thought—this was God speaking to me that we were going to have a Third Great Awakening.So I said, “God, are You saying that we are actually going to see a Third Great Awakening?”A National IssueNow, before I tell you how God responded to my question, let me share with you 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV):If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.I can’t tell you how many times I have prayed that scripture. But here’s the problem I had: it says “if my people,” not “if my person.” This isn’t something that just one person can do. It’s talking about the Body of Christ—and they have to “humble themselves,” and they have to “pray,” and they have to “seek [His] face.”As a nation, had we met the conditions of God’s promise? Only God knew if those conditions had actually been met.The Spiritual Condition of AmericaI believe we are at a tipping point in the United States. God has promised that He would heal our land—He would forgive our sins—but we had to do some things first. So when the Lord said there were people in that room who would be telling the young people of their generation what it was like to be a part of the Third Great Awakening, that excited me.I said, “God, are You saying that we are actually going to see a Third Great Awakening? Have those conditions [in 2 Chronicles 7:14] been met? Is it going to happen?”When I said that, very clearly the Lord spoke to me and said, “No. It’s not coming. It’s already begun.”Be EncouragedI just can’t tell you what that’s done for me. This is what I’ve been fighting for my whole life—to see people changed, believing that if enough people were changed it would change nations. It would change the entire culture of the world!Now, I believe I have a word from the Lord that it’s already happening!I believe we are already seeing this Great Awakening. Some people may not acknowledge it, but I can see positive signs. Despite all the recent COVID restrictions, we’ve been setting records in nearly every area of our ministry—financially, the number of calls received, the number of new live streams, and new contacts—all in a year when we couldn’t travel and hold meetings. And my friends who are also preaching the Gospel are experiencing similar things.I want to encourage you that the Great Awakening of God has already begun, and there is evidence of it everywhere!I recently interviewed David and Tim Barton of WallBuilders, who helped put this Third Great Awakening into perspective. We discussed the history of revival, what to expect during an awakening, and the First and Second Great Awakenings in America. I encourage you to watch it.
