I have titled this possible prophetic word as a question because I do not claim to be a prophet or mouthpiece for God. I am really just a person who has made a lot of mistakes and am just thankful for my personal salvation. In the last 12 months or so I have become friends with TFI members and was invited to write on a blog founded by current TFI members. I have really been impressed with the anointing upon the life of TFI member Michael Basham and other TFI members, and I do believe God has great plans for TFI.
In the past months and weeks I have had what could be visions and a burden about the future of The Family International (TFI)/Children of God (COG). I feel TFI has gone through much persecution and the leadership of TFI has gone through some major personal attacks in the last few years. I believe many people in leadership positions in TFI have been going through personal hardships, and since the reboot both TFI members and TFI leadership have been trying to find themselves in this re-invented structure. People are seeking God and asking Him what He wants them to do and what their role is as TFI takes on a more loose structure after the reboot. I believe God has a plan for TFI and that things are beginning to take a turn for the best.
I personally believe from what I have felt in the spirit that TFI is going to come into a new revival. I believe former persecutors of TFI (such as Bob who I interviewed) are going to have a change of heart as they realize TFI is an organization called by God. This is already happening. I have conversed with some of the fiercest haters of TFI and these people are genuinely sorry for persecuting TFI. One former hater of TFI I spoke with is convinced TFI is a principal part of the end time church of Jesus Christ. I think the change of heart from former haters of TFI is a sign that revival and positive change is on the horizon. These former haters are possessed by demons and it’s clear the Holy Spirit is driving these demons out of these haters, so it’s clear the Lord is confirming this word with signs and wonders. “And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” (Mark 16:20) I also believe many of these former haters are going to become the greatest advocates and supporters of TFI. God is able to turn things around for the best. We also see this with the Apostle Paul who was the greatest persecutor of Jesus disciples; however God turned his life around and made him a leader of the church. Paul who was the greatest hater and persecutor of the Christian church, became an Apostle of Jesus Christ and he wrote much of the New Testament. I really see God turning much of the hate toward TFI into love as God’s word says, “He will give us beauty for ashes.”
There are also a lot of TFI members and TFI supporters (such as myself) who are emerging online and celebrating much of the work TFI has done in the present and in the past. I think this online emergence of TFI is going to be a catalyst for something that the Lord wants to do. Social media and online platforms are going to be the beginning of this TFI revival.
Last night I was in my bed asleep and I woke up possessed by a Spirit and this Spirit prayed these words through me, “Lord I pray for a revival for The Family International and for Karen Zerby.” This was not me praying but an actual Spirit praying through me and I do not believe this was a demon, I believe this was the Holy Spirit and I believe this was the Holy Spirit praying through me. I believe there is a revival coming to TFI and I believe as people express their passion for Jesus and for TFI’s messages through social media, I believe this is going to be the beginning of the coming outpouring. I believe as people continue sharing their passion for Jesus and TFI online, that this is going to lead to: meetups, parties, concerts, raves and other celebrations in Jesus name. I believe these celebrations are going to be a time to worship and dance for Jesus, and also a time for people to share TFI’s end time literature and positive evangelical literature. As these events and exchange of literature begin, I believe this is going to lead to an increase in TFI membership and a revival in the organization.
These are just some of my personal thoughts and visions I have received. I do not claim to be a prophet or anything like that. I actually had these visions and burdens a while back and was unsure whether to write this article, however last night the Holy Spirit prayed through me that Karen Zerby and TFI would have a revival. So I believe the Lord has been speaking to me about this and has inspired me to write this article. If you would like to pray for a revival in the lives of: Karen Zerby. Steven Kelly and The Family International (TFI), I encourage you to pray the below prayer.
I would like to pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a revival to occur within the Christian group, The Family International. Please touch the lives of those involved with this group and inspire a revival to occur within them. Please pour out your Holy Spirit upon them so they can be better witnesses for you and please confirm the word they preach with signs and wonders. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
