I was recently watching a worship video from the Upper Room Dallas, and I was astonished to see much of the church was made up of millennials. The Lord began to speak to me and tell me, "The Church needs to prepare, the millennials are coming." Many say the millennial generation is the most unchurched generation. The millennials are carrying revolution. They are coming to break the religious systems and structures in the Church, because they are presence driven. They want to know and experience the real thing. Millennials will be the face of the Church in the years to come.
As I saw this influx of millenials coming to the Body of Christ, I saw the Lord begin to heal and restore the identity of the millennials. The world has tried to strip them of identity and gender, and tell them what they should be, The Church has been silent and judgmental on this issue. The millennials are longing for idenity. Where there has been a lack of identity, broken sexuality, and confusion, there is going to be a massive move of God to heal broken sexuality and identity as they encounter the love of the Father. I see purity movements being birthed from this move that will impact a generation.
The millennials will lead the way. They religious will say they are undignified and don't fit the model of the church, but the Lord's power will rest on those who are undignified for Him. Many revivals will break out accross the nation in colleges and universities as millennials gather to meet for Bible Studies that will turn into glory meeting. I see millennials partnering with spiritual fathers and mothers to plant revival houses and hubs.
There is a new breed of millennial aposles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists. The Father is looking for spiritual mothers and fathers to partner will the millennials. Malachi 4:6 says, "He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse." There is a power and a synergy that will be released as they learn to work together. The Lord is raising up a new breed of millennials that will walk in the 5-fold offices. Here come the millennials!
