 The Third Great Awakening is on the Horizon

A Prophetic and Apostolic summary of the Future of San Francisco and Berkeley. Plus Firsthand Information and Insight from a Promised Land Spy.


Every month a group from Awakening Young Adults in Redding CA. head south to San Francisco with a dual purpose in mind; to partner in intercession with Jesse Engle and the Justice House of Prayer Team in the Castro District and to assist in planting a college ministry on U.C. Berkeley, Campus Awakening with a vision for igniting a prayer movement and releasing healing revivalists.

This Article is a brief prophetic summary of the current and future state of San Francisco and UC Berkeley through the eyes of Prophetic and Apostolic Voices in our nation and our role in this Awakening as a Prayer Movement and Campus Ministry. Today more then ever we are gripped with our mandate to shape course of world history and release the Third Great Awakening.

During our first trip to Berkeley in September Banning Liebscher, Awakening Pastor received a phone call from Cindy Jacobs as she was leaving the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders with a divine conformation for our mandate at Berkeley; SPIRITUAL AWAKENING AND REVIVAL!


“Homosexuals will be converted and brought to Christ through this love. In this 40-year anniversary of Haight Ashbury and the free-love movement, there will be a great movement of the love of Christ. This will particularly impact San Francisco, where many homosexuals will be turned to Christ.” An Excerpt from, "WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2007--Released through the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders

Jesse Engle and his team of Intercessors has been in San Francisco for almost one year burdened for a lost people group: homosexuals. Weeping and crying out is breaking forth in the SF JHOP in a way that has not been seen before. The team also took in a homeless mother who chose not to have an abortion but then had her baby taken and placed in foster care. The team helped her regain custody of the baby, which will soon be adopted by a Christian family, all of which our profound prophetic acts of mercy, righteous, and justice which bring a supernatural release. Read the following Excerpt from, The Shepherd's Rod 2007 for greater understanding below.

The following is An Excerpt from, The Shepherd's Rod 2007
Sowing righteousness will reap a harvest of salvation. Our call is to sow spiritually in uprightness that is birthed from a posture of right standing with God. In so doing, we will reap according to mercy and lovingkindness. We are entering a season of harvest. It will be a harvest of “harvesters.”

Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. — Psalms 126:5-6

What and how we sow will determine our harvest. We are to break up uncultivated ground outside the four wall of the institutional church. This will result in a wonderful harvest of gifted people who will be very fruitful in the Kingdom. They already have a zeal for spiritual things, if only misguided. Once they discover the truth, all their devotion and enthusiasm will be for Jesus.

Much prayer and sacrifice has already been invested in this day. Many seeds of revival and spiritual outpouring have been sown. We will now become the beneficiaries of a great spiritual inheritance and reap from “vineyards” that we did not plant. Even so, those who sow and those who reap will rejoice together. Jesus said in John 4,

Do you not say, "There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this {case} the saying is true, "One sows and another reaps — John 4:35-37

Seeds sown in prior generations have come to a place of maturity. Commissions, mantles and spiritual gifts can be apprehended that were previously worn by pioneers and leaders of the past.


“Harvest Season is upon us. Revival, revival. The youth are going to wake up on university campuses!” An Excerpt from, "WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2007--Released through the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders

“Finishing of bondage cycles. Season of captivity being broken over our personal lives, corporate visions, and national foundations. Bible reading was taken out of U.S. public schools in 1967, and it is time to end the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. This is the year to read the Bible in school” An Excerpt from, "WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2007--Released through the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders

Holiness in Our Schools
“A new holiness movement will spring up. Teachers will teach about holiness and preach against sin. This will spark revival movements, and the fear of the Lord will fall upon many. New young firebrands will preach holiness to their generation, and the "reality" generation will see Jesus for who He really is.”

“We are in the beginning stages of another Jesus People movement. Stanford and Berkeley will experience a huge shift towards righteousness in their student bodies. God-based societies will spring up theistic thinking. Secularism is going to start waning, and radical leftist professors are going to be moved out of the universities of America in surprising ways. The righteous walls are opening in our educational systems. Schools will be touched in the coming years, and a ground swell of this is starting now.” An Excerpt from, "WORD OF THE LORD FOR 2007--Released through the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders

“I Am the God of Revolution and a new wave of revolution will come into and out of Berkeley, UCLA, USC, Pepperdine, the University of Oregon and Oregon State. Even Gonzaga and Washington State will experience an awakening of My purpose. I am calling forth the revolution in San Diego that will awaken the borders of this land. Let the sound come forth on the West Coast to prepare them for the wave that is coming.” An Excerpt from, The Year 5767: A Time Of Movement And Clashing by Chuck D. Pierce


“This is the Day Marking the Beginning of Creative Miracles in America. This Shall be a Year of Great Deliverance for Those who are Troubled in Mind and Cry out for Mercy.” An Excerpt from The Shepherd's Rod 2007

The LORD has opened His armory and has brought forth the weapons of His indignation, for it is a work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans -Jeremiah 50:25

“Heaven's “storehouse” to which we are now given greater access is a prophetic portrayal of the divinely powerful weapons that have been provided for us through Christ's sufferings and more importantly His resurrection. It is resurrection life that He desires to delegate. In this spiritual armory are mantles of spiritual authority and power as well as great ministries of healing and creative miracles that will result in restored limbs and organs.” An Excerpt from The Shepherd's Rod 2007

Power Evangelism that saves cities
One of our prayer focuses of JHOP and Campus Awakening has been, Acts 4:16, “That notable miracles will be done that will be evident to all who live in San Francisco and Berkeley and that cannot denied.” Please join with us in this prayer for Jesus said, “If the miracles that were performed in Capernaum had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.” (Matthew 11:23 NIV)

The following is an excerpt from, The Shepherd's Rod 2007: This is the Day Cities that Welcome the Heavenly Realm will Have a Great Light over Them.

The Lord is indicating His desire to restore through His church, His original mandate for man and fully heal the breach that has existed since man's fall in the garden. Our cities will reflect Heaven's light only to the degree that the saints within them do so.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your
Father who is in heaven ---Matthew 5:14-16

One of the primary strategies to win our cities is through unity of the brethren. If the Lord can find just a few willing to live together in harmony with a common cause of advancing God's Kingdom, then He will pour out a special anointing of grace and favor that will illuminate our dwelling places. We will have unity to the degree that Christ is formed in us.

When this takes place we will then carry the battle to enemy gates and invade our cities with the ministry of restoration and awakening. We will help those who once experienced failure find their rightful place in the body of Christ. We will also retrieve those of our brethren who have fallen and begin to rejuvenate them into a new walk with Christ while also rescuing the unbelieving from the snare of the evil one.

City gates spoken of in the Bible were symbols of power and authority. Occupying city gates depicts a realm of authority to be delegated to believers who walk in the Lord's light. They will begin to emerge with the spiritual wisdom essential for this responsibility. This occurs when the eyes of our hearts are enlightened with the spirits of wisdom and revelation promised in Ephesians 1:17-18.

In Genesis 22:17 God promised Abraham that his descendants would possess the gates of their enemies. From this symbolic pledge, we will see many leaders carrying away the "gates"of the enemy that withstand God's purposes in various cities. This will result in notable expressions of spiritual outpouring and "revival." Those cities will have great "light" over them leading to spiritual awakening.

Let there Be Light!
Berkeley’s theme is, “Let there be Light”. It’s written on it’s gates and part of the schools very DNA and divine purpose. Matthew 5:14-16 is key in unlocking this gate, pray for an awakening of believers on campus; that they would to arise and shine so that the Lamb can receive His glorious reward in the nations of the earth.

The Father of Lights
This issue of demonstrations of supernatural works is vital to opening up San Francisco to a revelation of the Fathers love. For it is a city of prodigal sons who are looking for the Father of Lights and those Lights are believers in the Bay Area! Pray that they will go public with their faith and works the works of God.

Pray Isaiah 60:1-5 over San Francisco and Berkeley
"Arise, shine Believer’s of San Francisco and Berkeley, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.”

UNITY: The Prayer and Power Movements Converge
The covenant relationship between to distinct streams in the Charismatic world has been consummated with the Justice House of Prayer (A ministry of prayer) and Campus Awakening (A ministry of power & prayer) with a vision to see the Third Great Awakening. I believe this unity will bring special anointing and an increase of power and authority that has not been seen in this generation, to not only take both San Francisco and Berkeley by the grace of God but our whole nation.

Prophet Bob Jones gave a word to Awakening, “In three years a New Authority and Move of God will come out of Redding”. (That word was fulfilled recently when The Red Riders of The Cause with Jesse Engle came on their revival prayer tour to Bethel. Today Awakening Young Adults our moving south, I believe is a prophetic sign of the convergence and release of this word to be fulfilled in San Francisco, Berkeley, and beyond)

We will begin to see greater momentum as both movements converge. And as a result of this unity of the Body the arm will receive great strength from the heart and as the veins are enlarged through night and day targeted intercession and a hands-on evangelistic movement, I believe the Body of Christ will demonstrate great acts of power that will cause cities to fall to Jesus as in the book of Acts. I believe this divine connection will propel mass harvest as we approach the, “Third Great and Greatest Awakening”.
