Then he asked me, "Son of man, can these bones become living people again?" "O Sovereign LORD," I replied, "you alone know the answer to that…” – Ezekiel 37:3

I am even now realigning the power grid in Chicago and turning over the tables of men’s planning and presumption. I will roll away the stone of resistance and a clarion call of “Lazarus come forth” shall be heard in the streets. The dry bones of spiritual miscarriage are beginning to stir and the destinies predetermined before the foundation of earth are forthcoming. The wineskin of former efforts are about to burst making way for a new breed!

I will break up the fallow ground in Chicago and the treasures out of darkness will be revealed – the inner-city and those in the valley of the shadow of death will be translated into the Kingdom of My Son. An exceedingly great and mighty army will emerge from under bridges, behind shopping carts, in homeless missions, battered shelters and prison houses. And those parts of the body that we think to be less honorable, we clothe these with greater honor.” – 1st Cor. 12:23

Even now I will release the gale winds of My Will says the Lord and the giants will topple and the walls fall flat and the prison doors swing wide open. I will save to the uttermost and the ones that sit in darkness shall see a Great Light. “To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” – Luke 1:79


“Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, “Let me go to the field and glean among the ears of grain after him in whose sight I shall find favor.” And she said to her, “Go, my daughter.” – Ruth 2:2

The favor of harvest will surely overtake you says the Lord; the favor to reap and to glean is upon you O Chicago – it is a Kairos time. Angels of Harvest are circling the city laying siege to the fortifications that separate and divide. They have heard the earnest prayer for workers and even now they are mustering an army. An army of first-fruits that will do the work that I have called you to.

Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, "Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." Revelation 14:15

The streets will resound with singing as I open the gates and the King of Glory comes in. The derelict, discontent and desperate will be glad because of what the Lord has done for them. They will rejoice for their sons and daughters have come back from the land of the enemy. I will restore your borders says the Lord and give you a harvest in the field.


“Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. – Joel 2:13

I will surely give you fruit meet for repentance as you return to your first love and do the first works. For I have dug a well of revival in you that predates your earliest settlers; and those Native to your land have prayed and prophesied these very things that will shortly come to pass. These dry bones will surely live says the Lord, they will live!


"When the poor and needy search for water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I, the LORD, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will never abandon them. I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus. I will give them fountains of water in the valleys. I will fill the desert with pools of water. Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground.” – Isaiah 41:17-18

I have heard the cry of your people and surely I will open up the flood Gates Illinois – I will call for the alarm to be sounded and awake those that sleep. I will give bread to the hungry and water for the thirsty for even now I am stirring the waters. Those that have been pushed out and left for dead will surely be blessed and I will cause you to bind up their wounds. You will pour in the precious oil and wine and they will be healed. You will bind up the broken hearted.

I will raise up the Potawatomi, the Ojibwe, Chippewa and Ottawa. Illini, Miami, Shawnee, Dakota Sioux, Chickasaw, Winnebago, Delaware, Kickapoo, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Huron-Wyandot, and Sac-Fox I WILL LIGHT THE FIRE AGAIN. I will take up their cause even as I did David and I will restore what the locust of devoured. “Let the weak say, “I am a warrior!” – Joel 3:10


And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ – Matthew 20:6

Even now I will raise up your sons and daughters and they will herald a greater day; they will not succumb to the lesser and will not drink from cisterns made with human hands. I am the Potter they are the Clay. They will not follow another. They will light the streets on fire and many will come to watch them burn – they will walk in the midst of the fire and I will walk with them. I will beak the snare of the fowler and her captives will go free.

Multitudes amongst the nations will find refuge in your borders Chicago as I create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit within you. The cry of your brother’s blood will cry no longer as I heal your land. A simmering pot of prayer will surely precede these things as intercession fills the sky with expectation.

I will surely restore to you the joy of your salvation. Many will be saved and sent out again as they cry the cry of the missionary: Ask of Me and I will give the heathen as your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth as your possession...” - Psalm 2:8. Kill the fatted calf because your fields will be restored as the Father’s House is filled I will hasten it to come to pass! I will hasten it to come to pass.

“For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate…” – Luke 15:24
