Fire Over France

 
By Chad Taylor
 
 
I saw a pillar of holy fire over France and the Lord said, 'I will burn with My glory over France.  I will remember the words of former prophecies from centuries ago and now they will burn.  They will burn like a city upon a hill that cannot be hid.  They will burn like a pillar of fire by night and pillar of smoke by day.  It will lead My people from Captivity.  IT will cast the rider and the horse into the sea and My people will surely be set free.'
 
I saw stars falling from the sky and hitting Paris France and the Lord said, 'I will send My messengers and harvesting angels to this city.  They will put in the sickle for the harvest is ripe.  They will position My church in this city for harvest and revival.  They will upset ancient principalities and open the leaved gates.  Thus says the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut... (Isaiah 45:1).
 
I saw the city burning and the sea reflecting its glory and the Lord said, 'I will burn with such an intensity from this place it will be seen from across the sea and they will be in awe.  The lowly and the famous shall come to this place to worship Me.  I will be lifted up and then draw all to Myself.  And like the sea I will cover this place with My glory.  Kings and those in high place shall now turn and be saved.  Those with royal blood and the blood of those that once conquered will now bow their knee to Me and be saved.  This is the hour that I will light a fire in Paris France says the Lord.
 
I saw a generation of youth on fire like torches in the Lord's hand and then the Lord said, 'I will capture the hearts of France's youth.  I will ravish their heart and take them into the secret place, the holy place.  They will take up the sword of My Spirit and win nations.  They will cross land and seas for Me to set the captives free.  They will be gallant and do exploits.  For this is the destiny of the Lord for My seed in France, "Before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations" O France.  I called you and set you aside.  (Jeremiah 1:5).
 
I saw a storm forming over France with lightning and thunder and the Lord said, 'A storm of political controversy is forming over France, but from this storm they will see the Lord upon the water and they will cry out to Me.  From this storm of controversy they will cry out to Me and I will hold their hand and lift them up from the storm.  I will lift them up and save them.  For I remember the covenants I made with their forefathers, and I will surely give them the land that I promised their forefathers.  I will surely give them the land says the Lord.  I will surely give them back the land.
 
I saw a mighty river coming out of France filling the sea and then the Lord said, 'A mighty river of revival will come from this place.  A mighty river that will water Africa, that will sustain nations and cities.  A river that will rush through America reminding her of her first love.  A river that will bridge the gap between nations and churches creating an atmosphere for My glory.  Out of France's belly will flow river's of living water.   Out of France's belly rivers of living water and the nations will be healed.
 
PREPARE YOURSELF O FRANCE!  THE FIRE OF MY GLORY IS UPON YOU AND THE DAY OF THE LORD HAS DRAWN NIGH!

This word was originally released June 20th of 2001.  This particular prophecy was brought to my attention after the world news had been reporting recently on the historic rioting springing up all over the nation of France.  This rioting was instigated by a group of teen-agers and is fueled by the youth.  Notice the sentence in the prophecy below, "I saw a generation of youth on fire like torches in the Lord's hand and then the Lord said, 'I will capture the hearts of France's youth..."  French Prime Minister De Villepin told world news sources, "the rioting is the result of France's failure to provide hope to thousands of youths..."  Again in the prophetic word below, "A storm of political controversy is forming over France, but from this storm they will see the Lord upon the water and they will cry out to Me..."  Please pray earnestly over the word below first released in 2001 and speak France's destiny and that the heart of her youth would be ablaze for Jesus...
