Several weeks ago we published a prophetic word taken from my
1996 book, 'THE COMING GREAT REFORMATION - New Insights
into the Coming Worldwide Shaking, Reformation and Street 
Revival.'  Below is another prophecy taken from the same book- 

"SMASHING DOWN the WALLS" - by Andrew Strom

"God is going to use this Reformation and Revival to smash down 
the dividing walls that separate the Christians. Jesus has never 
stopped desiring that there be only "one" undivided body. Today, 
however, just amongst the Pentecostal/Charismatic Christians 
alone there are so many divisions, "streams" and denominations 
that it is almost impossible to count them all. Each division has 
it's own `label', and in many ways they operate like competing 
corporations, selling the same "product" under different labels 
(with slight variations)...

God is going to smash down these `walls' in this Revival. How? 
By bringing His people out from underneath all these "labels"! In 
one very significant vision several years ago, a NZ prophet saw 
God firing "flaming arrows" into the churches. These flaming 
arrows were `on-fire' ministries, speaking the word of God. However, 
the Pastors were rushing around trying to damp down the flames! 
God then sent a "mighty wind" to fan the flames, and suddenly 
the doors of the churches burst open and all the people flooded 
out onto the streets to become one huge throng. I believe that this 
is an exact picture of what is about to take place, and in many 
ways it also illustrates the whole concept of "Reformation"...
Another local intercessor was also shown a vision relating to this 
several years ago, while deep in prayer. The first thing she saw 
was church buildings of every kind - stained glass, steeples, plain
and modern, etc. This part of the vision was in black and white. 
The churches all looked abandoned - like a ghost town, with birds 
nesting in them and doors and windows askew, etc. And in each 
church, the intercessor saw a huge old curtain or `veil' that was 
in absolute tatters.

The second part of the vision was all in colour. She saw hundreds 
of Christians outdoors (with guitars, etc) fellowshipping together 
in the open air. She knew that these Christians had abandoned 
their church buildings and `divisions', and were now fellowshipping 
freely out-of-doors. When she asked God what the huge tattered 
curtain in each of the abandoned churches represented, she was 
told that when Jesus was crucified, the veil/curtain in the temple 
was rent, thus allowing the people free access to the `holy of 
holies'. However, the churches had raised up this veil once again. 
But now these structures had been abandoned, thus allowing the 
common people free access to God's holy-of-holies once more. 
What an astounding vision!

There can be no doubt that God desires a loving, militant "street-
level" Church today. After all, isn't that what the early church was 
all about? I believe that it will become common for incredible signs, 
wonders and miracles to be performed on the streets as a result 
of this coming Revival. In fact, I believe that we are about to see 
a demonstration of God's glory in the area of the miraculous that 
will be even more powerful than the book of Acts.

Enormous love, enormous boldness and `joy unspeakable' will be 
just some of the characteristics of this Revival. And everything will 
be bathed in prayer. In fact this Revival is going to be BUILT on 
prayer. As Charles Finney said, "Revival comes from heaven when 
heroic souls enter the conflict determined to win or die... `The 
kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by 
force.'" There is no substitute for faith-filled, Spirit-fired "agonizing"
prayer. Only those who are prepared and praying will be involved 
in this Revival from the beginning. As history shows, great 
blessing can only ever fall when the people of God learn to seek 
His face with all their heart."
