On June 20, I saw in the spirit an earthquake beginning to happen. I looked around to see who was there. The scene went directly to Michelle’s face and I could see her smile with her arms outstretch, giving her balance. There was a joy in the earthquake.
On Friday, June 22, 2018, Kelly said she was hearing the word “midnight.” I began researching for scriptures about “midnight.” These scriptures below had both components of what the Lord was speaking to us. I encourage you to re-read the whole chapter. This event happened directly after Paul delivered the girl from the spirit of divination (python). In the midst of and especially during seasons of pain and suffering, our prayers and worship to God are so vital, not only for our soul health but to the ones in our vicinity. The prayers and worship began to rumble in the foundation of the earth. Dunamis was released in an explosion of power! The prison and “all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.” Not only did it set the other prisoners free (see Isaiah 61 below), the jailer and all his household were saved! For such a time as this, we have been called!
Acts 16 :25-32
25 But about midnight when Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; 26 suddenly there was a great earthquake, so [powerful] that the very foundations of the prison were shaken and at once all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. 27 When the jailer, shaken out of sleep, saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, thinking that the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, saying, “Do not hurt yourself, we are all here!” 29 Then the jailer called for torches and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 and after he brought them out [of the inner prison], he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 And they answered, “Believe in the Lord Jesus [as your personal Savior and entrust yourself to Him] and you will be saved, you and your household [if they also believe].” 32 And they spoke the word of the Lord [concerning eternal salvation through faith in Christ] to him and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their bloody wounds, and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household. 34 Then he brought them into his house and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, since he had believed in God with his entire family [accepting with joy what had been made known to them about the Christ].
Isaiah 61 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Exaltation of the Afflicted
61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me
To bring good news to the humble and afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted,
To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives
And freedom to prisoners,
2 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance and retribution of our God,
To comfort all who mourn,
3 To grant to those who mourn in Zion the following:
To give them a turban instead of dust [on their heads, a sign of mourning],
The oil of joy instead of mourning,
The garment [expressive] of praise instead of a disheartened spirit.
So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God],
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
4 Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up and restore the former desolations;
And they will renew the ruined cities,
The desolations (deserted settlements) of many generations.
