On Easter Sunday, Bill Johnson shares a prophetic word from Lou Engle about the coming great communion revival. The death and resurrection of Christ is central to our life of faith as believers, and in this season, the Lord is re-establishing an awareness of the importance of the Cross as we remember Him through communion. More than a religious routine or just a cracker and juice or wine, partaking in communion is partaking of the broken body and Blood of Christ and encountering Him. The power and significance of communion is a message that Beni Johnson carried in her life, and we will see a wave of revival as this reality sweeps across the world, redeeming people from sin and sickness, and restoring them to their Heavenly Father.

I like to take this

bread this wafer


and I like to make sure that I don’t

come to it as a as a cracker

I come to it as the broken body of Jesus

it’s important that I that I make that


then I’m not here just going through a

religious routine I’m actually

encountering the presence of the

almighty God



good morning please

please be seated

Happy Easter

he is risen

he’s risen indeed

yeah you got to get that right

by the way um

Jean-Luc traskell from

Switzerland wonderful wonderful man of

God and a dear friend of mine and of

this house will be speaking next Sunday

night not tonight tonight is baptism and


I’ll be tonight but next Sunday night is

going to be Jean-Luc and he is one of

the most bizarre

literally miracle anointings that I’ve

I’ve ever seen

and uh and he he is his friendship moves

me as does his display of the love of

God and so anyway that’s next Sunday


and and he’s in the school of ministry

too the next day not that you can do

anything about that but just want you to

know what you can’t have

that’s that’s what I do I basically

announce to people what you can’t have



also uh before Christmas I promoted this

book by one of our own Carrie Lloyd it’s

called a legacy letters and it’s about

capturing uh the rich rich Heritage of

of every family it’s asking the

questions you wish you would have asked

a family member before they passed to

capture the the legacy of a family and

uh so I promoted it for Christmas last

December not realizing there weren’t any

copies available

so once again I told you what you

couldn’t have that’s basically that’s my

job as to torment and tease and you know

there were hardly any copies available

and so the publisher just published a

whole bunch more so we’ve got them so I

just wanted to let you know that this is

available really really cool thing to be

a part of who has a family that you

really don’t want written down oh no

that’s not the wrong way the wrong way

wrong way to promote this thing who has

you’re pointing at your husband

anybody want this you know right the the

yeah bronze sure come on up yeah oh sure

sure Merry Christmas yeah Chris’s

anointing was getting on me for a moment

there I uh you know he hands out a book

on spiritual warfare and asks if there’s

anybody demon-possessed that would like

to have it so I don’t know I it just

started to get on me and I’m going to

blame him

since he’s not in the room so

all right

three friends from local congregation

were asked

when you’re in your casket

and friends in congregation members are

mourning over you what would you like

for them to say

Daniel said I’d like for them to say I

was a wonderful husband fine spiritual

leader and a great family man

Roger said I’d like for them to say I

was a wonderful teacher and servant of

God who made a huge difference in

people’s lives

Frank said I’d like for them to say look

he’s moving

that’s just so pitiful that’s that’s I I

am majoring in the pitiful today so

and this is this is what I’ve read many

many times but it’s Easter and I have to

read it today it’s it’s kind of

obligation it’s an obligation

a man and his wife and his mother-in-law

went on vacation to the Holy Land

if you don’t mind hearing old ones again

if they’re good yeah yeah

while they were there the Mother-in-law

passed away

The Undertaker told them you can have

her shipped home for five thousand

dollars or you can bury her here in the

holy land for 150 dollars

the man thought about it he told them he

just who never shipped home

The Undertaker asked why would you spend

five thousand dollars to ship her home

when it would be wonderful to have her

buried here spend only a hundred and

fifty dollars

the man replied A man died here two

thousand years ago

he was buried here three days later he

rose from the dead I just can’t take

that chance

there there is nothing right about that

story but I I like it so much


today’s going to be a little bit

different in this I have been I’ve had

it in my heart for a while now for

probably months to have at some point

where we could share in communion


but do so in light of a prophetic word

from one of our closest most important

friends that’s Lou Engle the Lord had

been speaking to him for this is it now

going back a year

about what he calls the great communion


and at the end of my message we’re going

to show a little video we’re going to

share in communion pray together over

some specific things but my hope my cry

my prayer for us today

is that we would have some

I don’t know some kind of a sense of of

what is upon us as it is connected to

the privilege of sharing in the broken

body in the shed blood of Jesus

I I feel like the Lord’s going to

deposit something in us today and I’ll

be honest with them I’m not coming to

this like fear and trembling I’m coming

not having a plan just having a

conviction if that makes sense I I have

got this since I know what that time

looked like for me uh and Benny uh when

Lou came to our house he flew to our

house I forget where he was in the

country but he flew literally to come to

our home to spend 20 minutes just to

have Benny pray for and for us to share

in communion together
