"God Is Raising Up a Generation That Will See the Waters Part!"
By Andrew Towe
I had an encounter with the Lord while in prayer one night. He said to me, "There is a revival of purity that is being birthed. The
old wineskins cannot contain the new wine of revival that I am releasing. I am raising up a NEW GENERATION that will carry My presence, and they will see the waters part. Only those with clean hands and pure hearts will ascend to My high places. The ones who
will cry unto Me, I will answer them. The hungry ones shall feast. The thirsty ones shall drink.
"Now is the time that I will carry My Church across the threshold, even as a groom carries his bride through
the entry way into a NEW BEGINNING. The Bride of Christ is now entering a NEW SEASON of the supernatural. Awakening and revival are here! Watch and see the display of My great power. My Kingdom is not in word only, but in power! I am choosing a NEW BREED of
watchmen who will be the keepers of the gate. They will not permit compromise to pollute this pure move."
How to Prepare for Signs & Wonders
the Book of Joshua, he commanded the people of Israel, "'...Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you'" (Josh. 3:5). He was commanding that the people prepare themselves for a mighty move of God. This is the season that we are in
today. God is calling us to prepare for signs and wonders.
"And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest
in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon a heap." (Josh. 3:13)
There is a new generation of priests unto
the Lord that will carry His presence, and when the soles of their feet hit the waters, they will part. God is searching for leaders who will live in obedience to Him and lead His people through the overflowing waters of impossibility into the Promised Land.

"And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people
were passed clean over Jordan." (Josh. 3:17)
Take note of how the priests who lived then walked in God's wondrous power. The Lord strongly spoke to me regarding the contrast of the priests of Joshua's
day, who walked in consecration and power, and the priests of Eli's day, who walked in sin and were powerless. God has begun a cleansing in the house of God and its governmental leadership.
Between Samuel & the Sons of Eli
Eli was the high priest to whom Hannah gave her child Samuel to raise. Samuel was the last judge to rule Israel before the nation changed its form of government to
one of a monarchy. From childhood, Samuel witnessed the wickedness of the priests (Eli's sons) who served in the temple, but instead of becoming like them, he chose a life of purity and eventually became one of Israel's greatest prophets. Moreover, through
Samuel, a great revival was birthed.
"Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord." (1 Sam. 2:12)
Sadly, Eli's sons, Hophni and
Phinehas, knew not the Lord, yet there they were officiating as priests. And Eli failed to stop his sons from desecrating God's sanctuary.
"Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all
Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation." (1 Sam. 2:22)
When someone would bring an offering to the Lord, they would demand the best meat
for themselves before the offering was made, which was contrary to God's direction, and meant that they stole from God that which was dedicated to Him. They also were impure sexually, committing fornication with women in the Tabernacle. The wickedness of Hophni
and Phinehas was so great that God vowed to remove Eli's evil lineage, thus stopping all his descendants from ever being priests. "Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the Lord: for men abhorred the offering of the Lord" (1 Sam. 2:17).
It was during this time that the Philistines came to battle against Israel, and they killed 4,000 Israelite soldiers. The army, in utter defeat and in complete desperation, called for the ark that
had been their key to their triumph in the days of Joshua.
"...Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it comes among us, it may save us out of the hand of our
enemies." (1 Sam. 4:3)
Israel believed the ark alone would secure their victory, but they were mistaken. The priests had become unholy and wicked which resulted in the people becoming the same. When Hophni
and Phinehas brought the ark from Shiloh, all of Israel shouted, but their praise was empty noise. The battle pursued with the ark in their midst, and yet Eli's sons were killed, and the ark was captured. This is a picture of those who refuse to walk in purity,
which causes them to lose the anointing, and finally are destroyed.
A Move Birthed by Those Who Walk in Purity
The Spirit of the Lord is saying today,
"This next move of God will be birthed by those walking in purity. I will allow them to steward My presence, and they will indeed be a generation that will see the waters part. Even the soles of their feet will carry the same power that the priests of Joshua's
day had upon them when they crossed the Jordan. Get ready for the cleansing of My house and for My wonder working power to be released upon the earth."
