Expect the Supernatural

 

Expect Supernatural Outpourings of the Holy Spirit!

Yesterday I gave attention all day to the study of the Book of Ezekiel for my upcoming 3BI class. I knew Branden and Destanie had invited me to share on their monthly streamed live prayer meeting for the State of California that night and I hadn’t thought about what to share. But just as soon as I stood up from the computer where I’d been working on the study guide, there came to my mind a supernatural outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Russia long ago that affected California. The entire United States of America. The world. And eventually my life for I received the Holy Spirit baptism in 1967 during the Charismatic Movement. I looked to see if I had the details recorded. And I did! I just read from my journals on the live prayer stream what I am copying below.

This is a report of the history of the supernatural. But I also believe we need to be reminded to expect and to pray for the Supernatural outpourings of the Holy Spirit And to believe them when they come!!!!!

 

The Latter Rain Outpouring

Part I

First Showers Fall in Russia

In an oversimplification of a complex subject, this is what I have seen as I have studied so-called church history. It seems to me that people followed the doctrines of Jesus and the Apostles in a simple manner for some 100 years or so. Clearly, though, what Peter foretold happened; false teachers brought in damnable heresies (2 Peter 2:1).

Eventually, Satan, I believe, adopted the “If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em” attitude. In a way, Satan joined the church.

With what grew to be recognized as the church, there was a loss of truth and power. Though there always were believers who followed a simple Gospel, they became a minority and were terribly persecuted by the majority in authority.

The Bible, however, promises restitution of all things. After hundreds of years, the restoration of what the locust, the cankerworm, the caterpillar, and the palmerworm had destroyed in the church began to happen. First the truth of the way of salvation was restored: The just shall live by faith. A restoration of other biblical truths followed, including the truth of divine healing.

One prophesied restoration is biblically described as the latter rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit. (Acts Chapter 2 is the early rain outpouring.) As God began to restore the truth of the baptism with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, the first showers of the latter rain Pentecostal outpouring, that I have been able to trace, fell in Russia.

 

The Leaping Molokans

The Lord caused me to hear of those first showers of the latter rain in an unusual way.

In the 1980’s I preached several times for Pastor Ralph Wilkerson at Melodyland Christian Center in Los Angeles, California.

Something wonderful often happened in the worship services. When the Spirit moved upon him, a tall, dignified gentleman would move out from his seat into the aisle. With his long arms outstretched he would regally swoop with the motions and grace of an eagle down to the altar area of this circular church. As he so danced in the Spirit, a Presence of the Lord went out over the congregation.

I called him “The Flying Eagle.” And I would say to Brother Wilkerson, “I sure hope the eagle flies tonight.”

Once I even dared to walk over to the gentleman before services and I said that to him.

He promptly replied, “Well, he will only if the Spirit moves him.”
So, I slipped back to my seat and silently prayed, “Lord, please have the Spirit move him.” And He did!

Brother Wilkerson told me the man had an unusual story and asked if I would like to hear it. Of course, I was eager to know it. So Brother Wilkerson brought the gentlemen over to the place I was staying after the service.

He told me the story of his family in Russia.
For years his family had the job of cleaning the Orthodox Church buildings. Though Bibles were not available for common folks in the 18th and 19th Centuries, his family had access to the Holy Book when they were cleaning the church.

So they decided to read it. Within its script they could find almost nothing that matched the ritualistic worship of the church. And so they decided to practically follow the Book as closely as they could. For example, they could not find the practice of giving up milk for Lent as the Orthodox Church required. So, they began to drink milk during Lent. That’s how they got their name, the Molokans. Molokans in Russian means milk-drinkers.

Later, they found in the Bible where believers were filled with the Holy Spirit. When the Molokans received this experience, they began to leap and dance with joy. Thereafter, they were known as the Leaping Molokans, or the Holy Jumpers!

 

Holy Spirit Gifts Save Lives
of
Demos Shakarian’s Ancestors

The Molokans brought the news of this experience in the Holy Spirit and His gifts over the mountains to the Armenians dwelling in the foothills of Mount Ararat where Noah’s Ark came to rest. Demos Shakarian, founder of Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, tells the supernatural story in his book, The Happiest People on Earth ¹ (click here to view book). Let’s read it in Demos’ own words:

…Grandfather did not accept right away the strange message that had been trickling over the mountains for nearly fifty years. The message was brought by the Russians. Grandfather liked the Russians all right; he was just too levelheaded to accept their tales of miracles. The Russians came in long caravans…The Armenians had no difficulty understanding them as most of our people spoke Russian too. They listened to the tales of what the Russians called “the outpouring of the Holy Spirit” upon hundreds of thousands of Russian Orthodox Christians. The Russians came as people bringing gifts: the Gifts of the Spirit, which they wanted to share…

In 1900…the news arrived that a hundred Russian Christians were coming over the mountains in their covered wagons. Everyone was pleased. It was the custom in Kara Kala to hold a feast for the visiting Christians… In spite of the fact that he didn’t agree with the “full Gospel” preached by the Russians, Grandfather considered their visits as times set apart for God, and insisted that the welcoming feast be held…in front of his own home…

Grandfather was proud of his fine cattle. With the news that the Russians were on their way, he went out to his herd and looked them over. He would choose the very finest, fattest steer for this special meal.
Unfortunately…the fattest steer…turned out, on inspection, to have a flaw. The animal was blind in one eye.

What should he do? Grandfather knew his Bible well: He knew he should not offer an imperfect animal to the Lord. (Leviticus 22:20.)

What a dilemma! No other animal in the herd was large enough…Grandfather looked around. No one was watching. Suppose he slaughtered the steer and simply hid the blemished head? Yes, that was what he would do! Grandfather led the half-blind steer into the barn, butchered it himself, and quickly placed the head in a sack which he hid beneath a pile of threshed wheat in a dark corner.

Grandfather was just in time, for as he finished dressing the beef, he heard the rumble of wagons coming into Kara Kala…Coming down the dusty road was the familiar caravan of wagons…Beside the driver of the first team, erect and commanding as ever, sat the white-bearded patriarch who was leader and prophet of the group…

Soon the big steer was roasting on a spit…That evening everyone gathered, expectant and hungry, around the long plank tables. Before the meal could begin, however, the food must be blessed.

These Russian Christians would not say any prayer—even grace over meals—until they had received what they called the anointing.
They would wait before the Lord until, in their phrase, the Spirit fell upon them…When this occurred they would raise their arms and dance with joy.

On this occasion, as always, the Russians waited for the anointing of the Spirit. Sure enough…first one and then another began to dance in place…Soon would come the blessing of the food, and the feast could begin.

But to Grandfather’s dismay, the patriarch suddenly raised his hand—not in sign of blessing—but as a signal that everything was to stop. Giving Grandfather a strange penetrating look, the tall white-haired man walked from the table without a word.

…The prophet strode across the yard and into the barn. After a moment he reappeared. In his hand he held the sack which Grandfather had hidden beneath the pile of wheat…the patriarch placed the telltale sack before Grandfather and let it fall open, revealing to everyone the head with the milk-white eye.

“Have you anything to confess, Brother Demos?” the Russian asked.

“Yes, I have,” said Grandfather, shaking. “But how did you know?”
“God told me,” the old man said simply. “You still do not believe that He speaks to His people today as in the past. The Spirit gave me this word of knowledge for a special reason; that you and your family might believe. You have been resisting the power of the Spirit. Today is the day you will resist no longer.”

It was the beginning of great changes in our family’s life, and one of the first was a change in attitude toward Kara Kala’s most famous citizen. This person was known…as the “Boy Prophet” even though at the time of the incident with the steer’s head the Boy Prophet was 58 years old.

…Efim Gerasemovitch Klubniken…had a remarkable history. He was of Russian origin, his family being among the first Pentecostals to come across the border, settling permanently in Kara Kala. From earliest childhood Efim had shown a gift for prayer, frequently going on fasts, praying around the clock.

…Efim Gerasemovitch Klubniken…had a remarkable history. He was of Russian origin, his family being among the first Pentecostals to come across the border, settling permanently in Kara Kala. From earliest childhood Efim had shown a gift for prayer, frequently going on fasts, praying around the clock.

…What Efim was able to do during those 7 days was not so easy to explain.

Efim could neither read nor write. Yet, as he sat in the little stone cottage in Kara Kala, he saw before him a vision of charts and a message in a beautiful handwriting. Efim asked for pen and paper…for 7 days he laboriously copied down the form and shape of letters and diagrams that passed before his eyes.

When he had finished, the manuscript was taken to people in the village who could read… This illiterate child had written out in Russian characters a series of instructions and warnings. At some unspecified time in the future, the boy wrote, every Christian in Kara Kala would be in terrible danger. He foretold a time of unspeakable tragedy for the entire area, when hundreds of thousands…would be brutally murdered. The time would come…when everyone in the region must flee. They must go to a land across the sea…the Boy Prophet drew a map showing exactly where the fleeing Christians were to go. …The body of water depicted so accurately in the drawing was not the nearby Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, or even the Mediterranean, but the distant…Atlantic Ocean!… The map plainly indicated the east coast of the United States of America.

But the refugees were not to settle down there, the prophecy continued. They were to continue traveling until they reached the west coast of the new land. There, the boy wrote, God would bless them and prosper them, and cause their seed to be a blessing to the nations.

…A little after the turn of the century, Efim announced that the time was near for the fulfillment of the words he had written down nearly 50 years before. “We must flee to America. All who remain here will perish.”

The instructions proved correct. In 1914 a period of unimaginable horror arrived for Armenia.

[Beginning in 1914 Muslim Turks enacted genocide against Armenians and massacred at least 1.5 million. Every inhabitant of Kara Kala died.]

Those who had heeded the warning of the Boy Prophet and sought asylum in America heard the news with dismay. Grandfather Demos was among those who fled. After his experience with the Russian patriarch, Grandfather no longer discounted the validity of prophecy. In 1905 he sold the farm which had been in his family for generations… The family reached New York safely but, mindful of the prophecy, did not settle there. In accordance with the written instructions they kept traveling across the vast new land, until they reached Los Angeles…One day it happened that Grandfather and his brother-in-law…were walking down San Pedro Street in Los Angeles, looking for work in the livery stables. As they passed a side road called Azusa Street they stopped short. Along with the smell of horses and harness leather came the unmistakable sounds of people praising God in tongues. They had not known that anywhere in the United States were people who worshiped as they did…Grandfather and Magardich returned (home) with the news that Pentecost had come even to this distant land across the sea.

When Demos Shakarian’s grandparents received the baptism with the Holy Spirit and changed their attitudes toward the gifts of the Spirit it saved their lives—and ultimately the life of their grandson and the great work of FGBMFI and its effect on the Charismatic Outpouring of the Holy Spirit which changed the world.

As I read this on the streamed prayer meeting last night, it came to me how at the first of the 20th Century the Azusa Street outpouring sprang from California, and then in the 1960s and 1970s The Charismatic Movement sprang forth from California through Demos Shakarian. When we had our Secrets of Intercession in Los Angeles in 1983 we heard the Spirit say, “The Rain will fall first where it fell last. The fires will burn first where they burned last.” So I know Branden and Destanie Brim, and all the others who are praying for an outpouring in California and indeed in all the United States of America are doing so in the will of God. You can join them online at www.HisNameMinistries.com. (Click here to view event)

But also I want to point out, that we will be seeing much of the supernatural operation of the Gifts of the Spirit. In fact, we are seeing it now in our weekly prayer calls, and our Wednesday noon prayer.

      Praise God forevermore! I received the bsptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues at a FGBFI breakfast in Anaheim, California sometime in the mid 70s so I thank God for those Russians that crossed the mountains and took the Gospel to Ksra Kala!

    May I ask a question? As I was filled thru the Catholic Charismatic Renewal I am puzzled… I was not Catholic but because of friends I was invited so I went through The Life In The Spirit Training For 7 weeks to receive the Baptism of The Holy Spirit! On 18th of April, 1974, I received and it entirely changed my life!, There were all denominations that came and it was awesome,, We met in the Carmelite Monastery, Jackson,Ms. Anyway, I thought that Norte Dame had a massive Charismatic Outpouring ? Thus I thought it originated there?
    Of course I read his book years ago and was very involved with Full Gospel Meetings!,
    I am certainly not arguing But would sincerely like to know!!, Thank you so much!, of course it changes nothing, just information for me!

      Ms. Wnders –
      My reply ended up below my comment post instead of below yours.
      The Catholics did have quite an outpouring over 50 years ago–God looks at hearts over doctrines. (More below)

      Dr. Billye Brim on May 29, 2021 at 2:44 pm

      Though the Catholic part of the Charismatic Renewal was marvelous, and such an important factor, the outpouring did not originate there.

      Of course it originated with the Lord. And the primary factor He used to get all denominations together was Full Gospel Business Men’s Intl headed up by Demos Shakarian.
      I actually had a private meal with Demon in his latter years where he shared with me the night the Lord took him in spirit all over the world and showed him this move.
      The same night, he said, his wife Rose was playing the organ. And Tommy Hicks was in the guest bedroom of his home having his famous vision another time. (He saw this vision more than once.)
      Tommy Hicks was a part of the Argentine revival

    Such an anointing on this blog shared with us! We of the Charismatic Revival, young and old, were so blessed and privileged to be a part of that movement of the Holy Spirit, and, desiring with every fiber of our being to be a part of the Holy Spirit moving across America and the whole world even now! Holy Spirit, Heavenly Father, Mighty Savior, we expect miracles as we pray impossible-in-the-natural, simple prayer request.

    Phil Freeman on May 28, 2021 at 4:24 pm

    Having read portions of this story before, it’s refreshing to hear it again. May California experience the miracle moment movement that only God can give. The “Hundred Years Prophecy” given in 1910 at Azusa and confirmed across the continent on the East Coast is God’s business, regarding its fulfillment.

    The outpouring has already started in Northern California with Evangelist Mario Murillo. He has held several tent meetings, the largest in Modesto, Ca. But with all there has been a tremendous number of first time salvations and then several healings. His last meeting was not in a tent but outdoor on the soccer field of William Jessup University in Rocklin, CA. There was 4,000 chairs – all filled with an overflow. Next is Sacramento in August 2021. It is amazing and I am so thrilled that Brandon and Destiny are involved. Will contact them directly. Thank you for keeping us updated and for sharing your wonderful experiences.

    I enjoyed this blog! Amazingly, this morning (before I read anything in the blog) I was on a local prayer conference call, and saw like a flash before my eyes–a vision of my husband (who is not born again) with his arms lifted and stretched out like airplane wings. He was making motions like he was flying–but I did not associate it with an eagle till I just read this! Wow! Also our grandson recently became an Eagle Scout and is planning on giving us Eagle pins on Father’s Day. My husband Al used to be a marathon runner so we have an artwork with the Is. 40:31 scripture about the eagle. Now he is 74 and has had one knee replaced and the other knee I pray for regularly for a miracle to replace the cartilage, as he limps in pain. He has been holding out on surgery because it is difficult to kneel on an artificial knee, so he’s been letting me pray for him to be healed to maintain that capacity. Today my faith has been stirred by this blog–that the Lord will let him have a “second wind” to “mount up with wings as an eagle” and to have his “youth renewed like the eagle”! Glory to God–Thank you !♡♡♡

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful history!! I believe the prophecy is being fulfilled as we speak. Mario Murillo has been conducting POWERFUL meetings in California and the number of salvations and deliverances taking place among the young people and gang members is astounding! How exciting to know we too have a great part to play as God uses us to reach the lost and hurting. We were truly born for such a time as this!! I’m excited!!! And I appreciate you and your ministry more than words can say!

    I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1977 during the Catholic Charismatic Renewal too. It was powerful and changed my life too! When I read John 17 for the first time I cried as it impacted me with Jesus’ own words expressing His love and desire for unity among all His people. Yes–as you said, during those days all the various denominations that flowed in the power of the Holy Spirit met together in wonderful Charismatic prayer meetings. One of the earliest Catholic outpourings was at Duquesne University in 1967. CBN did a wonderful story commemorating the 50 year anniversary of it.

    I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost after a friend of my mother’s came home after a Katherine Kuhlman meeting in Pittsburgh, saying, “You have to have this!” I was 16. We started going to Full Gospel Businessman’s Meetings in Greensburg, PA and surrounding areas in the 1960’s . We were going to a Methodist church then, but also went to other services, including with a Catholic Priest from Steubenville, Ohio. Remarkable times. I saw a woman healed of cancer, and I was healed of a broken elbow. I learned about laying on of hands from a Lutheran minister.

    Peter Pritchard on May 28, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    I was born again at a Healing Mass arranged by the CCR. As I entered the church I started to weep. I wept the whole service . I received prayer at a call. I ceased crying. Leaders came to me and spoke into my life and was born again. I cried for weeks at prayer meetings. My wife was born again soon after. That has split our family . We moved into AOG after trying to share our gifts to no avail. At 69 I was invited to pastor a church . Twelve years later I’m still there.
    Billye, your teaching re HOLY SPIRIT moving in such exciting ways has lifted me up. I have a brother in California who truly speaks vehemently against me.
    I pray many read this and are swept up in California to a massive revival only the Holy Spirit can bring . I pray that seed sown in the past will produce huge orchards of fruit … souls . How exquisite is Gods timing in all things. Peter

    Thanks Ms Billye for this wonderful blog! It helps me to understand why the enemy is so occupied trying to put this places ( California and Russia) as his own when they belong to God, places and people that were available and willing to obey GOD and were searching for the Truth. I have learned about California with you and Brother Brandon, and now about Russia. Thanks for teaching us, thanks for your obedience. My heart is full of thanksgiving to God, to Him be all the glory.

In his hand he held the sack which Grandfather had hidden beneath the pile of wheat…the patriarch placed the telltale sack before Grandfather and let it fall open, revealing to everyone the head with the milk-white eye.

    “Have you anything to confess, Brother Demos?” the Russian asked.

    “Yes, I have,” said Grandfather, shaking. “But how did you know?”
    “God told me,” the old man said simply. “You still do not believe that He speaks to His people today as in the past. The Spirit gave me this word of knowledge for a special reason; that you and your family might believe. You have been resisting the power of the Spirit. Today is the day you will resist no longer.” A POWERFUL WORD THANK YOU

    Been reading the Blogs and they’ve all been insightful however, this particular one I believe should be re-read several times ; I strongly believe every person who will read it God has a message for us. These are not the days we just read and move on; read this with a purpose, God what are you saying to me, to us we are willing change our minds and agree with you and your plans for the times we live in. Amen.

    In about 1979, my first wife and I were invited by a Canadian cattleman to visit during a conference put on by the f.b.m.f.i. He owned the only land up there with natural artesian wells with semmental cattle grazing on the land. Being an officer in that Canadian chapter up there he invited us to the after service room where the leaders and speakers could get together. I spotted the late Brother Demos Shakarian walking down the hall way to his room. Being so late at night and he being up in years, I just could not find it in me to bother him after a long service. Even though our cattleman host and Demos have moved to heaven, I shall always cherish our Canadian spritual kin folk and who knows;maybe a great move of Holy Spirit will first blossom in the great north! The book,”The happiest people on earth ” is both funny and informative. I encourage folks to read it. Thankyou sister Billye for bringing this piece of important history to light. Who would have known, that the little country of Armenia was and is a powerful influence upon other nations. I have always thought that there must be a special grace upon people groups that have suffered and became martyrs such as the Armenians and holocaust survivors.

    Billye, had to come again and re-read this blog. Brought back wonderful memories as I was HS baptized in Germany in 1969 & returned to the states soon after as my husband went on to Viet Nam. I found Kenneth Hagin’s little book, Praying to Get Results. He was my foundation from then on. I found my way to FGBM and heard Demos & many speakers and soaked it up like a sponge. I also went to AOG church & on to a tent meeting where I met my miracle working mentors. God sent me to Africa where I saw true religion at a FGBM meeting in JoBerg, all races together (Also in Reinhardt Bonnke’s meetings). How dear those people all over the world were to me. Interestingly enough Billye, I was in Israel same year as the story you told about your “tour” April 1986. We were there March 1986 when God said, this is where I want you so I returned home to prepare. Went back to Israel in 1987 for a few years. I knew you were there studying Hebrew and so wanted to go find you. ha ha I did study but, in Jaffa. Like so many I first knew you with Gloria Copeland, teaching on TV. For a long time I tried to find Prayer Mountain but, I don’t think it was started yet but, God is so good and I found you, yes I did. Words fail to tell the joy to be involved in your prayer calls and Wed meeting at such a time as this in our country. You speak my language when you talk about Bro Hagin and tell the old old stores about the faith builders. You and your family are so much fun and I sure do laugh, cry, intercede in tongues. What God is doing with Max is glorious. Thank you I can be a part of what God has called you to do. I feel so special God has called me to be a part of your supernatural prayer walk. Many years ago I would weep and say, Father don’t let me miss your last great move. How I praise Him because I’m smack dab in the middle of it.
