The New Breed
Prophecy by Kenneth E. Hagin during Prayer Seminar on February 17, 1975
The Word of the Lord came unto me further saying:
Prophesy thou unto this people and say thou unto them: Like a mighty army, like a mighty army, like the tramping of a mighty army, the forces of evil are tramping down the road to Armageddon. Yea, like a mighty army gathering force as it goes, joined on one hand by these people and on that hand, the other hand, by other people. The army of the enemy is marching on. Marching on, though they know not where. Marching on, for they march in spiritual darkness and there is no light in the tenement of their dwelling. Even in their spirits, for their spirits lie in darkness, and they are under the control of the wicked one.
But be not fearful of the tramping, tramping, tramping of the armies of the wicked. Be not fearful of the sound of war. Be not fearful of anything that the eye can see or the hand can feel or that which is brought to you through the ear gate of this evil world. But look ye into the Word. Yea, into the perfect law of liberty.
And know ye this, that the Lord has an army. Yea, He is preparing His own. No! The church will not grow weaker and weaker and weaker and lie down and expire. But she shall grow stronger and stronger and stronger, for a fresh visitation of heaven is at hand. Yea, a new revelation of truth shall burst forth in all of its glory unto those who are called by His Name. And they shall realize that in their grasp, in their hand all the while, was that mighty Name that is above every name. And they, with that Name upon their lips and with faith in their hearts, will speak forth unto the enemy and say, “Thus far shall ye go and no further.” And he shall desist in his maneuvers, and stop in his operations.
And the hand of the enemy shall be stayed. And the harvest that is to be reaped shall be reaped. For the harvest is plenteous, and the laborers are few. Pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest.
And so men — yea, if you please, some would call them a “NEW BREED” — shall rise up and go forth. They shall not be afraid of the devil. They shall have no fear of men, but with boldness shall they speak and shall challenge the very strongholds of the devil. And there shall be a great shaking. But those who are settled in upon the Rock of Ages shall stand and shout above the storm. And see above the darkness the might of God breaking on the horizon of time and they shall be reflectors of that Light that shall shine forth into the darkness.
And the blinded eyes of Satan’s kin shall be opened by men. Men inspired of God, equipped by the Spirit, called by the Lord. Set in the Body of Christ to shine, to testify, to preach, to minister. And so, like a giant, that Body shall rise, shall shake off those things which would hinder and break asunder the bonds of tradition and religion that has them bound. And go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy. And the blind to see both spiritually and physically. And there shall sound throughout the land the cry and the hue of “Hosanna to the Lord! Hallelujah! Great is His Name and greatly to be praised.”
And the last souls shall have been won. And the last spirit shall have been saved. And that Body shall have been completed. And then the cry shall come forth, “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet Him.” And in the ages to come, eons upon eons, that Body of believers shall show forth His glory and majesty forever and forever.
