"We are in a reset. Why do we see all this going on now? It's because awakening and change and revival is on the way."
I asked Dr. Collins what he felt God is saying to the church right now. His prophetic word is a prescription for revival.
"I believe there are some areas God is awakening His church to pray like never before; to see revival in this Ezekiel moment. It's to prophesy—that was the solution for revival. What did God tell Ezekiel? Prophesy. God knew that the bones could live, but He needed the breath, the ruach. So the breath is in the church, the body of Christ, that holds the breath of God in our nostrils and the Word of God in our mouth to release revival and awakening and a reformation. There are three things God began to speak to me very prophetically about this:
—"This is a time of repentance for the body of Christ at large. Whether it's racial hate, or all these things in our heart, we have to resolve that, we have to get that together and bring healing. We must repent because there is a shift that is coming. When we repent, God wants to heal our land. There is healing about to release if those who are called by His name will humble themselves and seek His face and turn from their wicked ways. He will hear from heaven and forgive us and heal our land. Repentance is a turning for the church, but the world needs to come to Jesus. I believe that's what's happening.
—"This is a time of rest. Some of us have complained about being quarantined and feeling isolated, but it's a time to seek Him. It's a time to readjust, to reevaluate our passions, to be creative and innovative and birth out new things. He wanted to give us a time of necessary rest.
—"This is a time of reset. It's a hard reset. It's not just a restart, but a reset. It's like your iPhones: If it's acting up, you might have to restart it. But if the problem persists, then you have to go to the settings and press that reset button. And what that reset button does, it goes and it purges out and it takes it back to the original, manufactured way, like a new, fresh again—back to the original settings when you first got your phone. We are in a reset! We are! Why do we see all this going on now? It's because awakening and change and revival [are] on the way. So don't stop praying. Love, forgive and rest, and watch God do some supernatural things like never before."
