Holy Ghost Invasion
By Ron McGatlin
Awakenings, revivals, renewals, and outpourings have impacted America and many other nations of the world. Yet something different, something much deeper is bringing more change to the nations than anything has in the last one hundred years.
This move is unseen and undetected by people with natural minds and natural eyes. Natural eyes will not see, nor will our natural ears hear, nor will it enter the hearts of natural minded men, the things that God is bringing forth. However, God is now revealing them to those who have laid down their natural lives to worship Him in the true beauty of holiness – to live and walk in His Spirit. This work of God is imparted through His Holy Spirit.
This extreme world-changing move of God will not be on the national news media. For the most part the traditional church systems and large denominations will not be aware of this mostly unseen mighty move of God. Unlike previous moves it will not be recognized as a separate identity or stream or denomination but will flow unseen to affect every heart of every person who is willing and obedient to let their lives become worship in the beauty of holiness.
The Ghost Ship
Several weeks ago I was in the Sprit and was given a powerful spiritual vision. In the vision I knew that I was looking out over the Atlantic Ocean from the coast of North Carolina. It was a very dark night, and the ocean was calm and the surface almost undistinguishable in the darkness of the night. In the distance I saw an ancient style sailing vessel that was aglow with a fire but not like with blazes of flame. It was like a golden glow of fire. I could see several masts and lots of rigging all aglow, but no sails were hoisted to drive the ship.
The ship seemed to be supernaturally gliding rapidly toward the shore line of the outer banks of the east coast of America. I could not even tell for sure that the ship was in the water or gliding above the surface since it moved so swiftly in the darkness without any visible wave action at all.
(At this point I need to let you know that I am originally from Texas and knew almost nothing of the legends or folk lore of the coastal area regarding the many stories of sunken ships, pirates, and tales of ghost ships including one of a flaming sailing vessel. I was completely unfamiliar with legends of ghost ships, etc.)
Back to the vision – As the ship glided closer I could see what looked like glowing beings, like people or angels leaning out over the sides of the ship as if excitedly looking ahead at the shore line they were approaching. I spoke out, “God, what is this thing that looks like a ghost of a ship?” I heard in reply, “It is a HOLY GHOST SHIP.”
I was made aware that there is a sovereign move of the Holy Spirit invading the United States coming in under the cover of darkness to the outer banks of the east coast and moving inland and swiftly across the nation.
In the vision I was then lifted up and saw much of the shoreline. The shore line took on a golden color but not as bright as the ship had been. It was a more metallic golden look as it invaded the coves, peninsulas, and islands of the outer banks and moved on westward. I was aware that the coming of great justice into the land was involved in this move. Places where there had been great historical injustices and atrocities were first to receive the powerful transforming work of the Holy Ghost.
I customarily have used the term Holy Spirit instead of the term Holy Ghost. Since this vision it is in my spirit to return to using the older term of Holy Ghost. I became mildly interested in what the difference might be if any. As we have used the names, there is not a significant difference. Taking a look in the English dictionary at the words “spirit” and “ghost,” there is some difference there. The word “ghost” is defined as a disembodied spirit usually of a departed person. The word “spirit” can refer to many types of spirits. For me now the term Holy Ghost has to do with the Spirit of Christ Jesus coming to abide in His Body on earth. Selah.
The Body of Christ is a place for the Spirit of Christ Jesus and the Father to abide and finish the work of redemption and restoration of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Selah.
The light of the fire of God is gliding into our lives, under the cover of the dark night of this world.
This sovereign move is unseen and undetected in the natural because it is an inner move of God coming in through the darkness of this age. A precious inner working of the fire and light of God filling our hearts and lives with pure holy love, peace, and joy is transforming the intent and the abundance of the heart of those being transfigured by this move. Worship becomes as natural and as vital to life as breathing. Holiness becomes as effortless and refreshing as drinking clean clear cool water. God’s righteousness is imparted into us as the light pours the life-giving Spirit of Christ Jesus into our hearts.
People who have suffered serious injustice in the past are receiving an invasion of God’s healing love and great joy of the Lord. Healing of the spirit, soul, and body is as natural and easy as taking a walk in a well-kept garden at sunrise. God’s love is both peaceful and stimulating drawing us to one another with intense desire to serve and bless one another.
Without effort we truly love God with intense passion and love one another. In this pure holy experience of the invasion of the Holy Ghost into our beings, almost nothing remains the same as it was in the past. Every good thing we have received from God in the past is increased and intensified. One of the most valuable characteristics of the invasion of the Spirit is that the enduring mixtures of religion and secularism are simply vanishing from our being.
Assignments and Alignments are Being Changed
There is not retirement in the kingdom of God. There is instead Holy Ghost’s ”re-fire-ment” for a whole new assignment in the new kingdom of God order of life. Our previous assignments may have been productive and rewarding in our past life in dealing with religion and secularism mixed with true Spirit-led ministry and life in the mercy of God for the past season of transitioning. Many of God’s people are finding their past assignments are being canceled and new assignments are being made by the Holy Ghost.
The new assignments are always LOVE-based instead of based on need or religious order. God’s LOVE in us is the order. What we could not make work with church system order even based on biblical word, will supernaturally flow into order by the pure holy love of God in and among His people.
Our lives may be tested as our souls resist the change and seek to challenge us in adjusting to the new assignment. For some of us the changes may seem abrupt and harsh to our old mind sets. Our nature may be to resist change. Our soul may want to know all the circumstance and details and remain in charge by approving or disapproving the change. We simply must allow the gracious mercy of God to encourage us in His love to fully surrender to that which God is doing. It becomes easy, because the grace of God will make us miserable in our old unchanged situation.
Changes of alignments will come with the change of assignments. It may happen that suddenly places where we were fruitfully connected simply disappear. Relationships that were productive and good seem to suddenly be gone. There may or may not be problems or human disorder, yet the relationship suddenly is just not as it was. At the same time intense love and desire to closely connect with other people or groups or situations arise within us by the Holy Ghost.
Some may have been feeling dissatisfaction in a place of relationship and service. By the Holy Ghost, those feelings will either turn into fresh love and peace, or they will suddenly seem smothering and unbearable until we are realigned in our new situations.
Our new assignments and alignments by the Holy Ghost invasion are part of the preparation for the most significant move of world-cleansing cataclysmic events in recorded history. At the same time the covert invasion of the Holy Ghost is bringing the beauty of holiness in the lives of God’s people, there is an overt power move of God destroying the pride and loftiness of man. Everything that lifts itself against God will be brought down as the natural world is shaken beyond measure.
Living a long comfortable life is not the first priority of our hearts. Living in oneness with God through the Holy Ghost will cause our first priority to be that of fully accomplishing the purposes for which we were sent to this earth.
There is no doubt that we live in a major season of the work of God transforming the world to the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. All of our assignments and alignments in some way relate to our purpose of life on Planet Earth. The purpose for each of our lives is in some way related to the glory of worshipping God in the beauty of holiness.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit – Rom 5:25.

2. This is a New Day of Authority and Power -By Elaine Tavolacci
Not Only in Word, but in Power
“For the Kingdom of God is not in word but in power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20)
We are living in a season of shifting and shaking; experiencing many changes worldwide as well as in our personal lives and ministries. To some people it appears as if the darkness is dominating this world, but then there are those Believers who recognize that small cloud the size of a man’s hand that is rising out of the sea. They know that the days ahead will be glorious times of demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit, just as they had experienced in the book of Acts.
The Lord wants to use every one of us in extraordinary ways; not in word only, but in manifestation of His power through healing, miracles, signs and wonders.
Jesus said in His Word: “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17-18). The glory of the Lord is going to shake many ministries who operate in godliness, but deny the full power of the Spirit.
In the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 2, Paul told the Corinthian Church that he did not come with eloquence of speech or carnal persuasiveness, but with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Paul did not speak mere words of man, but he ministered through demonstration, with miracles, signs and wonders following. When Paul prayed for people they were healed, set free, delivered, and even the dead were raised. He ministered in authority and boldness declaring to the people that their faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
“And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5)
You Are the Chosen Generation—Walk in His Authority!
1 Corinthians 2:9-10, “But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”
The Lord says: “This is a new day. You are the generation who I have chosen to walk in My authority, power and demonstration of My Kingdom on this earth. I am about to release My glory on this earth as it is in Heaven. You have been created for miracles, signs and wonders. I am looking for those who will speak to the mountains, rather than circle the mountains repeatedly.
“I am looking for those who will run the race with endurance and stand strong when the winds and waves of adversity arise. They will be those who will walk on water rather than allowing the waves to overtake them. They are those who will release My light into areas of darkness, and the desire of the wicked will perish as they come into the light. They will drive out the inhabitants of the land as My glory arises within them, comes upon them and moves through them.
“As you allow My Word to sustain you, you will be strengthened beyond your natural abilities. You will no longer be limited in your ways of thinking. You will no longer look to the wisdom of man, but you will understand the truth of My Word. As you trust Me, you will no longer be confused by diverse doctrines.
“Just as Paul threw the viper off into the fire and was unharmed, you also have the authority to throw the vipers off that try to attach themselves to you. You are not mere men and women, but you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation who will release others out of the kingdom of darkness into My marvelous light. As My light is released, the darkness will instantly diminish. This is the day of the demonstration of My glory. This is the divine plan and purpose that I have for you in this season,” says the Lord.
Romans 8:19, “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.”
