Historical Perspective – Apostolic and Prophetic Hub in Northern California – Harvest Rock Pasadena, The Call, Morningstar Ministries, Kansas City IHOP, Redding Little Country Church and the Move of God in Shasta County.
Bethel Church in Redding California is a core component of North State (Shasta County specifically) dislodgement out of poverty, drugged-out confusion and progressive homosexual urban center cultural agendas also known as the spirit of the world. Bethel’s rise and emphasis on healing (Bethel Healing Rooms / SOZO Healing & Deliverance) and prophetic supernatural ministry in Redding ideally targets the flat-line lawless individualism of secularism. How? Because of an emphasis on healing and freedom in the Holy Spirit to develop, know and express the gifts and the call of God through the love of Jesus Christ in healing and prophetic community of saints and relationships within and “on earth as it is in heaven” signs and wonders to the desperate and dark dwellers on the earth without.
God is moving chess pieces around. Redding’s reputation as poverty-flats outpost on the way to Oregon and Idaho; super-heated in the Summer thermal layers of the Shasta Basin, attracting the criminals, drug-addicts, homeless “tweakers”, who frequent the areas of Churn Creek Ave. and the Dana Drive Redding Walmart property provides the perfect backdrop for the light to shine in the darkness. In fact, the “Redding Gold” Johnny Enlow spoke of in his recent prophetic word is the salvation, healing, and regenerative work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of people. California Culture / Kingdom Culture
1. Bethel, by the way, just didn’t suddenly appear from nowhere. The current apostolic-prophetic resurgence has years of historical development through what took place at North Valley Baptist Church and Pastor Royal Blue on Hartnell Ave. in the 70’s and 80’s with Jerry Falwell (Moral Majority), KVIP Redding, California – Christian Radio, Shasta Bible College and The Good News Rescue Mission.
(Morningstar Ministries during a rare Winter snowfall in the Ft. Mill, SC facility. Formerly the PTL / Heritage USA property.)
2. Mass migrations of prophetic sojourners, God-seekers, hungry for Jesus occur about every 10-15 years. The examples of this are certainly in the Jesus Movement of the early 70’s. A more recent example is 1991 to present rise of what fueled much of where Bethel is today. Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, Lou Engle and The Call events from 2000 to the LA 2016 AZUSA NOW, The Brownsville Revival, The Toronto Blessing, Mike Bickle and IHOP (Kansas City House of Prayer) and of course the 2006 resurgence of Rick Joyner’s Charlotte, NC MorningStar Ministries. Mass migrations of people in the Body of Christ. Chess pieces relocated, lined up, trained and seasoned.
3. People are also being moved OUT OF where they are not supposed to be. That is also a lesson learned by experiencing first-hand spiritual and geographical resettlement. Some people are simply removed by the hand of God because they are not supposed to be in a particular place at a particular time; i.e. prophetic predators, narcissistic jezebel ministry targeting, etc. It’s fascinating to watch.
4. Redding, CA and Shasta County host a fantastic array of highly strategic churches. Bethel is not the only move of God in town. Little Country Church ( otherwise known as the very large Calvary Chapel of Redding), Neighborhood Church, Risen King, Valley Christian Fellowship on Rancho Rd. by the Redding Airport, Redding Christian Fellowship on Victor Ave. and a largely unknown but deeply embedded in the move of the Holy Spirit in Shasta, Trinity and Tehama Counties is Pastor Paul Tilley’s Faith Assembly Redding on Airport Road.

Redding is about to experience an amazing resurgence in the moral dignity of the community. Finally, Bethel’s Alabaster Prayer House is a largely unknown 24 / 7 prayer furnace altering the regional spiritual landscape.
