Chiefs Won Again: What Is God Saying?

Last Sunday night, I stayed up until 4am to watch the Kansas City Chiefs win the Super Bowl for the 3rd time in recent years, by a final touchdown and passing for 333 yards in total, and the number of the venue was 3333. The Lord has been touching my heart about this since then.

In 2020, the Lord woke me up at 3:33 am on February 3 to the news that the Chiefs won for the first time in fifty years. And it happened on the 33rd day of the year, with 333 days remaining in the year. The Lord had already been touching my heart about Jeremiah 33:3 at that point, so all the 3s became a confirmation.

“Call to Me, and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” — Jeremiah 33:3

Before Bob Jones passed away in 2014, he prophesied that when the Chiefs win the Super Bowl, it will be a sign that revival is near, and God is raising up “Apostolic chiefs.” But beyond the hype around a game, what is He really saying?

God doesn’t need to win a football game to bring revival. Instead, He saw this day long ago and knew they would win, and He chose to speak about it as a time marker, saying, “When you see the Chiefs win, pay attention to what I’m about to do.”

Revival is also not triggered by a football game, but by repentance and crying out to God. Which means in order to bring about revival, God would have to orchestrate things to produce this kind of cry which didn’t exist before.

It was interesting that after the 2020 game, instead of revival as we understood it, Covid came. All kinds of weaknesses were exposed in the Church. It was messy, but God knew what He was doing, and a remnant began to repent and cry out.

Then came last year, the Chiefs won again; and revival broke out in Asbury University. But it didn’t turn into a Third Great Awakening many anticipated. Instead, pockets of 24/7 worship broke out in numerous places. Much like what the International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) in Kansas City had done for 24 years, except God started them sovereignly as the manifest glory of God was strong and tangible that people did not want to leave. I believe it was a foretaste of what’s coming; but in hindsight, I also believe God had His finger on the prayer movement, saying, “This one needs some dealing.”

Last Sunday, the Chiefs won again — for the 3rd time, passing for 333 yards in a venue numbered 3333. Meanwhile, ugly and shocking things are being exposed at IHOPKC about their founder, things which I need not repeat. God is dealing with the prayer movement. I believe the weight and magnitude of what’s coming that involves 24/7 prayer and the manifest kavod (glory) of God will require the prayer movement to be pure; for undealt sin in the camp either causes the glory to depart (1 Sam 4:21), or the glory will cause the unrepentant to die (Acts 5:1-10). The fear of the Lord must return to the camp. The days of sweeping things under the rug are over.

In January this year, our Watchman Hub went on a 21-day fast. Several of us started early and went from the 2nd to the 22nd, for Daniel 2:22: “He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.” We were believing for the Spirit of Revelation to uncover things hidden in darkness. After the fast, more disturbing things were uncovered that are shaking the foundation of what much of the current prayer movement is built upon.

But now, the Lord is moving from “222” to “333” — “Call to Me, and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3). While “222” uncovers hidden things in the earthly realm, “333” reveals mysteries of God hidden in the heavenly realm. I believe the mystery is His wisdom and way of leadership in times of shaking, and it’s not hidden ‘from’ us, but ‘for’ us. Things that are impossible to know except by the Spirit of God He wants us to know. All we have to do is call to Him and ask. This is a word for the prophets, watchmen, and intercessors.

In Jeremiah 33, Jerusalem is under siege. God was about to raise up the Babylonians to punish Judah for their sins. In the midst of this, Jeremiah was caught up in this divine narrative as the Lord shows him His plan: in His wisdom, He orchestrates a siege, a takeover, and an exile, so that His people can ultimately cry out in repentance and return to their God. The trouble is not the end, but He says, “I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel… I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive… and this city shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations…” (Jeremiah 33:7-9)

This is His narrative over America and Europe right now as He speaks Jeremiah 33:3 over the prophets. The nations are under siege; and soon, Islamic jihad will overtake you. But He is inviting His people to call to Him and behold the wisdom of His leadership, and see that beyond desolation there is hope; beyond judgment there is healing; and beyond pain there is restoration.

To IHOPKC, God says, “Your desolation is not the end.” (Let the reader understand.) “Soon, I will wipe the inscription ‘Ichabod’ from your door, My glory will return in your midst, and I will fill My church with glory.”

To the prayer movement, the Lord says, “Joshua the High Priest will receive a new garment. I will silence the voice of the accuser and place My rod of authority upon you as I did with My servant Moses.”

To families across America and Europe who have suffered desolation, pain and loss, the Lord is speaking purpose into you again. He says, “I will restore, and the glory of your latter years will far surpass that of your former years.”

Thank you for sharing Frank. It certainly puts a lot more flesh on the bones some of us might have been feeling. I praise God for His faithfulness and wisdom in showing us how to posture ourselves in these challenging times for this coming Revival. The word coming out of our times of intercession and prayer has consistently been about sin in the camp and a call to repentance and holiness. As someone who is part of the prayer movement, I sense a deeper call to His righteous ways which is only produced by His Spirit and spending time at His feet. shabbat shalom.

Thanks for this clear and encouraging word Frank. As the shaking goes on it is good to be developing clear perspective on it especially in order to intercede in the right way. In some ways it’s a relief to read it and I believe it is a help in knowing how to position ourselves. Shabbat shalom.
