The annual Global Leadership Summit (2013) convened Monday night in Los Angeles with some of the worlds’ prominent Pentecostal leaders under the invitation of Rev. David Andrade. They came from North, Central and South America, the Middle and Far East, Africa and India, representing all races.
The unexpected guest speaker at the Global Leadership Summit on Tuesday night was Verna Linzey who had just returned from a crusade in Trenton, New Jersey where revival fires broke out upon clergy and laity alike from the New York and New Jersey areas.
When Verna Linzey was escorted into the auditorium, all eyes focused upon Verna as a hush filled the air. Even the speaker gave respect and acknowledged Verna’s arrival.
At the earliest moment possible, Dr. David Andrade prepared the audience for a special treat by inviting Verna Linzey forward to speak on Spirit baptism. Afterward, Dr. Andrade invited Verna to conduct an impartation service in which many people came forward for the laying on of hands. She was used by the Holy Spirit to bring about revival at Azusa Street and Bonnie Brae Street in December 2012 in fulfillment of a prophecy which a French prophet gave Fred Berry, the man who revitalized the Bonnie Brae House and Azusa Street, established the Azusa Street Centennial and reestablished the Azusa Street Mission and Historical Society along with his wife, Wilma.Verna was directly influenced by P.C. Nelson and Ernest Williams who were both at the Azusa Street Revival which began in 1906.
Revival has continued under Verna’s ministry and has not stopped since November at a mission in Torrance. This has spread throughout California, including Azusa Street and Bonnie Brae Street in Los Angeles, New Jersey, and many places around the world from which people took the anointing. Reported results from this anointing include church growth, ethnic unity, feeding the poor, salvations, baptisms in the Holy Spirit as confirmed by speaking in tongues, prophecies, other gifts of the Spirit, slayings in the Spirit (which Verna does not encourage), tears, crying out to God, quaking under the power of the Holy Spirit, and much more.– Christian Newswire
