Hudson Taylor's prophecy from 1889 about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit
Jul 24, 2018
About the time that my maternal grandparents were born, Hudson Taylor had a vision and prophecy. He was a well-known missionary to China in the 1800’s and was the founder of the China Inland Mission.
He prophesied about Russia in the latter days. No, it wasn’t about Russia invading Israel or any other country. It was about Russia’s role in the great outpouring of the Spirit. When the Communists took over Russia in 1917 and formed their “Soviet Union,” his prophecy looked like it was much too optimistic. Russia was the enemy of God, after all. But today we should take a fresh look at it.
But Russia is not the Soviet Union. Neither will Russia be destroyed, as so many are predicting.
I saw in this vision a great war that encompasses the world. I saw this war recess and then start again, actually being two wars [WWI & WWII]. After this I saw much unrest and revolts that will affect many nations. I saw in some places spiritual awakenings. In Russia I saw there will come a general all-encompassing, national spiritual awakening, so great that there could never be another like it. From Russia, I saw the awakening spread to many European countries. Then I saw an all-out awakening, followed by the second coming of Christ.
