Charles Finney - Hope Reeder

Uncapping the Wells of Charles Finney and a Word for America by Hope Reeder

There has been significant emphasis lately upon Charles Finney's revivalist anointing and call for a life of holiness separated unto God.

It was on 08-08-08 Hope and Roger Reeder joined other leaders in the role of uncapping the well of prayer and intercession left as an inheritance by the great warrior of faith and co-leader with Charles Finney, Father Daniel Nash. Nash was considered to be Finney's personal and very dedicated Intercessor. Hope Reeder preached in the middle of a corn field, on the land near the step to enter the church now gone, where Nash first Pastored in Lowville, NY. Many joined together even in pouring rain, to help uncap and release this well as a heavenly mantle to the Body of Christ on the property that God had just released to Pastors Bill and Rita Gamela, of Lowville, NY.

One year later, on August 29, 2009 Hope Reeder who carries a Charles Finney anointing, preached on the Cry for Holiness, as did Charles Finney and as did her own preaching Grandmother Ruth Colegrove who co-pastored an Apostolic movement in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the mid 1900's. One year after the well of prayer and intercession was uncapped, the joint anointing of both Charles Finney and Daniel Nash was re-connected  at Charles Finney's Church, the First Church in Oberlin, Ohio at the 'Breaking Free' Conference hosted by Susan and Mark Knauff.

To honor Charles Finney, as did he when he preached in Oberlin, Hope raised an umbrella and echoed the same words he released, 'Where is your Faith? It's going to rain!' She began her message with Isaiah 64:1-2 'O God! That You would rend the heavens and that You would come down, that the mountains might quake and flow down at Your Presence, to make Your Name known to Your adversaries, that the Nations may tremble at Your Presence!'

Hope released a decree of a revolutionary Revival coming in America. While she was preaching, Bill Gamela was praying under the platform as Nash has been known to do while Finney preached above. Also significant of heritage, crying out beside Gamela was Hope's cousin Pastor Eugene Colegrove of Grand Rapids, Michigan who was recently reunited with her after 40 years of lost communication. Hope released a powerful message on Holiness both Finney and Nash's passion, along with a cry for a mighty move of God. While Hope cried out for Holiness, many times she stomped the floor like Finney did for increased intercession. Many saw the room became bright with an overwhelming Light and an Angel was captured on Susan Knauff's cell phone photo shown below.

The message of Holiness, the reconnecting and uncapping of the wells of Charles Finney, Daniel Nash actually took place as a God set-up and spontaneous act, on Finney's Birthday August 29, 2009, and went out from the same pulpit and church from which Charles Finney preached. Charles Finney, Hope Reeder and Bill Gamela, all born in August, made this God-set-up yet spontaneous event spiritually significant making this a very historical day.

In confident expectation and anticipation, of the release of this great revival and move of God, on 09-18-09, Hope Reeder re-released the 2007 Eagle-Dove vision of the Eagle-Dove hovering over the water of the east coast of America ushering in the revival of Holiness. The complete article can be read on her website at

Here are excerpts of Hope Reeder's powerful message and decree on August 29, 2009 from Charles Finney's pulpit and church in Oberlin, Ohio.

"Oh God! That You would rend the heavens and come down! That the mountains might quake and flow down at Your Presence!  To make Your Name known to Your adversaries, that the Nations may tremble at Your Presence!' O God! Rend the heavens and come down! Come down! Come down!

Morning truly has broken over the last days! We are living in the end times and holiness will be reckoned with! Both God and Moses knew unholiness would stop the blessings of the Lord. Today Moses is not around. Today, many boast of the size of their ministry calendar, their passionless worship team, the many pools of busyness one can dive into, the gifted pastor, evangelist or prophet yet without mention of holy!

Completely barren of holiness, worship is attempted without the fire of God and man's reasoning replaces the Holy Spirit in life changing decisions. i weep! i weep! I believe that God meant what He said in His Word! Should we continue to live blindly and without holiness in a plastic world as pretenders?

There is something deep inside me that has been crying out for more! Oh! I've got to have more! Holiness is not an option! There is a line being drawn! Do you see the line separating the holy and the common. Ezekiel 42:14-43:1

I'm believing the Fire of God is being rekindled today! I believe the fuse to revival has been lit today! We speak, we sing, we proclaim holiness and every single word that Charles Finney spoke out even here in this place, is eternally hanging in the atmosphere and we join with them and decree again and say they will go out into the streets and into the hearts of the people now!

Re-ignite holiness once again in this city! Re-ignite holiness once again in this Nation! The Holy Fire and passion You Lord imparted into Finney, impart into us this day to release hope into this city, into this nation today and into all nations! We are reclaiming the Holy Fire and it only takes one! It only takes one! Will you be that one? We are reclaiming the Spirit of Holiness in this place and let no man stand here without holiness!

The reason there's been no revival in this nation is because leadership won't let it come! We need to stop praying for revival unless we allow Holy Spirit to move! When we get it...don't let it go! Oh my friend, the secret of the Lord is with them that fear Him. Lord release the 7 Spirits of God in Isaiah chapter 11! The Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge, Revelation and the Fear of the Lord! We need the Fear of the Lord! This is what we lack.

May the Fire of God's Holiness be released this day! Fire of intercession, fire of praise, fire of miracles, and tongues of Fire! God is a Consuming Fire~! Release the Fire of David, Elijah, Elisha, Solomon, Daniel, Moses, Enoch, Isaiah, Paul, and Peter as on the day of Pentecost, that we might walk in a state to heed and obey Holy Spirit!

Let there be a contagious virus of Your Holy Fire that can not be contained for wanting God more than wanting oxygen! Explosion of the uncapped wells of Intercession and Revival of Holiness be open! I Peter 1:15-16 As He which hath called you is Holy, so be holy! Oh America! God wants to pour our His Spirit upon you!

Hebrews 12:14 says strive to live in peace with everyone and pursue Holiness...pursue Holiness...pursue Holiness, that consecration of Holiness without which no man shall ever see the Lord in us, around us through us! The Spirit of Holiness was openly designated the power in striking triumph and miraculous manner by raising Christ Jesus in resurrection power from the dead. Romans 1:4 The Spirit of Holiness is powerful to raise the dead!

I am hungry for a mighty move of God! I am desperate for a holy fire of God to take up residence in me! God that I may burn for You! Send the Fire TODAY! I can't live in blindness anymore. I can't be indifferent to a dying world. I can't live another day without your Holy Presence! Some of us here used to burn but got so busy with organizing. I believe God is going to breath on us today!

Burn with an inextinguishable blaze! O Lord confirm my hearts desire to work and speak and think for You. If we don't keep the fire burning, it goes out! Make the sacrifice complete and fill my heart with boundless fire of praise. If He takes up residence in you, you will burn until you die!

"The Lord said to me, 'What will you decree Hope? What do you want to see?' So i told the Lord, I agree with what the Holy Spirit speaks, what others who have spoken, and this is what Hope will speak and decree this day!"

I see the Holy Spirit falling upon the people! God seems to be everywhere upon the people. A Revival none like the human intelligence of man has seen. An awareness of God is gripping the whole community! A consciousness of God like never before is heavy upon the people! Slain under the power of God are the hungry people who have cried out for a revival of God's Mighty Presence who would rather die than live without Him!

An outbreak of God is upon the people where it looks like meetings are lasting nearly 20 hours a day, meals forgotten, vicarious repentance is upon the city! An outbreak of His Holy Presence is consuming even the children as God's breath is blowing upon the people now! Many sinners are returning to the Lord in surrender. Creating in a people a clean heart and right spirit within.

There is great restoration here! Single Mom's are coming to the Lord by the groves! God's compassion is a liquid fire! Those in hospital rooms dieing with aids, God's mercy is literally walking as a Man into their rooms and they are being raised up as soldiers of God bringing healing to others as they get up and walk! God is taking nothing and breathing Life into it!

The Power of God is falling upon the people in the 7/11 stores and people are found on the floor trying to get up, yet trembling under the Power of God's Holy Fire! Revival is in the streets! Children are dancing! People at the gas stations are falling under the Power of God! Teens, out of bold repentance are standing up in lunchrooms and praying out loud to God. God is showing up so strong that teenagers, not able to speak, are breaking out in weeping repentance at His Presence! I see over 2,000 Students are being slain all over the ground of this place, in this city (Oberlin, Ohio) and are being filled with the Holy Spirit! Beginning right here on this campus!

Nobody! Nobody has had what is here before! Nobody has seen this before! Arrested by the Power of Holy Spirit, indifference's are being shattered in families by the Power of God's Holy Fire! Whole families are coming to the Lord! Nobody has seen this before!

From the depths of men is heard a cry across the valleys for God and God alone! They want nothing else! They only want the Fire, and The Fire is meeting their every need!

His Spirit is pouring out upon the hungry and those who have cried out, 'if You do not send a Revival of You Holy Fire, then i do not want to live anymore!' The entire Nation is inside out with an awakening of His Presence! It is more than a Revival! It is a Revolution!

Smitten by God's love, nothing else seems to matter to the people they are so in love with God! Nothing else seems to matter! People are giving their lives to God by the thousands! The Fire of God is upon the people burning up every trace of sin and He is bringing the Light of His Glory in! The Revolution is bringing in people from other cities and nations.

There is an inextinguishable flame burning! It is a Baptism of the Holy Fire! Acts of faith are being made moment by moment. Day by day there is an enlargement of people turning from coldness and blindness to the Burning Fire.

The conception of seeing this God of miracles supernaturally moving in the midst of man is bringing thousands into the Kingdom! The Lord is showing His Face as men soberly fall face-down seeking Him. Men in cars are found on the side of the road as lives are gripped with intercession for hours upon hours!

People are not the same! Nothing is the same! God has stepped out! God has stepped out! There is such a powerful Visitation of God that no one can stand nor can man gaze upon this! God is a Consuming Fire upon the people!

This is what I decree! This is what I see! So Lord release your Holy Fire today! Release tongues of Fire in this place! Release You Holy Fire in this nation today! We join with Charles Finney and Daniel Nash even now and say, Come Holy Spirit, Come!"

Sharing About The Breaking Free Conference in Oberlin Ohio.... My notes .... by Susan Knauff (host of the Conference)

"... I sent someone out to tell Hope that Bill was praying beneath the platform and Hope began to minister. I made it out in time to see her lift her umbrella (as Charles Finney did long ago) and ask the people "Where is your faith?" Long ago a drought ended at this man's proclamation of truth and faith and I believe with all my heart and spirit that another kind of drought ended in the city of Oberlin on August 29, 2009.

Hope cried a message of a return to "Holiness" from the platform and shouted out "Happy Birthday Charles Finney!" There was not a dry eye in the place as we all went into intercession and many of prayed freedom and Breaking Free over that church. I walked and prayed and had my eyes closed and at one point I felt a bright light enter the church and I could see the light through my closed eyelids. I lifted my head towards the Light and I let the presence of God sweep over me. I knew the light of God entered that place.

I sat down and downloaded the photos to the computer I was shocked at this beautiful and bright image of an angel standing next to Hope Reeder. I wept at the computer and my dear husband Mark said, "OH MY! OH MY!" This precious photo will go down in history. I know it!

As many of you know we just had The Breaking Free Conference. The amazing photo that was captured when Hope Reeder stood on the platform where Charles Finney ministered. (You can view the photo in my photos on my page) What an amazing event! God had it all planned. His beautiful and perfect timing!..."

A Word for America - by Hope Reeder released 09-21-09

The Spirit of the Lord says, stay alert and be sober. The day of My return is at hand. Loose yourself from those things that bind you. Prepare the way in your own heart and help prepare the way in others.

Look around you among the nations and see! And be astonished! Astounded! For I AM  putting into effect a work in your days such that you would not believe it if it were told you. For I AM doing a deed in your days, a deed which you will never have confidence in or believe, even if someone clearly describing it in detail declares it to you. For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. And there is a hope for your future says the Lord.

The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled. For there will be no more false visions or flattering. I the Lord will speak what I will and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days I will fulfill whatever I say. None of My Words will be delayed any longer. Whatever I say will be fulfilled. I am the Lord, who makes you holy. Dry bones, hear My Words. I will put My Spirit in you and you shall live. You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and see for you, I will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope.

Fear not! For I have chosen you for such a time as this. Turn to Me! Humble yourself and turn to Me and I will heal your land. For I AM the One who turns the hearts of Kings. I AM your help in time of trouble. You are chosen for Me and for My works. Come unto Me and I will lighten your load for My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Nations wait upon you to turn back to Me. Come unto Me and I will take away the reproach. Watch and see what I will do for you.

I AM coming quickly! Hold on to what you have so that no one will take away your crown. Yes, I have spoken and I will bring it to pass I have purposed it and I will do it! Yes, I AM coming soon. I the Lord have spoken it. It shall come to pass and I will do it!
