Supernatural Revival Ensues at George Floyd Memorial Site


A mighty move of God has been evident in Minneapolis near the site where George Floyd was killed. A place that was full of rioting and violence is now a place of peace and revival.

The spiritual awakening is being led by Dr. Charles Karuku and Pastors Lindsey Karuku from International Outreach Church in Burnsville, Minnesota, CBN News reports.

Talking with CBN’s “The Prayer Link,” Dr. Karuku and Pastor Karuku shared that God was calling for them to be a part of facilitating healing and racial unity.

Dr. Karuku said, "I was on a 40-day fast that ended the day after George Floyd was killed. When we started the fast, the Lord told us that, on the day of Pentecost, He would do a big thing. We did not know what it would be, so we kept praying and fasting.”

He added, “The day we ended the fast, the riots broke out."

Dr. Karuku also noted that he felt called to be boots on the ground at the place were George Floyd – a Black man who was killed while in police custody – died and on the day of Pentecost “proclaim[ing] the name of Jesus Christ and bring[ing] a message of unity.”

Pastor Karuku then noted the significant transformation that has occurred since their arrival to the memorial site.

"Buildings were still burning, there was smoke and the National Guard had been called in," she explained. "But now there is a lot of peace in the area where George Floyd's memorial is. It's been declared as a sacred and holy ground, worship and salvation and true reconciliation between people of all different colors."

Dr. Karuku and Pastor Karuku also reported that many conversions, baptisms, and healings have been taken place.

"People are getting baptized during the revival services that are happening. They're giving their lives to Christ and want to take that step to be baptized," Pastor Karuku said.

"People continue to be saved, baptized, healed, and delivered,” Dr. Karuku wrote. "Last night we had salvations, instant healing of 20-year back problem, 18 months of injury instantly healed, others were going through deliverance from oppression during the revival."

"We had one man who was in the military, deaf in one ear for 15 years. God instantly opened his deaf ear," Dr. Karuku added. "We've had people coming and saying, 'I'm suicidal, can someone help me?' and we pray for them. They get delivered. We baptized them in water.

“We are getting people saved ... giving their hearts to Christ and a lot of people hugging each other over interracial healing and reconciliation that is taking place there," he noted.

Over 50 churches and ministries are working with Dr. Karuku and Pastor Karuku and pointing to Christ for hope and salvation.

"The significance of this moment plus the humanitarian crisis that is in the area is causing a lot of Christians to stand and move into this place and bring the light of Jesus Christ," he concluded.
