Lots of things going on!

 There is an increased stirring in the atmosphere, an intensifying sense that something is on the horizon.  Here at House of Good Hope, some of the intercessors have been having visions of the Rider on the white horse, as described in Revelation 19:11.  When these visions were shared, I was reminded of a powerful vision I heard Dutch Sheets share at a conference I was at in Smithfield Rhode Island:

I knew I was in for a wild ride when the Lord showed me a mental picture of myself riding with Christ on His white horse—I just didn't know how wild! But when the Holy Spirit spoke to both Chuck Pierce and me in October 2002 to go to all 50 states in order to network intercessors and leaders,pray for breakthrough, and further shift the nation toward revival, I began to realize just how wild—and long—the ride would be. My part of this adventure actually began in September 1998 when I was speaking for Peter Wagner at a conference in Rochester, New York.Suddenly, during the worship, I was given a vision of America. It was as though I was looking down from Heaven onto the United States. I then saw the Lord in the middle of the nation, dressed for war and riding His white war horse. Both Christ and the horse wore very intense expressions, much like Christ is described as wearing in Revelation 19:11-16. He was fearsome and majestic beyond words. So was His horse, which was shifting, prancing, and obviously wanting to run. It was evident that Christ was either waiting for some signal, or was in the process ofdeciding for Himself where to go first. Suddenly, He looked toward the East, prodded the horse, and they dashed to Washington, D.C., where He struck the earth with a staff, causing flames tospring up from the earth. I knew the flames represented both cleansing and revival. He then paused while deciding where to go next, then charged to another part of the nation where He struck the ground again, with the same results. This was repeated, with no visible pattern, until He had crisscrossed the nation many times, and the flames had sprung up all across the nation.

As I edited this, suddenly I was reminded of Awaken the Dawn on October 6-9!
