God always comes through when we walk in His Divine Will for our lives. I have been praying and seeking God about this season of the Church. It is like an alarm clock went off inside me. The first thing one does when a clock goes off is to wake up and look over at the clock and see what time it is. Spiritually, my alarm clock has gone off and I am checking the time. It is later than we think; while we were sleeping, time has been ticking by.
The harvest lays ripe in the field and needs workers to harvest it. We must rekindle the fire or we will lose this generation. America is in trouble just as the nations of the world are in trouble. The Church world-wide needs a Great Awakening. We need an 11:55pm wake up-call, a spiritual quake! It is about midnight! May God help us to stir from our sleep!
The divine clock is ringing; it is time for us to get up and get into the mighty work of the Lord of the Harvest. There is an oncoming storm on the horizon, the clouds are turning black, and the wind is starting to blow. The temperature is dropping; I can hear the sound of abundance of rain! The thunder is rolling, sounding like a wagon going over an old wooden bridge. The flashing of the thunder is getting near.
I can hear the word “Apocalypse” coming from the thunder of the clouds – as of many waters that spoke to me! I said, “What does this mean?” The voice spoke as thunder saying: “Apoclypse means something revealed, to make manifest, to uncover, and to make view!” Then I said to myself, this is a message and a subject of disclosure.
God is speaking into my spirit that Jesus is coming soon and we must get ready for it.
I can hear the cry from the Apocalypse, “He cometh!”
Here is the great fact, unequivocally stated, that Jesus Christ has not gone to heaven to stay there. The Bridegroom is about to come! Many sneer at the very idea and would laugh down the people who so even entertain it. But it is nevertheless an immutable truth from God’s eternal Word. Predicted by all the prophets, promised by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, confirmed by the testimony of angels, proclaimed by all the Apostles, and believed by all the First Century Church, acknowledged in all the early Church Creeds and down through the centuries, sung of in every great move of God, in every refreshing of the Church, and sung of in almost every church hymnal, prayed about in almost all the church liturgies, and entering essentially into every fabric of Christianity, that without it there is no true New Testament Gospel.
Without this true message, all we have is an apostate, religious church that has gone astray, a maimed and mutilated church, a relic too powerless to change the world. That cold, contaminated Church that does not look for a returning Savior is deaf, dumb, and maimed. Those who murmur at “He Cometh” to dispute it, despise it, mock it, push the idea aside, are all men full of dead men’s bones, whitened sepulchers, clouds without rain, humanist devils, obnoxious roosters drawing attention to themselves. They are users, not givers. They have no thirst for depth, no long-term commitment, no faith beyond feelings, and no sense of divine purpose to a dying world lost and on its way to hell. They deny the miracles of the Early Church, and their converts are seven more times evil than they are. They run on human fuel, using marketing ideas instead of evangelizing, using amusement to entertain fickle saints, ‘till revival can only be read about in the archives of history or from has-beens.
In other words, a lot of our modern day Christianity is like Lot who live in Sodom. It finally bent his spirit, dulled his perception and confused his morals. To save the angels of God, he offered his own daughters to the Sodomites. He even had to be persuaded to leave the doomed city. We need a Great Awakening once again!
We must make Holy Ghost Changes right now – changes that will carry us into eternity.
Here today is not an uneventful hour in history. This is our time in history; it is our time of visitation. It is our time for revival! It is our time for a Holy Ghost outpouring! It is our time for Holy Ghost services. It is time for the devil’s power to be broken in our lives, where we live in the Spirit, by the Word, and not by our flesh.
This is our moment. We must make Holy Ghost Changes right now – changes that will carry us into eternity. Changes that will wash our robes white, and make us pure in His sight. Changes that will cause the cripples to rise up and walk. Changes that will cause the sun to stand still. Changes that will stop the mouths of lions. Changes that will cause our walls of Jericho to come down. Changes that divide our Red Seas and cause us to walk through on dry ground. Changes that will give us power to walk through fire and not be burned. Change that will melt the chains off of us and cause us to walk out of prison cells. Change that will cause our water to turn into wine. Change that will cause us to walk on the waves of our sea, through the boisterous waves and billows breaking upon us – not sinking! Change that will steal our storms and cause the winds to stop! Change that make us that Glorious Church without spot or wrinkle! Changes that cause us to shout in victory and not defeat!
Change that cause us to start shouting, “Behold the Bridegroom cometh; He is near the door!” and “Shout and awake everyone to trim their lamps! Put on your wedding garments the event is near!” Behold He cometh in clouds of glory, who maketh the clouds His Chariot: Who walketh upon the wings of the winds!
