You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected (Luke 12:40)
WE ARE USHERED INTO A PROPHETIC TIME-FRAME
I hope you realise that we are living in a prophetic time-frame. You and I are living at the closing of the ages. In fact we are living at the most crucial time in human history in view of what we are seeing around us.
You know what? We are living in a time where power is shifting and shaking globally! Something big and phenomenal is ready to give birth prophetically in the spiritual, which will manifest in the physical world soon.
But sadly, we get so caught up with living in a world that is demonically influenced and we have been mesmerized and hijacked into thinking, that it’s a norm to live like this. We need to wake up and tune ourselves to the spiritual signals that are coming from God.
We cannot predict the precise timing when Jesus will return.
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)
However, we know the seasons. And the great sign for us prophetically is what is happening on “God’s time clock” concerning Israel. The awesome restoration of Israel in 1948 after nearly 2000 years. Again in 1967 when Jerusalem was restored as the capital of Israel once again.
I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below (Acts2:19)
God is saying that even nature will react and respond to what He is going to bring about. In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states,
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)
And in the Ñew Testament Peter is quoting the same message in Acts 2:20. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord..
The celestial blood moon pattern seems to be having a significant event for Israel. In the past every occurrence of the blood moon has been accompanied by a dramatic big event in the history of the world concerning Israel. In 1949 a blood moon appeared immediately after Israel was born once again into a nation. It also appeared again in 1967 after the 6-day war when the Jews regained Jerusalem to become the capital of Israel.
The next appearance that occurred in the years 2014 and 2015 were on Jewish holy days i.e Passover and Sukkot. What may be expected, we don’t know for sure but one thing we know for certain; God is going to shake the world with some big and significant event to change the history of the world.
Jesus said when you start seeing these things you bet, God is going to do awesome things in this world. In other words He is saying now is the time of the end. I believe God is sending His signals from heaven and we are unfortunately tuned to the wrong channel.
NOT A SUGARCOATED GOSPEL OF MAN
Matt.24:14: And THIS GOSPEL of the Kingdom will be proclaimed as a testimony to all the nations of the world then the end will come. It’s not the gospel that we choose to preach. But it is THIS GOSPEL! The Gospel Jesus proclaimed! The Gospel Paul preached! The Gospel Peter preached! The triumphant and awesome Gospel of the Kingdom!
Therefore the mission of any Church is to uphold the integrity and authority of God & His Kingdom upon this earth. So the Church has a great responsibility here on earth to preach an uncompromising Gospel.
Secondly, the Church has a great responsibility to train and groom the people God has entrusted in our hands to carry the Gospel into the world. We are supposed to train them to be effective agents for God! And how to carry Kingdom principles and release these principles into this earth to change the ethics and culture of this perishing world.
But sadly I am afraid,” this Gospel” is unfortunately not preached in the body of Christ today. We are hearing a different gospel that has been compromised and diluted, twisted and bent, – a desensitized, seeker-friendly gospel, so to speak, to make people comfortable.
Needless to say, the Bible clearly and seriously addresses this issue. Jesus said in Matt.7:21-23:
“Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?”
And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.”
I believe a great number of people will be very disappointed at the end. They would find themselves disqualified to enter eternity at the end of the day.
“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.” (Matt.7:13)
THIS GOSPEL IS THE CURE FOR EVERY HUMAN NEED
The Gospel is the ultimate answer! It is the ultimate solution to man’s ultimate need! It is the very cure for all human problems in this earth.
Jesus knew that the earth itself can only function right as we successfully penetrate and infiltrate the whole earth with the standards and ethics, rules and morals of this Gospel. Therefore He is looking out for you and me to carry out His mandate.
The Bible teaches that God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked.
“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel.”
If we are to be Christlike, then we must not rejoice in the death of the unsaved. It is a sad thing when someone dies and goes into Hell.
No Christian who has God’s love in their heart should be glad to see anyone go to Hell. Many people rejoice that sinners are burning in Hell, but God is not pleased about it. God does NOT want any soul to perish into Hell.
2 Peter 3:9,
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
GOD IS LOOKING FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON TO BE USED AT THIS CRUCIAL MOMENT
In this prophetic timeframe God will raise up an end-time army that will be able to contain his glory. God wants to commission every believer in Christ to carry His anointing and be instruments of the Gospel. No matter who you are it doesn’t matter. God is placing a call and destiny upon each one of us, be it where and what capacity of the kingdom you are involved in.
Now, you got to be alert at this time not to allow the enemy to discourage you with his deceiving voice to demoralise you and get you thinking negatively. The devil is a liar! He is a thief! He comes to steal and kill and destroy! Don’t look at yourself and focus on your weaknesses. If you look at yourself you will feel inadequate. The devil will ride on your weaknesses. Whatever little you have God will want to use you. God is not interested in your academic qualifications. God is only asking for your availability for Him.
You see it’s through this poor group of fishermen that most of the world would have despised, ignored or laughed at that the Lord used to change the history of the world and carried the Gospel from nation to nation. None of them had a university or theological degree.
God can use anybody. The more inadequate you feel the more God can use you. God will empower you to carry His anointing to do great exploits for Him, believe me!
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
POWER AND MIGHT WILL NOT TAKE YOU THERE
Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty (Zechariah.4:6)
If you want to sustain and increase in the anointing of God you have to be led by the Spirit of God. You cannot function and be effective in carrying the Gospel to nations without this power. Your academic and theological degrees may be only helpful to a certain level in your ministry. But if you are looking forward to a fruitful ministry. If you are intending to move in signs and wonders healing and miracles and prophetic insights you need to be endued with the baptism of the Holy Spirit power. We need this resurrected power that raised Jesus from the dead to take residence and indwell in us as our Helper. Otherwise we will become outdated and burnt-out and look elsewhere to sustain ourselves.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)
