The world’s spiritual climate has unmistakably shifted and accelerated. There is a definitive “Line in the Sand” being drawn distinguishing darkness from light, sin from holiness, life from death, Satan’s kingdom and God’s Kingdom. It will intensify, there is no turning back.
The deluge and rapidity of bad news is unprecedented: Wars, persecution, genocide, disasters, governments and leaders falling, countries being overtaken, terrorist attacks, borders over run, failing economies, rising crime, gangs, drug cartels, human trafficking, famine, break down of traditional family values, pestilence and disease has ushered in a tumult of fear and instability in the atmosphere. Satan has launched a “Shock and Awe” campaign. It will ultimately fail and pale in comparison to the magnificent display of God’s glory, power and signs and wonders in the heavens. Darkness is rising but it can’t overtake The Light. Jesus is Lord and He will reign and rule throughout eternity. The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only real and lasting good news!!! His Word never changes. You can stake your very life on it. I have!!! Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Throughout history, which is His-story, it has never been proven wrong and has always come to pass. The Bible prophesied our current events thousands of years ago with pen point precision as if you were reading today’s newspaper.
What are we to do in the midst of the swelling tide? Most importantly, if you don’t have a personal relationship with Christ, TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION! If you have not been “born-again” don’t wait, do it now. You will NEVER regret it. I have had a personal relationship with the Lord for over 40 years. He has been faithful through thick and thin, the ups and the downs, the good and the bad times. No matter what I have battled or walked through, He has never left me and has always turned things around for my good. It is the best decision I have ever made or ever will make. I urge you to do the same. It is so simple, just ask the Lord Jesus Christ to come into your life, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and to be the Lord of your life. (Read John 3:3, 16-17; Ro. 6:23; Romans 10:9-10; Rev. 3:20-21) Get in a Bible based church. Seek the Lord and yield to the His leading. Read His Word and pray. Get to know Him, you will absolutely love Him!
If you are CHRISTIAN, Shine, Shine, Shine!!! Isaiah 60:1-3 “ Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise upon you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles (unbelievers) shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your arising.”
Body of Christ ARISE!!! We have been saved and prepared for this very day. Don’t be caught up in the things of the world. Don’t entertain the ways of this world. There are demonic assignments of deception, strong delusions and a spirit of temptation not only against the world but the body of Christ. Be on guard! Come out from among them and be separate. Let there be a marked difference between your life and those of this world. We are to be IN the world but NOT of this world. Gal. 5:1 “Stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” That sin which you were previously convicted of and shunned away from do not now partake of. Be sober; be vigilant for Satan is like a roaming lion seeking whom he may devour. Don’t slumber or sleep spiritually. Don’t become numb in the spirit or procrastinate.
Satan knows we are carriers of the presence of God and are to proclaim God’s kingdom on this earth. If he can’t lure you into sin he will try to lull you to sleep. If he can’t cause you to fall through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye or the pride of life he will seek to distract you. If all else fails he will try to overwhelm you with fear BUT God is the stability of our times (Isa. 33:6).
In spite of all evil reports or battles we may face, we are not to quiver or quake in the corner as those who have no hope. Don’t fear the evil tidings. God said all of this would happen and it is. God’s got this!!! God has amazing things in store for the body of Christ to walk in and to display. We have been called into action. We are the Army of God. We are on active duty. Our assignment is to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, lay hands on the sick, cast out demons and make disciples of all nations. Awake! This is the day to take up our spiritual armor and advance the Kingdom of God! This is our finest hour! We have the Words of Life and the power of His Spirit. With the name of Jesus, the Word of God, our spiritual armor and the blood of Jesus, we, the worshipping warriors of Christ cannot fail. We are more than conquerors.
We are alive in the most exciting and greatest time of history. He is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh (Joel 2). This is the time of the great end time Harvest and we get to be a part of it. Put in the sickle and reap. The Tsunami tidal wave of God’s glory is rising. We are called to ride the wave, laughing joyously. With our eyes on Jesus and our ears tuned to His voice, nothing is impossible. Miracles will be the norm! Satan with all his tactics can never over power or “out do” God. God has the last say. We will soon see displays of God’s power as never before. Get in on it! Live in such a way that the world will see Jesus in you and be drawn to the light that is in you. Be His hands, His feet, His heart, His face, His voice, and His ears to a broken and hurting world. This is the day for callings to be fulfilled, visions come to pass, gifts and anointing’s activated. As we lift Him up, He will draw all men unto Him. Get Ready! Get Ready! Get Ready!
