“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[a] of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength” (Ephesians 1:17-19)
“It is a time when God’s purposes will accelerate on the earth.” I’m presently experiencing that in my life . This acceleration isn’t just for me. It’s for YOU too! God wants to communicate with His people. We need to know what God our expectations will increase and faith will arise. Unbelief will be suspended or diminished and breakthroughs will occur.
God still wants the revelation of His will to be voiced/expressed in the earth. The Word of God is so rich in truth we can’t live without it. We must know what God is saying so they can co-labor with Him to fulfill His purposes for the days ahead!
Times, seasons and epochs are a part of God’s divine plan. An epoch signifies a fixed point of time. Merriam-Webster’s defines epoch as is an extended period of time usually characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events
There are karios moments when when conditions are right for the accomplishment of God’s purpose in the earth. “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.”
Almighty God selects and appoints specific times and seasons to render justice in the earth. He chooses who He will work through. He humbles one and exalts another.
When we look at the chaos in the world today, We have been witnessing extreme, unusual weather patterns, upheavals in our nation, government, the arts and entertainment world. The Lord’s purpose will be established, And He will accomplish all His good pleasure” (Isaiah 46:10) God’s plan is progressing steadily forward!
God shakes everything that can be shaken and removes it, so only that which cannot be shaken remains (Heb. 12:27). He does this even within the Church. God reveals what is false in us and removes it or prunes us from it (Jn. 15:2), so that only the true and the holy remain.
He is preparing a bride for Himself who is free of all spots and blemishes. He removes those things that defile us in order to sanctify us and cleanse us with the washing of water by the Word (Eph. 5:26-27). Truth empowers us! Do you want God to pour out His glory and transform your family, your city, your nation?
We have entered into 2018, and can no longer afford to be vague, ambiguous and leave things to chance. I believe 2018 will be a significant year for the Body of Christ, but we must be in position to perceive and understand what God is doing to participate and receive all that He has for us. Isaiah 43:18-19 says, 18 Do not remember the former things nor consider the things of old. 19 See, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not be aware of it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
It Is a Time When the Knowledge of the Glory of the Lord Will Be Multiplied!
The church is in one of the most pivotal moments in history. It will either enter a great revival and heal the culture woes of our times as it has done in the past or go the route of social compliance and irrelevancy. -Doug Weiss
We need spiritual leaders that will take their place before a Holy God speaking the truth in love. The Lord took me to Ezekiel 44:23 regarding the priesthood. Ezekiel is a prophet during Israel’s Babylonian captivity, “He shall teach my people the difference between what is holy and what is secular, what is right and what is wrong.“ They will serve as judges to resolve any disagreements among my people. Their decisions must be based upon my laws. And the priests themselves shall obey my rules and regulations at all the sacred festivals, and they shall see to it that the Sabbath is kept a sacred day. God is holy, and He wants His people to be holy. The priest, or High Priest, must live in such a way as to set an example for the people. The best way to teach holiness is to live holy before them.
God’s standards have not changed because of the passing of time. His dealings with his people in the past serve as an important lesson on how He deals with his people today. We are called to be Kingdom people. We are designed to exercise our dominion in the earth and be fruitful and multiply. We are called to fulfill an appointed destiny at a specific time in our nation and church history.
We have a window of time to “get ready” for the glory of God that is going to come like a wave upon the earth. Our spiritual foundations must be secure, our houses in order, and our relationships healthy.
Beloved Saints, let’s pray for revival in our land. Revival involves a visitation from God in which His presence is powerfully an tangibly manifested in order to strengthen the Church and awaken the sleeping world to His reality. 2 Chronicles 7:14 say, My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. I encourage you to pray without ceasing. Greater things are coming!
