As we see with our natural eyes and hear with our natural ears what is occurring in our surroundings and the world; are we seeing and hearing with our spiritual eyes and ears (1 Corinthians 2: 9-16)? The scriptures are being fulfilled (Matthew 24) specifically verses 4-14 glare out to us but it is the beginning of sorrows.
Matthew 24:4-14 King James Version (KJV)
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
YIKES, you mean what we hear and see is the beginning of sorrows? The floods, fires, locusts, coronavirus or others that are happening but are not televised or on social media is the beginning?
The urgency from the Holy Spirit this morning is to the Body of Christ (THE CHURCH):
This time— a Kairotic moment where the conditions are right for the accomplishment of a crucial action; the opportune time is here — are you prepared for it and are you ready? Are your hands clean and do you have a pure heart? Leaders have called your leaders department heads into prayer and fasting? Do you have the strategies and procedures given by the Holy Spirit in placed for the flood (people) that will enter your building seeking Jesus? Do you have a system established within to communicate to each other every gate (front, back, side doors)? Do you have supplies set aside for a revival? Have you trained your staff, do they know who to report to when certain occasions arrived?
So, What? Yes, the time we have been praying for… souls to come into the kingdom are coming seeking Jesus and the answer to the problems and there are many? Counselors, teachers, five-fold ministry are you ready? Ushers, true believers, prayer warriors, and intercessors are you ready and prepared?
So, Why? The more we see and hear with our spiritual eyes and ears (some of what we have never seen or heard)- the faster they will seek me for I am doing this. Prepare now Church for the government is not prepared to meet the needs of the people but I AM through you (the remnant, those who I have chosen and out of obedience have begun to prepare themselves and their surroundings).
They (the people) will be seeking me for their savior, healer, deliverer as well as looking for their natural needs; are you prepared? Do you have resources, referrals and have you been donating and establishing a relationship with them?
For this is the beginning of sorrows and the conditions will become worse and what the people depended upon (government, money, prescription drugs, other people) are being taken away? My heavy-armed soldiers, do you have your amour on and know how to use your weapons? Have you applied the blood of the lamb upon your door posts: We must apply the blood of Jesus Christ on our eyes, ears, mouth, hands, and nose so that we see with our spiritual eye, hear with our spiritual ears, speak the word of God, smell his fragrance of holiness, and our hands to do what he asked us to do in obedience. Virgins have you check your supply of oil daily? Bride of Christ are your garments spotless? Will I find faith in the land? FINAL EXAM TIME will we pass it and endure to the end?
How? I have been teaching and training you to execute the how? Put it in action for I am With YOU.
WHEN? RIGHT NOW!!!! Moses prepared the people and gave instructions (plagues coming, eat this, put the blood on the door post, pack and be ready Exodus 6-12)
Are ready to go into the promised land (don’t be like the 10 spies), believe, receive, and prepare? For it is about souls, souls, souls. Prepare with excellence in executing the strategies and plans that I give you for I am WITH YOU. Do not fear but be courageous for I will never leave you. AMEN and Amen.
