The Plot Thickens
What does this mean? This term is used when a situation is becoming more and more complicated and puzzling.
The contrast of those walking in the light and those living in darkness is becoming more and more obvious. What’s going on? Two things: Father is at work pulling His disobedient children out of worldliness before they are completely consumed by lies and evil and miss the rapture.
The end of the age is here and Jesus’ return in the air is soon. Father is also dealing with sinners.
Who Turned the Light Out?
“But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
(2 Corinthians 4:4-5)
Definition of Veil: to hide, to cover up, conceal, envelop, keep secret
A person who hears the gospel message being preached and thinks it is absurd nonsense cannot receive conviction of sin.
That’s because their conscience has been defiled, deeply stained by sin. They have been blinded by satan. They cannot SEE or comprehend what Jesus died to give them.
What’s surprising is even people who seemed to have had good sense in the past are being taken over, believing that lies are truth.
We are seeing the parable of the Tares and the Wheat take place before our eyes. See Matthew 13:36-43. That’s exciting because Jesus hints about the rapture in this passage.
As for sinners, intercession is required to pull them out! Remember, someone prayed you in!
So get used to it, things are separating; it’s either black or white now so don’t get alarmed and run around sharing the next bizarre story.
The stage is being set for the tribulation.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21)
“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” (Daniel 11:32)
We were called to fulfill our purpose in this prophetic season written about in past ages in God’s Word. What a privilege!
1. The Shaking of all Nations: Hebrews 12:25-29
The virus, the rioting, bizarre behavior, lying news programs, anti-Christ Democrats, people who are under satanic dominion, the threat of socialism and the one world coalition, a Presidential election on the horizon … my goodness, “what now Lord?” Are we to withdraw in fear?
Absolutely not!!! We will be “more fervent still!” The Glorious Church is emerging with “healing in her wings” as the Kingdom of God is about to explode on earth in every nation!
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
2. Intercession and Revival
Intercession lays track for God to move.
When He made man He gave man authority over all the earth. (Genesis 1:26-28) Although our mighty Father can do anything, He set it up that we are to ask anything in Jesus’ name, and He will do it.
“And I have put My words in your mouth;
I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,
That I may plant the heavens,
Lay the foundations of the earth,
And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ” (Isaiah 51:16)
Speak with authority!
Intercessors have great power when they pray in the Holy Spirit. We tap into the river of life. Let’s jump in and let the current move us this way and that. He leads. We follow. This is how we pull down evil, how we plant the heavens, how revival comes and is birthed.
*Simeon, a just and devout man, was waiting for the Consolation of Israel and the Holy Spirit was upon him when Jesus was brought to the Temple at eight days old. Simeon rejoiced and prophesied over the Holy Child.
*Anna the prophetess, who had not departed the temple for eighty-four years but served God with fastings and prayer night and day, came in at the same hour Simeon was holding Jesus giving thanks to God. She also gave thanks to the Lord and spoke of Jesus to all those that were there. (See Luke 2:25-38)
*We, The Body of Christ, are praying prayers of preparation for Jesus’ return in the air. But just before that great and awesome day, there must come the great awakening/revival in all the nations. We are now in its first stages of progress.
As this “gospel of the Kingdom of God” is being preached in all the nations, which must include signs, wonders, and miracles, it is breaking through demonic strongholds of lies and witchcraft in the heavenlies so that even the wicked lost can “HEAR” and understand what Jesus did on the cross and experience the overpowering love of God for them. This brings repentance of sin and total surrender of self so that they can be born again.
Intercession is vital!
This is that…which comes before the rapture!
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
