The Glorious Church and The Footstool
The Preceding Days Before the Great Tribulation:
Do not fear!
“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:17-19)
What is perfected love? God is love.
Faith works through love.
Definition of perfected: being entirely without fault or defect; flawless; faithfully reproducing the original; satisfying all requirements; corresponding to an ideal standard
What does perfected love produce? Boldness (courage) in the day of judgment!
Faith works through perfect love to cast out fear and worry. Father protected the children of Israel from all ten plagues that came on the Egyptians. He certainly is protecting His Church today.
How do God’s people get perfected love?
Refuse to fear! Love God with all your heart. Walk by faith in God in His Word…just like Jesus did. As He is, so are we (now), in this world. (See Ephesians 2:6)
The Mature Believer:
1. Knows who they are in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
2. Has developed the habit of “taking every thought captive to the obedience of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
3. Has developed their skills in spiritual warfare. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Times of Judgment
“For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
In transgressing and lying against the Lord,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him
That there was no justice.
He saw that there was no man,
And wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;
And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.” (Isaiah 59:12-16)
Jesus Christ: Intercessor!
"It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us." (Romans 8:34)
The Glorious Church: Intercessor
God spoke through the Old Testament prophet Ezekiel:
“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. (Ezekiel 22:30)
Jesus said, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations?’” Today, The Church with all of its diversities of activities and differences of ministries is standing in the gap for the nations. Prayer is the sustaining force of power. Prayer is the very foundation of every ministry, for without prayer there can be no success. “Without Me you can do nothing.” The branch cannot bear fruit of itself.
The Power of Intercession…The Holy Spirit!
Intercessors are moving forward with great authority, binding and loosing, praying for leaders and the lost to establish the Kingdom of God in every nation.
This army is equipped with the power of the Holy Spirit, skilled in praying in tongues, and moving together in the Word of God. Intercession lays track for the other ministries to advance, and all of us are moving forward with great zeal now to restore the United States to its Christian roots under our godly President and advance the day of Jesus Christ’s return! This is the hidden scheme behind the pandemic, to stop the Kingdom of God from advancing.
Today, more intercessors are needed throughout the nations. Let’s pray them in!
April 2020: Making His Enemies His Footstool
“The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’” (Hebrews 1:13) How is He going to do that?
The Father is speaking to His Son of the end-days Glorious Church that comes forth as the great army of the LORD, no longer pew warmers satisfied to eat baby food every Sunday, that have no idea of their authority or how to use it.
Imagine your city police force driving around all day in their cars but never using their weapons and not arresting evil doers of any crimes. Would society suffer? Would lawlessness and chaos increase there? Should their immoral behavior influence The Church and silence Pastors from teaching God's Word?
When was the last time your Pastor taught 1 Corinthians 5:11 from the pulpit?
Not being taught the scriptures, babies have no idea what Jesus actually accomplished through His suffering, death, resurrection, and ascension.
Vines Dictionary - Footstool: under a foot; a footstool was used by a conquering king to place his foot on the neck of the conquered, i.e. those under his total dominion. (see Joshua 10:24)
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.’ He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” (Galatians 3:13-14)
“(Christ) …having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” (Colossians 2:14-15)
“… Jesus Christ who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.” (1 Peter 3:22)
"I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." (Revelation 1:18)
Jesus already dealt with the enemy.
Why does The Church have to deal with him?
Father wants His creation to fulfill His original intent to take dominion over the earth! “Let Us make man in Our image, according to our likeness: let them have dominion over all the earth. Be fruitful…fill the earth and subdue it…have dominion…” (See Genesis 1:26-28)
The first Adam was given authority over the earth but failed to dominate the snake, the tempter. When he sinned, his authority over the earth was transferred to satan. (See 1 Corinthians 15:20-58)
The last Adam (Jesus Christ) got authority back …but only for those who are “in Him.” Through Jesus, and through His name, we enforce the Kingdom of God on earth. Jesus’ prayer, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is done in heaven,” is being accomplished in these end days! (Matthew 6:10)
What the fight over this planet is all about:
“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)
Notice: “then the end will come.”
The gospel of the kingdom is not only the salvation message but includes signs, wonders, and miracles…just like Jesus brought forth. “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” (Acts 10:38)
What a privilege to be born into the last generation of His Church! Each member of Christ's Body is vitally important. Fulfill your calling Saints!
This is that…
which will keep you from the Great Tribulation
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.” (Revelation 3:10)
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of man is coming.” (Matthew 25:13)
