“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:” Acts 2:17
Since the day of Pentecost and continuing through until the Tribulation, the Lord has been pouring out His Spirit on His Sons and Daughters.
“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until He receive the early and latter rain.” James 5:7
As many IN the church house stand looking for a revival because the pulpits declare and decree a coming revival (I’m speaking to you NAR, word of faith and grace revolution churches), the Lord is standing OUTSIDE the door knocking (Revelation 3:14-22).
The Word of God does not teach a coming revival in the church but of apostasy behind the many of the pulpits. The Bible tells us to try the spirits whether they are of God (1 John 4:1). We are warned of being tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:11-14). Yet so many continue to be deceived and distracted with wisdom of words from the vanities of man’s mind.
“36 But when He (Jesus) saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then said He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few;
38 Pray you therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38
The harvest is indeed ripe. Many are sitting in the church pews desperately looking for a revival that will deliver them from their bondage while the Lord Jesus Christ stands at the door knocking waiting and wanting to pour out His Spirit on them.
“16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the Living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My People.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and you shall be My Sons and Daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16-18.
Come out from among them Brothers and Sisters and He WILL be a Father unto you and you WILL be His Sons and Daughters. The Lord of the harvest IS sending forth His laborers into the harvest and they are declaring to the church “…Repent ye: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2). Judgment begins at the house of God. He is standing at the door knocking.
“For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the Power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18.
The power of God is in the Cross of Christ, Who He is and what He there did for whosoever will believe. The Lord is raising up a people to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the church. They will not be preaching a coming revival, they will be declaring the error of the modern church and pointing them back to the Cross of Christ for the deliverance in which they seek. The signs and wonders will FOLLOW those who believe.
There are those bound in religion who truly love the Lord Jesus Christ. They are spiritually naked, sick and imprisoned by the teachings of man. Will we, “the laborers”, the “Blessed of the Lord”, preach deliverance to the captives? Will we go to them? Who will go to the church and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
“8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
9 And He said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.” Isaiah 6:8-10
Whether the hear or not, someone must go tell them.
