THE REALITY OF CHRIST AND HIS KINGDOM SHOULD BE GROWING IN YOUR HEART DURING THIS PRESENT PANDEMIC

A crisis as such we’ve been presently in can make one bitter or better, more carnal or more consecrated, more earthly, worldly, and temporal minded, or more heavenly and eternally-minded.

Question: Are you closer to Jesus now than you were before this pandemic? Is He more real to you? Is the reality of His kingdom more important to you now?

Personally, I really enjoy watching sports, but I can honestly tell you that I haven’t missed them during this favorite sports season when there are usually exciting rounds of playoffs and a new season of baseball beginning. The Lord is doing a deep work in many hearts during this pandemic. The reality of Christ’s invisible kingdom is coming to the forefront of many believers’ hearts and lives.

This is one gigantic difference between the early Church and today’s Church.

“Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also” (Acts 12:1-3).

“And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping…” (v. 6).

Question: Would you be able to sleep the night before your execution? Peter did. Some could say that it was the gift of faith in operation, but I also believe that Jesus was so real to Peter, he didn’t care if he died and departed to be with Him. He was missing his Master.

The post resurrection appearances of Jesus to His disciples made them to know He was alive, and no longer hindered by time and space as He went back and forth from heaven and to earth and then back to heaven.

“Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11).

john lautermilch | Jesus Taken Up Into Heaven Acrylic Print By ...This is the same reality we’ve got to come to as believers in Jesus. When Jesus rose from the dead, the disciples witnessed the power of an endless and indestructible life. It forever changed them to fully pursue Christ and His kingdom, and be no longer bound to this world and all its’ enticements, entanglements, and allurements. This is the same journey of transformation we must be on.

Jesus as God the Son had no beginning and no end, just like eternity. Hungry and thirsty believers can access eternity through Christ who went before us as a Forerunner begin the veil (Heb. 6:19-20). How exciting!

The first Adam closed the door to the paradise of Eden, but Jesus opened it again when the veil was rent in two.

“ Now it [was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was [darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two” (Luke 23:44-45).

It’s amazing that the penitent thief went into paradise with Jesus. Jesus opened the way to a new garden of Eden.

The post resurrection appearances of Jesus unveiled a mystery to His disciples, not only that Jesus was no longer dead, but that He was now alive with access to travel between heaven and earth, with zero limitations of time and space. Jesus was giving us a peek into the eternal future of the saints, who shall live and travel in both realms.

To a measure, we can learn to live that way now in both the natural and spiritual world, because we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

And so we need not fear this pandemic or any other crisis that will come in these last days, and there will be many more, as Jesus told us. Instead, let us focus on the transformation that God wants to do in us to learn to live in two worlds—both the natural and the spiritual world. This is the privilege of those believers who are hungry and yearning to follow the pattern of Jesus, the Son of God, who lived in both worlds, even in His earth walk.

Heaven and Earth Program Notes | Cappella Romana

Jesus learned to walk in the NOW with His Father and we must learn to o the same—to access the realm of eternity and not be limited by time and space. Jesus is in the NOW. He is the Great I AM, and is always speaking to us from the eternal NOW. We must not relegate HIM to the future, and we must not limit Him to what He was to His disciples in His earthly ministry. We are in a different time now in the final hours of the last days. Many spectacular manifestations are just on the horizon for us—divine appearances, angelic visitations, people being translated supernaturally from one geographical place to another as Philip, the evangelist was (Acts 8), great signs, wonders, and marvels are about to happen.

Let us not focus too much on last days crisis, plagues, pandemics, pestilences, etc. Jesus said these things would come. Instead, let us keep eternity in our hearts and know that God is above time and space, and want to speak and communicate with us from the eternal now. We can experience this kind of intimacy with Him all the time, as we learn to cultivate the new garden of Eden in our hearts— acres and acres of it.

This is what it means to live our lives in Christ where we are seated in heavenly places.

May God give the reader understanding.

Convergence of These Fearful Visions From Prophets of the Last Century Is Upon Us

In 1927 Smith Wigglesworth prophesied:

There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing and causing them to be ready for translation.

TOP 10 AFTER LIFE TESTIMONIES from Jesus Christ is here NOW! on ...

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.

Bert Farias's Blog, page 10

In 1950, the late Kenneth E. Hagin received this divinely granted appearance:

I looked at the scroll again, and again I looked to see what I had read about. I saw the skyline of a large city. Looking closer, I saw the skyscrapers were burned-out hulls. Portions of the city lay in ruins. It was not written that just one city would be destroyed, burned and in ruins, but that there would be many such cities.

The scroll was written in the first person, and seemed as if Jesus Himself were speaking. I read: “America is receiving her last call. Some nations already have received their last call and never will receive another.”

Then, in larger print, it said, “THE TIME OF THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.” This statement was repeated four or five times. Jesus also said this was the last great revival. He went on to say: “All the gifts of the Spirit will be in operation in the church in these last days, and the church will do greater things than even the early church did. It will have greater power, signs and wonders than were recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.”

I believe in visions we have seen and experienced many healings, but we will now behold amazing miracles that have not been seen before. Jesus continued: “More and more miracles will be performed in the last days which are just ahead, for it is time for the gift of the working of miracles to be more in prominence. We now have entered into the era of the miraculous.

Many of my own people will not accept the moving of my Spirit, and will turn back and will not be ready to meet Me at my coming. Many will be deceived by false prophets and miracles of satanic origin. But follow the Word of God, the Spirit of God and Me, and you will not be deceived. I am gathering my own together and am preparing them, for the time is short.”

Again in 1963, Hagin saw this: ( I included this entire vision as a chapter in my new book, The Tumultuous2020s and Beyond.

21 Best GOD'S Supernatural Healings for Mankind! images | John g ...


For there came a dark hand up out of the ocean from the east, even from the Atlantic Ocean. It came up out of the sea as a hand and as it rose up into the air it became a dark cloud and it filled the whole atmosphere. Yea, and it swept in like a storm at sea. And I said, “Oh Lord! Oh Lord! Oh Lord! What’s the meaning of this?” And He spake unto me and said,

“Son, that is the darkness of atheistic communism that is sweeping across the nation—even in the minds of men in high places and politicians with great power. And this nation shall not grow more strong and you shall not have more liberty than you have now, but liberties that you’ve known and you’ve seen shall be seized and taken from you.”

And I looked again, and I could see upon the mountain a blotch, as though a bottle of ink had been spilled and spread out over several states in the south and east. And then I looked and I could see spots splotched all over the map and I said, “Lord, what meaneth this?”

And He said,

“Communistic inspired hatred among races shall cause greater turmoil than your nation has seen heretofore. Yea, it is not the will of God but men’s hearts are perverse and they walk without the love of God and seek to have their own way. And so it shall be worse than you have seen.”

Hagin also saw this:

And so then I looked into the spirit realm and I saw falling upon that mountain a ball of fire from heaven. The closer to the Earth, the bigger it got, and then when it came to the Earth it divided into small balls or sparks of fire, and it fell upon men. And I saw an army of men rise up, and it seemed as though their hands were fire. And there sat upon their heads a tongue of fire. (When I first saw it, it seemed like their whole heads were on fire but it was tongues of fire leaping.) And I said, “What meaneth this?”

And He said, “Before the worst shall come and the day of darkness encompasses there will be those who shall go and who shall carry the fullness of My truth and the fire, not only to the states of this nation but to many other places. For there is a work that must be done, first spiritually, before the Lord shall come.

“Now prepare ye your hearts, for the time is at hand and the beginning is now; and ye shall see and ye shall know for the hand of the Lord is upon you and many of you shall be used in these last days and the work shall progress.”

In 1965 Stanley Frodsham, companion to Wigglesworth, prophesied this:

With great judgments will I plead with the population of this country. Great darkness is coming upon the countries that have heard My gospel but no longer walk in it. My wrath shall come upon them. The darkness shall be so great and the anguish so sore that men shall cry out for death and shall not find it. There shall be a lingering death, famine and great catastrophes.

My wrath shall be manifested against all ungodliness. It shall come with great intensity. You have known my love but have not experienced My wrath or My severity. My judgments are literal and not a thing to be passed over lightly.

1965 Prophecy by Stanley Frodsham at Elim Bible Institute | Voice ...

Realize the severity of My judgments and My intense anger against the sin in My household. My judgments shall begin in My house, for I will cleanse My house that it be not a partaker of My wrath against the iniquities of the cities. Before I visit the nations in judgment; I will begin at My house. When I do cause My wrath to come upon the cities of the world, My people shall be separate. I desire a people without spot or wrinkle, and such will be preserved by Me in the time of My wrath, which will be coming upon all iniquity and unrighteousness. (this is the reason I wrote the book, Cleansing The Temple, because judgment begins in God’s house first). 

In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway saw this:

An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.

The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:

I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.

She mentioned four waves. For her complete vision go here.

And finally, in 2004, Oral Roberts saw a marvel that shook him:

Suddenly, in the clouds in the skies above New York City and the east part of the United States, and which hung there for quite some time and then spread out across America, without touching the ground, and then God diffused it away from America and sent it out to the nations of the earth. And I saw and I heard. What did I see? I saw something coming down from above: Smoke and vapor and blood, or it looked like that to my eyes, to my spiritual eyes.

To read his complete vision, go here.

We are living in a time when the fulfillment of these things is straining at the gate to come forth. The day is nearing when it will suddenly burst forth. Right now, the Lord is holding these things back to give the body time to prepare, but too many are wasting that time in false confidence, compromise and complacency.

We are in a process of cleansing the temple so that when the worst comes, the church shall be separate, and her impact shall be greater in quality and quantity.

JESUS IS COMING FOR A MIGHTY BLOOD BOUGHT CHURCH, NOT A WEAK, FEARFUL ONE

This is  A Prophecy by the late Kenneth E. Hagin on October 01, 1974 Longmont, Texas: Amidst the present plague/virus and fear in the world and even in among some Christians the Church needs to be reminded of this.

“No, the time of the end is not yet. No, America is not doomed,” I heard Him say. “No, judgment will not fall as yet.

Some have seen some things in the spirit and didn’t know how to interpret it. They interpreted it as happening now. I didn’t say it was going to happen now. In the spirit you see things in the distance —and even in another age.

When the Church age is over, judgment will fall. But judgment will not fall upon the Church. For the only judgment that the church will face is the judgment seat of Christ. They’ll not face the judgment of tribulation (my comments: Pre-trib and post-trip arguments avail; I’m a proponent of both of them with a split church at the pre-trib rapture where some go and some stay; for more clarification on this go here and scroll back, then go forward  to read the 12-part series I did in 2013. I received this understanding from my personal studies on a number of eschatology books of the late Rev. Gordon Lindsay, who was a good friend of Bro. Hagin. My understanding of eschatology may change as I continue to grow, but right now, that is what I believe is closest to the fulness of truth concerning the rapture of the Church). They’ll not face the judgment of the enemy or the judgment of God, for they’re protected by God.

“And there is more to happen yet. There’s missionary work to be done. And even the renewal that you call the ‘Charismatic Renewal,’ and the move of the Spirit in these last days —you have only seen a little. “And there shall be those that stand before the leaders of this nation and work miracles. And it shall be even so as it was with Phillip, after that he had baptized the eunuch that he was caught away and found in another city. And so one shall be in this city and television cameras shall be trained upon him. The reporters will say,” He’s here in Dallas, Texas. ’And as fast as you can snap your finger, a television camera in Los Angeles…and there he is. Some will say, ‘How did he do that?’ It shall be the Spirit of God that shall catch him away (my personal comments: I’ve always had that same conviction. How glorious! We need to think bigger than the present dark situation in our nation.)

And these signs and wonders shall become more prevalent. Signs and wonders have come here and come there. But they shall become more prevalent and more prevalent in these last days. “And let not your heart be fearful, nor let it be afraid.
For there shall, and on the scene he has already arisen (I believe he’s speaking of President Trump who was about 28 years old at this time. I can’t prove that, so I’ll just submit it to you for consideration. Keep reading.), one who shall respond unto the things of God and whose heart will be open toward God.

And your nation, that seemed to be cut down to the roots, and the wild birds of the air and the fowls of the air came and roosted in her branches and did much disrepute unto the nation. Yet that shall all be repaired because this man shall say,
‘I will walk in the way of God. I will trust also in Him.’ And he shall be at the head, and many shall follow him. And the work of God shall be consummated that must be consummated in other nations before I come,” (Oh, glory to God! Hallelujah!)

“I heard Him say, “‘Because, you see, The enemy shall not gainsay the work of the Lord.’ And like a trumpet sounding across the valley, I heard His voice so strong and clear, and He said,

‘I AM NOT COMING FOR A CHURCH, THE BODY OF CHRIST, THAT’S WEAK, EMACIATED, SICKLY, AND UNDERGROUND meaning hiding in fear (my comments: he is not speaking of the mighty underground church, because of persecution as in nations like Iran, but he’s speaking of the mighty holy remnant of God who will rise up in this hour). I’M COMING FOR THE SPIRITUAL GIANT THAT’S ALIVE AND LIVING, AND WORKING THE WORKS OF GOD!’

“So be not fearful, nor cast thy glance around about, and become askant. But look ye up unto Him, for He is the Head of the Church. And through the Church, the Head will manifest himself. And men are the hands of the Lord, and the hands are in the Body. And He shall stretch forth His hands to heal the sick, that signs and wonders shall be wrought in the name of the Holy Child Jesus. (GLORY! GLORY!! GLORY!!!)

“And two things shall shortly be made manifest unto the real people of God: “One is further light and teaching and revelation
in the area and realm of healing —physical healing, divine healing —that will be the key that will unlock the chain that has bound so many and they’ll never more be the same.(comments: There was much teaching in the 70’s and 80’s on this that many of us need to revisit. I was a part of an apostolic team that received a mandate from God to carry the “word of faith into West Africa in the mid-80s into the mid 90s. And I will be writing and ministering more on this in the near future). We need this “word of faith” (Rom. 10:8) especially in this time where great fear is abounding all over the world.

“And then there shall come revelation…further light according to the Word concerning the miraculous, and the part that faith doth play. For faith is like the fuse that ignites the dynamite.” 

“And when the explosion goes off, all can hear and see. But there was a fuse that had to be lit, and FAITH is the fuse. (Yes! Yes!! Yes!!!)

And thou shalt be able to stand and to take a blackboard, like a teacher teaching mathematics and write out the equation and come up with the right answer. And any man or woman, boy or girl, standing or seated in that congregation will be able to take that equation, translate it into the spiritual realm, and their faith will ignite the power of God. And they’ll have an explosion in their home and in their community and in their church.

And it will be popping here and popping there;
and it will be popping here and popping there;
and it will be popping here and popping there…
So get ready for it.

“And the curtain was closed. And into the realm of eternity I could no longer see.
And into the realm of eternity I could no longer hear. But I looked again into the realm of time, where you sit and live, and say with words from heaven above, These things shall shortly be, and shall shortly come.”

PROPHECY ON PRAYER AND INTERCESSION

The following is a prophecy by the late Kenneth E. Hagin spoken in a prayer seminar in the late 1980s. How much more true is it today? The need to pray has become a cliche. Many talk it, but few live it. The need to actually learn to pray effectively and become a praying people has never been greater and more vital. 

The end of this age is coming upon this generation, the powers of darkness, the forces of evil are around pant??? as never before, and will be increased in intensity and velocity and many, even Christians will see and look upon those things and say there’s no use and throw up their hands in futility and say I guess it’s all over…I guess we’ll just have to hold on and pray that Jesus will come shortly for the devil is about to take over everything.

But thus saith the Lord: In this day I’m searching through the body of Christ to enlist soldiers in the army of prayer. And I’ll raise up a new band, I’ll raise a new army, that will know how to intercede abasing the powers of darkness. And the light will dispel the darkness, and the truth will set men free, and prayer and intercession will break the bands that bind men’s minds and spirits and bodies.

Yea, there are those that will learn to take their place, and hurriedly it must be…hurriedly it must be…quickly it must be, that they learn and that they enter in quickly and stand against the forces of darkness and evil that would come against your land, that will come against the Church, that would come against the home, that would disrupt and destroy all that is good that God has endorsed.

But the hand of the Lord is upon those who will listen and the urge of God is in the spirit of those who are attentive. And the Spirit of God will help you to pray.

Image result for image of prayer

Do not try to do it yourself, though there must be labor on your part, yet at the same time, rest in Him and let the Spirit flow through you like a river, like a mighty wave. Let it flow through you. Give vent unto those innermost groanings and let them escape your lips. Take time to get alone and to wait…sometimes not even say anything. But on the inside of you there is an agonizing flowing out of your spirit by the Holy Spirit from the great Spirit, the Father of spirits.

Thou shalt be sustained. Thou shalt be kept. Thy family and thy home shall be sure and stedfast, and thy children shall grow up strong and stalwart in the Lord. And thou shalt have no fear, and thou shalt intercede for thy neighbor here and for thy friend there. Thou shalt intercede for those even in the Church who’ve not come to the knowledge of the truth — making sincere intercession on their behalf.

And so the light will shine, the work of God shall go forth, and the work that is to be accomplished in these next few days and years that are just ahead of you shall surely come because you were faithful.

WE ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW ERA

The Godhead has been converging the ages for several decades. We are crossing over into brand new era. We are moving into an era of both great judgment and great glory, cleansing and consecration, repentance and restoration. This convergence has been in the making for nearly 70 years but is now fully upon us.

This new season will lead the Church into a new era where she will more efficiently grasp the end time. Once judgment, thorough repentance, and cleansing runs its’ course, the earth will be overwhelmed by the power and glory that shall be in manifestation through the glorious Church. Then the worst shall come, but the true Church will be gone.

We have no grid for what the Lord will do through a glorious end time Church. The Church has never faced and done what she is about to face and do. Many will be surprised. Hell shall be shaken. Multitudes shall awaken. God’s majesty and holiness shall be revealed and stun the world in a time of gross darkness.

“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,  and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you” (Is. 60:1-2).

The Lord has been preparing His Church for such a time as this and many will realize that they’ve not known Him and will awaken to righteousness. His awe shall be in the Church and in the earth. People will fall on their face and tremble. The harvest will be reaped by a cleansed, consecrated, and flaming fire Church.

The world is rapidly changing and the frequency of awe inspiring and fearful events is fast moving with all things culminating in the future rule and reign of Christ. The kingdom without end shall be more prominent and recognizable. Instead of churches being a subculture, the real believers shall become a counterculture. Its’ government will increase in visibility and its’ function shall be heightened through a very radical remnant. The King will present Himself as He really is and people shall marvel.

We have entered the harvest of the end of the age. The greatest ingathering of souls is just beginning. The greatest move of God we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes is upon us. The gross darkness that is upon the people will only make the light of God’s kingdom appear brighter.

During the time of Israel’s greatest apostasy was also the time when the greatest prophets arose and championed God’s cause for a return to radical righteousness. God is calling many to herald the truth of the gospel with fresh fire.

The greatest days of Church history are not in our past but in our present and in our the future. Believing this will activate you and move you into it. We are crossing a bridge where all the moves and activity of God from past generations will converge. The Holy Spirit is retro-fitting all past outpourings and various anointings and rolling them all into one and reactivating them for our times.

We are entering into the glorious Church era which is far different than what the Church has been known for today. Jesus will build His ekklesia that will shake the gates of hell. The true Church has never been built by man. Christ shall define His true Church and further expose the hybrid empty form of showy superficial Christianity.

The Holy Spirit is brooding over His people and moving them into a divine dissatisfaction. There is a hunger among the remnant for His real glory. Hope is rising and callings are being activated and reactivated and many more will now voice their faith.

Our books are forerunners to personal holiness, the move of God, and the return of the Lord. They also combat the departure from the faith and the turning away from the truth we are seeing in our day. Our new book  Cleansing The Temple is resonating with many readers.
