You are starting to see the beginnings of sorrows which starts with the gloom of lost hope! Matthew 24:8.
Because the world has no hope, the gloom and heavy overcast conditions will turn to darkness and then gross darkness, Isaiah 60:2.
However. the believers will need to call for the help of My Spirit or the gloom will drag them down to a place of ineffectiveness. The heavy overcast caused by the suffering multitudes will overwhelm all believers preoccupied with the affairs of life, before they realize it.
Slowly their joy will be replaced with a sense of uselessness. This will be followed by lies from hell that I am no longer with them, or going to use them. During this overcast period, fiery darts of harassing problems will seem to be hurled from every direction.
At times the overcast will be so heavy, that you will not know how to pray. But those of you who have surrendered to the infilling of My Spirit with the use of tongues, will be able to let Holy Spirit come to your aid and bear you up in your weakness; for you will not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as you ought, but the Spirit Himself will meet your supplication and plead in your behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance, Romans 8:26.
By far, the majority of Spirit filled western believers have treated the baptism of My Spirit and a recreational experience to be enjoyed at services or special occasions according to their choosing. However, things are about to drastically change during the time of sorrows, as the infilling changes from a recreational experience to a spiritual weapon of war and a tool of survival. The gifts will become tools to defeat death on all sides.
Those who claimed great faith, will have it tested some for the first time, like never before.
When it’s spiritually bright faith cannot claimed, or known if it even exists. Days of spirituality overcast conditions begin to reveal if faith even exists. When it’s very heavy overcast the tests begin, but when the fiery darts start, real faith becomes clear because only those left standing actually possess it.
During this time of severe battle even the strongest faith, will need My Spirits push to overcome. As I look at the condition of the western church, I must again ask will I find faith in the west, when I return?
The answer is yes, because, “as the darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness the people: I will arise upon the faith filled Spirit filled believers, and My glory shall be seen upon them. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to their light, and kings to the brightness of their rising,” Isaiah 60:2-3.
The question is will your faith stand the test?
