There are some dark days ahead of us.
Once again it seems that Satan really believes he can beat Jesus Christ down. He did the same at Calvary, where to all intents and purposes, he appeared to have defeated to Son of God by having Him killed on the Roman cross.
But, three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, collected the keys to death, hell, and the grave from a very surprised Satan, and ascended to sit at the Fathers right hand — exactly as prophesied in scripture for centuries beforehand.
So what does Satan expect this time around? Much biblical prophecy points to these days — “wars, rumours of wars”, “nations and leaders raising themselves up – way beyond their capabilities”, earthquakes, fires, storms!
Everything pointing to mayhem and Satan having a ball at our expense. Yet, as with the original scenario, prophecy points to a very different outcome.
Prophecy, biblical and 21st Century, points to a ‘Great Falling Away’! Is this not happening? Have not great swathes of The Church followed their own teaching rather than God’s?
Is there not a great watering down of Christ’s Gospel message — no heaven, no hell, no repentance, no death to self, no humility, etc etc?
Has The Church not virtually extinguished the ‘Light of the World’? And has its salt not become bland and tasteless?
Nearly every prophet worth the name, has spoken into this.
But also, nearly every prophet worth the name has also spoken of the final Harvest, the great Gathering-in, otherwise known as End-time Revival.
Prophecy, both biblical and 21st Century, is full of Signs, Wonders, Miracles, and ‘greater things’ the Jesus spoke of, alongside a great harvest of souls yet to come to Salvation.
Just as it did two thousand years ago, history will record that Satan once again tried and failed to oust the Son of God from His position as The Light of the World.
As I said, there are some very dark days ahead. I believe we will go right to the very edge of war and Satan will even appear to have won.
BUT — God will turn things around. Satan will walk right into The LORD’s Hands, as God turns everything round.
There will be a great Revival, there will be great persecution against Christians, there will be a huge upheaval in politics — particularly in America and Europe.
The ‘Swamp’ will be drained — Trump will be justified and returned to his rightful place — China, Russia, North Korea, and other aggressors will once again back off from their sabre rattling stance.
In fact I believe Russia and America will become allies — albeit a little wary of each other — and a new respect will be established between them.
I also believe the CCP will suddenly dissipate into a much less powerful and aggressive state.
Yes, dark days are coming, but the Light of the World has yet to have His say on everything.
And the Rapture? Who knows other than the Father Himself? Even Jesus said He doesn’t know!
As The Word of God says, so many times, “FEAR NOT” for God is still in control and everything is safe in His hands!
Glory to God and Hallelujah! \o/
Dark Days Clarification: A brief word of clarification following on from my Dark Days Word.
Two main things:
First, this is not going to be a cakewalk! As The LORD said to Linda yesterday, “Did I ever say the shaking will be pretty?”
In other words, we’re in for some serious shocks of disclosure.
- Disclosures of The Church, upon hearing which, many will bury their heads in the sand trying to pretend it’s untrue!
- Disclosures that will kill off several very high profile ministers and ministries and,
- Disclosures in the political world, which will reveal the true abhorrent evil that we’re living with — hidden in plain sight, if only we’d care enough to look!
Second, regarding persecution, there’s nothing Satan would like more than to silence and destroy The Church. He will use anything and everything at his disposal to achieve that aim.
In particular, I believe, he will use ‘hate speech’ rulings to silence the many who quote scripture — actually he will use political correctness, in all it’s utter stupidity, to prosecute and persecute any who, accidentally or otherwise, manage to fall foul of race or sexuality perceived rulings.
Christians are top of the target list of those who would control every aspect of our lives. Before WWII, mobs roamed cities persecuting the Jewish people — I’m prophesying a similar holocaust but with Christians as the target this time around!
The shaking is NOT going to be pretty.
Dark days ahead certainly include all the things and more that I’ve listed here — on top of revival.
So yes, there’s danger ahead, but there’s also great hope too.
It might not be as savage as Rome in Nero’s reign, but one cannot but think that it could get pretty rough.
God will win of course, but it’s not going to be very pretty!
