Encounters This Month Pertaining to The Kingdom — From Now Until Pentecost
As I was reading this morning, The LORD began to highlight several things to me that I believe have a significance for these next days leading up to Pentecost.
I believe He is speaking to many right now and giving them dreams, visions, encounters, and revelations such as they have never had.
One of the reasons for this is because we are in a very revelatory season and we are about to transition into this new Kingdom Age that we have been seeing and praying for for years and for many of us decades!
All that God has shown us is about to begin to come to pass!
So as I was reading this morning, God spoke some things to me out of the first chapter of Acts and said that “this will be a pattern for what you are about to encounter in the days ahead!”
The first thing that stood out to me as He Highlighted it was this verse….
”.. to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God,” Acts 1:3 (NKJV).
Many Things Will Mirror the Acts of the Apostles in This Day!
First during that forty days after his resurrection, He showed Himself alive.
The LORD spoke to me and said, “In the next forty days from Pentecost, many in the Church will be getting a visitation from Me.”
And there is a reason for that, because secondly, He wants to speak to you of things pertaining to The Kingdom!
This month we are in a season like the apostles were in that day of uncertainty about what will happen to our countries, and our states, our households, our families, our children and our ministries.
We are shut-in, in many cases and like the apostles of old, fear has gripped our hearts!
But God is saying, “I have seen all that you are going through right now, but I want you to know that I AM about to do something amazing in your day! This is only a transition and reset!”
Things Pertaining to The Kingdom
In these next days leading up to Pentecost there will be visitations if you will be still and know that He is trying to speak to you about things pertaining to The Kingdom!
He will begin to be in your midst and many will have visitations from The LORD, because He wants to speak to you about Kingdom matters on the earth and just what this new era will look like and then what your part is in it.
He wants to speak to many Church leaders about how to transition from Church as usual to the mobile, church Triumphant!
He wants to speak to many about how to transition out of the old mundane and into the new alive Church!!
He wants to speak to many about new ways of getting His Gospel out in the most expedient, economical, way and how to use the tools that are in the earth to do that.
He kind of laughed when He spoke to me about this and said. “Many of My Ministers have been preaching against the internet, but I created it for My end time purposes!”
And then He said, “Al Gore did not create it!”
Ha! He said, “I want to come and talk to them about the many ways that I want My People to take over media outlets and many systems of this world that are now being controlled by the enemy!”
It is time to root up and then begin to plant so this pause has been an uprooting, but this Pentecost will begin to be a Kingdom Planting! Stop fighting the shift and watch for your visitation!
“I want to speak to you of things pertaining to The Kingdom!”
Wait for the promise of The Father for power to do this thing!
The LORD says that He understand your hearts are anxious and He has seen the zeal of many and like Peter many have wanted to slash some ears and fight your way out of this, but He is saying that, “these next days in May will be a time of visitation, as you have been in Isolation and the reward of this will be NEW REVELATION for The Kingdom to come on earth as it is in Heaven!”
But then He began to speak about this passage in the same book of Acts.
“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when The Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”” Acts 1:4-8 NKJV.
I Heard Him Saying, “Do Not Go Forth Without My Plan and My Power!”
I heard Him saying, “Do not jump the gun! Do not go forward without Me empowering you from on high!
Do not go out half way and go back to your same old way, because these old foundations are going to fall!
Don’t go back to doing things your way! Wait for me to give you new assignments and new alignments!
You will only be able to face the giants in the land as you are equipped and empowered from me and you have your marching orders from headquarters!
These next few days are a time of waiting on me and a time of me wanting to equip you and speak to you about things pertaining to The Kingdom!
But on Pentecost there is about to be an empowering of My People who have waited and this Empowering will not be by might nor by your power but it will only be by My Spirit” says The LORD!
“And this Pentecost, I AM going to begin to pour out My Spirit upon all flesh!
Your Sons and daughters will come running, not because of your programs and buildings and man made religion, but because of their hunger and desire for the truth and for the Living God!
For the weak will become strong though My Spirit and the outpouring! And you will know that I AM the God who is about to do wonders among you!
So I say to you, wait for Me and you will see on Pentecost the Glory of your God!”
