The enemy doesn’t like this season we are in, because he knows it is a time when God’s people become very aware and alert in the Spirit, and He also knows that it is the time of year, that many predict that Jesus will return.
So just like when he rose up when he heard the Prophets saying that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem, he starts trying to steal this word that “The Knowledge of The Glory Of The Lord will cover the Earth as the waters cover the sea!” He is so afraid of the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ, not only His return, but his appearance in His people!
He can not stand the thought that, no matter what he does, it only causes God’s people to arise, full of the power of the Holy Spirit and even get closer to coming into unity! He has played his last hand and has no more tricks up his sleeve that the true church is not onto!
He thought when Facebook was created that he would use it to corrupt people’s minds and hearts, but God’s people are taking over cyberspace too!! They are learning how to walk in love, power, and resurrection life through the force of unity as we come together to pray for one another and support one another!
Tonight I just want to say [on Facebook] that, I am so thankful and proud of how people are growing up into Him in this day and hour! We, together are getting to look a lot more like Jesus and frankly, I am thankful to be in this dance that we call life with all of you!
This is truly the great and terrible day of the Lord but if we will begin to rejoice in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, then we will be full of joy and the joy of the Lord will be our strength! Joy is and will be the force that keeps our hope in believing strong and Faith is the substance of things hoped for!
Jesus will return looking for faith upon the earth and we prove our faith by rejoicing when things look like all hope is lost in the natural! So strengthen one another in these trying times and love one another fervently because by this will all know that we are His disciples! I love you dear friends, but more than that … He Loves You!
“Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day. For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting,” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (AMP)
