Signs of the Times:
A Shift Has Taken Place!
“And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?” Matthew 16:3.
Unfortunately a very large percentage of the Church today is asleep and ignorant of God’s times and seasons. However there are those who are awake to what God is saying to the Church and the world today.
On November 13th 2016 there was a phenomenon rarely seen which appeared in the sky. According to NASA, this rare occurrence of a super moon marked the closest a full super moon has been to earth in almost 68 years.
Actually the last super moon was last seen in 1948 the year Israel became a nation. And the 1948 great move of God began in the Church. This in itself is extremely significant. Israel became a nation in 1948 and the Church entered an unprecedented season of power evangelism.
This saw the rise of great ministries such as Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, William Branham, T L Osbourne and many others. This became known as the 1948 great move of God. The fact that this great move of God was ushered in by a super moon is of great significance to us today. That shift that occurred in the world and the Church in 1948 is about to happen again this time at least seven times greater.
This super moon appeared up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than the year’s smallest full moon according to NASA scientist Noah Petro. He advised people hoping to catch an eyeful of the super moon to find a dark place far from city lights, as well as away from tall buildings and trees, which might obstruct a view of the moon, especially when it is low in the sky.
We know the moon is a type or picture of the Church, which gets its light from the sun, and reflects the light of the sun.
“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.” Malachi 4:2-3.
This prophetic imagery of the prophet Malachi spoke of the days, we are now living in.
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne,” Revelation 12:1-5.
WHAT IS GOD SAYING?
This last Super Moon occurred when the sun, the moon, and the earth were in perfect alignment. The sun – Jesus, the moon – the Church and the earth have lined up for an unparalleled event. Namely the coming forth of the true Sons of God and the beginning of the greatest harvest the world has ever seen.
A major shift both in the Church and the world took place at the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles this year. This shift is extremely significant and affects the nations of the world and the Church.
Things will never be the same again, this shift draws a line in the sand indicating that time has run out for many things and a new day has been birthed. We need to remember that birthing is painful and messy. No new move of God is without some seemingly crazy things happening. Make room for the unusual to start happening, we have not been this way before.
The nations of the world will see major change, this has already begun with the United Kingdom exiting the European Union triggering a chain reaction which is still occurring. There is a forming of a one world government headed by the European Union and the United Nations.
Both Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama will seek to manipulate the UN in order to gain influence, seeking to establish their agenda. The present Pope will also be a major player in this.
Regarding the grace of God that was extended to grant more time for the Church to get its act together and walk in righteousness, this extension has been closed.
Judgment will begin at the house of the LORD. God will have a pure Church, walking in the character and purity of the LORD Himself. The cleansing of the Church is now on Gods agenda. God will have a Church walking in purity and righteousness. The time of easy grace is coming to an end.
“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, (unrighteousness),” Jude 1:4.
Using the grace of God as an excuse to walk in unrighteousness will be judged.
Prepare for the harvest. The Church must get ready and prepare for a great harvest. This requires preparation in the natural as well as the spiritual. Think big, how will you as a Christian leader handle a great influx of new Christians?
Pastors train your people quickly to handle a harvest. Time is of the essence now.
America and the world are divided over Donald Trump winning the race to become president of the United States of America. Even Christian leaders are divided over this issue. Some Christian leaders even say that Donald Trump is another Hitler.
The question is, what does God think about this? Many of these Christian leaders obviously have not stopped to ask Him.
The past Obama administration has led the country down a pathway of unrighteousness, turning the nation away from God and into iniquity, condoning evil, at least in God’s eyes.
“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law,” Psalm 94:20.
Laws have been passed regarding Abortion and Homosexuality that came from Satan’s throne of iniquity.
So what about Donald Trump? Many Christian leaders are saying God would never endorse a man like Donald Trump. My answer to that is have you ever read your Bible right through?
God said that He raised up Pharaoh for His purposes and plans in order to bless His people the Israelites, and make His name known across the earth.
“For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might show my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth,” Romans 9:17.
God raised up Pharaoh an idol worshiper and an evil tyrant in order to bless God’s people Israel, and to proclaim God’s name across the earth.
Also God raised up a heathen king who was an idol worshiper putting him into power in order to deliver God’s people the Israelites. This King was a heathen tyrant by the name of Cyrus.
Let me just say this. Let’s call the spade a spade. Those who voted Barrack Obama into office were the people’s choice not God’s. And the result of this choice is now evident, it lead the nation down into great evil, among other things legalizing same sex marriage and the murdering of babies in the womb.
However God has as it were played His trump card (pun not intended) putting His man into office in order to save the nation. This does not mean America will have a smooth ride, there are very difficult times ahead for America.
But believe me, if Hillary Clinton had won, the presidency it would have spelt absolute devastation and disaster for America.
Donald Trump is God’s blessing for America. He will be used to turn America back to God and help to protect America and Israel from those nations of the world who want to see America and Israel destroyed.
Like it or not we need to side with God on this issue.
On June 14th, 2016 Donald trump turned 70 years old. On His first day in office on the 21st Jan 2017 Donald Trump will be: 70 years 7 months and 7 days old.
The number 7 in scripture has the meaning of Divine Perfection. Donald Trump was the perfect man who God chose to turn America around. If you don’t like it then you can complain to God about the choice that He God made.
There is a great shift and a realigning of the nations. The goat nations are realigning and starting to separate from the sheep nations see Matthew 25:32-33.
There is a shifting and realignment of the world’s monetary systems which will be a trigger for the true Joseph ministries to arise with an enormous transfer of wealth which will birth a new Kingdom Economy in direct opposition to the Antichrist system.
Many have been given prophetic words which have not as yet been fulfilled or have as yet not come to pass. Do not be discouraged. This shift will release and begin to bring to pass those words that have been given to you by the LORD.
To everything there is a time and a season. We have just entered a season that has been on the LORD’s calendar for a very long time. Much of what God had given us in the past was for this season. This shift will see words coming to pass that were given many years ago.
Many real and powerful prophetic words which were given during the Charismatic Move of God which ended in the mid-seventies; will start now to unfold in this new season. Get ready change is on the way.
After 40 long years in the wilderness the time had come to move on. Likewise, the time to cross over to the new day has come.
“And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it,” Joshua 3:3.
When you see the Ark moving follow after it. There was to be a two thousand cubits space between the Ark and the people. Over two thousand years ago Jesus passed over, through his death on the cross and His resurrection. Jesus was our forerunner.
We are now entering the third day. And it’s time to move as the shift has occurs.
“Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore. And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you,” Joshua 3:4-5.
We need a fresh commitment and a deeper level of sanctification in order to move on to the new day.
Notice where the waters of the river Jordan dried up up-stream. They dried up at a place called Adam.
“And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest, that the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho,” Josh 3:15-6.
The flow from Adam was cut off. For us today this crossing over to the new day a new Promised Land occurs when the adamic natures is cut off. It is time to move on in newness of life sanctified and ready for the master’s use. This day will leave behind the old adamic nature and enabling us to walk in the life, power, and nature of the second Adam Jesus. Truly this is a new day, a new long awaited season, the final lap as it were.
“And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal (rolling away) unto this day,” Josh 5:9.
This shift will now open up the way for us to break away from the pull of this earth on our lives, enabling us to walk with the LORD in heavenly places.
A Shift in Nature
The debate over global warming rages on. There is no doubt that weather patterns are changing. Right now as I write this in Queensland Australia our lawn is brown and dry. Normally at this time of the year we get a reasonable amount of rain, however, November this year here has been the driest on record.
As the argument over global warming continues, there is no doubt that these weather conditions and cycles have happened in the past, it is not something new and we are in a season again of global warming.
However this season appears to be happening much quicker than in past times, no doubt caused by our modern carbon emitting society in which we live. That said, nature is rebelling. We will see much greater frequencies of earthquakes as the plates beneath us continue to collide.
In the last two weeks we have seen earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan. Drought continue to increase in many nations along with famines on a scale we have not seen before, most of which never reach the media.
This shift in nature will increase, we will see some very wild weather along with earthquakes and tsunamis which will cause vast numbers of people to turn to the LORD for help. This will continue to sweep a harvest of souls into the Kingdom Of God. Nature i.e. the weather and the animal kingdom will slowly begin to assist and support Gods remnant people in way that will be seen to be amazing. (More of this at another time).
A shift in Power
In this new season we are going to see a very real shift in power. Power struggles among leadership in governments and nations will escalate. There will be struggle in the United Nations (UN) as Barrack Obama seeks to hold a controlling position the UN, he along with the Clintons will try to manipulate the situation in order to gain a controlling influence in the UN.
This would not be good for Israel as both the Obamas and the Clintons are very anti-Israel. However Donald Trump will be a friend to Israel.
The power struggles in Europe are being orchestrated by four powerful fallen angels. Nevertheless God is not just powerful He is all Powerful. As the antichrist spirit continues to manipulate European Governments the battle there will continue.
The other side of the coin is this. God is about to empower the true Church with such authority that has never been seen in the Church eclipsing even what the early Church experienced, in fact seven times greater.
God is about to release upon the true Church such power and authority that will astound us.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father,” John 14:12.
Jesus said that everything He did we will do. But more than that, He said that we will do even greater works than He did. That is amazing. We know only a little of the works that Jesus did.
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen,” John 21:25.
The true remnant Church is about to enter now into a new day of amazing power and authority. Doing even greater works that Jesus did. What is quaintly called by many “Philip’s Transport”, will become very common as God empowers His people to preach the gospel all over the world.
Whole teams will be supernaturally transported all over the world to preach the gospel of the Kingdom with truly amazing signs and wonders. As the pull of this earth on His people decreases many will have access to and walk in Heavenly Places.
The veil between the Church on earth and the Church in heaven will become so thin that encounters with the cloud of witnesses will be come to be seen as normal. We are truly entering into a new day, a shift has taken place and WE MUST PRESS INTO THIS NEW DAY.
It is up to you and me to press in and take hold, by faith, that which has been released to us in this new major season.
