Most reading this, are probably aware that the whole world has entered a season of transition and transformational changes.
God is never surprised by the things of this world. He is also faithful to tell His Prophets about the changing things regarding mankind and the world. (Amos 3:7).
However, most people including many believers do not really listen to what God is saying.
Most of us will simply stay on the same path doing basically the same things until we are pressed by changing circumstances. Therefore, to cause us to make extreme changes, there must be some strong negative force beyond our control.
If things are working well for us, we usually resist change even if the still small voice within us is telling us to change. (1 Kings 19:12).
‘“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in the Spirit and said, ‘I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.”’ Luke 10:21.
‘“Then He turned to His disciples and said privately, ‘Blessed are the eyes which see the things you see; for I tell you that many prophets and kings have desired to see what you see, and have not seen it, and to hear what you hear, and have not heard it.’” Luke 10:23-24.
Father God, open our spiritual ears to hear and our eyes to see the great works that you are doing in this day. Your Kingdom come, and Your Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Amen!
Massive change is happening across the world.
The world of today is not the same world of even a few decades ago. Increasingly severe changes continue almost daily.
The world changes eventually can cause extreme abrupt change in our personal lives. Life situations that have been productive and stable for many years may suddenly be completely gone. We are forced to look for some other way to sustain life.
Our once stable life is just no longer there. Quickly we realize that our inner sense of wellbeing was much more tied to our circumstances than we may have thought. Our minds cry out for answers. God, where are You? Why did this happen to me?
God’s Purpose for Change
The abrupt changes in our personal lives are tied to the transformation of the world. Mankind has drifted away from God and allowed the rule of Satan and his darkness to usurp control in the world. All of us are in some way affected by the darkness in the world.
God is in the process of delivering mankind from the grip of darkness that is clouding minds and spirits and damaging or wrecking many lives.
Called Out Ones
God is, by His Spirit in Christ, calling out a holy, pure-hearted, people who have fallen in love with God. They have lost their lives in this world and are filled with the life of God in Christ by The Holy Spirit. (Romans 8:18-22).
These people are becoming a Remnant of holy people who hear and follow God, through loving Him and becoming one with Him.
God has revealed His Kingdom reality to them. The Kingdom of God is growing forth on earth in Christ within them, and then into the world.
Cleansing the Land
The land must be cleared of evil darkness to make room for The Kingdom of God coming forth on earth.
As the new generation of true sons and daughters of God mature on earth the power of God works through them and with the holy angels, to destroy darkness.
The Babylonian ways and systems of the world are failing and many of us are still tied into the old dissolving system.
For decades, God has been calling for His people to come out of Babylon. The New Jerusalem Kingdom ways of God are coming forth on earth destroying the old fallen kingdom of darkness. (Revelation 18, 21)
Our Change is Toward the Kingdom of God
Our personal and individual severe changes are the only way to change us and the world around us when we have failed to hear and obey His still small voice.
The first areas of change will be in our hearts, as some of our religious and Babylonian ways are exposed and removed and we turn to really seek God and His Kingdom FIRST in our lives.
This is not punishment. It is deliverance. God loves us and is taking us into His kingdom reality of becoming on earth as it is in heaven.
Many of God’s called people will lose their present life structures as they have been. Relationships, jobs, businesses, fortunes, reputations, and positions in this fallen world life may simply be gone. The door to the riches and shiny things of this life may be closed to us.
We may then be faced with a choice to curse God and die. Or to turn to God with our WHOLE HEART AND LIFE and give him thanks and praise Him until His presence manifests with us and we fall in love with Him. (Job 2:9, Psalm 100:4).
‘“Jesus said to him, “You shall love The LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.’” Matthew 22:37-40.
The glory of His love will fill us and His perfect peace will empower us to endure and prosper in His mighty power. (Isaiah 26:3).
The doors to the riches of heaven will then open unto us and so shall we ever be one with The LORD God Almighty.
The glory and blessings of our life on earth in the reality of The Kingdom of God will be far greater than any of the difficulties of the abrupt changes.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18.
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you The Kingdom,” Luke 12:32.
Be made whole in His love,
