The LORD is raising up believers who have tenacity and perseverance. They are overcomers who have survived through intense warfare.
They are those who have experienced challenging trials but are coming back stronger to strengthen and ignite other believers.
They are those who have been in the fiery furnace but came out unharmed.
They are those who got thrown in the lion’s den but walked out victorious.
In the Book of Acts, The LORD did extraordinary miracles through the hands of Paul. The lame were healed and the dead were raised.
In Acts chapter fourteen, Paul was stoned and left for dead. When the believers encircled his body, he miraculously stood up.
He didn’t retreat in the warfare, but he continued on ministering and encouraging other believers. He taught them how to be strong and persevere through difficult trials.
The LORD is showing me that Satan has desired to sift many of us as wheat, but Jesus is restoring us so that we will come back and strengthen our brethren.
The battles have been fierce for many, but we are going to arise with a vengeance and rescue those who have become weary and convert those who are trapped in religious traditions.
Some of you have been dishonored and falsely accused but you have not let go of your dream. Those of you who have been delivered from the strongholds of the enemy will strengthen the younger ones of the next generation.
The LORD is raising up light bearers in this dark season.
They are those who carry the torch and kindle the flame of those who have become discouraged.
They will release the glory and dispel the darkness. They will ignite the passion in people’s hearts that once burned for Jesus.
They will teach others how to take their eyes off the natural circumstances and focus on the promises of God.
They will lift the spiritual fatigue that has settled on many and in return The LORD is going to bring restoration and restitution for all that has been lost in their personal lives and ministries.
“Peter, my dear friend, listen to what I’m about to tell you. Satan has demanded to come and sift you like wheat and test your faith. But I have prayed for you, Peter, that you would stay faithful to me no matter what comes. Remember this: after you have turned back to me and have been restored, make it your life mission to strengthen the faith of your brothers,” Luke 22:31-32 (TPT).
“Some of the Jews who had opposed Paul and Barnabas in Antioch and Iconium arrived and stirred up the crowd against them. They stoned Paul and dragged his body outside the city and left him for dead. When the believers encircled Paul’s body, he miraculously stood up! Paul stood and immediately went back into the city. The next day he left with Barnabas for Derbe,” Acts 14:19-20 (TPT).
“At each place they went, they strengthened the lives of the believers, and encouraged them to go deeper in their faith. And they taught them, “It is necessary for us to enter into the realm of God’s Kingdom, because that’s the only way we will endure our many trials and persecutions,” Acts 14:22 (TPT).
