The Former Reign and Latter Reign Is Now!
I’ve been listening to The Book of Acts over and over and over and one thing that The Holy Spirit emphasized to me, was that persecution came because The Word of God preached and demonstrated, caused them to lose their financial gain in many cities.
These people would do anything, and in fact would risk their eternal Salvation, to keep power and their money.
It makes sense that Jesus said that “the Love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Timothy 6:10) and again, “you can’t serve God and Mammon or rather money!” (Matthew 6:24)
Preach With Signs Following
The second thing that God is speaking through this, is that we are to preach, but we must preach with signs following.
They added thousands to The Church as they laid hands on the sick, raised the dead, spoke with tongues and prophesied!
They saw the Gospel demonstrated! This is The Church that is arising in this hour! It is the former house and the latter house all rolled into one!
It is a company of believers who truly believe that when Jesus said in Matthew 16:17-18,
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
That He meant it!
Do Not Quench The Holy Spirit!
If you are trying to keep your denomination alive and will not allow this in your Church and you are not equipping the people to operate in these gifts and are ashamed of the moving of The Holy Spirit, and if you are not doing any of this because you think that you are going to lose your money and Church members, then I prophesy to you that you will not be a part of the move of God in these last days.
God is stripping His Church down to two things…
- To those who are not afraid and ashamed of His Presence, Power, and Glory and
- To those who will love like He Loved, because perfect love casts out all fear!

Could it be, there are prophets and prophetess’s out there that have not bowed their knee to money and and Baal?,
I awoke this morning with this thought, the “former and latter reign”..indulge me:
If one thinks of the 1948 revival and then the 1968 revival (Jesus people) as a type of this revival (Joel 2;23-24), the later and former reign(rain) in the same month (generation)..my first Pastor (still alive) and I abundantly were saved in this same “type season” (he was saved in 45′ and I in 78′ as teenagers) = my thought (revelation) is were seeing a unction and love of God in Canada right now,,,freedom protesters loving and actually chasing away drug abuse/crime and homelessness (by helping), there is zero OD’s in Ottawa,homeless are fed and clothed and downtown crime is “0”….dozens of area’s in Canada are like this (and they were real bad 2 weeks ago)!
Truth, and so beautifully stated! Thank you for sharing with us. God bless you.
