“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of Hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion,” Isaiah 8:18.
Christ in us will appear this year
There is an appearing of the Christ that will come through his people this year and it is the Ephesians 4:13 “measure of the fullness of Christ church.” it is the Romans 8:21 manifest sons of God church! It is the Isaiah 60, “Arise shine for your light has come,” saints of God!
Yes, He is about to appear in His people to bring forth the greatest harvest that the world has ever seen!
Will you be like those in Israel who did not recognize Him or will you be the one who embraces Him as mighty signs and wonders begin to take place in His people?
Who will recognize the true Christ?
I tell you that Jesus didn’t come like they thought He would, and Simeon and Anna were the ones who had waited on the Christ child, because they had been promised that they would!
They sought The Lord for when and how this would happen and when He would come.
Many years ago, while in a season of seeking God, He took me to Isaiah 60:1 and showed me that, “this would happen in my life time.” I am now seeing the beginning of it, and this will be a time when there will be a great speeding up of what God has shown us will happen through his people, but, will you recognize it when it comes, or will you despise the signs that God is about to do through His people?
With every appearing of God’s power and might comes a separation
The Lord is saying,
“With this move of God on the earth, there will come many signs and wonders that will bring a separation like they did when Moses brought out the children of Israel and you must know me to know the genuine!
It is time to seek Me as never before!
When you know Me, you will also recognize Me!
When you seek Me, you will recognize the counterfeit! Do not be deceived in this hour but come under the shadow of My wings and I will give you eyes to see the true Christ, in My people.
Be expectant as Simenon and I will give you revelation to know the difference.”
“Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simenon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the holy spirit was on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen The Lord’s messiah. Moved by the spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the law required, Simenon took Him in his arms and praised God, saying:
“Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
You may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
Which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
A light for revelation to the gentiles,
And the glory of your people Israel.”
The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. Then Simenon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”” Luke 2:25-35.
