He's coming back very soon for a people with pure hearts; a spotless, blameless bride; a people that fear Him and obey him; to a kingly people who rule over the world, the flesh, and the devil within their own hearts; a people who He rules over as Sovereign Lord and King. Everything and everyone else will be burned up in His all consuming fire. Whenever people hear this message, their flesh rebels against it, and they turn on the messenger accusing him of all manner of evil. They are deluded, thinking they serve God, when in actuality they serve Satan and their own flesh.
Yes, we have entered a time of great sorrow. All we can do is continue to preach His Word, and to examine ourselves lest we also be found reprobate.
I wonder about David Wilkerson's death at this time. I've heard a few of his recent messages, and they all call for the repentance of the church, and a turning back to God. The time is so short, and I often wonder if it's not about up for the people of God. David Wilkerson's death may be a sign that time is up--I don't know. I hope beyond hope that it's not. Yet, who is listening to the message??
If Jesus, the Word of God, is not King in our hearts, then we are not in His Kingdom.
But joy comes in the morning! The Lord says so!!
Yes – what a life this is. The process of pain we go through is because all true believers are actually dying daily by taking up their cross. At the same time the Spirit of life is working in us to mould us into the likeness of Jesus in resurrection power. Both death and life side by side, moment by moment – dying to the world and all its attractions, the flesh and all its attachments, and Satan's power; and finding our new Spirit led life hid in Christ (Col 3). The strange compulsion of the fire – quietly demanding action from us (woe unto me if I don't.....) and yet always respecting our free choice to obey (come, follow me....).
And yes - one of the great anti - apostasy speakers has now gone home for his reward, but what of America? Who is big enough now and will stand in the gap now and call out those who preach easy believism, flaky prophetic utterances, and weird signs and wonders? Who will stand against such things?
Look and wonder in your hearts for the Lord says:
Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time . But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. (Is 57:1)
It was a sudden and untimely death; seeming improper for one so esteemed in the body. Now as more and more of those who resist that which has invaded the churches are taken out of the way then the awaited sword will fall, and those who truly know their God need to pray. More than ever, now, pray for discernment - for an increase in evil is coming. A great falling away but great opportunity is also here to win the hearts of those who cast around desperately for truth and light as darkness increases.
David's ministry was WORLDWIDE and all in the churches worldwide need to understand and know how much of an influence this man had to resist the forces of evil. That influence is now greatly diminished and where now is the voice to call out repent, and expose evil in the pulpit? God has His servants and He will reveal them in their time - the fearless ones who will give His word and will count all loss for the honour of serving God in this hour.
