Do you get the impression the Lord is turning our faces – as though holding them in His hands – to look specifically at the important matter of His return?
In fact, I submit to you it’s on God’s GPS system, ie. His Global Prophecy Signalling for the following reason:
My offering to a forum what Nina audibly heard on the Second Advent coming sooner than we think or expect, as recounted in Back to Biblical Basics, was met by a wariness on the matter of ‘timing’.
Many will recall claims, mainly by American church leaders, notoriously setting dates for Jesus’ return and which have proven false. Even the Book of Revelation’s penultimate verse says it will happen ‘soon’ – but nearly 2,000 years is not soon! In my opinion, this timing is in the supra-natural realm where things appointed for the future exist but have yet to manifest upon the earth, rather like faith is the substance and evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1) – or as Apostle Peter explains definitively,
‘But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:8 NKJV)
I’ve blogged elsewhere that prophets don’t set any timing upon fulfillment of words and visions for such an insight is a rarity, and it becomes a measure of being a true or false prophet! Thus, Chuck Pierce, Dr Sharon Stone and Veronika West put their reputations on the line when prophesying about major changes this month, as summarised herein.
In replying via Messenger to the forum I mentioned having recently received papers on End-times. Two contributors to this blog, unbeknown to the other, prepared them almost simultaneously in the last week of June! So, I got nudged to close my response with a previously unconsidered remark, ‘It’s as though the Lord’s deliberately turning our faces to look specifically at this important matter’.
What I didn’t know was that, whilst I was writing, the Lord was confirming that final idea by GPS! Upon sending my message and returning to the top of my email in-tray I found a new email from an overseas intercessor stressing this very issue:
‘I saw today the posts you put up over the weekend. Keep it up dude, that is your calling – “Looking for signs of Jesus’ return.” That is your focus…’
Therefore, much as we appreciate ‘rhema’ words from the Lord, it is very important not to neglect the prime importance of Biblical, End-times, prophecy. It takes precedence as being in the sovereign will of God, within which contemporary prophecy is interwoven.
Next, let’s consider those other two author’s papers…click to read > >
