A month ago today, 17th December, in A Great Falling Away; Time of Divine Separation Has Begun I re-posted Veronika West’s revisiting a prophecy of 2018 and noted that it speaks into what the Lord opened to me ten years earlier on the parable of the wheat and tares. In The End-game is in Now in Play I tell what happened upon opening my Bible to check that parable – I’d distinctly heard “This is ALL about to be fulfilled”.
It is particularly poignant, therefore, to note a similar phrase quoted by Neil Mackereth , whose evening courses on End-times at Winchester Vineyard began our friendship. He now writes, in which I embolden certain text:
“Dear Richard, Things continue to develop at dazzling speed, as the world groans on its axis!
“The Lord has laid on my heart the urgency of the moment and our accountability as watch-keepers and evangelists; something that you are anointed for and brilliantly and conscientiously carrying forward. Herewith what He has been saying to me.”
THE GREAT DIVIDE
The Lord reminded me that the Great Commission bestows His mantle of authority on His disciples and the Holy Spirit empowers us to go and preach the Gospel to all nations. He told me that the “Great Reset” is not from Him, and that a Great Divide is imminent. We are approaching “the Valley of Decision”, where God makes His decision. We need to have made our decision before we get there!
We have heard much about the New World Order, which will replace, subsume and/or incorporate: the United Nations; the World Health Organisation; the World Bank; the International Monetary Fund; and the World Trade Organisation.
Soon, the highly influential (but non-governmental) World Economic Forum will take steps to rationalise world-wide economic and financial management, either as part of the move to an integrated New World Order (NWO), or as a catalytic “Great Reset”, that will lead to the NWO.
A charismatic and very accomplished leader will arise on the world stage, along with a dynamic religious leader who will introduce a new world-wide religion. None of this should be a surprise to those who are committed to Jesus and study the Word of God. There are many prophecies and references in the Bible that describe how End-times events will unfold. The Lord said to me: “It is wrong to pray against these things: all Biblical prophecy will be fulfilled.”
The vast majority of people have chosen to ignore the End-times prophetic scriptures, and the life-style guidance in the Bible. “The still small voice of God”, and His gentler ways of instruction and encouragement, have been rebuffed again and again.
And so, a calamity is upon us. God has broken up the conditions (circumstances) that prevailed under the era of His permissive will. He has allowed crises to develop that will create a perfect “storm”: this is “tough love”. Why? Because time is very short and God is occasioning a situation where a decision must be made, ie., will we do what God asks, or continue in rebellion to ultimate disaster?
If we profess and truly seek to be disciples of Jesus Christ, there will be no hesitation in our decision to surrender our will to Him unequivocally and irrevocably. In fact, for many of us that decision is history.
We recognise that the Covid and climatic crises, along with world economic instability and related poverty, migration, ethnic cleansing, war and misery, are all in line with what Jesus said would happen, as we approach “time of tribulation”.
The world is staggeringly perverse: even so, it is God’s hope, in Fatherly love, that people will be driven to such a point of despair that they will humble themselves, get down on their knees and cry out to Him for help. “Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation” (2 Corinthians 7:10).
Jesus said: “I came not to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34). The time for a sympathetic, restrained message is over. Attempts to keep a foot in both camps will result in perplexity. The Gospel message must be insistent and merciless, and send a sword through every peace that is not founded on a personal relationship with Jesus.
I tell you the truth: we stand in the cusp of a Great Divide.
