BRINGING PEACE TO THE NATIONS
Matthew 24:7-9 NIV: Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. (8) All these are the beginning of birth pains. (9) “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
Prophetically, we are presently living in the TRANSITION between verses 8-9 of the scriptures above: hence THIS PROPHETIC PRESENT TRUTH MESSAGE!
Luke 21:25-28 NIV: “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. (26) People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. (27) At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. (28) When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
These scriptures describe the signs of the coming of the Lord Jesus: FIRSTLY HIS COMING IN US: in the perfection and fullness of Christ and SECONDLY HIS COMING FOR US at the rapture of the man-child church (Rev.12.5).
The present DISTRESS OF THE NATIONS or birth pangs caused by the abounding iniquity (Mt.24.12) in BOTH the church and the world and consequent perilous end-times (2 Tim.3.1-5) will ULTIMATELY CULMINATE IN THE BIRTH AND MANIFESTATION OF THE PERFECT MAN-CHILD CHURCH!
This is revealed in
Romans 8:19-30 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. (20) For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope (21) that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. (22) We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. (26) In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. (27) And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. (28) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (29) For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. (30) And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
