DEMONSTRATING THE POWERS OF THE AGE TO COME 4
Firstly we pray for all our readers to have a joyful, blessed and destiny fulfilling New Year in Jesus Name.
The scripture says in:
Malachi 3:1-3 KJV: Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. (2) But who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? for he [is] like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: (3) And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
This message is to prepare the body of Christ, as we preach the Word on the armour of love, the life scriptures, praying with tongues, groanings, and travail. Just as it was in Pentecost, with the first visitation of the glory coming suddenly, so also the visitation of the glory of the feast of Tabernacles will also be sudden!
The body of Christ is the temple of God. Your soul and your body is the temple of God (1Cor.6: 14-20). The Holy Spirit in dwells in it. He is already in you, but not in fullness, not in fire and not in glory! There are two messengers mentioned in the scripture in Malachi 3:1: One is the prophetic, the second is the apostolic.
The scripture speaks of what will happen with the coming to the temple of the second, apostolic messenger, which represents the fullness of the five-fold ministry offices, and the first of all the ministry offices (1Cor.12: 28).
Malachi 3:2 KJV: But who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he [is] like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
When the fire comes, the Lord will refine us, He will refine our minds, wills, emotions and bodies and also renew our youth like the eagles, so we will be like Caleb at 85 years (Josh.14: 6-12) and Moses at 120 years (Dt. 34.7)!
When you were baptised in the Holy Spirit in Pentecost how did you know that you got it? You spoke in tongues! When this imminent outpouring of the Spirit comes, you will know that you have it because it will come as a fire on the inside! You will know! Every last vestige of the love of sin will be burnt up! Your eyes will be like flames of fire and you will truly love righteousness and hate iniquity. You will not hate iniquity because the pastor is trying to persuade you; you will hate it with total passion and therefore God, even thy God, will anoint you with the power of the Spirit without measure! That’s why it will be fire on the inside and glory on the outside. Selah!
The scripture says in:
Malachi 3:3 KJV: And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.
Your prayer, praise and worship will become pure. We thank God for what we have now, but we have not yet seen pure prophetic worship!
It has been prophesied that Nigeria will experience prophetic worship before the next elections in 2019. It is going to be a fulfilment of the feasts of Tabernacles. When the glory visits Nigeria, the people will vote properly; the power of God will sweep entire cities, entire states and men will not vote as people bribe them to vote, but will vote as God tells them to vote!
The fulfillment of, and manifestation of the glory is a necessary prerequisite for Nigeria to fulfil her prophetic destiny. That destiny in the whole counsel of God is the fulfilment of the feasts of Tabernacles, the demonstration of the powers of the age to come that will change Nigeria. Then people all over the world will say that if Nigeria can change anybody can change! And as a result, many other nations will come to the brightness of God’s rising through His Church in the land.
Hosea 6:2-3 KJV: After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. (3) Then shall we know, [if] we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter [and] former rain unto the earth.
The preceding scripture describe the fulfilment of the feasts of Tabernacles. Two days represents about two thousand years. To revive means giving life to us. The revival is internal cleansing perfection; the raising up is the manifestation of the glory, and is what will cause everybody see us as we manifest the glory!
The Bible says;
John 12:32 KJV: And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
The people will follow us as we follow Christ. When they see us do exactly what the Lord Jesus did the miracles of healing, prosperity and other mighty works, they will follow.
Hosea 6:3 NIV: Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”
There are good people in the Church, people that have a good heart but who have been confused by wrong leadership and wrong teaching. But when they see the glory, they will say, “This is our God we have waited for him” (Isa.25:9).
The Church will no longer however just be teaching about the former rain: “Get born again, be filled with the Holy Spirit, get healing and deliverance.” They will be teaching, “Get born again, be filled with the Holy Spirit, get healing and deliverance and go on to perfection.” That is the former and latter rain together!
Joel 2:23 KJV: Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first [month]. (24) And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. (25) And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
This scripture speaks of the outpouring of the former and latter rain together. People will come to church, not just for miracles; miracles will be as common as tongues is now. Healing of cancers will be as common as tongues! The fire, the glory on the outside will heal the sick. Because of the fire, when you just touch someone, the fire will enter the body to heal a person of cancer! With one touch only, people with withered hands, people born lame from their mother’s womb, will have their limbs will straighten out immediately in the presence of everybody! This is the glory of God that is to be made manifest.
The healings of the sick, the cleansing of the lepers will be common among little children; spiritual little ones and children! Men will not be able to make money from healings and deliverances anymore, because the supply of the healing power of the glory will have exceeded the demand, so the price will fall! No longer will the sick have to attend your camp-meeting and give you money and buy anointing oil because the anointed little boy down the road will lay hands on them and they will get healed! This is what is coming; and the more spiritual the more mature saints will raise the dead! Raising the dead too will be common but not with everybody.
To explain this, remember that even though speaking in tongues is common now, it is not everybody that speaks in tongues. Many Christians in the Church today still don’t speak in tongues! It is going to be the same with the miracles of the feast of Tabernacles; it will be common, but not with everybody; only those who are disciples will manifest the glory!
God is going to remove our shame. And from now till the end of the age we His people will never again be ashamed. The manifest glory will remove all the shame!
