In the 90’s I prophesied that “America’s light will dim as Israel’s light rises.”
I think it is very important that we hear that word of the Lord today. So many are so concerned about our nation and understandably so. But God is not surprised nor upset and He has not forgotten His chosen ones.
We are in a state of transition and God knows how to get the job done.
Society is changing, no question. It is plainer than we want to believe. But even though it looks like the Christian has lost control, nothing could be further than the truth. God is positioning His righteous ones. He is opening their eyes to see with His Vision.
God is not worried and He is preparing. These times have been prophesied in the Word of God. It’s not good to rush ahead or lag behind. Things are right on time.
Mark the date you read this. July 17, 2009. (At least that is today for me as I write this.) It’s okay. There will be tribulation but God has overcome the world. Yes, the world!!!
Those who are in Him will be safe as they obey. Many will see opportunities to witness and will be willing to suffer for His Name’s sake, and their loving hearts and actions will not go unrewarded.
Put God first in all you do. As you do, you will hear what to do for your life. There will be many with all kinds of plans that may be right for them, but tune in to what is right for you. Where do you hear His Voice the best? And what is He telling you to do?
He has a Plan! And it’s a good one, to win the world to Him. And when the world sees Him, they will be changed, and that change will be remarkable. It will be so good! And some, maybe many, will suffer for Him, but it will be worth it. It will not be forgotten!
God is looking for a people, for a society that is willing to live for Him. It’s not about being religious, but it’s about being honestly righteous. The appearance of righteous that is not genuine will be exposed. It’s happening. Like the days of Ananais and Sapphira, the unclean heart will be exposed. But for the clean, it is a joyous time.
Don’t feel bad if you suffer now for what you know is true. Truth can be kind and truth can take abuse. It can even appear to fall dead in the streets, but your God is the Resurrection! Don’t forget that! He is the Resurrection and the Life!
If you believe that He is the Life, then you will live. You will be connected to that Life-giving Vine and you will KNOW that you are connected to Him.
This is NOT just a time of suffering and testing coming up. Yes, there will be some, but for the mature believer, it will be a willing component of their life, because they want Him most of all. He will never leave you or forsake you. The mature will be willing to receive the discipline of the Father’s great Love. They will see Love and hold on to it! And great will be their reward.
God will be moving many of His people. It’s already apparent that we are in a time of transition, but many will move to other countries, including Israel! But don’t go if He is not telling you to. But many will go when they did not plan to go because they will realize that His Hand is behind this. And they will willingly give up what they have now for the reward to come.
You hear many say, “Travel light!” Now some may feel they are supposed to stay but each person must hear for themselves. But I prophesy to you, as I have before, that there will be an exodus coming. It’s okay! And if you stay in the Spirit, you will know what you are supposed to do.
I am prophesying this to you today because when the time comes, you will know that you have been warned and told and prepared. We will not leave in haste, running for our lives, we will not leave in fear. We will leave with purpose and destiny and calling on our lives. God has need of you! The way will be prepared.
Life is life and we live it and adjust. But Christians are also Spirit led. For some, things will just seem real logical. For others it will be a surprise. The prophetic ones will hear and equip those they are around, because they are supposed to, because the gift equips! You equip them to HEAR what the Father is saying.
Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; my ears You have opened; burnt offering and sin offering You did not require. Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me. I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.” Psalm 40:6-8 (NKJ)
America’s light will dim as Israel’s light rises. What a beautiful thought! God still loves America and certainly all the believers who are here. And He certainly cares about the lost. But He has a Plan and it will be fulfilled gloriously and all the promises and prophecies will be manifested.
Don’t look at it like it is just war or evil end times. It is so much more!!! It is the time of opportunity. And friends, there is no turning back. The world is not the same as it once was. Transition has taken place. It’s a new day.
Today is the day to see what your hand can find to do in the Lord. Some will realize they need to seek Him as never before. Others will start feeling more and more fulfilled. All believers will help others, especially those who are struggling in fear.
God has oiled His channels of activity and He will continue to oil the obedient. Not everything will be loud but it will be significant. Don’t let the devil take you into territories of fear. The Promised Land is ahead!!!
