PROPHETIC WORD: THE LORD’S END TIME ARMY

My Hiding Place
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be WITNESSES unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Matt.24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Dear brothers and sisters,
I’m here to tell you that when the latter rain of God’s Spirit comes upon us, it will be such an unprecedented display of God’s power upon the earth. There are no words in our dictionary that can truly express what it’s going to be like. The Lord will open up the floodgates of heaven and dump such an incredible surge of His power, glory, presence, radiance, boldness and authority over His people, His End Time Army Bride –those who have been living in holiness and intimacy with Him. When this happens, we will be launched into our End Time Assignments with the aim of bringing in Father’s End Time Harvest from the ends of the earth. The fire of His Spirit will flow in us to completely saturate every part of our beings to become a spring of living water gushing out of us. What an exciting time to be alive!!
The Pentecost that occurred in the book of Acts was part 1 of the outpouring of His Spirit. During End Times (the times we live in), we’re going to experience this marvellous event again. Except that this time, it will be in much greater magnitude. Understand that as the great tribulation unfolds, time of great distress will come upon the earth -much harder times than what we’re currently facing. In fact, we haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg yet! For this reason the Bible tells us in Luke 21:36, ‘Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man’. This doesn’t mean that the Lord will remove His people from the earth, but rather that He will equip us with spiritual means to carry out His mission. Without this supernatural pouring of the Holy Spirit it would be extremely difficult to navigate these end times. But just like the disciples received great power and boldness to stand in the face of many trials and tribulations, so will we live to do the same. When we come to the Lord and ask Him in our hearts, He doesn’t promise us a flowery life. One must consider the cost of being a true follower of Christ because being a Christian really means being ready to lay our lives down for our friends.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Jesus did not look for an alternative way to rescue us from the curse of sin and death, but He willingly laid his life down to set an example for us. Those who have grasped this understanding and are living accordingly, who have counted the cost of building this house with the Lord so they can bring it to completion, who have matured early in their walk with the Lord will be part of this End Time Army.
The Lord Jesus Himself will ensure that they will be equipped to act as His governing body, to walk the earth in His anointing and to perform many miracles, even more than those performed by Jesus when He walked the earth. Just like the body has many members, each with a different function, but all working together in unity for its well-being, so will this body of individuals work in unity of Spirit with the same goal in mind: winning more souls for the Lord.
The Lord has prepared for them a full arsenal of weapons. One of these weapons will be a sickle as they’ll harvest thousands of souls into the Father’s kingdom. Their lips have been touched with live coals from the altar that is before the Lord, just like Isaiah’s. Their guilt has been removed and their sins atoned for and they will stand blameless to speak the undefiled Word of the Lord. Their feet equipped with the Gospel of peace will go forth to proclaim salvation to all mankind.
Isa.52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Their hands have been strengthened for battle; their arms can bend bows of bronze. Psa.18:34
They will carry the anointing of Philip and be able to appear in various places as the Spirit will enable them.
John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
They will carry the mantles of Elijah and Moses and will perform many miraculous signs and wonders in the biggest SHOWDOWN that’s ever manifested upon the earth. They will face the antichrist, false prophet and many demonic entities that will pretend to do the same by their wicked magic arts as in the times of the Israelites in Egypt.
They will carry with them the balm from the throne room of God to heal multitudes. They will not be hindered by any evil force. They will set prisoners free, not only from their physical but also spiritual bondages. They will speak boldly and with much authority, grace and anointing about the things of God and will share many secrets and revelations as the Holy Spirit will enable them.
Isa.61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
These are the wise virgins who have prepared their lamps with much oil to last until the coming of the Bridegroom. Those who have left father, mother, son and daughter to follow the calling of the Master.
Matt. 10:37-38 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
These are those who have died to themselves and to their carnal desires daily and have allowed the Spirit of the Lord to transform their minds so they no longer adhere to the patterns of this world but have been transformed by the renewing of their minds to possess the mind of Christ.
Rom.12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
These are those who have understood that without faith it’s impossible to please God and that without holiness we cannot see the Lord.
Heb.11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Heb. 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
They have left behind the ways of the world and embraced their crosses and will ‘resurrect’ for all to see. This will be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 37 prophecy regarding the valley of the dead dry bones. For they have been hidden and trained for ‘such a time as this’, so they can be released in their God-given purpose as God’s Army at His appointed time.
These are the flaming arrows in the Lord’s quiver; those the Father will use to execute His wrath.
Psa.7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
Isa.49:2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me.
Isa.13:3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
And just like Jesus had no beauty or majesty to attract us to Him, many of these humble servants may not have any special ability or beauty to attract others to them. In fact, they’ve often been rejected by society for being awkward, peculiar or different. Somehow they never seemed to fit in. That’s because they were never meant to fit into this world as they’re not of this world any more than Christ was of this world.
Isa.53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
When their ‘resurrection’ occurs, as it was prophesied in Ezekiel 37, they will be revealed for all to see. WOW, what a display of God’s greatness it will be!
Rom.8:33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Remember Matt.22:14, ‘For many are called, but few are chosen.’
When this great event will take place, those who did not heed to the Holy Spirit’s voice to renew their vows to the Lord and return to their first love; those who were too caught up into the ways of the world and the busyness of life; those who were deceived by the enemy into chasing false doctrines, paganism and idols; all lukewarm Christians and those who did not take time to fill their lamps with the oil of the Holy Spirit will receive a sudden and rude awakening.
Rev.2:4-5 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Rev.3:14-22 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Further study Scriptures:
Matt.25:1-13, 1Cor.10, Isa.44, Exodus 32
Gal 1:6-10 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel. Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
For then they will see, with their own eyes, that which the Lord will bring to pass and in one moment there will be a bitter cry. They will realize that although they strongly believed they were on the narrow path, they will awaken to the reality that they had wandered off. These will be the “Peters’ who said to themselves they’ll never deny Christ and before the crow crowed twice they will have denied him three times.
1 Cor.15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be CHANGED.
Mark 14:27-30 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
Matt. 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
1 Thess. 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
If you reflect on your walk with the Lord, and in all honesty find yourself lacking, this is the time to repent: meaning to come clean about your sins and to stop doing them. This is not a time to play games or to procrastinate. This is the time to live out our salvation with much fear and trembling of the Lord.
Prov. 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Please take this message to the Lord in prayer for confirmation as always.
My prayer is that we may all seek to live a life worthy of the calling which we have received and that none of us should perish but all would receive eternal life. I’m looking forward to meeting you all someday in the courts of heaven and in the presence of our Holy God.
God bless you all!!
