I wrote this message on Friday and hesitated to share it but it is connected to the Four Blood Moons message on Saturday. There’s less risk when I write about sales, marketing and business topics, but as I pursue God with all my heart, He often has other things to talk about.
As I prayed about this whole Four Blood Moon thing, I got an unexpected snapshot, a flash, a picture if you will of planet Earth as if I was looking at it from space. I saw off the Atlantic coast, a rip in the underwater land mass and it was almost as if it burped. Whether that image is literal or figurative I do not know. The fear I saw however, was real.
At best, I am a hose and God is the Spirit or water that moves through me. On my best days, the water still has the taste of the hose. I wish I could do better. Here is what I am willing to share with you that I felt the Lord impress upon me…
Have you not noticed how God’s people are largely caught up in the movement and the sway of the god of this age? How they run after the same idols, chase the same riches, fall into the same traps, experience the same heartbreaks the world does?
Do you remember how the world gave ominous warnings concerning Y2K and much of the church prepared? But it was nothing. Something similar happened regarding 2012. Who was that devil that we the church would listen to him?
And now God’s people are being caught up with the 4 blood moons. Did God not set the sun, the moon and the stars in the skies to be HIS witness, to proclaim HIS truth and herald HIS coming? Why is it then, that God’s people cannot rightly discern these things? Is it because they would rather listen to the voice of a man than to seek His face, hear His voice and walk in the Way, the Truth and the Life that He offers?
Signs are for signals of future events and not for what has already happened. We should know that. Here is what I believe is coming… There will be great upheaval, a great turning up of the earth. It will heave and it will reel like a drunken man and there will be great fear upon the earth. Isn’t that what Isaiah said?
You may take precaution and avoid him, but you do not live in fear of that man. UNLESS, you are married to that man, or are his child. Then you are very afraid of what he will do when he gets home.
Do you understand this? When the upheaval comes, great fear will come upon all those who are married to this man, (the world).
It will come upon all who call this man, (the world), their father. Too many of God’s children have taken up residence in this man’s house. They have learned this man’s ways.
They have married this man (the world), while being betrothed to the Lord. They say they are married or promised to Christ, but they are living with this man. When this man begins reeling in his drunkenness, they will feel his fury, not God’s wrath on them. It will happen this way because they have chosen to take shelter under his roof.
Many are living in that man’s house and visit the Lord on Sunday with a casserole and a song and then return to his house. This man is their lover, but God is the One who loves them. God loves them but they are unfaithful and they will eat the fruit they have plucked from his field.
Give heed to God’s word. Leave this man’s house. Separate from the unclean man. Be no more married to him or his ways. Come back to the Lord and He will wash you again, care for your wounds and teach you His ways.
When the time of the shaking comes, you will be circumspect, but not afraid. If it’s merely an economic shaking you will be positioned to increase during massive decrease. But be not carnal in your thinking. God’s kingdom is set to increase and of the increase of His government there shall be no end.
