-R. Loren Sandford: “The Cloud of Glory Has Moved”

image Here’s a good Bible study but also a right on prophetic message from  R. Loren Sandford:

The Cloud of Glory Has Moved

Here’s how it ends up:

We have entered into a strategic time when we must move beyond the focus on personal healing and restoration—which has been the emphasis for most of my life—to a focus on the kingdom of God. The cloud of glory has moved into the age of the kingdom of God, an age in which we must cross boundaries and minister the power of the kingdom of God to a world that doesn’t know Him. If you don’t pack up everything and move with it, you will stink up your house and die.

Destiny is at our doorstep.

Response: Amen. This is exactly what the Lord has been talking to me about lately-Thy Kingdom come on Earth and Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom. There is a major shift going on and we better not miss it!            *Top

-A Word for 2010 From ACPE: ‘Third Great Awakening’

Word for the Church Here’s a link to a prophetic Word for 2010 from the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders (ACPE) distributed by Cindy Jacobs. It a compilation of the prophetic releases from that group.

The preamble makes some good points in regard to present era prophecy:

There are differing variables that can affect the timing and/or coming to pass of these words:

  1. All prophecy not contained in scripture is conditional.
  2. The timing of when the prophecy comes to pass may occur over a longer period of time than one calendar year.  Some take many years to fulfill.
  3. It is possible that prophetic warnings will cause either the person or nation to repent and so turn away the judgment prophesied.  Biblically, this happened when Jonah prophesied to Nineveh and the city repented, causing God to relent.

There are a number of points in the document that hit home and confirm some of the stuff that I believe that the Lord has been saying to me. Particularly poignant is word that a new wind of the Holy Spirit is coming that touches a number of different nations in a special way.

The sections-  ‘Third Great Awakening’ and ‘Evangelism’ leaped out at me in particular:

Third Great Awakening

We believe that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that came on November 11, 2009, in Kansas City signaled the beginning of a Third Great Awakening that we prophesied would come to America and the world. November 11th was the day the Pilgrims made covenant with God in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Many intercessors across the nation are crying out to God for the nation to once again become "a city set on a hill." If we continue to pray and call out to God, the nation will shift.

Evangelism

Many churches will wake up and evangelize the lost in their cities and nations. Thousands will be swept into the kingdom of God through new "power evangelism" movements in which people [will be] shown by supernatural means that God is real.

Churches who haven’t baptized in years will begin to see many people come to Christ. Dead churches will become resurrected under the fire and power of the Holy Spirit’s working, and many [who are] lost will be swept into the kingdom of God.

I really do believe that there is another ‘Great Awakening’ coming to North America that will touch hundreds of churches and cities in a special way across all of North America.

One of the keys to the new awakening will revolve around the Kingdom of God (that is the rule of God) invading into the marketplace where we all spend a majority of our lives. An expansion the Kingdom into the workplace and businesses where we spent our daylight hours.

It is in that process that God the Father will help his children to overcome their debts and become economically secure even in the midst of major recession. Not only that, but find spiritual blessing, purpose, and fulfillment at work and in businesses.

We’ll look at more of this message in later posts.            *Top

A ‘Good’ Shaking this Summer?

image

Here’s the latest from Charisma Mag’s Prophetic Insight: by Kim Clement: ”The Manifestation of the Sons of God”

Here’s the conclusion:

And God said, "There is going to be a shaking during the summer, but the shaking shall be a sign that the earth is awaiting the manifestation of God’s sons and daughters. For there shall be a glory that shall come forth with unusual signs, unusual miracles, unusual manifestations—that shall come as a result of this shout that is coming from the earth," says the Spirit of the living God.

"Even though the earth shall shake, and even though the heavens may rumble, and even though the winds may blow and hurricanes may come," God said, "It shall be a sign that I am coming to this country like a mighty, rushing wind, about to raise you up and give you one sound, with one voice," says the Lord.

[America] is going to shake with the power of the living God.

<<Read the whole thing>>

Response: I post prophetic messages that speak to me in some way. In this one I see hope for the beginning of revival in America. We will not touch the controversial “manifestation of the Sons of God” reference which conjures up a variety of responses. Well maybe we will if some of you readers would like to comment.

I will say this about the message, I get somewhat uncomfortable when prophetic folk declare “and God said” or “says the Lord” or the traditional “Thus saith the Lord”—not knowing the mode in which the message came.

However, I have personally had at least a couple of occasions when I literally heard the voice of God and a number of open visions where that terminology might be totally justified. This might be one of those appropriate occasions.            *Top

Judgment Begins with the Church

 image Here’s another prophetic word by R. Loren Sandford:  “Recovering Our Lost Influence

Loren has some right-on counsel for the church here and points out that Christians lost their political and cultural influence in America because of hypocrisy in high places(failing Christian leaders) and because of a ‘religious’ pharisaic attitude towards unbelievers:

I don’t see judgment falling on the nation yet but rather on the church—God’s people—and it has only just begun. 1 Peter 4:17 clearly indicates that judgment begins with the house of God.

The first stage of judgment—already in motion—is that we have lost both our power as a voting block and our cultural influence. We have lost these things (1) because we have presented ourselves to the nation in the religious spirit rather than the Spirit of Christ and (2) because our integrity in high places has been badly compromised.

The second stage of judgment on the church in days to come is that the culture of this nation will continue in the direction it has been choosing to take for the last 40 years. The judgment is that we can do nothing to stop this slide into lawlessness and immorality because we’ve sacrificed our moral authority.

Sandford ends with good counsel for the American church—well worth reading.            *Top

“God is Shaking Things Up”

Worship BG - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

(Image by bemky via Flickr)

Here’s an article/message from David Ravenhill:

God is Shaking Things Up”. His thoughts and counsel really do reflect a lot of the ideas and responses that we have been posting recently about the economy and particularly the church. He identifies that the very chaotic times that we are experiencing is actually the results of God shaking everything that can be shaken. I would add—even the church.

He begins with this:

“God promised to shake everything that can be shaken, and He is not slack about keeping His promises. I don’t ever recall a time such as today, when almost everything is being shaken.”

David also is expecting like I am that Christians in America will increasingly begin to experience persecution from the dominate American culture and even the government itself:

“Another concern I have is the blatant anti-Christian attitude emerging in our country. … It wasn’t so long ago that newscasters and politicians were comparing some Christians to Islamic terrorists.

American Christians have never experienced real persecution before, but Jesus made it very clear that this would be pervasive in the Last Days. Let’s face it, in the current environment, about all it would take would be for some weird “Christian” group to attack the government to bring about a public outcry against everything Christian. I believe during our lifetime we could very well see a president, in the interest of national security, closing churches and establishing a Guantanamo Bay for “religious insurgents.” Have you forgotten what it was like right after 9/11?”

Ravenhill Concludes with this counsel:

“Perhaps the best way to prepare for what is headed our way is to begin to live as though it were already here. What I mean by that is to start focusing on the eternal, rather than the temporal; start forming quality relationships with other like-minded saints. Then when life as we have known it begins to unravel, we will be ready to meet the future as a friend rather than as an enemy to be feared.”

Some of his observations are somewhat scary and some may think rather paranoid—either that or prophetic. I believe that they are right on and the American Church must now get use to the fact that if we are going to continue to be a Biblical Christian Church, we may from now on be at odds with the dominant American culture and I fear ultimately even with a government that is suppose to provide for our ‘freedom of religion’.

I have already seen this current administration do some things which are blatantly against the constitution yet few have registered any complaints. The government has engaged in what is tantamount to ‘nationalizing’ the banks, financial institutes, and the auto industry to name a few. Legislation is before the congress to bring the energy businesses and the medical industry under government control also. This doesn’t seem to bother anyone because of the extreme economic emergency situation we are in—not only that—many are encouraging it.

It really isn’t hard for me to see the possibility of this government stretching its authority into the religious realm if future emergencies would dictate. Actually this is not all that far fetched, recently the Dept. of Homeland Security sent out a bulletin telling police and FBI to be on the lookout for right-wing groups like those who are ‘pro-life’ and supporters of Israel among other ‘hate groups’. Call me paranoid if you like.             *Top
