Journey to enter into the promised land -
The rise of the army of the last days
We hope today’s message can help us to have a better understanding of God’s heart and His will for the last days. So that we may know the plans that He has for us is to prosper us, not to harm us, so that we may have hope at the end. The Lord will guide our path and lead us into our complete destiny so that we may have new revelations in the new seasons. Amen!
Everyone who is sitting here, do you know why you exist in this world? Living on this earth? If you don’t know yet why does God have you settled in Toronto, in China, in Australia, or in Europe, you will not fulfill your goal accurately. To you, everyone on earth is just to live to get by and die at the end. Why on earth are we here? What I am talking about is not that I become a lawyer, a missionary, an evangelist, or become a priest, a disciple and etc. What I am sharing today is about the fundamental reasons of our existence.
The fundamental reasons of our living here on the earth
If we don’t know the purpose of our being in this world, we will start our Christian life on the wrong foundation. How old is the planet earth? Anyone knows? Fossil records show that the Earth has a history of 3.5 billion years.The history of the Milky Way has been 15 billion years. What about the galaxies outside the Milky Way? All these long, long years. And human history is only about 6,000 years old. However, the kingdom of God already exists long before the planet earth and the creation of the entire universe. There is a huge civilization of heaven, which is far ancient than any civilization we have known. It exists in the kingdom of God. It will not perish. And it will last forever. Amen!
So what is the foundational reasons of our living on this earth?
1) It is for a specific purpose.
We know our existence was designed for a specific purpose. There are at least 200 billions of stars in the Milky Way. The earth is only one planet of the 200 billion stars in the vast universe. And God created this universe for His children. And this planet must meet all the conditions and become a place that is suitable to live for God's children. So do you think that God's purpose in creating all things in the universe is just to let you spend the best time in the world or in the church? Or is it just for you to get to heaven? Today my sharing will once again challenge you through these ideas. It is not just for us to get to heaven, the promised land.
2) It is for a higher calling and reward.
The Apostle Paul talked about this that we have a higher calling and reward. So what is the reward?
2Timothy 4：7-8, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”
Here Paul says that there is a good fight to fight. And there is a race to finish.
And the same thing is mentioned in Hebrews 12.
Hebrews 12: 1, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,”
“run the race that is set before us.” What kind of race is this now?
This race is not just about getting to heaven.
What it means is that on the earth we need to complete a lot of tests, learn a lot of lessons, and then we can finish our planned race.
Some people have finished the course earlier and sometimes God brings them back to heavenly home because they have completed their courses. Of course not all of the Christians have completed their learnings and then went to heaven. Many people actually did not finish.
Would you acknowledge it? Like the Israelites who fell dead in the wilderness.Except Caleb and Joshua, they were an entire generation who did not enter the Promised Land. They used to be led by the columns of cloud and fire. All kinds of miraculous signs and wonders were with them.
The shoes were not worn out, quails and Mana fell from the sky, the Red Sea was separated, water came out of the rock, and they met with God at the Mount Moriah, and were with God. They were a generation that was led by God. From our modern day’s view, they were definitely the Christians in Pentecostal denomination.
However, though they saw the promised land, they didn’t enter it. God’s heart was to give them the land belonged to the seven people groups living in Canaan. That was the land of the Canaanite. Just as what God told Moses when calling out from the burning bush, Exodus 3: 8,
“So I have come down to save them from the power of the Egyptians. I will bring them out of that land to a good big land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite and the Jebusite.”
God wanted them to enter into the promised land. But that generation fell to die at the entrance to the promised land. This story was recorded not only for the generations of Moses, Joshua, David and Paul. It is also for our generation, who are the generation at the end of times. The people for the last days. When the end of times comes, we will learn lessons from this story.
3) Get to the terminal, the destined end.
Where is the finishing line of the race? Where is our destined end?
Hebrews12:22-23, “But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,”
When Moses saw what was happening on Mount Sinai, he was trembling with fear. Because when God came down, the volcanoes erupted ; the storms raged and there were lightnings in the clouds.
Angels appeared in the clouds and God spoke from the top of the mountains. But the purpose of God to show up to his people was not to make them stop there, nor was it to stop people from going forward.
That is the open heaven. What we are talking about is where this generation have to go. That is the Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. God says, do not stop at Mount Sinai. That is not your destined end. You have to continue to go to the place called Mount Zion where there is the open heaven.That is to say, if we just walk out of the wilderness and enter the Mount Sinai of salvation, it is absolutely wrong to stop there. As long as we cannot finish the race and enter into the destined end , which is Mount Zion, the city of the living God, we are a failure. We fail to get to the end of this life and fall short to the living God. And once this loss is caused, it will never be recovered. Sounds scary, doesn’t it?
So first, we must understand what is the final destiny of Christians?
I. What is the greatest calling in Christian life?
What is our first and foremost calling on this planet earth? This universe was created for you and who you must become?
— You will rule over the universe and enthroned with God.
The whole planet is like a university. You are arranged to be in the school and you have to accomplish all your courses with excellent results. The requirement of graduation is that you must be conformed to the image of Jesus and become like the Son of God, imitating Christ.
Romans 8: 29, “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”
This is your first and main calling. Others are next to it. This is what Paul talked about, the higher calling.
Your identity from the heavenly perspective is the son/daughter of God. And that is the greatest calling in a Christian’s life.
Some people may say, “I have other callings. I was given the prophecy that I am an apostle. I am a prophet. I am…..and so on.
Yes it is true. But these are not the first calling that God puts inside of us. These are the functions, not identity. These functions are valuable. But I want to encourage you that in your Christian life, when you are looking at the core of your life, when you are operating these functions, don’t let these functions to be your true identity. If you insist to call these functions as your calling, that is all right. But they cannot become your foremost calling.
Most of us pay too much attention to abilities, gifts, functions, and ignore our first identity as the children of God. I believe in the five positions in the church, which are apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists. But I want to ask you one question. If you define your identity as an evangelist and you say you are a person who shares the gospel, then when you get to the heaven in the future, do you think in heaven, they still need to share the gospel?
I don’t think so. I don’t think heaven needs it. You don’t need to share gospel to the saints. There is no need for pastors as well because we already have our great shepherd Christ in heaven. At that time, we can go to the One who is the source of all.
All our functions, positions, and gifts on the earth are defined to serve the church. God does not define these as your identity. Your identity will last forever as the children of God, the sons of the living God. Your identity will be same as today even I will meet you after 100,000 years. The more you walk in this identity as the child of God, the more you will understand that God leads you out of love.
Romans 8: 19-21, "For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.”22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.”
Before the creation of this world, you were chosen by God. There must be a purpose of the identity of God’s children to be revealed. What is that purpose?
Ephesians 1: 5, “he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will- “
In the royal family of the monarchy on the earth, the princes and princesses grew up for one purpose only, that is to rule the entire kingdom in the future. God gave the vast universe to his sons because his children will rule over all things in the future and govern the kingdom of God. The Millennium is a preview. And that is something very exciting. The sons of God will reign with God in the millennium. You will rule the universe.
The beginning of the 7-year journey, the last journey.
We have already come to the border of the promised land. The journey has started. The final race has come. But in this last journey, how are the remnants going to prepare themselves? How are they getting ready at the end times? The journey has started. This will be the last round in the race. God has prepared you. And purpose of your growing to maturity is to rule all things and govern the kingdom of God. Don’t miss this last round of race. This is the moment worthy of offering up your life.
Get ready, everybody. The last days are coming.
II. The children of God will face three great challenges
1. The journey of the remnants starts from the wilderness till the second coming of Christ. But it will not end up there, the journey will continue, it has not finished yet. After the millennium, it will not be finished. There will be another new journey. The new heaven and the new earth will come. After that, there will be the judgment before the white throne. And then it will be eternity.
2. The saints will face great persecution.
Revelation 12: 4, “Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.”
This refers to the persecution of Anti-Christ toward the overcomes, the male child and the new tribal group.
Revelation12: 13, “When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.”
This refers to the persecution of Anti-Christ toward the church.
Rev. 11:5, “ If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.”
Rev.11:7, "Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.”
Rev.11: 10, “The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.”
When I read these verses, I saw these refer to the persecution of Anti-Christ toward the two witnesses. They come not only to preach the gospel, but also to judge the world as well as the church. So the world will kill them.
Rev.11: 6, “They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.”
“Fire comes from their mouths”. What does that mean? That is the power of words and the Holy Spirit to confront those who want to take their lives and vilify them. When they enter the church, apparently they are not welcomed. Because they come to shake the church.
The second time God will come is to marry His bride. Once shaken, goats and sheep are distinguished. The injustice in the church is revealed. Who would like this kind of shaking? Is there any church that is willing to be shaken and have the overcomers and bride warriors to be left? I don’t think they would. Instead, it will be the overcomers and the sheep who are separated out, will be persecuted. It is sad, isn’t! Such kind of people only live to please God and obey His will. They must go the way Christ traveled. They can not be accepted by the world and the religions. Even to the point to be killed. Will there be any Christians who compromise to the world take part in the persecution? I believe there must be. Otherwise in Revelation 11:10, it would not say something like that the inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them. People from every people, every tribe, every language, every nation will come to look at their corpses. They will hate them to a point that they will not the bodies to be buried in the grave.
Rev.11: 10, “The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.”
In the end times, the big deception, that is, the things that deceive the selects and the deceptions are happening all over the world. Therefore, our family here, be careful not to say whatever you hear of other people’s saying.You should not talk about things you have personally not experienced and witnessed. Otherwise, you will share the portion of those who killed the prophets. And in the future God will revenge for the bloodshed, and no one will be spared.
3. In this journey, at the beginning of the last three and half years, we will have a great war that will happen simultaneously in the spiritual realm and on the earth.
That is the war between the angels and the devil in the second heaven. It is also the war between the saints and the evil kingship of the Anti-Christ on the earth. The prayers of the saints will drive this war. It will be the battle for the land. And it will be the battle for the rule of the planet earth.
After the new generation entered the promised land, do we think it is finished? No. They still have to get over all kinds of wars and battles. In the journey to enter into the land, the Israelites met their enemies. The old enemies left and the new ones came. In Exodus 14: 12-40, God told Moses, “I will fight for you.” Now, it becomes, “Moses, you go and fight.” Exodus 14-17 recorded the process of growing and maturing of Israelites. Before, God fought for them. And then, God asked them to go out and fight. At the end of times, there will be a great war that is prepared for the saints.
Rev. 12: 7-12, “7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.
They triumphed over him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”
Here there are two military groups participating the war: the beast and the saints; Archangel Michale and his messengers; The dragon and his messengers. Satan and his messengers were hurled down to the earth from the second heaven. They lost their place in heaven.
Who will have the final victory? The messengers of God. Please remember the answer in your heart.
Here, “brothers” does not refer to the angels. If it does, why did the angels need the blood of the Lamb and the testimonies of the saints. Also they did not love their lives at the end? Therefore, “they” and “brothers” refer to us, the saints. It says here that there will be a war happening in heaven. And it is the saints who drive this war. So it will be the same, a war will happen on the earth.
In the Old Testament, the war to take possession of the land was led by Moses and Joshua. However at the end times, the group who enter the war will be led by the male child. They will fight along side with the angels. This is the great war at the end of the times.
What is what the Bible mentions in Joel 3,
Joel 3: 9-10,
“Proclaim this among the nations:
Prepare for war!
Rouse the warriors!
Let all the fighting men draw near and attack.
Beat your plowshares into swords
and your pruning hooks into spears.
Let the weakling say,
“I am strong!”
Get ready! Get ready for the coming war!
Who are our enemies? They are those who hinder you from getting intimate with God. They are the enemies who prevent you from entering into your destiny and the promised land. You need to grow up. You need to grow mature. So that the sons of God can be revealed.
III. How to prepare yourself at the end of times
In the Millennium, the earth will be ruled and managed by the pioneers, overcomers, and the bride. And they will bring heaven to the earth. Not every born-again Christian is the bride of Christ. The bride of Christ will need to be prepared. Among the 10 virgins, 5 are clever and 5 are foolish.They are all Christians. And they are all waiting for the arrival of the bridegroom. They all have oil. However, if we don’t get ourselves ready like Esther did, we can't enter the holy city of New Jerusalem. We need to be prepared. We need to cleanse, wash, put on perfumed cream and have all kinds of preparation. What do these symbolize?
The preparation of the bride:
1. To build up intimate relationship with God which is a covenantal relationship.
Though we may attend all the meetings and listen to all the sermons, if we do not have a close relationship with God, our life has not changed. What benefits can we get? The journey is about to begin. We are not just a learner, but we need to be grown-ups, to be practitioners.
Besides, you will need to have a covenantal relationship with God. At the end of times, everyone could make you disappointed or abandon you. Everyone could be fallen. Only God will be with you. The Old Testament tells us that the people of Israel was about to set their feet on the land of Canaan and began the 7-year war in all directions. Now they were camped at Gilgal to prepare to fight the first battle - The battle of Jericho. What was the first thing God asked them to do? Not to sharpen the knives for battle, but sharpen the knives for circumcision. Facing the enemies, God asked the people of Israel to circumcise, to injure their bodies. And this could be an opportunity for the enemy to get a sneak attack? However rather take the risk, God still asked this generation of Israelites to have the circumcision first. Does circumcision have any special meaning? Genesis 17: 9-11 says, “Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.” Circumcision is the sign of the covenant. It shows that they are God’s people. They had to establish the covenant with God first. Only after they dealt with their relationship with God properly, they could start their 7-year wars.The circumcision also represented to remove the humiliation of being slaves in Egypt for 400 years. Now the Israelites were the royal priesthood of God.
There will be a great war in the last seven years, and the saints must have a covenantal relationship with God.
In Revelation 12:11," They triumphed over him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.”
It is based on the covenantal relationship with God. This is the key to their survival.
2. The bride has to prepare herself in the wilderness to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit and sanctify herself.
Song of Songs also mentions about how to prepare
Songs 3: 6, “Who is this coming up from the wilderness like a column of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and incense made from all the spices of the merchant?”
This is talking about preparing to be a bride like Esther did.
Esther 2: 12, “Before a young woman’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics.”
Here it says that before she was elected to be the queen, she need to have fragrance and get ride of all the smells. Fragrance, incense, oil all refer to the characters or virtues of Christ. Because virtues have colour, fragrance, sound, taste and smell. In the spiritual realm, that is the smell of love. In the spiritual realm, when your virtues come out, the evil spirits see it, God sees it, and the angels see it. Everyone of us constantly releases all kind of smells in spirit, including virtues of Christ (example: smells in gatherings). When we walk in love, in peace, in the spiritual realm, we will see that the colour will change. (The joy of the spirit is pink, the long-suffering is purple, the gentleness and holiness are white...).
We do not have too much time to get ready.
Song of Songs 4:12-14, ”You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain. Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates with choice fruits, with henna and nard, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of incense tree, with myrrh and aloes and all the finest spices.” It talks about to become a bride, your garden must bear fruits, which is the fruit of the Spirit. How to bear the fruit of the Spirit? It is not Christ who pours perfume on you, but you need to prepare in advance. And you have to be prepared in the wilderness.
You also have to consecrate yourself. Sanctify yourself. Let God walk ahead of you. Joshua 3: 5-6, “Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you. Joshua said to the priests, “Take up the ark of the covenant and pass on ahead of the people.” So they took it up and went ahead of them.” “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” The Bible does not give details of how to consecrate oneself. It could be very similar to what Moses instructed people of Israel in Exodus 19:10 of how to consecrate themselves at the Mount Moriah. Exodus 19: 10, “And the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes 11 and be ready by the third day, because on that day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.”
Separate the things in your hands for God, and these become holy. The things to be holy can not be mixed with the world, even your own self. You are no longer your own, you belong to Christ, and God wants you to offer 100% (example: Exodus: the transfer of wealth). You begin your journey and on your way to the promised land of Canaan. At the end of times, there is a goal here, which is your top priority to choose, to find life. Everything in God's kingdom will be added to you, food, clothes, these will follow you.
3. You must enter into the wilderness. Only through hardships, your fragrance can be released.
We talked about bearing the fruit of the Spirit before. Then God will raised the North wind so that the fragrance in the garden can be released. North wind refers to the environment, also refers to the wilderness, the hardship. It is in the Great Tribulation. It is the temptation. So the fruit of the Holy Spirit can be ready. The saints will get ready there. Songs 4: 16, “Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow on my garden, that its fragrance may spread everywhere. Let my beloved come into his garden and taste its choice fruits.”
Isaiah 26: 3, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”
Exodus 13: 21-22, “By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.”
He will lead you, guide you, and shine upon you. So no evil can stand before you.
Isaiah 26:20, “Go, my people, enter your rooms
and shut the doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until his wrath has passed by.”
Do you see? This is talking about the hardship to come. Everywhere will be the massive blackouts, riots, bankruptcy of the nations. The famine is coming, the supermarkets are closed, and energy cannot be transported in. The war starts and all kinds of riots occur frequently. When all these disasters suddenly come, your past hurts, insecurity, and weakness will be provoked again. You will face temptation and your faith will be challenged. God allows these to happen in order to finally test you and completely release you into freedom. The final bondage will fall off. The fragrance of your Christ-like life will be released.
4. Walk with God. Supernatural provision will come.
Micah 6: 8, "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.”
How to walk with God? First you must listen to His voice, understand His heart and thoughts, and obey His leading, then you can walk with Him.
Joshua 1: 1-2, “After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide: “Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites.” Started from Chapter 1, the LORD instructed Joshua to cross the Jordan River. However until Chapter 3, neither the officers nor the people would ask, “How to cross the river?” Joshua 1: 11, “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’” The first command given by Joshua was very simple: Get your food ready. Three days from now you will cross the river. But he did not mention about how to plan, organize and make strategic set up, and how to prevent the enemy of Jericho from sending troops to attack. Instead, they stayed by the Jordan River for three days.
What do you think Joshua was doing during those three days? Pray? Seeking God’s will.
Joshua 3: 1-3, “Early in the morning Joshua and all the Israelites set out from Shittim and went to the Jordan, where they camped before crossing over. After three days the officers went throughout the camp, giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it.”
The strategy came out after three days in Joshua 3: 7-13. “And the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I will begin to exalt you in the eyes of all Israel, so they may know that I am with you as I was with Moses. Tell the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the edge of the Jordan’s waters, go and stand in the river.’” Now the Lord told Joshua the secret of crossing over the river. And Joshua passed on the words to the people of Israel. In verse 13, “And as soon as the priests who carry the ark of the Lord—the Lord of all the earth—set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream will be cut off and stand up in a heap.” What a magnificent scene that 1-2 million people crossed over the river bed.
This is similar to the scene of which Moses brought the people of Israel to the Mount Sinai. Exodus 19 : 20, “The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up.” Why did Moses have to go up to the mountain? It was to seek for the guidance of God. In our journey with God, we need to learn to hear from God and then we can be led. At the end of times, if we want to survive, we must learn and practice to hear the voice of God. Seek His instructions and leading. Your five spiritual senses have to be opened. When we seek God’s will, He will train us and promote us. We will climb to the top of the mountain and wait for God’s instruction. God’s provision will come and we will not be in lack. These things will happen among the remnants. When the new tribe of God come to us carrying the power of this generation, they order the ground to be opened and the ground will be opened. The water will flow out of the rock. Like crossing the Jordan River, the river will be cut off, and the army can pass through the riverbed. In the last days we will see all these miracles. We will not be alone, and God will give the power of the last days in this age.
IV. Obey the call and join God’s army in the last days
A generation willing to be nameless and selfless are rising up. They are a new tribe, the army at the last days who will come with great power. In 2017, we shared about that the change has come. A new generation will follow the cloud of the Holy Spirit to move.
(1) “A new era of miracles”, A new season has arrived. After the supernatural provision and warfare, God’s people will enter into the Promised Land. The direction we are going is the one that none of the past generations of churches had ever been to, the New Jerusalem, Mount Zion of God, the Promised Land. Let’s not forget the falling of Israelites in the wilderness in the Old Testament. This is a painful lesson. We have come to the border of Mount Zion and we are entering a new season.
(2) Most of the churches do not know that we are in the transition of seasons. If you can not see it, you will not be able to enter. And as such you certainly can't lead this wave. The concert will change, the preaching will change, and the level of miracles will change.The transfer of Philip’s physical body will become common. And the nature will take orders from the sons of God.
(3) The old way of doing things, the old methods, the end of the old is disappearing. The new anointing will push the old away. (The old will be peeled off). The creatures must cooperate with us, and there will be a very good relationship between the creator and the creature, and they all run to the creator. How to talk to the animals is a very controversial topic in itself. ( Testimony: One night, I had a doubt about the story of the lion’s den in the Book of Daniel. How did Jesus help me to understand this answer? In 2000, I heard the birds talk and explain)
Do you know that everything is created by the Word of God? In 90’s, modern science found out the substance was originally composed of sound waves called quarks. We live by the light of God, and everything is created by God. We are all under the same frequency. When you become love yourself, the creation will recognize and cooperate with you. How to cooperate? If a storm arises from the creation, an army can be stopped. Moses did this in the past. Our rationality understands this, right? In the last days, all the creation are waiting for the sons of God to be revealed. After the Fall, human beings are under the control of Satan. Therefore,
(4) all the creation are waiting for us - the sons of God to be revealed. They are waiting for us to grow mature to have the authority belonging to the sons of God. When we become love and grow up to bear the image of the Son of God, the creation will be drawn to us. They will talk and communicate with us. You will have the ability to understand them and they will work with us.
When we talk about all things, we think of only the creatures on earth. But we have not thought of the creations in heaven, and the creations of the universe.
Judges 5: 19-20, ““Kings came, they fought,
the kings of Canaan fought.
At Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo,
they took no plunder of silver.
From the heavens the stars fought,
from their courses they fought against Sisera.”
Judges 5:20 mentions, “They fought from the heavens; The stars from their courses fought against Sisera.” Who are the stars? The angels. The stars run along their orbits. Once the stars leave their orbits and drop to the earth, they will cause tsunami, earthquake, flood, and hurricane. The movement of the moon can cause the tides of the oceans. The moon can raise the tides and lower the tides. Joshua could stop the sun from moving until the war ended. The stars stay in their orbits, but we can order the stars in the sky to cooperate with us and fight together. AMEN! When we grow up to maturity and show the identity of the sons of God, we can order the stars to work with us. In the end times, this will become our common daily life. To have the identity of the sons of God and the authority belonging to the sons of God.
When I had the training for the children's team in the last two weeks, I assigned a homework that sounded a little crazy, talking and communicating with your pets. Communicating with flowers and trees at your home. The children are not surprised at all. They like it very much, because when they were brought to heaven by Jesus, they often talked to animals and plants and talked to the birds at the door of the supermarket. We as adults will feel this is crazy.
For example: In summer, at 5 am every morning, the racoons will come to knock on the glass door to our back yard and wake me up, because my husband often blocks their nest under our backyard deck with bricks or stones. Once they successfully smashed the stones and wood, they were happy that they won this battle again. And they came to show their demonstration....The squirrels would jump on my apple tree and uses the apples to accurately hit my head. Because I cleaned up the apples fell to the ground. They were angry and protesting because I took away the apples they bite down. They really talked.
Romans 12: 2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
In this generation, we are going to do greater things than Jesus. We will go to new places to do God's work, to heal and to release the power of God. Whomever we touch, they will be released, cleansed and healed. The new generation will bring the power of the world to us. It is the ability that God has prepared them to resist against the world before the creation of the world. The transfer of the soul or the transfer of the body will happen, like what happened to Philip, Jesus, and Apostle John. Creative miracles will occur. Only by one sentence the crisis or the riots on the street can be stopped. With one sentence, the eyes of the enemy became dimmed and were blinded. (Testimonies in Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City in Beijing).
However, we do not know enough about these powers.
In the new season and new streams, earthquakes, tsunami, and volcanoes will obey the instructions of God's children. Volcanoes, storms will cease. Tornadoes will stop. The abusive nature and all things will take the orders of God's children. Ever thought that you will direct the weather? The nature will submit under your feet? Many people dare not to think this way. But that is God's authority given to his children. The lost authority in the Garden of Eden, which we will see now in this generation.
(5) At the end times, the Lord is gathering his army, even the children are to be recruited. The Lord is raising up the children as we have seen in our Prophet Elijah children’s fellowship. The children from around the world are called together to become the army of the Lord. They will participate the war in the second heaven at the end times. Among them are martyrs. God personally told them where to be martyred and how to die. The Lord also told them that when the knives of those who killed them fell down, just one second before the knives touch their necks, the soul has already come out of the body before they die (Enoch’s example). These revelations were placed in the hearts of the children who are only between the ages of 6 and 12, for the coming of the millennium, and for a better life. God is wonderful, preparing such beautiful vessels.
God uses them because they are innocent and pure inside. We see the work of the children in our children’s team. We are amazed at how God uses them. To the world, what they did are miracles. (They are so innocent. When they prayed, the terminal diseases were healed, demons were cast out. God uses them to evangelize and perform miracles.) They are a sign for the whole world, so that we understand and see that God is among us. The sons of God include not only children, but also young people, as well as the grown-ups and the elderly. Numerous thousands of young people will abandon their lives for the fulfillment of God's will, and the martyrs will emerge in large numbers in this generation.
(6) The Lord will raise up His army at the end of times. It is a united team, an army at the last days. Everyone must work as one. There will be no great or small leaders. They are all like one.
Matt. 17: 8, “When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.”
JOEL 2: 4-7
“They have the appearance of horses;
they gallop along like cavalry.
With a noise like that of chariots
they leap over the mountaintops,
like a crackling fire consuming stubble,
like a mighty army drawn up for battle.
At the sight of them, nations are in anguish;
every face turns pale.
They charge like warriors;
they scale walls like soldiers.
They all march in line,
not swerving from their course.”
These people have no sense of insecurity. They go out and come in like one person. The Lord will lead his army. When these things come, we will be changed by the new power. If we don't change, we will be left behind. At the end of times, there is no longer individual heroism, but teamwork cooperation. Like ants, if an ant finds something to eat, it will go back to find all the helpers to share the food. The activities of the spiritual realm are becoming more and more frequent. The Father has planned this era. We know the great revival at the last days is coming. Many people call this another wave of the Charismatic movement. The fact is that this wave will surpass the previous charismatic movement and will be the wave of love of life.
God will give the anointing of love, giving you the ability to experience the power of forgiveness and love in persecution. The great revival of love is coming. The Lord is searching for such kind of hearts on the whole earth. Who will be qualified? Who has love and forgiveness in the heart? Who is after God’s own heart? That is the heart transformed by the power of God. May God come to redeem our hearts.
This is no longer suitable for any model of the world's large ministry. These people will be those who are clean and pure hearted. With such kind of gifts, they will not build anything for themselves. They have been nameless, selfless and fearless. (NAMELESS AND SELFLESS, like the name of Teacher Ming). With great humility, they become the great army of the last days. They don't care if they can be remembered. They don't mind whether or not they can leave a name in the world. They offer all selflessly. They will serve in love at the end times. They will heal people and comfort the broken-hearted. Then they will disappear into the crowd. They will not allow anyone to build anything of their own in their names. Because once such kind of things happen, they begin to steal the glory that has belonged to God.
God will bring them everywhere in the world. They will impact the values of the world and the church. They will show the power of God everywhere. Miracles, revivals and harvest accompany them. And then they will disappear from that country. And God will take them to the next country and a new journey starts again. In this movement led by God, these people will not leave a name. God looks at inside honesty and motives of the people.
1Samuel 16: 7, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” The Lord is not looking for great ministry or great service. He is looking for those who are obedient and humble so that He can trust and walk with them. The focus of preparation is to prepare our hearts. How to align your heart with God. This is the right focus. The Pentecostals believe that the fruit of the Holy Spirit is what God is looking for. But how about now? Many sermons take the gifts as the fruits. Many of us are working with gifts, but not bearing any character or attribute of God inside. God will no longer allow such things to happen again and again in the last days. The new season has arrived and this time will be very different. God has prepared the heavenly army in heaven, who are the angels of battle. And on the earth an army have also been prepared. In heaven and on the earth, they are to cooperate with each other.
We really need to obey God's will. Pray with all our hearts. Put on the robes of humility. And stop building anything for ourselves. Anyone among us has ever used our gifts to build up our own ministry? If we can heal the sick, have God's powerful gifts, and can perform special abilities, these gifts will attract the attention of the world, but can you be nameless? As Jesus did, disappeared into the crowd, no one recognize who you are? Except the angels and God.
Everyone of us is contributing to the kingdom of God. But there is always a tendency to build something around us to bring glory to that person. This is dangerous. And it has happened often in the past.
Prayer: God is looking for someone. What he is looking for is not your gift, but your heart. We need to prepare our hearts. No longer waste time to look for external power. But to beg God to examine our hearts, to transform us by renewing our mind. Cleanse our hearts and examine our motives. To see our desire is to follow God or chase after ourselves. We want to become nameless and selfless people. We don’t mind if people on the earth recognize us or not. All we ask is that our names will be written in the Lamb’s book of life and our names will be remembered before the throne of God. We don't mind that no one knows us on the whole earth. We just want to be commemorated by God.
