Joel gives us a picture of the army of God. This is a picture of the coming
army that God has been raising in the wilderness.
This nugget gives a picture of doctrine which is not founded in the Classic
foundation and is likened to a white-washed wall that will fall in the
Isaiah gives a prophetic picture of the last of the last days. This
nugget reveals seven characteristics of the end-time revival.
Malachi's prophetic picture of the last revival. He suddenly comes to
His temple as a Refiner's fire.
It has had its beginnings in the wilderness many years ago. The main trust
of the reformation and revival is ahead.
The missing link is our personal relationship to Jesus. The foundation
needs to change to bring a deep change here.
An analogy which illustrates and brings forth truth concerning the church
in the last of the last days.
Reformation precedes revival. The first miracle is the healing of the
waters. It opens the door to the coming tidal wave of the miraculous.
God in His mercy sends a storm - a severe global economic storm - to wake
us up and to bring revival to Nineveh.
Judgment is coming to the house of God. Judgment comes by a new threshing
sledge which separates the wheat from the chaff.
Reverence is the key to the inner court and to the coming signs and wonders.
Sheep are wary of drinking water that moves quickly or that is agitated.
That is why shepherds take their flock to still water.
There is a third experience that is important. It is the dying to self
or taking up your cross.
Fire separates the brass from the gold. The gold is refined in the wilderness
and will become pure in the crucible of harshness.
Judgment comes on all worship which is in the flesh. Holiness and reverence
are key here. A generation has to die.
The perfect storm is still coming. We have seen something like it before.
However, the main storm is still ahead of us.
The Pentecostal move was the first wave. The Charismatic movement was
the second wave. Those of the third wave do not regard themselves as either
Pentecostals or Charismatics.
Amos gives us a prophetic picture of the transition from the charismatic
era to the last move of the Holy Spirit. Praise and worship changes.
Those who are not established in the rock-solid Classical Christian foundation
defile the temple of God.
Naomi did not know that an idol remained in her heart. Many in Laodicea
also have idols in their hearts today.
Lakeland is strange fire. Some thought Lakeland was the beginning of the
final tidal wave. It was not.
The main purpose of the shaking is to change the foundation. God is very
sovereign in this shaking and His purpose is clear.
Job finally saw the truth that God is sovereign and in control. He realized
that he must accept the current circumstances as from the hand of God.
A great shaking will take place. Afterwards there will be a shaking in
the kingdom of God. Then the end will come.
