The days of human society on planet Earth, are nearly done. Surely we are so near the end. This world’s Saviour and judge will return at any moment…
“In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.”
Our planet is full of trouble of every sort and with intense distress for many people around the world. Wars rage, we can see the run up to many other conflicts being played out before our eyes. Everyone sees and can read the signs of these times. Sickness and plague are everywhere. Our drugs are loosing their potency. The physical Earth revolts and troubles hit communities of people- quake, tsunami, eruptions, extreme weather, and so on. The rich get richer and become corrupt. The poor starve and perish and few notice.
But there is something we seek. That God would pour out His Spirit on the whole planet and the effect of the redeeming power of Christ would be seen and felt in every community of people. God will raise men and women to foretell this blessing and to warn Earth’s inhabitants of the coming wrath, and the extraordinary blessing of knowing God.
This outpouring will be on men and women, old and young, servant and master. There will be no pecking order, no discrimination and voices raised will be in unity with the Spirit of God. It’s the spectacle of grace before the end comes.
In some parts of the world it has already started. People hearing the gospel, reading the Bible and being confronted in dreams, are coming to faith. Countries that have been closed to the Word of God now have scripture in their own language. Hearts yearn for a Saviour and the message of the gospel brings people to faith in the living Saviour- Jesus.
Mighty things are happening, but the West has been left behind, spiritually. Hearts are hard, and yet long for release. God will yet do a work to gather in His people and He will do it without the vestiges of our dead religion.
Then, when all God’s people are gathered in, when every chosen sinner is finally forgiven, Christ will come and the door will close…
