The Final Victory

The victory of the Church is also the victory of Christ, for the Church is the body of Christ (Eph 1:22-23, 1Cor 12:12-27, Col 1:24 & Eph 4:4-16). David prophesied about Christ and said "When you go to war, your people will serve you willingly. You are arrayed in holy garments, and your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew.... He will punish the nations and fill their lands with corpses; he will shatter heads over the whole earth he himself will be refreshed from brooks along the way. He will be victorious." (Psa110:3,6-7 NLT).

The Lord is preparing his soldiers for he said "I, the Lord, have dedicated these soldiers for this task. Yes, I have called mighty warriors to express my anger, and they will rejoice when I am exalted" (Isa 13:3 NLT).

He is preparing is soldiers to execute His judgment. When the time comes they will know, for the banner would be raised, Christ would be exalted. And when the soldiers see this they shall rejoice and come out from the secret place where they are being trained by the Lord Himself.

"like dawn spreading across the mountains, a great and mighty army appears. Nothing like it has been seen before or will ever be seen again." (Joel 2:2).

They shall come out so quickly in their numbers, spreading all over, like a mighty invasion. Marching out to execute the judgment of God, nothing would be able to stop them or break their advances.

"Look at them as they leap along the mountaintops. Listen to the noise they make—like the rumbling of chariots, like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble... They break through defenses without missing a step." (Joel 2:5,8).

Yes, when it is time "the Lord shall utter his voice before his army:" (Joe 2:11 KJV). They will hear, for he had warned them saying "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." (Rev 2:7). They will come out and offer themselves willingly.

"from the womb of the dawn, His youth are to him as the dew." (Psa 110:3 NASV).

They attack with the strength and zeal of a youth. Their zeal and strength shall terrify their enemies that they shall flee. But the Lord has determined in his heart to crush all his enemies leaving no one alive. For he desire to "find all his enemies; his right hand will find those who hate him. He shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of his anger; The LORD shall swallow them up in His wrath, And the fire shall devour them." (Psa 21:8-9).

"And it shall be; That he who flees from the noise of the fear Shall fall into the pit, And he who comes up from the midst of the pit Shall be caught in the snare; For the windows from on high are open, And the foundations of the earth are shaken... It shall come to pass in that day That the LORD will punish on high the host of exalted ones, And on the earth the kings of the earth." (Isa 24:18 & 21).

Through his soldiers the Lord would chase after his enimies, "out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations" (Rev 19:15 KJV) and "he will shatter heads over the whole earth" (Psa110:6). As they continue in this chase of terror they will get tired and time of weariness will come, but they "will be refreshed from brooks along the way" (Psa110:7). The Lord shall be unto them a river that follows them and refreshes them in the time of weariness.

At the end the Lord would be victorious through his people, "for he must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet" (1Cor 15:25 NLT) and when he has done that "He (would) come to be glorified in His saints [on that day He will be made more glorious in His consecrated people], and [He will] be marveled at and admired [in His glory reflected] in all who have believed" (2The 1:10 AMP).

On that day we (all believers both dead and alive) shall rise up in the sky, boasting in glory, for we have been victorious.

Interpretation Of Revelation Chapter Twelve
Verses One And Two
Revelation 12 describe an event that will begin in our generation. The woman who is the heavenly Jerusalem (Isa 66:7 & Gal 4:26), is clothed with God and his glory. Psa 84:11 says "For the LORD God is our sun and shield; He gives us grace and glory" and in Rev 21:10 &11 "the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God, Clothed in God's glory" (see also Isa 62:1-3). The heavenly Jerusalem is built upon 12 foundation stones representing the 12 apostles of the Lamp (Rev21:14). The heavenly Jerusalem is the church (Heb 12:22-23) and she is crowned with the works of the apostles (Eph12:19-12). Beneath her feet lies the powers that rule the darkness (as the moon rules the night, read Luk 22:53 & Eph 1:20-23). Right now, in this present time she is in labor pains; she seem so ugly and the world couldn't recognize her. They say "how low has the church fallen, she is filled with thieves, deception and all forms of evil. She isn't that beautiful woman who put smiles on people faces, brings peace, healing and hope to every home and land." The church seems like she is dying spiritually but all of these are nothing but labour pains and the agony of giving birth.
Verse Three
The dragon is the old serpent called the devil. The devil had grown or metamorphose from a serpent into a red dragon with 7 heads, 10 horns and 7 crowns on his heads. The old serpent was a shrewd deceiver while the dragon is the ruler of the world. The devil who was the old serpent had to grow and modify himself in a way that he will be able rule all men (or flesh ) in the world. Eph 2:2 mentioned that the ruler of the world is "the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who works in the heart of those who refuse to obey God. " The devil had to metamorphose in a way that will enable him to penetrate into every man's heart in order to rule the world. Therefore the devil grew 10 horns which signifies 10 ways he could penetrate into the heart of men and make them act the way he wants. These 10 ways are the 10 weaknesses of all men or flesh. They are the door ways that gives the devil entrance into our lives. The 10 weaknesses can be found in all men (no matter how morally good you are) because they are the basic traits of the flesh, although one or more of these weaknesses may be predominant in some people. The 7 heads are 7 spiritual domains which means that the kingdom of darkness is divided into 7 sections. The 7 crowns of the heads shows that there are demons who are  in charge of these various sections, and they are known as the rulers of darkness. This is mentioned in Eph 6:12 ,  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but ...against the rulers of the darkness of this world,... "(KJV). The heads of the dragon uses all the horns to penetrate the heart of men and controlling or influencing the actions of men in the world. Therefore the dragon is the devil, the heads are segmented domains with delegated authorities and the horns are his strategies or weapons.
Verse Four
Despite how the devil have metamorphose from a serpent to a dragon there are still some things left unchanged. The dragon still has a tail like the old serpent. Devil is a lier and deceiver from the beginning and today he is still the father of lie (John 8:44). The tail of the dragon is lie. Heaven in the book of Revelation represent a place of authority and ruler ship. There are only two spiritual kingdoms in this world i.e kingdom of God which is ruled by the church with Christ as the head and kingdom of darkness which is ruled by the devil. This is why Revelation 12 mentioned only two beings in heaven. The stars have to belong to either of these two kingdoms. The dragon drag down the stars showing that it is not for the kingdom of darkness, it must be for the church. In Rev 1:20 Jesus explained that the stars represent the angels of the churches, so that each church had an angel. The word used in that verse for angel literally means messenger. Jesus said in Rev 2:1 "To the angel of the church in Ephesus write..." Jesus couldn't had instructed John to write letters to angels, if he wanted to give messages to churches through angels he doesn't need John to write letters to the angels. I believe the letters was written to the messengers of those churches. Therefore the stars represent messengers of churches. These messengers are human ministers sent to the Church by Jesus to deliver messages that will strengthen, correct, encourage and build up churches in the last days. Just as John the Baptist was a messenger sent to prepare the way for Jesus (Mark 1:2), these messengers in Revelation 12 are sent to prepare the Church for the birth of the male child. The Church have wondered from the truth of the gospel and just as John the Baptist, these messengers are meant to cry out for repentance, turn the Church back to her first love and purify the Church by the truth (read also Rev 2:1-5, Rev 3:1-3 & Ehp 5:26). Now the devil using his tail of deception dragged down one third of these messengers to the earth (or dirt). Through lies and deception the devil cause these messenger to fall. The devil thought by doing this he could prevent the male child from being born.
Verse Five
She shall give birth to a male child, who will rule all nations with an iron rod. 1John5:4 and Rev2:26-27 makes us know that the overcomers will rule all nations with an iron rod in this world not in heaven nor in the world to come, for people there don't need to be rule with an iron rod because there is no disobedience or evil. Therefore out of the church shall emerge a vast group of overcomers who will rule all the spiritual rulers and authorities with an iron rod, smashing them like clay pots. As they emerge the devil shall try to consume them but God will rescue them and give them his authority (hence "caught up unto God and his throne").

Verses Seven To Twelve
Verse 7 "And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels ". This is a spiritual battle that occur as a result of the fervent prayer of the overcomers against the powers of darkness. They (the overcomers not the angles) overcame the devil by the blood of the Lamp, they where not afraid of death as they fought against the powers of the darkness in prayer and in the power of the gospel (the truth or testimony of Jesus's victory). All the spiritual rulers in the heavenly places (Eph 2:2 & 6:12) will be cast down from power, with a great fall they shall be knocked out unconscious, weak and unable to operate properly. During this time the kingdom of God shall grow so mightily on earth as it power and salvation spread in a way that the world have never seen before. Salvation shall spread because the one who has blind people's eyes from believing the gospel had been cast down (2Cor 4:3-4).
Verses Six And Thirteen To Seventeen After the time of the overcomers the devil shall awaken, realizing his failure and that his time is almost up. He will go after the church and try to destroy her. He will send forth multitude of his agents into the Church to mislead the true believers but all of them shall be completely destroyed. With great miracles and power the Church will escape the devil and continue to exist and grow, although in isolation for three and half years. After the devil have realize that he can't touch the church, he will go after believers and persecute them for their faith. He will turn the world against the true believers. They would be greatly persecuted for three and half years.
        Note: The book of Revelation chapter twelve end badly for Christians but other part of the book of Revelation shows how powerful and victorious the Church will be. One joyful thing that Revelation twelve tells us is that a fire is kindle in the Church. For the first time the Church brought the devil to his knees, the Church is finally entering into the stage of  full maturity and as this kindled fire is stirred up during the three and half years of persecution it will grow so wild and consume all of her enemies.
Revelation Chapter Nineteen
     This is the last revival the Church will ever experience and it will take place after the three and half years of persecution. The Church had now been refined with both the great tribulation and the fall of Babylon (false and religious Christianity). At this time the Church had grown into maturity, for the Bible says "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:" (Eph 4:11-13 KJV). [There will always be baby Christians in the Church and the level of maturity of the Church will affect the stature of those who are said to be matured among her] And when the Church is fully matured her children is a perfect man who looks like Christ in his fullness (1John 4:17, 2Cor 3:18, Eph 3:19, Col 2:9 & Col 3:10). This perfect man is what Revelation chapter nineteen described.  The perfect man is the united force of all the mature believers as at that time. That man is Christ coming down from heaven through his people.

Verses Eleven To Sixteen
     "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True,..." The perfect man (i.e matured believers) is true and faithful to the core (Gal 5:22). "and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." Believers had grown to where they judge righteously (1Cor 6:2-3). Criticism and discord had cease among believers and now they know their true enemies. "His eyes were as a flame of fire,..." The perfect man looks like Jesus (Rev 1:14 & Heb 1:7). His anger burn against evil for he hates evil and he carries out judgment zealously. He is able to divide unholiness from holiness. His flaming eyes exposes every unholiness, laying naked every corruption. "and on his head were many crowns;..." These believers are more than conquerors for they have come out victoriously during the three and half years of persecutions and trials, as a result they wear crowns of a conqueror (Rev 6:2 & Rev 3:11-12). "and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself." Each of these overcoming believers has names that no one know but themselves (Rev 2:17). "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood:" These believers are not just redeemed by the blood of Jesus but they also have a deepened understanding of the blood of the covenant and with access into the fullness of the power made available to them through the covenant they go into war (Rev 12:11). "and his name is called The Word of God." The Perfect man who is the children of the bride of Christ do not just resemble their Father (Isa 9:6) but they also bear his name. Just as a child has two names, one is of his Father (Eph 3:14-15) and the other belonging to him, so the perfect man has two names, one of his father and the other belonging to him in which no man but only himself knows. "And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean." These believers went into battle with all the spiritual forces assigned to them by God. They wage war against the devil with supernatural help from God. "And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations:" They conquered their enemies by speaking the word of God which "is living and powerful, and sharper  than any two-edged sword, piercing even  to the division of soul and spirit, and of  joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the  thoughts and intents of the heart." (Heb 4:12). They use God's word to "overthrow and destroy  strongholds, refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ," (2Cor 10:4-5 AMP). This is definitely not a physical battle but a spiritual battle between light and darkness. "and he shall rule them with a rod of iron:.." Ever since Christ ascended to heaven he had been ruling the world through his people (1Cor 15:25, Psa 2:9 & Rev 2:26-27). The Bible says "After that comes the end (the completion), when He delivers over the kingdom to God the Father after rendering inoperative and abolishing every [other] rule and every authority and power. For [Christ] must be King and reign until He has put all [His] enemies under His feet." (1Cor 15:24-25 AMP). The battle in Revelation chapter nineteen is the final battle where he abolishes all of his enemies and he will do this through his body (his people). "and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God." This means that God uses this perfect man to execute judgement and to express his wrath against the evil ones. "And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords." The perfect man goes into battle in the name of the Lord just as David did (1Sam 17:45, Psa 20:5-7,Psa 118:10-12 & 26).
Prophecies Concerning The Coming Revivals
     The following prophecy was given by Kenneth E. Hagin on February 17, 1975: And knew ye this, that the Lord has an army. Yea, He is preparing His own. No! The church will not grow weaker and weaker and weaker and lie down and expire. But she shall grow stronger and stronger and stronger for a fresh visitation of heaven is at hand. Yea, a new revelation of truth shall burst forth in all of its glory unto those who are called by His Name. And they shall realize that in their grasp, in their hand all the while, was that mighty Name that is above every name. And they, with that Name upon their lips and with faith in their hearts, will speak forth unto the enemy and say, “Thus far shall ye go and no further.” And he shall desist in his maneuvers, and stop in his operations. And the hand of the enemy shall be stayed. And the harvest that is to be reaped shall be reaped. For the harvest is plenteous, and the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest. And so men, yea, if you please. Some would call them a “NEW BREED,” shall rise up and go forth. They shall not be afraid of the devil. They shall have no fear of men but with boldness shall they speak and shall challenge the very strongholds of the devil. And there shall be a great shaking.  But those who are settled in upon the Rock of Ages, shall stand and shout above the storm. And see above the darkness the might of God breaking on the horizon of time and they shall be reflectors of that Light that shall shine forth into the darkness. And the blinded eyes of Satan’s kin shall be opened by men. Men inspired by God, equipped by the Spirit, called by the Lord. Set in the Body of Christ to shine, to testify, to preach, to minister. And so like a giant that Body shall rise, shall shake off those things which would hinder and break asunder the bonds of tradition and religion that has them bound. And go forth with the pure revelation of truth that’ll cause the lame to leap for joy. And the Blind to see both spiritually and physically. And there shall sound throughout  the land the cry and the hue of “Hosanna to the Lord!  Hallelujah! Great is His Name and greatly to be praised.” And the last soul shall have been won. And the last spirit shall have been saved.  And that Body shall have been completed. And then the cry shall come forth, “Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet Him.” And in the ages to come, eons upon eons, that Body of believers shall show forth His glory and majesty forever and forever. 
      This prophecy was delivered a few years ago through Pastor Rod Parsley from Columbus, Ohio: God delivered this word to wake His Church from a spiritual stagnancy and to get it ready for a new anointing coming upon the earth, and it goes"...Have you not read in My Word and gained understanding that never a greater prophet lived that John the Baptist? My forerunner has gone before Me, and it is time for My forerunner again. Upon My first advent into this earth I sent My forerunner with an explicit message... as I sent My forerunner before Me that day, so will I send My forerunners this day... They shall come forth not from those areas that you would assume, even as John came not forth from Jerusalem. John came forth from the wilderness. My forerunners shall not come from ivory palaces. They shall not come from schools of higher learning. They shall come forth from My Presence, where they have walked with Me in the wilderness, where there has not been man nor beast to minister unto them. I would not have their message defiled, nor would I have their message marred by mere mortal man. For I the Lord your God shall speak by My Spirit unto them. They shall come forth eating locusts and wild honey, and by that I would say unto you that they will have no dependency upon the world. They will not depend on man or organizations. They shall not depend upon anything but Me to sustain them, for I, the Lord your God, have them right now in the wilderness. I have them in the back places of the desert and I am feeding them with manna from heaven. I am sustaining them by My breath and I am breathing on them afresh, for it is almost time for their demonstration. When they come forth, hear My voice in their words, and gain understanding from what I shall say.For I, the Lord, shall bring them forth and, because they depend on no man, their voice shall not be marred... By this know that they shall receive the first part of the message. Even as the message of John coming forth out of the wilderness was "Repent," so shall the message of My prophets this day be... I desire to send refreshing, but first must come repentance . As you repent you shall feel the winds of refreshing by My Spirit. The latter rain shall ride upon the wings of repentance. When I hear your voice crying unto Me, I will blow the spirit of refreshing upon you and then you shall be restored. In the final hour, I will restore healing power to your hands... So repent, and I shall refresh you; and then shall be the restoration of all things and finally My return. But I cannot return unless My way is paved, and I cannot pave My way until the prophets speak for Me. The sound of their hoof beats are nigh at hand. Listen well. You have walked so much in the flesh that it has been hard for you to really discern what comes from My Spirit. But I will teach you. I will tell you. I have My prophets in the wilderness, but the wilderness gate is open and the prophets are nigh at hand!
       This Prophecy was given by David Minor in April 6, 1987 and was published in The Morning Star 1988-89: The Spirit of God would say to you that the wind of the Holy Spirit is blowing through the land. The church, however, is incapable of fully recognizing this wind. Just as your nation has given names to its hurricanes, so I have put My name on this wind. This wind is named HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD. Because of a lack of understanding, some of My people will try to find shelter from the wind, but in so doing, they shall miss My work. For this wind has been sent to blow through every institution that has been raised in My name. In those institutions that have substituted their name for Mine, they shall fall by the impact of My wind. Those institutions shall fall like cardboard shacks in a gale. Ministries that have not walked in uprightness before Me shall be broken and fall. For this reason, man will be tempted to brand this as a work of Satan, but do not be misled; this is My wind. I cannot tolerate My church in its present form, nor will I tolerate it. Ministries and organizations will shake and fall in the face of this wind... Be not dismayed, for after this, My wind shall blow again. Have you not read how My breath blew on the valley of dry bones? So it shall breathe on you. This wind will come in equal force as the first wind. This wind too will have a name.  It shall be called THE KINGDOM OF GOD . It shall bring My government and order. Along with that it shall be bring My power. The supernatural shall come in that wind. The world will laugh at you because of the devastation of that first wind, but they will laugh no more. For this wind will come with force and power that will produce the miraculous among My people and the fear of God shall fall on the nation. My people will be willing in the day of My power,” saith the Lord. “In My first wind that is upon you now, I will blow out pride , lust , greed, competition, and jealousy and you will feel devastated, but haven’t you read, ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.’? So out of your poverty of spirit I will establish My kingdom... Only those who have turned their faces into the present wind shall be allowed to be propelled by the second wind... The church of this nation cannot contain My power in its present form. But as it turns to the wind of the Holiness of God, it shall be purged and changed to contain My glory. This is judgment that has begun to the house of God, but this is not the end. When the second wind has come and brought My harvest, then shall the end come.”
       Extracted from the book "The Coming Restoration" by Kenneth E. Hagin: A Pentecostal minister from England visited me several years ago here in my office on the RHEMA campus. He’s now in his 70s. Smith  Wigglesworth held a week-long meeting in his church the week before he went home to be with the Lord. This brother told me what Wigglesworth had told them that week before his homegoing in 1957: “There is coming a move of God, but I’ll not live to see it.” The English brother continued, “Wigglesworth said that the greatest move of God yet will come in the ’80s.” (I had always had the same conviction.) He told me that Wigglesworth said, “In our day, in this revival, we’ve had a move of the gifts of the Spirit, but very little teaching of the Word. There is coming a revival of the teaching of the Word of God, and after that revival comes, there will come that fresh anointing of the Spirit. And the combination of the two revivals will bring the greatest move we’ve ever seen!”
       Extracted from "Growing In The Prophetic" by Mike Bickles: The body of Christ will participate in the greatest revival in all history in the generation in which the Lord returns. The greatest outpouring of the Spirit in history will be released just before Jesus’ second coming. In this great revival, the Holy Spirit will release the miracles that were seen in the book of Acts and the book of Exodus combined and multiplied on a global scale... I didn’t see a vision, and I wasn't taught up into heaven. I simply heard God speak to me. It wasn't what some people call the audible voice. I call it the internal audible voice. I heard it as clearly as I would have heard it with my physical ears, and, honestly, it was terrifying. It came with such a feeling of cleanness, power, and authority. In some ways I felt I was being crushed by it... I only heard a few sentences, and it only took a few moments, but every word had great meaning. The awe of God flooded my soul as I experienced a little bit of the terror of the Lord. I literally trembled and wept as God Himself communicated to me in a way I’ve never known before or since. The Lord simply said, “I will change the understanding and expression of Christianity in the earth in one generation.” It was a simple, straightforward statement, but I felt God’s power with each word as I received the Spirit’s interpretation. God Himself will make drastic changes in Christianity across the whole world. This reformation revival will be by His sovereign initiative.
      REVOLUTION by Rick Joyner May 2000: A revolution is coming to Christianity that will eclipse the Reformation in the seeping changes that it brings to the church. When it comes, the present structure and organization of the church will cease to exist, and the way that the world defines Christianity will be radically changed. What is coming will not be a change of doctrine, but a change in the basic church life. The changes that are coming will be so profound that it will be hard to relate the present form of church structure and government to what is coming. The new dynamic of church life will overshadow the Great Awakenings in their social impact, transforming cities and even whole nations. It will bring a sweeping sense of righteousness and justice to the whole earth. However, we must not be fooled into thinking that this is an end of the night, or the end of man’s battle with darkness. What is coming to the church is a metamorphosis from the cocoon stage to the emergence of the beautiful, soaring, beauty that the church is called to be. For a time this transformation will release a life force that will be so great that it will dominate the news around the world. The church will truly be the light of the world and the salt of the earth. The light of the gospel will shine through the church to the degree that the whole world will see it, and the gospel will be clearly, and powerfully presented to every nation on earth. We are not quite to the flashpoint when this revolution will break out. As we get closer it is becoming more clear what it will look like, and what it will accomplish. The future leaders of the church are now being given a vision of radical New Testament Christianity being restored to the earth. I have also written about a coming “civil war” in the church, but this coming revolution is different. The civil war was the result of the confrontation with, and removal of, several major spiritual strongholds within the church. The revolution that is coming will be more expansive than that. However, what is coming will seem like the breaking forth of all of the volcanoes and earthquakes the world has ever known at once. This will be one of the major events in the history of the world. During this time, the foundation will be lad for the kingdom of God to come to the earth. When this great world-wide move of God breaks out, it will come like a tidal wave. The churches and ministries that are not prepared will be swept away by it. The armies of God in heaven and on earth are mobilizing now. When they march, it will be the most awesome and fearful sight the world has ever seen. In some places, this army will appear so fast that it will seem to have come out of thin air. Instantly, the greatest spiritual force the world has ever seen will descend upon the earth. To those who are unaware of what is now taking place, it will be like peacefully going to sleep and waking up the next morning to the fact that your entire city, and in some cases, nation, has been occupied by a foreign army. This will be because the army existed right in the midst of the cities without anyone realizing it, including many who are in the army. This will happen suddenly because Christians will begin to stand up for the Lord, for the truth, and the gospel. Instantly, the church will become an overwhelming spiritual force. Whole cities will be taken for Christ before the evil forces of those cities even suspect an attack against their strongholds. Because this is the true liberation army, salvation, healing, and restoration will flow like rivers of the glory of the Lord through the streets. Rejoicing is not an adequate word to describe the celebrations that will then break out across the earth. There will be large gatherings in parks, stadiums, and other public places. There will be many cities where home groups will be meeting on every block, every day. I saw large worship services breaking out at truck stops and in airports.  Wherever people were gathered, celebrations would break out. Some turned into spontaneous marches for Jesus. The marches will begin gathering multitudes as they go, while singing, worshiping, and proclaiming the glory of the Lord. Whole news programs were devoted to the extraordinary works of charity that were taking place. These news programs and reports fanned the flames of generosity and sharing even more. This kind of love is a spiritual force that no evil can resist or stand against. The magnitude of this overflow of thanksgiving to the Lord by helping the needy almost instantly changed the spiritual atmosphere of the cities that were experiencing it.  
"Surely the Lord GOD does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7).

  1. I would like to state that I wrote this post a long time ago and at the time I wrote it the Lord was revealing to me a coming revival and He used the book of revelation to speak to me. I might have, in my childishness, fall into an assumption that God was trying to give me the interpretation of the book of revelation when all He was actually doing was to tell me of a coming revival. I should have deleted the post or at least remove the interpretation part but I feel there is something there that might be beneficial to someone out there.

    Let me be clear, right now I do not believe that to be the real interpretation of the book of revelation. In fact I no longer care about interpreting the book of Revelation, I am only about doing what God specifically instruct me to do
