And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers…… (Eph. 4:11)
In The Company of Prophets
In a dream this morning, I find myself sitting in a large Church with people from around the world. And with it, the keen awareness that I am in the company of true prophets. Suddenly, someone gives a prophetic word. Because it was recognized as a genuine utterance, my head bowed down in prayer. It was important that this Word was received with humility. After discerning the dream, it was recognized that the Word was a call to continue in prayer.
Urgent Call to Prayer
We are called to recognize the dark issues that are taking place in our nations from the highest political levels right on down to the grass root levels. Consequential events that are presently unfolding such as: increasing mistrust and wars between nations, famines, pestilences and diseases, lawlessness, immorality, earthly anomalies, deteriorating global financial systems and a looming falling economy are all markers relating to latter-day prophecies. Everyone will feel the consequences of these global events – no one will be immune. The devouring lion, the plotting devil, is in the works and even Believers are not always aware that they are being deceived and influenced by his powers and principalities – his “deceivers” ! (Spoken Word of Knowledge Cf. 1 Pet. 5:8; Eph. 6:12) Apart from all this, attacks can also take place even on very subtle levels. But those attuned to Christ and to His Word will recognize Satan’s dark agenda and will take the higher road, others the low road. It’s tragic, sad and true. But that is how deception works during these last days.
Secure Your Latter Day Armour
As always, the worldwide body of Christ who is unified in Spirit and in truth is called to abide in Him and to never doubt that the fragrant prayers of the faithful are heard. All parts of the warrior’s armor must be secured with prayer, vigilance and alertness during these critical days. (Eph. 6:10-18)
But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. (1 Pet. 4:8)
