None will necessarily be comfortable.
Time will accelerate as God IS shortening the days. The countdown of the shortening of days has begun. The clock has been ticking.
Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. (Matthew 24:22 and Mark 13:20)
A purer understanding of the Holy Scriptures will resonate within the remnant being called out.
Mockery and skepticism will increase. There will be heavy persecution and attacks against the church, but the increase will be phenomenal.
And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily. (Acts 16:5)
Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. (Acts 2:47)
It will be imperative that we understand and talk ONLY God’s word as to not take glory to ourselves.
Prominent leaders, you are being given this time to get it right and repent or feel the anger of God. Your time is now about up.
The prophets and prophetesses will rise early and become more noticeable because they will realize they must speak truth, which will be a little hard for some to understand because so many have turned away. The Apostle Paul had to do this in all of his letters.
…as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. (2 Peter 3:16)
Whether people like the tone in which the messages come forth, it will be truth from the Lord.
The church that Jesus spoke about and established will begin to grow, but not necessarily in buildings. God has places already set in motion and some are already established. The underground church will some arise, sooner rather than later.
God’s rod of correction has now become the rod of judgment and will strike in many places.
We will encounter two kinds of people. First, there will be those who will go all out and serve God unashamed and unafraid. Second, there will be those who will undermine the true ones and come against them, including some in our own household and our own church, even those we have ministered with. We will see them distance themselves from us or even depart from us. The Lord has shown me many will just stop calling or talking or ministering with us all of a sudden and we will wonder why, but it is because they cannot understand the hard sayings. They are used to their religious indoctrinations. They will even be OFFENDED the same way many people left Jesus because of His hard sayings.
There are many things, so we must be strong in the power of His might.
Above all, stand your ground.
Blessings to all!
