God is raising up a righteous remnant in these last days to demonstrate His power in unprecedented ways. And why not? It makes sense that during the same time when unprecedented trouble and unprecedented darkness are coming upon the world (Daniel 12:1, Isaiah 60:1-5), God would not leave His people powerless, but would grant us unprecedented works of power to show the world He is God and no one else can compare with Him.
Just as He promised, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19 KJV)
This righteous remnant will fulfill many prophecies that have previously been glossed over and misunderstood, such as when the Lord Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.” (John 14:12)
That’s an amazing statement because He performed many great miracles, which is why many people have reasoned He could not possibly have meant what it sounds like He meant. So they have tried to explain it away by claiming He must have meant the cumulative total of all signs and wonders performed by our entire generation would outnumber the cumulative total of what He did, but He did not say “they will do also.” He said, “he will do also.” He was not talking about the cumulative total of an entire generation. He specifically said individual believers would do greater works than He did! I believe He said what He meant and meant what He said, so why not just believe Him?
God has been preparing ordinary people for special assignments and will soon launch them into their season of fulfillment. In a vision in 1993, I saw unusual demonstrations of God’s power manifesting through ordinary individuals, unlike anything we have seen before. I saw God granting them power over the natural realm, so they could speak to physical objects and command them to do whatever they wanted. And why not? Isn’t that exactly what He promised in this passage?
22 And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God.
23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.
24 Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. (Mark 11:22-24)
This passage has also been glossed over and misunderstood, as many have reasoned He could not possibly have meant what it sounds like He meant. So they’ve tried to explain it away by claiming He must have meant figurative mountains, not literal mountains, but He did not say, “whoever says to obstacles that are like mountains.” He said, “whoever says to this mountain,” which refers to a specific mountain, so it must be a real mountain. Figurative mountains cannot be cast into the sea, but literal mountains can be. He specifically said individual believers who have faith to speak to this mountain without doubting in their heart, but believing what they say is going to happen, God will grant it to them and it will be done! Again, I believe He said what He meant and He meant what He said, so why not just believe Him?
Not only will there be unprecedented trouble, unprecedented darkness, and unprecedented works of power, but other prophecies reveal a 42-month tribulation period will bring unprecedented persecution of the righteous. (Revelation 6:9-11) Persecution has always come against anyone who demonstrates the power of the Holy Spirit because the enemy desperately attempts to discredit them, so it makes sense these mighty ones will see even greater persecution coming against them as they demonstrate God’s power in even greater ways than we have seen before, which explains why the Lord Jesus prophesied about our generation saying, “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.” (Matthew 24:9)
Just as the true meaning of these scriptures has been hidden, God has also hidden His righteous remnant, but both are now being revealed because the end of the age is upon us. The time has come when these things must be fulfilled, which explains why they are now being unsealed, as shown in the one-minute video at the bottom of this post. Apostle Ryan LeStrange shares a revelation God gave him for the new season ahead. Ryan is founder of Ryan LeStrange Ministries. His main points are transcribed here:
“The Lord says, ‘I am raising up unusual ministries. There are unusual realms of demonstration being unlocked in this hour.’
And the spirit of the Lord would say, ‘Don’t be afraid of unusual, uncommon realms of demonstration, for mantles that you have not seen before shall be unlocked in this season,’ says the Lord.
People often reject what they don’t understand, but God is inviting us to those realms. God wrought special, unusual, uncommon miracles through the Apostle Paul. I believe this is the day and the time of the uncommon and unusual, so embrace it and let God flow through you.”
As Ryan heard, God is raising up unusual ministries who will operate in unusual realms, but the unusual manifestations of God’s power will not be the only thing unusual about them. I believe they will also demonstrate unusual character, motivated by unusual love because without God’s nature in them, they would not be able to handle the unusual demonstrations He has planned for them. Their character will be transformed through their daily encounters with Him because it is impossible to encounter Him without being forever changed. They will demonstrate His divine nature, which He has put in them, transforming their thoughts and the motives of their heart, making them more like Him, which explains why they will be so unusual and uncommon, presenting a stark contrast to the unrighteous, which is what God showed me in a dream recently, which I shared in a post, “I will make a distinction between My people and your people.”
In addition to the prophecies listed above, I believe this righteous remnant will fulfill the greatest of all end-time prophecies, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Collectively, they will reveal the reality and glory of the Lord Jesus at precisely the same time as the identity of the antichrist is revealed, giving everyone a clear choice to make, so those who reject God will forever be without excuse. In His wisdom, God has planned to display His glory for all the world to see through His pure and spotless bride who will bring this age to a grand conclusion as the living fulfillment of the final book of the Bible.
Why not just believe God said what He meant and meant what He said? Why not just grab hold of these scriptures that have been overlooked for so long and begin seeing ourselves used by God to do these things? Why not just believe He created us for this purpose?
