GOD WILL USE YOU AS WE NEAR THE END OF THE LAST DAYS
Ray E Horton
The Great Awakening began 2,000 years ago with the death and resurrection of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit, and the spread of the Good News. But the spread of the true Gospel was greatly hindered, and is even today.
But now, near the end of the age, many believers are in faith, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, are tearing down those hindrances and strongholds that keep people in the dark, re-awakening Gods people for the concluding times of the Great Awakening, with the advance of the Kingdom and the harvest of the multitudes.
And the prophetic word of the prophet Isaiah is being fulfilled: “Arise, shine, for your light has come,and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,and thick darkness the peoples;but the Lord will arise upon you,and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light,and kings to the brightness of your rising” (Isaaiah 60:1-3). God is doing it, and He is doing it through His Body of sold-out believers.
Sold-Out Believers Being Used
Now, near the end of the age, many believers are in faith and by the power of the Holy Spirit are tearing down hindrances and strongholds that keep people in the dark
The lying strongholds and hindrances must come down as we speak forth the testimony of Jesus, and use the power and authority of the Holy Spirit that is vested in believers. And, God uses His Word and His Spirit, including sometimes, the word of the Lord brought forth prophetically, to encourage believers to get our hearts right and trust the Lord so that we will have the confidence to be bold, and the Lord can work through us to do it.
Even as Peter spoke forth in Acts 2, “But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy … And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved’” (Acts 2: 16-18, 21).
The Last Days Began at Pentecost
The prophet Joel prophesied this for the last days, and it was then, at Pentecost, that the last days began, and we are now near the end of those last days before the coming of Jesus. In the interim, whoever calls on the name of the Lord has been able to be saved. And His Spirit has been available to be poured out on all flesh. Where it is resisted, that is where we come in as His Body, His hands, feet and mouthpieces, to, by His Spirit, in prayer and declaration, break down those walls that stand in the way and encourage believers to re-awaken. We are near the end of the Last Days, and God wants to and will use you as you make yourself available to Him.
So arise and shine, and be fully transformed and available to the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, our redeemer and intimate lover, who lives on high, and lives within your heart.
