“Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”
The noteworthy expression of revival can be reflected from the prophetic utterance of Prophet Elijah: ''There is a cloud.....'' (1 Kings 18:44) Behold, the heavenly glory cloud is in the horizon! The glory rains of revival are coming! The fires of reformation will swept the Earth. The first wave of Reformation ( Classic Pentecostalism in the early 1900s);the Second wave (Charismatic Renewal in the 1960s), and the Third wave (the Neo-Charismatics in the 1980s) have all been birthed out of great earnest desperation for the restoration of the power of the Holy Spirit. Now, in this season, the 4 winds of God are blowing again and the bones shall become an exceedingly great army of the Lord.(Ezekiel 37: 9-10) The coming Fourth wave of Reformation will bring about the fullness of the power of the Holy Spirit exhibiting the powers of the age to come! (Hebrews 6: 5 ).The glory of Abba Father will manifest Himself on the Earth in great awe and power!(Deuteronomy 4: 11, 24, 35 )
At 11.02am on 15 December 2017, the Lord quickens these words of Habakkuk. Indeed 5778 is a season of great rejoicing! God shall grant triumphant victories for the church (Hab 3:13). What is the nature of this salvation? The spring season of Song of Songs 2: 10-14, has dawn upon Christianity! The winter has past! Spiritual barrenness is over! A new chapter and a new genesis of glory advancement shall emerge upon the Earth. The high-spirited singing and magnificent worship shall ascend another dimension. What is the Beloved saying to His overcoming Bride, “Come away!” Yea, come away with the Beloved (S.S. 4:8). Another depth of enriching intimacy for the rewards of greater fruitfulness (Jn 15:4-11).
Behold, the God of our salvation is coming to the Earth. A suddenlies from heaven will come forth like lightning. A glory invasion flooding the whole Earth (Isa 64:1-4). The wings of the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation have soared into the Earth! The winds of God have come! He is bringing out the gems of revelations out of His treasury (1 Cor 2:9-12). It is a year of abounding revelation and astounding unveilings. A year of exposure of wickedness in high places as well as a year of exaltation of righteousness. What is the Beloved saying to His beloved Bride, “My presence is My present as the gift of My empowering Grace.” (Ps 68:1-4)
Behold, salvation will overflow your cup in this season (Ps 23:5). This is a year of great grace! The God of my salvation shall adorn His beloved Bride (Isa 49:18). The manifold grace shall be given to the Bride: gifts (9 gifts of Holy Spirit); jewels (revelation and insights); rings (authority and power) and garments (mantles) to His seeking saints (Isa 61:10). It is the year of adornment! What is the Beloved saying to His precious Bride, “My mercy shall be your encompassing covering!” (Isa 49:13)
Behold, His salvation shall comfort our sufferings. This is a remarkable year of divine exchange! (Isa 60:17-18). Whatever was our former woes will be exchanged for wellness and worth in this season. You are not the forsaken or forgotten ones. You are the Mount Zion! You shall drink of the milk of the gentiles and the breasts of the kings (Isa 60:16). The place of hidden bliss and glory is at the feet of the Lord (Isa 60:13). Intimacy will unlock His greater blessings of Isaiah 60:9-11. What is the Beloved saying to His delightful Bride, “My feet is the source of My abounding providence!”
Behold the manner of thy salvation. The merriment of Habakkuk 3:18 in relation with Isaiah 61:10-11. It is the shining season of great glory of Isaiah 60. His pleasant favour shall exalt the horns of thy salvation (Ps 89:15-25; 92:10). It is the season of the glimpses of the New Jerusalem (Rev 21:2). The habitation glory shall reside over many portal regions of the Earth. His glory shall have a permanent seal on the Earth. The fresh supplies of the Menorah, the golden seven-lamp is empowering the Bride with the 7 spirits of God. What is the Beloved saying to His overcoming Bride, “Isaiah 61:1 is our priestly anointed portion!”
The watchword for this critical season of the 11th hour is found in Colossians 4:2, “Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving.” “Continuity” is a great catchword. It is grounded in an iron-clad habit. The same unabated pace and output for the progress of one’s goal. Continuity is the hallmark of a finisher. It takes God’s direction to know your journey. It takes your decisive choices to begin; it takes your passion to stay on; it also takes your integrity to finish it well!” Continuity is the outcome of the virtue of tenacity and diligence.
Continue in prayer; Continue in thanksgiving and worship; Continue to advance in the mystery of Christ (verse 3); Continue to be the Lord’s mouthpiece (verse 4); Continue to walk in wisdom, redeeming the time (verse 5); Continue to ‘season’ your speech with grace and salt (verse 6); Continue to be found fruitful in His perfect will of God (verse 12); Continuity is the essence of true discipleship (John 8:31, 32). What is the Beloved saying to the disciplined Bride, “Constancy is the secret of fruitfulness!” In 5778, be constant in your devotion to Christ. (2 Timothy 4:2, 5, 7)
The empowering strength of Christ shall be your abiding grace in this season (2 Timothy 4: 17, 18)
