We have crossed an invisible line in the spirit that many have discerned and can feel. It is like crossing a state line during a road trip. You can’t see the state line like you would on a map, but it is there nevertheless. You have moved into a new jurisdiction and you can sometimes even discern the difference in atmosphere.
In America and around the world, the Redeemed New Covenant believers are feeling and sensing that a shift is happening and while they cannot put their finger on the full nature of this shift, it is universally agreed that “something is happening behind the scenes.”
For centuries, bible students have poured over the prophetic scriptures and bible prophecy to anticipate and prepare for the days preceding the return of Jesus Christ.
Many scriptures talk about the time immediately preceding the coming of the LORD called “the Day of the LORD” within the Holy Scriptures as a time of great upheaval and change.
One of the principles of the Kingdom buried in the pages of the bible is playing a key role in the unfolding of these prophetic events and we are seeing it unfold in front of us all, whether we know it or not.
Written nearly two thousand years ago by Apostle Peter, the following words now foretell of a time many are starting to feel even now.
Peter wrote … “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”
In this statement, the Apostle spoke a prophetic utterance that has remained a kingdom principle in every transition from one spiritual season to the next. Each beginning, not with the world … but with those whom have and carry the name of YHWH God.
This principle is clear. Judgment does NOT begin in the world and among the unbelieving or disobedient. It begins with the household of YHWH God. After passing through the Church, the judgments of YHWH God extend beyond to the world about. This has always been the case and has continued to this day.
Some believe that all is well and there is nothing but happiness and wonderful times ahead. There are those who are prophesying that there are many decades to come of many things and so, the Church need not be concerned with all that is happening in the world today because the time of judgment is not yet.
Still others believe that no judgment shall ever be upon the Church as Christ took all upon himself. A notion clearly lost on Apostle Peter as he, along with the other apostles, continuously warned the believers in their letters and provoke them all to prayer, humility, and repentance that they may escape.
This “brand” of Christianity is as unpopular now as it was in the time of the writings. It calls for a level of devotion and sanctification that few wanted to embrace. While all want the benefit of the Kingdom, the pathway of the KING is narrow and difficult.
Apostle Paul warned also in his letter to the Thessalonians about something foreboding that would precede the coming of the KING.
“… Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first …”
For centuries this has been called the “great falling away” which we are witnessing at unprecedented levels today. Whether or not we will witness an even greater measure beyond our current ability to fathom remains to be seen but this one thing is clear.
From the founding of the authentic Church until today, there has never been before this time such a wholesale departure from the faith as there appears to be now.
What we are seeing is the making of micro-cults, lookalike churches, deviations of so many types that the impression one would get from the outside is that the Church of the KING is scattered and splintered into fragments.
While it appears like this and certainly many think this is the case, they are mistaken.
Divine Unity Not Made With Human Hands
The reality has always been and shall always be that the LORD preserves a group so interwoven in the spirit, so united … that they are ONE even without knowing of one another.
This is not visible in the way that man in the carnal or natural self views organizations, denominations, churches, and other groups, factions, sects, and orders. It is not discerned in the natural world. This is why many miss it but it is real.
Like the Holy Angels fully united and fighting as one united force despite the variety and diversity of their callings, purposes, and powers, the Church of the Firstborn has always been united.
Like all things of the spirit this is not something that can be confined nor retained into a natural organization nor can it be quantified by any natural mechanisms for carnal man is easily distracted by such things.
This United Body is comprised of people of every race and cross every barrier and line erected by men. These are they which follow the lamb of God and do so without natural markings or outward showings but instead by circumcision of heart.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of YHWH God, they are the Sons of God.”
Signs In The Heavens
Far above all that man can “brand” and “copyright” or “trademark” are the signs of YHWH meant to call attention to that which HE alone can say and perform. He uses such things to bring about awareness and grant choice to sovereign beings. He lays before man as was laid before the Holy Angelic Host a choice between life and death.
One third of the angelic host choose poorly. They followed the rebel Lucifer and now lead rebellion against the crown on Earth to a final confrontation.
In the heavens we are told that YHWH would make his times and seasons known and it is through the use of such things that HE marks a change and shift.
Divine Celestial Markings
In the time of the coming of Messiah, a star was used to mark the coming of Messiah and was a marker that wise men of the East used to indicate the time had come.
Centuries before, the Holy Prophet Daniel had risen to unparalleled prominence among the wise men. He was renown among them as the wisest of them all and having no heirs, he set aside his vast wealth with a divine purpose. Remember that it was Daniel the Prophet that not only prophesied the coming of the King but even the end of days.
He commanded that his instructions would be passed down from generation to generation until the coming of Messiah.
Upon seeing the sign in the heavens, the wise who discerned the season following the instructions of the great Prophet Daniel, knew that the time to take the gifts set aside had come. They set out to honor the coming of the King of Kings.
They traveled to Bethlehem and delivered Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh to lay before the KING of all glory who was manifest in the form of a man.
In the same way, the God of Heaven continues to use his celestial bodies to mark the changes of times and seasons today.
The same one who had received these wise men as a babe in a manger also spoke of signs in the heavens.
Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken”
He foretold of the time immediately preceding the coming of the Kingdom to full manifestation in the natural realm and declared that the very heavens would declare the majesty for all to see.
All that could be shaken would indeed be shaken.
The Holy Prophet Joel also prophesied and declared, which Apostle Peter repeated and was again repeated in the Revelation that we would see a great sign in the heavens that NONE could miss.
Joel 2:31 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”
These signs coupled together mark a significant celestial event that let the wise upon the earth discern that a transition is occurring.
In this present year, we are about to witness yet another of these moments of great transition. For the first time since 1967, there will be a sign in the heavens that will mark the holy feast of Passover that the wise have discerned is another great divine marker.
The moon shall be made red as blood … and the sun will be eclipsed turning the sun to darkness … drawing attention upward and for those with discernment, to the KING and the Kingdom.
We will also see the blood red moon on the feast of Sukkot called Tabernacles which was the feast which marked the coming of Messiah and many believe is the actual feast of his birth. So we have blood red moons marking the birth and sacrificial death burial and resurrection of Messiah King of Earth.
What does this mean for those whom are part of the Kingdom of Heaven upon the earth?
Revelation 12:12 “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
This coming transition is Great and Terrible. For those who abide in the heavens and even those who walk with great discipline in the Spirit shall rejoice but the carnal and those who abide on earth and earthly things shall suffer greatly by the hand of the wicked one who will unleash his wrath against the redeemed.
In vengeful rage, the forces of darkness shall bring about increasing hostility and reckless hatred toward all things of the Kingdom and where possible, attack, harm, and even kill the very elect of God.
With increasing relentless and brutal attacks, the adversary will work tirelessly to bring about the destruction and annihilation of all things that pertain to the Kingdom of Heaven as he rampages against the judgment of YHWH God that rests upon him and all his followers.
The wretched and abominable things that have been hidden shall come boldly into the light to be seen openly and unashamedly into the LIGHT as with reckless abandon, the world embraces Lucifer and even those whom were once counted among the redeemed fall away and run after the lies of the silver tongued deceiver of mankind.
All that can be shaken will be shaken. An increase of earthquakes and very large shakings shall soon occur and devastating disasters, both natural and man-made shall manifest in the world as the time of great woe comes upon the earth.
How long shall these days last? No man knows. Let no man deceive you with speculation and private interpretation of that which has been hidden by divine power until the appointed time. There now comes a time of revealing of mysteries that have been locked until this time.
These mysteries hold the keys to the scriptures that many have sought to understand and unlock for thousands of years but could not for they were encrypted by the Father to preserve them for this season alone.
The time of the Seven Thunders and the manifestations of both great evil and darkness as well as amazing light and goodness shall come upon the earth.
We have passed this threshold. We cannot bring unity to anyone in this time. Either one is grafted into the body and is made united by the Holy Spirit or not but man has no way of making this happen apart from the divine power of God.
Apart from HIM we can do nothing and this has always been the case. The truly redeemed know something that the tares do not. You cannot defeat a full time devil with a part time commitment, and only a mental transformation. You must become a new creature that is wholly transformed.
Only the ones whom have no attachments or love of this world shall overcome him and many shall find that they are ill prepared for the onslaught that shall manifest in this next season.
Prayer, humility, unity and perfect love.
There is a mark upon the sanctified that extends beyond the natural and cannot be discerned by the religious nor the carnal. It is a mark of sanctification that only the Holy Angels under orders of the Holy Spirit can mark one with that separates them from the world.
It is more than one thing or another but a sanctified life that has and does honor YHWH God and the Messiah without compromise. The mark, token, sign, and distinction is upon them. They have forsaken the markings of man and religion and embrace the HOLY and DIVINE alone.
These, like Noah, have suffered for their separation and have stood fast building the Kingdom, the New Ark of YHWH for those who can be drawn into the place of safety in this hour.
Though many are called, few are chosen.
These are not marked with religious or carnal markings which indicate to the natural man that they are part of the Remnant, but instead have a marking that only YHWH can apply. These are they whom endure, overcome, and keep the commandments of YHWH God and His Messiah.
These are they who walk not after the flesh nor the things of the flesh but after the Spirit. They are set apart and there is no way to teach what they know for it is imparted from within by the anointing of the Holy Ghost.
Like the door of the Ark that closed upon the outside world to prevent any more from entering and kept the 8 from exiting, so the door of opportunity to enter the New and Living Way shall soon close for all mankind.
When this door closes there will be no more time and no more opportunity given to come into the Ark of God, salvation. Instead, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
