I could also tell you about how I was also texted by the organizer during the event saying, "ANTIFA just got dispatched to us so it is about to get disruptive. Please pray!" So, I did my job and mobilized our network to pray. Bottom line Antifa never showed. Praise God it went undisrupted unlike our last event at Cal Anderson Park the month before. It turned out that people dressed in hazmat suits carrying bowls of blood to toss on attendees were intercepted and the police were called. So praise God! The prayers of the saints intervened. Praise God! But that is not what this article is really about. It is about what God said to me at the event. If you'd like to see pictures and video from this event or the people in hazmat suits visit our ministry's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/kingdomleague.
I've got to say, I believe we have a modern day Jesus Movement on our hands and Sean reminds me of Keith Green in many respects. Lord I pray, have Your way.
What Did God Say that Led to a Sign & Wonder?
I was told by our host to be available just in case I was called on to pray. As I arrived, I asked God for a word. What did He want me to pray? What word did He want released? He took me to Hebrews 1:7-9 which says, "And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels winds and His ministers a flame of fire." But to the Son He says: "Your throne O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions."
Now we are praying with compassion and asking for God to have mercy on communities that are being evacuated and displaced. At the same time I submit to you, this is a sign and a wonder.
What Does This Point To?
The prophet Bob Jones prophesied about a billion soul harvest starting in 2020. Click here. Several prophets spoke about how God was releasing the angels of harvest such as Jennifer LeClaire. Click here. The prayer team working with the host all agreed that September 7th, Labor Day, was a sign and that we were to all pray that the Lord of the harvest would send laborers into the harvest. I submit to you, God is answering these prayers.
My friends, these winds and these fires, no matter how they started are a sign and a wonder. Don't be enamored with the sign but rather pay attention to the scriptures the sign points to. God wants us to pray and act upon those words. What else does this sign point to in God's word besides the fact the wind is a sign of Him releasing His angels and the fire is a sign that He is releasing His ministers to go into the harvest. I will underline portions of scripture for emphasis.
Lying Tongues Have Set our World on Fire
James 3:5-6 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.
We Are Personally Responsible for our Eternal Destiny & Hell is Real
Matthew 18:8-9 "If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
God Does Not Desire that any Perish
2 Peter 3:7-9 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
Snatch Them Out of the Fire
Jude 1:20-23 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction; 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
God Is Preparing His People, His Church, for His Habitation
Isaiah 4:3-6 And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. 4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, 5 then the LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. 6 And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain.
God is Purifying His Ministers
Malachi 3:1-3 "Behold, I send My messenger,
And he will prepare the way before Me.
And the Lord, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
In whom you delight.
Behold, He is coming,"
Says the LORD of hosts.
2 "But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner's fire
And like launderers' soap.
3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;
He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to the LORD
An offering in righteousness.
The scriptures teach us that God is love and God is also a consuming fire. I sincerely believe these challenges, this judgment that has been brought on us by peoples decisions has been allowed by God and He is using it for the sake of the harvest. He is using it to prepare His people so they can stand in the fire of His love. Join me in praying and proclaiming, heavenly Father, let Your kingdom come and Your will be done. May Your word run swiftly to accomplish all you sent it to do. May You receive a Church prepared for Jesus like a bride without spot, wrinkle or blemish. May you be magnified and receive a harvest of disciples worthy of the sacifice of Your Son. May you receive sheep naions who've been transformed by an encounter with you. Maranatha!
