End time revival – Part 1
Most of the signs of the end of the age in Matthew 24 have been fulfilled. The only one that is yet to be fulfilled is the sign of worldwide revival that will usher in the second coming of Jesus, as stated in Matthew 24:14.
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end will come.”
This is a very clear promise of a revival to the church. This revival, like all the others, must also meet the conditions stated last week in this column. God is not a respecter of persons or group. He is a respecter of principles. He is the same. He has not changed. This promised revival in this Hour, in so many ways, resemble the revival in the Valley of dry bones. This is because; everything around us today speaks of nothing but darkness, hopelessness and deadness.
There is an increase in idolatry and occultism. Witchcraft is now being glorified even at the Pulpit. Pastors and Church leaders now sought after satanic powers. Occult rituals are now the order of the day in many churches. Schools are now breeding grounds for Satanism. Cults and gang wars are now the order of the day. Sexual perversion is now profitable. Sex shops are money-spinners. Products command high sales only when they are attached to sex symbols. Gay bishops are now being ordained. It is darkness all around as the list is endless. Everywhere you turn to, it is nothing but darkness. But the God of Ezekiel is still alive. He is still the God of the universe. He is ready and willing to up the stakes in this Hour. The valley is full of bones. Dead bones. Dry bones. Very dry bones. It looks difficult. No, it appears impossible. But our God is going to do a new thing. He is just asking His Ezekiels to co-operate with Him. God is raising an army. The army is not in the church now. It is in the valley. It is time for every genuine servant of the Lord to move his gaze and focus upon the valley. That is where the army is (Ezekiel 37:10).
The church today stands to learn something from this story in Ezekiel 37. As we look through this scripture, with an “open face” of revelation, the Lord will prepare every leader and believer for the greatest and final outbreak of revival that will precede His second coming.
The secrets of this on-coming revival have to do with the church. God is going to hold the church responsible for the timing of this revival. God is absolutely ready now. He is just waiting for the church to get her acts together, co-operate with Him as Ezekiel did, so that His breath (wind) will blow over the nations of the world and for graves of sin, darkness and death to be opened, and for the Lord’s army trapped within the nations of the world to be delivered and brought forth.
