THE BEAST IS YET TO COME
One of the great quotes used in church today is – the best is yet to come.
I love this quote as it is full of Bible promises and hope for a better tomorrow.
However a gospel without the recognition and warning of what the Bible predicts is yet to come – can leave a generation in the grip of complacent Christianity.
I believe many in this generation are in danger of being too soft and without deep convictions concerning the will of the Lord.
WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS
The early church lived in the light of the near return of Jesus.
Every revival generation is passionate about the near return of the Lord.
GOD IS GATHERING ALL THINGS INTO OBEDIENCE TO HIMSELF
God is gathering His church unto Himself and into His glory.
He is also gathering every power and force – to come to Him for their day of reckoning.
COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE SEPARATE
The church is again identifying the defining values that set us apart from the way of the world.
THE PROPHETS ARE WARNING OF DIFFICULT DAYS
Part of the God gathering of all things will be bringing the nations together for His judgement.
Prior to that the wicked will unleash their fury on the righteous.
The warning to the church is clear. The beast is yet to come.
OUR BEST HAPPENS IN THE WORST OF DAYS
When the darkness increases – the light of God’s glory arises upon His people.
The beast of wickedness will be permitted to strut his stuff for a season – before the absolute judgement of God.
