It is abundantly clear to us, as believers, that we are drawing closer and closer to the return of our Savior. The world stage has been turned upside down.
Wrong is now right, and right is now wrong. Up is down and down is up. Friends have suddenly become foes, our children are being heavily influenced by new curriculums that teach them things we do not agree with or have a say in.
Our nation seems to be falling apart at the seams, the economy, supply chain issues, gas prices and a pandemic that has affected the entire world. The division is clear among people.
A line has been drawn in the sand. It is time now to be resolute in where YOU stand. There seems to be only two types of people: Those who serve God, and those who oppose the very idea of Him.
But now, the very people who have been opposed to the idea of a God—who created the universe and loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die for our sins and rise again so that we may have eternal life—are full of fear, dread, uncertainty and hopelessness. The tumult in the world has created an open door, a window of opportunity while there is still time, to open their hearts and minds to the reality of Christ and His saving grace now more than ever before.
Enter the days of usual people.
It is truly time to stand tall on your side of the sand. Stand up for the King of Kings now more than ever before. These are the final days before the great catching away of the church. I believe that God is going to use “usual people” to do unusual things, mighty things, supernatural things!
As the enemy turns up the heat and the warfare is dialed way up, God is going to raise up end time individuals who will be anointed mightily to reach the unreachable, the ones who are closed-minded or are not joiners of today’s mega churches or the ones who have been unmoved by the “soft gospel” that has been preached from gigantic pulpits—complete with water slide baptisms, and carnivals all dressed up and packaged as “church.”
It is time now for a fresh wind to blow upon God’s people. A wind so mighty that no church building can handle it, but gentle enough that it will draw the lost, the found, the young and the matured Christian alike. There is no more time for window dressing and entertainment. There is a great acceleration of end time events as foretold in the Bible. Time is being compressed.
There is a sense of urgency in our spirit man that tells us that the day of rapture is soon. We are spiritual beings having an earthly experience. When the Holy Spirit lives in us, He communicates with our spirit, teaching us, comforting us and preparing us for that glorious day of rapture. It is at the door, and while we do not know the day or hour, we are to occupy mightily, using our gifts until Jesus comes for His bride.
It is time we use what the Lord has given us and multiply it to bring family, friends, and strangers into His Kingdom. Usual people doing the unusual by the supernatural power of God. He will give us the words to say, He will tell us the right time to say it, and He will give us the strength, and boldness to occupy big!
No matter what you see happening on the world’s stage, just remember that this is the final act before God gets a glorious standing ovation. So, occupy and play your part with all of your body, mind and spirit. Do it for Him.
Do it for those you love and for those who have spitefully used you in this life. When that day comes when you meet the Lord in the air, great will be your reward!
John 16:33 reads, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
“And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, ‘Occupy till I come.’” (Luke 19:13).
