A NEW DAY FOR THE CHURCH;
And my speech and my preaching were not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power (1 Corinthians 2:4).
A lot is happening, and much more is about to happen, through the Church of Jesus Christ. We’re getting closer to the return of the Master, and we’re entering into a new phase of the Church’s ministry in the earth; a greater dimension of the glory of God in the earth beyond what the Church has known.
There’s a release of mighty angels of God into the earth. This is a class of angels that haven’t been in the earth before. They’ve been released into the earth for the work in these last days because the time is short.
The world is about to witness greater signs and wonders, because of the angelic manifestations and the angelic support that God’s people would experience in these latter days. Be expectant and ready. It’s a new phase altogether, and by revelation, God is letting us know the season we’re now in.
It’s like what happened in Bible days. In Joel 2:28, the Lord had said, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy….” Years after, this prophecy came to pass, but the people didn’t know. They received the outpouring of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost, but they didn’t know what was going on. But Peter explained it to them as he was inspired (Acts 2:13-16).
Likewise, by the inspiration of the Spirit, we know that the Church has entered into a new phase of the supernatural, a new phase in the move of the Spirit. In this new phase, we’re witnessing the demonstration of the Spirit and of power as read in our theme verse.
Be committed, therefore, to the spread of the Gospel like never before. Be afire and influential for the Gospel; let it be all that matters to you, and you’ll see the manifestations of the supernatural in your life and in all that concerns you.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for granting me insight into the workings of your Spirit in our day. The knowledge of your Word has increased, alongside angelic ministrations in our behalf, as we urgently and fearlessly proclaim the Gospel around the world. I’m committed to the Gospel and its spread around the world, by the power of your Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.
Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
