In many ways, as evidenced by world events and natural phenomenon, the human race, being a created entity purposed to birth forth the fruits of God’s work, is heading for a great turn. We do not need anyone to remind us that this present and ongoing transition is from one epoch to another.
Due to the need there will be in the days ahead, God has been preparing, in the hidden places, His chosen vessels. They will be revealed to creation as living examples of, and able to instruct, His ways and His desires. Many names are given to denote this company of people. His highest purpose is not that they will lead, yet they will surely do so, but rather that they will serve His highest purpose in a very “different” way. As a result, genuine discipleship will be restored back to the Body with grace, wisdom, authority and power. The false concept of God’s love will be shattered and the discipline of the Heavenly Father will, yet again, be emphasized. The Kingly order will inaugurate this move so that His divine order will yet again produce holiness and the fear of God in the midst of a corrupt generation.
By kingly, I mean that the authority and power of Christ will become evidently consequential or confining with the introduction of the ministry of a “new priesthood” under His order. This order will be established before Him in the heavenlies and then sent to the earth to carry out His purposes. This will not be a scattered or glamorous movement; rather, it will be a small number of ordinary people who are divinely called and orchestrated by God Himself. They will (and are) merge together at the leading and empowering of the Holy Spirit with signs and wonders, as well as with many struggles and sorrows. We are now heading to this turn.
Some years back, I was caught up in heaven and God showed me the history of His creation, specifically that of man. In it, I was shown our age or time. These are things hard for me put into thoughts and words. I was so impressed with it and eager to keep the understanding of it as I saw His purpose for my own life, a truth and understanding I had been long seeking, that I asked him to give me a parable so I can remember it. He gave me this parable.
I saw a mighty mountain (the highest mountain of all times) covered by a snow cap. It was as though from the beginning of time, water from sky was frozen and sealed in this snow cap and then stopped from being able to circulate in the earth and be useful. Over time this accumulated the greatest body of water that has ever existed on earth, as if it had been reserved for a perfect time, our time. The Lord then showed me that in our time, He will raise up the temperature of earth 2-3 degrees. And this slight and unnoticeable change will induce the greatest change of all times. It will melt the snow cap. From a single drop will come a great river that runs into the sea of eternity and will fill up to its full measure and bring everything to a fulfillment, even the complete fulfillment of His plan for the age of man.
I also saw that when this great river rushed down the slope of the mountain to the plain, it will then run across the desert place. There will be many streams running along that will even try to compete with the river. But, all will die out. However, there will also be many streams that will flow into the great river and become one with it, one river.
The Lord revealed several things to me. Here are a few:
- The river is a new river with pure water and it will be the only river allowed to reach the sea of eternity from the time it starts to flow. All other streams have to flow into this river in order to make to the sea, or else, they will die out in the wilderness. ( I actually saw in a vision many rivers running to their ends, some were the mightiest rivers that have ever existed. )
When a stream heads into this new river, two things will happen to it. First, it will lost itself totally and become one with the great river. Second, it will have to change its direction. These streams can’t decide (for themselves) where to go, but must flow in the direction that had been set by God for the great river, which is to the sea of eternal life.
The many rivers I saw, whether those that were merged into the great river or those that died out in the desert, are representative of the many different streams of Christianity that have been flourishing, mainly in the western world. However, God will do a new thing. It will be as if it has nothing to do with the Christianity that existed before it.
We are heading into this great turn.
