1. Rolling Thunder
By Ron McGatlin
The TV revivalists preach their hype. The kingdom teachers speak beautiful words. The worship leaders sing and play all night. The humdrum Sunday morning preachers please their seekers. They all build their castles and dream their dreams. The watchmen quietly watch, and the intercessors moan and groan. The prophets sell their wares of edification for the foolish.
Where are those who partake of the pure water from the throne of God? Who will speak truth in love and roar the true heart of God? Who will tell the people that they have strayed far from the place of holy union with God? Who has a voice untainted by greed and immorality that can roar the truth from heaven? Who will tell the people that your sins have separated you from your God, and your play has consumed you. Judgment is at the door, and the time is short. Godís love is jealous for you and will not leave you to sleep with your false and foolish gods.
The roar of unleashed power will roll across the land.
Where are the mighty kings with lightening in their hands?
Who are these children dressed in battle array?
Where are the mighty men to stand in the way?
Why are the foolish leaders blind and weak?
Why is there no one of truth and love to speak?
Is there one who will boldly stand?
And roar as the Lion from heaven across the land?
The Spirit of God will lift up a STANDARD, a pure and holy standard directly from the fresh, pure clear waters of the well of Christ Jesus, the Holy One. Without even a trace or whiff of manís corruption, the holy standard of God shall be lifted high among the people for all to see and be measured against.
Isa 59:19: Ö When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.
Then men will no longer measure themselves against themselves and find one better than another. For even the best are corrupt, and the worst are defiled beyond measure. Yet, comparing themselves among themselves, they are found acceptable in their own sight. Measuring corruption against corruption is utter foolishness and without value.
2 Cor 10:12: For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
The finest Christian religious institutions are tainted with corruption. Their pure waters from God are contaminated with manís impurities.
The secular world has made standards in the midst of vile corruption. Ungodly laws are enforced with force that is contaminated with filth. Governments have lost the way of God and are attempting to outlaw God and legalize evil of every sort.
Secular media proclaims evil as good, violence as fun, and sexual perversion and immorality as a right for all people. While ďChristianĒ media has made mockery of the purity and holiness of God by flowing streams of contaminated waters infested with greed and spiritual adultery.
The enemy is literally flooding our world, and nations are being swept away. Multitudes are ignorant of the reality of God and His kingdom. They have not yet seen or heard Godís true standard. When they see the standard of the pure and holy kingdom of God will they receive it or decide to reject it and continue in their prideful foolishness?
This is not a time to try to clean up our act and do better. This is a time to go all the way to the core of pure and holy Christ Jesusí life in us. Repentance for our worst sins will not fix our problem. This is a time for fall-on-your-face repentance for our whole lives. Repent for mixing our stuff in with the pure life stream from heaven.
God is not calling for more of what we have called good Christian living. He is not looking for more show-based conferences. At this time He is not reaching for more good preachers to maintain the flock.
God is calling for a multitude of mighty men and women of Christ washed in the blood, crucified with Christ, dressed in the pure white glory of Christ, without spot or blemish from the world. These will be men and women drinking from the well of the pure water of Christ Jesus and filled with the supernatural power and wisdom from heaven.
Holy sent ones speaking the oracles of God. Angels working with the sons of God thundering out words that impact like a lightning bolt from heaven. God is making His ministers a flame of fire to flow the supernatural powers of heaven to defeat the enemies of God and destroy every work of the devil.
Heb 1:7: And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire."
A New Government
Instead of a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, the new government will be of God, for God and by God, in and among the people. Beyond the cataclysmic and apocalyptic events of the near future, the government of God (the kingdom of God) will rule on earth.
The Spirit of Christ Jesus is beginning to manifest in the purified holy sons of God to cast down and overcome the enemy.
Sons of God arise to be made holy by drinking from the pure water of the well of Christ Jesus within. Receive the full measure of the Spirit of God to be made a flame of fire in the hand of God.
Rev 12:10-11: Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Let the dead bury the dead.
Luke 9:60: Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God."
Rev 22:11: "He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still."
James 2:13: For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
2. There is a Fresh Breakthrough of the "Prophetic Voice" in this Hour
By John Belt
God is raising up a new group of people that will release His voice, His thoughts, His life in this hour. He is also calling "whosoever will" to embrace the prophetic expression of the face of God at a new level, to bring forth His words without mixture, in purity.
The Prophetic Voice
Genesis 1:1-3 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
From the beginning all creation, everything seen came forth from the voice of God. The voice of God is the creative force behind everything we see before the hand of man touched it. The voice of the Lord is powerful. The voice of God is integral for our spiritual lives. For His life to flow in us we must hear and receive the voice of God. The sound of His voice sustains us and keeps our spiritual blood flowing.
Psalm 29:4-5 The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
His voice is health to our body. When He speaks His words to us there is life that is released within our spirit that enables us to walk in sync with His purposes. When we lay all the business aside to hear His voice we come into greater union with God and His ability is released within us. The prophetic voice is where we become a vessel to speak what He speaks. Moses wrote, That all God's people would be prophets. To be a prophet is to be someone who draws close to God, to desire His will and to speak His words. The name "prophet" or "prophetic" has become a mystified term in many circles and to many people, but it is the most basic of things to our spiritual lives. God does nothing without revealing it first to His prophets.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets.
So if we desire to be in on what God is doing, which we should, then all of us should desire to be a prophetic people that hear and speak His heart. If there is fear of "prophets" or being "prophetic" it may be because of abuse and misuse, but being close to God so you can to hear His voice is what we are all called to. "My sheep hear My voice and they follow Me." The least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than John the Baptist. John was a prophet in the wilderness. Jesus fulfilled the role of "The Prophet." If we are to be like Jesus we will be a prophetic people.
