The LAST-DAY CHURCH



I believe God´s vision for His last-day church is based on His revealed Word-because the Bible clearly outlines what the church of Jesus Christ will be like just prior to His coming.


The church in America is far from what God envisioned it to be. For the most part, entire denominations today operate without the Holy Spirit. They are devoid of the presence of Jesus and bankrupt of all spiritual gifts. They practice a form of religion without any power, conviction or saving message. They are cozy with the world and are more political than spiritual. They appease sin, wink at divorce and ridicule the supernatural, while tossing aside all teaching about heaven, hell, repentance and judgment.


The New Testament church made devils tremble! It drove legions of demons into the abyss, prayed prison doors open, made rulers cringe in fear. Those early believers had such faith and power that cripples rose up leaping and beggars became evangelists. They believed in the supernatural and they opened blind eyes, unstopped deaf ears and healed all manner of diseases. 
They even raised the dead!


I am not saying God´s last-day church will be a repeat or copy of the first-century church. No-I am saying it will be even greater than that! It will be mightier, stronger, with an ever greater revelation of Jesus. It will have greater unction from the Spirit than ever-greater even than at Pentecost! 
God always saves His best wine for last!


The prophet Daniel confirms this. He said that certain prophetic truths were locked up, only to be revealed in the last days: "For the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. . . .
And none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand" (Daniel 12:9-10).


Today the Holy Spirit is revealing these things to spiritual, discerning saints! "It is written: `Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.´ But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God" (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

The Lord is preparing a powerful yet humble army of shepherds after His own heart and also a remnant congregation of hungry sheep who have turned away from the deadness and sin of the modern church. The scene is being set for that church which will be hot, not lukewarm-and it will rock the very foundations of hell.

No power on earth will be able to ignore or despise it!

Praise God Sister Trudy! It's time for the church to realize that we can't make it in ourselves or by our strength we need the anointing and the strength of the Holy Spirit So let the church stir up the gifts of the Spirit and go be witness of Christ to the world!

Amen, Brother James. Either way, we serve God or we don't. Nothing in between.

Today I was being still with the Lord and I heard these exact words spoken by the Holy Spirit.

" I saved my BEST WINE for LAST"

He reminded me of a dream last year about him carrying wine bottles through an airport and was getting ready to pour forth the wine bottles.

Thank God, a FEAST with the best wine is awaiting us, which will be served at the GLORIOUS WEDDING FEAST. WHAT A DAY THAT WILL BE!
Thank you for your comments.
