DESCRIPTION

Several years ago – in 2007 – I did a podcast on the material contained herein. A prophecy!

We are NOT yet in the vertex of the end times; However, we are in the first stages of the End Times.
What to LOOK FOR from religious leaders and from governments and what TO DO in these days in which we live.
Just think about these recent attacks against Christians:

Students discriminated against in public schools by administrators and teachers

Catholic nuns & Christian businesses targeted for refusing ObamaCare coverage

Christmas cards and wrappings – and carols – banned for Veterans by Obama VA

AN END TIME KEY TODAY:
PERSECUTION IS COMING
THE FIRST STAGES

When you hear of wars and disturbances, don’t be terrified, for these things must happen first, but the end won’t come immediately. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, and plagues in various places. There will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.  [Luke 21:11]

But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you up to synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for my name’s sake.  [Luke 21:12]

_____________


EDITOR’S NOTE
:

Synagogues here used refers to religious houses of worship, which can include churches. In other words, religious (but NOT born-again) so-called Christians persecuting REAL Christians.  A sign to watch for – an End Time KEY – will be the religious establishment persecuting the Body of Messiah. This does not, however, exclude non-believersother anti-Christian groups from the persecution, also. The thing to realize is that there will be persecution and arrests done … “for my name’s sake.” People will think they are doing God a favor, but maybe the real reason is that they have a form of Godliness, but hate and deny the REAL power tof God

_____________

The original word for fearful sights in verse 11 above is from the Greek phobetron, (pronounced fob’-ay-tron) which means terrors. This rare word phobêthra is only used here in the New Testament. It is from phobeô, to frighten, and occurs only in the plural as here.

To scope, or micro focus, on this segment (verses 11 and 12) of a larger range of scripture dealing with the end times (Luke 21) we can see clearly that BEFORE the terrors and great signs from heaven will come a period of time where many of God’s people will be arraigned, detained, or arrested to appear in either synagogues or prisons . . . even before presidents, kings, and rulers of nations for a testimony.

The advance by ISIS Hell-bent on world Islamic domination should NOT be a surprise to anyone who knows that the Quran teaches Muslims to murder Jews and Christians. A quick, but knowledgeable, study of Islam and Its Teachings will show you the foolishness of Islam.

We can see that Christians (at least in the Western world) are NOT at the vertex of the end times yet because of what Jesus taught in verse 12. However, in Islamic countries and in Africa today Christians are being murdered, beheaded, crucified and churches are being burned. One of the Bishops I ordained into the ministry informed me three days ago that only 10 miles from his church and residence a village which is in his mission area was attacked by Muslims: the church was burned and many Christians were killed (with only a few escaped.)

Just this morning I received another request of prayer for Christian missionaries in Qaraqosh where ISIS told children to deny Christ and follow Islam. Every one of the children did NOT deny Yeshua (Jesus) and were murdered by the Muslims.

What should speak to us TODAY, however, is that in the (probably) not too distant future, leaders of nations (maybe both Islamic and Western nations), will have Christians incarcerated. The rise of ISIS terrorism and beheadings is not being addressed accurately in the media. It is an Islamic operation. If a person claims to be a Muslim, then they should read the Quran, which commands that Christians and Jews be murdered.

Right now, in the Western world, governments are imposing fines and also imprisonment on pastors for speaking out against things such as alternative (or, sinful) life styles.

When you read carefully the teachings I recommend at the bottom of this Ezine, you will see that we are in the first stages of the Last Days. However, it is important to recognize “waymarks” along the pathway, and to be prepared.

One of the most extraordinary documents in human history—the Bill of Rights — has come to an end under President Barack Obama. Derived from sacred principles of natural law, the Bill of Rights came to a sudden and catastrophic end when the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act (2012 NDAA Sec. 1021), which grants the U.S. military the “legal” right to conduct secret kidnappings of U.S. Citizens.

Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense.  The information, called in the wording  “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.

This is all conducted completely outside the protection of law, with no jury, no trial, no legal representation and not even any requirement that the government produce evidence against the accused. It is a system of outright government tyranny against the American people, and it effectively nullifies the Bill of Rights. 

Just a FEW things to contemplate:

California churches forced by state to provide abortion coverage

Legal demand to obtain copies of pastor’s sermons (Houston lesbian mayor)

Systemic persecution of Christians by Muslims not showed by mainstream media

Messiah Jesus, speaking to His disciples in verse 12 concerning their being brought before kings and leaders, was partly referring to the great persecutions they would experience by the Romans in the early church era; however, in the grand scope of end time prophecy He was giving instructions as to what would happen before He returns to establish His Kingdom.  [See Luke 21:5-36]

What this microcosm of scripture shows us in verse 12 . . . “But BEFORE all these things” . . . is that we need to, as my blessed mother used to say, “Make hay while the sun shines!” I admonish you as an elder brother in Messiah Jesus, do whatever the Holy Spirit is leading you to do.

Seize the day!

Get rid of the weights that are holding you back from doing God’s will.

Buy up the time. Take advantage of every IDEA, RESOURCE, and OPPORTUNITY you have to reach people, and the world, for Messiah Jesus!

Satan hates anointed MONEY, anointed PEOPLE, and anointed TIME. Do NOT let people steal YOU, your MONEY, or your TIME. Spend time with God in the Word and prayer . . . listen to what He is telling you. Make the moves you need to on the chess board of life so that the Master may say of you one day: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Now, let me give you some recommendations. Here are four books to help you know exactly what’s going on and HOW to STRATEGIZE and WIN.

►►► Learn the material, teach it to others … share the victory.

THE ROLE OF APOSTOLIC MINISTRY TODAY

INTRO / MUSIC

There are several TYPES of evangelical churches today, but they can be classified usually into one or more of three (3) groups:

INTERPRETIVE – These churches believe that Jesus is Lord.

DEDUCTIVE – Based on inference of scripture, these churches are further divided into sub-groups. For example, those who believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues, operation of the gifts of the Spirit . . . and those who do not.

CULTURAL – These churches appeal to the styles and movements of the current day and may be further divided into two (2) groups: traditional and seeker sensitive.

Apostle Handley’s book on Militant Church History (written in 1973) is right on track today and lists the seven (7) stages of church history: past and prophetic. Just a cursory review of recent decades, however, shows something as to the movement of the Holy Spirit (with some aberrations of men).

In the late 1960s and into the 1970s, we had the “hippy” movement.

In the 1980s we had the coming of age of the burgeoning “baby boomers.”

In the 1990s we had the “Me” (the selfish) generation, with examples such as “Seinfeld.”

Today, we are in the infant stages of the “rupture” of society … and at the same time, the infant stages of the apostolic church. By the “rupture” of society I am talking about the appearance of militant Islamic fundamentalism.

MUSIC

We hear lots of commentary by news media outlets saying that Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. This is NOT correct. Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world.

Demographics and surveys are drawn from largely the traditional and denominational churches. The statistics do NOT account for the fact that much of exploding church growth occurs in the non-traditonal, non-mainline, non-denominational churches: much in house churches and the underground church … SUCH AS IN CHINA!

However, there IS now a large growth of Islam. Why? Because people want to identify themselves with . . . to belong to or be part of . . . a culture.

It is TIME for a NEW CHURCH: one that is drawn by the Spirit to people and one to which people are drawn by the Spirit! The NEW church understands the current culture, the people and their styles. The following statistics are representative of this NEW church:

  • 43% of the people were born between 1927 and 1945
  • 37% of the people were born between 1946 and 1964
  • 16% of the people were born between 1965 and 1983
  • 4% of the people were born between 1984 and 2006

We must reach this youngest group! If you haven’t already studied about this, go to www.realmiracles.com and in the upper right of any page “Search” for “The Greatest Outreach.” Also, go to the Archives of The Apostles Group and search for: “Trends, Times, and Tongues.” [August 28, 2004]

The NEW APOSTOLIC church will reach people in their styles and cultures with anointed music. People will join a church when they SEE people EXCITED about their faith. Acts 15:15-18 tells us:

“This agrees with the words of the prophets. As it is written, ‘After these things I will return. I will again build the tent (tabernacle) of David, which has fallen. I will again build its ruins. I will set it up, That the rest of men may seek after the Lord; All the Gentiles who are called by my name, Says the Lord, who does all these things. All his works are known to God from eternity.”

This scripture is referring to Amos 9:11 foretelling the rebuilding of the dynasty of David through Messiah who would come. However, it has a multiple fulfillment, also, in the building of the Kingdom of God (even before the 1,000 year Messianic Kingdom on earth) by the organic spiritual growth of the resurrected Messiah’s Body. The Messianic synagogues and churches today who operate in the apostolic and prophetic functions … and who abound with the high praises of God … are creating NEW birthings of the Spirit and forging alliances of ministry purposes: Individual birthings of the Spirit through repentance and believing the Good News … and corporate birthings of NEW synagogues and churches, whether they meet in offices, buildings, houses, the desert, or forests.

What was the Tabernacle of David like? It was NOT like Solomon’s Temple, with all its wealth and gold. The Tabernacle of David was a “make-shift” tent where the praises of God resounded. Even King David, when he was returning with the Ark of the Covenant was dancing and praising God publicly (and almost nude)!

MUSIC

The NEW APOSTOLIC church will have prophetic dancers: even incorporating new cultural themes in music.

The NEW APOSTOLIC church will have a NEW BREED who will want to join and participate in MIRACLES: people who want to be instruments through whom the Holy Spirit will flow to bring healing to sinful, bruised humanity. A brother in my area recently took a campus survey at one of California’s major universities. In that survey the students were asked the question: “What will it take to get you into church?” The majorityof the university students being surveyed answered: “We want to SEE God’s miracles and the supernatural.”

Have you ever noticed that the churches and people who say “wanting to see miracles” is wrong are the ones who are NOT experiencing MIRACLES? Jesus never blasted people for wanting to see or experience MIRACLES. He blasted them because they just wanted to take part in eating the bread that was multiplied.

Yeshua answered them, “Most certainly I tell you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled.” [John 6:26]

During 1950-1960 several great healing ministries were raised up by God. Many people were saved as a result. Then in the period from 1960 to 1970 there was great emphasis on pastoring to care for the thousands of new converts. Then, from 1980 to 1990 there was great emphasis on teaching. Around 1990 many new prophetic ministries were raised up, along with praise and worship. Now, we are in the INFANT STAGES of the NEW APOSTOLIC CHURCH.

MUSIC

The PROPHETIC brings things to pass in the Spirit. It opens up new vistas and causes them to happen.

The APOSTOLIC takes the different forms of ministry and unites them into a harmonious unit.

The APOSTLE recognizes that the fivefold ministries are NOT ministries necessarily of accuracy, but rather of function to bring about a cohesive objective: the formation of the Tabernacle of David and the growth and dominion of the Kingdom of God. The apostle of the NEW CHURCH should probably have experience in all functions: not just the apostolic, but also as prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher.

It was not too long ago, before the fall of Communism, that Albania was known as the hardest Communist country. Just to mention the name “God” would result in a jail or prison sentence. There was a Muslim man who was about to die of radiation contact. A Christian brother told him about Jesus and His healing power, then laid hands on him and prayed for him. The man went to the hospital to be checked again and they found he was completely healed.

The doctor asked him, “How did this happen?” The man said, “A man told me about Jesus, and that He could heal me; the man laid his hands on me and prayed for me in Jesus’ name . . . and I am healed!” Then the doctor, in simple belief and scientific query, asked the man who had been healed: “Would that happen to the other people here in this hospital?” The man something like, “I think so.” So, the doctor asked him to go around and pray for the people in Jesus’ name and lay hands on them. The hospital was emptied.

About that time, there was a NEW BREED of young people who simply believed God and went to the hospitals praying for the sick in Jesus’ name. Hospitals were actually closed down because of the number of people who were healed.

The NEW BREED is waiting for you . . . and for the NEW APOSTOLIC CHURCH!

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.
