Jesus is coming soon!
How often have we heard this said. It’s easy to think.. “yes, he’s been saying that for 2,000 years.. what is SOON anyway, and what does it mean that he is coming?”
These are good questions.
What I can say, is that his prophets are weeping…Scripture says that “God does nothing without revealing it to his servants the prophets.” You may not believe there are prophets anymore. Who are these people anyway? They are those who are wired to know what God is feeling and what is happening. Sometimes we don’t even understand why we feel a certain way, but God speaks to us of his plans and we don’t even recognize it sometimes.
I had a dream last night and all I remember is saying, “Inside, I can just feel weeping all of the time. I could weep at any moment I will let it out.” I have heard other intercessor friends talking about weeping coming over them.
So, this morning, I sat down in my chair and out of my mouth began to flow the song lyrics, “Spirit of wisdom open my eyes. Spirit of revelation, open my eyes.” I felt the tears come again and I saw what it would look like to face Jesus, not just in a brief thought, but if he came right near me, face to face and looked at me. Oh how his purity would penetrate my soul! I can’t help it…I just want to weep. Even now it is stirring in my chest and my eyes are close to tears.
This is how I know, Jesus is coming soon. I know he will encounter all in one way or another. He is coming to prepare a pure and spotless bride. I am weeping and God is revealing the places in my heart that are corrupt, that were self-centered. The places where I had other cobwebs that blocked pure love. You may have them too. We all have them. They block the radiance of Christ from shining in us and through us. I have had moments of radiance and I know the feeling of it. It is bliss. It is pure love. It includes utter peace and comes with an incredible amount of authority and revelation. I’ve had a taste of it hear and there, but God wants us to walk in more, so we can light up the world with his love.
Jesus is coming. His Kingdom is at hand.
Because he wants to reach the world and he’s going to make us “reflective” and “inspiring”. He’s going to breathe through us and winds of change will come and the culture will change. Yes. The culture will change. Knowledge of God will be everywhere.
I don’t despair in hopelessness about the state of this country, because for years, God has been showing me what will come as a result of this wave of destruction we are seeing all over the land. There will be a turnaround in the White House. It will again be a “white” pure house. Revival, personal revival, is coming to this land. The nation will be singing one song of adoration to the King of Kings. All will know him. “Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the GLORY of the Father.”
I know Jesus is near because I feel the conviction in my heart to just weep. There is nothing much to say, but to weep, because he is so close. When holiness comes that close, we all will weep.
It feels good to weep. It is like God is washing my soul clean and debris is floating away with it.
Do you remember old teachings that real men don’t weep, or that it’s weak to cry?
That is the voice of pride speaking. How deeply rooted it goes into our soul, masking itself as protection, but it is destruction. God redeems through water, sometimes a few drops at a time. He does it with great love and great wisdom… through knowledge of his kindness.
