Consider the events that have taken place these last several years, beginning with the 2014-2015 Blood Red Moon Tetrarch to the fulfillment of the sign of Virgo given in Revelation 12, to strange sounds in the atmosphere and the increase of earthquakes striking in various places, to birds falling from the sky and fish dying by the thousands. Then there is the movement of the nations from Turkey entering into the Islamic race for a caliphate to the turmoil in Syria, the major players of Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog coming together – Russia, Iran, and Turkey. The rise of Christian persecution has risen to epic levels, from the slaughter by ISIS to the repression by China and North Korea, persecution is even rearing its head in the nations of the west. The spirit of Antichrist is at work but, what is God doing? First Jesus warned us these things would all be happening toward the end –
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” – Matt. 24:4-24
Lawlessness is certainly abounding and the love of many in the church has certainly grown cold as few seem to care about women or homosexual pastors, or Christians supporting abortion or about teaching such truths as the Feasts of the Lord and harvests of the Lord.
The Bible has much to say about harvests, both physical and spiritual. The seven Feasts of the Lord are centered around them and James gives us a truth about the final harvest –
“Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.” – James 5:7-8
Along with the other end-time signs it appears as if the ‘gospel being preached to the end of the earth’ Jesus promised and the ‘latter rain’ James promised may be happening.
This is just one event in which the Holy Spirit is being poured out, it is also happening in China, India, Iran and other places as well.
As we see the spirit of Antichrist moving we also see God’s Holy Spirit being poured out on all flesh as Jesus promised. Be encouraged and pray that the rain will fall in your life as well.
