Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound the alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming, for it is at hand. Joel 2:1
Understanding the times
Biblical, prophetic history is being fulfilled rapidly in these days. It suggests we are rapidly heading towards a coming judgement upon the world. God is requiring us as individuals and the corporate church of Jesus Christ to rise up in a new measure of victory, power and authority.
To demonstrate that in the face of all satan will attempt to do, God through His people is able to do much more than we could ever think of ask. When it seems that things have gone too far, suddenly the Spirit of the Lord, will come and “raise up the standard.”
Not on man-made meetings or programmes, but on the in-gathering of true believers from all denominations who are standing on the prophetic truth of God’s word,
“not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as in the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25
What God requires
Now therefore says the Lord, turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm. Joel 2:12
Many churches are in slumber, unaware of the urgent days we are living in, turning over in their sleep. Yet there is an urgency for the “Clarion Call” to go forth in these significant times.
God is requiring believers to stand in the gap in repentance, to intercede for His mercy. To bring in a great harvest of souls from “All Nations”.
Here in the UK, unrighteous laws have broken all the ten commandments, giving access to demonic influences, through sin and ungodliness, allowing the spiritual gates of our cities and towns to be torn down.
Our responsibility to Israel
God is also desiring the church to fulfill this responsibility to Israel. The covenant He made with Abraham, has never been revoked, and as Gentiles we have been grafted in.
As we have shared in their spiritual inheritance, we are indebted to minister to them also in material things. Romans 15:27
A sobering thought.
For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, and these nations shall be utterly ruined, Isaiah 60:12.
Elijah took on his shoulders the prophetic responsibility for His people and His nation (James 5:17-18). Likewise the “Clarion Call” is calling us to adopt the Elijah spirit akin to His heart in these last days. To pray with God’s wisdom and prophetic understanding.
As darkness increases, and it surely will, God’s light will illuminate the darkness, pouring out His love, His blessing and His provision upon Israel, His chosen people and the Church.
God declares in Psalm 2:6,
Yet I have set My King (Jesus) on My Holy hill of Zion. Jesus is the Victor and all nations will come and worship at His feet.
And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. Blessed are those who do His commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter through the gates into the city. Rev.22:12-14
Amen and Amen!
