(Isaiah 5:20 ESV) Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
(Isaiah 5:21 ESV) Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!
(Isaiah 5:22 ESV) Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink,
(Isaiah 5:23 ESV) who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right!
However, lest we feel like all is hopeless we need to remember that with the warning about the evil of the last days we also have the promise of a supernatural outpouring of the Person of the Holy Spirit in the last days.
(Joel 2:28 ESV) "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
(Joel 2:29 ESV) Even on the male and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit.
(Joel 2:30 ESV) "And I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
(Joel 2:31 ESV) The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.
A new wave of the Holy Spirit is flooding the Earth these days. We have the honor of living in one of the greatest outpouring of God's Spirit in the history of mankind. Great revelation is coming forth from the Throne of God to the Church through Word of God and true spiritual leaders of God.
(Ephesians 2:19 ESV) So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
(Ephesians 2:20 ESV) built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,
(Ephesians 2:21 ESV) in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
Amos 3:7-8 ESV "For the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets. (8) The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken; who can but prophesy?"
Ephesians 3:4-5 ESV When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, (5) which was not made known to the sons of men in other generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit.
This is training and equipping the Saints as no other time in history. Every believer that is hungry and thirsty for truth is receiving an anointing and impartation of simple and practical and deep knowledge about the things of the Father.
It is the Father’s longing to make every believer a true intercessor, a true spiritual warrior, and a man or woman of faith. A believer armed and ready to carry out the work of the Father effectively and in power. This will come about through the power anointing that the Father is pouring out in these last days. Remember this dear brother or sister in the Lord. You will either stand strong in the Lord and His Word as part of the solution to mankind, or you will fall faithless as a victim filled with excuses before man as part of the problem. God is not holding back from you, He is waiting on you. Having done all else....STAND!
