A massive shift is coming that will move us from survival to fulfillment. The Church is hanging on, but a shift is coming that will cause her to fulfill her mandate. Israel is struggling against Anti-Semitism, but a shift is coming and she will walk in her destiny. You as an individual may be standing against an anti-Christ culture, but a shift is coming for you to receive anointing.
Whether in the Church, in redeemed Israel, or in you; God is looking for ministry. This is it.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. To proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind. To set the oppressed free and to proclaim the year of God’s favor.” (Luke 4:18,19)
These were the words of – God’s prophet Isaiah.
These were the words of – God’s Son, Jesus.
These are the words of – God’s victorious Church.
These will be the words of – redeemed Israel.
These should be your words.
Following His resurrection, Jesus did two amazing things: 1. He rose, high above the heavens to fill the universe and 2. He gave ministry gifts to men. (Ephesians 4:9)
After conquering death, Jesus received all authority. (Matthew 28:30, Philippians 2:10) With that victory He gave anointing to people for the purpose of ministry.
The New Testament word until informs us that a shift is coming. Until is a time word. It signifies a line of demarcation. It means that an old format will shift and change when the time is right. Something new is coming.
One until points to Israel’s revival, another to fullness in the Church and still another to Christ’s power for individuals.
Concerning Israel, “hardness in part has come to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. Then all of Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:25)
The word until signifies that a shift is coming for Israel. The nation will be supernaturally and instantaneously converted to Christ. Then Jewish evangelists will go to the nations leading multitudes to Christ with the Word of God and powerful miracles.
Here are eight end-time promises that God has for the Jews. Four have been partially fulfilled within the last fifty years. Here they are.
1. Ownership of their land (Ezekial 20:42)
2. Regathering of their people (Isaiah 11:12; Zephaniah 3:20)
3. Financial fortunes restored (Zephaniah 2:7, 3:20: Joel 3:1)
4. Intercessors praying for them (Isaiah 62:6)
5. National revival through Jesus (Isaiah 45:17)
(Zechariah 12:10, Romans 11:25,26)
6. God’s Glory coming upon them (Romans 9:5; Isaiah 60:1,2)
7. Praise and honor from the nations (Zephaniah 3:19) (Isaiah 60:15; 62:2)
8. Judgment on nations that abused them (Joel 3:1-3)
It is not yet time for the great last days’ war against Israel. God is shielding her.
“On that day the Lord will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord going before them.” “They will consume all the surrounding peoples, but Jerusalem will remain intact.” (Zechariah 12:6,8)
No matter how much of Israel’s land is given away, eventually, it will extend from the Nile River to the Euphrates River. (Genesis 15:18) This is God’s promise. While God is shielding Israel and extending her land, revival will come.
“On that day a fountain will be open to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity.” (Zechariah 12:10;13:1)
There is a fountain that washes away the sins of Jews and Gentiles. It is the blood of Jesus. Israel will shift from just surviving to receiving God’s promises and fulfilling her awesome destiny.
Israel’s spiritual partner, the Church has also been in survival mode. Nations struggle under the anti-Christ spirit and the church in those nations is weak. The United States is the only nation that has a strong Christian voice in politics and in society. This will shift. An end-time anointing is coming and the Church will lead the nations and fulfill her mandate.
It will happen when the Church rises to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Christ gave Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers,
“Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
The word until signifies, that a powerful shift is coming to the Church. She will find faith, unity, maturity and the powerful, awesome, fullness of Christ.
A desperate shift is needed for many believers and it is coming.
Paul says, “I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ be formed in you.” (Galatians 4:19)
Paul spoke of Christ’s power, coming to believers. The wisdom character, and powerful anointing of Christ, are God’s plan for people. The word until, points to that shift. Intercessors and others will travail and God will release His authority on His saints.
There is a massive problem. Many believers have become disillusioned and derailed. Christians hurt Christians and too many are wounded. A wounded soldier cannot fulfill his destiny. He dwells on his pain and goes numb at the thought of ministry.
A shift is coming. The church cannot fulfill her destiny unless individuals fulfill theirs. Those who have fallen or been knocked from the plan of God must rise again. Millions of gifted men and women will reenlist.
This shift will come to Israel, the Church, and to you but it requires a miracle. Seek the Lord with all of your heart and boldly speak the prophesies of the Lord over your life and over the ones that you love. Draw near to the Lord and He will draw near to you. A Ω
