Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17:24 For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
Hebrews 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Romans 8:17-18 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
We herald the SOUND of His appearing, His magnificent coming, by the virtue that has been invested IN us, worked IN us, and heard IN us, by way of fire. Knowing that this sound which has been fired shall call forth the dead from out of their graves to prepare them for the mighty gathering at hand when all eyes shall see HIM as He begins to gather His own from the four winds (or four corners of the earth).
What a marvelous day as we await the SIGN of His coming. For as we now hear the trumpet's call we are made aware that He is sending forth this corporate man. This man that once walked in individual identities, in a more than little carnal nature, is now being swallowed up by The Son Of God and ready to appear at the appointed time as The Son Of Man. This man who is made up of many parts and being fitly joined is approaching the day to march out of tribulation. They are willing to lose their self‑life to see creation be no longer found running to the desert places, the secret hiding places, and inner circles, trying to find Christ. We now see kingdoms falling, the lights of denominations growing dim, stars (ministries) fail and fall from the heavens, the high places built by man. Having made these declarations let us look into the Spirit and the Word and be made alive by His will and purpose. As we break bread together let us keep in mind what a privileged people we are. We know that His purpose is for us to appear WITH Him in His glory, to be possessors (heirs) of His life, and by allowing the workings of HIS choosing to be made complete in us, we shall have our very natures changed. Glory to God! I see a company arising who are totally resilient to all opponents, a flame amply and strategically placed by our Father, a lightning crew if you please. I see a people with a spirit of buoyancy. What a dynamic time in which to be alive!
In parentheses you will find the Greek explanation of key words that I hope will encourage all to stay in this race, not looking back but pressing onward, for no suffering shall compare to the Glory that awaits you dear saints. A scripture in the Amplified Version that stays foremost in my heart at this time is I Cor. 2:13 - “AND WE ARE SETTING THESE TRUTHS FORTH IN WORDS NOT TAUGHT BY HUMAN WISDOM, BUT TAUGHT BY THE (HOLY) SPIRIT, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [to those who possess the (Holy) Spirit]. And of His angels (messenger - pastor - bearer of tidings) He is making them spirit (super human - A BLAST - a vital principle), and His ministers (public servant - a worshiper of God), a flame (to flash) of fire (lightning), sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation”. Glory to God!
Every trial, every testing, each suffering (to experience pain jointly - the same kind), is qualifying you to shine out of one part under heaven unto the other part under heaven for so shall the Son of man be in His day. Beloved this is His day! Just as we heard the sound of His coming when He was born the babe in Bethlehem, just as we heard His coming on the day of Pentecost, the sound as a mighty rushing wind, so shall we hear the SOUND as the SIGN (to signify) of His coming in the lightning. These flames of fire are bringing the message of good tidings. They are saying this day unto us is corporately born a Savior who will enter churches, groups, groaning men and women, and those without the SOUND of life who are dead in their graves of doctrines, occult teachings, and ordinances of men. They will proclaim to ALL men that ALL men shall know the Lord. Truly this coming of the Son of man in the clouds is with power and great glory. We cry aloud today to all who will hear His voice - come up hither in the Son realm, leave the elements of death and begin to bring changes that only the brightness of lightning will accomplish. It will illuminate your understanding through His presence and the brightness of His appearing. It resurrects the dead. It defeats every illness from the ability to control vessels as that light shines upon them. It causes all altercations to cease over doctrines and scriptures, and tears down every spirit of competition. Praise His Holy Name! This coming will take you into the highest point of the
realm, into the city of the living God, and to the heavenly
. With the Son of Man messengers will journey the spirits of just men made perfect. This lightning bolt reaches from the heavens to the earth and the entire ekklesia join together in bringing a coming greater than pentecost, latter rain, sonship, or kingdom truth. This coming brings HIM in the body that He chose to be fired, baked, released, ordained, and sent forth in. This is the hour to hear Him where He is. His coming will never be duplicated nor counterfeited for each servant must stand before the judgment seat of Christ to be made ready to become super human - a blast - a flame of fire - a flash of lightning. So now let us rejoice that we have been chosen to know Him in His fullness. Let us yield our lives unto Him that He may finish so great a work that has been begun in this the first fruit company.
Philippians 1:11 (Amplified) May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and right doing) which come through Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, to the honor and praise of God - THAT HIS GLORY MAY BE BOTH MANIFESTED AND RECOGNIZED.
( This poem was given here as I write )
Going through the fire, You become the flame;
In losing your life, You'll bear His nature, His name;
In giving your all, You'll see a whole man,
Body - Spirit - and Soul, That is living in Him.
So rise up and conquer, The sign we now see,
Trumpets now sound His coming, In us corporately;
From the east to the west, This lightning shall strike,
Removing all death, Bringing forth His new life.
My very hope, desire, purpose, and determination is that His Glory may both be manifested and recognized in you. Now, to all who await this manifestation may I say that qualification is essential so that He can be recognized in you. Lightning is seen as it hits from heaven to earth and it may ignite a sound of thunder or roaring. Visualize a company of messengers descending from the heavens to the earth bringing His very presence and His Life to a realm of earth bound people. Then imagine the BLAST it will cause as the earth receives so great a witness. Often times people roar as their earth quakes and shakes, but in due season they will rejoice knowing that they have cried "come quickly Lord Jesus." As a result, He heard their cry and has come to gather them unto Himself.
In Rev. the 10th chapter please read from verse 8 through 11. His process of making His angels to BECOME is an explicit one. We are in the period of the seventh day and in the days of the voice (tone - sound) of this seventh angel (messenger) and we are hearing that the mystery is finished. We hear from the heavenly realm the voice that tells us to take the book (scroll) and to eat it. We are forewarned that it will make our belly (cavity - heart) bitter, but it shall be sweet as honey in our mouth (language). In our self‑man it is bitter to eat the book that has been handed to us in this great day. Still, our language speaks only the goodness of the Lord, for He is making each, who is called according to His purpose, to be qualified to prophesy (preach) again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings. Praise God! With unparalleled ability you will combine His Spirit and Word to meet any and every occasion. Every suffering, trial, and testing will be worth it all as a completed Son company who were made flames of fire, or flash of lightning, appear with HIM.
Jeremiah said in Jer. 15:16 - Thy words were found and I did eat them and Thy word was joy and rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by Thy name O Lord God of Hosts.
"So unto thee I say dear body of the Lord, arise and shine for thy light has come and many shall see the brightness of thine appearing and spring forth out of their darkness into my marvelous light, for no longer shall ye be hidden in a corner bearing shame for the sufferings that I have submitted thee unto. But now ye shall ascend with Me and descend with Me. Ye shall lament no more but rejoice and sing praises unto Me as I complete in thee all that I have spoken, so that ye may bring forth those who have been given to thee. For as I AM so shall ye be in the world. For those who shall look for me they shall find me for lo I come in the volume of the book and I bring my reward with me."
