Joel 2:28 (NKJV) “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, your young men shall see visions.

 

Notice what the Bible says in the prophetic verse above, that God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh. In the English translation of the Bible, it is clarified by the statement: “I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh”.

 

This is God’s agenda and decree in the last days. When God pours out His Spirit, He will begin a new form of life (divine life)! There will be a very different form of daily life that God is regenerating on this earth, namely a form of life that prioritizes love, forgiveness, sharing, taking sides with the survival of others and creating happiness for all creatures!

 

Psalms 104:30 (TLB) Then you send your Spirit, and new life is born to replenish all the living of the earth.

 

This is the expectation of all creatures as written in Romans 8:19. Very much different from the condition of the world today, which is in the power of the evil one (1 John 5:19). The world, which is under the control of the system of the evil one, is continuously experiencing degradation in various dimensions of life.

 

This happens through the existence of the rulers of the world, namely important, influential and impactful people who are controlled by the evil one. They always manifest greed, craftiness and selfishness which leads to various decisions that only aim to enrich themselves or their own group. They also have a damaging impact on the survival of many people, so that this world continues to experience decline and destruction.

 

This is the manifestation of the evil days and difficult times as foretold in the Bible. But after all this earth still belongs to the Father in heaven, and He still reigns and controls all things. His will is to restore this earth and He will work through the existence of His church.

 

The outpouring of the Spirit will begin as believers continue to press into His presence. Continue to experience the work of the Word and the Spirit that conditions their daily lives so that they function as temples of the living God. So that wherever they are, everyone who interacts with them is the same as interacting with the existence of God Himself! From the mouths of believers will continue to flow the words of eternal life.

 

Through our existence as His temple, there will be a work of the word and the Spirit that makes the flowing water of life within us spring up and grow stronger until it becomes like a great river (Ezekiel 47:1-12). And the outpouring of the Spirit, first of all will first take place in our being as His temple. Then it is through our existence that the flow of life (the outpouring of the Spirit) will touch the lives of everyone who interacts with our lives (all flesh).

 

Through the outpouring of the Spirit that occurs in these last days, our lives will be used by God to touch the lives of people who have important position and strategic influence. So that through the lives of those who begin to experience the touch of God’s reality, God’s sovereignty will be revealed to bring those who have position and influence for communities, cities and even nations so that they can connect with the agenda of the kingdom of heaven (Daniel 4:18-27).

 

This message will continue tomorrow.
