This message is a continuation of yesterday’s message.
We are talking about the outpouring of the Spirit that God will do in these last days on all flesh.
Daniel 4:34-37 (NKJV) And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever: for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand or say to Him, “What have You done?” At the same time my reason returned to me, and for the glory of my kingdom, my honor and splendor returned to me. My counselors and nobles resorted to me, I was restored to my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added to me. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.
From the throne room, the Spirit will be poured out upon His church, and it is through the existence of His church that all flesh will experience the life of the Spirit that touches their lives so that their eyes will be opened to the reality of the living and powerful God.
This is the purpose of the outpouring of the Spirit in the last days:
1. The purpose of the outpouring of the Spirit is to condition people to cry out to God and bring them to see the reality of the living God.
God will raise up the “Daniels” to deliver divine messages to the leaders of the land, thus opening the eyes of their hearts to see the reality of God and make decisions to be able to start connecting with the reality of God.
The outpouring of the Spirit is not at all about converting people to Christianity. But it aims to condition people who meet and experience God’s reality by the outpouring of the Spirit, to be able to regain the awareness of spiritual things and receive thoughts that come from God. Useful and constructive things like this are what they should pursue, rather than simply seeking personal pleasure or success. From the awareness of spiritual things, they will begin to cry out to God.
Psalms 145:18 (NKJV) The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.
Joel 2:28-32 (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. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.
Romans 10:12-13 (NKJV) For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Anyone who is willing to open his heart and call on God’s name will receive help from God, no matter what his background and social status.
I believe that in the future, there will be many leaders of the country who experience like Nebuchadnezzar did: Through the touch of God or the outpouring of the Spirit they experience, they will turn to God and use every position, power they have to make various strategic policies that bring justice and well-being for many.
This message will continue tomorrow.
