Spiritual Awakening Coming Soon
Spiritual Awakening Coming Soon
Ezekiel 36:24-28 (NKJV) “For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your Mighty One.”
First, we all need to know what the PURPOSE of being Spirit filled or spiritually awakened really means. It does not mean we all babble in unknown gibberish. It does not mean we hop on the prosperity bandwagon and make lots of money. It does not mean we build pretty stained glass buildings and slap each other on the back telling each other how great we are. It does not mean our secular humanist communist governments will straighten up and follow Yahweh. A spiritual revival, a spiritual awakening, or being baptized in the Holy Spirit, means you now have the power to WALK IN YAHWEH’S STATUTES AND KEEP YAHWEH’S JUDGEMENTS AND DO HIS COMMANDMENTS!! Do you hear any greasy grace preachers preaching that doctrine? I didn’t think so.
Ezekiel 39:29 (NKJV) “And I will not hide My face from them anymore; for I shall have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,’ says Sovereign Yahweh.” By the end of the seven year tribulation, there will have been a Great Spiritual Awakening among Yahweh’s people. This sounds like a fulfillment of Joel 2. Let’s take another look.
Reading Joel 2:1-11 we see a great army. It is Yahweh’s army mopping up the worldly forces assembled for the coming Battle of Armageddon, verse 11, “Yahweh gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great; for strong is the One who executes His word. For the day of Yahweh is great and very terrible; who can endure it?” And what will usher in this Great Awakening? Repentance by Yahweh’s people, Joel 2:12-14 (NKJV) “Now, therefore,” says Yahweh, “Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” 13So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to Yahweh your Mighty One, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. 14Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him– a grain offering and a drink offering for Yahweh your Mighty One?”
Now listen to the Last Trumpet at Yahshua’s Advent 2.0, Joel 2:15-16 (NKJV) “Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; 16Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room.” Here the returning Bridegroom is our Redeemer Yahshua and the Bride is the five wise virgins who have prepared themselves for Yahshua’s Advent 2.0. And what is it that the five wise virgins have that the others do not? The Holy Spirit Who CAUSES THEM TO FOLLOW THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF YAHWEH, both the First and the Renewed Covenants. These two verses are a picture of the Yahshua Advent 2.0, the resurrection and the rapture, all wrapped up in one glorious gathering!
In verses 17-27, as Yahweh’s people repent of their sins, Yahweh, through His mighty army of the hosts of heaven, delivers, fills and blesses His people Israel. Notice this occurs AFTER the return of Yahshua and the resurrection and rapture of the saints, but BEFORE final Judgment Day, Joel 2:28-31 (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. 29And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. 30And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahweh.” This appears to be after the Feast of Trumpets on a soon coming Tishri 1, at Yahshua’s Advent 2.0, but before Judgment Day on that Yom Kippur. Ten days of the greatest spiritual awakening the earth has ever seen, right in the midst of the wrath of Yahweh being poured out on the wicked. This is the exact picture we also see in the Book of Revelation.
Joel 2:32 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As Yahweh has said, among the remnant whom Yahweh calls.” Notice that deliverance is not in Washington D.C., Berlin, Moscow, or Beijing. Is this not also a picture of Renewed Covenant grace? Acts 2:21 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.” Acts 15:11 (NKJV) “But we believe that through the grace of the Master Yahshua Messiah we shall be saved in the same manner as they.” Romans 5:9-11 (NKJV) “Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to Yahweh through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11And not only that, but we also rejoice in Yahweh through our Master Yahshua Messiah, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Romans 10:13 (NKJV) “For “whoever calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.””
It’s a pretty simple process, repent of our sins, get filled with His Holy Spirit, follow Yahweh and His Law. It’s not about invading demonic UFOs, demonic aliens or demonic zombies. It’s about following Yahweh and His Word, always has been, always will be. At least one of the coming wars will be a supernatural war like we’ve never seen before. I pray you all are ready for it.
