God has brought us to a place of divine dissatisfaction with a programmed church of religious efforts, producing much ineffectiveness to extend the Kingdom of God.
The need in Christendom is so great for a sovereign move of God. Walk around any city in the U.K. and witness the indulgences of society in High Street shops selling vast choices of everything from clothes, hair and beauty pampering treatments, jewellery and music to tatooing and a variety of hobbies and pastimes – some more healthy and acceptable than others. Note that Christianity is rarely at the forefront of any of it. Generally speaking, our High Streets and Internet Vending appeal to the excesses of a society that has no interest in Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world. Our land needs healing, 2 Chronicles 7:14 referring to this is unfulfilled.
Many traditional churches have used various “aids” to evangelise society and God has surely blessed in measure in the past. However, now we are on the verge of “fullness of times” and the church, in general, is not meeting the needs of a sin-sick society where “the man of sin” has reached his rampant fullness. Only a sovereign move of God will cause a “Paradigm Shift” to invade the nations with His divine presence and bring change.
This move of God will leave no room for man to glory in. The Holy Spirit of God will give Jesus pre-eminence. The King of Kings will take His rightful place and “every knee shall bow” in acknowledgement and recognition of who He is. Not all will choose Him, but every knee shall surely bow to fulfil scripture, Philippians 2:10-11, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
The invading Presence of God will be in the atmosphere so that man cannot help but breathe Him in and be fully aware of his choice to receive Him. The brooding Spirit of God will hover over the nations to convict people of sin and bring them to repentance, fulfilling the prophecy from 1937:
“It shall come as a breath…
And the breath shall bring the wind..
And the wind shall bring the rain…
And there shall be floods, and floods and floods,
And torrents and torrents and torrents.
Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty Oaks, swept by a hurricane.
Arms and legs will come down from heaven…
And there shall be no ebb.”
(Note …this prophecy can be read in the book “AND THERE SHALL BE NO EBB” by Arthur Burt, available on this website)
The breath of God is bringing the wind of change that will close the era of the Church’s fruitless attempts and activities of ineffectiveness. It is a New Day with “new wineskins.” God will supernaturally invade our planet with His Presence. The Body of Christ will operate and fully function with Jesus Christ as the Head, and no individual man will be allowed to take the credit of God’s glory. As people operate in the divine presence, “signs and wonders shall surely follow them that believe,” but people will no longer chase after them and will have a holy revulsion of taking any credit to themselves for God’s sovereign moving.
God has given us a divine dissatisfaction with ineffectiveness but He has not left us without hope. He has birthed in us a hunger for Himself and a vision – not for a “visitation” by Him but for “HABITATION”….oh glory!!
The Holy Spirit of God desires to inhabit my whole being – Divine Inhabitation! An awareness of my need of the Holy Spirit in my life produces a desperation and hunger for God that only His favour on my life can fulfil.
In John 16:8 Jesus speaks of the Comforter, the Holy Spirit of God, the Divine Agent on earth: “And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement.” Our desperate hearts cry in unity, – “Even so, come, Lord Jesus,” fulfil our vision for divine inhabitation! Let the breath of God bring the winds of change for the Paradigm Shift!
