The Coming Glory
In 1994, God poured out His power on what was then the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. As the years passed, there was a disinterest in all of this — too messy! Too out of control! To make things worse, our cultural agreement concerning right and wrong, sin and morality has been lost. It seems that the world is growing darker. But this may be the very time when the Holy Spirit will turn things around and start to burn brighter in our Churches for the Coming Glory.
We in North America have yet to experience the true baptism in the Spirit, because we tend to be too laid-back, as our culture teeters on the edge of collapse. Christians, when they become rich, increase their goods and are in need of nothing. They forsake God and become self-centered. The really love God, but they love their pleasures even more. Many have fallen away from church involvement — still believers, but only going through the motions; they don’t know what else to do.
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, … lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.” 2 Timothy 3: 1, 2, 4
Even the most doubtful people on earth must, in their honest moments, admit that something apocalyptic “shaking” is about to take place in the world. “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of My mouth”. Revelation 3: 15-16
At least that seems the common opinion among many modern day prophets. “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7
“... as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:12-13 So those who are prepared, should be accepting of the coming event. “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12
