The Father is moving, (as He always has) and there is a fresh outpouring of His Holy Spirit upon the earth. If has always been in the heart and will of the Father to do this. In humanism, man tries to elevate himself equal to or above God. There is more humanism within the church than we would like to acknowledge. As an example take the events of Matthew chapter 24 on the “End times.” Somehow 1/2 of the church believes that we control these events and that we can usher them in sooner then God intended. The other 1/2 of the church thinks that if they fast, pray, and sing enough these terrible end times events will be by-passed and God will just come down and usher in the New Kingdom.
However, it needs to be stated that the last move of God, like the first move of God doesn’t need a man to lead it or control it. Contrary to popular belief, (sorry musicians), God doesn’t need a band to sing or dance His next move and to start the end times. For those who have the mega ministries I hate to be the one to tell you but God doesn’t need a building to corral in His next move nor does He need a TV station to broadcast it. For those who pray and intercede for the end times I hate to be bearer of this news but God doesn’t need intercessors to pray in His next move and what He will do. Why would we think that if we don’t pray, God will not come back and establish His kingdom? (I know that this is not the only thing people pray about). For the screamers, God doesn’t need a microphone to get His message across. For those who are writing books on end times it would be well to remember that the Father doesn’t need a PR program to promote or defend His last move on this earth, and He does not need authors to tell Him what He will do and when He will do it. For you prosperity preachers, you need to know that God does not need to take up an offering or sow a seed to make His move a reality. For the name it claim it folks you need to know that God’s move cannot be manipulated or owned.
Although prayer, intercession, praise, music, preaching, buildings, tithes, offerings, and media have their place for ministry, they cannot be used to begin, continue, or end the move of God and the schedule of end times. The great last move of God has already begun. It is moving in the heart, the spirit, and the secret places of men and women around the world. There is a generation who have been faithful in small things, they are broken and poured out, and have hid themselves in the cave of Adullam, anchored in faith upon the rock. An army, who were discouraged, in debt, defeated, and depressed and would be classified as misfits and malcontents have hidden in a cave until they became a mighty army of our Lord’s glorified sons. These are not the heroes or superstars. These are no names and no faces. A few mighty men scattered around thinking they were alone, crying out, “Lord, are there others?” God has been moving knitting these men together in relationship and His love.
No, we do not need the things listed above for God to do His thing which was always in His heart to do. We just need to position ourselves in partnership with Him so that we can be a part of this move. Because all of us will either be a part of the problem with this world or we will be in partnership with the move of God as He brings the solution, (New Heaven/New Earth).
