Criteria For The Last Move Of God In His Church
In our last post we spoke on the significance of the Man Child, today, what I want to do is show us what we need to do to transit from ‘The Woman’ (of Revelation Chapter 12) to the Man Child. To do this I have to expound on the significance of the attire of the Woman – the ‘sun, moon and 12 stars’.
Clothed with the Sun.
Like we said before, the Sun is the glory of the Father, each time the Woman surfaced on the earth, she was clothed with the glory of the Father. In Israel before Moses was born, it was the Blessings of Jacob upon his twelve sons, in Mary, it was the Power of the Holy Spirit that overshadowed her. Therefore, it is of uttermost importance that this generation be clothed with the glory of the Father if we must take the leap from being the Woman to being the Man Child.
Across the nations of the earth, God’s servants have been shown visions and given prophetic words about a great and powerful move of the Spirit that will transcend anything we have ever seen or heard before. They have all called this movement by different names raging from; the saint movement, to dove movement, and even the last and final reformation of the church. I, on the other hand have decided to call this movement ‘the Man Child’. All of them are correct, however, the Man Child differs in one respect, it captures the Big Picture of this move of God while all others spoken by these prophets reveal only aspects of the Man Child.
We continue to explore the prophetic message revealed in the Woman and her offspring from our last two posts.
If you have read the previous articles, then the identity of the Woman is quite clear by now – she is any generation of God’s people that is pregnant with a ‘Man Child’. When such a generation faces tribulation which the scriptures call ‘birth pangs’ – Mark 13:8 – then it is time to bring forth the Man Child. But only a generation who knows the worth and significance of the Man Child will be willing to endure such tribulation.
The Sun Sets On One Age and Rises On Another
This post continues the flow of thoughts shared in The Untold Story Of Christmas. Today I want us to take a much deeper look at the woman that was clothed in the sun, moon and stars and the significance of the Man Child. (See Revelation 12)
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.
The following is a product of my conversation with a protégé on Bible study methods.
The young man said to me, “In major parts of the Old Testament, the temple and holy items are all measured. It may not relate, but when I saw that clause about measurements in your write up, The Pagemaster Project, it directed my mind to these passages on measurements – Exodus 25; Ezekiel 40-47; Revelation 11 – and prompted the question, What does the measuring imply for the church?”
Calvary greetings to you in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It brings me great honour to present to you a book-reading Symposium, which I am pioneering, called Pagemaster. Pagemaster is born out of the love to reach people with powerful Christian truths that work. And by God’s grace, Pagemaster is an idea whose time has come.
This initiative is by MainstreamMavericks.com whose visionary is Adams Allison and it is a knowledge-building platform harnessing the beauty and power of interaction through expository book readings and discussions.
In a mother’s womb were two babies.
One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
When ‘finding nothing’ becomes everything.
Two old ladies were walking around a somewhat overcrowded English country church yard and came upon a tombstone. The inscription said: “Here lies John Smith, a politician and an honest man.” “Good heavens!” said one lady to the other. “Isn’t it awful that they had to put two people in the same grave?!”
In that lady’s perspective, that was a “whitewashed tomb… full of dead men’s bones” (Matthew 23:27). Although she was mistaken, it is important to note that her perception, wrong as it may have been, would be the reality we’d all face if Jesus had not risen from the dead; we would have a crowded tomb instead of an empty one.
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
Rick Joyner often says that Christianity is the greatest adventure ever! It’s unfortunate though that that’s not the experience of many. I remember a colleague who professes to be Christian but drinks. When I asked him how he reconciles both his faith and his alcohol he said to me, “The faith was too boring for me, I had to spice it up with some buzz.”
Where then is the adventure in Christianity? It is in the rights and privileges we receive as born again citizens of God’s Kingdom. As exhilarating as that might be, it is only the threshold of the adventure for all who truly believe. The peak of it all is when we carry the weight of the crown.
“At that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.”
What drives Nigerians to desperately want their children born “abroad”? Is it better health care that drives them or something else? We all would agree that the motivation is better citizenship. The conviction is that they are securing a better future for their children by ensuring they become citizens of a better country.
