Partial Solar Eclipse:        13 September 2015         Jewish Festival: Feast of Trumpets

Total Lunar Eclipse:          28 September 2015         Jewish Festival: Feast of Tabernacles

With the last of the series of four Blood Moon’s on 28 September 2015, the internet has been full of ‘prophecies’ – most of them predicting doom and gloom coming to earth as we know it, with the result of utter chaos all around! From ‘prophecies’ saying the apocalypse is upon us, to others expecting earth to be struck by another planet – the doom keeps on coming!  Some have even gone so far as to publish lists which should be packed and kept ready to grab when we need to flee from the impending doom!

Remember we are living in the end times when false prophets will be around.  Be careful what you believe – listen to the Holy Spirit’s guidance when reading any ‘prophecy’, He’ll let you know when it really is a word from God.

The truth is that no-one knows the future, and yes, God does tell His children when He is about to move, before He moves.  Most of us have felt a ‘shift’ in the Spiritual Realm – a gut-feel that something is about to happen, that God is about to move...

Personally I believe that we are standing on the very verge of the biggest harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God ever seen in the history of the world. God’s glory is going to manifest on His children and through His children so strongly that the world will have no choice but to acknowledge that our God is the God of all, the King of kings!  Miracles will become an everyday occurrence just like the Bible says in Acts 2:17-21:

17 “‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’c]

God is raising up His children for all the world to see His glory.

To me that is so exciting, but when I said as much to God, He replied with a stern and urgent: ‘Warn My people!’

Why on earth would I warn the people if we are living in the most exciting time ever of God’s interaction with men?  God asked me: ‘when do people turn to Me?’ Well, when things go well the majority of people do not see the need for God – this is really a sad, harsh truth… So that means things must first go very bad before people are desperate enough to turn to God for help…

Sad fact is that most of us only met God when we were at a very low point in our lives, and without hope – there God met us, and only there did we start a relationship with God. The conclusion is therefore then that we are probably in for a ‘roller coaster-ride’ in the near future, but, for those of us who believe in God can know for sure that we are taking the journey with God – He will be with us every step of the way, and He will never leave or forsake us! 

During my conversations with God about what His children should be warned about, He gave me Psalms 91:

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because heb] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honour him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

Stand firm on God’s promise to us! The most important thing we can do is to keep our eyes on God and not be deceived by what our natural eyes see – no matter how bad things get in the world around us, God is for us and if God is for us, who can stand against us? (Romans 8:31)

I know the world around us seems to be falling apart already, but God is still in control. When things get tough, as they might, and you feel fear creeping up on you, remember that fear is not from God – God did not give us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7)

Now having said all of that, whenever I hear from God, I look for confirmation.  Here is what I have found:

Prophetic Encouragement for Fall 2015

With several months of the year of the whirlwind still ahead, how do we need to position ourselves and respond? First of all, we are to obey the admonition from scripture to not give in to fear. The enemy wants to stir up panic and distress, but we have to stand firm, trusting God’s faithfulness.

I want to share with you what I am hearing prophetically at this moment. On a global level, God is changing the landscape of financial power. Some nations are going to find that their "cash cows"—the commodities that have propped up their ideologies—are diminishing or being taken away. This will even begin to affect the terrorist organization, ISIS.

Is there going to be a total collapse such as we saw in 2008? If there is, I do not have a word about that. In past economic shakings, I have known in advance that a severe crisis would take place. For instance, in January of 2008, the Lord spoke the word to me, "There will be no more business as usual." It could be that this time around the Lord has simply chosen to speak to other prophets and not me, and that is His prerogative.

That being said, because many voices—both prophetic and secular economic analysts—have indicated the possibility of extreme economic turbulence this fall, we are committed to praying through this season. In April of this year, we took prayer teams to Wall Street to intercede for God to give us a course correction rather than a complete economic meltdown. There have already been some positive answers to those prayers, so we will continue to intercede.

As we move into the September/October months of the Jewish New Year and the appearance of the fourth blood moon, what do I know that I have heard? Historic changes will take place in the coming days that will be a prophetic catalyst for a great awakening. God is setting the stage for revival and harvest.

I also have a strong admonition that we are in a time of hearts being tested—whether we will rely on our own strength and capabilities, rather than God's.

Should we store up food? One should always be crisis-prepared, but hoarding out of fear is never from the Lord. Isn't He still the God who sees when the sparrow falls to the ground and takes care of the lilies of the field?

In truth, no matter what comes, we are called to be overcomers. There have been many dire prophecies, but they all are conditional upon a lack of repentant hearts. At the moment, there are a number of prayer projects and fasts being called by various ministries, and our Reformation Prayer Network stands with them as well.

God will be the same great God in the coming days as He is right now at this very moment. He is not about to forsake His children, no matter what transpires. He is vitally interested in our personhood, families, and futures. God is setting the stage to make some serious history, and I, for one, am not afraid of the future because He is my future—eternally!
