They will hear the trumpet blaring, growing louder and louder to announce His coming. It says here that the heavenly signs will be apparent. All you have to do is look up and see the sun darkened, the moon will have a bloody look to it, stars falling from heaven. You've seen shooting stars, but have you seen stars falling from heaven? I don't know what it is going to be like. But, it is going to be a terrific light show whatever it is.
We've seen some things that are awesome. But, when Christ returns we will all be dazzled, amazed, and utterly shaken. It won't be like a fireworks show on July fourth where we go, "Oooh," and "Aaah! As it says in Revelation, people will be crawling into caves, calling on the mountains to fall on them because it will be so distressful and devastating.
They don't want to see this light show, because when Christ comes He wants everybody to know. There is not going to be some secret rapture. This is going to be something that everyone will witness, everyone will see, everyone will know, no one will be able to say, "I couldn't see it. I was here, or there," or whatever. They will all be able to hear it and feel it! We will see later in Peter that everything is going to be rockin' and rollin' at this time.
All of this happens after the Great Tribulation—the time that God says is the worst time that has ever been.
We've seen some of, or heard about some of the things like Cambodia, and Rwanda, and Sudan, and the Communist purges earlier in the last century; as mentioned earlier, Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and we all know about the Holocaust, and the things that Nazi Germany did. We can go on and on. But, the inhumanity and suffering of the Great Tribulation will be even worse than that. And then, it will be followed by the Day of the Lord, which is worse still.
I want to go to Revelation 11 just to pick up one thing here. It is like a one-verse encapsulation of the things that happen on that Day. This is the seventh trumpet being blasted. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. We will see as we go through that these same descriptors—these same ideas—keep coming back time and time, and time again to let us understand as much as we can about what the second coming of Jesus Christ is going to be like.
This is an image of battle or of war. For where you see carrion birds circling, finally making their circle so small that they're coming right down on the carrion lying there on the ground, you know that there's been some sort of death. And if all the birds are gathered there for their fill, you know that there has been a huge battle.
This is what is being shown here. It tells us that Christ's return is not only a time of war, but is an aspect of war. He is coming as a conquering King; a General of armies; a Man of war. Maybe we can see this best in Revelation We will see the carrion imagery repeated a little bit later on. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns.
He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, "Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.
Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. Not only is it shock and awe, it is destruction like we have never imagined. The flesh of all people, it says, small and great. God comes back—Jesus Christ comes back—to wage war—a righteous war. A war that has been brewing for years because of mankind's hostility and rebellion to God. By this time, God has had His fill of sin. He comes back and treads the winepress of His wrath. It says that the blood comes up to the horse's bridles.
Can you imagine blood three or four feet deep flowing like a river? Some people faint dead away when they see a little bit of blood. They can't take even that much. But, can you imagine a river flowing with blood through the valley of Jehoshaphat? Not a pretty picture. Now we see here that just like in Iraq today, the enemy regime and all of its supporters must be removed before a new and better government can be installed. We see this same thing throughout the Bible. We're going to make a survey of many of the Old and New Testament scriptures about the return of Christ, and we're going to see all these things repeated time and time again.
You know, we say that if God repeats things three times, we really ought to take notice? Well, we will see this is repeated dozens of times. God wants us to have a clear picture of what's in store for this world because of its rebellion. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.
He will subdue the peoples under us, and the nations under our feet. He will choose our inheritance for us, the excellence of Jacob whom He loves. God has gone up with a shout, the L ORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with understanding. God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne.
The princes of the people have gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; He is greatly exalted. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.
He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries. He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; therefore He shall lift up the head. So, even the Psalms get into the act of showing the awesome might of Christ's return, showing that Christ's return is one of war and vengeance with great wrath.
He is going to come with power to set things straight. For behold, the L ORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain. The image of bodies just lying all around. It says in one place that it will take a great deal of time—maybe 7 years—for all the bodies to be found and buried. He saw that there was no man [no leader], and wondered that there was no intercessor; [Why doesn't somebody do something?
For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay.
So shall they fear the name of the L ORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the L ORD will lift up a standard against him. That's the whole reason for His coming. He is trying to save.
That's why His coming—why what He does—is righteous. It is the end result that He is looking toward. And this coming in power—shock and awe, and this great glory—is part of this. Like I said, it is calculated. For I have trodden them in My anger, and trampled them in My fury; their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have stained all My robes. For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. A year of recompense. I have trodden down the peoples in My anger, made them drunk in My fury, and brought down their strength to the earth. He had just spoken to the church basically from verse 5 all the way to verse This was the imagery of a woman giving birth very quickly.
It is given to us saying that when you see this happening For behold, the L ORD will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, [We've heard that before, the great wind He's not only angry, He is furious] and His rebuke with flames of fire. This is a classic biblical understatement. It will be myriads upon myriads. It is gruesome to think about. OK, to that wonderfully optimistic prophet—Joel, chapter 2. Well, he does get optimistic at the end. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the L ORD is coming, for it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning clouds spread over the mountains.
A people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been; nor will there ever be any such after them, even for many successive generations. For the day of the L ORD is great and very terrible; who can endure it? Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the L ORD. Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up.

- CARRIERS OF FIRE;
Beat your plowshares into swords [that's backwards to what is said in Isaiah 2 and Micah 4] and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, 'I am strong. Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Come, go down; for the winepress is full, the vats overflow—for their wickedness is great. For the day of the L ORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness.
In Joel, you see a lot of these things, almost all of them, come together in one narrative showing us just how terrible and awesome that time will be. Even Haggai gets into the description here. Normally we don't think of Haggai in this way, but he says it twice! I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms. I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. The way Haggai puts it here is godly shock and awe for sure.
Notice how he writes this: This one, many believe, applies to His first coming, but it applies just as well to the second. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? You are either cowering in terror, or are on your knees in subjection, and submission to Him.
In a short time! And the day which is coming shall burn them up," says the L ORD of hosts, "that will leave them neither root nor branch.http://serviciifunerarebraila.ro/components/32/4562.php
Shock and Awe - and Speed
Have you ever heard of a "scorched earth policy? He can scorch it if He wants to. And, that's what He is doing to the people—the proud He says here. Stubble will be all that remains. This is very serious. He takes so much of His Word to describe this over, and over, and over again.
I've only gone to some of them.
There's only so much time. We really haven't gotten to the New Testament. There are three instances in the gospels alone where this is gone into in detail in the three descriptions of the Olivet Prophecy. If you want an interesting little study, first and second Thessalonians are all about the return of Jesus Christ. Because, the question there was that somebody had convinced some there that the resurrection had already occurred. And so Paul tells them at the end of every chapter, "No, it hasn't happened yet! This is what is going to happen He talks about the coming of the Lord, with such-and-such will occur and then you will rise into the air to meet him, etc.
These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed. Paul doesn't hold back either. He is like one of the Old Testament prophets. He sure had an understanding of the Old Testament through all of his learning throughout his life.
He knew those prophecies backwards and forwards. He distills it here in just a few verses. He talks about the flaming fire, the everlasting destruction, and the glory of His power. Which gives us an indication that we too, as New Testament Christians ought to understand what is coming in quite a bit of detail. In the time that we have left, I want to go through a few scriptures that emphasize the speed of His coming, because that's important as well.
Not just the shock, and awe, and fury, and flame, and the smoke, and the clouds, but it is coming fast. Faster than the cruise missiles come in and explode. If you think of something hastening, it is coming pretty fast. But, it's not only hastening it is hastening quickly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of devastation and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, [I think he must have gotten together with Joel.
Talk about having people set back on their heels. They will be flat on their backs when this occurs. It's going to come down like we can't even imagine. I want to show you that Jesus Himself, in a way, echoes this. He says here in verse 29 of Mark 13 in this whole section about the parable of the fig tree that you are going to know when it is near, because the signs will be there for you to follow. So, if you or anybody else thinks they know, you have just sinned against God by calling Him a liar! He says, "No one knows! Do you know more than Jesus Christ?
Only the Father knows. It is all in His hands as Sovereign of the universe. He's the Commander in Chief when He says go, the army goes. Shock and awe on His command. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—. Three times in four verses He says that you do not know.
Is that enough to convince us? And will not know, at least down to the day and the hour. I wanted more than anything to be a man of faith. I wanted these pieces to fit together so I could arrive at some conclusion. God was telling me not to pray! Yet, I still had unresolved issues that demanded a miracle. Oh how alone I felt! Then the answer came. God asked me why I was praying for something that was already promised in His Word.
He has promised to supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory. The very act of asking God for my needs to be met revealed my lack of faith that it has already been done! I was attempting to convince God to do something that He already had resolved! My prayer evidenced my doubt which resulted in my prayer being unanswered! The Bible reveals, as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
Doubt was in my heart. It also reveals that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. I was speaking unbelief. Finally, the Bible reveals that the power of life and death are in the tongue. The unbelief in my heart was manifesting as decrees of death over my finances! But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. Now, when I pray, I simply remember that prayer rhymes with declare.
I hear God and then declare to the atmosphere and my situations how they must conform to His will. It turns us from a position of defeat and passivity to a position of victory and spiritual violence and powerful faith! We change from the afflicted to the afflictor! We had a team of college aged young men and women come to Revolution Church for Mission Manitou —a spiritual warfare missions experience. It was an amazing week. We are literally in a large cave, in perfect darkness with no sense of time. For nearly a year I had suffered from a severe pinched nerve in my right shoulder.
My right arm and fingers would either tingle or go numb continually. My shoulder, at times, hurt so badly I could barely stand it. I had been to a chiropractor and a massage therapist. Prior to entering the cave, we had a powerful prayer and worship event at the church. Near the end of that service, I had asked one of the prayer missionaries from Michigan to pray for my shoulder.
This particular girl had been pressing so hard the entire week as God was healing her, touching her and shaking her. She craved breakthrough in her life. She prayed for me for quite some time, and then it was time for all of us to enter the cave. In the cave, we experienced four seasons that the Lord established as a part of the Revelation Driven Prayer training program.
We eliminated everything from the depths of our heart. People who never had the confidence to cry out or to pray out in public were wonderfully released to do so. There was such a presence of the Holy Spirit as people wept and repented and released past hurts. The stronger the Holy Spirit stirs the more we crave to eliminate and repent deeply.
The groanings of a broken and humbled person simply overwhelm people who are pressing intentionally and passionately into the place where God is moving. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. Pressing into a place of repentance results in a lot of time being made undone before our Father. Lengthy prayer simply must be a normal reality on a continual basis if we desire to break through to the heart of God. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
This is what we found in the cave—people crying out! If we go to a deeply expressive place of repentance, desperation, desire and longing for our Lover, our Lover will hear us! If our heart is broken, He is near to us! That is one amazing Scripture! Jesus, come into my life like never before! Please, fire of God, burn my flesh! People want to be free from their unwitting alliance with the enemy.
This season of elimination causes us all to be emptied. Deliverance happens at times in this phase. This is a time of adoration, worship and becoming aligned as perfectly as possible with Christ Jesus. It was beautiful to hear the raw worship sounding off the walls of the cavern. After finding themselves empty after the previous season, people were longing to be full of a supernatural fire. God was closer than ever!

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. This second season is critical if we are to clearly hear God in the next season. Our lives are no longer our own, but we are surrendered to God. We are consecrated to Him. This season is marked by a lot of excitement and wonderful freedom. The result of eliminating all of our baggage is a bunch of extra room for God to operate in our lives. The Spirit of God literally fills us up to overflowing, and we are suddenly putty in His hands.
We may go on for a couple of hours in this season. Now, with the old man crucified and the Spirit of God blowing like a wind in and through us, it becomes very easy to hear His voice. We capture His dreams and desires for our lives. This next season is critical to the process of Revelation Driven Prayer—hearing God.
With this team from Michigan, I encouraged people, most of whom have never prophesied, to listen to the voice of God and share it with us. One by one people would share pictures, impressions, Scriptures and other words from heaven. I explained that God desires to speak clearly and continually to every man, woman and child of His on the planet. To prophesy is simply to hear God and to repeat what He says. Share with others the heartbeat of God in any given situation. We are all to have spiritual dreams and visions, to walk in the Spirit and hear in the Spirit.
God is continually sharing His heart with us and to receive that data from the invisible realm is amazing! Not only does it make life exciting, it makes it survivable. The only way we can obey God is if we hear Him! So, as we hear His voice, we can know what is required of us. We can see into the spirit realm and understand how to battle the enemy. This is how it unfolded in this particular situation: We were about to move into the fourth and last season called execution—declaring and enforcing the will of God that was just revealed in this season of prophetic revelation.
One of those moments that every leader has to deal with at one time or another—a crazy prophetic word! She was hearing God, and I was excited about that. That same vision intensified extensively during the season of prophecy and hearing God there in the cave. She saw someone holding a voodoo doll of me and they were poking me in the shoulder over and over again. I was contorting my body every which way I could in an attempt to relieve the pressure in my shoulder.
I was almost in tears much of the night. I then announced to everybody there that we were a living experiment. God was taking us by the hand and teaching us about Revelation Driven Prayer. I told everybody that God has revealed His desire—He wanted me healed that very moment. It was now time to move into our last season—execution. I asked that girl if she would pray for me. Something happened to this girl—the fire of God was on her! She prayed down the heavens while the rest of the people in that cave warred in the Spirit and interceded with passion.
The noise was astounding. All of a sudden my shoulder started to burn intensely! It was like someone poured hot oil on my shoulder and was rubbing it in. It went down my arm all the way to the tips of my fingers. God was instantly healing me. I went through every movement I could think of, I pressed my fingers deep into the spot that had previously hurt so badly.
My fingers which were previously partially numb were now highly sensitive. It was really happening—I was healed! My arm was on fire. I told everybody what was going on as it was happening. I half-way jokingly asked them if they could see my arm glowing there in the dark cave! It was so hot I thought people around me could feel the warmth!
To this very day my arm has been healed. God was waiting to heal me so all of those people in that dark cave would experience the glory of God. This last season of execution is simply that—we execute the instructions of God as He reveals them to us. We came into perfect agreement with God, looked at the spirit of Infirmity with fire in our eyes and a supernatural confidence and cast it out. The attack of witchcraft was annihilated in a place of agreed prayer. Revelation Driven Prayer works. We pour ourselves out, spend hours in the presence of God, hear His voice and then war in the Spirit.
Miracles are then the expected, and very regular, result. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. I want to encourage you to pattern your own prayer life in this way. Every day, present yourself to the Lord and go through these four seasons. If Christians will eagerly step up to a place of two or three hours of intentional prayer every day, we will experience an outpouring of God within weeks if not sooner!
Praying prayers into the nether regions without at least a low level of supernatural insight is a frustrating activity. To pray is good and beneficial. However, we should crave the highest level of efficiency and effectiveness as possible. This lesson was drilled home by the Holy Spirit this particular day at Revolution a few years ago. Spend time preparing your heart to receive and to be an instrument of intercession and authority in my hands.
The reality that God has such an expansive perspective that goes far beyond our own viewpoint should grip us. Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? So, I walked around Revolution Church with no list of petitions. I worshiped, humbled my heart, prayed in tongues and waited.
God then spoke this is always the starting point of effective prayer. The faith is so high in this room that you could cut it with a knife. I shared with the team what God had instructed us to do. We all spread out, prayed and anointed the property from room to room. The city of Manitou Springs and this particular property has a very dark history. Many call Manitou Springs the darkest and most strategically demonic city in the nation. This particular property was over years old and was once a brothel.
A single wall divided the two sides. When the church first moved in to this location I found it very hard to physically breathe. The demonic stronghold there was unusually heavy. We did a good job of cleaning things up on our side of the wall and enjoyed the presence of God in freedom to a wonderful degree. However, this very day God was calling us to advance beyond the wall. After we spent some time praying throughout the rooms of the building on our side, I called everybody together and told them we were to lay hands on the wall that divided the two sides and to pray from the perspective of authority and with great faith and confidence based on the revelation that God had given us.
As we were all praying, my cell phone rang. I just let it go to voicemail as we continued on. We all went outside and walked around the perimeter of the building and thanked God for what was accomplished. At that point I remembered that I missed a phone call when I was inside praying at the wall, so I checked my voicemail.
It was my landlord. He wanted to talk with me. Immediately the anointing around me started to burn even hotter. The swirl of God was so strong on me that I had to intentionally maintain my composure.
Right in the middle of a powerfully unified and faith-filled moment of prayer my phone rang with the answer I was seeking! That next month we moved into the very room that was on the other side of the wall where we were praying. We took ground and prospered financially all because I laid down my agenda, waited, received precise revelation and came into active agreement with it.
The past week in Manitou Springs, Colorado resulted in a shaking and weighty awakening for every person on our team. Listen as I share the encounters here: Trust me, you WANT to listen to this …the last half of the audio includes an other-worldly prophetic session where the calling for revival was revealed AND clips from each of the three services, including our attack against witchcraft and the drunkenness I was rocked with. High entertainment value for sure!
We are gathering an army of carriers of fire who will travel with us to the cities of the Earth. The team that we took to Manitou flowed in such extreme authority and power that everybody was hit dramatically. We dealt with heavy witchcraft and strategic demonic attack at a high level, and watched as God then flooded that place. This is a pattern of advance for all of us. I break it down and share sound clips: Are you ready to invite our team to your city for an event that will bring deliverance, shock and awe? We are broken and humble people, emboldened by the fire of God and ready to serve you.
You will have the opportunity to listen to four of our team members in the audio from last night here: Julia Palermo prophesied with trembling urgency regarding the house of prayer in the Detroit region. It must be launched now! Are you ready to help build a night and day center of strategic, revelation driven prayer? We need to add fresh intercessors, musicians and others. You can donate here: I also want to invite you to listen to a message that will provoke you to fulfill your ministry. Nobody was called into an average life.
At the end of the age! An undertaking or enterprise of a hazardous nature. An undertaking of a questionable nature, especially one involving intervention in another state's affairs. Chesterton All Things Considered ]. British Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton placed this advertisement in London newspapers in in preparation for the National Antarctic Expedition which subsequently failed to reach the South Pole.
Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success. The adventure is there for you! All you have to do is sign up and pay the fee! It costs your dreams, plans, comfort and safety! Your adventure will impact many! Isaiah sees God These steps come from Ungers Handbook. Each had six wings: Your adventure begins by laying down everything so you can see God! Devote your every breath to knowing him deeply!
For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts! You cannot see God without having a revelation of your own wretched condition! The closer the look on our own condition, the greater the revelation of our fruit. We must repent, confess, let God search our hearts continually. Believes must live a life of confession and repentance.
And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. Let God search your heart continually in the place of fervent prayer. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever. This is the prime essential. If this is not done, the rest that I am to say will come to nothing.
I have given this prescription around the world. It has been taken by many churches and many communities, and in no instance has it ever failed; and it cannot fail! We must get thoroughly right with God! Let God search us! Is there any impure thought? Do we ever lie? Do we ever gossip? Do we ever disobey God? You may have heard a theology out there that says Jesus forgave our sins past, present and future. Jesus did what he needed to do, but, unrepentant sin, ignored sin, cannot go unresolved! You can sin in the future and have it not be covered! I shared the following on Facebook: The false belief that we are exempt from penalties of future sins with no confession or repentance is dangerous beyond measure.
Who believes that way? It's a huge false movement. Guess I'd have to go to a church that preaches a false word to know…praise God for the Baptists. Prophetic messengers will have the boldness to proclaim the word of the Lord regardless of its tone! Now God can call Isaiah and use him to preach His Word. The prophet is no longer wrapped up in his own needs; he wants to do the will of God. He is no longer burdened by sin; he has been cleansed. He is no longer discouraged; he knows that God is on the throne. Now he is ready to go to work.
Whom shall I send? Who will go for us? Isaiah is given the outcome of the commission. We see in Mt 13 that Jesus spoke in parables because of this very judgment! And also in John: From morning till evening he expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. This is why we need prophetic messengers with a bold spirit of awakening on them!!!!! How long would this spiritual deterioration go on? To the complete blotting out of Israel's testimony to the one true God?
No, came the divine answer. Only until the complete devastation of the land and the removal of its inhabitants to Babylon were accomplished. Thence a remnant would return to Palestine. Even this tenth part would be further reduced, yet a holy posterity would survive in whom the ultimate hope of Israel would rest and in whom the covenants and promises would be realized. You have an impending adventure if you simply sign up!
Sometimes God will draw you into adventure to cause you to become addicted to adventure! God is looking for a people who are ready to give up the tired, old dreams of man for an adventure that will change societies! A study made a number of years ago said the more education a man has, the less likely he is to be an inventor. Now the reason for that is quite simple. From the time the boy, or girl, starts in school he is examined three or four times a year and, of course, it is a very disastrous thing if he fails. An inventor fails all the time and it is a triumph if he succeeds once.
