I am about to do a work that will astound the nations of this world.
It will come upon them suddenly when they least expect it.
It will take men by surprise, from the most godly to the most arrogant.
It will alter the face of the world; it will shatter kingdoms;
it will break down fences;
it will demand great things from those who can bear to listen to my voice;
it will tear down the mighty from the seat of pride
and exalt the humble in spirit,
granting them release from bondage.
Who can stand when I arise from my place?
Who will be able to pursue any longer his path to the tree of knowledge?
Who will be able to maintain the theories
that fill the mind and starve the heart?
Who will be able to trust to the vanities of life,
and to the profound emptiness which man uses as his covering?
Behold, the utter desolation and nakedness of man will be exposed,
and men will run to places of refuge
lest their nakedness be seen and they suffer acute embarrassment.
Such is the nature of the light which will shine,
and which will dispel the darkness that has grown more and more intense in the years between.
Laughter will be turned to mourning;
joy will be turned into tears;
mirth will give way to bitterness of soul
as man sees more clearly than ever before the nature of what is around him,
and the worthlessness of the things in which he has put his trust.
Such will be the character of my day.
Such will be the manifestation of the sons of God,
and the blessings they will bring
to those who are ready and willing to accept my ways.
Such will be the entrance of new things into a world
that has grown old and stale,
bearing the ill savour of pollution and decay.
Such will be the winding up of the present order of things,
and the entrance of new light,
by which man may live in peace,
and reach out for a deeper understanding of his God.
Such is the word of announcement
that is now sent forth to herald these things.
When they come to pass,
the world will know and understand that it is the outworking of my plan, declares the Almighty God.
Some might say in this year 2001, “The prophecy is nearly 30 years old. How can anyone have confidence in it? The words speak of an event that is close to hand, not far distant.”
But does not the whole volume of Scripture contain just such an atmosphere? Prophecies written by Isaiah, for example, contain words that seem very appropriate to our own day and age, but he would have thought the fulfilment should have taken place in his own day, well over 2,000 years ago.
God is outside time, but speaks His purposes into time. His words are an expression of the Divine Mind. They will come to pass when the season is right.
