It Shall Be Seen In 2018
It is with Jesus Joy, that I wish upon each of you grace and peace upon you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to connect with the members, friends and guests of O’Fallon Apostolic Assembly. Truly God has been good to O’Fallon in 2017. As we look back over the recently expired year, there have been many tests. But like the grace of God, victories in Christ did much more abound. I am sure that the forces of darkness did what they could to discourage and depress us, but God be thanked, that our Lord has granted us the victory. We made it!
As we look forward to 2018, I want to flow into my divine purpose. I am sure that you do too. But just what that is remains to be the question. I don’t mean that God has changed the assignment of life but rather what is the next step in that process. We want to know and grow in the knowledge of the will of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In addition to desiring personal revelation, I hunger to know His will concerning these end times. I see so much of the last days scenario either being fulfilled (wars and rumors or wars, diseases, natural disasters, etc.) and moving toward fulfillment. I shared with the O.A.A. Family on December 31st, that I have never sought to be the one who professed to always have a personal prophetic word for the saints. It’s not that I disbelieve (though I believe some use it as a gimmick), but I tend more toward understanding the scripture. I have told the Saints that our Lord has instructed us, “...you study for education, you pray for inspiration, but we seek Him for revelation”. I believe therefore that something dramatic as it relates to the fulfillment of eschatological (the study of the last days) prophesy will be seen in 2018. Will it some seismic movement regarding Israel and her Muslim neighbors? Will it be some unexpected explosion in information, further adding to the increase of knowledge? Will there be some unprecedented unifying of governments or churches such as would lead to a “one world government” or a “one world church”. It may be any of these things or something totally unexpected. But I keep hearing, “It Shall Be Seen in 2018.”
One thing is for sure; while I may not know what “It” is, I am looking for the “Rapture of the Church”. The Bible says, “and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”, in Hebrews 9:28. I am looking for Him, are you?
