Recognizing Divine Opportunity For Miracles
...and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.” -Haggai. 2:7-9
The patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob all prospered in recession and difficult times in their days.
They are our examples of what will happen again at these last days of economic shakings. You cannot pray away the economic meltdown. It is an opportunity for the saints to prosper and the world to surrender to God when everything has failed around them. Unlikely people will be saved and many others who trust in mammon will lose their lives by suicide, depression, and mental anguish. Desperation will be the reward of the present-day apostasy and godlessness, but for the sons of the kingdom, this present hour is the opportunity for the church. God has started to turn the wealth of the world to the hand of the righteous for the gospel of our Lord to be preached to the ends of the earth according to prophet Haggai (Haggai 2: 7-9)
Abraham’s holiness and friendship with God did not stop famine on earth. Isaac, a son miraculously born by Abraham after 25 years of waiting did not stop the famine in his days; so there is no holiness that will stop the recession from taking place and overtaking the world. But to think that the destiny of the world is the destiny of the church is to insult the spirit of compassion. That is why God is equipping the five-fold ministry of the apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors and teachers with wisdom and boldness to mentor the saints correctly and for them to soar above the storms like a golden eagle.
The Holy Spirit is the advantage of the believers at this hour. As the eagle takes advantage of the wind in times of great storms to rise to the highest heights, so the saints will use this recession to ride upon the high places of the earth and bring much profit to the kingdom.
Prayer: I declare in the name of Jesus, that I will shine in the midst of darkness that is coming upon this world in this last day. Amen
