Scripture reading: John 17:5, 22

God’s smile, His good will, and His permissive will are all that the church seems to have been enjoying until now. But now is the time of the overshadowing, when the manchild church is being brought forth within the woman church. We are moving into a time when nothing but the perfect will of God will be acceptable.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” Revelation 12:1.

This is not Mary, the mother of Jesus. This chapter was written of the future and not of the past. Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Ghost and brought forth Jesus Christ, the son of God. The church is being overshadowed by the Holy Ghost again to bring forth the Christ in us, not in a physical sense, as with Mary who had a natural child, but in the spiritual sense, where we shall bring forth the fruit of the soul and not the fruit of the womb. “Clothed with the sun” signifies an elect and called-out people of God, who at last will attain to the glory of God as their covering. Covering is not only for protection, but clothes which they wear daily – the righteousness of God being a part of our habit. The sun represents Christ, just as the moon represents the church. This woman was clothed with the sun, and her footstool was the moon. The meaning is clear. It brings out the scripture of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:5 and 22,

“And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.

We do not need ecumenism. The glory of God in us is making us one without reservation or fear of separation.

This glory which Jesus prayed about is the picture we see in Revelation 12. It is the same glory which hung over the tabernacle in the wilderness. The same glory Ezekiel saw at the river Chebar, and which Isaiah saw in Isaiah 1 and 6. All the prophets saw it, and Paul saw it when he was knocked down on the road to Damascus. I believe this is the same glory which I also saw in a vision in Greenwich Farm in western Kingston, when I saw the shadow of a man, cast by a great light in the sky, resting on the sea and on the land, and the voice of God speaking to me, saying, “The glory of God dwelleth in His people.” The glory is already given, and the church needs to appropriate it. The people of God is the only temple on earth now recognized by the Lord as His temple. In Haggai 2:7 and 9, there is a prophecy which is yet to come to pass, and it cannot be speaking of a natural temple, as there is none now standing which would have the approval of God. This temple, of course, must be the temple of the human body which God desires to dwell in, “not made with hands.”

“And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts. The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.”

This scripture speaks of Revelation 12:1, which is the fulfillment of Haggai’s prophecy. The woman, the church, will be clothed at last, not in her own righteousness, but with the GLORY OF GOD.

“Upon her head a crown of twelve stars.”

Scripture reading: Revelation 11:1-3

Did you know that all of the mighty deliverances that you have read about in your Bible are about to happen to you? The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob is our God. He has never changed and He will never change. He promises you protection; hold onto that. Praise God.

The reason why the Bible says, “If anyone says that Jesus is out there, don’t go,” is because the first appearing of Jesus is in our souls, it is not out there (Matthew 24:23). Please believe me that we are not much and God wants us to acknowledge that nothingness in order that we might be able to trust Him for everything. Do you see what I am saying? He wants us to put the flesh down. The carnal things, the human operations, the power that we have, put it down. It is not going to stand in the day of battle, but the God in you is going to stand. This is the reason why God said not to believe that Jesus is out there, because Jesus is coming in you.

Look at Revelation 11. There is going to be trouble. People are going to be killed. There is a flock of the slaughter that is now being fattened for destruction (Zechariah 11:4, 7). Revelation 11:3, And I will give power unto my two witnesses… But verses one and two tell us that one section of the church will be trampled under foot. When we look at the Outer Court of the Tabernacle, we can see that it is the place where the people of God do not have the infilling of God. So any church that doesn’t believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost is a church that is in the Outer Court. Read in Revelation 11:2 what it says about the Outer Court. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. When God speaks of 42 months, He is talking about a lunar year. Lunar means the moon going around the earth 42 times, 42 new moons. He says that they are going to be trampled for 42 moons.

But then He says in verse 3, And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days. When you speak of days, you speak of a solar year. It means that the sun will be rising and setting for a thousand two hundred and sixty times. Basically that will be three and a half years. He is talking about lunar years, too.

If this is so, you ask yourself the question, “When is this going to take place?” We hear that there are riots in Iran. Iran was a trigger that Satan was about to use to trigger this war. The riots in Iran are preventing Satan from pulling the trigger. You notice the little things that will happen to hold back, which are giving us time to prepare.

You have to be prepared in your mind; that is the chief preparation. God might speak to some of you about saving some food, water, solar energy and things like that. As sons of God, you should be well advanced in doing these things.

Somebody says, “But we are sons of God; we don’t have to make any preparation.” Sons of God obey God. If God tells you to jump, you jump. If He tells you to sit down, you sit down. That is the difference between the righteousness of this time and the past righteousness. You see, the righteousness before Jesus came that brought the Holy Ghost was that men would do certain things. They would read their Bible so many times a day, pray so many times a day, do this, do that, or do that. Now righteousness is doing what God wants you to do when He wants you to do it. So when the Holy Ghost wanted them to go into the corn field on the Sabbath day, they did it. They didn’t care about the law, as you know.

Can you understand then, what makes you righteous now? It is obeying the Holy Spirit. That is what makes you righteous now. So then, as righteous people, we are going to walk according to the plan of God and not according to our own thinking. I hope you can get that part, because this is the main thing that is going to get you ready for a time of trouble that will be greater than any other.
