A couple of weeks ago we put out a word entitled "First the BadNews". It looked at the huge "shaking" that is already underwayaround the globe this year, as well as the fragility of the economicsystem in the face of the long downturn. 2011 certainly looks tobe a "shaking" year.But now I want to look at the "good" news. You see, I believe allthis shaking is exactly the environment in which God's true remnantis designed to THRIVE. A couple of years ago, speaking aboutthis very thing, I wrote an article called "Expand While the DevilShrinks". I believe we are right now entering a time of breakthroughand advancement and "action" for the remnant of God that hasbeen going through a great 'desert' still clinging to pure Truth. Atime of real "release" is near.Certainly, we personally sense a great time of "New Beginnings"this year and next.In my article 2 years ago I wrote: "Are you one who has spent yearsin the wilderness, waiting for God's moment? Are you a David in thecaves, a Joseph in the dungeons? Couldn't it be that this is the verymoment that God has been preparing you for, all this time?...You see, the "big boys" with their shallow gospel are in increasingtrouble through all of this. They rely on big money, big media, bighype and big budgets to get their message out. And the budget islooking rather sick. Could it be that God is leveling the playing field?... Are the little guys with their message of repentance and heart-holiness about to break through the glass ceiling that has keptthem down for so long?"My belief is that the power of Mammon will increasingly lose it'sgrip on the Western church - and the power of 'Kundalini' even moreso. Both will be in more and more trouble, and slowly I believe theTruth will come more and more into the ascendant. Those with areal message of Truth who have been on the back foot for yearsare about to have their moment. And we need to seize hold of itwhen it arrives. But it will be far easier with the wind at our backs.We won't need to "strive". This is God's doing - and for us Hisburden will be light. But we do need to be ready to act and to moveand to step boldly into His plan. "Expand while the devil shrinks".Be daring and move forward. Take action in the Lord.Already the deceivers and false teachers are struggling. Alreadythe "Mammonizers" and spiritual compromizers find themselveson the back foot. This will grow greater and greater, I believe.Jesus wants His church back. And great will be the crash ofonce-mighty manipulators. Already it has begun.Who will step into this breach? Only those who are ready. Onlythose who are prepared. Only those who have truly come throughthe wilderness with no bitterness, no malice and are fully readyfor their "Jordan".I want to encourage the remnant of God with these words: Preparefor action. Prepare to "step up". Be on the lookout for open doorsand opportunities. Test the waters and move out."For many that are first shall be last, and many that are last shallbe first." Be alert to move, my friends. We are entering a new time.
