 Believers in the Last Days?

There has been much talk of the "Last Days", the "11th Hour" and the like. I think much on this in these trying times and ask some deep and serious questions. Jesus questioned if there would be any who believed in the last days. He also said that "these signs shall follow those who believe..."(Mark 16). Even that those who believe would do greater works than Him(John 14:12). I have looked the planet over and found so few that even come close to this fullfillment, let alone recognize the lack and I have to wonder. Wonder if yet more prophecy is being fullfilled in our midst.
I am blessed to see that my King confirms His/my words with signs and wonders but I ask where are our "Mighty men of Valor"(Joshua 1) who will pay the price for the "Anointing" of the Lord. Who will truly pick up their cross and die to self daily and be Christian... Christ like(1 Cor 11:1). Who will die for their King?

 Re: Believers in the Last Days?

Greetings my friend, and I so agree with you. Where are the Mighty Men? It's so amazing that I read this today, our Pastor this morn. spoke on having the mind of Christ. He described this as having a heart of sacrivice and servanthood. Both of which are lacking in our churches these days.
Re:the last days, I was always struck by Jesus saying it would be like the days of Noah, and preachers would have a lot to say about what the days of Noah were like but they all missed the point that I thought typifies that time more than any other. Holy men of God, preaching repentance were mocked. Boy, do we see that a lot today. The lost world will always mock that which they need the most.
In Christ alone,
Dave

Who will die for their King?

That's the question of the hour, beloved. Who will die for their King? That death is not physical, but it is the death of the will and personal ambition.
Who will listen to the call of the Holy Spirit? Who will take time for the secret place to take direction from the Father instead of what "seems good? Who will walk in obedience after the Spirit instead of after the flesh? Who will lost his/her life, so they can keep it? What idol(s) in your life keep you from this kind of crucifixion of self? Can I even continue to preach or minister and not completely allow myself to be consumed and immersed into His life?

Thank you for your post and your very important question.

 Re:

Wanderson

This post is very timely for me. I have had the privilege of praying with some very mighty men indeed! I must say though that their physical appearance though in some cases impressive, does not give the impression of “mighty men of God”. Their ministries are so quiet and hidden that they go almost unnoticed by the outside world but, I have be shown things in these men which only the Sons of God are capable of doing. I have seen some incredibly great works being done and I am convinced that prophesy is being fulfilled in others. I find it funny that these great ministries receive relatively no glory from men, but the lesser (I speak of the false ministries, for all true ministries in Christ are GREAT) ministries receive praise, honor, adoration and funding from us.

mmmmh. The old puritans used to say 'when the Son rises you can't see the stars'.

[i]It is our belief that the evangelical movement will continue to drift farther and farther from the New Testament position unless its leadership passes from the modern religious star to the self-effacing saint who asks for no praise and seeks no place, happy only when the glory is attributed to God and himself forgotten....[/i] A W Tozer

That is the best one I have heard in a long time!

[u]The preeminent Christ[/u] (1Colossians:14-22)

In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation; because by Him everything was created, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-- all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and by Him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He might come to have first place in everything. Because all the fullness was pleased to dwell in Him, and to reconcile everything to Himself through Him by making peace through the blood of His cross -- whether things on earth or things in heaven. And you were once alienated and hostile in mind because of your evil actions. But now He has reconciled you by His physical body through His death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before Him—

James

How we owe so much to this dear brother Tozer. Thank God is words are preserved here. To me, he is a modern day icon of true christian living. Quote's like the one above are just like diamonds shining in the soil. They sparkle in the light. Alleluia. Thank you for sharing it. I pray that God make me free enough to live like that.

 Re: Believers in the Last Days?

Hi everybory,

shouldn't the question be,

Am I the mighty man?
Am I ready to die for the king?

in love..
