We are facing a time when the word deliverance will take on a whole new
meaning! In the past, Christians have thought of deliverance mainly as physical
healing but soon the greatest deliverance will be from fear and terror!
Deliverance at that time will mean having a “sure word from heaven.” Jesus
said that men’s hearts will fail them for fear as they see the awful things
coming on the earth (see Luke 21:26) Indeed, people will clamor to know what
God is going to do next. They will turn in all directions, wanting to hear the
voice of someone who is calm, peaceful, not going crazy. They will cry,
“Please tell me! Is this God’s judgment? When is it all going to end?”
And who do you think is going to have the answers? You! The ordinary Christian
who has been shut in with God! You will be full of calm and peace while
everything is falling apart, because God is with you and you’re hearing from
heaven. He warned you this was coming and He promised to protect you!
I believe God is going to use His holy remnant in these last days to stir
multitudes, revive pastors, and awaken churches. This army will turn people’s
hearts back to God by bringing them to repentance—through prayer and godly
reproof of sin.
When I speak of a holy remnant in training, I do not mean an army of preachers,
evangelists and missionaries. I am talking about ordinary saints, lovers of
Jesus who themselves will be signs and wonders to the world, peaceful and calm.
God does not want a professional army trained in man’s methods. He wants men
and women who are trained in prayer by the Holy Spirit! He is seeking believers
who are shut in with Him, preparing their hearts before Him, learning to hear
Does this describe you? Is your life right now a witness to a scared and shaken
world? I urge you to get alone with God and let Him speak to you. Ask Him to
reveal the sin in your life. Forsake all that the Holy Spirit convicts you of.
Make yourself available to Him by giving yourself to prayer and then you will
be a ready soldier in His great, last-day remnant army.
