Better Than At Your Beginning

 "I . . . will do better unto you than at your beginnings" (Ezekiel 36:11).
This is a promise of a great work of God—greater than Pentecost—that will
occur in these last days.

Think back to your spiritual "beginnings," when you first got saved. You were
so happy and excited about Jesus. Now God is saying to you, "I'm going to do
better than that for you!" He is going to do better things in the church than
ever before. Better than the Red Sea? Better than Elijah calling down fire from
heaven and shutting down rain? Yes, God has something better.

"What could be better?" you ask. "Our very faith is built on these great
examples." Beloved, we are going to see the fullest revelation of Jesus Christ
in the history of mankind. And here is the greatness of such a miracle: God is
going to take the filthiest, most perverse generation of all time—a
generation with the stoniest hearts in history—and clean them up, give them
loving hearts, and turn them into a holy flock "I will increase them with men
like a flock. As the holy flock . . ." (Ezekiel 36:37-38). God is going to save
a "flock"—a great multitude—of men and women. We will see sinners from every
walk of life saved: Jews, Muslims, rich, poor, murderers, people of all
backgrounds.

You say, "That's not a new thing. Wicked sinners have always been cleansed by
Christ. God's been doing that since the cross." True, but remember, sin is
increasing; wickedness is growing worse and worse. And where sin abounds, God's
grace abounds much more.

At the Red Sea, the devil was advancing and threatening to pounce on God's
people. The difference today is, he already has prevailed against the
backslidden church, capturing and enslaving millions: "Because they have . . .
swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue
of the heathen . . . and are an infamy of the people" (Ezekiel 36:3).

But now, God is going to move in for this reason: "Because the enemy hath said
against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession" (verse
2). Satan and his crowd have mocked and laughed, saying, "We have destroyed the
work of Christ on earth!" But God says, "For My name's sake, I'm going to do a
mighty deliverance."

You will need faith to understand this miracle, because it is going to come at
the neediest, most critical time in the history of the Church. God will cause
His flock to walk in righteousness. He will bring down such conviction that
believers will literally loathe their past sins. "I will multiply men upon
you... [you] will increase and bear fruit . . . and [I] will do better unto you
than at your beginnings” (Ezekiel 36:10-11).
