Many Prophets around the world have been prophesying that the glory is coming this year. If we wind our clocks back to the end of last year, we hear this same word coming as a forerunner through Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, but he includes the following:
The Lord Jesus said, “2020 is a yeah of preparation.” From 2021 onward, great and dangerous events are going to take place in the world; it is going to be the beginning of times of great tribulation and trials. Many things that were prophesied concerning the end times would begin to take place in large scale all over the world.
With recent prophesies confirming what Sundar released last year, it is wise to take a closer look at what this word is saying.
Sundar tells us that the body of Christ have been appointed one year to prepare for what is coming – the glory of the Lord for His people to participate in. He reminds us of the parable of the gardener tending the fig tree in in the vineyard (Luke 13:6-9), who was confronted by the owner who had wanted fruit but found none. In mercy, the gardener was given one extra year of grace to bear fruit before the tree was to be cut down. To place more emphasis on this one year of grace, Sundar recalls Jesus cursing a fig tree which He sought fruit on but found none (Mark 11:12-14). Sundar also raises two other biblical accounts of one year being given by the Lord to prepare to validate this Word given to him (Dan 4, Deu 24:5), one of which included the casting out of Nebuchadnezzar for not paying heed to the Word given to him.
So we see scripture both warns us, and illustrates that judgement does indeed come.
What was the word of the Lord given to Sundar for the church?
It is time for the body of Christ to bear the fruit of a transformed life. Not thinking we can get by with the leaves of our works: the works of the ministry in being a good teacher, a good preacher or a good evangelist – these are nothing more than leaves, they are our talk and what we do. Our fruit is who we are inside, and what comes out of us when squeezed.
The fruit we need to bear is the fruit of a transformed life. The kind of fruit we can only get if we abide in Him:
Joh 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
The same fruit Paul desired:
Php 4:17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.
The kind of fruit that will bring glory to the Father:
Joh 15:8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
When we are in a place of bringing forth fruit to glorify the Father, then we are in a place of preparation in readiness of that glory.
Sundar relays a message he received from Jesus – that there are many liars in the body of Christ living hypocritical lives, thieving from others in their pretentious lives. It is time to stop asking for forgiveness, but to overcome all weakness and put to death all sin, it is time to crucify the flesh and mortify the deeds of the flesh.
Rom 8:13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
So we hear from the prophets that the glory is coming, and we also have been warned of coming tribulation as Sundar speaks of the pending wrath of God, the seven bowls bearing plagues and the wrath of God from the Book of Revelation (Ch15-6), the time of tribulation. Clearly, it is time to put Him first and leave sin behind:
Act 17:30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,
Act 17:31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Luk 3:9 And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”
One year to prepare to participate in the coming glory, the year of 2020 and it is almost over. With hindsight we can see that the Lord has even shut everything down to give us time and a chance to get ready – have you been on your own path? Or the Lord’s?
It is time to study to show yourselves approved and let the revelation change you, to find truth and leave the false teachers, the false pastors and the false prophets behind so the Holy Spirit can work in you. It is time to find the remnant and join it.
How do we prepare?
Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Luk 3:8 Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
If we come to a true state of repentance, and not just expect we can say a prayer and everything will be done for us, Sundar reminds us that the Lord hides His righteous ones:
Psa 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
Jer 36:26 And the king commanded Jerahmeel the king’s son, Seraiah the son of Azriel, and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel, to seize Baruch the scribe and Jeremiah the prophet, but the LORD hid them.
Joh 8:59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
We should see this as a stern warning that it is time for change. Join us at the Voice of Healing to explore the deep things of God, to receive the ingrafted Word which is able to save your soul by renewing it and transforming it into His image.
1Co 2:10 But God has revealed (the wisdom of God hidden in a mystery v.7) to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
Jas 1:21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
Rom 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Because there are only two ways for us to walk:
To get serious, press in to the revelation of the Word and kill the flesh through it:
Rev 3:21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
Or to keep living the way we want in the flesh:
Rom 2:8 but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,
Rom 2:9 tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;
Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
Rev 6:16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
Rev 6:17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Scripture confirms that all will be rewarded according to their own choice:
Jer 17:10 I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
