I just recorded a prophetic perspective this past Sunday that the Lord began downloading on August 31, 2017. On that day, while out for my usual twice daily prayer walk, the Lord spoke, “Beginning October 1 (the day after Yom Kippur), you will be entering the final season of My restoration, and it will be known as ‘The Days of Recompense’”. For those who are interested, you can listen to the entire perspective free on our website by clicking here.
The Lord is going to restore all that has been lost, stolen, destroyed, perverted, etc, during these coming days to those who have faithfully persevered in obedience to the Lord, albeit a tremendous struggle and war over the last 6-10 years. All that the enemy has touched, including reputation and relationships, will be restored seven-fold (see Proverbs 6:30-31). All that has been willingly laid down or sacrificed for His name’s sake, will be restored 100-fold (Matt. 19:29-30). There will be “recompense”. But this also means that whatever we have sown in unrighteousness, unless repented of and restitution made, will bring a reaping, also. We must make things right! Psalm 118:19-20 states that the “gate” that the presence of the Lord enters into this natural sphere is the “gate of righteousness”. This is a spiritual “gate” that must be established before His presence can manifest in the natural realm. This includes judicial righteousness secured for us through the cross, but also includes experiential righteousness worked in and through the life of the believer through yielding to the leading and Lordship of the Spirit of God. This experiential righteousness BEGINS with confession and repentance, but must include restitution or the Lord would be unjust and unrighteous in blessing us while we still live in sin and rebellion. NOW is the time to make things right so the full grace, power and provision of the Lord can be released.
Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, ‘I am strong.'” Assemble and come, all you nations, and gather together all around. Cause Your mighty ones to go down there, O LORD. “Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, go down; for the winepress is full, the vats overflow– for their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. – Joel 3:9-14
Believers are presently being exercised to make decisions, and not to have them made for us as children. We are faced with decisions that will have far-reaching and powerful effects and consequences now and in the ensuing weeks, months and years.
The war between light and darkness has raged from the beginning of time, but now is escalating at an unprecedented rate of speed as it draws everyone into the fray. Soon we all will be forced to choose sides and fully engage. What we have watched and witnessed from a distance will soon come knocking on our door. In relative apathy and silence, we have allowed darkness to encroach and shroud every aspect of society. Now the lines of demarcation will clearly delineate the two emerging, opposing global forces: Zion and Babylon. Catastrophic and cataclysmic events will reveal the best and worst which reside within all of mankind. World shaking events will expose the weaknesses of every structure we have tried to invent and erect. What we have been able to cleverly disguise and hide behind will be brought out into plain view for all to see. Who we are and what we believe will be clear to everyone. What is the nature of these two global powerhouses: Zion and Babylon? To whom will you align?
