How Shall We Respond?

Teaching Overview

Last week, we saw that the end-time harvest will be the best of times and the worst of times all at the same time! The time we are quickly moving toward will be the church’s finest hour, for God will pour out His Spirit and release a worldwide revival with massive salvations, signs, wonders, and miracles. But the harvest of righteousness is far greater than this. God will fulfill His eternal purpose for the Church Age, which entails the birth of the man-child, the completion of the first-fruits harvest, and the final and ultimate ingathering. God will have an inheritance in the saints—a family of Christ-like sons, a worthy bride for Jesus Christ, and a temple that the Holy Spirit fills unto fullness. At the very same time, it will be the darkest hour in the world. The tares will mature into a global city known as “Babylon the Great.” This New World Order comprised of a one-world government, a one-world economy, and a one-world religion will enslave the world, ultimately leading to the antichrist and his kingdom of totalitarian oppression, war, a state-controlled economy, and great destruction. The hour is urgent to prepare ourselves for the greatest move of God and the greatest move of Satan in history, which will lead to the return of the Lord and His glorious appearing. Given the urgency of the hour, how shall we respond? In this message, we look at eight responses that the Lord is looking for from us so that we can be ready for what is coming. Specifically, we need to: Wake up to the urgency of the hour; exchange independence for corporate interdependence; be part of an army that will help fulfill God’s eternal purpose; close the door to the accuser by taking this season serious; start the life-long journey of following the Lamb wherever He goes; accept, pay attention to, take seriously, and humble our hearts to what God is speaking corporately; align ourselves with God’s timing; and renew our commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
