Can You Feel It?
You could feel it in the air. You could just smell the difference in the aroma outside. You could feel the changing of barometric pressure. You could look at the clouds and tell that there was something changing.
That was the weather change yesterday afternoon as the sunshine gave way to dark ominous clouds over my office here in Little Rock. On March 13th we experienced several very compact storm cells which swept across the state of Arkansas. Fortunately there have been no deaths or even serious injuries reported so far. But the change in the weather was incredibly obvious. You did not need to be an amateur weather bug type person to know that something was brewing and it had the great likelihood to be very big. Sure enough, several severe storm cells ripped their way across the state, tornadoes in tow, spewing our ice chunks at times the size of tennis balls. Winds recorded in the 70 mph range accompanied by torrential downpours were common with each of these storm cells.
Well, I am not a weather forecaster so I will leave the storm tracking to the professionals. However, I have been given the task of watching for changes in the Spiritual climate and spreading the news of what is coming. Lately I have been keeping my eye on the spiritual changes which are going on around us. There are very strong indicators that God is up to something big. Churches who have struggles for years are now seeing people come into the building and flood to the altars. A church not far from me is, for the first time in many years, now experiencing a strong move of the Holy Spirit in their services with lives being obviously changed. Last night while I was watching the storm outside the window of my office a friend of mine was preaching in his church and had a staunch member of a cult run to the altar to receive forgiveness and turn his life over into the hands of Jesus.
Just as the meteorologist can look at the radar and weather data and predict that a storm is brewing I can look at the signs around us all and tell that there is something happening in the realm of the Spirit. It is really happening and the time is now!
There is a spirit of revival beginning to sweep our nation! This should serve as a call for all of God’s people to turn up the heat in prayer and study to prepare themselves for whatever is ahead. Jesus is coming quickly! Let those who have an ear to hear listen and make themselves ready!
Serving Him by Serving You,
