Rick Joyner: People Who Know Their God will Display Strength and Take Action

As mentioned previously, The Holy Spirit is "the Helper" not "the Doer." He will do His part, but He expects us to do ours. It is good to be able to recognize the work of the Holy Spirit, but we must not stop there. We must go on to seek Him for what our part is and then do it.
We cannot be the salt and light we are called to be without being engaged in these times. Jesus called those who were more devoted to understanding the weather than the signs of the times "hypocrites." To be the light we are called to be, it is crucial that we understand these times.
Because the Spirit "searches all things, even the depths of God" (see 1 Corinthians 2:10), no one who is truly led by the Spirit will be shallow in their understanding. If we are led by the Spirit, we will love the truth enough to seek it out. We will be compelled to have a depth to our knowledge.

Even if we are convinced that the rapture will spare us from the Great Tribulation, what the Lord Himself prophesied as "the beginning of birth pangs" (see Matthew 24:8) should be enough to motivate us to prepare for difficulties. However, our preparation for the times is not just for survival, but also for doing our part as laborers in the greatest harvest the world will ever see.

Display Strength and Take Action
In Daniel 11:32 we see that when "the abomination of desolation" is being set up, "the people who know their God will display strength and take action." We are not here to cower nor hoard. We are not only to seek safety for ourselves, but we are here to prepare the way for the coming Kingdom. Those who are truly following the King will display strength and take action.

The world is getting darker, fast. However, we are here for a reason. In times of greater darkness, greater light is needed and will be given. As deep darkness covers the earth, it will be our greatest opportunity of all time to walk with God and be His messengers.

Do you have the message? Are you beholding the glory of the Lord? Can others behold His glory on you?
We are told in 2 Corinthians 3 that we should be experiencing more glory than Moses did. We have a better covenant than Moses had. We can have a closer relationship to God than Moses did, and Moses met with Him face to face. Even so, and much better than that, He has come to live in us! He never leaves us.
Do we see the One who lives within us? Do we see His glory? If we do, others will see it in us.

I am sorry. I heard rick joyner and Christian harfouche mention the neglect and abuse of Apostles and Prophets by churches and leaders last year. Yet to my knowledge neither will teach on the results of that. That's fine in greek concerning apostles and prophets if memory serves persecute means separate from the whole. and although God # the offices and the first three are used over 100 times in the bible pastor and evangelist 5 the bible does warn against despisers of government. in 20 years I have only ever heard of two churches and ministers who even come close to functioning in the Flow at Gods direction resulting in a very close manner to 1st Corinthians. If God is not welcome to move thru His people in churches. The minister tries to fufill what it takes 5 ministries to do. well the above post really neglects a whole lot of foundational problems. I say this in respect paul said I would not be an apostle if I was out to be popular and please people. It is evident somewhere and somehow apostles and prophets should be addressing the church and it's other ministries. where are they ? this day will be drawn short lest the elect be deceived. as it was in the days of noah and the confrontation with jannes and jambere in Egypt it is said in the new testament it is going to be soon. Jesus said whom I love I rebuke and the Father loves enough to chasten. I have seen this website speak out in balance and a few others but as far as nationional men love enough to rebuke correct and instruct in any manner that will bring needed correction NO.
