There is something new around the corner. Something's about to burst open in this world. The rumble beneath the earth is the sound of evil scrambling. Fighting harder to stay prevalent, relevant.
But it will not prevail.
We have a promise, from One who has yet to break a single promise, that even the fiery gates of hell itself cannot eliminate.
"This is the rock on which I (Jesus) will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.
And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth, earth and heaven. A yes on earth is yes in heaven. A no on earth is no in heaven."
(Matthew 16:18-19 MSG)
Another translation says,
"I (Jesus) will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it].
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven."
(Matthew 16:18-19 AMP)
Meaning, there is nothing that will keep the movement of the Spirit, through the vehicle of the Church, from churning faster and faster and faster.
Restoration is God's plan. Redemption. Salvation will be had for the earth and those who dwell in it.
Something is coming.
Something is awakening.
The ground is breaking and light is bursting forth, even brighter today than it was yesterday.
Look for it and I promise, you will find it.
