King James Version (KJV)
19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.|
WAKE UP PROPHETS, AND SPEAK WORDS OF RESTORATION, REFRESHING AND RESTITUTION, AND STOP SPEAKING THE PLANS OF SATAN THAT COME FROM THE SECOND HEAVEN.
Verse 19: Repent means to stop, look, listen and turn from your wicked ways.
It says to be converted, which means to be completely transformed so that all of your sins will be blotted out.
Verse 19b: Tells us what will happen if we, God’s beloved people will just do the above. It is wonderful!
Times of refreshing will come. From where? From the Presence of The Lord of the universe. How awesome is that?
Verse 20: Then, Jesus Christ Himself will be sent to you.
Verse 21: In short, The Lord Jesus Christ will not come back until the times of restitution of all things has been fulfilled. These things are all of the words that God speaks through His holy prophets since the world began.
God’s restitution is awesome. It involves magnification, multiplication, renovation and the renewal of all things that He has spoken.
God’s Words formed the earth and everything in it, and His Words are all-powerful.
God’s Words are always redemptive in nature. His Words always provide hope for His people.
He even gave Jezebel and Ninevah space, time and the ability to repent. In short,
God is extremely merciful and His mercies is from everlasting to everlasting.
His people and especially His “prophets” should never speak words of total doom and gloom concerning a person, a people, a country or the world. Where there is life; there is hope.
God spoke words like: “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven’.
He told us that we have been given all authority over the enemy, and nothing will by any means harm us.
We are told to occupy until He comes. We are told to stand strong. We are told to take back the territory like Joshua and Caleb through spiritual warfare, because our weapons are not carnal, but they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
We are told that we must judge in the church because we will be judging angels (1 Cor.6).
We are told that the God of Peace will soon crush satan under our feet. We are more than conquerors. We are told that no liars, wicked or cowardly people will be allowed in heaven.
My advice is that if God Himself did not tell you to flee; you could be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.
What is coming that is being reported by some “prophets” will be all over the world, and the shaking will shake everything that is not of God. If God is your ever present refuge; you do not need to have any fear at all (Psalm 91).
If God leads us to move; then we should move. If He tells you to flee; then flee.
However, to do anything in fear could lead to disaster as fear activates satan.
To be controlled by fear is very dangerous to your health and welfare. Fear and doubt are two of Satan’s greatest weapons.
Trust in The Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, and in all yours ways acknowledge God, and He will direct your paths (from Pr. 3:5-6).
I keep hearing some very drastic, hopeless and terrifying words going out over the Internet that are being spoken by “Christians” and those who consider themselves, prophets, watchers, etc.
These Words of total doom and gloom are causing many Christians to become confused and dismayed.
However, if these Christians would just go to their Bibles and wipe the dust off of them; they will find new hope, new faith and new courage to forge ahead in victory.
God does always warn His people about impending disasters, but He always gives them hope for the future.
One example of how The Lord talks to even His most rebellious people is the famous Scripture: “If My people that are called by My Name will humble themselves, pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their lands”.
Ninevah was told that they would be destroy if they did not repent, and they repented down to the cattle. Ninevah was one of the most wicked cities on earth at the time.
THE WAY OF THE LORD IS GREATLY MERCIFUL AND REDEMPTIVE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE:
Sodom and Gomorrah:
Abraham was trying to plead with The Lord for Sodom and Gomorrah as shown below from Gen. 18:32:
32 “And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Per adventure ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake. 33 And the LORD went His way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.”
In short, if there had been ten righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah; The Lord will have spared these cities, but there not even ten righteous there.
How generous is God’s great mercy and kindness. However, God is merciful, kind and loving, but He is also very severe, and He loves justice. He always gives every opportunity and time to repent, but in the final analysis; He will bring judgement to those who continue to rebel against almighty God and His commandments.
Many people throughout history have chosen to go against God and all of His commandments, and His Word. However, we have not learned from history, and so we are having to repeat it over and over.
The Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Mayan, and all other societies that turned to idols, and who sacrificed their children have come to nothing, and they are no longer in existence.
I heard that there are 27 million people being victimized in the human trafficking racket. There are countless pedophile rings where children are caged, raped, tortured and are put in snuff films and kiddy porn.
Many of the customers are people who have the authority to stop this evil. Huge amounts of money are made off of the ruined lives of the innocent.
If the Christians would pray the below prayers; God can expose, stop and prosecute these crimes against the innocent.
The new crime areas are our own neighborhoods, and local areas that have covert activities going on covertly. These areas are being used to make money, corrupt the people and to destroy our country and our people.
There are pedophile rings and porn production going on all over our local areas in the homes, the businesses and the buildings. It is all done completely hidden. Crimes include: pedophile rings, human trafficking, kiddy porn production, kiddy snuff films, meth labs, id theft, gang stalking and the list can go on and on.
These criminals and their handlers use any space that they can control. They love to use areas that seem very normal, and they can have profitable rackets going on (even in the attics, etc.).
It is all done very secretly and it is very evil because innocent children, adults and animals are used in the most unspeakable ways.
Please expose all of the evil deeds of darkness in our area, our country and even all over the world.
Please destroy these works of Satan, and set these captives free from their greed, sexual addictions and sadism.
Please protect, heal and deliver the innocent, babies, children, and adults that are captive. Please protect all of the innocent blood from this evil (even the animals that are used).
Please bring justice for all, and please bring an end to this evil in our area, our country and the world.
Please bring everything that is being hidden, covered up and white washed out in the open, and please set all of the captives free (both the perpetrators and the victims) in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen and amen.
The church must use the power of prayer and their authority today and before it is too late.
As we pray the Scriptures and the will and the Word of God; He will hear from heaven, and He will bring His Kingdom into our midst and on this earth as it is in heaven. Hallelujah!
