The End Time Move of the Holy Spirit:
There is a dimension of God that is reserved for the period just before The Church leaves this world. And this dimension will be ushered in by the Latter and the Former rain.
Three rains are prophesied of in the Bible:
1. Former Rain
2. Latter Rain
3. Former and latter rain together
It is the Former and the Latter rain together that is called the end time move of the Holy Spirit.
WHAT IS THE FORMER RAIN?
The Former rain as far as the Jewish history is concerned, is the rain that softens the ground for the planting season. This happened at Pentecost.
WHAT IS THE LATTER RAIN?
The Latter rain is the rain that prepares the ground for the harvest. This happened during the outpouring of the Holy Ghost at Azusa street revival in 1904. But there is a rain that is a combination rain— a combination of the Former and the Latter rains put together that will eventually invade the earth. It is called The end time move of the Holy Spirit.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE END TIME MOVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
1. THE INVASION OF HEAVEN ON EARTH
The first characteristics of the end time move of the Holy Spirit is the invasion of Heaven on earth. It is a situation where Heaven literally kisses the earth. It is a condition in which it appears, as it were, that God comes down from Heaven and He is on ground at work here on earth.
I will like to show you a few passages.
10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.11Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
There is a move of God that is coming, in which Heaven will appear as if it is temporarily headquartered on earth. Look with me again at Exodus 3:7
And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; 8 And I am come down….
The coming down of God is what is called ‘Revival’! ‘And I AM come down’. God didn’t say ‘ I Am going to send somebody.’ No, He said ‘…I am come down.’ Very few times would God say “I came down!” But in the end time move of the Holy Ghost, we shall see Jehovah come down in the form of the Holy Spirit and moving with the host of Heaven.
The end time move of the Holy Spirit is the move of God in which God literally takes over and the pastor becomes a spectator.
Look again at Habakkuk Chapter 3 as we define these concepts.
A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. 2O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.
What was the man asking for? ‘…revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make yourself known; in wrath remember mercy.
In answer to that, what did he get in verse 3?
God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.4And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.
What is the matter in question? We have countless churches in this world where the pastors are in charge; where Jehovah is a stranger; where the Holy Ghost is begging to work. But in the move of God that we are talking about, the pastor is a spectator, the minister-in-charge is a stranger. There is only one person that will be seen, only one Person will be noticed and that is the Almighty!
THERE WILL BE AN ERUPTION OF THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD!
When Jehovah visited Egypt, it was not Moses that was the centre of attraction.
This is the point: A time is coming shortly and I will not be surprised if it starts with you as a result of the impartation you are going to get from reading this book, in which there will be such an eruption of the manifestation of Jehovah.
Can you remember what happened when the veil of the temple was torn into two? (Matt 27:51-52) The Presence of Jehovah that was trapped in the Holy of Holies came out of that place and confronted creation!
Look again at the book of Isaiah 64:1
Oh that thou wouldest rend (tear) the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains (that is the oppositions) might flow down at thy presence,2As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! (Isa 64:1-2 Emphasis Mine)
We have a generation that has not yet trembled because the Heavens have not yet been shattered. In the move of God that is coming, God will literally split the heavens and step into operation with the host of Heaven to show the world who owns the earth!
A time is going to come (and very shortly it will happen) when a pastor will stand to minister and the Holy Spirit will say: “Excuse me.” The pastor will go off under the Anointing for the next two to three hours, unaware of what is going on, while Jehovah takes charge of the service with unusual eruptions. Things that the unbelief of the pastor won’t allow God to do, will be done by God while the pastor is off the scene. ‘Oh that Thou wouldest (tear) the heavens….(paraphrased)
In 2 Chronicles Chapter 5, the move of God came as the priests were ministering:
It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord;14So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
2 Chron. 5:13-14
So, a time will come when the minister will lack the capacity to stand and minister; where the One Who owns the ministry will step in to minister and any pastor who struggles for the microphone with the Owner of the church may sleep and wake up in eternity! Any pastor who struggles for the microphone with the Owner of the church may not awake.
Don’t forget this: The end time move of the Holy Spirit is the invasion of Heaven on earth.
