On my way home, driving in the car, I could see a swell of fog blanketing the road ahead. In the distance, everything familiar and to come was covered by a thick cloud of smoke. It was growing in strength as distance went on, because everything just a few feet from the start, was invisible. As if someone had pulled a Houdini and created an illusion with giant mirrors. It was getting closer now, and the edges of the road I was now on were covered. Grass and the edges of the road remained hidden, and only the central point of the street was clear enough to maneuver.
I slowed a bit, knowing to be safe, my eyes would have to adjust. Moments later I was approaching the thickest portion. The fog came at the car windshield like an oncoming truck. It smacked right into the glass, causing me to dodge back as if it could penetrate the glass. But it couldn't. Quickly everything was covered in pale white and gray. What I once knew out of routine and familiarity, was gone and replaced with moisture in the form of gas.
Only a few feet in front of the car hood was visible. It's dangerous. And scary. And hard as a human to grasp only seeing for a few steps.
But that's exactly what we need to do. That's exactly what we have to do.
As I sat at the barely seen red light, waiting for my turn to make a left, I felt like God was revealing His strategy for our city. For our nation. Our families. And the globe.
He's covering the earth, like fog.
His spirit is descending and it's rising and growing in intensity all around us. It will get to a place where it smacks us in the face if we aren't closely watching and waiting. And it will only grow stronger. It will only grow thicker and more intense. He's already pouring out His Spirit on Cape Coral, and Lee county, and Florida, and North America, and the Earth- but whether you can see it or not is dependent on your spiritual eyes.
There's coming a day when regardless of what you choose to see- it will be so thick and so heavy and so great that you won't be able to mistake it.
It's scary to our flesh. Our natural selves panic because it requires us to walk by faith. You cannot see much of what is ahead. Only rest in what is immediately before you- knowing victory is on the other side.
Don't be fooled by what is seen. Because soon you won't be able to see anything except the Spirit, and it will be hovering over the earth.
The Bible talks about Jesus' return being as "in the days of Noah". What does that even mean? It means things will be similar to what happened immediately preceding the flood. As a sign and a warning to people.
I truly believe that part of that has to do with Gods spirit hovering over the earth. Just as His spirit hovered over the waters of the deep. So He is hovering over our city and homes.
His word says He will pour out His spirit on ALL flesh- or people- in the last days. And that people will dream dreams, and have visions, and prophesy. And I believe that this is all part of the prelude to His return. I don't know if it will be tomorrow. I don't know if it will be next week, or next year. But I can tell you it's coming. And it's coming soon.
For those of you who have been ready any or all of my posts, thanks for continuing to read. But the goal isn't that I get a bazillion subscribers to the blog. The goal is to make Jesus famous.
If you don't know Him, and want to- the God who heals, who saves, who makes us new, who hovers over and pours out His spirit, I beg you to welcome Him into your everyday- today.
It's not a complicated thing. It just takes you- talking to Him- and saying "I'm wrong. You're right. You rule over me. I'll follow."
Ask Him to forgive you. Since we've all made mistakes and screwed up in life. He will make you fresher than fresh.
Ask Him to be Lord. That means you give up control and the right to be right, and allow Him and His word to be the standard for your day to day.
Ask the Spirit to reside in you. It means allowing His Holy Spirit to empower you, since there's no way in the works you can do it on your own.
And He will.
He will do it. Just because He's good. He wants to cover you with His love and His goodness. So let Him.
And for those of you who already know Him, open up your eyes...cause He's hovering, yo.
