For the discerning, the first churches where Jesus Christ alone is exalted as God, and resurrected Savior is no more. The churches in Jerusalem, Asia minor, Syria and Persia is no more, wiped out by the Ottomans and Persian Shahs. The Holy of Holies, the 2nd temple is destroyed, and buried under a big dome. The expansion to the East was wiped out by the barbarian Mongols/ Tatars. The early church in Rome absorbed into the Roman Empire by AD 313, with all the pagan cultic practices embedded within included Cybele, the Sun gods, and the Gnostics. We are 2 days, or 2,000 years after the founding of the church in the upper room. A great shaking and revival is coming, of churches, faiths, nations, empires before the coming back of Jesus Christ that justice may prevail, peace in Jerusalem, and the name of Jesus Christ glorified.
The First Congress of Zion happened in the Jewish diaspora Europe in Aug 1897. It was more 1760 years from the Bar Kokhba revolt which ended in 136 CE whereby the name of Judea was wiped out by Rome and replaced by Syria Palaestinia by Emperor Hadrian (the anti-christ who sat at the Holy of Holies). The Ottomans had ruled Jerusalem since 1517 taking over from Mamluk of Egypt which had ruled since 1250, and had earlier conquered Constantinople (in 1453) and the Balkans.
Four hundred years later, the return, the bud in the fig tree was the First Zionist conference in 1897, and it led 20 years later to the return of Jerusalem to the British in 1917 (exactly 400 years from Ottoman taking over from Mamluk), and the Charismatic Pentecostal revival at Azusa Street revival in 1905. A new season is coming, 120 years after the First Congress which will shake the nations that had once conquered Jerusalem that peace may return to Jerusalem and her captives set free.
The evangelical charismatic church is one full generation of 120 years from the Azusa Street revival, and more than 10 x 50 years from the Reformation in 1517. There will be incredible upheaval in the next 5 to 7 years, as we near the end of 120 years from the First Congress of Zion of 1897, for God is dividing the weeds and the wheat so that harvest will come, ie the rapture of the true church/Christians.
Mat 13: 27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ 28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ 29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”
For since the foundation of the church in AD33 in the upper room, and the church hierarchal in Rome in the Edict of Milan in 313AD, Satan has sowed much weeds in the church. The harvest time is coming, and God is removing the weeds from the church. Weeds choke the church because the Gospel Good News is diluted. Man is exalted as father, and Jesus Christ is relegated to a little baby child or left hanging at the Cross of Calvary. Jesus Christ is coming back, and He is not coming back for the church in the current state, but a spotless white bride.
How did the enemy come into the church to plant weeds? The enemy is Satan, and he plants the anti-Christ, the theology where Jesus Christ is de-elevated. For many Christians, Jesus Christ is no longer the way, the truth and the life to God. In many Christian denominations, the power of heaven and earth is said to be given to earthly co-redeemers. Some pray to the Saints, and to Mary, or even some angelic beings. Jesus Christ becomes a good person in some Christian faith, and no longer the Son of God, nor of virgin birth, nor of resurrection. Over a period of 1900 years, the complete works at the Cross is de-emphasized. Christianity becomes a label rather than faith in the finished work at the Cross of Calvary for salvation in Christ alone. We are said to be Christians because we label ourselves as such rather than fundamental salvation by faith alone, the solas of the Martin Luther reformation.
Yet, for 2,000 years, since the resurrection of Jesus Christ and foundation of the church in AD33, that the weeds (the teachings of the anti-christ) is mixed with the wheat. The reason is that in any church there are many different beliefs, even worshiping of darkness and anti Christ heresies in the midst of proclaiming that they are the body of Christ. The weeds hold back the churches and takes away resurrection power because corruption is mixed with the pure and holy before God.
An example, is that the charismatic evangelical revival in the 1960s in Singapore came not out of the Pentecostals, or the gospel halls, but out of Fr Dennis Bennett. of the very liberal St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Van Nuys, California. He was sacked by the church after his holy spirit baptism. Therefore, out of a liberal church, God used, to bring the charismatic evangelical revival to Singapore whom we have many of the mega churches.
We have 50 years of grace or 5 x 10 years of the Holy Spirit revival since 1967 to 2017, the year when Jerusalem came back to the Jews. The fullness of God’s grace for revival upon the church has come. But the harvest time is now becoming, the end of time of Jesus’ return. Therefore, there will be a great rupture and judgement upon the churches where the weeds will be uprooted and burned away, ie separated from consecrated. There will be great divisions and splits in the church. The Episcopal churches, UK Anglican and the UCC church has been declining steeply since 1967 because the Holy Spirit of God is taken from these liberal churches, and they are plucked out from the name of Christ.
The Christian church which represents Jesus Christ has been greatly tarnished. There is a shaking coming in US/Europe/ Roman Empire and her universal churches for her part in the diaspora of the Jewish people from Jerusalem and at Bar Kokhba. Even the US under Biden is now supporting the division of Israel hence removing God’s hand of grace from this great nation, whose ancient sects/temples from their European past are so steeped in the ancient worship of the Sun God. The sacking of Constantinople (in AD 1204) in the 4th crusade by the universal church thus weakening the Eastern church which changed history will be avenged with a return of the East against the West. Jesus Christ is coming back, and He is purifying His church for the glory of His name, and it will start with Rome and her offspring of numerous heretical denominations.
After 2 days or 2,000 years since 33 AD, the church is being rebuilt so that the precious name of Jesus Christ might be glorified, and the name of Jesus Christ lifted high above all names, powers, and principalities. There will be massive shaking where nations, churches, and empires will fall within a very short period in the West and East, so that the weeds will be burned and separated from the wheat unto harvest time, at the same time, the ancient captives of Jerusalem will be finally set free and justice avenged.
For I am building a people of power
And I am making a people of praise
That will move through this land by My Spirit
And will glorify My precious name
Build your Church Lord
Make us strong Lord
Join our hearts Lord through your son
Make us one Lord
In your Body
In the kingdom of your son
