There are some vital Scripture passages that come up today. This is from Haggai 2: “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this [d]temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The glory of this latter [e]temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
The Lord is shaking the earth today, and He is shaking nations. And today this is the season of shaking the earth and the nations. When He starts shaking the heaven it will be much more frightful, and He will shake nations. When demonization begins that you never dreamed of. People will become demonized much greater, hundreds and thousand times, when people in the streats will kill for Christ – they will hate Him so much. Then it will be the time of shaking the earth, because powers will come out of hell and will fill the people.
But today He is shaking nations in order to fill the earth with His glory. You know, we used to think, including myself that «to fill the earth with His Glory» means that all who call themselves Christians will be ignited by the fire of Pentacost. And today many, 90 % of Christians, think so. But when small fireplaces start burning and enter the true Gospel of Christ, and the rest, which is the false Bride, falls off like chaff, this is also the filling of the House with the glory. Filling the House with the glory doesn't mean crowds, but true genuine saved ones. This is what the House glory means. Why wouldn't He fill this house with glory and say that here it's being fulfilled. And what do you think it means «I will fill the House with glory»? Should everyone have arms grow, who has no eye will have his eye grow? And we have dragged everything down to healing. It's written that «God's glory manifested in the healing of the sick». The power of God manifested in the healing of the sick, but it also manifested in God's wisdom. It manifested on the Cross when He was hanging and didn't deny. It manifested in Sardis or among those who were in tribulations for about ten days and were faithful to death. These are all manifestations of God's glory, when the truth of God sounds in the House of God isn't that glory? There is glory of power, glory of faith, glory of truth, glory of Christ's Blood, glory of healing, glory of Christ's cross – these are manifestations of God's glory.
So, this is happening so that this house will be filled with glory.
And when we see those chairs with people's photograph – what is this priest doing? What does the priest do when he asks people to send their photographs by computer, then he prints them out, and whoever has sent his photo is granted to be in the service. Whoever hasn't sent one – simply slacked off. It is really like an «absent» mark for a person. And the man is absent again and again and again, missing communion, missing salvation – he is a D-student in faith. A person can be sick or in other circumstance. But what is this person doing with photographs on the chairs? If you haven't seen it, in one Italian church they asked people to send their photographs, the priest printed them out and put them on the backs of the chairs and preached to those portraits. What was he doing when preaching to the portraits? He allowed people to remain in unbelief in their homes and identified it as their salvation. That is, he took salvation, the bar, and lowered it down to their rutine life. That you can continue living the way you do – you are still saved, I have worked on this. He used modern technologies to keep people in unbelief instead of raising them up? Do you see?
I heard of one baptiser baptising people in a diving suit. It wasn't evene in the ice whole, just the water was cold. A church pastor puts on his diving suit, because dear himself must feel warm, I don't know if he put some extra ointment. Well, he goes into the water like this, and a lamb of the Lord, which is entereing the Kingdom, enters this cold water in just a white robe, then he plunges her; then they walk out and each one changes his own clothes. This is they way many things look like when we are going through tests today. One soul came to us saying she didn't want to stay in her church because she was baptised by one in a diving suit.
Another Scripture place is Daniel 2, Nebuchadnezzar's vision.
«And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, - that is Roman Empire was the fourth kingdom, now it is the fifth kingdom - partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.»
Today Europe mixed in blood, but not joined. Whoever was there, you pass the border, say from Germany to France, you pass it not knowing where the border was, but all the surroundings change, the language changes, architecture changes, and you realize you are in a different country, but you didn't see the border.
And today God is preserving the nations. He is shaking all again, and each one takes its own cell. He is shaking His nations so that they all can take again their own cells. They are overfilling, like popcorn stuffing the whole bucket, but each piece is supposed to have its own cell. And He is shaking, shaking, shaking – and Italy again becomes Italy, France becomes France, Germany, Russia, all the countries are having their own people return and don't let anyone else in. Do you see? How could it be possible to do such a thing by a war? No way. A war isn't able to fulfill this. How could this be done by economical ways? No chance. Because, look, number one inn coronavirus today is the richest country in the world, they left all the other behind. The counrty scolded all the other. And she is the proudest, richest and coolest with the highest living level. But today this country is number one in coronavirus, in death, it's most dangerous in jails; megacities full of gangs. Just think what's happening. I am not the one scolding countries – this is no good, especially in your owm country. But we are watching something serious today.
And this prophecy of Daniel, that He is having the nations return to Him, to their identity. Do you see that? – So that the nations gather to receive the stone.
And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms – do you hear that? - and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold – it was not done by man's hand, not by the prayer houses that we build for the Lord, not by great preachers, not by the Bible schools – not by hands! - the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”
We still have to learn to recieve dreams from the Gentiles. Pharoah saw dreams and Joseph interpreted them for him. The greatest sinner on earth, the gold head of sin, Nebuchadnezzar, saw a dream, and Daniel interpreted.
Today, dear brothers and sisters, God is giving identity to nations with their land and their culture, so that they receive the stone. God doesn't like globolization. Globolization is the antichrist system. Mixing everything together, first of all that all the roads lead to God, that all gods are up to your choice, it's normal; and to mix cultures as means to crawl near the confusion, and to errect again the unfinished tower called Babel for the sake of make themselves a name. And he will be doing this and will partly succeed, but God shall come and crush him.
What is this all about?
But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: blood and fire and vapor of smoke. the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’
We need prayer for the awakening. Do you see, «on all flesh» doesn't mean on everybody. «On all flesh» means both on transvestites, and on transsexuals, and on dead bishops, and on the Pope, and on the Partriarch, and on the simple devorced ones, on those disciplined till the second coming. «All flesh» - you come into a different perspective: and on atheistic Jews, and on an American pastor, who doesn't have the salvation, and on the Russian bishop, who hasn't lost salvation. He will pour out His Spirit on a different kind of people, He will choose His own people, and they will prophesy with their lives and signs, and young men, and new converts, and the very young who have no succession, who are born after the order of Melchizedek, somewhere in the wilderness of this world, in the wilderness of sin, in megacities, somewhere in a cafe or in a drug taking place a movement will be born, and the Spirit will be poured out there, the Spirit will find His own people, and it will be the Holy Spirit virus. Right now this virus is entering everywhere, like the Angel destroyer came into the house of Pharaoh, and he is taking out of the officials, out of the White House, he is taking our officials from the Kremlin. And he has a human face, and its torment is like the torment of a scorpion. It's absolutely so. Human face means he has his own intellect. If you have a look at this – best psychologists at gathering together will see that this is a highly intellectual individual. This virus is superhuman. And he has a motivation to have us understand something. As if the invisible man, he is taking us to something that we all must understand. Therefore, gentlemen, and brothers and sisters, all the people on earth, understand, why it's been sent. Understand! You say, what is then the way out? Polititians don't understand this, powerful men of the world don't want to hear this. You start with yourself. And there a downcount begins. The whole thing starts not from up there, where everything falls down, but it will start from down there where we lost it all. It will start from the individual up to the global thing. There is the destiny of the world in your hands today. In yours and mine, do you hear?
Therefore, these three keys we must take today, and three steps and positions we must have now in church. The first is to sanctify ourselves. Sanctify ourselves, says the Lord, and I will take you into an encounter, so prepare yourselves. Get sanctified, because without holiness no one shall see the Lord.
Second thing – enter in Love. The church of Philadelphia is the church of love. Today we must shake off every offence, every debt, everything that we have in our stubornness and come into love. This is done instantly. You enter into forgiveness and transfer into love, instantly, within one second you can enter into God's love.
There are things that you can loose and you can return to, but it's impossible to enter into Christ without them. First thing – we can loose the First Love. But we can return to it. Second, we can loose purity. And it seems impossible to restore purity. A young lady, a former prostitute that is getting marries with a bride's veil? Listen, after five, ten, fifteen years of your occupation you put on a bride's veil on your head? Yes. Because there was the point of death and transition. And the question isn not in the past, but that now you are in the covenant, and you will never break it. And it happens through a vow, through a renewal of the covenant. This is why they used vows in the Old Testament. This is the point of renewing your covenant. You lost your covenant, you broke it, but you renew it and give a vow. Thus you walk back in purity that you lost. And starting this point you are a new person again. Some of us indeed lost it, you were in the bottom of the pit, maybe even worse than when you were in the world. Some others are on the serface of the pit thinking they are better than others when they look down, but they are also in the pit of sin, religious sin. No First Love – what kind of holiness are you talking about? How can there be holiness without love? No prayer, no love for the Lord, no abiding in the Word of God – what love are you talking about? The church is rescuing you, pulling you out? – All right then, but this is not enough. You have to stand before Him in the judgment. The church won't stand for you, you have to stand before Him in the judgment, when He judges you.
And the third position that we must take today is evangelism. Evangelism. Now we have to interprete to this world, what is going on. It is NOW, when they are shaking and sitting, churches are locked up, and people peer out of their windows thinking «who can answer the question , what is gooing on?!» Church? But the light there is put out, and people there are also afraid. Church, like everyone else, is talking about the pandemic. Where are people to find the answer? They rush to doctors, to scholars and begin saving themselves by locking up and shutting all the windows and shaking in a dark corner. This doesn't save! Evangelists must come, who are able to walk through the walls and windows, who climb over the fences and enter in all over to tell what is happening. You and I must awaken and now, as never before, preach the Gospel to people. If we keep silent now, we shall be guilty of their deaths. If we keep silent now, then this sward shall consume us. This is why the virus enters in such churches and touches their people. This is why he enters in churches and consumes people, because they are exactly like this world. They are as much afarid and shaking, and keep telling stories about the testing tubes and labs. And where is then the Living God?! Where are the voices that are calling for faith? What is that priest speaking of? About hope?! What is he telling those empty chairs? That they are also saved? I don't know what his sermon is about. But he must release them for evangelism and go himself and preach the Gospel! I don't know what the Pope is speaking of, not interested. For me this is a sign. The virus has come into Rome and made believers shut up, with their pastor leading. What shall we do here with you? We must draw the spirit of Pentacost. And here this House must be filled with glory. And from here mission and evangelism must come forth. Reinforce and begin acting!
