The Bible clearly teaches that the times are going to get more evil as the days go by (see II Tim. 3:1-13). However, the Bible also prophesies that the end-time Church will have God’s visible, tangible glory upon it!
That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish
There is a great revival coming upon the face of the earth! Great signs and wonders will be done by God’s people. Jesus hasn’t been spending the last two-thousand years building something that is going to be worse off than when He started. God has saved His best wine for last! What we read in the Book of Acts will pale in comparison with this mighty outpouring. God will use all who are available and willing. He will bypass many that are set in their own ways. Many who were thought to be Generals will turn out to be privates; many who seemed to be privates will be raised up as Generals. Why? Because of obedience to the Commander in Chief.
The LORD gives His voice before His army, for His camp is very great; for strong is the one who executes His Word.
What will happen with this great revival coinciding with this rapid increase in evil? Supernatural confrontations! Just as it was in the days of Elijah, when he called down fire from heaven. As the darkness intensifies upon the world, God’s glory will intensify upon the Church.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.
The promise that Jesus made two-thousand years ago concerning His Church (Matthew 16:18) will be fulfilled in glorious fashion. In this clash of good and evil that is brewing upon the earth, the Church will prevail!
On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it!
