A Revelation Received in the Night
January 21, 2008
A new spiritual movement has recently begun that is to
lay the final bridge to the appearing of Christ and His fully manifest kingdom.
Though having begun, the movement is at this hour imperceptible, but it will
begin unfolding in earnest later this year. The movement is initiated by the
Holy Spirit but has no recognizable point persona to be seen as its “head”—nor
will have in the future. Nor is it to have any centralized locality of
operation, but will arise nearly simultaneously around the world. (My personal
envisionment of this movement is with primary regard
The feature aspect of this movement is the supernatural revelatory exposure of the truth of the inner heart of men in all walks of life, both of the church and of the world. What has been successfully masked and hidden through every form of world social philosophy, church social doctrine, and all other equivocating amoral double speak will no longer be able to be kept hidden—namely, the sins and inherent sinfulness of men. In this, the historic success of these social masks and their legally empowered entities to put a public “gag order” all Christian moral truth (but specifically the gospel) in every day working community life, will be lifted for a short season of years.
In this season of world wide mask lifting off the church and society, a final work of the Spirit will be accomplished to both purge the church and accomplish an in-gathering from the world ahead of the final cataclysmic events required to complete replacement of the world’s systems by that of our Lord and of His Christ. This purging of the church will not be based in world persecution, yet will be more severe than anything ever known in church history. It is a repentance movement, but much more than a “movement.” Nor will it answer well to the term “revival.” It will be a kingdom force that effectively restructures how the church functions and manifests. It will in fact be a Pre-revelation of Christ Himself on final approach to earth.
Because of the power of the inward truth exposure, thousands of prominent ministries around the world will collapse overnight throughout this period. The curtain will be pulled back on the religious theater staged every week throughout the world to reveal the hidden nature behind the hearts of senior pastors, elders, apostles, prophets, worship leaders, and all of any stripe who participate in the weekly song and dance show and who keep building additions to the theater.
The world will not be in a persecuting mode because of the weight of its own exposure under the new Spirit Force Revelation of Christ. The machinery to put the final world tyranny security into effect and squelch the name of Christ off the face of society will be put into temporary abeyance because the systems will be too occupied with their own self-exposures. Politicians, judges, law enforcement, CEOs, managers and employees of business, charity and community corporations large and small will be tripped into exposing themselves for fraud, extortion, theft, fornications and much more.
Western civilization will be severely jolted. Governments will fall and some political parties will disappear. Household name businesses and worldwide financial institutions will also go under. In this period, men will be afraid to enter into agreement with their own evil intentions, but won’t know why. As the kingdom gospel emerges to provide light, many will come to repentance and turn to God’s Son. The rest will be restrained only by the knowledge that they seriously risk being exposed because of the unknown “truth force.”
Origin and Nature of the Truth Revelation Force
The emergence of the Truth Force is based on the Spirit’s previous hidden work in the lives of untold numbers of saints around the world—saints set apart through the deep crucifying intercessory fire of “truth in the inward parts” leading to guileless transparent hearts. It is a work that has been in preparation for upwards of two to three generations. These foundation stone saints have been all but removed from “above ground” worship centers and weekly theater-church functionality.
These saints form the seed bed of the new truth revelation force. Their own beings have become fully saturated with it and now they are starting to see it released as a power wherever they go—just by the fact of their presence. These are quiet, meek people. (You might call them “God’s sleeper cells.”) There is nothing outstanding about them. You have no way to know who they are. They are preaching nothing to anyone. They are not out crying aloud on the street corners “witnessing for Christ.” Rather, they are interceding. And they have but one intercession: “Father, bring forth the Spirit of the conviction of sin, righteousness, and judgment into the world.”
Without a word, God’s sleeper saints have begun touching lives—neighbors, friends, relatives, enemies, co-workers, fellow entrepreneurs, church folk—on the street, over the internet, around the world. The power of “CSRJ” (conviction of sin, righteousness and judgment) is being released. And the effects are already begun. By their mere engagement through everyday conversations and emails, exposures in the lives of all men have begun—from the lowliest homeless pan handler to heads of international foreign currency establishments committing fraud.
As the revelation of truth exposure arises in the presence of these living truth intercessors, neighbors begin seizing their own foul tongues to ask questions. And lo, the social taboo on the name of Christ begins to break. Men’s awareness of sin grows; their guilt begins to rise before them—for “no reason at all.” And they themselves raise the question, “Who is Jesus Christ?” The gates of hell cannot prevail against this truth force, but begin opening of their own accord to an advancing gospel never heard in public in this generation, even for many generations—the true gospel of the kingdom.
The release of the new revelation truth force is the Spirit’s strategic last answer to the veil that renders ineffective the preaching of the gospel. It is the Spirit’s answer to the fortress that has rendered the ears of all men deaf to the verbal gospel. It is a gospel not of the tongue, but of power beyond the tongue to pierce and expose the heart. Bypassing the tongue to go straight to the heart, it smashes the gates of hell erected over society to silence the gospel as has been the case in our times.
The Truth Baptism Force in Scripture
This worldwide revelational truth baptism ahead of the Lord’s final descent is prophetically foretold through a number of scriptural imageries. These imageries dovetail in the prophetic conceptualization of the Elijah / John the Baptist Spirit that comes ahead of the Lord’s return and they center on the concept of fire:
“Behold, I am going to send My
messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek,
will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom
you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. “But who can endure
the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For
He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. And He will sit as a
smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine
them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in
righteousness. Then the offering of
“And the axe is already laid at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. And His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear his threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Mt. 3:10-12
“And another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, went up before God out of the angel’s hand. And the angel took the censer; and he filled it with the fire of the altar and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake. Rev. 8:3-5
And I saw another angel flying in midheaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; and he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come; and worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters.” Rev. 14:6-7
These prophecies foretell the revelation truth force movement I have seen this night and which the Spirit has said has already begun. But this movement answers to many other things as well.
The Truth Baptism Force in Modern Prophetic Terms
The release of the new revelational truth force answers to the intense intercessions for righteousness that true prophetic people have given themselves to the last 2-3 generations. It answers to such as Mike Bickle’s prophecy about the Lord’s changing of the face of Christianity in a single generation. And it answers to the numerous prophecies about revival, about judgment and also the coming of the Elijah / John the Baptist Spirit.
will not answer to what has been envisioned by those prophecies. This movement
of God will not be about people falling on floors in theatric giddiness and
antics to be reported on by “the Christian papparazi”
as “revival.” Nor will it be about the judgment of God in terms of
falling bombs, communist invasions, collapsing national economies, etc. as
envisioned by others. Nor as an “Elijah” movement will
it be about any person or group becoming identified as “Elijah” or “John the
Baptist” or feature anybody that has been championing a cause by those names.
Furthermore, it is not starting as an identifiable “bang” in a single place
like “the Upper Room” or “
Far from all these things, the imminent Truth Force for the exposing of sin is an inward heart piercing movement beginning as if by “spontaneous combustion” in untold numbers of locations leading to the crying out for mercy and deliverance from the power and consequences of all known sin. As an uncontrollable fire, so will this move spread without respect through all social organisms, oblivious to the “properly perceived role of the church” and unhindered by any organized societal barriers. This revelation force will know no barriers, nor will the church be in the way of it as it will be an unmediated message directly between the Creator and all men in every walk of life. Its message will be as stated above, “Fear God and give Him glory, for the hour of His judgment has come.”
As it gains momentum, the revelational Truth Force movement will force the deconstruction of the theater-church. People will come to the Lord in every conceivable kind of location outside the church. The centralized theater-church will lose prominence and relevance because of this movement. In contradistinction, the new “truth churches” as they will be called will be based on a requisite of inner transparency. There will be no theater involved. Just simple gathering for intercession, study of the word, ministry of the gifts and powers associated with deliverance and sanctification, on a foundation of inner personal transparency rooted in the fear of God—conducted everywhere from homes to corporate boardrooms to public places.
The Revelational Truth Force featuring the Spirit of CSRJ will be the last preparation for final harvest of the earth and the end of the age. In these closing decades before final threshing, the church will be pre-purged to separate those who are to find final end-time protection during the security-tyranny from those who will not. For although many will be purged, many others will still hide until the light is past and they can come back out safely into the darkness of the church theater again. Meanwhile, the Truth Force will reach into every element of corporate society to gather out lost sheep unreachable by the historic theater-church gospel. And they will find protection in the new forum of Truth believers.
At a point determined by the Father, this final work of CSRJ will run its course, and the final worldwide darkness will then be released. This final work of darkness will fulfil Paul’s word regarding those who did not love the Truth being deceived by a Lie. All those who were not converted during the Truth Revelation or who hid from it to avoid conviction will then be delivered over to the final Security-Tyranny force.
The fires among the converted will congeal into a spiritual ark of protection during this time. As long as the new people of God remain transparent, they will be protected. But if they succumb to inward subterfuge, they will be taken in by the Great Lie and will depart to join the Security-Tyranny forces of the man of sin. It is during this time that the great martyrdom will break out against all the church, and the theater-church will not survive. The beast will devour the harlot.
“When Will All These Things Be?”
Someone will ask, “How long will it be until all these things manifest and run their course?” I do not have the revelation on this. My personal best guess as a searcher of the times is that all this will have all concluded within the first half of this present century, and likely well before. As we seek to follow the Spirit’s road map, we can only move forward one day at a time. It is important to remember to hold time frames lightly because the outworking of the Lord’s ways to the end come with many unanticipated twists and turns along the way. That does not mean we should not search the times and take a “que sera sera” attitude to the end as many do. We are called to be ready, and we cannot be ready as commanded unless we are diligently seeking after the Lord’s return.
Obviously, this is a bold word, and to publish such a word is risky when there is next to nothing evidential to back up what the word declares and it contradicts much else that is being declared—as is the case at this hour (Jan. 2008). Nevertheless, as one faithful to his commission to declare what he sees, I offer this word to the body of Christ for examination and proving in every heart. I cannot defend this word. It must defend itself. And if it is from the Lord, it will do so. In any event, this is the word I have been given to see out of a period of intense sickness and intercession.
Therefore, do not take my word for the validity of this word. Let the Spirit confirm all things to you according to the anointing that is within you. Prove all things, hold fast that which is good.
