A Kairos Moment: The Door Is Open

Kairos: "The appointed time in the purpose of God." The time when God acts.

We have entered a unique kairos moment. God has heard our cries for, "Why not now? Why not here?" Godly secrets of the heart will be manifested. Our moment to change history has arrived. It will explain why we haven't been heard from yet. I sense strongly a couple of those God moments taking place on the earth. For one: There will be those who will change history with a pen. An innocent pen will become the axis that will turn the world upside down and birth a nation in a day. ( Isaiah 66:8 )  And the other one: Many who have wept long lonely nights will discover that their tears were seeds of flowers that are now blooming for their wedding day. Many will discover their once-in-a-life time moment and why they were born. The door is open!

 "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written." St. John 21:25

I saw gold pens falling from heaven as though they were thrown by the angels. They were hurled like javelins into the hands of unknown people. These pens turned into spears and swords as they fell into these hands. As their fingers began to write; books, songs and poetry were becoming lethal weapons to war against the enemy! Psalm 144:1 was being activated throughout the earth! "Blessed be the Lord my strength, who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight!" Is there a book in you? A song stirring in your heart? Poetry that keeps coming to the surface? Perhaps the Lord is calling you this hour to pick up your pen! 

Long awaited 'end-time' weddings will take place upon the earth, preceding the greatest wedding in the Universe.

I saw veils of singleness that had been covering many single men and women for years, in spite of their desire to marry. These veils were actually covering them to protect and hide them from wrong relationships. Many had thought, "What's wrong with me? No one seems to notice me or even look at me." But I saw the wisdom of God hard at work to preserve these chosen ones for the person whom the Lord was preparing and keeping separate for them. I sensed the Father saying to their guardian angels, "Begin to lift the veils of 'singleness' off of their faces. It's time for them to see and be seen by the ones whom I have ordained for them. As I sent an angel to direct the steps of Isaac's servant to find Rebecca for him, I am sending angels before them to guide them." 

 I've noticed a pattern that weaves through my life. After seasons of living in obscurity a kairos moment thrusts me to a higher, more noble place. There I discover God had been using me all along, perhaps even most in those seasons when I felt like quitting.

Inside The Prayer Closet

Have you ever felt like quitting? Aren't you glad that Jesus never quit? Quitters never win! Winners never quit! 

A mother's prayers are powerful, but oh, the power of a grandmother's prayers! Grandmothers not only spoil their grandchildren; they spoil the enemy's plans for them as well. I saw bloodhounds from Heaven being released to pursue this third generation. I saw grandmothers pleading the blood of Jesus over their grandchildren and these bloodhounds were picking up the scent of that blood as they began to outrun and overtake these young ones at every turn. There was no more hiding place for them.

At age seven I was miraculously healed of a brain tumor in Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. The tumor surgery had to be cancelled. After all these years the Lord recently opened the door to that hospital to pray for people with brain injuries. I am discovering something. Where the devil wants to kill you is often the place where God wants to use you.

'Angelic' doctors and nurses are being released upon the earth this may want to get a second opinion. The nurse's name was Peggy. She came during many long nights to sing hymns to a dear friend of mine while he was in the hospital in critical condition. Later, he wanted to personally thank her for her encouragement and kindness. Upon asking the hospital staff and the other nurses on that floor, they responded, "Oh, she is that 'traveling' nurse. We don't know where she comes from or where she goes!

A lion roared inside our mothers' wombs. "I have called you to be a prophet to the nations." Think of it. God calls us to be a prophet to the nations. Nothing in me to this day can get a handle on that. This awesome thought puts me into a fetal position from the start. Most of my life has been uneasy with this call. Who am I that a King would bleed and die for and think of me in this way. Revelation like lightning flashes before me at times, but not on most days. And yet on my worst days the call rings true blue. It's who God says I am.

When you know what God has called you to do, nothing can stop you but yourself. I still never quite get used to ministering to people or typing out a message. But the butterflies are fewer. My knees are not so weak. The call of God reminds me: I can do this. This is what I was born for. And the greater One is in me. The roar of an untamed lion is in our call.

For many years I had doubted the call of God on my life. Until the day an apostle spoke over me. "Bill, it's not your fault that you're a prophet. But you have to walk in it." Don't apologize for the call of God on your life either. It's not your fault. Walk in it and let the lion roar!
