Topic: This is the Finest Hour of the Church
Scripture: “For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.” Haggai 2:6-7 (KJV)
Message: Today, it is no longer news that the world is in a cup of trembling. Everywhere you turn, you are confronted with so much hopelessness. The world is truly looking for answers. Science and the technocrats have failed. The health system is overwhelmed. The economic predictions have fallen to the ground and many are in utter confusion seeking for answers. However, this is the opportunity for the believer to shine brighter in a world that is getting darker. This is the finest hour for the church!
The book of Ephesians 3:10 declares: “To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God.” It is God’s intention that in the midst of all the confusion we see around us today, the church would manifest the many-sided wisdom of God and arise in glory.
Beloved, if God is today shaking all that can be shaken around us, what is that saying to you? I believe without any shadow of doubt in my heart that God is positioning you to show others the way. When men are confused and don’t know where to turn to, they have no choice but to turn to the church for answers. That is why believers must be solution providers to our world.
When the world turns to you, they must find answer. You have what it takes. So, take advantage of who you are in Christ Jesus because the world is looking up to you. Darkness as black as night will cover all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord will shine over you. All nations will come to your light. Mighty kings will come to see your radiance.
