Calling All Simeons and Annas to Make Intercession for Next Move of God

About a year ago during a time of prayer in the Spirit, my wife heard a large squeaky door open. It was an ancient door that had not been opened in a very long time.

It reminded me of a similar word that Daniel of old received when the Lord told him that the words of his end time vision were closed up and sealed till the end of time (Dan. 12:9). Some doors are reserved to be open at the appointed time.

Imagine Simeon, and Anna the prophetess, praying and waiting for the redemption of Israel (Lk. 2:25-38). Imagine praying for a door like that to open.

Imagine Jesus praying in the garden and sweating great drops of blood in His final days as He executed the plan of the Father to finally culminate the redemption of mankind (Matt. 26).

Imagine the 120 in the upper room waiting for the outpouring of the Holy Ghost and the birthing of the glorious church (Acts 2).

Imagine Cornelius being visited by an angel and receiving instructions from the risen Lord concerning the key role he was to play in opening up the door of the gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 10).

We have reached such a time for another door to open. We need Simeons and Annas, and Corneliuses to pray and give birth to the great and final plan of God in this dispensation.

These days the spirit of prayer and supplication is increasing upon those who are given to prayer. Many are pregnant with something so grand that it is going to take others to help carry the load in order to give birth to it. A new phenomenon has been occurring in my wife's prayer life. Not only has revelation increased, but she has found herself praying by the Spirit beyond the rapture and into the next dispensation.

Many times during my preaching on end time themes she bursts into intercession while the meeting is going on because of the power she senses in the word of the Lord.

Be watchful, friends, and be in prayer. We are entering the final hour before Jesus returns. The fire of preparation and consecration is burning in my heart as we endeavor to run our own race and finish strong.

Much grace to you all who love the Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity (Eph. 6:24).
