Special Locutions on Iraq
Oil on the Lamptstand
Monday, June 16th, 2014
The future of the Church will not be an easy path. First, the Church has suffered from so many sides. Its critics rejoice because their voices are so strident and their words are so well received. Second, the Church has inner enemies who are hidden and do their work without being seen. They want to strip the Church of her supernatural elements so she can appear a fully modern institution. Yet, of these I do not speak.
The Church will share in events which will shake the world. Not only nations but the Church, also, will be shaken. The structures, the finances, the very work itself will be endangered by these events.
However, the Church will have the strength of faith not shared by the nations. This is why I must speak now. When the events begin, fears and even panic can enter into the Church. However, a moment will come when a great light of faith takes hold. The Church will say, “It is for this very moment that we exist. In the darkness, we will be the light to the nations”. There will be a fresh resolve. The events that should destroy the Church will be used to lift her up and place her light on the lampstand. At last! At last!
