I hear the Lord saying, there is an army marching. It is a ‘Coming From Behind Army.’ This army is made up of people whom the world has cast aside and has said; you don’t fit our criteria. You don’t measure up. You’re of no worth. You’re not what we want. But the Lord says, “They are mine. I want them.”
There is a coming together of all of those whom the world and even the church has labeled, ‘has been’s.’ I hear the Lord say these people will be joined together from all over the world by the Holy Spirit. This group of people who have been labeled, ‘throw away’s’ will be strong and “they shall not break rank.”
The world and the church are going to be surprised at this strong and mighty ‘Coming From Behind Army.’ They will march strong in unity, carrying high the blood-stained banner of King Jesus throughout the land. “His banner over us is love.”
THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST:
I hear the Lord say; He will use this group to bring God’s people and all people back to the cross of Jesus Christ. Not to the wooden emblem, whereas, it can become an idol, but to the true purpose of the Lord’s crucifixion upon the cross. It is time to come back to the cross of Jesus Christ and it‘s reality.
DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY:
This ‘Coming From Behind Army,’ is a mixture of people from all races and cultural backgrounds. Many of the men and women in this army have experienced shipwreck in ministry. They have been written off and rejected by both the church and society. Doors that were slammed shut to these men and women are being reopened even now. And even greater doors of opportunity are opening for them to tell their testimony of simple faith and of their union with Jesus. For it is the time of God’s favor.
THE SPIRIT OF JOHN THE BAPTIST:
This group of people are a part of the whole Army of God. They will be bold in the love of Christ Jesus. They will not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ, nor their devotion to the Lord. They will go forward as ONE in the power of the Holy Spirit. Their passion and goal is to bring glory to Jesus in the earth before all men and win the lost.
This part of God’s Army will be a great offense to many who are following after religion instead of following after Jesus and His Kingdom. In the spirit of John the Baptist, they will expose all manner of sin. They will boldly call people to repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.
GOING FORTH INTO THE HARVEST:
Among the mixture of the world’s cast off’s will be biker’s who have had a “Damascus Road” experience with Jesus Himself, and who are now bondservants. Other’s will be those who have spent years behind prison walls. Some will even have been on death row but will have their sentence overturned and miraculously set free to heed the Lord’s calling to the streets.
I hear the Lord say, that just as Paul and Silas, while in prison were praising and worshiping God, this same thing is happening in prison’s all over the world as more men and women are giving their hearts to Jesus Christ. Instead of violence being predominate in many prison’s, praise and worship has become dominate. This will increase as God pours out of His Spirit upon all flesh. “I hear the sound of an abundance of rain.”
And just as God showed up on the wings of Paul and Silas’ praise and worship to shake the prison doors open, He’s getting ready to supernaturally swing wide the doors of natural prisons for many to go forth into the harvest and their calling as Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, Pastors and Evangelists.
ROOTING OUT SIN:
Other’s who are in this ‘Coming From Behind Army’ will be ex-prostitutes and ex-drug addicts who have abandoned all to follow Jesus Christ. These are more of the world’s rejects and they are radical for Jesus. They will be an offense to the religious groups who have a “form of religion but deny the power therein." The Holy Spirit will use the offense to root out the sin of hypocrisy, pride and racism in many places of gathering.
Conviction of the Holy Spirit will fall like rain upon men’s hearts, causing a great surge of repentance and reconciliation to take place among the groups. Many people who believed themselves to be saved will truly cry out to God from a repentant heart and be born again. In droves, the back-slidden will turn around and run back toward God, repenting and crying out to God to be restored because of His intense love upon them.
THEY WILL LOVE NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO DEATH:
To much of the Church, this ‘Coming From Behind Army’ will be a welcomed blessing. This part of God’s Army will be brought forth to action quickly. They will be instrumental in helping to usher in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to this earth. These people will not be swayed by public opinion. They will not be men-pleasers, but rather, their heart’s passion is to please God above all else. They will follow the example of Jesus, Who came to do the will of the Father.
These people will not only be bold as the Lion of Judah, but they will be totally sold out to God, and they will love not their lives unto the death. Some of these people will be martyred in the name of Jesus, and for the gospel’s sake. Like Stephen, they will see the glory of God fully revealed in the Son, Jesus, as they are translated into the presence of God. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
(DUNAMIS) POWER EVANGELISM:
Through God’s Army, the world will see a new surge of (dunamis) power evangelism. Through this Army’s bold witness under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit, multitudes will be swept into the Kingdom of God. There will be a new surge of apostolic signs and wonders following in full demonstration wherever they go.
As these people minister the Word of God under the Anointing, many healings and creative miracles will take place. Many people will never have human hands layed upon them, yet they will testify to the experience of hands touching them and they were healed. It will be the hands of Jesus Himself. He will walk among His people, touching and healing as they worship and glorify Him. These miracles will bring encouragement and hope to the Body of Christ, but they will also draw the unbeliever’s to give their hearts to Jesus.
SETTING THE CAPTIVES FREE:
Many people will be set free of the demonic influence of depression and oppression. They will be set free in their minds and will turn their will and hearts to God. (Luke 10:38), “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth, with the Holy Ghost and with power, Who went about doing good and healing ALL who were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him.” Through the resurrection power of God, many people in satanic strongholds will be loosed and set free. All manner of sickness and disease will be healed. As in the days of Jesus on earth, it will become common for people to be set free of demons.
In the midst of these ministry gatherings, which will take place in some most unusual places, there will be more and more people raised from the dead. Even people who have fallen over dead in they’re midst. They will be called to come forth unto life again, just as Jesus called Lazareth to come forth from out of the tomb (John 11: 43). And like Lazareth, there will be instances of people being brought back to life after they have been dead for several days. They will be raised from the dead as a witness to the resurrection power of God. And to the witness of Jesus Christ Who said, “I am the resurrection and the life, he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25).
