As we get closer to the days of the Kingdom, we will need to see things happen more quickly and on a greater scale than what we have seen before. We need to open our minds not only to the need for it, but to the possibility of it. However, is there a scriptural precedence to believe for what we can only call mass salvation or mass movings of God through the earth in our day and time?
One of the things that is so concerning in this day and age is that it seems America is going against God and against the Word of God. We are trying to remove God from the public square, out of our national debate, out of our legal system, out of our schools, and out of healthcare.
In these Last Days, as God is bringing forth His Kingdom on the earth, sometimes it seems as though things are dragging out and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But God will cut short the days and make quick work of His plan to bring forth His Kingdom upon the earth—so things will begin to happen quickly and will happen on a broad scale. There will be salvation and deliverance for all who call upon Him.
We see this idea of a national outcry in Zechariah. We see this idea of a global event taking place in Joel as this same cry goes out before the Lord. In the story of Jonah, we see that God was going to destroy this entire city in 40 days, but He was willing to relent from this calamity. What Jonah did, speaking a word, triggered in the hearts of this whole city to repent and turn to God.
In the New Testament Scriptures, we see the same thing at the beginning of the Ekklesia, the Church. Everyone felt a sense of awe at the many wonders and signs that were taking place through the apostles. In just a very short time after the resurrection and ascension of Christ, we see the apostles speaking a word and then all at once thousands of people are saved in Jerusalem. God grant us that faith and those words to accomplish the same.
- Romans 9:28. “For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness.”
- Zechariah 12:9–14. “And they will mourn for Him.”
- Joel 2:28–32. “I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind.”
- Jonah 3:2–10. “Then the people of Nineveh believed in God.”
- Acts 2:38–47. “And that day there were added about 3,000 souls.”
- Acts 4:1–4. “And the number of the men came to be about five thousand.”
- “We know that God is going to cut short the days and make a quick work upon the earth of His plan to bring forth His Kingdom. Since things will happen quickly, we know they will happen on a broad scale.”
- “Even if God brings a mass moving of salvation, or a mass moving of miracles, signs, and wonders, this does not mean that we will lose in any way that very deep, personal sense that goes hand in hand with our individual salvation experience.”
- “We once believed that America was a government that sought to be one nation under God, indivisible, and to follow the law of God within our national laws. What a delight to see that we have a biblical mandate that says the Word of God can reach a city like Nineveh, which was in so much wickedness God was ready to devastate it.”
- “In Acts, we see the first megachurch. This obviously disagrees with the concept that the Jews rejected Jesus and didn’t believe. No, they believed by the thousands and the church was borne out of their cry of repentance. Jewish believers were the foundation of the church, and for the first 13 years or so it was only a Jewish church.”
- We have seen in the Word of God that there is absolute precedence for us to believe that salvation, miracles and other experiences in the End Time can and will take place on a massive scale.
- In light of this biblical precedence, as believers we should contend in prayer to see events such as those we see in the scriptures take place in our time.
- What today’s world needs is a wave of mass meetings with God, mass outpourings of the Spirit, mass salvation experiences like Jonah and the disciples experienced. May this take place in our generation!
