OUTPOURING OF GLORY
By Dan Luehrs
The whirlwind of the Holy Spirit is going to take the church and world by storm, they will not understand what just hit them at first because most people only see the darkness of the storm, but soon they will see the lightning’s of God and hear the thundering of His voice and will be changed! They will repent from their sin and turn to Jesus; they will also be changed to the point that they too will become Ministers of Flames of Fire from God for all men to watch them burn. What an exciting time for us to be born and living in, we truly are a chosen people!
But before I begin to write on what the Lord has given me about Outpouring of Glory. I want to tell you how I received this message for the church that will soon be flowing in and enjoying the glory of the Lord as the world walks in the plagues of Egypt.
As I was sitting before the Lord reading Revelation 15:8, the word of God jumped off the page and enlightened my heart to see and understand by the Spirit of Revelation just what this verse is speaking of in our day. Then the Lord begun to speak to me saying, “This is where you are at, the glory is filling the temple of My people and power will be manifested.” A few seconds later I picked up a book when He spoke again, “I will confirm this word to you in your reading tonight.” I was reading The Call by Rick Joyner and got a few good things out of it, but nothing was shouting at me. Then I picked up Bill Britton’s book, Jesus the Pattern Son written in 1966. The words he wrote back then were exactly what I had just read in the book of Revelation, only God could have known that I would be reading there that night!
Bill writes, “They (WE) shall enter the kingdom realm and make a place for the bride in the time of the greatest outpouring ever of God’s power and glory and judgement and wrath upon the world. This outpouring shall end by bringing God’s true church into complete subjection to Him, out from the leadership of man’s ideas, and He shall set up His kingdom and it shall consume all the kingdoms of the world.” (End of quote).
The very next morning at 6:00 a.m. I received an email message from Rick Joyner that he just sent out called, “Vessels of His Glory!” I knew for sure that this was the message the Lord was speaking to me about His coming glory, and the time is now!
THE SMOKE, THE GLORY, THE POWER
And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished. Rev 15:8 (NASU)
We the church of Jesus Christ are the temple of God. As Spirit filled believer’s we are the ones filled with the smoke, glory, and the power of His Holy Spirit because we have already received the glory of God in the person of Jesus abiding in us. He alone is the glory of God! "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one” John 17:22 (NASU). The smoke of His glory in us is the tangibleness of God’s presence in which at times can be seen and even smelt. Several times in my life I have experienced His glory this way. It has been written about the children of the Azusa Street revival on how they would play hide and seek in presence of God’s glory because it was so thick like a great cloud of smoke. This once again is going to become reality to the church of the living God.
In the days that we are now living in, the day of God’s power where unity will be so manifested in and through His Sons that nothing or no one will be able to enter the temple of who we are, because we His people will be so full and overflowing with the power of God that there is no room for anything else! "But the Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth be silent before Him" Hab 2:20 (NASU). Let all the power of the flesh and religion shut its mouth for it will not enter us as individuals or as a body because we have become one with Him in glory and power. What a word, what a promise that we have. Jesus said, the devil comes and finds nothing in Me. Oh, hallelujah!
The seven plagues are the completion of God’s judgments in the earth. Plague means, epidemics, wounds, and afflictions that the world is presently going through have a completion day, is that not great news? The seven angels also speak to us about the perfect and complete judgments of God. Seven is the number of completion. These angels are messengers (People) that have a message from God to be delivered to the church and mankind to set them free from all false religion and the false (Prophets) in the church and the media that is spewing filth forth into the world that we live in, but not for long, the Sons of God are coming with great glory, power, and judgment.
THE OUTPOURING OF GLORY
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God. Rev 16:1 (NASU)
When we hear of the wrath of God, we see the judgments of God in the Old Testament raining fire down on His enemies. Yes, He is going to rain down fire, but not to destroy men’s lives, but to save them! The book of Revelation is not about the destruction of men’s lives, but the salvation, please read the end of the book. “When His disciples James and John saw this, they said, "Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?" But He turned and rebuked them, [and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them."] And they went on to another village” Luke 9:54-56 (NASU). Nothing has changed Jesus mind on this, all judgment was poured on Him from the Father for all mankind.
The command to pour out the bowels upon the earth came from the temple, this is where the angel/messengers came from also. “And the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in linen, clean and bright, and girded around their chests with golden sashes” Rev 15:6 (NASU). These are the Sons of God that just came on the scene in chapter 11, and were caught up to the throne. The throne of God is the temple of God, it is made up of mature Sons that have paid the price to follow Jesus to become like Him in the process of their tribulations in this lifetime. “Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done” Rev 16:17 (NASU).
Please hear me when I say, the nature of a lamb is in the temple, Jesus the Lamb of God is the very heartbeat of the temple of God of who we are. The Bible does not say the nature of a lion is in the temple, but that of a lamb. (See Rev. 21:22). When the book of Revelation speaks of the wrath of God, it is not to kill mankind, but to destroy the sin that is holding man in bondage to self, and when the outpouring of God’s Spirit comes it will set all men free. The very word, “wrath” in the Greek means, (The passion of a lover)! God is a lover of mankind and cannot wait to set them free by His judgments that they too will love Him as we do. We cannot continue to think that God is mad at people and cannot wait to destroy them. Jesus paid the price for all of us two thousand years ago when God the Father put the sin of all of mankind on Him. This alone appeased the anger of God against sin, forever. Now He comes at this time in history to set all men free by the power of His glory through His Sons. The Bible calls this time of the outpouring of the angel/messengers, great and marvelous! (See Rev. 15:1). How could all the death that people think is the book of Revelation be marvelous? God is not merciless, He is merciful!
THE TEMPLE WAS OPENED
After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened. Rev 15:5 (NASU)
Right now, the true temple of God is hidden from the eyes of most people, including most of the church. Unless we have eyes to see and ears to hear, we are simply missing all that God is doing upon the earth, but not for much longer! He is about to unveil His body of Sons in a way that the church and the world will never forget. This is what the whole book of Revelation is all about, the unveiling of Jesus Christ in and through His Sons, those who have been prepared for this hour in the last battle. God has been doing a deep work in His chosen ones for this day, it has been a deep work in the very heart of His mighty warriors to qualify them for this hour and is one of the greatest honors ever given to anyone who has ever lived. Only Jesus would surpass them in glory just as only Pharaoh surpassed Joseph. Joseph is a type of Son of God that went through the process and came out in the likeness of Jesus.
The tabernacle of testimony was opened! The heavens or spirit realm has now been opened for all to see the hidden work of God in His chosen ones. This is the very heart of God where the Sons of God have hidden themselves throughout the ages and now is open for God to display His mighty Ministers of Flames of fire. The Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle of Moses was called the “Testimony,” because the word of God and His mighty works are a testimony of all that He has done for mankind from the very beginning of time. Now the testimony of God is opened for all men to see how the word of God comes forth from a people that He has prepared, and they will be the word or the seed of God to sow into the lives of other people. For the Sons of God are the seeds of the kingdom of God. “And the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one” Matt 13:38 (NASU).
A COMPLETE OUTPOURING OF GLORY
So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image. Rev 16:2 (NASU)
There are seven messengers pouring out the glory of His power and each bowl has a different effect upon the people than the other ones. I see this as seven different outpourings or anointings of God going forth at one time. If we want all that God has called us, we must cross pollenate with other believers if we are to be all that God has called us to. When I was pastoring in the Assemblies of God Church the Lord spoke clearly to me that I needed to reach out to other movements or I would not get all that He had for me. We must humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God and each other and get very low in our mind and heart if we are to receive all that God has for us.
This first outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Revelation 16:2. The outpouring of conviction will aggravate and trouble people that are evil and have not repented of their sin and have given their hearts to the world system. Whether they call themselves Christian or not, it will touch everyone. It will cover the earth!
The second outpouring in verse 3 occurs over the sea. The sea represents those of the very lowest of sinful lifestyles. Nobody on earth will escape the glory of His power even in the lowest of seas, He will reach down to those we consider unsaveable and save them. Did not David say in the Psalms that God would go wherever we are to reach us? Yes, one hundred times yes, He will reach them all!
If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,"
Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.
Psalms 138:8-12 (NASU)
The third outpouring in verse 4 will occur on the water ways. The source of water represents the putrid teaching of mankind in the churches, schools, and throughout the media. The blood of Jesus will cleanse all streams of the mind of man. When we watch something online, do we not call it streaming? God said His teaching is like the fresh rain that waters the earth. The clean stream of the Holy Spirit will one day be in all people once again.
Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak;
And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
"Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As the droplets on the fresh grass
And as the showers on the herb.
Deut 32:1-2 (NASU)
The fourth outpouring in verse 8 occurs upon the sun. This represents the light that people are living in under darkness. I know that may not seem to make much sense, but did Jesus not say that our very light could be darkness? “The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. "But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” Matt 6:22-23 (NASU). Wow, now that explains our generation that we are living in! The fire of God is going to touch all those who think they see, but it is only darkness they are seeing because only Jesus is the light of the world! At first, they will not repent, but the ongoing love of God will not give up on them even though they curse Him to His face.
The fifth outpouring in verse 10 occurs on the very throne of the beast nature of man himself, his heart, and the light they thought they had in their foolishness will go dark! They will feel the weight of their darkness in their own soul that will cause great pain and tribulations. “Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard” Prov 13:15 (KJV). This fifth bowl judgment is about the rebellious condition of man and his reliance upon himself, trusting the world system rather than God as his provision. Because of this judgment man's natural understanding is darkened. It seems like this darkness has now ascended upon Washington DC! This is his throne that he has placed himself upon, controlling his own destiny rather than yielding his throne (heart) to the authority of Jesus Christ, who is the King of kings having earned the right to sit on the throne of our heart.
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (loss)." -- "And then shall that Wicked (man of sin) be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth (His Word), and shall destroy with the brightness (of truth) of his coming (presence)" (2 Thessalonians 2: 3,8 KJV).
This mystery man of sin is now being revealed in the earth as never before through the spirit of ungodliness. People are truly going from bad to worse through this spirit of uncleanness in the movies, television, Internet, music, and printed material. Satan uses all these mediums to strengthen the man of sin within us, so we will grow cold to God. Thanks be to God; this man of sin is going to be judged soon! We are coming to the final battle, Armageddon, which is a part of the sixth bowl judgment. Here, the man of sin will be destroyed in people by the bright revelation of the Lord coming within them.
The sixth outpouring occurs in verse 12, where the waters are dried up. The teachings and doctrines of men and demons are done! The great river Euphrates is one if the longest rivers and is dried up so that the way is prepared for the truth of the King of Kings to come to all men. "These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful" Rev 17:14 (NASU). Jesus comes with His chosen ones to save mankind in the river of the Holy Spirit. He will wash away the filth of mankind and save them that are in the greatest of echelons of education and bring them to war, the great day of God, when He does away with the sin that is holding mankind captive. Armageddon is the place of the last war of God with the sinful flesh of man and it is done away with! "Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame." And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon Rev 16:15-17 (NASU). Our warfare is won by us staying close to Jesus at all time, when we sin we turn to Him and repent and ask for His forgiveness. This is how we win!
The seventh outpouring and the completion is found in verse 17, it is now “Done!” The outpouring of God is finished. This bowl was poured in the very air itself for all people to breathe it in. The evil spirit’s that were controlling the air ways of man’s thinking and spiritual life since the time of Adam is finished. The revelation and manifestation of God will be so great that the truth of God will seem as lightning and will shake the very core of who man is, to set them free to be what God has called them to be in His likeness. “And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty” Rev 16:18-19 (NASU). The revelation of God will be electrifying, the sound from heaven will be deafening to the point that the truth will shake people to the core of who they are. Lives and the destiny of mankind will be changed forever! What a day it will be, prepare you heart and life for this change is coming to planet earth. Only the resurrection of Jesus will be greater than the magnitude of what is coming. The Spirit of the Lord says, “You must be ready in your heart for what I am about to do, otherwise you will miss My comings!”
