A Prophetic Word
About the Final Outpouring of the Latter Rain By Theodore Aluoch
The Lord showed me a vision of two churches, the first church was a mega church with every material possession you can think of or imagine, they were very disorganized, very comfortable. There was no prayer in this church but gossip and jezebel spirits controlled the pastors, and there was a lot of disobedience to authority. They did not take the things of the God seriously, there was a lot of casual Christianity there such as idolatry and sexual sins.
Then the lord took me to another church that was meeting under a tree or vine symbolic here of (JESUS). They did not have a building at all, very few in number but they were on their knees. They understood the position of prayer yet they were not praying, sitting under a tree is a picture of peace, security and contentment, They were in a position of prayer but lacked revelation of what to pray for; this is the remnant church, this is the church drawn from the waters like Moses.
This is the deliverer church, she is the watchman church. It is the church on the wall, prepared in the fiery furnace of the Lord, this church will birth revival.
I saw seven angels, and seven doves came out of heaven as the Lord opened the sky and descended down to earth, doves following each of the seven angels. The doves in this vision were symbolic of the complete perfected, mature and the fullness of the glory of God the seven spirits of God sent out to the earth. These are found in Rev.1:4, 3:1, 4:5, and in 5:6.
They flew to the seven continents of the world, but when the angels came back there were no doves with them. Then the Lord JESUS spoke saying that the latter glory, the final outpouring the church is praying for, has been released on the atmosphere of the earth but the Lord Jesus lacks men to walk in it.
As the vision continued the Lord Jesus also spoke about why the latter outpouring tarries even though released already on the earth's atmosphere. The keys that He revealed to me in this vision were:
1) Prayerlessness in the church and in the lives of saints
2) Lack of practical love
3) Lack of balance in the things of God
4) Religion, denominationalism
5) Materialism, and the preaching of unbalanced prosperity message of sowing seeds which has become manipulation and is driven with greed
6) Disobedience to godly authority, and godly authorities abusing their authority
7) Idolatry, Not Putting the Lord Jesus Christ first in all things, serving our own selfish interest with impure motives
8) Worship of mammon, the love of money over the love of God, harlotry in the church women and dressing like prostitutes in the church, sexual sins on the altar of the Lord
9) Lack of intimacy, lukewarmness
The Lord JESUS spoke to me, that there is prayerlessness in the church which has resulted in a lack of genuine tangible power of God, a form of godliness and of religion but denying the power of God. There is no practical love in the church. As a result, that which the church parades as "love" is really mouth love rather than practical love. We have become so removed from that which is the model of the New Testament church was:
They love one another, and from widows they do not turn away their esteem; and they deliver the orphan from him who treats him harshly. And he, who has, gives to him who has not, without boasting. And when they see a stranger, they take him in to their homes and rejoice over him as a very brother; for they do not call them brethren after the flesh, but brethren after the spirit and in God. And whenever one of their poor passes from the world, each one of them according to his ability gives heed to him and carefully sees to his burial. And if they hear that one of their numbers is imprisoned or afflicted on account of the name of their Messiah, all of them anxiously minister to his necessity, and if it is possible to redeem him they set him free. And if there is among them any that is poor and needy, and if they have no spare food, they fast two or three days in order to supply to the needy their lack of food. They observe the precepts of their Messiah with much care, living justly and soberly as the Lord their God commanded them. Every morning and every hour they give thanks and praise to God for his loving-kindnesses toward them; and for their food and their drink they offer thanksgiving to Him. Acts 4:32-37
This is the type of love lacking in the church today. Sadly, the love is not practical at all like it was on the New Testament church. As James 2:16 highlights love must be practical.
Another area that the Lord pointed out is the lack of balance in the operations of leadership in the body of Christ; the extreme of everything always brings imbalance when we preach too much salt (holiness) without comprehending grace, then we lead many to legalism and death. When we preach too much grace, and mercy and liberalism without understanding the importance of holiness, we start justifying grace as a license to sin and mercy is no longer mercy but unsanctified mercy.
A shepherd needs to lay down his life for the sheep. However, some are so involved and even obsessed with promoting self and gaining material wealth despising the spiritual wealth they have become the mammonites. Instead of building the Lord's kingdom they build their own kingdoms. Some ministers will drive expensive cars while their sheep, their flocks are starving, both naturally and spiritually without food or shelter, without direction, and purpose in life. Read Ezekiel 34. While God's provision is a blessing, it is not necessary and is wasteful for the leadership to live in extravagance with no balance (Psalms 73:5) verses 12 says the wicked are always care free and they increase in wealth, their cry is not verses 25 ("Whom have I in heaven but you? And the earth has nothing I desire but you..."). We need to learn contentment as Scripture declares that, "Godliness with contentment is of a greater gain." (1Timothy 6:6). We must view all the Lord has given to us as His, to help others who are needy through us.
The Lord makes poor and makes rich 1 Samuel 2:7. The Lord Jesus also spoke about the unbalanced gospel of prosperity. Prosperity is a part of the Abraham covenant but we need to emphasize the prosperity of the soul first. The word of God itself tells us that He desires us to prosper even as our soul prospers “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers” (3 John 2). Prosperity is not an accident and does not include money and materialism. That is a smaller insignificant part of it. It is the result of the Word of God being in our life daily, dying to our selfish ambitions, that the Lord's glorious ambition be established. The soul must prosper first. When the Lord has captured our hearts and we are his possessions, guarded by much jealousy against anything that can take his place in our hearts, then He can entrust us with earthly possessions knowing that the earthly possessions will not compete with His Lordship over our lives. We must live with God both in theory and principle, not using God as a slot machine to multiply our money.
The Lord wishes to take His people back to foundational cores of our faith, the ancient paths (Jeremiah 6:16). The message of holiness and the cross and the blood of Jesus must be restored. Prosperity can only be balanced by the cross, the blood, and sanctification, not lying to people that they will prosper overnight even if they don’t repent and live holy lives. It also involves being blessed to pour out into other's lives as channels of His blessings. Shepherds have become overfed with malnourished sheep.. The temple of God is not a building. Rather, His temple is people. Scripture declares that we are "temples of the living God." (1 Cor 3:16) If stuff is now moving you and blinding you from seeing the giver of stuff, then you are in dangerous grounds of idolatry and without balance and you are worshiping money and have become a mammonite.
The Lord also has spoken about the disobedience of authority in his church, and the disobedience to his individual callings. Many sheep have had wrong leadership modeled before them through suppression, manipulation, control and condemnation, which further has caused hurts and wounds (Ezekiel 34.) These wounded sheep have not been able to see Godly leadership modeled before them. Leadership has failed to speak the truth in love, to balance grace and truth, and to teach under the leading of the Spirit of the Lord. Instead, we have agendas and worn out lifeless recycled sermons issued out of intellectualism and not revelational internalized words in our hearts that we live and not just talk. Instead, things have been programmed and organized hindering the leading of the Holy Ghost. There is need for Godly leaders full of the spirit and integrity to arise and restore some pride to the lost glory of the church. We cannot minister to wounded people if we ourselves have not been wounded and healed at the same time that is why we have arrogance and pride in leadership of churches. Men who have never walked any wilderness talk out of no experience but earthly carnal theories from some theological schools. We have nothing against theology, but you cannot learn GOD. Theology without the revelation of JESUS is nothing and knowledge puffs up. No wonder we have leadership that talks in arrogance and without compassion and experience. Jesus will only bring out the true priesthood from the fiery furnace and islands of afflictions.
Disobedience disgusts the Lord. People are unwilling to obey the Lord to go forth and do what they have been called to do. Carelessness and disobedience, excuses, and slothfulness have kept many Christians from going forth to the nations. There is often not clear teaching on the five fold ministry and equipping saints to do works of ministry as Ephesians 4:11,12 says. Instead, evangelists and prophets and apostles are pastoring churches rather than each operating in his or her calling ordained by God. Equippers are the ones doing ministry those who are to do ministry are warming the pew and being entertained by these overfed preachers.
God's people should seek JESUS, Him only. This requires seeking to be intimate with Him, His glory, His anointing, and His presence above all else in life. Within His glory there are hidden treasures of heaven that will satisfy our longing and give us hope, peace, and joy in this life. If the church all over the world will only repent of idols which they have substituted for His genuine presence and glory, the Lord will release the fullness of His glory on earth.
WE MUST REPENT ACCORDING TO JOEL 2:12-17
In summary, we are privileged to be called and sent forth to go to the seven continents of the world to tell the churches of these things. We have been to many churches and given out the word in obedience to our Lord JESUS. As the Lord leads we wish to partner with your church or ministry if you also have a heart for the genuine presence of the Lord and His GLORIOUS OUTPOURING. We will continue being available for revival meetings, conferences, and whatsoever the Lord leads us to do to glorify Him.
