The Lord's End Time Army

Part 1 of 3

John Siefker

 

 

The trumpet of the Lord has been blown and the Holy Spirit is enlisting soldiers in His end time army.  This last day army will walk in unprecedented glory and power, the like we have never seen before.

 

Matthew 11:12 says,

     And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

 

This upcoming end time army will be militant in spirit. They are not just youth, they are everyone that has the same burning passion, desire, and heart for advancing His Kingdom and bringing in the "Great Harvest".

 

 

What I Saw

 

While I was soaking in the presence of the Lord, I was taken in the spirit and I saw a whole event unfold before mine eyes. 

 

I was taken into a vast open field, and the atmosphere was very thick and heavy.  As I looked all around me, I saw innumerable men and women.  They were young to old and of every different color gathering together.  They were lining up and getting in formation.  

 

All of the people were dress in white garments and they had many different tools in their hands.  They all were shining like many bright lights.  I then looked at myself and seen that I was dressed just like the other people.  I felt tense but there was an excitement in me.  As I looked at all the people around me, I could see that they were feeling what I was feeling.

 

As I was standing there, I heard a loud sound that was released.  The sound was extremely loud and the vibrations went through the atmosphere like a knife.  The vibrations went through my being in waves.

 

We all begin moving forward very fast.  As I looked to my left and right, I saw all the people were on fire.  It looked like a wall of fire.  As we were moving forward, everything around us was catching on fire. 

 

There were people that didn't look like we did or the way we were dressed and their clothes were catching on fire and burning.  These people that had caught fire and were burning, all of a sudden they looked like we did and stepped into the formation.  The sound of all the people was tremendous and the ground was shaking.

 

In front of us was this huge city and we continued to go forward and we entered the city.  This army of people went through and over everything that was in their path.  They went everywhere and they never looked back.

 

As I was wondering and asking myself what all of this was, I heard the voice of the Lord say "This is My army for the end time harvest and you are in it."  This was what Joel spoke of.

 

This was one of the first times that I had an encounter where I was taken right into a passage of scripture in His Word.  This was like stepping into the Bible.  The encounter that I was just in was Joel 2:1-11.

 

 

Joel 2:1-11

 

In Joel 2:1-11, Joel describes the end time army of the Lord.  It is an awesome and powerful army that will bring in the "Great Harvest" and bring glory to the Lord.

 

 

(1) Blow ye a trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand.

 

We are to proclaim that the day of the Lord has come "to preach the gospel to the poor (lost), to heal the brokenhearted, to set the captives free, and to heal the sick" (Isaiah 61:1-4, Luke 4:18-19, Matthew 10:7-8, & Mark 16:15-18). 

 

As believers, we are to alert all of those around us that the time is short and the day for their salvation has come.  We are to tell them about Jesus and show them His love.

 

 

(2) A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as a morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

 

The days that we are living are getting darker and darker from sin and wickedness of the enemy.  The Lord is raising up a great army for bringing in the harvest and for doing great and mighty exploits for Him.  There will never be anything like this army that He is going to release.

 

 

(3) A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

 

The fire of God will go before us to consume and destroy all that is of the enemy.  There will be a burning light that is left behind them.  The burning light that remains will be the revelation of who Jesus is to all of the earth. 

 

His army of believers will step into the fullness of all that the Lord has promised us in His Word.  They will walk in levels of anointing and power like we have never seen before.  Not just a few of us but all of us.  All the things of the past of where we were and what we did will become faded in comparison to where we are now.

 

Isaiah 40:5 says,

     And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together
