END TIME REVIVALS


By Ueli Surbeck                                                            January 9. 2013



The past fall season was very special in that the Holy Spirit continually brought a theme to my spirit to let me ponder over its meaning and get deeper and deeper. It is inspired at one hand by the wonderful passage of the wise and foolish Brides as written by Apostle Matthew in Chapter 25. Further it is also based on the Vision given to Robert Burnell called Escape from Christendom. For some these thoughts are maybe a bit radical, but I simply tried to be honest with myself, the word and the facts, hope it will help many to take the right decision or to pray for friends and loved ones, avoid some deadly traps and walk with our Lord, closer and closer, because He is worthy to be trusted fully and to be in charge of our lives, because He had given all for us!

There is a Religious counterfeit Revival and at the same time a real Spirit led Revival taking place in the end times, exactly as its outcome is depicted in Matthew 25:1-13 

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

“And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hourin which the Son of Man is coming.

This wonderful passage shows how the Body of Christ consist of the foolish Bride, earthly minded, and no spirit, the Holy Spirit is as far away from her as the moon is from the earth, and very much like Ishmael hated Isaac, she rejects/hates the real Bride, but loves the world. And there is the wise Bride, through the Old Testament often called the Remnant /Bride, full of life, full of Spirit; she is carefully preparing herself for the Return of her Master and Bridegroom. She hates the spirit of the world, but loves the people from outside, even Ishmael, her half Brother.

I believe there are several characteristics who describe these two moves:

First I want to describe the Religious Revival, it’s a revival born out of a real hunger for the Lord, and a new unity in the Body of Christ. But in order to achieve its goal, the move chooses to return to old human to human traditions and compromise, rather than the move of the Spirit and the restoration of all things. Its principle is again to obey men (the so called professional leadership) rather than God! It has the tendency to build huge cathedrals, operate large and costly Seminars. The Churches have great programs and is admired in the secular world for its great works. It is all about love and men, but very little about God, truth and a real walk with God. It is a move who instead of standing firm and building on the foundation rediscovered in the time of the Reformation; Salvation through repentance by free Grace through Faith in Jesus. It is a move who returns to shake hands with the Catholic Church, honoring the pope as a spiritual leader of the Church, which means to some extent she admits that the protestant move was a black sheep and God can be found in every Church! Instead of giving help in leading these leaders through deep repentance they are accepted as equal ministers in the Kingdom.

And further they reject the Miracle God did in giving birth to the modern State of Israel and having something foundational to do in bringing the Jewish people back to their Land, defending them from their enemies. Because in their opinion the Church has replaced Israel and is now the sole inheritor of God’s promises and stand firmly with the Palestinians Arabs in their struggle for a Nation as much as against the Jewish people or so called “nightmare”.

It is a move described by Paul to Timothy in an excellent way:  having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! And always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2. Timothy 3:5 and 7.

Lately I heard Evangelist Nathan Morris cite William Booth, the founder and leader of the Salvation Army. I believe He gives a very accurate description of this move when He warned and said, ”The greatest danger for this coming century is Religion without the Holy Spirit, Christianity without Jesus, Forgiveness without Repentance, Salvation without Regeneration, Politics without God and the preaching of Heaven without the preaching of Hell. It is a Gospel the Holy Spirit does not recognize!”

Or with other words it is a move very similar to Ishmael, it is a bastard son, why because it is born out of the word of God, or part of it and the spirit of this world, contrary to the wise Bride who like Isaac is a true miracle born son, born out of the full council of the living Word of God and the Holy Spirit.

Secondly the wise BridetheSpirit led Revival. First of all she loves the Lord from all her heart and has said no to satan, the world and the flesh. She has learned to listen to His Voice and meditate His Word all the time and walks with Him all the way. She fully believes in the atoning sacrifice through Jesus, salvation by repentance of sin, and saved by grace through faith. She has chosen to leave dead religion behind her, is baptized in water and in the Holy Spirit as prepared and required by our Lord and found Him in the desert and enjoys the fullness of the Move of His Spirit. She enjoys the fullness of all the Ministries (the fivefold Ministries of Old and New Testament) as well as the foundational ministry of the priesthood as well as the call to Missions, both calls given to every born-again believer. She reaches out to others as much as she has a great desire for all the truth as well as all the prophecies in the Word being restored and fulfilled, through the completeness of the God-given and legitimate Ministries, in order that she can reach her fullness as foretold by Apostle Paul:

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Ephesians 4:11-13

She has a great heart for the land of Israel, as well as the Jewish people, that means our unsaved and even more so our saved Brothers in the Lord, the Messianic Believers with who we are what Apostle Paul calls the Commonwealth of Israel. She believes that the rebirth and restoration of Israel is done by the mighty Hand of Almighty God, fulfilling the prophetic Word of God. She prays for the fullness of this restoration to take place as much every Jews to be saved by the precious Blood of Jesus, until all Israel shall be saved and all Jews shall have returned to Israel and came to the knowledge of the Messiah. She also loves the Arab people and prays for their salvation and believes that very soon a mighty Revival will sweep many of the Arab Nations and free them from oppressive Islam.

She believes, looks for and is totally sold out for the End time Revival and Harvest taking place. She is part of an Army, that means dedicated spiritual soldiers as Prophet Joel and Enoch has foretold. She knows that walking in the End times will require the highest level of commitment, sanctification and to hate and resist satan, the world and flesh unto Blood, in Jesus Name! To follow Him and serve the Lord is much more important for her as the care for this world (like true soldiers or sportsmen are) and with great Boldness she will be a witness of our Lord’s salvation, which is the Message of the Cross, the Blood of Jesus who washes whiter as snow, His resurrection and the Power of Pentecost, in order to call the Nations to get right with God! This is her call, like Enoch foretold and it is the Call of the two witnesses, it is the Message of the Gospel, which is the Power of God unto Salvation!

Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” Jude 14-15

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16

As much as she loves the Body of Christ, she is not afraid to call the modern day Pharisee a brood of snakes and scorpions, as well she understands that the catholic church in the west, the orthodox Church in the east and large parts of the Three self Church in China with a hierarchical system which puts the essence and authority of the Church in an exclusive priesthood, and makes ordained priests, Bishops and the Pope the necessary mediators between God and the people, and together with the so called Papal infallibility, magisterial authority and the clerical celibacy one of the most outrageous sins, best described in Isaiah 14:13-15 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ (And become the Mediator between God and Mankind) Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit

. Or by Apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 4:1-3:Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

It is a system and its beliefs have a long time ago walked away from truth. It began for sure when they introduced the “marian dogmatic teachings”, spiritually the same as the worship of the Queen of Heaven in OT times or the worship to Diane of Ephesus in NT times and gone beyond the no return point since the Council of Trent 1545-1563. It became the black sheep exactly like the northern ten tribes of Israel who where cast out by the Almighty Father after refusing His correction over and over and has become extremely evil; Apostle John calls it in Revelation 17 the mother of Harlots, because of the filthiness of her fornication! And anybody who wants to be truly saved and walk with the Lord has to get out of her and out of all those who associate with her!

  So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. Revelation 17:3-6

By the way I hope you are aware, that the Lord has several years ago revealed through a young lady which was raised from the dead, Angelica Zambrano, that John Paul II is spending eternity in Hell and this for basically three reasons, because of Idolatry, (himself, Mary and the saints), the abuse of money, compromise of fornication among his followers, the so called “exclusive priesthood”. And I believe if his follower pope Benedict XVI does not head this warning and begins to repent and clean up himself and his camp, he will perfectly follow his predecessor and spend eternity with him in Hell! (Even so this is not at all the desire or will of God!)

Here is what Angelica saw:

Then the Lord took me to place where there was a very well-known man.  Before now, I used to live as a double minded young Christian girl.  I used to think that any person that died would go to Heaven; that those who celebrated mass would also go to heaven, but I was wrong.  When Pope John Paul II died, my friends and relatives would tell me that he had gone to heaven.  All the news on TV, on Extra and many other places would say, "Pope John Paul II has died, may he rest in peace.  He is now rejoicing with the Lord and his angels in heaven" and I believed all of it. But I was only fooling myself, because I saw him in Hell, being tormented by flames.  I looked at his face, it was John Paul II!  The Lord said to me, "Look, Daughter, that man that you see there, is Pope John Paul II.  He is here in this place; he is being tormented because he did not repent.

"But I asked, "Lord, why is he here? He used to preach at church." Jesus replied, "Daughter, no fornicator, no idolater, no one who is greedy and no liar will inherit My Kingdom."(Eph. 5:5)  I replied, "Yes, I know that is true, but I want to know why he is here, because he used to preach to multitudes of people!" And Jesus responded, "Yes, Daughter, he may have said many things, but he would never speak the truth as it is.  He never said the truth and they know the truth and although he knew the truth, he preferred money over preaching about salvation.  He would not offer reality; would not say that hell is real and that heaven also exists; Daughter, now he is here in this place.

" When I looked at this man, he had a large serpent with needles, wrapped around his throat, and he would try to take it off.  I pleaded with Jesus, "Lord, help him!"  The man would scream, "Help me, Lord; have mercy on me; take me out of this place; forgive me!  I repent, Lord; I want to return to Earth, I want to go back to Earth to repent." The Lord observed him and said to him, "You very well knew.  You knew very well that this place was real...It's too late; there is no other opportunity for you.

" The Lord said, "Look, Daughter, I am going to show you the life of this man."  Jesus showed me a huge screen on which I could observe how this man offered mass many times to the multitudes.  And how the people who were there were so idolatrous.  Jesus said, "Look, Daughter, there are many idolaters in this place.  Idolatry will not save, Daughter.  I am the only One who saves, and outside of Me, no one saves.  I love the sinner, but I hate sin, Daughter.  Go and tell humanity that I love them and that they need to come to Me.

" Dear Reader what I am writing here is serious, very serious. We are very well aware, that there are thousands of precious believers who are Catholics and still stuck in the system, like prophet Jonah in the Belly of a stinky Wale. I am sharing this truth which is in fact a desperate call of the Holy Spirit to every catholic believer, in order for as many as possible to choose to follow the Lord instead of a dead system, and to get out of it like Jonah, who when beginning to pray the wale spew him out, to get right with the Lord, to be filled afresh with His Spirit and serve Him with all their heart!

And at the same time WOE to those ministers who have been called to help this precious saints to get out of their system and instead comforted them in their sins and twisting and for those who made a covenant with them and the Catholic system and maybe even turned away from the way of life to become Catholic, I tell you, you have missed it and grieved the Holy One of Israel deeply! You have done a lot of damage to His Kingdom and damage to the Harvest and you can be counted happy if you will make it to Heaven! And even this only if you render your heart, cry out to Jesus and repent deeply!

I believe that there will be a modern day Exodus before the return of the Lord and I believe it has already begun. This modern-day exodus has been prophesied many years ago, here is one of those very important and exciting words which we believe are very true, which has began, but will soon come to its fulfillment:

Prophetic Catholics
By Dennis Cramer, 1997  

An awesome army of Catholic prophets will storm the gates of hell.           
The Roman Catholic Church will see a worldwide proliferation of legitimate prophets arise from her ranks during the 21 century.    

        God says, “Do not count the Catholics out!” These Catholic prophets, classic late bloomers, will be trained outside the Catholic Church and then will return to bring out those who will come.

  A GREAT EXODUS         

  Led by this new breed of Catholic prophet, a great exodus will substantially decrease the overall size of the Catholic Church, leaving only diehard adherents of this denomination to resist these changes.       

  The irony is clear. The very prophets God raises up to renew the Catholic Church will be categorically rejected by its leadership.  Despite their best efforts, these prophetic men and women will effect no lasting change among the Catholic hierarchy, but the laity of the Catholic Church will respond by the millions!  

CATHOLIC PROPHETS   

  In spite of severe persecution by fellow Catholics, Catholic prophets will operate in a new prophetic audacity never before seen by Christendom. These empowered lay leaders will birth many small groups — some of which will grow into great churches in their own right.            

Sadly, however, the Catholic Church will condemn such groups, ultimately issuing orders of excommunication to many of them. This threat, however, will not stop the flood of prophetic activity from rising to new heights.

 Eventually, Catholic and Protestant prophets will model a new unity in the Spirit, working together side by side. The release of prophetic power will be exponential!    

 As a result of this prophetic awakening among the Catholics of the world, Rome-based Catholic leadership will come under intense scrutiny by many of its followers. 

 Some of the most loyal Catholics, specifically European and Latin American Catholics, will revolt. Rome’s authority will be cut by two-thirds of what it is now.

Dear Friends today is the day of salvation, today is the day to head the voice of the Holy Spirit, to follow Him and surrender all to Jesus and to allow Him to get deep with Him, to invite Him to clean your life and restore, where restoration is needed, because He is so Awesome and He loves to do this! That’s why He died for you and me, so He can touch us and make us whole!

This is the Hour for the real Gospel to be preached, the Gospel how Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, how His Blood and only His Blood washes wither then snow, His Resurrection and Pentecost, the fullness of His Spirit available to mankind today! He is the one who baptizes in the Holy Ghost and Fire from the first day of Pentecost until today! He has never changed! The message of the true Gospel is the Power of God unto Salvation and has the Power to turn Nations from the path of destruction away to the path of Righteousness. Like our Nation, who has a program soon to start to brainwash children in their early age, with a liberal-filthy teaching which in fact is literally “mental and spiritual child-molestation,” in this case done by the Government! It is the true Gospel, who can bring people and Government to their knees and turn them around and choose the path of life! The false Gospel cannot do it, because it has no power and will rather appease and compromise with wicked rulers, but the real Gospel can do it in one day!

This is the day to strengthen yourself in the Lord and to say nothing is lost; it’s not too late, because God is on the throne and the real Gospel works today, as in the days of Apostle Peter and Paul!

Dear Friend, these are the days of the real Harvest like apostle John saw in Patmos, and which is happening today as we speak:

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. Revelation 14:14-16

May the Lord give you the grace to be hungry and thirsty for the real Revival, the real Harvest, so He can prepare you and use you mightily in Jesus Name!

Be blessed,
Ueli & Charle’ LivingFire Ministry
