The Body of Christ has an awesome responsibility in these last days. God is about to manifest His glory in the earth in an unprecedented way! In Haggai 2:6, we find the prophet speaking in God's behalf about some things that He intends to do. As we read it very closely, it becomes obvious that this prophecy is being fulfilled in our midst today.

There is more Bible prophecy being fulfilled today than ever in the history of the world. "For thus saith the Lord of hosts, 'Yet once, it is a little while; and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory,' saith the Lord of hosts."

This was spoken hundreds of years ago by the prophet Haggai, yet it sounds like the evening news. Entire nations are being shaken to the core! What was once the Soviet Union, no longer exists. Nations are being ripped apart by civil war. Tensions are mounting in and around Israel. He said when we see nations being shaken the next thing on His agenda is filling His house with glory!

The Glory is Coming!
Praise God! I know it doesn't look like the glory is coming. Sin is running rampant in the earth and there is no restraint where perversion is concerned. BUT, all God has to do to get rid of darkness is turn on the light and light dispels the darkness.

We need to live like the glory is coming. It is time to get our houses in order. God is not going to entrust His glory to the lives of worldly, carnal-minded Christians. God would not allow a priest in the Old Testament to enter the Holy of Holies if he was not properly prepared.

If he went into the glory of God without purifying himself, his life was taken. He could not stand in that kind of glory. There is going to be a greater manifestation of God's glory in the days ahead and our lives must be pure.

I sense in my spirit that something major is taking place in the spirit realm. It is a time of seriousness and a time to stand boldly and make sure that the "spirit of the world" does not interfere and distract us from receiving the glory of God.

It has been prophesied that by the time God gets through shaking things, there will be a financial inversion in the earth. An inversion is a reversal of order. In other words, the control of wealth will be reversed.

That sounds like Proverbs 13:22, "The wealth of the sinner has been laid up for the just." God is positioning the Church for His glory and His wealth. What is the purpose of the wealth? So we can spend it on our lusts? NO! For the publishing of the Gospel to the nations and then the end will come! (Matt. 24:14).

The nations being shaken is one indicator that the glory is coming. Another indicator is darkness in the land and gross darkness on the people. When we see these things taking place, the Lord says that the next thing on the agenda is GLORY! The glory of God! The power of God! The anointing of God in unlimited quantity!

In Isaiah 60:1 we read, "Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee." Have you ever seen such darkness? Men's minds are full of darkness and evil, and it's getting worse!

However, in verse 3 the Lord is talking about a time of great evangelism like the world has never experienced before. "And the Gentiles (heathen) shall come to thy light." They are literally going to see the glory on us. We won't be just talking about it. It will be ON US daily and those living in darkness will be drawn to the light. "Lift up shine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side" (v. 4).

The Lord is saying there will be revival in our young people, a revival in our children. If your children have had the Word of God planted in their hearts but have strayed from it, God says, "I'm bringing them home!" If your children have never been saved, God's mercy and love can cause them to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and to be translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light! Be encouraged, God's Word says that they shall come from far.

Then, the Lord brings up the subject of wealth again in Verse 5. "Then thou shalt see, and flow together and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee."

The word "forces" in Hebrew is translated as "wealth." You cannot separate His glory from the wealth. When the glory comes, the wealth is released. Wealth is coming into the Church for the publishing of the Gospel. Only the pure in heart can handle that type of responsibility.

God is calling on us to be pure of heart. He will be calling on us to be more responsible for greater resources than we have ever been responsible for before. Non-tithers will not be considered responsible. Very recent statistics show us less than 15 percent of the Body of Christ are tithers.

Not even 15 percent of the Body is carrying the load for publishing the Gospel to the world. That's sad.

We Must Get Ready
God needs some faithful people that He can fill with His glory and trust with His wealth. He wants to reach the lost while there is still time. That's the reason that I sense such an urgency in this message. We must get ready and in position for the glory of God to be manifested.

I believe that one of the greatest battles the Church will face is resisting the "spirit of conformity." Romans 12:2 instructs us to "be not conformed to this world." There is going to be such a strong pull to conform to the world because it is fashionable. The Philips Translation says, "Don't let the world around you squeeze you into its mold" (Rom. 12:2). First Corinthians 2:12 says, "Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God."

What are the characteristics or traits of the "spirit of the world?" First John 2:15-16 gives us the answer. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."

The three main characteristics of the spirit of the world are:
1) the lust of the flesh
2) the lust of the eyes, and
3) the pride of life.

Every worldly desire comes under one of these three categories. That's a picture of our society! How do you resist and overcome such a seductive, powerful spirit?

In 2 Timothy 2:22 (Living Bible) we see these instructions, "Run from anything that gives you evil thoughts, but stay close to anything that makes you want to do right. Enjoy the companionship of those who love the Lord and have pure hearts."

"Follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace with them that call upon the Lord out of a pure heart" (KJV).

RESIST the spirit of the world with every ounce of faith that is in you! Be on guard, be diligent and serious about your walk with the Lord. He wants His glory to fill the earth and He wants it to come on you! GET READY, THE GLORY IS COMING!

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
