TIM LAUGHLIN: Who saw this temple in its former glory? (part 6)
“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall see visions. Also on My maidservants I will pour My Spirit in those days.” – Joel 2:28,29
Many of the Lord’s prophecies are two-fold in that they are fulfilled twice, the first of Joel’s prophecy was at Pentecost where 120 of the Lord's disciples were baptized in His Spirit, the second and final outpouring is coming to us who are living in these last days.
Jesus said no man would know the hour or the day, but would be able to discern the signs of the times and many of those signs have already come to pass. Wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis and disasters of all kinds have certainly happened around the globe, even the sun being turned into darkness and the moon into blood!
There is also a phenomenon happening around the world of strange sounds that no one knew what was causing them. One of our faithful men pointed it out to me a few years ago and he played it to our fellowship on his cell phone. I immediately recognized it as the sound of the Shofar, the trumpets of God were sounding an alarm of His glorious return! Are you ready?
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord, and it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Joel 2:30-32
