Fading of The Crescent Moon

Fading of The Crescent Moon

Leslie Lyons, Adventures In Faith

July 20, 2004 (Re-post of 7.20.2004)

While sitting outside in the night air, I noticed in the sky a sliver crescent moon. God spoke to me the sign of the crescent moon in the natural is the sign of the Muhammadans. He spoke to me, that this is a waning sign and symbol that will pass. Two years ago, I saw the same moon, and it dominated the night sky. It’s spiritual presence filtered into the earth, and even outshone the other constellations. For Christians, as then, as now the Muhammadans dominate world events. But God spoke to me this is going to change. As I was looking at the moon and pondering this revelation, a single black cloud moved over the crescent moon and obscured it. I do not know the times or seasons. But the times of Islam may be drawing to a close. Radical Islam and the consequences it produces, will be overruled by the Living God of heaven.

God instructed me to blow the dust of this prophetic word, and take it off the shelf. I went back and reviewed world history, especially during the take over of the faith by the Ottoman Empire. It appeared to me Islam took a sharp turn and bend toward extreme violence. Whether this is a result of political, social or religious fervor I do not now. Nor is it the important thing at this time and day.

The important thing is as the Lord Jesus reveals Himself to all the tribes and nations of the earth, they will turn to Him with a grateful heart. They will worship and adore the King of Kings, Lord of Lords! They will not need floor mats, holy water, or voting booths to bring in the kingdom. Religions, governments and social institutions will fade into the background as we witness the resurrection power of God Almighty flow into the earth.

“Behold, behold. I AM coming in power and prestige. Not as a Lamb. I will assume my rightful place upon the throne. The earth is my footstool, and heaven is my habitation. Blessed are those who seek my holy name, for they shall be filled. This is the Faithful and True who says these things sayeth the Lord”.

“The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted, The God Who avenges me and subdues peoples under me, Who delivers me from my enemies; yes, You lift me up above those who rise up against me; You deliver me from the man of violence. Therefore will I give thanks and extol You, O Lord, among the nations, and sing praises to Your name”. [Rom. 15:9.] (Psalms 18:46-49 AMP)

And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen. (Psa 72:19)

The Dangers and Pitfalls of Religious Dogma and Doctrine

And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. Else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskin will perish. But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved together. Also no one having drunk old wine immediately desires new, for he says, The old is better. (Luke 5:37-39)

Search The Scriptures to See if These things Be So

As the new move of God descends upon us we need to be aware of why God is birthing forth this new movement;
“You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me!” (John 5:39 AMP). We cannot rely entirely on human prophetic revelation to direct the church on earth in which way we should proceed. Prophetic words are confirmed by two or more witnesses; “But if he will not hear you, take one or two more with you, so that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established” (Matthew 18:16 MKJV). But if the church is going to progress in that word, it requires love, unity, wisdom and understanding. Along with revelations we need to stand on the unshakably rock of the WORD.

Religious Dogma and Doctrine

I have heard it said that there is over 12,000 Christian denominations and sects on the earth. And why is there so many different faiths and beliefs? It is because there is disagreements in Dogma and Doctrine. This is all derived from the simple fact that Scripture is interpreted differently by different people. All of them are convinced that they hold the keys and truths to the kingdom.

This is why I believe, the next move of the church is all about. We have a sovereign God, but not a sovereign head of the body of Christ. We have a church, but it is disconnected from heaven. It is not moving in the power and commission the risen Lord gave it to accomplish. But more importantly, the Lord Jesus is not given full reign to which He is entitled.

It requires a consensus on the direction and goals that the throne sets out before us. Or to put it in the old school terminology, dogma and doctrine. These are stumbling blocks that have created 12,000 sects and denominations. And these are the stumbling blocks that will split the universal church on earth in half, when this fantastic, unbelievable move of God erupts. Rick Joiner wrote an applicable book, called “The Harvest”. It vividly describes the conflict between the dogma and doctrine of the old establishment and the new church order that will emerge.

Flexible and Bendable

So that we do not get entirely caught up in conflict and disagreements, we have to be spiritually flexible and bendable. We have to be open to the Spirit. We who participate in this world wide revival have to be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove. We may not be able to avoid this conflict, nor should we entirely. But we should keep our heads in the clouds, and our feet on the ground. Jesus taught this principle; “Do you suppose that I have come to give peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division. For from now on, there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And He also said to the crowd, When you see a cloud rise out of the west, immediately you say, There is a shower coming. And so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, There will be heat; and it occurs. Hypocrites! You know to discern the face of the heaven and the earth, but how is it that you do not discern this time?” (Luke 12:5-56 MKJV).

Scripture is the Key to Confirmation and Consensus

The WORD of God is the essence of the risen Lord Jesus. It is pure, holy, righteous, merciful and love. It is a compass to the easily deluded human mind. It provides a narrow golden path for us to follow. “For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12 MKJV).

This coming movement of the kingdom of God on the earth will not only be a massive, unprecedented harvest of souls, but a shift to a appropriate and proper kingdom oriented church. I believe God will release the spiritual meaning of Scriptures during this time. It will resemble how the angels in heaven read the Book. Not in how it relates to worldly natural things.

Our Lord Jesus will shine in his magnificent glory of wisdom and love. He will be uplifted to his rightful place as the head of the body. We shall behold Him as he really is. “And He said to them, When you pray, say: Our Father, who is in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, as in Heaven, so also on the earth” (Luke 11:2 MKJV).

“Heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool. What house will you build Me, says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest?”. (Acts 7:49 MKJV)
