I declared the former things long ago and they went forth from my mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted and they came to pass, Isaiah 48-3
This is a unique day in which we are approaching, it is different than any other that history has yet passed through.
Then Joshua said to the people consecrate yourself, for the lord will do wonders among you. Joshua 3-5
And she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
And another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and his head were seven diadems.
And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven, and threw them to earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child Revelation 12-2,3,4
The adversary seems to always know well in advance before God moves in the earth, Its like he’s a step ahead of the event, before it becomes an event, he begins to lay the trap for the saints.
One of the common things that he does, is he sidetracks the people into accepting something that looks real, and has the appearance truth, but inwardly the thing is false.

We are given numerous warnings in the scriptures regarding the age, which we are rapidly approaching.
I believe one must exercise extreme caution of discernment, in what one might believe is from the spirit God. The bible says to test the spirits to see if they are from God?

Yes we all what to see God move in mighty ways amongst us, but we are told to test the spirits to see if they are from God.

Satan is the master counterfeiter, deceiver, tempter, slanderer, he knows us all to well, he understands and knows all our weaknesses.
