CHRISTIAN REVIVAL .. THE COMING REVIVAL .. REVIVAL PROPHECY .. APOSTOLIC RESTORATION
NOW AVAILABLE: Living Laodicea - a revelation of the last move [DN Hoets, 1991]
"We are on the eve of the LAST TIDAL WAVE - the greatest worldwide outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the history of the Church." Read more...
The intense global shaking began in 2007 with catastrophic floods sweeping throughout many nations. This gives us an indication of the timing of the LAST TIDAL WAVE as it comes ONLY AFTER the shaking has begun according to the prophet Haggai!
Understanding The Foundation
By DN Hoets
The Scriptures bring forth two aspects of the foundation of our faith.
The first is Hebrews 6. This is the foundational doctrines, which includes the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. The second is Apostle Paul's foundation which is Christ Jesus.
A few hundred years ago, the church emphasised the second part - the foundation of Jesus Christ. They had a strong foundation in Jesus Christ. Saints such as Jeanne Guyon brought forth this very clearly and in depth.
However, instead of keeping this foundation, the Pentecostal awakening focused on the restoration of the foundational doctrines and emphasised the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Many felt that they needed to break away from Andrew Murray and the old foundation. There was a break and the Pentecostal movement separated from historic Christianity.
Significantly, Apostle Paul emphasised the foundation of Jesus Christ more than the foundational doctrines. Even through they are essential, he emphasised the foundation of Jesus Christ. He was glad that he did not baptize many... which covers the foundational doctrines. So should not Apostle Paul's mix and emphasis be ours too?
God is bringing these together in the end-time move of God. He has been restoring the foundation of Jesus Christ, bringing a unity and maturity in the body of Christ. Much of the foolishness that has come forth in the Charismatic movement melts away when the classical foundation of Jesus Christ is restored. Even the unhealthy teachings of the Prosperity Movement will not stand when the classical foundation is restored. Everything comes into balance.
I find that most today in the ministry do not know the classical foundation. What happens is everything is off-base - whether doctrine or anything coming forth. Everything comes forth wrong if the foundation is not there. In other words, this foundation is very important.
What is important to God?
By DN Hoets
God will pass over a million today. He will pass over the religious. He will pass over those who are busy with crusades and evangelism. He will pass over those caring for the widows and the orphans. He will even pass over ministers of the gospel. What He is looking for is different. He is looking for the person who has a true inward walk with Jesus Christ. One who is established in the foundation which I have revealed on this website.
He will look at a professional in the secular world who is truly established inwardly in God and pass over a pastor who has lost or never truly known the inward way of knowing Jesus. Most pastors talk of having an inward walk with Jesus, yet their doctrine and words deny and contradict.
Many today appeal for finances for the widow and orphan. Some appeal for the work of evangelism. A lot of this comes under the cloak of religion. This is especially true in developing countries. God is looking for the inward foundation. That which is outward appears to be good is often discarded by God. He is looking for something else.
Many today are too focused on social media. God wants you to spend time with Him! Connections and relationships with others should fade in the light of His glory and grace.
Today, we say leadership is influence. However, Jesus once told a large crowd that inwardness was what He desired. Miracles and providing for their needs was what the crowd wanted. Many walked away. Jesus was not concerned about influence and numbers.
I have to go back a few hundred years to find saints who truly knew the inward walk with God. That, in itself, speaks volumes about the spiritual state of this generation.
Let us ensure that we are not wandering along and being carried by the winds of this generation. Let us seek God and learn His ways.
Why the entire church has missed it and needs reformation
Jesus spoke of this often emphasising the importance of a true inner walk with God rather than merely cleansing the outside of the cup and dish.
This means that you cant simply take the New Testament (at face value) and then do it as is taught almost everywhere today. Rather you need to have an inward foundation whch is Jesus and then you will fulfill the Word truly. This is more than the new birth and the baptism in the Holy Spirit. One needs to be established in Jesus and to know Him deeply.This is the mystery of the gospel.
You need to emphasise and teach the gospel differently. I turn on Christian television and hear this outward form of the gospel coming forth all the time. No one - not one - brings forth the inward foundation properly. One can only bring forth the gospel differently if you are first reformed yourself.
Unforturnately, most saints are blind and simply receive everything they hear, whether it is true or not. Simply throw in a few Scriptures and Greek words and that makes it acceptable! Not everything taught from the Scriptures is actually from the Scriptures. Ignorance and deception keeps the people of God from the truth.
Some truths of the inner walk that we need to learn...
You will hunger after God, and find Him, in the same proportion that you hunger after the cross.
It is impossible for you to truly love the Lord without loving the cross. (Guyon)
There is "no excitement" in the the inner walk. Nothing will move you, whether good things or trouble. A stability will become evident when one walks before God truly.___________________________________________________________________
Christmas message 2013
By DN Hoets
Greetings in the precious name of Jesus.
I believe, Christmas, is very significant this year, not only for the people of
your nation, but for the whole world. While we focus on His first coming at Christmas, His second coming quickly approaches. Even Billy Graham
has publically stated that the signs are converging as never before in history.
The sign of the blood moons begin from Passover, 2014. There has been a dire warning of a possible global currency reset from the IMF in the next few months. Judgments coming to the US. War in the Middle East.
The death of Paul Crouch and the sudden weakening of Billy Graham are very significant. There have been prophecies which indicate that only after the death of some of God's generals the final move of God will come. This ties in with the context of the four blood moons. The end of an order and a change in season. I ponder these things as South Africa mourns for Nelson Mandela, a great statesman.
As we watch and see all these things begin to take place, let us ensure that we are truly established in the salvation which Jesus bought for us at the cross. Let us be found standing on the Rock as the storm clouds begin to gather.
What do I mean by this?
Let me illustrate. Recently, I watched two well-known Spirit-filled men of God talk on cable television. They are household names. They are known throughout the world. One spoke of the importance of the Jesus prayer. What is the Jesus prayer you may ask? It comes from the early church. Men and women of God sought to pray unceasingly. By the way, praying unceasingly has always been what spiritual men and women of God have sought throughout the ages. They have never been satisfied with the status quo. They desire more of God. A touch from heaven is not enough. They desire to live in His Presence continually. Now, one of these men said that the way to attain this was to repeat the Jesus prayer (Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner). He said that he prays this all the time. The other man of God said that he also did that when he walked throughout the nations. He repeated the Jesus prayer over and over again. They stated that if you do this all day, you will even dream about Jesus at night.
My question to you is this. Is this correct? Are these two Spirit-filled men of God really established in Jesus?
Is there not a better way? How should we teach the saints of God to come before God?
(Note that this is for believers. One first needs to come to Jesus in repentance and receive Him as both Lord and Saviour to enter the kingdom of God. This is the beginning of the Christmas message.)
The second part is becoming established in Jesus.
The key is given below:
In our time alone with God, we turn our heart inwardly to our Lord Jesus and keep turning toward Him until our mind is collected and quiet before Him. We should then remain quiet before Him for a while. Often we will experience and enjoy His Presence here and we need to simply remain before Him: do not say or do or think anything as long as His Presence continues. The principle, again, is this: we should not move as long as He is near.
The awareness of our Lord‘s presence will lift after a while and this is the time when we need to speak a word, even simply His name - Jesus – and we will find that the sweetness of His Presence returns and settles on us. When His presence returns fully, we need once again to be still before Him.
There is a fire within you and it ebbs and grows. That fire, when it ebbs, must be gently fanned, but only gently. Just as soon as that fire begins to burn, again cease all your efforts. Otherwise, you might put out that flame [Guyon].
There is a fire of Divine love. It is this love which burns the believer and can even cause the believer to suffer. How? Sometimes the absence of the Beloved greatly affects the believer. The love of God intoxicates the believer and puts an insatiable longing within him to be changed into the likeness of his Lord. Therefore, it can be said of love... Divine love is as strong as death, for it kills just as surely as death kills. [Molinos]
When the presence of the Lord really becomes your experience, you will actually discover that you have gradually begun to love this silence and peaceful rest which come with His presence [Guyon]. We have come to something which is delightful. Tasted the genuine Presence of the Lord. We feel as if we are in paradise. We have found within our Lord something which is sweeter than all the pleasures of this world. Sweeter than honey. More precious than gold. Drunk the true wine of God. He has brought me to the house of wine [Song of Solomon 2:4a]. Here His Presence is like precious oil that heals every inward wound, a fragrance which comes over our whole being.
This is not only the beginning of true prayer but also the way to true worship of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Revival comes as true prayer and worship is established in the hearts of a remnant of His people.
This is the beginning of the way to pray unceasingly. It is not as the two men of God said. Their approach was wrong. It is similar to a heathen mantra, repeating a prayer over and over again. Instead, we need to learn how truly to become established in Jesus. This is how we learn to abide in Him and walk in the Spirit. Of course, this is only the beginning. However, many – such as the two men of God - have not grasped this simple truth.
If you grasp this simple Christmas message, you will be on the road to spiritual soundness and stability – standing on the Rock - as the storm clouds of this world begin to gather.
Have a blessed Christmas

2014 and beyond: Signs and Wonders
By DN Hoets
The countdown to the last of the last days started in 1948 when Israel was resurrected as a nation and God began to bring back the Jews, who have been scattered amongst the nations of the world, into the land of Israel - the land given by God to the Jewish nation.
However, the final countdown began in 2008. Acceleration began to occur. The signs were gradual and slow up to this time. Suddenly things began to change. The speed of convergence of the signs of the times has increased dramatically since that time. All the signs are present.
God spoke of this time through the prophet Haggai, 'I will shake heaven and earth.' I have written extensively concerning this revelation in other articles on this site. It was the time which God spoke to me about in the early 1990's.
The countdown began with an economic shaking. It is still an ongoing crisis throughout the world and will eventually lead to a big crash of the global economy when the derivative market implodes and the dollar collapses. A new world currency and eventually a global government headed by the antichrist.
The Spirit of God revealed the significance of this new season - the final countdown - to me as I had spent many years before God pondering the Book of Haggai.
In 2007, I first discerned the change of season. In 2007, unusual floods occurred in many nations throughout the world and they were all reported as the worst floods in living memory. This gained my attention that something was happening.
The late David Wilkerson stated in his book, The Vision, which he wrote in 1974, that the first sign of the final end time countdown would be a severe economic crisis. Economic confusion. He described the financial crisis (2008 and onwards) in detail. Most of the things have come to pass. Some are still to occur in the time ahead.
David Wilkerson thus confirms that this indeed is the beginning of the final countdown.
So far, we have been in the beginnings of the end time countdown. Haggai has defined this period. Now, we are moving further into the end time countdown. The second stage. The shaking will still continue. Drastic weather patterns. Storms. Typhoons will increase. Great earthquakes. The greatest earthquake in the history of the United States is still coming.
However, another Scripture defines the period ahead and brings forth more light.
Acts 2: 19-20
I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and
notable day of the Lord.
Remember the shaking affects both the heavens and the earth. Here, again, signs and wonders occur both in the heavens and on the earth.
The sign of 'Blood and fire and vapor of smoke' point to a significant war on the earth, probably the Syria and Ezekiel 38-39 war. Suffering will come to Israel. However, God reveals Himself as the defender of the Jewish nation and clearly declares to the world that He is God and is sovereign over the nations of the world. Great judgment will come upon the world at this time. Could the world economy and the dollar also collapse at this time? Something significant is coming and it seems likely that the Ezekiel 38-39 war takes place at this time.
The wonder in heaven is 'the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood.' This refers to the tetrad of blood moons and a solar eclipse which begins on Passover 2014. Watch John Hagee's presentation of this on u-tube.
The day of the Lord is the final 7-year period called the Tribulation according to the Scriptures. So according to the above Scripture, this occurs before the Tribulation.
Now, we need to look at the broader context of this passage. The verses before and the verse afterwards speak of signs and wonders amongst the people of God. The latter rain. The last revival and the final harvest are definitely found in the context of the above verses.
What concerns me is the foundation which needs to be in place for the last revival. I have zoomed in on this foundation - the rock-solid classical Christian foundation - as it separates the remnant from Laodicea and prepares the remnant for the outpouring of His Spirit in the days ahead.
These two revelations - Haggai and Peter's - give us a clear picture of the final countdown as well as a glimpse into the days ahead.
Straightening the message of the kingdom of God
By DN Hoets
Many have shifted from being church-centred to being kingdom of God-centred. This is a good thing. Looking at the big picture. Looking at the whole. However, it is best that one be Jesus-centred. To know Him deeply is what is important.
However, I find an inconsistency here. While many speak of being kingdom-centred, they still hold fast to doctrine which is church-centred or movement-centred. They speak of being kingdom-centred - seeing the whole, yet hold fast to only part of the truth.
The end time mature body of Christ needs to embrace both the old and the new. Both the Charismatic truths as well as Classical Christianity. There needs to be an integration. Some things will go. Reform is needed as this adjustment is made. It is Spirit of God's directive in these latter days.
Revival will break forth as true reform takes place. The bride of Christ will also truly become Jesus-centred as this reform comes forth.___________________________________________________________________
By DN Hoets
In the last of the last days, we live in the time of the outpouring of His glory. The manifest Presence of God. Widespread healings and miracles. The manifest power of God. However, Jesus also warns us of deception in this last hour. He mentioned it many times in Matthew 24 to emphasise the importance of it to the people of God. Lying signs and wonders.
Healing, creative miracles. People falling under the power of God. A revival? Is looks like it is of God, but is it? If we look at it from afar,it appears as if it is all of God. Many follow the move. This is of God they all say. The works of God are being done. People are being healed. Deliverance is taking place. Many are being saved.
However, some things are just not right. There is no true inward abiding in Jesus. The rock-solid classical Christian foundation is missing. As a result, the characteristic gentleness of the Holy Spirit is not there. The flesh predominates. Being alive in God is measured by how loud you praise God. Being free in Jesus is measured by how enthuisiastically you clap and how high you dance before God. To my astonishment, there are even songs with lines such as:
I am free to run....
I am free to dance....
I am free to live for You....
I will shout louder ....
I will jump higher....
I am free...
I am free.
Being desperate for God. Getting excited for God. Hype. A false unity. Often there is the fleecing of the flock of their money. Making giving a principle. A law of the kingdom. Promises of reaping a earthly return. If Kenneth Copeland is esteemed highly, beware! Always in sheeps clothing. Using the Word of God. However, if we look closer the things that they are saying are not in the Word of God. There is a mixture.
Sometimes, as in the Lakeland and Toronto movements, we see and hear even more strange things which contradict or stretch the truth of the Bible. Many gloss over these things. After all, the works of God are being done. The power of God is being manifest. Surely this must be of God. Not necessarily. Is it then all of satan? No. There is a mixture. Some of the miracles are genuine. Sometimes it begins in God and then changes. God is so sovereign. However, God allows this mixture to sift His people in these last days.
The foundation is what is important. More important than miracles and the power of God. If the foundation is not there, flee from it. Deception will take you on the highway to hell. There are many on that broad highway. Beware. There is nothing more dangerous than deception in this last hour. Beware.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The New King James Version. 1982 (Mt 7:21–23). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
Unfortunately, almost all the revival movements coming from the Charismatic movement of late have had this character. They have taken the short-cut. Remember the second temptation that Jesus overcame in the wilderness. Instead of taking the long, hard road of the wilderness, they have taken the easy short-cut. What you see is the fruit of such a short-cut. It is bad fruit. Is it not amazing that not one of the revival moves or waves coming from the Charismatic movement of late have been sound. Not one. This speaks to me that there is something seriously wrong with the foundation of the entire movement. That is why I emphasise the importance of the classical Christian foundation.
By DN Hoets
In the last of the last days, we live in the context of the outpouring of His glory as well as a lukewarm backslidden church. We need to fully understand and fully discern both of these aspects to please God and to keep away from satan's snares in the last hour.
Some only emphasise the outpouring of His glory. Others only see the lukewarm backslidden church. Scripturally, both have their place at this time. We need to be careful of ministries which only emphasise one aspect of the truth as they are probably blind to the complete picture and could well be in error.
Remember Malachi's words. He was the last prophet sent by God before a 400 year prophetic silence
until John the Baptist and Jesus came on to the scene. Malachi pointed out that the problem was a lack of reverence toward God. The religious people were blind to this. They were so backslidden and cold toward God that they could not discern it. They asked Malachi, In what way are we irreverent toward God? He replied, impure worship. In other words, a mixture.
At the end of the church age, the people of God have also backslidden. They too have a mixture. It is not all of God, none of self. Rather it is some of God, some of self. It is a mixture of doing and saying things in the Spirit and in the flesh. Often, churches are mostly in the flesh. They have a name that they are alive. However, they are really dead.
That is why the rock-solid classical Christian foundation is so important. It emphasises the cross and dying to the self-life. It shows the way to purity where there is no mixture.
When Jesus cleansed the temple, He was seeking pure worship in the temple, even under the Old Covenant. It was His prophetic declaration of war which led to the religious leaders seeking to destroy and murder Him on Calvary.
Consider Jesus at the beginning of His ministry. After 40 days in the wilderness, He was tempted by satan. He did nothing in the flesh. He did not speak of Himself to satisfy His needs. He only spoke in God. He would not speak to a stone - let alone a mountain - in the flesh. The self-life had no part in Jesus at all. In the second temptation, He would not do nor act in the flesh. This covers the religious realm. There was no self-life in His walk with God at all. This is dealt extensively in the middle stage of the classical Christian foundation.
The third temptation was to do with idols. We are also not to have any idols in our lives.
A backslider or a backslidden church has these characteristics. They say and do things in the flesh. There is a mixture. They usually have idols in their lives too.
Notice too that the abuse of the people of God with respect to finances is also a common trait of a backslidden church. Jesus exposed the religious leaders' doctrine concerning finances time and time again. They said it was acceptable to give all their wealth to the church and then be exonerated from taking care of their parents in old age breaking one of the 10 commandments. It is also true in the closing hour of the church. Preachers promise the blessings and miracles of God if the saints sow financially into their ministry.
(This should not be confused with financial miracles in the realm of His glory and that which is genuinely of God)
We need to ensure that we truly understand what it means to do things in the flesh. We also need to look at the chapter concerning worship in Living Laodicea (downloadable by clicking on image of book). It shows how through wrong teaching in Bible schools and seminaries, much of what comes forth in the Charismatic movement today is in the flesh. Although much truth comes from the Charismatic Movement such as the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, there is much blindness today. Some who say they are in revival are actually backslidden! It is significant that one who was caught up into heaven was shown the same thing. God showed him that a typical Charismatic church was backslidden. This is very different from what they are telling us. This backslidden condition is very broad - it affects denominations, the Charismatic Movement and even the Catholic church.
The Glory of God
By DN Hoets
Once we truly come to live and minister in His glory or His manifest Presence, our lives will forever be different. This is the way of the end-time revival, the final move of God throughout the earth. We need to enter into the fullness of His glory and it is God who draws us into this place sovereignly. Here we put away childish things. Everything will change. Miracles will be common place. Great authority here.
Two aspects of the change are seen on either side of the mountain of glory, Matthew 17. Just before Matthew 17 - Matthew 16 - and just after He came down from the mountain.
Just before Jesus took the inner circle up to the Mount of Transfiguration, He revealed the truth of taking up your cross daily. This does not mean that all must go into full-time ministry. We need to understand the cross properly. Look at the rock-solid classical Christian foundation which emphasises the importance of the cross.
On the way down from the mountain, it comes to the attention of Jesus that the rest of His disciples fail in delivering an epileptic. They were not ministering from His glory. They had not come from the mountain. They ministered in faith. Jesus reveals to them that the problem is not a lack of faith. Rather He tells them that only faith as small as a mustard seed is needed. In other words, faith is a minor nor a major. Their problem was that they were not ministering from His glory which comes with "prayer and fasting". In the realm of His glory, the gift of faith comes forth. There is no emphasis on believing and confessing as it is easy to receive when His Presence is manifest.
This is the picture of the church which He spoke of in Matthew 16. He wants His church to be living is His glory with this balance and maturity. This is the end-time mature church which begins with the revelation that Jesus Christ is the Christ, the Son of the living God. It is also in this realm of His glory that binding and loosing become truly effective.
I pray to God that all those who are reading this - all the affiliate churches of this ministry as well as those everywhere - may know His glory in its fullness in these end-times. All the keys and the way into His glory has been clearly revealed in this website.___________________________________________________________________
The mark of a true apostle
By DN Hoets
Apostle Paul was glad that he had not baptized many in water because none could say that they were baptized in the name of Paul. It seems reasonable that although Apostle Paul taught the foundational doctrines, they were not his main task. His mandate from God was to establish the foundation Jesus Christ in the hearts of men and women in the churches that he founded.
This, too, I believe is the main emphasis of the true apostles whom God has raised up in these end-times. Establishing Jesus (knowing Jesus Christ deeply) is the mark of a true apostle. This is the whole message of the rock-solid classical Christian foundation.
Can it be done in any fashion? I don't believe so. True apostles will not come in Charismatic clothing. Instead they will come bringing REFORM to the Charismatic movement in these days. The doctrine of the coming move is different from what is mainstream today. It is all about establishing Jesus Christ according to classical Christianity together - bringing Charismatic and Classical Christianity together, uniting the church and bring a wholeness which has never been seen before. The final revival comes on the wings of reformation.
The Freudian slip
By DN Hoets
When you hear leaders and whole churches shout or scream out to God in praise, is that not a Freudian slip? Yes. If you have become established in Christ as shown in the Classical Christianity, then yes.
Why? As you become established in Christ, you become more and more constrained by the Spirit of God. If you do some things, you will feel the hurt within. It is so distinct and painful that you simply can't do some things. It is the Holy Spirit who restrains us. One thing that one so transformed into Jesus can't do is to shout and scream to Jesus as is done in some Charismatic circles (and as is taught from the Old Testament)!
There are other tell-tale signs - sure giveaways - that one is not truly established in Jesus. Can you name a few?
PS: If you live mainly in the Outer Court, you will surely not understand a word that I have written. Yes, that is correct. Some of what comes forth from the church today is backwards.___________________________________________________________________
The secret of grace flowing from your lips
By DN Hoets
Many today have either lost or have never known the true anointing. Many say that they have it "in faith". Some have it in a measure. However, the mixture in their doctrine and lives grieve the Holy Spirit and they will never enter into the fullness of His glory. The Outer Court is their main dwelling place. Only occasionally do they enter the Holy Place. Seldom the Holy of holies. Almost all in the Charismatic movement today are here. When worship becomes mere singing... when worship becomes dry... There are very few who have this... one in a million. Those who have stumbled on this often don't understand it and can easily lose what they possess - heaven's treasure.
The key to entering fully into His glory lies in embracing truth very different from what you hear today. This truth is found in the rock-solid Classical Christian foundation and God truly needs to reveal this to you. Only when you are truly established in these things and have no mixture will you know fully the secret of grace flowing from your lips.
I testify that the world is evil
By DN Hoets
Not only is the world getting darker and darker, more violent, more perverse, the youth more arrogant and self-willed in these latter days, evil grips almost all as everyone seeks and pursues their own ways and their own pleasures. Godliness is forgotten. Almost none seek His plan, His purposes nor find all their pleasure in Him. The things of His kingdom are not all which consumes them. Most of what the average person considers "normal" and "acceptable" is evil in the sight of God as the self-life dominates. Religion will not save. Only a heart that surrenders itself to Him can come into an abiding fellowship with Him and do all things in and through Him. The evil one has even ensnared many amongst the people of God with false and distorted doctrine keeping them entrapped in the same deep darkness which covers the world.
I testify that the world is evil and hell awaits for most! The Way is narrow and few find it. Only those born-again and who are His very own will escape what is coming upon the world very shortly. The Way is Jesus Christ (knowing Him inwardly) as the Scriptures declare and He is the foundation. The rock-solid Classical Christian foundation simply expounds this truth and unravels the mysteries of God which are often hard to come by due to what is coming forth from the pulpits throughout the earth today. It is the Way to deep inward fellowship with the Son of God and His glory - the dew of Heaven - will remain on those who walk on this narrow path.
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you. I would like to be present with you now and to change my tone, for I have doubts about you. [Gal 4:19-20]
Compare some of words of Jesus with the Laodicean church today.
For you are like graves which are not seen, and the men who walk over them are not aware of them. [Luke 11:44]
Many centuries ago, to touch or walk over the dead rendered one unclean. Jesus was stating that doctrine can be like this. Why? It appears to be the Word of God, but in truth, the substance, which is Christ, is missing.
Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered. [Luke 11:52]
The key of knowledge is often hidden from theologians and those well versed in the Scriptures! We can become "lawyers" knowing the letter of the Word. However, the substance is not there. Very deceptive.
A gospel from heaven
By DN HoetsGod has entrusted me with a heavenly gospel of Jesus Christ, not an earthly gospel. What is the difference between a heavenly gospel and an earthly gospel?
Consider the precept, love your enemies. An earthly gospel says take this at face value and simply do it. The heavenly gospel says God is sovereign, so receive all people, even your enemies, as from the hand of God. Never receive anything as from the hand of man, but as from the hand of God. This has always been the Middle Eastern mindset. A stranger was received as one sent by God. The spiritual man abides in Jesus and this is done according to the heavenly gospel, taking up His cross daily.
Consider, submission. Submit to one another. Many look at this from an earthly perspective - from a people perspective. However, the heavenly gospel says receive both superiors and inferiors as from God. Here we submit to all in God. We are sensitive to the Holy Spirit and His prompting. However, the backdrop is living in His Providence and submitting to His hand in all things. We receive people as from the hand of God and not from the hand of man. How different marriages and even churches would be if this was lived out in truth.
Much of the way Old Testament saints did things and worshipped God was earthly and mostly in the flesh. Under the New Covenant, we worship God differently. Let us not follow the earthly way, but the heavenly way.
Consider much of what is taught today from marriage teaching to leadership principles. Most of what is taught today is earthly. We need to find again the heavenly gospel of Jesus Christ - the secret of truly walking in Him and in the light. When, we as a people of God, move from a heavenly gospel to an earthly gospel, we become lukewarm and lose the spark of heaven's touch.
What lies before us
By DN Hoets
In 1991, I wrote of the approaching storm in the Preface of Living Laodicea (1991):
I saw in the Spirit, a globe - a globe of the world. Surrounding the globe was a thin layer of cloud. Suddenly the clouds began to gather.
The clouds deepened. The winds blew. A chill was in the air. A thunderstorm was emerging. Soon, there was only one cloud over the globe - a large thundercloud. A storm is approaching the earth.
The Holy Spirit said, 'Look in the Spirit. What do you see?' I looked. I saw nothing; so I replied, 'Nothing.' The Spirit spoke again, gently, 'Look again.' I looked. I saw a large, china jar in the Spirit. It was empty inside. Then I saw another jar, but broken. Then the Spirit spoke: 'Much of the doctrine today is like that jar - beautiful to behold, but no substance; it is found wanting in My balances. Look at the other jar. Indeed this doctrine will be like the broken jar. All will see it and say, 'Behold the jar. Look. It has no substance.'
The Spirit showed me a chariot in the Spirit. A horse-driven chariot. The dust rose as it moved over the plain. Then the Spirit spoke:
'The chariot is rushing on,
the horses run furiously;
when all things must be
Today, twenty years later, we are in the midst of that storm. It began in 2006-2007 and it will increase in strength and intensity as the nations of this world descend into the second dip – the coming great depression or total economic confusion which eventually leads to a global government headed by the Antichrist.___________________________________________________________________
Doing things in God
By DN Hoets
There is a difference between doing something FOR God and doing something IN God. Jesus spoke of this in John 3:21:
Jeanne Guyon wrote of this in Final Steps In Christian Maturity.
But he who does the truth comes to the
light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that
they have been done in God.
One of the first things a spiritual pilgrim must learn
is to be quiet before God and to remain before Him -
coming without any request or even any personal will in any
If the believer chooses to act on his own he is, of course, hindering
the progress of God.He is being active strictly for his own activity's
sake. He has chosen to do something FOR God rather than BY God.
As he begins to come before the Lord, it is better for the believer
to learn to die to all influences of motivation that originate in
the self. If one remains before the Lord without will, he becomes
like soft wax, a perfectly manageable instrument in the hands of God.
Let us not be drawn into the world's endless futile activity and busyness. Many preachers also fall into this snare of performance and endless busyiness doing things FOR God and not IN God and BY God.
Knowing Him as both Jehovah and Elohim
By DN Hoets
All born-again believers have a
with Jesus. However,
knowing Him deeply and having
a stable, solid relationship comes only to the extent that we have become established in the classical Christian foundation. Here we begin to truly know Him as Jehovah.
All believers have also received Him as Elohim i.e as the Creator (In the beginning God) of the universe. However, many have not understood the fullness of knowing Him as Elohim. He is our Sovereign Lord and all the end-time events such as earthquakes are in His hand. Satan can only do that which he is permitted to. Satan is a dog on a leash!
Learning to receive all things from His (God's) hand is only possible if we have a deeper revelation of Him as Elohim. Receiving all things from His hand (taking up His cross) is essential if we are to truly abide in Him, grow up in the things of God and to overcome in the end-times.
We need to know Him both as Jehovah and Elohim; not just as Jehovah or only as Elohim as unbelievers do.
Haggai: the Book of Tomorrow
By DN Hoets
Haggai has been an important book to me over the years
as it gives clarity to the last of the last days. I have spent
much time before the Lord in this little book of two chapters.
Where are we today? In Haggai 2: 21-22. Here the Lord says ,
I will shake heaven (first - climate change - and second heaven) and earth (compare with Haggai 1: 6-9)
I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms (Arab uprisings)
I will destroy the strength (United States- this can be seen to be broader than only the US) of the Gentile kingdoms.
I will overthrow the chariots
And those who ride in them;
The horses and their riders shall come down,
Every one by the sword of his brother. (indicates a more violent civil war outcome of uprisings)
I will... make you as a signet ring.
I see that the falling of the United States as a world empire is sandwiched between the second and forth I will. In other words, it takes place during the time of the Arab uprisings. The economic meltdown will affect ALL nations as all things in the book of Haggai are global in nature. Haggai 1:6 gives us the clue to the economic impact of what is to come and to hyper-inflation as the key problem. In other words, the dollar becomes worthless.
This is already taking place as we come to Passover this year with the US debt being center stage of world headlines as well as gold and silver reaching record highs; the dollar reaching record lows.
Some of you may be asking? Will God protect me if I invest in silver and gold? Although there is some truth in that oil, gold and silver are the best performers during hyperinflation - I believe even gold and silver will eventually be shaken. 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine' (Haggai 2:8) refers to the 'buy from Me gold' in Revelation 3. God has never sought a wealthy end-time church but one which has the true foundation as given in the rock-solid Classical Christian foundation and which is full of His glory... only made possible by what our Lord Jesus did for us on Calvary centuries ago, purchasing us by His own Blood...
By DN Hoets
Just a short while ago, the nations of the earth
been shaken by the Great Recession.
are still in a fragile state and are still
in the process of recovering.
Once again, fear and uncertainty grips the world as another great earthquake and a likely nuclear meltdown in Japan unfolds. This fear and uncertainty comes forth clearly in the financial markets. Iran (together with Syria) seek nuclear weapons with the intent to destroy Israel, wars (Libya) and rumours of wars abound (Arab nations) affecting the oil price and inflation, as the earth trembles in the last of the last days.
Haggai spoke of the worldwide shaking that would begin before the coming glory at the end of the age. The Lord Himself spoke of five signs in Matthew 24 and two signs in Luke 21 which would increase in intensity and magnitude like birth pangs before His return.
While these signs are a humbling call for the lost to repent and to turn to Jesus Christ, believers are not to be troubled but to lift up their heads for our redemption draws near. We are to have a heavenly perspective and not to fear. This perspective has often been marred by the church and really needs to be grasped in these turbulent times. The rock-solid Classical Christian foundation brings forth this heavenly perspective that we need to be established in and will keep us rooted and unshaken in our Sovereign Lord Jesus who has the whole world in His hands.

Special Bulletin by Rick Joyner: Japanese Earthquake, A Prophetic Demarcation in Time
In this Video Special Bulletin, Rick Joyner shares about the Japanese earthquake, which was prophesied 22 years ago, and how this event signifies the beginning of a worldwide economic meltdown. Rick also shares about another massive earthquake that has been prophesied to hit the west coast sometime after the Japanese shaking. The unraveling of the American economy is coming, and we must prepare. However, this does not mean we are without hope. This is a wake up call for us, and we can wake up to perhaps one of the greatest opportunities in history for good to triumph over evil. (Bob Jones 22 years ago)

David Wilkerson in The Vision 1974: The US is going to experience, in the not-too-distant future, the most tragic earthquake in its history... Another earthquake, possibly in Japan, may precede the one that I am seeing coming here.... there is worldwide economic confusion just ahead... I see total economic confusion striking Europe first and then affecting Japan, the United States, Canada, and all other nations shortly thereafter.
A lot of what David Wilkerson saw years ago was not really fulfilled in the past Great Recession. However, it seems that it is a double-dip recession and the second dip is just ahead!

Pat Robertson's Prophecies for 2011
The word was in 2012 the man who is going to be elected president, will preside over quote, "an impoverished nation" – it's hard to believe that could happen, but it can quickly.
"Your country is in grave peril. The leaders have hearkened to the demands of interest groups and have led your nation into bankruptcy. In two years will come a time of reckoning." "Your creditors will demand payment and there will not be enough to satisfy their claims. Your currency will shrink in value, your bonds will lose value, people on fixed incomes will suffer, unemployment will escalate, and there will be turmoil."
