APOCALYPSE – RIGHT NOW!
Our generation has completely destroyed the word “apocalypse.” To our generation, apocalypse means “the worst thing that can possibly happen.” It couldn’t be further from the truth.
The word “apocalypse” actually means “the unveiling,” “the revelation” or “tadaaaaa!” It’s that light bulb moment – the moment of clarity – the epiphany, the bombshell, or the lightning bolt. And with Jesus, it’s always, always personal.
You’ll be driving down the road and come across this billboard and then “Boom!” – this deep, amazing truth comes into your life through the simplest of means and it’s personal and exclusive to you.
You go to tell your family and it’s like looking at a deer in headlights. It was a revelation just for you. So there are a lot of things you and I experience in Jesus that we go through years of loneliness because we want so bad to share it with other people and we don’t know how to explain it.
You know what? Because of this, it’s very easy for us to mistake exclusiveness for loneliness. The Body of Christ has not done a very good job talking about the exclusive way you individually know Jesus.
Here’s what’s real: there’s a way Jesus makes sense to you and there’s a way Jesus reveals Himself to you and you reflect Jesus. How Jesus shows up to you sets a precedent in your life of how you walk with God and how you demonstrate Jesus.
This is normal Christianity. If you’re going to have a real relationship with Christ, you’re going to have to seek His presence, even when you’re driving down the road, so Jesus can download some revelation into your heart. That’s intimacy.
That’s an apocalypse, right now!
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” – John 17:25-16

TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Being in My presence should be your joy, not your chore. If you’re forcing yourself to spend time with Me, stop. Be still and know that I Am God. I will fill you with a longing to know Me more.
