The new day begins at 6.00pm

If I remember correctly, the earliest I heard of this "global" prophecy was more than 5 years ago. It was during a series of special meetings by a man of God who have personally experienced many genuine moves of God. From hindsight, I could see the scripture (Amos 3:7) at work, i.e. "Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets." I believe that even among His servants, there are those who are closer to Him than the rest. This is because after hearing the first time what God is going to do in the world through the mouth of His servant, I have been hearing more prophets declaring the same in recent years. It's amazing that those prophets who are closer to Him would receive the revelation of His secret years earlier in comparison to the rest.

The crux of the revelation is contained in Isaiah 43:19:

Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.

When I first heard this quickened verse whereby God is telling His people He is doing a new thing in the world, I was very excited. A new day is coming! But, as with many prophecies and promises of God, after a passage of time and when we still do not see the fulfilment of these words, we become weary of waiting and we've lost the initial excitement and enthusiasm we had when we first received the promise.

During the last weekend, a visiting speaker shed some light onto this subject. She mentioned that God told her "The new day begins at 6.00pm".

Wow! What a revelation indeed. The Jews observe Shabat from Friday(6.00pm) till the next day (6.00pm). 6.00pm is a time when little sunlight is left before darkness of the night creeps in. And we have the entire night season until the sun rises early next morning.

We are living in times and a season where God is doing a new thing. Perhaps some of us are in a night season. And we could not see how God is going to fulfil His Word or whether His Word is true after all. But, do not forget "The new day begins at 6.00pm" God allows us to go through a certain time of darkness. In fact, the world is going through 'a season of darknes' now. There is a purpose in every season of our lives. It could be a time of pruning. Or it could be a time of preparation and equipping. It is a time we die to our own abilities to fulfill God's dreams and purposes in our lives. And certainly, the time of the birthing forth of His purposes in our lives is at hand. Amen!

  1. The Lord is doing new thing in this last day, even the new thing that the world yet to witness and see. The new thing, new glory, new miracle, new signs are confirmed by the scriptures:

    Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:30-31 ESV)

    Blessed are those who are pure in the heart, for they shall see God. The world using the mind to analyze and limit the movement of God. We should not put God into frame and limit. He is doing new thing and He is our 'boss'. If we allow God use us to do His work, we shall see the glory of the Lord, manifested on the earth, and we become His gateway, the distribution centre of His Glory.

    What a blessing it is to read your posts. I always sense the heart of the Father when I hear what He is saying to His people. I loved the article on "New Day!" A word fitly spoken. \0/

    Isaiah 52:8
    Thy watchman shall lift up a voice; and with a voice together they shall sing! For they shall 'see' eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

    Keep up the pen of a ready writer.

    Love to you in Jesus,
