Rolling Blackouts… Rodna Epley

Hi everyone! With record low temperatures in many states, -20 degrees this morning in some places in Oklahoma, and the electric company performing rolling blackouts to conserve energy, the spiritual significance of this physical manifestation of darkness is not lost on me. The coldness of hearts in the world toward our Father in heaven and the rolling blackouts of the power of God in people’s lives is an indicator not only of the current spiritual condition for many, but also of the great glory of God that is soon to be, at the point of being released upon the earth through the church, Christ’s body, through those of us who are called by His Name.

An increase of darkness and evil is clear evidence, albeit negative, that the dawn of God’s glory is about to be revealed in us and in the earth. It is an opportunity for us to measure how magnificent His glory is about to roll in with surging eternal and uninterrupted power through all those who are called by Jesus’ Name and dare to operate in His glory in these times.

Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be (soon to be, at the point of being) revealed in us…

Darkness does not have to bring fear or despair. We have been given the power in Christ to roll back every form of darkness that we encounter. It does not take a lot of effort on our part either. It only takes stirring (waking) up His glory (Christ, the gift, the treasure) in us, a desire to see the darkness leave, and confidence in the name of Jesus and His Word, also the boldness to act upon it.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Romans 8:19-21 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
