The Present World Crisis
Edited from an article by
Seeley D Kinne

We have crossed the threshold of the "Day of the Lord." Mighty upheavals are at hand, as it is the close of the Gentile era. The entire structure of man-made governments, businesses, and religions, are ready for judgment by Almighty God Himself.

The God of Heaven is setting up His Stone Kingdom, an unending and indestructible order. Its princes and rulers are "prophetic overcomers." They are presently, like Moses, in the backside of the desert; or like Joseph, in prison; or like David, in the wilderness; or like Daniel, in heathen dissolute courts; or like Paul, in Arabia.

These are hidden in the school of Christ - presently being "tested" and "tried," and by fire, "purified." They will come forth at the appointed time as sanctified vessels, prepared for the Master's use.

In the schools of men, there are grades or degrees of attainment - so also in the Ecclesia, the school of God. Many attain to the 30 fold, some to the 60 fold, and a few to the 100 fold. There is a depth of "divine power" and "spiritual authority" that is lacking in present day spiritual vision and experience. Indeed, there were privileges enjoyed in the first Ecclesia (early Church), which are so completely lost, that it is not known what they were.

That these may again be known and enjoyed, "restoration" is prophesied to occur in the last days in connection with the return of Jesus Christ. This restoration will include all that was in the first Ecclesia, and much more, which has been foretold. There will be, a depth and completeness of salvation to the uttermost: spirit, soul, and body. There will be "overcomers," perfected and given power over nations, as restored apostolic ministries.

"And he that overcomes, and keeps My works to the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of My Father." Revelation 2:26

There is an urgent need for a greater revelation of the "Sovereignty of God," which will cause man to see his insignificance, and cause him up to seek help "only" from his Maker. Our intercession will release this "Intervention." Many times, down through the ages, God has stepped into man's activities and interposed His plans and ways.

Intervention originates in God and is an interposition by God. It speaks of God coming between and taking the initiative. Little progress in spiritual life can be made unless the "Holy Spirit" becomes our "Teacher and Guide."

One must have direct continued leading of the Holy Spirit to reveal the steps, and to carry one through His act of Intervention.

"And the Lord shall guide you continually." Isaiah 58:11a
