Get Your Glory Bag Packed! Kenneth Copeland 21 November Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.... I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.

You need to understand that when those verses talk about “blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke,” they are not talking about destruction. No, those come before the day of destruction. Those are the signs and wonders in the heavens above and in the earth beneath during this outpouring of the Spirit. Notice the next line: “Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered [saved].” That’s not destruction. That’s revival! I asked the Lord one time, “Lord, how will You do that? How will You make the sun not shine?” He told me He will block out its light with the cloud of His glory. That shekinah cloud of God has been manifest both in the old and new covenants. In the old covenant, Israel saw it as a pillar of smoke in the daytime and a pillar of fire at night. In the new covenant, that same fire was manifest on the Day of Pentecost. God said to me, I’ll make that cloud get so thick on whole cities, that people can’t see the sunshine. Then He added, That’s the reason you need to be ready. What He said to me, I’m saying to you. If you want to be in on this, you need to get ready. You need to quit criticizing your fellow believers and get the sin out of your life. You need to fast, pray and learn how to win souls. Go practice! Learn how because when God’s power falls and His glory cloud hits a whole city at one time, men and women will fall under the power of it, crying out to God. Then when it hits, they’ll be looking for it and the only place they’ll see it is on God’s people and His churches. Thousands of people will come running to those churches. God will give us whole cities at once. Not only that, this move of the Spirit will grow until we get whole nations flowing into the mountain of God. Then the voice of the Lord will come more plainly and clearly to you than you’ve ever heard in your life. He’ll begin to tell you what to do, what to say, what song to sing, how to pray, and we’ll see multitudes healed and born again. We’ll see homes put back together, and the glory of the Lord will be throughout the land. When that happens, you’d better have your glory bag packed because we’ll be raptured out of this place! Ezekiel 36-37; Psalm 111 I call upon the Name of the Lord, and I am saved. Joel 2:32
