First and foremost, a revelation of the Third Day Church will reveal the Father's purposes for these present times and seasons that are now upon us.
The purpose for this present visitation is to bring us, as a church, into the glory of God. The Master is preparing His bride, a glorious church. As we enter into the Seventh Day of God and the Third Day of Christ, we will find the Lord is there (Ezekiel 48:35) in His house, in His church that has prepared herself to contain His glory (Ephesians 2:20-22).
The end of the sixth millennium has passed us by, and a bright new day stands before us. The Spirit of the Living God is declaring the beginning of a new day. The Sun of Righteousness is beckoning to His bride to leave the old behind and come and cross over into the Third Day.
These are the days of the fullness of time when the restoration of all things will come to pass. The Third Day Church will be restored to a pure doctrine, and therefore, the power of Pentecost will be witnessed once again.
Those who have been persuaded of the prophetic reality of the Third Day will not be bound by fear of the future. They will not run with the doom and gloom crowd. They will instead be looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith. They will not have an escapist's mentality, but will be looking forward to doing mighty exploits with their God.
That day spoken of by the prophets of old has become this day, the Day of the Lord, the Seventh Day of God, and the Third Day of Christ. In 2 Peter 3:10 the apostle Peter states that the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. The apostle Paul agrees with Peter and also writes:
1 Thessalonians 5:2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
The Day of the Lord begins in obscurity of the darkness of the early morning just prior to the first rays of the morning light. This is the time period that we are presently in. This is the reason that most of the church does not perceive the coming of the Third Day.
The first light of this day is given by the revelation that Jesus will come as the Morning Star before He comes as the Sun of Righteousness (Malachi 4:2). Those who are asleep will not see the beginning of the Day of the Lord. The light of this day will first be revealed to our hearts.
2 Peter 1:19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
The last chapter of the Bible that is a Revelation of Jesus Christ reveals how He will first come and identifies the invitation that will be given to enter into Zion, the City of God. (Revelation 22:14)
Rev 22:16-17 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star." And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
The Bride will dwell in Zion, the City of God, and the anointing (streams from God) will prepare the people for the day that is coming.
Psalm 46:4-5 There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
Jesus left us with a prophetic illustration of His coming to His church in the darkness of the morning when the church is storm-tossed. In Mark 6:45-51 Jesus sends His disciples out onto the sea (of humanity) and then He goes up to a mountain to pray. This is a type of the Great Commission being given and the ascension of Jesus to the right hand of the Father where He ever liveth to make intercession for His church.
Just when the church is struggling for survival, Jesus comes to His church. He comes walking on the troubled waters, and He comes in the fourth watch of the night. The fourth watch is from 3:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.
The Day of the Lord will come even as our natural days do. This is according to the pattern of creation when God created the first day.
Genesis 1:5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
The Day of the Lord will then progress just as our natural days do. First the morning darkness gives way to the first rays of the sun. The sun will then produce the light of Christs rule on the earth for a millennium.
This is the day of Christ's power, and the dawning of this day is bursting forth from the womb of the morning. The bright and morning Star is shining forth in the darkness of this present age, and the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!"
These days will be wonderful days, filled with the joy of the Lord. These will be the days of the manifest glory of God. The whole earth will be filled with the glory of God and the fullness thereof.
Precious Heavenly Father, open the eyes of our understanding that we might perceive what a wonderful opportunity that You are giving us to enter into this, the Third Day. This is the glorious day of Your power. Help us, oh Lord, to be volunteers to follow You and do Your perfect will. Let the Spirit of this present age be birthed in us, and let us be found in Your perfect habitation in this hour. Amen.
