By amazing “coincidences,” Michael, in his pre-Christ life, learned of two secret plots to assassinate him. Read about them in the links at the bottom.
In what can only be described as a series of Divine Supernatural events, beginning with a Pillar of Fire, Michael was plucked out of the hands of those who had planned his death. God was not done.
Not long after this Michael got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit and married the girl of his dreams. Shortly another supernatural event, a vision one night after church, defined how God would use Michael in the future. He did not fully grasp it back then.
See page 32 -33 in Exit Strategy. (I quote briefly)
“This was something that had never happened to me before. I felt drawn to my last feelings, my last impression of what had happened during this amazing vision, what it all meant, if anything. No, there was no “if.” I knew it had to mean something! I was in the ocean, the “Jesus” life preserver, the beach covered with money, the Statue of Jesus?”
“As I recalled to myself, everything was beautiful as I went up in the statue, until I was in Jesus’ head. Then all else faded into my periphery. All I could see was my view of the openings, I was trying to look out through them. The thought then came to me that “You are going to be able to see through the eyes of Jesus, seeing as He sees.”
“What? In my mind, I was hearing my voice but I knew I had not originated that thought, let alone the vision. I wasn’t sure what to think at first. It seems crazy.”
“All that came to mind in the moment was that God wanted me to understand what I would be seeing and that I would understand what He would show me. I did not fully grasp the ramifications until 31 years later. After that vision I saw things and understood things in the Word that I was not hearing preached? Like Mary, I pondered those things in my heart, until now.”
Now, 38 years after getting reconciled to God (saved), 37 years after that vision, Michael believes that, as in God’s plan for every man, his personal hour has come, for such a time as this. Souls are at stake.
Because of the nature of the message, it is possible God’s prophecy through Daniel 12 is being fulfilled in the awakening message of the book Exit Strategy and these postings.
The reconciling spirit of Elijah can also be seen in these messages within the book the blog and the radio programs, as forgiveness (for one thing) speaks to fathers being reconciled to their children and children to their fathers; a prophetic event.
Do not be deceived, except for obedience, it is never the man, it is the message and God within. Those now well known would have been nobodies without their obedience and God choosing to use them.
As foretold in Daniel 12, the awakening message is distressing, even contradictory to some traditional doctrines and will mean distress for all initially, resulting in the protection of and maintaining of eternal life for some and everlasting contempt and damnation for others. Even some believers, those who are disobedient, those who take lightly or outright reject the very practices, the protective words and teachings of Jesus, will meet disaster. Some can yet be protected. They lack understanding. The is no Carte Blanche with God. (Look it up)
Yes there is new or expanded understanding for such a time as this. However be confident these are still and always have been the words of Jesus to us, from the Father. We can always trust the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and the men He chooses to use.
As a man with the gift of exhortation, Michael is also challenged by the motivational gift of prophet within him. One gift makes friends, the other makes enemies.
An exhort-er desires the best for his fellow man. The prophet wants the best also. In the prophetic gift, one is compelled to say what God wants said like Mose’s prophet Jesus, greater understanding comes forth. For our sake it is with confirming scripture. Half of the New Testament is quotes from the Torah and the Prophets!
The Prophet speaks while dying to man’s approval, and remember that is for the sake of man, in obedience, for “His name’s sake.”
YHWH, God’s name means salvation, what the people heard back then was and what you will hear or read now will be a deepening to what you have believed or been taught. Jesus, speaking for the Father, did the same. All the Prophets did the same and perished for it. Never the less, they were proved right and even more so in these days.
The rescue of many “believers” from the Apostasy will be by their prophesied awakening to God’s expanded understanding, as revealed by the Holy Spirit and those who present it.
Daniel 12:3 (NASB)
“Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”
This is an understanding we have had only glimpses of until now. Never the whole but only partial. The whole was always there. As Jesus said, we needed the Holy Spirit to guide us to it.
John 14:26 (NASB)
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.”
John 16:12-13 (NASB)
12 “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.”
Do you doubt that the Holy Spirit will again, just as God did, use the willing persons to offer whatever is lacking, the deeper and timely understanding, the now more necessary “saving knowledge” of Christ Jesus?
All the more in these times and the circumstances now occurring, our preparation is critical to our protection. The additional understanding is paramount.
The disciplines now being revealed or emphasized as critical to our eternal life were always to be required of us. Many Christians can not handle them even now but that is the point! We all must like never before. The disciplines are initiated of Christ! Yes they will be distressing just as they were to Jesus. God is to find out, as He did with Jesus the Son of Man, mankind is able by the Holy Spirit but will we in fact awaken to righteousness or to ever lasting contempt as it states in Daniel 12:2.
Those whose love grew cold were believers. Those who endured to the end were followers. They knew what was required of them and delivered,. Matthew 24:13-14
This expanded understanding is a clearer view, a vision literally through the eyes of Jesus that will shake things up like never before. It calls us to demonstrate our obedience to the Way. Yes that is distressing news to many if not all. As we feel distressed be glad that we confirm the Word written in Daniel 12. The Lord is coming! Be glad! It does not matter what is happening. Stay righteous!
Let us ask ourselves, does God have the right to see, to know our will is set to obey Him no matter what comes upon us? Didn’t He ask the same of Jesus? Are we greater than Jesus?
Revelation often appears as controversial. Controversy sometimes holds revelation. Jesus was controversial and held revelation!
These blogs, the book “Exit Strategy,” and also my radio program “Night Light with Michael Knight” where I speak often but not always in controversial terms, revealing a view likely not seen before with scriptural confirmations, all are these efforts are to save souls and raise leaders to save souls, souls sitting in our churches now!
These are the souls whom have asked Jesus to be Lord but have never made Him Lord. Jesus says many of which will be lost in the Apostasy. Are they any less important and worthwhile than when they knew Him not? I say more so! God forbid we forsake them.
Like Noah, our obedience in these days is literally going to save others or our disobedience will curse others.
Be instructed in how we will initiate the “hour of Darkness” which then initiates the return of Jesus! In that sense we initiate the return of Jesus as we bring a war upon ourselves, just as Jesus did. The Way Jesus won, we will also to His glory!
FYI- Exit Strategy is NOT about a day or an hour. It is not the doctrine of “kingdom now.” It is however about events that we now see and those yet to happen of which Jesus spoke. It is about a prophecy of His (Matthew 24:14) and our calling to fulfill that prophecy world-wide by our preaching “Enduring, saving, love” “this” good news of the kingdom!
