When I woke up Tuesday, February 3, 2015, I had the oddest sensation that I was out of time. That was not odd to me because I had heard Kenneth Hagin tell the story many, many, many times about how Gordon Lindsay felt like he was out of time and his wife Freda would say “How come you’re staying up late? How come you’re hardly getting any sleep?” And he would tell her, “I’m running out of time. So I’ve got to write these books. I’ve got to finish these books.” He then went on to be with the Lord early. And so I was mindful of that. But I just had an experience in prayer a while back where I saw Michaela in high school. She had to have been a Junior or a Senior as tall as the girl was, playing volleyball. And so I thought “that doesn’t make any sense.” Also, I have felt for many years that God would give me at least the time that John Osteen had. So, you ponder these things in your heart and you go on.
Then I woke up Wednesday, February 4, 2015, and the first thought on my mind Wednesday was not, “I’m running out of time.” The first thought on my mind was, “We’re running out of time.”
Then on Wednesday afternoon, February 4, 2015, sitting in the café reading Matthew’s Gospel suddenly an anointing was being poured out on me like hot honey on my head and it was coming down my face. (The Bible describes this anointing of the Lord in the Old Testament.) And I felt an urgency that I have never felt in my entire life. I was just sitting there reading the Gospel of Matthew and I just had a sense that I may not get through the series “What Did Jesus REALLY Say?” I’m not out of time. This generation’s out of time. Jesus may come sooner then we could ever have imagined. I have never felt this in my entire life. I have never felt this about a sermon series. I have never felt this about a time frame.
Then during the 9:00 a.m. message on Sunday, June 21, 2015, the Holy Spirit specifically said to me, “You don’t have any more time.”
