"To whom also He shewed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God." (Acts 1:3)
For several days, I have been hearing the Lord say, "I've got something up My sleeve." When I asked, "Lord, what is it?" He said, "Only those who are close enough to Me, leaning against My breast, hearing My heartbeat and leaning on My everlasting arms, will see what it is. My people have heard from CNN, FoxNews, NBC, MSNBC, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. It is high-time they hear from Me."
I sensed His heart was beating fast with excitement to tell us. As I kept leaning against Him, I heard the Lord say, "It's Showtime!"
Giant Marquees Were Lighting Up
In the spirit, I saw these words on giant marquees in front of theaters, hotels and many buildings throughout the world: "It's Showtime!" He was announcing to planet Earth that He was showing up in a sovereign way to heal, deliver and manifest His glory. It was a kairos time to show and tell cities and nations what He had to offer. Just when we thought every light on Earth had gone out and the stars had fallen from their sockets, His light is returning to the world, expelling darkness.
I was amazed as I saw Him overruling people's belief systems and revealing Himself to them. He was touching atheists who didn't believe in Him, but He believed in them. Witches, those in the occult, Hollywood stars and many of His own people who, through great trials, afflictions and hope deferred, had turned away from Him were still being pursued by Him.

It was a day of His appearing once again, as He was making public appearances throughout the world by visions and dreams to individuals, including world leaders and mass gatherings. To many, He was the uninvited guest who had invited Himself.
Jesus Steals the Show
Jesus was taking center stage. He was stealing the show. It's not that we've been intentionally putting on a show ourselves, but it was His answer to our cry for the Lord to do something more in us and through us and beyond us. He was taking what we were doing, adding His touch and putting it on the big screen in HD and 3D-Technicolor.
It was panoramic, being seen far and near – ricocheting off the surface of the earth to the high heavens, and back again with great force – impacting the whole earth, as though it was being shaken at once with His glory. Freedom bells rang throughout cities and regions of the world, decreeing, "It's Show Time."
A familiar Scripture came alive, gripping dark places of the earth... "Nathanael said to him, 'Can anything good come out of Nazareth?' Philip said to him, 'Come and see'" (John 1:46 ESV).
Unknown Stars Rising Out of Chaos and Gross Darkness
"...so that you may become blameless and pure, 'children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.' Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky." (Philippians 2:15)
"Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever." (Daniel 12:3)
"We Own The Night" has become the motto of unknown stars now rising. These hidden ones, in long seasons of darkness, discovered revelation manna that they couldn't find in daylight. One revelation was this: "Trouble means you're alive!"
Another profound finding was that great darkness held the keys to unlocking the doors of nations, as their light began piercing through the keyholes of these doors, showing forth the glory of God. (Photo via Unsplash)
God Is Picking Up His Paint Brush
God is using chaos and gross darkness as His canvas, and He is picking up His paint brush. The ashes of our dreams mixed with tears have become God's paint. It will be an oil painting, for He is stirring in the oil of joy. A brilliant portrait is coming forth to light up the world. Be still...it's you!
I then heard the Lord say, "It's showtime for My people who have been to Hell and back. They are My living proof that when you go through Hell, you catch on fire!"
Whispers From Back Stage...
• When it looks like it's impossible for me to win, God is setting the stage for something greater.
• "Lazarus discovered that I don't wear a wristwatch." –Jesus
• For those who have strained relationships and feel forgotten by others, leave the front porch light on with a thousand watt bulb.
