Luke 1:17 (MSG) He will go before the Lord as a forerunner, with the same power and anointing as Elijah the prophet… And he will prepare a united people who are ready for the Lord’s appearing.
Any great manifestation of Jesus usually requires a forerunner to prepare people. Israel was on the cusp of the Messiah Jesus’ appearance, but no prophetic word had come to Israel for 450 years. Succeeding generations had compromised their faith. They needed a forerunner to preach repentance and prepare them for the Messiah. Have we lost our way as a nation? As we stand on the cusp of Christ’s return, does the world need forerunners who will usher in a revival? We need the Holy Spirit’s power and anointing. God is calling us to be a united people who are ready for the Lord’s appearing. Let’s be forerunners and prepare the way for the Lord’s return!
