People of God, there is a FULLNESS of time that is coming.

A moment when and where the things of God come to completion and fruition.
In fact, there have been over the course of the ages, many “fullness-es” of time that have come.

When the Lord has a plan, a purpose, and a promise that he is creating with the intention of having it prevail in the life of a believer, a band of believers, a remnant church, a nation…as in Israel’s case, The Lord sets up a calendar of events so to speak, and begins the process of turning it in motion.

His calendar has set times and seasons.
There are marked starts and stops.
All through history, there have been places and times of great deliverance…in some cases, discipline, depending on what his people did with the knowledge they possessed.

God’s overarching calendar, the one that controls and administers the dispensations throughout time, will not change.

There is an absolute starting point for humanity, and likewise an ending point, but in the middle of all this, there are times, seasons, places where the plans and promises of God meet up with the people of God to create a fullness of time.

God Is Sending The Fullness Of Time

And when the fullness of time reaches its apex, the Lord begins to pour out his promises on his people.

He begins to DO THE THINGS that have been promised, prayed for, and sought after by the people of God.

And truthfully, right now the Lord is speaking that there is a FULLNESS OF TIME on the verge of coming to pass.

Yes, Jesus is coming.
Yes, the end time is approaching.
But before these things happen, in fact, in very close proximity, time wise, there is a fullness of time coming for the people of God.

I am feeling it in my spirit.
• Promises made will be promises kept.
• Prayers prayed will be prayers answered.
• Plans spoken will be plans performed.

As the people of God, our job is to KEEP PRAYING…KEEP PRESSING IN…and KEEP ON GOING UNTIL we see the fullness of time begin to pour out upon God’s people!

My kids love water parks.

One place we go has a number of buckets up high in the air, and the buckets fill up with water, and the more full they become, the buckets begin to TIP OVER.

You can SEE IT when the bucket starts to tip.
WHAT HAPPENS?
My kids will run to the bucket that is about to pour out and it will splash all over their head and run down. They love it!

Here’s the thing…
There are “HEAVENLY BUCKETS” being filled right now with the promises of God, the power of God, the Revival of Holy Spirit, awakening, outpourings, harvests, healings, miracles, the move of God…and if you open your eyes in the Spirit, you can see that the buckets are beginning to TIP OVER.

In some cases and places, the first outpourings are starting to fall.
Once the buckets begin to tip, they won’t stop until the complete contents have been totally emptied onto the people of God who are under the bucket, waiting to receive .

Here’s what we must do…

We must RUN TO THE BUCKETS!

I sense God holding a bucket of his power over us, and we must run to get under what God is about to pour out!

There is a FULLNESS of Times THAT IS COMING SOON…beginning already, if we are ready to receive it.

Scripture, speaking of Jesus, says this…

Galatians 4:1-7 NKJV
[1] Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, [2] but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. [3] Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. [4] But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, [5] to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. [6] And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” [7] Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

When the FULLNESS comes, God always SENDS FORTH!

We are reminded of another time when the Father brought things to a fullness of time.
When Jesus came, it was fullness of time.

The earth had been without a prophet for about 400 years.
The people were in bondage spiritually.
Even though they were the rightful heirs of life, they were in bondage.

God had them in places where they could be protected, so to speak, UNTIL…
Until the time.
Until the coming of Jesus.
Until the promise arrived.

But WHEN THE FULLNESS OF TIME HAD COME…God SENT JESUS!

When the FULLNESS comes, God always SENDS FORTH!

He brought redemption…
He brought the opening up of the plan of God…
He brought deliverance to those in captivity…

God sent his Spirit into our hearts calling out, “abba Father.”

In the same way, The Lord has been storing up great and precious promises for the people of God, promises ready to be revealed in this last day hour.

The bucket is tipping.
The fullness is about complete.
Out pouring is about to take place.

I cannot express any more forcefully that THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO GIVE UP!

• It is the time to press in.
• It is the time to go forward.
• It is the time to believe greater, stronger, and more.
• It is the time to seek God.
• It is the time to step out in faith.

God has a fullness of Time that is NEARING COMPLETION.

What did Jesus say over 2,000 years ago?
He said this…

John 4:34-38 NKJV
[34] Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. [35] Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

Often, we think that there is still work to be done, and sometime we are right…but by the same standard, there are moments when GOD IS ALREADY READY!

When the bucket reaches FULLNESS, the Lord of the harvest will pour it out.

[36] And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. [37] For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ [38] I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”

We have entered into the labor of those that have worked, toiled, sweated, and prayed for years and years.

Their work is complete, and our work combined with theirs is about to culminate into awakening, power, outpouring, and miracles.

You DO NOT WANT TO MISS WHAT GOD IS ABOUT TO DO IN THE EARTH!

Get under the bucket IN HIS HOUSE…IT’S THE PLACE OF OUTPOURING.

Scripture says…

Ephesians 1:3-10 NKJV
[3] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, [4] just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, [5] having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, [6] to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. [7] In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace [8] which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, [9] having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, [10] that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth-in Him.

This phrase, “dispensation of the fullness of the times,” has great meaning.

Here is the literal Greek wording in this regard…
Dispensation is the word:
oikonomia
Phonetic Spelling
oy-kon-om-ee’-ah

It is where we get the English word, “economy.”
An economy is essentially a system of interaction and exchange by which things are managed…in this case, the house of God.

Strong’s Definition is this:
From G3623; administration (of a household or estate); specifically a (religious) “economy”: – dispensation stewardship.

The dispensation then is an ECONOMY, an administration, and a management of the household of God.

The word, “FULLNESS” means literally:
“That which fills something.”

One commentary definition is this…
“In the NT, the body of believers, as that which is filled with the presence, power, agency, riches of God and of Christ.”

So that as God is JUST ABOUT TO GATHER ALL THINGS TOGETHER INTO ONE IN CHRIST, there is coming a dispensation of the fullness of the times, which is literally:
The administration to the house of God, the body of believers, a filling with the presence, power, agency, and riches of God and Christ.”

Yes, Jesus is coming…but YES, there is a fullness of time coming as well.
The bride of Christ being filled up, glorified, unified, cleansed, purified, given greater power and authority, greater presence of God, the riches of God and Christ, outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

This passage also says…

Ephesians 1:13-14 NKJV
[13] In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, [14] who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.

Holy Spirit IS the guarantee that we are a PURCHASED POSSESSION OF JESUS until the completion comes and Jesus comes to redeem us OUT OF THIS WORLD Holy Spirit is the main thing.

We must begin to look for the bucket to tip.
We must be ready for the outpouring of Holy Spirit.
We must keep ourselves in the PLACE OF HIS PROMISE.
We must press into what is already taking place.
We must recognize the times in which we live.
Lastly, we must hold on, and not quit, so that we will RECEIVE ALL that God has to give in this last day move of his Spirit and harvest of souls.
Don’t back down people of God…
Fight every devil.
Fight every evil.
Fight in prayer until you win in prayer.
Fight against anything that tries to bring down your spirit.

If you listen, you can already hear the sound of abundance of rain COMING!
The buckets of God’s promises, plans, and presence, beginning to be poured out on his people!

My heart is for the church that Jesus is building and returning for...the church that the gates of hell will not prevail against.
More than anything, the desire of my heart is to see the greatest revival of the Holy Spirit, salvations, spiritual awakening, and for the miraculous to come back to the church, preparing believers for the return of Jesus.
