In this sermon, I am not saying that this is the last great tribulation coming to earth, yet I am encouraged to say that we are headed for very hard and dark times according to this scripture and prophetic word over this time. We are certainly as a church going to be sifted and chastised and experience tribulation. We are headed for darkness as this prophecy shares with us. Isaiah 60 New King James Version (NKJV) Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.
