The Lord Jesus has called me to be a watchman to His Church.  This calling demands that to obey  His Word such as,
Josuah 1: 6Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. <> 7Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. 8This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

And Rom.12: 1& 2 1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

To be worldly minded is death to be spiritily minded is life.  We can not compromise with the world and hear clearly the mind of the Lord.  When we were born of the Holy Spirit we were translated  from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light.  From the Greek culture of many gods to the one and true God the Father of Jesus Christ a culture of Truth of ultimate reality and righteousness.  Culture = from the root word cultivate to cultivate the society in ways of thinking, behavior, a social structure. We are not only called to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ to reconcile the world unto God the Father we are also called to to influence society with the culture of the Kingdom of God and His Son Jesus Christ the Light of the world and the Truth (true reality).  Matt. 28: 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Now back to Till We Meet Again.
The Lord, The Holy Spirit of  Jesus teaches and shows me what He sees concerning His Church and shares with me through dreams.  I'm what Joel said about old men having dreams.  I am 74 yrs old that ought to qualify me as an old man by the worlds standards,
I have for over 20 years been watching and crying to the Lord to turn back to the congregations His manifest Presence.  You will understand  if you  read my first letter on my web site.  I have been praying Ps. 80 for long time and singing to Jesus the song " Revive Us Again"

  I  now will share with you what I believe. That  Jesus is now calling to His hidden ones and is making up His Bride.
 I had a dream in 1990 and the Lord sang me a  song  that was sung by the World War 1 soldiers and I remembered it because my dad sang it.  It is a very heart felt song about the feelings of the loved ones of those soldiers that would be separated from them.  What the Lord was trying to tell me, was that He would not be visiting His church yet for a season.
But I just had a dream 6/27/05
I was siting at a table with some other people in front of a stage and to the left of a large congregation in a hugh  auditorium  and on the stage  was a chorus group singing "Till We Meet Again".  They were singing this song to the congregation and when the were finished one of the choral group came and sat down at our table  

The interpretation is this.
It is the Lord Jesus singing to the large congregation .  He is telling them  that he will delay his coming to the church at large or the worldly institutionalized church.  But He Jesus will visit a remnant that He has prepared for this day and hour like unto Gideons Army.  And like John the Baptist will not come out of the wilderness until the WORD of the LORD comes to them Luke 3:2.  Also Malachi 4:5  John did not go to Jerusalem or to any synagogues but went into the regains of Jordan and the  people came out to him.  So it will be with the called and chosen they will  minister  out side  of the church structure. 
Here are the words of this song.                                               

 Till We Meet Again.

Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you.
Then the skies will seem more blue,
Down in Lover's Lane, my dearie.

Wedding bells will ring so merrily
Ev'ry tear will be a memory.
So wait and pray each night for me
Till we meet again.

I would like to summarize what I believe the Lord is about to do.

Jesus  is going to bring persecution and tribulation to the apostate Laodicean  church.  John 15;
6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  and   Ps.  89: 30If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33Nevertheless my lovingkindness will
I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 34My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. 36His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
And  Luke 12: 42And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 
The remnant that are called out ones are those who will be the manifest sons of God and will preach repentance in love but also  with authority and firmness of the scriptures. As I said previously that they will minister out side of the organized church structure.  Those who are hungry for God will come out to them just like they did when John the Baptist ministered.  Not all will respond  to their message and like the Pharisees and their followers will reject this new word that will be revolutionary to the now religious structure and they will persecute it.  But they will not prevail their error and sins will be exposed.

Jesus said ,"John 12: 48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day."
Also Jesus said," Matt.10:26Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known."
And Mark 4: 22For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Read the Gospels and you will see a paralel of this church age and history repeating its self.

Prov. 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
May the Lord our God unite your hearts to fear Him.  So that you may have ears to hear the word of truth and eyes to see the Lord  the King of Kings high and lifted up in  His sanctuary.
Because in His presnce is fullness of Joy which is our straenth and health and well being.
 Bless God every one because of Jesus we are blessed.   Amen!
