That is called “inspiration.” Notice that it came from God to man, not from man to man. Peter said the Word of God is not the private interpretation of man, meaning that the Word of God did not originate from man no matter how great an intellect he may be (II Peter -21).

In Deuteronony , God said that He waited until all the men of war died before He brought Israel out of the wildernis.
According to the Torah (The Law), an Israeli male could not go to war until he was 20 years of age (Numbers 1:3).
Therefor, when all the men of war had either been killed or died by the age of 60 (a 40 year period), God brought Israel out of the wilderness into the Promised Land.
preaching and teaching (The make me feel good motivation teaching) has supplanted revelation and many saints are following these highly paid speakers.
Truth is not founded upon either an intellectual or emotional presentation of the Word of God that often alters it to make it more acceptable to the hearers, but upon God’s original intent, which is to make us more holy and righteous in our character and conduct.
Am I implying that it is going to happen exactly as I say? I think there are several clues which give us a key in determining the duration of the END TIME GENERATION.
First, the Greek word for generation is “Genea” connected with “Ginomai” which means to become; primarly signifying a begetting or BIRTH; or race of people possessing similar charateristics, pursuits, etc.
Jesus was led away by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil for 40 days representing a complete period of testing.
