For many years the body of Christ has been crying out to God for another great revival. There is a scripture in 1 Kings 18:41 when the Prophet Elijah had told Ahab that there is a “sound” of an abundance of rain. He then prayed and sent his servant to go and “look” towards the sea. The servant didn’t see anything, so Elijah told him seven times to go back. He then returned and told Elijah that he saw a small cloud rise out of the sea, as a mans hand. This was a sign that the rain was coming. Then it came to pass that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. In the same way, some of us are hearing the sound, and some are beginning to see a cloud as a mans hand, but there is an abundance of rain approaching.
The Lord says;
“I am sending an abundance of rain, the latter and the former rain. As you launch out in faith and open your spiritual eyes, you will begin to see the rain arriving. As you open your spiritual ears, you will hear the sound of revival approaching. I am about to bring many streams together for this great outpouring and as you look, you will begin to see a small cloud as a mans hand. In this season of rain, ask for the rain. There is a dimension that is available to you and as you step in and allow Me to take you deeper, you will begin to experience a new level of My glory. In this time of acceleration, hearken unto My voice and surrender yourself to Me. I am looking for willing and obedient vessels who will be carriers of My Glory, and usher in the latter day rain. Do not stay on the outskirts, but enter in to what I am releasing. Do not count yourself as unworthy, but many will be used who are in a hidden place right now with Me.
The days ahead will be glorious for those who receive. Many things will transpire and multitudes will be brought in to the Kingdom. Many will experience breakthroughs of significant proportions. There will be great miracles that will accompany this outpouring. What seemed impossible with man will become a natural occurrence. Do not be influenced by those with wavering faith, but stand steadfast knowing that I will watch over My word to perform it.
Have nothing to do with those that try to cut off the flow of My river. Do not allow anything to deviate you from this truth. Do not become discouraged when the darkness appears to be dominating, because it is the dark clouds that are carrying the rain. You will see that the glory of this latter house is going to be greater than the former house, and in this place I will bring peace”
… says the Lord.
“And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul, Then I will give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, your new wine, and your oil” Deuteronomy 11:13-14.
“Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!” So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.'” Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain” 1 Kings 18:44-45a.
“Ask the Lord for rain In the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone” Zachariah 10:1.
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath” Acts 2:17-19.
