I heard The LORD say, “Do not despise this Revival!”
Superabundance is upon us, which is what the devil cannot shut our mouths from proclaiming.
We dare to still prophesy, because God is daily bearing witness and commanding us to keep proclaiming.
What is happening now is nothing new to God. Elisha prophesied superabundance in the day of Israel’s captivity to the fear of the Syrians. “A lord said… even if The LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be?” (2 Kings 7:2).
But it came to pass at the right hour even as The LORD had purposed (2 Kings 7:1-8). To the natural it looked totally impossible, but to The LORD it was to him an announcement to the world of his sovereignty over all things.
Elisha’s prophecy to Israel at that hour and the situations surrounding them at that time are synonymous to our present condition.
There is a sound of abundance in God’s Kingdom. It may not be sounding the way many want it but those who see and hear it is becoming louder each day.
The rain is upon us, but look at how the rain came in the days of Elijah when he prophesied three years of no rain and then prophesied the return of the rain,
“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain,” 1 Kings 18:41.
When Elijah heard the sound of abundance of rain, I do not think the people were seeing lightening and hearing thunders. Things were still in the state they were.
“So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times,” 1 Kings 18:42-43.
Elijah prophesied the rain, but the servant went and saw nothing.
Thank God for this faithful servant who kept on going to see without calling the Prophet a liar. This servant kept on believing and responding until out of the nothing he was seeing, something popped up.
“And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down that the rain stop thee not,” 1 Kings 18:44.
There is a powerful lesson we can learn from the above scripture. The abundance came forth in a way many would despise …. there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea…
Just a little cloud was the door opener to the abundance. Little things are happening to us right now that are the beginning of the superabundant harvest.
“And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel and the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel,” 1 Kings 18:45-46.
That little cloud led to clouds, from clouds to winds and from winds to the great rain. When the rain came, the hand of God made Elijah to run faster that Ahab to Jezreel.
Oh those that wait upon the LORD shall be strong, they shall mount up with wings, and they shall run and never get wearied.
In an encounter with the LORD, last year December, as we were preparing to enter into 2020, I saw a great revival that began very meager. I saw people despising the revival that was upon the Church and the LORD spoke and said, “Do not despise this Revival!”
The Holy Spirit witnessed with this scripture;
“For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth,” Zechariah 4:10.
