I know I keep saying this — but there are many who either haven’t grasped The Truth, or who simply don’t yet believe it!
“Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain.” So Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; then he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees, and said to his servant, “Go up now, look toward the sea.” So he went up and looked, and said, “ There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.” 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. So Ahab rode away and went to Jezreel. Then the hand of The LORD came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.” 1 Kings 18:41-46
Ever felt like you’re standing overlooking a scene?
I was just sitting, taking in the day, when The LORD took me to this scene at Mount Carmel.
I watched the cloud rise from the sea; I smelled the rain rising, the clouds billowing.
I watched the rain start, swept by powerful winds until it became a torrential downpour.
I watched people running to get out of the way of the ‘storm’ as it rose over the land.
I watched wave after wave of wind and rain as it lashed the land.
I felt the sting of the rain on my face and I rejoiced as it washed over and through me.
The analogy and interpretation was fairly obvious, but I checked with The LORD anyway.
“Just as the rain came and swept the sin and death from Carmel in Elijah’s time, so in this time will I come and cleanse your land,” says The LORD.
“But, even as I sent Cleansing upon the word of Elijah, so this time I will cleanse on My own word, for no man shall claim responsibility for the coming move of My Spirit!” says God
Then He added, in line with many recent prophecies, “Be prepared! Widen your tents for surely there is not enough room for the harvest to come.
Expand your Kingdom thinking! Forget your ideas and plans for they are too small, too limited.
Ask Me for My Plans, for My Thinking, and My Provision, for surely I will exceed all your Dreams and Visions.
Surely The Harvest I bring shall dumbfound you and you will bow your heads in shame at the ‘limitations’ you placed around My Plans.
Be prepared My precious children, for I AM coming — soon!”
Amen, let it be as The LORD has spoken.
