“One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the LORD. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.” What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?” “Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied. And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled,” 2 Kings 4:1-4.
How Many Will You Believe Me for?
I posted a Word on Facebook yesterday and when I did the LORD spoke to me and said, “How many people are you going to believe Me to reach with this Word? According to your faith so be it!”
He then reminded me of a Word that I wrote a few years back from Him called “Shut The Door And Begin To Pour“.
He reminded me of the above passage from 2 Kings and said “I would have kept filling as many jars of oil as she would have brought me!”
And He said, “I will send this Word to as many as you can believe Me for.”
I said, “Three hundred” and that is exactly how many people were reached, but then He said, “If you will enlarge your thinking, I will keep pouring it into the vessels that you believe for!”
There Is Something You Forgot to Do Before Can Pour!
He then said, “Here is something that people are missing about that passage of scripture though.
They forget that she had to shut the door first!”
He said, “There are many who will hear this Word today who need to know that I want to do exceedingly abundantly above all that they ask or think in this season, even more than they want me to.
I want to pour out of them to the full potential but they have to shut the door on the past that is holding them back.
They have to shut the door on the lies that they are not able to take the land!
They have to shut the door on the enemies taunts of ‘you are too old now, you are too fat, too sick, too broke!’
They have said too much about you and ruined your reputation, your family is looked down upon, your children are ‘out of whack!’
You have to first shut the door on the lies of the enemy and anything that is stopping you from believing me for the maximum amount of people that I have already planned on you reaching!
You have to ask Me and believe you receive!
You have to think bigger than you are, because I AM the god of an endless supply of oil that I long to pour into the vessels that you will believe me for!“
It is time to believe, to ask, to seek and to knock.
It is time for the harvest and I need My people to believe bigger!
I need My people to forget those things that are behind and take hold of the great big God inside of them!
All things are possible to you who will believe in this next season!
It is time to trust the God that is inside!
It is time to pour the oil that I have an endless supply of into every vessel with the gifts and talents that I have equipped you with!
I already ordained this before the foundation of the world!
Don’t allow your past to keep you back this time!
Awaken to your destiny and shut the door and begin to pour!“
