The Fathers Are Birthing in the Latter Rain,
Follow Them! (2 Dreams)
My Dream of My Father and the Cloud
I had a dream that someone else had a dream, that my father had some sort of rod in his hand and a small cloud came down over his head and he raised up this rod into the cloud and it began to rain over his head!
In the dream, some didn’t believe that it was a God dream, but I felt that it was directly from the LORD because I could literally see the dream going on in the person ‘s head, who was having it.
I remembered in this dream of something that Wade Urban had taught at our Streaming night on Mondays. It was called “The Rain Maker Anointing.” When Elijah not only called for it to rain, but birthed it into the earth!
The Sound of an Abundance of Rain
“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. 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.
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. 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 18:41-46.
The Rain Maker Anointing
Wade Urban always says that it is one thing to prophesy the rain, but quite another to pierce the cloud with our intercession, thus, “The Rain Maker Anointing!”
Whenever I dream of my father, it is always about headship, (The Father’s in the body of Christ.) In Elijah’s case it was just after the victory at Mount Carmel where Elijah asked Ahab “How long will you halt between two opinions?”
If God, be God, then serve Him but, if Baal be God, then serve Him. Baal was the god that required child sacrifice!
I believe in this last election that we have seen God prove that His prophets were right and the prophets of Baal who wanted to continue in killing babies up to the ninth month were wrong! And He proved through miracles that He was for the Elijah’s (The prophets) and confirmed their word!
“And they went forth, and preached every where, the LORD working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen,” Mark 16:20.
Through Intercession the Apostles and Prophets Will Cause if to Rain in the Earth
I believe through this dream, that the same Prophets and Apostles who brought down Jezebel’s kingdom, will be the same ones who will begin to penetrate the cloud through their intercession and cause it to rain in America again!
They will begin to stand up and cause the people to continue to kneel down in that birthing position again and that the greatest days for the church of Jesus Christ are just ahead!
The LORD is saying in this, “I brought forth the prophets in this last election to speak My words and overturn the Spirit of Baal whom Jezebel worshiped and I will raise up the spirit of Elijah in these last days, to birth the rain that I want to fall all over the earth, through the fathers of my church!
They will lead the body of Christ into a New Birthing, that will make it rain! Yes! Baal will no longer take your children and your children’s children!
Many will not believe, but continue to follow the Holy Spirit in My Apostles and Prophet’s leading, for as they follow My presence they will open up the way into the Promised Land! This Promised Land will be that where righteousness reigns again!
Only do not quit when you cross over because their is still Jericho to conquer! There is still the ‘ites of the land, but this land will be a place where you will know that their defense has been taken from them! You shall go in knowing that I have given you the victory!”
My dream about the Jordan and 311
I had a dream before the election that many downcast people were standing on the edge of the Jordan River, and I looked across and Jesus was standing their bidding them across.
The number 311 kept appearing in this dream and to my surprise Joshua 3:11 had to do with the Jordan River when the LORD led me to it.
“Behold, the ark of the covenant of the LORD of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan,” Joshua 3:11.
Believe My Prophets and so Shall You Prosper
You see, God said to follow the priests in the above chapter, (read all of Joshua 3,) that carried the ark into the Promise Land.
God is showing us through Elijah’s showdown with the Prophet’s of Baal and through those who prophesied the outcome of this election, who’s God is God and whom we should follow. Those with the presence and authority to carry that presence! It is time to trust the God in the Temple or the Ark of God! (Which temple you are).
So it shall be said in the land 2 Chronicles 20:20 “Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.” “And then as I have promised through My prophet Joel.”
“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” Joel 2:23-29.
The Time of the Harvest
Lastly there was a phrase in Joshua 3 that I felt so drawn to and it was this.
“And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest),” Joshua 3:15.
You see, the river is overflowing it’s banks, because it is the time of the harvest and all of this that is happening right now is bringing us and preparing us for the greatest harvest that the world has ever seen!
This is why there has had to be a new mindset, and a New Birthing into the land of promise! The land of milk and honey and where the fruit is so big that we will eat of it and see the harvest come in!
Get ready 2017 will be a great time for those who will only Believe!
