New Strength & Overflow Is Coming
As we step into May, the Lord showed me we’re stepping into a time of overflow and abundance. This also correlates with Pentecost coming up at the beginning of June and the word I released for April that things we’re breaking open. As things are beginning to break open and the resistance is shifting its making way for a new flow of the Spirit of God to be released in you and on the earth. Jesus declares this in John 7:37-39 NLT, leading up to Pentecost, “Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! 38 He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.39 But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor). 40 Listening to those words, some of the multitude said, This is certainly and beyond doubt the Prophet!”
In this prophetic season as we’ve celebrated Purim and Passover, God has been positioning his people for divine kairos moments. God has been exposing the “Hamans” and releasing deliverance from the “Pharaohs,” to position us to walk into the new and a place of overflow. Another prophetic marker to recognize in this season is, Nisan the first month of the Hebrew calendar. New things are starting and springing forth because of the new season. The Hebrew meaning of Nisan is first fruits and the first month of spring. This prophetic indicator is also matching the natural season of spring that we’re stepping into. Get ready for new things to begin to manifest. Just as things in the natural are shifting and lock downs are unlocking in the world, it’s a prophetic glimpse of what taking in the spirit. Be anxious for nothing and let perseverance and patience have its perfect work in your life (James 1:4). God is working all things together for your good.
In April I mentioned we’re entering in a season of divine angelic activity, and that as sign of this would be record winds and tornados. The winds are being released to bring change and break down systems. We’re going to continue to see greater angelic activity upon the earth. I even see some news stories covering “mysterious angel encounter.” Just as the winds are increasing there are some of you that have felt like the wind has been knocked out of you because of blow after blow you’ve taken. I want to encourage with what I heard the Lord say recently concerning this, “Tell my people they’re going to catch their breath in this season. Where you have been weary and tired, take a breath. When you take a breath, you’re breathing in My Spirit. Faint not My Beloved, breathe. There’s a fresh wind coming to you that will refresh and energize you for the journey ahead! There’s a new strength coming to you.” There are many of you who feel like wind of been knocked out of you but is restoring the wind you lost with a fresh wind. This is needed as we enter in to the second half of 2022, the pace and intensity is picking up.
The Glory Train
Let’s take a look at 1 Kings 18:41-46. Earlier in this chapter Elijah has a showdown with the prophets of Baal and defeats them. After this took place, Elijah begins to pray for the rain because it’s been three years since it last rained. 1 Kings 18:41-46 says, “41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!” 42 So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees. 43 Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea. “The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.” Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. 44 Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.” Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’” 45 And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. 46 Then the Lord gave special strength to Elijah. He tucked his cloak into his belt[g] and ran ahead of Ahab’s chariot all the way to the entrance of Jezreel. “It had been three years since it had rained in the land.
After the showdown, Elijah began to first hear the sound of a mighty rain storm coming. He got in the posture a prayer, the birthing position and began to call forth the rain. On the seventh time, which is the number of completion, it was finished now the rain could come. Elijah warned Ahab to eat and drink because the glory of God was getting ready to be released and it was going to remove anything in its path. God is bringing a completion in your life so the new can come.
This reminds me of a recent vision I had in March, during a church service. During the worship I suddenly saw the realm of the spirit open, and this massive train came down across the stage. Across the train was written, The Glory Train.I was reminded of the word Bob Jones had about the glory train but, as I pressed into the revelation of this, the Lord began to show me a new move of His glory being released up the earth. I asked the Lord why He was showing me the glory in the form of a train. He said like the train, My glory is weighty and carries a force and momentum that cannot be easily stop. It will remove anything that stands in its way. The whistle of the train is being released in this hour like a trumpet and clarion call, calling for all those who are willing to gather and encounter this new move of Glory. The glory will bring and gather what’s needed. This glory train is also apart what will help to gather this harvest. The Glory Train is coming to a city near you. All aboard!!
The train is also a prophetic picture of divine acceleration just as the spirit of Might came upon Elijah in 1 Kings 18. There is a divine acceleration being released. As the spirit of Might hit Elijah, the rain was released. It wasn’t a small rain; it was a deluge of rain coming forth representing everything that had been held up in the heaven’s for three years was now being released. The cloud of rain represents His glory being poured out upon the earth to bring refreshing and cleansing.
May A Time of Revealing
Coming into the month of May, I have felt and sensed the atmosphere bubbling with revelation to come forth and be released. We are coming into the Hebrew month Iyar which is represented by the Tribe of Issachar. It will be a time of understanding the secret and hidden things. The Lord impressed upon me Isaiah 45:3, it says, “And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness— secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the Lord, God of Israel, the one who calls you by name.” I encourage you to press into the secret place and wait upon the Lord, there’s revelation He wants to reveal and uncover to you. Dig deep in this season.
Watch The Summer
In my prayer time recently, I began to hear the Lord say things will intensify overseas in the summer. He highlighted the month of August to me to watch, something significant will take place concerning this. I also heard the Lord say to keep an eye on the middle east. War is brewing at surface. I saw missiles and explosions. We must pray for the nations because the enemy wants to prematurely bait the nation into war. Our prayers and intercession will make a difference.
