"An Encounter at the Sea of Words: Our Words Matter!" Steven Springer, Madison, WI

An Encounter in the Sea of Words

In a recent encounter with the Lord, I was lifted up in the spirit over the waters of a great sea of words. I felt these words were every word that had been spoken on the earth since time had begun—words of blessing and life, idle words, and death and cursing. I could see some very ancient words spoken by the saints of old, and others more recent which had been spoken that very morning.

I watched with the Lord the power of words being released from the people on the earth. I also saw that there were voices from the enemy speaking lies into the ears of the people. Some people believed the lies and began to speak them out loud—and as they did, the sea waters became treacherous waves and currents, bringing destruction. Then there was a voice of love and peace that was being released all of the time. This was a constant rhythm of grace that when heard, agreed with and spoken, made the treacherous waters become waves of love and grace, brining a rhythm of peace and shalom. The words of blessing and life always prevailed.

I believe we are in a great season where “our words matter”. We will either release waves of blessings, so this generation can ride into its destiny, or release a storm surge of waves that destroy and hold back the blessing from coming forth.

There is Power in Your Words

Let’s shape our world with words of blessing and life! Your life will follow your words! There is power in your words. Choose your words wisely—let them be filled with life and love. Let us plant the things we want, not what we don’t want.

“From a wise heart flow careful words; wise words make the lips more persuasive. Pleasant words are like a honeycomb: they drip sweet food for life and bring health to the body.” (Proverbs 16:23-24 The Voice)

You can have what you say! Don’t doubt or be divided in your heart! Declare and believe!

“Listen to the truth I speak to you: If someone says to this mountain with great faith and having no doubt, ‘Mountain, be lifted up and thrown into the midst of the sea,’ and believes that what he says will happen, it will be done.” (Mark 11:23 TPT)

Jesus always spoke to the problem, not about the problem. He shared with us a profound reality: What you speak out of your mouth is what is abundant in your heart.

“Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.” (Proverbs 18:21 MSG)

“Words have power in matters of life and death, and those who love them will savor their fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21 The Voice)

Here are some 8:18 Scripture declarations to speak over your life, city, and nations this 5778/2018 year:

• Power for Success, Life and Prosperity:

“Unending wealth and glory come to those who discover where I dwell. The riches of righteousness and a long, satisfying life will be given to them.” (Proverbs 8:18 TPT)

“Remember the Eternal One your God. He’s the one who gives you the power to get wealth, so He can keep the covenant promises He made to your ancestors, as He is doing now.” (Deuteronomy 8:18 The Voice)

• I Will Be a Sign and a Wonder:

“Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts,who dwells in Mount Zion.” (Isaiah 8:18 NKJV)

• Remove Hindrances that Keep You from Occupying Your Promise Land:

“Eternal One (to Joshua): ‘Raise your javelin toward Ai (Ai means “heap of ruins”), for now I will give it into your hands.’ Joshua raised his javelin toward the city…” (Joshua 8:18 The Voice)

• Great Resource to Accomplish the Lord’s Vision for Your Life:

“Hiram sent him ships commanded by his own officers and manned by experienced crews of sailors. These ships sailed to Ophir with Solomon’s men and brought back to Solomon almost seventeen tons of gold.” (2 Chronicles 8:18 NLT)

• Angelic Help:

“While he was speaking, I fainted and lay there with my face to the ground. But Gabriel roused me with a touch and helped me to my feet.” (Daniel 8:18 NLT)

• Fresh Revelation of the Glory:

“For I consider [from the standpoint of faith] that the sufferings of the present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us!” (Romans 8:18 AMP)

Be you. Declare truth. Believe completely. Receive abundantly. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"When We Pray, God Responds and Heals the Land" Kathie Walters, Macon, GA

God is Responding to Florida

I travel all over but I am learning to listen more to where He wants me to go. You do know God responds to your cry and to your faith—that’s His promise to all of us, isn’t it? God said, “I will listen. When you call unto Me I will answer you, and do great and mighty things that you do not know” (see Jeremiah 33:3).

Sometimes when I hear people talking about Florida, it makes me think that Florida is a kind of playground. Full of sun and fun and lovely, long beaches. But there is more to it, and there have been a lot of intercession and faith declarations in Florida.

I happen to know there are some serious, devil-stomping, tongue-talking, bold warriors living there. Most of the time they don’t look like it—they don’t appear very religious. They actually look like normal people.

Fireworks of Signs, Wonders and Miracles

When I woke up one morning recently, I had a vision where I saw a burst of fireworks in Miami. I thought the fireworks were signs and wonders and miracles. Then I saw it begin to light up…all along the coast. I first saw Tampa light up, and then it was like lights started popping in different places, all over. I also saw the Lord’s compassion being released. Faith that works by love is the best.

Signs and wonders are to confirm the Gospel. So preach the Gospel and reach out to the unsaved. Be like the owls who see in the dark. You can prophesy in dark places and bring the light.

Pray and Believe – Over Your Land!

I believe there are many smaller groups praying and waiting on the Lord (waiting on the Lord doesn’t mean you aren’t doing anything—but you have your antenna up all the time, listening to Him).

There is a good lesson to learn from the Hebrides Revival (Scotland) 1948-1952. On the Isle of Lewis in Hebrides, Scotland, a pastor along with other seven men, decided the islands were spiritually dead, so they started to pray and seek the Lord. They told God that they needed Him to come and heal the land. They prayed for several months and sorted out some of their personal issues—then God gave them a word.

In other words, God responded to their call. He gave them this Scripture: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV).

I don’t know if you have any Scottish blood in your family heritage, but the Scottish people have always had a revelation that God is a covenant-keeping God. If He says something He will most surely do it. So, when God gave them (the pastor and the seven other men) the word, “I will heal the land,” they had already taken care of the first part of the Scripture. Now they expected God to do His part. After God gave them their answer, they started to declare it. They told people, “God is coming. God is going to bring revival. He is going to heal the land.”

You see, they weren’t waiting to see in order to believe—they believed when He said it. That is what faith is. Remember what Jesus said about faith in Mark 11:24, “…Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe…” It doesn’t say, “When you see, believe.” Faith is believing because He said it, and getting rid of doubt. Sometimes you have to do some warfare against the spirit of doubt or fear.

True to His promise, God’s presence did show up on the Isle of Lewis—whole towns and villages were saved. The presence of God chased people in the bars and dance halls. People would run to the Church or to the police station. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Become a Host of His Presence with Power to Heal the Sick!" Munday Martin, Nashville, TN

At this juncture of my ministry, perhaps one of the most fiery embers blazing in my heart today is to edify each member of the corporate Body to awaken to see who they are in Christ.

As I travel across the globe, I meet myriads of precious sheep who are living beneath their privileges, forfeiting their divine, God-given gifts and rights. I see them leaving their Kingdom responsibility into the hands of their spiritual leaders. However, there is an undeniable reality that they are called to dignity and greatness for such a time as this. A massive part of that greatness lies in the greater works! What do I mean by that?

These stories I’m telling you are not designed for you to become a fan, but they’re designed to inspire you to become participants for Jesus’ glory and fame.

Jesus said in John 14:12-13, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in Me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”

That’s an exciting Scripture, because it opens our eyes to see that through the Holy Spirit we can do the same healings, the same miracles, the same signs and wonders that Jesus did in His earthly ministry! What’s more, we can do even greater! There is not one competitive bone in Jesus. He actually wants us to go further than He did in His earthly ministry because He knows that miracles are for the great harvest of souls.

Believe in Him Whom He Has Sent

When Jesus was asked how do we do the works of the Father He replied the most simple revelation in John 6:29, “Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you should believe in Him whom He has sent.”

If we are a Spirit-filled Believer that has been washed by the Blood of Jesus, all we have to do is believe in the Son of God.

Mark 16:17-18 says, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; in My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

It’s not our job to produce the results of healing the sick, it’s only our job to believe in Jesus. The more we go and pray for the sick, those in need of miracles, and those tormented by evil spirits, the more God can trust us with increased healing power that will usher in the great last days harvest of souls as we steward His gifts for His glory and His fame alone!

God is moving upon our imaginations: The Bible says, “Now to the one who can do infinitely more than all we can ask or imagine according to the power that is working among us…” (Ephesians 3:20 ISV).

Becoming a Host of His Presence

When you imagine with God, it can catapult you into a place where you no longer pursue His presence but you become a host of His presence. You find a realm where nothing is impossible. That is why in revival meetings and churches, my wife Jennifer and I see God often do creative miracles in the glory without even touching them. (Photo via Unsplash)

People have received new eyes, new eardrums and new teeth without anyone touching them in the atmosphere of praise, worship and decree. We have seen God dissolve metal out of people’s bodies, some that had been there for over 25 years. We have witnessed God grow limbs out, scars vanish, tumors disappear, doctor-verified miracles of new body parts with before and after x-rays as proof, and so much more. When these things happen in our midst, we see many come to receive Christ as Savior, including people from other religions and cults. Since 2000, God has sent my wife and me to 30 nations and we lived in Israel for the space of a year, seeing these amazing exploits done to bring glory to Jesus followed by salvations! Healing is my assignment! You can operate in this harvest glory too with your assignment for salvations!

It has been amazing lately how many people we are seeing healed even through threads on social networking, live streaming, and even cell phone calls when conducting meetings. I believe it will happen to you if you need healing even on this word you are reading!

Recently on a livestream I was doing, we saw a miracle. I called out a woman’s name, condition of a car accident she had been in (this accident was in 1980s and caused whiplash in her neck), and exactly where it was hurting – all through a word of knowledge. I released the power of God over her through the live broadcast. She was on the live stream and said she felt fire touch her and was completely healed with no more pain from a 30-year-old ailment!

A Sweeping of Mighty Miracles

God can move though us with extraordinary miracles even when the ones we are praying for are not present. I was once in a meeting in Brazil, and I simply laid my hand on a picture a lady brought me of a man who had been in a coma for 8 months. He got up the minute I prayed over his picture and he called her cell totally healed by Jesus! Imagine that! These stories I’m telling you are not designed for you to become a fan, but they’re designed to inspire you to become participants for Jesus’ glory and fame.

If we are a Spirit-filled Believer that has been washed by the Blood of Jesus, all we have to do is believe in the Son of God.

At this time, the Holy Spirit is bringing many people out of passive Christianity who have not even been aware of it. We will never arrive to a full Kingdom release of the supernatural Kingdom culture unless each Believer is subjected to some teaching, discipline and challenge, to awaken the Body from sleeping slumber, and go do the greater works.

The Bible has a lot to say about healing, and here are some Scriptures that I believe will increase your faith to go and heal the sick. I have included some Scriptures below that speak about the healing ministry of Jesus.

I. The Basis of Healing is Jesus’ Work on the Cross

A. It is God’s nature to heal as revealed through Jesus

“Jesus went about…healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people… They brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases…and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them” (Mt. 4:23-24).

“Jesus went about all the cities…healing every sickness and every disease…”(Mt. 9:35).

“And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all” (Mt. 12:15). “The multitude sought…Him for power went out from Him and healed them all” (Lk. 6:19).

(See also Matthew 4:23-24; 8:16-17; 9:35; 10:8; 11:5-6; 12:15-17; 14:14, 34-36; 15:30-31; 19:1-2; 21:14; Mark 1:32-34, 39, 45; 3:10; 6:5-6; 6:53-57; Luke 4:40; 5:15; 6:17-19; 7:21-23; 9:1-2, 6; 10:1, 9, 19; John 2:23; 9:6-7; 11:43-45; 14:12.)

B. Jesus purchased our healing on the Cross. One reason He came was to destroy satan’s works:

“They brought to Him many…He healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah…”He took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses” (Mt. 8:16-17). “Jesus…went about doing good…healing all who were oppressed by the devil…”(Acts 10:38). “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 Jn. 3:8). (Photo via Unsplash)

II. The Power to Heal is Promised in the New Testament

A. Every Believer today can operate now in the healing anointing, in the name of Jesus:

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give” (Mt. 10:7-8).

“The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’ He said to them, ‘… I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you'” (Lk. 10:9-19).

“These signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons… they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover…” (Mk. 16:17-18).

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (Jn. 14:12).

“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him…The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up” (Jas. 5:14-15).

B. Believers healed the sick in the early Church (see Acts 2:43; 4:33; 5:12-16; 8:18; 9:38; 19:11-12).

“Through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people… so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed” (Acts 5:12-16).

“Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them… For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed. And there was great joy in that city” (Acts 8:5-8).

“Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them… So the Word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed” (Acts 19:11-20).

May God bless you, and I release upon you the anointing of the Holy Spirit to go and do the greater works in Jesus name! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Father God Says: It’s Time For A PRAYER-WAR!" Victoria Boyson, Montgomery, TX

The Lord wants to blow the doors off of what we think we know about prayer!

I recently heard a story of a Christian man who’d died and, as he ascended to Heaven, he was surrounded by a violent propulsion of lights. He knew at once these lights were the prayers of those on earth who had interceded. Their prayers were shot up to Heaven in powerful anticipation of their importance to the heavenly Father. It seemed to him that they were “fireworks of war” in these prayers of the saints. That is the power of our prayers!

The Season of the Cross

Our Father is constantly, even ardently, waiting to hear our prayers and react to our calls. Indeed, our simple requests are missiles in the war of the heavenlies and we are His secret weapon. We are not sending up wishes or hopes, we’re sending up petitions to our loving Father, who’s anxiously waiting to hear our requests as if hearing the council of the generals of war. Your prayer instantly activates movements and strategies in the heavenlies which directly affects the realms of earth.

In our world, we fight under an oppressive cloud of unbelief. Even many Christians are cynical of miracles and hesitate to credit prayer for the answer. This is what the enemy wants – it is his primary weapon against the prayers of the saints. If you’ve experienced disappointment in prayer in the past, understand that is also apart of the battle against intercession. We’ve entered a new season: the season of the CROSS. It’s time to try again…and even when it looks impossible, believe God for the impossible to become possible.

Our prayer war cannot be for anything less than the awakening from the Lord that was promised: For the Church to become the vessel of the Lord and carry mercy and love to the lost.

Father God says: “YOUR PRAYERS ARE EXTREMELY POWERFUL! You are the light of the world and My secret weapon. You can move mountains by warring in the heavenlies for the victory of angels as they fight for you!”

Recently, the Lord downloaded to me what He called “three prayer-wars” that were examples of the wars we are to be waging in the heavenlies to affect the world we live in.

Prayer War in Acts

Acts 12 is an example of what the Father refers to as a “prayer-war.” King Herod Agrippa captured and killed the Apostle James. It so pleased the Jews, he captured the Apostle Peter as well and held him in prison, locked in chains between two guards with soldiers stationed at the door.

A band of Christians heard Peter was in prison and came together to pray in earnest for his deliverance. They knew what Herod had planned. As they prayed, the Lord released an angel into his prison cell to awaken a sleeping Peter, release him from his shackles, and lead him to freedom without the guards even realizing what transpired. He led him to the very home where the Lord’s followers were in prayer on his behalf.

Do you see the power of a small group of prayer warriors? They waged war and had tremendous victory!

Seven Days That Changed The World – The Prayer-Wars of WW2

In April of 1940, the allied forces of France, Britain, and others were unprepared for the battles they fought in the beginning of the war and were outmaneuvered by the Axis powers. Forced to retreat, the German army pushed these young boys back until their backs were against the English Channel. With no foreseeable place for them to go, Churchill prepared to announce that a third of a million soldiers had been captured by the German forces.

On May 26th England’s King George the Sixth called for the first day of national prayer and Britain devoted itself to prayer in an unprecedented way. Photos show long lines waiting to get into packed houses of worship to prayer all over the country.

As a result, an urgent call went out for boats of all shapes and sizes to cross the English channel to rescue the besieged army. Over 800 vessels were the answer to the call. And, astonishingly, Hitler, for no conceivable reason, ordered the German army to halt, and for three days the Germans stood idle. Had they continued their pursuit against the Allies, it would have most assuredly been a tremendous victory for them. Furthermore, a violent storm rose over the region, grounding the German fighter planes that had been killing thousands on the beaches. And just like that a [1] “great calm descended on the Channel, the like of which hadn’t been seen for a generation” allowing the famous miracle evacuation to take place. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)

The Allies thought they would be fortunate to rescue 25,000 British soldiers, but by the time the Nazis were ordered to renew their attack, 338,000 soldiers were rescued off the beaches of Dunkirk. Churchill called it a miracle, and truly it was. But we also know it was the victorious result of a war in the heavenlies fought by the saints on their knees calling out to the heavenly Father.

The second day of prayer was called on August 11, 1940 as German Field Marshal Goering commenced the first stage of his Battle of Britain with German fighter planes being released to attack the British Isle. Yet, only a small group of British fighter pilots shot down around 180 well-trained Nazi Bombers at a rate that could not be explained by Radar Air Command, prompting Churchill’s famous quote, “Never have so many owed so much to so few.”

On September 8, 1940, the third day of prayer from the nation led to angels-sightings in the sky over Britain. Even though the Germans sent 5 fighter planes with every single bomber during the next weeks of raids, they still lost 185 planes to the British who incurred relatively small losses. German General Goering prepared invasion barges, but a great storm rose up and blew them away. The Nazi invasion of Britain was postponed, giving the allies more time to arm themselves.

On March 23, 1941, no one knew Hitler had planned to attempt another invasion of Britain, yet faithful King George called again for a 4th national day of prayer. Soon after, a great earthquake created waves with terrifying gales which blew the Germans’ ships 80 miles off course. Yugoslavia, which had surrendered to Hitler, changed its mind that same week and began organizing a resistance against him. Ethiopia was liberated from the Axis leader Mussolini. The Italian Navy lost many cruisers and destroyers as they fought the British Navy in the Mediterranean who in turn suffered no damage and lost no men. As a result of the submarine earthquake, Hitler suddenly changed his mind entirely and gave up his plans to invade Britain and decided to attack Russia instead, against the council of all of his advisers!

On the anniversary of the beginning of the war, the King called for the 5th day of prayer on September 3, 1942. The next day at Palermo, the entire Italian fleet was sunk in the Mediterranean. And the next month the 8th army saved Egypt (and subsequently the land of Israel) from being invaded by Hitler.

The 6th day was called on September 3, 1943 for the fourth anniversary of the beginning of the war. That same night, Italy surrendered to the allies. In the spring of 1944, as the time for the D-day invasion approached, King George called for the 7th time for the nation to pray. And General Dwight Eisenhower said, “If there was nothing else in my life to prove the existence of an Almighty and merciful God, the events of the next twenty-four hours did it.”

Our Prayer War

In the fall of 2012, the Lord showed me the intentions of a group of leaders who would attempt to control America and use it to terrorize the world. They knew that, without control of America, they would never succeed in their agenda.

Your prayer instantly activates movements and strategies in the heavenlies which directly effects the realms of earth.

I was heart sick as the Lord showed me their plans. Yet, He promised that if we would fight for our world, He would save it. This war is not a war about politics. We are not at war with each other. We are at war with the same principalities that have attempted to conquer us from the very beginning.

I cried out to Him, “Lord, what can we do?”

He said, “If My Church will not fight them, who will?”

Suddenly, I realized how the enemy had tried desperately to keep us fighting one another, so we wouldn’t come after him, and how he’d tried to keep our prayer focused on the symptoms of sin rather than the cure to sin – Jesus Christ. All in an attempt to keep us from fulfilling 2 Chronicles 7:14, “Then if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and RESTORE THEIR LAND.”

Since that time, I’ve seen many, many prayer movements rise up all over the world for America and truly, we need it! One prayer call was AzusaNow 2016, which brought 120,000 prayer warriors together to pray for the promise of Azusa, as prophesied separately by William J. Seymour and Maria Woodworth-Etter in 1913, that the Holy Spirit would be poured out again 100 years after the Azusa Street Revival, and it would an even more powerful outpouring than before.

Indeed, if we think for one minute that our victory in prayer was for the outcome of an election, we are misdirected. Our prayer war cannot be for anything less than the awakening from the Lord that was promised: For the Church to become the vessel of the Lord and carry mercy and love to the lost.

Our war has not been won, for truly, it has just begun. We need Jesus! He is our ONLY HOPE! We’re not fighting a political war, but a spiritual war for the souls of mankind and for the hope of the world. We must continue to fight with 2 Chronicles 7:14 and contend for the promise of the Holy Spirit as they did at Pentecost!

The Father says to His children, “Let this be said of your generation HERE and NOW: ‘Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and He brought them to their desired haven.'” (Psalm 107:28-30)

“Your response to the chaos around you should be: ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:6-7).” (Photo via Unsplash)

“For surely, if you ask anything in My Son’s name, I cannot turn away from you. Seek Me, turn away from sin and carnality and EMBRACE ME! Lock yourself away with Me and surrender your heart to Me and I will give you peace even in the midst of chaos. I will be glorified as you pray in My Son’s name and trust Me to hear you.

“You are entering a NEW SEASON. Truly, the greatest season mankind will ever experience. I want to reveal My wonders to you, I want to show Myself glorious through you! Give Me your trust, open your heart and surrender to Me. Together, we will transform the world!”

Pray this with me: Father God, I want all that You have for me. Help me to be everything You need me to be. I surrender my heart and mind to You and ask You to wash me in Your FAITH. Give me the strength of Your JOY and the liberty of HOPE! Forgive my unbelief and saturate me in You so I can trust You! In Jesus’ name, amen. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"God’s Rain Clouds Over the Church – A Sign of Miracles and Healing Coming Forth" Todd Bentley, Charlotte, NC

Rain Clouds and Outpouring Over Churches

I recently returned from some awesome healing revival meetings in Whitehorse, Yukon, and thereafter, as I was ministering in the Abbotsford Revival Center, the Holy Spirit brought me back to a prophetic word that I had given in the Whitehorse meetings. God began to speak to me about the coming healing revival in North America. I was caught up in the spirit and I saw many rain clouds, individually set up over many churches and ministries across the States and Canada, and they were pouring down rain.

The rain clouds looked like they do in the cartoons on TV, where rain would be pouring down upon one person or one place. Then I saw many ministers and churches, who were already flowing in this miracle-healing anointing, begin to go into different cities and towns. As they were leaving these places of ministry, the cloud would remain upon that church and continue to pour down healing rain.

Many places are going to receive such an outpouring of rain, that pools of water are going to form like in John 5, in the pool of Bethesda. Within my spirit, I didn’t just see one pool, but many pools across Canada.

The word Bethesda literally means “the house of outpouring and grace”. The Holy Spirit spoke to me that these rains were for the churches and ministries that would fervently cry out for the rain, like Elijah did upon the mountain in 1 Kings 18:41-46. Elijah, in verse 41, heard the sound of the abundance of rain, and he knew in his spirit that the famine for Israel was over and it was time for the rain to fall (see 1 Kings 18:1).

The Persistence of Elijah

In chapter 17:1, it says that the rains would come at the word of Elijah. Though Elijah knew it was time for the rain to fall, in fervent prayer upon the mountain, he still had to birth and call it forth (see 1 Kings 18:41-46).

Though Elijah saw nothing, he persisted in fervent prayer, calling the rain. If you are to be “in the rain” and in the storm front moving across Canada in healings and miracles, you need to preach healing. Though you see nothing, preach healing and preach seven times as when Elijah persisted and he saw nothing.

I Hear the Sound of Rain

I hear the sound of the rain and I know in my spirit IT IS TIME! Climb up on the mountain and call for the rain; call for the storm. When the rains first began to come, the cloud was but the size of a man’s fist, but it grew to the place where Elijah said to Ahab, “Get your chariot going, lest the rain stop you upon the way.”

God spoke to my heart that first there would be healings, but then the rain would become torrential rains and we’d move into miracles. Will your church be a pool of Bethesda for the sick and the lame? Well then, let it pour! And the Lord says, “Truly, they all come from miles around.”

That morning in worship, after God had given me this word, two wonderful Africans walked into the service and God spoke to me that they were a sign that miracles and healings would come forth in North America, just like in places in Africa.

I called these two men to the front of the church, and for them to prophesy healing rains within the church in their language. That morning in the service we had many healings, including a couple of people healed who were standing at the altar, one of whom was one of the Africans who prophesied!

Praise the Lord! What’s been happening with the ministry of Fresh Fire is just the beginning of what God is going to do all over North America. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"One Glance from His Eyes…Changes Everything!" Steve Porter, Rochester, NY

“You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.” (Song of Solomon 4:9)

Why do I believe what I believe? It can be summed up in one word – relationship. It’s not about slavishly following an extensive list of authoritarian rules, lest I anger God. It’s all about knowing Him personally and wanting to please Him. The religious leaders in Jesus’ day firmly claimed to know God, but killed Jesus when He came to rescue humankind. Jesus unsympathetically rebuked them for their hard hearts and blatant, unrepentant hypocrisy. When we know Jesus in a personal way, we can’t help but love and desire Him. In turn, we will try to obey Him because we know He has our very best interests in mind.

My dad has also been a real inspiration to me. He has great integrity, and I’ve never in all my years heard him tell a lie. He’s always been honest with me even when it hurt. I’ve admired his deep desire to really know Jesus as a friend, not merely as a legendary historical figure. It stems from a time when he was fifteen years old. Let me explain.

Will you gaze upon Him only, leaving behind all others and the things that so tantalize you now?

Dad lived on the ocean in Maine. His family came from a long line of Canadian commercial fishermen. My grandmother was a deeply dedicated Christian lady who ministered with my grandfather. She was a pastor, a Bible school professor, and an inner-city relief worker, reaching out to the destitute and needy – the “down and out”. It was said of my grandmother that she never said an unkind word about anyone. I loved her so much.

One night, at age fifteen, my dad went to bed, pondering what he should do with his life. He was wide awake, unable to sleep when Jesus walked into the room and stood at the foot of his bed. He opened His hands to my dad so that the nail punctures were clearly visible. My dad said he had never seen such great love before. The eyes of Jesus moved him to tears.

Dad was transformed forever at that moment. He cried all night after that because Jesus loved him so much. The eyes of Jesus told the true story; no one would be able to tell him otherwise. He’d had a personal visitation from a personal Savior. Just as the early disciples dropped what they were doing to follow Jesus by reason of “one gaze from His eyes,” after one look, my dad knew what he was called to do. Most people don’t have such awe-inspiring encounters in their lives. My dad was incredibly blessed by that life-changing visitation and it became very apparent in his ministry.

He’s Looking at You Too

Turn your head, precious one; He’s looking your way with eyes full of love. One look will transform your life. His head is turned toward you, His beautiful child, right now! When you look at Him, you steal His heart. Can you see Him? With His arms open wide, He desires to embrace you and tenderly love you in His presence. Take the hand of the Master, for He is waiting for you in the secret place.

In fact, did you know that both His eyes and thoughts have been on you since the day you were conceived? You may be surprised to learn that Scripture says you’re always on His mind. “How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand. And when I wake up, You are still with me” (Psalms 139:17-18)!

He Calls You, Beloved, into a Far Deeper Relationship with Him

“Behold, you are fair, My love! behold, you are fair! You have dove’s eyes.”(Song of Solomon 1:15)

He calls you, beloved, into a far deeper relationship with Him to focus your gaze on Him alone. Even as a dove fixes its gaze upon its mate, unmoved by distractions, even so He wants you, His love bird, to focus on Him alone. (Photo via Steve Porter)

Scripture commands us not to be like a horse or a mule easily distracted by side vision. It can only be kept on track by placing “blinders” beside each eye and a bit in its teeth.

Unlike the horse or mule, stubborn and easily distracted, your Savior wants you to be like that “love bird” – with singular purpose, focusing dove eyes on Him so He can lead you according to His will.

Love Him enough to be obedient, allowing your spirit to become ever more sensitive to His still, small voice. He will lead you to safety, shelter and protection – only trust Him and allow Him to guide your steps. Stay close enough to Him to sense His will for you. With one tender glance He will send you in the right direction, where you will find favor and spiritual substance.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” (Psalm 32:8)

As your “dove eyes” focus on your heavenly Lord, He will bring a greater awareness of His presence. He will begin to minister to you in a very personal way and lift you far above the pull of this evil world, giving you a new sensitivity to His Spirit.

How much do you love Him? Can He trust you to develop a singular focus on Him alone, so that you don’t miss His best advice? Will you gaze upon Him only, leaving behind all others and the things that so tantalize you now? Once you fall in love with His face, you’ll no longer be satisfied to merely hear about Him; rather, you’ll yearn for His presence, eager to be in His company, where He will satisfy the deep longings inside you.

Turn your head, precious one; He’s looking your way with eyes full of love.

With that “singular gaze” will also come a change in your desires. He will quench your cravings for the things of this world and inspire you to come away with Him.

Rise Up

“Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.” (Song of Solomon 2:10)

He yearns for you to have only one desire: to abide in His holy presence. He longs for you to stay in His presence and never leave, no matter what else occupies your time.

Cry out even as David: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? …one thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Psalm 27:1-4).

As you let Him stir your passion for Him, getting back to your first love, He will supply every need, filling you to overflowing and far surpassing your expectations, finally giving you that elusive, deeper abundant life.

“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

His Banner over You is Love

Today, He searches earnestly for those who are willing to be doves with a singleness of vision. When He finds them, it brings Him incredible joy, so that He can’t help but declare: “Behold, you are fair, you have dove’s eyes” (Song of Solomon 1:15). (Photo via Pexels)

Once He knows you love Him most, more than great wealth, more than any other, once He has become a sought-after pearl of great price to you, He will be your fairest of ten thousand. He is altogether lovely, for He is your King of kings and Lord of lords, your All in all. Then, just as He did with my dad, let Him bring you to the banqueting house where His banner over you is love!

Let’s Pray: Take me to Your banqueting house! Ravish me with Your love and tender affection. I give You all my heart; call me away into the deep, for You are altogether lovely! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"Step Out in Obedience – It’s Time to Move Forward Into All I Have For You!" Katie Barker, Tweed Coast, Australia

The Path of Promise

As I asked the Lord what was on His heart, I heard Him say, “Tell My people: ‘I will meet you at your step of obedience. Arise and take the path of promise.'”

I was then shown a vision where the Lion of the tribe of Judah was meeting with people individually, walking up to them on a path. I noticed the people were bent over on their knees. I saw the Lion approach each person with such compassion, love, strength and presence. There was so much strength and authority in His walk and so much gentleness and compassion in His eyes.

As the Lion of the tribe of Judah approached each person, they would look up into His eyes, and in His eyes they were able to see themselves the way He saw them—they were able to see their true identity in Christ.

He then said, “Arise” and He gestured for them to go in the direction of steps that were up ahead on the path. As each person stood up in obedience to the Lord’s call and as they focused their eyes on Him, they arose as a warrior wearing golden armor. I saw scales fall from people; these were scales of unbelief, discouragement, doubt and confusion. See, the enemy had sent an onslaught of discouragement and confusion against the people of God to stop them from arising and stepping into the next level of their destiny and to prevent them from seeing the promise ahead.

Their destiny and spiritual inheritance awaited them, but they needed to take upward steps ahead on the path. The Lord was showing them it was time for them to take territory and step into the next stage of their destiny. As they arose and took steps on the path, they were advancing with golden swords held high. I knew they were decreeing the Word of God as they advanced on the path. The decrees were cutting through the schemes of the enemy. The Lord was showing them they are warriors in Him, and that the path of promise awaited them. There was a spiritual inheritance waiting for them to step into, but they needed to take steps of obedience.

As the people of God moved up the steps, the Lion of the tribe of Judah was right there with them. He was there waiting for them, ready to meet the people at each step of obedience. And with each step up they were given greater spiritual sight of the destiny before them.

Arise and Take Your Place

I then heard the Lord say, “It is time to move forward into all I have for you. Arise and take your place. I will meet you as you step out in obedience. It is time to take your territory and step into the promise. I have paid the price for you, now walk in all I have prepared. Arise and walk in all you were called to be.”

The vision then changed—instead of seeing individual people arising, I saw a picture of multitudes arising. The Lion of the tribe of Judah was leading a multitude of warriors and He was roaring and leading the charge. Territory was being taken for the Kingdom of God as the people advanced. As they advanced in their golden armor with golden swords raised, led by the Lord, a path of light was piercing the darkness and the sky above them was changing to a magnificent golden color. The glory of God was filling the sky. As the warriors advanced, the land left behind them began changing from a dry, barren scene to lush, fertile land. Healing of the land was occurring as territory was taken for the Kingdom.

Step Out in God’s Leading

We are in a time where the Lord is calling us to arise, step into the promise and take our territory. It is a shifting time where individuals are stepping into the manifestation of the promise and the next stage in their divine destiny. It is also a time where as warriors arise, together they are advancing the Kingdom of God across the earth and areas are being impacted by the glory of God. Healing and transformation is seen in the wake of where territory is taken and strongholds of the enemy are brought down.

This is a time where the Lord is calling you to have faith and step out on His leading. He will meet you at your step of obedience and show you the way forward. As a child of God you inherit everything that Jesus has, as you are an heir of God and co-heir with Jesus. God wants you to know what is available to you from Him. The word of God unveils your spiritual inheritance. The Lord is calling you to claim and walk in your inheritance.

Galatians 4:7 (TPT), “Now we’re no longer living like slaves under the law, but we enjoy being God’s very own sons and daughters! And because we’re His, we can access everything our Father has – for we are heirs of God through Jesus, the Messiah!”

James 1:22 (TPT), “Don’t just listen to the Word of Truth and not respond to it, for that is the essence of self-deception. So always let His Word become like poetry written and fulfilled by your life!”

Romans 8:14 (TPT), “The mature children of God are only those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit.”
Take Your Territory

Hebrews chapter 11 outlines those of great faith in the Bible. This chapter outlines actions they took in faith and obedience to the calling of the Lord. Abraham is one of the people listed in this chapter. Hebrews 11:8 (NASB) says, “By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.”

The people of Israel inherited the promise of the land of Canaan when God made a covenant with Abraham. However, when the time for fulfillment of their inheritance came, they needed to go to Canaan and take possession of that promise. We must do the same with the promises God gives us. When God told the Israelites to go in and possess their inheritance, the Jordan River was a barrier between them and the land of promise. The Lord told Joshua to instruct the priests who were carrying the Ark of the Covenant to go into the Jordan River first. The Lord said that as soon as the soles of their feet touched the water the Jordan River would stand up in a heap so all the people could pass over on dry ground (see Joshua 3:13).

Faith and obedience brings God on the scene! God met them at their step of obedience. The Jordan parted as the priests stepped into the water so the rest of the Israelites could cross over on dry ground.

Allow the Lord to show you who you really are in Him. Obediently move out in the power of the Holy Spirit, onto the path of promise and the next step in your divine destiny. Claim the inheritance and territory that is waiting for you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
