We are living in a season of increase but we have to truly believe that we can receive it. As a people, we’ve been through an extensive season of punishment for our transgressions and rebelliousness and it is difficult to imagine our season of restoration. The time is now. The time is now for increase so that we can take care of the needy and the poor and the prisoners. The time is now for increase to fund our initiatives to conquer more territory for the kingdom. In the midst of devastation – death of navy men, unjust court decisions, bombings in Manchester, and corruption in government, the body of Yeshua will receive increase. We have lived beneath kingdom standards long enough. The wealth of the wicked has been stored up for us. The time is now for increase, not for us to accumulate wealth for selfish gain and become as the wicked are but for us to use our wealth for kingdom advancement.
It is getting ready to pour! You’ve been obedient. You’ve been sowing and sowing and sowing in the lives of God’s people. You’ve sown in kindness, time, thoughts, words and deeds.
Someone has been sowing money from your household and you were concerned about whether or not you would be able to continue giving like this and still be able to eat or take care of yourself and your own family. You’ve sown into the life of the prophet and so many of God’s people. You’ve given to others before you considered the cost and the needs of your own family.
The Holy Spirit assured you that God would supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. When you would give though, and you looked at your own account, you couldn’t see how you would make it. But you were still obedient. You kept giving but the flour and the olive oil never ran out. The oil just keeps flowing. Yes God! You kept looking at the containers trying to figure out “how” but you know in your spirit “how.”
1 Kings 17:13-16 NLT “But Elijah said to her, ‘Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: “There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when the LORD sends rain and the crops grow again!” So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days. There was always enough flour and olive oil left in the containers, just as the LORD had promised through Elijah.'”
When I looked at 1 Kings chapter 17, verses 13-16, the Holy Spirit said to me, “It’s getting ready to pour!” Your needs have been met though it has been tight. You’ve had enough to make it, but you had to shuffle your money around. “Because of your obedience, sacrifice, and faith, God is about to send the rain. The rain is going to produce such a fruitful and productive harvest in your life that you won’t have room enough to receive it. You will be able to bless others even more.” My God! Thank You Jesus. Are you ready for the rain? Dr.J.
