Do you hear the rain?
By Nate Johnston
Tonight in worship I had a vision I want to share and the revelation the came with it. We are truly in a time of genuine awakening, and when awakening comes every dead, entombed thing comes back to life. People and churches that have lost hope and faith begin to feel to feel the embers of their hearts ignite again.
Awakening releases a shaking that unearths what has been hidden or forgotten, causing the body of Christ to access and pick up what they have lost. Awakening causes us to SEE and encounter God, removing the choking and blinding debris from our path. Let this word shake, bake, and wake you into this new era of His mighty outpouring!
In a vision I saw the winds of the Spirit blowing violently upon the earth causing a great shaking. Foundations were being pulled up and reset. The Lord revealed that in this season we have to get our foundations right. There is a grace to set and to dig deeper foundations. Wrong foundations will not last the test of time or be able to carry the new weight of Glory.
This violent wind continued to blow until
I saw it blowing upon the hearts of sons and daughters. This wind was not dispersing but gathering and mending the hearts of those who have been through extensive times of wilderness. Then I heard “I have not forgotten my promises” and I knew this awakening was a reminding Gods people what he had said He would do. As the wind blew it cleansed the atmosphere and a fresh faith and hope began to arise in the hearts of Gods people again.
THE CYRUS ANOINTING
I saw the winds of the Spirit blow upon the nation’s of the earth. As He did, gates and doors began breaking open to cities and nations around the world. Then I heard a voice yell “Do not enter, the gates are shut” BUT it was already too late because the living breath of Holy Spirit was bringing light into concentrated locations of such previous darkness. We are about to see regions that were once hard or untouchable ground become harvest hotspots for the kingdom!
I was also reminded of Isaiah 45:1-2 where God says to King Cyrus he would subdue nation’s and strip kings of their armour, and gates and doors will not be shut. I believe we are in a time of the dethroning of earthly kings and kingdoms and just as Cyrus names means “Throne”, God is placing anointed men and women in high places of influence and authority in the earth.
UNEARTHING HIDDEN WELLS
I then saw the breath of God continue to blow upon the earth that that was beginning to unearth the ancient cries, the prayers prayed, and many many ancient wells were being uncovered and revealed. It will be a suddenly. A sudden harvest. They will wonder where this came from because they didn’t see the years of seeds sown. The years of the faithful on their knees. I was overwhelmed by the intercession sown that was hidden in one moment then suddenly being unveiled and surfacing. Past moves of the Spirit were being unearthed and the earth itself was groaning and making intercession for what was manifesting.
I saw waters erupting over the earth like streams, and each of these streams were new movements that had just been birthed from within those who have been heavily pregnant in this past season, but the awakening breath was bringing life back to those who felt they aborted what God gave them. You are still going to give birth! I saw the birthing of new movements, new vehicles of mobilisation that were strategic in nature and would be counter cultural and very diverse. I saw all of these individual streams begin to merge together to become one huge river and I new I was looking at an outpouring birthed in unity that would command a blessing we have not yet seen. Every tribe, every tongue, and every nation.
I heard the Lord speak to me about the RESURGENCE of revival mantles but I saw that they were not just given to a few but imparted to a generation and activated by those who stepped into them. The revelation of inheritance and heavenly access is causing heaven to be raided like never before as hungry and laid down lovers begin to utilise the unlimited Kingdom at their disposal.
We will see a resurgence of expressions and anointings that haven’t surfaced in years. In particular I believe we will see the resurgence of what John Wimber carried for miracles and creative miracles but in a double portion.
In this season will come forth a new sound of worship, anthems that will be sung from the rooftops and be the soundtrack to the greatest outpouring we have seen. God is awakening the creatives who have been in hiding or who have suppressed the sound they carry.
In November 2017 I was awoken one night and the Lord said “It’s time for the songs of harvest to be written”. There are songs that will date back to this time that we will remember were songs that were the wave that carried us into the glory and ushered in greater harvest. Awaken psalmists and release your sound!
ALL FOR THE CALL
Just like the days of Elijah, the fires on the altar had to be lit first before the rains could come and such is the time that the Lord is setting hearts ablaze before we see the first drop of rain. In the distance is a cloud and we know the times and the season we are in, and the cry of hearts is “Jesus, have your way, whatever the cost!”.
I prophesy awakening over your life today and that you would encounter the awakening breath of the Holy Spirit upon your life today ruining you for anything less.
