ISAIAH 45:8 Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness (the pure, spiritual, heavenly-life possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God); let the earth open and let them, skies and earth, sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up (as plants do) together; I the Lord have created it. Amp.
Righteousness – c) the right, justice, virtue, prosperity
Salvation – c) deliverance, healer, save, victory, safety, rescue, make whole, preserved, liberty, prosperity, welfare and protection
Germinate – d) to start developing or growing; sprout or cause to sprout as from a seed.
Joel 2:21-23 Fear not, and be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things.
22. Be not afraid, you wild beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness have sprung up and are green, for the tree bears its fruit, the fig tree and the vine yield their full strength.
23. Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.
I believe the early rain began when Peter preached at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit was just beginning to flow and continues to flow today. But we are still awaiting the latter rain which will be the last great outpouring of His Spirit. There is no power anywhere that can stop what He has planned for the end.
I believe the power will be so strong as Isaiah 45:8 says righteousness and salvation will spring up everywhere. He has an army of prayer warriors whose prayers have been sown for decades and must be reaped and harvested. The last days will come with a final revival that will sweep many into the Kingdom of God.
This will be the fulfillment of Isaiah 35:4 “Say to those who are of a fearful heart, behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with recompense; He will come and save you. 5. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6. Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
The waters that pour into the desert are the Holy Spirit’s final outpouring, the heavenly showers from Isaiah and the latter rain prophesied by Joel. We can expect great things. Those whom we have prayed for who seemed to have no hope of deliverance will be delivered. Spiritual blindness will melt away and praise will live where it could not before.
The road will be holy and no beasts allowed. It will be a safe place where joy and gladness will be everlasting with no possibility of change. It will be the end of sorrow. The Lord is setting up His Kingdom. The Marriage Feast is being prepared. All will not be invited.
Revelation 19:9 … Blessed happy, to be envied — are those who are summoned (invited, called) to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
All are not the Bride. All are not summoned. All will not rule and reign with Jesus. They must have their name in the book of Life to enter the city. There will be some who are pillars and stay in the City of God always and some who come and go, but nothing unclean will ever come in forever and ever.
Rev. 3:12 He who overcomes (is victorious), I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God; he shall never be put out of it or go out of it… Amp.
We will be judged by whether we are overcomers or let Satan win the battles that we fought. These scriptures are saying there will be the greatest outpouring of power given to help us become the overcomer He wants us to be. The power is coming. There will be no excuses. He will come with great power. He knows what we need. It has all led up to these last days. We are really the most blessed of all the people. Thank You Jesus. Prepare us to receive all we need to be ready and summoned to the spot you called us to! Thank You Lord!
SUBJECT — OUTPOURING — DAVID WILKERSON
I do not believe we have yet seen the glory and fullness of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as prophesied by Joel. What we have seen are just a few sprinkles!
It will not not just be a renewal of love and praise, but a restoration of holiness to the Lord.
The purpose of the Spirit’s coming is to sanctify and prepare a people without spot or wrinkle for the Lord’s return.
