~~We are first introduced to the prophet Elijah in I Kings 17. The name Elijah is the Hebrew Eliyahu that means "My God is Yahweh." My God is Jehovah. Elijah appears on the scene making a declaration: "As the Lord God of Israel liveth before whom I stand, there shall not be dew or rain these years, but according to my words." He did not say, "Thus saith the Lord." He just decreed that there was not going to be rain and there was no rain for 31/2 years until he made another declaration that there was going to be an abundance of rain. And it rained. It did not just rain, there was a great out pour! It is such an awesome thing for God to trust you enough to empower the words of your mouth. It is the same thing that happened to Samuel in I Samuel 3. He did not yet know the Lord, but the Lord revealed Himself to this young child. Even as a child, it was said that none of his words fell to the ground. In other words, his words and prayers were like arrows hitting the bull's eye! God can use the young and the old. In this new season, He will use those that are considered "babes" in the Lord. They just have to know Him, be ready and be available.
It is not going to be business as usual for us saints and it cannot be business as usual. God is ringing the alarm to wake up the sleeping Church and causing us to know that it is time to rise from the dust of lukewarmness, defeat and discouragement. He will give them courage to do more. He is saying it is time to shine for His glory. He is saying that He will empower and strengthen the ready and available by His Spirit. He is making a declaration and saying that those that do not bow to "Baal" shall become His voice in the Earth realm and they are the ones that will take over every heavenly power that has been set by the enemy to confound, distract and torment His Church. Just as He used Elijah who came in the picture from nowhere and young Samuel was not the “prophet” of the people at the time, the Lord said He will use people who are new in the faith; people who are known by Him to be counted as His true servants. They do not have to bear a title. They have to have His heart and be passionate about Him. The Lord is saying as long as you are counted in the number by Him, you shall decree a thing and it shall….. All you need to do is decree it! Are you counted in the number?
“I am waking up the sleeping Church to take her place. I am sounding the alarm for those who are not living right to get it right and join the army. I am causing the well of my revival to be stirred and to overflow. I am causing the remnants who have refused to bow to Baal to arise and take their place and be My voice. You shall decree a thing and it shall……. I will shoot my fire in your bones and I will revive you again. I will cause my fire to be upon your tongues. I will cause there to be a manifestation of the words that you speak because I have sent you forth to speak it. You are greater than the prophets of old. Your words are more powerful. Your messages will become more precise. Ancient walls will be broken down by your words. Territorial demons will be destroyed by your words. “Jezeebel” in the Church will lose her power. “Absalom” will lose his power and be exposed and cofounded. You will heal the sick and deliver the oppressed. You will bring salvation to the lost.”
“The fire of evangelism, the fire of healing and deliverance, the fire of new visions and dreams will be birthed. I will birth a fire of true worship. I will birth the fire of unity, unity among brethren and among denominations. I will make my ministers flames of fire. For I have ordained it. And you shall decree a thing and it shall be established.”
Brethren, it is a new season. The Lord is birthing a new thing; a new Church with new power; a Church with real power. We shall no longer be a reproach to the name of the Lord, but chosen ones that will declare the true gospel. You will be the messengers with the messages from the throne room. There is no power without prayer. There will be no power without holiness. There will be no true demonstration and manifestation without unity. This is the time and season of my manifestation.
God will separate the true servants from the rest. Isaiah 60:1-2 says, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” It will not matter what is happening around you, your testimony will be that God will arise upon you and His gory will be seen upon you.
Do you want to produce results? Now is the time. Do you want God to use you more? Do you want to be or continue to be part of the remnants God wants to use at this end time? Do you want to be the voice with a difference? God is waking up a real Church. It is not going to be “church as usual.” There are no more pretenses. The veil is removed. God is not looking for the “who’s who.” He is looking for the remnants who will say “No!!” to Baal. He is looking for the remnants that are not looking for fame or popularity. He is looking for the remnants that will fall on their faces and give it all to Him. He is looking for the ones who will look up to Him as their help and draw the power from on high. The remnants that will look for no other source but up at the SOURCE. He is looking for those who will look unto their God, Jehovah the Mighty One. Job 22:28 says, “Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be established……” Rebuild your altar and begin to decree and it shall be so for you in Jesus’ name. AMEN.
