Recently when I was seeking the Lord’s heart and praying for my nation, I heard the words repeated over and over “The rains are coming, the rains are coming” and I knew that this was a call to get ready for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Joel 2:23 began to resound all around me:
Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before.”
As the rains fell, as each drop hit the dry land and the states, the states began to blaze with fire.
I could hear a strong prophetic decree “ABLAZE AUSTRALIA”
Immediately I was taken to 1 Kings 18 where Elijah had been told rain was coming and he sent his servant up seven times to check for rain.
In verse 41 Elijah says to Ahab “Go up, and eat and drink, for there is a sound of the rushing of rain”
THERE IS A SOUND OF RUSHING RAIN IN THE SPIRIT THAT IS GOING TO BURST OUT AND FORTH OVER THE GREAT SOUTHLAND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
What the Lord highlighted to me was the FOCUS of Elijah.
Verse 42 “Ahab went up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Mount Carmel. And HE BOWED HIMSELF DOWN ON THE EARTH AND PUT HIS FACE BETWEEN HIS KNEES”
Elijah was in such a place of focused intercession. The picture struck me of Elijah with his head between his knees and I realized his knees would have covered his ears. I felt the Holy Spirit speaking “listen only to My voice and what I am speaking”. Elijah was living in a deep heavenly reality of the prophetic decree. He contended until he saw it manifest, he did not move. Scripture does not say he even looked up to see if the cloud had begun to rise, he kept his head down and sent his servant to check. What a place of focus and devotion to what God had spoken.
Friends, now is the time for a Ferocious Focus of Faith.
Do not be distracted – Ferociously focus on what the Lord has said, it is time to walk in faith, walking by faith and not by sight, walking by the decree and word of the Lord that comes out of His mouth, for we are on the brink of mighty rains and fire coming.
AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND HOLDING HANDS
I then saw two hands being held together and I knew that this was representative of Australia and New Zealand.
I noticed that both of these hands were on fire, they were burning with the fire of God, and then the Lord spoke:
“The greatest healing revival that’s ever been seen will come out of Australia and New Zealand”
I then began to see pillars of fire come out of heaven and it reminded me of the fire that fell in the showdown between Elijah and the prophets of Baal. There is a showdown taking place…then suddenly I heard a thundering that came forth in the spirit over Australia and New Zealand:
“I am coming BY fire, I am coming WITH fire. Do not be distracted, FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS, it is time for the FEROCIOUS focus of faith. Call it in! Call it in! Call it in!”
“I am coming with rain, I am coming with fire”
“I am coming as the God of Psalm 2:4”
“He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them.”
I am raising up Burning Ones, who are BURNING with first love fire for Me and the conviction of what I have spoken, they have their head between their knees with intense focus and declaration to see the greatest move of My Spirit birthed, and they are NOT moved by what they see in the natural but move by BOLD FAITH and trust in Me.”
People of God, DO NOT FEAR, get ready! Stay in faith.
He is coming as the King of Glory! Take your stand, He is coming through you! Psalm 24:7-9 (TPT)
“So wake up, you living gateways! Lift up your heads, you doorways of eternity. Welcome the King of Glory, for he is about to come through you. You ask, “Who is this King of Glory?” Yahweh, armed and ready for battle, Yahweh, invincible in every way! So wake up, you living gateways, and rejoice! Fling wide, you eternal doors! Here he comes; the King of Glory is ready to come in.” (TPT)
