Recently I woke up with Deuteronomy 28 burning in my belly. As I began to reread this passage, I heard the Lord say:
“These last few years were the years of the threshing floor. The days ahead shall be the days of divine inheritance for those who love Me, fear Me, and have stood righteous before My presence. Those who entered into divine inhabitation by way of thanksgiving (Psalms 100:4) will see the fruits of what they have believed for because they continued to trust Me and believe on My promises.
When the winds and waves came, they were not moved because they built their house on a foundation that could not be shaken. Heaven has marked them in this hour to be recipients of My grace, My favor, and My glory. They shall rise from the ashes of adversity bold as lions declaring forth the Word of the Lord.
As it was with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, they are coming out untouched, unscorched, and their clothes will not smell like smoke. There is a new authority on their speech. Even when they rise to speak, it will cut differently because it has been sharpened on the grinding stone of my word and anointed in the seat of My presence.
The threshing floor revealed one thing: those whose hearts really belonged to Me. Those who heaven has marked will ascend in this hour to heightened degrees of revelation, impartation, and glory. They will move in uncommon miracles and have great favor in the days ahead. I will use them to stir up the winds of revival and bring healing to this nation and the nations of the earth.”
The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in this season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. -Deuteronomy 28:1
