Then Elijah said to Ahab, ""Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of abundance of rain." 1 Kings 18:41 (NKJV)
The drought is over! At our Friday night prayer meeting many things broke in the spiritual realm. We had been going through a period drought in the spirit and it took a crisis to break us out of it. It has been a long time coming. Not only has our church been feeling it, but many of the churches in this city, province and country have been feeling it. There is a growing spiritual hunger that is sweeping this nation of Canada. It’s about to change. I know it. It is time! God shall have dominion over this country once again.
I found this on the net yesterday concerning Canada
Around 1776 this prophecy was given by the Puritan Reformers, when the British Empire Loyalists turned north to settle in Canada in order to remain under British rule. When zealous Americans sought to persecute them because of this decision, the Spirit of the Lord spoke through their prophets saying, "Do not hinder these people. Let them move to Canada. Do not seek to incorporate the land of Canada into America. I am in the independence of America from Britain, and will mightily use this country. But Canad a has been reserved by me for the last days for a special work.."
Though this account cannot be substantiated by documentation, it is relayed by James Watt who was one of the leaders in Latter Rain Revival in North Battleford Saskatchewan, 1948 -1953. In the 1920’s Smith Wigglesworth and Dr. Charles S Price foretold of a significant revival in Northern Canada in the late 40’s. They described it as a great wave of blessing that would bring great hope to the world. But because man would introduce a mixture -God in grief would withdraw. The wave would secede, leaving a desert condition for a generation of 50 years. But at the end of the century, another wave would roll in, 10 times more the power and glory of the first. It would continue in blessing until the return of the King!
Twenty years ago I was sitting in church with my wife, I had a vision that never left me. I could never completely figure out it’s meaning. On Friday God told me to reveal it. I saw a desert that was extremely dry and as I surveyed this desert it began to rain a water more pure than I had ever seen. It began to flow and wherever that water flowed over the desert it blossomed with beautiful plants and flowers. After I shared, our pastor said he was also seeing it and in his vision he saw multitudes of people with their heads and hands lifted up drinking in that rain.
I had not told those at the prayer meeting that what I was sharing was received 20 years ago and after the prayer meeting was over a member of the congregation said that he had received a word from the Lord. The word was that someone had received a vision from the Lord years ago and that now was the time of it’s fulfilment. Right away I knew it was the vision God had given me.
On the Peace tower in front of our parliament buildings is written the first part of Psalm 72:8
"He shall have dominion also from sea to sea." This past Friday the clock on that Peace tower stopped at exactly 7:28 AM and pointed to that verse.
Coincidence. I don’t think so. Today I read again the rest of that Psalm and it blew me away.
1 Give the king Your judgments, O God,
And Your righteousness to the king’’s Son.
2 He will judge Your people with righteousness,
And Your poor with justice.
3 The mountains will bring peace to the people,
And the little hills, by righteousness.
4 He will bring justice to the poor of the people;
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor.
5 They shall fear You
As long as the sun and moon endure,
Throughout all generations.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing,
Like showers that water the earth.
7 In His days the righteous shall flourish,
And abundance of peace,
Until the moon is no more.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.
9 Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow before Him,
And His enemies will lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles
Will bring presents;
The kings of Sheba and Seba
Will offer gifts.
11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him;
All nations shall serve Him.
12 For He will deliver the needy when he cries,
The poor also, and him who has no helper.
13 He will spare the poor and needy,
And will save the souls of the needy.
14 He will redeem their life from oppression and violence;And precious shall be their blood in His sight.
15 And He shall live;
And the gold of Sheba will be given to Him;
Prayer also will be made for Him continually,
And daily He shall be praised.
16 There will be an abundance of grain in the earth,
On the top of the mountains;
Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon;
And those of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
17 His name shall endure forever;
His name shall continue as long as the sun.
And men shall be blessed in Him;
All nations shall call Him blessed.
18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel,
Who only does wondrous things!
19 And blessed be His glorious name forever!
And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen.
Now is the time! Now it is your time Canada! Oh church rise up! Rise up! Become all that you have been called to be! Let your light shine before the nations! Quebec and Montreal, no longer shall you be called barren and a desert. No longer shall you be called an orphan. You shall blossom and out of you the nations shall be blessed. Turn from the things that distract you. Focus your hearts upon the King of kings and Lord of lords! Shout and proclaim to all, THE LORD REIGNS! Let’s get soaked!
