This past night was interesting. It's been a long time since it lightninged and thundered all night long! I was awakened many times throughout the night with either a flash of lightning or a big, long clap of thunder...or both. And then there is the rain. It rained all night long. Not a steady drizzle, but barrage after of barrage! I'm beginning to understand the meaning of the word "torrent"!
This morning as I've been in the Word, I'm getting a different perspective of it all. God has a way of showing you stuff...through stuff. He reminded me that His Spirit is like water. In one place Jesus said the Spirit is like a well of water, springing up to eternal life. In other words, a whole bunch of water from a well that never, ever runs dry. In another place He compared the Spirit to a river of living water flowing out of our innermost being. Did you catch that...a river. Rivers contain a lot of water...like all the rain that fell last night...and is still falling this morning. He used all the rain (that I'm still hearing falling) to remind me that He wants to pour out His Spirit in these last days like that on all flesh. Yes, He did that at Pentecost, but He wants to do it in the form of a great revival in these last days. Not just an outbreak of a sprinkle in one region...but a torrent on those who hunger for Him anywhere on the planet. Never before has the world been darker. And never before has the potential for a great, last days revival been greater.
To me (and I pray to you) this barrage of moisture from above in much of the country of late, is a sign that it's coming. But we must be hungry for Him. We must be hungry to serve Him and others. We must be driven by a desire to please Him in all! Take a moment, if you live in the South, Southeast, and Northeast. Listen to the outpouring of the rain. Let Him speak to you what He spoke to me: listen...and get ready! It's coming!
