                                     LET IT RAIN!!!!

At the end of August, upon awakening, I heard the words:

           'persecution brings latter rain'

Three little words that are packed with a very heavy meaning!!

In light of what happened in Tennessee's Church of God on 9/24/17, I think that this message if very timely.  Please pray with me for this church that has been attacked and for the victims.

What was the LORD trying to say to me with the words, 'Persecution brings latter rain?'  In the Bible,  'latter rain'  refers to the spring rains in Israel that brings forth the harvest.  There is also a 'former' rain that brings the autumn harvest  Without these rains there would be no food from the land. 

The spiritual meaning of 'latter rain' is that there will be a great move of the HOLY SPIRIT to be poured out on HIS children in the Last Days.  This last great movement of the LORD on the earth will be like the 'former rain'  anointing that came at Pentecost in the Book of Acts.

"And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."   Acts 2:2-4

Now the 'latter rain'  will come in these last days to bring in a mighty harvest of souls.  It is an new anointing and pouring out of GOD's living water. 

So how does the  'persecution'  message  come into play?  This is the interpretation that I received:
 When we started seeing severe Christian persecution increasing all over the world, so will we see a GREAT revival break out, possibly the greatest moving of the SPIRIT since Pentecost.  I believe that we are on the cusp of this happening now.  

 When it is a 'life or death' situation, like persecution, the blinders will come off the sleeping church and our hearing will become sharpened.  All that can be shaken, will be shaken, and all that remains will be the true work of the LORD.  This is how Christianity spread initially, with the early church.  During those early years, through great persecution, the fire of the HOLY SPIRIT ignited the very souls of  men and spread throughout the land.  Many have said that this was the 'former rain.'.

We see in history where there have been other times where the persecution of the saints bring in a great revival.  Another example would be China:

"In 1949, there were 1 million Christians in China (a total population of 541 million) and they faced severe persecution. Believers and pastors were imprisoned and Bibles were burnt in their thousands.  By 1979 China’s population was 969 million and the number of Christians was estimated to be over 10 million. That number soon doubled to 20 million." * 

You would think that our great enemy, satan, would have figured this out by now!  While he tries to wipe out GOD's people, instead the Christians multiple!  His evil ways always backfire on him!  What he has meant for harm, the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY always brings it around for good.

So, brothers and sisters, we need to be patient as we wait on the LORD for this Last Day outpouring of the HOLY SPIRIT.  These streams of living water will bring the spiritual harvest for the LORD!

"Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain."  James 5:37

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”  John 7:37

 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.

"And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days."  Joel 2:23, 28, 29

"Let us know,
Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD.
His going forth is established as the morning;
He will come to us like the rain,
Like the latter and former rain to the earth."  Hosea 6:3

"Be glad then, you children of Zion,
And rejoice in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully,]
And He will cause the rain to come down for you—
The former rain,
And the latter rain in the first month."  Joel 2: 23

“And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.

And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days."  Joel 2: 28, 29

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes."  Matthew 7

Yesterday, on Rosh Hashanah, the LORD showed me more about the state of the church.  HE showed me that judgment was starting and it is a life and death matter.  It was such a strong message that I can only share a part of it.  I was so sorrowful for the whole day after receiving it, that I cancelled all my plans.   Please seek confirmation from the LORD and ask for discernment.  There is 'house-cleaning' that is coming.


It grieves HIM today to see that state of HIS churches.  They have not accepted HIS messages.  They have turned their ear from HIM and have followed their own intent.  Their lips are for HIM but their hearts are far away.

 Judgment has fallen on the churches.  HE is cleaning house.  Then they will listen to HIM.

Their rebellion is clear--they hear only what they want to hear and throw out the rest.  This will not do!  HE will not tolerate it anymore.

 HIS voice will be heard across the land.  Some will heed and others not.  Their rebellion will continue until death.  I know that this is a hard message.  This is not to scare you, but to make you take notice of HIS soon coming wrath.  It is real.  The sin of many is ripping the very fabric of this world apart.  The lack of repentance will be their undoing.

HE is coming again soon and HE IS coming for a pure and spotless bride. 

HE is the one true and faithful GOD.  Jehovah-jirah (the LORD will provide) is HIS Name.   HE is the HOLY ONE from Israel.  HE is the CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.  No more will people speak ill of HIM-- soon HIS name will be on [all] their tongues.

The churches hear only what they want to hear.  They do not listen to the prophets that HE has sent.  They have rebelled against heaven and earth.  Repent now!  Fall on your faces.

 You have seen much, but HE has seen more.  You know much, but HE knows more.  Pride will be your downfall.  You don't know all--- you know little.

 Weep and mourn and maybe HE will relent.  Continue in your ways and more judgments will come your way.   Listen to HIS prophets.  They are HIS servants.  They hear from HIM.  They tell you the truth.

 Your time on earth is almost done.  Do not be stiff necked.  Do not harden your hearts.  These are life and death days.   Lines have been crossed.  Decisions now made.  Repent, Repent, Repent!


"because they have not heeded My words, says the LORD, which I sent to them by My servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; neither would you heed, says the LORD."  Jeremiah 29:19

Therefore the Lord said:
“Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
And honor Me with their lips,
But have removed their hearts far from Me,
And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,"    Isaiah 29:13

You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you."  Acts 7:51

"Now reform your ways and your actions and obey the LORD your God. Then the LORD will relent and not bring the disaster he has pronounced against you."  Jeremiah 26:13

"So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him."  2 Peter 3:14

                     GOD IS IN THE STORM
                     GO AND PREPARE

On 9/7/17,  before going to bed, I heard from the HOLY SPIRIT that HE was going to give me message.  Upon awaking the next  morning, I heard these words:

"Much destruction is coming--have I not already told you so?  This is by MY hand though others have said not. 

You must tell them that I am coming in the storm.  Many will look for ME but cannot find ME because I hide in the storm. 

I have pushed the 'reset' button.  All things will be washed clean.  All will be purged.  The time has come. I will watch over MY own.
They will be provided for.  They must not despair of what is coming.  All is in MY hands and nothing is lost without MY consent.

Look not back at what is coming, just press forward into MY kingdom.  Under MY wings you will find refuge  from the coming storms.

Do not delay in listening to MY voice.  Hearken to it?  I am here amidst the storm!  Get ready now!

Come away with Me, MY love.  Hide away under the shelter of MY wings and I will keep you safe.  You hear MY voice:  I AM the great IAM . Maker of Heaven and earth.  My time has now come to bring destruction upon the land.  You must go and hide now. 
Go now and prepare for what is coming. "

I want to break this message down into 3 parts:  'GOD is in the storm,'  'GOD is hiding in the storm,' and  'Go and prepare.'

When hard times come, we sometimes feel that the LORD isn't there or that HE has abandoned us.   In reality, the opposite is true!  These storms that HE allows, brings us to our knees and then,  from our souls springs a flood of prayers that are from our hearts.  This is where we truly meet the LORD!  It is with these heart-felt prayers and our cries that HE hears us and answers!   This is GOD IN THE STORM!!!

"Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind."  Job 38:1

"Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire."  Isaiah 29:6

During a hurricane, there is an 'eye' in the storm where there exists a calm, still and quiet place.  All around there are raging winds, torrents of rain and destructive forces.  However, in the calm of the eye, there is peace!  So it is in the spiritual realm--the LORD becomes our refuge, our strong tower, and our fortress, as we run to HIM during the storms of our lives. 

 This 'eye' of the storm is the 'secret place' where we can abide with the LORD above the waves of life.  Find this 'SECRET PLACE' and you have found GOD.   

"You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues." Psalms 31:20

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty"  Psalms 91:1


Does GOD hide?  In the above message I heard, " Many will look for ME but cannot find ME because I hide in the storm. "  I had never heard that before.  While reading it a second time, I wondered if I had heard correctly.  I always want to back up what I hear with the WORD of GOD, so I started looking to see if GOD does 'hide.'

What I found is a contrast:  GOD does indeed 'hide' HIS face, and the flip side is that HE also 'shines' HIS face upon those HE favors.  We all long to have favor with the LORD as well long for HIS face to shine upon us.  This favor can come if we keep drawing nearer and nearer to HIM by praying, fasting, repenting, and studying HIS WORD.

"Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation. "  Psalms 27:9

“And I will surely hide My face in that day because of all the evil which they have done, in that they have turned to other gods.´Deut. 31:18

"The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you"  Numbers 6:25

Restore us, O LORD God of hosts;
Cause Your face to shine,
And we shall be saved!"  Psalms 80:19


This was the last part of the message.   We are to go and get 'our houses in order.'   This is an important part of the message, because I believe the LORD was not only pointing to spiritually getting ready,  but physically.  I felt strongly in my spirit, after receiving this message, that I was to prepare with food and water, etc. 

 HE is giving warnings to HIS people so that they can prepare and be ready for what is coming.   Just like with Pharaoh's dream of the seven fat cows and the 7 lean cows (Genesis 41:2-3), which was a warning to prepare for the coming famine.   I believe that we, too, are going to be facing famines, water problems,  natural disasters, war and economic decline. 

The LORD has been so kind, long-suffering, and patient.  HE hears the prayers of HIS saints as we cry out for repentance and mercy.  HE holds in HIS hands the power to minimize or even negate the upcoming judgments ....if HIS people repent and pray! 

 We are to be responsible for our families and our loved ones by doing what we can for what lies ahead.  For each person or family this will look different, but the LORD will meet us at our point of need, if we ask  HIM.  

Pray and seek the LORD on how you are to prepare both physically and spiritually---get your houses in order, dear brothers and sisters!

"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:19
