“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.
2-It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3-As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descends upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore” (Psalm 133:1-3).
A RIVER FLOWING:
On this day in church during worship the Lord showed me a vision of what would be His holy mountain, such as Mt Sinai was God’s holy mountain in the wilderness with the Israelite children. I know this Scripture in Psalm 133 spoke of the dew of Hermon but what I saw goes beyond that. It was much more.
I saw a river flowing down the mountain in proportion to a tidal wave. It poured forth profusely and unhindered. At first, I thought it was only one river flowing down the mountain. When I looked closer, I could see that it was two that flowed so together in unison that they looked like one river flowing very forcefully and very powerfully.
This river flowing down the holy mountain of God speaks of double which speaks of the former and latter rain being poured out together as the last super outpouring of the Holy Spirit before the return of Jesus Christ to the earth (Joel 2:28, James 5:7, Amos 9:13).
HOW DRY THE DESERT:
As I watched this awesome river of the anointing of God flow down to the bottom of the mountain, I now noticed the desert around it. The land I saw was dry and parched. There was no sign of life showing anywhere I looked. Everything was withered and brown---no fruitfulness.
I couldn’t help but see the large cracks in the ground that spoke to me of things being broken and divided. People separated. It spoke to me of gaps and being estranged from God and from both natural and spiritual family. Broken relationships whether marriage partners, business partners, broken fellowship with church family, parents, children and other family, in ministry, with God and so on.
THE DESERT BLOOMS:
I watched as the river of God came down that mountain and made contact with this dry and barren land. When it touched those dried up and cracked places in the ground, instantly, they began coming together until the cracked places were filled in and made whole.
The dry ground began to drink up this water with great thirst. As it did, the ground began to take on a different look. It no longer looked hard and dry and brittle but rather, it became softened by the river. It became rich and fertile land.
Then, as I continued to watch, I saw green grass begin to appear. And flowers of all kinds and colors such as roses began popping out everywhere. (the desert was blooming like a rose). To my surprise, I began seeing full grown green trees (not seedlings) rising up out of the fertile soil (people are called “trees of righteousness”). When I asked the Lord what this meant, the following is what I believe I heard Him tell me.
THE RIVER FLOWS FROM THE THRONE:
“What I am now sending from My holy mountain is not as the dew on Hermon. It is the river of life flowing from the throne of God (Ezekiel 47). It is a healing river, and it is flowing now. My people, get in its flow of life and be healed.
This river flowing is a river of restoration. Get into the flow of My river and let it restore you, spirit, soul and body. It will close up the gaps of injustice and prejudice. It will mend the gaps of hurt and division---of hatred and unforgineness that so many walk in today.
Many of My very own walk about in these dry and barren places. They walk about with no meat, as it were, on their dry and brittle bones. The least little thing that bumps against them to offend, they crack. But I have come that you might have life and that you might have it now in abundance. It grieves Me that many of My people are wondering around in the dry desert of hopelessness and woundedness, barely alive. I AM the resurrection and the life. My children, you will find your life and your existance in Me.
Look and see that My river of life is flowing to you now. My people, get in it and live. Let My life-force infuse you to heal and restore you to wholeness. Let My life invigorate and empower you to rise and stand in that place where I have called you to stand. Let My life and My grace enable you to run your race in victory and not in failure. Know that I have gone before you to prepare the way, and I will never leave your side.
My beloved children, come out of the desert of unbelief and defeat. Step into My flowing river now by faith and allow it to wash away your pain. Experience My love and My ever abiding peace in your hearts. Experience My life. Come, My children and experience ME, for I love you with an everlasting love. I long to have you near Me.
Come, little one’s and drink deeply of My presence. Drink deeply of My water of life and you will never thirst again. Come into My flowing river now and be filled. Let me make you a fruitful land whereby you can help others to find Me. Come, children and know My love for you. Come and be rivived by the wind of My Spirit. Let My glory restore and heal you and make you ever wit whole.”
SCRIPTURE & COMMENTS:
II Chronicles 7:14, “If My people which are called by My name will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven; I will forgive their sins, and I will heal their land.”
Revelation 22:1-2, “The river of life coming from the throne of God...”
We’ve been in the year of the double. Double zero’s and double two’s. I hear more and more people talking about going for the double. It seems that the Holy Spirit is dropping it deep into our spirits about looking for and expecting double portion blessings. And know that as God is implanting these things into our spirit’s, the enemy is looking for the chance to steal it. We must guard against his thievry because God is taking us beyond the limits of anything the Church has ever known before. Its faith-stretching time for the body of Christ.
1-This has been and still is a year to not only ask for the double as Elisha did but to expect it.
2-The widows oil kept doubling as long as she kept doing her part to have pots to receive it in.
You have to prepare to receive the double portion. How? By doing whatever faith requires you to do.
3-Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing. (we often have not because we ask not).
There are many more Scriptures dealing with double. I encourage you to do your own search
and watch how the Holy Spirit will reveal golden nuggets of revelation to you.
4-A double portion outpouring was prophesied by both Joel and Peter as it was called the former
and the latter rain to be poured out together at the same time. Are we in that day of the double
outpouring? If we’re not, we sure are doubly close. What do you think?
