This past week, the Lord gave me a powerful word while in prayer. I shared the first part of it on Saturday in my post titled New Wine. Today, I will be sharing the second part of that word.
The Lord said, “To the degree that My children display hunger for a move of My Spirit is the degree that I will meet them and pour it out. Hunger precedes precipitation. Precipitation breeds expectation. Expectation ushers in outpouring. There MUST be a holy discontentment with business as usual. That discontentment cries out that there must be more than what you see and feel, which tills the ground making it ripe for the harvest.
You must exhaust yourself of yourself. You must purpose that what you see is nothing compared to what I am capable and willing to do.
How hungry are you? Hunger is the best seasoning to a craving spirit. How bad do you want it? How bad do you want what I am willing to give? YOU pave the way for an inexhaustible outpouring to come forth! Then be amazed at what I pour out!”
“Those who are tired of things as usual will surely change the world!”
David Hogan, a Warrior for the Kingdom said once while inspired by the Holy Spirit, “If you want a move of God, you move and then God moves.”
Larry Sparks in his book, Ask For Rain: Receiving Your Inheritance of Revival and Outpouring stated, “The rains of revival have already been poured out to us so that we can cry out for an even greater demonstration of God’s power and Presence to be poured out through us. It all begins and ends with hunger.”
Fasting Precipitates the Latter Rain.
“…Surely the Lord has done great things! Don’t be afraid, O land. Be glad now and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things. Don’t be afraid, you animals of the field, for the wilderness pastures will soon be green. The trees will again be filled with fruit; fig trees and grapevines will be loaded down once more. Rejoice (be glad), you people of Jerusalem! Rejoice (delight) in the Lord your God! For the (former) rain He sends demonstrates His faithfulness. Once more the autumn rains (abundant showers) will come (for you, showers of words to refresh and nourish your soul), as well as the (latter) rains of spring. The threshing floors will again be piled high with grain, and the presses will overflow with new wine and olive oil.”
The rains of His Spirit have already been poured out. He is calling us to a higher level. We can no longer continue in the daily grind…He is way beyond that and He has no respect for our boxes that we try to confine Him to. In the same regard, we have to get out of the way. There is no place in the outpouring for our expectations, pride, entitlements, or whatever is a hang up. When we truly come to a place of total inability, that is when God can use us most powerfully. It is in that place that He will get all the glory He is due for what He releases.
Part 3 and the conclusion to this prophetic word from the Lord will come within the next few days.

Word of the Lord for America- December 8, 2017
There is much in store for this country. You will see a new wave yet. There is much to come for My hand has not lifted completely nor have I turned My face from My children. I am one of compassion and am slow to anger, abounding in love.
America, your days are not over yet. It is time to stop rejecting My hand of redemption at work in you. I am indeed in control and am using the ones I put in place to turn the tide of evil and destruction. Yes, you may not see it or want to, but I have established My hand where it is most effective to bring a shifting. I know what I am doing. More than any man ever could.
I am doing a new thing and it will look different than anything that preceded it. Do not resist it like a stubborn child refusing the choice meat I put before you and instead choosing to live off of the meager rations of leftovers. There is much to be done still and much change to come. The enemy is being conquered and overthrown and I am bringing forth a new face. Look and see it coming forth even now.
“Listen to me, O family of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and born into the family of Judah. Listen, you who take oaths in the name of the Lord and call on the God of Israel. You don’t keep your promises, even though you call yourself the holy city and talk about depending on the God of Israel, whose name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly I took action, and all My predictions came true. For I know how stubborn and obstinate you are. Your necks are as unbending as iron. Your heads are as hard as bronze. That is why I told you what would happen; I told you beforehand what I was going to do. Then you could never say, ‘My idols did it. My wooden image and metal god commanded it to happen!’
You have heard My predictions and seen them fulfilled, but you refuse to admit it. Now I will tell you new things, secrets you have not yet heard. They are brand new, not things from the past. So you cannot say, ‘We knew that all the time!’ “Yes, I will tell you of things that are entirely new, things you never heard of before. For I know so well what traitors you are. You have been rebels from birth. Yet for My own sake and for the honor of My name, I will hold back My anger and not wipe you out. I have refined you, but not as silver is refined. Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of suffering. I will rescue you for My sake— yes, for My own sake! I will not let My reputation be tarnished, and I will not share My glory with idols!”
