Be sure to read Part 1 before you continue reading Part 2…
A few days after I had this dream (See Part 1) the Lord woke me up one morning with a clear word in my spirit: “Like Elijah you need to be fed twice”. I immediately understood that God is instructing us to ask Him to feed us a double portion for the coming second storm.
In 1 Kings 19:1-8 we read the story of how Elijah fled from Jezebel. This was after she threatened to kill Him in the same way he killed the prophets of Baal.
After he left his servant in Beersheba, we read:
“But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!” Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. And the angel of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.”
~ 1 Kings 19:4-8
ARISE AND EAT, THE JOURNEY IS TOO GREAT FOR YOU
During this time of transition, Elijah’s greatest enemy was fear and depression. Fear paralysed him as he lay under the broom tree. He wanted to die. He believed that he had failed God.
God saw Elijah at his weakest point and sent him food, supernaturally prepared by an angel.
He had to be fed twice, for the forty-day journey into the wilderness was too great for him. Forty days symbolises a time of testing. Elijah was in great dependence upon the Lord to sustain him for this journey.
We should not allow fear and fear of failure to overtake us in these TIMES of transition and testing. God is making a way out – He will send supernatural provision our way. You should ask God to feed you twice!
We need a DOUBLE PORTION of revelation in this hour. We need to know who our God is, what He has promised and what He is able to do for us! We need to prayerfully study and meditate on Scripture! Now is the time to eat God’s Word!
Discerning His Whispers
After the 40-day journey, Elijah had an encounter with God. God revealed Himself to Elijah in a still small voice (1 Ki 19: 11 -13).
After a great and strong wind, an earthquake and fire, God chose a gentle whisper to reveal himself to Elijah. God will take us through a time of testing to bring us to a place of stillness and draw us deeper into His presence.
The purpose of the testing is to teach us to hear His whispers. Discerning His whispers is crucial for the times we are moving in as mass deception will be released upon the earth. Our ears need to be circumcised to hear His whispers amid the coming turmoil and deception.
Time of Testing Followed by New Assignments
Elijah was catapulted into new assignments after he endured the forty-day journey. After the coming second storm, God will release greater authority upon His remnant bride.
This authority will only be gained by learning greater dependence upon God. Strength and power will be gained through surrender.
Only those who are fed by and whose ears are circumcised by the Word of God will hear His whispers and walk in this greater authority for the new assignments.
“To whom shall I speak and give warning, That they may hear? Indeed their ear is uncircumcised, And they cannot give heed. Behold, the word of the Lord is a reproach to them; They have no delight in it.”
~ Jeremiah 6:10
