Prophecy: Let It Rain Salvation, Favor and Vindication

by | May 4, 2021 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

I heard the Lord say, “Let it rain!”

We are in a kairos time for prayer answers, and now is not the time to let the pedal off the medal. Now is the time to press in, to press past the weariness and the flesh and make another push, to believe God for the first fruits of the prayer seeds we’ve been sowing—perhaps even for years.

The prophet Zechariah wrote, “Ask for rain from the Lord during the season of the latter spring rains. And the Lord will make the storm winds; and He will give them showers of rain; all will have vegetation in the field” (Zech. 10:1).

In the spirit, I heard the sound of the abundance of rain. Through our persistent importunity—our refusal to back down from the promises of God—we will see an end to what seems to many like a “prayer answer” drought that has led some cities into spiritual famine. God is saying, “The drought is over.” God has a spiritual awakening in mind.

Consider how this played out in Elijah’s day. After defeating the false prophets at Mt. Carmel with a spectacular display of God’s power, Elijah went to Ahab and announced he heard the sound of a mighty rainstorm coming. What did he do next? He prayed it in. We read in 1 Kings 18:42-46:

So Ahab got up to eat and drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel, and he threw himself down on the ground and put his face between his knees.

And he said to his servant, “Go up now, and look toward the sea.”

And he went up and looked and said, “There is nothing.”

And he said, “Go again,” seven times.

On the seventh time, he said, “A small cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising out of the sea.”

And he said, “Go up and say to Ahab, ‘Mount your chariot and get down, so that the rain does not stop you.'”

In the meantime, the sky turned black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode and went to Jezreel. The hand of the Lord was on Elijah, and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

Think about it for a minute: Israel had been living under brass heavens because of the wickedness of Ahab and Jezebel (see Deut. 28:23). But when the people of God, the Israelites, repented, the heavens broke open, and God sent the rain, ending the drought and the famine.
