Prophetic Word: New Strength and Overflow Are Coming in May

by | Apr 26, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

As we step into May, the Lord showed me we’re stepping into a time of overflow and abundance. This also correlates with Pentecost coming up at the beginning of June and the word I released for April that things were breaking open. As things are beginning to break open and the resistance is shifting, it’s making way for a new flow of the Spirit of God to be released in you and on the earth.

Jesus declares in John 7:37-40 (AMPC), leading up to Pentecost, “Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water. But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor). Listening to those words, some of the multitude said, This is certainly and beyond doubt the Prophet!”

In this prophetic season, as we’ve celebrated Purim and Passover, God has been positioning His people for divine kairos moments. God has been exposing the “Hamans” and releasing deliverance from the “Pharaohs” to position us to walk into the new and a place of overflow.

Another prophetic marker to recognize in this season is Nisan, the first month of the Hebrew calendar. New things are starting and springing forth because of the new season. The Hebrew meaning of Nisan is firstfruits and the first month of spring. This prophetic indicator is also matching the natural season of spring that we’re stepping into. Get ready for new things to begin to manifest.

Just as things in the natural are shifting and lockdowns are unlocking in the world, it’s a prophetic glimpse of what is taking place in the spirit. Be anxious for nothing and let perseverance and patience have their perfect work in your life (Jas. 1:4). God is working all things together for your good.

In April, I mentioned we’re entering into a season of divine angelic activity, and that record winds and tornadoes would be a sign of this. The winds are being released to bring change and break down systems. We’re going to continue to see greater angelic activity upon the earth. I even see some news stories covering “mysterious angel encounters.”

Just as the winds are increasing, there are some of you who have felt like the wind has been knocked out of you because of blow after blow you’ve taken. I want to encourage you with what I heard the Lord say recently concerning this: “Tell My people they’re going to catch their breath in this season. Where you have been weary and tired, take a breath. When you take a breath, you’re breathing in My Spirit. Faint not, My beloved. Breathe. There’s a fresh wind coming to you that will refresh and energize you for the journey ahead! There’s a new strength coming to you.”

There are many of you who feel like the wind has been knocked out of you. But God is restoring the wind you lost with a fresh wind. This is needed as we enter into the second half of 2022, as the pace and intensity are picking up.

The Glory Train

Let’s take a look at 1 Kings 18. Earlier in this chapter Elijah had a showdown with the prophets of Baal and defeated them. After this took place, Elijah began to pray for rain because it had been three years since it last rained.

First Kings 18:41-46 says, “Then Elijah said to Ahab, ‘Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming!’ So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees. Then he said to his servant, ‘Go and look out toward the sea.’ The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, ‘I didn’t see anything.’ Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, ‘I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.’ Then Elijah shouted, ‘Hurry to Ahab and tell him, “Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!”‘ And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. Then the LORD gave special strength to Elijah. He tucked his cloak into his belt and ran ahead of Ahab’s chariot all the way to the entrance of Jezreel.”

It had been three years since it had rained in the land.

After the showdown, Elijah began to first hear the sound of a mighty rainstorm coming. He got in the posture of prayer, the birthing position, and began to call forth the rain. On the seventh time, which is the number of completion, it was finished and now the rain could come. Elijah warned Ahab to eat and drink because the glory of God was getting ready to be released and it was going to remove anything in its path. God is bringing a completion in your life so the new can come.
