A Month of Abundant Rain

Dear friend,
 
Praise the Name of the Living God. We hope that you and your entire household are well.  My wife and I are very well and are grateful to the Lord for every step we are taking with the Lord. He is a Great Father, A Great Leader and above all, A Great Friend.
I hear in my spirit the sound of the abundance of Rain!
 
In 1 Kings 18:41, the Bible says “And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.”
Ahab  was one of the Kings who reigned in Israel during the time of Prophet Elijah. He was one who condoned and promoted so much evil. He encouraged Idol worship and the Bible says in 1 Kings 16:30 “And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.” But thank God, that the  Lord found a voice of righteousness in Prophet Elijah and we read in 1 Kings 17:1 “And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.”  
 
The drought is coming to an end
 
After three years and six months just as the prophet had said, we read in 1 Kings 18:41…“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.” The period of drought had come to an end. I declare that your own drought is coming to an end.
 
The inhabitants of Israel suffered because of the sins of their King. You may be suffering from the consequences of actions that were not your own; I have good news for you; there is the sound of the abundance of rain so get ready.
 
Definitely, because of the drought upon the land, the price of items skyrocketed; things became too expensive for the ordinary man. You may be experiencing this right now in your own life, but I have news for you, God is divinely going to intervene for your sake!
Old strongholds are coming down:
 
 Before the rain, all the prophets of baal were killed. We read in 1 Kings 18:40 “And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.”  Friend, strongholds in your life, in your family, in your ministry, on your job, in your nation will be totally destroyed in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. I declare that, in your life, every generational curses, generational customs that do not align with God’s Word will be totally destroyed in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Abundant Rain:
 
When it rains, there is life. There is joy, there is celebration. There is growth and there is prosperity. Position yourself to receive new life. Every area of your life where death seems to linger – be it your finances, your health, in the area of your education, your ministry and or your family. I declare to you that “The giver of Abundant life” is coming your way this day to bring about a Great Change in that area in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
 
Celebration Time:
 
When it rains, we see children running around enjoying the showers of blessings. I decree that a season of celebration has come your way this day in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. I declare that the enemy will not be able to steal your joy anymore. God Himself is turning your situation around. He is giving you “…beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”  (Isaiah 61:3). This is your season of abundant rain.
Spiritually, the rain is symbolic of His Spirit. Expect a great outpouring of His Spirit upon your life. God declares in Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:” Begin to declare this upon yourself and your household. Yes, begin to see God pouring out His spirit as never before and see a turn-around in your spiritual life. Hallelujah.
 
This is your season for Abundant Rain.
 
Get ready, Get ready, Get ready,
 
Remain blessed,
 
Bro. Chester
