A Mighty Rushing Wind
March 22, 2017
In the book of Acts chapter two we read about the day of Pentecost when the disciples were in the Upper Room in one accord, and suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gave them utterance. They were so intoxicated with the glory of God that some of the onlookers thought that they were literally drunk with wine. Peter went on to say, these men are not drunk as you suppose, and he quoted the prophecy from the book of Joel 2:28-32.
“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:1-4)
In the book of Acts chapter four Peter and John were thrown into prison because they were speaking about Jesus being resurrected from the dead. A revival broke out in the prison and many were healed. They were brought before the elders, the scribes and the high priests. After witnessing many miracles, they asked Peter and John, by what power or by what name have you done this? Then Peter filled with the Holy Ghost told them that it was by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who was crucified, and God raised from the dead. When they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. They realized that peter and John had been with Jesus.
Although Peter and John were threatened and told not to speak in Jesus’ name, they were so consumed with His glory that they continued to speak about His miraculous power. They prayed, and asked the Lord for boldness, to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Jesus. As they were praying, the building where they were assembled literally shook and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus." And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:29-31)
The Lord says, “The winds are stirring once again, and I Am releasing a mighty wind of My glory to transform lives ‘suddenly.’ Multitudes will be brought into the Kingdom for such a time as this. Many will be healed, captives will be delivered and set free, and many will be brought into repentance. Just as the plates are shifting under the seas causing earthquakes of great magnitudes, there is a shift happening simultaneously in the heavenlies. I Am stirring the atmosphere to bring change to the Church as you know it. Angelic activity is being released from the third Heaven that no man can stop or reverse. Do not judge things by what you see happening in the natural, but watch what I Am about to do. I Am El Shaddai and I am sending a tsunami of My glory over the nations.
“Just as the winds are blowing in the natural, I Am about to send a mighty rushing wind across this nation and around the world. Just as the winds came ‘suddenly’ in the upper room, I Am sending My Glory to revamp things in the natural. That which I intended for in these last days shall be accomplished. There will be a great acceleration in the lives and hearts of people. I will bring times of refreshing in times of drought. I will bring light to areas where darkness seems to prevail. I Am sending the latter and the former rains. Do not become fearful when you see the dark clouds but rejoice. It is the dark clouds that carry the heavy rain. This is where My glory dwells and My Anointing will be released. As I said in My Word, the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea,” says the Lord.
“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)
