From the desk of Steve Shultz:
As we are entering a new year, let's ask the Lord to release new favor for new things. Keith Miller's words are always full of encouragement and I know his latest will get you excited for all God has in store for you in this the new year.
Also, would you do me a favor? Please help us keep sending you words by buying as many prophetic items as you are able to from the Elijah List at this link: www.elijahshopper.com. You might save a buck by buying it online through Amazon, but you'll help us build the Kingdom more effectively if you buy things through us. Will you consider that "proposal"? Thank you for supporting us!
A Time of Release and Favor!
In the light of the king's face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain. Proverbs 16:15
May the Lord's brilliancy be upon you in a great way, and may you reflect His light – the light that releases the manifold wisdom of God through your life!
A Cloud of Favor
Ephesians 3:12 says, "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him."
In other words, we have been given unlimited access. Let us go boldly before His throne, and let us also be awakened to the fullness of the blessing of living in continuous fellowship with Him who sits on the throne. Let this be an increased time of living under open heavens so that we would reflect His glory! May a cloud of His presence – the presence that is true favor and true riches – release the latter rain upon us for a fresh time of harvest for us and our households.
• Get ready! Be of good cheer! Celebrate! Your eyes shall see the glory of the Lord.
• Ask now for the latter rain. Ask now for the harvest!
• Ask now for the King to grant you favor to possess the Kingdom!
The Lord wants to use our lives to display His goodness, His grace, and His manifold wisdom. Let's ask the Lord to release a cloud of favor – the favor that releases the latter rain. All we need to do is ask! It is His good pleasure to give to us the Kingdom – to give us favor to walk in the fullness of our inheritance.
A Time of Release
If you've been going through a narrow place, I decree over your life that it is a time of release for you. As you go through the gates, you will make a powerful transition in the spirit. As you say yes to Him and as you enter through the doors that He opens, you will be prepared for the courses to be laid for the many to come. Your breakthrough today will become breakthrough for many in the future. This is what the prophet Joel wrote about:
Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you – The former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. Joel 2:23-24
• Be glad! Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice! Rejoice in the Lord your God.
• Release a great shout of praise right now! Rejoice in the Lord.
• Shout with shouts of joy! Shout with shouts of victory! Shout with shouts of exuberance!
• Celebrate in the light of the King's face! The light of the King's face is life!
We have unlimited access!
We are about to see the demonstration of the revelation of this. Yes, we will experience the reality of living, functioning, and ministering under the fullness of our inheritance of an open heaven in our lives.
To this end, I pray the Lord releases to you the latter rain to bring a harvest, new wine, and fresh oil for you, and your household for 2013!
Thank You, wonderful Jesus, for the fresh rain of Your presence. Release it upon all who read this. Thank You for the privilege of coming with great boldness and confidence before You and beholding You! We behold the light of the King's face – the light that releases life and a cloud of favor that releases the latter rain. Thank You, Lord, for releasing the Harvest Rain. In Jesus's mighty name, amen.
Richest blessings to you,
Keith Miller and Janet Miller
