I've always said that Chad Taylor is the "real deal"...as he ministers to people from all walks of life in the highways and byways.
In this powerful revelation and word of the Lord, you're going to receive great understanding in the challenges you've walked through and how God is turning things around NOW on your behalf.
As you read through Chad's words, many of you will relate to this Scripture, "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living" (Psalm 27:13). (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Genesis 50:20, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people."
The Lord says, "You will suddenly see, like scales falling from your eyes, ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD, and that which was meant to utterly destroy you will become a blessing.
"Just as Joseph in Genesis 50:20 (emphasis added) exclaimed, 'You intended to harm me (destroy me) but God intended it for my good and the salvation of many people!'â€”you will see with sudden clarity that every pitfall, setback, attack and apparent failure is now the lighthouse illuminating your future and what I have prepared for you to do!"
Your Scars Will Be a Mile-Marker
The Lord says, "Your scars will be a mile-marker of how far I will take you, and the setbacks will be a roadmap of your future as I make the path plain before you (Psalm 27:11)! All that you have endured and have suffered will now serve as the keys that set the captives free and open the prison doors to those oppressed.
"Your broken heart will be a Balm of Gilead and the oil of joy for sorrow. Your scars are the keys now that open their hearts," says the Lord. "Despise not these small beginnings!"
"Then he said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don't be faithless any longer. Believe!'" (John 20:27)
The Blind Will Now Arise and Shine!
The Lord says, "Many have not believed the report that they would do the greater works; they have resigned to the deception that they are second class and will never accomplish what I have intended for them. But even now, the blind will arise and shine and I will lift up the hands that hang down and strengthen the feeble knees (Hebrews 12:12).
"Like Blind Bartimaeus, suddenly they will hear the word of the Lord above the din of contrary voices, casting off the weathered garments of the pastâ€”no more sackcloth and ash! They will no longer be defined by who they were but who they are in Me, new creations in Christ. The blind will arise and shine and the captives will be set free."
"[A]nd on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor..." (1 Corinthians 12:23)
The Sacrilegious Will Become Sacred
"Then he said to me, 'Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, "This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again."'" (Ezekiel 37:9)
The Lord says, "The most evil of intentions and actions will suddenly change, and where once gross darkness prevailed, great light will shine. From the darkest backdrops, light will illuminate and those that wrought evil will rise up to do good!
"Akin to the man tormented by Legion in the tombs, these now healed and delivered people will beseech the Lord to do His work and many other people will be saved because of the testimony of those now born again! From movie sets to evil sects, a grace will abound, and from the darkness they will arise and shine! This promise is now in full effect," says the Lord.
"[T]he people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned." (Matthew 4:16)
The Dawn of a New Paradigm
"Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved." (Acts 2:46-47)
The Father says, "Homes, open fields and parking lots, parks and street corners, public buildings and everywhere people gather, My Church will be an ensign â€“ they will arise and shine! The convenience of buildings and the need to be confined will give way to a new day as she sees the world as a field again. Like Ruth, the Church will find her threshing floor and the years that have been wasted will now be redeemed!
"And Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, 'Please let me go to the field and glean among the ears of grain after one in whose sight I may find favor.' And she said to her, 'Go, my daughter.'" (Ruth 2:2)
The Stone of Sickness and Untimely Death Will Be Rolled Away
"Then Jesus shouted, 'Lazarus, come out!'" (John 11:43)
"Many on their sick beds dying will now rise up and walk because of the insatiable hunger to share their testimony. They will be the evangelists that bring Good News to the nations and the plowmen that overtake the sower. Many will cry out, 'Are not these the ones that were dead and dying?' And like the man at the Gate Beautiful, you will arise, walk and tell the world of the miracle of My salvation! I am even now shoeing your feet for the Gospel of Peace," says the Lord.
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed." (Isaiah 61:1)
Gold in the Fish's Mouth and the Widow's Might
"...[G]o to the sea and cast a hook and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for Me and for yourself." (Matthew 17:27)
"Surely the poor will now say, 'I am rich because of what the Lord has done for me!' Even as I prospered Ruth as she determined to reap in the fields that were prepared for harvest, I will prosper those that have been faithful with so little," says the Lord. "I will give favor where there was none and honor that has been long overdue. Surely I will pour out blessings that they cannot contain!"
"While Jesus was in the Temple, He watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. 'I tell you the truth,' Jesus said, 'this poor widow has given more than all the rest of them.'" (Luke 21:1-3)
The Day of David's Mighty Men
"And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul, gathered to Him. And He became commander over them..." (1 Samuel 22:2)
The Lord says, "Even as the broken and disenfranchised gathered around the rejected King, I will even now gather those that have been disqualified and undignified. I will give them beauty for ashes and anoint them for the greater works. They will possess cities and from their testimony I will heal the land. They will carry a 'missionary' zeal that the Father's house would be filled and countless multitudes will be saved!"
"For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong." (1 Corinthians 1:26-27)
These Are the Days of Ruth and Rahab
"...Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the Kingdom of God ahead of you." (Matthew 21:31)
The Lord says, "Ruth found her threshing floor, Rahab found her scarlet banner, Elizabeth sang a new song and the land was saved! These days will have the distinguishing marks of Ruth and Rahab; an insatiable hunger to harvest will take precedence and the grace to save cities will prevail. From their blessing will come the feeding of the five thousand, and the poor will find bread and the sick will be healed. 'Where you go I will go!' will be the their prophetic song (Ruth 1:16)."
"But His own people have been robbed and plundered, enslaved, imprisoned, and trapped. They are fair game for anyone and have no one to protect them, no one to take them back home. Who will hear these lessons from the past
and see the ruin that awaits you in the future?" (Isaiah 42:22-23)
Widows and Orphans Will Be Emancipated
"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world." (James 1:27)
"The premeditated assault on those barren, bruised and broken will cease and desist as I raise up an army to rescue them," says the Lord. "Like Joshua and his company, I will send and commission them to rescue those in distress. Widows and orphans will be My choice fruit as I cause their enemies to stumble. The wealth that the wicked have held back will now be released to the uncomely parts, for even now do I declare that the famine is over!"
"On that day the LORD will protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them on that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the angel of the LORD, going before them..." (Zechariah 12:8) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Consuming Fire Ministries
Chad TaylorÂ is known around the world for his three critically acclaimed books,Â Why Revival Still Tarries andÂ The Cry of the Harvest, including the newly published sequel to the Cry of the Harvest, a Vision of the Harvest. After 15+ years as a prophetic voice to the nations and a full-time minister on television, radio and conferences, his passion and attention is often found elsewhere; with the broken, bedraggled, and unreached masses that are yet to be touched with the matchless love of Jesus. Chad has been called Prophet, Evangelist and a modern-day Revivalist but you will most likely find Chad under a bridge, a street corner and an inner-city basketball court than the meeting hall and if you're in his company long enough you will be as well! Chad currently resides in Georgia with his wife and three children.
