Throughout the years, I have personally experienced the teaching and prophetic ministry of Dr. Kim Black. God has uniquely anointed her to pull on the heartstrings of His spiritual children and congregations by releasing the deep yearnings of the Father's heart for them.
God often uses her to express His divine design for His children through powerful, poetic revelation and imagery. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"He knows we are His since He has also stamped His seal of love over our hearts and has given us the Holy Spirit like an engagement ring is given to a bride – a down payment of the blessings to come!" (2 Cor. 1:22)
I hear the Spirit of the Lord declaring, "Greater, greater, greater is on the way!"
In this hour, the Spirit of the Lord is inviting His Church, His Bride, to experience the greater things of the Spirit and life in His Kingdom. In the midst of the chaos of flus, viruses, rumors and political upheavals, His promises still stand; the Bride will experience the marvelous works of the Lord.
When a bride-to-be receives her engagement ring, there is always much joy. This woman in love understands her ring is a promise of a greater covenant yet to come. This beautiful ring implies an invitation to participate in more; more of life, more of love and more of joy. The groom in love is stating his eternal love and affection for her: "I take you as my wife." He will protect her, love her and help her grow into the woman of purpose God has ordained. The promise of love, children and a future of building a life together encases their hearts. (Photo via Unsplash)
This ring is also a symbol which the bride wears to testify to the world, "I have found the one I love. I have been chosen!" The ring on her finger notifies the world that she said, "Yes! I will commit to loving you and have eyes for you and you alone."
Receive Your Ring
The Bible says that the Spirit of Christ Himself is our seal, our ring – an earnest deposit of greater blessings to come. When we said yes to Him in covenant commitment, Christ sealed us with His Spirit as a down payment of "greater to come." The Holy Spirit is the engagement ring given to the Bride as a down payment; an earnest deposit of the blessings and promises to invade our lives. This seal is living, and He lives in us.
The Spirit of the Lord is waiting for His Bride to remember that He has done the work! There is more of His grace, more of His power, more revelation for the Church to receive and live out in abundance. Don't hold back but instead go forth in confidence. The enemy is whispering lies through fear and intimidation, but the Lord has already won the battle. Do you believe God for more? Greater is coming! We must begin to remember His promises. They are still true.
Jesus Is the Same God
Our God is not a wishy-washy, flippy-floppy God! Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:8). God is not teasing us. The Bible clearly declares, "For all God's promises find their 'yes' of fulfillment in Him..." (2 Cor. 1:20 TPT). In Christ, we should expect greater! Christ has not changed His mind concerning His plan or purpose. He is still shouting a resounding "YES!" – "yes" to your victory, "yes" to your breakthrough, "yes" to your new beginning; "Yes, yes, yes," says the Lord! (Photo via Unsplash)
It's time to open our mouths and our hearts to the eternal "yes" of commitment from God. It's time to release fresh belief in the ability and promises of God. Expect to see His greatness show up in the earth. Receive your ring and the promise of greater. Receive a fresh infilling of the Holy Ghost.
Release Your Amen
The Bible says that there is a response to the "yes" of God. 2 Cor. 1:20, "...So through Him we say our 'Amen' to the glory of God." He's waiting for your "amen." "Amen" means let it be so. As His "yes" and our "amen" meet, they ascend to God, and we bring Him glory. Imagine that. As we say "Amen" or "Let it be so," the sound permeates the heavens as an offering. This couple and union of "yes and amen" passes through adversity right into the heavens and brings glory to God.
Be encouraged, greater is He who lives in you than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4). Receive the living seal of the Holy Spirit. Receive the ring of "greater to come!"
