Steve Shultz

Are you ready for your bounty in the Lord...and in this time?

This is one very heartfelt word from Jamie Rohrbaugh that will speak volumes to many in this very hour.

Some of you really need this encouragement right now, as Jamie says here:

Beloved, the Lord wants you to know that prosperity is coming again! The layers are full and the bounties are rich. What you are learning and experiencing in this difficult layer is a key to your growth, and to the explosion in and of your prosperity again! For prosperity will come again.

Steve ShultzThat is not only prosperity in the natural, but prosperity in your soul...after all, Scripture tells us in 3 John 1:2, "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers."

Enjoy this word from Jamie...and we pray that your bounties will be full in every good way! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Beloved, have you been dealing with unspeakable hardship and soul agony in this season of life? If so, this prophetic word from the Lord, and from His Scripture, is going to minister to you in a big way!

Recently one morning, just before waking, I heard the Lord say to me as I slept, "Ecclesiastes 1:8. The layers are full and the bounties are rich." Then He woke me up. I immediately wrote down what I heard Him speak, and opened my Bible to Ecclesiastes 1:8 to see what it said.

Ecclesiastes 1:8 (NKJV) says this: "All things are full of labor; man cannot express it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing."

A Cloud the Size of a Man's Hand

The Lord immediately spoke to me and showed me these things as a prophetic word for all of us today.

First, the Lord sees how hard things are for you right now. He sees how hard you are working and how much you are trying. He sees the travail of your soul and knows that your pain and labor go beyond anything words can express. He sees you resting and seeking Him with all your heart, contending in prayer for everything you desire.

The Lord also sees and acknowledges that you have not yet received many of the things for which you have been praying.

Many of your prayers look like they have not been answered. In many instances, your troubles seem to outnumber your victories these days. You want things to get easier, but they seem to just stay hard or get harder instead. Today, the Father wants you to know that even though your eye is not seeing the answers for which you have been praying, and even though your ear is not hearing the good news for which you have been praying (yet)... oh, my friend, I hear the little sound of rain. There is a cloud the size of a man's hand on your horizon, and the rain is coming.

The Layers Are Full and the Bounties Are Rich

You are only in a layer of experience in this life. In this layer, things have been hard. But you know what? The layers are full and the bounties are rich. Even in the hardship of this layer, it has been full of revelation for you; it has been full of teaching and purging. Holy Spirit has personally been teaching you to trust Him more, and to be content with what you have in order to be abased and abound.

As the apostle Paul wrote, while under the influence of Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4, "But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound.

"Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress." (Philippians 4:10-14 NKJV) (Photo via Pexels)

The passage above was written in a time when Paul had just finished coming through a "layer" of great financial need. Nevertheless, during that layer, and others, the Lord had taught him how to be content and to keep his eyes on Jesus, despite lack and want, and even despite abundance.

Paul's "layer" of need and distress was full of spiritual revelation, even though it was really hard on him physically and financially.

Working for Your Good

Beloved, the "layer" you are in right now is full for you too, but you have to learn to look for the fullness. You have to be willing to seek God, no matter what – even though your eye is not satisfied with seeing what you've prayed for, and your ear is not getting to hear the good news for which you've been contending.

You have to ask the Lord how He is working this out for your good, for it says in Romans 8:28: "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28 NKJV).

God is working it out for your good. The layers are full and the bounties are rich. This hard layer is going to pass; it won't last forever.

"...Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning!" (Psalm 30:5 NKJV)

Beloved, the Lord wants you to know that prosperity is coming again! The layers are full and the bounties are rich. What you are learning and experiencing in this difficult layer is a key to your growth, and to the explosion in and of your prosperity again! For prosperity will come again.

He Is Restoring You Better Than You Were Before

How do I know? Because look at what Ecclesiastes 1:9 says. This is the very verse after Ecclesiastes 1:8, where God acknowledged that "the eye is not satisfied" right now! Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NKJV) is also vital to this word:

"That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun." (Photo via Pixabay)

Oh beloved, God may have you in a difficult layer right now, but prosperity is coming again. The layers are full and the bounties are rich! This layer has been filled with spiritual purging and revelation; it has been filled with growth – despite it being one of the most difficult times that you can remember! But friend, you used to prosper. You used to have prosperity in your thinking, in your doing, in your finances, and in every other way!

Friend, the bounties of this layer will be rich for you.
They are rich spiritually, now, already. When the Lord works out your tests and trials in this layer for your good, you will find yourself restored better than you have ever been restored before. The layers are full and the bounties are rich.

Oh friend, I encourage you to read and memorize Ecclesiastes 1:8-9. Know and be comforted by the fact that the Father sees your hardship. He sees that words cannot even express the agony of your spirit and soul. He sees that you feel like the heavens are brass above you when it comes to certain areas of answered (or not yet answered) prayer. But the layers are full and the bounties are rich.

Look for the spiritual growth and fullness of this layer. If you're having a hard time spotting it, ask Holy Spirit to show you what the growth and fullness you are experiencing here look like. He will encourage you personally!

The bounties you will reap from this layer will bless you the rest of your life. For what has been is what will be; what has been is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun!

Prosperity is coming again! God's Word is true, and He cannot tell a lie!
