I have had this post in my draft box for quite awhile now waiting for the right time to post, but after the call to arms (prayer) that Allan trumpeted last night/early morning – I think it is time to post it.
Many of you read, prayed for, and encouraged me from the posting entitled, “Healing Rain”. I have been getting more rest and my frame of mind is no longer that of a “quitter” but a “finisher”. Infact, I want to share what I am claiming as the promises/covenant of the rainbow after this season of rain. I am claiming it for post-FEAST.
I believe God desires to do something amazing – not just amazing, but profound. . . not just profound. . . something that will keep our jaws on the ground for some time. Dream BIG with me:
1. An outpouring of the Holy Spirit will fall upon young adults and their spiritual leaders in the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Then, after doing all those things,
I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams,
and your young men will see visions.
In those days I will pour out my Spirit
even on servants—men and women alike. (Joel 2:28-29; New Living Translation)
2.) The kingdom of God will advance in amazing proportions.
Lord will enlarge your kingdom beyond Jerusalem,
and you will rule over your enemies.
Your people will join you on your day of battle.
You have been dressed in holiness from birth;
you have the freshness of a child. (Psalms 110:2-3; New Century Version)
3.) Amazing stories of God’s salvation will be shared.
Then anyone who calls on the Lord
will be saved,
because on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
there will be people who will be saved,
just as the Lord has said. (Joel 2:32; New Century Version)
4.) Amazing stories of God’s deliverance will be shared.
My deliverance draws near speedily, my salvation has gone forth, and my arms will rule the peoples; the coastlands wait for me, and for my arm they hope. (Isaiah 51:5; Revised Standard Bible)
5.) Young adults will proclaim God’s power and story from the east coast to the west.
The Spirit of the Lord God is on me, because the Lord has chosen me to bring good news to poor people. He has sent me to heal those with a sad heart. He has sent me to tell those who are being held and those in prison that they can go free. He has sent me to tell about the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day our God will bring punishment. He has sent me to comfort all who are filled with sorrow. (Isaiah 61:1-2; New Life Version)
6.) Young Adults will be passionately involved social justice problems.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Enter, you who are blessed by my Father! Take what’s coming to you in this kingdom. It’s been ready for you since the world’s foundation. And here’s why:
I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.’
Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:34-39; Message Bible)
7. What is God placing on your heart? What is the VISION He is giving you?
Stay tuned another VISION from another spiritual leader of young people will be posted soon.
