Moving from extreme drought to overwhelming abundance


Archbishop (Dr.)<br />Olanrewaju OBEMBE

1 Kings 18:41,45, “And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; FOR THERE IS A SOUND OF ABUNDANCE OF RAIN; And it came to pass IN THE MEAN WHILE, that the Heaven was black with clouds and wind, AND THERE WAS A GREAT RAIN.” Zechariah 10:1 “ASK YE OF THE LORD rain in the time of the LATTER RAIN; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and GIVE THEM SHOWERS OF RAIN, to EVERY ONE grass in the field.”

It is amazing how nature operates as there is no permanent weather. It is written, Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and COLD AND HEAT and SUMMER AND WINTER and DAY AND NIGHT shall not cease.” It could be rainy season now, to be followed by dry season with another continuous cycle of change. There is no vacuum in nature. For three and half years, the Israelites were in extreme drought in an Agrarian environment. There was no rain. Rain was their source of ecological and agricultural replenishment. Rain brings nurture, life and sustenance to vegetation. Without rain, plants cannot grow and produce crops. So, in human life, we naturally face dry and rainy seasons. The implication of that is that, we are constantly engaged in transition either from dry to rainy season or from rainy season to dry season. Also during economic recession, people face a lot of dry weather financial effects. The challenge is that when we have faced a long time of dry season in life, we become engrossed in the negative weather to the extent that “good news of rain” becomes strange.

God is the One that balances our weather situations, whether rainy or drought. No matter the weather situation to you financially or materially, there is a prophetic declaration that “YOUR RAINY SEASON HAS COME.” There is the sound of the ABUNDANCE OF RAIN. God makes THE RAIN to fall on those who desire and ask. Zechariah 10:1 “ASK YE of the LORD RAIN in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to EVERY ONE GRASS IN THE FIELD.” God’s promises of rain is irrevocable. For Elijah, the sound of abundance of rain or the prophetic promise of rain is not enough. The promise must be converted to real torrential rain. So Elijah went on Mount Carmel to engage in intercession for the manifestation of his expectation of torrential rain. He stood in God’s presence interceding and incubating what God promised. This is a principle for intercessory prayer; that we remain in God’s presence praying for the manifestation of what God promised. We are to pray the PROMISES OF GOD. So in between our EXPECTATION and MANIFESTATION is, SCRIPTURAL INTERCESSION AND INCUBATION. Isaiah 66:8 “Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to BRING FORTH in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? FOR AS SOON AS ZION TRAVAILED, SHE BROUGHT FORTH HER CHILDREN.”


God has promised to release His rain. We must spend time to BIRTH what God has promised. The dry financial season of your life has ended. God’s rainy season is here for your appropriation. No more dry season spiritually, financially and materially. It is exhilarating how God takes His people from one extreme drought to extreme abundance. God makes rain to fall in the DRY SEASON OF LIFE. All of a sudden, the people who have gone through extreme drought are now experiencing overwhelming abundance. Get ready for GOD’S RAINY SEASON as you convert the promise of God’s rain into His real torrential rain. In JESUS Name, you are moving forward from every financial, business, career drought, to OVERWHELMING ABUNDANCE. The LORD takes us from negative extremes to positive extremes. Yesterday, Joseph was in prison, today he becomes the Prime Minister and Governor of the whole land of Egypt. All of a sudden, the Israelites who were slaves for hundred of years in Egypt were set free completely after crossing the Red Sea. There is an intervention of God in your life NOW that will change your life completely. Get ready for the RAIN that will cause you to REIGN. Your Profile is changing positively. The RAIN of the LORD is here. Go on swimming in the RAIN OF THE LORD, You will remain fresh, nourished, blossom and prosper.

PRAYER: Father God, I thank You for Your outpouring. Today, I ask for Your torrential rain over every area of my life. I come against the Spirit of drought in the Name of JESUS. I receive God’s OVERWHELMING RAIN in the Mighty Name of JESUS. Dry season and drought are gone. I live in God’s rainy season in JESUS HOLY NAME.
