For many years now I have been hearing God’s voice speak into my and my family’s daily life, especially when I study His word, write in my prayer journal, and worship at His feet. But this Shabbat as I was writing the summary of this week’s Bible studies in my prayer journal, I was struck by how consistently the Bible studies have been applicable to Shavuot, which is tomorrow. I was especially struck by this in light of the prophecy from 1 Sam 12 in Friday’s bible study concerning Shavout (the rain came at the wheat harvest, and the people’s eyes were opened to their sin). So as I glanced back through the week’s studies, as I was preparing notes, the pictures leapt out at me, and this is what I saw:
Speak, LORD, for Your servant hears. 1 Sam 3:9.
Dagon (idolatry) fallen before the LORD. 1 Sam 5:4.
Thus far the LORD has helped us. 1 Sam 7:12. (The Holy Spirit is the Helper.)
The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and become another man. 1 Sam 10:6.
I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes. Eze 36:27.
The LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, for it has pleased the LORD to make you a people for Himself. 1 Sam 12:22.
At the same time, I am fairly certain I heard YHVH say:
A great revival of the rain of the Holy Spirit is coming, beginning this Shavuot. All who have ears to hear, no matter where they are at at the moment, will hear; their idolatry will fall before YHVH, for YHVH will be their Helper. The Spirit of YHVH will come upon them and their hearts will be transformed to serve Him with a whole heart and to walk in all His ways. YHVH will do this for His great name! (YHVH – The hand, Behold! The nail, Behold!) For He has made His people for Himself, and it will NOT be said of them, that they will all fall away from Him into judgment, for He was too weak to open their eyes, but it will be said of them that YHVH did not forsake them, but made them a people for Himself!
