How to Know When the Anointing is Coming

How to Know When the Anointing is Coming

  1. “The glory of Lebanon will be given” (Isa 35:2). The atmosphere changes.  The seasons begin to change.  The old season starts to shift into the new season.  The glory of Lebanon is the cedar trees.  Benny Hinn grew up in Jaffa, Israel, close to Tel Aviv and the Lebanese border.  At a certain time of the year, the wind would shift directions, and the sweet-smelling scent of the cedar trees in Lebanon would blow southward and fill the air with the pleasant aroma.  That’s when they knew that the new season was soon approaching.
  1. “The excellency of Carmel and Sharon” (Isa 35:2). Speaks of the Word – fresh food that nourishes, refreshes and rejuvenates.  Also, the harvest being gathered.  Sharon was an extremely fertile plain known for its agriculture.  Carmel is a mountain range and town north of the Plains of Sharon, and the meaning of Carmel is “fruit garden or orchard”.

The flowers of Sharon, and in particular, the Rose of Sharon, were beautiful.  The flowers speak of new life and blossoming out.  God turns our desert and wasteland situations around, and brings fruitfulness.  The flowers speak of joy and singing, and God’s glorious beauty seen in our lives.  Isaiah 35:1-2a says, “The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing.”

Isaiah 61:3 “To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.”

  1. Restoration comes suddenly. In some cases, overnight.

Joel 2:22-26

22 Be not afraid … for the open pastures are becoming green.  The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.

23 Be glad, O people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness.  He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.

24 The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.

25 I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten- the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm- my great army that I sent among you.

26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.

  1. You shall see the Glory of the Lord (Isa 35:2).
  1. Miracles will begin to happen. “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.  Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing” (Isa 35:5-6).
  1. Dragons are driven away from your life. Only a strong River of God (Anointing) can drive the dragons off your grass (your property, your life).  Isaiah 35:7 “And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.”  Dragons symbolize demonic strongholds that are very difficult to get rid of.  Homosexuality is the strongest dragon to cast off, but the River of God (Anointing) is stronger.
  1. Error or sin will be corrected. Isaiah 35:8 “A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.  The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for others.  Whoever walks the road, although a fool, shall not go astray.”

Dream: Seasons Are About To Change

Dream:  Seasons Are About To Change

I received this dream on the same night that Benny Hinn spoke on seasons changing.

In October of 2003, I attended a Benny Hinn crusade in Fresno, California. The Holy Spirit ministered to deep areas in my life.

The evening of October 16, 2003, after the service was over and I returned to my hotel, during the night the Lord gave me a prophetic dream concerning a change of seasons that’s coming. This spoke personally to situations in my life, and I believe that this dream was a word for many in the Corporate Body of Christ.

Perhaps this prophetic dream may speak to some situation in your life in which you are believing to see God bring about a breakthrough.

I shared this dream with a friend of mine, and it was a confirmation of what the Lord had been speaking to my friend’s life.  Their situation was different, but God kept on saying to them: “New Season”.

Scene 1: Cloudy. Sky looks bleak. A storm has just passed. Clarity is impaired.

Scene 2: Clouds begin to dissipate as Sunshine peeks through. Eventually the clouds fade away, and there is full sunshine and clear blue skies.

Scene 3: Spring time. New blossoming takes place. Gentle rains.

You may be in a cloudy season right now in your life. Things may look bleak. But there is hope and assurance that this season will be short-lived, and the sun will come out.

You will not remain in your cloudy situation. God is bringing you out. Much sunshine is in store.

Where there was once confusion and difficulty in hearing God’s Voice and seeing in the Spirit with clarity, the clouds shall be parted and you will be able to see and hear clearly. The fog shall clear up.

Where there was sadness, mourning and depression—there shall be gladness and rejoicing. You shall again dance and play your tambourine with joy, like you did in your youth.

Where there was a heavy burden of stress and anxiety, the load will lift and lighten. The enemy of your soul tried to take you out, but God stepped in. The Lord breathed fresh life into those dry bones and gave the command, saying: “Hear the Word of the Lord, O dry bones, and live!”  And revivification came.

Great fruitfulness and productivity is in store. Those delayed promises you are believing God for shall be answered and fulfilled. Abundance and blessings shall be yours. You shall blossom out and flourish. Complete health and healing shall be yours. You shall be lush and green like the tree. The gentle rains of the Glory of God shall descend upon your life, and the Spirit of God will bring refreshment and rejuvenation. A greater anointing is coming.

Spring is coming to your life. A resurrection of old, and dead, dreams shall take place. New life, and double restoration is coming. You shall possess your promised land. You shall have tremendous joy.

God has been working in your life so that you would produce good fruit (the fruit of the Spirit). The Lord has been at work ripening good fruit in you so that one day you would be able to feed others, and be used of God to harvest lost souls. God turned the past pain around in your life so that the day would come when you would be able to help others and minister God’s healing.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalms 30:5). Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). The Living Bible words it this way: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true at last, there is life and joy.”

The season has shifted. You have come out of your winter season and have entered into a new season of Springtime, where there will be blossoming, fruitfulness and growth. The promises of the Lord are coming to pass in your life. You will rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory! You will receive a double portion anointing, and double portion blessings and prosperity as your inheritance!

God bless you and keep you.
