"Then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine, and olive oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied." - Deuteronomy 11:14-15 Many of us have recently undergone an intense time with a lot of warfare and opposition. However, even amidst the veryopposition we may have experienced, the Lord was strengthening us. We will be found coming up out of our wilderness season, leaning on our Beloved (see Song of Songs 8:5). His desire during that time was to prepare and establish us for the new oil and abundance that He is getting ready to pour out. PREPARED FOR THE NEW The Lord does not waste our pain. Through the stretching and trials we have endured, we have been made stronger. We are now prepared for the "new" that He is ready to entrust us with. Mark 2:22 says that, "No one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins." We are becoming new wineskins in this very hour in order that we may be able to contain the new, fresh wine and steward the increase well."Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life" - Proverbs 13:12. The Lord is reviving weary hearts back to life, and He is healing hope deferred. The hardness of the previous season has lifted, and we entering into a time of singing and rejoicing! "See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, My darling; My beautiful one, come with Me" - Song of Songs 2:11-13. The Lord sends rains that will wash away the pain, weariness, and heartache from the previous seasons that you've experienced."You gave abundant showers, O God; You refreshed Your weary inheritance. Your people settled in it, and from Your bounty, God, You provided for the poor" - Psalm 68:9-10."Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard." - Isaiah 58:8 Many have continued to stand and contend for God's promises even in the midst of great, personal pain and misunderstanding. "Lift your eyes, O weary ones, for your redemption draws near" - Luke 21:28b. Not for a moment has the Lord left your side or forsaken you. The Lord is our burden bearer, and even now, He is breaking chains that have sought to keep us bound. Our Father is removing those heavy burdens that have weighed down His children. Be encouraged! Our Savior has seen every tear that you have ever cried, and He is rushing on the scene like a mighty warrior."Yahweh is a warrior, Yahweh is His Name" Exodus 15:3. The Lord is strong and mighty in battle. He is bringing His beloved Bride into a season of rest, peace, and great refreshing. For where you were previously not able to let down because of the consistent battle, now you will be able to rest and drink deeply of the Lord's abundant peace. He, Himself, is fighting for you! REFINED BY FIRE, REFRESHED BY RAINS You have come through the fire of the last season, forged and refined like the gold, and you are about ready to see and experience the Lord's goodness like never before! What He is about ready to release in your life will bring you such joy and restoration that you will say, "How could I have doubted the Lord's great goodness and love for me, even for a moment?" After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before (see Job 42:10)."Those who have sown in tears are about to reap much joy" - Psalm 126:5. "And Elijah said to Ahab, 'Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain'" - 1 Kings 18:41. The Lord is sending the sweet, rains of abundance. Listen closely, do you hear it?

Psalm 18:28-29 says, “For You will light my lamp; the Lord My God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop; by my God I can leap over a wall.” Not only will you leap over a wall, but you will receive supernatural strength, leap over every obstacle, and position yourself to go through the opening door that God has for you. Fear not the enemies on the other side of this gate. For you will leap through your new point of entry and tread upon the enemy’s head. REPLACE YOUR PAST WITH JOY! You must find your place of “departure.” There are some things you NEED TO LEAVE BEHIND as you depart one phase or season, you will also see your place to enter. May He accelerate time for you. Develop new strength to run the race ahead. Seek Him like never before, and all things will be added to you. Leap forward and you will find yourself moving in the perfect will of God! Remove any mask of sadness and turn your sorrow to laughter. In the land of New Beginnings, you must remove the masks and veils that have formed in the past season so you can now form your “true” identity for the future. NEW IDENTITY AND AUTHORITY Isaiah 41:15 ("Behold, I will make you to be a new, sharp, threshing instrument which has teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small, and shall make the hills like chaff") has become a key word for you. There is a new identity and authority for you in the invisible world. This will allow you to display the wisdom of God to the powers and principalities that have blocked you in past seasons. You will be filled with joy. The Lord is renewing your strength. May the power of barrenness break. May you know and walk in the advantage of light over darkness, and may light and revelation break the power of darkness around you. Shout, “My Fear shall Laugh!” Celebrate! Declare deliverance from any deep hidden grief. Ask the Lord for joy and laughter to arise in your emotions. Declare your emotions are healed and restored. One of the best verses to shout out loud is, "The Lord will make my feet like hinds' feet." You should decree that you will skip and jump on the mountains of the circumstances in your life. You should decree that your fortunes are increasing and becoming strong. As joy increases you are propelled into a season of deliverance. A TIME FOR HEALING This is a time for transformation in the area of healing. Begin to believe for God to put you in touch with people that need healing--both physical and emotional. Decree healing in their bodies and lives! Your true identity should begin to be reflected . There is an identity for you in the invisible world that gives you authority. Guard yourself from idolatry. Begin to change your wardrobe--both spiritually and physically! The Lord made the body and relates His Body to our body. DECLARATIONS: 1. Declare that any root of depression and despair break. 2. Bind any confused communication or miscommunication. Declare that your words and expressions will be clear. 3. Ask the Lord to remove your worry and anxiety over supply. Declare that you will find your supply in “hidden” dimensions. 4. Declare anything that is robbing your joy will be detected and removed. Wait for the Lord’s saving grace to be released in a new way and divine judgment to work against your enemies. (Read Exodus 23 and Isaiah 40.) ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
