Meanwhile… in the Atlantic Tropical Hurricane Season (not!) the season is about to officially end on Nov 30. Here is the reason given for the season being so quiet…
The basic result was to increase west wind shear across the Caribbean Sea and southwest tropical Atlantic and also to cause anomalous sinking motion across the same area. Neither favored tropical cyclone development.
The combination of these two ingredients made for many atmospheric snares for the tropical cyclones that did develop and hence they were for the most part very short-lived. This combination also routinely formed snares that prevented tropical cyclone formation on many days during the peak of hurricane season. – Weather.com
One of the things I like about myself is that I have a memory like an elephant. So when I saw “wind shear” given as a reason, I remembered that it was the same reason why the storm stopped last year too! Hurricane Gustav was simply chopped off!!
Holy Spirit outpouring begins in places!
Read this and get ready 🙂
On November 11, during a 9:00am class of first-year students, led by Allen Hood and Wes Hall at International House of Prayer University (IHOPU), the Spirit moved in their midst with physical healings, deliverance, and a spirit of joy. That class, on November 11, continued for more than 15 hours. The word spread quickly, and over 2,000 people spontaneously gathered in the auditorium from all over the Kansas City area, as deliverance and physical healings increased. The meeting continued well past midnight. Recognizing that the Spirit was moving, the leadership of IHOPU canceled all classes for the next few days so that we could gather to receive all that the Spirit wanted to do.
This is just the beginning. On this last weekend I heard of another prayer center, this time in South Africa in the Eastern Cape which is seeing such success that they are considering closing the bible college and moving the prayer center in there! Why at prayer centers?? Because the hunger is there…
“The greatest outpouring, the greatest anointing of God’s power ever known, is coming upon us. Past revivals will seem as nothing when Pentecost breaks upon the entire Church.” – Reinhard Bonnke
I wrote about my expectation for this outpouring here: Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high and How long is “a little more than a year” because THAT is when His Spirit will be poured out and Let the fire of God come down on all nations – God’s words
The key bible verses is/are this (although the same can be found in the book of Joel and others)…
Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is valued as a forest.
Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation) will abide in the fruitful field. And the effect of righteousness will be peace [internal and external], and the result of righteousness will be quietness and confident trust forever. My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. – Is 32:15-18
From my journal…
** It was 50 days from Exodus to Sinai where the law was given and people could not come near to God’s holy mountain without dying. Fire burned the mountain. It was 50 days from the cross to Pentecost, where fire fell and it brought life and renewal and reconciliation to God. **
I wrote this in my journal…
If fire was to fall in 50 days, then His Fire will fall on on Tuesday 10th? So there may be 3 days to go to His Fire falling.
- Sept 20th – Received the word about fire falling, and clearly felt it would occur in days (not weeks or months).
- Nov 7 – Today is 47 days (10 days in Sept, 30 days in Oct, 7 days in Nov)
- Nov 10th is 50 days after I received the word that would happen in days
And so on the 11th I wondered how I had got it wrong… until finding out that it HAD fallen, but just elsewhere, not where I am.
Local food prices continue to decline in SA
Isn’t this wonderful? In a country with 25% unemployent and 40% poverty, lower food prices will certainly reduce daily tension in the lives of parents and children.
Thank You Jesus Christ for blessing us and for what you are about to do.
