The Holy Spirit has been showing me that August is going to be a month of innumerous testimonies. There are many believers who are losing hope because they have been contending for things in their lives for such a long time, but it seems as if the heavens are brass. We have been hearing the word “breakthrough” for so long that it is beginning to sound like another buzzword.
For those of you who are saying, “It can’t get any worse,” it is not going to get any worse. After you have hit rock bottom, there is only way to go and that is up. August is going to be a month of extreme testimonies. This is what the Lord is showing me.
The Lord is connecting believers that are going to fuel one another’s anointing. They will walk in unity rather than competition. As Iron sharpens iron, they will sharpen one another. Together they will advance in one accord, break through and repossess the territory the enemy has stolen.
It will be like it was with Mary and her cousin Elizabeth. In the book of Luke, God sent the angel Gabriel to a virgin named Mary to tell her that she was going to conceive and give birth to a son, and she was to call him Jesus. At first Mary questioned the angel asking, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”
Gabriel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, the Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. With God nothing will be impossible”.
He also told her that her cousin Elizabeth who was barren was also going to conceive in her old age. Mary did not doubt what the angel had told her, but she simply replied, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”
After Mary had become pregnant, she met with Elizabeth. As soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby (John) leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Last year, the Lord gave me a word for a friend of mine. I saw a picture of her with three other ministers who had just spoken at a prophetic conference. He showed me a mat of firecrackers. As the fuse was lit on the first one, it started a chain reaction, igniting all the others after it. The Lord said, “These are those whom I have called to ignite the weary. The Holy Spirit will come upon them and the power of the Most High will overshadow them.”
The Lord is also showing me those who have faced fierce battles during the past few years. Satan has tried to sift them as wheat but they are going to come back stronger and strengthen their family and friends. Some of them feel as if they are in a stupor because they have become so battle weary. The enemy may have tried to neutralize them, but they’re going to rise up as the Lord gives them dunamis strength (power, ability) to endure.
The Lord is going to bring healing and quicken the bodies of many who have been battling infirmity. They will have testimonies that will astound others. They will become a sign and a wonder and people will witness and acknowledge the truth that “with God nothing is impossible”.
As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17)
For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. (Luke 1:37-38)
And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:41)
