The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts.
- Hag 2:9
This is a time of great revival and a move of power like we have not been exposed to since the days of the book of Acts. Even the saints of old are waiting for this final move of God upon this Earth.
There have been great revivals and different moves of the spirit of God throughout the generations, from the time of Christ to this moment; however, none will emulate the season we are about to move into.
The Lord is coming back for a spotless bride, one that has extra oil to meet the groom with lamps burning bright. Extra oil, this is the key not only anointed and burning bright, but an extra or double portion to accomplish these great works of the Holy Spirit.
The state of the body at this point in time is in a crippled condition, held down and bound. I believe the Holy Spirit is pouring out of Himself one last time; a river of life so great that the power and fear of God will be acknowledged across the face of this Earth.
There will be those virgins who will ask, seek and knock to receive this extra oil or double portion. (Job 29:6: When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil).
Those who walk in the churned cream that has risen to the top, flavored with salt; in other words those who walk in the richness of the word, the rock will pour out rivers of oil.
Could this be as the rock that Moses struck and water came forth to give life to a sea of people; the oil will pour out a river of life from the rock. This will be a result of washing our steps in revelation of Jesus, inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Remember Jesus said, "Ye are the salt of the world." This could only mean the cream becomes flavored when Jesus is revealed as life received in our life. Just as Peter said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Jesus replies, "You're no longer Simon (a reed, unstable in its surroundings, easily influenced) now you're Peter, (a rock, not moved by your surroundings or the influences around you)."
(Job 8:7: Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase)
Of course, this move of God will come with a price for those who desire to be used in such a manner.
