The waters have broken - come and drink

In August 2012 we posted on the blog, “Let the spiritual midwives say ‘yes and amen – you can do this’, catch the second wind of the Holy Spirit, bear down and Pray Until Something Happens” This was in response to a range of maternity, baby dreams and words given by the Father to a range of people between 1 May 2011 and 17 March 2012. 

Another recent dream with two unrelated and yet prophetically connected baby birth events has been followed with this word for the church being laid on Elizabeth’s heart.
“I sense God is saying I am birthing the impossible things. Run with it. Do not hold back. Nothing can stop the birth of the new thing I am doing. Heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead, set the captives free. The time is now. Do not be afraid. I am with you. The ground is prepared. Now is the time for harvest."

A second word we’ve had repeated recently is, “it’s time to strike the rock” (Steve Wadey, summer 2013 and Stephane' November 2013). After prayer and contemplation on this by the Leadership team, there is a sense that this is linked to John’s gospel chapters 7-9 and the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23).
The procession carried water from the pool of Siloam, circled the temple, then poured out the water - representing sins on the altar. This was repeated 7 times. On the final day of the feast the women would light the temple lamps which filled the temple with great brightness.

John 7 (37-38)  Jesus says on the final day of the feast If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink - whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from them (Holy spirit). (River of life scriptures John7:37-39, Ezekiel 47:9 and Isaiah 55: 1-2)

All of this leads to Christ Jesus. HE is our rock and from HIM living waters flow. When HE is lifted up (praised, blessed, adored) we start to dip our cups into the living water.  "If ANYONE is thirsty - come and drink"
I sense to strike the rock means we must not hold back:
  • Don’t hold back in lifting Jesus higher
  • Don’t hold back in pursuit of God and His Holy Spirit
  • Don’t hold back in radical worship
  • Don’t hold back in believing for salvation and healing
  • Don’t hold back in praying
  • Don’t hold back in taking the ground and streets
  • Don’t hold back in prophesying
  • Don’t hold back in generosity
  • The well is open *** The waters have broken *** Let era of joy burst forth with dancing, praise and worship *** The waters that were once bitter are now sweet!

The photographs above were taken on a prayer walk around Wells Park (SE London) in autumn 2012. I believe they are relevant to us as FHCC meets near the park and that the underground streams that feed 5 wells have their source in the park. 

The "wells" were known to have healing properties but the water turned bitter in the early 1900's and the wells were sealed. The vision to see the wells restored and the water sweet again has been laid on various peoples hearts - the walk in 2012 saw three generations of this vision coming together to pray. 

As we entered the play park area and tried to jump on the fountain triggers - nothing happened - we were praying again and a child ran onto the pads and the fountains "burst forth". I believe that we shall see this in the Spiritual.

Some links to previous posts that relate to this one:
  1. Birth: PUSH (pray until something happens)
  2. Solid rock: On solid rock we stand
  3. Wells 1: Open up the house for worship
  4. Wells 2:  In the beginning
  5. Honey: The honey is ready (taste & see that the LORD is good)
I am so very very excited about this and if you want to know Jesus and follow Him please feel free to email the address at the bottom of the page.

Blessings with love
