The Head of Elijah between his Knees

02.05.2019, Daniel Glimm


As we are in the time of counting the sheaves, which is preparing us for Shavuot's feast day at the time of Pentecost season, let us go into a revelation the Lord has given me with regard to the window of time of Shavuot/Pentecost (see Leviticus 23:15-17.22 i.c.w. Acts 2:1-4).
 
Leviticus 23:15-17.22:
15 “ ‘From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks.
16 Count off fifty days up to the day after the seventh Sabbath, and then present an offering of new grain to the Lord.
17 From wherever you live, bring two loaves made of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour, baked with yeast, as a wave offering of firstfruits to the Lord. …
22 “ ‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the Lord your God.’ ”
 
Acts 2:1-4:
1 When the day of Pentecost (note: Shavuot- feast of weeks) came, they were all together in one place.
2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
 
King Ahab and Elijah and The Reason of a Drought

In connection with the time of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit led me to 1 Kings 17-18 and referred to the prophet Elijah, who faced King Ahab, the seventh king of Israel in the drought that Elijah had prophesied on behalf of God (see 1 Kings 17:1).

1 Kings 17:1:
1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe1 in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”

When we are in periods of dryness caused by God, it is important to the Heavenly Father to reveal the power of His Lamb who was slain. At the same time, it is important for Him to show us to which extent, He has already established His divine order in us by His Holy Spirit. This is equivalent to an open riverbed in a dry period.
 
So it was no coincidence that John the Baptist was placed in the desert at the Jordan, the main river of Israel (note: means “the descendant or rich in rapids”) and prophesied there (see John 1:23-29).
 
John 1:23-29:
23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet (see Isaiah 40:3), “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’ ”…
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
 
The Great Threshing Sledge and God's Whirlwind

A river with its banks and structure and its depth only becomes apparent to the human eye when there is a persistent dry period. This principle should encourage us and even reveal to us that even though we might feel that people are taking advantage of us by ‘walking on/over or crossing us’, we are not a small worm, but a great threshing sledge that works with the high whirlwind of God who is the Holy Spirit (see Isaiah 41:14-16 i.c.w. Acts 2:1-2)!

Isaiah 41:14-16:
14 Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear, for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.
16 You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up, and a gale will blow them away. But you will rejoice in the Lord and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

Acts 2:1-2:
1 When the day of Pentecost (note: Shavuot – feast of weeks) came, they were all together in one place.
2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

The Strong Teeth of the Bride

God has given us strong teeth in order to be a “weapon”. It is about the true love, unity and purity of the saints in the Bride of Christ by fellowship in the Word of God (see Song of Songs 4:2 i.c.w. Ephesians 5:25-27).
 
Song of Songs 4:2:
2 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone.
 
Ephesians 5:25-27:
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.
 
All Things Must Serve Saints for the Best!

To come back to King Ahab and Elijah, I would like to speak positively about the seventh King of Israel in this message, even though he cooperated with Jezebel in his time and allowed her to rule over him.
 
The letter to the Romans reveals to us that all things must serve for good to those who love God (see Romans 8:28).

Romans 8:28:
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Even if there were false prophets in the time of Ahab who rebelled against the true prophets of God, we can take from this whole event or the confrontation by the “Spirit of Elijah” a strategy for this time, which I will explain later (see 1 Kings 18:18-19 i.c.w. Revelation 2:20).

1 Kings 18:18-19:
18 “I have not made trouble for Israel,” Elijah replied. “But you and your father’s family have. You have abandoned the Lord’s commands and have followed the Baals.
19 Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

Revelation 2:20:
20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.
 
The Drought Announced by the Prophet Elijah – The Dew and the Rain
 
Due to the decree of the prophet Elijah, there was a three-and-a-half-year drought in Israel, in which there was neither dew nor rain until God allowed Elijah on his behalf to open heaven again to end this drought in Israel (see 1 Kings 17:1 i.c.w. Luke 4:25).
 
1 Kings 17:1:
1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”
 
Luke 4:25:
25 I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land.
 
In the prophetic context, this drought means that there was little revelation and less sound teaching related to God's manifestation among His people. The reason is that dew is associated with the message of revelation and the manifestation of God in the atmosphere. Rain, on the other hand, is related to sound doctrine (see Deuteronomy 32:2).
 
Deuteronomy 32:2:
2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
 
The Drought and God's Order
 
When God, as mentioned before, comes upon His people with a period of drought, He reveals His order. He shows us how much of His Word we do already carry within us and to what extent we would have established His order in our hearts.
 
If we face challenges and don't know how to deal with it and don't receive a word of revelation in that situation, then we should look at what the Holy Spirit has already structured as divine order in us, so that we apply the truth of God in our lives which has been established. Periods of drought are destined by God to make us strong and secure in Him and to show us what fruits of the Spirit we are already bringing forth (see James 1:2-4 i.c.w. Jeremiah 17:8).
 
James 1:2-4:
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
 
Jeremiah 17:8:
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
 
It is Jesus Christ who is just in phases of challenge, as the power that makes us strong (see 2 Corinthians 12:10).
 
2 Corinthians 12:10:
10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
 
The Relocation or Change of Structure
 
Where we feel like a dry riverbed and say to God: “We cannot do anything God!”, He says to us: “You are such a wonderful riverbed. You have such beautiful, high river banks.” By this statement He wants to let us know that we are able to carry His deep revelations coming from His heights.
 
Elijah, too, was commissioned by God to go to a brook in the time of the drought, which later dried up, so that the condition or structure of the brook released the Word of God in order to let him move to another structure (note: to the sea – to Zarephath near Sidon=> lies on the Mediterranean Sea), which still carried water (note: salt water) even in spite of the drought (see 1 Kings 17:2-3.7-9a).
 
1 Kings 17:2-3.7-9a:
2 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: 3 “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. …
7 Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land.
8 Then the word of the Lord came to him:
9a “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there …
 
Elijah had not moved only to another location, but also to a different body of water which carried a new kind of water. He went from the brook to the sea and from sweet water to salt water, which is related to the message of holiness, the depths and the full measure of God (see Isaiah 40:12a i.c.w. Mark 9:49-50; Colossians 4:6).
 
Isaiah 40:12a:
12 Who has measured the waters (note: sea) in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
 
Mark 9:49-50:
49 Everyone will be salted with fire.
50 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”
 
Colossians 4:6:
6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
 
The relocation of Elijah means that he tasted something different than the things he had received from God before.
 
The Sweet and the Salty, The Spirit of Elijah and the Resurrected Sons
 
Sweetness is associated with revelation (see 1 Samuel 14:29) and salt is associated with spice, representing holiness and truth (see Mark 9:49-50 i.c.w. Colossians 4:6).
 
Elijah got equipped in his spirit at the Mediterranean Sea in order to enter into a confrontation on Mount Carmel with the false prophets of Baal and Aschera. There God answered him with fire (see 1 Kings 18:19-40).
 
The “salt water” also even made Elijah so bold to ask a widow who was also a mother, during the drought to give him food and water first (see 1 Kings 17:10, 13).
 
1 Kings 17:10.13:
10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” …
13 Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son.
 
Furthermore, Elijah pointed out to the widow with his statement that if she first invested into his prophetic anointing, she would experience supernatural care or rather multiplication in her life. This would comfort her in all of her loss (note: she lost her husband) and during the time of drought (see Matthew 10:41).
 
Matthew 10:41:
41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward.
 
The Spirit of Elijah resurrects “dead sons” in order to revive the relationship with their fathers and vice versa (see 1 Kings 17:17.19-22 i.c.w. Malachi 4:5-6).
 
1 Kings 17:17.19-22:
17 Some time later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing. …
19 “Give me your son,” Elijah replied. He took him from her arms, carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his bed.
20 Then he cried out to the Lord, “Lord my God, have you brought tragedy even on this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?”
21 Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried out to the Lord, “Lord my God, let this boy’s life return to him!”
22 The Lord heard Elijah’s cry, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived.
 
Malachi 4:5-6:
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
 
The Confrontation of Elijah on Mount Carmel and the Feast of Shavuot
 
Through the confrontation of Elijah on Mount Carmel (note: means “fruit garden”) with the false prophets, the Spirit of the Lord made it clear to me that before He increases with His presence on earth to finish a long period of spiritual drought, He brings about, by prophetic ministers in His body, a holy confrontation.
 
This creates a unified and truthful heart attitude within the hearts of the people of God in order to worship Him and remove doubt. It is a confrontation of love for truth that leads to a unified setup of the hearts of the sons of God to worship the Heavenly Father (see 1 Kings 18:21.30-39).
 
1 Kings 18:21.30-39:
21 Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing. …
30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down.
31 Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.”
32 With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs of seed.
33 He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”
34 “Do it again,” he said, and they did it again. “Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time.
35 The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.
36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.
37 Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.
39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord – he is God! The Lord – he is God!”
 
Through this confrontation, God wanted to reveal the good and bad fruits in the midst of the fruit garden. This confrontation is comparable to the statement in Matthew 13:39-43, where Jesus Christ said the following:
 
“… and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.
The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.
They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
 
The Realm of Confrontation in the Midst of the Fruit Garden
 
Elija created a realm for confrontation in the middle of the fruit garden. This is required, because if it is not done this way, we can fall out of our authority or out of the relationship we have with God. It was Adam who didn't forbid the serpent to seduce Eve in the garden of Eden, but it was God's command to Adam to plant and guard the garden (see Genesis 2:15).
 
Genesis 2:15:
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
This means that as God's people we must not be afraid of the old serpent, but must be willing to confront it where it appears. If we do this, the heavens will work with us for the cause of God! This is essential to own or establish a realm carrying a pure and true relationship to the Heavenly Father.
 
Wavering is Removed by the Established Order of God and His Truth!
 
In places where the people of God are limping in the midst of their fruit garden realm, it is essential to confront them with their true identity in Jesus Christ in a similar way as Elijah did. Elijah decided to do it by raising up the twelve stones of the sons of Israel and thus showing their united identity as Israelites.
 
This means that if, for example, a saint in the body of Christ is assigned to the tribe of Gad, he cannot seek to belong to the tribe of Judah. Such doings would bring an imbalance into the body of Christ. Everyone must be aware of his God-determined position or character in the body and not only accept it but also remain therein.
 
Persons in authority must be positioned in the right areas and if they are (note: humble leaders), peace and freedom prevails.
 
If we know who we really are in Jesus Christ and know our field of authority, then we will respect our boundaries, which means that we protect our field of responsibility and don't violate the field of our neighbor. This means that we have authority over any evil influence that wants to enter our field of authority in order to expel it.
 
This is exactly what Elijah did. He asked the people of Israel the question to whom they wanted to belong and referred to their wavering spiritual condition.
 
In the midst of false sacrifice (note: untrue worship), Elijah created with a true and undivided heart and his readiness to sacrifice a place of worship by raising up the altar out of twelve stones. These stones represented the sons of Jacob and the tribes of Israel (see 1 Kings 18:30-32).
 
God responded to this established order on earth with fire by striking “a lightning bolt” on the altar of Israel in the midst of this fruit garden (see 1 Kings 18:38).
 
1 Kings 18:38:
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.
 
The Baptism of Fire, The Established Divine Justice opens the Way for a Great Outpouring!
 
This means that it was a baptism with fire that produced a two-edged movement of the Word of God according to Hebrews 4:12 and a short time later drew attention to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the same mountain (see 1 Kings 18:38-41 i.c.w. Luke 3:16).
 
1 Kings 18:38-41:
38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.
39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!”
40 Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.
41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.”
 
Luke 3:16:
16 John answered them all, “I baptize you with2 water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
 
This two-edged movement of the Word of God established justice and activated a new movement of authority. The reason is because Elijah heard of the Father's brotherly movement by the sound of revelation (note: The name “Ahab” means “brother of the Father”; see Matthew 12:50 i.c.w. John 12:45; John 14:9) and was instructed to go higher in order to come later down again with the outpouring from the Father's hand.
 
His following of God’s instructions would bring people to the place of decision, either to continue on their path of false prophetic voices or to follow the path of the testimony of Jesus (note: true prophecy; see 1.Kings 18:41-46i.c.w. Revelation 2:20; Revelation 19:10e).
 
1 Kings 18:41-46:
41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.”
42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.
43 “Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked. “There is nothing there,” he said. Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.”
44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.” So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”
45 Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel.
46 The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.
 
Revelation 2:20:
20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.
 
Revelation 19:10e:
… 10e for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
 
The Outpouring of God Needs a Birth!
 
While Elijah heard the supernatural outpouring with his ears which was connected with the end of the period of drought, he knew that it first required a governmental movement. This “movement of authority” would obey the prophetic command of God, represented by king Ahab, as he had governmental authority over Israel at that time.
 
King Ahab as the seventh king of Israel represents in this time people in government authority who are aware of their position as brothers/sons in Christ and of their relationship with the Father.
 
They don't live according to their will, but according to the will of God, by following His instruction from the prophet who is assigned to them. They go to a higher place, which means the fellowship with God, the Father, similarly as Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu and the seventy elders of the people of Israel did when they went on mount Sinai to eat in God’s presence (see 1 Kings 18:41 i.c.w. Exodus 24:9-11).
 
1 Kings 18:41:
41 And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.”
 
Exodus 24:9-11:
9 Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up
10 and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of lapis lazuli, as bright blue as the sky.
11 But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites; they saw God, and they ate and drank.
 
This means for us, that when it comes to the great outpouring of the Spirit of God on earth, as the Lord has promised through the prophets (see Isaiah 11:9 i.c.w. Habakkuk 2,14), we first of all need people in leadership positions who go to a higher spiritual place, just as the disciples gathered in Jerusalem in the upper room at Shavuot/Pentecost in accordance to the word of Jesus Christ (see Luke 24:49 i.c.w. Acts 1:13).
 
Luke 24:49:
49 I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
 
Acts 1:13:
13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James.
 
The Birth Position of the Prophets and of Elijah
 
While this is happening, the prophets in the body of Christ are in a birth position of prayer on a “lower level” associated with humility, which is the pioneer level as well as the level of the new generation to create a new alignment of time which carries acceleration (see 2 Peter 3:11-12a).
 
2 Peter 3:11-12a:
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming.
 
Elijah was aware that there would be a supernatural acceleration of time, which he revealed through his birth state.
 
Personally, I am convinced that Elijah had faith to accelerate the times of God through his prayer and positioning on mount Carmel by connecting them supernaturally through the power of faith.
As Elijah was on a lower level of the mountain (note: the level of spiritual birth for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit) and brought his head between his knees and sent his servant seven times to the top of the mountain (note: the level of glory), Ahab, the seventh king of Israel, was looking for the manifestation of the Father's hand (see 1 Kings 18:42-44).
 
1 Kings 18:42-44:
42 So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.
43 “Go and look toward the sea,” he told his servant. And he went up and looked. “There is nothing there,” he said. Seven times Elijah said, “Go back.”
44 The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.” So Elijah said, “Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”
Considering the position of Elijah on mount Carmel, his spiritual birth state and his body (note: head, knees and feet) and likewise dividing the mountain into the three biblical feasts of the year determined by God according to Exodus 23:14-17, which are:
  1. Passover/the victory of Jesus Christ on the Cross, celebrated in the first biblical month of “Aviv/Nisan” (note: Elijah's feet; the foot of mount Carmel),
  2. Shavuot/Pentecost, celebrated in the third biblical month of “Sivan” (note: Elijah's knees; Elijah's place of prayer on mount Carmel) and
  3. Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles, celebrated in the seventh biblical month “Ethanim/Tishrei” (note: Elijah's head; the top of mount Carmel),
you can see that Elijah was in the realm of the Spirit and brought forth the glorious manifestation of the seven spirits of God as well as of the seventh biblical month by his intercession, because the so-called head of the year “Rosh Hashanah” is in the seventh month in the biblical calendar, where the Feast of Tabernacles – Sukkot (note: “feast of glory”) is also celebrated (see Exodus 23:14-17).
 
Exodus 23:14-17:
14 “Three times a year you are to celebrate a festival to me.
15 “Celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread; for seven days eat bread made without yeast, as I commanded you. Do this at the appointed time in the month of Aviv, for in that month you came out of Egypt (note: Passover). “No one is to appear before me empty-handed.
16 “Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the firstfruits of the crops you sow in your field (note: Shavuot – Feast of Weeks/Pentecost). “Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field (note: Sukkot – Feast of Tabernacles).
17 “Three times a year all the men are to appear before the Sovereign Lord. …”
 
Elijah brought the supernatural rushing in his ears (note: the supernatural outpouring of God) into the position of his knees!
 
I am convinced that the LORD will come stronger than ever before from the season of Shavuot/ Pentecost with His glory, which has to do with the visitation of His secret being among His people on earth (see 1 Kings 8:2.10-13).
 
1 Kings 8:2.10-13:
2 All the Israelites came together to King Solomon at the time of the festival in the month of Ethanim, the seventh month. …
10 When the priests withdrew from the Holy Place, the cloud filled the temple of the Lord.
11 And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled his temple.
12 Then Solomon said, “The Lord has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud; 13 I have indeed built a magnificent temple for you, a place for you to dwell forever.”
 
The Phase of Acceleration and The Right Hand of God
 
This means that this alignment of time is helping the prophetic people of God to enter a phase of acceleration, linked to truth within the Word of God, and at the same time carrying a great measure of glory (see 1 Kings 18:46 i.c.w. Ephesians 6:14a).
 
1 Kings 18:46:
46 The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.
 
Ephesians 6:14a:
14a Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, …
 
It is about the movement of the right hand of God, which is Jesus Christ (see Mark 16:19 i.c.w. Colossians 3:1).
 
Mark 16:19:
19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
 
Colossians 3:1:
1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
 
It is the hand bringing healing, deliverance and salvation to people and it even calls and appoints them for the plan of the Heavenly Father (see Exodus 33:22-23 i.c.w. Isaiah 53:4-5; Mark 5:23; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Ephesians 4:11).
 
Exodus 33:22-23:
22 When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.
23 Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen.”
 
Isaiah 53:4-5:
4 Surely he (note: Jesus Christ) took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
 
Mark 5:23:
23 He pleaded earnestly with him, “My little daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so that she will be healed and live.”
 
Ephesians 4:11:
11 So Christ himself gave (note: as gifts) the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, …
 
Amen and Amen.
 
In His Wisdom,
 
Daniel Glimm
