The Overflow – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

The Overflow
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3, NASU)
Many in the prophetic realm who have been part of congregations where this gift of the Holy Spirit is received and treasured have been hearing in the last decades of how stadiums will be filled with believer gatherings in these last days of revival. I certainly have heard this proclaimed. Men like Paul Cain, Bob Jones, and others, whom I highly respected, and heard personally several times before they went on to glorious rewards, spoke of that which the Lord Jesus said was coming, through His Holy Spirit.
And it is coming.
Even as Isaiah prophesied in his words to Israel and the Jews (quoted above) and repeated by Yeshua during His walk on the earth in the Promised Land, again to the Jews, I believe this promise is also given to those who have been grafted into the olive tree, the believing Gentile Body of Christ. Together in our days, the One New Man is beginning to truly operate, to complete the eternal plans and purpose of our Father God, His Son Jesus, through the work of the third part of the God-head Trinity, the Holy Spirit.
The glory of the Lord will rise upon us. His glory will appear upon us. Nations are coming to the light He is causing to shine through us. That will include kings, presidents, and leaders in high positions. 

Though the darkness abounds, even deep darkness, the people of God – both Jews and Gentiles who are created as the Body of the Lord here on earth – will have His light shine through us in that very darkness.

Because of this light, the Light of the World, the same light residing in the spirits of believing men and women through His Holy Spirit, in addition through the children of all ages following His commands, the nations are coming. They are being drawn to His power.
Yes, the nations are coming.
Are we ready?
Recently during our weekly staff meeting of Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina, USA, during our regular time of prayer to start the week, the Lord gave me the word “overflow”. I knew what He was talking about when I heard the word in my mind. I then spoke it out loud as a proclamation of faith. We were needing one of the large rooms, 23,000 square feet, for the “overflow” that was coming.
The overall large complex, known as The River Place, is 103,000 total square feet space, housing three main event/gathering place buildings, and is still in the process of being completely renovated. Our plan is to further restore that which was lost decades ago, for the purposes now in use, including that as an event venue location for all types of organizations. 

While this may certainly, and is, occurring, I felt the Lord was saying more specifically, that one particular space, known as the Studio, will be more for use for “overflow” than for these outside client rental events. A primary purpose will be to hold the overflow of the spiritual gatherings coming to the main building, known as The Barn, due to the vastness of the numbers of people.

Between these two large areas, over 3,000 people could congregate as they will gather together in prayer, worship, hearing the Word, receiving healing and deliverance, and experiencing the overall power of the Most High God’s presence.

The nations are coming. They are coming to the light. And we, among other places where He is preparing for this mighty outpouring of His Holy Spirit, have the Light of the World in our midst. His Name is Jesus. He is revealing Himself in glory and power, and taking back that which was lost, stolen, and completely dead.
The overflow spaces – all around in the nations too – will be needed. Because they will be filled with hurting, lost, poor, people “in need of everything”, we must be diligent today in preparing them for such a time as that which is coming.

No longer will it be those spoken words of the past, when it has previously been said “decades down the road” will this occur. No longer will it just be said, “O, my kids will see this move of the Lord.”

It is now. You, they and I will see this work of the Lord. NOW is the time to get ready for the masses to come. Now is the time, not only for the Jews to be returning to Israel in masses, in aliyah, but also for the people within the nations of the world to finally come to Jesus in huge numbers.
Get yourselves ready for the overflow. Get your gathering buildings ready for the overflow. Get connected, dedicated, and with more resolve in your heart to be a part of what the Lord is doing and is certainly going to be increasing in His wonderful, creative doings.
The overflow is coming. It is just around the corner.
Get ready.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
Lift up your eyes round about and see;
They all gather together, they come to you.
Your sons will come from afar,
And your daughters will be carried in the arms.
Then you will see and be radiant,
And your heart will thrill and rejoice;
Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you,
The wealth of the nations will come to you.”
(Isaiah 60:-5, NASU)
Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
