There are a lot of things stirring in the spirit realm. The Holy Spirit is beginning to move across the nations. We are going to see more revival meetings in stadiums filled with people worshipping Jesus because they are hungry for God. This is why the enemy has been trying to discourage and disrupt the lives of believers. He has been trying to silence those who have a prophetic voice, and trying to bring discord and division among the body of Christ.
We are coming into a time when prophets will hear the voice of the Holy Spirit with precision, and release it with accuracy just as the prophets of old. We are going to experience Supernatural Signs and Wonders in the days ahead. In the book of 2 Kings Chapter 6 Elisha went with a group of prophets to the Jordan River to cut down some trees to build a place to stay. As they were cutting them down, one man’s borrowed ax head fell into the water.
Elisha asked him where it fell and he pointed the location out to him. Elisha then threw a stick into the water and something supernatural happened. The iron ax head floated to the top of the water. This stick was symbolic of the cross of Jesus and His resurrection. The Jordan River is symbolic for several things. It was the river that the Israelites crossed over into the Promised Land. It was also the river that Elijah parted with his cloak as he and Elisha walked through on dry land.
Soon after, Elijah was caught up in a whirlwind as chariots of fire with horses of fire appeared. After Elijah was taken up, Elisha then took Elijah’s cloak and called on God saying “Where is the God of Elijah?” The river then parted for Elisha in the same manner.
There are ministers who will receive a double portion anointing of those who passed on and entrusted their ministries to them. The Jordan River was also the river that Jesus was baptized in. After Jesus was baptized and came up out of the water, the heavens were opened. He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Again it is symbolic of resurrection power. Our eyes are going to be opened to see in the spirit realm. In 2 Kings 6:17 As the army encamped around them, Elisha asked the Lord to open his servant’s eyes so that he will see the angelic hosts protecting them. The Lord opened his eyes and he saw the mountain filled with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. He didn’t see this in the natural but his spiritual eyes were opened.
Some of you could only see the darkness that seems to be encamped around you but the Lord is about to open your spiritual eyes. He wants to show you the angelic realm as well as the demonic realm.
The Lord is Releasing Spiritual Discernment
Those who are listening to the father’s heart will receive keen spiritual discernment. In the book of 2 Kings 6 when the King of Syria was making war against Israel, he didn’t understand how Israel knew his secret plans. He asked his own army officers, which one of them was a spy. One of his officers replied, “None of us, my lord the king,” but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”
The Holy Spirit is going to reveal the plans of the enemy. He will reveal the evil hearts of men. He will reveal deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him. Some of you feel as if you lost communication with Jesus but the Lord says, “You have not lost favor with Me, neither have you lost communication. As you trusted Me in the silent times, I will speak to you once again. You will regain your spiritual hearing.”
Those of you who have been desensitized to His voice will hear once again. His voice is able to break through the barriers and tear down the hindrances that are blocking you from hearing. Those of you who have felt disconnected will sense His presence once again. His anointing that seemed to dissipate from your life will be restored. Just as the Lord revealed Himself to others, He will reveal myself to you.
2 Kings 2:8 Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground.2 Kings 6:6-7 So the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And he showed him the place. So he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float. Therefore he said, “Pick it up for yourself.” So he reached out his hand and took it.
2 Kings 6:11-12 Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was greatly troubled by this thing; and he called his servants and said to them, “Will you not show me which of us is for the king of Israel?” And one of his servants said, “None, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom.”

Born to Raze Hell by Elaine TavolacciI am going to share a word that I had three years ago. The Holy Spirit brought this word back to me after speaking with several friends who are so fired up with testimonies of what Jesus is doing in their lives and ministries the past few weeks. We have been placed in the kingdom of God for such a time as this and we are called to “Raze” Hell. There is no place for lukewarm Christianity or mediocrity in the kingdom of God. We are called, chosen, appointed and anointed to establish the Kingdom of God on the earth and destroy the works of the enemy. The definition of “Raze” is: To tear down; demolish; level to the ground and completely destroy.
A Deborah Company Emerging by Elaine TavolacciI want to share a prophetic dream that I had a few years ago. Although this word is for women, it is not promoting or preferring women over men. For the past few years there has been an increase in spiritual warfare against women. The Holy Spirit brought me back to this dream today. In the dream there was a great swarm of large, brightly colored yellow and black bumblebees flying around in my room as I was reading my
