the Anointing pt7

Dear beloved: Many times a corporate anointing comes when we are in a meeting where the Holy Spirit is really moving with power, and for that reason it is important that we seek out revivals and other meetings where we expect the power to manifest. In 1 Chronicles 5:13, after the building of the temple in the time of king Solomon, the temple was dedicated v13 in unison when the trumpeters and the singers were to make themselves heard with one voice to praise and glorify the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice accompanied by trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and when they praised the Lord saying, "He indeed is good for his kindness is everlasting," then the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, v14 so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God. So we see that when the glory cloud came down it was so powerful the priests could not stand up, they fell down under the weight of it.
The Lakeland Revival of a couple summers ago was just such a meeting. Although it was a mixture of fire because some of the leadership had unconfessed sin in their lives, the power of the anointing and the glory cloud over that revival was very strong. Many healings, miracles, and other blessings were poured out on the people that came there over a 5 month period of time. God met the people because the Holy Spirit was not being quenched, and the people came with high expectations of receiving a blessing from the Lord, and He did not disappoint them. The praise and worship times were extremely powerful and people were receiving healings just from participating, and the glory cloud was so strong that many were falling down under the weight of it without anyone touching them or praying specifically over them, the same corporate anointing that came on Solomon's temple.
There will be many more outpourings of the Holy Spirit in the days ahead; God wants to manifest His presence in this land in such a way that everyone has a chance to stand under the glory cloud of His anointing. On the way home from Lakeland the Lord gave me a dream that revealed to me I was to take the corporate fire from Lakeland and spread it across the land. In the dream I was in an airplane(ministry) and I was flying over the heartland of the USA at night. As I looked down upon the land, I could see fires burning in many different places, connected to each other by chords or strings of fire. It looked a bit like a city with electric street lights glowing at night. God was showing me to take the fire and spread it all over the land, and that the fires would all be connected to each other as the kingdom was built up. The second part of the dream a giant wave of water came up against the fires, and the Lord was showing me that the demonic forces coming against the fire of the Lord would be very strong also, and would attempt to put the fires out. We can certainly see that happening in America today, the devil is doing his best to quench the fire of the kingdom and he is pulling out all the stops to take down God's people.
The corporate anointing that came upon the people in Acts 2 was of coarse the explosion that set off the church, and we are still beneficiaries of that anointing today. Acts2:1 And when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. v2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. v3 And there appeared to them tongues of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. v4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Beloved, God wants to pour out His anointing, His glory, and His fire onto you, and He doesn't care whether in a church, a revival, or an open field. You will see in the days ahead tremendous outpourings of revival that will dwarf the revivals of the past. Seek Him as you see the glory manifest and you will receive a blessing! May God bless you this day as you seek Him, in Christ, Jim
