The rain of blessing is the Holy Spirit rejuvenating, refreshing and accelerating your increase.
Rain is a symbol of God’s blessing. Joel prophesied “He will cause the rain to come down for you-- The former rain, and the latter rain” (Joel 2:23). This prophecy was fulfilled at Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came. Look at how rain works:
Rain softens the soil for the seed, like the Holy Spirit prepares the dry unbelieving heart for the Gospel.
Rain falls indiscriminately. I’ve preached to huge crowds during a torrential downpour. Everyone got equally drenched. When the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus everyone gets equally drenched in His love; muslims, hindus, buddhists and christians.
Rain covers the earth systematically. No area is excluded. Rain falls in every place, even in the desert. Similarly there’s not one person outside of what Jesus did at the cross. God’s plan is the Gospel for every tribe, culture and person.
Rain refreshes. The Holy Spirit refreshes us, by reminding us what Jesus Christ has done.
Rain accelerates the harvest. With the right amount of rain, your harvest will quickly come to maturity.
Right now we are knee deep in an accelerated harvest. Our Gospel Festivals are in full swing, but our biggest salvation tool, Grace Television Network, is positioning us for a harvest beyond anything we have seen before.
This acceleration has to do with the prophetic destiny for Canada and for you.
Twenty years ago, while watching an American Christian television network, the Holy Spirit spoke clearly “Don’t switch the channel. Pay attention. One day you will do this.” Many times I wondered if God has really spoken to me. It looked so impossible. A TV channel? In Canada? How? It all seemed unreal.
When the opportunity to purchase the Christian Channel (now Grace TV) came, I instantly remembered that prophetic word. I used to wonder if I would have to move to another country to see this vision come to pass, but it has happened right here in Canada.
Look at the parallel between the rain of blessing and Grace TV.
God uses Grace TV to soften hearts. People who never darken the door of a church have an opportunity to hear a crystal clear message of Jesus in their own home.
Grace TV is without discrimination. Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Christians are watching and contacting us. Your partnership makes it possible.
Grace TV covers Canada systematically. No province is excluded. While there are still households that don’t receive our signal, the signal is available everywhere. Our mandate is clear:
Saturate Canada with the Grace TV signal and then build Canada’s Gospel television voice to the world.
Grace TV refreshes. We do not focus on religious self-efforts that always fall short. Instead we look to what Christ has already provided. What a refreshing!
Grace TV accelerates the harvest. Many times as I walk into the Grace Prayer Centre, the phone is ringing off the hook. People are receiving from Christ.
Rain brings both blessing and challenges. Look what happened when the rain of blessing fell; Elijah said to the king “Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you. Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.” (1 Kings 18:44-45).
God’s rain of blessing is falling on Canada and on you. Elijah told the king “prepare your chariot”. I ask you to prepare yourself; get ready for God’s rain of blessing.
• Say “Yes” to Canada’s prophetic destiny in the world.
• Say “Yes” to the continuation of Canada’s largest 24/7 Gospel television network.
• Say “Yes” to saturating Canada with Grace TV.
• Say “Yes” to building Grace TV into a Gospel voice to the world.
• Say “Yes” to a harvest of God’s favor in your life.
Elijah asked for extraordinary measures to be taken. This is an extraordinary season. Our international Gospel Festivals are firing on all cylinders, while Grace TV is becoming a great harvester for Christ.
God’s rain of Holy Ghost blessing is just that- A BLESSING, BUT ALSO A GLORIOUS CHALLENGE.
Our challenge now is a $500,000 payment towards the purchase of Grace TV. We have already paid $750,000, and now the next payment is due. God has helped us to this point. All I ask you today, is that you look to JESUS, and what He wants to do THROUGH YOU!
Can I count on you this month? When you respond, rejoice in the blessing of participating in this vision.
First, make sure you are included in the Grace 10,000 Partnership. Second, give your very best for the Grace TV purchase. Some can give $50, $100, $250 or $500. Others could just as easily give $1,000, $2,000, or $5,000. Let God lead you, and then respond quickly to His urging in your heart.
Love in Christ,
