As I was driving to church this morning, it hit me, and I started laughing.
This morning when I got up, I heard the James Taylor song, “Fire and Rain” in my head, as I was trying to pray. While driving to church I was thinking about it again, as I had printed the words out;
I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again
Won’t you look down upon me Jesus, you’ve got to help me make a stand
You’ve just got to see me through another day
My body’s aching and my time is at hand
I won’t make it any other way
I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
…and I started laughing. Because, He is not looking down on us, He is in our hearts and we are looking up to our Heavenly Father! But for those that don’t know Him, it’s a step, (thank you James Taylor) so I’m not laughing at the unsaved that don’t know. I’m laughing with Yashua in joy as we have the greatest privilege to praise Him. We’re not pouting about our situation at all, He is in control of all things great and small, volcanos, storms and rain, to bless and to destroy when necessary, for the sake of the Kingdom.
‘Fire and Rain’ is a good theme song for Hawaii though, all of us having gone through ‘fire and rain’ recently and I heard the ‘spirit’ say that what we are going through is a macrocosm for America and even the other nations. If you think about it, we are all going through the fire and rain in one way or another. Everywhere on the planet in fact is going through floods and fires. Everywhere! Just check out the weather channel or take a look out your window.
It’s a time of testing and time of blessing. It’s all Him! He is going to refine us and bless us at the same time. Are we just going to gleefully sing the “Refiners Fire, My Hearts one Desire” song, flippantly? Do we really know what we are asking for? Well, we really don’t know, but He is pleased when we are willing to have faith and trust in Him, wholeheartedly. That’s what a son does.
Now this prophetic word called “The Water (Dam) is About to Break,” is a bit cryptic, and when I shared it at church a few weeks ago, I told everyone that they might need to seek our Heavenly Father for their own understanding, as you will see. It is different than anything that I have written. But I felt urged and wanted to be obedient to read it. It’s an interesting word that I wrote a year ago (again I didn’t quite understand what I was given) then I heard that it was time to read it – which I did three weeks ago before Hurricane Lane.
Lets prepare our hearts for what is ahead.
The Water (Dam) Is About to Break Prophetic Word Don Penner
He gave me the first words, then as I wrote the rest came. When I finished, He gave me more for what is to come for California and the coastlands, travail for California, then other coastal places in America, then Hawaii which is the 50th State, then the other Nations on the earth. Then there will be birth, the breaking of the waters is before childbirth, as we know. Hawaii just had Statehood day on Friday, August 17th remembering its birth into the U.S. (John16:21)
He is about to give birth to something new, a new child.
We don’t like the birth pains.
The men will be like Sarah, laughing in their tents.
What about the women? They will be astonished, mystified. They have never seen such behavior in men, dancing and . . . I don’t even have the words, behaving as a giddy bride would behave when she is in love and she can’t be away from her husband, her groom. She is lovesick, men swooning and being love sick in the streets, as if run and having been struck from their friends
Song of Solomon 5:7 The watchmen who went about the city found me and struck me; they wounded me; those keeping the walls lifted my veil from me. 8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my Beloved, what do you tell Him? That I am sick with love.
. . . but they will not come to their earthly senses.
They will join with their friends in the dance, I say dancing unashamedly as David danced before the Lord, for David saw as a King, the glory to come of the King of His heart, the Captain of his soul, the King of Kings and David rejoiced mightily with all his strength, all he could give unashamed just as our savior gave.
and I tell you, yes there will be dancing in the streets, both men and daughters, mothers and sons will join in the dance, rejoicing before me. they know their King has come and is coming. He, He . . He is burning with passion for our souls and will bring, even lavish on us all, all that is befitting His bride, to prepare her.
The Father looks on with joy, for this is a day of marriage that even creation has been deeply, deeply, deeply yearning for. He has not held back anything for His son. His joy has no boundaries in the Kingdom, and the Kingdom I tell you, it is here!
There is New Wine at the wedding feast. It will flow in the streets of the New Jerusalem for the multitudes to drink.
Everlasting joy will be upon them. The whole family of heaven will be gathered in glorious unspeakable praise before the lamb who sits on the throne with His bride.
Isaiah 59:18-20 According to works, so He will repay; fury to His foes; recompense to His foes; He will repay recompense to the coasts. So they shall fear the name of YAHWEH from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the foe comes like a flood, the Spirit of YAHWEH shall cause him to flee. And the Redeemer comes to Zion, and to those in Jacob who turn back from their rebellion, declares YAHWEH.
He will redeem the land back to those in covenant with Him. Is 44:22, Heb 9:28 Lev 25:25-28. John 16:20-21
