Double Rain, Double Glory


Prophetic words of wisdom
by Mike Thompson



A few years ago, the Lord spoke to my heart saying, The former rain and the latter rain of Joel 2 are symbolic of what I am releasing into the Earth.  The harvest from the current revival of God’s Glory is now turning into an increase of souls. It is also bringing greater fruitfulness in healings, miracles and financial breakthroughs.

I let this word simmer in my spirit for a few days, as the Lord continued to download the message.  God’s timing is important to understand, when you receive words from God.

The Glory Outpouring of early 2008 was a result of the spiritual work the Lord had been doing all season long.  For us, it really revved up about the time of the Feast of Tabernacles, 2007.

God started doing a New Thing.  The Glory of God was present and powerful in our own services, to the point that we were getting intoxicated – drunk! – by His presence in almost every service.  In May, 2008, Ck and I heard about the Revival in Lakeland, Florida and knew we had to go.  We went to connect with the move of God, and to connect with revivalists from all over the world.  We found out this thing was global!


Hundreds of thousands of people went to Lakeland, where they were healed and set free.  The Glory of God was tangible.  Thousands of Pastors, Prophets and Apostles received the impartation of this Open Heaven outpouring, and began to take it to the ends of the Earth.

Then came the dry spell. Persecution and Religious ‘heat’ attempted to make it look like the Glory Revival was over.  A ‘locust spirit’ stepped into the crop.  Locusts of sin, reproach, criticism, discouragement and fear consumed all they could reach.

The locust spirit looked for every point of entry it could find.  It used human failings and unresolved heart issues.  It especially used the carnal mindset of shame and punishment – under the guise of ‘holiness’ – to try to stop the move of God.  Some people backed off, ashamed to be associated with it.

‘Locust’ teamed up with spirits of Religion, Pharisee, Legalism and ‘Accuser of the brethren’ to plant doubt in the hearts of God’s people.

But God had a plan the devil wasn’t counting on. This plan was set in motion before the foundation of the world, and no locust spirit or any other foul demon could stop it.  God’s plan?

To send the former rain and the latter rain together in the same month.  A mighty rain that would wipe out the enemy’s devices.  A mighty outpouring of Heavenly precipitation.  I’m talking about an Open Heaven, initiated by God. A new thing: Glory and Grace sent to usher in the end-time harvest of souls on Planet Earth.

Human frailty had nothing to do with it.  It’s all about Jesus.  The Outpouring wasn’t just for Florida.  One person couldn’t contain it.  The devil thought he stopped it, but no!  The Revival had already gone global!

Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you--

The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.
The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,The consuming locust, And the chewing locust…(Joel 2:23-25)

And now, says the Lord, get ready for the combined former and latter rains!  It’s restoration time!  The ‘crop’ that is coming will be more than a double crop from the double rain.  God is multiplying it back to us.

Get ready for it.  God already set the course in the spiritual realm.  Souls are coming to the Lord.  Prodigals are coming home.  Your finances are being loosed, and you’ll see miracles like you’ve never seen before.

The Lord speaks INCREASE.  The Lord declares FRUITFULNESS.  These are your Days of Destiny –
your days of Open Heaven!
