Arise, Jerusalem [My people]! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you. All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance. “Look and see, for everyone is coming home! Your sons are coming from distant lands; your little daughters will be carried home. Your eyes will shine, and your heart will thrill with joy, for merchants from around the world will come to you. They will bring you the wealth of many lands. Vast caravans of camels will converge on you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. The people of Sheba will bring gold and frankincense and will come worshiping the Lord. The flocks of Kedar will be given to you, and the rams of Nebaioth will be brought for my altars. I will accept their offerings, and I will make my Temple glorious. Isaiah 60:1-7
We talk a lot about Ravens in 1 Kings 17 bringing provision and unexpected sources of supply, but did you know that the Lord also has Camels? Isaiah says, “The will bring you wealth of many lands. Vast caravens of camels will converge on you…” Camels are much bigger than ravens. A camel means increase! Friend, I believe 2019 will be a year where the camels are coming to you! God said in Isaiah 60 that He will make His Temple glorious. Under the New Covenant, we are that Temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells.
I was standing on stage on Sunday morning at The River Church in Tampa, FL giving a testimony of what God had done at an outreach in Coshocton that turned into a two week revival. At the end of my testimony, in front of over 1,000 people, I announced “When I go back, I’m starting a Church!” After going off the stage, my head was buzzing “What did I just say? Did I really say I’m starting a church!?” People were hugging and congratulating me, but if they had only known what I was thinking and feeling. I was NOT planning on saying that, or doing that! It came out of my spirit, not out of my head.
That Thursday I was sitting in service in Tampa, and Pastor Rodney called me out to pray for me for the new Church. I asked him if I could call it The River, and he said that he didn’t care what I called it. He then laid hands on me, and I was out under the power of God. He then told everyone in the Church, if they’d like to place money on me they could. When I finally got off the ground, there was about $4,000 dollars laying on me, and Pastor Rodney said he would add another $1000 on top! The Church started with a CAMEL! That same night the Lord gave me the blueprint to the Church and how to start it when I came back.
A year later the Church had a lot of needs. We mainly needed chairs, tables and office supplies. We had no money in the bank to buy it. I asked the Lord to provide. Not long after, I preached on Deu 28 on a Sunday morning and how blessings will over take us. After the service was over and everyone was gone, I went out to my car to leave. Suddenly a truck pulled up. A man walked out and asked who the Pastor was, I told him it was me. He said the office he worked for just closed, and asked if we could use some office supplies. I said YES! He took me to the back of his truck, and it was filled with boxes of supplies! Paper, highlighters, pens, tables, chairs, clip boards, paper clips and more! We still have boxes of supplies, even 4 years later! Praise God! He said in Isaiah, “Vast caravans of camels will converge on you!” Receive it in Jesus name!
