The following excerpt is taken from The Blood and the Glory by Billye Brim:

Witness the Rains

God’s call upon my life involves being a “witness.” I am to go about the earth and watch what He is doing and tell others. It amazes me how He makes it possible for me to do so.

In 1991, He impressed upon my spirit that I should spend the winter of ‘91 and ‘92 in Israel. When I prayed, His direction came to me quite clearly. He wanted me to witness some things which were very big. There would be an element of surprise in it. And He would widen the audience to hear the witness. Perhaps this book is just that.

I arrived at my Hebrew school in November. It was cold. And miracle of miracles, it was raining!

Israel had experienced a record drought for the five preceding years. I had been there many times with groups during the drought. I had viewed the Sea of Galilee from high above on the Cliffs of Arbel. The shrinking of the beautiful little sea which is the country’s reservoir was unbelievable.

Everyone said the greatest threat to their survival was not war. It was lack of water. Their water supply was disappearing even while their population was swelling. The Russian Jews were coming home in large numbers.

Strict measures were enacted. There were even rules about flushing toilets.

Bright Jews were brainstorming. Bringing in an iceberg was proposed among other desperate measures.

Our Jewish friends asked us to pray for rain. Group after group who came with us prayed openly the way we pray and the Jews said, “Amen.”

The cold was only surpassed by the rain. It rained and rained and rained. All day. Every day. It rained in sheets. Cold windy sheets.

The Sea of Galilee overflowed its banks. Scientists had predicted it would take years to fill up in normal rainy seasons. The Jordan swelled and rolled, the news reported, “as it must have in Bible days.”

Our Hebrew school went to Tiberias to take a look at it. We drove our bus through the flooded streets of the city. They so wanted us to see the miracle, they encouraged us to get out and walk to the banks of the sea where waves were crashing.

The Dessert Bloomed

A tour group was to meet me in March. Now they would be witnesses. Not to the rains. They stopped in mid-March. But to their results.

I have ridden many busses through the Land. But never have my eyes beheld what we saw that spring. Bright flowers carpeted the Land of Israel.

The miracle of miracles was the Judean desert. Normally a brown rocky wilderness, it was blanketed with green grasses and red and yellow and purple and blue and whatever color flowers come in. They measured one square meter, and counted the varieties of wild flowers. There were more than twenty. Veteran desert guides said through the media they had never seen the desert like that. Seed came up they didn’t even know was there!

Prophecy Fulfilled

The Lord drew my attention to two things in this.

First, He told me to read Isaiah 35:1. I had read it many times, “The wilderness and the solitary place shall…blossom as the rose.” I’d always interpreted it to mean the things Israel was growing from irrigation in the desert.

But the Lord said to me, “Isaiah didn’t write in chapters and verses. Back up to the end of chapter 34 and read it in context.”

ISAIAH 34:16,17; 35:1
16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
17 And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them: and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

I saw it! It’s talking about the Ingathering of the Jews! He scattered the Jews in the Diaspora. But the Bible says in many places that just before the Messiah comes He will gather them.

The Berlin Wall fell without the influence of any super power or mighty army. God pushed it down. When it fell, the teeth of Communism were pulled. In 1991 Jews from behind the Iron Curtain came home to Israel in record numbers.

And the desert was blossoming for them!

It was a sign of the coming of the Lord!

So were the rains!

The Lord said to me, “These physical rains in Israel are a sign of what is about to happen in the Church. Israel is prophetic of what is about to occur in the church. Tell them the rains of the Spirit are coming. And seed is going to come up they didn’t even know was in the ground.”

There is no describing the power and absolute “uncontrollability” of the rains.

Many have seen moves of the Spirit and great revivals. Many have seen the revival of divine healing of the ‘40s and ‘50s. But not many remain who have seen an outpouring.

You and I will.

We are in the edges of it now.

Voices must be amplified and there must be a greater visibility of the Church
We will continue to water the seeds of Your Word

Not one little part of that land will be taken away
Pleading the blood over their borders

Father, we pray for a greater revelation in the Church in America
We believe for politicians and the Jewish people living here to understand the importance of supporting Israel!
Everyone who is still needs to move back to Israel, we call them in!

There is so much at stake and there is much to be done
Praying for greater understanding for every office of authority
Lord, touch their hands and feet
Revive them in the midst of their years and lift them up out of the muck, mire, and clay
Marching in a new way today along the highway
We must press on
Applying the blood over the steps that are to be taken
Calling for clear understanding to watch and advance
Lord, we will be strong in the power of Your might!
The Church is marching on in strength!
