Beloved, whatever you have walked through in the past, no matter the sadness, the loss, the failure or oppression.
Your Latter Days Will Be Greater Than Your Former
The Lord has a word for you today, that your latter days shall be greater and glorious. That means what God did for your parents, grandparents — what previous generations have experienced, the blessing and favor — that was good, but God is a God of increase. He has greater things in store for you.
That promotion you were so thrilled with ten years ago, the restoration that took place five years ago. And in this place I will give peace, declares the Lord of hosts.
Today, I speak these words of blessings over you my friends, your latter days shall be greater, your livese shall take a greater and glorious dimension in the name of Jesus.
Your latter days shall bring increase, promotion, double breakthrough and abundance in the name of Jesus. I speak double speed over your lives, ministries, churches, children, marriages, businesses in the name of Jesus. Reblogged this on Wisdom From Lord. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Look at the father of our faith, Abraham. After Sarah's death, Isaac refused to be comforted, so Abraham sent his servant to find a bride for his son Isaac.
And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh: And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?
And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again. The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house, and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence. And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither again.
And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and sware to him concerning that matter. And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher. And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.
And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the LORD had made his journey prosperous or not. She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender enough, and room to lodge in.
And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD. And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.
And he said, Speak on. And the LORD hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. And Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath. And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell: But thou shalt go unto my father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son.
And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me. And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bare unto him: and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon her hands.Post a Comment.
Sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Some times you have to speak victory during the test.
Your Latter shall be Greater than your Former!
No matter how you feel, speak the Word and you will be healed. Speak over yourself. Encourage yourself in the Lord. Being raised in the church, I accepted Christ at the age of twelve. I don't remember what life was like before that because it seemed like church was all we did in our house. But as an adult I do remember a time period when the Lord didn't seem present and nothing but storm after storm came and I felt so alone.
A time of total destruction of the life that I had built. Now before this time period came, life was wonderful. Everything seemed to be running on all cylinders. I didn't even see the storm approaching or total destruction heading my way. I'm sure there were warning signs but apparently I ignored them. But to make a long story short Much like the people in the book of Haggai.
Read the entire book of Haggai. It's only two chapters The temple had been destroyed and they had been instructed to rebuild the temple. And amazingly enough, after fifteen years, it still was not completed. Because they were more concerned with building their own houses then the house of the Lord.
Let me put a footnote here - You must get your priorities straight. Spiritual house, then earthly house. But that's not what I want to talk about.
The question was asked 'Is there anyone who can remember this house - the Temple - as it was before? It must seem like nothing at all. I know that there are many Christians who did not grow up in the church or accept Him at an early age.
I could also ask the question 'Do you remember what your life was like before you decided to fully commit to him'? You may have accepted him as a child but you didn't really start walking with him until you were older. Whatever the case may be, do you recognize a difference? Does it appear to be better or worse? You see, in the life before Christ you may had thought you were doing alright. Life was just rolling on. You didn't have too many problems.
You had a job. Your health was alright.Why don't fictional characters say "goodbye" when they hang up a phone? If we can't tunnel through the Earth, how do we know what's at its center?

Hottest Questions. Previously Viewed. Unanswered Questions. The Bible. Wiki User The Bible speaks of the "first or former" and "latter" rains, because each year is divided into "two growing seasons" He promises to give us the exact amount of rain we need to grow perfect crops, regardless of the season, that fill our storehouses to overflowing What a blessing. But, according to the Bible In fact Our governments in their desire to play God, seek to control the earth's weather by limiting our "carbon footprint" They fail to see the wisdom in God's Commandments.
Which is truly the opposite of the intent of the Commandments: to love God with all your heart, and to love and respect others. According to the Bible Instead of the blessed former and latter rain in due season Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season : He reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
Your iniquities have turned away these thingsand your sins have withholden good things from you. But, the nations insist on ignoring God's Word. It's the reason for our turbulent upside-down weather The Bible means just what it says: Fear God according to His Word, and the former and latter rains will yield the blessed well-being and satisfaction of full bellies.
Your sincere cries have reached out and God is going to show mercy and compassion.
He wants you to continue to turn your hearts toward Him and call out to Him in repentance and godly sorrow. God says that He had to do some breaking and shaking in our lives in order to get our attention…. The shaking in your life is bringing about a tremendous change in Him. He is removing the hindrances that are causing you to stagnate in Him.Your Latter
There is still some breaking and shaking because God wants us to come to Him and serve Him wholeheartedly! God says He removed some things and people because you depended on them more than you depended on Him.
God says His glory about shine in your life and He is going to restore everything that you lost and then give you more. The blessings which God is bringing into the lives of His people now, are far greater than we can imagine. We will look at the things of the past and there will be no comparison to what He is preparing us for! God says to hold on a little while longer, while the breaking and shaking is making and drawing His people closer to Him.
Those who have heeded His call will come and His glory will shine upon them; those who harden their hearts, will receive the hand of judgement. For those who are waiting upon him, hold on for a little while longer because your latter house shall be greater than your former house!

Deuteronomy is part of a promise that God gave to the nation of Israel that if they would love Him Deuteronomy and keep His commandments Deuteronomy then He would bless them.
The blessing is described in the entire chapter and verses is a promise of enough rain to grow their crops and feed their animals. He will give grass in your fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
Deuteronomy NASB. In Israel the early rains came in the autumn October-November and the latter rain came in the spring March-April. Jeremiah KJV. The NIV changes the wording slightly from former and latter to autumn and spring to reflect the meaning of the Hebrew words translated as former and latter. Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest. Jeremiah NIV. Hosea describes the second coming of the Lord Jesus at the beginning of the millennial kingdom.
Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. Hosea NIV. Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. God takes care of those who follow Him and those who do not. He cares for the ungrateful Luke and those who are thankful. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Joel refers to the early and latter rain as well. This passage is important since some teach it has a spiritual meaning when it refers to the rain. And He has poured down for you the rain, the early and latter rain as before. As a result, revival will occur and many will believe in God. But the passage does not say that.I was stuck on this song today. I like Israel Houghton. I think he has an infectious heart of worship.
Ever since his New Seasons release inhe has had a growing presence in the gospel market. Though I do not listen to much of this genre, I find that New Seasons is an album I come back to from time to time. As I listened to the words of this song, I was both encouraged and skeptical. I plan on doing a longer piece on Israel and his music, what I like and lament.
But suffice it say for now that I listen with a great deal of ambivalence. Specific to this song, in relation to some long desired restoration I have hoped for, I am encouraged knowing that God can do the impossible. And by skeptical, I mean can we expect that our tomorrows will be better than the past? While I have observed that this verse has been commonly stated and applied to mean that God will make our lives better, I think that misses what the prophet is saying.
Keep in mind that Israel was a people who were recipients of his promises through what was promised to Abraham Gen At this point, Israel had just come out of exile and were rebuilding the temple.
The temple was the central place of worship but they had lost it, and their land and kingship because of their rebellion. The prophet is saying that what is to come is better than what they have experienced via the system of temple worship. So by latter house the prophet is referring to the central place of glory found in the person of Christ cf Col.
But if we are to understand how that passage relates to the New Testament, the only logical conclusion is that the latter house refers to fulfillment of promises in Christ.
But does that mean we dismiss the song outright? Because I do believe that God brings good things to his children.
I do believe that he blesses us this way and we can expect for him to provide for us.
