"God's Mercy Rain: A Release Over the Land"
By Dean Mitchum
Word from the Lord, "Where deception
and divisiveness have been, will now come truth and unity. The power of deceit will be crushed by the power of forgiveness. A mercy rain will fall upon Believers and drop like ashes on the head of the enemy."
That phrase, mercy rain, kept
coming back to me and I felt God was speaking more on this.
"Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds." (Psalm 36:5 NKJV)
"He shall send from Heaven and save me; He reproaches
the one who would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth." (Psalm 57:3 NKJV)
A Vision of Rain
The vision I had was that of multitudes across the nation—struggling
in conflicts and situations—being drenched by this rain. They were fighting battles of distractions and causes and were not seeing the strategic plan of the enemy.
The mercy rain began to wash away the perceptions and judgments of
others and their eyes were enlightened to truth. Something greater than the opposing forces began to have an effect upon the conflict. And where the real enemy had caused division, the forces fighting began to see each other in a new way and started to turn
against the devil and his hoards, sending shock waves through the kingdom of darkness.
He is Pouring Healing and Forgiveness Over the Land
Like a miracle rain over a summer forest fire, the Lord is
releasing a mercy across this land. Where the fires of hatred, controversy, and mistrust have burned, He is pouring out a mercy rain that will bring healing to the nations. The raging wild fire and the parched land are both changed by rain. A divine intervention
will turn the heads and hearts of people. A refreshing, cool wind and water will hit the faces of people and cause them to look again at new possibilities.
The mercy rain is penetrating prejudice and wrecking racism. The hearts of those
who have judged will see new mercy and become like new men. The point of conflict will become the place of revival. Years of conflict that have been a way of life are giving way to the freedom of forgiveness.
We Will See New Mercies
The sound of forgiveness will bring healing in previously held strongholds of the enemy, causing miraculous signs and wonders. Those in positions to extract revenge will find themselves offering mercy and changing
the course of cities and neighborhoods—seeing new mercies every morning.
"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22-23
"But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me." (Psalm 13:5-6 NKJV)
Let us prophecy this rain together. Let us
sing the songs of the release of Heaven and sing of the mercies of the Lord and let mercy rain down.
"Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from Heaven.
Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase."
