Is a Dromedary? God Showed Me What They're Bringing"
By Darren Canning
Isaiah 60:5-6, "Then
you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah. And all from Sheba will
come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord."
As I was waking up the other morning, I kept hearing over and over, "Dromedary, Dromedary, Dromedary." I
honestly forgot what the word meant. I knew that it was referenced in the Bible but I couldn't remember the meaning, so I looked it up. The dromedary is a particular breed of camel. It is the one-hump camel that originated from Arabia and was domesticated
for use over 3,000 years ago. They are known for their ability to carry large cargo loads over long distances.
"The Camels Are Coming"
You may have heard someone prophesy, "THE CAMELS ARE COMING." What this means is that provision is coming into your household. I started noticing camels many years ago. Every time I noticed one, an excitement would rise inside of me and I knew that financial
breakthrough was coming. I would see a camel on a sign and within a couple of days I would often receive big financial provision unexpectedly.
For example, several days ago I was
watching an old movie, and in the film someone was wearing a sport coat that the main character in the movie admired. He asked him, "Why is this material so soft?" The man responded that it was "Camel's wool"! My entire family is aware of the prophetic significance
of the camel, so when we heard this, we laughed knowing that God was saying to expect financial breakthrough to come quickly, and it did. The next day, unexpected money began to come into our account of up to $1,000.
God has a language that is very different than our language. As God's people we spend our lives trying to understand the way God speaks. As we pursue Him it is very exciting when we hear Him. When God speaks He doesn't lie
to us or try to trick us. What He says to us He means, and so a joy rises in our hearts when He does. This joy and peace that comes from His voice is one of the ways I recognize His voice. God is good and His voice is wonderful.
When I hear "Dromedary," which is a word I don't even normally use, and then learn that it is a camel, I expect breakthrough. When I hear it over and over again, it is as if God is yelling it to me and I expect great breakthrough.
I certainly can use it, and I am sure that many of you can use this breakthrough also.
My ministry is a ministry of faith, so I expect the camels to come every week carrying provision
to my tent. I believe the camels represent angelic breakthrough. I believe there are financial and provisional angels assigned to our lives. Abraham recognized this when he told his servant to go into his father's homeland to find a bride for his son Isaac.
He told him that God would send His angel to go before him to prosper his way.
"He replied, 'The LORD, before whom I have walked faithfully, will send His angel with you and make
your journey a success, so that you can get a wife for my son from my own clan and from my father's family." (Genesis 24:40)
There are many of you out there that are seeing similar
things and you are wondering if God speaks this way. He does, and I for one am very glad He does. He is a good Father who lets us hear His voice.
What Is God Saying to You Today?
What is God saying to you today? Perhaps you are seeing a pattern emerge as you go about your life. Have you been hearing something but don't have an understanding of what it means? Just continue to pursue Him. Continue
to ask Him to give you revelation. I believe God wants to give you revelation. Revelation is really just God's perspective and solution to your life's questions. I not only believe that God has the answers to our questions, I also believe He plants the questions
so that we will seek particular answers. He has done this to me many times.
Ezekiel 47:6-8, "He asked me, 'Son of man, do you see this?' Then he led me back to the bank of the
river. When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river. He said to me, 'This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, where it enters the Dead Sea. When it empties into the sea, the salty water becomes
In this passage we see God asking a man what He sees. Not only does he plant a question, God then gives Him the answer. This is the kind of relationship that I want with
God. I want Him to plant questions and the answers. Much revelation and wisdom will come.
I pray for you today and ask God to open up your heart and mind to hear His voice. I also
pray that your provisional breakthrough will come. Most of us need such a breakthrough many times in our lives. Whatever you are believing for today, I come into agreement with you for breakthrough in God's way and in His time.
