'Chosen to Change Th Atmosphere' Elaine Tavolacci
Several years ago I was driving in my car with an elderly lady named Florence. She was a born again believer but she wasn’t Holy Spirit-filled. I had worship music playing as I always do, and the presence of God began to fill the atmosphere. Florence was in awe at what she was experiencing and I’ll never forget her words. She said, “I don’t know what is happening to me but it feels like the music is electric and it is going right through my body”. As the anointing continued to ascend I explained to her that she was feeling the presence of God. The Holy Spirit wants to visit every one of us in our everyday lives. Many of you will begin to experience His manifest presence in your homes, your cars, your prayer times and in your dreams.
There were several instances in the bible when the glory of God came into a room and the people were so overwhelmed that they were not even able to stand up. In 2 Chronicles chapter five, the Ark of the Covenant was brought into Solomon’s temple. King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted. The priests sanctified themselves and were clothed in white linen. There were Levites, singers with cymbals, stringed instruments and harps, along with one hundred and twenty priests sounding trumpets. But notice what happened in verse thirteen.
When the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord saying “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever”, then the house of the Lord was filled with a cloud so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the Glory of the Lord filled the house of God.
The Lord is about to visit us once again with His manifest presence. He is about to send His Shekinah Glory. He is going to release His anointing in such a mighty way that whole congregation will be intoxicated when the Holy Spirit enters the room. There will be personal encounters as He meets with us in the secret place. Religious traditions will be annihilated in His glory, bondages will be broken and strongholds will be torn down. He will bring those of us who know Him to a greater level, and multitudes who don't know Him will experience His awe.
He will breathe upon the dry and barren places. Those who are spiritually dead will be raised and restored to new life. Those who are sick will be healed in His presence. Old wineskins will be renewed into new wineskins to hold the new wine. Don’t fear the unknown. Don’t resist His glory and don’t quench His Spirit. He will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh as churches and congregations receive this transition. They will receive a new and fresh outpouring. Shake off all spiritual lethargy and prepare your hearts for this spiritual awakening as Jesus is about to reveal His glory to us in an unprecedented way.
2 Chronicles 5:14
So that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.
The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the Lord Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the Lord Almighty."
Acts 2: 17
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.
