A Frog-Strangler Is Coming

Kenneth Copeland
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive.)

A spiritual flood is coming! As we would say in West Texas, we are in for a frog-strangler rain of the Holy Ghost, and it has already begun to fall!

The prophets of God have been prophesying about this rain for thousands of years. Of course, they don’t call it a frog-strangler like I do. They call it “the former and latter rain,” an outpouring of the Spirit that combines the power of the Old Covenant with the power of the New Covenant manifesting, all at the same time.

As a believer, you are a vessel that contains God’s power and Glory. A vessel is a pitcher that you pour from. That means you’re the spout where the Glory comes out!

Now, let me ask you this…According to John 7:38-39, where did Jesus say the rivers of the Spirit would flow? From inside the belly (or heart) of believers. Where does the Holy Spirit reside? Inside believers.

So where will this final dynamic supernatural flood of power come from in these last days?

You’ve got it—it will flow forth from the spirit of believers. From Holy Ghost-filled people like you and me!

“But, wait a minute,” you say. “We’re talking about signs and wonders of global proportions here. We’re talking about a flood that will cover the whole earth with God’s Glory. How could something of that magnitude come from one person like me?”

It won’t. It will come from all of us together. It will come as the Holy Spirit river flowing out of you joins up with the Holy Spirit river flowing out of me. Then our rivers will come together with the rivers of millions of other believers.

It will come when, like those disciples in the upper room, we start praying in one accord—when we stop fussing with one another and begin to agree with one another and come into unity of faith.

Your natural mind might have a hard time grasping that such a thing is even possible. But it is. What’s more, it will happen because the Bible says so (Ephesians 4:13). And when it does, we’ll see the same things the early Church saw when they were in one accord—and greater things.

Signs and wonders will start following us. Some crippled fellow sitting outside the church building will get healed because a believer jerked him up by the hand and said, “In the Name of Jesus, rise and walk!” Then he’ll start jumping up and down, and running through town telling how he’s been healed—and 5,000 people will get saved in a day. I’m telling you…it will be a frog-strangler rain of the Holy Ghost!

Speak the Word

“I believe in Jesus and in the Spirit of God. Therefore, out of my belly flow rivers of living water.”  (John 7:38-39)
