Make this Valley Full of Ditches
By Mario Murillo
What happens in Los Banos now? I have already gone on record as saying that this is the greatest revival spirit that I have ever seen. So we just keep going this week right? No actually we are going to wait until Sunday September 7th.
This makes no sense. Stop the rallies at the peak of momentum? How can you stop when multitudes are being saved and healed? In the natural it makes no sense but in the world of the Spirit it makes perfect sense. This is because a strange and wonderful guidance from the Lord has come about Los Banos. These last few weeks were but a taste of His glory. He is providing a short period of preparation for the real glory and the real harvest.
Here is a story from the Bible that explains what God is doing: 2 Kings 3 beginning with verse 15: “‘But now bring me a musician.’ Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.16 And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ 17 For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ Then verse 20 says, “Now it happened in the morning, when the grain offering was offered, that suddenly water came by way of Edom, and the land was filled with water.”
3 Kings needed water for their armies to avert disaster. The prophet Elisha was called to save the day. They fully expected him to lead them to water but instead he said, “Make this valley full of ditches.” God wanted them to make a container for the miracle!
God had to stop us! Holy Spirit is saying to the army in Los Banos, “MAKE THIS VALLEY FULL OF DITCHES. We are to dig ditches to contain the massive miracle that is coming. By stopping we are not retreating we are advancing.
What do these ditches look like? We dig ditches in prayer, planning and preparation. If hundreds are saved we need to make nets to contain the catch. If meetings go on night after night we need to pace ourselves so that we do not grow weary in well doing. And finally, we must dig in and brace ourselves for the unexpected onslaught of the enemy.
The next few weeks are crucial to the outpouring of God Los Banos. We are making the greatest statement of faith imaginable. Here is our confession: “Lord You are about to send us rain, harvest and blessing on a massive scale. We are going to contain it!
This is an opportunity that we cannot waste. God is about to show up on a level of power that is like nothing any of us have ever seen before. Pastors do not shrink back from your duty! Ignite the people, give them their marching orders. Tell them it is now or never.
