Heal the Waters of Death and Barrenness

Elisha’s Spring at Jericho

A new day is dawning…

Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says Yehovah: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’ ” So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke. 2 Kings 2:21-22

For several years I have heard in my spirit that Yehovah is transitioning from the days of Elijah to days of Elisha. What does that mean? We call our ministry Elisha Vision because he could see in the spirit and prayed for his servant who could then also see. Even though they were surrounded by the Syrian army, they saw that God’s angel army surrounded the Syrians. Elisha told his servant that there were “more with us than with them.” The New Testament often calls us to have “eyes to see and ears to hear.”

But the verse quoted above reveals a deeper understanding of Elisha. After he received Elijah’s mantle, he came back to the Jordan river and cried:”Where is the God of Elijah?” He then struck the water and crossed over on dry land. Three days later as he waited in Jericho, the men of the city appealed for him to heal their bitter spring, which he did. There would be no more death or barrenness and it is healed to this day.

In January 1990 I had the joy of stopping at that very spring, with my friend Duane, to fill our water bottles for a sojourn into the Egyptian desert. I can report that the water in that spring is still sweet!

Elijah means “God is Yehovah.” Elisha means “God is Yeshua!” We are moving into a new era in Messiah Yeshua in this day. Elisha was used for several resurrections. Jesus is the resurrection and the life! If John the baptist was Elijah, then Jesus was Elisha. This new day will be characterized by supernatural power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. Yehovah will heal the waters of death and barrenness. And he will use us… Where are the Elishas?

A friend, Juanita, in our home group recently shared a dream that kept repeating in a loop all night. She saw a withered crippled hand that was gradually healed and made whole. She kept dreaming it over and over that night, but wondered what it meant. The Lord gave me the interpretation that it represented the body of Christ that has been weak and impotent. But God is healing the hand, His Hand, so we can touch people and bring the healing of the water of death and bitterness. We will see salvation, physical healing and miracles. We will see relational restoration and emotional healing. The key is to touch people. We are His Hand extended to a fallen, hurting world. With resurrection life, we will see unprecedented fruitfulness for His purpose.

After Elisha died, a dead man was thrown into the cave of Elisha’s bones and the man was raised back to life, by contact with Elisha’s bones. After Jesus died, His resurrection life was made available to all who would touch Him and follow Him. As for me and my house, we will follow Yehovah and His Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain, and please pray for me as I write a new (untitled) book on the Elisha anointing. Thank you.
