Exactly 2 years ago on April 8th, 2018 Peter Kumar was in Victorville California ministering to our congregation. During this time he released two significant prophetic words over Apostle Michael Petro and the body – this directional prophecy was delivered with edification, encouragement, and stern warnings. All those who agreed to be used in what the Lord had in store were implored to stand with Apostle Michael Petro as a prophetic declaration. As the years have progressed we have already seen many things spoken in this prophecy come to pass. Two of these things being the television and media connections opening up worldwide, and the creation of new prophetic songs. We enter in with earnest expectation for the fulfillment of this prophecy that was set to begin during Passover of this year (2020).
“A time for sowing and watering”
Peter Kumar declared that the time leading up to this landmark date would be a season of transition, a time of planting and preparing ourselves for the incoming harvest.
Luke 8:11 states that the seed we are sowing is the Word of God within us. Jesus explained that although many are given this Seed, only those with a good ground produce fruit.
“But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience” (NKJV). Luke 8:15
We see that it’s not enough to simply hear the word, but we must keep it and bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves” (NKJV). James 1:22
“Your revelation is a movement and not a church.”
Why is this an important statement? If we look deeper, we see that the definition of a “church” according to the Strong’s Bible Dictionary comes from the word ekklēsía which means “a calling out.” Interestingly this definition is found again when Jesus stated in Matthew 22:14
“For many are called (ekklēsía), but few are chosen.”
The Lord was making a clear distinction, that He desires more than a congregation that is merely called. Those who answer the call and prepare themselves accordingly are the chosen who will bring the great last move of the Lord.
“2020, the time for reaping and transformation”
Peter said that God has shifted the season. The time for sowing and watering would be moving into a reaping season in 2 years time and this will bring transformation in many areas. The timeline for these events are very significant as this reaping time began during Passover. This eternal feast of the Lord was given as a remembrance of how the Israelite first born sons were spared from the spirit of death by using the blood of the lamb to mark their doorposts. This lamb was later revealed to be Jesus (Revelation 13:8). This is not just a historical event but a daily spiritual discipline to apply the life giving revelation (blood) to our doorpost (minds) to wash and transform us.
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin (NKJV). 1 John 1:7
“The Elisha’s will take the double portion of Elijah”
Peter Kumar also revealed that God was raising up 50 dependable people to take on a double portion of the mantle that God has put on Apostle Michael Petro. These Elisha’s will not be spectators and they will stand up with Elijah and be released in this season. In Hebrew understanding all names including “Elisha” and “Elijah” are not exclusively speaking of a physical person, but also relay the very character and function that they represent. Elijah was a prophet of the Lord who boldly challenged false prophets and stood against corrupt government leaders even in the face of death. Elisha was his faithful disciple who was blessed with a double portion of Elijah’s spirit and mantle to carry on his ministry. John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah as a precursor for Christ to prepare the people for His coming (Malachi 4:5-6). John the Baptist did not fulfill this prophecy as he was ultimately killed, and the people that he came to prepare rejected and crucified Christ (Matthew 17:10).
Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things” (NKJV).
This prophecy shows us how Jesus is moved with compassion for the harvest and is calling for more labourers to stand up and bring the kingdom of heaven to earth. Matthew 9:37 “Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (NKJV). Just as Jesus gathered His disciples and asked them to leave all and follow Him, the Lord is asking if we can do the same to spread the truth to all the earth. Will you be an Elisha in this season and take the fullness of the prophetic mantle? Revelations 19:7 states that the bride of Christ (His church) must prepare herself for marriage with Christ.
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready” (NKJV).
