The Spirit of God shown me a vision a massive storm approaching. There were dark clouds, heavy rain and people being soaked and drenched unexpectedly. Many in the vision were looking around perplexed and confused. I could hear them saying why wasn’t we made aware of the heavy rain that was coming? We could have been prepared and brought along our umbrellas. This storm came suddenly and came down heavily that even with umbrellas could have withstand the down pour. I saw many people soaked and drenched.

There was no parts on them left dry. Then suddenly out of nowhere the sun broke through and a rainbow appeared. I asked the Lord what was this He was showing me and the Lord said that this storm was not of the enemy but the rain that was summoned by the prayers of His people. It was an indicator of what was happening in their spiritual life but now it is about to happening in the natural.

This rain was prayed for. God told me that it’s a rain of revival, rain of glory, rain of restoration, rain of healing, rain of miracles, rain of breakthrough, rain of power, rain of resources, rain of favor and blessings. Many times in the Old Testament God would come down in a dark cloud and speak. Clouds also represented God’s glory, appearance and dark clouds even represented His judgment. God said that He was not coming to judge but to bless.

This was a “glory cloud” of divine blessings that was coming as a reminder that He has not forgotten or forsaken you. After the flood in the days of Noah, God restored, replenished and reestablished His covenant with His people and there was a sign in the heavens of His “bow” which was the “rainbow.” God spoke to me that after the storm that has come in His people lives, there is going to be covenant breakthroughs of divine favor in every area of their lives.

I asked God what does He mean and He said for example if there is storms in the area of finance, family, church growth, and etc. than after the storm His people will begin to experience glory like never before in that area. The storm may appear to be the working of the enemy but God says that the storm He is sending is the answered prayers that has reached Heaven and now heaven is about to respond with the floodgates. God told me that He is releasing His seven-fold Spirit upon those who has endured and that after the rain, they will be mantled with glory. He is going to activate in His people seven shades or facets of His glory to them.

Have you ever seen a rainbow? Sometimes when the sun is shining and it is rainy somewhere at the same time, you can see a rainbow. It’s a huge arch of colors in the sky. It’s caused by the light from the sun being broken up by water droplets in the atmosphere. The sun’s light is “white”, but the water droplets break it up into seven different colors, always in this order: RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, WHITE, and VIOLET. God is releasing Seven shades of glory to His church in a greater capacity.

“And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth . . . and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Genesis 9:12, 15, HBFV)

In Ezekiel’s first vision from God, known as the “wheel in the middle of a wheel” vision, the prophet compares it to the glory of God to what he saw. The prophet saw something prophetic that I believe there is much to see from this and what’s going on in the spiritual realm. I believe God was showing me that we are about to embark on something great in the days to come.

The floodgates are opening and God’s glory is about to be revealed to His people in a new way. He is reestablishing His covenant with those who will seek Him in this hour to advance the Kingdom. God showed me the storm first, then a rainbow which illustrated His “Sevenfold Spirits”

The “Seven Spirits” shows the sevenfold ministry of the Spirit as depicted in the Book of Isaiah. As it is written: “The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD, and He will delight in the fear of the Lord.” Isaiah 11:2-3 (NASB).

These are:

1. the Spirit of the Lord,

2. the Spirits of wisdom,

3. of understanding,

4. of counsel,

5. of might,

6. of knowledge and

7. of fear of the LORD,

Here are represented the Seven Spirits, which are before the throne of God. The reference to the lamb in Revelation 5:6 relates it to the Seven Spirits which first appear in Revelation 1:4 and are connected with Jesus who holds them along with seven stars.

I believe that God is showing me a new measure, mantle, anointing, and influence that is coming to His body in a new way that speaks of the seven graces (“charisma”) spoken of in Romans 12:6-8 which also make reference to the seven spirits of God. The Holy Spirit manifest these graces, reflecting the seven spirits of the Lord. The seven graces are:

1) Prophetic insight and revelation;

2) ministry of helps (serving);

3) Apostolic Instruction (teaching);

4) prophetic encouragement, edification and exhortation;

5) ministry of giving (sowing);

6) spirit of leadership, wisdom, direction, oversight, to govern, rule; and

7) Love, compassion, sincere, genuine authentic.


God is going to release the rain before He will release the glory. God told me to tell His people that He has not forgot His promises concerning them. Get ready for a glory invasion coming to your life. Just like a rainbow has seven colors and shades, God likened it to me as “The Seven fold Spirit of God” that is coming to His people.

Revelation 4:1-6 “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.”

God showed me the meaning spiritually of the seven shades of glory that is coming:

1. Red: represents divine protection in every area of your life through the blood of Jesus.

2. Yellow: divine influence, affluence and visibility in God as you are the light of the world.

3. Orange: divine zeal, compassion, and the fire of the Lord to move supernaturally in the Spirit.

4. Green: is divine wealth, prosperity, favor, health and new life (joy, peace and righteousness in the Holy Spirit.

5. Blue: is divine prophetic revelation, insight, vision, dreams and spiritual heavenly encounters

6. Purple: divine royalty, justice, power, crown of life and authority.

7. White: represents God’s divine purity and the cleansing of our sins thru God’s grace.
