(Jason Tanksley) During worship on a recent Sunday morning at Impact International of Bristol, the Lord began to reveal a vision to me. I saw an oil field, abundant and flowing with rich oil. Separating the surface and the reservoir of oil was a layer of hard rock. In my spirit, I knew the rock was slate. As I began to pray over what I was seeing, I saw the ground being broken up. The breaking started first on the surface level and then moved to penetrating deeper into the ground.
As it reached the slate, the breaking began to slow down. It did however, remain persistent. The slate began to break and give way as this unseen force drove through each layer. Like a spiritual jackhammer, this supernatural “breakthrough” penetrated through the slate and drew closer to the flowing river of oil underneath. Suddenly, contact was made as the last segment of earth relinquished to this relentless force.
The oil then literally exploded through to the surface of the ground as if it were under intense pressure. It became an “oil gusher” with a constant and powerful surge.The Lord began to say, “The oil is a deeper level of My anointing, a deeper level of healing and deliverance. The oil is the manifestation of revival. The hard rock or slate separates many from reaching the reservoir of My next level of anointing. The persistent force that broke through from the surface through the slate and made contact with the river of oil is the continual intercessory prayers and the sacrifice of praise and worship. The breaking through is the times of fasting and the released prophetic words.” CONTINUE
