The Valley of Shittum

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim. (Joe 3:18)

The last few days, I have been praying for “new wine”. Not the new wine that I experienced from 1998-2001, for to my understanding, that is now “old wine”. It has sat in the barrel long enough to be called so. When I woke up this morning and opened my Bible, God spoke to me and said look up “New Wine”.. which I did. The first verse was the above Joel 3:18, the key verse He wished to show me. It flashed through my mind that I have experienced two moves.. the so called “charismatic” move and the “soaking and healing” move.

Since I had been asking for new wine, or a new move, God revealed to me this Scripture and how it applies to the next move. The “valley of Shittim” was the place where.. “This marked the last camping-ground of Israel before they crossed the Jordan to begin the conquest of Western Palestine” (ISBE). Like then, as is now, His people are now positioned at this valley, and He is putting all the elements and conditions in place.

Joel 3:18 shows that “ that day” (day=yome, “to be hot”), ..the mountains shall “..drop down” (naw-taf’, to ooze), “ wine”, shall flow “..with milk” (khaw-lawb’, richness).

So, as for those who are now camped at the valley of Shittim, waiting, they shall be given new revelation of their Lord and His kingdom. The spiritual divine truth of the New Testament shall be opened to the earth. It will be like a mountain meadow filled with multitudes of wild flowers, beautiful to behold and touch.
