God created us as individuals and simultaneously prepared something specific for each of us to do. We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
There is considerable fussing and fuming over apostles and apostleship these days. When a topic like apostleship becomes trendy, some who are not really called or graced as apostles—for a variety of unsanctified reasons—try to be apostles. Others, who are genuinely graced and called, prematurely attempt to make their own place within an old religious system rather than waiting upon the Lord to reveal His divine intention for them and their servanthood.
I hear the voice of the Lord! I'm telling you, I hear the sound of rain. I'm seeing rain in the desert. I'm seeing rain where it never rained! I'm hearing the sound of Heaven. I'm hearing the majesty of the King, and I hear Him saying, "Grace! Grace I will pour out unto you. Grace I will give you. Oh Church, rise up in grace. The throne of grace is open to you."

I do not get these kinds of dream/visions very often, but when I do, it is very vivid, stays with me and proves to be most accurate. For the entire day immediately before I received this vision I was very quiet and almost withdrawn. It almost felt as if a spirit of heaviness was upon me and I had no idea what was about to unfold. I could, however, sense that some great thing was going to happen.
