"A Time of increase of abundance, and fruitfulness by His Mighty Power" by Keith Miller

In Genesis 26:32 we find the story of Isaac re-digging the last well, and the last well is Shebah. This word Shebah also means “the well of seven, the well of covenant, and the well that brings abundant satisfaction.” In other words, that last well that they re-dug and made flow with water again was the well of covenant with the Lord. Such a well will release the Holy Spirit, the fullness of the seven-fold flow of Isaiah 11:2.  As that Shebah well begins to flow, we will experience what Jesus promised in John 4:14—fountains of living water flowing out of us. In Isaiah 12:3, it says, “Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” The word salvation here is translated from the Hebrew word Yeshua. The center and essence of all of this is only true through and by our wonderful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 
In John 7:37–38, Jesus said that we would know rivers of living water because of the fountain, and these rivers of living water would flow for us. These rivers of living water are found in Isaiah 11:2; they are the seven-fold flow of the Holy Spirit. Because the Spirit of the Lord is upon us, the river of God’s wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and fear of the Lord will flow in us in a mighty way. We will see literally thousands of believers begin to function in this flow. Not only will they live in the wonderful sealing of the Holy Spirit, being sealed with His presence, and the abiding of the presence of the Holy Spirit, being led, taught, anointed, and gifted by the Holy Spirit, but they will also have the rivers of the Spirit spring up in them and flow mightily!
We see this illustrated in Isaiah 41: The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, their tongues fail for thirst. I, the Lord, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, the myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine and the box tree together, that they may see and know, and consider and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it(Isaiah 41:17–20).
People who begin to flow out of His rivers will see wells of salvation spring up. The lost will be drawn to the fountain, the same fountain that we have also drunk from, and we can say to them, “Come, drink from this well.” And as they do, they will experience the words of Jesus in John 4:14. As they drink from His water, He will put a fountain within them. Too many believers are only enjoying little buckets of water. Jesus doesn’t want us to just have a little bit every once in a while. He invites us to draw deeply from the well of salvation with joy, and He wants the rivers to flow from within us. He wants us to live fully activated, drawing deep and moving and flowing and functioning out of all that He supplies to us so that we will succeed and prosper in the things He’s called us to do. In the land, He will take our lives and reveal His glory (see Ps. 85:9). When He reveals this, He will be like a magnet to thousands of people all through the nations, and thousands upon thousands will be born again.
I’m ready for meetings where hundreds get born again! I’m ready to see the people we’ve been praying for come and drink from the river! I’m ready to see the well of salvation spring up. I’m ready to see people come and drink from the well that brings abundant satisfaction. I also want to see believers learn how to draw deeply from the well of Yeshua that brings abundant satisfaction from the river of His pleasure.
This is the beginning of that season. According to John 15:5, it’s going to be a fruitful season. It’s going to be a powerful season. Bearing much fruit, as is described in John 15:5, doesn’t happen because we do more works. It is the result of increase in His power. That is what produces the fruit. It’s about getting the supply that produces the fruit, and that’s what the rivers are. Trees can’t bear fruit without being watered.
Because of this, I believe it’s going to be a powerful season of hunger for the revelation of the Word. I believe this is a season of increase, abundance, and fruitfulness that will bring harvest for our lives. I believe the well of the seven will flow mightily in the coming days. I believe this will be a time of recovery of lost things.
I believe that as we behold God’s glory, we will also encounter His goodness. And as we encounter His goodness, He will bring recovery and restoration of things we’ve lost in the previous season. I believe that as we are going through the gate of a New Year, a gate of the seven, that God’s going to supply everything we need to live victoriously. As a result, we will reveal the glory of the Lord, and all the earth will become full of the knowledge of His goodness and His glory. By the display of His power in His people’s lives, unbelievers will be provoked to jealousy, and they’ll begin to call on the name of Jesus Christ. 

I believe there’ll be literally thousands of believers, even in the next 18 months, who will know new levels of God’s power and authority and will experience the seven-fold flow of the Holy Spirit.
