A Harvest You Didn’t Plant

On Saturday morning while enjoying my quiet time with the Lord in prayer and worship, I opened my Bible and when I looked at where it opened to, I heard the voice of the Lord pronounce something so clearly. Open in my Bible was Galatians 6 and the title of that section was, “We Harvest What We Plant.” As I read it, the Lord declared in a booming voice in the room, “YOU WILL HARVEST WHAT YOU DIDN’T PLANT.” 

I began to inquire of the Lord His meaning in that statement. I am not a foreigner to the understanding of sowing and reaping. I am also not one to think it odd that He would make such a bold statement contrary to what Paul wrote when writing his letter to the Galatians, for He is the One Who does all things impossible and beyond our comprehension. I am even further not surprised that He spoke this because He has over the past few months sporadically stated and revealed the same thing, in varying ways; whether through words or visions. As I sought Him, He spoke the following:

“NOW is the time that you will step into the new and the unheard of! NOW is the time that you will step into a new harvest! NOW is the time that you will harvest what you didn’t plant! NOW is the time that the natural order of things no longer is the only way; for I am making a new way! A harvest has sprung up that you didn’t plant in a land that has been sown into before you. It is a land that you didn’t know was even yours as an inheritance.”

As I read the first section of chapter 6 in Galatians, I sensed what the Lord was hinting at in His “NOW Word”. He was drawing emphasis to verse 9 and I have shared a few versions below to expand your understanding before I expound upon my revelation:

Galatians 6:9
(AMP) Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.”
(TPT) And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!”
(MSG) “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit.”

When I began to really study the verse, I discovered some very key things to know and understand, to really get what the Lord said to me. I know that there are many who feel like they have been through the ringer, through the fire, through the storm; and for some, may even feel as if they have been battered and beaten in the process…perhaps, even too broken to recover. I’m going to break down this verse before I share a deeper word.

The verse in the Greek would read, “And [in] well doing not we should grow weary in time for due we will reap a harvest not giving up.” The phrase “we should grow weary” is derived from two words meaning “to be faint or weary, in heart.” They denote “losing heart, or being negatively influenced with the outcome of experiencing inner weariness.” 

One of the most important parts of this verse I believe, is the next phrase, “in time.” The word for this is “KAIROS”, meaning “fitting season, the right moment, favorable moment, opportune time, opportunity.” It comes from the word, “kara”, which means “head.” This is saying that things are “COMING TO A HEAD”, or to “take full advantage of.” 

The word “due” means “one’s own, property.” “We will reap a harvest” is referring to “receiving a reward for well-doing.” The word “not” is like an “if, then” conditional statement. The last part, “giving up” means “to let go, unloose, release.”

In this revelation of verse 9, I believe that in this hour God is saying, “Do not allow yourselves to become swayed by the circumstances surrounding you, nor identify with them. Do not allow heartsickness to cause you to relinquish what has been designated as your own inheritance, for NOW THINGS ARE COMING TO A HEAD! It is time to take full advantage of the favor of My face, the open doors set before you, of the season of outpouring I have ordained for you. DO NOT under any circumstance, let go of My promises, for they WILL always come to pass, bearing fruit. IF you do not turn away from Me, THEN I will pour out double the recompense for your troubles, double the blessing for your obedience and steadfastness, AND I will bless you beyond your wildest dreams. DO NOT MISS THIS MOMENT! SEIZE IT WITH ALL OF YOUR BEING!”

Beloved, NOW IS THE TIME to not let go! NOW IS THE TIME to take hold of what is AT HAND! DO NOT LET the enemy of your souls win and steal your destiny from you!!!

I read a post this morning on Facebook about the wondrous works of God when we do not give up; and I saw a comment from a woman that brought deep sorrow in my spirit for the body of Christ in the face of adversity. She said that ‘she just didn’t have it in her and couldn’t do it anymore, that she had been through too much to keep going.’ She had given up. The enemy has arisen in this hour to throw out every punch, jab, throw, and weapon in his desperate attempt to thwart the destinies of God over His Bride; and it infuriates me. It infuriates me that he has violated, assaulted, and silenced the children of God to the point of defeat.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:7-8, (TPT) And as you go, preach this message: ‘Heaven’s Kingdom realm IS ACCESSIBLE, CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH.’ You must CONTINUALLY bring healing to lepers and to those who are sick, and MAKE IT YOUR HABIT to BREAK OFF the demonic presence from people, and raise the dead back to life. FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED the power of the Kingdom, SO FREELY RELEASE it to others.” 

THIS is what we were made for! The only way that we don’t have Kingdom authority and power, Heaven’s backing, angelic assistance, and victory is if we set our focus on defeat and give it up. I feel the stern warning of the Father saying, “DO NOT relinquish this call! If you do, you become another destiny snuffed out by the enemy. This goes beyond you! If you give up, you have not only relinquished YOUR destiny, but you have aided in the enemy’s stake at the souls from your intended harvest, as well as others’. He doesn’t just win with taking you out, but he will not stop until he takes out your harvest! DO NOT QUIT!!!”

FATHER, MAY WE CHOOSE TO SET OUR FOCUS ON YOU, JESUS! The storms of this life amount to nothing when our eyes are fixed on You, the Author and the Finisher of our Faith! It is then that we will fulfill ALL that You have destined and created us for! It is then that we will see the world ignited with Burning Ones, set ablaze with the Undaunted Ones, and see the fullness of the reward of Your suffering returned to You, Jesus!

Hebrews 12:1-3 (SMG)
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means WE’D BETTER GET ON WITH IT. Strip down, start running—and NEVER QUIT! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS, Who both began and finished this race we’re in. STUDY HOW He did it. Because HE NEVER LOST SIGHT OF WHERE HE WAS HEADED—that exhilarating finish in and with God—He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now He’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility He plowed through. THAT will shoot adrenaline into your souls!”

Now, I bring things full circle to the original Word of the Lord at the beginning of this post. When we truly grasp these truths above, that WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS and that WE DO POSSESS EVERYTHING WE NEED TO FULFILL OUR DESTINY AS WE SEEK HIM IN THE SECRET PLACE; we are able to gather in the harvest of our own labors, AND ALSO the harvest of souls born from the toils of the pioneers gone before you!

John 4:37-38
(MSG) “The Harvester isn’t waiting. He’s taking His pay, gathering in this grain that’s ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. That’s the truth of the saying, ‘This one sows, that one harvests.’ I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others.”
(TPT) And this confirms the saying, ‘One sows the seed and another reaps the harvest.’ I have sent you out to harvest a field that you haven’t planted, where many others have labored long and hard before you. And now you are privileged to profit from their labors and reap the harvest.”

Prophecy: Dawn of the Sent Ones

Photo: Unknown

While praying last night to the Lord, I heard very clearly His voice saying,

“THE DAWN OF THE SENT ONES IS UPON US! The time has come for My Sent Ones to be unleashed! For a time you have been in the wilderness of preparation, and NOW IS THE TIME OF THRUSTING, of EKBALLO!

What the enemy intended to be a derailment of purpose and destiny, I have turned around for double recompense. Where the enemy sought to destroy, I have commanded victory for My children and the enemy will suffer double the defeat. What was once going to be a difficult road to plow, resulting in much toiling and labor, has become a LANDSCAPE OF HARVEST! Yes, gaze ahead and see the fields that are RIPE FOR HARVEST!!!

In the wilderness of preparation, I have been stripping off every weight and hidden snare that the enemy would have chosen to try and trip you up and to bind you on your path. I brought you into a place of deep hiding, where it seemed as if the world as you knew it was turned upside down; where it seemed as if every door that was once wide open to you in ministry, relationships, finances, favor, were being slammed shut in your face. I have heard the cries of My children, crying out from a place of deep desperation. Each and every tear shed in this season has not fallen to the ground unnoticed or forgotten. I have caught every single one and hold them dear to My heart.

Where the enemy took the opportunity to whisper in your ear during this quiet season that your destiny has been lost, forgotten, and forsaken, I have been there close beside you in every moment, echoing into the halls of your eternity: DO NOT GIVE UP! DO NOT GIVE IN! YOU’RE ALMOST THERE! THE TIME TO PUSH IS NOW! YOUR BIRTHING IS HERE! YOUR DAWN OF RELEASE IS UPON YOU! You’re in the threshold of the ring of Fire, of transition; and if you will HOLD STEADFAST AND KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME, you will burst through the doorways of destiny with monumental force and breakthrough, making quite an entrance! Now is not the time to decide to abort the baby- now is not the time to give up or grow weary in the mission and purpose! It’s coming whether you like it or not; the only way you could abort your destiny is IF YOU CHOOSE to give up! Only then will it fall to the ground. If you give up, you will not only miss out on the INCREDIBLE BLESSINGS, FRUIT, THRILL, and JOY OF THE FULFILLMENT, but someone else will have to come along and pick it up to carry it to completion and reap the benefits of their YES.

Again, I say to you, THE DAWN IS UPON YOU! Do you not see the rays of sunlight rising upon the horizon? Gaze forth and be amazed at the beauty of it! To those with eyes to see, you will gaze out in not the distance, but the nearness of the uniquely designed destiny painted before you. Receive the blessings of obedience that are always greater than the sacrifices made. OH, THE JOY THAT IS HERE NOW!

Step up, and step out into all that I have released upon the wings of the wind. Fly with Me in a higher dimension, soaring high above it all! You will see from an aerial view, all that has been laid before you. Yes, you will see not in part, but in full vision and will be able to carry the vision to the greatest completion!”

Joel‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭(NLT‬‬)
It is a day of darkness and gloom, a day of thick clouds and deep blackness. Suddenly, like dawn spreading across the mountains, a great and mighty army appears. Nothing like it has been seen before or will ever be seen again.
‭‭
Isaiah‬ ‭60:1-3‬ ‭(AMP)‬‬
Arise [from spiritual depression to a new life], shine [be radiant with the glory and brilliance of the Lord]; for your light has come, and the glory and brilliance of the Lord has risen upon you. For in fact, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness will cover the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you [Jerusalem] and His glory and brilliance will be seen on you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

Galatians‬ ‭6:9‬ ‭(TPT)‬‬
And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!

Galatians‬ ‭6:9-10‬ (‭MSG‬‬)
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.

High-Yield Investment

Daily Encouragement – 

Do you have what it takes? Is it in you? Are you a good investment?

I have planted many good seeds of My Kingdom within you. I have cultivated and fertilized each one of these investments with My blessings from Heaven. Every blessings, promise, and word are investments I have placed within you to bring forth a good return for The Kingdom. I have not blessed you because you have earned it or deserve it (you do not). Your life is an investment for Me and My Kingdom. 

I expect a high-yield return from the continual blessings I have lavished upon you. You will always bring forth some type of fruit in your life. Make sure you are bearing the good fruit of The Kingdom and not the wild fruit of the world.  Your purpose and destiny is to bear good fruit. My blessings will not continue forever to bring forth wild crops. 

Come to Me and bear the fruit you were designed to. Watch as My blessings increase in your life. I will continually sow My blessings into good investments. You are a good investment as you walk with Me more and more. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 5:1-2 “… My Well-beloved has a vineyard On a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, And planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, And also made a winepress in it; So He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes

Vs. 4 
What more could have been done to My vineyard That I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, Did it bring forth wild grapes?

Good Fruit

Daily Encouragement – 

What seeds have you sown? What choices have you made? What is the reward coming to you as a result? 

Every action has a reward, a fruit, some good some bad. My desire is for you to be completely saved, healed, delivered, blessed! However, this only comes as you obey My word. 

The fruit of obedience to My Word is abundant life! Never let your actions or words be against Me or for the enemy. When you get to the point where you openly speak against Me and My ways, you are in trouble. 

No matter what level, if you do wrong, your reward and fruit will come to you. Good fruit comes from humility and obedience to Me. Disobedience will bring bad fruit even if your sinful pride would disagree. 

Come to Me, change the seed you are sowing, and reap the abundant life I desire for you!!! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 3:8-11 “For Jerusalem stumbled, And Judah is fallen, Because their tongue and their doings Are against the Lord, To provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, And they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves. “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Self-Help???

Daily Encouragement – 

What are you saying? What are you doing? Are you speaking out My words or your own? Are you walking in My way or doing your own thing? Whose power are you walking in? 

The rise of self-help books is amusing to Me. In all your human strength, intellect, and self-control; you cannot change your selfish, sinful flesh. You will always think you know better and can do better if you try harder. Do not be foolish! 

Change only comes as you line yourself up with Me and My Word!  Come to Me! I have done the hard work of living a completely selfless, sinless life. Follow Me in My Way and receive all the blessings and life I gained by doing this! Why would you restlessly struggle to survive doing your own thing? 

Come to Me and enjoy the fruit of The Kingdom I have waiting for you!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 44:16-17 “As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! 17 But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth…”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Don’t Show Your Backside!!!

Daily Encouragement –

Do you know Me? Have you heard and obeyed My word? Have you turned away to hide your face from Me? Do you know I love you no matter what? 

Anger, fear, shame, selfish lust… these things and so many more cause you to turn from Me. You may be trying to hide the guilt of your sin, but in turning from Me, you turn from The Way, Truth, and Life and begin down another path. 

Your sin does not surprise Me, but it does hurt. I sent Jesus to pay the price for your sin so even in the midst of it, you may come to Me and receive forgiveness. You never have to turn away from Me. I always desire you to come to Me and speak face to face. I want to cleanse your heart and give you one way to follow Me. 

No matter what happens, I desire you to turn to Me, fully and completely!!! I will not turn from you if you do not turn from Me. I will joyfully plant and bring forth fruit in you and bless you with all I have if you walk with Me and never turn away!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 32:33 “And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them,yet they have not listened to receive instruction.”

Vs. 38-41“They shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. 41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’”
