To Spain for the Glory of His Name

On September 14, 2018, while in prayer, I heard a powerful and deafening wind like that of which was broadcasted live of Hurricane Florence. In prayer about it, I was reminded of Ezekiel 37 that the Lord spoke to us during our time in Spain in February 2014, titled: The Mighty Wind and the Dry Bones. You can read it in the link.

As I prayed into revelation of this wind, I heard the Lord say:

“For far too long, Spain has been filled with dry bones, and what life has remained was so inclusive and unaware of the lifeless remnants that could use their life. I have been at work in many various ways, reassembling broken parts and laying them out in proper order; so that at the right time when My Sent Ones arrive , they may call forth life and awakening to not just empty shells but also the stagnant, idle ones. As you stand and overlook the valley, behold, you will see a new thing! Stand firm, and prophesy My breath, yes, My Spirit to come sweeping over the land. Truly, not only will there be a shaking and a quaking in the spiritual, but the earth will respond. The sound of My voice calling forth life will harken an awakening and arising like never before. Do you hear it now? Yes, My Spirit has gone before you and you will see My goodness in the land of the living. What was once taxing and laborious will now be easy. What was once impossible is made possible. Years of toiling and laboring have not been in vain. Gaze forth and see with your own eyes, shoots are sprouting up now. A mighty army is being assembled; ones that will rise up to the task, unwavering and immovable. No longer will foreigners occupy most of your land and be the ones flourishing. You will see your own standing tall and strong, bearing much fruit. The revelation of the knowledge of My Son will arise upon you like the Dawn, bringing awakening upon its wings.”

Today, I, Katie, head out on my first solo trip to Spain and I will share more when I have time, since I am about to board the plane, the word I received from the Lord recently over Spain. But for now, I leave you with this word I finally feel released to share. I believe that Spain is ripe for revival and for far too long, there have been dry bones of religion running amok in the land. But I prophesy that not only are the dry bones coming to life, but there is a mighty army assembling in the land that will overthrow demonic strongholds in nations, carry forth fire to Europe and regions beyond. Where Spain was once known as the ‘ends of the earth’, they will now go forth to the ends of the earth for the name of Jesus!

Press In and Press Through Till There’s Breakthrough: A Call to Fast and Pray!

Early yesterday morning as I sat in prayer and to seek the Lord, He began to speak to me. For me, one of the biggest ways that He speaks to me is when I submit myself to His leading and His voice, by putting pen to paper. Yesterday was no different.

I felt such a strong pressing of this word and of it’s imperative timely status in the spirit. A kairos moment is upon us! I very much sensed that in the days leading up to Pentecost on June 9, that Father is bringing forth from Heaven a slim window of opportunity to the Body of Christ to see promises revealed transform into promises fulfilled. This has become increasingly apparent to me in the past few weeks and the urgency of the hour at hand is increasing as well.

This is what He said:

“NOW IS THE TIME in which the windows of Heaven are open and My blessings are being released in great proportion. NOW IS THE TIME in which My angelic messengers are carrying forth into the earth promises longed for, hoped for, prayed for, and warred for. There is an opened access door into the storehouses of Heaven to deliver that which was once blocked of release.

BEWARE of a slumbering presence that seeks to hinder the release and to stall the revealing! It seeks to blind and conceal with darkness, the revelation of divine release.

I tell you truly, IF you will commit to set your gaze, focus, and sights upon My Kingdom in this hour, THEN  I will bring into you that which has been promised. I will send warring angels on your behalf to bring deliverance and divine release.

DARE TO DREAM BIG WITH ME!

DO NOT LET slumber fall to your eyelids lest you remain blinded and fail to receive that which is coming on the clouds!

STAY AWAKE AND STAY UP WITH ME!!!

Circle your promises and keep circling them until I give the signal for every demonic delay to come toppling down; yes, crumbling down!!!”

Beloved, we MUST NOT allow this moment to pass us by! We must not be like those who in Jesus’ day, dwelt among THE ANSWER to every prophecy they had held onto for hundreds of years; and yet, they were completely blinded to the reality that their Savior stood right in front of them. Even His own disciples, His closest friends, doubted His resurrected existence as He stood among them.

It is time to strip off all unbelief, all doubt, all fear and complacency, every lie, and every deception that would blind us to His Presence and His activity in the earth at this moment and in the time to come!

I must share that something interesting occurred as I received this message from the Lord. The spirit of slumber attempted to overtake me. One could say, “Well, you had four hours of sleep! Of course that would happen!” I don’t disagree. However, this time was different. I was wide awake at 4:30 to seek Jesus and it was not until He began to release this word that I sensed the onslaught of this spirit. I discerned it’s presence and I warred for the Word, though my eyelids be heavy. To my husband, it probably would’ve been the gentlest of warring that he’s seen from me; not noticeable, even.

I believe something natural in the Kingdom of Heaven took place. Because I had submitted myself to Him to seek and receive, He fought for me. Because He saw my hunger and longing, He slayed the giants opposing me. I will say, most of, if not all of the word I received was written down with my eyes closed as I rested in He, Who fights my battles. He began to expose that which sought to hinder the release of the word was indeed, the ‘slumbering presence’ in which He spoke of.

As I dwelled on this word, He reminded me of a prophetic declaration and song that came forth from my lips two days ago, “Press in, and press through till there’s breakthrough!” 

He then led me back to the Gospel accounts I studied last week from Jesus’ encounter with His disciples, Peter, James, and John in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before He was betrayed by Judas and led to His crucifixion. I was wrecked last week of His interaction with His closest friends in their last moments together. He chose them to join Him in praying, for the hour was urgent to seek God.

Mark 14:33-35 says, “An intense feeling of great horror plunged His soul into deep sorrow and agony. And He said to them, ‘My heart is overwhelmed with anguish and crushed with grief. It feels as though I’m dying. STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME.’ He walked a short distance away, and being overcome with grief, He threw Himself facedown on the ground. He prayed that if it were possible, He would not have to experience this hour of suffering.Verse 37-38 says, Then He came back to His three disciples and found them all sound asleep. He awakened Peter and said to him, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Do you lack the strength to stay awake with Me for EVEN JUST AN HOURKeep alert and pray that you’ll be spared from this time of testing. For your spirit is eager enough, but your humanity is feeble.'”

They couldn’t stay awake for even ONE HOUR! Why?!?!?!?!

He did this three times, going off to pray in agony as though He were dying. Three times He returned to find His closest friends asleep. I believe He placed a test before them of their devotion to Him through any trial that may come. He chose them specifically to join Him in His secret place; however this time, they joined Him in what was probably the sole dark night of the soul in His life. I believe it was perhaps similar to Elijah’s test of Elisha in 2 Kings 2. Elisha prevailed in this test and not only saw His father taken into Heaven, but also received a double portion of Elijah’s mantle because he refused to depart from his father and was determined to receive what his Father had.

However, I do not believe the disciples passed Jesus’ test. They did not refuse to depart from Him in this moment where He obviously was like they had never seen Him be. They remained where they were and allowed Him to go on in solitude to cry out to God for relief from the cup He was to drink of. What if when He said, “STAY HERE AND KEEP WATCH WITH ME”, that it was actually a command to abide with Him and an invitation to join Him in His suffering? Luke 22:43-44 say that He called for an angel of glory to come and strengthen Him.” Would that have been necessary if they had joined Him?

Verses 39-42 state, “Then He left them a second time and went to pray the same thing. Afterward, He came back to the disciples and found them sound asleep, FOR THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. After praying for the third time, He returned to His disciples and awoke them again, saying, ‘Do you plan on sleeping and resting indefinitely? THAT’S ENOUGH SLEEP! THE END HAS COME AND THE HOUR HAS ARRIVED for the Son of Man to be handed over to the authority of sinful men. Get up and let’s go. DON’T YOU SEE? My betrayer draws near.'”

THEY COULDN’T KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN AND THEY DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO HIM. 

What came upon them and overtook them so greatly that they literally COULD NOT keep their eyes open and keep watch with Him and had no answer for Him as to why? I believe that it was the same slumbering spirit that Father spoke of in the message He gave me. It seeks to blind in darkness, the vision and provision of Heaven. The word for “keep watch” and “see” literally means, “to see in the spirit”. Jesus was not telling them to watch with their natural eyes, but to keep watch and guard with their spirit eyes. If it is allowed to operate, then it will block what is being released from Heaven to earth.

I believe that in this hour, Jesus is calling His Bride to band together, stand together, and contend together through a season of intense and intentional prayer, fasting, and seeking. There are promises that have been pent up and blocked from release but His promise is that if we will seek Him in these ways, that He will send His angels to remove the barriers that the release may come.

I truly believe that we are in a brief Daniel 10 moment of time. Just as Daniel set his face to pray and fast for the release of revelation of the vision, WE TOO, MUST SEIZE THIS MOMENT WITH ACTION! I believe that just as with Daniel, if we do this, we will be met by the same glowing man to dispatch angels of deliverance. He is Jesus.

Per the urging of the Lord, I am calling a 40-day fast beginning tomorrow, May 1st until Pentecost Sunday, June 9th. I strongly urge you to join me! If you have been contending for miracles, healing, salvations, promises, deliverance; NOW IS THE TIME!!! Just as He met His faithful ones who remained through the release of Holy Spirit and fire on Pentecost, I believe that He is bringing forth the same in this hour!!!

Ireland: Robes and Scrolls

Yesterday morning I saw a vision of the nation of Ireland from an aerial view. Suddenly, a mighty stirring took place and a great wind began to roar. Out of the sea arose a fierce dragon. It began to the south and though storms would normally continue their course out into the deep sea, this beast set its course northwest. When its eyes caught sight of Ireland, it took a hard right and barreled towards the west coast of Ireland, bent on devouring much within its fierce jaws; for its appetite was yet quenched. In an unexpected, unheard of occurrence and approach, the dragon advanced and was bent on satisfying its hunger. With teeth bared, snarling as it approached its target, suddenly a mighty hand arose up from the depths of the sea and stopped the dragon dead in its tracks; as it smashed into the hand like a brick wall. As it collided with the undaunted and powerful hand of opposition, it smashed and broke into scattered pieces in the sea. The grave threat to the Heart of Ireland was stifled and destroyed.

I heard the Lord say, “The enemy has set his sights on you, Ireland; and has set out to sift you like wheat. He has determined to devour you and swallow you up in your sin. Behold, the seas are stirring and rumbling as the clouds gather. What is looked at as an abnormality and a phenomenon will arise from the Celtic Sea and thunder towards the Heart of Ireland, for a body cannot survive without a beating heart. Yes, the beast hungers for your heart, Ireland! No amount of preparation could prepare you enough to save you from the teeth of the devourer. Truly, I declare, the only thing that can save you is My victorious right hand. NOW is the time to take heed the words of My prophets and to turn your face to Me and away from your wicked ways! I have established a remnant of righteousness within your walls to contend to and seek My hand on your behalf. They are the ones of power and of steadfastness. BUT, it is up to you, the course of your days to come. IF you will arise out of your I-land ways, THEN I will step in like a mighty warrior and make you MY-land again. I will stop fear and death in its tracks and restore you to your rightful place. I will return to you in ways unprecedented and in greater proportions than you have never seen before. Oh, do not take this warning offhandedly; but take it to heart and act as My Spirit directs.”

Then I saw from Heaven, a pair of massive hands holding a glimmering golden sword, point it downward and with great force, strike the heart of Ireland. As the sword struck the soil, it pierced to the core and great power surged from the sword of Heaven and a great wave swept across the land in a golden glow of outpouring and glory. The sound of the waves roared and on the crest of the waves rode the One Who is in charge the Angel Armies. He was clothed in the Glory of God, bearing a sword poised to the skies, Faithful and True was written upon Him, with Fire blazing in His eyes and a voice that rumbled throughout the realm of the spirit louder than a thousand thunders combined; causing the earth to quake and bow down before Him.

Following Him were a band of angels dispatched to carry out Kingdom assignments that had been laid down. In their hands, they held small, simple boxes. When they arrived at homes around the nation, they dropped off boxes on the doorsteps of those who had received the Call of God in times past; and for various reasons, chose to lay them down and take up the cloaks of ‘SELF’ — to appease one’s fleshly desires and hunger. The angels set the boxes down and would knock on the door, then fly off. As people answered their doors, they were wearing sleeping robes and written on them in bold black letters were words of the things they exchanged their call for — ‘bitterness’, ‘hatred’, ‘lust’, ‘indulgence’, ‘fear’, ‘unforgiveness’, ‘abortion’, ‘witchcraft’, ‘rebellion’, ‘unworthy’, ‘denial’. Upon each one’s eyes were sleeping masks so they couldn’t even see, they only heard.

As they began to feel around, many felt the boxes on the ground and picked them up. Some were so curious as to what was in the boxes that they took off the blinders and were shocked to find the very thing they had said “no” to in their hands again. Just then, the enemy crept in to try and shame many into throwing down their second chance at sonship and their destiny.

I could hear the voice of the Father crying out, “DON’T PUT DOWN WHAT I HAVE GIVEN YOU AGAIN! DON’T GIVE IN! DON’T GIVE UP YOUR GIFT! DON’T PUT YOUR SLUMBERING BACK ON! RIP OFF THAT CLOAK OF CONDEMNATION AND OPEN YOUR BOX OF DESTINY! TEAR OFF THE CLOAK THAT WAS NEVER MEANT FOR YOU! LOOK IN YOUR BOX AND SEE THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT I DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU! SEE THE SCROLL THAT I DREAMED UP FOR YOUR LIFE! TAKE HOLD OF IT AND SAY, ‘YES!’ TO ME! PUT ON YOUR ROBE AND JOIN ME! DON’T GO BACK TO BEING BLIND AND ASLEEP, BUT, AWAKEN!!! IT’S TIME! LEAVE YOUR COMFORTS IN THE ‘SAFETY’ OF YOUR ‘HOME’, AND PARTNER WITH ME TO SET THE NATIONS ABLAZE FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!”

Luke 12:37-38 (TPT)
“What great joy is ahead for the awakened ones who are waiting for the Master’s return! He Himself will become their servant and wait on them at his table as He passes by. 38 He may appear at midnight or even later, but what great joy for the awakened ones whenever He comes!”

Romans 13:11 (AMP)
“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ].”

Romans 13:12-14 (TPT)
“Night’s darkness is dissolving away as a new day of destiny dawns. So we must once and for all strip away what is done in the shadows of darkness, removing it like filthy clothes. And once and for all we clothe ourselves with the radiance of light as our weapon. 13 We must live honorably, surrounded by the light of this new day, not in the darkness of drunkenness and debauchery, not in promiscuity and sensuality, not being argumentative or jealous of others. 14 Instead fully immerse yourselves into the Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, and don’t waste even a moment’s thought on your former identity to awaken its selfish desires.”

Job 8:5-7 (AMP)
“If you would [diligently] seek God and implore the compassion and favor of the Almighty, then, if you are pure and upright, surely now He will awaken for you and restore your righteous place. Though your beginning was insignificant, yet your end will greatly increase.”

Beloved, we must pray for the nation of Ireland. I believe in my spirit that there will be a storm that will arise out of the sea set to bring destruction and harm to the western coast of Ireland. This storm will be no joke and we must pray that the enemy’s plan be halted and destroyed in the name of Jesus! I believe that God is giving a chance to turn. For the Global Body of Christ to turn to Him in intercession on behalf of Ireland, and the nation of Ireland to turn to Him and claim their rightful inheritance. There is rich revival history there and the nations eternally benefited from the outpouring of Holy Spirit that erupted there.

This word is a call to prayer for the nation of Ireland; and it is also a trumpet call for the awakening of many in the Global Body of Christ. This word is not exclusive to Ireland; but it is a second chance of the Lord for many who turned down the Lord in a season that was purposed to be a “YES” season. It is time to remove the blinders and scales to the Call of God, times and seasons, and the purpose for which you were created! Put off all of the heaviness and shame that is not of the Lord and rise up to the destiny set apart for you! Choose to deny the enemy of his stake at your destiny and choose to lay down every weight which so easily entangles; choose to lay everything down for the sake of the world!

Your active and participating presence in the Kingdom of God is essential to carrying out the Great Commission to see all of the nations come to know Jesus and Global Revival sweep across the furthest reaches of the earth.

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.”

The NOW Harvest: Part 2

A few days ago, I shared the first part of a Word that the Lord revealed out of John 4 called, The NOW Harvest: Part 1. To gain insight and further understanding into what I will be sharing in this post, you can read the post in the link above. Today, I will be sharing the rest of the revelation out of John 4 as well as the Word the Lord spoke in my quiet time with Him.

In the first post, we went through the encounter in John 4 after Jesus met with the Samaritan woman at the well. As He revealed His true identity to her, His disciples returned with His lunch. Urging Him to eat, He responded that His nourishment comes from doing the will of the One Who sent Him and bringing it to completion. Verse 35 in The Passion Translation says, Look at all the people coming—NOW is harvest time! For their hearts are like vast fields of ripened grain—READY for a spiritual harvest.” (emphasis added)  I shared earlier this past week in the post, Time for the Accelerated Ascent, about a dream that I had in which the Lord revealed the size of the Harvest and that the totality of His harvesters had yet to awaken to the reality that the time is NOW! When reading this passage, I was overwhelmed once again with the heart of the Father for the arising and awakening of His harvesters. He began to speak to me saying,

My daughter, the Harvest is so ripe, it is over-ripe! Oh, how I long to release the Harvest in mounting proportions! Partner with Me in reaping the reward and join in on the Great Blessing and Mighty Celebration! Together we will change things and turn it all around! Glory and Fire is rising like a fresh wave. A new sound is crescendoing upon the waves that will shake the nations awake! Do you hear the sound? Do you see what it carries upon its wings? Awakening is coming and indeed, IT IS HERE NOW! WAKE UP and RISE UP, oh, Burning Ones! Destiny be released today!!!

Beloved, we must stop begging God to come and rain down on us. The reality is His rains of Revival have already been released unto us. Joel 2:23 speaks of this. This is a time where the divine convergence of the former and the latter rains birth a synergy of outpouring and His Spirit floods the nations. Joel also makes it plainly clear in verse 12-13“Even now,” says the Lord“Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance], with fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored]; rip your heart to pieces [in sorrow and contrition] and not your garments. Now return [in repentance] to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness [faithful to His covenant with His people]; and He relents [His sentence of] evil [when His people genuinely repent].” The point of this is that the totality of the rains of His Spirit have already descended into the earthly realm, for it is His Spirit that abides in us. It is our duty to cry out for a mighty action and demonstration to be released through His Harvesters. Jesus understood that fasting precedes an outpouring. Fasting prepares the way for the Harvest. Fasting separates the wheat from the tares. For over a year, the Lord has been asking me, “How hungry are you?”

So, I must ask you, how hungry are you? Are you willing to forsake the temporary nourishment to reap an eternal reward of souls?

John 4:36 in The Passion Translation says, “And everyone who reaps these souls for eternal life will receive a reward. And those who plant spiritual seeds and those who reap the harvest will celebrate together with great joy!” The Message says, 36-38 “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.”

The reality is, if the Bride of Christ had awaken from its slumbering state years ago, even after the persecution of the Church spread thousands of years ago, and had arisen to the authority that Jesus bestowed upon all Believers when He ascended and His Spirit and fire fell, the entirety of the world would’ve been saved long ago. John speaks of this truth to the seven churches in Revelation 2-3. I believe much of the Body is in the same state of the Church in Sardis in Revelation 3.

It is time to WAKE UP! The Harvester is not waiting, He is going to gather what is His; but He desires, and in fact longs for us to join Him in a Precious Partnership! The word “sent” in verse 38 is the Greek word, “apostello”, where we get the word apostle. It means, “to send forth as a messenger, to commission.” This is an outright commission from Jesus to go out and harvest what was not ours to plant. Jesus, Himself said that others have gone ahead and put forth the labor and OUR JOB IS TO REAP! Who wouldn’t want to do that?!?!

I have seen this harvest, this new wave. I have heard the thunder of the feet of the souls to be harvested stampeding upon the waves. I have heard the roar of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah bellowing forth His voice, calling His mighty army to rise, fight, and reap! I have seen the fire in His eyes that burns for the nations, that burns for souls.

My prayer for you today is that you would receive this word, either for the first time, or anew. I pray that you would seek out to reap the harvest with intentionality, pursue His Presence increasingly, counting the cost and determining that the sacrifice is so worth it to the Glory of the One Who gave His life for us. I pray that you would draw near to Him so close that the same fire that rages in His eyes and heart for the nations, the Harvest, would sear your very being and brand you with His consuming fire of Love. All unto the commissioning of power and transformation.

I strongly urge you to listen to these songs below and let the power and love of Jesus mark you, set you apart, empower you, and commission you afresh into partnering with Him in the Third Great Awakening that IS coming soon!

Call to Go (Southeast Asia)

IMG_3013

I remember now why I do not take showers in the morning in Asia. The bone-chilling cold water should be reserved for after sweating all day in the heat. However, I am truly awake now as I write this.  This is just one of the few things when God has called us to go, we must give up to say yes.

Your will, your way, your wants and desires are always difficult to give up. “I want it my way.” You may not ever say it out loud, but this is the way you are. I know this, because this is the way I am.  Graciously, the Lord granted me several confirmations that this was a trip I was supposed to be on. I do not often get such clear direction and continually receive confirmation I am supposed to go. I usually just give Him my Yes out of faith.

After the 30+ hours of travel, I can say thank the Lord for giving me the ability to say Yes. Sitting on a plane for any extended amount of time is physically uncomfortable, to put it mildly. However, for me, it has always been hard to sleep so it becomes that much more difficult. But none of this matters because I have said Yes to Jesus and His call for me to go. Unfamiliar places, faces, food, accommodations… None of this really matters for I have given my whole-hearted Yes to Jesus and His way.  

The people here are worth it because He loves them. Even more than that, He is worth it and I love Him!!! Right now, in your life, what is of the greatest value? What do you love the most? What would you hold on to if everything else was stripped away? What if God called you to give that up to Go for Him?  Could you do it? 

My prayer for you is that you hear the call of the Lord to Go and that you say as Isaiah did, “Here I am, send Me!!! No matter the cost, no matter the price I will follow You and say Yes!!!” Jesus is worth flying to the other side of the world and giving up so much! In the same way, He is worth it to lay down your fear, pride, selfishness, to walk next door, up the street, down the fruit aisle… Or wherever else He may have you. He is worth it to give all that You have to speak His good news!!! He gave first, and He gave His best for you.

What do you have to give the Creator of the Universe??? 

I give You my, Yes and my obedience!!! Here I am!!! Send Me!!!

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

My Glory is Hidden…

Encouragement for Today –

Do you want to see a change in your life and the situations around you? Do you desire more than a meager existence? Do you hunger for more than you can see or know right now?

Come to Me!!! I am the King of Glory!!! I desire to come in and reveal all of Myself to you! Invite Me to come in like never before and open wide your heart to all of Me! 

My glory is hidden in the depths of My love!!! The closer you come to Me, the more you come to know, experience and walk in my love, the more My glory will be discovered and poured out in your life! This is what you really desire!!! I am more than you could ever see or know. 

Come to Me and discover anew My love. Ask Me for the wisdom and revelation to know it. Ask Me for strength to walk in this infinite love. As you do, you will discover new depths of My glory unseen!!! I love you My child!!!

Psalm 24:7-10 “Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah
