Time to Take Up the Sickle!!!

This past weekend, I was privileged that God opened up a crazy door for me to attend the International Young Prophets gathering near here. It is a company of young prophets partnering with the Elijah’s of our day to establish the Kingdom of God in the nations. There are not enough words to describe all that took place, however, I will share a vision I had the morning of the second day I attended. Prior to knowing I would even go, all week in prayer and prophetic declarations and worship, I found myself crying out repeatedly, “Oh, God! Swing Your sickle and bring forth the Harvest!!!” Prior to going the first day, I found out the gathering was called, “The Sickle.”

I was standing before a bare field all around me to the left, right, and behind me. Before me was a massive field of tall stalks of wheat so white and so great in proportion that it was blinding. This field stretched beyond the reach of my vision. Suddenly, a gentle breeze of Holy Spirit breathed upon the field and the stalks swayed in the quiet stillness surrounding me.
The wind of the Spirit blew a fresh wind of new life upon me; leading me to walk forward and look in front of me. As if being given a fresh pair of eyes, I saw it. Just to my left I saw staked into the ground, a sickle. It was as if a pillar of the light of the sun broke through the clouds overhead and shone upon the sickle, highlighting it. Immediately in my spirit I was completely aware that the sickle had been sitting there, staked into the soil for years awaiting a laborer to come, take it up, and to use it to reap the Harvest. It had been passed over and rejected many times before and had been crying out to be taken up for generations past. Seeing the color of the Harvest revealed this truth — it was OVERRIPE!
I immediately without hesitation, lunged forward, grabbed it, and yanked it out of the soil. As I did, suddenly, a dynamite power hit me as if I was struck by lightning; with the surge of power being great, overwhelming, and overpowering. I took the sickle up and thrust it toward the Harvest. As soon as I did, an explosive power stretched out from the sickle and like a fast-paced tidal wave, the Harvest was mowed down and harvested in a mighty, thunderous motion. The explosion echoed throughout time and space, greater than the sound of a sonic boom. The fields before me now lay barren and cleared, having brought in the fullness of the Harvest. I heard the Lord say:

“CAN A NATION COME TO ME IN A DAY? Can a nation of millions of disenfranchised, lost, barren, and dying souls be brought into My Kingdom in a moment? Surely, it is possible, or I would not have said it long ago! I have done it before and I will do it again!

In the stillness and quiet, My Spirit has nurtured and tended to the stalks to sustain the life that existed. In the forgotten, dormant period, life ensued. In the times that My laborers neglected the Harvest set before them and left it to waste, I held it in the palm of My hands.

Behold, I am breathing new life upon all that you have known. Many have known one aspect of life for far too long that you have become deceived into thinking that you see and possess the fullness. But I say to you: BE NOT DECEIVED! NO ONE can know all there is to know about life! Put off your competition! NO ONE can reap the entirety of the Harvest alone in their own will! It takes THE ENTIRETY OF MY LABORERS CONJOINED AND CONVERGED, yes, knit into Me, to set the nations ablaze for My Glory! Watch as I breath a fresh wind upon what I have given you to steward. What you have known will no longer be your reality. Watch as I cause a great shifting in the focus and direction of what I have given; unsealing that which has been hidden. Yes, A GREAT SHIFTING IS HERE!

A time ago, the Harvest set before you had reached its initial ripeness and awaited ones that would bring it in. With great disappointment and sadness in My heart, I FOUND NONE that would take up the tools I had set before them to gather up the souls that I had placed ahead of them. There the tools lay, forgotten to gather dust. Will I allow My Harvest to decay and rot because of lack of reapers? Of course not! EVERY SOUL MATTERS! EVERY SOUL HAS A DESTINY AND PURPOSE THAT I DESIGNED FROM BEFORE THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH!

I have not relented in calling forth those I desire to equip to carry forth My grand purpose! As I have tended to the crop and watched it brighten and expand, great expectation has built up in inexplainable proportions, that I might find someone willing to answer the call.

Therefore, I AM BRINGING FORTH THE SUDDENLIES IN THE SHIFTING! I will not leave you to squelch all that I desire any longer! WATCH AS I TAKE YOUR MINISTRIES AND BRING A GREAT SHAKING! WATCH AS I TAKE YOUR LIVES AND BRING A MIGHTY SIFTING! I will cause you to shake off all of your man-made mantles and pedestals; and I will turn your lives right-side up!

I AM RELEASING NEW EYES TO SEE THE HARVEST SET BEFORE YOU. I WILL BAPTIZE YOU IN COMPASSION FOR THE LOST, THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO GO TO UNENDING LENGTHS, YES, EVEN FORSAKING YOUR LIVES UNTO DEATH, TO REAP THE HARVEST! SUDDENLY, YOU WILL SEE! ASK OF ME! ASK ME FOR THE NATIONS! THEY’RE YOURS! NOW, GO!!! Take up that which I have set before you and ANSWER THE CALL! BE THE ANSWER!!! DO NOT DELAY ANY LONGER! I AM READY!!! PARTNER WITH ME TO SEE A TIDAL WAVE INFLUX, greater than the world has ever seen! IT IS TIME!

Isaiah 66:8 (TPT)
“Who has even seen or heard of such a wonder? Could a country be born in a day? Can a nation be birthed so suddenly? Yet no sooner does Zion go into labor than she gives birth to sons!”

Matthew 9:36-38 (TPT)
“When He saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. He turned to his disciples and said, ‘The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest His grain!'”

Mark 4:29 (TPT)
“Then, when the grain is ripe, he immediately puts the sickle to the grain, because harvest time has come.”

Revelation 14:14 (MSG)
“I looked up, I caught my breath!—a white cloud and one like the Son of Man sitting on it. He wore a gold crown and held a sharp sickle. Another Angel came out of the Temple, shouting to the Cloud-Enthroned,’Swing your sickle and reap. It’s harvest time. Earth’s harvest is ripe for reaping.’ The Cloud-Enthroned gave a mighty sweep of His sickle, began harvesting earth in a stroke.”

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!

Return, Rest, Be Blessed!!!

Daily Encouragement –

How are things going in your life? Have you built a life for yourself? Do you have all you want or are you ready to give up? 

Come to Me! Come to Me! Come to Me! Over and over again you must come to Me! You are continually getting pulled away from Me by the things of the world you let into your life. 

I desire you to be saved not enslaved! I want you to be strengthened not destroyed! I seek for you a blessing in every area of your life not destruction as the world does. You cannot receive all these good things from Me going your own way or doing your own thing, what you think is right. 

Return to Me! Trust in Me! I am here waiting to lavish you with grace, mercy, and blessing. Come to Me and wait in My presence! 

Trust Me no matter what the situation looks like around you! I will exalt My name in, through, and all around you as you stand with Me. My way is the only way of salvation, strength, grace, mercy, and blessing. Come to Me, wait, and watch what I will do! I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 30:15 For the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel has said this, “In returning [to Me] and rest you shall be saved, In quietness and confident trust is your strength.” But you were not willing…

V. 18 “Therefore the Lord waits [expectantly] and longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed (happy, fortunate) are all those who long for Him [since He will never fail them].”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Power, Ability, Strength and More!!!

Daily Encouragement –

What do you see around you- problems, distractions, worries? Do you know all you need to walk through these things? Do you feel weak and powerless in certain areas of your life? 

Come to Me! I have all you need ready to give to you freely! I have given My Spirit to rest upon you and live in you. Receive Him and the help He has to give. 

Holy Spirit brings knowledge and wisdom for every situation. He will reveal what you need and how you need to do it. He gives power, ability, and strength to carry out all these things in the right way. He gives the ability to come to Me and truly know Me because of Jesus. 

You can continue to do things your own way, with what you see and know, in your own strength just like the rest of the world, but why would you want to? Why would you want to be broken down, exhausted, angry, and depressed? 

Come to Me and receive joy, strength, power, and rest. I have all these things and more to give freely as you come to Me. I love you My child!!!

Isaiah 11:2 “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

It’s My Way…

Daily Encouragement –

Are you satisfied with life? Do you have all you need? Are you walking so you will not stumble and fall? Do you really know Me? 

Sadly, at some point, or at many points, you will choose to walk in your own way. If you are walking in your own way, you will become dissatisfied, needy, you will begin to falter, and feel alone. This is a miserable existence, and I do not want this to be the story of your life or even a chapter in it. 

Come to Me! Return to Me! Acknowledge the foolishness of your own way, and walk with Me! 

Walking with Me, you will have all you need, and I am walking with you to help you. I am here to satisfy the deepest longing of your heart. I am close and will reveal all of Who I am so we will grow in relationship together. 

I am willing! I am ready! I am waiting for you! Come to Me! Come closer! Let’s walk together! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 31:9 “They shall come with weeping, And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father…”

V. 18-19 “… Restore me, and I will return, For You are the Lord my God. Surely, after my turning, I repented; And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated, Because I bore the reproach of my youth.’”

V. 33-34 “But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

Shepherding in Truth

Daily Encouragement –

Have you given Me your whole heart? Are you pretending or trying to fool someone? I know the Truth and reality in your heart. You can never fool Me. I will not let you try to fool yourself forever either. 

I am merciful and ready to heal any backsliding and forgive all sin. Bring your darkness to the light, acknowledge your sin, and turn from it. Whether blatant sin or not obeying fully what you have been told to do, bring all these things to Me. I will forgive, heal, and set you free from all the guilt and condemnation. 

I am waiting for you to come to Me in Truth so I can shepherd you with My heart. I will give knowledge and understanding of Me, My heart, and My ways as you fully come to Me!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 3:10, 12-13, 15 Judah has not turned to Me with her whole heart, but in pretense,” says the Lord. 
Return, backsliding Israel,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not cause My anger to fall on you. For I am merciful,’ says the Lord; ‘I will not remain angry forever. Only acknowledge your iniquity, That you have transgressed against the Lord your God,
…And you have not obeyed My voice,’ says the Lord.
[Return] And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding

Jeremiah, Man on Fire!!!

You Must Praise The Lord!!!

Daily Encouragement – 

Hallelujah!!! You must praise The Lord!!! You must give thanks to the Lord!!! My blessings are upon you for your complete good. 

In spite of all the things you have done and even though you do not deserve it, I am here ready to respond when you finally call for help. I will lift you up out of the pit, cleanse you completely, and make you strong if you will only cry out to Me for help. 

You cannot do it yourself no matter how hard you try. The enemy and the world are working together against you. Come close to Me and join Me!!! When you are on My side, you will never be defeated. Even if you struggle and fall, draw near to Me once again, and I will lift, revive, and restore you. 

I will perfect you body, mind, and soul as you press in to Me!!! You must praise and give thanks to The Lord!!! I love you My child!!! 

Psalm 138:1-3 I will give You thanks with all my heart; I sing praises to You before the [pagan] god. 
I will bow down [in worship] toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word together with Your name.
On the day I called, You answered me; And You made me bold andconfident with [renewed] strength in my life.
