Preparing for Harvest
I had this Word a while back (over four years) — but confirming a lot that has been prophesied today, so well worth the reminder.
Preparing for Harvest
There’s a line of tractors trundling down the road towards me. Either side of the road there are fields upon fields of ripe corn, barley, wheat, and other crops.
Each tractor has a different attachment — a reaper, a baler, a thresher, a stook-maker, a stacker — you can tell I’m not a farmer.
I was puzzled, so I asked The LORD, “Why all these separate implements LORD? Why not a Combine Harvester to do all the jobs?”
“This coming season is not a season for a one-man-band. Each of these jobs needs a specialist.”
Then He went on, “You need the Evangelist to reap and heal the crop. You need the Deliverance Team to help clean up those who need it.
You need the Teacher to get the new folk grounded in their faith. You need the Pastor to lead them into discipleship.
You need the Prophet to guide you. You need the Apostle to plan next seasons crop and supervise this seasons harvest.
One person cannot do all the jobs — this is Team Ministry!”
I asked The LORD, “Surely we need many such teams?”
He answered, “Yes, I AM raising them up now. Many are in place and ready, but more are needed.”
“Is it that difficult to raise new teams?”
“Yes, because I AM seeking those who are willing to be team workers. There is no ‘I’ in Team. There’s only ‘we’.
I AM seeking those willing to totally die to self — deny their own ego! These are harder to find.”
The LORD continued, “Time is short! Tell My People to be ready for action. Young, old, new, and experienced Christians — will ALL be needed.
Send out the call, ‘ALL HANDS ON DECK’, for this is the season of harvest. Tell them, ‘You have seen harvest before — but nothing like this that is coming.
You’ve seen a few saved occasionally, but not every week. You’ve seen a few at the Altars, never this many, week after week after week.
You’ve read, the fields are white unto harvest — have you any idea how many fields will be ready all at the same time.
Come to Me in the mornings for strength for each day. Then come to Me in the evening to thank Me and then rest.
I would not give instructions like these if it were all not imminent.
I AM coming so very soon, and there is work to be done!” says The LORD Almighty.
