The Plantings of the Lord
“But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor” John 12:23-26, NKJV.
My child, in My obedience to the Father’s command, I planted My life, My body, even like a kernel of corn in order to reap a great harvest. The corn kernel produces a corn plant, which in turn bears full heads of corn at harvest. The seed contains the DNA or blueprint of the mature plant and the crop that comes from it. Look to the natural to see the shadows of the spiritual.
I was planted in the ground and rose from the dead as Victor over death, hell, and the grave. All who come to Me and receive Me as Lord are inseminated with the seed of the Kingdom: Yes, My DNA in them. This is why the born again Christian is called a new creation — a new creature in the grand scheme of Creation.
The natural seed only possesses the potential; it must be received into good soil to prosper. It must be watered, fed, and nurtured by the heat of the sun. The farmer must do his part, but the growth and potential of the seed comes from within and produces after its own kind.
The spiritual seed is nurtured by and through the work of Holy Spirit. But the soil of your hearts must be willing and obedient for germination to begin. The Love-fire of the presence of the Son of God calls the seed to break out into the blade. The Living Water of the power of the Spirit wets the soil of your hearts to facilitate growth. The Word is a tilling implement that keeps the soil loose and teachable. It also feeds the seeds so that good fruit is produced.
What springs forth from this process are many brethren who are conformed to My image. These are the ones who will operate in humility and loyalty to the Father even as I did and do. These are the ones who were born into this age to show forth the glory of Heaven even in the darkest of days.
I was planted so this harvest would come and enforce My victory in the presence of My enemy. The blood of the martyrs was shed so this generation would claim the recompense of their lost giftings that was due them, even in these last days. The enemy is not strong enough to withhold the giftings, powers, and blessings of the Lord back from this end-time generation (army) of believers. The Lord is able to subdue all things to His will.
I tell you to look with the eyes of faith and you will see what I see. I see the harvesters waking up to their true callings. I see the plantings of the Lord heavy with good fruit. I see a people whose eyes are not dim and whose hands are not weak. I see My Bride preparing herself to go into the field with Me to reap the nations and bring in the harvest to Father’s house.
Some may laugh at these words because they are only looking at the darkness as it grows thicker and more oppressive. But I AM the hope of the world and the darkness has no place in Me and in those who have been implanted with My life and bear My image. Do not be dismayed at the mockings just demonstrate the Kingdom in love. Then instead of mocking you will hear them cry out for help. My Light will arise and shine and draw in the final harvest as the consummation of all things begins.
I release My grace to all who will read these words to have eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to understand, comprehend, and retain all that I am saying and doing in this hour. Shalom.
