"The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels." —Matthew 13:39
There's a lot of harvester angels being released right now. The atmosphere is changing and the shift is happening.
This is not a "daily" word—this is a watchword for the next several years. We are in a time of rapid change and acceleration as the angels of God and His holy people work in tandem to bring reformation. This is an exciting move of God, but it is not short-term and it will not be easy. Big changes will continue to happen over a long period of time because the Church will not be able to hold the coming harvest of souls in its present state.
The Father is preparing the Church to bring in a harvest so big that it will take two decades to bring in. This is why the preparation is so long and intense. God’s people are like an army that is being forced to re-train and re-equip for a new season and new terrain. The Lord is going to be giving many new tools and tactics that we will need for the next season, but some of these will take several several years in “research and development” (R&D). Just as the army’s R&D takes several years to develop new technologies for new battleground situations, the Lord has many reformers hidden away right now becuase they are still receiving bits and pieces of the powerful spiritual weapons we will need in the future. Some of them will not come into the light of day until 2020. These weapons will bring terror to the power of darkness. Some of these “powerful spiritual weapons” will be the people themselves as they abide in holiness and power. Others will be songs, or teachings, or spiritual gifts that go beyond what we’ve seen in the past. We will have no grid for some of what will be released and we’ll be forced to search the scriptures to understand it.
Reformation teams will work together in regions to prepare the Body for the coming harvest. This work of reformation will be to (1) create a resting place for His glory and (2) train and equip believers to maturity until each one could disciple a team and multiply the kingdom. Some teams will be completely devoted to building resting places for His glory. Other teams will be completely devoted to power evangelism and discipleship. If you lean one direction, you’ll need to see the value in the other. The Lord gave these two agendas to us when He gave us the two greatest commandments. Those who are called to build a resting place for His glory are assigned to the agenda of “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength” and those who are called to train and equip believers are assigned to the agenda of “You shall Love your neighbor as yourself” (see Matthew 22:36-40).
A new unity will rise as five-fold ministry leaders receive the same blueprints to restore the headship of Christ to the church and dethrone the spirit of man. This will not be easy for everybody. Some harvest nets will break and old wineskins will fracture. However, this is only to make way for new stronger nets and more flexible wineskins which the reformers will build. In some of the places where the worst fractures take place, the Lord will come and mend the nets and make them strong enough to bring in whales. These are the cities and regions that will have the “sign of Jonah” and move in resurrection power. They will lay hold of the nuclear fusion power of Holy Spirit union (see John 17). The Lord showed me Atlanta, Georgia as the place where resurrection power was going to be released in a remarkable way because of the unity there.
A shaking is coming to the nation, but along with the shaking I saw a word written in massive letters: “TRUST.” We need the same kind of trust that an infant has. We need to put ourselves right in the Father’s arms and be at total rest, knowing He upholds us and protects us. Also trust that the Father is “shaking everything that can be shaken” only to prepare the way for the “glory of the latter house” to be revealed (see Haggai 2). The only way to avoid growing weary or stressed with the pace of change will be to follow the cloud and quickly obey the Spirit’s direction. The best way to follow the cloud is to stay in the cloud all the time. Learn to abide in Him and you’ll always be in step and bear much fruit.
Here’s some simple ways to respond to this word:
Which agenda is your primary ministry calling right now? Search your desires and find what the Father put in your heart.
Repent if there’s anything you’re not trusting God on right now. Learn to trust Him so much that you can just rest in Him and not be phased by anything.
Who are the people (or the team) you’re called to connect to in this season? How can you pray for them and strengthen them?
Set aside time for “R&D”--time to reconsecrate your life, invite His presence, and wait on Him for new wisdom and revelation.
