The Harvest That He Wants.

The Harvest That He Wants.

What ever your condition is, there is a position in the Holy of Holies that has been intended for your presence all along. It can be a secret hideout where no one knows where you are. It can be a place in your home where it seems like you are alone. It can even be a place within you that has been the seat of His throne within your heart and mind, where your conscious walk has been in tune for His Voice and His leading, aware that the Lord could speak, or show you something that is Manna-Rhema, a “suddenly known” Word of the Lord,that strikes you in your spirit.
There have been many times in my life, in my walk with the Lord where a vision suddenly flashes within my mind in the Spirit. Like the vision of the gazelle,bounding along a set of raised railroad tracks coursing through the browned, drought stricken high grasses in the Serengeti in Africa. The gazelle is bounding along the high tracks while a lion is chasing along at the base of the elevated tracks. The lion would try to get up upon the tracks to attack the gazelle but would tumble back down, get up again and continue its chase.
But the gazelle would keep gaining ground every time the lion fell, In spite of how vulnerable the gazelle is on its own, it has the advantage because of the slippery slope the lion tried to climb. As the scripture says in Isaiah, “It is called the way of holiness…..And no lion will be able to climb up there…therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and there will be singing unto Zion, an everlasting joy shall be upon their heads. They shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.” The Word of the Lord came alive..Manna-Rhema; The Word That Is Sent.
Another vision in the Spirit showed me walking through a field toward an opening in a hedgerow, into a field of ripe, golden wheat. “Amber waves of grain” The ocean was in the background behind the wheat field. A gentle breeze was blowing across the field creating waves across the top of the ripened wheat. Just as the waves in the wheat are created by the wind, the wind also creates the waves on the ocean.
The wheat represents the Word Of God that has been preparing to be harvested in due time. “If a prophet has a dream, let him tell the dream. If he has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully; what is the chaff to the wheat” “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
The wind represents the Holy Spirit. As in Genesis, “the Spirit of the Lord brooded over the face of the waters.” In this verse it is referring to the Word of The Lord being incubated, caused to come to fulfillment. The Spirit of the Lord is causing the Word That Is Sent into your life to come to fulfillment, for you have been made complete in Christ Jesus. For He Who has begun this good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. The Lord is causing the Word that He sent to be incubated within your spirit and your mind, to cause the harvest that He wants.
“Christ in you, the hope of Glory.”
“I send forth My Word, it will not return to Me cancelled out. It will accomplish the purpose for which I have sent it.”
In Ezekiel chapter 1: 4, the word “Amber” is used to describe the Glory of God.
Come into the Holy of Holies.

Never Leaving You Behind.

Never Leaving You Behind.

“Is there ever a time when I am not with you? Is there ever a time when I don’t see you, or hear you? Haven’t I called you by name?” , says the Lord.
“Times have gone by when I have stretched forth My hand and My heart to you while you have taken a wrong road, taken a wrong turn that I did not desire for you. I did not turn away from you, but My heart burned in compassion for you to return. There is nothing that I can’t do for you,; to heal you, restore you, to own for you the times when you would not acknowledge My hand upon your life.
But I have kept My hand upon you so you will realize just how far, and how long I have been watching for the day when My Love for you will find its way in to your broken heart.
I have not left you.
I have not forgotten you.
I have never forsaken you.
When you return to Me, you will see.
When you return to Me, you will know Me.
When you return to Me, you will realize not only how far you went from Me,
But you will realize how far I have come alongside you;
Never leaving you behind.”

The Lamps That Are Ablaze.

The Lamps That Are Ablaze.

The Call to write is answerable through your faith that He will speak to you. If you believe that the Voice of the Lord is powerful, which it truly is, then the power of God is going to meet you where you are. If you believe that the Voice of the Lord is full of majesty, which it truly is, then the Word of the Lord that is sent to you will carry with it the essence of the Holy of Holies, where the 24 elders,around the throne of God cast their crowns before the Lord, and the four living creatures night and day cry out “Holy, Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was, Who is, and is to come!” (Revelation 4.).
In the Holy of Holies, there are seven lamps that are ablaze with the fire of the Holy Spirit. They are called the seven Spirits of God. The lamps are not just flickering lamps to light up the throne room. The flames are BLAZING with the fire of the Spirit. I believe these lamps are the flames referred to when John the Baptist spoke about the coming Messiah, where he said; “There is One coming after me whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with Fire”.The Book of Revelation had not been written yet, But John, I believe had a vision of what was yet to be written by John, the brother of Jesus. (Revelation 4.)
On the day of Pentecost, while waiting in the upper room in Jerusalem,where Jesus told them to wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit, tongues of fire appeared over the disciples and they all spoke in various kinds of tongues, foreign languages, where the Jewish visitors from other countries were witnessing the hearing of their own languages, hearing about the wonderful works of God..These foreign visitors knew that the ones speaking in tongues were all Galileans. (Acts chapter 2).
I also believe that the same fire is referred to in the book of Jeremiah where it says; “Is not My Word like fire. Is not My Word like the mighty hammer that smashes the rocks.”. (Jeremiah 23:29). The rocks refer to your unbelief.. In Romans 10:9 it says “Faith comes by hearing; and hearing by the Word of God. It is this Rhema Word of God that smashes the rocks of your unbelief.
The Fire of Holy Spirit in the Rhema Word That Is Sent makes this Word living and the double edged sword, dividing joints and marrow, soul and spirit. It is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. There is nothing hidden from Him to which we must give an account. it will bring about the transformation leading to the renewing of your mind. (Hebrews 4, Romans 12)
Every day He is sending forth His Word, and it will not return to Him void. It will accomplish the purpose for which He sent it. Jesus is The Word That Is Sent. As stated in John chapter one, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We beheld His Glory, the Glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Every day He is sending His Word to be realized by you, that He has a wonderful purpose for the Word He has sent you. It will transform you into the likeness of His dear Son. It will draw you into the Holy of Holies and you truly come to know that “The Voice of the Lord is powerful. The Voice of the Lord is full of Majesty.” (Psalm 29:4).

The Very Possible Reality By Grace.

The Very Possible Reality By Grace.

The seven lamps around the Throne of the Lamb are BLAZING with the Fire that will emblazon the Word That Is Sent, as you seek Him with all your heart. “Is not My Word like Fire? Is not My Word like the mighty hammer that smashes the rocks?”
Yes there is great grace pouring out to you from the Holy of Holies. It is a time of the awakening, the out pouring upon the face of the earth.
It is not only a time for unifying the called out ones, but also for the separation of the tares from the wheat. It is for the discerning between those who will serve My purpose from those who will not.
It is true that all of creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God, and the daughters of God. I am hearing these groanings from all parts of the earth. From all the mountains and the hills, from the valleys and the oceans. From the young and the old, from the rich and the poor, from the children and from the unborn.
I hear all these things that have been the expression of all that I have put forth upon the earth.
I bring forth these groanings and calling out to Me from the depths of your hearts for the express purpose of drawing all to the Throne, all into the purpose for which I have created you.
I am calling all into My Love..
My called out ones know what this love is. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God and every one that loves is born of God and knows God. He that loves not does not Know Me For I am Love, says the Lord. My love is covering the multitude of transgressions for My Own sake, says the Lord. For My own Name’s sake I do this.
The Blood of the Lamb that was shed has made what was impossible for you, the very possible reality by My Grace. I make all things new.
It is by My Great Grace that you are saved to the uttermost. For I have seen your ways and I will heal you, It is not by your might, nor by your own power, but by My Spirit says the Lord.”

“It is not the will of God that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9.

Also read Revelation 4:5, Revelation 5:5, Revelation 21:5
