I HAD AN ENCOUNTER WITH THE LORD IN A DREAM AND I HEARD HIS THUNDEROUS VOICE DECLARING “HARVEST IS COMING, HARVEST IS COMING FROM EVERY DIRECTION!!”
Recently I had a dream and I was sitting with a friend and telling her about a life changing encounter (this encounter I talked about in the dream, was not one I had already had in the natural) I had with the Lord that has marked me forever. As soon as I spoke, I was taken in the dream, back into the encounter.
In this encounter I was standing with a huge group of people in a large field, people everywhere. There was such a strong sense of the beautiful presence of God, yet urgency filled the atmosphere. A weighty, beautiful, fear of God and urgency to hear and respond to what the Lord was saying.
There was an incredible sense of an open heaven and the Lord was about to release something very weighty. I began to see blueprints, creative strategy and inventions being released from heaven. As I saw these things being released the whole atmosphere was booming with the word “STRATEGY”. The Lord was releasing specific STRATEGY but then something happened that filled the atmosphere with that sense of urgency at the start of the dream.
THOSE WHO WERE POSITIONED, RECEIVED
I could feel such a weighty sense of His presence and I KNEW in this encounter that the eyes of the Lord were roaming the earth, looking for those who were positioned to receive.
The KEY to receiving these blueprints, strategy and insight was seeking HEAVEN’S AGENDA, the WAY of God above anything else. It was a deeper call to surrender, the place where hearts are seeking His strategy, and His way for this NEW season. Not relying on what was done before, how He has moved before, what you think is the strategy of this season, but really laying down every assumption, a fresh surrender and seeking God specifically for His strategy for this new season. Such a weighty, urgency in the Spirit to “BE READY!!!!!!”
I watched as those who were positioned in surrender and with open hearts and humility, yielded to His ways began to receive these strategies from heaven. These strategies were falling from heaven as SCROLLS and the positioned ones were EATING these scrolls.
He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your body with this scroll which I am giving you.” Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. – Ezekiel 3:3
It was again this invitation from the Lord to be positioned and to devour the Word of God. As each one ate the strategy of His heart, the strategy in the Word, His beautiful words, as they digested these scrolls, I saw ARROWS come out of their mouth and went in EVERY direction.
ARROWS OF BREAKTHROUGH AND DECREE USHERING IN HEAVEN TO EARTH
The arrows that came out of their mouths were arrows of DECREE, weapons of significant impact bringing forth breakthrough and ushering heaven to earth through the prophetic declaration. It was SO IMPORTANT to notice and understand that these arrows were ONLY RELEASED when the Word of God He was releasing, the fresh manna from heaven was eaten, they were moulded, shaped and established and full of the power of God by the scroll of His Word.
The sense was so strong, EVERY DIRECTION they went was affected. Nothing was left unaffected by these arrows. These arrows were ENTRUSTED to those who received the scrolls and strategy of heaven through His Word.
CREATIVE STRATEGIES, INVENTIONS AND INSIGHTS
The creative strategies, inventions and insights of the Lord when decreed, established and put into place are going to CRACK OPEN THE HARD GROUNDS and create pathways for a MIGHTY harvest to FLOW and be received. These creative strategies, inventions and insights when received and partnered with, were going to see MAJOR INFLUENCE and ground taken for the Kingdom of God. The Glory, goodness, wisdom and love of Jesus impacting greater realms of influence than we have imagined, making the world turn their head and MANY, MANY, MANY come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord.
THEN HIS VOICE THUNDERED…
Then suddenly the voice of the Lord THUNDERED. His decree SO powerful and everything SHOOK at His voice. The sense was so overwhelming that as HE SPOKE IT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
“HARVEST IS COMING! HARVEST IS COMING FROM EVERY DIRECTION!!!!”
I was overcome with the incredible exciting sense again of this season of harvest, and the Holy Spirit burned a few things deeply with conviction in my spirit:
1. THE HARVEST IS BIGGER THAN WE REALISE – The harvest that is coming is BIGGER than we realise. It is SO HUGE, we cannot COMPREHEND the harvest we are about to see on the earth. The presence of God was SO strong on the words “COMING FROM EVERY DIRECTION”. So every nation, every tribe, every tongue, every mountain of influence, every age group… NO direction left UNTOUCHED by the power of God, the good news of the Gospel, and the beautiful love of Jesus.
For as the waters fill the sea, the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD.” – Habakkuk 2:14
“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.” – Amos 9:13
“As surely as I am the Living God, I tell you: Every knee will bow before me an every tongue will confess the truth and glorify me.” – Romans 14:11 (The Passion Translation)
2. STEWARDING THE HARVEST – He is wanting to prepare His people to steward the harvest and the major increase that is upon the Church. Harvest is coming from every direction, every area, but we as God’s people must be ready to receive it, positioned with the strategy of heaven. We must be people that are decreeing what is upon HIS heart to bring breakthrough to areas and steward the increase God is bringing forth. To partner with the Holy Spirit in stewarding the increase and harvest coming forth. There was a strong emphasis in this dream of WHAT WE SPEAK, DECLARE and PROPHESY.
I have been feeling the fear of God for quite a long time now over what we decree and prophesy over people, cities, nations. The Lord is reminding us as His people that we must be prophesying the strategy and insight of heaven and His heart and Word.
What God is doing is glorious, it is such a beautiful and exciting time to be alive, but the harvest that is coming is so far greater than we realise. The increase God is bringing above what we have imagined. The move of the Holy Spirit upon the earth and what is upon us requires a people who are locked into His heart, receiving heaven’s strategy, yielded, surrendered and eating and devouring the scrolls of the Word of God to SEE and RELEASE the DECREE OF GOD and see it established.
“I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do – even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father!” – John 14:12 (The Passion Translation)
The LORD said to me, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled.” – Jeremiah 1:12
God is preparing His people to steward the harvest. We must make sure we are positioned to receive His strategy, revelation and insight and see heaven come to earth in a way that is greater than we have ever imagined.
