The Prophesied Day Has Come

“The prophets once proclaimed that a day was coming where the plowman would overtake the reaper. They said that there was coming a time when the harvest would be so full and heavy that there would not even seem to be enough laborers or time to get the harvest in. The Word also said the mountains would drip with new wine. So, there will be a great harvest with a great outpouring of Holy Spirit. From the day Jesus walked the earth until now, that harvest has been growing, The Holy Spirit outpouring is becoming a flood of new wine! Those who have never experienced a season of harvest and outpouring are going to start to research it now and they are going to start crying out for this next Great Awakening!” (Anonymous intercessor – The Forward Event)

“’Behold, the days come,’ says Yahweh, ‘that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the one treading grapes him who sows seed; and sweet wine will drip from the mountains, and flow from the hills.’” (Amos 9:13; WEB)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Declare Amos 9:13 above prophetically into the nation. Proclaim it over your neighborhood, city and state, as well. Feel your faith arise as you do this.
  • Call for the heavy harvest. Say that the harvest is ripe!
  • Call for those who will tread out the wine of the Holy Spirit. Say that the grapes are full of the sweet wine of His Presence!
  • Call for the reapers—those who will research past moves of God and become desperate to get into the harvest fields.
  • Call for those that will serve in night and day prayer to bring down the sweet wine into the earth—the Holy Presence of God.

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, I join You and say, “Behold, that days have come that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the one treading grapes, him who sows seed. The sweet wine of the Holy Spirit will drip from the mountains and flow from the hills.” I proclaim it over my neighborhood, city, state and nation. The Great Harvest of souls is ripe and ready for the reapers! The grapes are full of the wine of the Holy Spirit. Let the reapers appear! Let these young ones look back at how You have moved before. Let their hearts cry out for this move of God in their generation! Stir the hearts of the intercessors and those that will cry out day and night for the great outpouring of Holy Spirit baptisms and power in the nation. Holy Presence of God, flow. Jesus, come and be glorified in America! Amen.

Today’s decree:

The day of the harvest and the outpouring of Holy Spirit power has come to America!

Examine the Harvest and Count the Cost

Want to see society be changed? There is coming a massive awakening. Get ready! What about when the evangelists hit the streets and get people saved out of compromised lifestyles. There will be those saved out drug addiction with their arms stripped from searching for veins. There will be those covered in tattoos that exalt the enemy and they can never be removed. How about the gender-confused that have had hormones and surgery but now Jesus has given them their identity back? They will come from all walks of life. This isn’t the Jesus Movement with simply long hair and cut-off shorts. This is our day! Our societal issues are far more serious today, and we are called to love those who will come out of these situations. They will stand beside us for all eternity and we must embrace them and put them to work inside our churches. They will need to become lawmakers and business owners, teachers, judges and pastors. Get your hearts ready for this unique harvest!

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (John 13:34-35; NLT)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • Look around you wherever you go today. See anyone unusual? Jesus wants that person in the Kingdom. We need to start changing our religious mindsets.
  • Check your heart for any religious, pharisaical spirit that would want to keep certain people away from Jesus, or at least out of your church.
  • Purposefully intercede for someone you know that is in a compromised lifestyle. Pray that they will know they are loved by Jesus. Pray that they will come to Christ or come back to Him. Ask God to use them fully in the plan He destined for them to walk in.
  • Ask God for a greater capacity to love others. Not to accept sin, but to love people enough to share Jesus with them and then disciple them.

A prayer you can pray:

Father, open my eyes to really see those I sometimes don’t want to notice. Break my heart for what breaks yours. Lost people are those the devil has deceived, lied to, and caused to suffer deep pain in order to push them away from You. The most unusual often have the deepest pain and the highest calling which we can only see once they are born again. Get me and my church ready for anyone who walks in the doors. Help us to get ready to clean any fish that jumps in Your net. Help us to see them the way You created them. Don’t let us give up on them as we disciple them. Expand our hearts. Teach us to love as You love, dividing the sin from the sinner. We can’t wait to see who You entrust us with! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Today’s decree:

We decree that new Believers will be loved to wholeness by the Church!

The Command of the Lord of the Harvest

“The problem we have right now is not that we have so many unbelievers in the nation. The problem is that we don’t have enough laborers. Jesus came out seeing the masses, harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He gathered His leaders and said, ‘We’ve got a big problem here.’ He didn’t say, ‘Guys, we have this problem. Will you send up a couple of prayers? Maybe throw in a few words in tongues? Maybe pray that the Lord of the Harvest would send in a few laborers?’ That’s not what He said or how He said it! He came to them filled with pathos (passion) and said, ‘Pray!’ (It was a command!) He said the equivalent of ‘I command you to beg Me to send laborers!’ He was saying, ‘Cry out to Me to hurl forth those into the harvest that know how to save the lost, heal the sick, cast out demons, and let the oppressed go free!’” (Lou Engle)1

And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues…they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16:17-18; NCV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • You know all those unsavory unsaved people out there – the ones on the news – the ones participating in all kinds of sin? Jesus had compassion on them. Let that sink in.
  • Ask God to let you see the lost the way He sees them. Ask for His heart for them, as well.
  • Now, pray for their salvation with His heart cry!
  • Cry out to Him, “Hurl forth those into the harvest that know how to save the lost, heal the sick, cast out demons, and let the oppressed go free! And, include me!”

A prayer you can pray:

Lord, let me see the unsaved as You see them. I’ll sit here quietly before You for a minute. Give me Your heart for them. Teach me to pray for them. Make me bold enough to minister to them before they come to know You, so they can see Your love and concern for them. Save them, Jesus! Hurl forth those into the harvest, including me, that know how to save the lost, heal the sick, cast out demons, and let the oppressed go free! Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Today’s decree:

Kingdom harvesters are being thrust into the harvest fields of this nation!
