Are You Ready?

Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Joel 3:13‭-‬14 NASB

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.” Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.
Revelation 14:14‭-‬16 NASB

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Revelation 14:17‭-‬19 NASB

Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the Lord is coming; Surely it is near,
Joel 2:1 NASB

Are you ready? The valley of decision is now. The harvest is coming.

🌹Worship the Lord in holy attire; Tremble before Him, all the earth.

We Are One

“It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy (to speak as a mediator between God and humankind or in God’s stead.), Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
Joel 2:28‭-‬29 NASB

The Old Testament tells of the coming indwelling Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit that speaks through us as the mediator between God and humankind. The Holy Spirit that does not segregate – male, female, even a lowly servant can have the Holy Spirit living in them.

The Spirit of grace who intercedes on our behalf and helps us to understand what we did to Jesus.

“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
Zechariah 12:10 NASB

We sent Jesus to death by our sin. When we understand, by the power of the Holy Spirit, that we, at one point in our lives, were  screaming, “Crucify Him”, we then can surrender to the will of God in our lives and let the Holy Spirit live in us. With the indwelling of the Holy Spirit we all will prophesy.

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:27‭-‬28 NASB

🌹Clothed in Jesus’ righteousness, prophesying under the power of the Holy Spirit, for the Father’s glory! We are one in God.

Evil is Good and Good is Evil

You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him? “In that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them,” or, “Where is the God of justice?” Malachi 2:17 NASB

So now we call the arrogant blessed; not only are the doers of wickedness built up but they also test God and escape.'” Malachi 3:15 NASB

Unfolding before our very eyes. The day of the Lord is near. What are we to do?

Consecrate a fast, Proclaim a solemn assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land To the house of the Lord your God, And cry out to the Lord. Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is near, And it will come as destruction from the Almighty. Joel 1:14‭-‬15 NASB

🌹Cry out to the Lord!!!
