The Harvest King Comes

The epiphany I sought came in a single word: Harvest.
I've been working on it's meaning, beyond the obvious...

I longed for the incredible first years of my walk with Christ, when every last breath was filled with ecstasy and revelation, but, we all grow up and are tested. The pain that comes with it is unexpected...

It's okay, though. We pledged our lives and so we stand, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, may stand until the time appointed.

 We were given a mission, for truth, and it's no longer the big secret. Yet, we're spies in the House of God, playing blind against unseen forces, with faith as our shield, and righteousness of Jesus Christ as our covering, because, we cannot stand in our own strength as mortals.

We groan and plead to be done with this, but, get pulled back into the world with all it's temptations and necessary obligations. We are literally caught between two worlds, and it's been 25 years or triumph and tears. When we feel anointed, we fall hard and to the bottom. We can't seem to learn our place. We're beloved, but, we are also slaves.

I pledge my last ounce of breaths to Y'shua HaMaschiach, my Lord and King, who I know and who has known me.
No matter what comes ahead, I have a foundation of peace that is impermeable. I pray for this to bless every person who is unsteady, forsaken and lost, as lost as we were when we were brought in from the wicked darkness of the endless night.

If we have 3 or 4 years, or the 7 until 2018, I pray that my brothers will regain the energy of our original state, though, we're so far gone. I pray that we finish the race strong.

We're not the Apostles, but, the Reapers.

I have so much more to say, but, I need to do some things right now. I have had a great study on why the manger scene mirrors the tabernacle booths in Succoth, and thus another puzzle piece to why Tabernacles is the ONE mandated Sabbath in the New Millennium....

Shalom. Father God, please watch over all who call on your NAME, and guide the lost to your sanctuary. Thank you for making Israel the most born-again place in the modern day era, ushering in our new age.

For the heck of it, I've been obsessed with this song today.
Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows."

Joe 3:1  For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
Joe 3:2  I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Joe 3:3  And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.
Joe 3:4  Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly [and] speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head;
Joe 3:5  Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things:
Joe 3:6  The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.
Joe 3:7  Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head:
Joe 3:8  And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken [it].
Joe 3:9  Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
Joe 3:10  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong.
Joe 3:11  Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
Joe 3:12  Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
Joe 3:13  Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness [is] great.
Joe 3:14  Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision.
Joe 3:15  The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
Joe 3:16  The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD [will be] the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
Joe 3:17  So shall ye know that I [am] the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
Joe 3:18  And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
  Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence [against] the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
Joe 3:20  But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
Joe 3:21  For I will cleanse their blood [that] I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.
