LAST DAYS by Pastor Paul Locke for loxland.com 14/09/2017
Joel and Pentecost Joel prophesied financial abundance and then an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all flesh. (Joel 2:24) This demonstrates that God expects the Church to be financially blessed to be able to carry out their work. Your threshing floors are supposed to be full and your vats overflowing, so the question I ask ‘If not, why not?’ The answer eludes most people because God only provides seed to the sower and the harvest is wrapped in the seed. (2Cor 9:10)
Harvest must be first named and written down to be able to proceed to the next step. We must then pray for God to provide seed because the harvest is inside the seed. If it is a car or house you want or any material thing, then it is already on earth because it is spiritual blessings that flow from the windows of heaven. (Mal 3:10) We pray to Jesus the Lord of the Harvest for workers, a method of harvest, and He will provide a seed for you to sow to release the waiting named harvest. (Lk 10:2)
Man is made from dust, the earth that God commanded to produce fruit from the seed when it is sown so always remember not to eat your planting seed: only the fruit. (Jhn 12:24) Your harvest will come from the earthman and the harvest will be like your seed; therefore apple seed produces apples, grapes produce grapes, potatoes produce potatoes for this is the reason to name your seed when asking God for the seed to sow. (Gen 1:29)
Measure you give will be given back to you pressed down and overflowing. (2Cor 9:6) The measure is the amount you sow and if you sow thousands then you will reap in thousands. The right soil is where you are to sow and to prevent loss of harvest you ask God to identify to you where you are to sow. (Lk 8:8) My experience is that God will do this and gives legs to His words, “It is more blessed to give than receive.” Disappointment comes from making an error of where you sow.
Last Days bring great blessings of a magnificent outpouring that begins with finances, then healing, and last the harvest of souls. Our job is to preach the Gospel to as many who will come and drink of the Living Water; the water of eternal life. (Jhn 4:10) The First Resurrection is our goal so as not to be left behind when Jesus comes to lift his Church up to himself. We are commended to ready and waiting for this event commonly called the rapture. (1Thes 4:16-18)
