The double harvest is upon us and God needs you! The Lord spoke to me, prophetically, that He is gathering His people together to bring in the double harvest! He needs His Church body to begin stepping out and becoming the laborers to pull in the harvest. Revival fire is upon us!
Nisan - the Beginning of Months
We are fast approaching the month of Nisan, on April 1, 2022, at sundown; and then shortly after is Passover, on Friday, April 15, at sundown through Saturday, April 23, at sundown. God is accelerating us quickly, bringing fresh ideas from Heaven to help us build a strong foundation in our temple, and a strong structure for our crossover at Passover into a new season of destiny, which is not only for you personally, but for the Church of Jesus Christ as a whole.
In the month of Nisan, we start the brand-new Hebrew religious calendar year. God told Moses and Aaron in Exodus 12:2 (KJV), "This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you."
Passover - the Celebration of Victory Over Death
We then enter the celebration of Passover, which is the story of the Exodus and the story of our Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ, who was crucified and shed His Blood on Calvary for our sins, and was buried and resurrected. His powerful sacrifice caused us to leave a dominion of death and enter into a dominion of everlasting life. As Christians, we will celebrate on Sunday, April 17, that sin, death and the grave have been overcome.
Gathering the Gatherers for a Time of Remembrance
Prophetically (on the Hebrew calendar), what God is doing is calling His Church to come together in unity and be gatherers. He wants us, His people, to gather unbelievers and Christians who need to be revived with His Spirit for the harvest. Double harvest requires us, the people of God, to begin to move. The Lord is gathering everybody so that He can set us up at Passover for a remembrance of His death, burial, resurrection, and, ultimately (40 days after His resurrection), a remembrance of His ascension. What a time of celebration!
We have been properly positioned by God during this time to gather in the harvest. Now our job is to go out and minister the Gospel of the Kingdom.
The Revelation of the Kingdom: Called as One
So, what is the Gospel? It's the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who shed His Blood, died for our sins, and resurrected to release us from the captivity of the devil through sin and death. We remember at Passover or Good Friday (April 15 on the Christian calendar) that our Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ, released us from captivity and bondage to sin, death and the grave.
When Jesus came to walk the earth, He ministered the Gospel of the Kingdom. In Luke 4:43 (KJV) Scripture says, "And He said unto them, I must preach the Kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent."
Now, if Jesus is a sent one, and He is our example, then we are sent ones too. Now how do I know that? Because we are all members of the apostolic and prophetic Body of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 4:4 (KJV) reads, "There is one Body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling." Yes, some have specific callings as an apostle, but overall, our job as the Body is to be apostolic in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom. (Photo via Rawpixel)
It is true that we are connected to the Head. Jesus is the Head; we are the Body. We are seated with Him in heavenly places where He resides (Ephesians 2:6). We are members of His Kingdom. When we understand the Kingdom, we believe in the rulership, or the realm of prosperity and eternal life that Jesus gave us through His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. This is what we are called to preach...this is the revelation of the Kingdom. It includes the Gospel, but also the revelation of our current position in Christ now.
Now, we who are seated with Him are now sent to walk the earth like He did. The Kingdom of God is the rulership, the Kingdom realm, the reign of the Kingdom on the earth. Now why is this Kingdom so important? Because it means that we are called to be one; not only to share the good news of Jesus Christ, but to share the good news of the Kingdom—the good news of what God has given us through the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. We are in a place where we are called to live in the realms of Heaven or the ascended life.
Listen, there is no more captivity to sin, death and the grave. All things have been redeemed. In this place, now, we are set free. We are now properly positioned to gather others and tell them to get themselves ready as the harvest is ripe to gather new souls for the Kingdom. Only abundance in the mind and heart will pull in the desperate who live in depravity.
Our job as Kingdom citizens is to go forth and pull in the harvest that God has, and to share with them all about the Kingdom of God, Kingdom rulership, and an understanding of the fact that we are royal citizens and are called to walk in the actual realm of the Kingdom of God. As a Kingdom citizen, everywhere your foot treads, you will take that land for eternity (Deuteronomy 11:24). This is very important. See, the enemy does not have any power over us. Satan cannot bind us any longer. Church, our job now is to get out there and tell the good news: We the citizens of the Kingdom are no longer bound. We are saved, healed, delivered and royal at that!
I know some days you may feel like you're bound in your soul, your emotions, your body or in your environment. There are many ways you may think you're bound. But I'm here to tell you the good news: those boundaries, those weights, those chains have been broken in the mighty name of Jesus! Let us therefore yell and scream, "Praise Jesus! Who the Son sets free is free indeed" (see John 8:36).
The Kingdom Is Ripe! Tell Somebody the Good News!
The double month of Adar 1 and 2 has happened, the change has been made, and now we can't keep quiet as the month of Nisan approaches and double harvest is upon us. We must go out into the world and tell everybody the good news of salvation and the realm of the Kingdom. We can share this truth: If you believe in Jesus Christ, you are not only saved, but you are now in the realm of the Kingdom! The Lord asked us to pray and live in Matthew 6:10 (KJV): "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in Earth, as it is in Heaven."
This means we pray and act as though God's will will be done from a Kingdom perspective in the earth because of what Jesus already did. When Jesus walked the earth, He was our example; He came to minister the Kingdom of God. This is now OUR Kingdom mandate as His followers. Gather your friends and tell them it's time to connect with God and others to tell them to get properly positioned. Begin now, as a people of God, to gather as the Body and minister the Kingdom. The message of the Kingdom is a message of prosperity, which means shalom (peace)—nothing missing and nothing broken. That is good news!
The Kingdom is ripe and the Kingdom has arrived. Yes, it is no longer near; it has approached. Why? Because when Jesus came and walked the earth, He said in Matthew 3:2 (KJV), "...Repent ye: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." The word "hand" in the Greek is the word "eggizo," which means to make near, to come near, approach, be nigh. This is rooted in the Greek word "eggus" which means of place or time.
When you know and live in the reality that the Kingdom of Heaven is now, then you begin to walk in the prosperous realms and all that belongs to you as a Kingdom citizen. Folks, this is good news! (Photo via Pxfuel)
So go out and tell somebody the good news of the Gospel of the Kingdom. I know you may not feel prosperous. You may indeed feel weak right now. I know you may feel like God's not hearing you, and that your life is messed up. But I'm here to tell you that you are no longer captive; you've been set free to live in the realms of prosperity with Him.
Woo-hoo! Give Jesus a high five! I'm getting excited right now. I want you to share this with a friend, because this is a time when the gathering is taking place. The keyword is "gathering," and it is happening right now, as the harvest is ripe. You are a harvest worker; you are a laborer and are called to go forth.
"After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before His face into every city and place, whither He Himself would come. Therefore said He unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves." (Luke 10:1-3, KJV)
The Sent and Prosperous Ones
We are sent ones—sent into the earth realms of captivity, just like Jesus Himself (Luke 4:43). Our job is to tell about Him who sets us free from captivity and gives us a life, now, in the Kingdom of God.
God is getting His people ready for revival, and He needs you to walk in the fullness; He needs you to walk in the completeness; He needs you to walk in the totality of being who you are in Him and being connected to Him so that He can gather in this harvest. The harvest can't be gathered until the people of God decide they are the prosperous ones. Only prosperity can attract the captive.
Get yourself up out of bed. Get yourself on the phone. Start calling somebody right now. Invite them to come and hear the message of the Kingdom because of what Jesus did.
Prayer: Let Fire Come Forth!
I'm going to pray for you right now:
Father, I thank You for my friend. I thank You for the apostolic and prophetic anointing coming upon them right now. Lord, please quicken their voices. Every time they open their mouth and speak a word of God, let fire come forth. Let the word of God come forth right now, starting a fire – a revival.
It's Time to Celebrate!
He has positioned you in the Kingdom. You are gathering together the souls of prosperity and calling them to come forth, demanding that the realm of the Kingdom be made manifest in the earth. Come on, let every poverty mindset be broken right now, and let us step into the realms of prosperity...nothing missing, nothing broken.
You are no longer captive. Begin celebrating! God has rebuilt your temple. This is time for breakthrough, and you are coming into your season at Passover, where you are crossing over—where everywhere your foot treads, you will take the land. Woo-hoo! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Be excited, He is calling you.
