A Time Such as This

I’ve probably said this before, but we are living in a time that is having the greatest harvest of souls for the Kingdom that the world has ever known. I know that as Christians we all find ourselves saying “Come Lord Jesus”. But think of all the people who would perish if he were to come tonight. We are about to enter even a greater time of harvest. According to most of the prophetic people we are entering into a time of a Billion soul harvest. I want to see that. I want to be a part of that great harvest. That is why I am at the Bethel Atlanta School of supernatural ministry. I want train the workers we will need to help usher it in.

About a year ago someone, I’m not sure who right now, gave me a word that I think is very true. They said that even though I had done a lot and seen a lot in ministry that everything that I had done was only preparation for the years ahead. They didn’t realize how true that word was. It seems like all that I have done has been in preparation for right now, this season of life. I know that many people my age are dreaming of playing golf every day or lying on the beach but I can’t. No, that’s not right, I could, but I don’t want to. There is much too much to see and do in the Kingdom. I have much more fun training someone in Kingdom stuff than I do lying on the beach. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beach. I’m going there next week. But I can’t imagine life without ministry.

I was born for this! I was trained for this. As I look back over my life at the things that Julia and I did, I was heading for this time. I had no clue, but I do now. It’s interesting because I know that this year I began a journey on in a new destiny. When Julia died, so did my old life and my old destiny. It was good but I don’t think I would be here today doing what I am doing. Now I am going after divine justice, and I am running much harder than I was two years ago. There was nothing wrong with where I was, or where I was going. It would have been great. This is just different.

This year at school has been different for me in the fact that I feel so connected to all my class. We will stay connected. We all have great futures ahead of us. It’s just that some of their futures will probably be a little longer than mine. But mine will be burning bright. The good thing about this class is that we know that years down the road we will still have a connection.

God is so good. He is better than you think. I can begin to see things falling into place. I love springtime. It is spring in Atlanta. To me that is the best season of the year. It’s funny but I feel that it is springtime in my life too. I guess that goes with the new beginnings I talked about yesterday. Some one said this, and it is so true. If you are believer, the worst thing that can happen to you is that all things, even the worst possible, will work together for good. I miss Julia, even tonight. But I know that there will be more, because He is a God of increase. He has plans for me, and plans for my girls. Nothing, not even death will stop Him from releasing His goodness into our life. So, I do look back knowing that everything I have done, everything, has prepared me for this time and this season. It’s great to be surrounded by His love. It’s great to be alive and in the Kingdom. May it be ever expanding.
