I had a powerful vision and encounter with the Lord recently during a church service at Queen City Church (QCC) in Charlotte, North Carolina.
We were standing on the edge of the field. I felt the Father (Lord of the harvest) say, "The Church is on the edge now of the great harvest at the end of the age" (see Matthew 13:24-43).
The Holy Spirit spoke to me saying, "All you need is a fire and a hammer to break through the strongholds and penetrate the hearts of the religious minds and darkness of the people." (Photo via Flickr)
"Is not My word like a fire?" says the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?" Jeremiah 23:29
In the vision, the hammer was called "George Whitefield." He was part of the first Great Awakening, and many referred to him as the "field preacher." Sometimes crowds of 20,000 to 30,000 would gather, and he would preach the Gospel with a booming voice. No amplification system was needed. George Whitefield had charisma, and his voice, according to many accounts, could be heard for over five miles.
We are being commissioned into a new season of harvest like we have never seen before. In this vision, we were stepping into the great harvest after many years of being trained and equipped. More than ever, we are entering into a reaping season. We are moving from just sowing and seed time to a harvest of all the seeds of promise.
CNN: "A 4.1 magnitude earthquake struck Friday night in west central South Carolina, the U.S. Geological Survey reported... The quake was centered 7 miles (12 kilometers) west-northwest of Edgefield..."
One prophetic voice said that Bob Jones' death prophesied there is a "door standing open in Heaven" (Revelation 4:1). The door is now open to the great harvest. We are at the edge of the field (Edgefield).
I believe a large part in the coming great harvest is God anointing and using the arts and entertainment. Even reality TV shows and series are moving to more shows like Duck Dynasty and the History channel's The Bible Series. There is a new interest in America and the world for truth and The Bible. It's being preached in the Church, and it needs to be. It is also being preached through a revival media. I believe Hollywood plays a big part in spreading the message of the Cross.
And Simon answering said unto him, "Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at Thy word I will let down the net."
And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink. Luke 5:5-7 KJV (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
This was a harvest so great that Peter's breakthrough enabled others to step into his blessing. He had to signal for the other boats to help him. Could you imagine getting such a breakthrough that it would be enough to bless you and the rest of Body of Christ?
