The other morning the Lord spoke to me about harvest and greatly encouraged me; His anointing brought a fresh measure of faith to press forward and plow, sow and reap, and He wants me to share it with those who have grown a little weary in the battle!
He has been reminding me of the economy of His Kingdom. We all know the word of God has many scriptures about sowing and reaping; not just in financial things, but in every area of our lives as we choose to sow into the spirit or the flesh. We will bring forth a harvest because of the principle of multiplication. We are under attack and it sometimes seems the enemy is winning, but the Lord says He has heard our prayers and seen our sowing into the Kingdom; there is a mighty outpouring of harvest that will become a sweeping revival as we continue to sow into the Spirit, during harvest!
The Lord often speaks to me through nature. I love to garden, and the principle of multiplication and exponential increase is apparent in nature. One seed produces a plant that bears many seeds for multiplication. An apple has between 5-13 seeds; a mature apple tree can bear 300 apples in a season. This brings 1500 seeds which, if planted, would produce 450,000 apples bearing 2,250,000 seeds! God’s economy is multiplication and exponential increase!
Jesus tells us that the mustard seed is the smallest of all herbs, but is the largest when fully grown.
“Then He said, “To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it? “It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; “but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade.”” (Mark 4:30-32 NKJV)
There are 200,000 brown mustard seeds per pound, and each pound yields a hundred-fold return of 20,000,000 seeds!
The principle of multiplication and exponential increase applies to every area of our lives. What we sow we will reap in multiplied numbers. We will reap from how we use the gifts God has given us to sow into others (Matt. 25:14-30); how we sow our finances (2 Cor. 9:5-10); and in the words we speak. Declaring God’s word brings forth exponential increase to His Kingdom (Is. 55:10-11).
According to Fundersandfounders.com, the average person over the course of his or her lifetime, has the opportunity to impact 80,000 people. If we touched each with the presence of God, and they each did the same, the impact would be incredible for the Kingdom. Be encouraged at the thought of all those you have already touched with the Spirit of the Living God, but don’t stop now!
The Lord is exhorting us to continue; trust He is working even as we are bombarded with negative reports from the enemy. God is doing a mighty work! He is answering our prayers, and fruit is continually being developed for reaping from what we sow. He says, see the fields white for harvest (John 4:35)! All that has been sown faithfully is in acceleration, and there is available to us a continuum of exponential increase. We are in the day of the plowman overtaking the reaper. A mighty revival is coming forth; continue to plow and sow, for a continual flow! Those mountains that seem impossible shall become outcroppings of overflow of the Spirit of the Living God, and the hills will melt as the fat of the olives rendered into anointing oil!
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.” (Amos 9:13, KJV)
