Time to glean
These past years the commission from my Lord Jesus has narrowed from a broad “shotgun” type ministry of the whole world, to a more focused target. Some would call me a missionary, not to an underdeveloped country but a missionary to the United States of America, primarily to the Gentile Church of the United States of America. Things have changed here and I am to be a witness to the fact that just because “man” changes things does not mean that God endorses those changes.
Time to take inventory of this once great nation; to see and hear what the Lord Jesus has to say about what to speak and what to do. “Father God I ask in Jesus Name that You would lead and guide us as we take inventory, let us stay focused on your tour, help us not to get distracted. In those places where it may seem dark and hopeless; hold our hand, give us strength and make Your purposes clear and sure. Amen”
There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NIV)
Men and women who have called themselves spokesmen for God: have, are and continue to rape the sheep of God. These false teachers have left hundreds of thousands of people maimed, hurt, confused and broke. False Evangelists have physically gone from city to city operating in a spirit of witchcraft and stealing what little God’s sheep had. This destruction continues today through the airwaves. People have been paralyzed through lies, false hope and mind altering substances.
A word from our Lord (even though this may apply to other regions in the world, remember the context is the USA)
“This is the hour of final gleaning just as Ruth (Ruth 2:3) gleaned behind the reapers in the field of Boaz. Walk through the fields says our Lord, lift up the rubble, call out one more time, and communicate again with loved ones, even those who call you enemy.
Listen; listen for a breath, for a heartbeat for any interest in Truth. Reach out with faith; faith to bring little ones to salvation, faith to heal the sick and to cast out demons, faith to pray for a sound mind.
In this hour of final gleaning do not be distracted by the promoting of large crowds; glean the one, glean the two be the good servant (Matthew 24:45).”
