Now is the time to bring in the Harvest! – Brian Lake

Now is the time to bring in the Harvest!

“Jesus said to them, My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already ripe for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.” (John 4: 34-38)

All of Heaven is waiting for us to move out into the Harvest fields. There is a great cloud of witnesses who are cheering us on from the balconies of Heaven. I know that my father and sister are there interceding for my wife and me. Saints, this summer could be our last opportunity to witness to the lost, before major world events make evangelism nearly impossible.

Beginning with Pentecost Sunday (May 31) up until Rosh Hashanah (September 19), there are only 88 days left this year (5780) to bring in the Harvest. In the Bible, eight is the number of new beginnings. This number (88) excludes the Three Weeks of Sorrow.

In Jesus’ name, ask the Father to help you find at least one other Believer to partner with before you head out into the Harvest fields.

Every morning, ask the Father to cover you with His complete armor (Ephesians 6) and the mantle of humility (I Peter 5: 5-7). Also ask for His wall of fire (Zechariah 2: 5) to surround you as you begin your work.

Take evangelistic tools with you to reach as many people as possible. Those tools may include Bibles, Gospel tracts, food, drink, music, chairs, blankets, anointing oil, microphones, and loudspeakers. You can put together a lightweight sound system using your smart phone, a Bluetooth microphone, and a “Skullcandy Air Raid” (or similar) loudspeaker. Be sure to test the system before you go.

Some prefer to stand on a box and ask the Holy Spirit to anoint their voice with His power. I observed this when I visited the city of York, Great Britain in 2004. A courageous young woman stood on a box in the center of the city park and preached the Gospel with all of her heart. She spoke with power and authority. Her voice carried all over the park. A young lad on a bicycle was mocking her, but quieted down after I spoke to and prayed for him.

Also ask the Father to put seven people on your heart to witness to. Pray for them diligently each day, and ask Him for opportunities to share the Gospel.

Ask the Father to show you where to begin your evangelistic work. Pray for Him to bless you with signs, wonders, miracles, and mighty works. Ask Him to send His Holy Spirit and His warrior and healing angels to assist you.

When you arrive and set up at your destination, begin by addressing Satan and all of the spirits in his kingdom that are within the sound of your voice. In the name of Jesus, bind and cancel all of their assignments against you. Command them to leave and report to the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are approached by law enforcement before you finish, be cooperative and leave the area quietly. Do not be a poor witness or bring shame on the Lord Jesus. The type of music you choose to play and the volume level can make a big difference in this. Terry MacAlmon’s CD “The Sound of Heaven” will invite the Holy Spirit’s perfect peace to the entire area. Some other “Christian” music, however, will have the opposite effect. Ask the Father for guidance, if you are required to obtain a permit from the municipality for evangelistic work.

Preach the Gospel (John 3: 16-21 and Ephesians 2: 1-10), ask for a decision, and pray with those who want to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. Listen for the Lord’s guidance in how to pray for each new Believer.

The Three Weeks of Sorrow begin on July 9, (17 Tammuz) and end on July 31 (9th of Av). These are both fast days. Take advantage of this time to gear up for the “finale” weeks of your evangelistic work before Rosh Hashanah. Also use the time for prayer, fasting, and rest.

“And as you go, preach, saying ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” (Matthew 10: 7-8)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14: 12-14)

“… the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” (Daniel 11: 32)

All glory to the Lamb and the One who sits on the throne!

    THE LORD DOES “NOT LIKE YOU COMPROMISING WITH EVIL”..YOU HAVE TO EXERSIZE YOUR FREEDOM AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AT ALL TIMES,JUST remember what the BIBLE SAYS,FEARFUL and COWARDS will not be getting into heaven,SO STAND UP TO SATANS MINIONS, THE POLICE GANGS,THEY SOLD THEIR SOUL TO SATAN FOR BREAD CRUMBS,they won’t be able to buy it back…

    Brian Lake: ‘Speed of Sound’ Cover…1Thess.4:16-18…Most(of this group) go up…however, a segment stays back to bring in the harvest. Performing the “greater works” Jesus spoke of……What we will look like, Is. 60:1-3. Agnostics,skeptics…need to see miracles…and boy will they…we will give them something tangible to hold on to, as they will have to choose: Temporary freedom, with the mark or it’s refusal, this refusal will =death. The disciples were in hiding, defeated…then Jesus’ miracle of resurrection… sold them. ‘They’ did not believe the eyewitnesses…’they’ had to see for themselves…right now, I hand out printouts from 444 Prophecy…it’s the best tool, as is this article. Nice to see your shoulders squared and about the masters work… Daniel IHS

    I worked in the last 30 years with other people but also alone. When you are alone, you are more flexible and people don’t think, you are a Witness of Jehova, who are always two. I have 2 flyers about Endtime. You find them in http://www.rettedich.ch also in English.

    Arizona : People often say, “What would Jesus do.” Only a programmed robot could do that. Rather, What would King David do? A man after God’s own heart. The turn the other cheek business, is towards insults..walk away. A man who won’t provide or protect his wife and children is worse than a heretic. So, we should not have fought (1770’s) the British, according to Romans 13, though, we were ‘just’ to eliminate Hitler. The USA Gov’t is moving close to the Red Coats and Jack booted thugs/Nazis. The battle line runs through every heart…Romans 4-“For he is the minister of God to thee for good. Until the Gov’t is evil, then, your position is invalid. . That respect is conditional…Your salvation is conditional…Rev. 3:5… you can have your name blotted out from the book of life, for evil. It cuts both ways… the 2nd amendment was put there ,in case the leaders became evil. Romans 12:18 “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. IF IT BE POSSIBLE…I know a Lt. Col in the Army who led a team of snipers- who acted in foreign lands- which wiped out child porn producers… those Gov’t were no longer ordained of God when they partnered up with the Devil .. IT’s conditional, just like salvation!

  7. Your message was great, in that evangelization and revival are truly needed now more than ever. Yet, we still have to adhere to the laws of the land. If you want to do a street service, get the proper permits, if you are going to have electronic equipment with audible sound. The reason for this, is that the noise generated cannot be above a certain level. Yes, we do always have to follow: “What would Jesus do” in everything we do. Given the same scenario, Jesus would follow the laws of the land. As stated in Mathew 22:21 Jesus said “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” Romans 13:1 “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. Also, the Bible speaks decisively on this issue. Romans 13:1-2 says: “Obey the government, for God is the One who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the law of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow.” So that goes with the government and police also.
