“He is the one of whom it is written: Look, I’m sending my messenger before you, who will prepare your way before you.” (Matthew 11:10 – CEB)
On August 2, 2021, I dreamed there were many people in some sort of room that we had all stayed in, which looked like an army type barracks or some type of training center for training that we had been going through. We were all getting ready to go back to our home towns so I began to help everyone prepare for this. It seemed to me that we were going to take back whatever we had learned there to the places that we came from.
As I was helping people pack, washing up dishes, and just doing whatever there was to do that was lacking, all of a sudden a woman sitting on a top bunk handed me a short shofar that looked square on the end. I didn’t think I could blow it but to my surprise, when I put it to my lips, I began to blow it perfectly and made many sounds with it. End of dream.
When I woke up, I Googled “square shofar” and sure enough, there were these shofars that were short like the one in the dream and the end was square. I knew they blew the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah so I was looking up when it begins this year and it begins on the eve of September 6th and ends on the eve of September 8th.
I found this on a Website called PJ Library:
“The shofar is sounded 100 times during a traditional Rosh Hashanah service. And a long and loud shofar blast marks the end of the fast day of Yom Kippur. While the blower must first take a big breath, the shofar only sounds when the air blows out. This is a symbol for Rosh Hashanah: we must turn inward to fix ourselves so we can then burst out and contribute to the world.”
I believe God was speaking through this dream that there are many of us that have been in a school of sorts and many of of us have been in a training in the last season to prepare us especially in America to breathing Him in, in our times of testing, getting filled with His breath and now to go back to our home towns and communities to bring what God has given us in these times and exhale it as a sound that the HARVEST HAS BEGUN IN THE NEW YEAR! We are to breathe out a sound of “PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD” IN OUR LAND!
MY MESSAGE BACK TO ME:
When I finally opened my messages that morning on Facebook, I received this message in my message request box that I only open when I have enough time but felt led to open this one message that day from a Pastor who lives in New Zealand, who as far as I know I had never spoken to and was not friends with on Facebook. Here is what I read when I opened it:
“I hear the Lord say that this is to be sent forth! He said that “the seed that you have sown in the past is being called forth in this season of your crossing over.”
You have been through some things that you thought would kill you and you thought you might not recover from, but God said “I am going to restore the years that the locust has eaten, for My word does not come back void, but accomplishes what it is sent there to do and what you sowed in your earlier days is now going to come into fruition. Many have been in a pruning season so that now in this hour you will bring forth the “much fruit!”
The correction that I brought into your life was not to kill you, but to heal you!! So therefore now I will bring forth the seed of the past that was sown in love and I will multiply your seed sown in this new season and it shall begin to spring forth together! Get ready the reason for the last season is about to be made manifest to you and why you had to even become a seed sown into the ground will be understood.
And a great death came in the spirit and you mourned a great mourning, but I tell you unless a seed falls to the ground and dies it abides alone, but if it dies it will bring forth much fruit!! You have allowed this process and yet have still pursued Me with all of your heart and now the time of the great harvest is upon you!! I say to you the reaper will overtake the sower in this hour!! For this is the time of the rain, the former rain and the latter rain in one month. This is the time of the harvest of harvesters! This is your time for multiplication! This is the time when a small one will become a hundred and a hundred will become a thousand. For My math is not your math! My multiplication is not limited! I give you the heathen for your inheritance so enlarge the place of your tent, for you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left and your seed shall inherit the Gentiles in this day!
Get ready you are about to multiply with the multiplication of heaven. Know this and receive it, for your God will accomplish it in your time!! This is the set time to favor Zion!! Sing Oh Barren, you that did not bear!!!”
For some reason as I read that and since it was after my dream, I did not read or just skimmed over the part where he said that it was a word I had written and he had saved. Then I got down to the bottom of it and it said this…
And then he said this…
“The cry …. the death…. the anguish… the pressing and searching. I found this 2 days ago. The new is just breaking. So I just felt to write briefly.”
Folks! I was so surprised to find out, even though he made it plain that I wrote those words. It was as if God was speaking directly to me about that dream in this word He sent back to me years after I had written it.
My eyes fixed on the words “you will know the reason for the last season!” And, “and now the time of the great harvest is upon you!! I say to you the reaper will overtake the sower in this hour!”
Next and immediately after reading this I received another word from another pastor in America who I have known but had not spoken to for a few years and it was this..
”Felt led to speak into your life today – don’t look back – continue go make disciples in Jesus name, the outcast and the lost are seeking spirit and truth!”
THEN THE LORD SPOKE
“This is the season when your seed sown will be multiplied and shall come forth as the greatest harvest the world has ever seen! It is time to BREATHE OUT WHAT YOU HAVE INHALED AS YOU SAT AT MY FEET IN YOUR TIME OF NEED! A new day is upon you! A new year begins on the feast!
The great harvest has begun here and there, but My Spirit will begin to be poured out on Rosh Hashanah and will snowball and will get bigger and bigger until it covers the earth! Miracles, signs and wonders will now become hard to deny because My people will move by faith and not fear! No weapon formed against them shall prosper as they move with boldness and faith in the next year ahead! Do not doubt what I am about to do through you!
The words you have sown in love and truth will begin to catch up with you and overtake you! You will soon have a new boldness to prophesy because you will have new faith in what I am speaking to you! You shall see it in the days ahead! Get ready because the great outpouring and multiplication is upon you and your seed!
Yes it is time to blow the shofar and tell them… THE GREAT HARVEST IS UPON YOU!”
