The prophets Isaiah, Joel, and Amos all saw a time of great harvest coming, but they did not live to see the fulfillment because it was not for their time. Here we are today, thousands of years later, and it’s still ahead of us, coming at the end of this age.
Harvests are usually limited to one season, only about four months of the year, giving plenty of time for the reapers to gather it all before the next season comes, but Amos saw a harvest coming that is so large, the reapers will not have time to gather it before the next season when it’s time for the plowman to break up the ground for sowing again. It will be so plentiful, so fruitful, so abundant, it will seem to have no end in sight, just year round harvesting.
Amos saw the vineyards will be producing so many grapes, the mountains will be dripping with sweet wine as it will be running down the hills. That’s a picture of extreme overflow, too much to consume for ourselves, too much to contain, too much to store away. It just keeps flowing and flowing until it overflows, running down the hills until entire mountains are dripping with wine.
“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord, “When the plowman will overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; when the mountains will drip sweet wine and all the hills will be dissolved.
(Amos 9:13 NASB)
I believe it will manifest in both the natural and spiritual realms because the one will be needed to bring in the other. In other words, it’s going to require natural resources, it’s going to cost lots of money, to pay for the work of spreading the message of the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Satellites cost money. International broadcasting costs money. Distribution of food and clothing costs money. So we can’t have the one without the other, but we’re going to have both, just like Isaiah saw, so much glory, so much material and spiritual abundance. He saw the wealth of the nations coming upon God’s people in such abundance, it’s going causing many people, even kings, to be drawn to them like a magnet. (Isaiah 60:1-5) Joel saw the hills will be flowing with milk, which could only be possible if there’s a great abundance of cattle making the milk, which could only be possible if there’s a great abundance of food and land to take care of all the cattle, which could only be possible if there’s a great abundance of money to pay for all that. (Joel 3:18)
This kind of stuff offends many people, but instead of being shocked and surprised, we should be expecting it because it’s nothing new. For example, the Queen of Sheba heard so much about the great wealth of Solomon’s kingdom, she had to see it for herself, but when she went there and saw it, it exceeded her expectations so much, it took her breath away. God has repeatedly manifested His glory upon His people who faithfully follow Him by walking in His ways, but the prophets saw a time coming when God’s glory will manifest in the earth on a larger scale than ever before.
The harvest will bring breathtaking glory on a scale far exceeding anything the world has seen before, just as unprecedented trouble is coming upon the world at the same time. For that reason, the harvest will be unusual and will look different from anything we’ve ever seen before, but it will also be unusual because of new ways of harvesting. I believe that’s an important point which God wants us to consider because He has been warning us about it. I believe He will lead us into the new ways as we follow His directions.
Paul Keith Davis Prophetic Vision:
Paul Keith Davis, founder of White Dove Ministries, received a prophetic vision of the end-time harvest warning him it will look different. The following is a transcript of his testimony.
Another realm came down into my suite and I was no longer sitting on the couch, but I was somewhere else and I found myself standing in what looked like a football field, an outside auditorium, like a football field. The place was packed with people. People were dressed as they would be in the 1960’s.
To my left, I could hear a speaker out on the field speaking and it was clearly recognizable. It was the voice of Billy Graham. He was preaching the gospel and I was watching the people and I heard the song, Just As I Am, beginning to be sung and people were making their way very politely and orderly down to the football field and they were giving their life to the Lord.
And all of a sudden, in my experience, a voice spoke and said, “What’s coming will not be like that.”
He shares this at the 7-minute mark of the following video.
Paul Keith’s vision requires no interpretation. What’s coming in the great end-time harvest will look a lot different than the old Billy Graham meetings.
New Ways of Harvesting:
I received a dream last night confirming what he saw. I saw a far different way of evangelizing coming in the future. In the dream, I was explaining to some people a new plan for spreading the gospel. These co-laborers with me were eager to hear about it and eager to implement the plan.
It called for high tech equipment, placing sensors on people’s faces to generate something new, a representation of them in computer graphics, similar to what Hollywood has been doing in movies like Planet of the Apes to create video graphics showing computer generated apes with human facial expressions. Our plan called for using this kind of technology to spread the gospel by infiltrating groups of people in settings where we would have a platform where our message would be well received.
I had learned about large groups of parents networked together through their school system, so they were our first target group. I was shown a large metro area somewhere in the middle of the United States where there were already over one million parents in the network, and that was just in one city. There were similar networks all over the nation, so our plan was to infiltrate all of them eventually. We were going to use our high-tech equipment to become insiders, members of their group. Then once we had secured their trust and confidence, we would lead them to the Lord.
It was unlike anything I had ever seen or heard about before. We knew the grand scale of this project would require lots of money, but we never even gave that a thought because we had more than enough money to pay for everything we needed to do. Money was no obstacle for us.
Perhaps this elaborate plan was meant to be taken literally, but I believe God revealed it to me for the same reason He took Paul Keith Davis into the 1960’s Billy Graham crusade, to show what’s coming will not look like anything we’ve ever seen before. I believe He wants us to be open to follow Him in new directions, and doesn’t want us to try to force things to look like they used to look. Our part of the job is to remain open to following Him as He leads us into new ways of doing things and if we’ll just do our part, He’ll take care of the rest, doing what only He can do, multiplying every seed sown until the harvest becomes so great, so abundant, so glorious, it takes our breath away.
