The year 2010 has ushered us into a new decade in the 21st century. Blessings, grace and prosperity are yours in 2010. It is harvest time!
The Bible tells us: "'Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe. So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested'" (Rev. 14:15-16).
I declare to you: "Prepare your sickle as the Lord of the Harvest releases the harvest for you to reap your portion." Like the men of Issachar, we must know the times and seasons so that we can work them skillfully to our advantage for personal and kingdom advancement.
A Triple 10 Anointing
I believe that the grace of chayil (the Spirit of wisdom, wealth, power and excellence) is upon us. God is releasing a Triple 10 anointing in 2010. The number 10 symbolizes a complete cycle, divine order, nothing missing or lacking, satisfaction of the law for new release. Jesus was 30—triple 10—when He was ready for His new season of ministry, power and purpose. The carpenter was the Messiah.
There was a shift in 2010. You have shifted. You are in a new decade and a new era.
Prepare to reap your harvest in:
1. Salvation—You and your household shall be saved.
The sickle is going forth to cut your loved ones free from yokes of deception and bondage. "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household" (Acts 16:31).
2. Finances—The Lord of the Harvest is declaring to the spirit of Pharaoh, who has stolen and opposed your prosperity with cycles of treachery and loss, "It's payback time."
"The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians" (Ex. 12:36). The children of Israel in one day went from slavery to security; from poverty to prosperity; from ignorance to influence and from passivity to kingdom purpose.
3. Relationships—God is restoring relationships. He is adding new, meaningful relationships and divine connections.
This is what the Lord says: "As when juice is still found in a cluster of grapes and men say, 'Don't destroy it, there is yet some good in it,' so will I do in behalf of my servants; I will not destroy them all" (Is. 65:8). It takes a cluster of grapes to make new wine. God is adding to your cluster of relationships to make new wine.
4. Opportunities—Expect unusual doors of opportunities [to open], and be bold to step out into a new dimension of favor.
"I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name" (Rev. 3:8). You have been faithful, and now you shall certainly reap a great harvest.
Declare your harvest!
You are made in the image of God to speak words of faith and help create your world. Begin to declare your harvest and speak to the mountains of opposition. Use the rod in your mouth to divide seas and break down walls. Say it to see it.
As one chayil tribe, let us believe together and for each other. Let's declare: "This is harvest time. I am ready for my harvest!"
"The Lord said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them'" (Gen. 11:6). Create your new world!
