Grass Roots

There has been a great revival in many different and far-reaching places of My Church in years past. This was only but a type of what is to come–seed planted if you will. Notice it was in far-reaching places and spread apart. It is My plan to reach every tribe and every nation; to spread far and wide, as grass roots.

My Bride will reach the lost, the ignorant, ungodly, unsaved–all the same. If you are not sanctified by the Blood of Jesus Christ, you shall perish without hope.

“He entered once for all into the Holy Place, taking not the blood of goats and calves but his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.” Hebrews 9:12

“And just as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:27-28

“And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, then to wait until his enemies should be made a stool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:11-14

Therefore, My Bride, revive those around you,

as you have been taught, so teach others–to the next and the next. As grass roots across the land, and you shall see a celebration building in the hearts as they unite.

Like an ember burning–more fuel to ignite.

The forest fire spreads, reaching those who are dead in their spiritual lack of understanding. Their hearts and minds will be refined; as babes they shall be led.

“And I will lead the blind in a way that they know not, in paths that they have not known I will guide them. I will turn the darkness before them into light, the rough places into level ground. These are the things I will do, and I will not forsake them. They shall be turned back and utterly put to shame, who trust in graven images, who say to molten images, ‘You are our gods.’ Hear, you deaf, and look, you blind, that you may see!” Isaiah 42:16-18

Do not think that what has been lost shall be, for I can revive even the dullest member to life, and then you shall see–with fervent glee–those lost are found.

Rejoicing abounds, a celebration that’s never been seen!

“What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go in search of the one that went astray? And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray.

So it is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” Matthew 18:12-15

“Who among you will give ear to this, will attend and listen for the time to come?” Isaiah 49:23

Do your part–cause it to start!

“For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon your descendants, and my blessing on your offspring. They shall spring up like grass amid waters, like willows by flowing streams. This one will say, ‘I am the Lord’s, another will call himself by the name of Jacob, and another will write on his hand, ‘The Lord’s, and surname himself by the name of Israel.’

Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first, and I am the last; besides me there is no god.'” Isaiah 44:3-6

“‘Shower, O heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness; let the earth open, that salvation may sprout forth, and let it cause righteousness to spring up also; I the Lord have created it.” Isaiah 45:8

“‘Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find'” Matthew 22:9

 

Your Spoken Harvest

The battle is hard and long when you’ve spoken words that are wrong, and planted seeds of disrespect. Words strengthen and bring life or words attack and bind; of which do you choose to speak? Which would you prefer to be said of you?

Do as you would have others do

For what you give will be given unto you, therefore, plant for a harvest of love.

If you speak richly to another, their life will be filled; they in turn will have much to give others, and the fruit you then harvest will be sweet.

Always when you have a need, look to another to plant a seed. When you then meet the need of another, your deed will bless a brother, and your own need will be met as well. Take no thought for your own want, for that is what I have in mind. Rather, be kind and you will soon find, that sweet words are all that you tell.

You choose the feast–

Words that are sweet or harvest yet a bitter pill. For if the words that you find are unkind, likely, you’re speaking them still. The spoken word is your planted seed–

Speak for a harvest you’d rather receive

“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:7-10

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2

“For ‘He that would love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking guile; let him turn away from evil and do right; let him seek peace and pursue it.'” I Peter 3:10-11

“Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love covers a multitude of sins. Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. As each has received a gift employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace; whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:8-11

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and he who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God; for God is love.” I John 4:7-8

“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11

“So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law of the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

“If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.'” John 15:10-14

“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain salvation upon you.” Hosea 10:12
