TREASURE MAPS FOR THE HARVEST
A word penned by Joni Ames
(Note: The Lord gave me this word a while back but re-ignited it tonight as a now word.)
The Hunters and the Fishermen are being gathered throughout the whole earth for a huge task. We might call them evangelists or missionaries, but they are hunters and fishermen - they are the gatherers of souls of our day. It is the commissioning of an epic evangelistic army for the great commission to bring in the biggest harvest of all time.
“Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says the Lord, “and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. (Jeremiah 16:16)
Some of them are very young but some of them are very old. I heard the old ones say to each other, “This is our last chance. Whether it is because we are so old that we are going to soon die or whether it is because the end is near for the earth, I do not know and it does not matter. What matters is that we must complete our assignments before our own time is up.”
I saw and heard a huge shofar in the sky above the darkness of land. The trumpet of the Lord is being sounded over the areas of Harvest even now. Those who are bringing it in and those who are being brought in will both hear it.
“Fear not!” says the Spirit of the Lord. “For I am coming for you, my Lost ones! You shall not be lost forever.”
I saw the old prophets and evangelists in Heaven who have gone before us sitting at tables. The tables would become like movie screens showing what looked like a GPS map and then a visual of particular areas of harvest. I then saw those scenes become as treasure maps to be given out. They were treasure maps of where the souls were that were to be brought into the kingdom. Treasures in earthen vessels. (2 Corinthians 4:7)
They were speaking with the Angel Messengers and sending them to tell the seers of our day to gather the evangelists and give them their treasure maps of souls and commission them to where the next harvest field assignments would be where they were to be sent.
I heard it said to the older evangelists who are still alive to grab and take the younger ones with them to be apprentices in training as they go. They will go to both new and old places. They will even bring in a second harvest in places where people thought the Harvest was done. But the Messenger said there should be a second and even a third harvest even in those areas.
Some of the areas they were being sent to had been devastated through natural events. In some spots there were wars going on. Other places had been passed over many times before now because they were so small that others considered them to be insignificant to go to. But they are not insignificant to The Lord. God’s Word still stands. He is sending His Harvesters into the highways and byways to bring them in.
“Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23)
Some cities of gloom and doom will become Cities of Refuge. (Ref. Joshua 20) They are not places where people will be free to commit sin. They will be cities of refuge where people are brought to salvation. Even now their framework has been being established by what looks completely opposite.
“Where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.” (Romans 5:20b)
Many are being tested in this season. The Lord is not only gathering in the lost, He is shoring up those Treasures who have been faithful and yet experiencing much warfare and testing.
As Moses said to his people in Exodus 20:20, The Lord says to you, “Do not fear; for God has come to test you, (so) that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.”
Dwelling in and upon The Word of God is vital.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”
I believe these things have already begun. Also that I am to encourage you by letting you know what I saw so that you may know He is not through with you yet.
God says to the prophets who have been prophesying a billion soul harvest - This isn’t a one man show. Since you know that’s my heart, start seeking to know which fields are ripe and begin taking the hand of the evangelists, give them their maps, and help to thrust them forward into their purpose.
You are alive for such a time as this. We are entering into adventure filled times. Don’t give up. You have a part in it all. You are being cheered on from the balconies of Heaven (Hebrews 12:1) as you are launched into this amazing season. The best is yet to come!
