Its harvest time

by Rabbi Hector Gomez on March 25th, 2016

"Amos 9 – It's Harvest Time!"  
As we all know, the number 8 is the number of new beginnings, and not surprisingly, when I saw it, the first verse talks about ripe fruit, so I knew it was confirmation.
In those first verses, Amos 8:1-2, God asked Amos a question, a simple question, which in turn Amos answered with what he saw – a basket of fruit...ripe, summer fruit. The next thing the Lord says seems completely unconnected, which was, "The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by and spare them anymore." Knowing that God would clear up the mystery and make His intentions known, I continued on. I finished the remainder of Amos 8, and when my eyes fell upon Amos 9, I heard the Lord breathe, "THE HARVEST!"
 I know many including me and our ministry that there has been recently a dry spell – i.e., a famine – and as Amos 8:11 says, not a famine for food, but a famine "for hearing the words of the Lord."  As a nation there has been a famine of the word of God not being taught correctly and many are in famine when it comes to the word!
Why?
God is Sifting Away Impurities for a GREAT Harvest
I believe that God was leading me to this place, the place of ripe, summer fruit – the place of harvest. God was showing me that my fruit is the Word of the Lord, the prophetic word teachings that we have been correctly sharing and bringing light to what is going on around us and around the word in these end times! God is saying  NOW is your harvest time!
A sign of double harvest, in Amos 9:9, the Lord says that He will sift you – me, us – as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet the least kernel shall not fall upon the earth and be lost from His sight. Just this morning, as I was still asking Him for a prophetic word, I said, "Lord, if there is anything in me that is blocking Your word, please show it to me!" Believe me, that is a prayer that He wants to hear, and an answer that He wants to give to you! He led me to Amos 8 and 9 – for you!
He has His eye on you! He is allowing things to happen in this new season, but He is doing it. It is not the enemy, it is the Lord. The reason, my friends, is that He is watchful, because He says that, "All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword..." (Amos 9:10). He is making your sins die by the word – His Word. He is sifting the impurities out of your life, and causing your sins to die by the Sword – the Word of God!
In our congregation and end even in Leadership God showing us a sign – in the spirit – that there were many dying spiritual deaths and many spirits had to leave. Just like vultures consume what is dead ! The vultures were there to consume the spirits as they were leaving !
In the same way, many may still be undergoing a type of "spiritual death" in order for the Lord to release the harvest to you that He wants to release. He is cleansing you, fine-tuning you, removing the last little specks and wrinkles.
Now is a Time of Unprecedented Fruitfulness!
But, good news! He says in Amos 9:13 that the plowman is overtaking the reaper! Acceleration! What would have taken years before is now happening in real time! The Amplified Bible says, "...[that is, everything heretofore barren and unfruitful shall overflow with spiritual blessing]." Listen up everyone who is lining up with His word, this is where you are headed, to a time of unprecedented fruitfulness that is overflowing with goodness and blessing! God promises in verse 15, "'And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be torn up out of their land which I gave them,' says the Lord your God."
Your land is here at R.E.C./Beit Tikkun! The promises of God are here! Whether it is in your business, our ministry, our  relationships, or whatever – it's here! It will be fruitful, and no man will be able to pluck you up out of it. God is simply removing the last little bit of impurity so that you may experience it in its fullness, for His glory!
This also includes former endeavors that went sour. As an example, I used to be in the corporate world, but circumstances happened to cause me to remove me from the corporate world, which lead me into ministry, so I AM sure that God orchestrated it! Anyway, the Lord has been encouraging me to pick up that mantle again, the mantle of business, God business, but this time to allow Him to operate it, using His ideas and His processes. His ideas are different than mine. He has been showing me some things, building upon what I have already been doing for Him. The Master Builder is at it again!
Just like for me, He has plans to bless you and prosper you (see Jeremiah 29:11)! He is working in your life to bring you to that place of overflowing fruitfulness. Allow Him to work in your life and remove the last little bit of dross. It will be well worth the effort! Expect it in 2016!
