Be Ready For The Latter Rain

Psalm 118:5-9New Living Translation (NLT)

5 In my distress I prayed to the Lord,
    and the Lord answered me and set me free.
6 The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear.
    What can mere people do to me?
7 Yes, the Lord is for me; he will help me.
    I will look in triumph at those who hate me.
8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in people.
9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord  than to trust in princes

Psalm 91New Living Translation (NLT)

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.
If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”

A Dream I Had Some Time Ago

A Dream I Had Some Time Ago

I then found myself on a large farm with a huge barn. There was hay everywhere. Many people were working the farm gathering the hay. I was there trying to convince a childhood friend that he could change his path, however he kept getting distracted and was afraid his commander would see him talking to me.

I was then in a field. There were many people gathered in this field. I was walking and talking with somebody, but I did not see who. We were in charge of bringing the workers together at this particular farm. Again there was hay everywhere; the hay was what we were gathering the people to harvest in.

In this field, there were groups of what appeared to be “indigenous” people. Like the benevolent form of the malevolent tribal people from the mountains. These people looked to be from different parts of the globe. They were gathering hay by themselves in groups. I looked over as to ask them to come meet us at the farm house for a meeting. 

The person I was walking with, said to me. 

“They will only come on their own terms”. These words settled in my heart. “They will only come on their own terms”.

As a large group gathered, made up of many nationalities and ethnic groups, in front of the little quaint farm house that was in this field, there was a sense of team work and purpose. It was a beautiful scene like the gathering of the saints, on a summer night.
