Matthew 9:37,38 - "Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
The Greek word translated "send out" is "ekballo", which at the root level means to "drive out." "Ballo" is where we derive the English word for "ballistic." There is force and sense of urgency, a driving out, a thrusting out of laborers into His harvest.
We see this same word used in the context of Mark 1:12, describing Christ's actions after He received the infilling of the Holy Spirit at the Jordan River where, with the Spirit now in Him, "Immediately the Spirit DROVE Him into the wilderness."
Jesus isn't going to thrust us out ill-equipped -- He is going to give us His effectual wonder-working power and authority to help bring in the harvest quickly. He's giving us boldness to cast out every hindrance to breakthrough, to restore those DREAMS AND VISIONS of long ago that we thought were lost.
He's empowering and sending us out! And quickly!
Matthew 10:7,8 - "And as you go, preach, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.""
As you go, preach!" God calls every believer to preach the Gospel with power. God will give us a VISION of His purpose for us, commission us, and release us to fulfill it (our DESTINY).
Jeremiah 20:9b - "But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not."
His word will be in your heart like a burning fire, shut up in your bones. You won't be able to hold it back. When the Word becomes as a burning fire in your heart and bones your focus will be on harvest and it won't be denied you. With the workings of the Word in you, you'll become a slayer of any giant that stands in your way of harvest. Even if there's a wall, you'll leap right over it, slaying the giants to bring forth the victory.
They will hear of the works of Christ, see the works of Christ, know the works of Christ, and receive the good news of the Gospel. They will see the light of the fire of the Word burning within us.
James 1:17 - "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with who there is no variation or shadow of turning."
John 12:36a - "While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light."
John 8:12 - "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."
As God's child, believing in the Son, and with His Spirit in me, I have the light!
I am a son of Light!
The Lord of the harvest empowers me to harvest in desolate places to see His harvest.
I see God releasing me into MY DESTINY in Christ
