THE COMING SUMMER

I
SPEAK
OF THE

HARVEST
THE GREAT HARVEST TO COME!

FOR YOU SEE
 AS YOU WORK
AND
STRIVE
AND
ADD YOUR PROGRAMS
AND
BUILD YOUR BUILDINGS
ACCORDING TO YOUR PLANS
I AM
ALREADY PLANNING
THE HARVEST
AND
THE BUILDINGS
I
WILL BUILD


FOR YOU SEE 
 FOR
TOO LONG
HAVE YOU PLANNED AND BUILT
TO YOUR OWN SPECIFICATIONS
ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN WISDOM
AND YOU
 MY BODY
HAVE SEPARATED YOURSELVES
FROM EACH OTHER
TO PROMOTE
"FREEDOM OF RELIGION"
BUT

I
TELL YOU TODAY
I
WILL BRING
REAL FREEDOM
FREEDOM
IN
ME!

A FREEDOM
WHICH JOINS YOU TOGETHER
NOT
FOR PROGRAMS AND SOCIALS

BUT
FOR WORSHIP
AND
THE ANOINTED WORD!


FOR TOO LONG
HAVE YOU PRESENTED
TO
ME
STALE WORSHIP
AND

WORSHIP
NOT
FROM THE HEART

BUT

I AM
CALLING OUT
FOR
A
NEW THING
WITHIN MY BODY


I AM
CALLING OUT

FOR
"OUTRAGEOUS" WORSHIP
 ABANDONED WORSHIP

WORSHIP OF THE SPIRIT
WHERE
I AM
THE
ONLY
THING
ON
YOUR MIND AND HEART!!!


YOU PERFORM
AND
YOU DO YOUR PLAYS
AND
BRING IN THE BEST VOICES
BUT

I
TELL YOU TODAY
ONE SMALL CHILD
SINGING A SONG "JESUS LOVES ME"

PLEASES ME
MORE
THAN
ALL
YOUR PRODUCTIONS

WHO

ARE YOU
TRYING TO PLEASE?
FOR WHOM
IS THE
WORSHIP INTENDED?


YES
I
CALL
FOR
A

NEW DAY
WHERE WE NO LONGER NEED
TO SPEAK
OF WHAT CHURCH
YOU ARE FROM

BUT
SIMPLY THAT YOU BELONG
TO
ME!

YES
THE SUMMER IS COMING
AND
THE HARVEST IS RIPE
IT IS
MORE THAN RIPE
AND
MY BODY
IS

PERFORMING
AND
PLANNING
AND
DOING THINGS
THAT
I
HAVE
NOT
CALLED
THEM TO DO!!!

THEY HAVE ALL THESE PLANS
AND
STRATEGIES FOR EVANGELISM
AND

YET, THERE IS
NO POWER!

DIDN'T
THE DISCIPLES
GO OUT
IN

POWER?

DIDN'T

I
TELL THEM
TO WAIT
FOR THE

POWER?

WHY
ARE YOU GOING OUT
WITHOUT IT?
YOU JUST MAKE
MY MESSAGE
A
MOCKERY!!!


NO
 I
WILL CREATE

A
NEW BREED

A BREED
OF
PEOPLE
LIKE
THE
1ST CENTURY CHRISTIANS

A BREED
THAT HAS NOTHING
TO LOSE

A BREED
WHICH LOVES
ME
WITH
THEIR WHOLE
HEART, MIND AND SOUL

I
WILL CREATE

A NEW BREED
OF
SHEPHERDS, TOO
WHO
TRULY HAVE A HEART
FOR
ME

WHO
DO NOT
RAISE UP THEIR OWN NAME
BUT
MINE, ALONE

WHO
DO NOT SIT
AND
PLAN SERMON AFTER SERMON


BUT

WHO

RISE TO THE PODIUM
AND
SPEAK OUT
MY FRESH WORD
FROM
MY MOUTH!


THERE IS NOT TIME

PEOPLE, TO DO THINGS
THE OLD WAY!


THERE IS NOT TIME
TO CONTINUE TO BUILD
YOUR "TOWERS OF BABEL"!


THERE IS NOT TIME
TO PRETEND TO WORSHIP A GOD
WHO YOU DON'T KNOW!


THERE IS NOT TIME!!!!

FOR THE EARTH WILL BEGIN
TO
SHAKE
AND
THE WORLD WILL
BE

SET ABLAZE
AND
FEAR
WILL STRIKE
EVERY
MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD
AND
RIGHT NOW
THE CHURCH HAS
NOTHING
TO OFFER
FOR THESE PEOPLE

SURE
THEY CAN JOIN
A SMALL GROUP
OR

THEY CAN ATTEND
YOUR YEARLY EASTER PROGRAM
OR

THEY CAN GRAB A FEW GROCERIES
AND CLOTHES FROM YOUR READY SUPPLY

BUT
WHAT
CAN YOU DO
FOR THEIR HEARTS?

HOW
CAN YOU
REMOVE THE FEAR
AND CALM THEIR DOUBTS?


HOW
CAN YOU
GIVE THEM HOPE
WHEN SO FEW OF YOU
HAVE ANY HOPE?


AT THIS POINT
WHAT
DO YOU HAVE TO OFFER THEM?
YOUR QUICK PRAYERS
WITH A COUPLE OF "AMENS"
WILL DO

LITTLE
FOR THESE PEOPLE!
