    Valley of Decision and a time of HARVEST!

    Post by Susan on Thu Jan 15, 2009 7:12 pm

    This afternoon, I felt the need to take a nap. I laid down, and found myself praying, and as I was praying I was asking the LORD to REVEAL HIMSELF to me. I was praying about the events that are happening in Gaza and in Israel. And I was praying for lost souls to know JESUS, as I do. As I prayed, I drifted off to sleep. Upon waking up, I heard the words..."many are in the Valley of Decision".

    I knew immediately that this was an answer to my prayers. I knew that verse, and I once had a little heart shaped plate, that was covered in a map. One of the valley's on the map, near the center, was the Valley of Decision. So, I decided to look up the scripture:

    Joel 3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

    GOD is calling us, to pray for those that are in the VALLEY of DECISION. In looking at the scriptures in context, you see that it describes the time in which we are living. Let's look at the verses before the onees above:

    Joel 3:1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. 3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. 4 Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompence? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompence upon your own head; 5 Because ye have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried into your temples my goodly pleasant things: 6 The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. 7 Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompence upon your own head: 8 And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the LORD hath spoken it. 9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: 10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. 11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. 12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.

    So, in reading this we see that boys are sold as prostitutes....girls are sold for the price of a drink...in the streets outside my home, I can TESTIFY, that these things are indeed happening! GOD HELP US. Lots are being cast for Jerusalem, and for Israel, nations gather against her. These things are happening as we speak!

    In verse 9 we see wars and rumors of wars, happening in almost every corner of the world:

    9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: 10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. 11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.

    Now on with the last of the Chapter. In the following scriptures we see how things in the heavens will be as signs and wonders. GOD ALMIGHTY will let out a MIGHT ROAR out of ZION! Did you know that scientist just this past week released information about a ROARING in the HEAVENS? The article is located on this forum under Signs in the Heavens forum. It is a SIGN for the HOPE of HIS PEOPLE! GOD is preparing a way, for Israel, to defeat her enemies. The LORD will cleanse their land.

    Joel 3:15 The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. 16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. 17 So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. 18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth out of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim. 19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion.

    Now back to the Valley of Decision...

    Joel 3:13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

    GOD is calling workers into HIS HARVEST. HE has prepared hearts, to receive JESUS as their PERSONAL SAVIOR and MESSIAH. Are you willing to work in the FIELDS OF THE LORD. FOR the HARVEST is READY!

    Matthew 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

    Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

    John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.

    Revelation 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

    Two questions.

    First, for those that are seeking an answer:

    Are you in the VALLEY of DECISION?

    Second, for those of us, who WILLINGLY want to SERVE the LORD:

    Are you ready to go into the FIELDS of the LORD'S HARVEST and REAP those that are ready to make a decision?
