Now comes the part none of us want to hear, when we need deliverance from our carnal self that wants to be a couch potato, relaxing without a care….while all the time the world is going down deeper into darkness and our Beloved King needs us to do the work of the ministry.

Songs 2:10, “My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. (11) For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. (12) The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. (13) The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell. Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!

Rise Up! – Rise up out of your comfort zone and secure place. She does not want to take risks, and face challenges and spiritual warfare. She is happy to just be at the banqueting house, even if He is not there.

  • Eph 5:14 (TPT) “Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from the dead and the Anointed One will shine his light into you!”

One morning as I was just waking up I heard “Arise My love, My fair one”. God was calig me to arise out of my bed of comfort. I knew that song, I knew that verse, but where was it? I had the CD from Israel and went searching to find it, finally going on iTunes for search. I FOUND IT! https://youtu.be/_47T8kwEnBc?t=1 Karen Davis, “Arise” from Israel My Beloved. Make sure you  listen to her husband’s voice speaking Arise My Love in the middle of the song. Just those few words caused me to rise up out of my comfort and follow what He had for me for that day.

“For  Lo the Winter is past and the rain is gone” (I would love to see TS Imelda be gone. It was 2 years ago we flooded with Harvey and now our friends in Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange are flooding. Please pray. They are just now getting over Harvey)

  • In the Middle East, the winter is dark, short days, cold rains, sometimes snow and nothing grows. This is symbolic of fruitless times in our spiritual walk.

He now gives prophetic signs of the soon coming harvest:

  • Flowers appear appear on the grape vine, signalling the soon coming harvest. We have so many signs that we are in the last of the Last Days and I am really looking forward to that promised “Harvest of Souls”, across the world!
    • Matthew 6:28, Flowers are symbols of God’s care
  • Workers sing in Harvest because it is a joyful time! Raise a Hallelujah! Singing always comes before and accompanies revival
  • Voice of the Turtledove is heard at Harvest time. The Turtledove is a bird of passage. It appears in Judea in early Spring, when the leaves begin to come out, the flowers opening, and everything looking lovely and beautiful. It remains until Summer is gone; and then flies away to a warmer climate to spend the winter.
  • Fig tree puts forth green figs just before the mature figs. We are going to see pockets of harvest before the Full Promised Harvest of Souls, but we are so ready for any sign of reaping this Harvest!
    • Watchman Nee taught, “The fig is a winter fruit which remains on the branches until spring. It denotes fruit which has passed through the winter of death and survived it. It is the fruit which we acquire through the discipline of the Cross and the hard conditions of severe trials. It is fruit carried over into the afterwards of richer experience in Christ.” Beautiful!
  • Grapes smell fragrant at Harvest time. This indicates the life of a believer at this stage gives forth fragrance and shows promise of very much fruitfulness! Our Savior has so much confidence in us, just as He saw Peter as a Rock!

Now that Harvest is in sight, Jesus is calling us love names to woo us into coming with Him into the Harvest field. He is Lord of the Harvest. The 2nd time He says, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!”
