The Year of Gathering
As THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, I say unto you, Look to the Salmon and obtain knowledge. As the life cycle is of the Salmon so it is for my Church. The Salmon, is born and leaves its comfort area, only to return to make ready a new generation, so has it been for my church. The reward is great as one that prevails. It is of my purpose and of my plan says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS! It is all about the Harvest. Upstream, against all odds, all of the birth pangs, are but for an appointed end! TO GIVE BIRTH!
My house is to be used for a birthing center, and not just to give birth, but to nurture, care for and provide for my remnant, Says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS! Many have been scattered abroad because of abuse, but this is “THE YEAR OF GATHERING”, I am calling my run-a way’s to come home. The reconciliation shall be great. Increase, Increase, increase, this is the year of increase. Increase of awareness, increase in trust, increase in the fruit, as well as increase in harvest. Those which have scattered are returning, yes even now. THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS says today, it is a supernatural gathering, it is of me. As I call, many will respond and when they come they will be, oh so hungry.
Many of the flock have not been fed a balanced diet, this too is in the change, and it is MY gathering. There will be a new trust. My remnant will once again begin to trust one another. My remnant once again will trust the Pastors that I have appointed, for I have placed my anointing upon the new, both to the Shepherd and to the fold. The time of whoring is coming to an abrupt end. My church is to be without spot or wrinkle, yet it has been mingled with the ways of the world. Oh says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, I am a just God and I have heard the cry of my remnant and have answered that cry.
Prepare for increase says THE LORD. I build my remnant on revelation, yes be prepared for new revelation, you will have a new awareness of my love. As that awareness explodes within, it will ignite a desire to give without. I know you; I have set you apart and have called you by name. Turn your heart to total obedience for the reward will be great. You will walk in the Supernatural power of my anointing. When you walk thru the water, I will be there, in the fiery trials of life- you’ll not be burned, for I am with you, ALL THE WAY! I am THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, learn what this means and prevail. You will do exploits for me!
REMEMBER, REMEMBER, REMEMBER, all of the glory is Mine, without Me you can do nothing, says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. I will not share My Glory with another. The calling is an election sure! The harvest is great, but where are my harvesters. Do not be weary and listen not to scoffers, it will come to pass even as I have spoken. Discouragement comes not from me and has no place in you.
Be a people of faith! Faith will cause it to come to pass. Be bold be strong and know that I am with you and in you.
The gathering is Mine- look to Me, I am that I am! This will come to pass, but not without requirements. My requirement for you is DETERMINATION: Be determined to increase, determined to win, determined that you will not give into the easy way. The easy way is downstream; the easy way leads to destruction. I have not chosen you to destruction, but to victory. Victory is for the strong-so be strong in me says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
Preparation requires diligence; plowing, planting and watching. All are hard work says The Lord-Harvesting also requires work, but oh the joy that comes in the morning. Morning is on the brink. Look for it, wait for it and be filled with anticipation. Look up, Look up, coming from the north, look to the path to the south, the east and to the west. All paths are filled with my remnant and are coming home even now. Look for them, they are returning, IT IS MY GATHERING, says THE LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!

The Word of the Lord is coming to me concerning this next year. Last year was a year of “FINE”. The Word of the Lord was powerful, the anointing was easily received, and hearts were rejoicing and increasing easily. I sense a change tat will be taking place. In 2009 revelation was bountiful and flowed smoothly. This coming year seems to be of a different sort-much different.
In my spirit I have a sense that there will be a famine of the Word of the Lord, to many. It will be as it was in the 1980’s. Wanting the Holy Ghost, I sought for months, longing, desiring, praying, Lord how do I find the Holy Ghost? When I received, it was such a fulfillment that it seems I had no choice but to humble my heart to the point of total appreciation of what the Lord had given me. I counted myself to be blessed, thus being very appreciative of what the Lord had given me.
11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
This coming year will be a year of change. Those that want the Word will have to press in by a longing and a sincere desire to have the Word of the Lord. It will be a time of pressing, a time of digging, as one panning for gold; you must dig out the wealth of the Word. Last year revelation came easily and steadily…….perhaps causing many to take the Word for granted. The tide is now changing:
- Revelation will come
- To many that tread hard, as if by foot, revelation will come
- Producing an appreciation of what we receive
10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
12 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.
16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
17 And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you. KJV
In the bounty of things, often times comes a lack of appreciation. However to the REAL SEEKERS, it tells a different story. If you really want it and go after it you really become appreciative. Were we good stewards of the revelation that has been given, or were we wasteful and unappreciative?
Note: In the natural, we go to a restaurant and look at the menu and have a difficult time choosing something that we want to eat. What if we take away the menu for about one week, only allowing oatmeal at every meal? Perhaps, after that week, being given a full menu, it would not be as difficult to choose something to eat. Could it be that the same is true, spiritually speaking. The body of Christ has been given so much revelation of the Word of God, many have become complacent and unappreciative.
Many desire to know what we know and to have what we have. It is high time that we remember to be very thankful that the Holy Spirit has led us to the place where we are in Him. Without Him leading us, we would all be in tough shape.
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. KJV
WORD OF THE LORD:
Mourn and weep-children of mine, remind yourself how precious and wonderful is My Word, cherish and protect the Word that has been place in your heart by me, “Says the Lord of Hosts, put yourself in remembrance of where you once where and what you now have. There will be a great sifting this year. In the past, much was given, but to the abuse of many. There were those that rose up form obscurity, but instead of humility, yielding to the spirit of Absolam and Judas, stealing that which belongs to another. Have I not said in my Word that the servant is not greater than the Lord?
Pride and rebellion will must need be brought to their knee, I have no need of witches among my people. Witchcraft is not of me, this too will be sifted, but to those in which I have called, will rise up to be stronger than at the first.
Many have lived a life style not pleasing to Me, believing that what they have been doing will not prevail to them, but the sin will reap for them and their time of rejoicing will be no more. The peel will be removed, the real fruit exposed and much will be the ruin.
To the faithful and true, I will rise up. Up, up, up, and exalt on a high place, high so all that mocked you will see that you have been pleasing in my sight, approved by Me, says the Lord of Hosts. You can handle it, you will build and the Spirit of the rebuild will be greater than the other. It will be the Spirit of Eden, you in fact will be the Garden spot and will eat fresh fruit to avail.
Those that I plant in the New Garden will not be pulled up; they will remain and bare much fruit. It is the garden spot that I have planted them in. This is the plan and the Purpose of the Lord! My desire is that the remnant will seek me with a longing heart, thus the fruit will be accelerated, to the extent that it will require great strategy to keep up.
13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
The day of the Lord is upon those that have mocked my Word: As you have done, it shall be done unto you. Your reward shall return upon your own head. It is as it is! Many have eaten at my table and drank of my wine, but it will come to pass that it will be as though you were not. Turn, Turn, Turn, in my presence is fullness of joy. Holiness and righteousness is my name and in my name is abundance and blessing. Curse that which is evil and hold on to the right, be satisfied to the full. I shal be even as I have spoken.
15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast B, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
16 For as ye have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
17 But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.
18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it. KJV
Zech 14:20 – 21
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowl's before the altar.
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts. KJV
Jubilee is at the door of your heart. Be free, free from all that has held you back. In my Jubilee is where you will experience true joy. The cage door is open, but yet you remain, this too is a false sense of security. Come out and up, sour and be free, for in the cage you were given false security, dying unaware, ready to be taken captive and devoured. I ask why? Why are you so fearful to be free. Come to and enjoy! Enjoy the true freedom of Jubilee, flying souring and living free. Be free to fly, free to sour, live spirit free. Those of the ground will gaze at your freedom, gaze at your beauty and become desirous of your grace. Many will turn their hearts to me says the Lord. Your freedom proclaims, your freedom displays Jubilee. Your freedom speaks, your freedom proclaims. YOU ARE FREE TO RUN, YOU ARE FREE TO DANCE, and YOU ARE FREE TO LIVE FOR ME……… WILL YOU------------------LIVE FREE?
9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.
12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. KJV
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. KJV

And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. 11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
