A word from Frank Amedia: We have just emerged from the beginnings of the Hebrew New Year. Rosh Hashanna is a time when there is consideration of what was in the past year, and hope and anticipation of what will be in the NEW. On the second night, an exotic fruit is served at dinner...something that is uncommon. This atypical fruit is celebrated as a statement of faith that Jehovah “our Provider” is promising new beginnings flowing with new blessings. Old things are passed away and all things are made new !
This year the Lord brought to my mind two words: “harvest” and “pomegranate”. As I sought the meaning of these key words, I was excited to receive this revelation:
Harvest: the process of gathering, or reaping, a ripe crop that has grown as a result of sowing seed and nurturing the growth process. I inquired: “Could it be the Lord is saying it is a time to sow what we have reaped?” Forgive me that my first thoughts were to resort to “common” prophetic understanding. No, it is much better than that! This is off of the chart!
Pomegranate: Certainly this is a most unique natural edible delight. A single pomegranate can produce as many as 600 arils, which are pods that consist of juicy, brilliant-red fruit surrounding tiny, crisp, edible seeds. Consider prophetically that the blood red covering of the pods shroud the amazingly sweet and delicious seeds of blessing.
I have made it a prophetic discipline to build upon the firm foundation of written word, with fresh Spirit-inspired-revelation.
So the word of Haggai: “... consider it: Is the seed still in the barn? As yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have not yielded fruit. But from this day I will bless you.’ ” (2:19)
And the word of Isaiah: “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat.Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. (Isaiah 55: 2(b) )
So this is the declaration for The NOW: “To my faithful, to you my overcomers; you who are called by my name, that walk in righteousness and do my will , that are committed to my Kingdom call at this time to prepare the way; I have touched your name in Our book of life and am imparting into your soul and into your Spirit, both in the present and into your future, and these are abundant gifts and blessings that cannot be purchased by your seed. Some are time released capsules that I have shrouded from the beginning of time, and some are created now ... they are stitched into your mantle and etched into your records, they have your name on them, a name that only I know until your time is fulfilled. The ransom is the Blood of the Lamb, and the testimony is your declaration. Declare my goodness and activate my promise in my name NOW, and as your will merges with mine ... ransom your inheritance, and receive an abundant harvest that is fully matured and ready to use ! This is the Word of the Lord.
