The Threshing Floor
[On April 23rd, I participated in the Prophetic Dateline Event hosted by Mike and Cindy Jacobs. Other prophetic friends were on, as well, and I wanted to give you a sense over the next few days of what the Lord is saying through these voices.]
RICK RIDINGS, SUCCAT HALLEL, JERUSALEM
“In October 2016, the Lord gave me a series of visions that I feel describe the season that began last summer. In those visions, I saw the Lord take a threshing basket filled with wheat. He threw the wheat in the air and the chaff was blown away while the good wheat used to make bread fell back into the basket.
“The Lord began in Jerusalem. He put the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in the basket and threw them in the basket. Immediately after that, there was an actual situation at the Temple Mount that could have exploded into a full-scale middle eastern war. The Lord showed me that it was not His time to allow that. He showed me that just as it was about to go out of control, He took control (throwing it up in the air), the chaff blew away and everything fell back into the basket and calmed down.
“Then, He threw the basket up two more times. This indicated there would be a series of shakings. He said that the shakings would go out to the nations and they would be severely shaken. He told me, ‘Each time things look like they will go out of control, those with eyes to see will see that I am in control and I will bring that shaking down. It will end up looking different than what was expected.’
“Out of the shakings will come water in the driest places, polarization of light and darkness, and separation of truth and lies in the nations. The final thing He showed me is that there will be a great harvest coming from this season of shakings. This harvest will be a global harvest.”
“Behold, I make of you a threshing sledge, new, sharp, and having teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them, and you shall make the hills like chaff; you shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the Lord; in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.” (Isaiah 41:15-16; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Read Joel 2:12-32. Intercede as the Lord leads while you are reading through it.
- Seasons of shaking and threshing are accompanied with repentance. Make sure your heart and life are right with the Lord.
- Invite the threshing process of the Lord into your life and into this nation. Don’t be afraid. All that is His will remain.
- Rejoice that the shaking season will end with great increase!
- Rejoice that harvest is right at hand!
A prayer you can pray:
Lord You say, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me all your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, mourning. Let your remorse tear at your hearts and not your garments.” So, Lord, we repent. Come and examine us. Examine us as individuals, as Your Church, and as a nation. Forgive us, so we may return to You, for You are gracious and merciful. You are full of kindness. You don’t really want to punish us, but we trust You to separate sin from righteousness, light from darkness, and truth from lies.
Will You decide to bless us, instead of letting us remain under this terrible curse? Will you bless us, so we can give back to You our lives and the fruit of our hands? We will pray, “Spare your people, O our God; don’t let the heathen rule us, for we belong to you. Don’t let us be disgraced by the taunts of the heathen who say, ‘Where is this God of theirs? How weak and helpless he must be!’” Let them say instead, “The Lord has done a mighty miracle for you.’”
Therefore, we will not be afraid, for You are doing amazing things in the earth. We will rejoice in the Lord our God! For You send forgiveness. The threshing floors will pile high again with wheat, and the presses overflow with olive oil and wine.
We will praise You, Lord, who does these miracles for us. We will know that You alone are God. You will pour out Your Spirit upon all of us! Our sons and daughters will prophesy; our old men will dream dreams, and our young men see visions. Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved! (Excerpted from Joel 2, TLB.)
The Lord is threshing the earth, dividing and cleansing, and salvation has come!
