I am excited to release this word since harvest is one of the topics that the Lord has laid strongly on my heart. A lot of prophetic words have been released recently about harvest – which shows that harvest time is truly drawing near!

A while ago, I was watching an episode of the series called Chosen. (If you haven’t watched this, make an effort to do so – it is truly amazing!) Our six-year-old boy absolutely loves it and I was ‘obligated’ to watch it with him again, probably for the 4th time! While watching I suddenly saw a brief vision of angels going out and marking people on their foreheads. The words “Book of Remembrance” then dropped into my spirit. I instantly knew that these angelic hosts have been sent out to mark the ones that need to be gathered for harvest.

The Book of Remembrance
Earlier this year I had an interesting experience. I was sitting on my bed busy praying but I become quite tired and almost fell asleep. My mind was drifting off but My spirit kept praying over and over again, “remember us.” It became quite earnest as the Spirit kept praying these words through me that we should be remembered. All of a sudden, I was wide awake and I had no idea what it meant. All I knew what to do was to pray an earnest prayer that the Lord will not forget me, my husband, and our two boys. I felt to specifically call our names before the Lord so that we will be remembered.

I still didn’t understand what this meant so I stood up and went about my day. A while later I felt prompted to check my emails, something I must admit I don’t do so often. I received a newsletter from another ministry and when I opened it, great was my surprise when I saw the following scripture:

“Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.

“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

 ~ Malachi 3:16-17

God was so faithful to show me exactly what the Spirit was praying through me! I was in awe and realised the importance of praying that prayer. That we will be counted amongst those who fear the Lord and meditate on His name. There is a beautiful promise in this scripture, that God will spare those whose names are written in the book of remembrance.

Call the Harvest in!
There have been many seasons in my life that I have fervently prayed for loved ones and unbelievers to come into the Kingdom of God. At times we get weary to keep praying for them (as I also believe the Lord lead us into seasons praying for the lost) but after I saw the vision, I feel the Lord is stirring my spirit to call them in as part of the harvest! Now is the time to endure in steadfast prayer for the harvest to come in.

The names of the faithful remnant are written down in the book of remembrance. Because of this, God will also remember our prayers. He will not forget how we laboured in prayer for loved ones and other precious souls. Let us continue to call their names before the Lord.

Let us inquire of Him to also remember them, that they too, may be spared and become part of the Fathers’ jewels. I believe now is the time to endure as we fill the bowls of incense with our prayers (Rev 5:8). Although the battle is fierce over every lost soul, and we get tired and weary at times, let us persevere in prayer. The prayers that we sow into the Kingdom of God will surely bring forth a harvest!

“Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
He who continually goes forth weeping,
Bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.”

~ Psalm 126:5-6

A Great Door is Opening for the Gospel of the Kingdom to be Preached
There has been a season of harvesting the harvesters. I believe God has been preparing, and still is, harvesters, to gather the coming harvest. There has been a definite shift in the spirit in the month of September. One of the verses the Lord is highlighting in this hour is:

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force”

~ Matthew 11:12

“Kingdom Push!”
The words “kingdom push!” are being spoken by the Spirit presently. Now is the time to push forward even more and to advance the ground of victory that has already been attained! It is also like a woman in labour that has to: PUSH!!! The promise is about to be birthed!

Paul states in 1 Corinthians 16:9 that there was a great and effective door that opened to him, but there were also many adversaries. The enemy will not hold back in this hour for he knows he has little time. Let us stand against his wiles and plans, and take the Kingdom of God by force!

The Lord reminded me of a dream I had more than 10 years ago and I now strongly feel that we are entering into this season. In the dream, we were on a beach in Cape Town and suddenly a massive wave was coming towards us and we started running away. In the next scene of the dream, I was back in Bloemfontein (a city in South Africa far from the coast) and the streets were flooded with water, about ankle deep. I knew that the water came all the way from the wave that hit Cape Town.

I quickly went home to fetch my running shoes as I knew we have to go and preach the gospel in the streets.

The wave symbolizes the wave of revival that is coming to this nation, it will start in Cape Town and will spread across South Africa, Africa, and eventually the whole world. We need to put on the shoes of preparation of the gospel of peace (Eph 6:15). As this wave hits a door will open to preach the gospel of the kingdom and we need to be prepared for it.

Pay the Price.
The Lord showed me in another recent dream that running shoes are being tailor-made for those who order it. The shoes were quite expensive in the dream and I could not think that one would pay so much for a pair of shoes! The Lord revealed to me that these shoes come with a price tag – it is definitely not for those not willing to pay the price. It will surely cost us our comfort and the laying down of our lives.

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.”

~ 2 Chronicles 16:9

Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

~ John 4:35

Are you willing to be part of the harvesters?

I heard The LORD say on Yom Kippur, September 28, to raise up an Army to pray for what is coming in October.

Editor’s Note: Although “The Return” has ended, the spirit of the event has not. Watch the replay of the livestream at this link.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn gave a powerful prophetic message to trumpet “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance” today on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Making significant correlations between the ancient words of Scripture and present-day circumstances, the bestselling author used the words of the Old Testament prophets to highlight the grievous sins of our nation and the world and how we—individually and collectively—have turned away from Him.

Not only did the trumpets blow as “The Return” began at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26 before a gathered crowd of thousands, but shofars sounded at various points in Cahn’s message, accentuating the gravity of the biblical solemn assembly as described in Joel 2:15 (NKJV): “Blow the trumpet in Zion, consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly.”

Just as the people of ancient Israel drove God out and turned their hearts away from Him and toward other gods, Cahn said, we have likewise fallen. “We too have turned away from the God of our foundation, have estranged ourselves from Him,” he said. “We drove God out of our hearts, out of our government, out of our ways … out of our lives. And as we drove Him out, we opened up a vacuum into which came a flood of other gods: prosperity, comfort, sexual immorality and obsession. We too have become our own god.”

Cahn included in his message a clear call to repent for the sins of abortion. “To shed the blood of a human baby is to murder a life,” he said, noting that “our collective hands are covered with blood. Sixty million Americans have been murdered. But instead of weeping over that fact, we go further,” he said, pointing to the state of New York and the passing of what Cahn called the “bloody law” that removed abortion from the state’s penal code. Not ignoring the racial tensions that have shaken our nation, Cahn told the assembly that one day, every tribe, tongue and nation will gather at the throne of God. But he also asked a profound question: “How do you say, ‘Black lives matter’ and say nothing of all the Black lives killed here in this land before they could even take their first breath?”

Smashing a clay vessel on the platform and evoking the scene of the prophet Jeremiah doing the same in the Valley of Ben Hinnom (Jer. 19), Cahn told his listeners, “A house that wars against its own foundation cannot remain standing. That is why we have come on this ground and have gathered all over America and the world, because the hour is late, and the moment is critical. … We must seek His mercy as never before. We have come here because God has given His promise, yet still, ‘If my people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.'”

As Cahn continued his message, he presented the Lord’s clarion call to “Return, return,” kneeling on the stage at one point as he asked those who were able to join him in a physical and spiritual posture of repentance. Cahn said the voice of God is calling to America and to the nations of the world, “Return to Me, and I will not reject you, and I will be your healing.

“What lies ahead? Judgment and calamity or return and revival? It can’t be both,” Cahn added.

He included an appeal salvation for those who do not yet know Christ, telling them, “One heartbeat is the only thing that stands between you and eternity. … The time for salvation is now.”

Thank you to all who during “The Return” Livestream humbly and fervently prayed for the United States of America.

All nations around the world are included in this following prayer.  Or you can pray for an individual nation such as “the nation of _______.”

I had never really thought about praying for the nations, until I became a prayer leader.  But this is a prayer we need to pray everyday, particularly for nations that are oppressed.

Let the nations be awakened!

Let the earth hear the voice of The LORD!

Judge the nations in Your sight, Father, and put them to fear,

that they might know themselves to be but men.

Father, the whole creation groans and labors,

to be delivered from the bondage of corruption,

into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Send forth Your Spirit of Truth to bear witness of You,

and to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

Cause them to repent and to turn from their idols.

Shake the nations, so they will come to the Desire of All Nations (Jesus).

Father, cause Your people to rise up.

Gather Your mighty ones to prepare for war.

Bring the multitudes into the valley of decision.

Send Your ambassadors into all the nations.

Open to them a door for the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ,

that The Gospel of The Kingdom may be preached in all the world.

You have declared to Your People the power of Your Works,

in giving them the heritage of the nations.

Let every knee bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord!

Cause righteousness and praise to spring forth.

Let the earth be filled with the knowledge of the glory

of The LORD as the waters cover the sea.

Father, gather the nations together,

that they may worship Thee,

and exult Thee in all the earth.

Let all the nations be blessed through Your People,

and let the wealth of the heathen be gathered together

and be delivered into the hands of Your people for the work of The LORD.

Send forth Your salvation to the ends of the earth,

and make Your enemies to be Your footstool

I heard The LORD say, “It is time to turn the plow in prayer.”

“A Song of degrees of David.
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of The LORD.
Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together: whither the tribes go up, the tribes of The LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of The LORD.
For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because of the house of The LORD our God I will seek thy good,”   Psalm 122:1-9.

“Pilgrimage with Me for a while, take this journey very seriously for you shall see things you have never seen before.

You shall see lack and serious devastations all over the World.

Pandemics of every sort are about to break out and man will begin to search for answers.

Time out Children, it is time to put away your fears and come to a loving God for answers.

Seek the peace of Jerusalem.  My Children, there is prosperity in standing for Israel in this hour for she is about to come under such scrutiny as never before.

Attacks shall begin out from every corner against My Chosen.  It is near the time of the end and these things must be as I have spoken in My Word.

All those standing for Israel continue to stand but not only stand PRAY.  For I have given you the tongue of the learned to utter words out from darkness into the light.

America, in this hour I have called you to be the ‘Peace Makers’.”

“The LORD GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned,”   Isaiah 50:4.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God,”   Matthew 5:9.

“Seek the shelter of a loving God the end is near.  An army is coming toward Jerusalem — one that they are not prepared for or expecting.

Come into the Secret Place there I have prepared for your rest.  Your rest is Eternal and Everlasting.

You shall not fear nor have any need to fight in this battle.

Children, you shall not need to fight!  Eat these Words for they are life.  Weapons are formed but they shall not prosper.

The Holy One of Israel is with you My Children.  Cling to life by the very Words that I speak.”

“Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of The LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for The LORD will be with you,”   2 Chronicles 20:17.

“The attack on Jerusalem is untimely and out of order it will not go as planned.  I will cause ‘The Assassin’s Bullet’ to backfire in his own gun.”

This is the Word of The LORD let it be so.  Amen.

“Surely The LORD GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets,”   Amos 3:7.


LORD, we pray according to Your Word and will for Jerusalem.  We know that You have mandated certain rights and privileges for Israel and everything you have spoke shall come to pass.

LORD, we know that Your Name is in Jerusalem.  Your Word is extended from Israel throughout all the World and none of Your Words shall return unto You void, unfilled, or unaccomplished.

Thank You LORD, for Your NAME.  Thank You for Your WORD as it fills our ears.

Father, we accept the mantle of being ‘Peacemakers’ and intercede for Jerusalem in this hour.

Father, in The Name of Jesus, we come against enemy attacks, plans, and purposes of all nations to hurt or harm Jerusalem.

LORD, we expose and cancel all weapons of war being formed in carnality, ignorance, and rebellion against the name of The LORD Most High, in Jesus Name.

Father, in The Name of Jesus, we come against any enemy that brings opposition to Your Perfect Will concerning ‘The Chosen Nation of Your choosing’.

We call for hell’s fire to consume all thoughts and contrary movements in the Earth that will rise up to bring doom and destruction upon Jerusalem.

Oh, LORD we pray as a friend and kinship to the nation of Israel.  We pray for perfect peace over a people who are know by Your NAME.

Father, we pray strength, proper strategy, wisdom, and obedience of Israel’s armies.

We pray for the correct Commander in Chief and leaders to take charge and command over Jerusalem’s borders.

Father, we pray for inland security in Jerusalem; that every gap be filled with correct planning and preparation for war.

LORD, we pray against any spies posing as friends to Jerusalem to be exposed and dealt with accordingly by laws as set in place for such activity.

Father, we pray in The Name of Jesus that all thieves stealing from Jerusalem be put to shame and restore all money taken from its treasurer.

LORD, we pray safety over the children and elders, over the school systems, over drinking waters, over the seas that give passageway to travelers, and strangers.

Thank You LORD that no poison will hurt livestock and vegetation, and that Your breathe will supernaturally purify the air from any gases or chemical warfare.

Most of all we pray Your love be released to every hater and rebel of The Gospel of Jesus, The LORD of Lords.

Father we agree that Your perfect will shall be done in Jerusalem as it is written and has been spoken in the prayers of the ‘Peacemakers’ in America.  Amen.
