“Jezreel means God will sow.”
Lord Jesus, please visit us and pour righteousness upon the people.
“Jezreel is God’s promise to the earth that He will have a faithful Bride, and that when He finds her, He will sow Her in the earth.”
“Jezreel is God’s promise to humanity that His Holy Name shall no longer be blasphemed among the nations because of the unfaithfulness of His people…because of the unfaithfulness of an adulterous Bride.”
“Jezreel is God’s promise to the world that when His Bride is cleansed and made holy he will sow her in the earth. That she might reproduce her Holy Seed in the earth. God does not sow dead seed. He sows a living seed. If God sows a living and righteous seed in the earth, he does so that he might reap a harvest after the kind of the seed that he planted.”
Hosea 2:19- I will betroth you to me forever; yes, I will betroth you to me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving-kindness and in mercies. I will even betroth you to me in faithfulness: and you shall know the LORD. And it shall come to pass in that day, “I will hear, says the Lord, I WILL HEAR THE HEAVENS, AND THEY SHALL HEAR THE EARTH; And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil, and they shall hear Jezreel. And I will sow her for Myself in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; then I will say to them which were not my people, You are my people; and they shall say, “You are my God.”
HEAVEN SPEAKS AND EARTH RESPONDS. I believe as we are watching the four winds of God move across the earth, the Heavens are astir as the earth cries out for righteousness and judgment.
And the Heavens hear… and they respond to the cries of the earth. The apostle Paul tells us that the whole creation is groaning and travailing in birth-pangs for deliverance. And the hearers are alerted to the cries of the earth, and God is preparing sons, in the same school of obedience in which He prepared His only begotten Son, to be revealed in the day that he has appointed for the earth’s deliverance.
(Vs.21) I will hear says the Lord. I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth, and the earth shall hear the corn and the wine, and the oil and they shall hear Jezreel.
God has made a provision in the earth to bring forth true fruitfulness. In harvest time, we are looking for fruit. Not just any kind of fruit, but top-quality fruit. Now God is the Husbandman. and He is looking for top-quality. He calls is the precious fruit of the earth. He is waiting for that. He has waited for many centuries. We would think He would have reaped the harvest long ago, when revival fires were sweeping over many places in the earth. But God has continued to wait. It must be the harvest for which he is waiting is top-quality…the very best that he, the Great Gardener is able to bring forth.
This all starts with the betrothal of the Bride to the Bridegroom. I believe that there has been a betrothal and we are beginning to see this “quality fruit” come forth in the earth. This betrothal sat into motion an intricate series of movements in which Heaven and Earth respond one to the other, and react and interact the one with the other…and another. and still another.
God says, “I will betroth thee unto me in” righteousness, and judgment.” For he must cleanse and purify His people. This is the first stage of the betrothal. Then “loving-kindness and mercies” follow that.
This produces “faithfulness” on the part of the Bride. God is always faithful, but it is going to take an administration of righteousness and judgment by God to make His Bride faithful.
And then she comes to know the Lord. Before that she knows the Lord as Savior, Healer, Blesser, Giver, etc. But she falls short of God’s desire. Do you want to know the Lord because of what he does to and for us or because of who he is, the Great and the Omnipotent and the Sovereign Lord of the Universe – and of your own heart.
All this starts in the heavens. The earth is apprehended, then a chain reaction of life is set in motion
“I will hear the heavens and they shall hear the earth.” Heaven wants to pour forth of her blessings upon a needy world and it seems to be her cry: “Give me rain for the earth, Oh Lord…the earth is famishing…give me rain for the earth.”
“And they (heavens) shall hear the earth.” The earth finally realizes her plight. God said He was going to send a famine on the earth, not of bread or water, but of hearing the words of the Lord (Amos 8:11). The famine is upon us. There is no respect for the Word of God or the Name of God among worldly people and even among those who call themselves Christians. “Come Oh Heavens and pour righteousness upon your people! We are perishing for lack of the living bread!” Ah ha, but the Babylonian church system is not crying for God to pour out righteousness upon the people. They are crying for a Harvest that will bring in more people, popularity, fame, and money to finance their ministries.
But our God waits. He is looking for top-quality, “the precious fruit” (Jas. 5:7).
When the cries of the earth are for righteousness, then Heaven hears and responds to the cries of the earth. Earth is able to respond to the corn and the wine and the oil. Their granaries are empty. The wine press is empty. The oil vats are empty. And they cry to the earth, “Fill us with wine. Fill us with corn.”
There is new growth in the barren and desolate earth. There is corn of the living bread which strengthens man’s heart. There is the wine that makes glad the heart of man. There is the oil of His anointing, that causes the face of man to shine with His Glory. The shining forth of the anointing from the face of God’s people will bring about His mighty workings in the earth.
Jezreel begins to cry out…
Let truth be planted in the earth.
Let truth be planted in the earth.
The purpose of the Holy Spirit coming to abide in His people is to “guide us into all truth (Jn. 16:13). He is to lead us into the spiritual realms where we are seated with Christ in the heavenlies. If we are faithful to be led of the Lord into living truth, then we will be hidden with Christ in God. He will lead us into the heart of God and into perfect love.
Then the Bride cries out to the heavens –
“Sow me in the earth…sow me in the earth.” And God hears the cries of His beloved and sows her in the earth that she might reproduce her kind in the earth.
The Word says, “I will sow her into the earth”. God’s Holy Bride longs to be fruitful in the earth. She is not selfishly looking forward to an easy way of escape. She longs to be down in the earth so she might bring forth fruit in the lives of others.
She is sown into the polluted earth which is good soil for the Good Seed of the Living Truth. Broken lives are touched with the gentleness, the mercies, and the love of the Holy Bride of Christ.
We are in the midst of the moving of the Four Winds of Heaven (Jer. 49:36, Zec. 2:6). Masses of people are being spread abroad across continents. It is not enough that earth hears our teaching, preaching, and prophesying. If Heaven is not stirred to action, there will be no chain reaction in the earth.
“Come from the four winds O Breath” (Ez. 37:9) . No matter how powerful our prophecy might be, it must penetrate the heavens before the kingdoms of men are torn down and they kingdom of heaven is established in their place.
Earth fears no words from mere preachers, nor from self-styled prophets. Earth fears when an Ezekiel speaks and prays. Kings feared when Elijah spoke—and prayed. Felix trembled when Paul spoke. When God’s glory rested on the Church in Jerusalem, people feared to be around unless their hearts were repentant before God.
We know that God’s purpose in pouring out His judgments on the earth is that the inhabitants of the earth may learn righteousness. They delight in mercy. The earth is shaken to its foundations because of the voice that thunders forth from the throne through humble, insignificant, broken, but approved, vessels of mercy.
