Holy Ghost

Designed for Harvest

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter in law, with her, which returned out of the country of Moab: and they came to Bethlehem in the beginning of barley harvest." - Ruth 1:22 (NKJV)

Bible Passage: Leviticus 26:10, Genesis 8:22, Exodus 23:16. Deuteronomy 8:8, Matthew 25, Psalms 65:3-6,  2 Corinthians 9:6, John 12:24, 

Everything you see is a harvest. Every creation began as a seed, and every seed has the capacity to produce a harvest. 

A harvest is a complete product. There are four harvests in a calendar year and the last one (for the last three months) is the harvest of olives. Olives produce oil, and in the spiritual realm, that indicates an anointing that comes from the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost plays a key role in the Pentecost (which stands for harvest).

Everything you see is a result of a seed you have sown. If you want to see something different, sow a different seed. If you want to change the direction of your life, you must change the seed you sow, and you should sow with an expectation.

Nothing is created to remain the way it is. If something remains static, then there is a problem with the seed. Whatever you set in motion is a seed and it will germinate.

Sow what you want to see. If you want to be rich, give. If you want to be poor, grasp. If you want to be in abundance, scatter. If you want to be needy, hoard. If you eat your seed, you eat your harvest. The seed you sow today is the harvest you reap tomorrow. 

Until you sow your seed, do not expect an harvest. Until something leaves earth, nothing leaves heaven. 

Revival Fire

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." Acts 2:1-4 (NKJV)

Bible Passages: Romans 12:11, Act 4:34, Philippians 3:10, Exodus 33, Deuteronomy 9:3, Matt 17, Joel 2.

The first revival started on the day of Pentecost; which means harvest in Hebrew. On that day, the disciples and believers were in one accord and the Holy Ghost came down. 

Revival refers to the renewal of that which is dead. It is synonymous with fire as it is contagious and intangible. Genuine revival is not materialistic; it occurs when your soul is on fire for God, you begin to speak in tongues, miracles happen, the church experiences growth and fruitfulness. 

 Revival connects man back to God. It rejuvenates our spirits and we cry out to God to heal our cities, societies and nations; but it comes with a price - one many aren't willing to pay.   

Poor leadership and lack of fervent prayers are killing the revival fire. We must be dissatisfied with the status quo, we must yearn for God and to be intimate with him. We must spark that fire and let it spread. The revival of fire represents spiritual intensity, so we must let it burn. 

God doesn't need a congregation or crowd to start a revival, He just needs one man. A man who isn't comfortable with the word of God being sidelined. A man who is ready to make a statement for God. A man who is ready to be a stove for the Holy Ghost fire.

The fire of revival keeps you wanting more of God and his word. Will you be that person who will spark the revival fire in your family, neighborhood, city and nation?
