God’s Holy Spirit said to me “Christmas is coming early this year for those who believe and prepare. The greater is coming to those who receive, by faith, in their spirits and in their hearts, and are obedient to My Word. The sower shall overtake the reaper.”

God’s Holy Spirit said to me “Christmas is coming early this year for those who believe and prepare. The greater is coming to those who receive, by faith, in their spirits and in their hearts, and are obedient to My Word. The sower shall overtake the reaper.”

In obedience to this Living Word, I went out today and purchased a new tree for this new season. I also purchased 101 “shatterproof” ornaments, and a shiny new silver star to adorn the top of my 6.5 foot, white-frosted crystal pine.

I was then taken to Amos 9:13, which testifies: “‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the LORD, ‘When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.’”

I was literally brought to my knees, as the Spirit said “This is what I will do for those who believe by faith and prepare. I will cause Christmas to overtake Thanksgiving. The reaper (Thanksgiving) will be overtaken by the sower (Christmas). For those who believe, by faith, and prepare, I will cause them to simultaneously harvest and sow.”

As I began the laborious task of preparing and pinning the 101 ornaments one by one, I started to compromise with myself deciding to hang only about 75, as I had a long day. It was then that Holy Spirit took me to 2 Kings 13:15-19: “And Elisha said to him, ‘Take a bow and some arrows.’ So he took himself a bow and some arrows. Then he said to the king of Israel, ‘Put your hand on the bow.’ So he put his hand on it, and Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands. And he said, ‘Open the east window’; and he opened it. Then Elisha said, ‘Shoot’; and he shot. And he said, ‘The arrow of the LORD’s deliverance and the arrow of deliverance from Syria; for you must strike the Syrians at Aphek till you have destroyed them.’ Then he said, ‘Take the arrows’; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, ‘Strike the ground’; so he struck three times, and stopped. And the man of God was angry with him, and said, ‘You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck Syria till you had destroyed it! But now you will strike Syria only three times.’”

The Spirit was saying “the degree of the overtaking will be determined by your willingness to believe me for the unachievable. The 100 ornaments represent the hundred-fold return. You will have your return according to your faith, and your demonstration of that faith.” And He took me further along, to Matthew 13: “On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: ‘Behold, a sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’”

I said, “But Holy Spirit, there are 101 shatterproof ornaments.” And as I picked up the next, it shattered in my hand. This “shatterproof” ornament shattered. And The Spirit of the Living God said to me, there are 100 for you to hang on your tree. The one represents the One, Who could not be shattered, except only by allowing Himself to be shattered, so the 100 could be released. Jesus Christ is the Perfect Seed sown, so that the harvest could come to all who call on His Name and believe.”

I was then led by the Spirit to this even higher place:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain (John 12:24). Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:5-11).

For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).”

Merry Early Christmas, Family. Be excited, and be encouraged! For Jesus is truly the Reason for the Season, and He is coming early this year to those who dare to believe for the impossible.

God bless you.

With warmest regards,
And in service of the Most High King,

Matthew
