A harvest of souls
There is coming a harvest of souls like we have never seen before since time began.
That is a big statement, but Amos 3:7 says, “Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophet.”
Right across the globe, God is speaking to His prophets and saying that there is coming a harvest of souls and a worldwide awakening like we have never seen before. Some call it the Third Great Awakening.
Tracy Eckert in her book called God’s End-Time Temple published by Destiny Image wrote this. “God is going to take every move of God that we have ever heard of in history and even what we witnessed in Bible days and put it all together in one big Holy Ghost bomb and drop it on earth. The nations will reel with the power of God like they have never seen, and prime time news will cover it.”
What is a Spiritual Harvest of Souls?
A spiritual harvest of souls is the result of God’s work in the heart of man. Jesus spoke of a spiritual harvest waiting to be reaped.
As Jesus travelled, “he saw the crowds, [and] he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”
As we look around us, we see a world in chaos and the masses growing in irrational fear, we are observing ungodly and tyrannical leadership creating destructive laws that oppose the way God meant humanity to live by.
In Matthew 9:36–38, Here, Jesus referred to the many souls needing to be brought to repentance and faith as a harvest waiting to be realized.
Discipling the Harvest of Souls
My greatest concern is effectively discipling the harvest of souls. The majority of souls being saved will have no biblical worldview and our role as Christians is to make sure that we are equipping the saints and we retain the harvest.
Parable of the Sower
In Matthew 13:3, 9. He told many stories in the form of parables, such as this one: “Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.” Christian Discipleship, why is it important
Christian Discipleship, why is it important?
In an earlier article, I wrote about why Christian discipleship is important and the common mistake of a converts vs. discipleship mentality.
The Welsh revival is a good example of what may have been poor discipleship. In 1904 in a single year, a 100,000 people made a commitment to become followers of Jesus Christ and the transformation of society is breathtaking when you read accounts of that period of history in Wales.
Long term consequences
Although the revival spread far and wide and impacted many nations, a hundred years on the number of followers of Jesus Christ in wales is a fraction of what is was in those heady days.
Is that we want?
We must be equipping the saints with effective tools for the harvest and a new Christian Course that has been designed for brand new Christians who have no church background. It must be simple to use, easy to read and empowering almost anyone with management or proven leadership skills to disciple others.

Ps. David W Searle, myself and a dedicated group of supporters spent six years and collectively some 35,000 hours to create an intentional discipleship and small group leadership program that’s simple to use, easy to understand and takes a person from a pagan background to a Christian small group leader discipling other in 12 months or less.
