The days of the harvest are surely upon you. The days of calling in those who have wandered the streets for too long is now surely upon you. Those who have been sleeping will be awakened, and those who have been running away will quickly run out of space to run, and will run no more. (1)
I will pursue and overtake the rebellious. I will win their hearts with my love and they will surrender all they have to me. As I reveal myself to them, they will in turn, surrender themselves to me. Many of the rejects and outcasts of society will come to me, and I will pour my love into their hearts, and I will pour my spirit out upon them, and through them. They will walk in power and authority, for I will redeem and restore the call put upon them from the beginning. (2)
They will do many great exploits for my name, and they will be wonderfully effective. They will execute my commands with uncompromising zeal. They will obey without hesitation. They will answer the call and have no doubt nor double-mindedness within them. The glory of it all will be on display for all the world to see. As the eyes of scoffers look throughout the land, they will be perplexed for there will be no logical explanation as to why this has happened, apart from the move of my spirit in the hearts of those I have chosen to rescue and redeem. (3)
My affection for the rebellious is great. My love for those currently rebellious is great. Who can say what I am capable of reclaiming? Who can limit my reach, or understand my ways? For I desire that all would come near to me, especially those who have turned their backs on me and rejected me. Those who have heard the call on their life and rebelled against me, are still very precious to me, so I will pursue them and win them back. (4)
I desire to pull them all in, to take them, clean them up, restore, rehabilitate, and renew them. I will light my fire within their hearts, and it will be as if all the stolen years will be quickly redeemed.
So know, I am calling out to the rebellious. Come follow me. I will bless you. I will forgive you. I will comfort and feed you. I will govern you, and you will love me and you will love my ways. All the desires of your heart will be fulfilled and your days of joy will be beyond number.
