Amos 9:13 (KJV) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.

Some people need that scripture because they need that mortgage money or car payment or tuition or rent money right now.

This scripture gives us a wonderful revelation that you don’t have to wait on time.  We have been pretty much under a time driven economy or a time driven society where everything is on time.  You have to go to the eighth grade after you finish the seventh grade, or you have so many vacation days or I am going to be there tonight.  Everything is evolving around time.  The reason why is found in Genesis 1 where it talks about time.

Genesis 1:14-16 (KJV) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

So, signs, seasons, days and years.  So, if I talk about the greater light and the lesser light, the greater light is the sun and the lesser light is the moon.  The moon has no light of its own.  When you see the moon, you are a seeing a reflection of the sun light.  So, there is the sun and the moon, and they will show you the seasons, show you the years and the signs.

What I am telling you is, the sun starts in the East and travels over to the West.

There used to be something keeping track of time called a sun dial.  It was made in a way that when the sun came up and the position of the sun would cause a shadow of the dial to shine on a certain number.  So, as the sun re-positioned itself, you could tell what time it was.  The day and the night combined equals 24 hours.  That’s where your calendar is made and that’s where you keep time.  That’s what this is set up on.  They could pretty much tell you what time sundown is.  I tell you all of that, to tell you that time was given to you by God as a part of His creation.

Psalm 8:3 (KJV) When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

So, God made all of that and put them into place, ordained them.

Psalm 8:4-6 (KJV) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

Made him a little lower than the angels”, actually God.

God made time, so, man has dominion over time.  You were not meant to serve time.  Time was meant to serve you.

So, Joshua was fighting a battle in Joshua 10 and had not defeated his enemies and the sun was going down and Joshua spoke to the sun, “Sun, stand still,” and the moon in the valley of Ajalon.  He spoke to both the sun and the moon and the Bible said the sun stood still about a whole day until Joshua won the battle.

I am saying to you, look at the dominion that we have, the ability to tell time to fit into our plan instead of us being imprisoned by time and make us have to obey time.  It was never meant that way.  The only way it got that way is when mankind fell into sin.  Once he fell in the Garden, he became a prisoner of time.  But then God did something great, He gave him faith and faith is given to man to dominate time again.  So, the scripture tells us,

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …

I think that is what it did with Peter in Luke 5.  Jesus got into Peter’s boat and taught the people.  When Jesus finished, he told Peter to let down his nets for a draught.  Peter told Jesus he had toiled all night and had caught nothing but at thy word I will let down the net.  When he did, he enclosed a great net of fish and the net break and Peter beckoned to his partners to come and help him and they came and filled both ships so that they began to sink.  When Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus feet, saying, “Depart from me.  I am a sinful man, oh Lord.” For he was astonished and all that were with him at the draught of fishes which they had taken.

In that area, you weren’t supposed to fish and put out nets to catch fish in the daytime because the fish would see the net and swim off.  So, it wasn’t Peter’s time, but it doesn’t make any difference; because faith overrides the law of time.  So, Peter pulls in all these fish.  I believe Peter caught a year’s catch in an hour.  Now let’s put that with a verse.

Amos 9:13 (MSG) “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” GOD’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …”

What people have done is they have sown seed, but they have not expected a right now return.  They never released it in faith.  They just dropped their seed in the offering bucket.

I am telling you, if you have a need, you have a right to sow a seed for that need and that need be met.  I don’t care if it is tonight or six months from now you can direct that harvest and when it will come.

I am telling you, use your authority.  You have a need, you sow a seed and expect God to manifest this verse, “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, …” because He put it in the Bible and if He didn’t want you to have it, He should have kept it out of the Bible because now it is in there and it’s time for you to get your harvest.  The wait is over.  Now give God praise for your right now harvest.
