"Joining Hands For The Harvest" The following is a dream and the interpretation given to me, November 2004. May God's name be praised, Marvin Swanson Some Background: I was raised on a large mixed farming operation in Central Alberta where my father along with three of his brothers farmed approximately 2600 acres of fertile land. We cultivated mainly cereal crops, along with grasses and legumes of different varieties, which were raised as cash crops, as well as feed for our cattle. Along with this, my father also operated a dairy with approx. 35 big Holstein cows milking twice a day. Needless to say we were busy all the time. Depending on how you want to look at it, I had the fortune, or maybe it was misfortune, to be the only son of the four families involved, other than another cousin who was 10 years younger and lived in town. You guessed it! I was the family slave. I'm not sorry for this, but rather: I find God speaks to me in agricultural terms often, because of my earlier training. My job really hasn't changed that much. I'm just working on a bigger farm (the Kingdom of God) now with a new boss (Father God), but the principles are much the same. It paid to obey my earthly father and work where he told me, in much the same way it pays to obey Father God and work where He tells us. "Obedience is better than sacrifice." (1 Samuel 15:22). We had many different fields with many different kinds of crops. There were countless different jobs and chores that needed to be done. Some were on a regular daily basis, like milking the cows, etc., and some were seasonal, like seed time and harvest. Whatever the job, there was a proper time and place for each. Sometimes important work, like fencing, yard work, cleaning the feed lot, or cow barn, maintenance around the buildings, or painting, etc. had to give precedence to more pressing work like "Joining Hands And Resources For The Harvest!" This is where everybody either put other pressing matters on hold, or willingly dropped what they were doing and joined together to gather in the fruit of the spring and summer's hard labor. Everybody worked together towards the common goal, and everybody benefited from one others co-operation. It is with this thought in mind I share with you the dream. I was traveling along a high straight road, at a good speed, when suddenly, I came to a very steep descent or decline. The vehicle I was driving in was a 1940's or 1950's model farm truck, like we would have used for hauling grain a long time ago. Because of the age of the vehicle, I realized the brakes were not up to par and would not be able to hold the truck back from a great crash at the bottom. Then, I noticed someone else with me in the cab, who seemed to take over the wheel. He was a Master Driver and seemed to have everything under control. However, I knew if he did not shift down into 3rd gear very quickly, it would be too late and we would surely crash. At the very last second he shifted down and we began our swift descent. Even then, I had feelings of "we're not going to make it ... it's all over" It was very steep and very dark. - exert from book The rest of the prophetic dream with its interpretation is inside. It is powerful and relevant for anyone, anywhere who wants to serve God and grow in their ministry gifting and calling. Enjoy, and God bless you, Marvin.
