Today I read where 3 people spoke of having a "soft" heart.  The last was when Bob Jone's Shepherd's Rod for 2012 arrived in the mail.  In there he says that the fruit of the Spirit that He is focusing on for this year is the banana.  Quote Bob Jones:  "The Lord told me that the banana represents the fruit of kindness or gentleness.  Like the banana, those that display kindness are softhearted, sweet and full of potassium (compassion).  When troubled times come, men become teachable.  Gentle people build other's hearts through troubled times.  Kindness builds God's heart in you and always shows mercy."  (End quote) 


When I think of a soft heart I am reminded of the following prophetic scripture:


Hos 10:12 NKJV

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.


We have been in a lonnnnnnng season of the Lord breaking up our fallow ground through many tears and this has softened our ground and prepared us to receive the rain of His Presence, gifts and callings for the end days.



Beloveds, the fruits of what you have nurtured in your life were brought to the surface and exposed.  I separated the tares and harvested the good fruit.  What you have gone through is a cleansing, harvesting, and finally plowing through many tears and prayer.


Even though you see little color in your life right now, I see a beautiful and rich ground that has been plowed, tilled and leveled smooth for next year’s plantings.  New gifts, new fruit, new joys are coming.  See it with My eyes, and do not let go of hope.  Every season has its purpose.  Rest beloved ones.  REST.  Spring is around the corner and fresh plantings will appear with new hope for a fresh new crop yet to come.


Jer 4:3-4 NKJV

Break up your fallow ground, and do not sow among thorns.  Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, And take away the foreskins of your hearts.


Eccl 3:2 NKJV

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.... A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted...




NEW DAY  7/23/91

Shout it from the house tops.  Make merry and be glad!  A new beginning do I declare.  For your shame, you shall receive everlasting joy upon your heads.  Rejoice, for I come to refresh.


Listen for the rain.  Long I have waited to pour Myself out upon you.  First the fire, then the rain.  I held back until the fire did its cleansing work.  As Elisha declared make this valley full of ditches in preparation for the coming water, so I declared righteousness and mercy must be sown through the breaking of fallow ground.  Rejoice, oh meek ones!  The preparation is complete.  Your hearts are soft and I turn My face toward you.


I earnestly seek you.  My heart is drawn toward you and I will draw your heart toward Me.  This is not a work you can do in yourself.  I alone do the drawing.  Only be tender and soft to respond when I call.  I shall woo your heart and place My longings within you.  I will create in you a hunger for My Words.  I have a hunger to hear you.


A new season is knocking on your door.  Resurrection!  Awake, oh sleeping ones.  Open your ears and hear, open your eyes and see, open your heart and receive the resurrection of My Spirit within you.  Awake, arise.  Stand to your feet!  Rejoice, for it is the dawning of a new day.


Mercy, mercy.  Declare mercy to My people.  The burning of the fire, the sifting of the plow, the dryness of famine, all shall be quenched as I pour Myself upon you.  Your ground shall be settled and planted with the rains.  I will confirm your way with the nearness of My Presence.  Rejoice My fair ones, for the drawing has begun.


“Behold I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth...”  (Isaiah 43:19)


READER CONFIRMATIONS:  I have just read your word about "soft hearts" and bananas on FB. I was laughing... In the summer my daughter had a visitation from the Lord. Jesus came into the living room and she couldn't wait to share it with me. When I asked her what exactly happened, what she saw or felt she said: "Mom, Jesus is a banana!" That sounded very weird first. But you have to know her... she is very creative, an artist . ... her senses are very sharp. She said that she couldn't see Him for the glory was so strong and bright. But she felt Him and He was soft and gentle and sweet and full of peace. She also heard His audible voice. He assured her that everything was going to be ok in her life in this senior year and He would guide her in the process. He also told her to tell me that I worry too much... :-(((


So when she put yellow (glory), soft, sweet together she came up with the banana picture.


A few days later, when I was still thinking about her visitation I was listening to a Keith Green CD. The last song was over and it was quiet. I didn't turn off the player and maybe two-three minutes after the last song he began to talk. He asked his audience if they knew who a real Christian was. Then he started to list things that a real Christian is NOT. Finally he said: "A Christian is someone who is BANANAS for Jesus!" I couldn't stop laughing!
