Lion of the Tribe of Judah

This past Wednesday, I went with a group to Oak Grove Arkansas for a Camp Meeting at a church called Harvest Assembly.

This church was out in the middle of a hay field nestled in the hills of Arkansas. It was a beautiful new church with the most hospitable people that fed the visitors a meal before services started.

Inside the church, behind the platform was this beautiful banner made by one of the women in the church. I don't think I have ever seen one this beautiful.

When I walked in and saw it, I was reminded that our Savior Jesus Christ came first as a lamb, and is getting ready to return as the Lion from the tribe of Judah.

Here at our weekly Bible Study, we have been studying about the harvest and in particular about the harvest of souls in these last days. God puts little reminders in our everyday lives of what He is doing in these last days and what He is going to do. I realized this when I saw the sign out in the middle of nowhere that read 'Harvest Assembly'.

Matthew 9:37-38....Then He said unto His disciples, "The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray you therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.

My revelation from this trip is: I went in September, during the fall feasts, the season of harvest. The name of the church was Harvest Assembly, and we are to declare that the Lord is coming soon to all we can. We are to be the labourers to bring in the harvest of souls.

This banner declares that Jesus is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and every knee is going to bow to Him one day soon regardless of who is being prayed to at our capital this week-end.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful trip, Sandra. I love it when the Lord shows us things like He did with you on your trip. Carry it close with you. : ) Blessings in Christ.

  2. Great post and I agree, we do not fear those who assemble, because "those who are with us are more than those against us. We rejoice!"

  3. Beautiful banner and a wonderful revalation~

  4. Amen, Sister. That banner is awesome. I love it. I am forever amazed at the talents of people. Thanks for encouraging us--it is sorely needed in these days. Jesus is coming. Praise His name.

  5. AMEN!! AMEN!! Thank God our knees are bowing now and our voices are being raise to HIM in prayer & praise. It's so glorious now, just think what it will be like when!!

  6. I popped over from Penless Writer's blog, sounds like you had a great trip and enjoyed the Lord's blessings.

  7. Beautiful! I am so glad I am getting to see a few find the strength to take a stand. One of the ladies in the Bible study I host in my home every week, called and told me she felt like the Lord asked her to prepare to take over the Bible study next summer when we move back down south. She asked me if I'd mentor her so she could do this, and keep the group going.I almost cried, because I've felt it for months now and was waiting for confimation. And we both got it. The Lord is blessing our group! Praise the Lord. He is faithful! :)

  8. What a regal banner!
    I'm thankful for the reminders He shows us everyday.

  9. What a beautiful banner. Glad you took a picture for us to see it.
