A STUMP IN THE FIELD – A Word by Bill Yount


I saw the Body of Christ plowing with great difficulty in the field of labor. Finally our plow seemed to hit a stump in the field and we couldn’t go any further. With all our efforts and praying this stump remained unmovable and steadfast. Our hearts were broken for we knew God had placed us here to plow in this great field of Harvest.
But this ‘stump’ in the field was stopping us.
I then heard the Lord say, “You have hit treasure! This is no ordinary stump of an ordinary tree. You have just hit the base of the tree of Calvary. It’s the cross growing in your field! You must not, I repeat, you must not remove it. It is growing in your field to remove you out of the way from hindering My Harvest. Your will have to embrace this cross and die before I can release resurrection power into your field of labor.
As we beheld the cross growing in our field, we began to experience a “Severe Pruning” in our spiritual giftings, especially in the area of the prophetic. He was cutting and pruning us back to bring forth a more sure word. He was adjusting our gifts, callings, and ministries to bring forth the fruit of “Servant Hood” in our lives. I heard the Lord say, “Your giftings are showing more than your fruit. You are embarrassing Me!”
I then remembered right before the cross– they beat on Jesus and cried out to Him – Prophesy to us!. But He didn’t…. there are times you don’t prophesy – you just show others how to die – to self, giftings and plans.
As we embrace the cross, death and surrender will bring forth fruit that will remain to bring in the Harvest. In fact fruit is the Harvest – it will bring it in. In Italy they have discovered that grape vines produce more fruit when grown on cross like poles. They get more sunshine and fresh air.
Many are spiritually “stumped” in their lives, families and ministries this hour. They feel they are at a cross-roads and are looking for a fresh word from heaven to tell them what to do. Many are asking, “Lord, should I go this way or that way?”
But I sense the Lord saying, “Go this way =|= spread out your arms.
You are NOT at a cross-roads, you ARE at the cross!”
Have you been betrayed? You are nearing your cross.
Have you been rejected? You are getting closer.
Don’t run now. If you miss your crucifixion – you will miss your resurrection!

He faithfully served in Prison Ministry at Mount Hope Inc. for 23 years and now travels full-time, ministering in churches and Aglow circles. He is currently an Advisor at Large for Aglow International. Bill’s calling is to encourage the Body of Christ to move forward into God’s Destiny as they are sent into the Harvest field. “Humility and Humor” characterize his ministry as he brings forth a fresh word that is “in season” proclaiming the word of the Lord! The shofar or ram’s horn is often used in his meetings breaking the powers of darkness over regions, churches and house-holds. The shofar represents God’s breath blowing into the nostrils of His people, reviving them and awakening the lost. He travels across the U.S. and at times abroad. Many of God’s messages he ministers prophetically come out of every day life with his family and friends.


A Word by Dana Jarvis

I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.

Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!

You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.

However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”

I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel.

The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
