What society has thrown away, I am causing to come in to Me. Some say "Take the trash out!" but I say, "Bring the trash in!" For I can repurpose anyone. Surely I will take the broken and discarded and make a new creation out of them. For truly beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, and I will turn their ashes into something beautiful. What once created a stench will now release a sweet fragrance before My throne. I will make these throwaways My trophies of grace. I will invite them to dine with Me at the head of the table, for I am not ashamed to call them My own.
Therefore, get ready, for where the enemy has come in like a flood, I am raising up My standard of victory against him! Get ready, for My flood waters are coming, bringing the throwaways of society into My house. They are My peculiar treasures that I will use mightily in this end time harvest! Pray now for laborers to bring in the harvest, for surely the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Who then will be the dumpster divers, not afraid to get their hands dirty, to rescue My lost children? Will it be you?
Isaiah 61:2-3 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 I am sent to announce a new season of Yahweh’s grace and a time of God’s recompense on his enemies, to comfort all who are in sorrow, 3 to strengthen those crushed by despair who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful bouquet in the place of ashes, the oil of bliss instead of tears, and the mantle of joyous praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. Because of this, they will be known as Mighty Oaks of Righteousness, planted by Yahweh as a living display of his glory.
Isaiah 59:19 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
So [as the result of the Messiah’s intervention] they shall [reverently] fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives].
Matthew 9:35-38 The Passion Translation (TPT)
35 Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever he went he demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness.
36 When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. 37 He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. 38 As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain!”
1 Peter 2:9 The Passion Translation (TPT)
But you are God’s chosen treasure—priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world.
