For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower.  And bread to the eater,” (Is. 55:10)

A couple of days ago in vision I was shown snowshoes.  Immediately in another vision, I was shown a forest during nighttime; I could see the tree line and that the trees (tall) appeared very dark.  But the sun was shining bright above this darkness in a bright amber-colored sky.  Its rays could also be seen shining in between these tall dark trees.   

These visions were clearly understood.  Snowshoes are worn to prevent a walker from sinking in snow.  Significantly, snow falls over and covers everything that has become dormant or dead in winter.  Briefly said, it calls for Believers to keep walking higher up in the Spirit in order not to sink down into those worldly things that are dead; that are without life, that are lifeless!  

“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” (Gal. 5:16-18)

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Cor. 3:17)

That the snow was white is noteworthy because it biblically and symbolically represents the Lord’s Righteousness and the righteous acts of His redeemed saints.  (Mal. 4:2; Rev.19:8 KJV )  To keep within the scope of this message, the righteous acts of His saints were conveyed in the second vision.  These are they who have been and who are presently being equipped to go out into the darkness of the outside world with the mission of evangelizing the nations with the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Though they must venture out on lifeless ground in this thick darkness, they will walk above it.  They will be guided around obstacles and around tall and dark trees which are symbolic of worldly, political and religious affluence. They will walk above lifeless temptations and traps by the awesome Sun of Righteousness’ guiding Light, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Jn. 8:12)

Because of the tender mercy of our God, With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace.”  (Lk. 1:78-79)

In summary, this is a time when the Lord is calling faithful Laborers to put on their snowshoes. To live an exemplary life of righteousness in Christ and to help spread His Word and Plan of Redemption which declares that though one’s sins are crimson red, they will be made white and pure as heaven’s snow through His finished works.

Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool” (Isaiah 1:18) 

In brief, this vision is also a call to sow and to reap the Word so that both the sower and the reaper can benefit during this latter day harvest!

Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already “white” for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”  (Jn. 4:35-38)
