I saw Amish buggies being pulled by a white horse prancing onto the highway of glory!
"And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests unto our God; and we shall reign on the earth" (Rev. 5:9-10).
"I saw heaven opened. And there was a white horse. He who sat on it is called Faithful and True" (Rev. 19:11a).
A White Horse in Amish Country
I was ministering in a small country church where there were Amish people living in the area. While I was speaking, I sensed that God was doing something regional, bringing His people together corporately for something awesome. To be honest, at the time, I was not thinking about the Amish people, but God was. Later the Lord showed me that as I blew the shofar during worship, His breath was blowing throughout the region, releasing white horses into Amish country.
Amish buggies will no longer take the back-country roads for travel, but will now take their place on the "spiritual" beltways and on the highway to glory!
On the way to this small church in Pennsylvania, a friend who knew the area cautioned me to drive carefully, because Amish buggies drawn by horses would be using the same road. (Some Amish people have been injured and even killed by cars running into them.) Because of the slow speed of the buggies, they are not easily seen as you drive over the top of a hill or as they are slowly coming onto the road from an intersection. As we arrived at the church, a buggy with an Amish family was passing by the church. The clicking sound of trotting horse hoofs blessed us as we entered the church doors.
I sense the Lord cautioning us who believe that He is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh to "walk softly" in Amish country. Many Amish people will now begin to come onto the same spiritual road we are on. I sense the Lord saying, "They may appear slow and behind times in certain areas, but to Me, they are coming onto My Highway right on time!"
A Bountiful Harvest—Here Come the Amish!
I am seeing angels descending upon the fields and barns of the Amish people. Barns are the place where the Amish often gather to worship. I see their barns overflowing with the fatness of a great harvest of souls, full of the Holy Spirit coming into the kingdom of God. Their barns shall be called "glory barns," with 24/7 worship breaking out.
A white horse carrying Jesus was being yoked up with Amish horse teams to work together in their fields, drawing the Amish into a spiritual rest.
"Therefore a rest remains for the people of God. For whoever enters His rest will also cease from his own works, as God did from His. Let us labor therefore to enter that rest, lest anyone fall by the same pattern of unbelief." (Heb. 4:9-11).
Jesus was in their fields of labor working right among these precious Amish people, to bring them into a harvest of spiritual resting in Him, who had finished the redemptive work before the foundation of the world. Because of their tradition of hard work ethics, the Lord will use many of the Amish people as they keep their hand to the spiritual plow and enter into His rest and other fields of His labor.
Amish women were mending torn pieces of cloth together from various denominations, races and nationalities, knitting prophetic quilts of unity.
Many people looking from underneath these unfinished prophetic quilts couldn't make any sense out of the design or see any beauty in it. But the Lord was proclaiming, "I see the quilt from above as though it's already finished, and it's awesome to Me. I make all things beautiful in My time."
Next time you pass through Amish country, you may want to take a buggy ride—on the King's carriage.
