Working the Harvest

God Invented Seasons:
“As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest…” Gen. 8:22
We will look at two of their major feast days during the this season:
1) The Feast of Firstfruits
2) The Feast of Harvest
This took place three days after Passover.
On this day they brought the first sheave of grain to the Temple. The priest held it up and waved before the Lord.
“… you must bring the first bundle of grain from your harvest to the priest…
he will present the bundle on the day after the Sabbath…
offer a male lamb, one year old, that has nothing wrong with it…” Lev. 23:10-12
Jesus died on Passover Day. He was perfect!
Like a seed, He was planted in the earth.
Three days later (during the Feast of Firstfruits), Jesus came out of he ground. The first fruit to ripen in God’s harvest.
“… Christ … raised from the dead, the firstfruits …
in Christ, all will be made alive…
Christ, the firstfruits;
afterward, at His coming, those who belong to Christ.” 1 Cor. 15:20-23.
Believers are the rest of the Harvest.
This takes place 50 days after the “Firstfruits”.
Also called “Pentecost”.
On this very day (Pentecost), the Holy Spirit fell upon the disciples & 3,000 souls were saved. This was the harvest God longed for—the birth of the Church.
The Church was born on the very day these two loaves were being waved before the Lord.
One representing the Jews & the other representing the Gentiles.
God Invented Seasons:
“As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest…” Gen. 8:22
The Sowing Season (Seed Time)
“A man went out to sow some seed. Some … fell on the road… Some… fell on good ground… The seed grew and the plants gave more seed.” Matt. 13:3-8
The Two Rainy Seasons
Two Seasons of Rain
“I will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain…” Deut. 11:14
“…He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” Hosea 6:3
The Two Rainy Seasons
…The seed begins to grow but he doesn’t know what makes it grow…” Mk. 4:28 (WE)
The latter rain comes just before the harvest.
It brings forth the final ripening.
“Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain…”Zech. 10:1
“They waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.” Job 29:23
When we challenge people to trust in Christ, the Spirit convinces them.
We need not fear giving altar calls.
“He said to them, ‘The harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers.
Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers for his harvest.’ ” Lk. 10:2
“Do you think the work of harvesting will not begin until the summer ends four months from now?
Look around you! Vast fields of human souls are ripening all around us, and are ready now for reaping.”
John 4:35
We don’t always get to
see our seeds harvested.
“They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.” Ps. 126:6
Even now the harvest workers are receiving their reward by gathering a harvest that brings eternal life. Then everyone who planted the seed and everyone who harvests the crop will celebrate together. John 4:36-38 “A wise son harvests in the summer; a disgraceful son sleeps right through the harvest.” Pr. 10:5
We will go to Heaven, but we may lose our opportunity to work in the harvest.
The harvest is in our hands.
