“The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few”.
Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus. Let us remind ourselves of some of the important things in the journey of Faith. As Christians it is our responsibility to do God’s work, according to the gifts we have been given. the benefits of doing God’s work far outweigh any failure.
As we get closer to the end of the world, God’s work is getting easier and easier. For example, a person may be assigned to cultivate a two-acre [2 ha] bush, first removing all the grass and trees and then plowing with a hand plow, after which he sows the seeds, and another may be given the task of harvesting 10 hectares. now the first one has been given a hard job but for a few hectares..
but the last one has only been given a lighter job! Harvesting but many hectares. And so it is that in these last days, God’s work is not difficult because it does not involve plowing, sowing or watering… but only involves reaping!… But that’s not enough… The harvest fields are very plentiful, so it makes the work much bigger. The Lord Jesus said…
John 4:35 “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37 For in this the saying is true, ‘One sows, and another reaps.’
38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have suffered, and you have entered into their troubles. ”
He goes on to say…
Matthew 9:36 “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest ”.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, this is not the age of the first church where you will go to a place where you will find people who have never heard of Jesus. of Christians, already have they ever heard of Jesus.. do it yourself, follow anyone and ask, you know Jesus.. you will hear the answer he will tell you..That is because some have already planted and watered, they already have a certain foundation in their lives… the rest of the work is just the harvest !.
And the harvest work is not difficult! It’s very light but very big! ..so we are expected to work harder than the people of the early church, many have already known Christ, but they are still in the fields (in the world.
The work required is to take them out of the fields and bring them into the barn of the Lord. but if they are kept in the barn to the Lord they shall be safe.. from the insects and the Animals, and the thieves… will be hidden away and protected from all kinds of corruption. Where is the barn of the Lord?, a person who has obeyed Christ and decided to turn from evil and turn to Him completely and be baptized, in the spirit world he is ready to enter the barn of God, hidden by God… will be seen with the eyes but in the spirit will not be seen, his life is hidden as the bible says in.
Colossians 3:3 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory ”.
So God’s Warehouse begins here on earth! .. Salvation begins here on earth. if perdition begins here on earth, and salvation is so so… You will not see a man who commits an abominable evil and say he is not yet lost that he will perish when he dies no! .. in his wickedness he is already lost, maybe he will just turn around! But where he is he is already lost!… In the same way you cannot say that a righteous person is not yet saved.. and that he will be saved when he gets there… that is the devil’s lie… in his righteousness he is already saved !! salvation begins here on earth… GOD’S STORAGE BEGINS HERE ON EARTH…
Harvest is brought into the barn here on earth… heaven is a continuation of the barn, which has already begun its work on earth. so it is our responsibility to do God’s work… Have they already heard Jesus mentioned in their lives, perhaps from their childhood? they have only remained nominal Christians, only religious Christians but Jesus is not in their hearts… .so the only step left is to explain with all knowledge the importance of Jesus in Life different from what they have heard in the past.
How Jesus can change people’s hearts. but also remember the word of the Lord “The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few”.
This means that the work is still very large… and so it is to dedicate ourselves to it and also to ask the Lord to raise up more workers around the world. That aspect of prayer is very important in Life and is ignored by many… but it is a very important aspect of asking the Lord to send workers. And we also each of us standing in his place.
May the Lord help us and hold our hand, and most of all bless us all
