THE HARVEST by Mary Dorian 12-13-2020
Matthew 13:24-30 Then Jesus taught themanother parable:
Heavens kingdom realm can be compared to a farmer who planted good seed in his field.
25 But at night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and planted poisonous weedsamong the wheat and ran away.
26 When the wheat sprouted and bore grain, the weeds also appeared.
27 So the farmers hired hands came to him and said, Sir, wasnt that good seed that you sowed in the field? Where did all these weeds come from?
28 He answered, This has to be the work of an enemy!
They replied, Do you want us to go and gather up all the weeds?
29 No, he said. If you pull out the weeds you might uproot the wheat at the same time. 30 You must allow them both to grow together until the time of harvest. At that time, Ill tell my harvesters to make sure they gather the weeds first and tie them all in bundles to be burned. Then they will harvest the wheat and put it into my barn. TPT
Matthew 13:36-42 Jesus left the crowds and went inside the house where he was staying. Then his disciples approached him and asked, Please explain the deeper meaning of the parable of the weeds growing in the field of wheat.
37 He answered, The man who sowed his field with good seed represents me, the Son of Man.
38 And the field is the world. The good seeds I sow are the children of the kingdom realm. The weeds are the children of the Evil One,
39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest points to the end of this age, and the harvesters are Gods messengers.[
40 As the weeds are bundled up and thrown into the fire, so it will be at the close of the age.
41 The Son of Man will send his messengers, and they will uproot everything out of his kingdom. All the lawless ones and everything that causes sin will be removed. 42 And they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will experience great sorrow, pain, and anguish. TPT
John 4:34-37 Then Jesus spoke up and said, My food is to be doing the will of him who sent me and bring it to completion.
35 As the crowds emerged from the village, Jesus said to his disciples, Why would you say, The harvest is another four months away? Look at all the people comingnow is harvest time! For their hearts are like vast fields of ripened grainready for a spiritual harvest.
36 And everyone who reaps these souls for eternal life will receive a reward. And those who plant spiritual seeds and those who reap the harvest will celebrate together with great joy!
37 And this confirms the saying, One sows the seed and another reaps the harvest. TPT
John 4:34 Jesus said to them, My food (nourishment) is to do the will (pleasure) of Him Who sent Me and to accomplish and completely finish His work.
35 Do you not say, It is still four months until harvest time comes? Look! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting.
36 Already the reaper is getting his wages [he who does the cutting now has his reward], for he is gathering fruit (crop) unto life eternal, so that he who does the planting and he who does the reaping may rejoice together.
37 For in this the saying holds true, One sows and another reaps. AMP
Matt 9:38 So pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out and thrust laborers into His harvest. AMP
John 14:16-17 And I will ask the Father and he will give you anotherSavior, the Holy Spirit of Truth, who will be to you a friend just like meand he will never leave you. The world wont receive him because they cant see him or know him. But you will know him intimately, because he will make his home in you and will live inside you. TPT
John 16:5-15 But now that Im about to leave you and go back to join the One who sent me, you need to be told. Yet, not one of you are asking me where Im going.
6 Instead your hearts are filled with sadness because Ive told you these things.
7 But heres the truth: Its to your advantage that I go away, for if I dont go away the Divine Encouragerwill not be released to you. But after I depart, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will expose sin and prove that the world is wrong about Gods righteousness and his judgments.
9 Sin, because they refuse to believe in who I am.
10 Gods righteousness, because Im going back to join the Father and youll see me no longer.
11 And judgment because the ruler of this dark world has already received his sentence.
12 There is so much more I would like to say to you, but its more than you can grasp at this moment.
13 But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, he will unveil the reality of every truthwithin you. He wont speak his own message, but only what he hears from the Father, and he will reveal prophetically to you what is to come.
14 He will glorify me on the earth, for he will receive from me what is mineand reveal it to you.
15 Everything that belongs to the Father belongs to methats why I say that the Divine Encourager will receive what is mine and reveal it to you. TPT
Acts 1:6-11 Every time they were gathered together, they asked Jesus, Lord, is it the time now for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?
7 He answered, The Father is the one who sets the fixed dates and the times of their fulfillment. You are not permitted to know the timing of all that he has prepared by his own authority. 8 But I promise you thisthe Holy Spirit will come upon you and you will be filled with power.[a] And you will be my messengers[b] to Jerusalem, throughout Judea, the distant provinces[c]even to the remotest places on earth![d]
9 Right after he spoke those words, the disciples saw Jesus lifted into the sky and disappear into a cloud!
10 As they stared into the sky, watching Jesus ascend, two men in white robes suddenly appeared beside them.
11 They told the startled disciples, Galileans, why are you staring up into the sky? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but he will come back the same way that you saw him ascend. TPT
Rev 10:5-7 Then the mighty angel whom I saw astride the sea and the land raised his right hand to heaven
6 and swore an oath by him who lives for an eternity of eternities, the Creator of heaven and earth and sea and all that is in them:
No more delay!
7 For in the day when the seventh angel is to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be fulfilled, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. TPT
Rev 10:5 Then the [mighty] angel whom I had seen stationed on sea and land raised his right hand to heaven (the sky),
6 And swore in the name of (by) Him Who lives forever and ever, Who created the heavens (sky) and all they contain, and the earth and all that it contains, and the sea and all that it contains. [He swore] that no more time should intervene and there should be no more waiting or delay,
7 But that when the days come when the trumpet call of the seventh angel is about to be sounded, then God's mystery (His secret design, His hidden purpose), as He had announced the glad tidings to His servants the prophets, should be fulfilled (accomplished, completed). AMP
John 9:4-5 While I am with you, it is daytime and we must do the works of God who sent me while the light shines. For there is coming a dark night when no one will be able to work.
5 As long as I am with you my life is the light that pierces the worlds darkness. TPT
John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] AMP
John 16:33 And everything Ive taught you is so that the peace which is in me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world! TPT
