Being people who for the most part are not agricultural in our understanding, we can read a parable of Jesus and find it a nice thought but not enter into the truth it is releasing. The reason being we do not have an agricultural culture in order to fully understand what is being said. This is true in any industry. I have a good friend who is an architect and his understanding of blueprints is beyond anything I understand, so I lean on his understanding in order to learn more about blueprints.
We as the church love the word harvest. It speaks of increase, prosperity, evangelism, souls, money, all the things we love and makes us rejoice. But one thing many do not talk about when it comes to harvest time is how it is a time of revealing what has been sown. Seeds sown are not revealed until the harvest. Jesus said it this way, “Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.” (Matthew 13) We are in a time of the harvest! What has been sown is being shown.
The time of the harvest we are in is revealing some seeds that were sown we did not know about, or may have speculated about but now are being revealed. Some seeds are tares and they are being bundled in order to be burned. It is hard to hear the truth about seeds that were sown we did not know were sown but are now being shown. Remember, he bundled and burned the tares first, then he gathered the wheat to bring into his barn. Friends, we are in the bundling of the tares stage of harvest, this is why we are hearing and seeing things in every area of society. Knowing where we are is important because the Lord has to remove the tares before He can gather the wheat. No this is not the rapture, this is the kingdom cycle of harvest. Can you see it happening? I can. I hope that helps you understand where we are and what is coming next.
