The Fields Are Ripe Unto Harvest
I had a dream 03/27/2014 and in the dream I was in a wheat field and I saw the Lord and He was holding a wheat sickle for harvesting wheat. He handed me the sickle and said to me just one word, “go”. It’s amazing that in the dream I could see the wheat so clearly and the fact that it was indeed ripe and yet in real life the wheat is not so easy to see, at least for me. We need eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to obey.
“Don’t you say, ‘In four more months the harvest will be here’? I’m telling you to look and see that the fields are ready to be harvested. The person who harvests the crop is already getting paid. He is gathering grain for eternal life. So the person who plants the grain and the person who harvests it are happy together. In this respect the saying is true: ‘One person plants, and another person harvests.’ I have sent you to harvest a crop you have not worked for. Other people have done the hard work, and you have followed them in their work.”
Then as now, Jesus had to open the eyes of the disciples as to the readiness of the wheat to be harvested as well as the urgency.
