1. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is ripe, the Lord of HARVEST is ready and REAPERS are at work to separate WHEAT, TARES and CHAFF. The Bible says:
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the HARVEST OF THE EARTH is ripe” (Revelation 14:14-15)
2. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is the conclusion of allotted cycles of SOWING and REAPING. The earth is the FIELD and the “SEED is the word of God” (Luke 8:11) The SOWER is God, the SEED is His WORD and the WORD is God, as the Bible says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1) The WORD was planted in the Garden of Eden and grew into the TREE OF LIFE, whose fruit is EVERLASTING LIFE “and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” (Revelation 22:2) Shortly afterwards, another seed crept into Eden and the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL sprang up beside the TREE OF LIFE. God warned Adam to stay clear of the second tree, saying: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof THOU SHALT SURELY DIE” (Genesis 2:17) It is evident God did not plant this tree because everything God made “was very good” (Genesis 1:31) God did not plant the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL to tempt Adam , as some argue, because “God cannot be tempted with evil, NEITHER TEMPTED HE ANY MAN” (James 1:1) The TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL got into the Garden because Adam slept on duty, as it is written: “But while men slept, HIS ENEMY came and SOWED TARES among the WHEAT, and went his way” (Matthew 13:25) The enemy that sowed TARES is Satan and the seed is FALSEHOOD. The Lord Jesus Christ related this parable above to explain how FALSEHOOD was crawled into Eden. Over time, the two trees filled the earth with WHEAT and TARES. WHEAT is the HARVEST of TRUTH. TARES are the offsprings of FALSEHOOD. The two SEEDS brought forth, in every age, according to their pedigree and REAPERS gathered them by their fruits, as the Bible says: “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” (Matthew 7:16) In the process of time, TARES grew abundantly, polluted the FIELD and MINGLED with the WHEAT. The HARVEST of WHEAT was threatened and God moved to renew His FIELD and preserve His HARVEST. God did two things. ONE, the WORD, that is TRUE SEED, became flesh and dwelt on earth. God was manifest in Jesus Christ to sow undiluted WORD/SEED by SACRIFICE on the Cross, at Calvary. TWO, the blood of Jesus Christ was shed to purge toxins of TARES and prepare the hearts of men to receive SALVATION. This is the incorruptible SEED; God was manifest in Jesus Christ and SALVATION is preached in His NAME in all nations and languages. If any man believes something else, it is FALSEHOOD. The Lord did not pull out the TARES, as that may harm the WHEAT, but said: “Let both grow together until the harvest:… ” (Matthew 13:30) Having done all that, Jesus Christ went back to heaven to await the FINAL HARVEST OF THE EARTH. Now, the FIELD is RIPE and READY for HARVEST. The Lord of HARVEST is coming to receive the bounty of His FIELD. He will burn the TARES and TRANSLATE His precious WHEAT to MANSIONS prepared for them in heavenly placed (John 14:2) Where do you stand? Are you WHEAT or TARES?
3. HARVEST OF THE EARTH kicked off as soon as the RAIN fell as promised by Jesus Christ, before His ascension. The first SHOWERS came at PENTECOST and the apostles went forth to sow the earth with the WORD. Faithful men and women, in who dwelt the Holy Ghost, followed their footsteps and sowed the TRUE SEED in all nations and tongues. They went out in every generation, empowered by the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. At the end of every dispensation, those who heard and received the undiluted WORD were separated and gathered as WHEAT into the bosom of the Lord. But TARES found their way into the told as soon as the men and women who received the SHOWERS were gone, no sooner were they gone, as foretold: “Also of your own selves shall men arise, SPEAKING PERVERSE THINGS, to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 12:30) And as RAIN over famished land, God always remembered His people and poured His Spirit to renew the Church in every age. Regrettably, the same thing happened as TARES crept in and built sects and denominations on the ashes of every REVIVAL. They attach themselves to the vineyard with FALSEHOOD, thrive on DECEPTION and grow into a form of godliness but lacking the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ, as WHEAT. The Bible says they have, having “…a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:5) TARES look so much like WHEAT by all outward appearances, tassles and all, but have not the SEAL and POWER of the Holy Ghost. TARES are planted in the Church but are not born into the family of God by His Spirit. TARES know and venerate their pastors and bishops as lords, but neither know nor are known by Jesus Christ, as the Bible says: “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:8-9) It is all so muddled up today, that no man may justifiably separate WHEAT from TARES, but Christ’s REAPERS are not men but angels (Matthew 13:39) Angels of God are not deceived by riches, fame, title or mantle and see through every mask of false piety. They are already here, searching every heart to gather, first, the TARES, as it is written: “…in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, GATHER ye together first the TARES, and BIND THEM IN BUNDLES to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn” (Matthew 13:30) REAPERS are presently busy all over the world, GATHERING TARES in BUNDLES. Every parish Church that will not endure Present Truth is a BUNDLE tied up in LIES. Every denomination or sect that glorifies tradition over the incorruptible SEED is a BUNDLE of TARES bound together in FALSEHOOD. Finally, smaller BUNDLES are BUNDLED into one monstrous INTERFAITH BUNDLE, ready for burning with fire. Perhaps you want to ask why TARES are gathered first. I will tell you. ONE, to allow more WHEAT to mature and bring forth bountifully. TWO, to give room for CHAFF to be separated from WHEAT. Now that you know about TARES, I plead with you to come out the of BUNDLES before they are set on fire. If you have escaped the BUNDLING, rejoice not yet, but do everything possible not to end up as CHAFF.
4. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is not over until every CHAFF is separated and WHEAT is safely TRANSLATED to be with the Lord. The Lord of HARVEST is determined that His HARVEST is pure, sans CHAFF and “will throughly PURGE HIS FLOOR, and gather his WHEAT into the garner; but he will BURN THE CHAFF with unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12) CHAFF is not TARES and is handled differently. Whereas TARES are uprooted and gathered in BUNDLES, CHAFF are separated by THRESHING and WINNOWING to obtain HARVEST of WHEAT without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:27) CHAFF is the tragic end of those who started well, nourished by the OIL OF SALVATION, but ended up famished and dried. They started out with oil and burning lamps but somehow the oil leaked out and the lamp went off. Having tasted the goodness of the Lord and denied Him, there is no repentance for those who go the way of CHAFF.The Bible says: “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:4-6) The Lord has surveyed and weighed His vineyard. He sees a Church riddled with CHAFF from top to bottom; men and women who were once bubbling with the LIFE of Christ are now LIFELESS. The SALT of the earth are now trodden down on the altar of fame, riches and satanic power. The handwriting is on the wall for all to see, as it is written: “…if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men” (Matthew 5:13) Present distress and uncertainties in all nations is proof that the THRESHING and WINNOWING of the Church has begun in earnest. Multitudes are THRESHED, WINNOWED and blown away daily, from pressure to maintain RIGHT-STANDING with God in perilous times. Those who will not endure fellowship of Christ’s suffering to the end are CHAFF, and the Bible says: “Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them” (Psalms 35:5) If truly you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, I challenge you to keep your lamp burning and do not allow your oil to run dry. If any man has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
5. HARVEST OF THE EARTH is the glorious TRANSLATION of the ELECT CHURCH after TARES are uprooted and CHAFF separated from the WHEAT. WHEAT, that is ELECT CHURCH, is the assembly of men and women who are “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of INCORRUPTIBLE, by the WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23) ELECT CHURCH is the LITTLE FLOCK that stayed true to the INCORRUPTIBLE WORD in all ages (Luke 12:32) At the end of every move of the Holy Ghost, those who stayed true to REVEALED TRUTH were gathered and sealed as the HARVEST of the age. At the coming of the Lord, those of us alive shall be united with them and shall all be TRANSLATED to be like Him and with Him forever, as it is written: “Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17) I bare witness that very soon, the last bunch of TARES shall be BUNDLED with the rest and the tiniest CHAFF blown away. Then, shall the Lord of HARVEST appear in clouds of glory to receive His HARVEST. Beloved, the coming of the Lord is so close. This is not the time to stake your SALVATION on denominational doctrines or tradition. I plead with you to seek the God now when He may still be found and prepare to meet the Lord.
6. Perhaps you are not BORN AGAIN or got caught up in the BUNDLING of TARES, I witness to you that Jesus Christ is God manifest in flesh. The preaching of SALVATION in the NAME of Jesus Christ is the TRUE SEED and WORD of God. Receive Jesus Christ today, as your Lord and Saviour, and stake your claim to ETERNAL GLORY, amen
