Harvest during tribulation.
God’s love is straight to the point.
The reason why the world is so broken is because people do not understand GOD’S LOVE.
God’s love offends most people because it requires sacrifice. It’s the kind of love that allows His own innocent Son to be sacrificed, brutalized and crushed to save His enemies. Jesus Christ suffered rejection by a whole generation so we could be accepted into God’s family. It’s the kind of love that denies itself in order to serve others.
The only thing that can satisfy the love of God is the benefit of others yet it’s the love rejected by even most Christians. The fleshly fallen nature of man is only concerned about benefiting itself and this is why people become offended when God calls them to serve others.
I wonder how many people who call themselves Christian actually responds to the commandment that the Lord gave us when He told us in John 15 to love one another as He has loved us?
How did Jesus demonstrate His love toward us?
HE DENIED HIMSELF AND TOOK UP HIS CROSS AND HE DIED SO THAT WE MIGHT LIVE AND THIS IS THE CALL OF SERVANT HOOD IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN FULFILLING THE GREAT COMMISSION.
How will people be reached with the love of God if we refuse to pay the price through demonstrated love?
WHAT THE CHURCH IS GOING TO LEARN DURING THE TIME OF TRIBULATION IS TO SERVE EACH OTHER IN THE LOVE OF GOD
We will only leave this earth when our work here is completed.
How selfish of people to want to be raptured without reaching others with the gospel of Jesus Christ?
The true followers of Jesus Christ who understand the heart of God knows it’s now about winning souls through surrendered lives because people for whom Christ died is the only thing that we can take with us when we leave. Winning souls by telling others about what Jesus did for us is a way of expressing our gratitude for what He did for us.
There is no excuse. God can use anybody. The only requirement is a willing heart. God is able to do what He calls us to do because it’s not by power nor by might but by the Spirit of God.
The only way to operate in the power of God’s love is through sacrifice of ones own agendas.
2 Corinthians 4: 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death works in us, but life in you.
As we lay down our lives for the sake of others, the law of Christ is fulfilled in us, which is the law of love.
Galatians 6:2 Bear you one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
John 15: 12 This is My commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
14 You are My friends, if you do whatever I command you.
In 2011 after a year assignment and kingdom exploit, God the Father spoke to me with a voice of fire that burned right through me and He declared; “there are no adequate words that can articulate the majestic honor and glory that permeates a life sacrificed so that the God of wonders might be glorified. It has eternal consequences that only eternity will tell”
Yet most people forfeit the eternal reward of a surrendered life. I say to you that the most miserable people to be pitied are the ones only living for themselves.
What will they present to the Lord when they stand before Him in the judgment?
God showed me this horrific reality. If I am Satan, I do not have to physically kill you to destroy you as a child of God. All I need to do is to cause you to live for yourself.
What will be the consequences of this?
I withhold the seed of your live to be sown into the purposes of Gods kingdom and I destroy the eternal harvest of your destiny.
I say to you that the body of Christ is going nowhere until God has brought in the ordained harvest through our surrendered lives, because Jesus only comes after the time of harvest – James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brothers, to the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
8 Be you also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.
Where is Jesus during the time of the tribulation?
We see Him sitting on a white cloud reaping His harvest before the time of wrath comes, which is after the tribulation.
We see the great commission being fulfilled.
We see Him calling us again to be patient, exactly as James admonished us, until He reaps the precious fruit of the earth.
Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the middle of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from now on: Yes, said the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and on the cloud one sat like to the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
Then comes the wrath !
Revelation 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
We see that the wrath comes after we see the sign in the moon, the sun and the stars, which happens only after the tribulation judgments and shakings Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Isaiah confirmed these facts – Isaiah 13:
9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
The DAY OF THE LORD shall be the time of His anger and wrath, which only comes after the harvest is gathered through the preaching of the gospel – Joel 3: 9 Proclaim you this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all you heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause your mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put you in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
15 #The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.
17 So shall you know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.
18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth out of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim.
19 Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.
20 But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwells in Zion.
If you are offended by the love of God then you don’t understand the way of the cross.
