Look to the Fields
John 4:35 “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”
Jesus starts with the natural and then pulls you into the spiritual.
John 4:36-38 “And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.”
This was a harvest someone else sowed.
Hosea 10:12 “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”
- Break Up Fallow Ground
Most of the time when God speaks to me, I feel good. Sometimes, however, I feel like I need to repent a little while. The Lord has said, ‘My calendar is not your calendar. My promises are conditional, but My love is not conditional.’ The ‘Year of Abundance’ has not yet been fulfilled. This is just an addendum ‘Look unto the Fields’. That is our mandate. I still hear the sound of the abundance of rain. The Lord is sending us revival, but we need to ‘Look unto the Fields’.
Col 3:2 “Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth.” Look unto the Fields!
Seek the Lord in 2013 and seek after what is most precious to His heart—the Fields.
The church should be filled with people teaching Bible Studies around a coffee table. Hunger is beautiful. ‘They that hunger and thirst after righteousness SHALL BE FILLED.’
We must get busy and teach Bible Studies this year. It’s time to sow seeds in 2013.
Go up and Go in. Look up (to the Lord Jesus) and go in (to the Fields). Start going into the Fields and witness. There’s an alcoholic that’s praying for a church to reach him. We’ve got to reach this city.
It is time to sow in 2013!
Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
