Seasons of The Harvest

Seasons of The Harvest…

The Lord sent the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, the Hebrew Feast of Shavuot. It’s also called in Hebrew – Khag Ha Katzeer – the Feast of Harvest. In Israel the wheat harvest begins in the early summer with Shavuot-Pentecost.

Every year the Israelites would celebrate Shavuot in Jerusalem, then reap their harvest fields. The Spirit came on Pentecost because Pentecost is Khag Ha Katzeer – The Feast of Harvest to begin the harvest of souls. The Spirit came to give us the power to reap the harvest of salvation.

That was the last Great holy day given. We’re still in the harvest. The Spirit is spreading the Gospel and salvation. Lift up your eyes and look around; the harvest is ripe; it’s all around you. Look for people who need salvation.

Go and tell them the good news. You have the answer. The Spirit was given to you so you can also have power. Go forth into the fields of harvest – the Great Commission.

The Spirit will rest upon you, and you will be clothed with power. For Pentecost is Khag Ha Katzeer, the Feast of Harvest.

After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:3-8

Proclaim the Good News in your field of work and your field of neighbors. Share and be that witness to the answer of salvation.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
