The Harvest is Past
Jeremiah 8: 1-20
Vs. 5 - Look who he is talking to - His people - backsliding - a vivid picture of the church today. What about you?
Vs. 6 - No true repentance today among God's people - say we're sorry but go right back to the sin
Vs. 7 - Even the creatures know better than to push the judgment of God - is man that depraved today?
1 Peter 4:17
Vs. 11- The whole world is crying for peace and safety and there is none outside the peace of Christ 1 Thess. 5:3
Vs. 13- There will be no fruit left of what God had given them - sound like America? What about on an individual basis?
Vs. 20- The people had refused to believe Jeremiah's message from God, so god had to send a foe from the north to judge them. As they were surrounded by these troops, the crops on the outside were ready to be harvested. But they were unable to harvest them, and as they were starving on the inside, the crops were rotting in the fields. The summer had ended, and the harvest has past. Time had ran out on them, for they had crossed God's deadline.
Psalm 9: 17 - The Harvest is passing away for our Country
Just as God warned in times past of His coming judgment, I believe we are getting warnings daily;
Hurricanes, Floods, Droughts, Earthquakes, etc.
John 4: 35 - The Harvest is passing for the Church
If the Church is going to wins souls for Jesus it better do it now! On one side stands Jesus, on the other side the lost, and in the middle we stand as God's servants and our job is to get them to Jesus.
Hebrews 3: 7-8 - The Harvest is passing for Individuals
Time is running short to make a commitment to Jesus - 2 Corinthians 6:2 says that the time is TODAY! - James 4:14 says that your life is like a VAPOR! We know not how long we have.
Have you been backsliding?
Do you need to truly repent?
If Jesus looked under the leaves of your tree would He find fruit?
In light of the condition of the world are you witnessing to the lost?
Have you been putting off true commitment to Christ?
