Every trouble seeks to separate you from the love of Christ; but the Word says they cannot. They are not designed to draw you away. They are supposed to be stepping stones to victory. Each time you win a battle in faith, you are promoted. Your faith gets stronger and ready for another round. That is why the Bible says having done all, to stand. (Ephesians 6:13)
Gathering In The Harvest is akin to the harvesting of souls into the kingdom of Christ Jesus, our LORD. It is a task towards the advancement of the kingdom of GOD. It is the task of reaping in souls into the house of the Lord. It is a noble task, and it is the will of the Father in Heaven (1 Tim. 2:1-4, 2 Pet. 3:9).
You may be amazed at this: The in-gathering of souls into the kingdom of GOD, is a common talent that the Lord Jesus, has made available to every born again believer, and it is up to every such believer to decide on whether to do business with this talent or not. Concerning this talent, the Lord Jesus says in John 15:8:
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
However, like any divine mission, the devil may try to discourage you, put impediments in your path to fulfilling this divine task of Souls In-gathering – he may make you the subject of a mockery etc. Nevertheless, see yourself as a worker, as a reaper in the vineyard of the Lord Jesus. Your sender, the Lord Jesus himself, whose Spirit resides in the inside of you, is greater than he that is in the world (1 John 4;4).
Among your assignments as a reaper, is to water the field by investing your time and energy, in bringing new converts and new members to church.
In Matthew 12:30, the Lord says:
He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
Let these words of the Lord guide you today as you pray this prayer :
Father, in the name of Jesus, empower me afresh unto next levels today, as I align myself with the full demands of Operation Possess The Land Prophetic Agenda, in reaping in the harvest of souls for Christ Jesus – Matthew 12:30
