Raise the Song of Harvest-Home

The Sermon …………………………..…………… Revelation 14 (Excerpts)

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal Gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said, “Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come”…….. I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was One “like the Son of Man” with a crown of gold on His head and sharp sickle in his Hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth and the earth was harvested…… Then I looked and there before me was Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with Him those had His Name written on their foreheads… And they sang a new song before the throne, a song sung only by those redeemed from the earth.

The Scripture Reading – Matthew 13: 24–30 ; 36-43
On occasion, when Jesus spoke in Parables, He also provided a clear and striking interpretation for His disciples and for us. Here our Savior compares the entire farming process – seeding, growing and harvesting – to that of His planting His spiritual seeds, His believing children. In this world of sin, the Evil One has also planted his weeds. Both will grow together until the final harvest, when the weeds will be destroyed and the wheat gathered into the heavenly barn.
