The God of the Harvest

Poor Richard – Psalm 67:1-7, “1 May God be gracious to us and bless us
       and make his face shine upon us,
 2 that your ways may be known on earth,
       your salvation among all nations.
 3 May the peoples praise you, O God;
       may all the peoples praise you.
 4 May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
       for you rule the peoples justly
       and guide the nations of the earth.
 5 May the peoples praise you, O God;
       may all the peoples praise you.
 6 Then the land will yield its harvest,
       and God, our God, will bless us.
 7 God will bless us,
       and all the ends of the earth will fear him.”

Thanksgiving is a celebration of the harvest. Like many things however, the earth is a shallow copy of heaven. Just as the tabernacle and the temple were built according to God’s instructions, there is a harvest that our harvests are a shallow copy.

Matthew 9:35-38, “35Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.””

We are the heavenly harvest. We are the wheat among which Satan planted tares. We are apart of the True Vine. The heavenly harvest that is yet to come:

Revelation 14:14-16, “14I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one “like a son of man” with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15Then 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.” 16So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.”
