Morning by Morning, October 31 - The Festival of the Great Harvest

Morning by Morning, October 31 - The Festival of the Great Harvest
 
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Make me more like You today.  ...
 
"You shall observe the festival of harvest, of the first fruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall observe the festival of ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor" (Exodus 23:16).
 
When some people see pumpkins, they think of jack-o'-lanterns and Halloween. But with the eyes of Heaven, I think of Jesus and the great harvest. Prophetic voices say the spring and fall feasts of Israel are ultimately fulfilled in the first and second coming of Christ; and that the festival of harvest -- the festival of ingathering -- speaks of the great harvest and final ingathering of souls for the Kingdom of God just before the return of Christ. As You explained Your parable of the wheat and the weeds growing up together, You said, "The One who sows seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world" and "the harvest is the end of the age" (Matthew 13:36-43).
 
In great anticipation of the harvest of souls in every age and in the great harvest of souls at the end of the age, You commanded us to pray and invited us to be the answer to that prayer. You said, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest" (Matthew 9:35-38).
 
So tonight while some are lighting their candles to shine through the faces of their pumpkins, I pray You'd light a fire in our hearts to shine through the faces of Your children. "For it is the God who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ!" (2 Corinthians 4:6) Come, Holy Spirit. Stir in our hearts, shine through our faces, and send us into Your harvest, that we can celebrate through all eternity the great ingathering of souls to Your Kingdom! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

Isa 55:10-11

NIV As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My Word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

 

Prov 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining brighter and brighter until midday. BSB

 

Dan 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. NIV

Prov 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise. ESV
