Called to Bring in the Harvest ~ For we are in the Valley of Decision!

Whatever your political party preferences are, we as Christians should see these times as times of gain. In the sense, that Christ's gain in this world is our work. "I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have complete boldness, so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. So what shall I choose? I do not know" ~ Philippians 1:20-22.

We live to declare the works of the Lord ~ Psalm 118:17.  Now is clearly a time for great harvest.  He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field" ~ Luke 10:20

All by itself the earth produces a crop—first the stalk, then the head, then grain that ripens within.  And as soon as the grain is ripe, he swings the sickle, because the harvest has come. Then He asked, “To what can we compare the kingdom of God? With what parable shall we present it?"…Mark 4:28-30.

With the parable of the weeds...

"The field is the world, and the good seed represents the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. As the weeds are collected and burned in the fire, so will it be at the end of the age".…Matthew 13:38-40.

So..."Let the nations be aroused And come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, For there I will sit to judge All the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; the vats overflow for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision".…Joel 3:12-14.
