Vision of Harvest

   VISION OF HARVEST

(Pastor Lee Jackson – FFWC)

  1. 1.        INTRODUCTIONHARVEST IS AN EXCITING TIME OF THE YEAR FOR THE FARMER.  ALL THE INVESTMENT, ALL THE HARD WORK, ALL THE HOPES AND DREAMS HINGE UPON THE SUCCESS OF THE HARVEST.   GOD ORIGINATED THE A VISION FOR THE HARVEST OF SOULS:  JOHN 3:16 SAYS “FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD …”  HIS LOVE WAS NOT PASSIVE; IT WAS ACTIVE.  IT DID SOMETHING…IT CAUSED JESUS TO COME, HE SAW OUR PITIFUL CONDITION AND HE DID WHAT WAS NECESSARY,  HE TOOK OUR SIN AND DIED IN OUR PLACE. CHRIST CAME INTO THE WORLD TO SAVE SINNERS (1TIM 1:15).

 

  1. 2.        HE HAD A VISION OF HARVEST (MATT 9:35 – 38 NKJV, LUKE 4:16 – 21 NKJV)

Ÿ  HE KNEW WHO HE WAS & WHY HE CAME

Ÿ  THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WAS UPON HIM

Ÿ   ANOINTED TO PREACH GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR

Ÿ  HEAL THE BROKEN HEARTED

Ÿ  PROCLAIM FREEDOM FOR PRISONERS

Ÿ  RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND

Ÿ  GIVE LIBERTY TO THE OPPRESSED

Ÿ  PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD

Ÿ  TODAY THIS SCRIPTURE IS FULFILLED IN YOUR HEARING

 3.        HE WAS FAITHFUL TO THE VISION

 4.        HE NOT ONLY CAME; HE SAW (VS 36)

Ÿ  HE SAW THE MULTITUDES

Ÿ  HE WAS MOVED WITH COMPASSION

Ÿ  THEY WERE WEARY AND SCATTERED

Ÿ  THEY WERE HARASSED BY THE ENEMY & HELPLESS

Ÿ  THEY WERE LIKE SHEEP W/O SHEPHERD

Ÿ  THEY WERE UNABLE TO HELP THEMSELVES

5.         WHAT HE SAW CAUSED HIM TO ACT (VS 35)

Ÿ  HE WENT INTO THE TOWNS & VILLAGES

Ÿ  HE PREACHED THE GOOD NEWS

Ÿ  HE TAUGHT THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS COME

Ÿ  HE HEALED THE SICK & DISEASED

6.        AS A CONTINUATION OF HIS ACTING – HE SENDS (MATT 10:1,5-8 NKJV)

Ÿ  HE SENT THEM FIRST TO THE TWELVE TO ISRAEL

Ÿ  TO PREACH THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Ÿ  HEAL THE SICK

Ÿ  RAISE THE DEAD

Ÿ  DRIVE OUT DEMONS

Ÿ  FREELY THEY HAD RECEIVED

Ÿ  FREELY THEY WERE TO GIVE

Ÿ  THEN HE SENT THEM TO THE NATIONS (MATT 28:18 – 20, MARK 16: 17, 18 NKJV)

Ÿ  ALL AUTHORITY IS HEAVEN & EARTH IS GIVEN HIM

Ÿ  GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS

Ÿ  BAPTIZING THEM (NAME: FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT)

Ÿ  TEACHING THEM TO OBEY EVERYTHING HE COMMANDED

Ÿ  HE EQUIPS THEM HE SENDS (ACTS 1:8, 1 COR 12: 4 – 11 NKJV)

Ÿ  THESE SIGNS WILL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE;

Ÿ  WE ARE TO CONTINUE THE WORK THAT HE BEGAN

Ÿ  TO DO THIS WE MUST SHARE HIS VISION FOR HARVEST

CONCLUSION –  Pro 29:18  Where there is no VISION, the people PERISH: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.  PARAPHRASE: WHERE THERE IS NO VISION PEOPLE PERISH, BUT WHEN WE GET THE VISION AND ARE OBEDIENT TO THE HEAVENLY VISION THEN PEOPLE LIVE AND WE FIND HAPPINESS AND FULFILLMENT. DO YOU HAVE A VISION FOR THE HARVEST?  IS THE SPIRIT OF THE SOVEREIGN LORD UPON YOU?  ISAIAH HEARD THE LORD  “WHOM SHALL I SEND, WHO WILL GO FOR US… AND HE RESPONDED “HERE AM I!  SEND ME.”   HOW WILL YOU RESPOND?
