HARVEST TIME | SUNDAY NOV 2021 | SEASON 1 EPISODE 8 | PASTOR RE BOSWELL | BEREA COGIC, ROGERSVILLE AL
HARVEST TIME IS HERE
Even though Jesus was revealed 2000 years ago as the lamb of God slain before the foundations of the earth when he entered time the clock began concerning his work.
Difficult Days of Jesus
And after going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible [that is, consistent with Your will], let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” Matthew 26:39
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. John 4:34
I admonish to Have Faith in God just as the sign on the window outside of the church says. This is our most important activity. Though faith we obtain a good report and faith fuels our worship towards Our Creator. This is really the answer to the question.
Q: WHO Should you work for
A: Live for God, Work for God
John 4: 35-36
Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
Others have come along to work in a field that is ready to be plucked. So that those who came before you can rejoice along with you unto ETERNAL LIFE. Play your part! God shall add the increase after you do your part. And mainly your job is easy it is to believe!
The Old Saints used to say pay day is coming afterwhile.Anonymous
The Harvester isn’t waiting. He’s taking his pay, gathering in this grain that’s ripe for eternal life. Now the Sower is arm in arm with the Harvester, triumphant. That’s the truth of the saying, ‘This one sows, that one harvests.’ I sent you to harvest a field you never worked. Without lifting a finger, you have walked in on a field worked long and hard by others.” John 4: 36-38
WHERE should you work?
External Conditions should not determine your efforts. Be Adroit concerning your labor. (i.e. When in rains work inside).
If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
Know One Can Explain the Work of God.
4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
You can’t Explain everything Do Your job and your job mainly is to believe. But stay busy while you’re in this mode of FAITH
WHEN: should your work occur?
Regarding your Work
6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
Be careful not to judge me yet. Judging others is not a part of your job unless you sit upon a bench and work in Law and even then be careful not to judge me yet.
Matthew 7: 1 (1-4)
“For strong and powerful is the Lord God who judges.”
3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank (beam) in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck (small piece of wood, saw dust, mote) from your eye’; and look, a plank (beam, log) is in your own eye?
Message Bible 7 1-5 “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor.
HOW: You should work?
“Listen carefully: I am sending you out like sheep among wolves; so be wise as serpents, and innocent as doves [have no self-serving agenda].
Matthew 10:16 AMP
Three parts to this drama the scripture says be as subtill as serpents that is to not let a devil out slick you know what’s they are up to but don’t practice their customs.
PEOPLE OF GOD KNOW THIS:
When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Proverbs 16:7 AMP
The wolves serpents cockatrice the scorpion etc with have to honor you when your ways please God. They may try to run you out drag your name through the mud talk about you like a dog etc but at the end of the day they have to deal with their own chaotic heart and a slither of respect will remain still. Because your ways please the Lord.

Old Testament Scripture:
Isaiah 26:3 | PERFECT PEACE
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Perfection: involves completeness, in the universal language mathematics perfection is usually measured as 100%.
Naturally: Nobody’s Perfect? Yet there are three people in the Bible who God called Perfect. (Feel free to use the comment section to name one two or three of them.)
Spiritually: The Blood of Jesus is 100% in its entire meaning it lacks nothing This is the basis of the application of your peace.
New Testament Scripture:
Rev 2:18-21 | REPENT
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; 19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication, and she repented not. Rev 2:18-21
When the spirit of error goes unchallenged for a considerable length of time, truth and repentance would effectively invalidate the system upheld by its presence. Without truth the courage to change is absent. On a micro-level, it is improbable that individuals who led by the spirit of Jezebel admit to their flaws. Soon it becomes impossible for those who have a reprobate mind to repent. Cain was given an opportunity to repent (Gen. 4:7) and Esau, yet both “found no place for repentance even when seeking it with tears” (Hebrews 12:17).
The spirit of Jezebel’s typology is a consuming spirit but she shall be consumed at the end, as King Ahab’s wife was processed as mature by ravenous dogs after being trodden under horses’ hooves. The spirit of Jezebel becomes a central fixture working in the background of the church. Christ will make an example out of this church, “And I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts” (Revelation 2:23).
WORD: ADROIT: clever or skillful in using the hands or mind. Agile, Dexterous, Swift in Thought.
Akin to flexible, bendable, pliable
Being Adroit is a necessity in a hostile environment to Survive then Thrive then ultimately to Excel.
- When following the principle of God a person could excel in any given environment.
- Place a man of God in a barren field come back a year later and there will be lush provisions.
- The world is no match for the blood of Jesus
- Satan is no match for the blood
- Your flesh is no match for the blood
SCRIPTURE: Numbers 24: 4-9
While your getting that Matthew talk about the WHEAT and the TARE in his Gospel.
There is an intrinsic value of the TARE in WHEAT development
Result Through the years the enemy sewn tares in the school system
To remove the name of God from our schools. Tares have a Job!
The Dynamics of a Tare is to oppose the Word of God and the people who represent God just because they can.
Chaos has no rhyme or reason
Even though evolution theory was farfetched
I say that its maybe the second biggest lie that the enemy present to the world in the last 200 years that was accepted
The first of course is that Satan does not exist thus hell does not exist thus there are meager or litte consequences to your actions while upon your journey.
Evolution does occur in nature?
Species that are unable to adapt to there environments tend to be deleted from the gene pool over time.
Even man has a part to play in the preservation of species
Because we were given the job to dress and keep the environment.
And to make changes to increase the produce upon the earth.
The ability to adapt and the particular adroitness of a species becomes essential to its livelihood.
Last Week we Approached vicinity of God; Mountain of God (Horeb)
And the Bush that burned and was not consumed a miracle (suwr 5493). 4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. Exodus 3:4
Called an official spokesperson ambassador prophet mouthpiece
To Deliver 9 Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Exodus 3:9
Elevate purpose worship And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain. Exodus 3:12
Moses developed Character on the backside of the Desert but where was His people? The one’s who told on him instead of riding with Him. Aaron (Aaron was a progenitor of the priest class in Israel) Moses brother Miriam Moses Sister (and her tambourine).
His cousins etc.
When God has got you on the wheel you are by your self being molded shaped and pruned so that you could be a fruit producer
- Moses was the one God chose to lead the people out of captivity.
- He was God’s anointed vessel for this crucial task in such a pivotal point in History.
- Moses adroitness in leading the people out of Egypt unto the Promised land was key to his success.
4 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.
Change is stressful new environmental challenges causes problems and the ability to adapt becomes indispensable.
The Israelites not yet have crossed over (Hebrew: Avar) the Jordan (Baptism)
At this point Aaron was dead:
Aaron’s History (Golden Calf) Aaron’s inability to adapt to where God was leading Moses, he was disallowed to go any further unto the Promised land. Him and Aaron went upon the Mountain and Aarons son and Eleazar came down the mountain (Ex 20:24).
People still complaining | Despite the provisions God has laid out.
- How could you tell if you are on the wrong course?
- When your God is your belly then God is not your God.
- Solution: use your weapon of Fasting (i.e. prayer, the blood testimony) to keep your flesh in check.
6 And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
Your mouth can remove the hedge of protection that God provides. And specifically speaking against the one that God has chosen to lead his people.
Saraph (fiery) 8314 burning, poisonous serpent (refers to snake bite)
Isaiah denotes a dragon 14:29:30
Serpent (Nachash: Naw-khawsh) 5175 A Snake
7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.
2 things get people’s attention:
- Death gets people attention towards God’s consciousness
After a funeral people tend to go back to their lives unchanged but it is usually a prime time to plant good seeds towards God’s Harvest of Souls. PRODUCE
Look at your past
Look at your failures
Confront them with courage
The basis of psychosis and neurosis is denial
Traveling down a wrong road turn around don’t keep going expecting to arrive at your destination.
Israel was told to look up.
Look at your Mortal Enemy (Gen. 3:15)A
