The Messiah and the Harvest

Sermons

Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!

John 4:35 (NKJV)

Jesus, during His conversation with the Samaritan woman, identifies Himself as the Messiah, the long-awaited for Anointed One.

He is the promised Seed of the woman who is to crush the serpent’s head and redeem God’s people from their sin. He also makes the wonderful declaration that the harvest has come and that sowing and reaping will coincide. The fields are white with harvest and the laborers are being sent to reap and bring in the fruit of the labor that has and will be performed on behalf of the Master.
