The Feast of Harvest, the ingathering of the Firstfruits into the House of God has begun at sunset which is at 6:49 PM, October 2, 2020. The full moon in harvest time is so called the Harvest Moon because it rises as the sun sets and gives light to the reapers all night long. Then as the moon goes down, the sun begins to rise.
“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in THE DAY that the LORD binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound.”Isaiah 30:26
Jesus told a parable of the harvest of the ‘Wheat and the Tares’. When he had finished and everyone went home, his disciples came and asked him to explain it to them. Here’s what he said:
“The harvest is the end of the world…”Jesus, The Gospel of Matthew 13:24-30, 34-43
On the day of the harvest of the wheat, the weeds will be plainly visible, and they will be pulled up and burned.”
“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”Matthew 13:30
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not do righteousness is not of God, neither he that does not love his brother. For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that Wicked One, and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”1 John 3:10-12
The Feast of the Harvest, Ingathering, Tabernacles (Succoth)
Feast of the Harvest for the Ingathering of the Firstfruits is being celebrated in 2020 beginning from the evening of October 2 and ending on the evening of Friday, October 9. It is a time of great rejoicing for the House of Israel, the People of God! This time is upon us, reckoned also as the Feast of Harvest of the Firstfruits in the Field. Here are some things to consider:
The Law of the Firstfruits
“And the Feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labors, which you have sown in the field: and the Feast of Ingathering, which is in the end of the year… The first of the firstfruits of your land you shall bring into the House (Family or Temple) of the LORD your God.
Behold, I send an Angel before you, to keep you in the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Beware of him, and obey his voice… for My Name/authority is in him. But if you shall indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto your enemies, and an adversary unto your adversaries.”Exodus 23:16-22
The Ingathering on Mount Zion
“I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Sion/Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s Name written in their foreheads… And they sung as it were a new song before the throne … and no one could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth… These are they which follow the Lamb wheresoever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb… here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”Revelation 14:1-4
“And he shall send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his Elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”Jesus, Gospel of Matthew 24:31
When you hear the explanation of the parable of the Wheat and the Tares, you should understand perfectly. He said at the time of the Harvest, the weeds/tares would become plainly visible.
Amos saw a Basket of Firstfruits
“Thus has the Lord GOD shown to me: and behold a basket of summer fruit. And He said, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘A basket of summer fruit’. Then the LORD said to me, ‘The end is come upon My people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more…’”Amos 8:1-2
Question for YOU!
So now the question is: Do you want to be included in the Ingathering of Israel unto God and His Name or left behind in the weeds? Do you want to come up to the Mountain of the LORD and learn of Him or be left behind with the tares? The Trumpet has sounded for the Ingathering. If you hear it but don’t respond, that will be on you. But if when you hear and respond to it, great is your reward! A blessing will be poured upon you that you won’t be able to contain! The end has come… the time to decide is NOW!
