The Harvest

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 5 months ago

 There was once a spider who lived in a cornfield. He was a big spider and

he had spun a beautiful web between the corn stalks. He got fat eating all

the bugs that would get caught in his web. He liked his home and planned

to stay there for the rest of his life.

One day the spider caught a little bug in his web, and just as the spider

was about to eat him, the bug said, "If you let me go I will tell you

something important that will save your life." The spider paused for a

moment and listened because he was amused. "You better get out of this

cornfield," the little bug said, "The harvest is coming!"

The spider smiled and said, "What is this harvest you are talking about? I

think you are just telling me a story." But the little bug said, "Oh no,

it is true. The owner of this field is coming to harvest it soon. All the

stalks will be knocked down and the corn will be gathered up. You will be

killed by the giant machines if you stay here."

The spider said, "I don't believe in harvests and giant machines that

knock down corn stalks. How can you prove this?" The little bug

continued, "Just look at the corn. See how it is planted in rows? It

proves this field was created by an intelligent designer." The spider

laughed and mockingly said, "This field has evolved and has nothing to do

with a creator. Corn always grows that way." The bug went on to

explain, "Oh no. This field belongs to the owner who planted it, and the

harvest is coming soon." The spider grinned and said to the little bug, "I

don't believe you," and then the spider ate the little bug for lunch.

A few days later, the spider was laughing about the story the little bug

had told him. He thought to himself, "A harvest! What a silly idea. I have

lived here all of my life and nothing has ever disturbed me. I have been

here since these stalks were just a foot off the ground, and I'll be here

for the rest of my life, because nothing is ever going to change in this

field. Life is good, and I have it made."

The next day was a beautiful sunny day in the cornfield. The sky above was

clear and there was no wind at all. That afternoon as the spider was about

to take a nap, he noticed some thick dusty clouds moving toward him. He

could hear the roar of a great engine and he said to himself, "I wonder

what that could be?"

Every promise God has ever made has and will come to pass.  800 years

before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah wrote of the coming of the Lord

Jesus Christ (Isaiah 53:3-12).  He wrote in detail of all that would

happen to the Lord and it did come to pass just as he had written under

God's divine inspiration.  Read Matthew 27 and John 19.  Just as the past

prophesies have come true, so will all of the future prophesies.  Jesus is

coming again (Revelation 1:9) and will take all of those who have put

their trust in Him (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).  I encourage you to make

Jesus the Lord of your life if you have never done so before.  He promised

to forgive your every sin and make you a child of God.

(Isaiah 1:18) (2 Corinthians 5:17)

God in His everlasting mercy wants none to perish, but has made a way for

every human being to have eternal life with Him in Heaven.  It is then up

to us to accept or reject this free gift.  The Bible declares in Acts

4:12 "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name

under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."  Jesus is the

only way to have eternal life and anyone can have this gift by opening

their heart to Him and confessing Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

(Romans 10:9-13)

I encourage you to study the Bible and invite the Lord to speak to your

heart as you read and learn.  God promised; as you draw closer to Him, He

will draw closer to you. (James 4:8)

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

2 Peter 3:9-10 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men

count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any

should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the

Lord will come as a thief in the night."

2 Corinthians 6:2 "Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the

day of salvation."

Isaiah 55:6-7 "Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him

while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man

his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy

upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon."

2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new

creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
