SICKLE OF HARVEST AND JUDGMENT

Sunday, June 7, 2020

Pastor Carolyn Sissom

 

God will never place more on us than Jesus can handle; but it does seem that Satan is doing his best to wear out the saints of the most High. 

 

Dan 7:25 - And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws:

 

We have been drug through the Mueller Investigation, Kavanaugh trial, impeachment, COVID 19 and now this horrible lawlessness of rioting, killing, burning and stealing.

 

Bet Amante wrote an excellent Op-Ed describing the tribulation the nation has been through because we elected a President who holds up “Christ, “We the People,” and our constitution over the Dragon and the One World Order.  The sad truth is if the rioting is not able to overthrow this President, they will do worse between now and the election.  But I believe the Lord God will intervene because I am now persuaded, we are at the beginning of the Harvest of the earth.  I am also of the persuasion that the judgment (separation of the tares) will happen simultaneously with the Harvest of the wheat.   

 

Jesus was speaking to his apostles in Luke 17:22-37 about the Kingdom of God, the harvest and his return to earth.  

 

Luke 17: 24-29:  For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day.  But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.  As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: “They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.  Likewise, as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

 

In the days of Noah, The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence (Gen. 6:11)… Vs. 13: God said to Noah,The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth…But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.

 

 Luke 17: 30: Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

 

The principle of lawlessness, wickedness, and violence is significant according to the statement of Jesus in Matthew 24: 36-43 and Luke 17: 24-39.  We are now living in the same kind of day that Noah and Lot lived in. 

 

1.       The wickedness of man is great (multiplying) in the earth.

2.      Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart is only evil continually.

3.      God has purposed to destroy (wipe off, blot out) the wicked.

4.      The earth is filled with violence.

5.      All flesh except consecrated Christians have corrupted the way of God upon the earth.

 

Noah ushered in a new age.  He found Grace.  Methuselah’s life overlapped that of Adam by 243 years, thus forming a connecting link between the Garden of Eden and the post-flood world.  Methuselah’s life ended an age and Noah ushered in a new age.

 

Jesus Christ ushered in a new age.  It is worthy to note that the word used for the world in the parable of the tares is “aion” or “age.”  N.K.J.V. and other versions translate it to “age.”  The word used for the world system is kosmos.    

 

 

Matthew 13:37-43: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.  “The field is the world (kosmos), the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

 

This is the parable of the wheat and tares.  “The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will uproot everything out of his kingdom.  All the lawless ones and everything that causes sin will be removed.  They will throw the tares into the fiery furnace, where they will experience great sorrow, pain and anguish.  Then the godly ones will shine like the brightness of the sun in their Father’s kingdom realm.” (Matt. 13: 41-43 P.T).

 

Because of the dream I had about the large olive trees in a very large field, I am considering we are coming into the early stages of the Harvest.  Both large, ripe fruit and plastic dolls sealed in plastic bags (unchristian hearts)  were growing on the same tree.  The large olive trees represented anointed churches and/or ministries.  I sent the servant (angel) of the field to get a large ladder so I could climb into the trees and gather the harvest.  The angel picked the plastic doll sealed in plastic first; but I was holding one of the large fruits in my hand.  End of dream.  The angel gathers in the harvest, not me. 

 

We cry out for the harvest; but we have not considered that at the time of the harvest is also the time of the judgment of the wicked.  I have had my eyes on the harvest thinking all the seed we have sown will save many who are lost.  That is true; but many will also be judged by the fire of God.

 

When Jesus spoke to the apostles about the Harvest, they knew the word of God and would have been familiar with Joel’s prophecy of God’s sickle as a metaphor of judgment to harvest the nations.   

 

 

Joel 3: 12-14: Let the nations be wakened, and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
For there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.

Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.
Come, go down;
For the winepress is full,
The vats overflow—
For their wickedness is great.”

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of the L
ORD is near in the valley of decision.

 

 

Rev. 14-18: I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.  Another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, thrust in your sickle, and reap: for the time is come for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.  And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. Another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.  Another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

 

Christians you and I must not come under fear for if we lose our salt, then there is no one to help these people.  We have to become the light on a hill.  Where will these people go to find the Lord if the Church does not lead them to Jesus Christ?

 

2 Samuel 22:3: The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.

 

The Lord has made us many promises of his clear and distinct separation between the righteous, wicked and violent ones.

 

Psa. 11:5:  The LORD tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates
.

 

Psa. 55:9: Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues,
For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

 

Psa. 58:2: In your heart you work wickedness;
You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth
.

 

Psa. 73:6:  Pride serves as their necklace;

Violence covers them like a garment.

 

Pro 4:17:  For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And drink the wine of violence
.

 

Pro. 10:6:  Blessings are on the head of the righteous,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked
.

 

Pro. 10:11 - The mouth of the righteous is a well of life,
But violence covers the mouth of the wicked.

 

Pro.13:2:  A man shall eat well by the fruit of his mouth,
But the soul of the unfaithful feeds on violence
.

 

I am giving you a lot of scripture today.  I do not apologize.  We are in warfare with Satan for our nation.  We are not against people. No one in this congregation has a racists bone in their body.  We are in a battle against violence, wickedness, lawlessness, and Jezebel usurping the government of God to worship Baal. 

 

We need the spirit of Elijah to arise and call down fire on the altars of the prophets of Baal.  The God that answers by fire, let him be God.  The fires you see burning in our streets are altars to Baal, god of this world, the weather god, and the god of sexual perversion.  Elijah baptized the altar with water, spirit and fire.  1 Kings 18: 36-46, fire and rain came from heaven.  At the time of the evening sacrifice the (end of the age), the spirit of Elijah will be raised up. 

 

The Lord He is God!  He has not lost control of the earth.  However, it appears we may be coming to the end of an age.

“Let’s Wake up

Scare people with a virus.
Place them in quarantine.
Count the numbers of any sickness and death,
then announce it every second of every day in every news headline.
Close all businesses. 40,000,000 out of jobs.
Peak unemployment.
Remove entertainment: parks, gyms, bars, restaurants, sports.
No dating.
No touching.
Mask people.
Dehumanize them.
Close Temples and Worship Centers.
Create a vacuum.
Let depression and anxiety and desperation set in.

Then... ignite hatred and civil war. Promote Civil unrest.
Empty the prisons because of the virus and fill the streets with criminals.
Send in Antifa to vandalize property as if they are freedom fighters.
Undermine the law.
Loot. Attack law enforcement, but tell government to order a stand-down.

We are all being baited by adversarial governments who want to destroy America - China, Iran, Russia. Have the Far Left abuse the racial wars to fuel the fires. And, in an election year, have Democrats blame all of it on the President.

Their strategy: Can’t take America in a war, then destroy it from within.

We are being conditioned, manipulated, and programmed by multiple agendas as never before time to DO OUR OWN RESEARCH and MAKE UP OUR OWN MINDS rather than eating everything being spoon-fed to us!

These are the strategies of the forces of darkness and we need to rise up fearless, the Captain of the Hosts of Heavens Armies is with us.” ( I did not write this- author unknown)
