HOW CAN I KNOW MY HARVESTFIELD?
“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.”
Soul winning is otherwise called harvest in scriptures. Our Lord Jesus demands that we set our eyes on the fields. Many believers are not seeing the ripe harvestfields because they are not lifting up their eyes. The first instruction is that we lift up our eyes and look on. When you lift up your eyes, you will see what Christ wants you to see: abundance of opportunities. Conversely, when you look down, you will be distracted from seeing the ready fruits for harvest. Secondly, when you lift up your eyes, you will always end up discerning spiritually the appropriate field God has prepared for you.
Understand that the harvestfield is in plural and not in singular. There is the global harvest field, corporate Harvestfield’ and personal harvest field. Our global harvestfield covers over 6 billion unbelievers on earth (inclusive of ordinary church goers). A believer or a Christian is one who has received the seed of Jesus Christ and in whom Christ lives in his or her spirit. (1 Peter 1:23; John 3:3-6). Anyone outside this class is a potential fruit for harvest.
Our harvestfield is V-shaped. It starts from a narrow prism and expands to the uttermost part of the world. Jesus defined our harvestfield in Acts 1:8 as our Jerusalem (family and locality), Judea (same State), Samaria (same Nation) and the uttermost part of the earth (Continental and intercontinental).
May the Lord open your eyes of understanding each day to your portion of the Harvestfield in Jesus mighty name.
