ONE PLANTS ANOTHER REAPS, THE HARVEST BELONGS TO THE LORD  2/20/09

 

Today I was thinking about reading the following scripture and heard the Lord say the following to me in regards to the harvest.

 

HEARD:  Amazing.  Network.  Thatís a pretty easy way of doing things. 

 

John 4:37-38 NKJV

For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'  I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."

 

1 Cor 3:5-8 NKJV

Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters , but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

 

SETTLED ACCOUNTS

 

Matt 25:19-21 AMP

Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.  20 And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more.  21 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.

 

NT:4868

NT:4868 sunairo (soon-ah'-ee-ro); from NT:4862 and NT:142; to make up together, i.e. (figuratively) to compute (an account):

KJV - reckon, take.

 

NT:3056

NT:3056 logos (log'-os); from NT:3004; something said (including the thought); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension, a computation; specifically (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ):

 

KJV - account, cause, communication, concerning, doctrine, fame, have to do, intent, matter, mouth, preaching, question, reason, reckon, remove, say (-ing), shew, speaker, speech, talk, thing, none of these things move me, tidings, treatise, utterance, word, work.

 

WORD TO PONDER:  THE LORD OF THE HARVEST

The networking to produce My harvest is so easy when each do their part.  I give the seed and water of My Word to those who are willing to labor.  To one, he will plant a seed, and another enters into that labor to water the seed.  These 2 are one team in these labors, even if miles and ages apart.  

 

When I give My Word, it shall not return to Me void, but accomplish what I please and prosper where it was sent.  The harvest belongs to Me for I AM the Lord of the harvest and give both growth and increase.  When I return, I will tally and compute each manís labor, according to our Words and what was spoken.   Each man will receive a reward for His own labor. 

 

Matt 9:37-38 NKJV

Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.  Therefore pray the Lord  of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." 

 

John 4:37-38 NKJV

For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'  I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."

 

Isa 55:8-11  NKJV

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts,  Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD.   9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth,  So are My ways higher than your ways,  And My thoughts than your thoughts.     10 "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,  And do not return there,  But water the earth,  And make it bring forth and bud,  That it may give seed to the sower   And bread to the eater,   11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;  It shall not return to Me void,  But it shall accomplish what I please,  And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
