Everything we do in the work of the Lord is to be done by faith. We need the confidence and assurance that faith gives to us so that we never allow our mind to imagine that our labor is in vain. No, it pays to obey God and do the work nof the Lord. We should not think for one moment that our work is finished here and just sit around waiting for Jesus to come for us. His coming for us should be a catalyst to our diligent labor not a cop out. We have assurances that:
1. There is a harvest in the nations because He will shake ALL nations and the desire of all nations (Jesus) shall come.
Haggai 2:6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; 7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts.
2. The Earth will yield its fruit of precious souls.
James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
3. The salvation God sent to the Gentiles, they will receive.
Acts 28:28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.
