WHAT DO YOU SEE?

what do you seeJohn 4:35 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.

 

Jesus said he would make us fishers of men Matthew 4:19; Mark 1:17. Soul winners are made not born. In John 4:35  Jesus gave us a soul-winning secret. The starting point of evangelism is finding people. We must lift our eyes up to see what God sees John 4:35. In the context of John 4 Jesus saw the harvest of the Samaritan woman while the disciples saw and focused only on the natural. They didn’t see the harvest right in front of them.

 

 

Jesus also said the field is the world Matthew 13:38. Don’t think far far away world but your world. The place where your life intersects with lost people. There are people in our world ready to receive. What do you see?

 

I personally long to see Jesus come for His Church in the Rapture and then come with His saints in His Return. I think surely He must come, and the signs of His return are on every hand. There are  wars and rumors of war, nation rising against nation, kingdom against kingdom, earthquakes in divers places, and pestilences (or incurable diseases Matthew 24:3-8. There are false teachers and people with itching ears; the rise of seducing spirits, evil men and seducers; a falling away from the faith; and a distress among the nations. All through the years devout Christians have looked forward to the time when the Lord Himself (not a representative) shall come. Christians who have been persecuted and Christians in troubling situations have cried for it and said, “Even so come Lord Jesus, come.

 

Why doesn’t He come? As the mockers and scoffers say where is the sign of His coming… all things continue as they were from the beginning of the Creation (2 Peter 3:1-3), thank God the Bible tells us in 2 Peter 3:9, “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.” The explanation for the delay about the Savior’s return is given: Jesus does not come simply because God wants others to be saved. He longs for every sinner to come to salvation and is not willing that any should perish into eternal doom and damnation. Jesus came not to condemn sinners but that the world would be saved through Him (John 3:17). Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners and God is longsuffering, patient toward their evil, to give time for repentance that leads to salvation.
