End Time Harvest

For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.  
(Zechariah 8:12)

To those who catch the vision of God and fulfill the work and will of God; the remnant, there are promises of abundant harvest.

God will turn the wilderness into fertile fields:

He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may...sow the fields and plant the vineyards which may yield fruits of increase. (Psalms 107:35-37)

God will even bring harvest to the least fruitful places:

There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth. (Psalms 72:16)

Age is no barrier to His plan:

They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; (Psalms 92:14)

You may go forth weeping in travail to birth God's vision, but...

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. (Psalms 126:5-6)

We cannot comprehend the abundance of this end-time harvest:  

Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. (Haggai 2:19)

God speaks of a harvest so great that it is continuous:  

Behold the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed. (Amos 9:13)

You will not even finish threshing out the harvest until the next harvest is upon you.

This is why the need for laborers is so urgent. The plowman is overtaking the reaper. The vision of the harvest is before you.

Claim the promise of abundant harvest.
Claim the heathen for your inheritance.
The fields of the world are before you. Lift up your eyes and look.

There will come that day of final harvest when God commands His angels:

The time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. (Revelation 14:15)

From all over this world the procession will come.

From Africa, Australia, Asia, North and South America, Europe, and the Islands of the Sea... Harvesters streaming into the throne room of God.

Men and women who have made the vision a reality...Those who lived with the vision as central to their reason for being... Those who died embracing its promises.

God will have a remnant of people who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.  And they bring with them the sheaves from the harvest of the earth:

After this I beheld, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb...and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshiped God.  Saying, Amen: Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be unto our God forever and ever. Amen.           (Revelation 7:9-12)
