AMOS 9:13-15

SHALL OVERTAKE THE REAPER.—SO RAPIDLY WILL THE HARVEST FOLLOW THE PLOUGHING.

  • AMOS 9:13. BEHOLD THE DAYS COME — HERE WE HAVE ANOTHER PROMISE, LITERALLY TO BE UNDERSTOOD OF THE ABUNDANT PLENTY WHICH GOD WOULD BESTOW ON THE RETURNED CAPTIVES,
  • IT ALSO SPEAKS  OF THE ABUNDANT GRACE GIVEN AND BLESSINGS CONFERRED IN GOSPEL DAYS.
  • THAT THE PLOUGHMAN SHALL OVERTAKE THE REAPER — HE WHO BREAKS UP THE GROUND, AND PREPARES IT FOR THE SEED, SHALL BE READY TO TREAD ON THE HEELS OF THE REAPER;
  • THE REAPER SHALL HAVE A HARVEST SO LARGE, THAT BEFORE HE CAN GATHER IT ALL IN, IT SHALL BE TIME TO PLOUGH THE GROUND AGAIN
  • SO GREAT SHALL THEIR VINTAGE BE, THAT BEFORE THE TREADERS OF GRAPES CAN HAVE FINISHED THEIR WORK, THE SEEDSMAN SHALL BE SOWING HIS SEED AGAINST THE NEXT SEASON.
  • AND THE MOUNTAINS SHALL DROP SWEET WINE — THE VINEYARDS SHALL BE SO FRUITFUL, AND SHALL PRODUCE SUCH ABUNDANCE OF GRAPES, THAT WINE SHALL APPEAR TO BE AS PLENTIFUL AS IF IT RAN DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAINS.
  • THE HILLS SHALL FLOW WITH MILK SAYS JOEL
  • THE MEANING IS, THAT THEY SHOULD AFFORD SUCH PLENTY OF RICH FEEDING TO THE CATTLE, THAT THEY SHOULD IN CONSEQUENCE THEREOF GIVE A LARGE QUANTITY OF MILK.
  • WE MUST UNDERSTAND THIS AS GOSPEL BLESSINGS FOR US ALL
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT  PROPHETS, WERE FORSEEING THE DAYS OF THE GOSPEL OF GRACE
  • 9:11-15 CHRIST DIED TO GATHER TOGETHER THE CHILDREN OF GOD THAT WERE SCATTERED ABROAD,
  • THOSE WHO WERE CALLED BY HIS NAME. EZE 36:24-38
  • SAYS THE LORD , WHO CAN DO IT, WHO HAS DETERMINED TO DO IT,
  • THE POWER OF WHOSE GRACE IS ENGAGED FOR DOING IT.
  • 34:25-31 LET US CONTINUE EARNEST IN PRAYER FOR THE FULFILMENT OF THESE PROPHECIES, IN THE PEACE, PURITY, AND THE BEAUTY OF THE CHURCH
  • GOD IS MARVELLOUSLY PRESERVING US  HIS ELECT IN THESE   FEARFULLY CONFUSING  AND  WICKED DAYS.
  • WHEN ALL SEEMS DESPERATE, HE IS  WONDERFULLY REVIVING HIS CHURCH.
  • HE BLESSES US  WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN CHRIST JESUS.
  •  NOT ONE GOOD THING PROMISED SHALL REMAIN UNFULFILLED IN THIS CONVENTION
  • BEHOLD THE DAYS ARE COMING – THE DAY OF THE LORD IS COMING  FOR HIS REWARD
  • ALSO LEV 26 :1-13 THIS IS THE ABUNDANCE OF GIFTS OF GRACE. JOHN 10:10
  • “THE PLOWMAN,” WHO BREAKS UP THE FALLOW GROUND, “SHALL OVERTAKE,” OR “THRONG, THE REAPER.
  • THE “PLOWMAN” MIGHT “THRONG,” OR “JOIN ON TO THE REAPER,” EITHER FOLLOWING UPON HIM, OR BEING FOLLOWED BY HIM;
  • SO VAST WOULD BE THE SOIL TO BE CULTIVATED, SO BEYOND ALL THE POWERS OF THE CULTIVATOR,
  • AND YET SO RAPID AND UNCEASING THE GROWTH, THAT SEED-TIME AND HARVEST WOULD BE BUT ONE
  • . SO OUR LORD SAYS, “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” JOHN 4:35.
  • “FOUR MONTHS” ORDINARILY INTERVENED BETWEEN SEED-TIME AND HARVEST. AMONG THESE SAMARITANS, SEED-TIME AND HARVEST WERE ONE.
  • THEY HAD NOT, LIKE THE JEWS, HAD TEACHERS FROM GOD; YET, AS SOON AS OUR LORD TAUGHT THEM, THEY BELIEVED.
  • HE FORETELLS, NOT THE FULLNESS ONLY OF GOD’S GIFTS, BUT THEIR UNBROKEN CONTINUANCE.
  •  AND THEY SHALL NOT FOLLOW ONLY ON ONE ANOTHER, BUT SHALL ALL GO ON TOGETHER IN ONE PERPETUAL ROUND OF TOIL AND FRUITFULNESS.
  • THERE SHALL BE ONE UNCEASING INPOURING OF RICHES; NO BREAK IN THE HEAVENLY  BLESSINGS
  • LABOR SHALL YIELD FRUIT; THE HARVEST SHALL  ENCOURAGE FRESH LABOR.
  • SUCH IS THE CHARACTER OF THE TOILS OF THE GOSPEL.
  • ALL THE WORKS OF GRACE GO ON IN HARMONY TOGETHER; EACH HELPS ON THE OTHER;
  • IN ONE, THE FALLOW-GROUND OF THE HEART IS BROKEN UP;
  • IN ANOTHER, SEED IS SOWN
  • ,IN ANOTHER IS THE BEGINNING OF A HOLY CONVERSATION;
  • IN ANOTHER, IS THE FULL RICHNESS OF THE RIPENED FRUIT, IN ADVANCED HOLINESS AND MINISTRY
  • AND SO, ALSO, OF THE MINISTERS OF CHRIST, CALLED INTO DIFFERENT OFFICES, PROPHETS, APOSTLES TEACHERS ,AND EVANGELISTS  SHALL WORK TOGETHER AS  ONE;
  • ALL SHALL REJOICE TOGETHER IN THAT SEED WHICH IS CHRIST.
  • . ALL SHOULD BE OBEDIENT TO GOD:
  • ALL, FULL OF THE GRACES AND GIFTS OF GOD. WHAT WAS EXALTED, LIKE THE APOSTLES SHOULD BE EXALTED NOT FOR ITSELF,
  • BUT IN ORDER TO POUR OUT THE STREAMS OF LIFE-GIVING DOCTRINE AND TRUTH, WHICH WOULD REFRESH AND GLADDEN THE FAITHFUL.
  • EVERYTHING, HERETOFORE BARREN AND UNFRUITFUL, SHOULD OVERFLOW WITH SPIRITUAL BLESSING. ZECH 8:12  EPESIANS 4 5
  • ANOINTING SERVICE ISAIAH 65.24-
