The “Harvest” is at the END of the Season

I have always been one of those rare kinds of people that fully believes that the words and parables of Jesus in The New Testament give full knowledge and understanding of everything we need to know…if only, one has ears to hear. “Ears to hear” meaning a number of things, from overcoming one’s own pride and puffed up sense of knowledge to quite simply just lacking the proper context to understand a thing fully because the thing was said in a completely different world and time frame than what one grew up in.

We have an issue of the latter here.  Over and over again Jesus stresses that his parables are meant for those with “ears to hear, and eyes to see” those looking through the lens of faith and receiving the understanding that only The Holy Spirit can give.  For me personally, Jesus’ words have always been the last word on any subject, including disproving the pre-tribulation rapture theory.  I grew up in a southern baptist church that fully believes this fallacy and it was ingratiated into me from a very young age.  When I became an adult however and began to really study the scriptures for myself, the rapture fallacy was the most easily disproved and the first mainstream institutional “church” deception that I was freed from and many more deceptions fell away in increasing speed after that…my hope is that it will do the same for you!

Let me show you some parables, all from the lips of Jesus.  (My in-verse comments are blue)

Matthew 13:10-17

“And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

(he is speaking here of faith, faith is required to understand these parables…for whosoever exercises faith to him shall be given more faith and in abundance but whosoever does not exercise faith from him shall be taken even the gift of faith that God gave to him in the first place…)

Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith:

By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; (they are not exercising faith…)

Lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; And to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”

wheattares

Matthew 13:24-30

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying:

The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him:

Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this.

The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers:

Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

Matthew 13:34-43

“All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables;

I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house:

And his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

He answered and said unto them:

-He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man

-The field is the world

-The good seed are the children of the kingdom

-The tares are the children of the wicked one and the enemy that sowed them is the devil

-The harvest is the end of the world

-The reapers are the angels.

As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

And the Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

He who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

And there is your proof, The Harvest is: The End Of The World.   And there is only ONE harvest of wheat in a season, any average person of Jesus’ day would have understood this!

You DO NOT, let me repeat, YOU DO NOT harvest some wheat part-way through the season and then come back at the end of the season and harvest the rest of it, that would be retarded🙄

No, you wait until the kernels are fully ripe and you harvest it ALL at one time!  And at that same time you tear out the weeds (tares) and burn them…that is how it works.

This would have been plain and simple common sense to the majority of the people throughout the history of the world from the time that this parable was first uttered.  Most of whom who grew their own food year after year after year after year for nearly two thousand years. This is why I say time and again that our main interface for developing proper spiritual understanding is through “tending and keeping the garden” which is the FIRST commandment of the WHOLE Bible!

Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Joel 3:13

Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Joel 3:13

Let me continue:

Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  (which sounds an awful lot like 1 Thessalonians 4:16, the “pet verse” of the rapture people)

Immediately AFTER the tribulation…well, you really can’t much clearer than that…Jesus HIMSELF said that he would come AFTER the tribulation and AT THAT SAME TIME his angels will gather his elect.

Plain as day, right there, read it again if you have to.

So it seems, that not only will there be angels gathering the children of the devil (the tares) to be burned but there will also be angels gathering his children and this ALL occurs at the END of the world.   The wheat and tares grow TOGETHER until THE HARVEST (which is the end of the world).

And he will say to the reapers, which are the angels, gather FIRST the tares…

Matthew 24:32-42

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe (Noah) entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”

When you plant a crop, you usually know the season in which it will be harvested but you can never know the specific day or hour of the harvest, that’s just simply impossible.  And by looking at the crop (represented here by the fig tree) you can have some idea of where you are in the growing season..is it still early spring? summertime? late fall?

By looking at the maturity of the crop you can judge the season, the generation that sees “the crop” reach full maturity shall witness the harvest (the end of the world), again that is just plain common sense.  But just as the harvest of the crop can be early or late in the season dependent upon the conditions in which it was grown (ie. The Parable of The Sower) so to is the “end of the world” more a fluid thing that cannot be pinned down to a specific date or hour because ONLY God the Father in Heaven knows when his specific expectations, known only to himself, have been met and when to declare the crop mature and ready to be harvested.

But Jesus here, gives us a hint, he takes us back to Noah and the flood. The atmosphere of that time period in which people were so spiritually and morally debased, caring only for the things of this present physical world, that they could not hear Noah’s warning them of the flood to come “..by hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand..” Caring only for what tasty thing they might eat or drink next, at a party or a club having specially selected the clothing to look as trendy or fashionable as possible, getting drunk and gossiping, caring only for frivolous things like which celebrity has married whom and who has divorced whom and who is da baby daddy? etc. etc. etc. 🙄

Yeah, sounds all too familiar does it not?

And they knew not that it was the end of “their world” until the flood came and took them all away!

What? WHOA! Wait a minute, let’s back up right there, let’s take a look at that verse again:

“And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

WHO did the flood take away?  The evil people!  And so shall ALSO the coming of the Son of man be.

“Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”

The one taken is the TARE.  Let me repeat that just for effect:

The one TAKEN is the TARE.

And he will say to the reapers, which are the angels, gather FIRST the tares…

And the modern harlot “church” with it’s pre-tribulation rapture fallacy has duped millions of professing “christians” into hoping they are taken out of this world FIRST…which, if that happened, would make them a tare!

So, here we have millions of christians (so-called) hoping and praying and wishing to a be a tare!

WOW just WOW, the deception involved here would be amazing if it weren’t for the twisted perverseness of it all.

Look, I personally do not care what you believe, living in a fallacy only hurts the believer.  But, after reading ALL of this, if you still wish to persist in your pre-tribulation rapture fallacy then, by all means, continue…you’ll just end up exactly where you belong. 😀

5 thoughts on “The “Harvest” is at the END of the Season

  1. I won’t go here, yet. I can’t. You left off Revelation, and as far as I can tell, there are saints living in Heaven BEFORE Messiah comes back – chapter 7, verses 9 to the end.

    Further, when Christ comes at the end, it is to reign here with the saints, in the New Jerusalem on the New Earth. And yet He says that He has gone to prepare a place for us, and will come back to take us there. If we’re staying here to the end, there would be no need for the place He’s gone to prepare there.

    Just a few contradictory scriptures that I can’t dismiss. That’s not to say that I won’t have to look at them differently after Tishri is passed… but until then, I have complete faith in the promise of 1 Corinthians 15 until there is no time left to hope.

  2. Annamatrix, I don’t go into Revelation because I am simply sticking to the words of Jesus in this post, he speaks things simply so that even children may understand.

    Revelation is so multi-layered and, because of the comic bookish nature of the end times mind control propaganda of mainstream institutionalized churchianity, most people just read into the text whatever they have been told that it means rather than letting the text speak for itself. While much of Revelation is literal, much of it is also highly symbolic with multi-layers of meaning that I don’t even pretend to possess the skill to tackle lol. However, I really do believe that Jesus’ words are more than sufficient to convey everything that we need to know, he is our Lord and Savior after all…the author and finisher of our faith.

    Concerning the “go to prepare a place for you” statement, I take it as a reference to the jewish wedding tradition where the man and woman are betrothed and then the man goes to build a house and then comes back for his bride…in a way speaking of his love for the apostles whom he spoke these words to right before he was arrested and crucified (John 14), assuring them that he would return just as assuredly as a man will return for his bride. But when Jesus returns he WILL be bringing The Kingdom Of God with him and it will be set up upon the earth so that where he is, we may be also.

    As for 1 Corinthians 15, I am in no way negating that we will be changed from corruptible to incorruptible bodies, some people refer to this as our spirit bodies or light bodies – our soul’s true form, which will happen when Jesus returns after the tribulation. Before the rapture people made a mess of things this was traditionally referred to as “the transfiguration” and it happens at the end of the world. The verses of Matthew 24:30-31 align quite nicely with the last few verses of 1 Corinthians 15..both have trumpets blowing and the elect being collected.

    Jesus’ words were quite clear, the wheat and tares grow together until the harvest which is the end of the world…and then the tares are removed first..and the elect are collected together and The Kingdom of God reigns on earth.

    I am certain that we will be here for ALL of the tribulation, but the precedence set by Noah and set by the Israelites in Egypt and many other examples is that God will protect us on this earth as we go THROUGH it, not escape it. We’re not meant to escape the troubles but to go through them as witnesses of what he is doing and why…and I think our main means of protection lies in “Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” I believe that the more we can cut the strings that bind us to Mystery Babylon The Harlot the more success we will have in living through to the end of the tribulation…because she’s a gonna fall and all who depend upon her will fall with her…

  3. Absolutely at the end. I don’t even refer to the event as the rapture, but the harvest. Drives any one I talk too berserk that I don’t believe modern day teaching of the church. I decided into my own study many years ago trying to find truth. Took some time to get out of my own way and hear Jesus’s words. Matthew 24. My very own solid point to. Cause Jesus said so. I always refer to his words for my belief. If I don’t believe him, what good is he to me as a savior? For a chuckle though the way you posted about harvesting twice being retarded. And the point you made about millions praying to go first. LOL couldn’t have said it better myself. Love you!
