(Isaiah 65:18 NIV) and Jesus Christ our Lord says: “I do the will of him who sent me and finish his work. Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” (Joh 4:34-35 NIV) 

Our Lord and God Jesus Christ encourages us to be glad and rejoice in his holy works of creation. They are wonderful, plentiful and for us and our salvation. His work is in line with his heavenly Father’s mission and he has come not only to compliment it, but to finish this godly work most satisfactorily and perfectly. Finally he can say: “It is done. It is complete. It is finished.” Already the fields are ripe for harvest and the reapers are going out in his name to the ends of the world to gather in his harvest. Let us rejoice and be glad in the holy works of our God. He has begun the good work in you. He will finish it also. Amen, Amen + It shall be done, because he is faithful and carries out all his promises most praiseworthily.

We pray: Lord heavenly Father send out faithful workers into your harvest, who will do your will diligently according to your most holy will and for the benefit of many +

God’s Word forever shall abide, No thanks to foes, who fear it For God Himself fights by our side With weapons of the Spirit. Were they to take our house, Goods, honour, child or spouse, Though life be wrenched away, They cannot win the day.        The Kingdom’s ours forever!
