OPEN HEAVENS FOR TEENS 7 MARCH 2020: DON’T LOSE THE HARVEST

OPEN HEAVENS FOR TEENS 7 MARCH 2020: DON’T LOSE THE HARVEST

MEMORISE: And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. Matthew 11:12
READ: JOHN 4:31-38
31. In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34. Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
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.
36. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

MESSAGE:

In receiving a harvest, time is of great essence. This is because there is a limit to which a ripe harvest can endure, ask the farmers.
When the harvest is ripe and you do not take it quickly, some could become overripe and spoilt, and in the process, become lost forever.
Some believers have become overripe and therefore unharvestible because we failed to harvest them at the right time.
You may have noticed some unbelievers make the conscious effort to become born again.
You may have seen them attend Church service once or twice, maybe they even tried to join the workforce or dress differently.
These kinds of people are the ones you must not procrastinate in bringing closer to God at all.
You must catch them while they are ripe before they become overripe.
The moment you notice their effort, follow them up strictly.
Ensure that you are able to answer all their questions and show them the way to live in Christ.
Most essential is that you invite them for prayer and Bible study meetings.
The devil can also see their efforts and he will waste no time in ensuring that they don’t become Christians, so why are you wasting time?
KEY POINT:
Always take note of already ripe harvests and pluck them before the devil spoils them.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
DUETERONOMY 3-4 ; MARK 11:20-33
HYMN 15
1. O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and
Human woes abound.
Let every Christian tongue
Proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!
Chorus:
The Comforter has come!
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s Promise giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!
2. The long, long night is past;
The morning breaks at last;
And hushed the dreadful wail
And fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills
The day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!
3. Lo, the great Kings of Kings,
With healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full
Deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells
The song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!
4. O boundless love divine!
How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell
The matchless grace divine-
That I, a child of hell,
Should in His image shine?
The Comforter has come!
