“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

"Do you not say, 'There are still four months and then comes a harvest'? Behold I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" John 4:35

Labour Crisis in the Kingdom
There is a major crisis in terms of the Kingdom workforce. The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. The problem is not with the harvest, but with the harvesters. Although this was said 2000 years ago, it is still true, and resonates today. When we say labourers, we talk about people who are preaching the word, financing that work, and praying about it. In other words: the preachers, the financers, and the groaners.

God has not positioned you in New Wine for yourself (although you will enjoy some benefits), but there are destinies tied to you, that must come to Jesus, and He is looking to you to bring them in, because God will not do anything without a man on earth. God needs you to bring them into the kingdom!

Beholding the Harvest
Beholding the harvest is about a global mandate. When Jesus came and rose again, He gave us what is called a ‘Global Mandate’. Mark 16:15, tells us: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”. You must remember you are not called to save people; Jesus has already done that. Man cannot even save himself. You are called to spread the good news. You are called to go and preach the gospel. Communicating the message of the gospel is our responsibility.

What Do You See?
John 4:27-35 recounts the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman. The apostles and leaders saw her as a prostitute, but Jesus saw her as harvest. The woman that society and the Pharisees saw as a prostitute and a liability, was able to go to the cities, tell them about Jesus, and bring them to the village to receive Christ. The things that the apostles couldn’t do, she did. She was a great evangelist, that satan had made to be a slave; a prostitute; someone that would be rejected in society. Jesus saw beyond the prostitute, and saw that there was something inside of her, that the enemy was afraid of. It was something that even the apostles couldn’t see.

We do the same; we see drug addicts, and we run away from them, but there is harvest all around; we just need to open our eyes. When we are on the streets, we often see the lost as vagabonds; but if we saw them with the eyes of Jesus, we would see that they are harvest. This is the reason why Jesus came; why He saved us. The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Why can’t we, who Jesus has saved, recognise this bountiful harvest? This is because we see problems instead of a harvest. We are the labourers, but we must recognise the harvest, in order to bring them into the kingdom.
