Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

The Harvest. Part-Two.

Human Souls.

Do you not know, that we are a commissioned people by Jesus to go out and harvest the souls God has chosen to be brought to Salvation?

It is our joy to share in the work of Jesus in gathering the sheaves over that of sitting in Church or other doing nothing, perhaps finding excuses within our callings to ignore the lost?

John 4:35,  Matthew 9:37-38,  Luke 10:2-3.

The Harvest. One.

Reaping and Threshing.

We all need food and the most staple food is carbohydrates, bread, noodles, pasta and rice? Humanity cannot live without them everyday and they have to be harvested on mass to keep the food chains demand.

Different parts of the world grow different grains, the west demands wheat and barley. While the Far-East rice. stalks of one kind or another have to be first mature to be reaped and in the case of dryness threshed.

Exodus 9:31-32, Leviticus 26:5, Proverbs 10:5, Isaiah 9:2, Matthew 9:37.
