15Then another angel came from the Temple and shouted to the one sitting on the cloud, “Swing the sickle, for the time of harvest has come; the crop on earth is ripe.” 16So the one sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the whole earth was harvested. Revelation 14:15-16 (NLT)
We are living in harvest time and swinging the sickle is actually doing the harvesting. Our entire generation is the end time or harvest time generation.
The end time or harvest time is all about realizing and walking in the fullness of what Jesus accomplished for us in His crucifixion, death, resurrection and seating at the Father’s right hand.
Its being fully persuaded and living in our complete union with the Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
This greatest end time harvest is each and every one of us coming to the perfect knowledge of Christ and His finished work on the Cross – who He is to us, what He has done and completed for us, who we already are in Him, what we already have in Him and what we can do in Him.
Thank God He has appointed ministry gifts in the church for this very purpose of all of us growing up into our full stature in Christ. Ephesians 4:11-16.
Therefore swinging the sickle or fully participating in the harvest is about all of us finding out, standing and functioning in our place and position of calling and ministry in Christ.
