6. Harvest of Dissension

By John Thiel, Facing Last Day Perils Conference, Study 6, mp3

As we look at the harvest of this earth we see that whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. What is sown is also reaped. God does not arbitrarily deal with the wicked or with anybody that disobeys Him. It is the consequences of what we have been harboring in our mind, in our heart, that will finally punish us. We get to know God correctly when we study the sowing and the harvest correctly.

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Here is a challenging call. Who hath ears to hear let him hear. When is the harvest? Jesus said the harvest is the end of the world. What is he talking about?

Daniel 8 identifies the end of the world: Read the rest of this entry
