Reaping Season!

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.  Psalm 126:5,6

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.  Galatians 6:9

 

It has been evident the past few weeks at our church that we have entered into a reaping season. ( a harvest of souls!) There have been many weeks of outreach, witnessing, inviting people to church, teaching Bible studies and prayer, and I believe God is honoring the effort that is going forth. Today was a day of great joy as Bhobhi(pronounced “Bobbie”) was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of her sins. Bhobhi is one of the ladies in the Bible study that I have been privileged to teach on Tuesday afternoons. I am so excited about what God is doing in her life! Since the beginning of the month we’ve been seeing an increase of new visitors coming through our doors, many seeking God in the altars and some of them being filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost. I give God all the glory and praise! We had a wonderful altar service today in children’s church too. Even though this is geared toward children, we have seen adults respond too and come forward and pray in the altar. One of the ladies from our church brought her mother with her today. Her mom understands some English, but speaks mostly in Spanish. At the close of the lesson in kid’s church she came forward and was praying. God really touched her, and she told her daughter later that she really felt the presence of God. At the same time, the granddaughter of this lady(her name is Sasha)was praying too. Sasha is only 5 or 6, and she has prayed up front before, but today there was a marked difference. It was beautiful and priceless to see this little girl with uplifted hands and tears streaming down her face as she worshipped God. She was very close to receiving the Holy Ghost, and I don’t think it will be long before God fills her to overflowing.

Below are some pictures from the baptism. I’m overjoyed and appreciative of what God is doing and am believing Him for even greater things. Thank you, Jesus!

  1. I am thrilled about this! I’ll be praying for continued “increase.” I’ve got a Bible study going (w/Bro. Leo) with a man named Harold. He was baptized 2 Sundays ago. He is proactive in that he calls to make sure we’re going to be there for the Bible study lesson (which we have on Tuesday nights). It’s neat to see a spirit like that!

    That’s neat about your Bible study, Tom. It’s always a good sign when the student calls you to make sure the Bible study is still taking place. It’s rewarding to be able to teach others God’s Word, isn’t it?

  2. Good morning. The final haevest is upon us and the angels rejoice ovr each name that’s recorded in heaven.

    As I was going through here, Revelations 14:14-18 came to mind. A sudden and all out harvest. This passage; I’ve heard these verses used to embrace a mid-tribulation rapture, but what came to mind here is the “all-out-effort” that’s portrayed in the passage.

    Time is indeed short. Thanks for an encouraging report. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    Hi Timbob. Yes, time is short, but thank God that His hand is stretched out still. I just want to be a part of what He is doing in these last days.

  3. Praise the Lord, the waters in our Baptistry have been still too long!! Thank you for this inspirational post, love to see how God is moving!

    Hi CM. We’re believing for more to be baptized soon too. It’s always exciting to see someone obey God by being baptized in that wonderful name of Jesus!
