Look, The Fields Are White Unto Harvest

In John 4:35–38, Jesus said to look, the fields are white unto harvest, but what does that mean? Who are the laborers? Are the fields being white a good thing? How do we reap the white harvest? What is the white harvest we are supposed to reap? Does it matter if we reap this white harvest or not? How important is the white harvest? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he explains Jesus’ analogy in his message, Look, The Fields Are White Unto Harvest.

Look, The Fields Are White Unto Harvest

Where Do We Find This Verse?

35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest. 36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”

John 4:35–38

What is the White Harvest, and Who are the Laborers?

The harvest is the souls of the world, and the laborers are the Church. This is the call of John 4:35-38. We are to be the laborers in His field so that souls might be harvested. Paul uses this same analogy when explaining that it doesn’t matter who planted the seed or who watered the seed; it only matters that the seed is nourished so that it might grow and be harvested.

8 He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:8–9

Why is This White Harvest Important?

We are all called to do the will of God the Father. In fact, Jesus said that it was so important, that unless you do the will of the Father, then you have no salvation, even if you believe.

21 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Matthew 7:21-23

What is the Will of the Father?

There’s a reason that Jesus said to look because the fields are white unto harvest. He didn’t just bring our attention to the fields being white unto harvest; no, He was bringing our attention to the desire of the Father. The fields are white unto harvest; you don’t even have to sow the field or even work it, because He (Jesus) did that. He paid the price, and in doing so, He did all the heavy labor. All we have to do is harvest the field of souls by telling them of the good news of Christ Jesus. Why? Because God doesn’t want any of His creation to be destroyed, but He wants them all to have eternal life. This is why He has called us all to be laborers in His field.

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one dayThe Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

2 Peter 3:8-10

11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

John 3:16-18

So, once more, I will repeat. Look, the fields are white unto harvest. The souls are ready to hear the good news of Christ Jesus. We don’t have much longer on this earth to win souls for Christ. We don’t have much longer to harvest the white fields before us. It’s time to be the laborers that Christ has called us to be. It’s time to win souls for Christ.
