"Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh the harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white already unto harvest."
I had wondered about that verse in the past....why white? I grew up on a farm and a field ready for harvest was either green like soy beans, or gold like the top of the corn or a wheat field. I'd never seen a white field.
Then it hit me - COTTON! I was looking at cotton fields! All the cotton was ready for harvest! Of course cotton. The Middle East............Egyptian cotton.......middle east cotton.......of course! Jesus was referring to cotton fields, which are white when ready for harvest.
They are white.....ready for harvest. Are you ready to work the harvest? Jesus, Himself, has said the fields are white unto harvest. This is a given; we must expect a harvest and live as though it's imminent.
Are you ready?
