The Witnesses and the Harvest

The Witnesses and the Harvest

Luke 10:1-12


We are in the days of harvest.

By this time three weeks from now I would like to announce the number of souls won to Jesus during this campaign.

I believe we could win scores, but it will take obedience to the command of Christ Jesus.

We will have to let Him send us forth into the World, just as He did back in Israel in olden times.

Let’s look at how He did it then.



A.            Twelve sent in Luke 9

1.             Jesus had sent the twelve out to the cities and towns where He Himself would go. 

2.             But in this grand preaching campaign, to cover all of Palestine, Jesus needed more to go.

B.            The twelve were not enough, because the time was so short.

C.            So Jesus sent seventy more in Luke 10 to reach more villages in the hills.


II.           THEIR WORK

A.            They went two-by-two to each town preaching, healing and telling that Jesus was coming.

B.            The work of these disciples

1.             For days in each place they witnessed

2.             They went preaching, winning, healing, and casting out devils.

3.             This helps to explain the enormous crowds that gatheblack to see and hear Jesus wherever He went.

a.              Luke 12:1     "an innumerable multitude of people."

b.              Luke 14:25     "a great multitude."

4.             This also explains how churches build and grow today.


III.        THE WORKERS (70)

A.            These workers were to be received into homes and fed and kept for Jesus' sake. 

B.            Their service earned them this honor.

C.            But who were these seventy?

1.             We do not know the name of one. 

2.             They were, we suppose, not very mature Christians, but rather earnest, new converts.

3.             They are called "lambs," not sheep,

4.             Sent out "among wolves." 



A.            So a new believer should at once become a soul winner.

1.             Notice that God holds the hearers of such a witness to solemn accounting.

B.            In the Great Commission in Mat 28:19-20 we are commanded to:

1.             Make new converts

2.             Baptize them and then

3.             Immediately teach "them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you."

C.            The soul-winning command of the Great Commission is to be given to every convert.

D.            And so the Lord Jesus sends these seventy lambs to witness for Him.



A.            To the Seventy Jesus said,

1.             “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest."

B.            When Christ had first sent the twelve, He told them the same thing almost word for word in Matthew 9:37

1.             “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

C.            And then again:  In John 4:35 at Sychar, speaking of another time and place, but again speaking of the harvest,

1.             "Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest."

2.             White refers to the tassels on the top of ripe grain.

a.              When millions of plants all have tassels the field takes on a look of "white."

b.              It means that the grain is ready to be harvested.

D.            For the one willing to go into the Harvest today

1.             The souls of many men, women and children are ready for harvest

2.             There will be many saved when they hear a witness

3.             Psalms 126:6  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves [with him].

4.             Note the sober purpose of the one going

5.             Then, notice his great joy for having gone.



A.            In every country God has a plenteous, white harvest waiting that truly is great.

B.            When He had only Elijah at Mount Carmel, Israel was backslidden, yet, a multitude could be brought to cry, "The Lord, he is God!"

C.            Look at Nineveh, so wicked it was on a collision course with destruction, (40 days)

a.              Yet God would bring thousands to repentance with a preacher,

b.              Even though God had a problem getting Jonah to go.

c.              (God has a hard time getting His children to work in the harvest.)

D.            In Samaria the fields were white and many could be won

a.              When a shabby woman discoveblack Christ at the well and

b.              Called her friends to come hear Him.

c.              Many were saved.(John 4:39-41)

E.             Even at wicked Jerusalem

a.              Where the multitudes cried out to have Jesus crucified,

b.              Where Judas betrayed Him,

c.              Where Peter denied Him and cursed and quit the ministry and

d.              Where the disciples all "forsook him and fled,"

e.              Yet a plenteous, truly great, white harvest waited.

f. Weeks later a few disciples prayed down the power of God, 

1)        There were three thousand at Pentecost who claimed Christ

2)        And joined with the Christians. (In Jerusalem!!!)



A.  The trouble is not with the harvest / but with the laborers.

1.             Not with the sinners / but with the saints.

2.             Not with the world / but with the church.

B.   Failures to reach people are not to be blamed then,

1.             On the times,

2.             On the conditions

3.             Or on the circumstances,

4.             But on the lack of Spirit-filled witnesses.

C.  It is not the hard heart of drunkards, of worldlings, or infidels,

1.             But the lukewarm heart of careless “Christians”

a.              That lets people go to Hell,

2.             And the cold heart of God's people

a.              That wastes the harvest.

D.  It is not the modernist who is unsaved and cannot have God's power,

1.             But born-again believers who are fearful and do not trust God for power,

2.             Members of fundamental, Bible believing churches, who have all the reasons to reap the harvest, but still refuse to go.



A.            We have the might of God with us,

1.             2 Co 10:4  The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

2.             Luke 12:4  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

3.             Luke 12:5  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

B.            We have the Word of God, -- "quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword"  (Heb 4:12).

1.             "Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?"  (Jer 23:29)

C.            We have the Grace of God, loving, seeking the lost, (2Pe 3:9).

1.             "Not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and faith"

D.            We have within us the Holy Spirit who "when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment" (John 16:8).

E.             And we have Prayer and a God who hears the prayer of faith, or the prayer in Jesus' name.



A.            You may be here without the Saviour

B.            You may never have been Baptized

C.            Or, you may never have lead a soul to the Saviour.

1.             Yes, the harvest is always - plenteous, - great, - white, so that we can win some,

2.             Let’s purpose in our hearts to be a Christian with a Work.

3.             Let God lead you to be a soul winner.
