END-TIME SOWERS

The Lord is going to have a great host of willing sowers in the last days!

“And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him. Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matthew 25:20-23).

I am going to prove to you that the true Church of Jesus Christ will not go out with a whimper! It will not be crushed or crippled by the tide of wickedness. It will not be weak, confused, or beaten down by demonic powers. Never! This parable proves that God will have a fruitful, glorious harvest at the end. Two out of three of the Lord’s servants will come to the Judgment loaded with fruit and full joy—happy in a great harvest. They will not be losing ground or barely making it. Instead, they will say, “I have gained! What God gave me has doubled.” They will be “good and faithful,” not backslidden or dead. They will not be cast down, depressed, or dejected, but rather, they will have the joy of the Lord.

Jesus is “the man traveling into a far country” (see Matthew 25:14) who will “after a long time” (see Matthew 25:19) return and call into account His servants. We are those servants, “His own,” and the talents represent our measure of grace and revelation of Jesus. We are commanded to go out and sow this revelation. Some have a greater revelation of Jesus than others—but all must sow.
