The Words of Jesus: “The Harvest is RIPE NOW” – 4 months before ‘The Harvest’

Jesus - End-time Harvest of Souls is RIPE NOW
Jesus made a statement the 4th chapter of the Gospel of John after meeting with the Samaritan woman by the well. His disciples were wanting him to eat and Jesus said his food is to do the will of His Father. Then, He just offered up this statement below, where Jesus tells them the Harvest fields are ripe NOW, not four months in the future.
When is the 1st Ripe harvest – the Barley – Harvested? The Levitical 23 “Feast of 1st Fruits” for the Mosaic Covenant is observed on Nisan 16 – or roughly the same time the ‘New Covenant’ Christians celebrate “Resurrection Sunday” – where Paul tells us that Jesus was the 1st Fruits of the dead:
1st Corinthians 15: ²⁰ Christ has been raised from the dead [On Resurrection Sunday], the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
See the statement by Jesus speaking about when the Harvest is to truly begin:
John 4: ³⁵ Don’t you [the Jews] have a saying, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’?
Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white [or ripe] for harvest.³⁶ Already, the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life [John 15:16], so that sower [Jesus] and reaper [harvest workers] 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.
Is it possible that Jesus is giving us a clue to His Father’s plan for the End-Time Harvest?
According to the words of Jesus – the Harvest of souls at the ‘End of the Age’ is four months BEFORE the Levitical 23 harvest cycle begins on Nisan 16 or April 17th, 2022.
Subtracting four-months brings us to Tebet 16 on the Hebrew Calendar, which is December 20th – which is last day of the Fall or using the Gregorian Calendar – Friday, December 17, 2021
Recall the words of Jesus about the winter-time:
Matthew 24: ²⁰Pray that your flight may not be in winter [before Dec 21st] or on a Sabbath.
Since Jesus made this obscure statement while He was presenting Himself to the “Samaritan Woman” – it would appear He is pointing to the end-time harvest of souls starting with non-Jews – the Samaritans who appear to be a picture of the church. We learn that Jesus meets the “woman” at the well at the 6th hour – which equates to noon. We know about noon time – since Amos 8 says that the LORD will cause the sun to go dark at noon!
Amos 8 Speaks of God’s Plan to collect the same “ripened harvest” into a basket for His Judgment comes:
Amos 8: This is what the Sovereign Lord showed me: a basket of ripe fruit.² “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. “A basket of ripe fruit,” I answered. Then the Lord said to me, “The time is ripe for my people Israel [Christians]; I will spare them no longer. ³ “In that day,” declares the Sovereign Lord, “the songs in the temple [& churches] will turn to wailing. Many, many bodies flung everywhere! Silence!”
⁹ “And on that day,” declares the Lord God, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight. [Total Earth Eclipse – the Earth is covered in a shadow of debris] ¹⁰ I will turn your feasts into mourning and all your songs into lamentation; I will bring sackcloth on every waist and baldness on every head; I will make it like the mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day. [Deep mourning for children missing]
