What we do with our first fruits will determine what God does with the harvest in our life. If we ignore our first fruit, God will ignore our harvest. God will not meet our needs merely according to our needs. He will meet our needs according to His Word. Bring something!
“HE SCATTERED ABROAD, HE GAVE TO THE POOR, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ABIDES FOREVER.“
10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; 11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God. 12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints [believers], but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God. 13 Because of the proof given by this ministry they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ [Messiah], and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all, 14 while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you. 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! Remember the principle: The Lord is the Lord of the harvest.
The Lord specifically says that we need to have something in our hands to present before the Lord in order for His purposes to take root and blossom in our lives.
God is not asking us to bring something we don’t have. It is about what we give, relative to what God has given us. Grateful heart and more. What can we possibly give to God that He would want? First and foremost we offer Him gratitude for our salvation. A heart of gratefulness and thanksgiving is our first offering of sacrifice.
This is the Heart of the Father in Heaven towards them, and with our financial support and prayers we can represent His Heart to them saying “Thank you Israel for giving us the Messiah” and now “We give His Love in a practical way back to you”.
The Feast of First Fruits Points To Messiah Yeshua’s Resurrection The prophetic picture of the Feast of First Fruits (Yom HaBikkurim) points to Messiah Yeshua as the First Fruits of the resurrection.
In this we see the promise of the future resurrection of those who have already gone to be with the Lord, who will receive their immortal spiritual bodies at the time of the Catching Up (Rapture), when those who are alive also receive their immortal spiritual bodies (1 Corinthians 15:50-53).
Messiah Yeshua is coming soon. Hallelujah! In the time that remains, let us dedicate ourselves to being workers for the Lord to help bring in the greatest harvest possible. As Messiah Yeshua said: “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest (Luke 10:2).
