Thy Throne, O , Is Forever and Ever
Gather The Wheat Into My Barn (Matthew 13:30)

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into My barn (Matthew 13:30).

Each year we come together at the Feast of Weeks to honor the Lord, , with a tribute of a freewill offering of our hands (Deuteronomy 16:10). But do not think in one-dimensional terms; only honoring by submitting the physical things that He has abundantly blessed us with: money, crops, or freshly preserved canned and pickled foods.

While we are to remember and praise for giving us the power to get wealth and abundant crops, we are also to keep in mind that He supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ, (Deuteronomy 8:18; Philippians 4:19).

This means your tribute is not to be based solely on the size of your personal net worth or the amount of profit obtained from your investment in crypto currencies. For we all know that despite the current thrilling record levels of the stock market, there shall surely come a time when the money in modern-day Egypt, America, shall fail (Genesis 47:15).

Therefore, your tribute is to be based upon a visible, lavish disposition to voluntarily act in accordance with the principles of . This will bless you with riches that the moth and rust cannot corrupt, and that the thief cannot break in to steal, if you seek first His eternal Kingdom—The Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 6:19-21, 33).

In summary, when calls forth, “. . . gather the wheat into My barn,” you will comprehend not only the literal interpretation of being brought together in one place, but will also recognize the spiritual significance that the firstfruits of the wheat harvest are those who have gained their crown by demonstrating a gradual increase in the knowledge and understanding of the commandments, judgments, laws, and statutes of (Exodus 34:22; Matthew 13:30).

So, come and keep the law of the Feast of Weeks to be held May 28 through June 3, 2018 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center, in San Marcos, Texas. Bring before your gifts achieved from passionately and determinately following His instructions. Approach Him in reverence filled with His Word, earnestly singing and rejoicing that “Thy throne, O , is forever and ever” (Hebrews 1:8).

Plan now to attend and make your reservations early!
