When Moses told Pharaoh, "Let my people go," it was because
God had announced the time for harvest. The moment had come
for Israel´s deliverance from captivity!

But Pharaoh responded, "Who is the Lord, that I should obey his
voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel
go" (Exodus 5:2). Pharaoh represents Satan´s demonic system,
including false religions and oppression that hold people under bondage.

Before Israel could be delivered, the powers of darkness had to
be shaken. So God struck Egypt with nine natural calamities.
Yet those nine disasters only hardened Pharaoh´s heart.

Finally, there came a calamity so devastating that everyone in
Egypt-from the rulers down to ordinary citizens-knew this
wasn´t just nature out of control. It was God speaking. The Lord
had sent an angel of death, and in one night the eldest son in
every Egyptian family died, including Pharaoh´s son. The very
next day, Israel paraded out of Egypt. Here was the harvest that
came just before judgment.

Centuries later, when Jesus announced the ripe harvest in
Jerusalem, He knew judgment was about to come. Years hence,
Titus and his army would invade the city, and 1.2 million people
would be killed. Many would be hung on crosses, and the city
itself would be burned to the ground.

This is why Jesus warned His generation, "You say there are four
months before harvest. But I´m telling you, the harvest has to begin
now. You have to be about the will of God, because the greatest
calamity is at your door. I´m commissioning you now to finish My
work. The time to start reaping is today."

How did Jesus describe the calamity that was to come? "Then
shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of
the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be" (Matthew 24:21). Yet,
before that calamity came, it would be time for the harvest.
