Our witnessing and writings
The master teacher Jeshua (Jesus Christ) was clear about what his followers had to do. They too had to go out into the world, like he did, to proclaim the works and words of his heavenly Father, showing the world how Jeshua as the Messiah was the way to God.
The apostles were called and came to understand that Jeshua (Jesus), left them a model for us to follow his steps closely. (1 Pet. 2:21) Not only do we have Jeshua as a model but now his words are also written down for us to follow and to act on.
Jesus likened our day to harvesttime, when there is much work to be done
but not much time in which to do it. He said:
"Yes, the harvest is
great, but the workers are few. Therefore, beg the Master of the harvest
to send out workers into his harvest." (Matt. 9:37, 38, NW)
Coming closer to the particular times spoken of in the Bible, we should take up our task seriously and show others why it is so important to come closer again to our Most High God.
We have come into times where we have to saw seed of the Kingdom message and should hope that it when sown on good soil sprouts, matures and produces fruit. (Luke 8:15)
It is Jehovah's law that fruit be borne after its kind; therefore we
should bear the same fruit that is sown in us, namely, the fruit of the
Kingdom, its message. (Gen. 1:11)
Jesus climaxed the counsel about being fruitful when he said to his
"My Father is glorified in this, that you keep bearing much
fruit." (John 15:8, NW)
Note he said "much fruit." This forcefully draws to our attention that
Jehovah requires us to be productive witnesses, accomplishing much
through preaching, locating persons of good will, feeding them and
bringing them to maturity so that they likewise will see their privilege
of bearing Kingdom fruit. (Titus 3:8; Heb. 13:15)
People when hearing the Word of God, fo have it to enter in their mind and to let it grow into their heart.
Real followers of Jeshua, Christ Jesus, should bring the messages of the coming Kingdom unto them, and should be patient with them, giving them time to let it grow so that they too can become mature Jeshuaists, or followers of Jeshua, the Christ
When we speak of vintage most people think of the yield of wine or grapes from a vineyard or district during one season.
Wine, usually of high quality, identified as to year and vineyard or district of origin gives us vintage wines of which we have certain expectations.
The vintage we are looking at is the group or collection of people or things sharing certain characteristics.
It has taken thousands of years before it came to the point that people came to see what their Maker wanted from them and how they best got their to be partakers of the Holy Land and the Kingdom of God.
Jeshua showed the way to the path and gate to enter the Kingdom of God. It is up to his followers to guide also others to find the right direction. all should be aware that the world is an attractive place with many roads which lead to destruction and only a few who bring people to that small path and narrow gate fo the Kingdom of God, where there can be found a non-ending peace and a restored paradise.
Those who come to love God shall have to study His word regularly and shall have to drink it as precious vintage wine, letting it savior them but also letting them to grow in that Word of God, becoming more mature in Biblical knowledge.
