Harvest

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.
Genesis 8:22
(Part of God's promise to Noah. Times and seasons, created by God in the beginning will never cease till the end of history.)*

Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes for the winepress is full and the vats overflow - so great is their wickedness! Joel 3:13
(As a result of the Lord's great army of locusts that had marched against Judah, there had been no harvest. But that harvest was to be restored. In the final great day of the Lord, there will also be a harvest - the harvest of God's judgment on the nations. Rev 4:14-20 draw heavily on this picture of judgment.)

The Jesus said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matthew 9:37

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 2 Corinthians 9:10
(The God who is the ultimate source of the physical food that sustains all human life is the same God who supplies the spiritual nourishment that enables believers to flourish and serve.)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrews 12:11

Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18
