“Where There Is No Vision, The People Perish”
3. PRAY. PUERTO RICO
John 4:35 “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”
“For they are white already to harvest”
All crops on a farm do not ripen at the same time. When wheat is ready for harvest, the farmer cannot put off the harvest to a time of his choosing. When it is harvest time, it is a time of urgency – combine the wheat or pick the peaches or cut the cucumbers before it ruins, rots or falls to the ground. Now is the time for Puerto Rico.
At any given time, there are usually 4 or 5 countries ripe – harvest time. Sad to say the Lord’s churches and His servants usually are not ready – they let a once and for all opportunity be lost. Ezekiel 3:18, 19; 33:8, 9; Act 26:26,27. It is a serious thing with God for His people to fail in opportunities. God is ready to bring about a great gathering of souls. Every Creature (Mark 16:15) can get the Gospel; thousands can be brought into the Kingdom by a great moving of the Holy Spirit. Dozens or perhaps hundreds of Churches can be established in a country for the Glory of the Lord.

IF IT WHERE YOU
If you were lost in the darkness and night
With no one to show you the way,
Would you want someone to bring you a light?
And wouldn’t you want it today?
If no one had told you of Jesus at all,
His love, His Compassion, His death,
oh, wouldn’t you want the Message to come
Before you had draw your last breath?
If sinking in evil traditions,
you were Bound by what you believed,
Helpless and hopeless,
oh, wouldn’t you want A chance at least to be freed?
Would you want them to wait while they builded new homes,
And paid for a “still better” car,
Or while making the home base an elegant place,
Before sending the Message afar?
Would you want them to table the plans that were made,
To expand on missions this year,
Because of conditions around the world,
And the days of uncertainty here?
Would you want them to wait with the Message of hope,
While you were dying and lost?
Oh, I know the answer would ring through the gloom,
“Please send it at any cost!”
So let’s send it out to the millions in need,
The Light that will show them the way;
For if it were you in the darkness and night,
You’d want it! You’d want it today!
