The Harvest of the Earth
Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
And another angel h came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, i "Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest j of the earth is ripe."
So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
And another angel came out from the altar, k who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, l "Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe."
So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into m the great winepress of the wrath of God.
And n the winepress was trampled o outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, p up to the horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

Ephesians 1:3 - 11
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
