The Firstfruits

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Have the Goodie read to you!)

… the firstfruits of Achaia … (Romans 16:5).

… firstfruits of His creatures (James 1:18).

… the firstfruits unto God … (Revelation 14:4).

In every harvest there is that small portion of the crop that matures early, before the vast majority of the rest. The firstfruits are a token of that which is to come – the full harvest.

Under the Old Testament economy the firstfruits belonged to God, and were holy unto Him.

In every generation, and in every place, God has had His firstfruits; those who come to harvest earlier than the rest. What a blessed privilege to be the firstfruits of the Lord; and just as God has brought us to faith, so He, too, will bring the rest of His creation.
