("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

There was once a spider who lived in a cornfield. He was a
big spider and he had spun a beautiful web between the corn
stalks. He got fat eating all the bugs that would get caught
in his web. He liked his home and planned to stay there for
the rest of his life.

One day the spider caught a little bug in his web, and just
as the spider was about to eat him, the bug said, "If you
let me go I will tell you something important that will save
your life." The spider paused for a moment and listened
because he was amused. "You better get out of this
cornfield," the little bug said, "The harvest is coming!"

The spider smiled and said, "What is this harvest you are
talking about? I think you are just telling me a story." But
the little bug said, "Oh no, it is true. The owner of this
field is coming to harvest it soon. All the stalks will be
knocked down and the corn will be gathered up. You will be
killed by the giant machines if you stay here."

The spider said, "I don't believe in harvests and giant
machines that knock down corn stalks. How can you prove
this?" The little bug continued, "Just look at the corn. See
how it is planted in rows? It proves this field was created
by an intelligent designer." The spider laughed and
mockingly said, "This field has evolved and has nothing to
do with a creator. Corn always grows that way." The bug went
on to explain, "Oh no. This field belongs to the owner who
planted it, and the harvest is coming soon."

The spider grinned and said to the little bug, "I don't
believe you," and then the spider ate the little bug for

A few days later, the spider was laughing about the story
the little bug had told him. He thought to himself, "A
harvest! What a silly idea. I have lived here all of my life
and nothing has ever disturbed me. I have been here since
these stalks were just a foot off the ground, and I'll be
here for the rest of my life, because nothing is ever going
to change in this field. Life is good, and I have it made."

The next day was a beautiful sunny day in the cornfield.
The sky above was clear and there was no wind at all. That
afternoon as the spider was about to take a nap, he noticed
some thick dusty clouds moving toward him. He could hear the
roar of a great engine and he said to himself, "I wonder
what that could be?"

("2 Peter 3:3-5 Knowing this first, that there shall come in
the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And
saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the
fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from
the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are

("2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all
should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come
as a thief in the night; ")

("Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day
nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.")
