John & Doves:
Jeremiah 8:20 The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.
This is talking about "a harvest of the saved over-comers" being past when summer ends.
It references Judah/Israel NOT being saved at the end of summer.
The end of summer IN Israel is at the Autumnal Equinox OVER Israel, Sept 26-27 2013.
The natural harvest of some things in Israel is NOT PAST when summer ends.
Some things are harvested through Fall, up until frost, e.g. pumpkins & olives.
Therefore, this verse cannot be talking about the natural harvest(s).
October/November 2009 Olive Harvest Delegation to Israel/Palestine
The harvest of the saved over-comers happens just as the summer ENDS.
Jeremiah 8:20 The harvest [of the saved over-comers] is past, the summer is ended [IN Israel on 09-26/27-2013], and we [Judah and Israel] are not saved.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
