We live in a world of changes, that the several events of time, and conditions of human life, are vastly different from one another, and yet occur promiscuously, and we are continually passing and re-passing between them, as in the revolutions of every day and every year. That every change concerning us, with the time and season of it, is unalterable fixed and determined by a supreme power and we must take things as they come, for it is not in our power to change what is appointed for us. The day will give place to the night and the night again to the day. Is it summer? It will be winter. Is it winter? Stay a while, and it will be summer. Every purpose has its time. The clearest sky will be clouded, joy succeeds sorrow. The sun will burst from behind the cloud, very hour of each is fixed, and can neither be anticipated nor adjourned a moment. There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time for God to plant a nation and time to pluck. There is a time for men to plant, a time of the year, a time of their lives but, when that which was planted has grown fruitless and useless, it is time to pluck it up.
The formation of a seed is part of the process of reproduction. Seeds have been an important development in reproduction process. Seed means anything that can be sown. E.g. Time, Money, Potatoes, Maize etc.
Within the seed, there usually is a store of nutrients for the seedling that will grow. The stored nutrition varies depending on the kind of plant.

HARVEST Revelation 14:15
Harvesting means the process of gathering a ripe crop from the field. Also it means activity of reaping, gathering, and storing of the harvest.
By a harvest, an emblem that sometimes signifies the cutting down of the wicked, when ripe for ruin, by the judgments of God, and sometimes the gathering in of the righteous, when ripe for heaven, by the mercy of God.
From that verse we observe that;
The Lord of the harvest is Jesus Christ with His holy angels.
The harvest work, the sickle which is the instrument of harvest is the sword of God’s justice, the field is the world, reaping is cutting the inhabitants of earth down and carrying them off.
The harvest time, when the measure of sin of men is filled up, and they are ripe for destruction. Christ will thrust in His sickle, and the earth shall be reaped.
This is the time for you to check what you’ve planted/planting (good/bad) . Are you bearing fruit for the kingdom? Where do you invest your time, money, ability or even talents or skills. God is beckoning unto you to come back.
He will surely ask you to account for the seed given to you, you can repent now and begin to make known the joy of the world i e. Jesus Christ. Harvesting of the earth is at hand, no matter what you sow, harvest awaits you.
Check your ways before God and you shall be blessed.
