God established that three of His seven commanded appointed times (feast days) – First Fruits, Pentecost, and Tabernacles – would be associated with two different grain harvests and one fruit of the vine harvest that took place annually in Israel. Moreover, God established that these three crops (barley, wheat, and grapes) would also depict, spiritually speaking, three classes of people. The Barley represents the holy and saintly overcomers, the Wheat represents the carnal believers, and the Grapes mostly represent the unsaved unbelievers.
Traditionally there are three main harvested crops in Israel: Barley, Wheat, and Grapes. In the last days and end times, these three crops symbolize three raptured Firstfruits’ Harvests of Souls. Respectively, these raptured Firstfruits’ Harvests of Souls are: Barley Overcomers (Bride of Christ), Tribulation Wheat Believers (Martyred Saints), and Grapes “New Wine” (Filled with the Holy Spirit 144,000).
