“While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease,” Genesis 8:22.
This word is for someone here. The Lord has been impressing this on my heart for sometime now to bring it forth, but somehow, I felt I did not have much revelation on this till something happened to me. I was transported to the days of the writing of the above theme (Genesis 8:22). It was so new to me, when I then read it again and again.
I know people may wrest about this, as they do some of my write ups, but its okay. it is never new such has been going on even in apostle Paul’s days that Peter had to attest that Paul was writing from the Spirit.
You will not appreciate the above quoted verse, till you are brought to see the reason for it.
The whole earth was flooded for a period of 150 days, which is a total period of 5 months and it took another 40 days for the waters to recede which sums up to 1 month and 10 days, making a total of 6 months and 10 days.
Practically everything on the earth died, including plants, because the waters swallowed even the mountains. There was perhaps no way that plants on earth could survive. The earth was bare and empty of vegetation and this was when God opened the ark for Noah to come out with his family and all animals with him in the Ark.
On coming out from the Ark, he observed that the world he once knew was gone. No tents, no vegetation and nothing perhaps grows again, for they were all destroyed by the Great flood.
I could tell what was in his mind on seeing the state of the new world after the flood: “WHERE AM I GOING TO START FROM… ? WHAT WILL WE AND THE ANIMALS FEED ON…?”
He was discouraged on Seeing the state of the Earth. Immediately, God stepped in to tell him how the earth was programmed to function. AS LONG AS THE EARTH REMAINETH, SEED-TIME (PLANTING AND INVESTMENTS) and HARVEST TIME, SHALL NOT CEASE.
As soon as he heard that, he became encouraged and as such planted a vineyard.
Now let me speak to someone here who thinks life is over because of a major and colossal loss of wealth and properties. There is a program that Governs this earth. It is called the SEED-TIME PROGRAM. You may have lost your plants and every major and relevant thing in this life, but, so long as you have a SEED in your hand, you will have all you lost; just plant it!
Every tree was once a SEED, every forest was once a SEED! I came to tell you this morning that, YOU WILL GET BACK EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU HAVE LOST!
Just PLANT IT! INVESTORS ARE THE ONES WHO LIVE while others simply exist! STOP EXISTING AND START LIVING!!
Noah didn’t look helpless anymore when he understood the principles of INVESTMENT, he DRANK FROM THE VINEYARD HE PLANTED! Oh sorry, just before you get me all wrong, I am not asking you to take your seed and give to a man of God or church, Except God SPECIFICALLY DEMANDS IT. I am simply asking you to INVEST!
Do you know that 5% of the world’s population controls 95% of its resources while 95% of the worlds population struggle for 5% of the earth’s resources? That is why we have gone from survival for the FITTEST to survival for the MADDEST!
Break the cycle today. Stop EXISTING and start LIVING!
INVEST THAT SMALL SEED IN YOUR HANDS FOR INAEIDE OF IT IS A FOREST OF HARVEST FOR YOU!
