You will reap what you sow?
As I was meditating on the LORD tonight and praying, the LORD spoke to me the word “seed.” He said the seed is symbolic for the word of God, saints; children, faithfulness, fullness of iniquity, and Christ.And, the sower is our LORD Jesus Christ, by himself, or by his ministers.
The LORD revealed to me that reaping time has come! He said that many have sown seed and now that it has come time to reap some will either be happy are very disappointed on the return that they are going to get from their harvest!
I asked. “How is that LORD?” He said to look at the ground. Though we take ever so much pains with it, it brings forth no fruit to purpose, while the good soil brings forth plentifully.
Why? Because it has been cultivated and prepared for the seed sown for harvest! It was thoroughly processed! He said, that child you raise is a product of the environment in which you sowed seed, whether good or bad! Same as your business, church, ministry and your giving!
My God, my God! He said that many folk are NOT happy with the church (business, children, natural sons daughters etc.) they have sown into, or the spiritual sons and daughters they have raised, but they are a product of the seed that you have sown! And, now that it is time to look at your return, you want to cry and faint!
He said that many of you are like unto the hypocrites! For you see, the Hypocrites are like the stony ground that has been sown on rough ground (unprocessed) who often get the start of true Christians in the shows of profession, (as seed that has rotted) and many are glad to hear a good sermon, but do not profit by it. Because, like the fig tree, you go seeking fruit on that tree and there is none!
And, like Jesus, you begin cursing it, because it has wasted your time and there is nothing that will become of it, bringing you great sadness and disappointment! (Mark 11:12-25).
And, because they have not been planted or rooted or grounded when some heavy trial threatens them, or some sinful advantage may be had, they give up or disguise their profession, (act and dress holy, pretend like they are planted on a solid foundation) or turn to some easier system or watered down religion!
Come on somebody! The old folks use to say, “if you can’t take it; you show wan’t be able to make it!”
And so you see, the worldly cares are fitly compared to thorns, for they came in with sin, (never truly gave their heart to Christ but instead to the preacher) and are a fruit of the curse; they are good in their place to stop a gap, (pew dummies and zombies and space takers), but a man must be well armed that has much to do with them; for, they are entangling, vexing, scratching, and their end is to be burned.
For, Hebrews 6:8 states, “Worldly cares are great hinderances to our soul when we try to profit by the word of God and remain in sin at the same time!”
You see, the deceitfulness of riches does the mischief; they cannot be said to deceive us UNLESS we put our trust in them, then they choke (rots) the good seed. What the LORD wants you to know is that what distinguished the good ground from the stony ground was it’s fruitfulness. (Being a doer and NOT just a hearer of the word of God). By this true Christians are distinguished from hypocrites.
The LORD is warning the people of God to get into the Word of God and to be more than just a hearer of His Word! Be more than men and women who appear righteous outwardly, but are as dead men and men walk over them as graves!
And, don’t just shout and say Amen to the Word, but you have NO idea what was said, and so when you leave you say to yourself, “What in the world did the preacher say? It sounded good!”
Don’t allow the enemy to steal your seed (faith, children, Christ) through ignorance! Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and UNDERSTAND IT NOT, then cometh the wicked one , and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.
This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anointed with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he NOT root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. Mad and you don’t even know why? Sounds familiar?
But, He also that received seed among the thorns (the wicked) is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, (job, car, husband, wife, money, religion, denomination etc.) and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground (faith, doer of the word) is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, (love, faithfulness, joy, long suffering, patience, kindness, goodness and peace) and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. They will rise up and be called blessed in ALL that they do!
The LORD is speaking!
The LORD wants His people to be watchful of the enemy who is skilled at sowing tares among the wheat, while they become at ease in Zion: sleeping. Or, when the blade (the man or woman of God begins to sling the sword) was sprung up, and some brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Because, the LORD is coming and when He comes, He is coming looking for a return on His harvest! His investment!
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? (My LORD) He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. (Yes, but the real question is where or what was you doing when he slipped in?) The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. (My LORD, sometimes you wander how is it you raised apples but instead of apples you ended up with oranges? I’m shaking my head at this one too! Because, then we find ourselves scratching our heads, can’t sleep at night, fasting and praying asking God for help; when we the ones allowed the enemy to come in on our watch by a seed we sowed our selves it is sure enough time to pray!
Now, you are crying and pleading with God for help when He already warned the Church to watch as well as pray!
But, I hear the LORD saying, “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, gather ye together first the tares, (the unfaithful) and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat (faithful) into my barn!”
The LORD wants to know what will your harvest look like when reaping time comes?
See: Matthew 13:18-30.
The passing of Mantles!
Watch God pass mantles to those who are faithful and obedient in spirit!
Elisha picked up the mantle and returned to the sacred place at the Jordan River. He took the mantle of Elijah and struck the water, (meaning he began to do what his master did) and said, “Where is the LORD God of Elijah?”
After striking the water, it (the Jordan) divided (he saw the same results of his master), and Elisha crossed over to the other side, (Went on to a new level and heights in the spirit).
It is recorded that the sons of the prophets saw (witness testified of his works. What about your sons and daughters?)
Elisha struck the water and they said to one another, “The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha.” Then they came to meet him and bowed to the ground before him, (The gave honor and reverenced him)
That is when all of the other prophets vowed to be servants unto Elisha.
Come on somebody are you receiving or has your mantle died!
See 2 Kings 2:8-13.
Seek the Heart of The Father
Last night I had a dream about one of my sisters and her family and they were having a party! She told me in the dream she had something to tell me, but she never told me what it was, and left, instead!
But then, as I went on in the dream, she had a daughter who had a daughter who looked like she was her biological daughter, but she said she is not my real daughter!
But, the grand daughter had all the features that said she was her daughter. I woke up asking the LORD to help me to know what it was that she was trying to convey to me in the dream. This is what the LORD said!
Revelation and Application
This morning the LORD begin to speak to me about the face-to-face relationship that He wants to establish with His people!
He said, the word “Intimacy,” which is a close familiarity or friendship; closeness that one has with a friend.
As I woke up this morning someone inboxed me with a question asking: “Why it is we go through seasons of silence from the father?” I said to them, God wants you to consecrate and to move closer to him!
You see, when we’re not hearing from God, it may be because of many reasons, such as we don’t truly know Him and or we we need to establish a deep intimate relationship with Him!
John 16:32 states, “But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.”
But at that moment on the cross — for the first time in all eternity — Jesus was alone — God was silent — and Jesus cried out in agony, because He didn’t understand the departure of His Father!
When you are used to hearing God and He seems to be no longer there, you will begin to cry out and your heart will desperately hunger for Him.
Jesus said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (He felt as though the father had abandoned, forsaken or had departed from him. But, He forgot that during this time was a time of testing! And, the fathers eyes was so pure and Holy that he could not look upon the sins of the world to behold the sin and evil that Christ had taken upon his shoulders!)
“Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning? O my God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, and am not silent,” Psalm 22:1-2.
You see, when God is silent, the first thing we should do is ask the question, “Why?” Just as David and our Savior did. David cries out to God here in these verses with that very question — “Why? — Why have you forsaken me? — Why are you so far away from me? — Why can’t I hear You?”
And, you see there might be several answers to that question, but the first answer may be that we don’t know God as it states in John 10:27, Jesus said, “My sheep listen to My voice — I know them and they follow Me.” Or, as it states in John 8:47 it tells us that, “He who belongs to God hears what God says and that the reason you do not hear is because you DO NOT belong to God”
Come on somebody, it is time to be honest with yourself! Just as I had to be honest with myself and admit that my sister’s daughter’s child was not hers, and I had mistaken her for someone else, who was not her daughter!
When we don’t have an intimate relationship with God, the enemy can deceive us and he can also causes our discernment to be off and we can mistaken the voice of God (or miss God) for the wrong voice!
This is why God is calling the church back to intimacy!
It is time to evaluate ourselves and to get back in the press of knowing God for Yourself! You see, many of us are waiting on some prophet to tell or to give you some word (like l was from my sister who said she had something to tell me and never did) that we ourselves can begin to seek God for our own selves but instead we are having a party doing our own thing. We are idol watching TV, shopping, going from house to house like they where in the dream etc. But, I hear God and he is speaking loud and clear that it is time to know him for our own selves!
Behold, the LORD’s hand is NOT shortened, that it CANNOT save; neither his ear heavy, that it CANNOT hear: But YOUR iniquities HAVE separated between you and your God, and YOUR sins have hid his face from you, that he WILL NOT hear. For YOUR HANDS are defiled with blood, and YOUR fingers with iniquity; YOUR lips have spoken lies, YOUR tongue hath muttered perverseness, (Isaiah 59:1-3).
God is silent — not because He is not speaking, but because you are refusing to listen
— trust has been broken — and until we admit that we’ve done something wrong — until we put our radio back on God’s station — we’re not going to hear from Him — our prayers won’t seem to go anywhere — our Bible readings and devotions will be devoid of God’s presence — we will cry out and cry out for God like nothing’s wrong, but we won’t hear His voice. Just like King Saul who disobeyed God!
When we go FROM the plain path of duty, every thing draws us further aside, and increases our perplexity and temptation. Saul desires the woman to bring one from the dead, (stay away from the false prophets, psychics, witches and warlocks) with whom he wished to speak; this was expressly forbidden.
Deuteronomy 18:11 states, All real or pretended witchcraft or conjuration, is a malicious or an ignorant attempt to gain knowledge or help from some creature, when it cannot be had from the LORD in the path of duty. You see, while Samuel was living, we never read of Saul going to inquire of his advise in any difficulties; but it would have been well for him if he had.
Just like many of you God gives you a real prophet and instead of seeking them out you want those who will tell you what your flesh wants to hear; instead! But now he is dead, and he chose to bring up Samuel. the LORD is warning the church about going down to consult with witches and warlocks in this season all because you are too lazy to get a word from him, for many who despise and persecute God’s saints and ministers when living, would be glad to have them again, when they are gone.
Saul did not appreciate Samuel when he was here to give him a word and now that he is dead he goes to the grave for a word instead of trusting God!
If you have failed to have a true relationship with God it is not to late!
You can do like King David and cry out! You can say, “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest,” (Psalm 51:1-4).
