The Seed/ Word of God sown in our good hearts will produce fruit of his spirit and nature.
This is what God is looking for FRUIT! As you seek God through His word you are seeking The Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, His Fruit, His Nature, His Way of doing things.
Then He will add all these other things unto you.
The Seed is The Word of God — not money.
Money will not produce the fruit of God’s nature within us, but His Word sown in our hearts will.
The truth is that gaining money before your heart has been fully transformed though the processes of God through His word can in fact cause you to fall into many temptations and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition, (1 Timothy 6:9).
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever,” 1 John 2:15-17.
His Word sown in our hearts will produce the fruit needed to accomplish God’s true will and purpose!
God’s Word sown in our hearts will cause us to be partaker of His divine nature to be true authentic minsters of The Gospel, being true givers and true receivers for His true purposes to be done in this earth.
When your heart is full of His love, nature, and charity, then he will add to you all you have need of because your heart will be pure to do his true will with it, which is to get souls saved and be a blessing and minister to those in need as he says so in Matthew chapter 25.
“Now the end of the commandment is CHARITY out of a PURE HEART, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm,” 1 Timothy 1:5-7.
This is the true authentic ministry of Jesus, to get souls saved from hell and to be well able minsters of the new covenant not of the dead letter of the old law that killeth, but of The Spirit that will bring forth life and fruit of His Spirit by truly serving and ministering to those in need.
God did not call his true new covenant ministers to rob the flock and handle the word of God deceitfully for filthy lurce (dishonest gain).
He called us to freely give as we have freely received of Him. The Word of God is not for sale — neither are the gifts of The Spirit.
Then and only then will he add unto you what is needed the provision to do His Will. Then He will cause men to freely give unto your bosom and you will no longer have to peddle the word of God and His Gifts.
God is not pleased with all of these gimmicks to sell His word and gifts to gain money! Get your heart right. Repent — The Kingdom of God is at hand!

“But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity,” Acts 8:20-23.

“Now the parable is this: THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD,” Luke 8:11.
“And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: a sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of The Kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand,” Luke 8:4-10.
“Now the parable is this: THE SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD.
Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the WORD with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.” Luke 8:11-15.
“And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable. And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of The Kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables? T HE SOWER SOWETH THE WORD,”Mark 4:10-14.
“And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in HIS DOCTRINE, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:but when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and DID YIELD FRUIT THAT SPRANG UP AND INCREASED; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear,” (HIS DOCTRINE) Mark 4:1-9.

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:31-40.
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? T hen shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.” Matthew 25:41-46.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”Matthew 7:21-2.
