God’s System of Sowing and Reaping
1. Realize God’s system of sowing and reaping is a law created by God!
Gen 1:11 AMP And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.
Gen 8:22 AMP While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Since the earth is still here and we still have cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, we can be confident that “Seedtime and Harvest” are still working the way it was designed in Gen 8:22.
The word of God is the original seed sown by God and will always bring forth a harvest of that which God designed the seed (His Word) to produce. God wants us to be Sowers of His word. You sow God’s Word when you tell others of the Lord Jesus, of His Grace, His Goodness and His Love for you and for them.
2Ti 4:2 NLT Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
The gospels of Mathews, Mark and Luke all contain the parable of the Sower which should be studied in detail as it is the key to understanding all the parables concerning the Kingdom of God.
Mar 4:13-14 NLT Then Jesus said to them, “If you can’t understand the meaning of this parable, how will you understand all the other parables?” 14 The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others.
Mat 13:3 KJV And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
Mar 4:3 KJV Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
Luk 8:5 KJV “A sower went out to sow his seed. . . .”
Luk 8:11 KJV Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Joh 1:1-3 KJV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 the same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Jesus is the living Word of God and all things were created by Him and for Him.
Col 1:16-17 KJV For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Rev 4:11 KJV Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
