This is incredibly true. Add to this the insults of those who continually lie to you…an act of hatred according to God, while professing belief, love, friendship, Christ…somehow thinking the fruit they bear is good, when it is stinking rot that they are ambushing and attacking your heart with. Bad people. Just plain wicked. And one day the reaping will be inescapable. Which is heartbreaking and at the same time God’s vindication for what they do to Him and what they do to His children. For those of you who practice such evil as this and things spoken of in this post, repent and surrender to the biblical Jesus Christ while you still may. Each time you do these things and do not confess them as sin against God as well as sin against His child, your heart and conscience hardens more and more until you will be able to do these things, not really feel convicted and still believe you are somehow actually biblically saved. God does turn folks over to their own depravity. How will you know you have been turned over to yours, when you have no real gift of repentance nor any truly deep remorse over your sin, which is scripturally demonstrated, as you continue in it? How lost is utterly lost? You have no idea. You cannot as these things are spiritually discerned, and those who continue to practice wickedness do not have the Spirit of Truth, HIS Spirit. And it is God that determines those definitions clearly in His word, you do not in your deceitful mind, no matter how much you may try to convince yourself otherwise.
For those of you who suffer at the hands of such wicked folks, know that God knows and He shall repay. Rest in His love, and know that He has it all taken care of, even as we speak. And may we all be careful in what we sow. It is all too easy to let hurt, betrayal, wickedness against us, or simply our own vain pride somehow set aside what the word says and not set a guard over our own mouths. No one is exempt from this law…you shall reap what you sow. Sow a good harvest. It is never too late for genuine repentance and complete surrender of your complete you to the One who made a way for you to be a new creation….don’t wait. God holds your next breath, and your last breath. Only He knows if they are one in the same.~AGM†
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
This was our study last night. Four small verses…but boy, packed full of truth.
The idea of our deeds and words having power is so true, but not in the sense of the Prosperity Lie, but in the sense of sin and death.
Nice subject, I know, but one that needs to be talked about.
Do you realize that when one does good or evil, he is sowing seeds into someone else’s life? This is huge, because of two very important reasons.
1. Those seeds will sprout in the person’s heart that you treated either good or bad.
2. You will reap a harvest good or bad eventually.
Do we think about this when we treat others with insensitivity, impatience or malice? Most of us do not. Most of us have no clue of the damage we inflict on others, with our words and deeds. We seem to think we can unload on someone (usually a loved one) and think that because we can’t see the damage, there must be none.
This is furthest from the truth. We inflict damage on each other almost on a daily basis. We cut and slice, and jab each other with jokes, sarcasm, and insensitivities and go our way without one thought about what we leave in our wake.
We leave hurting, bleeding people who must get harder in order to deal with the pain. Emotional scars form and this leads to hardness.
But the worst of it is, in verse 8 it tells us that if we sow to the flesh we reap corruption, or as our English language says–decay. You see, we are reaping back to ourselves and to those we hurt decay. I explained it this way to my children:
The flies of sin land in our hearts and in the hearts of those we hurt, and lay the eggs of decay. Those eggs hatch and the maggots eat away at our heart, sensitivity to sin and leave nothing but death after they are filled.
So now, not only are we contributing to the decay of our own hearts (which leads to death), but we also cause the progress of decay in other’s hearts as well.
As a man sows, that shall he also reap. If you sow corn seeds into the ground, you will reap corn–not blueberries.
If you sow apple seeds, you will not reap watermelons.
If you sow evil, selfishness, arrogance or anything that is not glorifying to God and edifying to others into someone’s heart, you will reap the same back to yourself. This is a fact, and God promises it.
This is why Paul commands us to edify each other, building each other up with encouragement and love (1 Thess 5 & Eph 4. 29).
It’s harvest time now…let’s also consider the harvest of our works toward others…it would be a lot nicer to have a harvest of good deeds rather than rottenness.
