Sowing and Reaping – God Sees (Video)

God sees everything is probably one of the most amazing verses in the Bible. I would venture to say that most of humanity doesn’t know that and the ones that do, rarely think about it. Yet, the Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). “Both the evil and the good,” I can’t even imagine how God must feel as He beholds all the evil in the world, all of it, instantly as it’s happening, in real-time.

Sowing and Reaping – God Sees

God sees everything is probably one of the most amazing verses in the Bible. I would venture to say that most of humanity doesn’t know that and the ones that do, rarely think about it. Yet, the Bible says, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3). “Both the evil and the good,” I can’t even imagine how God must feel as He beholds all the evil in the world, all of it, instantly as it’s happening, in real-time. Just to say, it breaks His heart, which I am sure It does, misses the depth of what’s happening. God since the creation of the world has put forth and established certain rules that govern all of nature including the crown of creation, humanity. There is no escaping it, there is no way to get around it. There is the law of cause and effect. For every cause, there is an effect. It is the rule of nature and the only one in the universe that can change it is God, or one in whom God empowers. More about that later. For now, let’s concentrate on the cause and effect, especially as to how it’s related to all of humanity, without exception.

Typically, when any kind of premise, like the premise of cause and effect, is stated, it will be mocked. To mock this premise, which is a rule of nature, is to mock the Creator, the one who established the building blocks of creation. Now let’s look at His established Word once again, the Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:7-8). God sets forth the premise of sowing and reaping. The law of cause and effect, you will always reap what you sow. We will look at the negative first. “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption.” Cause and effect! So, let’s look briefly at what sowing to the flesh means. We will move from the general to the specific. Generally speaking, anything done to the body, the soul, or the mind, that’s harmful, either intentionally or through willful neglect is sowing to the flesh. This is the cause, and the effect is reaping corruption.

So, before we elaborate on the corruption, let’s get a bit more specific in sowing things to the flesh, which are inherently harmful. Of course, most believers could immediately come up with a catalog of sins, and they would be correct because every sin has a profound effect upon the mind, the body, and the soul, which is the flesh. For example, we all know that gluttony (overeating) or purposely eating processed food, or any other kind of food that’s not good for you will harm the body leading to obesity and a myriad of different diseases or health-related problems. Cause and effect. Another example is we all know that laziness, the desire to lie around the house all day, or our unwillingness to work will also have a powerful effect upon the whole body, mind, and soul leading to mental anguish, psychological problems, and physical poverty. The list could go on and on, but we can easily see there is cause and effect. Our wrong thinking and actions will always lead to tragic circumstances. Cause and effect. Now we need to multiply this exponentially as we look at all of humanity in the midst of their chaos.

God has given humanity His beautiful laws to govern all of our thinking and actions to keep us from going off the proverbial cliff. Well, humanity has rejected those laws choosing to legislate their own morality. They have become a law unto themselves reaping the consequences of their bad behavior. They have all been sowing to the flesh and now they are all reaping corruption. Every new disease and every new virus are getting far worse, reaping death and destruction across the entire planet. Mankind is reaping what he has sown. God will not be mocked. He sees every action precipitated by every evil thought. Humanity can point its finger all day long to the accepted causes of the current COVID-19 virus, the alarming increase in global warming, and the unbelievable chaos in the world with its nonending riots and mass shootings, but they will not ever admit to the real cause. We are reaping what we have sown. Rejection of God’s Law in the Schoolroom and the halls of Government has caused an epidemic of crime, sexual immorality, and unheard-of perversions. It has caused the horrific weather patterns around the entire world that keep getting worse every day, not to mention the increasing so-called natural disasters. As the entire world sinks into oblivion for their rejection of God, it’s difficult to paint a clear picture of things to come. Hollywood has been trying to paint this picture for many years now with their ever-increasing “end of the world” movies, but nothing will capture the real horror of the things to come.

As the world passes new laws, one after another, to fix what they believe is causing their problems, they will slip deeper and deeper into the abyss trying to drag God’s children with them. New laws will be passed requiring psychological counseling and the taking of prescribed drugs and vaccinations to fight every new epidemic or ever-increasing lawlessness. As mass murders and suicides skyrocket even more laws will be passed to no avail. Dear friends, we have one of the greatest challenges ahead of us. Let’s pray that we are up to the task. As the world falls apart and it will, then they will finally discover that all their psychological counseling was useless as humanity is ready to explode. We must step up to the plate allowing God to work through us. Last week we talked about confronting an evil world. Today we will discuss how to become even more effective in confronting an evil world by sowing to the Spirit and not to the flesh. Sowing to the flesh will be of no value as we confront an evil world. So, we must die to self along with all of our selfish ambitions. The Bible says, “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts” (Galatians 5:24). When you die to self and allow the Spirit of God to come and dwell in your hearts, then you will have taken the first step in sowing to the Spirit.

The Bible says, “… but we that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:8). Step by step we will learn how to live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, and bear fruit of the Spirit. This will give you a completely different mindset, not an earthly mindset of being self-centered, but a heavenly mindset of being other-centered. Remember, that Jesus Christ did not come as a rich man, setting up charities, and giving His money to the poor. No, He reinstituted the beautiful Law and showed humanity a better way of living for others. He came to give Himself completely to others every moment of every day. Even many of His great miracles of healing reversed the natural law of cause and effect through their, God given, faith. When we sow in the natural world, we cultivate, fertilize, and water the seedlings so that they grow. We do the same in the spiritual world by keeping in step with the Spirit and by following His lead in our every thought and action. We will soon discover that our every thought and action is about doing good to others by only speaking the truth wrapped in love. It’s only the truth that will set them free (See John 8:32). The Bible says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” (Galatians 6:9-10). Dear children, to speak the truth and to do good to all men will do more than all of their laws, all of their counseling, and all of their political maneuvering. Let us be the change that the world desperately needs by giving ourselves to all that has a need.

Please join me in prayer …

Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for sending us the indwelling Spirit, our true Helper in all things. We know that the more we seek you in our ministry to others, the easier it becomes, and greater is the reward. We know in the beginning it’s quite difficult because most people don’t have the patience to wait upon you to fill them with your Spirit. Yet, without the Spirit we are nothing, nor can we do anything to really help others on how they should be helped. We are especially thankful for giving us the exact words to say at the appropriate time to bear their burden, especially if they have been overtaken in a trespass. We know the more we cultivate our relationship with the Spirit, the easier it becomes to really be good to others in a way that truly helps them. We pray that all of your children will continue to sow to the Spirit so that they can receive a harvest of Spiritual fruit and gifts to be used in being good to others, that is, to truly help them. We humbly pray this the blessed Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says …

“For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Galatians 6:8).

How to Confront an Evil World

Oh Lord, please show us how to confront a world with so much hate and open hostility towards one another. Please show us how to confront an increasingly anti-Christian world, even before the revealing of the dreaded Antichrist. The voice of Christianity, once larger than life, in this world and specifically in America, is almost nonexistent. It’s almost nonexistent in the public square by creating tremendous restrictions from openly proclaiming God’s truth in every area of society including social media, although lawlessness has full reign with almost no restrictions. The positive voice of Christianity on the news media is replaced with constant negative reporting, and the voice of hate and lawlessness is constantly aired. The encouraging voice of Christianity in public education is replaced with giving voice to other religions and promoting every perverted lifestyle; the sad result is unimaginable lawlessness in the face of our precious children. So, how do we confront this evil world? Legislating morality doesn’t work, boycotting doesn’t work, rioting in the streets doesn’t work, and even voting in the other political party doesn’t work. Only one thing will. We must learn how to share the simple Gospel and start acting like Christians by following Christ in His path to victory.

Let’s begin with how to follow Christ in His path to victory. Jesus Christ called people to a new life in Christ. Following the religious leaders of His day, as it is in any day, will not lead to a new life. Even having the correct religious beliefs won’t in themselves lead to a new life. Even following the letter of the law and the many religious standards will not in themselves lead to a new life. Only one thing will. Faith alone. Believing that Christ died for all of our sins and believing that He rose from the dead in three days to give us a new life in Christ. If we truly believe that, then we will gladly put off the old life through repentance, by dying to self, and by closing the door to the old life. If we truly believe that, then we will put on our new life in Christ by following His beautiful commandments. We will eagerly want to learn how to act like a Christian every moment of every day. Although this may appear difficult in the beginning, the more we grow up in Christ with the help of the indwelling Spirit, the easier it becomes bringing forth one blessing after another. This is the simple Gospel, which has tremendous power, the power of the Cross to convict the hardest heart.

We will discuss the three marks of a Christian, who confronts the evil world, but first, we need to understand that love motivates our behavior. Each of these marks is enveloped in a sincere agape love for others. That is, giving ourselves to others without expecting anything in return. The good news is this love comes directly from God, flowing through us to others. We simply cannot conjure up this love. It must come directly from God, or it is not true agape love. Although love is colorblind, it does recognize evil contrary to the color of the individual. When evil is recognized, then it is imperative to allow God’s love to flow unhindered through us. It is also essential to listen carefully to the indwelling Spirit and to act accordingly. If He gives us an open door to share the simple Gospel, praise God, go through it with boldness wrapped in love, but if not then bid your farewell and retreat immediately to safety. It is essential not to entertain their false teachings. The Bible says, “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew 7:6). Now, let’s discuss the marks of a Christian displayed every moment of every day, especially when we are out among those in the world.

The first mark of a Christian in confronting an evil world is allowing your joy to flood the souls of others. The Bible says, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). We must actively demonstrate our joy to the fallen world. Although every true believer suffers with Christ and are deeply grieved for those who have been taken captive by Satan, we don’t agonize over the things of the world. Nor do we follow them in their pity-party of intense emotions over every unfortunate circumstance. It’s essential that we don’t follow the evil world in their anxiety, depression, and hatefulness. If necessary, withdraw from the eyes of the world and seek God in a private place. Allow the indwelling Spirit to counsel you through His anointed Word, and if necessary, seek private counsel from a mature believer. Put the joy back into your heart, so you can confront the evil world. Recall the joy of all that Christ has done for you, that you are no longer under the power of sin and the devil, and that Christ will never leave you or forsake you. Remember the great joy of having God’s Spirit dwelling in you giving you spiritual gifts and teaching you His beautiful truth. Let the evil world always see your sincere joy in the Lord wrapped in self-giving love. This will be a powerful witness to an evil world, causing them to ask you, “what makes you so different from the world.”

The second mark of a Christian in confronting an evil world is praise. Remember this when you are out among those in the world, God inhabits the praises of his people (See Psalms 22:3). Now, let me be very clear, this is not empty praise. This is sincere praise overflowing from your heart, a heart that is happy in the Lord. This is spontaneous praise as we are moved by the indwelling Spirit to praise the Lord for all of His bounty, His love, and His protection. This praise will recognize those little miracles throughout the day even when we are out among the heathen. As a child of God, I simply cannot hide my excitement when I recognize the power of God’s love as He moves heaven and earth to open the door for sharing the simple Gospel to snatch another person from the flames of eternal damnation. We can no more hide our praise in public than putting our light under a bushel (See Matthew 5:14-16). No, we are the light of the world, so we let it shine brightly in the evil world as we joyously praise God in words, songs, and instruments. Let everything praise the Lord. As you joyously praise God among the heathen this will be another powerful witness. They will want to know what makes you so different than the rest of the world.

Finally, when we go out among the heathen, we will be careful to let our third mark of a true believer be readily observed. Don’t ever hide your thankfulness, which is an anomaly to an evil world, which rarely expresses their thanks for anything. Typically, what you always hear among the heathen is constant complaining. Unfortunately, we also hear constant complaining among those who claim to know God. On the other hand, the Bible says, “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (I Thessalonians 5:18). We must trust God’s Providence for He can take the worst-case scenario and turn it into the most amazing blessing. Remember, this is a proving ground to get you ready for eternity. We all have problems, but Christians allow those problems to strengthen them and draw them ever closer to a loving God. We are even thankful when we learn from our mistakes as we seek God’s wisdom in the matter. Be thankful in all things trusting in God’s loving Providence. This too will be a powerful witness to an evil world that is always complaining about everything. Again, they will want to know what makes you so different. Dear children, when people start asking you that question, then you will know that you are confronting the evil world for Christ. This is a world that does not have much time left, so snatch as many as you can from the fires of eternal damnation, before it is too late.

Know the Watchman on the Wall (Video)

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.
