Take a moment to think about your past, think about that which you have sown. How is your reaping going? Is your harvest great? Good? Not so good? Poor? Do you realize that what you are harvesting is directly the result of how you sowed?
If you plant egg plant in cold frozen ground, nothing is going to happen, but if you put an egg plant seed in warm moist rich soil, it is going to grow and produce abundantly. And so it is with all things in which we sow. Sow correctly and harvest abundantly. Sow incorrectly and your harvest will be poor to say the very least.
I'm not going to lecture you on this, for many the sowing was done years ago and now they are reaping the rewards of that sowing, for some of you, you are sowing now and you are reaping and will continue reap as time goes on. And yet others of you still have yet to sow, but sow eventually they will, and reap according to that sowing in due time.
If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? (1 Corinthians 9:11 ACP/KJV) If I, as a preacher, have sowed unto you things of God, a love of Jesus, a fear and desire to serve Him, than I will reap crown upon crown to place at the feet of Jesus the microsecond He lets me come home. If you as parents have sown good thoughts, deeds and a love of the Lord Jesus in your kids, you too will reap abundantly. For if I have sown unto you the things of God, the harvest will include your getting rid of the carnal things that had caused you to enslaved to satan.
But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. (2 Corinthians 9:6 ACP/KJV)
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&8a ACP/KJV) You can deceive yourself, but you can not deceive Jesus. If you sent your daughter to the public school system and she had an abortion at 14 and her first lesbian relationship at 15, well, you might still be trying to justify your actions to yourself, but Jesus sees and knows your heart. He knows that you are reaping that which you sowed. He knows that your grandchild is dead because you put mammon ahead of Jesus, that you put your daughter in a public school instead of loving her enough to home-school her. He knows that it is your fault she killed her baby and it is your fault she is committing the abominable sin of homosexuality. And you will, if you have not already, be reaping even more horror and rotten harvest. But, there is a way out.
but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:8b&9 ACP/KJV) But, on the other hand, let us say you have sown well, you have sown the seeds of Christ. You have lived your life and taught your children, using the word of God, the Holy Bible as your guideline. Then, your harvest is and will continue to be sweet and bountiful.
Yes my brothers and sisters, we all reap from the garden in which we have sowed the seeds. I would like you to take a minute and go to the lead story and first picture on this weeks Christian-news-in-maine.com. http://www.christian-news-in-maine.com/may21-2005.htm What do you think her dad and mom are reaping? What do you think they will reap further on down the road?
Now go to April 30th issue http://www.christian-news-in-maine.com/april30-2005.htm and look at the second picture down. That child's parents are reaping what they have sown and the harvest is sweet and exceedingly bountiful.
Yes, we all reap that which we sow, and as I said earlier, there is a way out, and that way out is Christ Jesus. Jesus said ... "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
Guys there is no middle ground, you are either sowing the seeds of Christ or you are sowing the seeds of satan. Every person on earth, regardless of age, sex or anything lese serves either Christ or satan. There aint no purgatory!!! If you sow the seeds of satan, the seeds of this world, you will reap a harvest fit for hell, a rotten, filthy, stinking baby murdering homosexual laden harvest. BUT, if you sow the seeds of Righteousness, the seeds of the Lord Christ JESUS, then your harvest will be plentiful, beautiful, honest and enjoyable. You decide what you will harvest, not me, not Jesus, but you.
You know, it is not to late to give your garden to Jesus. Turn it over to Him, you be the gardener, but let Jesus be the owner. He takes real good care of those things that are His. The father of that 13 year old girl being leered at by the lesbian can still turn himself and his family over to the Lord. At her age it is not going to be easy, that garden, while it looks good, is full of the nastiest weeds you can imagine, weeds of filth planted and cultivated by the public schools system, but it is not to late. But with each passing day, as she is more and more corrupted, the task of turning her over to the Lord is going to get more difficult, for if she has not yet, she will soon start making decisions that can and will haunt her for the rest of her life. The look on her face has to be taken as encouragement by the filthy old lesbian who is leering at her.
Lord, help us to turn everything over to You, our lives, our families, our gardens, our businesses, everything, let us turn our ministries over to You for who are we to serve but You? For as Peter once said to You Messiah, Christ Jesus: "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that Thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God." (John 6:68&69 ACP/KJV)

Lord this cancer of Mac's is starting to get in the way, this ministry needs him whole, just a thought Lord, is all it will take, just a thought on Your part.
There is a young man, a veteran who suffers from some kind of chemical weapon exposure, in a Veterans hospital in Colorado, he is young, and he is Saved, yet his wife just abandoned him. Please pray for him, Lord, help him and deal with her and those who hurt him, we ask this of the Father in Your name Lord Jesus, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, amen.
The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
