The Wait Between Planting and Harvesting

Posted by bro cr0cus on Monday, June 8, 2015, In : Seed & Harvest 
Jesus also said, “The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens. And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest time has come.” (Mark 4:26-29 NLT, emphasis min...

Laws of Seed and Harvest (Part 3)

Posted by bro cr0cus on Friday, April 11, 2014, In : Seed & Harvest 
Seed must be planted in good ground


Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! (Matthew 13:8 NLT)

The goal of seed planting is to reap a harvest. The goal is not just to plant some seed, but it’s a start.

Now that you’re planting seeds for a future harvest, we must verify that the ground will yield a desirable outcome.

There are different kinds of soil, as typified in Matthew 13. Each type of s...

Laws of Seed and Harvest (Part 2)

Posted by bro cr0cus on Thursday, December 19, 2013, In : Seed & Harvest 
Harvest Size is Dependent on Seed Value
Remember this: The farmer who plants a few seeds will have a very small harvest. But the farmer who plants because he has received God's blessings will receive a harvest of God's blessings in return. (2 Cor 9:6 GW)

In the natural realm, we understand that if a farmer does not plant today, he will not reap tomorrow. Moreover, when a planter uses inferior and low-quality seeds, the harvest will be affected. It’s either the e...

Laws of Seed and Harvest (part 1)

Posted by bro cr0cus on Monday, December 16, 2013, In : Seed & Harvest 

There is a force at work in our lives that governs our prosperity. It is a mechanism set in place by God that goes on and on even when we are not aware of it.



(Image courtesy of Lightstock)

The Lord has said, “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest...will never cease.” (Gen 8:28) Seedtime and harvest is a paired action and reaction. Sowing and reaping always go together.

The laws of seed and harvest are so embedded and ingrained in our system, both physical and spiritual, th...

The Welfare of the Seed-Planter

Posted by bro cr0cus on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, In : Seed & Harvest 



Sowers are special to God
Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving]. (2 Corinthians 9:7 AMP)

There are only a dozen verses and categories where the Bible explicitly showed what or who God loves, and one of them is a cheer...

The Bible is our reference for Christian Economics and financial progress. The Word of God is full of revelations concerning prosperity waiting to be uncovered by every generous child of the Father. And it all starts with a seed.

Spiritual Seeds

 
God’s Word is a seed.
The farmer sows the word. (Mark 4:14 GWT)

When we share the Gospel, the Holy Spirit uses the Bible verses that we have planted into people’s hearts to convict them of their need of a Savior. So...

The Poor in Spirit

Posted by cr0cus ... on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

"God blesses those who realize their need for him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is given to them." (Mat 5:3 NLT)

Traditional spirituality can be debilitating. The Bible did not say that "God blesses the poor just because they are poor." But as it turned out, people have this idea that it is spiritual to be poor. And so it became: the poorer you are, the more spiritual you are.

No, that is just not true. What Jesus taught was about being "poor in spirit." It is recognition of our need for God, ...

The Gospel to the Poor

Posted by cr0cus ... on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” (Luke 4:18-19 NIV)


What is the good news to the poor? For them, the good news that matters to their everyday lives is that ‘they don’t have to be poor anymore.’ 

 

The Bible teaches that the poor are captives. They need freedom from th...

A Divine Order for Prosperity

Posted by cr0cus ... on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 


"Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well." (Gen 26:25 NIV)

Background: Isaac and his household moved away from the kingdom of Abimelech by request (Gen 26:16). Leaving a secure zone, they encamped in a valley.

Isaac then re-opened the wells previously dug by his father – with no problems. Then his servants searched and dug again, but this time, the herdsmen quarreled and disputed with them. He dug but he didn...

A Way Out of Poverty and Lack

Posted by cr0cus ... on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

"Give, and you will receive. You will be given much. Pressed down, shaken together, and running over, it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you." (Luke 6:38 NCV)

 

The world says to hold on to what we got. But the Bible asserts that we give, and then we’ll be given more. The world says that the rich should give to the poor. However, the Bible affirms that all should give - even the poor.

Generosity is an escape from the trap of financial crisis...

Wise Up and Wear a Crown of Wealth

Posted by cr0cus ... on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

"The wealth of the wise is their crown, but the folly of fools yields folly." [Prov 14;24 NIV]

Some people who are held wise do not have a crown. Sad to say, they are poor. Being wise and poor present complications. And that, in itself, is a paradox.

How can someone wise be poor? Can’t the wise use their wisdom to avoid poverty?

A crown is displayed for all to see. What do poor people show off but misery and unrepaired brokenness? It is foolish to remain poor. Poverty yields foll...

The Seed-Giver and the Sowers

Posted by cr0cus ... on Monday, April 16, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

"Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness." (2 Cor 9:10 NIV)

 

It begins, continues and ends with God. When we have a need, we can pray to ask God for a seed. That seed is not enough to meet our need, so we don’t eat it – we plant it. That seed will produce a harvest so much bigger than the original seed. God will give us seed to sow, and He trusts that we sow it. He will co...

The Root of All Evil

Posted by cr0cus ... on Monday, April 16, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 


"People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."
(1 Tim 6:9-10 NIV)

 

God wants us Christians to be rich, progressively and in due time. But just like any other extremes and excesses, we can have money to our destruction. The fine line is atti...

In the Beginning...was the Seed

Posted by cr0cus ... on Monday, April 16, 2012, In : Seed & Harvest 

The Principle of the Seed


1. God starts with seeds

Then God said, "Let the earth produce plants--some to make grain for seeds and others to make fruits with seeds in them. Every seed will produce more of its own kind of plant." And it happened. The earth produced plants with grain for seeds and trees that made fruits with seeds in them. Each seed grew its own kind of plant. God saw that all this was good. (Gen 1:11-12 NCV)

In the Beginning, God intended the principle of the seed. ...

The Effect of a Neglected Offering

Posted by cr0cus on Thursday, March 31, 2011, In : Seed & Harvest 

(v45) “As a result, large crowds soon surrounded Jesus, and he couldn't publicly enter a town anywhere. He had to stay out in the secluded places.” (Mark 1:38-45)

Jesus had a plan and a goal: To preach in the synagogues and to perform miracles there. He wanted to go where the people were.

But there was a man who got healed of leprosy, and he needed to ‘bring an offering’ as required by the Law, and as instructed by Jesus. He did not obey, but went out about doing what he felt lik...
