Seedtime and Harvest in a Minute John 21:6 6He told them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it there, and they were unable to haul it in because of the great number of fish. 7Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it) and jumped into the sea. 8The other disciples came ashore in the boat. They dragged in the net full of fish, for they were not far from land, only about a hundred yards.a 9When they landed, they saw a charcoal fire there with fish on it, and some bread. 10Jesus told them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.”11So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many, the net was not torn. 12“Come, have breakfast,” Jesus said to them. None of the disciples dared to ask Him, “Who are You?” They knew it was the Lord. 13Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and He did the same with the fish.
How many of you could say that the fruits of your labor just appeared! Another words, your fruits came because someone else did the work!
Not many of us get to walk out what someone else did for us, but when God’s timing is involved that is exactly what happens! We walk out this explosion of trust and faith that only God can measure the rewards of the wicked from... HIS math not being the same as ours! (otherwise, we would have never been redeemed)
Beloved, when we dip our net into the waters that God has determined is our “Seedtime & Harvest” we have no choice but reap the benefits of what HE has done, dragging our abundance behind us! What a work out! But How do we know the times and seasons of God? So, that we may reap “the willing”.
If we could but figure out when and where His timing was in and out of season we would know when to plant and harvest ourselves along with the Harvest in a moment HE controls. This is a manifestation of HIS glory in our lives. There is NOTHING in the Bible that says we can not acquire this ability! IN FACT, God says HE gives us the ability to get wealth! Deut. 8:18
Blessed is he that knows this fact!
God sees the state of man as we are today, and says why are you in such poverty? “For it is HE who gives you power to get wealth so HE can establish HIS covenant with you” Deut 8:18 Did you know that God establishes his covenant with you through WEALTH! Why do you think Brides always came with a DOWRY! It was to establish covenant!
The AUDACIOUSNESS of GOD! … but then again to GOD is it normal, and we are just refusing to see the Truth of what HE outright gave us!
POVERTY strips covenant! Man, the plans and strategy of Satan...! It is appalling and an affront to the things of GOD! The church has been striped of her covenant rights for so long because someone got it in there head that they knew better than GOD, regarding covenant! They would be "O so pias” if they lived a striped life… and maybe that WAS for a time and season (God can ask us to do some “off the wall” things sometimes) But the word says that he gives us the power to get wealth to ESTABLISH covenant … it is HIS way!
If we discuss the power to get wealth through covenant, then we must discuss covenant! Doctrine formed at the beginning of time, before you and I were born, states that we are made with covenant in mind. God creates promises from the beginning of time and expects us to use our faith to enjoy them! This is our covenant right and the only caveat is an act of free willed FAITH! Something that moves us from the realm of hesitation to a realm of expectation!
How does HE do it! By the word of GOD! The more we read the word the more he exchanges lies for the truth, HE has already established in us! IT IS THE GREAT EXCHANGE! I will bring you my currency of lies for the currency of the truth of GOD! How about that!
So, the enemy brings things that Steal, Kill and Destroy and God brings the things that bring us LIFE and that LIFE MORE ABUNDANT, and there were have it folks. A life more abundant is the wealth of the wicked stored up for the righteous! How did we get so blessed?
This is why we pray this Prayer;
‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, 10Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors; 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one
This is covenant too!
Our covenant with God is so HOLY there is nothing, no power great enough to withstand the part it plays in our lives except US! God made the only piece of the puzzle US! He simply loves us so much that he roams around the earth seeking the righteous! 2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. The ones who are ready to be covenant infused! Righteousness is a sacrificial act of laying yourself down to assume the glory and covenant of the Father! This creates the opposite of what we would normally think would happen. Let’s use Jesus as an example. He sacrificed himself on the cross but instead of death, He received eternal life, not only for himself but for the world, FOR ETERNITY! This was a sacrificial covenant act and all He asks us to do is forgive daily and love the Lord with all our hearts, minds, souls and body. Counting EVERYTHING Joy! O what Goodness we are afforded for such an act of LOVE that went before us!
"Seedtime and Harvest in a Moment" is about putting ourselves in right standing with the Lord, giving of ourselves as HE did, loving the Father with all our hearts souls and bodies and so that true covenant with God is not lost on us nor our children! This is not radical believism, it is truth we can apply everyday with the ones I love!
Our hearts wayne back and forth, because we do not understand the fullness of what was done for us on that Cross! God loves us more than we can ask or think... the whole heart, soul and body that He created! He doesn’t, for a moment, see us as trash but an unclaimed Bride ready to meet her covenant maker and fully acknowledge her authority and rights in this earth!
It is then that the Bride of Christ will walk out in full awareness of who she is and become what Satan depises to this day… The Betrothed of the one true KING of KINGS and Lord of Lords.
We will know the times and seasons of our Father God,and be able to not only bring in the Harvest but command it in a moment!
John 16: 23In that day you will no longer ask Me anything. Truly, truly, I tell you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. 24Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete. 25I have spoken these things to you in figures of speech. A time is coming when I will no longer speak to you this way, but will tell you plainly about the Father. 26In that day you will ask in My name. I am not saying that I will ask the Father on your behalf. 27For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from God.b28I came from the Father and entered the world. In turn, I will leave the world and go to the Father.”
