"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galatians 6:7

This is a promise of God. Today, many choose only to believe the promises of God concerning prosperity, eternal life, and good health. They misunderstand the laws of God concerning sowing and reaping. When Christians suffer trials and tribulations, many times they are suffering fruits of the sin they have sown in their lives. Most Christians understand this in the lives of the unsaved, but because they have come to the saving grace of Jesus Christ, they believe that the law of sowing and reaping does not pertain to them.

The difference for the Christian is God's grace which sustains us through the trials, corrections, and disciplines. We must endure these trials, knowing that it is by these lessons that we are set free. We are strengthened in His grace so as not to repeat the sin. This is the primary purpose in God putting us through trials. The writer of Hebrews in speaking of Jesus, stated:

"Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered." Hebrews 5:8

The word suffered is the Greek word PASCHO. It has no limits as to the suffering incurred, even unto death. The scriptures reveal that Jesus was a man of many sorrows, Isaiah 53:3. As Paul wrote,

"And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians. 2:8

Yet today, when it comes to suffering, obedience, dying to self and the old selfish nature, most Christians turn away and say, "This is not the God we serve." They continue to sow to their flesh --- and of their flesh they shall reap corruption, Galatians. 6:8.

When we sow seeds of corruption, those seeds bring forth an abundant harvest in our lives. They will not only bring forth, but will bring forth abundantly. Many forget the laws of multiplication: "A farmer never sows a single seed expecting to reap a single seed." God, in His design of the seed, has provided that every seed bring forth abundantly. We are informed in the book of Genesis:

"And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good." Genesis. 1:12

God designed every seed to produce after its own kind. That which is sown will produce what is sown. When we plant a seed of corn we harvest, or reap, corn. It will not only produce itself, but will produce itself abundantly.

Some Christians look at their diseases and circumstances and are perplexed that their prayers for healing and deliverance seem to fall on deaf ears. They do not understand that their trials are a result of seed sown with the natural law of multiplication, increasing their harvest of woes.

We have all heard the expression of "sowing our wild oats in our youth" --- speaking of the frivolous attitude toward life and not looking to the consequences of our actions. Many Christians operate their lives in very much the same way. They sin, and continue in sin, believing that God's forgiveness wipes the slate clean each time. They believe there will be no harvest of that which was sown.

Christians should tremble with fear when the thought of committing willful sin comes into their mind. They do not see little "pet" sins as seriously as God does, nor do they understand the consequences in this life of harboring those "little" sins in their hearts. Secret sins can keep you from the promises and greatness available to you in Christ. God's promises are predicated on our obedience to His Word and His voice.

Many Christians believe that purification of their lives is the sovereign work of God, somehow manifesting itself as they sit under preaching, reading their Bibles, and praying, without any attempt on their part to "mortify the deeds of the flesh," Romans 8:13 and Colossians 3:5. They misunderstand or ignore the principle of sowing and reaping.

In all areas of our lives, what we sow will bring forth a harvest. Many sow seeds with their mouth that bring forth a multiplied harvest of sickness, grief, and destruction. Solomon wrote in the book of Proverbs:

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Proverbs 18:21

The words we speak can bring forth death or life. There is power in our words. Yet, many Christians have "diarrhea of the mouth", with no regard as to what they speak or what seeds they are sowing by their tongue. Jesus revealed:

"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Matthew 12:36

The seeds that we sow with our mouths will produce fruit.

"Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." Matthew 7:17-20

We will be judged for that fruit in the day of judgment. When the mouth speaks, it manifests a deeper problem that is in the soul. Jesus revealed unto the Pharisees:

"O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." Matthew 12:34

We speak what is manifest in our hearts. This is what we talk about. If we are thinking about our job, our debts, our family, our troubles or our God, this is what we talk about, for this is what our minds are set upon.

Later, when Jesus was addressing the Pharisees, He again informed them that it was not what went into a man that defiled him, but that which came out of the mouth that defiled him, Matthew 15:11.

"But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man." Matthew 15:18

Many Christians are being defiled before God because of what comes out of their mouths. The words they speak produce a harvest in their lives --- good or evil. One who speaks of being sick is sick. One who always confesses poverty, lives in poverty. Those who confess hardship, have hardship. What they sow with their mouths they reap in their circumstances.

"He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail." Proverbs 22:8

The word iniquity means "moral, evil, or unrighteousness." The word vanity means "to labor in vain". If iniquity is sown, the harvest will be vanity. He who labors, labors in vain. We can sow iniquity with our mouths or by our actions --- but by whatever means it is sown, it produces a harvest. Job reveals,

"Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same." Job 4:8

There are absolutes in God and God will not be mocked. When speaking to His disciples, Jesus brought forth the truth:

"A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh." Luke 6:45

That which our mouths speak is the fruit we will bear. Jesus went on to say,

"And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" Luke 6:46

Those who call Jesus, "Lord! Lord!" and do not the things He says, are children of disobedience. Peter, who was given the keys of the Kingdom, relates:

"For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them." II Peter 2:21

Today, many who are calling Him "Lord, Lord", have turned from the way of righteousness and are going the way of the world. The word repentance has been lost to the Christian lifestyle. How much could be done to correct the world's ills if the church had not forsaken the way of righteousness, and had not become a mockery and a byword by the worldly people in it. Christians do more to mock God and to tear down the way of righteousness with their mouths and their actions than the world does with all their ways. If the church had stood strong, God would have fought their enemies, but since they have forsaken His way, God has forsaken them.

Indeed, much of the present condition in the world will be laid at the feet of the apathetic, non-productive church. The church is reaping what it has sown. What the carnal church practices in secret, God will make known openly, and the world will justify their actions by using the church as an example. Jesus spoke to His disciples,

"Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops." Luke 12:3

God is exposing the sin in His church. He is revealing their innermost thoughts. The sin that has been conceived or sown in the heart is being revealed. and proclaimed upon the housetops. God's judgment must begin at the house of God, I Peter 4:17.

Many Christians are witnessing the harvest of the seeds of iniquity which have been sown in their hearts. God is bringing the promised, fiery trials in their lives. Peter wrote,

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you." I Peter 4:12

These fiery trials are to try us, so that we may come to repentance and learn. These trials come upon us so our "loving Heavenly Father" may become our all in all, and so we may know and understand that He is a holy and righteous God. God's Word is established above His name. All men, especially those who have laid claim to His name, must meet all the requirements set forth in God's Word.

". . .By the law, (God's Word) is the knowledge of sin." Romans 3:20

Jesus' coming did not destroy the law. Jesus' death did not destroy the law. His love and grace were expressed to all mankind as examples that we may fulfill the demand of the law through a disciplined life in Christ. Those who do not fulfill the Word, or refuse to become the Word of God, will witness the fiery trial that God is bringing upon His church to purify it.

"That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." Ephesians 5:27

God will have his holy EKKLESIA (called out ones) without spot or wrinkle. In order for God to be able to present this glorified EKKLESIA unto Himself, it will be necessary to bring judgment upon His house, to purify and cleanse it from all unrighteousness.

"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" I Peter 4:17

In order for God to have a harvest of the righteous, He must bring judgment upon the unholy seed that has been planted in His holy people. Repentance must come to the church before revival can come, bringing in the last, great harvest of souls. Most generally, the church will not accept the idea of judgment, but rather believes that God has some secret escape plan for His people. Many believe He is simply going to return to earth and make everything OK, throw down all our personal enemies, and render to His people the control of the whole earth. They seem to have overlooked the disclosure of the writer of Hebrews:

"But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;   From henceforth expecting (waiting) till His enemies be made His footstool." Hebrews 10:12-13

He spoke nothing of overcoming our enemies. But it is us who are going to overcome His enemies. What are the enemies of God? Most would answer satan or the devil. Did not Jesus defeat satan on the cross? Jesus related to His disciples,

"Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you." Luke 10:19

We have all power over the enemy --- over satan and his whole spiritual realm of darkness. Most Christians allow satan to trouble them because they do not know their spiritual authority in Christ, the Holy Spirit. They live a defeated life because they fail to believe the Word of God. Many Christians, when beset with trials, begin to rebuke satan, not understanding that they are really fighting a chastening, loving Father. Satan is not the enemy of God, he is the enemy of God's creation. God has all power in heaven and in earth, Matthew 28:18. Unfortunately, most Christians have not been taught their authority. If God has an enemy, what is that enemy?

"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4

Are we an enemy of God because we are a friend of the world? We must understand that the world in us is the enemy of God. When we come to that realization, we then need to seek within ourselves to see if there be any of the world in us.

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." I John 2:16

As long as there is the lust of the flesh or the eyes, we have not yet dealt fully with the world in our lives. The pride of life is those accomplishments that we have obtained which seem to captivate our conversation, giving ourselves the recognition instead of God.

"They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them." I John 4:5

These all speak of the world and their worldly accomplishments. Many have such pride in what they have accomplished for the Lord. Their pride of life is the enemy of God, and they are sowing seeds of destruction in their lives. God will judge and throw down all the pride of life. We need to deal, and deal quickly, with all the world that is left in us. Christ is our only hope of glory.

"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Romans 8:7

The carnal mind is enmity against God. When we are having carnal thoughts, carnal ideas and carnal actions, these are enmity against God. What else is the enemy of God?

"The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." I Corinthians 15:26

This is the living death that dwells in God's people. Death can only dwell in the flesh. There is no death in the Spirit. As long as we are dwelling in the flesh, we are subject to death. But there is a change coming in those who have called upon their Lord out of a pure heart when the corruptible have put on incorruption and the mortal have put on immortality, I Corinthians 15:53.

This is not speaking of going by the way of the grave. Paul is talking about in this life, at the last trump of God or the seventh trumpet, when the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, Revelation 11:15. So what are the enemies that must be put under His feet before He returns to this earth for His EKKLESIA without spot or wrinkle, holy, unblamable and glorious?

1      The world in His people
2      The carnality in His people
3      The living death in His people

When these are placed under His footstool, then God will claim His inheritance in the earth. In order to become part of God's inheritance, His children must start controlling their tongue and cease planting seeds which produce unholiness, unrighteousness and eternal, damnable seeds in their lives. James warned us:

"My beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." James 1:19

Why are we to be slow to speak?

"Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." James 3:5-6

James goes on to say:

"But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." James 3:8

"If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain." James 1:26

Paul also understood the proper use of the tongue:

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." Ephesians 4:29

All corrupt or corrupted communication will sow seed of destruction in our lives. If we fail to deal with our mouths, God will judge every word --- for every word produces life or death. Jesus is our example. The words He spoke were Spirit and life.

"It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

There was no worldly, frivolous, mocking, insulting, profane, worthless words spoken by Jesus. He spoke only Spiritual, life-giving words.

Peter, speaking of Jesus, related:

"Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth." I Peter 2:22

There was no guile in His mouth, no deception, no tainted words; only those pure words which would produce life.

It is not only our words that sow the seeds of destruction in our lives, but our actions also. Most Christians seem to believe that being forgiven wipes out the penalty for sin. How untrue! Bumper stickers read, "Christians are not perfect, just forgiven". This lack of understanding leads them to willfully commit sin, feeling that God will forgive them anyway, afterwards. How little they understand that they must still reap the fruit of that sin. From the beginning, God has had a penalty for sin. That penalty is separation from the Holy Spirit of God. In the garden, God revealed to Adam:

"But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Genesis 2:17

God informed man from the beginning of the consequence of his actions. Adam had informed Eve about the consequences of partaking of the fruit of the tree of good and evil. Eve pronounced the judgment of her sin with her mouth. Before she partook of the fruit, Eve proclaimed God's Word to the serpent.

"But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." Genesis 3:3

The fruit of that tree had the knowledge of good in it, but it was mixed with evil. Today, if our good is mixed with evil, it is not acceptable before God. Eve would not believe her actions would bring forth death. She chose to listen to satan who said, "Ye shall not surely die," Genesis 3:4.

Satan proclaimed to Eve that there would be no judgment for her actions. After all, God is a loving God. He will not punish you. He knows you are but dust. He will forgive. This same voice of deception is going throughout the land today proclaiming that there will be no judgment, and that all will be reconciled back unto God.

"For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Genesis 3:5

Adam and Eve did not die physically the day they sinned, but the Holy Spirit of God left them. He would no longer walk and talk with them in the cool of the day. Eve's words and actions planted death. Mankind has been reaping this death throughout the ages.

When David sinned with Bathsheba, he planted much and reaped the harvest of his sin the rest of his life. In taking Bathsheba, David committed adultery. Bathsheba was the wife of Uriah, the Hittite, who was one of David's mighty men. David had Uriah killed. David added to the spirit of adultery, the spirit of murder. The harvest of adultery came when Ammon, David's son, raped Tamar, David's daughter. The harvest of the spirit of murder was manifested when David's son, Absalom, had Ammon, Absalom's brother, killed.

David, with his mouth, pronounced his own judgment. When God sent Nathan, the prophet, to point out David's sin with Bathsheba, Nathan related to David about a poor man who had one ewe lamb which a rich man killed. Then David, thinking this terrible offence had happened in his kingdom, proclaimed,

"As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die: And he shall restore the lamb fourfold..." II Samuel 12:5-6

Nathan then told David:

"Thou art the man . . . Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house." II Samuel 12:7-10.

The seed of destruction David sowed in his household would cost him four sons. He was required to pay fourfold as his own mouth had spoken. These four sons were:

1      The baby son conceived in adultery
2      Ammon, murdered by Absalom
3      Absalom, killed by Joab, David's nephew
4      Adonijah, killed by the order of Solomon

David had twenty sons and had he said to Nathan, "Let that man pay twenty fold," it would have cost him every son he had. It was said of David that he died an old, old man at seventy, I Chronicles 29:28. The seeds that we sow do not always sprout and bear fruit at once. Sometimes those seed lay dormant for years and, when the conditions are right, they sprout and bear fruit. In David's life it took many years for the seeds he planted in the sin with Bathsheba to bear fruit.

David's sin brought separation between him and God. He knew the penalty for sin. David cried out before the Lord:

"Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me." Psalm 51:11

David did not want to lose the presence of the Holy Spirit and become a castaway as did his predecessor Saul, or as his original parents, Adam and Eve. David's heart was broken before God and he cried out in repentance and desired forgiveness before God. Forgiveness was granted, but all the seeds David had sown demanded a harvest.

Christians must learn the difference between their "position" in Christ and the need to "...work out their own salvation with fear and trembling," Philippians 2:12. There was a time of ignorance when God winked at sin, but now commands all men everywhere to come to repentance, Acts 17:30.

The single greatest need in the world today is the tearful, sincere repentance of the church. It is a must that the church return to a right standing before God to be renewed and regenerated into the image that has been set before it.

Today, many Christians who claim to be filled with the Spirit, and claim to have a knowing relationship with the Father, are filled with fear. They fear the economy. They fear the government. They fear war, the stock market, the banking system. They fear sickness, death and old age. Yet, we are informed:

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." II Timothy 1:7

We are informed that fear is a spirit, and that fear does not come from God. When we fear, we are expressing a lack of faith, and are planting seeds of doubt in our lives that will produce a harvest. Our peace in Him is the real measure of our faith. Isaiah tells us:

"I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not." Isaiah 66:4

God will give us our fears. Those fears are seeds that are sown which produce a harvest that will bring separation from God. Job proclaimed:

"For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me." Job 3:25

Job feared the loss of his children. He feared the loss of his servants, his cattle and his livestock. He feared ridicule, so God sent his three friends. He feared the truth about himself, so God sent Elihu. God allowed all these things to come into Job's life. Why? Because he feared they would come upon him.

Today, many Christians are fearing the coming wrath; the judgment of God upon the whole earth. God made us a promise through the prophet Ezekiel,

"Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith the Lord God." Ezekiel 11:8

If we have truly placed our lives and all we have into the hands of our God, we have nothing to fear. Paul stated:

". . .For I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day." II Timothy 1:12

There are many other areas that pertain to sowing and reaping. One of these areas is "forgiveness". We are forgiven as we are willing to forgive. Jesus stated:

"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:14-15

If we sow seeds of unforgiveness, then God will not forgive us. When Peter asked the Lord how many times he should forgive, Jesus stated, "Seventy times seven." If we sow seeds of forgiveness, we will reap forgiveness from our heavenly Father and those we come in contact with.

We are aware of the "golden rule" which is a perfect example of sowing and reaping, "Do unto others as we would have others do unto us." This is the law of the prophets, Matthew 7:12.

Another area of sowing and reaping where many fall short in their relationship with God is in the law of giving and receiving. The tithe is a perfect example of sowing and reaping.

"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." Malachi 3:10

If we follow God's law of tithing and giving, we are promised a multiplied harvest in receiving. He will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing we will not have room enough to receive. Praise God! This is also true when we give up houses, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, or wives, children or lands for His name sake, Matthew 19:29. These are all seeds sown in the Kingdom. What is God's promised harvest? We shall receive a hundred fold return and shall inherit everlasting life.

This is also an example of giving and receiving. Those who are willing to forsake all for the Kingdom of God's sake shall receive an hundred fold return on that which they have given up. This is an unchangeable promise of God. We can do nothing for Him that He does not give us a multiplied harvest. Those who learn this truth of His Word shall inherit everlasting life.

When we are obedient to God's Word, His blessings flow. When we are disobedient, He must correct us even as we must correct our disobedient children.

God does not take pleasure when He has to correct His children. We have His Word that He only chastises those He loves, Hebrews 12:6. And when He chastens us, He is only dealing with us as sons, Hebrews 12:7.

When God brings the seeds we have sown to harvest, it is to teach us and to build us that we may not continue to repeat these same sins over and over in our lives.

God's whole desire is that we come into His image and likeness so that we may become like Him in all aspects of our lives, --- sowing only good productive seed.

God is not only speaking to the unregenerate sinner, He is also speaking to the saved sinner. (Those who refuse to repent of the seeds sown, will have a multiplied harvest.) The prophet Hosea proclaimed:

"For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind." Hosea 8:7

When we sow, we reap the multitude. God would have us pray for "crop failure", that the seeds sown do not come to full maturity and begin to grow before we are willing to repent before a holy, just, and righteous God. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul stated:

"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 desires that we sow to the Spirit, and not to the flesh. We are to sow in faith. Faith is a fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22. It is impossible to have faith without the Spirit. When speaking to the multitude, Jesus related that the Kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed that is sown in the earth.

". . . It groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs..." Mark 4:30-32

If our faith is sown in good earth, it will produce the Kingdom within that cometh without observation, Luke 17:20. Many have encased their mustard seed faith and tied it around their neck. We need to get it out of our plastic life and sow it in good earth. Hosea related:

"Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you." Hosea 10:12

We are to sow in righteousness and reap in mercy.

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9

We truly need to break up the fallow ground in our lives and seek the Lord. God is desiring a repentant people. The psalmist stated,

"They that sow in tears shall reap in joy." Psalm 126:5

If we sow tears of repentance, we will reap everlasting life with joy. David wrote,

"For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5

Those who are weeping in this night season are sowing tears of repentance. They will witness the joy that comes in the morning. The morning brings a new day, and that new day is His seventh day of rest.

Joel spoke of the day of darkness we live in, but also of the new day:

"A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations." Joel 2:2

Those great and strong people are the ones who are sowing to the Spirit, and not to the flesh. They will receive a great spiritual harvest. Their mouths are speaking life. They have not made a covenant with death and with hell, Isaiah 28:15, but have come from death unto life. These are of the first resurrection. Those who have come unto God and the Lamb with their whole heart, have sown to themselves seeds of righteousness, and will reap the mercy of the Lord.
