Reaping & Sowing

Whatever you do has a way of showing back up in your life. Some people call it karma, some call it other things; yet, the reaping and sowing principle that's active in the earth shall prove itself to all who sow a particular seed, toward producing a particular harvest. This isn't grasped easily by a microwave generation because it is a spiritual law that can be manipulated by physical force and distorted; but, the consequences can not be altered.

Does the ends justify the means to Christians?

As Christians we hope to see God in peace at the end of our earthly journey. Paul wrote to Timothy saying, “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully (2 Tim 2:5). I believe Paul was encouraging to Timothy to stay within the realm of what’s right in order to receive true acceptance. The means is a process: the road we take in order to live our lives must be traveled lawfully to achieve a satisfactory end. Things begin to fall apart when universal principals are placed in stark contrast with man’s reasoning’s. God placed principles within our grasp to gain momentum with Him and achieve good success. Seed-time and harvest; reaping and sowing is such an example. For it is written, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

Whatever happened to "It does not matter whether you win or lose but how you play the game." What more can anyone ask for besides competing fairly and trying

Winning

America is a great country of winners, of people who love to win and value winning. Some may say that Americans place too much of an emphasis on winning. As opposed to cultures from the Orient that operate from a paradigm of placing greater value on one’s effort. In American Sports, effort and sportsmanship are hallmarks that are quickly slipping into the “win by any means necessary” category. Good Sportsmanship Awards are almost extinct from the performing landscape. Awarding effort and the quality in which you compete should be lauded next to M.V.P. awards or most wins or highest numbers in certain categories. Yet, winning is smiled upon in a greater way than any effort when first place is not achieved.

Striving to win is best when aligned with God’s grace.

Every since the beginning of time, man’s efforts has been involved with an acceptable conformity to winning. Paradoxically, no matter what, effort is built into winning. Nevertheless, the spirit of this world is forever tempting you with efforts that are generally against the flow of God’s grace. In the world we can do whatever we want, with only the people around us to judge, whether it’s right or wrong. However, when the world’s ways bring you to a bottom and you can’t go down any further; the Spirit of God, who been there all the time, comes to lift you, speak to you and push you into your destiny, and everything that you do from this point will push you into your destiny.

Her Name is Wisdom

God’s wisdom can never be captured by the human hand or any esoteric guru. The fiber that holds together time and space, simultaneously intertwined within unsearchable dimensions can only be grasped at by some; as dust in sunlight. Within this fiber is where God’s wisdom dwells and Truth abides. She clings to Light and longs for a place in the darkened heart.

The Progressive Nature of the Genuine Article

The Genuine Article abides in Truth. Men sought it, demons fought it, the bad try to buy it and the good try to sell it. The way of man is enlightened as the Genuine Article is firmly fitted into the heart of man, dismissing the eternal void that some foolishly try to fill by temporal means.This Everlasting Light is the Genuine Article, having no end, He continually seeks to dispel darkness. This Light cannot be hidden permanently; subsequently, the nature of this Light is to expose darkness. Light is persuasive, illuminating and intelligent. He is courageous and hides not His countenance from evil or any void where evil dwells.

 "And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I BEHELD SATAN AS LIGHTENING FALL FROM HEAVEN.  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents"... Luke 10:17-19

Truth is Universal

Say not there is no power in the truth, say not that I don’t matter and my voice is nothing, abide in the Genuine Article and you shall gain strength, abide in the Genuine Article and you shall rise above poverty and oppression, abide in the Genuine Article and you shall overcome adversity Satan the adversary the angel formerly known as Lucifer. Yes, abiding in the Truth may bring you discomfort, but it is in this revelry that victory is won. When storms come you’ll have shelter in the Genuine Article but falsehood falls apart like a cheap suit; dissected like a frog by an underclassman. Contrarily strength cometh out of the mouth of babes where God has ordained praise (Matthew 21:16) and the truth shall arise at last.

The Genuine Article cannot lie. St John the Divine wrote the account of Jesus saying “I am the way the truth and the light.” Jesus is the Genuine Article, humanity embodied Truth; a walking Light among men, empowered by the Source that holds everything together yet distinct from Creation itself. He commands the waves of sound, electricity, water and heat ordering the paths of atoms and syncing matter to obey His command.

Christ the Answer

If the foundation be removed how can any stand? The firm footing is the Word of God! Remove God and you shall fail, especially when starting out with God and then turning your back on Him as America is doing. This is the way American society is going. Yet, when trouble comes, Americans pray ceaselessly and ask; Why God? In the meantime atheist wander aimlessly trying to find themselves and dragging others into their conundrum, only later to find out after crossing the great threshold that there are no dead atheist. My Source tells me that "every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord!" Until Jesus is welcomed back into our lives our families, community country and world will continue to decline until Sodom & Gomorrah the sequel is produced in your town.

"Jesus is Lord"

Confessions of a Minister

The Ministry of Reconciliation includes resisting the spirit of this world which is influenced by Satan: the adversary, the Devil the accuser of the brethren and his offspring the children of sin. After receiving Light and having my understanding enlightened now I believe I have the power to overcome the adversary, the world and everything that comes into opposition with my walk with Christ. The searching of knowledge cannot reveal the truth. Without the Spirit of Truth knowledge only has a temporary base. Darkness cannot abide in truth, because it is the nature of darkness to hide from the truth and because it cannot abide in proximity of the Light, the darkness cannot be a means to gain the Genuine Article.

"The firm footing is the Word of God!" Amen to that. There is so much falsehood in both the world and the church. May we all be Berean like and seek the truth for ourselves.

I enjoyed your chart that applied His name with His provision.
