4-Man vs Scripture - Sow a Seed
4-Man vs Scripture - Sow a Seed
Today with so many churches, each with their own way of raising money, we must understand the scriptural truths about money to avoid being fleeced by those that Jesus and the apostles warned us would come in His name but would be wolves, out to entrap us and lead us away from the narrow path that leads to His eternal kingdom. This series is to expose those people and teachings that do this.
Please Read this Before we Begin. Here we teach scriptural truths that are not taught most places. These are essential truths that you cannot be a real disciple of Christ without properly understanding.
Because of this fact you must follow the scripture “do not be deceived my beloved brethren” and see that YOU are not deceived. In order to not be deceived you must not believe what I or any other man wants to teach you unless and until it has been confirmed in scripture and by the Holy Spirit of God to you Personally as Truth. That is your responsibility no matter who is teaching you.
I will answer to God for what I teach but you alone will answer for what YOU believe.
Reason for this Study
Many “ministries?” use the phrase Sow a Seed Into our Ministry” if you want to be blessed financially. We will look at the origin and use of this phrase according to scripture to determine if it is of Christ for this (His) age.
We are near the end of this age, as attested to by the signs of the times that scripture warns us to be aware of, the thing that must be happening in the sons of God that most do not understand is that WE MUST be living in this world but not be OF this world. We must be changing into SPIRITUAL beings and not remaining as the carnal beings as we were created. Those that cannot or will not make this conversion here on this earth WILL NOT enter the eternal Kingdom of God on the new earth at the judgment as there will be no unrighteousness (carnal actions) allowed in the eternal kingdom. No matter what any man tells you this is a scriptural truth you must understand and apply to your life. You will find this to be true if you understand scripture correctly, meaning if you are baptized in the Holy Spirit of God as required by Christ to be His disciple. Carnal man do not teach, believe or possess this attribute therefore cannot grant it to you as they profess. Man can only give you what he possesses. Carnal man possesses carnality (including following a false jesus and a false holy spirit as Jesus warned). Spiritual man possesses Spirituality. Only a real disciple of Christ can make disciples for Christ, no others have been given that authority. A Spiritual person will lead you to Christ alone. A carnal person will lead you to man or what they call a “church”, himself or those he follows, He comes in the Name of Christ but is a liar as Christ has warned us and will lead you to destruction and not to redemption..
Matt 28:18-20 " And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Though many will stop reading here because this will insult their beliefs, I am going to say this before we begin the actual study because it is a scriptural truth you must understand. NO MONEY changes hands in the real church of Jesus Christ. There is no need giving to some man to distribute anything for you because you, each individual, have replaced that man. As the minister of Christ (part of the royal priesthood) it is YOUR responsibility to hear the Holy Spirit and do as directed in each situation you find yourself involved. You have no need for any man but Christ when you follow the Holy Spirit of God.
Yes real disciples may give some to each other when there is a need, there is No Money exchanged in His church because there is no such thing as what is known as the ” church system “ today in the world. The real church of Jesus Christ is simply the invisible world of His disciples and their acts as they follow Jesus through the leading of the Holy Spirit of God.. There is no man made hierarchy. There are no clergy in this age as all disciples are part of the ministry of Christ and as they follow Christ alone, within His Church all is perfect, because He is perfect and his disciples are a reflection of Him as they follow the Holy Spirit of God.. Remember in Christ ALL THINGS became NEW and all old things passed away.
The clergy in this age is not a separate group, that was ended at the cross. Some men, men with special giftings are given as servants to the whole body of Christ, ONLY until they are matured. They are according to Paul, bondservants and not to draw men to themselves but to Christ alone. The men mentioned in Eph 4:11 are to be bondervants, no title, no special treatment (they are tools to be used by the saints however that are needed), no salary, expenses, cars, airplane, boat etc.. The Apostle Paul never said he was Apostle Paul like the modern self appointed and man anointed men that have anointed themselves with a title and position that does not exist, have it all upside down,if they were of God they would understand they are on the bottom as bondservants and not on top. On top ALL ARE EQUAL and above them.
1 Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
Eph 4:11-16 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ — 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
Now that we have explained some of the scripture truths you must understand to follow this series we will get to the subject of seed faith collecting as used by some in the 'church system'.
Seed Faith as taught in parts of the church system of man
Seed faith is a means that is used by some of the apostate church system of man (aka synagogue of satan) use to beg for money from their congregation. It simply stated is a false promise by apostate man, attributed to God that if you give to him in faith that you will be blessed abundantly for supporting this person's “ministry. Though Jesus warns us about all the false teachers and prophets that will come in His name to deceive you. Multiple thousands continue to allow themselves to be deceived and fleeced by these FALSE PASTORS etc. As I said above, no money ever changes hands in the true Church of Jesus Christ. Any time that what professes to be of God asks for money it is your warning that it is not of God. There are no salaries, cars, boats, planes or such other, all we can expect is the necessities of food clothing and shelter Most will have a -Gasp JOB. Show me a real bondservant in scripture that gets a salary. A bondservant is a slave by his choice and depends on his owner for Everything, he has no choices of his own as he trusts his owner, not himself. I this case he follows Jesus, his will is to do God's will.
To be areal disciple of Christ you must understand that if you follow any man other than the Man Jesus Christ you cannot be a disciple of Christ. The real disciple of Christ studies the scriptures with the Holy Spirit leading and providing the correct understanding. The church christian is taught to and follows man and his doctrines while being told and believing he is following Christ. The reason so few will find the narrow gate and path is because the majority want someone ( a man) to lead them, but Jesus commands us to follow Him by following the Holy Spirit of God that He is led by.
Mark 13:21-23 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or, 'Look, He is there!' do not believe it. 22 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 23 But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.
Rom 16:17-20 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
Seed faith is a teaching not found in scripture. But invented by and used by carnal man as a way of manipulating money from those who profess to be of God. It is used ONLY by those carnal man without the Holy Spirit of God because the Holy Spirit of God would never let a Disciple of Christ use it. It is fruit of the carnal mind of apostate man and Christ rejects it. It is just another of the ways that apostate man come in the name of Jesus to steal money from those that scripture calls simple.
Virtually all the scriptures they use to “prove” their false doctrine relate to growing plants and can in no way be appropriately used to beg for money as they do. Seed faith is just a method of begging in the church system. Have I offended you? Good. But that is exactly what it is and how Jesus sees it. Nowhere in scripture can you findthe disciples of Christ doing this or even a mention of it. You see a few times where a collection was taken but never for themselves, it was always for others in need. Remember they were under persecution most of the time.
All the ways that the church system use to collect money are actually methods of begging, which God abhors.
25 I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
1 Tim 6:6-10 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
These false ministers and apostles (man appointed and anointed) are agents of satan and are using the Name of Jesus to mislead the “simple”. Remember His words of warning “do not be deceived”.
They use the example of sowing seed to get a crop as their lead. But when you sow a seed for a crop you are not depending on a carnal man. You do your part, feed and water and weed and then God takes care of the rest. But when you give money to a carnal man, a man that by the very fact that he is begging for money disqualifies him from being of God, you are depending on that man not on God.
Do you see how foolish it is to send money to these false pastors or prophets or whatever they call themselves?
Do you see why Jesus called those that listen to, follow or send money to these scoundrels “simple”. They simply believe whatever fits their desire, in this case their love of money.
