Seasons: Reaping What We Sow

Seasons: Reaping What We Sow

To prevent confusion about the reasons why we are not seeing a natural manifestation of the promises of God due to Jesus's seeds, it's important to know which season of life we are in, what seeds we've sown, and whether or not we've sown into the territory God wants us to sow in. If as born-again believers we desire to be a disciple (follower) of Jesus Christ, then there are seasons that we will have to go through before we reap a harvest. It is important to mention that harvest will come, whether we sow good seeds or bad seeds, seeds of obedience or seeds of disobedience. If we refuse to be obedient to God, for example what is written in Galatians 5:22-23 then we shouldn't be surprised if we reap thorns (e.g. thorn finances, thorn kids, thorn relationships, thorn life etc.) Galatians 5:22-23 reads "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."  Our season of harvest is an indication of our obedience to the word, not the seasons of soil, and the seasons of sowing. In Matthew 7: 17-20 Jesus says "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them."

There are four types of soil according to Jesus Christ in Matthew 13:3-9 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer (God) went out to sow his seed (the word) As he was scattering the seed (the word),
  • Soil #1: Some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 
  • Soil #2: Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. [My notes: Those who fall away from the faith and renounce Christianity, never was rooted in the word of God. The proof text is in Hebrews 6:3-7]
  • Soil #3: Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 
  • Soil #4: Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
According to  Matthew 13:3-9 only those whose seed falls on good soil, produce a crop, more then it was sown. Those whose seed falls along the path, rocky places, and thorns, will not reap a good spiritual harvest, even if they reap a natural harvest. According to Exodus 34:21 the seasons of soil and harvest are the seasons when we rest. Now this doesn't mean that we will not have to do anything spiritually. What it does mean, is that in comparison to the season of sowing things will be easier for us spiritually.
