8.6.17







Natural success:
Why:

  1. Psalm 68:10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
  2. James 1:25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
  3. Psalm 65:11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

Success above and beyond Supernatural:

  1. Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Good Success is God extended!

Good is simply God with an additional “O”!

We will talk about the law of Multiplication later

Folks have to label it something so they call it Super natural:

The Present Day World-Viewer sees God in this light:

Identification The Word speaks of all that have the assumed power to predict or forecast with a power beyond themselves:
(Jeremiah 27:9 So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your dreamers, your fortune-tellers, or your sorcerers, who are saying to you, ‘You shall not serve the king of Babylon.’)


  • Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever

Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

  • Isaiah 1:19-20 (KJV) 19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: 20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

  • 1 Kings 20:3 Thy silver and thy gold is mine; thy wives also and thy children, even the goodliest, are mine.

  • Haggai 2:8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts.


What appears SUPERNATURAL to the present day world viewer, is nothing but a NATURAL, mind blowing experience to the Believer!'


The first century Believer and those affected by the Jesus’s life here on Earth lived in what is referred to as agrarian societies, working in the fields, raising crops, livestock etc. That is why many of the parables spoken by Christ are about farming life.


My granddad was a farmer and he spoke that way as well.

When studying the Word of God you’ll find it making reference to sowing and reaping Sowing and reaping is a law of worldly nature or, “natural law”.


  • Look at Genesis 1:12 On the third day of creation, God commanded the earth to bring forth living plants “bearing seed” and fruit “with seed in it”.

In verse 29 we read that “these plants were then given to man for food. Ever since the beginning, man has understood the process of sowing and reaping and has applied it to his benefit.


God uses the law of sowing and reaping to bestow His blessing.

Look at: Matthew 5:45 God’s blessing comes generally to the whole world as He sends sun and rain to the just and the unjust .

Many times God’s blessings come more customer designed to His liking.


Look at Isaac. In Genesis 26:12 says that Isaac sowed a crop and received a hundredfold in one season because the Lord targeted him for blessing. When we loot at Exodus 23:19 and Leviticus 23:10, we find that Israel would celebrate yearly with what the called the Feast of First fruits, “(NO NOT FIRST THURSDAY)”, where they would bring the Lord an offering.


In Leviticus 26:16, God warned Israel that, if they forsook Him and pursued idols, the law of sowing and reaping would be suspended and their crops would fail.


Judah felt God’s sting for withholding on more than one occasion (Jeremiah 12:13; Micah 6:15).

Sowing and reaping is also a law of the spiritual world.

Notice I said Spiritual not Supernatural.


The Word reminds us in Gal 6:8

It is more than just an agricultural principle.

It is an axiom of life that we reap what we sow.


Galatians 6:7 reminds us, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. Beloved we reap what we sow!

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.

There are natural consequences to our actions.

Good and bad!


The world operates under the law of cause and effect.

There is no way around it: every time we choose an action, we have chosen the consequences of what we’ve sown. Sowing and reaping implies a wait.


Nothing good grows overnight. It takes patience to reap the fruit of ones labor.


When the Bible likens the ministry to planting, watering and reaping (1 Corinthians 3:6), it suggests a length of time. God will bring forth fruit to His glory in His time. Until then, we faithfully labor in His field (Matthew 9:38), knowing that “at the proper time we will reap a harvest, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9; see also Psalm 126:5).

We reap in kind to what we sow.


Planting Peach seeds should bring you a peachy harvest, many of us are reaping everything but peachy! I wonder why?

Those who sow anger should expect to receive what anger naturally produces.


Galatians 6:8 says, “Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Living a life of carnality and sin and expecting to inherit heaven is akin to planting cockle burrs and waiting for roses.


This principle works both positively and negatively.

Sowing righteousness reaps a sure reward” (Proverbs 11:18).

Sowing injustice reaps calamity” (Proverbs 22:8). We reap proportionately to what we sow.


The rule is, the more seed planted, the more fruit harvested.

The Bible applies this law to our giving. Those who show generosity will be blessed more than those who don’t.


“Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Corinthians 9:6).


This principle is not concerned with the amount of the gift but with the spirit in which it is given. God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7), and even the widow’s mites are noticed by our Lord (Luke 21:2-3).


We reap more than what we sow.

In other words, the law of sowing and reaping is related to the law of multiplication. Jesus spoke of seed that brought forth “a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” (Matthew 13:8).


One grain of wheat produces a whole head of grain. In the same way, one little fib can produce an out-of-control frenzy of falsehoods, fallacies, and fictions.


Sow the wind and reap the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7).

Positively, one kind deed can result in a blessing to last a lifetime.

Sowing and reaping is used as a metaphor for death and resurrection.


When Paul discusses the doctrine of the resurrection of the body, he uses the analogy of planting a seed to illustrate physical death.

“The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:42-44).


A seed may “die” when it falls to the ground, but that is not the end of its life (John 12:24).


Its not Supernatural it is Natural life.

John 10:10 says: The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
