|Obama Reaps What He Sows|
There is a true story told of two men who thought it would be OK to break the law and go duck hunting two weeks before the season opened. They took with them a retriever, a brand new truck, decoys, plenty of ammunition and a couple sticks of dynamite. When they first arrived at the lake they noticed a big problem: The lake they chose was frozen over.
One of them had a great idea. He would go to his truck, get a stick of dynamite, blow a big hole in the middle of the lake, throw down the decoys and then have a heyday shooting all the little duckies. So he did just that. He went to his truck, pulled out the stick of dynamite, lit the fuse and then threw it right smack in the center of the lake.
However, he forgot one thing; his retriever was there. As faithful as he was, he ran after the stick of dynamite, put it in his mouth and then ran toward his owner. The owner, in fear of being blown up, grabbed his rifle and began shooting at the retriever in hopes he would not come back to him. The retriever was scared away and ran right under the brand new truck.
Guess what blew up? You got it – the retriever and the brand new truck. His breaking of the law was the very thing that nipped him right in the butt. The things that blew up were the very evidence of his guilt.
And so it is with us every day. If you were to take a kernel of wheat and sow it into the soil, you would reap wheat. If you sow wheat, you will not reap barley. And in the same way, if you sow good seed you will reap good fruit; and bad seed, bad fruit. Yet there are some who think they can put one over on the Lord who sees all – they sow bad seeds into their lives and think they will reap a good harvest. How foolish!
If you sow lawlessness, then you will reap lawlessness. And that goes right in line with godlessness. You sow godlessness, and you reap hell – literally!
It is a fixed Law that you reap the same kind of seed that you sow. It is a Law unto itself. We might as well try to blot the sun out of the heavens as to blot this truth out of the Word of God!
In fact, your present-day circumstance is the fruit of your present-day field that you have sown. Good or bad.
You reap what you sow.
“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
The analogy above speaks of us as individuals before God. Next week I will bring the law of sowing and reaping to a national level.
The video below gives actual accounts from history that prove God is not mocked, whether it is tyrants and dictators (Mussolini, etc.), men in the Bible (Herod, Pilate, etc.), or the Senate of Rome, which would not submit to Jesus Christ, the meek King of glory.
