You Will Reap What You Sow
by Ernest Angley
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). Be careful what kind of seed you sow because the Word of God promises that you will reap what you sow. The devil will try to get you to sow the wrong kind of seed; but if you do, you’ll be in trouble. If you get careless and cut back on your prayer time, study of the Word or Bible fasting, you’ll plant the wrong kind of seed.
I make it a daily practice to sow seeds of love, and we must all do that in order to reap a wonderful love harvest. Love is the answer for everything; it makes good marriages, keeps families together and brings happiness to all. It enables parents to give their children godly discipline and to raise them the right way, the Bible way.
Good Seed Brings a Good Harvest
I grew up a farm boy, and I was used to sowing seeds. Dad would save the very best seeds from the potatoes, peanuts, cotton, wheat and all our other crops because it’s true in nature, too, that you will reap what you sow. Then he would fertilize the ground so that the good seed would produce.
Our family reaped an abundant harvest because we planted right. But when you don’t sow good seed, you’ll reap a bad harvest; and that’s especially true with children. My parents raised seven children, but they didn’t reap a lot of bad harvests from us because they planted only Bible truth. They taught us good character and how to treat people right, and they corrected us when we were wrong. They taught us to respect our elders and not to interrupt others. I thank God for the mom and dad we had; we were really blessed.
Sow Good Seed in Your Children
What kind of seed do you sow in your children? We didn’t have divine seed to sow in our fields, but my parents sowed divine seed in their children. They taught us to respect God, and that made us very different from other families. When we gathered around the dinner table, no one dared touch the food until Dad had blessed it. We were taught to be thankful for the food that God had provided.
We had a family altar in our home, and we gathered around it every night. No one was excused unless they had exams the next day and needed to study. Dad would read just a short scripture because he knew that the younger children would get restless, but it taught us to honor God and His Word. We closed our day with the right kind of seed—spiritual seeds of peace, joy, love and Heaven’s happiness.
We had such great love in our family that it didn’t seem right that we should ever be separated from one another; however, as children grow up, that time always comes. But when you have the right kind of training, you can leave the nest and bless other people. The right kind of seed brought great joy to our home, and people liked visiting our house because of it. We enjoyed sharing our happiness with others. The seed you sow today will bring a harvest tomorrow, but the kind of harvest depends on what you take time to sow.
Don’t let your children get away with doing wrong. Teach them to obey and do the right things and to never disgrace or dishonor their family name. Warn them to never bring reproach upon their parents or any other member of their family. We were taught to sow only the right kind of seed.
Bad Seeds Bring a Bad Harvest
What kind of seed do you carry around? If your seed makes you grouchy, then what kind of harvest will you reap? Don’t wonder why you’re unhappy; it’s because you’re sowing the wrong seed and not depending on God to help you. There are many unhappy marriages today because people don’t sow the right kind of seed or wait on God. They sow what they want and to whom they want, and then many will blame God for the bad harvest; but it’s not His fault. The Bible plainly says, For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up (Hosea 8:7).
I can’t emphasize enough that if you sow to the flesh, you’re going to reap corruption; whether you believe it or not is up to you. Then the seeds from your ill harvest will spring up into weeds of damnation for your soul making you ashamed of your children, yourself and anyone else you’ve influenced with your bad seed. It’s so sad to sow the wrong kind of seed when the Lord came and showed us how to sow the right kind.
Know What You’re Sowing
When you sow the right seed, then you can count on having a great harvest. On the farm, we knew what kind of seed we had to sow to give us the harvest of food we needed to get us through the rough winter months. Dad knew exactly what to plant, how to plant it and how much to plant to supply our needs.
If people would be as careful with their spiritual seed as my dad was with the physical seed, they would reap the abundance of life that Jesus brought. You must sow the same kind of seed that Jesus sowed or you won’t reap an abundant harvest. You’ll face only trouble and despair in your family, and it may cause your children to run away or turn to drugs and alcohol. Thank God, I didn’t feel the need for any of that. We had plenty of happiness, peace and joy in our home; and most importantly, we had love. Mom and Dad sowed the right seed whether we liked it or not because they knew we needed it—and they were right!
Some of you are sowing seeds of depression rather than sowing seeds of faith, and you’re not reaping a good harvest. But the Bible says, Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him (Hebrews 10:38).
My family ate a lot of bread, so we needed to have a big wheat harvest; but spiritual food is even more important. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). Feed your children the Word if you want a good harvest from them. Don’t talk to them about negative things; talk only faith just like my mama did. If I ever showed signs of getting sick, she’d give me a good faith–talk; and then she’d pray. I’d wake up the next morning feeling fine without missing a day of school. If Mom had given me only sympathy and medicine without faith, I’m sure I would have had the flu and missed school many times just like the rest of my schoolmates; but Mom always gave me faith. If I felt sick in the morning, Mom would pray for me before I left; and by the time I got to school, I was usually feeling fine. She planted the right seed.
Mom was the only person I ever heard say, “Honey, you had better be getting up your faith; the devil’s going to try you.” I’m sure she must have received that from the Lord, and I never forgot it. She was a praying woman who always sought the mind of God for her children. Whenever I needed the mind of God on some matter, I’d just go in and tell Mom about it and then go on my way knowing the answer would come. Talk positive to your children and let them know the Lord is alive. Even when I wasn’t saved, Mom fed me faith.
Don’t Sow to the Flesh
Seeds of love will do wonders for a child, and I was taught love. Good, old–time preachers and Sunday school teachers ministered love, peace, joy and happiness to the children of God because they believed in keeping God’s saints happy! Children of God, you could be happy, too, if you’d sow the right kind of seed; but instead, you’re constantly troubled and wondering what’s wrong with you. You’re not dining on the spiritual bread, the Word; and you’re sowing the wrong kind of seed. Stop catering to the flesh; always remember that the just shall live by faith, love, goodness, mercy, peace, gentleness and kindness. That’s the new and living way that Jesus brought. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh (Hebrews 10:19,20).
Jesus brought only the right kind of seed, and He never sowed to the flesh. However, He had a hard time getting the disciples to sow to the Spirit. You would expect that it was easy for them, because when Jesus was here in the flesh with His great love, He walked and talked with them. He was the Word made flesh, and the disciples saw His great miracles and people’s needs being supplied. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (John 1:14). Yet today, people will still doubt after seeing the glory and the miracles of God.
God’s Promises Are Conditional
I don’t make room for doubt, and I never accept any. I always talk positive to myself and give myself the Word of God, knowing that the Lord will take care of every situation. When you unload any burden, the Lord will take over. He said, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). If you’re sowing the right kind of seed, you can take that burden to Him through faith. But some people just insist on looking at the negative, and I can’t shake it out of them. I continue throwing out the good seed, but it’s up to them whether they accept it or reject it.
God promised that He would take our burdens; but in order for God to fulfill His promises, you have to meet their conditions. I meet the condition of each promise and leave my problems covered with the blood. I talk to God just like I would talk to you, and I tell Him about my needs and yours; and He answers my prayers. I know the Lord hears every word that I pray; and I can truly say, “Father, you always hear me.” Why?—Because Jesus came and sowed the right seed.
My parents picked up that seed, and then they sowed it in my life saying, Jesus never fails. When I was young, I had more faith in my mother’s prayers than I did in those of my preachers or Sunday school teachers. Mom showed me God’s love as well as human love, and she would let me know that everything was going to be all right. When you sow the right kind of seed, you will have divine trust and full assurance; and they will do everything for you that you need.
Trust in the Lord
Stop trying to do everything yourself. When you get saved, God doesn’t give you a do–it–yourself kit. The Lord said He knows what we need even before we ask. For your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him (Matthew 6:8). But He wants us to humble ourselves and ask; He wants us to bring our needs before Him. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). But if you don’t sow the right kind of seed, you’ll just pray a little prayer without really believing that anything will happen; you may not even believe that the Lord heard it. If you don’t believe anything will happen, then it usually doesn’t.
I expect results, and that’s why I have so many prayers answered. I simply go before God saying, Lord, I’m putting this under the blood, and I’m leaving it with you. Then I go on my way praising and glorifying His name; and I know that in His time, the answer will come. I know the Lord has heard my prayers; He will move, and the seed that He helped me to sow will bring forth results for Him.
Turn Your Enemies Over to God
It’s all so simple when you sow to the Spirit, but you can’t sow doubt or hate. If you sow seeds of hate, then that’s what you’ll reap; if you sow seeds of resentment and unforgiveness, those are what you’ll reap. I turn all of my enemies over to the good Lord, and I go marching on with joy. Why would I want to let them rob me of my happiness? Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord (Romans 12:19).
Give God a chance. Don’t let your enemies cause you to walk the floor or lose sleep. When you allow this, they’re winning; and the devil will make you a nervous wreck. But when you sow to the Spirit, the Lord will enable you to sleep in peace. I don’t let the devil get the best of me because I’m always ready for whatever God wants. I’m on duty twenty–four hours a day, and I’ll spend any amount of time with the Lord, sowing and reaping for Him.
Don’t Expect Sickness
Some people bring sickness into their lives by thinking and talking weak. They may think they’re going to get the flu because so many others have it, but I never think that because I believe in only thinking on good things. With God, you can be immune to everything around you; so stop avoiding sick people for fear you will catch what they have. Instead, pray for God to heal them. Throw out some good seeds of faith for yourself and them, too. That’s what my mother did, and it always blessed her. She always said, “I never helped anybody out of a valley that I didn’t come out with them.”
Mama was a real prayer warrior. If she was in the congregation when I was preaching, I would see her lips moving in prayer as she called God’s power down on me. She believed in talking to God, and I’ve never seen anybody who loved the Word of God more than she did. If Mom was ever sick, I would grab the family Bible and lay it on her; even though I was just a sinner boy, Mom had planted the seed.
One morning, Mama was dying with pneumonia. Every breath rattled so loud that you could hear it throughout the house, and I was really scared. I don’t remember whether or not she could talk, but she motioned for me to get the Bible. She opened it up and just held it until a preacher came in and prayed for her; then I stood and watched as she was completely healed. When the preacher left, Mama got up, got dressed and went into the kitchen to make breakfast, singing and praising God. That’s what God can do!
Believe the Whole Truth
We had great miracles in our home because many family members sowed good seed, and we all reaped the harvest. My parents always made sure that we were taught the whole truth. When I was born, my family belonged to a church that believed once in grace always in grace—that eternal security was unconditional and that no one could live free from sin. But even then, my parents taught us the truth. They didn’t say anything about it to the preachers, the teachers or other members of the church; they just taught us what they believed according to the Bible. The soul that sinneth, it shall die (Ezekiel 18:20). They believed in living free from sin just as the Bible teaches.
My dad was a great biblical scholar, and he knew the Bible just like the prophets of old did because he studied it for hours. He was not a preacher, but he was a wonderful Sunday school teacher; and people loved to hear him speak. He would really prepare, and he always had a message from the Lord.
Take Time with your Children
Dad paid close attention to everything the servant of God preached from the pulpit, and he taught us to listen, too. That’s why I knew so much about the Bible. When I got saved, the seed was already in my life; and it brought forth an immediate harvest. God saved me, filled me with the good Holy Ghost and started preaching through me in just five or six weeks. People said that I didn’t preach like a young preacher but more like a well–seasoned man of God. It was all from God; the Lord would take me over, and His words would roll forth from my mouth. Mom and Dad had prepared me without ever knowing that I would preach the Gospel—and they did it by sowing the right seed.
I don’t ever remember not knowing right from wrong, and I could always separate sin from righteousness. Again, it was because of the kind of home I was raised in. Mom was never too busy for her children. No matter what she was doing, she always listened to our concerns and never acted like any problem was meaningless or too small. She took all of her children seriously; and if she didn’t have an answer at once, she’d take it to the Lord. She had planted her faith seed in us, and we knew God would give her the answer. That’s why it’s so important to sow the right seed, and Jesus came to show us how to do it.
You would think that the disciples would have learned that lesson much faster than they did; but because they didn’t sow the right seed, it slowed down the work of Jesus when He was here. He even had to stay on Earth for forty days after His resurrection to teach them the necessity of sowing nothing but the right seed.
Reject Seeds of Doubt
Now Thomas was really quite a case. He was so full of doubt that he stayed away from the other apostles for eight days after Jesus had been resurrected. But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe (John 20:24,25). Obviously, Thomas had been accepting the wrong kind of seed, and he was living by feelings rather than by faith. He knew that the Roman soldier’s spear had pierced Jesus’ side; and he said, “I’ll have to thrust my hand into His side; and I’ll have to put my fingers into the nail prints or I won’t believe.” But when Jesus appeared and came through the door without even having to open it, Thomas cried, My Lord and my God (John 20:28).
Jesus declared that He was the Son of God, and He proved it. He had warned the disciples about His coming death but specifically pointed out that no one could take His life. I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again (John 10:17,18). Jesus told the disciples He would be resurrected on the third day, but they didn’t listen. From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day (Matthew 16:21).
Cultivate the Good Seed
The disciples didn’t watch over the seed they were given or let it grow in their spirits; therefore, they were sowing to the flesh while Jesus was sowing to the Spirit. John, the youngest apostle, was the only one who sowed completely to the Spirit while Jesus was alive. Young people can be everything the Lord wants them to be if they will accept the Word, and John accepted the living Word. It lived with him; and he knew without a doubt that Jesus was the Christ, the Lamb of God.
John was the Beloved of Jesus, and he had accepted the Lord’s seeds of love. He was so filled with divine love that when Jesus was dying on the Cross, He entrusted His mother into John’s care. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home (John 19:25–27).
John deeply loved Jesus, and that’s why the Lord was able to pour so many books of love through him. Where did he get that love?—From the seed that Jesus sowed. John patterned his life after Jesus, and he sowed the same great seeds of love. None of the disciples wrote about the love of God like John did. He went deep into the depths of God’s love. But John drew from that well of living water called the Bible, the Word of God. He clung to everything that Jesus said, and he marched boldly on. While the other disciples were full of fear at Christ’s trial and Crucifixion, John was there at the foot of the Cross.
John the Baptist also had the right seed, and he recognized that Jesus was the Lamb of God. The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world (John 1:29). John the Baptist had the Holy Ghost from his mother’s womb. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb (Luke 1:15).
What Do You Sow?
What kind of seed are you sowing? Do you sow seeds of envy, strife or resentment? Are you easily hurt? Do you get offended at the Word of God or a preacher who is really bearing down on you? He may be warning you about things you can’t do if you want to go to Heaven; but if you think you can do what you please, then you’re sowing the wrong kind of seed. You’re sowing to the flesh, and you’re headed for great trouble.
How much do you sacrifice for the Lord, and how well do you keep His love commandments? Do you walk in step with Jesus? If not, you can’t sow the right kind of seed. When you’re in step with Jesus, your spirit will be filled with praises; and they won’t be just idle words. You’ll be praising God from your innermost being, thanking Him for the great harvest and for His results. Those praises will bring life just as the rains brought life to our crops on the farm.
Do you sow seeds of self–control? If not, then you’re sowing the wrong kind of seed and reaping the wrong kind of harvest. People who lack self–control definitely don’t act right, and they claim that they just can’t help doing certain things. They need to take a look at what they’re sowing because only the right kind of seed will keep self under subjection. Self must heed the call to pray and fast. Jesus said, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting (Mark 9:29).
Seeds of Regret
Those who are lost and undone may feel the need to go out and sow their wild oats and have fun while they can, but don’t follow them. The Lord said we should remember Him in our youth so that when we get older, we won’t regret the things we have done or reap the wrong harvest. Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
Many young people today are going astray and sowing to the flesh; and many of them are reaping a bad harvest in the form of AIDS, HIV and other deadly diseases. They have sowed the wrong kind of seed, but they don’t want to hear about it. Unfortunately, many parents today were from homes where the right kind of seed was not sown, and they have nothing of God to share with their children. They weren’t warned that sowing to the flesh and going the devil’s way would bring nothing but trouble. That’s why it’s so important for you to teach your children the right way.
Warn them to be careful in choosing their friends because that’s the kind of person they will end up marrying. It means everything to get the right mate in order to be happy. My mom and dad got the right one, and they found great happiness in each other. I used to love for Mama to tell me the story of their marriage and their honeymoon, and she would never get tired of telling it.
Do You Sow Good Seed?
The kind of seed you sow determines the kind of life you will have. You can make your own happiness through Jesus Christ or you can make your own sorrow, heartache and despair. Jesus showed us how to live when He left the Father’s throne and came to dwell among evil men and women—but He always sowed the right kind of seed. Jesus had divine peace, happiness and joy; and even when He was hanging on the Cross, He found joy in thinking about you and me and all the other souls He was dying for. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus paid the ultimate price so we could be in Heaven one day.
If you’re walking around in despair, losing control of yourself or failing God in any way, then you need to check your seed. If you say things you shouldn’t say, listen to things you shouldn’t listen to or hurt people with your words, then there’s something wrong. Where are the seeds of peace and love? The Lord said that if we don’t have the seed of love, we’re nothing. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity [love], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity [love], I am nothing (I Corinthians 13:1,2). God’s love multiplies, and there’s always plenty of it to share.
Always Serve Jesus
There’s never a shortage of divinity, and it will encourage you to spend time sowing to and blessing others and praying for the unsaved all over the world. Many people have no one to pray for them, so I specifically set time aside to remember them. I was surrounded with praying people when I was growing up, and I wouldn’t trade my home life for anything. My family reaped great spiritual harvests.
I really didn’t know how blessed I was when I was young. I knew my family was different, and I knew that none of the boys I ran around with had a home like mine. If I ate at one of their homes, many times there would be no blessing; and I’d feel like not eating. I was taught to thank God for your food before you ate it. My parents sowed only good seed to their children, and their reward will be great. Four of their children are in Heaven with them now—my older brother, my two older sisters and a younger sister—and others are on the way. They were the first ones to tell us about Jesus, and Mama was the first one to sing His songs of love to us. I never remember not having plenty of love.
Every child needs love, but many don’t receive it in their homes. That’s why so many young people have turned to drugs, alcohol and even committed suicide. A child has to have someone who loves them and someone they can love in return. Love is trusting, and they must have someone they trust to take their problems to. Children can’t see Jesus or physically get to Him, but they can see Jesus in you. I saw Jesus in my mom, and I’d take my troubles to her. Then Mama would go to the Lord for me, and I knew everything would be all right. I had nothing to fear and nothing to worry about.
Sow Calvary’s Love
Check yourself daily to make sure you’re not sowing any ill seed. Don’t hurt people or speak unkindly to them; don’t try to even up the score or get the best of them, and don’t talk about others. If you can’t say something good about someone, then don’t say anything because you’ll reap what you sow. If you’re a busybody or a gossip, you’ll reap the same thing. People may start telling things about you that aren’t true, and no one likes that. You have to be careful; the Lord said we’re to be perfect in His sight, and that includes being perfect in speech. For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body (James 3:2).
No guile was ever found in the mouth of Jesus. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth (I Peter 2:21,22). And the Bible says we’re supposed to follow in His steps. Follow thou me (John 21:22).
You will reap what you sow; that must ring loud and clear in your spirit. As we travel to the mission fields, people in every nation fall in love with us because love begets love; and we show them great love. We visit AIDS houses, prisons and hospitals; and we take with us the healing balm of Calvary’s great love. Nothing can beat the love of Calvary, and there isn’t anything that divine love can’t heal. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings (Malachi 4:2).
We Must Plant the Seed
God the Father planted the right seed, His Only Begotten for you and me. If He had not loved us so much, we couldn’t have the life that we have now or the eternal one to come. But when we sow the right seed, it helps us to receive healings for soul, mind and body; it brings all of Heaven to us.
Consider the parable of the sower. Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear (Matthew 13:3–9). Jesus let us know that the seed won’t always fall in fertile soil; but as long as we’re sowing the right seed, it’s not our fault if it lands on stony ground. We hope it will land on good ground so it can take root and bring forth a harvest.
Ripe for Harvest
On the mission fields, we bring forth a harvest wherever we go as our people minister on the busy streets and in any establishment that they can. They sow so much of God’s power, anointing, love and grace during the day that we reap an immediate harvest in the evening as we minister to thousands of people who attend the services. Two of my associate pastors also preach in the foreign prisons where many inmates receive salvation after hearing the truth, and some have even been removed from death row as a result. They reach some of the most hardened criminals as they sow the right seed, and the devils that have bound them have to flee.
We have the right seed from the God of miracles, and boldly we’re going forth to sow it everywhere. The Bible calls us to go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). We carry the message of God’s great love and tell them that Bible salvation brings freedom from all powers of the devil. There’s power in the Word of God, and that’s the Seed of Life!
Get Rid of the Bad Seed
Many people have been sowing to the flesh and are now reaping corruption. Stop wondering why your life is like it is or why your children are growing up like they are and realize that it’s because you’re reaping what you’ve sown. Get those seeds of corruption out of your flesh, out of your mind and out of your heart. Ask the Lord to destroy all the unholy seed, and tell Him you want only holy, divine seed to sow.
If you’re unsaved, lift your hands and pray this prayer: Oh, God, I have seeds of corruption; I’ve been sowing to the flesh. I’m so lost in the dark, and the sun of Heaven isn’t shining upon me; an ill harvest is coming forth. But you said that if I would repent, you would forgive me and destroy all of the bad seed; and you would give me good seed to sow. I’m so sorry that I have failed you, God; I’m so sorry that I have been consumed with the flesh, but I won’t be anymore! I believe the blood of Jesus washes away all of my sins. Come into my heart, Jesus! Come in!
If you meant that prayer, then you can say, Hallelujah! Jesus is mine! Thank God Almighty, I’m free! I have the right kind of seed; I will sow to the Spirit, and I will reap life everlasting. Lord, you promised; and you keep your promises!
Take a Miracle
Now that you’ve given your heart to the Lord, let Him heal you today. You may have AIDS or any other kind of deadly disease, but Jesus heals all manner of afflictions. There’s no death in Jesus Christ; He is life, and He is the healer.
Lord, I bring the people to you. These gifts are in my life, and you’re flowing your power through me to heal the people. You’re the healer. I can’t operate your gifts; your Holy Spirit operates them through me. In the blood–name of Jesus, I curse AIDS, HIV, diabetes, lung trouble, heart trouble, leprosy and strokes. Touch the children who were born deformed or with just part of a brain; you’ve completely delivered so many cases like that and made them intelligent beings. Heal! in the blood–name of Jesus. Heal!
Lord, I have sown the right kind of seed for the people in this sermon. If they will take these words and use the seed of the Word, they will get mighty results.
Watch as you and your children get well, and then send me your testimonies so they can bless others. Sow to the Spirit and reap blessings daily while here on Earth and eternal life in Heaven for evermore!
