…a Bible student's notes…

My personal notes from Tuesday’s study…

Not very long…..and, as always, better to have been there because there were all kinds of discussions in between the lines!

(Gen 1:11) And God said––Let the land put–forth vegetation––herb yielding seed, fruit–tree, bearing fruit, after its kind, whose seed is within it on the land. And it was so. 12) And the land brought–forth vegetation––herb yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing fruit, whose seed is within it (in which is its seed), after its kind. And God saw that it was, good.

You have just read a profound verse!  For one thing, it is in the “seed plot” of the Bible – the beginning.  This principle of “seed, after its kind” will never change in the plant world.  “Image” of God and “image” of Adam will appear later, but this principle of “kind” will still rule even in the human world.

 

HARVEST

  1. Principle – laws, facts
  2. Present tense – we are sowing
  3. Past tense – we have sown
  4. Promise – future, hope
  5. Process – first the blade, then the ear…..
  6. Perception – ours and God’s

 

  1John 3:9 No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God

We either believe this principle from the beginning – or not.

 (Note to me:  read other “seed” verses in chapter 1)

(Gen 1:29) And God said––Lo! I have given to you––every herb yielding seed which is on the face of all the land, and every tree wherein is the fruit of a tree, yielding seed,––to you, shall it be, for food; (bearing seed . . . yielding seed. Heb, “seeding seed”)

(INTERLUDE: FYI – The expression of the figure of speech, “seeding seed,” is also used in Genesis 2:15-17 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die [or “in dying you shall die”].) Now – that is a very profound expression that will help us study “What is ‘death’ and ‘life?’”  LATER – hopefully.

  1. We Reap Only What Has Been Sown
  2. We Reap the Same In Kind As We Sow
  3. We Reap in a Different Season than We Sow
  4. We Reap More Than We Sow
  5. We Reap In Proportion to What We Sow
  6. We Reap the Full Harvest of the Good Only if We Persevere;
    The Evil Comes to Harvest on Its Own
  7. We Can’t do Anything About Last Year’s Harvest,
  8. We Reap the Right Others Have Sown
  9. The Growing Season Needs Time
  10.  We do not reap if seed does not die!
  11.  Growth can be imperceptible

Law 1:
We Reap Only What Has Been Sown

Life is filled with choices, choices that affect us on an everyday basis in everything we do which means our everyday choices are not without significance. Our choices affect us and others in dramatic ways whether we see it immediately or not. While earth remains, no man will mock God by changing for even one time these laws of the harvest.

Because we are constantly sowing, we need the exhortation in these verses:

Ephesians 5:15-18. Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipa­tion, but be filled with the Spirit.

Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days, That we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom.

Why do we need wisdom? So we can make wise choices!
