Topic: ACTION AND REACTION
Scripture: 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. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. – Gal 6:7-9(KJV)
A lot of believers today still believe that God is angry with sinners, That God is ready and will punish every sinner when the commit sin. Even the calamity of Convid19 epidemic we have around the world today has been called the anger of God. In this teaching I will let you know that it is not true. That was a wrong believe. It is character assassination on God who is a caring and a loving father.
The word of God says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son” – John 3:16. Does that mean He is no more loving the world again? Remember we were not a saint before he loved us and even gave His son and His son died for us. – Ephesians 2:5 says “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” Romans 5:8 says “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Does that mean that God is not more loving us anymore because of sin? Has He unloved us? He did all He did why we were still in our sin ok. That did not add up. It was a wrong believe that God is angry with anyone commit sin. The truth remains that God hates the sin but loves the sinner. He will on one day to come judge the sin on every sinner who failed to repent of the sin but not now. This is a time of grace. Grace and judgement do not go together ok! – Hebrews 9:27 says “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” this is well explained in 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10
The question now is who punishes people when they commit sin on earth? Please Note that it is not God. He cannot punish you twice for the same offence. His own punishment is at the end of life or after death not while alive this is called the grace of our lord Jesus Christ – 2 Peter 3:9. Hear this: Among many laws of success that we must not down play is the law of action and reaction. This gives back to you whatever you have given out not in the same measure on a normal circumstance more than you have given.
I love what was said in Luke 6:31 that “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise” can we draw a big lesson here today that we are responsible solely for whatever good or bad we experienced in life on a daily basis because life answers to seed time and harvest time. Action and reaction. Our reading says God can’t be mocked whatever you sow you shall reap. It further said where you sow is where you shall also reap in verse 8. Eccl 11:3 says “…in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be” (KJV).
This means that nature have a way to reward your actions. It is called seed time and harvest time. This is the reason you must watch your actions. What you do daily, because you will harvest it. It is not God. It is the way nature is programmed. Sin will sink the sinner one day that is it. Even if you have not reaped whatever you have been sowing or doing for people doing good please you should never give up as said in verse 9. Because your harvest can’t be lost though it may tarry but it shall surely come that is what the bible tells us in Habak 2:3 and Heb 10:35-37.
I declare that I am born again unto good works. I am a workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Therefore I work good, live good and behave well and harvest good daily in Jesus mighty name.
Lord God; I receive grace never to give up on doing good things, worship you, give to the progress of your work and needy and to pray every day. I command my harvest to come fast this year in Jesus name. Amen
