-Do we really reap what
Thank God we generally
do not. The universal laws have been set up to be merciful:.Psalms
103:10 "He has not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according
to our iniquities.".Why?
Only set patterns of ours
in the physical:.Psalms
2Timothy 1:9. But
our lives, our emotions, what it is that makes us what we are, both good
and bad, reflect results of our decisions. Our own deeds always correct
us, bringing us to
the point of decision to become different, to become better.
The law of the universe is
set that way by the
Great Infinite One, so we can
learn to be better. That's why we are here on earth!
The character is always affected.
We reap from the precise automatic laws of the universe the Infinite Intelligence
has set up:.Galatians
6:7; Job 34:11.
In knowing this, can you
see the out? By changing ourselves for the better (what the Bible calls
repentance), we alter our future. Life can finally be filled with continuous
joy. Of course, you may not believe that, and that is where you presently
are in your mind, and you can expect more of the same that has brought
you to be the person you presently are.
All in the universe is one
underneath it all. Underneath the atom it's all the same energy. What you
do to another, you have 'done' to yourseldf, in that you have contributed
either negativity of positivity into the 'mass mind', the invisible but
real energy field of the universe. Since this energy field's basic operating
frequency is that of love (528Hz)
the negativity will leave it and come back amplified to the one having
uncorrected negatives we may have sown in another's life can certainly
come back to haunt us:.2Thessalonians
1:6 "Seeing it is a righteous thing with God.(the
Invisible Loving Energy which sustains all
recompense tribulation to them that trouble you." Hebrews
10:30,31 "For we know him that has said, Vengeance belongs unto me,
I will recompense, says the Lord....."
It is important to be careful
regarding interactions with others, and to clear things up as soon as possible
if they go awry:.Ephesians
4:26 "Be you angry, and sin not.(or,
'if you are angry,
do not forget
and miss the mark of love'). Let
not the sun go down upon your wrath." 2Corinthians
7:10,11 "For behold this selfsame thing, that you sorrowed after a
godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves,
yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea,
what zeal, yea, what revenge.(in
this case, the man vindicated himself, seeing how wrong he was and changing)!
In all things you have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter."
That is why God tells us:.Romans
12:17 "Recompense to no man evil for evil.(have
a higher standard). Provide things
honest in the sight of all men." Philippians
2:3 ".....in lowliness of mind let each.esteem
other better than themselves.".See
4:14 "Alexander the coppersmith did me.(Paul).much
evil. The Lord rewards him
to his works.".Paul
knew how the universe worked, and was content to, as they say, 'leave it
in God's hands'.
But does not Proverbs
24:11 say we reap what we sow? And what about:.Jeremiah
17:10 "I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every
man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings.".In
a positive sense, this is true, but not in the negative, as you will soon
Many think God rewards
our negatives with even more of them, but:.Zechariah
1:6,13,16,17 "But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants
the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? And they returned
and said: Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to
our ways and according to our doings, so hath He dealt with us. And the
LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable
words. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with
mercies.....My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad and
LORD shall yet comfort ....."; Psalms
126:5; Jeremiah 12:13; Hosea
8:7; 10:12; Micah
6:15; Matthew 6:26; Luke
12:24; John 4:38; 1Corinthians
9:11; Psalms 49:10; Proverbs
13:22; Ecclesiastes 6:1,2.
But God does allow bad things
to happen if we are not on the qui
vive, such as?
Christ is the one who is
to reap the fruit of His work in us:.Matthew
25:24,26 with John 4:36,37; Ephesians
2:10. He is able to reap what He sows. But for the rest of us:.Ecclesiastes
9:11; Matthew 5:45.
This sowing and reaping
stuff was in regard to giving money for furthering
the work of the gospel
(2Corinthians 9:6; Galatians
6:6-8) and is a good work
from the heart that goes toward your reward,
and enriches your life now:.2Corinthians
9:11 "Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness.(original
is 'singleness of purpose'), which
causes through us thanksgiving to God."
It is saying that God understands
that one cannot be thankful unless He is enriched in everything. To feel
this way in spite of what trials and tests may now be afflicting you, takes
God's gift of faith. One feeling lack in his life just cannot feel thankful,
like hello, thankful for what? When you believe that
8:28 is true, which is living by faith, even if things are tough on
you, know you are above it!
Many are unthankful in life
due to where their mind is at – their problems; not enough food, problems
with people, etc. They are myopic (nearsightedness) and cannot see far
enough to, by faith, see joy."in
30:5,11; Lamentations 3:21-38.
Present circumstances are
mostly due to past decisions. Knowing that is
how we can, with God's guidance, determine a happier future.
God knows that you need happy
occurrences, but maybe you have to learn some things. What else are you
here for? One thing to learn;
too, had to learn! God knows the good that prosperity in your hand would
do. He is here to serve us:.Luke
22:27 ".....I am among you as he that serves.".And,
true spiritual people do similarly.
are necessary for what would ensure our joy beyond the physical. After
all, we are His workmanship:.Ephesians
It is rather amazing how
things come back on us. For most people, it is years and even decades later.
For others, like this guy, it
was real quick!
