Open Heaven 19 December 2022 MESSAGE:
Scripture: But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6
Ecclesiastes 3:2 says: “a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;” When a fellow fails to plant when he should, he will not harvest at the normal time. Furthermore, Proverbs 20:4 says: “The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.”
If you dont plant when you ought to, you would have nothing to harvest. If you want a bountiful harvest, you must be willing to sow bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6 says: “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”
A long time ago, when The Redeemed Christian Church of God was still quite small, I used my salary to pay most of the staff and had nothing left. At some point, I had to go into early retirement in order to carry out my duties as General Overseer more effectively and I had a lot of expectations concerning my gratuity.
In the middle of all my plans, I remembered that I had not asked God for what to do with the gratuity, so I did. God told me to divide the money into three parts: each part was to go to a different ministry.
None of these ministries was the one I was leading! This broke my heart, but God assured me that He would be my Source. It has been over forty years now and up to today, He has never failed me and I know He never will.
Bountiful harvests will cost you big seeds. If the Lord is asking you to give bountifully, He is planning to reward you bountifully. You will not lose your opportunity, in Jesus name.
Open Heavens 19 December 2022 Key Point
Father, please reveal to me what seed I need to sow and where, in order to receive a bountiful harvest.
