Nothing new being done under the sun is new to God. There’s no new sin that has not already been committed.

The Bible speaks of events to come. It also has given us stories of events that have taken place so long ago. Same things are still being done. It’s just with new faces and updated techniques and tricks in this century and those of the past and future.

Like I tell my kids “Don’t ever think you can get away with anything. I’ve been there, done that or know someone who has. And if it passes by me or your Daddy for just a while, it will catch up with you sooner or later. The game doesn’t change. It’s just a new set of faces. Most importantly, you cannot hide what you’ve said or done from God. Remember that. He sees IT ALL.”

For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear. (Mark 4:22, 23 NKJV)

Could this be you? This has been many of us at times whether you are a born- again Christian or not. We all fall short of grace and have sinned like its nobody’s business. Temptation will find you. This world is full of desires that are pleasing to the eye. Yet ask yourself if they are worth partaking in.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2 KJV)

Could this be you right now? (picture below)

Are you installing soundproof installation to the Truth? I’m talking about God’s word. This Truth is the very thing we need in our lives to keep us, sustain us, encourage and protect us from the evil that always creeps around luring us in. This Truth is our guide, our manual, our path that leads to a narrow yet righteous way of living through Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

This is dangerous. Just like a house built on sinking sand, just like a house built with the most expensive type of installation to protect your home from heat and cold, it ALL can still crumble. It will sink, it will catch fire and burn down.

Through wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established; By knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches. A wise man is strong, Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength; For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, And in a multitude of counselors there is safety. (Proverbs 24:3-6 NKJV)

Time is drawing near. We don’t know the day or hour that Christ will come back. Will you be ready?

Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Luke 12:40 NKJV)

The Parable of the Wheat and Tare
Another parable He put forth to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. (Matthew 13:24, 25 NKJV)

I’ve only given you a small scripture about the wheat and tare. I encourage you to read Matthew chapter 13 in its entirety. The parable of sowing seeds is beneficial. The ground on which it’s sown yields an abundance of fruit if planted on good soil. Any other ground is temporary and detrimental if the ground is not cultivated and not taken care of.

But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (Matthew 13:23 NKJV)

He WHO HAS AN EAR LET HIM HEAR.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. (Revelation 2:7 NKJV)

* red denotes words spoken by Christ

May all that you from this point be edifying to the Lord. It’s not an easy task to follow but is worth the cost of following. Our Savior is the way.

Will you allow Him to lead you into a life everlasting?

God bless,

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:13, 14 NKJV)

Breaking Up Fallow Ground: Dig Deep and Wide

Dear Father God, I pray in the name of Jesus that whomever this is meant for will receive this wholeheartedly. There is a breakthrough on the way. I bind any negativity that will try to stand in the way of the souls who need to hear and receive from You. Thank You for another day to make a difference. Bless each and every person who is able to make a change in their life through Christ Jesus if they just deny themselves and surrender to Your will. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Dear believers, it’s time to get to work. Our Lord and Savior needs us to be about His business. Time is of the essence. Turn that uncultivated land into cultivated. There is a great harvest ahead! Scripture tell us :

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you. (Hosea 10;12 )

For thus says the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem: ” Break up your ground left uncultivated for a season, so that you may not sow among thorns.” (Jeremiah 4:3 )

In order to sow good seeds, we must let go of anything that is keeping us from our full potential of walking with Christ. There are things that need to be weeded out….. bitterness, unforgiveness, a hard heart and any matter of such that doesn’t allow us to move forward. You want to bear good fruit right? Ask God to remove anything from you that is just pure junk. I’m calling it junk because it needs to go to the trash. It’s doing nothing more than cluttering your mind and your heart. In no way am I trying to be mean or not understanding because I’ve been there. If you have been following my blog then you know that I have had to release A LOT of things in order to grow. Cast your cares upon the the Lord and let your case be made known. Holding on to matters that is beyond your control will not help you. I can not and will not sugarcoat the Truth. By doing so, I am not helping you at all. Speaking in love and truth is the only way.

In Matthew chapter 13, Jesus tells a parable about a sower. He says that he ( the sower ) went out to sow some seeds and some fell along the path that were devoured by the birds because the Word was heard and not understood.( the enemy will come and snatch was was sown on the heart ), some sown on rocky ground in which the Word was was heard and received with joy but because there was no deep root to keep it flourishing, it died off.( when afflictions, persecutions and troubles come upon you, stumbling happens. You begin to waiver in your trust, your faith, doubting that God will come help you ) Then there were seeds sown among thorns. The Word was heard but the cares of THIS world choked and suffocated it. ( the riches, pleasures, decietfulness, etc.) and it proved unfruitful. Now we come to the seeds that were sown on good soil. The Word was heard and understood. It took ROOT. Now I have paraphrased this as to cut down on typing out the entire chapter. The clue I am giving: please read this chapter in full for yourself. Let God’s Word take root in your heart. Read His Word every day, study it and let it bear much fruit. Gain a clear understanding of His will for you and your purpose in life as a His beloved child. Pray and ask for understanding.  He will provide it for you.

As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty. ( Matthew 13;23 AMP )

Examine your hearts and see what is revealed. It may be a hard thing to do but if you are truly honest with yourself and want to please the Lord, then being obedient to His will and his way rather than your own is the best wayt to go. The Lord wants to do so much for you and through you. Don’t just be a Hearer of the Word, be a Doer of the Word. 

I love you and want to see and hear of your growth in the Lord. May the seeds you sow grow and flourish like never before. I’m praying for you! Now go put on your gloves and prepare to get dirty cause it’s time to clean house! I believe in you. If I can do it, so can you.

Be strong and encouraged in the Lord. You can do all things through Him.

All for His glory,

Terra
