A Message From Peter James
Reaping What We Sow
This afternoon high in the sky 4 air force jets roared overhead, racing to a destination somewhere
in the West. I seem to be on a flight path for such journeys, and it is quite normal to hear,
if not see, these aircraft zooming East or West.
It does raise the question: can we really defend ourselves, with all our high tech equipment?
I understand that it is now an offence to say anything that might cause people to fear.
In any case the answer is No, we cannot defend ourselves.
First we need to understand who is our enemy.
Secondly we need to factor God into the equation.
This we very rarely do, if ever.
We can state our position, which is quite extreme, very bluntly.
This applies to the entire earth and not just Zion as you will see.
Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites.
Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?
who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
Regardless of all our armaments, this question still stands.
Put another way, who will dwell in the calm in the midst of a raging hurricane?
In the eye of the most severe hurricane is calm and even blue skies.
How will you get there, how will you live in the midst of furious devastating fire?
The answer is as follows:
15 He that walketh righteously,
and speaketh uprightly;
he that despiseth the gain of oppressions,
that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes,
that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood,
and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
You can see that there are six specific qualifications.
It is a simple matter to ask yourself if you might have any chance of meeting these criteria.
Over and over again the prophets in the Old Testament make it very clear that the Eternal God
has a controversy not only with Israel and Judah, but also with the nations.
Everywhere I go I see armed police at airports, and members of the army in even,
what used to be sleepy Caribbean Islands.
No water allowed to be taken on aircraft, no toothpaste, plus a myriad other things.
Fear is widespread, but the promised security still eludes us.
Isaiah 34:1 ¶ Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear,
and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
2 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies:
he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
According to these verses there will come a point when all armies will be destroyed.
It is clear from this verse, that ultimately the might of all the armies will not be of
any use at all.
Many of our documents state that you will reap what you sow.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
The Eternal God puts his name on the line.
He says that if you do not reap what you sow then He will be mocked.
It will never happen.
We have also been told that we have sown the wind, and that we will reap the whirlwind.
Hosea 8:7 For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind:
it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.
It is plain to see that the US and the UK, and other New World Order countries
and organisations, are causing death and destruction in many parts of the world in many ways.
As we have already shown our armaments are not able to defend us.
So when do we actually reap what we have sown?
Here is the surprising answer.
As you read it consider if you would say that this accurately describes the US,
the UK and the nation called Israel?
Isaiah 33:1 ¶
Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled;
and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee!
I would say that it does state precisely what we are doing.
I do not need to list the unjustified wars, the lying, the plundering of resources,
and the endless killing.
You can see this in almost every news bulletin, whether on the Tel-lie-vision,
radio, or in the press.
See: You Live In Babylon
Now the second part of the verse explains what happens to those referred to in the first part
of the verse. It tells us precisely when we reap what we have sown.
It is surprising, and certainly not what we might think.
Isaiah 33:1 . . . . . when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled;
and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously,
they shall deal treacherously with thee.
We are told that when we stop carrying out our wickedness, for whatever reason it might be,
we might even awaken to the fact that we should not be doing these things, none the less at that
time the judgment descends, and we will be spoiled, and dealt with treacherously just as
we did ourselves.
Lest some think that I am interpreting the scriptures to suit myself,
let us look at an actual example in action.
We all need to realise that this can also be applied to the health and wealth gospel.
Because things seem to be going well for a person, we can conclude that the person
is being blessed by God because of their ‘righteousness’, that is not necessarily the case at all.
Jeremiah was sent to give a message to the Jews in several areas, including Egypt.
The message essentially was turn from your wickedness, and turn to the Eternal God.
Jeremiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel;
Ye have seen all the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah;
and, behold, this day they are a desolation, and no man dwelleth therein,
3 Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger,
in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not,
neither they, ye, nor your fathers.
As usual they ignored Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 44:5 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness,
to burn no incense unto other gods.
I strongly suggest that you read the whole of Jeremiah chapter 44.
The people bluntly told Jeremiah that they were not going to do what he said, period.
Jeremiah 44: 16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the LORD,
we will not hearken unto thee.
17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth,
to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her,
as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah,
and in the streets of Jerusalem:. . . . .
You will notice that they were burning incense to the Queen of heaven, which is none
other than Satan in one of his many manifestations, as the Virgin Mary, Isis, Astarte, etc.
Notice also that the women, who were speaking made it clear that they were not alone
in doing what they were doing, the king, princes and their fathers were also involved
in this activity.
Verse 17 continues and tells us why they were doing it.
Jeremiah 44:17 . . . . . for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
It is clear that for them sinning had very clear benefits,
they saw no evil,
they were well,
they had plenty of food.
So what happened when they stopped their sinful activity?
Their ‘blessings’ stopped and they were immediately pursued by lack, war and famine.
Jeremiah 44:18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven,
and to pour out drink offerings unto her,
we have wanted all things,
and have been consumed by the sword
and by the famine.
19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her,
did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
Faulty human reasoning came into play.
It was better to sin, and to be blessed,
than to obey, and to suffer.
It never occurred to them that they were reaping the judgment which was decreed
because of their deeds, although all the prophets over and over, warned them that
this is exactly what would happen.
You will notice that this is an exact example of judgment following the cessation of sin,
as stated in Isaiah 33, which we mentioned above.
We can tend to think only about evil when we think of sowing and reaping,
however, there is also a very positive aspect to this.
You can sow good seed, and you will also reap the associated blessings.
We can see an example of this with Elijah and the widow woman.
The Eternal God sent Elijah to a widow in Zarephath.
1 Kings 17:9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there:
behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
This woman was in a desperate situation.
She was going to prepare her last meal for her son and herself, when Elijah turned up.
He asked for a little water.
1 Kings 17:10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city,
ehold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her,
and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
Then he asked her something that must have staggered her, as she was going to prepare
her last meal because of the famine.
From her total lack, he asked a ‘little morsel of bread’.
1 Kings 17:11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her,
and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
She explained to Elijah, whom she did not know, her precise position.
1 Kings 17:12 And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake,
but an handful of meal in a barrel,
and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it
for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
Elijah tells us ‘Fear not’, do as I say anyway.
1 Kings 17:13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof
a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
Then he gave her the astounding and what must have been quite unbelievable news,
you are not going to die.
You are going to have meal and oil until the famine finishes.
1 Kings 17:14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste,
neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
This woman was certainly unusual.
She believed and obeyed in spite of her pitiful position.
1 Kings 17:15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: . . . .
Now we see the blessing from the seed she sowed.
1 Kings 17:15 . . . . and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail,
according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
This matter of seed sowing is used by many tele-evangelists to squeeze money from their
members. They make their members tithe, then they take up offerings for all sorts of things.
Offerings for overseas missions, love offerings, offerings at funerals etc. etc.
The list of offerings is endless.
The carrot is that you reap what you sow.
They misapply the scripture for their benefit.
You will be able to take back from Satan what he has stolen from you, they shout.
Sow £10 and get back £100, a £100 and get back £1,000.
It is very much like an investment.
If after years you are still in poverty, then you are made to feel guilty.
There is always a reason, and the end result is that you are to blame.
Maybe you are not giving enough.
Maybe you do not have enough ‘faith’.
Maybe you are not commanding Satan to give back what he has stolen from you.
Maybe you have some sin which is holding back the blessings from coming to you.
Very few, if any, speak of obedience to what the Eternal God demands.
As long as the coppers fill their coffers, that is all that matters to them.
What they do not tell you is that they are false shepherds,
and that the money goes to fund their lavish lifestyle.
We have listed elsewhere that some of these people pay themselves literally millions
of $ per year, in addition to their huge expense accounts.
Some members have been known to take out second mortgages in order to fund
what they believe to be the work of ‘God’.
Instead of seeking to ‘get’ from their flock, maybe the Pastors need to first of all
seek to feed their flock with right and proper food.
Ezekiel 34: 1 ¶ And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel
that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
3 Ye eat the fat, and
ye clothe you with the wool,
ye kill them that are fed: but
ye feed not the flock.
Sadly many of the flock support their pastors.
Ezekiel 34: 17 ¶ And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.
18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture,
but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures?
and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?
19 And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet;
and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.
It is very clear that we have a serious problem with reaping and sowing.
Much of the disillusionment that many experience is directly related to bad,
or even wicked seed which has been sown, by those who should know better.
When do you reap what you sow?
After you stop sowing, you start reaping, however there can be a ‘growing’ period
between when you sow, and when you reap.
What is certain is that you will ultimately, and inevitably reap what you sow.
It is very possible that like in the parable of the sower, good seed has been sown into us.
It is therefore our responsibility to bring forth the best possible harvest.
Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold,
some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Let us make our goal to trust in the Eternal for our defence and protection, and let us all
aim to be profitable servants, as we carry out the perfect will of our Father in heaven.
The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.
He is the only way of escape.
Praise the Lord.
Come soon Lord Jesus.
