The Fundamental Time Cycle

A seed contains the miracle of life in it but remains only as potential until it is planted in fertile ground.  Before it is planted, it can remain dormant for years and appear to be of no value.  Once it is properly planted, life begins to be unlocked and within a reasonable amount of time, it will produce fruit which contains even more seed that can be planted.

FATHER spoke in HIS Heart in Genesis chapter 8:

20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 

21 And the LORD smelled a soothing aroma. Then the LORD said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.

​22 ​​“While the earth remains,

​​Seedtime and harvest,

​​Cold and heat,

​​Winter and summer,

​​And day and night

​​Shall not cease.”

This covenant continues this very day.  Also included is the reference to time.  With the latest advances in technology, people have become impatient.  Patience is defined as the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.  We are to remain steadfast and unmoved as we wait for the Word to grow in our hearts and begin producing a harvest.

FATHER clearly requires time to be considered between seedtime and harvest of any seed we plant.  First of all, many people don’t plant seeds then wonder why FATHER isn’t blessing them in the area of need.  Secondly, they want immediate results without be patient.  They then think of excuses why The Word doesn’t work in their lives when the real reason is found in the mirror.  Thirdly, the think seeds are generic and it doesn’t matter what type of seed you plant thus they end up with a harvest that doesn’t address a specific need in their life.

Being familiar with certain Scriptures is not the same as planting those Scriptures in our hearts.  Some people have developed a bias against some Scriptures because there has been no observable fruit in their life.  I know for a certainty that healing Scriptures produce healing and restoration because I have personal testimonies of their fruitfulness.  I also know for a certainty that Scriptures which refer to finances also produce financial prosperity for I have personal testimonies in that area as well.  Most of all, Scriptures that focus on Agape Love, will produce fruitfulness in that area.  I can see the change occurring in my life and look at people differently now.  I have a better understanding of the Words of Jesus when dealing with the various people He encountered.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 3 John:

2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth.

4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

What does “in all things” mean?  Are there any exceptions?  John walked with Jesus and heard His teachings thus he would write nothing that would conflict with The Divine Intent behind The Word.  He would not encourage us to expect to prosper in all areas if we were not able to produce fruit in those areas.  He even rejoices when we have Truth in us and walk in that Truth to the point where he exclaims he has no greater joy!

We need to quit making excuses for our failure to walk in the fullness of The Word.  Let us simply repent and recommit ourselves to planting the pure Word in our hearts and expect a corresponding harvest.  Some would defer this harvest to some future prophetic event.  However, John spoke to us in the present tense and frankly, we need prosperity in the various areas of our life while we dwell on this earth.  Jesus always healed in the “present”, not the future.  He multiplied the loaves and fishes in the “now” because the people were physically hungry.

We all need greater revelation in our walk and The Word should be at the forefront of our daily lives.  Let us be patient and allow the time aspect of seed-time-harvest cycle to work.  Then we will be blessed in all we do.
