April 12th, 2015- WHICH SIDE ARE YOU?

Matthew 13:3-9 :18-23

  Then He spoke  many things  to them in parables saying “ Behold a  sower  went out to sow and as he sowed, some seed fell  by the way side  and the birds came and devoured them.
    Some fell on stony places where they did not have much earth and they immediately sprang up because they had  no  depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were scorched and because they had no root they withered away.
    And some fell  among thorns and the thorns sprang up and chocked them.
    But others fell  on good ground and yielded  a crop. Some a hundred fold, some sixty, some thirty.  He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
Vs 18-23
        Therefore, hear the parable of the sower: “ When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, then the wicked ones comes and snatches  away what was sown in his heart. This is he  who  received seed by the way side.
        But he who receives  the seed on stony places , this is he who  hears the word and immediately receive it with joy. Yet he has no root in himself  but endures  only  for a while, for when tribulation  or persecution arises  because of the word, immediately he stumbles..
          Now he who received  seed  among the thorns is he who  hears  the word and the cares of this world  and the deceitfulness  of riches  choke the word  and he becomes unfruitful.
          But he who  received seed  on the good ground is he who hears  the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruits  and produces : some are hundredfold, some  sixty, some thirty.

Our God is a great God, He is everlasting, He is mighty and whoever  does the will of God receives His glory. Some people are not doing anything  for God in the church of God. Psalm 34:8 says” Oh taste and see  that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him”. Again, Psalm  73:1 says  “ Truly, God is good to Israel, To such as are pure in heart.” Psalm 118:1 and 136:1  says  “ Oh give thanks to God for He is good  for His mercy endures forever.”  Psalm  135:1 says “ Praise the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord, Praise Him O you servants of the  Lord.” God is good.  Isaiah 40:18 says “  To whom then  will  you liken God? Or what  likeness will you compare to Him?  God is Incomparable.  He is the Holy God. Genesis 3:9 .“ Then  the Lord God called to Adam  and said “ Where are you.?” Here, God was not referring to where Adam was standing but his spiritual life.” Therefore ,  WHERE  ARE  YOU?

Here, this group of people hear the word of God but the devil  takes it away from them. Joshua  24:15 says “ And if it seems  evil  to you to serve the  Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your  fathers served that were on the other side of the river or the gods of the Amorites  in whose land you dwell.” “ But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  As a child of God, you have to drop  your iniquities and surrender yourself to God. Psalm 24:1 says “ The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness, the world and those who dwell  therein.” You  have to understand your master and don’t go after  fettish priest.” Exodus 23:25 says “ So you shall serve the Lord your God and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you”.  God says He will bless your water and bread. So Brethren,  do not think about your problems, just cast your  burthen unto
Jesus. In the presence of God, bring your heart and soul home. As a child of God, you should stop smoking ,drunkenness etc. If you  do not keep the word of God, you are on the way side.

This group of people flourish in the church and later disappear. In other words, they took the word of God from stolen grounds. John 3:27 says “  A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.” Again, James  1:17 says” Every good gift  and every perfect  gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” It is only God that makes things happen. That is why Psalm 34:15 says”  The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are open to their cry”. Psalm 22:4-5 says ‘ Our fathers trusted in You, They trusted and You delivered them. They cried to You and were delivered. They trusted in You  and were not ashamed.” Brethren, just trust in God and He will make things happen in your life.

Truly  speaking, anything that grows on thorns  will not be productive.  Jesus says in John 14:6 “ I am  the way, the truth and the life. No one  comes to the Father except through  me.” 2 Corinthians 8:9 says ”For you know the grace of our  Lord Jesus Christ that though He was rich yet for your sakes He became poor that you through His poverty might become rich.”  God wants us to be rich, profitable  and  fruitful. Our family members can be  the thorns and choke us.

You cannot be a Christian and be suffering. You are suffering because you have not tapped  into  His  anointing.  “ Isaiah 53:5 says “ But He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our  peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed.”  Jeremiah 8:22 says “ Is there no  balm in Gilead, Is there no physician there? Why then  is there no recovery for  the health of the daughter of my people?”  You cannot be with God  and physicians are using your body for experiment in the hospital, in other words, they are taking the healing away from God.  Psalm 92:13 says” Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.” God says He will give us long life and everyone who produces good fruit shall flourish. Therefore, every ministry / child of God  that is not prospering  is a disgrace to the kingdom of God.
