Divine Agriculture


Each Sunday, I usually post a digested sermon by our Pastor Jerry.  Today my post will be brief due to unfortunate circumstances.

On Saturday there was a wedding at our church and the sound system was changed for the wedding, but was not put back as it should have been.  When our Sunday service began there was harsh feedback and regrettably I was not able to hear most of the sermon.  Fortunately I had the bulletin.

When it was time for the Joys, I had been impressed to share my story about the California Water situation and how we should speak to the rocks to bring forth water as Moses was told to do.

As the service progressed, one of our ladies was asked to read a Scripture from the Psalms, and I was amazed because this particular selection was a confirmation to my sharing.

Psalm 65:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
You visit the earth and water it,
You greatly enrich it;

The river of God is full of water;
You provide their grain,
For so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly,
You settle its furrows;
You make it soft with showers,
You bless its growth.


The bulletin contained the Sermon Title and the scripture and thus I present the digested subject from Matthew 13: 24-30, 36-43.  DIVINE AGRICULTURE

Jesus came preaching the Kingdom of God and he often spoke in parables.  On one occasion, He spoke about a man who went forth to sow good seed, but soon weeds sprang up.   

The servants asked if they should pull up the weeds. 


The tares will be gathered and burnt
 
The man said, no an enemy has sowed the weeds; just allow them to grow together until the harvest and then the weeds shall be set aside and burnt and the good grain will be placed in my barn.
His disciples asked Jesus to explain the story and briefly this is what He said.

1.The sower is the Son of Man (Jesus.)
2. The field is the world.
3. The good seeds are the sons of the kingdom.
4. The weeds are the sons of the wicked one.
5. The enemy is the devil.
6. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.


Pastor encouraged us to understand that good and evil happens to us all.

Tragedy, sickness, and death touch many of our lives, but we have a choice to decide the way we will turn.  We are free to make good decisions and we are also free to choose the wrong path.
We are free to serve and trust God through it all.  Our hope is in Christ Jesus.

  1. Amen. It's all about perspective, and to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. That's really encouraging that the scripture read tied in with your prophetic word that God put in your heart!

  2. You got the message even though the sound system was messed up. Thank you for sharing it with us. I'm glad the angels will do the separating. If men were doing it, they would get very confused about what was good and what was evil. Everyone seems to have their own ideas about that.
    Blessings,
