WAR ON POVERTY SERIES: "THE SOWING AND REAPING CASINO"

Many of us have been trapped by the concept of "sowing and reaping". My understanding is that this is derived out of two main scriptures which are;

Luke 6:38, Give, and it will be given to you:good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

2 Corinthians 9:6, But this I say:He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
What has often been missed is two other very critical scriptures which are:

Matthew 6:33, But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

2 Corinthians 8:5, And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.

WE HAVE THEN PLAYED CASINO THROUGH THE SOWING AND REAPING PRINCIPLE HOPING FOR A QUICK-FIX TO OUR FINANCIAL WORES.

Sowing financial seed to grow a harvest is admirable, but failure to prioritize spiritual growth degrades this Godly principle to a PONZI SCHEME!

People, needing help with their problems, have been frequently told to sow financial seeds as the remedy. Whether a person’s problem was in finances, relationships, or health, the solution frequently appeared to be sowing a financial seed. This approach has become a prominent deception which has overstretched a biblical principle.

EVER WONDERED WHY WHENEVER THIS PRINCIPLE IS ABUSED, MATTERS OF HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE DELIBERATELY IGNORED!

"THE SOWING AND REAPING" PRINCIPLE HAS BECOME A BUSINESS STRATEGY FOR MOST MINISTRIES TO SUSTAIN THEIR HUGE OVERHEADS WHICH DO NOT PASS THE KINGDOM STEWARDSHIP TEST.

This is a clear departure from Paul the Apostle, Acts 20:33-35, I have coveted no one's silver or gold or apparel. Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me. I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘ It is more blessed to give than to receive. ’

Jesus had this to say; Matthew 21:12-13, Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. And He said to them, “ It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.

IN A GAME OF CASINO THE ONLY REAL WINNER IS THE CASINO OWNER, THE REST GO BACK TO POVERTY, MISERY AND DISAPPOINTMENT.

WE MUST GIVE OURSELVES TO THE LORD FIRST, THEN SEEK HIS KINGDOM THEN SOW THE SEED, KNOWING THAT GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER!
