NowFaith.TV Advanced Ministry Lesson # 41
Are You Sowing Your Seed into Good Ground?
Hear the
Audio mp3 about increasing your harvest.

Father has promised to bless believers in Christ with an abundant harvest if you are transformed by His Spirit - sow good seed into good ground - and are believing for a 100 fold return.  If you haven't been seeing a wonderful harvest, use this check list below to see if you are actually sowing into good ground or just sowing.  We were inspired by the "Transformation" videos as they showed how radical transformation by the Holy Spirit of God produced an awesome spiritual and natural harvest.  Both crops were awesome!



 believe God has a plan to provide for all believers during these challenging financial times.  His plan is not the world's way of getting all you can and "canning all you get." Hoarding is the surest way to go bankrupt in these end-times.  His financial insurance plan is for us to be 1. Spirit-led givers, 2. giving into good ground and 3. advancing the Kingdom of God in strategic ways. We can't out give God and as we seek first the Kingdom of God, all things will truly be added unto us.  Matthew 6:33
The New Testament teaches the remarkable idea that we can "invest in eternity," that is, that we can use our resources now in such a way that they will generate a return in the age to come. Are you investing in eternity?  Years ago, God asked me to give more and to start investing in very very long CDs - eternal Christian Deposits - if you will.
You might be thinking that times are tough and you actually plan to give less.  Please consider the fact that God's financial insurance is to sow more and to give in the very area where you desire to reap.  God's spiritual LAW of sowing and reaping never never fails.  If you will follow the Holy Spirit to sow into the Kingdom of God, you will reap in kind, more than you sow and later than you sow.  If you have a need, sow more of that very thing.

Are you like a Macedonian, looking for ways to be more generous to God's Kingdom?  "And now, brothers, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.
For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.  Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will. So we urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. But just as you excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of giving." (2 Corinthians 8:1-7)
Years ago, God challenged me to give - believing for 100 fold.  I did an extensive Bible study on God's promise that whatever we lay down for the Kingdom's sake, we will reap 100 fold -- not 100 times, but 100 fold.  I gave my last $100. believing God's promises, "GOD, YOU SAID!" God motivated someone to bless me with a value worth $10,000. the very next month!!  Then I was determined to give to His Kingdom believing for a 100 fold!
