BAD SOIL
Memory Verse: And when he sowed,
some seeds
fell by the way side, and the fowls
came and
devoured them up:Matthew 13:4
Read: Matthew 13:3-8
3 And he spake many things unto
them in
parables, saying, Behold, a sower
went forth to
sow;
4 And when he sowed, some seeds
fell by the way
side, and the fowls came and
devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places,
where they had not
much earth: and forthwith they
sprung up,
because they had no deepness of
earth:
6 And when the sun was up, they
were scorched;
and because they had no root, they
withered
away.
7 And some fell among thorns; and
the thorns
sprung up, and choked them:
8 But other fell into good ground,
and brought
forth fruit, some an hundredfold,
some sixtyfold,
some thirtyfold.
Message
For your request to be granted, you
have to apply
relevant keys. Many people desire
financial
breakthrough but are not prepared
to apply the
right key; unsurprisingly the door
just won’t open.
2 Corinthians 9:6 says you must
sow bountifully
and if you don’t sow, do not expect
a harvest. Do
you know some people are
expecting a harvest
when they have not sowed? For
such people, their
harvest will come as a big bang that
will attract
people but it will have nothing in it.
What a shame
that will be! But that will not be
your portion.
However, it is not enough to sow;
you must
adhere to all the conditions
necessary for a good
harvest. For instance, in the parable
of the sower
documented in Matthew 13:3-8,
seeds must be
sown on good soil. Any seed sown
on bad soil has
automatically been lost and the
harvest lost. What
is a bad soil? A bad soil is a soil that
God does
not want you to sow into at that
material time, no
matter how logical or pressing the
need is. If God
says you should not give to a
particular individual
and you disobey thinking you know
more than
God, or you know how much the
fellow is in need,
you have acted in disobedience and
lost both seed
and harvest. If care is not taken, you
may even
get punished.
A bad soil is also one that glorifies
Satan openly
or secretly while claiming to be a
godly
organisation. Any church, ministry
or ‘servant of
God’ that uses a contrary spirit or
still offers
sacrifices, dialogues with spirits of
the dead or
indulges in any occultic activity is a
bad soil.
Sowing there is sowing directly into
Satan’s
kingdom. A bad soil is equally
sowing into a
cause that will increase the
flamboyance, empty
pride and sinful life-style of its
recipient. If a
particular man of God is calling for
donations over
which he may not account for, or
which will
enable him sustain a riotous life-
style – ride the
biggest cars, live in the most
expensive mansions,
or live in sin, such seeds are lost.
Ask
to be led of
God before you sow in causes that
are not clear to
you, lest you waste your seed and
lose your
harvest.
ActionPoint
Drug addicts, street urchins and
anyone suffering
from addiction should not be given
money but
food items, care, and the gospel of
Jesus
