Father, in the Name of Jesus, I pray for the strengthening of our partners and the growth of the Word in their hearts, that they would be doers of the Word and not hearers only. Father, I thank You for not leading them into temptation and delivering them from every evil. I claim a fresh stirring of their hearts, mouths, and minds with the Isaiah 54 and Hosea 2:18 Covenants, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
12 Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. Luke 8:12
To refuse to lay claim to every harvest from every righteous thing you do in the Kingdom of God is about the most irresponsibly short-sighted negligence of duty you could ever indulge in. It's on par with and easily worse than the greatest evils against the Kingdom you've ever imagined or heard of.
13 But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. Luke 8:13
You cannot complete your course with joy if you leave even one harvest to rot in the field 'cause in false humility you don't believe that that seed you sowed counted! This passage isn't talking about backsliding like Israel in falling away. It's talking about putting your hand to the plow and looking back with questioning your motives that if you harvest every last thing that somehow the character of Christ isn't being formed in you, when the character of Christ being formed in you would have stormed forward in taking hold of every last farthing from every fraction of a righteous thing that you've done in the Kingdom KNOWING there's Zechariah 8:5-6 children playing in the streets of the Jerusalem that's from above that Hebrews 12:22 says we live in now and that I'm/YOU'RE the Shepherd of and the Lord hath need of this for their education, per Isaiah 54:11-13.
14 Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. Luke 8:14
Second guessing whether a kindness, compassionate deed, or righteous act needs to be harvested, deliberately, is part of the cares of this world and lusts of other things with being a disciple of the Devil that it doesn't take harvesting ALL OF THAT! Your harvests matter to finishing your job and having every resource. Anything you don't have isn't about God's timing but your diligence if you've been in the Kingdom more than a few months. Not one morsel can be lost, as Jesus told the disciples after the thousands were fed and they were sent to pick up what was left, which was the hundredfold harvest of the child's who gave his lunch to Jesus.
15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. Luke 8:15
What you are wanting to accomplish with your life isn't in God's Hands, it's your harvest; your cumulative, COMPOUNDING harvest; your own ages of ages that's composed of each age that you harvested and sowed and harvested, building one age upon another through your sowing and reaping and ability to sow for bigger harvests from what you just sowed and reaped. Any break in the chain is a break in your destiny and something you will fail to complete with joy and that you will give an answer for!
8 But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold. Luke 8:8
Any good thing you receive isn't even your full harvest if it's not a minimum of what you sowed times 100; a minimum of that! Your faithfulness with the Lord's money, property, assets, and resources DOESN'T EVEN BEGIN 'til EVERYTHING'S a seed and EVERYTHING needs to be harvested! (In the negative, you know the Devil's working 24/7 on every single one of your gray areas to bring you down and if you lack his diligence with operating the Kingdom of God system....then we'll bury you a century before your time, even if you live to a hundred!) We must all appear before the judgment seat of our Melchizedek and account for every morsel of what He's multiplied for us, according to John 6:12 and 2Corinthians 5:
12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” John 6:12
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences. 2Corinthians 5:10-11
That's the terror of the Lord that St. Paul spoke of. The beautiful thing is that while there's life, there's hope and if you've been grossly delinquent in fulfillment of your duty in Christ; completely negligent regarding any of your harvests, you can still lay claim to your harvests, even if the seed was sown nearly a century ago. The Scriptures talk about God restoring the years to you that were lost harvests:
24 The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. 25 “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; and My people shall never be put to shame. Joel 2:24-26
Many of you would be PRECISELY where you should have been at [RIGHT NOW] if you'd been more responsible with harvesting, but God will restore the years if you'll lay claim to it and never forfeit another harvest on a seed sown ever again!
Father, I pray for those who are renouncing the evil of being a lazy son/daughter in harvest, who have been shaming their Father, as it says in Proverbs, that the Spirit of wisdom and revelation would be their's so they'd know to the penny what this world and the god of this age owes them (Matthew 18:34; 2Corinthians 4:3-4) so that they will be single-minded about the usage of their authority in Christ, the binding and plundering of the strong man, and exactly what they need to assign their angels to bring in, who've been sent forth to minister FOR the heirs of salvation (Hebrews 1:14), in Jesus' Name. Amen!

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2
Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
