The Giver And The Receiver

SCRIPTURE READING:

ISAIAH 55V10-14

10     FOR AS THE RAIN COMES DOWN, AND SNOW FROM HEAVEN, AND DO NOT  RETURN, BUT WATER THE EARTH, AND MAKE IT BRING FORTH AND BUD, THAT IT MAY GIVE SEED TO THE SOWER, AND BREAD TIO THE EATER.

11 SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT COMES FROM MY MOUTH, IT SHALL NOT RETURN VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHICH I SEND IT FOR.

12     FOR YOU SHALL GO OUT WITH JOY, AND BE LED OUT WITH PEACE, THE MOUNTAINS AND HILLS SHALL BREAK FORTH INTO SINGING BEFORE YOU.

13     INSTEAD OF THORN, SHALL COME UP THE CYPRESS TREE, INSTEAD OF BRIER SHALL COME UP THE MYRTLE TREE.

14     AND IT SHALL BE TO THE LORD FOR A NAME, FOR AN EVERLASTING SIGN THAT IT SHALL NOT BE CUT OFF.

THE PROPHESY THAT WE WILL BE CUT OFF FROM BONDAGE AND CORRUPTION, BUT NOT FROM GOD.

 

TEXT VERSE:

JEREMIAH 55 V 11:
SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT COMES FROM MY MOUTH, IT SHALL NOT RETURN VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHICH I SEND IT FOR.

INTRODUCTION

We look at the prov 31 woman. 

Sometimes we feel like failures when we measure ourselves to this woman.  But the wise woman makes God the 1st priority in her life. 

She very much takes up the role of the Holy Spirit. 

 John 14 v 26 – But the Helper, the HOLY Spirit Whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things and bring to remembrance all things that I say to you

 JOHN 16 v 13
HOWEVER, WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH HAS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTHS, FOR HE WILL NOT SPEAK ON HIS OWN AUTHORITY, BUT WHAT EVER HE HEARS FROM GOD HE WILL SPEAK

 ACTS 1v 8 – BUY YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU, AND YOU SHALL BE WITNESSES TO ME

 He is the Comforter, Counselor, Helper, intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener.

GOD GAVE 3 THINGS.
THE SON, THE SOWER AND THE SEED.

  • THE SON:
    MATT 1 V 21 – AND SHE WILL BRING FORTH A SON, AND YOU SHALL CALL HIM JESUS, FOR HE WILL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM SIN.

 YOU SHALL CALL HIM JESUS.  NAME HIM JESUS – A NAME GIVES IDENTITY OF WHO YOU ARE, WHICH FAMILY YOU BELONG TO AND WHERE YOU CAME FROM.

  • THE SOWER AND THE SEED:

GEN 1 V 22
AND GOD BLESSED THEM, SAYING ‘BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY, AND FILL THE WATERS IN THE SEAS, AND LET BIRDS MULTIPLY ON EARTH.

WHEN MAN WAS CREATED, GOD ALREADY PUT HIS INCORRUPTABLE SEED INTO THE MAN.  GODS DNA TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT GOD INTENDED FOR HUMAN RACE, THE MAN NOW BECOMES THE SOWER OF THE SEED.

THE WOMEN NOW BECOMES THE RECEIVER OF GOD’S INCORRUPTABLE SEED.  THIS MAKES GOD’S CREATION PURPOSE COMPLETE.

V11 – SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT COMES FORTH FROM MY MOUTH, IT SHALL NOT RETURN VOID (EMPTY) BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH WHAT I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHICH I SEND IT FOR.

IF IT IS SEND BY GOD.  IT SHALL PROSPER.  LIFE PROSPERS.

REMEMBER THE LIFE IS IN THE SEED.  EVERY LIVING THING OR BEING CAME INTO EXISTANCE TROUGH SEED.

SEED PRODUCES AFTER ITS OWN KIND AND BRINGS FORTH LIFE.  THE WOMAN GIVES BIRTH TO A LIFE WHICH NOW MAKES HER A MOTHER.   ALONG WITH THIS LIFE COMES RESPONSIBILITIES AND LIFE’S CHALLENGES BUT ALSO GOD’S PROMISES AND BLESSINGS.  WE CAN ONLY RECEIVE THESE PROMISES AND BLESSINGS FROM GOD IF WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.  FOR GOD IS SPIRIT, AND REQUIRES THAT WE ACCEPT OUR LAWFUL RIGHT IN HIM THROUGH ACCEPTANCE OF THE THREE THINGS WHICH HE GIVES US – THE SON, THE SOWER AND THE SEED.

DEUT 7 V 9
THEREFORE KNOW THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD, HE IS GOD, THE FAITHFULL GOD WHO KEEPS COVENANT AND MERCY FOR A THOUSAND GENERATIONS WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS.

TWO THINGS PROMISED WILL MAKE US SUCCESSFUL MOTHERS

GOD AND LOVE.  HE IS GOD AND HE IS LOVE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MOTHER THAT SITS HERE TODAY, SERVING THE LORD, YET HER CHILD DOES NOT SERVE THE LORD.

REMEMBER THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR HELPER IN PRAYER.

MOTHER BORN FROM GOD.  BORN FROM LOVE –  SHE WAS THE 1ST CHOSEN ONE FROM GOD TO SHOW YOU LOVE:

L       – LOVE, LIGHT, LIFE

O       – OVERSEE, OFFSPRING, OVERCOME

V       – VICTORY, VALUES, VISION

E       – ETERNAL VALUES, EMPOWERS, EDUCATE.

PROV   22V6
TRAIN UP A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND ONE DAY WHEN HE’S OLD, HE SHALL NOT DEPART FROM IT.

SHE OFFERS THEM GOD:

G       – GIVE, GUIDE, GODLY CHARACTER

O       – OPPORTUNITY, OFFENSIVE WEAPON (GODS WORD), OFFICIALLY GAVE YOU LEGAL RIGHT INTO THIS WORLD

D       – DISCIPLINES, DELIGATE, DEVELOP, DECIPPLES

 

HAND OUT GIFTS

PROV 13V24
HE WHO SPARES THE ROD, HATES HIS SON, BUT HE WHO LOVES HIM, DISCIPLINES HIM PROMPTLY.

A DEATH ROW INMATE WRITES A LETTER TO HIS MOTHER ON 7 MARCH 2018.

A DEATH ROW INMATE AWAITING EXECUTION, ASKED AS A LAST WISH A PEN AND PAPER.  AFTER WAITING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES,

THE CONVICT CALLED THE PRISON GUARD AND ASKED THAT THIS LETTER BE HANDED TO HIS BIOLOGICAL MOTHER.

THE LETTER SAID:
‘MOTHER, IF THEIR WERE MORE JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD, WE WOULD BE BOTH EXECUTED TODAY AND NOT JUST ME.

YOU’RE AS GUILTY AS I AM FOR THE LIFE I LED.

REMIND YOURSEF WHEN I BRING HOME THE BIKE OF A BOY LIKE ME?  YOU HELPEDME HIDE THE BICYCLE FOR MY FATHER NOT TO SEE IT. 

DO YOUN REMEMBER WHEN I STOLE MONEY FROM THE NEIGHBOUR’S WALLET?  YOU WENT TO THE MALL WITH ME TO SPEND IT.

DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN I ARGUED WITH MY FATHER AND HE’S GONE?  HE JUST WANTED TO CORRECT ME BECAUSE I STOLE THE FINAL RESULTS OF THE COMPETITION, AND FOR THAT I HAVE BEEN EXPELLED. 

MOM, I WAS JUST A CHILD, SHORTLY AFTER I BECAME A TROUBLED TEENAGER, AND NOW I AM A PRETTY MALFORMED MAN.  MOM, I WAS JUST A CHILD IN NEED OF CORRECTION, AND NOT OF APPROVAL.

BUT I FORGIVE YOU.  I JUST WANT THIS LETTER TO REACH THE GREATEST NUMBER OF PARENTS IN TGE WORLD, SO THEY CAN KNOW WHAT MAKES ALL PEOPLE GOOD OR BAD…. IT’S EDUCATION.’

 

CONCLUSION:

EVEN JESUS CHRIST TOOK CARE OF HIS MOTHER BEFORE HE WAS CRUCIFIED.

JOHN 19 V 25 AND 26
25 – WHEN JESUS SAW HIS MOTHER AND THE DECIPLE WHOM HE LOVED STANDING BY.  HE SAID TO HIS MOTHER, “WOMAN, THERE IS YOUR SON.
26 – THEN HE SAID TO THE DICIPLE, THERE IS YOUR MOTHER.

CHILDREN, HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOTHER?  FATHERS HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN’S MOTHER?
