We Shall Reap, Part #3 | Keith Moore | November 6, 2022

Recap:
What a weekend we had with guest minister Keith Moore! It was a blessing as we listened to his various messages on reaping and harvesting what God has prepared for us. This was a weekend where you may want to listen to ALL three messages to get the full picture of what Keith was sharing. When you sow into God’s kingdom, you are planting financial seed into the ground. It is your job, however, to expect and reap a harvest! God has given you the ability to do so. In fact, your harvest is often waiting, and too many Christians don’t realize that they are supposed to actively get it by faith!

Dive Deeper:
Faith is the hand that takes what God has so graciously given. In fact, it is our responsibility to be on the lookout for our harvest. How? We need to pay attention to the leading of the Holy Spirit on the inside of us. We need to be aware of when He leads us to our harvest, and we need to be ready to obey and take our harvest.

Think for a moment about the power of the seed. If you plant seed, a multiplication process begins. A seed always works to produce miraculously more than it initially had. Reaping, however, is not automatic. We need to learn to take our harvest by faith. Claim what you need. Claim your harvest. Don’t leave your harvest up to God. Believe it. Claim it. Listen to God for His direction as to where you shall reap it!

The first generation of Israelites didn’t possess the Promised Land. They felt sorry for themselves and didn’t embrace the courageous faith that they needed to reap their rewards. On the other hand, the lady with the issue of blood pressed through the crowd and took a healing from Jesus. She didn’t even ask if it would be okay. Faith is not for the wimpy!

Religion makes beggars out of men. God wants you to possess all He has prepared for you by faith! What you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Read About It:
Galatians 6:9 KJV
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

1 Timothy 6:12 KJV
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Mark 11:24 KJV
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Luke 8:43–48 KJV
And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

Proverbs 10:5 KJV
He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.

Recent Sermon Notes

At Wit’s End | Jim Hammond

Have you ever been “at your wit’s end?” When you’ve exhausted all your emotional and physical resources and have nothing left to give, what do you do? When the Apostle Paul was at his wit’s end, the Lord gave him direction saying, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Pastor Jim went on to expound on when we are at our wit’s end, how we can lean on His grace.

Grace Unveiled, #9: Established in the Gift of Righteousness | Jim Hammond

This past weekend, Pastor Jim taught his 9th installment in his series on the book of Romans entitled, “Grace Unveiled.” The first three and a half chapters of Romans, Paul talked extensively, driving home the point, on how no one can make himself righteous in God’s eyes. The Apostle Paul didn’t leave anyone out. He listed the Pagans in the secular world, people just trying to do good, and the zealous disciplined Jews… he made sure they knew that none of them measured up in God’s eyes. No matter what they did, they would never be able to escape God’s wrath… unless there is something that appeases that judgment. That was Paul’s way of working up to a point. Paul then introduced the righteousness of God through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.

The Principle of Connection | Mac Hammond

Pastor Mac taught a message entitled, “The Principle of Connection.” Oftentimes, we struggle with obedience to the Word, where our obedience to the Word is not done in faith but out of legalism. We don’t do it from our heart, but we do it out of obligation. However, as Pastor Mac pointed out, if the Word is going to work for you, it has to come from our heart. There is a remedy that puts an end to legalistic obedience: once you understand the principle behind a particular mandate, obedience to the Word becomes exciting. Pastor Mac goes on to discuss the Principle of Connection.

A Faith-Building Weekend With Nancy Dufresne

What a weekend we had with guest minister Nancy Dufresne. She shared on the power of faith and reminded us that God and the Holy Spirit should always remain our focus. That means when we face difficulty, listening to the Holy Spirit, our guide on the inside, is the best thing that we can do. You can walk in faith toward your miracle!

GRACE UNVEILED: “All Under Sin,” #7 | Jim Hammond

Pastor Jim delivered his seventh installment in his series on the book of Romans, entitled, “Grace Unveiled.” The first three chapters of Romans focuses explicitly on the definition of sin. “Because,” as Pastor Jim says, “if you don’t understand what sin is, you will not understand the solution to the sin problem.” Paul wanted them to understand that all of mankind has a sin problem, and no matter who you are, you will never, ever be able to achieve righteousness through your own merit. If doesn’t matter if you’re a secular pagan who worships Zeus or a religious Jew who strictly follows the law, God will never see you as righteous through your own effort. Pastor Jim has much more to say in this message subtitled, “All Under Sin.”
