Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM EST.

The promises and principles of God are not conditional . . . based on your circumstances and situations.

First, “everything reproduces after its own kind”.

Genesis 1:11 AMPC

“And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.”

Galatians 6:7 AMPC

“Be not deceived [fooled]; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

Genesis 1:11 NLT

“. . . these seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.”

Job 4:8 KJV

“Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.”

The seed you plant always determines the kind of harvest you reap.

Luke 6:38 KJV

“Give, and it [that which you have given] shall be given unto you…” .

Galatians 6:7 KJV

“whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.“

Second, sowing and reaping will never leave cease to exist.

Genesis 8:28 KJV

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

Genesis 8:28 MSG

“For as long as Earth lasts. . .”

Third, the convenient time to sow will never come

Ecclesiastes 11:4 AMPC

“He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.”

Ecclesiastes 11:4 TLB

“If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done.”

Fourth, there is a spiritual dynamic in sowing and reaping.

2 Corinthians 9:6 AMPC

“[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings.”

2 Corinthians 9:6 TLB

But remember this—if you give little, you will get little. A farmer who plants just a few seeds will get only a small crop, but if he plants much, he will reap much.”

Luke 21:3-5 AMPC

“And He saw also a poor widow putting in two mites (copper coins).  And He said, Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them;  For they all gave out of their abundance (their surplus); but she has contributed out of her lack and her want, putting in all that she had on which to live.”.

The significance of your seed is based on what you have left after you’ve sown.

2 Corinthians 8:12 NKJV

“For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.”

Fifth, we should never doubt that our harvest is coming.

Galatians 6:7 AMPC

 “Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.

Galatians 6:9 AMPC

“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.”

Isaiah 40:28 AMPC

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding.”

Isaiah 40:29 AMPC

“He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].”

God is doing things for you right now that you can’t see so He can bring into manifestation the things that you can see.

Sixth, His first priority should be our first priority.

Haggai 1:6-8 AMPC

“You have sown much, but you have reaped little; you eat, but you do not have enough; you drink, but you do not have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages has earned them to put them in a bag with holes in it.”

First, if God tells you to give, you need to give.

Second, you must be sure there are no hindrances. . .so nothing will hinder the free flow of God’s abundant provision into your life

Thirdly, you’ve got to know there is a devil who will do any and everything possible to keep you from receiving God’s abundance into your life.

Haggai 1:7 AMPC

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways (your previous and present conduct) and how you have fared.”

Haggai 1:8 AMPC

“Go up to the hill country and bring lumber and rebuild [My] house, and I will take pleasure in it and I will be glorified, says the Lord [by accepting it as done for My glory and by displaying My glory in it].”

Seventh, He will give seed to the sower.

2 Corinthians 9:10 AMPC

“And [God] Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your [resources for] sowing and increase the fruits of your righteousness [[a]which manifests itself in active goodness, kindness, and charity].”

2 Corinthians 9:10 NLT

“For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great

Seed doesn’t come when you pray. . .it comes when you sow..
